Sstavix, I need your advice on deciding Tails vs Magneto. I don't know enough about either character to make a good judgement.
I had to do a bit of research into Tails' abilities to answer this question myself. I know that Tails is capable of flight by spinning his two tails like a helicopter blade. Magneto is capable of flight by using his power on the metal portions of his costume. So they can easily match each other in the air.

But Tails lacks pretty much any offensive power whatsoever. Apparently, he's capable of tinkering with machines and has used them in some of the games, but we know that that is largely ineffective against Magneto. (Fun fact: Even though he's been called the "Master of Magnetism," Magneto's been able to use his mutant power to manipulate any sort of metal, including non-ferrous ones!) Magneto would be more than capable of pelting Tails with whatever metal he can attract - possibly from Tails' own disassembled mech - until the twin-tailed fox eventually grew too tired to dodge any more. It would be a long, but one-sided fight with an inevitable conclusion.

Well, I would say that there are enough votes to post the results.

(This section hurt my picks :()

#1 The Flash defeats #9 Herman Munster 5 to 0
#4 Sonic defeats #5 Baby Mario 4 to 0

#5 Katniss Everdeen defeats #4 Captain Cold 3 to 1 ( :( .....)
#3 Bowser Jr defeats #6 MC Enderman 3 to 1
#2 Iron Man defeats #10 Daisy.

#6 Peach and #3 Elsa Tied.
Heads for Elsa, Tails for Peach
Today's coin flip brought to you by a 1971 dollar coin!
Tails! Peach wins! (....)

If anyone wants to try to pick results for the nest round the matchups are:

#1 Mario vs #5 Gandalf

#3 Captain America vs #2 Luigi
#1 The Flash vs #4 Sonic

Apparently, Luigi is angry with Captain America for defeating Baby Luigi. :lol:
Speedsters account for 1/2 the remaining characters.
#6 characters are doing surprisingly well.

#3 Captain America vs #2 Luigi

#2 Reverse-Flash vs #6 Peach
#1 Zoom vs #5 Katniss Everdeen
#3 Bowser Jr. vs #2 Iron Man
Hmm... if I had to guess the results...
-Mario and Gandalf are tough since it's hard to tell what the limit of their abilities are. I think I'll skip this one. XD
-Tails (Namely due to his chaos form.)
-Bowser
-Luigi (Captain is great, but Luigi's ridiculous stunts and power-ups likely gives him an edge.)
-Sonic (The Flash can go through time, though Sonic can go Super Sonic, and then Hyper Sonic, and if that's not enough... Darkspine Sonic.)
-Reverse-Flash (gotta go fast)
-I actually don't know a lot about these two, though if Zoom is as fast as Flash... then probably Zoom.
-Iron Man
Be part of the answer, not part of the problem.

Mario vs Gandalf? I don't really know a whole lot about Gandalf, but as most video games go, the good guy defeats the bad guy no matter what. So I'll give the edge to Mario for this one (plus I like him more :P)

Tails vs Magneto? I don't know ANYTHING about Magneto, so I'm gonna skip this one.

Bowser VS Dr. Eggman? Oooo 2 main villains facing off! Bowser from Mario series and Dr. Eggman from Sonic series! Although Dr. Eggman is kinda smart, I don't think he can do well with Bowser's offensive power. Plus Bowser can just burn Eggman's stuff, leaving Eggman's with just burnt pieces of wire and metal to fight with. Which...probably would only make Bowser angry. Bowser wins!

Captain America VS Luigi? Tough one, Captain America is quite strong and is capable of making really good shots. Luigi however could probably dodge the attacks. I think after a long battle, Luigi would win. Especially if he turned into fire Luigi and fired multiple fireballs at him, idk how long Captain America could hold up.

Can't say for the others, I mostly know just about 1 character and not the other.
I love playing Mario games! :D :D :D :D :D They are so awesome!!!

Sone interesting matchups in this section....
#1 Mario vs #5 Gandalf
#6 Tails vs #2 Magneto
#1 Bowser vs #5 Dr. Eggman
#3 Captain America vs #2 Luigi
#1 The Flash vs #4 Sonic
#2 Reverse-Flash vs #6 Peach
#1 Zoom vs #5 Katniss Everdeen
#3 Bowser Jr. vs #2 Iron Man
Mario vs. Gandalf? Mario can take out Magikoopa, so Gandalf won't be too much more difficult than that. Mario wins!

Tails vs. Magneto I already discussed. Magneto wins!

It's interesting that the central villain of two franchises end up facing each other! I think I'll have to give the nod to Bowser, simply because he's got much more physical might. Bowser wins!

Captain America vs. Luigi? Their abilities are so varied, this one would be a hard one to predict. Cap could use his shield to protect himself against Luigi's stomp, but that would leave him vulnerable to Luigi's other forms of attacks, too. I'm leaning towards Luigi winning this one.

The Flash vs. Sonic? Are they having a footrace? :lol: I think I'll choose Sonic as the winner, because there are too many Flash clones in the roster, anyway. :P

With Reverse-Flash and Peach, I think RF will win this one (I'm disappointed that he wasn't eviscerated by River in the last round. :( ). Peach doesn't have much in terms of offensive powers, since her strength lies mainly in defense.

Zoom vs. Katniss. Ms. Everdeen is talented and skilled, but has no superpowers. I think the villain has this match in the bag, too.

Finally, I believe Iron Man would easily be able to tear apart Bowser Jr's airship and give the spoiled brat the boot. Iron Man wins!

Thing is, if Bowser Jr's airship is taken out, he still has his junior clown car for backup. Still, I think iron man would still defeat Bowser Jr. :(

I was really hoping Peach could go on, but by now I think she can't do well facing off against Reverse-Flash. Oh well...

Sorry I was so late.
I'll try to be more on time in the future.

Mario vs Magneto? Well since Magneto is made of metal...and Mario can shoot fire...I don't think Magneto would last long. Mario wins!

Bowser vs Luigi? Luigi defeats Bowser in most games. Though if his personality was to come into play, then Luigi would probably be on his knees shaking like crazy due to being so scared. Then Bowser is free to burn Luigi up. Bowser wins!

I don't know enough about the characters in the last 2 match ups.

Looks like only 2 more to go after this!

Magneto isn't made of metal. :lol: He's a mutant (of the X-Men variety, to be precise) who has control over metal. Even so, I'd agree with your assessment. As long as Mario doesn't become Metal Mario, I think our Italian plumber will defeat the German villain. That would be an impressive fight, though. Perhaps Nintendo needs to look into a Smash Bros. vs. Marvel game. :)

As for the other match-ups... already the Final Four? Things have progressed quickly.

As for Bowser vs. Luigi, I also think Bowser would defeat Luigi. Mainly because I would want to avoid a Mario vs. Luigi match-up. ;)

Sonic vs. Reverse-Flash? Well, Sonic defeated the original Flash, so he won't have any problem defeating a Flash wanna-be. ;) Sonic wins!

Now Zoom vs. Iron Man is an interesting match-up. I can't recall any times I've seen Iron Man face off against a speedster, but Tony Stark does tend to be quick-witted and innovative in his approach. I think it would be a tough battle, but Iron Man will manage to pull it off.

If your picks (and mine) are correct, all the Flash clones will be eliminated this round!

Gonna change to poll.
