Ms. /co/ 2021 will be the fourth edition of the annual Ms. /co/ tournament held in 4chan's /co/ (Comics & Cartoons) board. The competition is presumed to begin at the second week of September 2021.
How to nominate?
- To nominate a character, a user must include their name, picture, and source. All three characteristics must be present or it will be ignored.
- Each valid nomination must garner at least eight (8) replies in order to qualify for the contest. These replies are only counted if they are all within a single thread. Replies do not carry over to other threads.
- Must originate from /co/ media (Western cartoons and comics) or have a substantial amount of /co/ material.
- Characters of all ages are allowed. Toddlers, teenagers, timeless immortal beings, you name it.
- Puppets are allowed (ex. Sesame Street, Muppets)
- Generalization Statute: When you vote for a character, you also vote for all of their alternative versions, adaptations, and spin-off appearances.
- Characters that are clearly not /co/ are not allowed (ex. /a/nime, live-action /tv/ and films)
- No talking colored horse shows (you know what these are)
- No Board-tans, OC Donut steels, and meme creations
- One-Month Old Clause: Any character debuting in the entirety of the previous month and current month are ineligible.

- Franchise Limit: Only the top 3 girls with the highest votes can advance into the main bracket. This only applies to the qualifier poll however; there is no restriction on how many characters one can nominate from a single franchise.
- Note: Franchise limit DOES NOT apply to Marvel and DC characters.
New restrictions for 2021:
- /v/ideo game characters who didn't originate from /co/ are ineligible
- Characters depicting real-life politicians as cartoons are not allowed; satirical or otherwise
As of this time of writing, there is no confirmation on how many contestants will play in the main bracket, as some anons think that it might expand to 256. Because of this, the bracket layout will not be displayed until further information is released.
