    Welcome to the first ever video game characters tournament!

    Okay, so the tournament is about who would beat who from some game, and you vote for who would beat who. So I'm going to start first with the Mario series. And of course, the first game of the series. And thanks to Optimus Solo for letting me use his idea of this tournament. Okay, let's start this thing!

    This whole video game section gets more and more confusing.

    Shellcreepers were turtle enemies from Mario Bros. Never did get why they didn't just call them Koopas.


    Oh, and I haven't seen a fight this one-sided since Samus in Metroid Fusion with all her powerups against.... well, pretty much every regular enemy in the game at that point :D

    I called them Shellcreepers because they was called that in the first Mario game. Koopa Troopas will be in there too.

    And Shellcreepers are not Koopa's, but they are related to them.

    Technically, if they are from the first Mario game, you don't jump on them, instead you hit them from underneath.

    Am I right?

    Are we Gamefaqs now?

    And Mario is weak as hell, all you have to do is touch him and he dies.

    No. We have dignity and intelligence :D 

    Also im not keen on these polls as its always obvious who is gonna be the most chosen before anything has started.

    Why is it never Mario vs Link or Cloud vs Snake? at least then it may be slightly close in the polls rather than a landslide. So i'm picking the Koopa Troopa.

    It's called buildup, same reason pro sports put the #1 versus the #8 in the first round, ups the potential of seeing the top two in the finals.

    Yeah but its a fictional contest not a sports event. Is it really that enthralling picking a popular option over a nobody multiple times to just get one decent poll at the end? :eek: 

    Also i'm glad im one of the few to have picked "Shellcreeper" :)
