ZU’s intense Brawl tournament has been making steady progress towards the quarter-finals. Forty-six participants from all over the world joined the fight for posterity to fondly look back at the best ZU Brawler of all time.

The first round kicked off with an abundance of Toon Link representatives who now seem to have greatly reduced in number; however, a few have also held on to their butts towards the latest round! Read on to see how it all unraveled from the first round and onwards.

The winner’s bracket:Β  Single elimination

Round 1 | Early Start: Round 2 | Standby: Round 2

Currently leading the tournament is SmallVilleBoy from Mexico, having gotten ahead by facing Toon Fastblade (US) and successfully moving on to the semifinals where he awaits his next opponent. Meanwhile, American Brawler CatchΒ  is on standby as he awaits the outcome of RadeenChoudhury (Canada) vs. Khao (Chile). Remaining participants are currently preparing for the quarter-finals. These include:

Bobby Emerald (US), IGNIS (US), theunabletable (US), and zeruda~ (Ireland).


The consolation bracket:Β  Single elimination

Losers of the first and early second round were moved to a separate Consolation bracket to fight towards the consolation prize.

The tournament’s glacial pace hasn’t allowed many to record footage of their games, but Canyarion managed to give us a look at Round 1’s PerhapsMan (Canada) vs. Canyarion (Netherlands) set:

  • Fastblade

    • Canyarion

      Hey πŸ™ I thought I did pretty well, especially because I never faced a Diddy Kong before. Those bananas were terribly annoying. πŸ˜‰
      I messed up a few times, but it was quite close.

  • Badwolf16

    I thought I did really, really badly, but it turns out I played my first round in the winners bracket against the leading guy. By no means does that make me good, but it makes me feel a bit better.

  • GreatMidnaFan

    I hope Ike and Marth stay! Marth is an original character and Ike started to become very popular >.<

    • Zelda Paradox

      HOLD IT! I think you meant to say "I KNOW Ike and Marth stay!"… or something….

      • GreatMidnaFan
