    Currently I have it narrowed down to 114 Nominations. So that means we need at least 14 more. Once I get 128 or a certain number that works I will post the list of nominations so everyone can see and voice their opinions on it.

    Then the only one I would nominate on my list is Merlin from Excalibur.

    So repeated characters from different mediums are allowed? Interesting. I kind of want to see Batman vs Batman... [face_thinking]

    I think you should drop all X-Men characters (their powers are not portrayed as mystical but rather as science/evolution), all Superman characters (again, powers/show/movie themes are more sci-fi in nature than fantasy), all Doctor Who characters (sci-fi), Iron Man (sci-fi), Spider-Man (sci-fi, at least as far as films go) and all Transformers characters except for Primus and Unicron (as they are astral gods by some sources). Even Batman in the films shouldn't qualify, though animated incarnations might qualify since they ahve some magical-based characters appear. I'd also consider X-Files to be primarily Sci-fi, so characters from that probably shouldn't count.

    All IMO, of course.

    And do we really want Hurley to be the sole representative of Lost? :p Bring on Sayid, Desmond, Sawyer or John Locke!

    I tend to agree with The2ndQuest. Transformers characters and X-Men characters shouldn't be in the tourney, mostly because they could be considered more sci-fi because of their origins. Technological machines, genetic mutations, yeah, those aren't very mystical.

    I like the nomination list but yeah stay away from the characters with super technology or ones that could be considered superheroes

    If Lost characters are being counted as Fantasy, definitely. Add Kate and Jack to that list too. I just didn't realise they were originally.

    Quest speaks well. What he said sounds good for this.

    Well, I think as it stands now, Lost seems to have fantasy elements, but the thing is, since we really don't know what exactly is happening on that island, it could very well be science fiction by the time all is said and done and (hopefully) explained.

    Were any Lost characters in the sci-fi tournament?

    It would be interesting to see Hurley's curse-o-death explained scientifically, but I'm sure they could give in a shot!

    Alrighty. Here is what I've done so far. I've pulled all the comic book characters from the list. I thought about leaving Batman from The Animated Series in there but I think just to be fair if I pull one incarnation of the character I should pull all of them. I plan on leaving Thor in there because he is a god and really is more Fantasy than Sci Fi if you think about it. For The X Files can't Mulder stay in because they deal with Supernatural elements which would be fantasy? Also what are your thoughts on the characters from Heroes? Should we pull them because they have powers like the X-Men or what? We don't know truely how they have their powers yet so I want to get an opinion on them before I decide to pull them or not. As of right now there are 21 Nomination openings. This could open up more depending on if we keep or pull the Heroes character nominations. Please submit more nominations in the normal way. Thanks :)

    Here are two more nominations from me seeing as I had two of my four taken out of the tournament (Superman & Batman).

    I would propose that any character who was involved in the Sci-Fi tournament be excluded from the Fantasy tournament, no questions asked.

    I would agree with Radical_Edward on this. While there is plenty of potential for spillover between the genres, one shot at a tournament seems enough. Note that I'm thinking this only for characters that actually did compete in the Sci-Fi tournament; those that could have but didn't and still meet fantasy criteria are fair game still.

    Also, I definitely think Lost should be able to be included in this tournament. While it may have rational or semi-rational explanations, the show has thus far offered us explanations for less than it has denied them to us. The unexplained mind-reading Smoke Monster would seem a good example for the moment. Also, this past Wednesday night's episode seemed to up the fantastical quotient, whatever's actually going on there. Maybe when the series is over it won't be allowed in this tournament, but I say take it for now

    On that note...

    Desmond Hume, Lost

    (Since it's vaguely unclear whether some of the suggestions made above were official nominations, I'm making sure they get noted in that capacity. Plus, c'mon, can't leave Ben out! He's one of the most interesting characters in the show, despite how much I hate him right now.)
