The "Jenny", named after the character from Teenage Robot, is a trophy awarded to champions of the Ms. /co/ tournament

Mr. and Ms. /co/ are a pair of yearly single-elimination character tournaments meant to decide 4chan's most popular male and female character of the /co/ board: Western comics and cartoons. Each contest lasts around one week, with the female contest held in the second week of September and the males held somewhere in October. Voting is typically conducted using Google Forms. The term used to refer to female champions is the Waifuhalla, while male champions are said to have ascended into the /co/lympian Pantheon.

The tournaments are presented like a beauty pageant, featuring judges such as 4chan mascot Yotsuba, inaugural winners Johnny and Jenny, and board personifications J/aco/lyn, /co/lette, /co/nrad, and Hope /co/rgi.

The events have spawned similar character tournaments in other boards, such as Mr. and Ms. /mlp/ (a containment board dedicated to My Little Pony) and King and Queen of /v/ (for Video Game characters).

Has its own dedicated wiki.


Overview[]

The "Johnny", named after Johnny Bravo, is awarded to champions of Mr. /co/lympus tournaments.

The Mr. and Ms. /co/ntests are generally meant to be a celebration of comics and cartoons; they also encourage anons to produce fan-art of their favorite candidates, and the discovery of other lesser-known or never-seen-before series. They have attracted significant traffic on the board whenever it happens, and is considered a board-wide tradition by many anonymous users. But like many notable character tournaments in this wiki, the /co/ntests are rife with salt, sabotage, brigades, spite votes, recency bias, accusations of rigging, "autistic shitfits", and many more unsavoury practices- especially in the Miss tournaments. For these reasons, the /co/nservatory wiki labels them as "a blood sport rather than a beauty pageant". Over time, the tournaments have developed its own "metagame" which favours several popular series, classic waifus, "flavours of the month", and a few "joke" entrants. The users also gradually built their own contest lore from text posts, drawings, and audio recordings.

The /co/ board has also organized a spin-off event called the Tag-Team Tournament in the website plus4chan, which is contested by pairs of any comic or cartoon character you want to enter as long as they share a common theme. More details below.

General Format[]

Each round lasts 24 hours from the time the link to that round was posted. Countdowns are provided in the itsalmo.st website.

  • Nomination Thread: Post one character -- name, series, and image. Nominations must get a certain amount of mentions or (Yous) to enter the qualifying poll.
  • Qualifying Poll: All characters are subject to an approval voting poll -- vote whoever and whichever you like to enter. 128 characters with the highest votes will advance to the bracket. Ties are resolved by alphabetical order of series name, then character name.
  • Bracket Stage: 128-player single elimination bracket -- lose one match and you're out. Characters are seeded based on their rankings in the qualifying poll.
  • Elite Eight: Once the tournament reaches its fifth round (Quarter-finals) and beyond, all remaining characters will attain Elite Eight status, making them temporarily ineligible for next edition.
    • Quarter-final losers will be ranked from 5th-8th on a four-way poll.
    • Semi-final losers will play a consolation match to decide third place.
    • Lastly, the winner of the final match wins the tournament, and will be banned from participating in future Ms. or Mr. /co/ tournaments.

Judges[]

Since Ms. /co/ 2019, the tournament has included a set of characters presiding as judges:

  • Yotsuba Koiwai - titular protagonist of manga Yotsuba&!, and mascot of 4chan.
  • /co/nrad - Male Board-Tan (personification) of the /co/ board.
  • /co/lette - Female Board-Tan of the /co/ board.
  • J/aco/lyn - Board-Tan of the /aco/ - Adult Cartoons board, dedicated to porn of western comics and cartoons (and western-inspired art styles).
  • Hope /co/rgi - A superpowered pet Corgi dog affiliated with the Blue Lantern Corps.
  • Jenny Wakeman - Also known as Jenny XJ9, she is the winner of the first Ms. /co/ in 2018 and presides the female tournaments.
  • Johnny Bravo - The winner of the first Mr. /co/lympus in 2018 and presides the male tournaments. Often hits on other female judges (except Yotsuba for obvious reasons).

Tag-Team Tournament[]

The Tag-Team Tournament, also known as Two's a /co/mpany, is a spin-off character tournament held by /co/ in the website plus4chan. It is contested by pairs of any comic or cartoon character you want to enter, as long as they share a common theme. Canonicity is just as relevant as the context of past contests, so canon pairs like Tom Cat / Jerry Mouse will fight alongside themed pairs like Tom / Felix (iconic cartoon cats), and pairs that require knowledge of past /co/ tournaments like Jackie Lynn / Amity Blight (a lesbian ship born from Mr. /co/ 2020 roleplaying) and Samurai Jack / Simon Laurent (a seed 1 vs. 128 match from the same contest, famous for their gay wedding).
