Here we are… the final four. A surprising four perhaps. Are you shocked? Are you not? Vote and let us know below.
Peach ended up coming quite far in this race. She knocked out Dark Pit, Cloud, and even my beloved Pac-Man! However, she was no match for the heroic Link from The Legend of Zelda series. His win was mighty at a voting split of 12/4. No contest.
The other match ups were much closer. All of them were 9/7 splits. A mere two votes different each. Mr. Game & Watch was one of Nintendo's earliest mascots with the Game & Watch series. Perhaps it was for this fact that Donkey Kong was not able to brute-force his way through to the Final Four.
The third match up was a tough one. Pikachu versus Villager. Both were quite beloved throughout the bracket. Pikachu has the fact that it was there from the beginning and is one of the most beloved Pokemon in that series. Villager was a surprise guest who I personally had been waiting many years for. When Villager came on the scene there were plenty of images of him and his axe, a signature move, being sinister and it seems his sinister behavior pushed him into the Final Four. Pikachu went back to it's poke ball.
Finally we had two rather 'robotic' heroes. One tall, one short. Samus Aran versus Mega Man. In terms of their Super Smash Bros. power, Samus is well known for having a great long-game with the power to close the deal when needed. Mega Man is known as a unique character where his forward-smash is a projectile by default. In the end, with so many factors coming into play by these two, Mega Man managed to slide his way to the Final Four and leaving Samus to head back to find 'the baby'.
We now have four left. As I did last time, we will vote on all possible outcomes so that it is a bit harder to immediately discern who is/will win. I will still be following the rules and standards of the bracket format but it's a bit mixed for a bit of fun. There are some bonus votes too. Please vote in all of these if you would. Thank you.--------------------------------------------------------------------------
