This was the resolution of a dumb eightpack that featured six Nintendo characters. Fox beat down three of them (Banjo, Wario, Captain Falcon) in round 1 easily, and Meta Knight was coming off of beating Peach. Fox winning a fourpack outright was much more impressive than Meta Knight's distant second place over Peach, so this match was over before it ever started. Fox was getting a distant second place, Seph was getting first and that was that. It was mildly interesting Wario failed to beat Meta Knight I guess, but predictable match nevertheless.
Basically, there were only two interesting things of note here. Sephiroth's percentage from round 1 to 2 actually went up against better competition, and the only explanation there is he was up against all-Nintendo instead of 2 Nintendo and CATS. Also, the match pic was really cool. Kingdom Hearts, Brawl, Brawl, Brawl. Brawl is a bad game, but the art from it is cool.
Stats and Analysis Edit
- Sephiroth overperformed by +7.23%, the #11 most impressive performance of 2007
unlike every other match in the contest, this match had no chance of being interesting. everyone knew Sephiroth was going to crush everyone, so the debate came down to a well-liked Nintendo guy in Fox, a Nintendo character better known for his appearance in a Brawl trailer in Meta-Knight, and a guy Fox had already doubled in Wario. basically, it was impossible to debate this because Meta-Knight had no chance of beating a more popular Smash character, and Wario was exposed as a joke after round 1. about the only interesting thing that came out of this match is that Sephiroth actually got a higher percentage despite the increase in competition. you can thank CATS for that one.
