Our own March Madness Part 3 - The Whedonverse Character Tournament

So we're hosting this tourney, our own "March Madness," to find the best/fan-favorite character of the entire Whedonverse. For the rest of the month we will continue to give out the comletely randomized pairings of characters from Joss Whedon shows: Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Dr. Horrible. Half of the first bracket is now complete in regards to round 1. This next part is going to be a doozy!

Results of Round 2 were surprising. I really didn't see Principal Wood beating Flutie. Also, Gunn vs. Harmony were tied until the very end, with Gunn winning out there. On the other end of the spectrum, Willow swept the floor with Clem...which was the biggest landslide and not surprising. Willow now faces Tara in the top 32 round! Holy hell! Anyway, check out the full list of winners so far. What a motley crew they are:

Final totals: Lilah 16 Xander 39; Gunn 28 to Harmony 27; Kaylee to 18 Fred 37; The Master 29 Gwen 26;
Willow 51 Clem 4; Tara 48 Book 7; Flutie 17 Wood 38; Synder 19 Hammer 36


So here are the pairings for part 3 of round 1. This will be a bit shorter, ending in 3 days - Thurs March 12th at 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time. Just like before, if you want to play, leave your choices in the comments section of this post.

The L.A. Region - Location: The Hyperion Hotel, Los Angeles
Drusilla vs. Dr. Horrible (oooooh)






The Groosalugg vs. Phantom Dennis (Cordy's boys!)






Rupert Giles vs. Riley Finn






Kate Lockley vs. The Cheeseman (Ha!)






Jayne Cobb vs. The First Slayer






Cordelia Chase vs. D'Hoffryn (Cordy would've made a great Vengeance Demon, no?)





Allen Doyle vs. Glory






Wash vs. Angel

Cordelia!!!
Doyle
Angel

Tara said...

OMG, I cannot believe all the Cheeseman votes!! I'm also voting for Cheese, just because when Michelle and I ere trying to sort out what picture of him to use, we were hysterically laughing between the one with the cheese slices on his head vs. the one where he's wiggling the cheese with the Primitive in the background looking all serious. I don't think Kate ever made me that happy. Cheese it is.

My votes:

Dr. Horrible This was the worst for me. I really thought I'd give it to Dru but I'm in love w the Dr.Horrible project so much.

The Groosalugg

Rupert Giles

The Cheeseman

Jayne Cobb

Cordelia Chase

Glory I had a really hard time with this my Glory's my girl. I'm sorry Doyle. I know you're a better character but you're going to win anyway so stop looking at me like that.

Angel

Bitsy said...

Alright let's do it to it!

- Drusilla: I too hold the love for Dr. Horrible as a concp and all it represents for the future of digital media but I love crazy ass vamps named Dru even more. I think Spike would agree.

- Groo: He really grew (hur) on me.

- Giles: Uh... duh.

- The Cheeseman: I wear the cheese. The cheese does not wear me.

- Jayne: If only because of that delightful hat.

- Cordy: thinks you're stupid if you don't vote for her for Homecoming!

- Doyle: If Buffy knew all she needed to defeat Glorificus was a drunken Irish man season ive would have gone a lot easier.

- Angel: Sorry, Wash. Angel is kind of my guy. Don' take it personal. Be a leaf on the wind. Then get stabbed through the chest. No hard feelings though.
