A bit of a low scoring round, but we were still able to determine winners for round 2. 16 swords are left as we figure out which is the best sword in video games.
- 1. Monado defeats 8. Guilded Sword 47-8
- 5. Gunblade defeats 4. Valentine 33-17
- 6. Ragnell defeats 3. Beam Katana 34-18
- 2. Keyblade defeats 7. Great Fairy’s Sword 28-26
We begin round 3 with the Monado’s first true challenge in Final Fantasy’s Gunblade.
Next up is a fight between Ike’s signature sword Ragnell versus the Keyblade, the weapon of Sora… and Riku… and Mickey… and Kairi… and Roxas… and…
- 1. Master Sword defeats 9. Dual Blade 48-4
- 4. Ultima Weapon defeats 5. Honedge 30-22
- 3. Biggoron’s Sword defeats 6. Muramasa 28-23
- 7. Masamune (FF7) defeats 2. Soul Calibur 26-24
Another top sword gets its first true challenge — as well as a Final Fantasy weapon — as the Master Sword faces off against the Ultima Weapon.
In the bottom half of the bracket, it’s another battle of Zelda versus Final Fantasy. It’s Biggoron’s Sword from Ocarina of Time versus Sephiroth’s Masamune.
- 1. Masamune (CT) defeats 9. Sword of Mana 33-17
- 5. Sol Blade defeats 4. 8-Bit Sword 29-23
- 6. Goddess Sword defeats 3. Buster Sword 30-20
- 2. Falchion defeats 10. Eternal Sword 34-16
Masamune survived its first challenge against the Sword of Mana. But it gets more difficult as it faces off against the Sol Blade from Golden Sun.
While the Zelda series missed out in the top half with the 8-Bit Sword, the Goddess Sword made up for it by taking out Cloud’s Buster Sword. But things heat up again as Falchion awaits.
NEO ARCADIA BRACKET
- 9. Sword of Seals defeats 1. Z-Saber 25-23
- 4. Fierce Deity Sword defeats 5. Material Blade 39-11
- 3. Soul Edge defeats 6. Vyse’s Cutlass 28-20
- 2. Rainbow Sword defeats 7. Exor 26-21
Z-Saber is the first top seed out as Roy’s Sword of Seals claims the first big upset. But it has another major obstacle in its way with the Fierce Deity Sword from Majora’s Mask.
And finally, the classic Soul Edge and Chrono Trigger’s Rainbow Sword look to take control of the bracket with the fall of Zero’s blade.
