Carmen Sandiego was one of the rare mass-rallied characters that made the field, though it may have actually been better for her to stay on the sidelines. Zelda's throttling of Carmen in this here match was arguably the most dominant performance of the entire contest. Zelda actually started this match at a "mere" ~82%, but exploded during the day vote for the 86% win shown above. I'm also 99% sure that Zelda was the only character to break 100,000 votes individually all through this contest, but correct me if I'm wrong.
It's also pretty funny how Zelda's performance here made her look like an actual threat to Samus in every regard, which started the whole upset bandwagon. Matches like this give credence to the theory that a supporting character can go berserk if their main isn't in the contest bracket. Or something. That doesn't explain Mario's steroids last year.
Well anyway, not much to say. Zelda made a killing here, and her run of dominance was one of gold through the entire contest until very late.
