NOTE: Before anybody bashes me for this, I would like to say that Lady Vulpix has actually recommended me to do it in this format. Needless to say, I'm going with the flow. If you haven't heard, there is a similar tournament going on at GameFAQs (http://www.gamefaqs.com) among video game characters, and as strange as it may seem, they have their very own message board for it. Many people are already doing what I am doing, so if you consider it strange, alien, unfamiliar, or otherwise repetitive, don't blame me--blame Jjukil for promoting them. Round 2 officially started August 3rd, and thanks to brave folks like mr_pikachu, who broke some very last-second ties, I have been able to construct the 16 match-ups that are Round 2. Votes for Round 2 will be valid until August 11th, when the Division Semifinals begin.

RULES: The rules are simple: vote for who you like better as a reply. That's it. Whoever gets more votes advances to Division Semifinals. It's basically a popularity tournament. (You may be surprised at who advanced over whom.)

I picked Vegeta as the DBZ rep with the same reason why I picked Wallaby over Nigel for KND and Kit over Baloo for TaleSpin--because they are (at least in my opinion) better representatives for their respective shows. It's also because of such domination of Goku in last year's polls that I decided to even things out. (Yes, he made more of an impact than Homer Simpson, though I should have picked a less popular Simpsons character to contend with the others.)

I was very close to putting Yusuke Urameshi on the list (as well as Naruto), but then I realized that the Shonen Jump impact was already controlling much of the division--Vegeta, Yugi, and Luffy. The anime world is so diverse that devoting a quarter to Shonen Jump characters (and another quarter to animation outcasts) would leave little room for anything else. I also excluded Spike Spiegel because Vash the Stampede is already on the list. I'm not sure if the two shows are made by the same people (it sure looks that way though), but apparently, at least on Cartoon Network, the two shows are treated almost synonymously. Actually, I forgot about him. He was in last year's though.

#1 Mickey is old-schooling #8 Genie, 13-9
#4 Donald is quacking up #5 Simba, 16-7
#3 Buzz is toying with #11 Kim, 16-6
#2 Popeye is vegefying #10 Sully, 18-4

Division 2

Divison 1-Disney/Fleischer
#1 Mickey Mouse (Mickey Mouse) vs. #8 Genie (Aladdin)
Never mess with the magic mouse! He's got a whole theme park behind him!

#5 Simba (The Lion King) vs. #4 Donald Duck (Donald Duck)
A lion verses a duck? No such luck for Donald.

#11 Kim Possible (Kim Possible) vs. #3 Buzz Lightyear (Toy Story)
This makes me think of a child's version of Lara Croft vs. Indiana Jones. And Indy can easily cream Lara.

#10 James P. Sullivan (Monsters, Inc.) vs. #2 Popeye (Popeye)
Monsters always triumph over man, as fictional cartoons and movies have taught us.

Division 2-Universal/Viacom
#16 Underdog (Underdog) vs. #8 Inspector John "Gadget" Brown (Inspector Gadget)
Underdog is bullet-proof, can endure tons of weight upon him, blows from sledge-hammers and super-strong mutants, and much more. Gadget, as cool as he is, has nothing in his inventory that could stop Underdog, since most of them are toys.

#5 Timmy Turner (The Fairly OddParents) vs. #13 Alvin Seville (Alvin and the Chipmunks)
Alvin is pretty formidable on his own, especially if he starts to sing; Timmy will run away in fear of getting his high-pitched voice stuck in his head.

#6 Bullwinkle J. Moose (The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle) vs. #3 Rocko (Rocko's Modern Life)
Oh, come on. Let's analyze these two:
Bullwinkle J. Moose - Good things happen to him because he is accident-prone.
Rocko - Bad things happen to him because he is accident-prone.
It's no contest. Rocko is heading for a lot of pain like he always does.

#7 Angelica Pickles (Rugrats) vs. #15 Invader ZIM (Invader ZIM)
Except for being rude and annoying, what on earth could Angelica do to defeat ZIM?

Division 3-Warner Bros./Fox
#1 Homer J. Simpson (The Simpsons) vs. #8 Samurai Jack (Samurai Jack)
DOH! Chalk up another for Homer, the dense, pain-enduring dummy whom things go well for. Plus, he's got his family to help him out.

#5 Peter Griffin (Family Guy) vs. #13 Freakazoid (Freakazoid!)
Freakazoid is not only powerful, but he has Steven Speilberg right behind him! Peter's not going to win this.

#11 Philip J. Fry (Futurama) vs. #3 Jerry Mouse (Tom & Jerry)
Jerry is pretty good at avoiding danger, but Fry is good at starting it! Jerry's downfall has to come sometime; Tom was never good enough to stop him.

#10 Dexter (Dexter's Laboratory) vs. #2 Fred Flintstone (The Flintstones)
When a civil war starts in Hanna-Barbera! Anyway, on to the fight. A scientist genius against a caveman? Come on, that is so obvious. Dexter will spray a perfume called 'Ode to Dino', and the purple dinosaur will keep Fred busy for the rest of the battle.

Division 4-Anime/Miscellaneous
#1 Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z) vs. #9 Vash the Stampede (Trigun)
Now normally, I would think that Vegeta has his limits, and can be stopped. However, Vash defeated Jason Fox, and that makes me mad. Very mad. Give 'em hell for me, Vegeta!

#5 Luffy D. Monkey (One Piece) vs. #4 Ranma Saotome (Ranma 1/2)
I don't know much about Ranma, but she is better looking than Luffy, which tips the scales for a single guy like me. ;)

#6 Calvin (Calvin & Hobbes) vs. #3 Shrek (Shrek)
Calvin may be clever, but so is Shrek. And the green ogre out-weighs, out-muscles and out-does Calvin in every catagory.

#7 Ash Ketchum (Pokémon) vs. #15 Wallace (Wallace & Gromit)
Aw, do I have to choose between Pokémon and a witty English claymation show that is so fun to quote? Very well. I guess I'll pick Wallace, because while Ash has Pokémon, Wallace has a rocket-scientist dog for help! Sic' em, Gromit!

Hey, Dr_Omicron, I have a question. Where are the other votes coming from? Other message boards and such? Just curious.

3rd August 2003, 09:21 PM
Hey, SilverMachop, that's the most interesting post I've seen all day. Anyway, to answer your question, I also post this poll in The GameFAQs Summer 2003 Contest Board (http://s3.cgi.gamefaqs.com/boards/gentopic.asp?board=8) and Pokémon Phenomenon (aol://5863:126/mB:414621). The GameFAQs board has given me a pretty cold reception right from the start, but if you look hard enough, you can find some of the matches. (I'm "Dudamon" there.) Don't bother loking for Round 1 in Pokémon Phenomenon--it got caught up in The Host's weekly sweeps of random topics. Round 2 is there though. And I'll update the scores in a sec and learn how to use Bracket Maker.

4th August 2003, 02:13 AM
All right, I'm a tie-breaker! Woo hoo! What about the tie I caused? Were you for or against my choice? HMMMM?? Well, on to the main topic I came to discuss.

Non-religious? What do you define as "non-religious"? Are we talking atheists, or just people who don't take part in vows of silences, fasting weeks, ritual ceremonies, etc.? Because I'm the second, but I assure you, not the first. Anyway, I tried watching a few episodes of The Simpsons. Really, I did! But I found that I'd much rather be on here or surfing the rest of the net than watching it. It just seemed too dumb for my tastes. But I guess I can understand why other people like it, as it does have it's good points. It's just not for me.

And I do have an ever-so-slight bias against people whose vocabularies have less than 500 words. Including "doh". There's MY two cents. Oh, wait, maybe that was a nickel...

Gadget rocks.

#5 Timmy Turner (The Fairly OddParents) vs. #13 Alvin Seville (Alvin and the Chipmunks)
In this case, its beauty before age. In reality, Alvin is even older than Timmy' Dad. Oh, SilverMachop, remember Timmy's pink and green haired friends? All Timmy needs to wish for is earplugs.

Rocko!

Freddy beat Mandy? Bad Fred! Good Dexter!

Division 4-Anime/Miscellaneous
#1 Vegeta (Dragon Ball Z) vs. #9 Vash the Stampede (Trigun)
Neither... Ugh.

#5 Luffy D. Monkey (One Piece) vs. #4 Ranma Saotome (Ranma 1/2)
Uh... Ranma?

#6 Calvin (Calvin & Hobbes) vs. #3 Shrek (Shrek)
Calvin, go get Hobbes! Oh, wait, he's a stuffed tiger!

#7 Ash Ketchum (Pokémon) vs. #15 Wallace (Wallace & Gromit)
Ash vs. CLAY???

Oh well, Mandy and Tai didn't make it through. I now support Timmy and Peter Griffin.
