RANKERS:
Reck
xof
BBM

RULES:
Each person can go once per round.
A new round starts once all three people have gone in a single round OR nobody has gone for 48 hours.
Each player has two idols:
- One must be played before Top 50
- One must be played after Top 50
When a cut is idoled, the person who cut that entry cannot cut that entry again until Top 25, when all immunities and idols go away.

Spoiler: old topic
So we got like a year into this rankdown and didn't make much progress and I said "you know what, fuck it, let's finish this shit"

Since CC already has data on everything from 2016 and beyond, we're finishing the rankdown! For context, see this thread.

VOTE VOTE VOTE!

Once voting is completed, I'll get with CC to compare these scores with the numbers he has from 2016 & 2017!

In the above link, you'll be taken to a google form, with the characters of every game from the past years listed on a separate page. You will rank these characters on a scale of 1 to 10 in terms of character arc, memorability, and overall entertainment factor. You are encouraged to leave any characters blank if they are from a game you aren't familiar with, or you played in the game but never interacted with them.

A 1 on the scale means an actively terrible character or one that lacks any presence at all, while a 10 represents a classic/unforgettable character. If you give out 1s and 10s to over half the available characters, your submission will be thrown out since it's pretty unreasonable that there's no middle ground of characters.

My plan is to get this to consensus agree on top ~100 or so and then do a rankdown from there

QUICK NOTE: I used CC's 2016 poll data to compile this list. What I found was that since there were about half of the people total, scores were skewed heavily in favor of the 2016 poll participants. To correct this, the games featured on CC's 2016 poll had their bottom half of characters relegated in favor of getting more of the older games into the mix. In total, that culled 25 entries from the list. After looking at the next 25 entries on the list, I filled in any pre-2016 characters from that selection. There were about 9 spots still leftover, which I went back and filled in with the top 9 2016 participants who got cut.

It's not an exact science, but it was the best way to get a selection from all of MS history.

But... here are your TOP 100 CHARACTERS!

Each ranker has 2 idols. One must be used before Final 50, one after, but all immunities/idols expire at Final 20.

#100. Magikoopa (Haschel Cedricson) - Magic Kingdom
Image

No disrespect to the legacy that came before. Mushroom Kingdom was an important game. But like most things from the era of the original Playstation... we've gotten better at telling stories and playing games since then. Magikoopa had his hands in a lot of different things that happened. Was forward about asking for alliances, and in the first ever MS game, that's a big deal. But he eventually overplayed and got outplayed by the eventual winner of the game. It was bold and fun and deserving of a Top 100 spot, definitely due to how early it happened. But now he's swingin' with the big boys and it's gonna take more than slightly aggressive/good play to cut it.

#98. Harbinger (Jal) - Mass Effect
avatar unavailable

Harbinger played a really solid game, let's take nothing away from that. But... Harbinger also was just a winner. Nothing Harbinger did made people talk about the win long after. The other two features here from Mass Effect definitely had more of a lasting impression. A win is a win, but this is the rankdown, dammit. We want memorable characters, and unfortunately, Harbinger doesn't make the cut.

Yeah, failed to mention that one. It's a cool piece of history but I don't think it saves the character because that was one interesting thing.

But the 24 hour marathon is great.

95. Ted Cruz (Jal) - #2016

Image
Image

A winner was Ted. Ted had the odds stacked against him the whole game, and yet, the people in control kept turning on each other. He was on the outs the entire way through. He posted a thread when he was on the Sunshine tribe, going "Fuck, I'm screwed". Then he got swapped again onto the Republican tribe and said, "Fuck, I am screwed". And then merge hit and he went "Fuck, I am screwed". And yet he kept surviving, surviving, surviving.

The biggest theme of this FTC was "proactive versus reactive play". Ted, due to being on the outs the whole game, had to constantly play passively and just react to things happening around him. The FTC wound up being very close! And Ted played a fantastic game given the situation he was put in. But...it didn't make for a particularly thrilling game. Was it due to the theme that most of the cast blended into the furniture? Who knows. What I do know is that it's hard to point to even one or two specific moments or things that defined Ted as a character.

Great winner, but we're not here to rank winners. We're here to rank characters, and Ted was slightly lacking in that department.

Yeah, I shouldn't have said proactive/reactive. Ted was on the defensive half the game and having to scrap his way out from underneath the pile.

93. Mint Chocolate Chip (hiplop) - Pretty Super Vanilla

Image
"Literally flipping like a madman here!"

Let's not sell it short: Mint Chocolate Chip had a crucial role in the ultimate story that was PSV. He played the middle ground between competing alliances and tried to make a bunch of moves. Unfortunately, few of them worked out. And despite making it so close to the end, there's some big explosions that happen between the Final 4 in PSV that completely overshadow everything else that happened in the game. MCC did the Chansey thing of pretending to be a complete newbie, but he wasn't, and that little lie didn't end up mattering as much in the end. He also had a big rivalry with Huck that he was trying to push, but ultimately it felt a little forced. With so many bigger moments in the game and bigger storylines coming to fruition, Mint unfortunately gets lost in the shuffle and thus must go.
