    Neither has Doffy really; he usually does well against small fry but loses badly against the bigger names.

    That actually kinda surprised me since I figured he'd do better after the last arc. Then again, I don't remember the 2014 tournament too much.

    I heard tales and murmurs and behind closed doors... but witnessing the sheer unpredictability and horror of the APCT first hand is really something else.

    Poor Doffy... grumble grumble

    Croc, Enel and Buggy have all done quite well in the past. People root for badguys just fine.

    Just not... THOSE badguys.

    Also, two years of Doflamingo burned out his hype some, I think.

    I feel like a lack of recent screentime does play a small part there, as well.

    Pretty sure he still did horrible even after his screentime in Impel Down and the Marineford battle.

    This happened just 10 chapters after Teach has appeared in Marineford.

    Shit.

    I miss the first match of the tournament and Doffy bites the dust?

    Man that was an intense fight for the last slot in Match 3. Four people and tied till the end between little Vinsmoke and Pudding. Congrats to the multieyed.

    Granny totally would have won if she'd gotten that tie.

    By the way, is this the first time a tag team passes the preliminaries?

    Drat, missed the first few rounds (like quite a few others it seems). My poor Otohime. Oh well, at least Pudding survived. No campaigning from me this year, too laz...er, busy...

    Good luck, everyone that isn't opposing my favorites.

    Just an idea for future tournaments, but when a character tournament coincides with the beginning of a new arc where loads of characters are being re/introduced, could the last prelim be like half-filled with new characters as something of a wildcard division? I have no doubt that Reiju, for instance, would make it into the second round if she had been introduced a week earlier, and Aladdin and Yonji might have made good showings too.

    During Dressrosa, we actually had a mini-Tournament before the main one simply because of the sheer number of new characters being introduced.

    It's always been policy though to require that the character been introduced and had an image provided by Oda before the nominations process began though.

    I forgot to answer this earlier. No, Johnny and Yosaku advanced through the first year we did Prelims, Gaimon and Sarfunkel managed to do it once, and Monkey and his Doma made it through twice.

    Iceberg and Tyrannosaurus not only made it through the Prelims in 2013 but won their First Round Match.

    We tossed the Prelims in 2014; Aphelandra and Moriah made it to the Fourth Round that year.
