This was our first "boring" match of the contest, but that didn't stop it from being good anyway.

See, most people expected Midna to be the one way out in first place. After all, she was the new Zelda character from Ocarina of Time Rehash: Delayed to Sell Wiis Edition. Most people really like her in said game, and as we all know, Zelda Always Wins.

Well, it didn't really turn out that way. Scorpion dominated this poll about as well as a non-elite can dominate, and even though she advanced into round 2 Midna completely crapped the bed here. The only reason she advanced at all was being a hyped Zelda character, and the bad competition helped. Agent 47 is irrelevant, and Kratos is another character in the long line of Tales characters unable to win a match. Even if you reran the one match a Tales character was able to win, Lloyd > Wesker all the way back in 2005, is there any doubt the result gets reversed now?

Now that I'm looking back on stuff for the first time in awhile, Midna lucked out big time here and Scorpion did REALLY well. With Mortal Kombat 9 getting such rave reviews all over the place, he and Sub-Zero should boost and we should also finally get more than two characters from that series into the field.

Stats and Analysis Edit

this was the first real upset of the contest, and it wasn't even close. Midna was touted as the first Zelda character with actual personality and the star of Twilight Princess, the 2006 Game of the Year that crushed the competition. her competition was a washed up fighting game character, a fairly cult RPG character and Agent 47. easy, yeah?

well, Scorpion took the lead early, widened the gap quickly and never looked back. Midna may be well-known, but it seems the voters look at her as being more like Navi than Link. Midna was one of the biggest bombs of 2007, and this was looked at as being overestimation of Midna as opposed to underestimating Scorpion.

in reality, it was both.
