Fan Characters will be competing for $1,000,000.
Saiy-onara Daisuke. It's time for you to head on out.
Daisuke was one of the starts of the first half of the season, I really had so much fun with his character. Make no mistake, as the early game and the final two episodes showed. Daisuke is a good guy in heart. It's just when the pressure of the game.... among other things got to him, he freaked out and lost his marbles, and ended up doing things that would not be considered heroic in the slightest, but still having the best intentions at heart, such as wanting good to win over evil.
However, there were two things that led to his elimination. 1.) His Arc was completed as of Episode 7, him redeeming himself from all of the paranoia, and all of the unrest he had over the past several episodes was cleared up, and completed his redemption storyline, this episode was the resolution and winding his story down. 2.) Kinda goes with the character itself, as was made a plotpoint. Had Daisuke made the merge, it would have been a bloodbath, he would have dominated anything remotely physical, plus given he was in a way the defacto head of the "Super Powered" Players, now that the game is no longer pure Normals vs Supers, and due to that, it was time for him to leave as well.
Yep, saw that coming a mile away, but it didn't make it hurt any less. I honestly don't understand why so many people hated Daisuke. I honestly liked him from start to finish, since he wore his heart on his sleeve, and I love characters like that. Not lying bitches like Cordelia; they aren't fun. A character like Daisuke is admirable, and in any other season, he might've made the jury or merge, but I guess he just had to leave here. He made me very happy, and hopefully he can return sometime in the future. But, just like that, we lose a hero going (possibly) into the merge. That isn't a good sign.

@Tailslover13: I like how Leah and Zach rose and Sylvia and Dustin dropped XP
@ChronoAlone: I'll repeat what I said on Deviantart, since it's how I really feel:
Indeed. I'm rooting super hard for the Supers at this point (Gekkota excluded, since she's a snake), since this isn't about the "underdog Normals" anymore. It's about who are just the better, more likable characters. Ky, Taro, Leah and Zach are those characters. I'm sick and tired of Sylvia's love she keeps getting for no damn reason, so she's way down on my list. Dustin has become irritating; I can only take so much stupid before I burst. Cordelia...is Satan. So...yeah, Zach and Leah have been improving themselves, so for now, I like them.
@Tailslover13: I see. Well, I won't judge you for your opinion. While I may like Sylvia and Dustin personally, I can see where you're coming from there.
@ChronoAlone: It's alright. There's nothing as horrible about them as, say, Cordelia and Brandi...but it's just my own desires of what I like and don't like.
With Sylvia, I just don't like how so many people seem to adore her and love her, when she hasn't done ANYTHING to warrant it! Trust me, if you've seen Deviantart, Sylvia has been consistently at the top of everyone's rankings since the preseason. And she still is to this day, and I just hate that. It's like how a lot of people hate Five Nights At Freddy's, or My Little Pony, or any other thing that people feel don't deserve all the praise and admiration they get (even though I love both). Sylvia is just...there. She's basically just Leah...without powers. That's it.
With Dustin...again, I just can't take SO much stupid. A little stupid is fine, but...not over and over and over. Plus, he's no Craig. Sorry, but he's not. Ky shows how you can do OTTP correctly, without taking it to stupid levels. And he hasn't shown to get over that fact, either. He's just gonna keep going along this stupid route, and it's...irritating.
So, again, both characters are fundamentally fine. I'm just starting to not like them due to my own personal beliefs and desires.
@Tailslover13: Makes sense.
Yeah, she's getting a little blown out of proportion, but at least it's not Brandi that's getting that treatment. Honestly, I just like having a generally nice red head for a change. Not really a great reason to like her, but I do like that. She has her cute moments too.
Yeah, Dustin's pretty stupid, but I dunno, I might just have a soft spot for surfer dudes. I just imagine Crush from Finding Nemo speaking those lines, and it makes me laugh. Again though, I see where you're coming from. And yes, Ky is amazing. I was genuinely surprised by him, honestly.
Not a problem. I'm glad you stuck to your guns and dropped who you wanted to drop without worrying about others. Good job, man :)
@ChronoAlone: Thanks. I did what I felt was right, like you suggested.
My father was a redhead...and I've honestly hated them for a good part of my life. Not to mention most of them in SFC have been...well, bitches. So, it IS nice to have a "tolerable" one, but...there still needs to be more than that.
SWSU himself has a soft spot for that stereotype. It's why he loved Geoff & Brody from The Ridonculous Race. But...wait, what exactly surprised you about Ky? *looks back to the cast release to see your comment* Ooh, that's right...you got pissed off that he was a Sonic representative and was complaining that you didn't want to see him. Well, you weren't the only one thinking that~
@Tailslover13: Good on ya, mate.
Hopefully the merge will bring out the best of her. I'm curious to see what she might do.
To be fair, he's like the ninth Sonic character we've had. Can't really blame me for being unexcited for another one ^^; I will say though, he is my favorite Sonic character in this series so far. No disrespect to Artemis of course.
@ChronoAlone: Thank you, my Australian friend~
I'm curious as well. At this point, it's a whole new game, pretty much. Maybe.
No, it's fine; I'm used to that, and it's mostly warranted. If I had to personally rank all of the Sonic characters we've had (yes, including my own, since I'm shamefully biased and proud of it), I would say:
1. Artemis (Adore)
2. Ky (Adore)
3. Malik (Love)
4. Knuckles (Love)
5. Chaona (Love)
6. Slash (Like)
7. Tofuchao (Neutral)
8. Amber (Neutral)
9. Bea (Dislike)
10. Zachary (Dislike)
@Tailslover13: We lost alot of villains, we needed to keep it kinda even
Damn. I'm gonna miss Dai. Sure he was annoying when he was a paranoid wreck, but he was a great guy. This is the first boot of the game that I'm genuinely upset by, but it'll only get worse from here.
Hopefully though, this'll give Marie the fuel to destroy Brandi. It probably won't happen though. That would be too happy of an ending for her.
@ChronoAlone: I may surprise you yet
Daisuke was cool but we didn't need both him and Ky since they would have essentially the same arc. Still, I always love heroes who constantly screw up despite their best intentions.
@Thorne: And plus Daisuke's elimination really clears room for Ky
The greatest sadness for me here is not seeing the jury start on this TC. I'd have really liked to have seen Daisuke sitting on that jury bench at the very least.
That being said, their "plan" was less than I had hoped, but it was certainly there. On top of that, they actually pulled one over on Cordellia and Gekkota on voting for Sheaga. By not voting for Brandi, they should look REALLY bad in her eyes, and Marie can claim that Brandi lied to her about voting for Shaega :P
Past that, the merge should be interesting. Brandi should realistically be starting on the bottom here, but we'll see just how long that lasts.
@anime9001: I mean Marie's main squeeze was just booted, her first partner was eliminated by Brandi as well, and she was outcasted by her tribe for the longest time. SFC has not been kind to her so far. But yes, I hope Dai's boot gives her the perseverance to turn it up to 11.
@anime9001: There are still old Tribal Divisions to take into consideration
@SWSU-Master: There are, but a lot of groundwork has been built for the contrary.
Craaaaaaaap. Just when I was liking Daisuke more and more. He hit a rough patch in the middle there but all in all he was a great character that will be sorely missed.
Going into the merge, I really like the cast we have. It obviously would have been awesome to have Dai instead of Brandi but nothing can be perfect I guess...
Really excited about where Shaega's character is going, that voting confessional about setting Daisuke "free" was sufficiently creepy. Just hoping that all the remaining contestants can somehow band together and take out the cancer of the season that is Brandi!
Shaega > Ky > Taro > Marie > Zach > Sylvia > Leah > Dustin > Gekkota > Cordelia >>>>>>>>>>>>> Brandi
@dat4yc: A good song to fit the occasion of Dai's elimination. "A Hero's victory in defeat. While Daisuke falls, he entrusts his care and support in Marie."
This song fits for the occasion of Dai's elimination I think.
@dat4yc: Or Brandi may overcome all of the odds and win
Well that sucked. Just when we were starting to love him, his story's over, and he didn't even make the jury phase. While nothing's going to change the fact that he's just a terrible strategist, he just made me smile every time he showed up. But I guess it may be a good thing that a Super Saiyan didn't make it further than he did, as he could've made the merge so painfully boring.
If there's just one thing I can hope for with this merge, it would be the possibility of Brandi and Cordelia turning on each other. And I know the tanooki who's gonna make it happen!
5. Sylver Side Up
Brandi made me download Windows 10.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: brandi made windows vista.
EDIT: she also created clippy.
@GaryHawkinsLandscaper: Yeah, Daisuke would have been too powerful
This is evil. I'm rereading Harry Potter right now so I think the comparison is apt; Brandi is Umbridge, but she thinks she's a good guy instead of being remorselessly evil. It's painful to watch her be in charge.
@Vilecheese: OOoh neat. I've never read HP, but Umbridge always seemed to stir up controversy online
@SWSU-Master: It is probably the greatest book series of all time so read it kthx.
What I'm getting at with the comparison is that this season feels a LOT like OotP, where we have basically a group of bad guys getting their way FAR too often. It's intended to annoy you, to aggravate you, to keep you reading so you finally get to the part where the comeuppance is most delicious. It's being done a LOT better here than in SFC9 in any case, 'cause again there are actually multiple characters to root for and they KNOW what they're facing. A corrupt establishment.
@Vilecheese: One of the greatest book series of all time. I can think of at least a couple series that I rate at higher quality than Harry Potter, as wonderful as those books are.
Was kinda hoping that the 'who we can trust' speech would lead to at worst a blindside of Cordelia....
@qazox: Alas, there was no buildup to that
Honestly, though, I'd rather it be Daisuke than anyone else on this tribe (sans Brandi). Anyone else leaving right now would be a really bad end to their story.
- Bury the hatchet
- - Lolno
- Hidden Power
- - Uh, I don't know, actually. One of Taro or... maybe Shaega? Hard to say.
@coolkyledude: Sorry bout that, but Daisuke had to leave
On one hand, it's sad to see Daisuke go in such an obvious way. On the other, he took it like a champ, good for you buddy. Now hopefully Marie doesn't just get thrown out immediately post-merge just cuz.
As for the true hidden power, I'm still really curious if Shaega has something hidden. Even though he technically was on the non-power tribe, he is still from the Shaman King universe, and that being a series I know fairly well and enjoy, Shamans can have some rather strange and interesting powers. Or it could be something else random too.
Post-merge game is looking interesting, not sure entirely what to think. In terms of who might win, I don't feel like Cordelia or Brandi have any sort of shot since I doubt people would sincerely vote for either, and possibly throwing Gekkota on that list too. Sheaga's change could throw him in a more positive direction, or Taro or Ky simply being themselves, or Sylvia's basic gameplay strats, it's really hard to say who has the best shot. All I can say if that Cordelia somehow wins, I'm gonna be pissed XD.
@Shyruni: Just be prepared to be pissed. Just in case
Character Submission Template
Several years and a couple of computers later, and I have completely forgotten where I can find the character submission template. Can you link me to it?
this sucks... but yeah, every physical challenge would be pointless with daisuke around. i'm still gonna miss him. at least daisuke will no longer lose years of his life from survivor stress!
at least brandi and marie will have their showdown soon. i haven't cared for brandi too much recently. as much as i want to enjoy her ottn failure detective story. she's too much like post-merge yvonne, except brandi's been like that throughout the pre-merge.
who wrote dice-k? lol
next episode... shaega reveals he can channel all kinds of spirits, and have them speak through his body. maybe?
@Congo: Lets say Cordelia made that vote
Well, at least he left with a smile. Daisuke sure was a likeable survivor and although I knew he was an immunity threat I expected him to make the merge and then lose in a mental challenge just as Brandi explained. Too bad she still voted against him just when he went from naive powerhouse to great friend. I'll remember him
I guess Marie shouldn't have suggested a Brandi boot with Gekkota around. At least the two girls might finally team up once Brandi learns that she is not the sole leader anymore after the merge. Looks like Taro has something new to show us this episode, too unless it happens to be someone unexpected...
Brandi doesn't look happy. Nowadays, that's kind of the norm... but it's something to think about.
The vote didn't go according to what I thought in my head. I guess Brandi is finally letting go of the witch hunt? ...I'll believe it when I see it. If it's true, Cordelia might be next in her cross-hairs...
As for the Preview: The Merge is finally here! Get used to seeing these faces... you'll be seeing them for a long time. And finally, a hidden power revealed? Maybe Taro? I mean, making sushi is a pretty awesome power in itself, but I was hoping for something more flashy.
On a different subject: Danganronpa 2 unlocks today! I am all the excites to play it. I'm gonna make personal bets on who'll live to the end. I.... got kinda emotional from the first one.
@RedBeryl: Dang, I forgot that came out today. I don't have enough money to buy it ;-;
Have fun with the predictions dude. But trust me, if the first game made you emotional, the second game will destroy you...
Have fun! :)
It's a shame about Daisuke. Despite his stretch of tremendous paranoia, he really came through for Marie in the clutch. Overall, I liked him. Shame he didn't make jury.
Why is there no iconic I love you scene??
Marisuke fans are heartbroken rn.
I won't lie, the pre merge to this season was a little bit of a downer. Unless SWSU is building up for a Second Chance season, most of the pre merge players didn't feel like their story arcs ended. Lea, Juli, Tamara, Daisuke even.
The ditto was wasted potential. The squid was wasted potential. Tamara felt more then just a pre merge boot. Daisuke... he should have been a reverse Enter; throwing all the challenges to give the others a fighting chance.
And now entering the Final 11... we'll be soon walking into a big surprise. Maybe it won't be as big as Hash's, but I suspect it will be. Taro or Shaega? We'll have to see...
Marie > Gekkota > Brandi > Cordelia > Shaega
Zach > Leah > Dustin > Taro > Sylvia > Ky
Again, that is all based on their edit, and ability to win the game.
@TJBambi93: Why not include a rankings list like mine? Basically, one that DOES rank the players from favorite to least favorite? I mean, having a contenders ranking list is nice; kinda like an Edgic. But, it'd be fun to see your actual rankings, too.
Like, who are your favorites in the game? Not to win, but those that you just love?
@TJBambi93: I don't know, I thought Dai's character arc ended nicely. Logically, he was the best to leave, as the others have more to offer for the narrative at this point. I wanted him to stay, but what can you do?
@TrollDoll: You think Marie and Dustin are going next or in the Final 2?
@Joey the Badass Wheeler: Final 2. I think if there's a final 3 shaegiggles will be goat who gets no votes.
...well, i'm gonna go vomit and cut myself now.
Pokemon of th- wait, i missed a few days. Aw well, nobody cares.
Pokemon of the day: Wartortle (The best Gen 1 Pokemon (IN MY BIGOTED OPINION))
Wartortle is a Water type Pokemon that is number 8 in the Pokedex. It is also my boi.
Due to it being a Water type, Walter is weak to Grass and Electric, but takes half damage from Steel, Fire, Water and Ice.
Walt Disney has an 87.5% chance to be male, and a catch rate of 5.9%
Waxing can be received by evolving a Squirtle at level 16, and later can evolve itself into a Blastoise at level 36. But why would it do that? that would stop it from being amazing.
K. i'm gonna go do the aforementioned cutting myself and vomiting.
R.I.P Daisuke. I loved him from day 1 all the way to now. Even if he got a bit rocky at points, he never stopped being entertaining. God Speed, Not-Goku.
''One Player reveals their hidden power'' I KNEW IT, TARO HAD SOMETHING TO HIDE THIS WHOLE TI-*Gets hit in the head with a rock* Owww
Is Brandi actually coming around on Marie? Could Brandi actually start being tolerable again?... Nahhh.
