Hello Ladies & Gents...

Welcome to the first battle in the Tokyo Ghoul Tournament!

New to this?:

What Is This?

This, my friends, is a straight up ripoff of my pal Cdiddyman911's fantastic "Tourney of Thrones". His tournament was such a cool idea and as most of you will know I'm a giant TG fanboy, so I had to give this a whirl.

The Tokyo Ghoul Tourney is a huge 64-man single elimination style tournament, where friend is pitted against friend, foe against foe, until only one stands.

How Long Will It Take?

The Tourney will consist of daily battles until the round is over. Once a battle has been added to the battles forum, I will wait one week before tallying up the votes. The winner moves on.

How Do I Vote?

I heavily encourage discussions about the battle as well as arguments, as that's the fun part, but ONLY POLL VOTES WILL COUNT. All you have to do is choose who you think will win, and that's it.

Some of the characters here are relatively short on feats, so feel free to use hype and statements to make your decisions if you wish.

Can I be Tagged?

If you want to be updated on these battles to help out, please let me know below or simply shoot me a pm asking to be added to the callouts! If you wish to be removed, do the same.

The "Spite" Dilemma

Unfortunately, I am afraid there will be matches where one person will handily defeat the other. I wish it weren't that way, but that is how it has to be realistically. If you see this happen, please still vote on who is the winner. It's best to get it out of the way and go on to bigger and closer battles

The "Been Done" Dilemma

There is also a very likely chance that a battle that shows up here has been done before on another thread or that has even taken place in-verse. This doesn't mean that you shouldn't vote. Much like Battle of The Week threads, it is different from the other ones, so don't stress about it!

Can I check the Standings?

Yes! If you ever wish to know what is going on, please go to The Tourney Bracket. I will be updating as it goes in other ways, but you can keep an eye on everything from there.

Where Is Arima?

You know, I thought about it, but what would be the point? He's out of everybody else league and any battle with him in would be a waste.

And so moving on to our very first battle... a fight between Q's.

In the red corner...

Kuki Urie

Squad Leader of the Q's and son to the famed Mikito Urie - an early favourite!

In the blue corner...

Saiko Yonebashi

Q-Squad's most explosive member and a genius in kagune manipulation - can she overcome the odds?

Urie handily, Saiko's kagune is dangerous, it can't be used for an extended period of time, and Urie is more than capable of using that to his advantage. If this was pre-timeskip I'd probably give it to Saiko since Urie was incredibly reckless and probably wouldn't realise even one hit from Saiko would devastate him.

While Morals Off does give Saiko a better chance, Urie still takes this. He's much more skilled and adept at using his kagune from what we've seen (and I don't mean a lack of skill from Saiko but just more emphasis and showings from Urie).

@vsw: Just to clarify bud, this isn’t a CaV, you can just vote right now using the buttons at the top of the OP. Will tag you for future battles in this tourney though. My bad if that’s already what you meant lol.

I think Urie holds the Stamina advantage, though he's much less versatile. I'd also give him the strength advantage and quite a bit more tactical than Urie
