In case ya didn’t know, GameFAQs is running another one of their “Character Battles”, a place where video games’ greatest characters duke it out for your vote. Unfortunately, Zidane was taken down by Squirtle (pffffffft), but Vivi pulled a HUGE upset over Mario and Ganondorf the other day. Here’s the map of the vote breakdown, with blue being a Mario country, Green for Vivi, and Red for Ganondorf:
As you can see, Europe and southeast Asia were big supporters of the Vivi cause, which is great. However, it’s not like Vivi won a landslide victory – out of about 40,000 votes cast in this character battle, Vivi beat out mario by 0.18%… or 74 votes. Intense.
Vivi had a great victory, but he’s got a long way to go before he claims that crown, and there are still some other big names (Sephiroth, Link, Pokemon Trainer Red) in the running.
But you know what? I’m feelin’ it. It’s Character Battle IX, after all; maybe it’s time that a character from the greatest game of all time stood up against the everyday, run-of-the-mill winners… and took them down.
He’s already beat Mario, one of the most iconic video game characters ever.
Let’s band together and show the world what Vivi can do.
Vivi’s next battle is on September 8th. He’ll be facing the winners of the battles between Squall, Amaterasu, Missingno, and Wario, Pokémon Trainer Red, Urdnot Wrex. If he wins that, he’ll be in the “Final Nine”, with only one Battle keeping him from the Final.
All right, guys. If y’all know any Vivi fans out there, let them know.
