~*Simple Explanation of Extrapolated Standings*~
A = Strongest Character
B = Character Weaker than A
C = Character Weaker than B
To figure out a character's extrapolated percentage ---> [(CvB)(BvA)]/50 = CvA
To compare how C would do against B ---> [(CvA)/(BvA)]*50 = CvB
To figure out how B would do against A ---> [(CvA)/(CvB)]*50 = BvA

If Donkey Kong had just almost doubled Bowser in 2002 going into the Mario match, I bet people would have been arguing Donkey Kong over Mario straight-up.

Is Mario SFFing Sonic or is Sonic much, much weaker than an SFF'd DK? Sonic is getting demolished here. I wonder how well Link will do in the finals.

Rallies aren't that bad when they aren't really changing anything. It's close enough to no rallying. Like imagine if the Tom Nook rally was successful and Tony Hawk never makes his run. That would have been a disaster. Fortunately, the rally wasn't that strong.

Mario and Sonic literally have the SAME EXACT FANBASE.

If this match was on our site, I predict 75-25.

Yeah, rallies are more likely to ruin things. If you need a rally to make a contest interesting then the bracket was poorly constructed (or in TheRinger's case, everyone has the same opinion)

The one that triggered me was the dude writing about Luigi and repeatedly calling him Luigi Mario

That was an Easter egg from the Super Mario Bros. Super Show. On the live-action portion they called themselves Mario Mario and Luigi Mario because they are the Mario "Bros.". He obviously is an 80s baby.

Sonic has looked weaker than DK in every round prior to this. The only reason to take Sonic over DK on The Ringer is because Sonic is strong here.

Edit: My initial intention was to look at North Korea's overall results, but unfortunately it doesn't have any votes.

Because he won on their Facebook and Instagram polls, which don't post their vote totals. I only used the main site and Twitter polls since they actually give their vote totals.
