This is it! We are down to our final two villains. And if you saw the thumbnail, you know exactly who made it. So, here are the results from the previous round.
- Kefka defeats Golbez with 76% of the vote
There’s really nothing much to say about this. It’s another blowout win for Kefka. As for the other battle…
- Magus defeats Lavos with 58% of the vote
This one was more intriguing, as the two had actually fought in their main game. In that battle, Lavos drained Magus of his power, leaving him unable to stop the parasite on his own. That battle also brought up questions about whether Magus should win. Well, this time around, Magus soundly defeated his rival and claimed a spot in the finals.
Here we go—a battle between No. 1 and No. 2. In one corner, we have a madman who joyously poisoned the water supply of a castle, assassinated his own king, killed the espers to take their power, and showed no remorse when he destroyed the world as we knew it. In the tournament, he plowed through GALAM from Cosmic Fantasy 2, pierced the impenetrable armor of General Zelgius from Fire Emblem, subdued the magic of Ghaleon from Lunar: Silver Star Story, claimed godhood over Zanza from Xenoblade Chronicles, and thwarted the plans of Golbez from Final Fantasy IV. The overall Number 1 seed in the tournament, from Final Fantasy VI—KEFKA PALAZZO!
And in the other corner, we have a villain who was taken from his time and trained to be the Fiendlord and leader of the Mystics. He killed the knight Cyrus, turned his squire into a frog, and started a war to gain power. In the tournament, he shot past the White Rock Shooter from Black Rock Shooter, sliced through Seifer from Final Fantasy VIII, knocked out Blue from Pokémon, wasted the best laid plans of Mithos Yggdrasill from Tales of Symphonia, and got revenge against his in-game nemesis Lavos. The top seed from the Toriyama bracket, from Chrono Trigger—MAGUS!
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your championship battle. The poll will be open for five days, meaning you have until Friday night at midnight PDT to vote for the villain you think is the best. Good luck, and happy voting!
