Villains... the evil characters that oppose the hero's efforts in differing ways. Whether trying to take over the world or having selfish ideals that jeopardize lives or just getting their kicks committing sinful acts, anime and manga are no different from other forms of media in showing off how twisted and evil a villain can be in accomplishing their goals. This tournament is devoted to the evil characters we loved to hate or relish in how warped and twisted their goals were.
The nomination phase will be mostly similar to how I did the Harems Tourney. I'm hoping to set up a 32 or 64 entrant voting tournament with any villainous anime/ manga characters to determine who you guys think is the best of them all. Here are the rules for the tourney:
- Vice members are allowed to nominate as many applicable villains as they want.
- Once a vote is made, a second vote in support of any nominated villain from any member is required for a nominee to become an entrant. Vice members aren't allowed to make second votes on their nominees.
- Nominees and entrants will be regularly counted and updated by yours truly throughout the span of nominations. Regularly check the opening post of this thread for updated voting totals.
- Nominations will run for two weeks (April 18 will be the deadline for simplicity's sake). After that, the first 32 or 64 villains that gained two votes to become an entrant will be involved in the tournament.
- The nominated villain must have had a significant presence and impact at some point within his or her anime/ manga series.
- Only two villains per anime/ manga title or franchise are allowed in this tournament. I'll allow more than two nominees per title/ franchise for the voting phase. But after two entrants from said title/ franchise officially become entrants, then any more will not be accepted.
- Villains from dating sims, visual novels, novels, eroge and video games are allowed to be nominated, so long as the title(s) in question have had at least one anime or manga adaptation.
- Villains who later become a hero or anti-hero within their respective series/ franchise or at some point within the title for a period of time are allowed to be nominated, so long as their villainous acts had a major presence within the title.
With the rules posted, feel free to nominate any villains you'd like to see become part of this tournament.
