NPC Showdown 2021!

Updated: Mar 26

WHICH NPC WILL REIGN SUPREME THIS YEAR?


Over the past two years, in the spirit of March Madness, Quest Friends! has run an annual NPC Showdown via twitter polls. And with over three years' worth of characters, the competition is getting more and more intense!


Starting Sunday, 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 thoughts. 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!


This year's contestants are comprised of characters who have been in multiple arcs, new characters from One Neon Night and Xoc's Memory, and four contestants chosen by our Patreon subscribers. Elee's daughters have reigned champion for the past two years; can they keep this streak going?


While you're waiting for the qualifiers to begin, download our printable bracket, fill it out with your personal winners, and share the result to the world using the hashtag #NPCshowdown.


It's time for the final NPC showdown of this first campaign; who will be The Ninth World's ultimate champion!
