"The King of Fighters 2018 Special"

"2018. Welcome to the King of Fighters Special Tournament. Like in years past, teams will be of 3 people. I welcome new and old challengers. Good luck. - S"

"The King of Fighters" with the old traditions and the Madman's style: it doesn't get better than that. The Japanese Heroines Team of Mai, Yuri and "Rayearth's" Fuu is back to defend the title with the first two finally getting the monkey off their backs. Can they do it or will there be a new victorious trio?

For those that don't know, what stays the same is the fact that it's still 3-on-3 fighting. What is different is that the team you request for must have 2 game characters and 1 anime/manga/light novel/commercial character or vice versa. So, you can't have the usual team of Heidern, Ralf and Clark, but you can have a team of Ralf, Clark and "Read or Die's" Drake as the military team. You can't pick God tier characters obviously. So, no Goku or Mahoro for example.

Seeing that I brought up the original "Ikari" team, like in old "KoF" games, bonds are very important. If you pick a team that makes logical sense, your team does gain an extra vote point each round. (I have the final say, and I will be strict, but fair on the result.) If you pick a team that flat out mix like oil and water, you better pray that the bout's not tight because the team is down a vote every round. So, be careful when choosing a team.

Vote for the team that you want to move on. Doesn't matter if you vote for the stronger team or the cuter team. Vote. If you have trouble, I'll leave a third choice. (Generally, if I don't know either team well, I go for the stronger one. Having your mind and heart fight over your vote is a difficult scenario to go through. I know, and that's why I hate Ralf, Clark and Drake-Athena, Minako and Usagi type bouts. You and your mind know that Ralf, Clark and Drake are way stronger than Athena, Minako and Usagi in regards of raw power, but you and your heart also know that not only are those girls the adorable underdogs. Those girls are way cuter than those guys anyway.)

In the case of a tie breaker, Justice Kyo will be the judge as he looks at convincing statements on why one's team should win the round. No trash talking, as this is a family fun event. (I know that Kero-chan used profanity, but at least he didn't blatantly say it in front of the kid, right? So, no trash talking.)

Tips?

1. Don't mix good guys with bad guys. That's the best way to be in a vote hole. Pick two characters from the same series that get along with each other. That's the best way to have an extra vote each round.

2. An obvious good character to have is Benimaru because he has bonds with justice girls. So, nab him early, and make sure the girl or girl pair does mix well with him.

3. Though the idea's cool, try not to have all 3 characters with the same seiyuu. Having a Kasumi-Leona-Vice team isn't ideal in "1996", and you certainly can't do that here now. (Yeah, all 3 are voiced by Yumi Masae-san who also announced in that game if you don't remember.) There are not many teams I can think of in which you can pick 3 characters with the same seiyuu to follow the rules and have a vote point bonus. (Trust me. It's hard.)

There are more tips, but I will not type more. If there are under 8 teams, I'll add more teams (as I already have plenty of ideas). Oh, since Neo Ryu would've wanted in, I'll place his team in also, and if the Professor wants in, he'll get a slot, along with an edge for his Tifa and Deedlit pair. (A logical teammate of his team for example would be Yuffie.) If more than 8 people are gung ho, I don't mind sitting out or adding more slots.

To add on to the team scenario, I need to type this. Choose your team and entry slot early, and you get the characters you want locked, but you're possibly vulnerable to a mismatch. Choose your team and entry slot late, and you can pick the team you want to face against, but your choices of teammates are cut down a bit. 8/16 slots are available, and the match ups are determined by the slots. So, if you don't want your team to face Neo Ryu's in the first round, don't get or pick slot 6 or 14 if we're having 16 teams, but if you do, select your team and the 6th/14th slot fast.

The tournament starts early next month (a week's not long enough to come up with a serious team), and each round will last a week. Please don't hesitate to ask questions. Good luck. (Oh, if you're wondering, yes, an Iori-Dejiko-Puchiko team is absolutely legal, though I don't know how far that'll go, and yes, the vote bonus stays in tact because not only are the mascots linked. Dejiko is a fan of Iori.)

Vote for the team that you want to move on. Doesn't matter

As much as I'd like to see this happen, all three characters are sadly game characters. I remember typing to one person that although most people know Yuu and the rest of the "Comipa" characters because of the anime, they're still game characters. So, one member must go. (A good replacement is "Full Metal Alchemist's" Riza if you're stuck.)

Oh. I forgot. Have you decided on what slot you want?

Just in case you guys really are stumped on making a team that can beat Mai, Yuri and Fuu (good luck making one), I already have teams in mind to fill out the field, and they all have a "KoF" regular. So, if you want a shot, make your team, and pick from slots 4-8 (16 when lots of people want in) before the 6th of next month. (You still have time.)
