Considering how debated this match was, the way that it wound up going was somewhat of a letdown for everyone, especially Luigi supporters. But for all of the pre-match hype generated from the match, a small bit of research yielded Yoshi's clear advantage going in. The Bowser/Ness and Squall/Luigi comparison had already been dissected to death by the time this match, but Yoshi's advantage was made even more clear after both characters' performances from the first round were compared. Yoshi's prediction percentage was higher, his vote total was higher, and the total votes from his poll were higher than that of Luigi's. In a match disguised by hype, the math from multiple sources pointed to a Yoshi victory.

Sure enough, after some initial jousting between the two Nintendo respresentatives, Yoshi began pulling away in the poll and never looked back. The match was close by comparison standards, but in reality, Luigi barely gave Yoshi a fight at all. It was a surprise to many a Luigi supporter, but to those who analysed the math and/or the Yoshi supporters, this match's result was expected from the start. It was a boring match, but this was the nature of the bracket moreso than the match itself.

Even more boring was the fact that the 2003 Xsts called this match to near perfection despite it being an SFF affair. A first round match having this problem is acceptable enough, but not a match in the second round. And even more ridiculous was the fact that this was the only decent match to take place in the entire first two rounds among the Hyrule division. A debated match going exactly the way it was supposed to go = Ulti falling asleep while writing this.

On a side note, is anyone else in the mood to buy a bowling ball and paint it Yoshi Green? =)
