Just realized that Sephiroth had to go through Captain Falcon and Ryu last contest, just like Cloud did in 2010. Interesting coincidence.

Doesn't direct extrapolation from 2010 have Ryu getting about the same % on Sephiroth that he got last contest? What happened to Ryu?

Super rallies that have won contests: L-Block 2007, Draven 2010, Undertale 2015. That's it. That's the entire list. You could maybe make a case for something like Majora's Mask in 2009, but it's hard to pinpoint the difference between s***-kicking badass and a rally that swamped an entire contest. The difference is probably everyone agreeing that without a rally, an entrant has no chance of winning a contest.

Can we agree way more than three super rallies failed or do I have to actually list them all? Summer 2002 alone had three (Cloud, Mario, Crono), and arguably six if you include Seph/Samus/Mega Man, that all failed to actually win that contest.

Or are we only allowed to include actual fodder or jokes? Because in Summer 2008 alone Zack, Cube, Sandbag, L-Block, and Master Chief all caught lightning in a bottle. Lopen even called the last one. They all eventually got their asses whooped. If you include actual decent characters in there, you could possibly even argue Dante, Pikachu, and Snake were being mega-rallied as a counter to what was going on, because the entire deal that year was everyone arguing over rallies and scouring the internet for help. That entire contest was the year joke characters and rallies took over and all canceled each other out.

Past that Missingno was rallied and lost. Starcraft rallied and lost. Link, of all people, has rallied and lost multiple times. You can in fact get rallied and still lose. Hell I still think Link would have beaten Draven without our site getting DDoS'd and Allen pretending the timing was total coincidence. I love how he spent that entire contest asking Reddit to vote, then got pissy once Reddit voted.

Probably nothing. Just a weird match. If you want to point to anything, you can point to SFV's poor reception.

also I think you can see what Draven and Undertale have in common that literally all those other examples don't

they were able to take advantage of the fact that the site's innate vote totals have plummeted since the end of 2010

plus L-Block and Draven didn't even have to get 50% of the votes to win, which helped them weather the early rounds; L-Block probably doesn't even survive round 2 if Kirby doesn't get LFF'd by DK

I still can't believe it has been 9 years that Draven won. Damn! I feel old. But then again I remember that contest and the one that Undertale won the most since well so many topics and posts and all that stuff.
Hope in the new contest we have something excited. Otherwise we should stop making them.
So why we exist? What happens when we stop existing?

It hasn't been. Draven was 2013, not 2010.

We lost Chrono Trigger either giving OoT the fight of its life or even winning straight up. No gimmicks or handicaps involved.

Also, in 2013, Snake almost certainly would have won the finals against Link and a Nintendo third wheel.

Link isn't the only one who kicks ass.

That one hurts.

Zelda would go as low as the fanbase needed her to go for Link to win.
