    Please post your suggestions in this thread. Out of respect for your fellow posters, do not nominate more than 4 characters in one post, and do not post back to back. (if you do so, your nominations will be edited and ignored)

    This tournament will consist of 64 characters*. I will leave nominations open for three days. Therefore, the nominations will be open from August 12th to August 15th. Once 64 characters has been reached, anything after will be cut off. I have no doubt that you guys will be able to nominate 64 characters in the time period alloted; however, if you guys haven't nominated 64 characters, I'll leave the nominations open until we reach 64 characters.

    You may nominate any character that has been in a video game but it must have been a video game character first. Therefore, this excludes any movie game characters (including Star Wars!) and any comic/cartoon/book/etc characters who appeared in anything before they appeared in a video game. Characters that are in video games that are not out yet as well as any make-your-own characters are also excluded.

    Please include the video game that the character appears in.


    If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me or post in this thread.

    Without further ado...

    ...begin nominating!




    *Is 64 characters too small? Should we have 128 characters instead?>

    Um. I don't think Charizard was a video game character first. Pokemon the TV show and Pokemon the card game came before the video game, IIRC.

    It wasn't intentional. I spent considerable time (at least a minute) thinking about my final nomination and didn't refresh to see if anyone else posted.

    Amazing.

    What? This is lies.

    My nominations:

    1. Princess Zelda (from the Legend of Zelda series) - I'm not sure if this would include Sheik and Tetra too, but I think it might be a good idea to condense them into one. They're all essentially the same character, after all.
    2. Ganon / Ganondorf (from the Legend of Zelda series)
    3. Joanna Dark (from Perfect Dark)
    4. Earthworm Jim (from the Earthworm Jim series)

    EDIT: Replaced one nomination because someone had said it.
