Round Three begins and the fight is ever growing more desperate for each Smash Character. All the jokers are out and now we've got a lineup of the best of the best… but who will be the best?
The Hammer Bracket:
Cloud was a newcomer who attracted a lot of attention. However it was Peach's delicate yet strong sense of will that allowed her over double the votes and a movement forward in this bracket. Pac-Man was another newcomer who attracted a lot of attention, however his match versus Kirby was much closer. Despite this, the yellow round-ball beat out the pink puffball! Two heroes starting with L found themselves against each other next. However at a ratio of 4:1, Link sliced Lucas down to his tiny little size. When Wario went up against Rosalina and her Luma, she was left in the stardust… or starfarts… and lost heavily against Wario, who took the most votes this round compared to their opponent.
The Dragoon Bracket:
Most of the matches here were definitive but there was one which was not… Ike and King Dedede… they tossed blows back and forth ending up at an even eight votes. Instead of in the past where I hounded non-voters for their votes and figured out things that way, this being a Super Smash Bros. bracket I am able to settle this a bit differently… with an epic brawl! I booted up my copy of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, set each character to 9, and stuck them in Wuhu Island Omega Version… without items, they duked it out… so who won? That character moves forward in this bracket! Watch the epic battle below!
With that, we find King moving forward. Sure it came down to a Sudden Death, but that's fitting for how close these two polled. Next there was some real love for Sheik but Mr. Game & Watch won people over with his quirks. Sonic came in hot and came in fast but somewhat surprisingly, Donkey Kong jungle-beat the competition at a little over double the votes. Finally it was a somewhat close race with some oldies. The Ice-Climbers were up against old favorite, Captain Falcon. The Ice-Climbers made the mistake of asking Mr. Falcon to show them his moves… and so he did… and so out they went.
The Lip's Stick Bracket:
Starting the Lip's Stick bracket was Pikachu electrifying the competition with a strong victory over Marth. Another Fire Emblem character bites the dust. Next, Ganondorf, the King of Evil, showed his dominance over Snake with another definitive win. In the third matchup, folks had a lot of love for Bowser and had a hard time voting against him. Despite those urges, Villager took a strong and commanding win over the rough lizard. Finally, Little Mac punched out another competitor by taking out Robin. Another Fire Emblem character bids the dust.
The Smash Ball Bracket:
Zero Suit Samus may be out of the competition but her fully-armored alternate is not. Up against Toon Link, Samus showed that a missile to the face was harsher than a boomerang to the butt. In one of the most definite wins this whole bracket, Duck Hunt finally took out Mii Fighter whose time was probably up a long time ago. Young Link was yet another Link clone, or at least kind-of-clone, who didn't make it out of this set. R.O.B., the only character based on actual Nintendo hardware, knocked him back to Termina. Finally, in yet another definitive win, Mega Man blasted Fox off his game and sent him back to his own galaxy. Mega Man has some real fight in him!
