NPC Showdown 2022: Oops, All PCs!

Updated: Mar 14

COME ON AND SLAM! AND WELCOME TO THE fourth annual NPC showdown.


Each year, Quest Friends! puts fan-favorite NPCs through the grueling gauntlet of twitter popularity polls. But this year we're doing something a little bit different. Thanks to the mid-season, we actually have TWENTY main characters that will compete for the coveted spot of "Best Mid-Season PC" instead!


Starting Wednesday, March 2nd at 9 AM CDT, we'll be putting up polls on our twitter account, where users can vote for the Mid-Season protagonist they like most! After each round of voting, we'll update this webpage with the results and our thoughts. The voting will be a lot faster this year, with the winner crowned on March 13th, the day before the Season 2 trailer launches!


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 a new generation of clout-chasing characters; many will lose, but one will win big!
