I figured I would set this thread up now since I'm still in the middle of trying to figure out matches and have fighters already situated into their brackets. In any case, I'll explain how this tournament will work out. 
  • With 48 characters involved, 16 fighters will be divided into three different brackets each and I will have two matches with two characters against one another every three days where Vice members vote on which character they believe will win in said match. Whichever character has the most votes after three days will advance in the next round. The final round of the tournament will have the winners of each bracket taking on one another in a three-way match.
  • Each match will take place on a different battle area coming from any of the franchises involved in this tournament thus battle environment should be accounted for whichever location the characters fight in.
  • Voters must provide reasons as to why they will vote for said character or else I won't count their vote.
  • No flaming or spamming of any sort will be tolerated in this thread. Repeat offenses from anyone posting in this thread will result in them being banned from future participation in this tournament.
  • Characters in these matches will always be in-character with battles fought either to death or knockout. Any form of battlefield removal will not be allowed from any characters that have such an ability. In addition, any restrictions for character abilities and attributes will be listed in the bracket listing posted below. Otherwise, assume that the characters are fighting at their strongest level from their respective franchise for this match.
  • Any questions on tournament rules or character abilities are allowed to be posted in this thread.

Now that we have all this out of the way, let me show off who will be in each bracket of this tournament and any restrictions the character will have.

And here I was thinking of calling this idea dead.
 
@othus12: @FormerCrimsonKing: Can you give reasons for your votes?

Shichika is too fast for Kenshin and should be able to break his sword.

My next vote is to Gaara.

@Dream: I put in my vote for Machine Banchou, and Shichika.

I think Machine Banchou would win because he has the strength advantage. He could overpower several other Banchou at once; Gouriki Banchou, Nenbutsu Banchou, Hikyou Banchou, and Iai Banchou. And, none of them are pushovers either. Gouriki, for instance, is ridiculously strong and can toss giant prehistoric sharks like they are nothing.

Talk about extreme fishing. Anyway, if he could overpower her along with the other three I think Machine Banchou has this in the bag.

As for Shichika, his feats of strength and speed impressed me more than Kenshin's did. He also split a small castle in half in the last episode.

shichika managed to beat opponents that had speed no one in the kenshin verse could ever hope for, also we have seen him dodging bullets with ease and breaking swords bare handed. shichika would even be able to block amakakeru ryu no hirameki.

I guess I'll have to see how much attention this tourney gets. If I don't get many visitors after a few more matches, I guess I'll call this another dead idea.

Any way, Shichika manages to beat Kenshin based on votes and the second match comes down to a tie so I'll have to decide for myself who I would think wins the match and based on Banchou's feats, I'll have to give him a win considering it looks like he would have the power to break through Gaara's defenses and any sand attacks the ninja attempts to entrap him in, on top of having the ability to fly to make things more difficult for Gaara to effectively land his sand attacks. So Shichika and Machine Banchou will face one another in the next round.

Here are the next matches:

Match #1: Teresa vs Bunshichi Tawara

Battle Area: Jolly Roger (One Piece)

Match #2: Gen Shishio vs Coco

Battle Area: Meteor City (Hunter x Hunter)

To make this accessible to anyone who hasn't voted in the prior match, I'll let voting run until 48 hours after the last vote. Otherwise, have fun!

@Dream: In the first match I am leaning towards Teresa, due to greater combat speed.

1.-teresa wins because of her speed

2.- coco wins, his poison is so great that it rivaled that of the lethal current "poison tide" which no living being has managed yet to cross it, that pretty much sums it.

Pretty much this.
