    So I've wanted to do this for a while now, but I've been busy with school. Since the summer has commenced and I'm not working, I think it's time I get this thing under way.

    Welcome to the First Annual Video Game Character Showdown! (unless someone has done it before me)

    I have a few rules before we commence, but I do think they're too mean. If you are unclear at all, don't hesitate to ask.:

    1) Pick 8 Video Game characters from any game. If the same character represents multiple games, just write the series (ex: Link from the Zelda series, not Link from OoT). Please do this for every character, even obvious ones. It will make my life easier.

    2) The competition is for Video Game characters ONLY. What this means is that the character must be exclusively in video games, or was made famous through video games (ex: Max Payne). Characters such as Darth Vader, Spiderman, or Homer Simpson are NOT welcome, as they are primarily characters from other media, but just have video games. The character must have originally starred in a video game. Pokémon are welcome (if there was any confusion about that).

    3) No M.U.G.E.N characters, for the same reason

    4) The character DOES NOT have to be playable, nor do they have to be the main character of a story. Get creative, but don't get ridiculous.

    5) In the case of a tie, I will have the tiebreaker vote.

    I plan to have 128 combatants, but we'll see how many nominations we get.

    My nominations:

    Auron (FF series)
    Sol Badguy (Guilty Gear series)
    Kratos (God of War series)
    Mewtwo (Pokémon series)
    Amaterasu (Okami)
    Daxter (Jak and Daxter series)
    Jack (Harvest Moon series)
    Geno (Super Mario RPG)

    Read the rules before posting, as I don't want to correct anyone who puts down Vader or Goku. Other than that, you guys know how this is done.

    This looks rather familiar....

    Black Mage (Finfal Fantasy series)
    Guybrush Threepwood (Monkey Island Series)
    Dirk the Daring (Dragon's Lair)
    Mallow (Super Mario RPG)
    Octorock (Legend of Zelda)
    The King of All Cosmos (Katamari Damnacy)
    Clive Winston (Guitar Hero)
    Ramza Belouve (Final Fantasy Tactics)

    yeah....none of these guys will win at all, but I love variety in these things. I encourage everyone else to put two or three random characters in your choices.

    I really do like the random choices Links, especially Mallow.

    Ya, I know. I was actually going to start mine before you re-vamped yours, but school had other plans. I also waited until yours was done, because I didn't want to start a competition or any hostilities of the sort.

    No need to worry about hostilities or anything. Although doing two similar showdowns at once would of been too much, methinks.

    Lentium, could you change your last choice? It's a little bit too obscure

    Thank you Links.

    And please do make sure your characters weren't chosen, De-Ting, you have to re-pick someone instead of Isaac. And Amaniac, Battle Fortress Driver is a little obscure. Could you pick someone else?
