Great Bay I guess, although I'm sort of surprised by the final choices here because both are kind of... ok. Neither is in my top 10. Foreshadowing!

(13) Great Bay (Melee) vs. (8) Saffron City (N64)

Two of my favorites. Saffron City, to me, is one of the most memorable stages in the whole series. It's a well-designed stage that really has it all, it's the complete package. Well-designed for 2-player or 4-player battle, mostly standard but asymmetric, and with some twists that make it stand out. And Great Bay has a lot of the same qualities. In the end, Saffron City is one of the first stages that comes to mind when I think of the classic Smash Bros. stages that have a special place in my heart. Two deserving winners, but like Highlander, there can be only one.

(56) PictoChat (Brawl) vs. (49) WarioWare, Inc (Brawl) - (two similar stages)
(47) Smashville (Brawl) vs. (64) Pirate Ship (Brawl) - (DrFink's all-time favorites)
(19) Onett (Melee/Brawl) vs. (32) Fourside (Melee) - (Earthbound stages)

1. Still Saffron > Corneria.
2. Both are cool and unique, but I've always had more fun with the PictoChat stage.
3. Pirate Ship is a really good stage, and just had a lot of bad matchups in this tournament where it went up against stages I preferred. Smashville never did anything for me.
4. Onett is a classic, and I don't know why the inferior Fourside made it further (probably matchups, again).

EDIT: And for full disclosure, I'd speculate that 6 of the final 8 would be in my Top 10 overall Smash levels. Mushroom Kingdom II would probably just miss the cut, and Fourside wouldn't be anywhere near my Top 10. I really enjoy most of the stages that made it deep in the tournament.

1.) Great Bay for sure! I love the Majora's Mask representation and the unique design of the level.

2.) Saffron City would get my vote if Corneria had won though. Saffron City is a good stage that I began to appreciate more the more I saw it in this bracket.
3.) PictoChat was a bit more fun for me.
4.) Pirate Ship! I've said enough on this subject.
5.) Onett, easy. Like TheBigG said, I don't quite know why it didn't go as far as Fourside... besides the randomness of matchups.

Nailed it. Same for me.

What an interesting turn out.
Saffron City is probably my favourite SSB stage, and Great Bay is one of my top Melee stages, but there are better out there!

As for the bonuses, while I do love Corneria, Saffron gets my vote by a hair.
I am one of the few here who finds the Wario Ware stage to be a little too distracting. I like the idea, but it just feels messy to me.
Pirate Ship is possibly the bet stage ever.
Onett is a tight stage, and I'm happy to have it back again soon! I do like Fourside, but it is a little too big for a stage with so many pits.

Second to Hyrule Castle would probably be Saffron City, another awesome stage from the original game.

(19) Onett (Melee/Brawl) vs. (32) Fourside (Melee) - (Earthbound stages)

1. Few stages top Saffron... maybe even just one.
2. WarioWare was a good idea but felt poorly-executed, PictoChat could use a few tweaks but still works decently.
3. Smashville is totally boring, Pirate Ship is one of the few good stages from Brawl.
4. I like both but the spire in the middle of Fourside slows things down a bit. Could use more air space as well.

If Great Bay wins this I'll be mystified.

It feels odd to vote against Great Bay. I love the stage. I think great bay has so many fond memories for me simply because Melee was made so well. But as an actual stage, Saffron might get the slight edge to me.

-Saffron for sure beats out Corneria, though Corneria is such a fun classic.
-WarioWare has issues, particularly it needs to be wider, but its concept works better and is more fun.
-Smashville is boring, whereas Pirate Ship is loads of fun.
-This one is actually close to me simply because Fourside can make for some awesome, strategic 2-player games. But I admit Onett is the better stage.

Thanks for voting everyone so far! We're one vote away from 200 total votes over the bracket period and there's currently 8 people who have voted previously who haven't voted yet in the final round. Not sure if they all will but I would love if everyone who participated finished it out. Maybe I'll send some PMs...

On this wonderful forum, nobody is going to vote any further? We have that few Smash players here? Nahh...

@DrFinkelstein
I hear your cries for more votes but I just want to clear my name. I have not played enough Smash to have an opinion on these, like at all. I rarely pay any heed to the stages because I have never really gone that deep into a Smash game.

That is changing this year, obvs, but I just wanted to let you know that I'd love to vote but I'm not qualified. We're all about transparency here at Super_Conzo.

(13) Great Bay (Melee) vs. (8) Saffron City (N64)

Maybe for the first time ever, I'm voting Pokemon over Zelda. It's close--while I definitely prefer the atmosphere and music of Great Bay, as a Smash Bros stage, Saffron City is better laid-out and one of the best levels on the N64. Still, I'm very surprised these are our final two!


(11) Corneria (Melee/Brawl) vs. (8) Saffron City (N64) - (tie breaker alternate universe)
(56) PictoChat (Brawl) vs. (49) WarioWare, Inc (Brawl) - (two similar stages)

(19) Onett (Melee/Brawl) vs. (32) Fourside (Melee) - (Earthbound stages)

Stink on you guys for eliminating the Pirate Ship...
