NPC Showdown!

Updated: Apr 2, 2019

It's March, which means that basketball fans all around the United States of America are assembling their brackets for the unfortunately-named "March Madness!" But why let them have all the fun!?


That's why we at Quest Friends are introducing the "Quest Friends NPC Showdown," where all of your favorite side characters battle for the coveted role of "fan favorite."


Starting Friday, March 1st at 5 PM CDT, we'll be putting up polls on our twitter account, where users can vote for the NPC they like most! After each round of voting, we'll update this webpage with the results and our "professional" commentary. For the qualifier round, two pairs of NPCs will compete each day, with 24 hours allowed for voting, but as time goes on, matches will get even longer, giving you time to fight for your fave!


But what's a tournament without good, old-fashioned custom brackets? While you're waiting for the qualifiers to complete, download our printable bracket, fill it out with your faves, then share the result to the world using the hashtag #NPCshowdown.


We'll see you at the polls!
