Maybe a character poll would be a way for Sonic to get revenge on Mario? :P

Half Life by a country mile.

I still maintain it is the only franchise that can hold a candle to Mario's influence.

Keep the nominations coming.

Also, would everyone want me to put characters of the same franchise into the same division or spread them out? For example putting Mario, Luigi, and Bowser all in the Mario division.

Spreading them out would make the most sense.

How come? That leaves open the possibility that the final 4 could all be from the same franchise. Unless people want that as an option of course.

Nah, it's better than just bunching them up together again. You want to gauge the real merit of each character. If you just have two from the same franchise being pitted against one another early, that vote splitting would thin out the competition artificially. The best characters often come from the same franchises, and it's not a coincidence.

When setting up a tournament you want to distribute the heavyweights evenly within each division. Last time, most of the good franchises were in the first two divisions. That said, Mario characters shouldn't be getting too far this time. They're awesome, but the games aren't exactly carried by the characters themselves. Mario himself will probably win it all again though, lol.

Fair enough. And as for distributing heavyweights evenly, I base it mainly off the nominations, but since there aren't many in this thread, it could be a challenge lol.
