The 'Shroom:Issue 103/Ultimate Character Tournament
Welcome to the Ultimate Character Tournament 2015!
Morton Koopa and Peach tied in last month's round of voting. The winner of that bracket was supposed to face off against Diddy Kong this month. We will resolve the issue by having a one week Sudden Death round between the two tied contenders, and then placing the winner of that battle against Diddy Kong. The voting for the Sudden Death winner and Diddy Kong will be extended by a week.

Back in September 2009, Ralphfan (talk) posted the idea of doing the Ultimate Character Tournament — a series of polls in a bracket-style "tournament" to determine the best character from several video game series. Originally, it was supposed to coincide with the anniversary festivities in 2010, but due to skepticism from the committee, the project was supported by The 'Shroom instead and became more closely affiliated with the publication. Planning meetings were held throughout the last few months of 2009, and the event ran from January 2010 through August 2010. It was considered one of the first major events that The 'Shroom had ever sponsored and was widely successful, pulling in hundreds of votes for each poll that was posted.
Five years later, The 'Shroom staff has decided to host a second Ultimate Character Tournament to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the event and the 100th edition of the newsletter! Several major changes have been made, though, in order to make it a truly ultimate character tournament:
