Best Final Fantasy Character Ever: ROUND 2, DAY 33: Auron (FF10) vs. Ramza (FFT)

#1MagmaYoshiPosted 4/26/2012 9:26:56 AM
**SPOILERS AHEAD!**

Welcome to ROUND 2, MATCH 33 of the "Best Final Fantasy Character Ever" tournament! This tournament will determine the best character in the Final Fantasy series. After going through an intense nomination process, we have narrowed the contestants down to 64 nominees, with representation from almost all corners of the FF universe.

This is how it will work. Every day, I will post two contestants. All you have to do is vote for the character you think is the better of the two. At exactly 12pm EST, voting will freeze and any votes past that will not be counted.

Some ground rules:

1.) I would really prefer you copy-paste the previous voters' "Current standings" posted to prevent me from having to go through the topic and count each one. However, I won't disqualify your vote if you fail to read.

2.) You are only allowed to vote once per match, but feel free to discuss as much as you want.

3.) If you don't know anything about one of the characters (ie you haven't played their game), please abstain. It's not fair to that character.

4.) Please be very clear when casting your vote.

5.) You may not vote if your account was made AFTER the tournament began on March 17. I would impose a karma requirement but that has the possibility of weeding out real voters.

6.) In the event of a tie, sudden death will be entered at 12am (midnight) EST and the first contestant to reach five votes will win.

Here is the bracket with all of the matchups:

Yesterday, in a rather predictable, but only fair fashion, Cloud Strife (FF7) Omnislash'd Snow Villiers (FF13) down a few pegs 56-25. Snow just couldn't compete with a character as deep and complex as Cloud. Cloud will move on to face Cid Highwind (FF7) in Round 2, which starts TODAY!

Welcome to the first match of Round 2!

To start off, we have Auron vs. Ramza. Looks like matches are going to start getting really interesting.

On the one hand, Auron is FFX's resident badass and gets ALL the one-liners. Ramza is remembered for being heroic in the face of any evil and never succumbing to temptations and the forces of darkness. But really, Ramza was too one-dimensional for me to give him my vote, so it goes to Auron (FF10).

Current Standings:
Auron (FF10) [01]
Ramza Beoulve (FFT) [00]

Ramza, he's one of my favourite FF heroes.
Nothing against Auron, though.

Auron, a favorite from FFX, and a pretty slick Samurai.
