128 characters. 4 characters battle, 2 move on. It's all or nothing.

The users of GameFAQs have nominated 128 video game characters and it's time to let them battle it out. Starting September 3rd (tentative), the 128-character winner-take-all tournament will begin. Using the Poll of the Day to decide, the most popular character will take the this year's title.

Year number six of the Character Battle is an all-out melee: Each day of the poll, four characters will battle it out, and the top two characters will move on. There's no championship round, no characters are held back, and there's no (visible) seeding.

Your mission is simple: Choose which two characters will survive each day's battle. Fill out your best guess at how the final brackets will turn out, and win a prize. Don't forget: This is not a contest to see which character is your favorite, or even which one is the most powerful. It's all a big popularity contest, and visitors who have never visited GameFAQs before will be sure to stop in and vote.

For each of the 63 battles, pick the first and second place characters who will move on from each day's poll. For the first round of 32 polls, picking each one of the correct characters to move on from day's poll will score two points each for the correct order, and one point for the wrong order (i.e. picking the first place character to finish second or vice versa). For each successive round, picking the winners will earn double the points of the round before (Round 2: 4/2 points, Division Final: 8/4 points, Quarter-Finals: 16/8 points, Semi-final: 32/16 points, Final: 64/32 points). The sum of all points earned is your final score.

A valid GameFAQs Universal account is required to create a bracket, and in order to be eligible for the prizes, you must provide your real name and address. Once you fill out your bracket initially, you can make as many changes as you like, but you can only enter for prizes once per household or Internet connection, so if you share board accounts with others, make sure only one of you enters a prizes-eligible bracket. Due to legal restrictions, only residents of the US and Canada may enter the contest for prizes, but anyone with an account may enter a bracket (or more than one) for fun and bragging rights. You may enter as many times with a "Fun Entry" as you like, but only one "Contest Entry" will be permitted.

Remember: This is a popularity contest, and nothing more. While we do make every effort to stop individuals from voting numerous times without restricting anyone from voting that wants to legitimately, outside forces can and will attempt to push the vote for their favorite. As in the past, we reserve the right intervene in the daily tally when there is a clear evidence of mass voting fraud. Take all of the above into the account when filling out your bracket!

This year's prizes:

  • Second and Third Place: $250 online gift certificate
  • Fourth and Fifth Place: $100 online gift certificate
  • Sixth-Tenth Places: $50 online gift certificate
