Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and anyone inbetween, I'm Some Color Mage and it is with pleasure that, along with my fellow tournament runners Deadlyslashsword and ScatheMote I can announce the latest incarnation of the wiki's large scale character tournament;


That's right, Magicite Madness III! We've gathered 384 characters from across the series to fight it out for the great reward of... bragging rights! WOW!!!

Oh, and I guess they'll be able to have a showdown with the champion of Magicite Madness II, Terra Branford, as well. That's kinda cool.

For those of you who were here 3 years ago, MMIII is largely unchanged from II, the only big difference is in scale. For those who weren't here three years ago, just think of the Dragon's Neck Colosseum, but bigger.

You are going to need an account to vote. Lucky for those anons reading, registering is a very simple process, just click on the login button on the top right of the page and follow the instructions.

We will be starting on July 7, and it'll go on for four months, ending on the first weekend of November, assuming there's no delays or refights, with new fights every week. If you want more info, the rules and bracket are located right over here. It's going to be big, don't miss out!

General Discussion

I'd like to ask that people not use their talk bubbles here. It just makes it easier to have multiple conversations at once. Also, every fight will have a peanut gallery, like in the DNC, so don't use this space for fight specific conversations. Thanks! -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 05:30, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

The winner of MM2 was actually Refia. This tourney needs to not end with that madness. --BlueHighwind 22:15, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

What madness? We're going, very clearly, off the fight marked as the final round, where Terra was the victor over Sazh. There clearly wasn't any post-final round or argument related to it. Nope. Not at all. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 22:37, July 2, 2013 (UTC)

I thought we were resolved to never do one of these ever again because people take the internet too seriously.

You my friend, need to have more faith in the internet. - +DeadlySlashSword+ 04:45, July 8, 2013 (UTC)

Fanart for the Finals

OK guys, we're getting close to the finals and we want your help. For the last few rounds of the tournament, we want to showcase some fanart of the contestants instead of using similar pieces of official art over and over. So we want you to help point us towards fanart that you'd like to see shown off. Any source is fine (although we prefer sources where we can easily talk to the artist to get permission) and you are allowed to suggest your own work if you wish. Just leave your suggestions below (and please note which character it is) and we'll pick out the best. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 02:09, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

A few suggestions from me: Edgar (n/a) | Kefka (source) | Beatrix (1) (n/a) | Beatrix (2) (source) | Zidane (1) (source) | Zidane (2) (n/a) | Zidane (3) (source) | Kuja (1) (source) | Kuja (2) (source) 2ea674f6.pngKujaBox 04:21, September 22, 2013 (UTC)

Fanart ideas? Well, I don't have sources beyond safebooru/danbooru, but here - Zidane, Zidane, Beatrix, Kuja, Celes, Kefka, Aerith, Aerith, Aerith, More Aerith. Drake Clawfang (talk) 20:47, September 23, 2013 (UTC)

Do we plan on getting the permission of the artists to use these? If not, I would highly suggest not taking this route.
That is why we are asking for sources, yes. We won't be picking anything that we can't use under our copyright policies. -- Some Color Mage ~ (Talk) 02:31, September 26, 2013 (UTC)

Potential theme-change based on winner

I designed a Zidane skin which can be viewed here, and a Celes skin which is the same as the default skin but with different logo (because the default colours work well anyway). I haven't designed an equal theme for monobook since monobook is mostly devoid of colour, however I could create a logo and change the header of the contentboxes (like on the mainpage) if we wanted to do that.

I had the idea of changing the theme based on who wins MMIII. We'd keep it for like a week or month. Though it's close to Halloween so maybe we want to do that instead? No one's mentioned it yet, but I could work on something if we wanted one.

Eh: Do we want to change the Oasis theme based on the winner? JBed (talk) 22:10, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

I like the idea.Keltainentoukokuu (talk) 23:58, October 20, 2013 (UTC)
