    Ryu certainly isn't as meme-y as oh say....Pwngoat, and I generally liked his gags. I was just shocked? mystified? that a drawing of minor importance actually got this far. Props to him but he always felt like a prelims character.

    It's still amazing/unbelievable that he crushed Doflamingo, of all characters.
    People getting sick of dressrosa got them sick of doflamingo, imagine if crocodile was around for 90 chapters, any tournament afterwards would have crocoboy fatigue

    Well still, he was a warlord that's been around since volume 25 with a fair amount of history and influence attached.

    It's just as funny/unbelievable as Pwngoat beating the eventual final villain Blackbeard.

    Campaigns are the main reason I enjoy the Character Tournament, and obscure characters making it through
    *reminiscences about the Weatheria Wizards*

    Why can't side/joke characters get their time to shine? It will be boring if all matches are like Sanji vs Zoro or something. And it builds a sense of community in the forum... I think.

    Carrot will demolish Koala
    Neko should win, but you never know with AP
    Other two are a toss-up as to who wins. I know who I'm rooting for, but let's see how it plays it

    In fact, I'd consider his chapter hands down one of the more sluggish moments in all of Zou.
    A lot of Barto's club helped in this regard. The going Luffy senpai, the wanted poster gallery on the ship, the huge chopper face on the rear, Bartolomeo and his antics. Classic One Piece comedy all before it even reached the elephant. It's cool though apparently the pig nosed dragon saved that one dude from dropping the series entirely, good for him lol.

    Nah even with the jokes aside you won't get boring match ups, but Zoro v Sanji does sound amazing. Take away Ryuu and you still have the likes of Nekomamushi, Carrot, Koala, Rosinante etc they're all side characters, they're all real characters and they're all viable. Including Ryuu is like including characters move sets, because that's essentially what he is a drawing made by Kanjuro. Yet Kanjuro's brilliant artistic mind gets his ass thrown out the tournament very early on, without him you don't have the gags so it's weird in a sense.
    Although I liked weatheria wizards as a sole entry in the tournament I don't think it's fair to clump the Straw Hat fleet together, they're like 7 or so unique characters and the unpopular ones drag the really cool ones down and not to mention you still have the popular ones as separate entries, so they have twice the chance of getting further in a competition because they're in it twice. Just some thoughts on the tournament, I am well aware that tournaments of the past have gone clean as a whistle and have been very fun but somethings for me make it less enjoyable and that's only a personal thing, everyone else seems to be having a blast :)

    (Oh and last I checked it's called called OP Character Tournament, not a Characters Tournament)

    Oh god, Sanji vs Jimbei? This tournament is determined to come up with every way possible to make me vote against Jimbei. I would have voted for him against any of the other six choices.

    For the other matches, fairly easy picks of Nami, Carrot, and Nekomamushi for me.

    Bleck!!!! Super popular characters facing off sounds interesting to you? Next thing, you are gonna tell me Luffy vs Law is a great matchup.

    This character tournament is a tournament of memes and gags. A gag character winning this whole thing embodies what this tournament stands for. Yeah, it probably won't happen because 'some' people take this tournament more seriously than they should, but meh.

    I would not place sanji and luffy next to zoro and law. Like luffy and sanji are fun( luffy even won this, sanji deserves too), zoro and law got out of Bleach.

    Considering match ups from previous tournaments can be repeated in later tournaments, I fail to see how my grammar was wrong.

    Super popular characters facing off isn't interesting to you? I wonder how they make it past the first few rounds every tournament and make it to the latter stages, most probably because everyone shares your sentiment, oh wait, they don't. This tournament is a tournament of memes and gags? No , this tournament's campaigns are made of memes and gags doesn't mean the characters themselves have to be gag characters. I get it, you like sounding like a special snowflake, I'm happy for you. Luffy vs Law is an amazing match up, what's not to like? Maybe Oda should remove all the super popular characters so One Piece can truly realize what it's always meant to be a series of gags and memes, week in week out , no wait that sounds extremely stupid a lot like some of your posts. Nothing about my post insinuates that I'm against fun and light hearted ness if you look at the post as a whole. If I was against fun why would I mention characters like Carrot and Nekomamushi?

    Different people have different ways of seeing these tournaments, that's only natural. No one "takes this tournament more seriously than they should", because there's no rule that says how seriously it "should" be taken. If someone wants to take it really seriously than that's ok, and if someone else wants to take it all as a big joke than that's ok too. The point is that there are lots of people participating in the tournament, so it's probably best to keep things somewhere in the middle between serious and all jokes (and I think the staff are doing a great job there!). Things like what happened with Satori in the past are hilarious, as long as they don't actually get in the way of how the tournament unfolds. Whether or not Ryuunosuke wins this thing is up to us as participants (personally, I wouldn't really like it, but if the majority wants it, than so be it).

    Sanji v Jinbei

    This is stupid. I don't like either character that much, but a final between two would've been dandy (seeing how this arc has both front and center).

    Gags and Meme >>>>>>> Awesome Character
    You have a tendency to call a lot of things stupid, this one thread alone features your stupid twice. Now I know why I struck a nerve meme character greater than awesome character, haha keep preaching to the choir.

    """"Grammar"""" Clearly I forgot to plaster the ninja face in my previous post.

    Your post implies the potential of the match being interesting, it had the instance of being just that in the past, objectively nothing stops it from being entertaining again.

    Subjectively-

    Community is where the entrainment potential lies at. Not the characters.

    I'm totally for meme characters winning tournaments and such, but I guess I'm cruel enough that Law and Zoro's lack of care about Ryunosuke was the funniest part of that scene for me. Plus all the campaigns for Ryunosuke have just been saying the same thing over and over again, so I usually vote against him just to try to get rid of those :P
