2016 Anime Villains Tournament - Character Nominations Thread



  • Once again, that time is upon us. Time for the bad guys to take the stage and see who's the best of the best.

    So as the title of the thread says, this is the nomination thread and if anyone has questions this is what I've done each time with the tournament. I don't profess to know everything about anime so of course I need help with characters to fill out the roster.

    I am aiming for either 128 or 256 total depending on how many nominations I get. As I've done with the previous tournaments I already have 20 automatic qualifiers thanks to JesuOtaku's video that inspired this idea in the first place. Unfortunately things have change in the past year (in some very unexpected ways) so the original link is dead, thankfully I found the video uploaded somewhere else, but broken into two parts.

    https://vimeo.com/140677006

    For those that don't want to watch the videos or just don't have the time (it is pretty long after all) I'll list the automatic qualifiers here.

    Johan Liebert - Monster (2010 Champion)
    Legato Bluesummers - Trigun
    Light Yagami - Death Note
    Sosuke Aizen - Bleach
    Ladd Russo - Baccano! (2014 Champion)
    Griffith - Berserk
    Makoto Shishio - Rurouni Kenshin
    Shinobu Sensui - Yu Yu Hakusho
    Frieza - Dragonball Z (2011 Champion)
    The Major - Hellsing Ultimate
    Gankutsuou - Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo
    Dio Brando - Jojo's Bizzare Adventure
    Darcia The Third - Wolf's Rain
    Nakago - Fushigi Yuugi
    Akio Ohtori - Revolutionary Girl Utena
    Gauron - Full Metal Panic
    Chouji Suitengu - Speed Grapher
    Vicious - Cowboy Bebop
    Hellmaster Phibrizzo - Slayers Next
    Queen Delphine Eraclea - Last Exile

    …also, since she was last year's champion and the very first female winner, Medusa Gorgon from Soul Eater is also an automatic entry this year.

    So yeah… have at it folks, this thread will be open for nominations possibly until the end of this month. A long time but hopefully it won't be necessary.

    Only a few rules for nominations here:

    • Each person can not suggest more than 15 villains
      ** This is for the sake one one person not overwhelming the nominations list.
    • Each person can only suggest 1 individual villain per anime
      ** You can't nominate groups, Team Rocket for example, but you could pick Jesse, James, or Meowth
      ** Possible allowed exceptions for the above would along the lines of Hänsel and Gretel from Black Lagoon, if you've seen it, you'll understand.
      ** You can't just pick all the villains from the same show or franchise. If you nominate Frieza, then you can't also throw in Cell and/or Majin Buu.
    • A character is allowed to be nominated as long as they were portrayed as villainous at some point in their respective anime.
      ** For example Satsuki Kiryūin could be nominated due to her actions prior to certain plot points being revealed later on in the show.

    To make things clear, just because I say that an individual can not suggest more than one character from the same series or franchise does not mean that it applies to the final group of participants for the tournament. Who makes the final cut for the 128 (or 256) depends on who gets nominated and how many times.

  • @classyspartan:

    15. Junko Enoshima - Danganronpa: The Animation

    I REMEMBER THE SH*T THAT HAPPENED WITH #15 LAST YEAR so if she's auto-disqualified I have another choice.

    At the moment, I'm leaning towards allowing her in this year. I am gonna hope for the best and assume it was just some odd thing, like that one time years ago when James from Team Rocket nearly won the Best Anime Character tournament. Or the "Ghost Nappa" thing that plagued my first Anime Villains Tournament. All in all, I'll let her in, but if something seems fishy like before, I won't hesitate to disqualify her again.

    15. Junko Enoshima - Danganronpa: The Animation

    Welp, looks like it's my duty to make sure she loses in the first round.



  • @Heavenspiercing:

    Welp, looks like it's my duty to make sure she loses in the first round.

    As long as it isn't as shady as all of her vacated wins last year.



  • @kingrider:

    12. Laxus Dreyar (Fairy Tail)

    I don't think reformed villains are allowed here.



  • @iamshodan:

    I don't think reformed villains are allowed here.

    From the official rules on the first page:

    @LuckySeven:

    • A character is allowed to be nominated as long as they were portrayed as villainous at some point in their respective anime.
      ** For example Satsuki Kiryūin could be nominated due to her actions prior to certain plot points being revealed later on in the show.

    So yes, as he was kind of a douchebag in the early episodes of the show, I'd say that Laxus is eligible.



  • @SpacemanHardy:

    as he was kind of a douchebag

    lol you could say that,

    ! Attempted genocide is in my opinion an evil act lol



  • Just a heads up, nominations are still open, so keep 'em coming.



  • As far as the "authenticity" of the votes go, I highly recommend leaving the poll results public. This will allow us to see the usernames of everyone who is voting in the poll. I also highly recommend suggesting to all voters to please post their choice in the forums as well.

    This will help us see who among the voters are forum regulars, and who are just here for the poll. If we start seeing a bunch of new users with names we don't recognize, then we'll know something is up.

    Also, as a moderator, I have access to certain "skills" and tools that will help me tell if something is going fishy. Rest assured, I will be watching this contest like a hawk, so if ANYONE tries to cheat and I find out about it - and believe me, I WILL FIND OUT ABOUT IT - I will make them regret it for sure.



  • Now's as good a time as any to ask. Is the 15 nomination limit lifted now or we still rolling with that? All for the purpose for increasing the nominee count of course to get you either 128/256 acceptable candidates.



  • @SpacemanHardy:

    I also highly recommend suggesting to all voters to please post their choice in the forums as well.

    do they count as a second vote this time as well?

    @classyspartan:

    Is the 15 nomination limit lifted now or we still rolling with that?

    I think we should lol



  • @alagor:

    do they count as a second vote this time as well?

    I've always used the posted votes for the sake of breaking ties.
