Week 126: Guest BlueHighwind Week - Biggs v. Wedge
|Unsung, unnoticed, and virtually identical, these are the forgotten heroes of the series. Haven't they suffered enough after their countless deaths? Obviously not! We will see them fight to the death to see who is the better Star Wars reference!|
Votes for Biggs
Votes for Wedge
I am aware that this fight was not in any Queued list on the Nomination page, meaning that nobody asked for it. There's even a good chance you might not like this idea. Well, you know how TacticAngel doesn't care? I care that much less. Cry me a river, Space Monkies. --BlueHighwind ツ 16:56, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Pity, we just had quite a few good ones. Exdeath64 18:30, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
It is a stupid fight if it's on a Star Wars basis – this was still FFWiki last time I looked – which is why I voted on an FF basis. There is one thing I can't complain about, and that's the fact that at least I managed to vote this time. Several fights lately have been too well-matched or had characters I didn't know well enough -- Sorceror Nobody 18:45, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh, god. Zak Undersn 18:57, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
I love Biggs and Wedge but having them fight just isn't right.Immune to stop 19:44, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
Just proves many people on wiki's are morons. Deal with the facts :> Yay...star wars votes on FFWiki. *eyeroll* BoAKaN 21:24, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm not gonna vote on this one. I couldn't care less about Star Wars references, and aside from that, these two are basically the same character to me. JohnnyC
I KNOW! LET'S KEEP COMPLAINING ABOUT THE CURRENT FIGHT BECAUSE IT'S THE TRADITION EVERY SINGLE WEEK AND WE DON'T WANT TO BREAK OUR MONTHS-LONG STANDARD OF GRIPING OVER EVERY SINGLE MATCHUP EVEN WHEN TWENTY OTHER PEOPLE HAVE ALREADY DONE SO!!!! My God, guys. It's a DNC match. If you're not going to vote, we don't need to know - your absence is sufficient. 8bit 21:31, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
I would vote for Chewie. Karu
Rocking Chair 11:19am 14 July 2009 (EST) - Is it really that hard? Just vote if you want to, or don't vote. Stop bitching about every single godamn fight!
Week 125: BAD FIGHT WEEK V
59 to 22 1/2
|Many hate them, some love them, some can't really remember them. Which girl is more popular/less annoying?|
Votes for Penelo
Votes for Rikku
As a fan of both these ladies, I'm proud to say that I cannot decide between the two. Penelo is actually a down-to-earth girl who has lost more than her parents and has the guts to keep Vaan in line. As for Rikku, she may be hyper-active but she's actually very protective of her people and her beliefs. Sure, X-2 kinda ruined her but still. I'll decide when the time comes.--Cluna 06 18:18, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm not going to vote to the most empty character in the series and in many other RPGs. If were the FFX's Rikku, maybe she would get my vote. But never for the idiot for-fapers character she becomed in FFX-2. Rai Balmung, the gargoyle 19:15, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Great. Another one I can't decide. Penelo has great mage stats, and like Vaan I don't hate her like other people inexplicably do. Rikku is one of my favourite "bubbly ditzes" and while she can be annoying, that's usually taken as a given for Nomura's bubbly ditzes. Both are pretty hot, though Rikku is more so. Sure X-2 made Rikku less likeable, but at least it didn't make her less useful like Revenant Wings did to Penelo. But then Penelo is classed as a viera in TA2, which trumps all. This is too difficult... too many conflicting issues... can't make up mind... -- Sorceror Nobody 19:43, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh, what the hell. And to anon's vote nº1 for Rikku: Yes, you have to sign. Zak Undersn 20:53, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
"SIT DOWN IN THAT CHAIR AND SIGN YOUR GODDAMN VOTES!"
If you vote and do not sign, anonymous or not (though you anonymous people are the ones who are still showing this problem) then it will not count. So you know how to do it properly, when you are voting, it should look something like this:
# This is an example of a properly signed anonymous vote that will count and therefore not be a total waste of time and effort. ~~~~
When you click Preview, it should look something like this:
well, thanks, since I'm new, I hope you give me a little leeway. SpekzWink 01:10, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Okay, this one is a hard one to decide. Penelo has FFXII's battle system, which makes it impossible (or close to) to say that a particular character sucks in battle because it's not their fault, it's yours. Rikku is the better looking of the two, but she was my weakest character in both the games she was in (in all fairness, Penelo is my weakest in FFXII, but not in FFXIIRW), and thiefs aint that good. I'll probably vote after I have thought on it some more.00:42, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Although X-2 Rikku was annoying (but not a complete ret con, lelt me emphesize that), she's still a Hell of a lot better than Penelo. Coupled with FFX Rikku, it's no contest.Neo Bahamut 15:12, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
You may be glad that I decided to be brief, but not completely explanatory in my vote for Rikku. Sure, I could have given a full account of the reasons why I hate Penelo, and why I like Rikku slightly better, but that would have broken the internet. Lets leave it at this. Maybe I'll elaborate on my Userpage someday. The Man In The Black Cape 20:41, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Both of these girls remind me of the Olson Twins. Just saying. Mask no Oni 06:13, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Nice, I've voted on three losing sides in a row. Bangaa Red Mage 08:25, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Why has Armageddon signed his post with my name(eeven though its in a much larger font, bold, and with caps) ? The Man In The Black Cape 08:34, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh wait, given that Xlatinsorax sees the same thing, I'm assuming that the name takes that of the user looking at it. That must require hella lotta coding. The Man In The Black Cape 08:34, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Its time I gave my comments. Ok, anyone you ask about me who I like more between these two lovely ladies will tell you I have a hell of a time choosing between them. Rikku is the epitome of sexy. Penelo is more reserved and quiet than Rikku, but both girls hold places in my heart. At least Rikku has the purpose in the story. Penelo... not so much. Penelo makes one hell of a fighter and mage. Her stats are fairly well rounded. Why do I like these girls? Simple. Rikku reminds me of my girlfriend, and so does Penelo. Anyway, yeah... Both girls are my favorite. This fight was more unfair than Rydia versus Quistis. TheBlueDragoon 03:05, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
44 to 40 1/2
|Two of the series' most beloved summoners from two of the more old-fashioned game. Their peculiar taste in clothing aside, which of these ladies can summon the victory?||Q?|
Votes for Rydia
Votes for Garnet
SIGN YOUR GODDAMN VOTES AND THEN DRINK YOUR GODDAMN TEA! Seriously, these damn anonymous voters piss me off! Why waste our time and your own? Ok, now that the rant is out of the way, this was another hard fight to vote on. TheBlueDragoon 03:21, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Well Fae, why do you like Quistis? Drake Clawfang 18:00, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
I shall make teh fanboys butthurt when I say Rydia has about as much importance as a blade of grass. Oh, and she spent her puberty in furryland. Template:BfDsig
Yikes, it seems like I pissed off someone. Sorry, but Eiko's the better summoner in FFIX. Since summons need their full-animation to deal full power in IX (which was fairly rare), Dagger's attack summons just didn't have the impact necessary to make up for the MP cost. Eiko, on the other hand, had a full set of White Magic and hade some good support summons. If this was Rydia versus Eiko, then I might go with Eiko due to her being an overall useful character. Plus, at least Rydia didn't have a random silent effect mid-game like Dagger. Just what we need, a mage that can't use magic. ClixPsi
Incidentally, what's so weird about Garnet's outfit? Even if it is a little odd, which I don't think it particularly is, it's nowhere near Rydia's "peculiar taste in clothing" -- Sorceror Nobody 10:52, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
where did all of Garnet's votes go? Hamfruitcake 09 09:12, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Votes for Edgar
Votes for Balthier
Is there a reason there's an anonymous vote in the user's box? TheBlueDragoon 03:22, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Heehee. A fight where my disdain for XII gets to come out twice. Although I haven't gotten far with Edgar (I REALLY hope there's more to him than "King siding with the Returners,") like I said, there was a POINT to him. And he was useful, with tools that could hit all enemies, & the chainsaw. Balthier seems to just tag along so Vaan & co. can listen to his snarky lines.Neo Bahamut 14:45, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm just curious, but how the hell did my username end up in larger letters, and it wasm't my post to begin with? TheBlueDragoon 03:39, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
As much as the "Balthierfapfapfapfapfap" mentality is annoying me, I have to note that Edgar is not the only FF character to use a chainsaw. Vincent's Hellmasker Limit Break. Both also wear hockey masks, oddly enough.Neo Bahamut 23:04, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
