Comments? Yay or Nay?

I think it should be fun to do one, but I don't know...maybe the majority here think otherwise.

Ask yourself this: "Do I allow former bosses?"

Then, decide from there.

And, like Bata-kun said, do mid-boss also counts ? Because then, I believe Kula (00) and Anhel (02) will be OK? And what about the hidden bosses of SvC? Goenitz and co, but also Athena and RA ?
And most of all, is Jedah OK, even though he was a default character ? If he is, then he gets all my votes. Now I think of it, same question for Heihachi.





So really what's the difference between a metrosexual and a homosexual?
Metrosexuals are better dressed. Homosexuals are so last season.
What role will the homosexual play in the future?
Gooseberry.

Former ones? Like from older titles in a serries? I think should allow.
So, a different playable character acting as a middle boss depending on who you are playing as wouldn't count, but a character that is an otherwise a regular middle boss would count, yah?
Yay.

I nominate
Mukai from King of Fighters 2003.

Verily, yay.
I bet we'd do better than the butch boss rush thread the Kman showed, er hopefully. But if it does include former bosses, I think ol' Vega/M.Bison might try to steal the show. Or at least if the hat club shows up. Make sure Justice Gakuen's Hyou is in there! 見るがいい、斬!

Sounds good, post rules and limits when you do.

If you do one, I'll run a non-fighting game boss thread then ^_^

"RULES..." , posted Tue 22 Mar 11:51:post reply

1. Nominations are open to anyone that is/was once the last character to fight in a fighting game, including character for a special/alternate/the real ending.

2. Doesn't matter if he/she has been reduced to a normal playable character, but no sub-bosses.

3. Different incarnations of the same characters will be counted as one even though their styles might differ- e.g. Young Geese/Geese Howard, Shin Akuma/Akuma... )

So that means you can vote for Wolfgang Krauser or Ryo Sakazaki in Fatal Fury Special; Krizalid, Kyo or Iori in KOF99; Shin Akuma, Mr Karate, Athena or RA in SCV Chaos. (If I remembered correctly, you won't fight Geese Howard in Fatal Fury 1 if you are not good enough, right? So that means Billy Kane can be in the running too.)

No other restrictions or limits, unless there are some potential unfairness that you guys can think of.

So far, not much of comments here...Do I take it that it is not really a good idea?

It's not bad. People probably just can't pick since there are too many badass bosses (and a lot of lame ones as well).

How many can we nominate ?

If we can only nominate one, I'll take Jedah.
If more, I'll extend to Rash˘jin Mizuki, then to Amakusashir˘ Tokisada.

You can technically nominate anyone in Street Fighter Alpha 2 (maybe others too, but I can't remember off-hand) since they're all each other's bosses. Did you want to limit that?

Given the rules, my vote(s) go to:

- Gill: Bi-coloured Christ-esque cheaply powerful exhibitionist, with a great array of supers, and a cool voice ("Let me be the blesseer of all souls").

- Jedah: Original, mad, playable, great design. Basically, just plain cool.

- I-No: I can't believe I missed her. Our favorite boss-slut, complete with cheap super, speed, and strength.


EDIT: Changed Mukai for I-No

I-No: Shiina Ringo + Kikuko Inoue is heaven. And hell.

Adelheid Bernstein: Rugal's kid has style, a great boss on a forgettable game.

Heihachi Mishima: He's THE fighting game boss.

No, no, nominations are not open yet...Don't post them yet. You can put forward some characters in mind though.

I will probably do the tourney after the 3D fighting game female tourney is over. Need more comments/suggestions to make this tourney a good one. The Street Fighter Alpha 2 suggestion was great, will keep it in mind. Thanks!

Jedah: Not only does he have a great design, he's also a balanced member of the cast and not just the big cheeseball boss at the end of the game.

Heihachi: He's old enough and rich enough to dress however the hell he wants, he talks to bears, and he travels through time.

But it really wouldn't be a proper discussion of bosses if one or two lame ones didn't show up. To honor that spirit I'll nominate -and I thank Pollyana for reminding me of this clown- Karnov. Whether he's the fire breathing fat man in Bad Dudes or sailing through the air with his "Ballooooon!" power in the Fighter's History games, Karnov always brings a little bit of absurdity to whatever game he shows up in.

So how many nominations do we get? I'll assume for now that we're going with three. In that case:

1. Geese Howard (Fatal Fury series): You can't keep a good man down, or in this case dead. The Raging Storm rules, and he has one of the coolest voices in fighting games. Plus, you gotta be cool to have Billy Kane work for you.

2. Heihachi Mishima (Tekken series): How could you not nominate this guy? Style, power, cool fighting stance, a bear for a pet, and his dad, son and grandson all want him dead!

3. Akuma/Gouki (Street Fighter series): He's f'in Akuma. 'Nuff said.

Man I hate having to just pick three. Honorable mention goes to a bunch of folks:
Bison, Rugal (KoF '94 version with red suit), Bilstein (Star Gladiator, Plasma Sword), Jedah, Pyron, Hyo Imawano, Sagat (last boss of SF1), Kazuya Mishima (his devil version is the last boss of Tekken 2), and even though I guess he wasn't the last last boss of any of the Soul Edge games per se, I'm going to have to throw Cervantes De Leon in there as well.
