For me, Zorak was the only actually good winner, with 100% genuinity to said win.

I think all four of them are solid picks, but Zorak absolutely is the best one with Fang closely behind.

With Jack and Midna at some certain point it was ratherobvious who was going to win, with a lesser extent to Fang (Fang wasn’t a bad winner but the tournament sure was).

Zorak was an underdog through and through and nobldy expected he would win another round up until he won Mr. /co/

I honestly thought jack garland was a solid winner as well(liked the chaosposting meme) but overall Zorak was the overall best winner this year and a true underdog story, Fang caused seething amongst riggers, and midina was just predictable all around though this isn’t a bad thing it is the most boring win

I respect Jack and his strength. His supporters? A different matter. AM got dragged through the mud so hard and the finals were so pathetic it made me change my perspective on his entire campaign. I wonder if this is how people who didn't like Midna's fanbase felt when she won.

Not crazy about any of the winners as characters; all kind of 6-7/10 for me. Jack had the best campaign but Zorak was a good underdog run, and indisputably the most successful RP ever.

Fang is my favorite, but now that it's been a few months I can definitely understand why people felt her run was boring. It all happened at a just too-perfect time for her. Still, I'm glad she won. Zorak was a pleasant surprise and easily the biggest twist of this year. Midna was good, but I really wanted Hornet to win so I'm still a bit sour about her. Garland's win was obvious after he crushed AM but honestly I liked the Chaos posting and respecting his strength.

Overall I would say this was a strong year, if a little predictable.

Definitely a strong year despite what went down on ms /co/ but I was honestly expecting something to occur either way regardless. I was a little iffy on mr /co/ and it’s randomized brackets at first but overall it ended up being a very fun choice especially since we got more lesser known characters to reach further into the tournament than being simply fodder. My biggest surprise was my main Kermit beating shaggy but unfortunately he lost prematurely to courage, but this alone shows his potential as a strong contender next year.

Kermit defeating Shaggy was great. Underrated moment.

He's a fine winner, but that statement is unfortunately false. A lot of people in the last few rounds were talking about voting for him because he's an underdog.

I don’t entirely get what OP means by that in this context myself. Technically no winner can be genuine since it pretty much always involves some manipulation, especially near the end. I would personally say Midna was the most genuine, since it was the purest straight win (via just already being topmost established and popular) without some tournament fuckery.

Yeah, but it means it's not 100% genuine like OP said.

Zorak was the best winner. Jack Garland had the best campaign.

Fang and Midna were both solid winners, but also very expectable ones. Think they’re also the first two characters to win after being in Elite Eight previously, wild as that sounds.

Fang and Midna were both seed 1 with relatively easy matchups. It was rather obvious at who was going to win.

Jack also had high seed but a great campaign but Zorak till now has been the second lowest seed count to ever win a tourney.

Zorak was definitely the best winner and best underdog story. he didn't get lots of OC until later on but he was campaigned from the very beginning. While he is cool, I believe John Silver could have made it further too had it not been for Squidward.

Midna and Garland were a huge improvement over last year. Batter was cool but I have to say Madotsuki would have been a better fit for him as queen than Recette. Midna and Garland make more sense especially with how much both Zelda and Final Fantasy keep referencing each other in past games like pic related.

Fang was cool but sadly the drama that was carried all the way after Round 3 ruined the experience and I can only hope it doesn't happen again next year with the new rules. Although being honest, who's to say Nightshift isn't going to inevitably exclude a character in Ms. /co/ that will create drama anyway?

Another thing I forgot to add is that while I liked Midna and Garland they became way too predictable as the tournament went on.

Midna is a definitive improvement over Recette, at least in my opinion. Garland's run just left a bad taste in my mouth in a similar way Ms. /co/ was rife with drama and rigging. And as another anon above said, he couldn’t overhype Batter.

It's definitely has reached a point with Batter and Garland that now anyone who "acquires" a part of their opponent is guaranteed to win no matter what.

Nightshift unlike in /v/, has actual experience with /co/ content and their origins so I doubt it.

>tfw all of this probably started with Grievous' campaign in 2019 because it was literally part of his character to acquire the weapons of his fallen enemies as trophies

Honestly, Silver is my number 1 candidate to win Mr. /co/lympus 2023. I really want for Silver to take the crown because while people only superficially take it for granted, the actual movie is one of the most soulful movies that has ever been made that was absolutely fucking shitted by disney just so they can kill the 2D animation studio.

While I understand why people prefer Treasure Island, I will never admit that it is in any way better than Treasure Planet.

Battler still jobbed despite getting Spamton's glasses so it's not universal, although it was a nice touch that during his match with Robin, a lot of his OC had him with his cape that he gets later on in Umineko.

Silver would make for a great winner but it's hard to imagine the entire board deciding to vote for him, he is somewhat of an oddball contestant in that sense. I hope he can go far next year.
