this was the 10th character battle of gamefaqs. the match format returned into 1v1.

a total of 136 characters competed in the tournament. 128 players were split into 8 divisions, and each division winner will join eight legendary characters (link/cloud/samus/mario/sonic/megaman/snake/crono) to fight in a double-elimination bracket that will decide, once again, the most popular character on gamefaqs.

Link defeated Cloud Strife in their third Grand Finals rematch, earning him a record-fifth championship. Meanwhile, Zelda took home third place after defeating three Noble Niners in the upper bracket, before losing to the eventual top two finalists in consecutive matches.
