    Gladius 2020 Anniversary Celebration!  Header-banner-black-1




    Introduction: Celebrating Gladius' three year anniversary we have decided to host a pageant as our event to highlight the site's rich history of nerve-racking moments, memorable memes, inspiring character design, and general appreciation of the community. If you have recently joined Gladius or have been a long-time member we thank you for choosing us to share great memories with or your dedication to the site, respectively. Most of us leading very busy lives, whether you're still in school or a functioning adult, make an effort to log onto our Discord or squeeze out a post shamelessly cutting into your usual bedtime. Whether your posting partner yo-yos back to you within an hour after your reply and starts annoying you for another post or you get flooded out of an ongoing conversation in Discord, always remember that your activity is the lifeblood of the site and its ongoing success. We will always appreciate anybody who chooses to spend their free time with us. Time is an invaluable resource we are all tied to and is something we can never replenish or stop. So being here with us and building a community many can call home is something we cannot thank enough.

    We are always thankful for your time on Gladius. If this is your second pageant, we welcome you back! If this is your first, take a look below to see how it all works out:

    Participation/Rewards: Participating in this event will result in the reward. This is a fun, community building event meant to not be competitive. So don't feel discouraged because you feel you may lack writing creativity or imagination. The majority of the reward is received through mere participation. Winners will receive a small experience bonus.  

    To participate in the event you must vote in each category. A template will be provided to submit your vote. Keep in mind that if you wish to receive a bigger prize you must fill out the voter template completely. For the MAXIMUM reward you must vote and submit yourself as a candidate.

    BONUS REWARDS

    1.) In addition to the rewards listed below, if you do two submissions for each category (remember: only one submission is required) and vote in each category then you will receive an extra 300 Spendable Experience. Once again, this 300 Experience is tacked onto the standard rewards listed below, meaning at most you can earn up to 450 Spendable Experience for just participating.
    2.) For each category you win in you will receive 25 Spendable Experience.
    3.) The 25 Spendable Experience bonus can only be won up to three times. Winning more than three submissions will pass the reward down to the next qualifying candidate.

    Submission Template:

    Code:

    [b]Character/Username:[/b] (The character you're submitting or your Discord name, if applicable.)
    [b]Submission:[/b] (What you're submitting, followed by a link to the topic/image, if applicable.)

    Voter Template:

    Code:

    [b]Candidate's Name:[/b] (Either Character or Discord username, if applicable.)
    [b]Detail:[/b] (Associated with the subject. This can be a quote they said, topic title, or character themselves.)
    [b]Reason:[/b] (Why did you choose this candidate? Effortless reasons will not be considered legitimate.)




    The Prizes



    You are only required to make one submission to qualify for maximum credit as a candidate, but you must vote on all subjects to receive maximum credit as a voter. There are a total of THREE different anniversary prizes, being a low value reward, mid value reward, and a high value reward.

    Instant Coffee Rations:

    Gladius 2020 Anniversary Celebration!  025

    A whole MRE is sometimes too much work.

    This is the minimal reward for participating. You achieve this by only doing submissions, but not voting. Or you don't submit and only partially fill out the voter template.

    Spendable Experience: 50

    A Cold One:

    Gladius 2020 Anniversary Celebration!  86fa27cdb684df97f3dfbdec72ca53ba

    Your effort is at least rewarded. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    You receive this reward by doing submissions and partially filling out the voter template, or by completely filling out the voter template, but doing no submissions.

    Ryo: 10,000
    Spendable Experience: 100

    Victory Cake:

    Gladius 2020 Anniversary Celebration!  Rsz_197a829dfa50aced26ea2ebb1907bd2f2

    Who knew cake was apart of your daily provisions? Today must mean something special!

    This is the best reward. You can achieve this by doing submissions (remember: only one is required) and completely filling out the voter template when voting.

    Ryo: 25,000
    Spendable Experience: 150

    Remember that the more you participate the funner it is for everyone!






    The Subjects


    Below will be all of the subjects for this year's pageant. In this topic you will make all submissions using the template. You are only allowed to make TWO submissions per subject, so choose wisely. After a week all submissions will be entered in and the voting can begin. Another week will ensure everybody has a fair chance of reading the submissions and taking them into consideration. Once the votes are tallied up, a first, second, and third place is decided by the number of votes gathered. You CAN vote for yourself. You may only vote once per subject.

    Honestly if we're going by riskiest thread I don't see how any other thread can even compete with the Eastern Gates. Everybody knows at this point that if you post there you'll risk losing at least a limb, no matter who you are or what class you are. Eastern gates dgaf.

Making a cold and calculated move that impressed me. I'm not sure this counts as "mean", but I'll nominate him either way.
    Damien Darhk wrote:"Damien you cannot be serious. There are innocence down there, your employees do their lives mean nothing to you?" "No, They don't. Kill them All, they are a dime a dozen. There are always more waiting." "You don't mean that." "Oh dear sister I do, they are going to die anyways. Why not let their deaths hold meaning?" "I won't let you do this," "You can't stop me, Saburo take her out of here now." "Yes sir, come along now" "I will Kill Them All if I have too."

    Submission: Not many people have the nerve to antagonize Nozomi, so I'll say that Ei's actions were fairly risky, while Nozomi's choice to stare directly into Ei's eyes as provocation was equally risky, and Kara interrupting Ei's claiming of Kazekage as well, and Shiro entering and being dumb, anything could have happened here.

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback Candidates:
    Character/Username: Rini Nakamura
    Submission: "Cripple? At least I have an excuse for losing in my final rounds match, what's yours, bitch?"

    This in response to Shimiko's:
    "What did you call me you cripple?!"

    After having called Shimiko a bitch.

    -
    Character/Username: Kimiko Uchiha
    Submission: "Oh, uh, yes! Of course! But you're taking my last name, I'm not giving mine up!"

    In response to Akihiro Uchiha proposing. The wittiness comes from them both already having the same last name, followed by an equally witty response from Akihiro

    "Well I think we'll have to negotiate that better... my Clan can be very picky with these things, you know? But somehow I think it'll turn out alright."

    Most Intense Fight Candidates:
    Character/Username: Kimiko vs Seid + Iwa and Kumo's forces
    Submission: The fight was rather pitched, with the Iwa Alliance having swept every single fight. Kimiko was racing against the clock to beat Seid and pulled a victory out of a sure defeat with quick thinking, strategy, and diplomacy in the heat of combat, as well as taking out a top tier threat.

    -
    Character/Username: Arisu and Kitsuki vs Hana and Chigetsu
    Submission: Taking place at the cursed Eastern Gates, Arisu and Kitsuki seek to deny Hana leave through the gates, while Chigetsu escalates with a V2 transformation. This fight contains 2 high level A classes, an S class Jinchuuriki, and an X class Kage.

    Character Subjects

    Most Developed Story Candidates:
    Character/Username: Nozomi Himitsu
    Submission: I'm a little biased on this, but Nozomi is one of the site's oldest characters. She has gone from an E class genin to one of the strongest characters on site. Everyone knows her name IC, and she's the leader of one of the most renowned "Terrorist" organizations. Making deals with Kage, killing international criminals, saving villages, Nozomi has had no small impact on the site, and has gone through a ton of character development.
    -
    Character/Username: Shimiko Chinoike
    Submission: For similar reasons to Nozomi, Shimiko is an incredibly old character on site. She's gone from a little brat who killed homeless people in secret, to going into a coma and being inches from death. After waking, she caught up to her team despite having lost a lot of time, and convinced the Raikage to legalize Jashinsm. No longer having to hide her religion, Shimiko became one of the most influential characters in Kumogakure. Through even a civil war, Shimiko has become a mother and is mellowing out, even separating slightly from the church she was so fanatically representing.


    Most Interesting Fighting Style Candidates:
    Character/Username: Kimiko Uchiha
    Submission: She actually uses traps and strategy, as well as a verbal negotiation fighting style.

    Most Fascinating Personality Candidates:

    -
    Character/Username: Rini

    Friendliest Character Candidates:
    Character/Username: Mitsukira Tatsudashi
    Submission: Even after being stabbed by Chen who was bloodlusted and prepared to kill her, she still apologized in her own head, blaming herself for his actions. She's too pure.
    -
    Character/Username: Okane
    Submission: Okane cares about money, but he also cares about getting people to trust in his work. He's willing to pay people the money to invest into himself just so that they both can make a profit, and he doesn't add in any hidden fees or problems. He's just out to make sure people get quality goods and he gets a ton of money. He even set up a neutral zone so shinobi could meet without worrying about death. Dude's a fairly friendly person.


    Meanest Character Candidates:
    Character/Username: Chen
    Submission: Chen's by far one of the rudest people I've seen on here. He was an outright bitch to Mitsu, and I frequently saw Sayuri comment on how mean Chen was when tagged for a response.
    -
    Character/Username: Ikomiki
    Submission: Ikomiki killed a paralyzed ally during the Chuunin Exams, when the exams were supposed to be no kill. Rather than helping him out and getting him medical aid, she intentionally stopped him from calling for help by smothering his face and halting any attempts to save himself.


    Best Couple Candidates:
    Character/Username: Kimiko and Akihiro Uchiha
    Submission: Uchiha who not only don't steal each other's eyes, but also end up married? When would you ever see that on an RP site? Kimiko is a staunch defender of Akihiro, and Akihiro is willing to go to extreme lengths for Akihiro. The two of them are pretty wholesome.
    -
    Character/Username: Arisu Otsutsuki and Zoe Zor-el
    Submission: An Otsutsuki relationship that may actually blossom? NANI?!?! While the two haven't officially done anything as of the posting of this, they've got an attraction to each other that can't be denied.


    Village Subjects

    Most Generous Kage:
    Character/Username: Ryuko
    Submission: Despite knowing it would lead to war, she sent Kumo troops to aid Iwa in their defense against Konoha in a bid for independence. Truly a paragon of generosity.
    Plus, despite the invalidity, she was prepared to give all of Kumo 1 million ryo each, so...
    -
    Character/Username: Nyguyen Uchiha
    Submission: He generously overlooked Yui's participation in the war due to Kimiko's expert negotiation skills. He didn't destroy Iwa for continuing a war of insubordination when he failed to uphold the previous two kage's decisions, which was valid considering how short their reigns had been.


    Most Ruthless Kage:
    Character/Username: Hana Kaguya
    Submission: Moonspire attack in retaliation. She didn't hesitate to murder civilians. She'll get the job done. Decided her short term was worth 7.2 million Ryo and was attempting to flee in the night with most of Kiri's Ryo, exclusives, and artifacts. She also never bothered to break up with Chigetsu, choosing to leave without so much as a goodbye. Woman is heartless.
    -
    Character/Username: Nyguyen Uchiha
    Submission: Started a war with Iwagakure to negotiate better terms, not knowing that Akari had released them with permission. Upon finding this out, however, he doubled down and continued his crusade. Truly a man who settles for no less than he is owed.


    Up-and-Coming Potential Kage:
    Character/Username: Arisu Otsutsuki
    Submission: She may never be the Mizukage, but she'd make a fairly decent one. She's fairly moral, and plenty of people simp for her. She's got the current Hokage sliding into her DM's, so the alliance would still be strong, and she's willing to protect her nation from enemies both foreign and domestic, as shown by her attempt to halt the resigned and banished Ex-Mizukage Hana Kaguya from fleeing the village.
    -
    Character/Username: Seid Otsutsuki
    Submission: Nariko was meant to be a temporary kage, but soon became a mainstay in Kumo. If her example is to be followed, the role of temporary kage may leave a more lasting impression in Kumogakure than Seid originally intended.

    -
    Character/Username: Temporary Raikage, Nariko
    Submission: Honestly, the Kage turn over rate is a massive joke. However, throughout such chaos, the one kage who has lasted the longest was the one who had become Kage with the intention of only filling the role temporarily.

    Character/Username: Ikomiki Ōtsutsuki
    Submission: Progressing from someone who operates on just base instincts and desires to slowly humanizing, while retaining her general mean and bitchy personality, has been a very interesting part of playing Ikomiki. I’m excited to see how continue to progress and develop her personality and story.

    Character/Username: Ashitaka Senju
    Submission: Seeing and hearing about his story and the things he’s gotten up to has made me wish that my characters could have met Ashitaka sooner, and perhaps under better circumstances. I’m exited to RP with him more in the future as well.

    Most Interesting Fighting Style Candidates:
    Character/Username: Shiro Suzuki
    Submission: Throwing frying pans as a part of a fighting style is pretty unique. I can’t say I’ve seen it anywhere else.

    Character/Username: Akihiro Uchiha
    Submission: Anything that uses teleportation is interesting to me, but Akihiro’s fighting style seems to be primarily verbal- With both Chika and Tatsu, he talks his opponents down and puts them into hopeless situations before striking rather than just using brute force.

    I'm oing to go out and say that this is 1) very biased and 2) taking into account that I had to vanish for 6 months for work so this list will be...different.

    General Subjects

    Submission: "Kensai-san, I think you might be poor because you smoke too much. Those things have to be expensive in a village who can't grow tobacco... But you can come live with me if you want to. I own an apartment of my own, you know? Not the nicest part of town sure, but there's plenty of robbers to kill... we really do have a problem with crime. But they're not so bad once you get to know them..."
    So many Shiro quotes I could have put here honestly...

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback Candidates:

    Most Developed Story Candidates:
    Character/Username: Kara Kazehana
    Submission: I think this is a pretty fair pick. I wanted to be biased and put Kensai here but I missed out on 6 months to keep pushing my story forward, and in that time Kara had a bunch of shit happen to her that changed her, so I can't argue it.

    Character/Username: Nozomi Himitsu
    Submission: If Chigetsu abandons Hana in the Eastern Gates, I'd give him this slot...but Nozomi explained it well and I have zero reason to argue it so I'll defer to her.

    Most Interesting Fighting Style Candidates:
    Character/Username: Shiro Suzuki
    Submission: Everyone is putting him for fighting with pans, but I'd argue that the way he used his puppet strings to use a Kusurigama was one of the more unique ways I've seen a character fight ever.

    Character/Username: Yasashi
    Submission: I had to pick a second one and I"m not going to lie, I had no idea...but I know what my plans for Yasashi are and it's gonna be really great, the best fighting style!

    Submission: Yep. This kid again. He's a complete shitposty idiot flowerchild and I love him.

    Character/Username: Kiyoko Ono
    Submission: Gonna put up a Kara character you wouldn't expect for this one. Kiyoko had to act as a literal diplomat for the Land of Iron when Okane wasn't able to for whatever reason and Kensai was in a coma. She is extremely awkward and bad with people, along with a bitter hatred for shinobi, and yet she was informed by the Shogun that she had to try to be nice and not kill them. It is always enjoyable watching her stumble her way through her interactions with shinobi, the not so thinly veiled threats while trying to be nice always exceptionally hilarious...and her literal interpritaitons of everything always make me chuckle, right down to talking to a tiger...

    Friendliest Character Candidates:
    Character/Username: Shiro Suzuki
    Submission: Kensai loves this kid. He would protect him to the end of the world from the taint of the shinobi. It's tough to think of him not being in this slot.

    Character/Username: Oda Hinode
    Submission: Tossed up on Putting Kensai here but ultimately there is a far nicer person in the Land of Iron and that is the kind and caring Oda Hinode. The two of them are pretty close, but the student in this case oversteps the master.

    Most Generous Kage:
    Character/Username: Ei Kanagawa
    Submission: Coming to Iron to build us a radio tower seems pretty generous when they don't technically need to do that. I appreciate it for sure, so will the children!

    Character/Username: Kensai Tanahashi/Okane
    Submission: I'm just throwing this out there, if the Shogun doesn't count then I'd conceed, but Kensai has put all of his money into the village of Tetsumura and its people. Kensai had personally bought equipment to help his people, personally put out his own money to pay them, and done so much more. Okane has been right there beside him the entire time, which is why I put them both here as one submission. The amount of money he has put into the village to ensure that it could grow is truly staggering. Kensai also works to keep good relations with everyone AND he has yet to have any shinobi executed for stepping into his land, even though that is definitly something that is supposed to be happening.

    Most Ruthless Kage:
    Character/Username: Hana Kaguya
    Submission: I think this one is kind of tough? Hana is here from stuff that doesn't really tie to her being a Kage, because she's actually a very good one. She cares about her village, but is clearly a ruthless character otherwise.

    Character/Username: Tatsu
    Submission: What a ridiculous expansion going against the wishes of the village and the world. The Cat Empire is dead and thank Jashin for that.

    Up-and-Coming Potential Kage:
    Character/Username: Sero
    Submission: #SeroForMizukage! I want to see it. I've seen him run a village on a site I ran for a very long time and from an IC standpoint, I don't believe I can think of anyone who would do a better job of creating a phenominal ambiance and pushing to drum up interest in his village. It might not happen, but I have high hopes.

    Character/Username: Ei Kanagawa
    Submission: New enough to put here I think. If Ei can get around the difficult political situation that the village of Suna exists in, it could be an interesting time for the village.

    Submission: "You all fail, you can leave now. Everyone else, go ahead and start the test. Turn it in by the end of the hour and leave. I hope everyone's learned something. Follow the rules of the mission. That's your job as a shinobi. Doesn't matter how easy the mission is. You never know who is watching, and you always have to gather information."

    I love everything about this quote. As I copy and paste the BBcode, I applaud the amount of effort that went into making this possible. I think as RPers who have done this activity for a long time, it can be a struggle to come up with new and creative ways to write posts. Every now and again someone strikes gold and I think it should be acknowledged when they do.

    Another thing I love about this post is the context. This past Chuunin Exams was the best we've ever had on the site and I think the written portion was a good chunk of why that was the case. You have a bunch of smart and competitive genin ready to do whatever it takes to make a name for themselves. Toshiyuki burning a precog to predict Rini's statement and throw shade on it is classic Chuunin Exams Arc material. Brownie points because Rini is considered one of the smartest characters on the site so reading her being taken down a peg was rather fun.


    Character/Username: Kitsuki
    Submission: "The people of this village deserve to have their dreams heard. I hope Hagoromo is listening because sometimes it feels like no one else is."

    I really like this quote because it turned out to be quite a bit of foreshadowing for the war to come. I feel like in the year preceding the War and during the comet, Kit like many others felt a sense of optimism. She felt that the best of shinobi-kind was yet to come and that global peace could be achieved. I like the quote because it encapsulates so much of who she is as a character and why the current arc is so difficult for her.

    Riskiest Thread

    Submission: Fire Is Gone

    Character/Username: Kitsuki/Kyoji/Arisu/Chigetsu/Hana
    Submission: Eastern Gates

    An intense battle between Kiri's strongest characters. I feel like fight represents the old guard vs the new. Given the high level characters in this thread and the global implications of the outcome, I'd say this is one of the riskiest threads ever.


    Wittiest Verbal Comeback

    Spoiler:

    Character/Username: Yoshitsune
    Submission: “You’re the sorriest genin I’ve ever seen in my life.”

    Yoshi gives Q a dose of his own medicine. I love how belated yet fitting this comeback is. It was in response to Q insulting Yoshi for no reason upon first meeting his partner...only to end up proving his own rank incompetence in battle.


    Character/Username: Rini
    Submission: "Cripple? At least I have an excuse for losing in my final rounds match, what's yours, bitch?"

    Despite being the recipient, I gotta say that's a pretty brutal burn. Hitting Shimiko with her worst insecurity right after losing her best friend was a bold play. Its something that can only be said by someone with the confidence that their near unlimited intelligence makes them too valuable to kill. A theory that will soon be put to the test.

    Most Intense Fight

    Spoiler:

    Character/Username: Ei/Kara/Nozomi
    Submission: Idle No More

    A surprisingly close match between Nozomi and Ei with Kara caught in the middle. What started out as a pretty standard Kage declaration thread turned into a short but intense skirmish. Ei pulled off a bit of an upset by catching Nozomi off guard and the stakes for such a match couldn't be higher.

      "What, you mean like puberty?" ~ Ashitaka Inuzuka
    • "I'm not a Kage! I-I'm a preschooler! Why won't mommy and daddy save me? Where am I? Why am I here!? I-I-I don't wanna die! Imma good girl! Mommy and daddy say so! Why won't anyone save me ... I'm not a bad girl ... I don't wanna die." ~ Tatsu Kotoshura

    • "No, my hat! I've been bamboozled" ~ Shiro Suzuki
    • "Now look upon and contemplate the sky. Because no ninja and especially no Hokage should die with their eyes facing the ground.

    • "Is there nothing you won't ruin, you vile woman?" ~ Shiro Suzuki

But they're not so bad once you get to know them..." ~ Shiro Suzuki
    • ”I want to record all the things that make Earth wonderful. Which is everything by the way. Except hair. Hair is fine and all, but it tastes terrible. Kind of like beer, only less wet.” ~ Zoe Zor-El

    • "You all fail, you can leave now. Everyone else, go ahead and start the test. Turn it in by the end of the hour and leave. I hope everyone's learned something. Follow the rules of the mission.

    • "Unless you're here to bring Ashitaka back to the waking world or to explain why you have a fucking Otsusuki of all things following you, then you can get the fuck out of here Uchiha. Your presence is not welcome right now, and whatever it is you plan on doing can be put on hold until the team meeting of Team Ten is completed. I will not repeat myself." ~ Chikamatsu Momo Hyuuga
    • “You may very well be surprised with how skilled I am at sticking things into men. We may well get to that later though if you like.” ~ Gyokusho Hyakkiako
    • "The village is like it is because you didn't do your job in the first place. And now you're trying to take away mine. Afraid?" ~ Shiro Suzuki
    • "No, you will not." ~ Akihiro Uchiha
    • ”Just because the ninja like to be sneaky and underhanded, doesn’t mean true warriors are the same way.” ~ Kensai Tanahashi
    • “You’re the sorriest genin I’ve ever seen in my life.” ~ Yoshitsune Sōjōbō
    • "You all fail, you can leave now. Everyone else, go ahead and start the test. Turn it in by the end of the hour and leave. I hope everyone's learned something. Follow the rules of the mission.

    Best Quote

    Candidate's Name: Shiro Suzuki
    Detail: "Kensai-san, I think you might be poor because you smoke too much. Those things have to be expensive in a village who can't grow tobacco... But you can come live with me if you want to. I own an apartment of my own, you know? Not the nicest part of town sure, but there's plenty of robbers to kill... we really do have a problem with crime. But they're not so bad once you get to know them..."
    Reason: I will never forget reading this. I sat in my chair laughing so hard, like most of my time interacting with Shiro, and I believe that he is absolutely hilarious and deserves this.

    Riskiest Thread

    Candidate's Name: Kitsuki, Kyoji, Hana, Chigetsu, Arisu
    Detail: Kiri Eastern Gates
    Reason: While there were ways that everyone could have gotten out of this unscathed, the egos of tthe characters, and the heated encounter ensured that that simply wasn't going to be the case. Two former Mizukage are dead because of this, and that is an impressive feat and reason to have this here all on its own.

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback

    Candidate's Name: Kensai Tanahashi
    Detail: ”Just because the ninja like to be sneaky and underhanded, doesn’t mean true warriors are the same way.”
    Reason: I'm on here 3 times, and I hate that, but straight up this is a perfect comeback. Azuma is a headstrong sneakthief definition of a Shinobi, and this was put to him in his attempt to bring the Samurai down. It takes a jab at Shinobi as a whole in true Kensai fashion and I believe it's perfect for those reasons.

    Most Intense Fight

    Candidate's Name: Kitsuki, Kyoji, Hana, Chigetsu, Arisu
    Detail: Kiri Eastern Gate
    Reason: I'm going to keep this here for the reasons I left in riskiest. Unfortunately the conclusing mostly came about because of absenses, but I think that the risk factor and the personalities and renown of all involved easily give it this spot.

    Most Developed Story

    Candidate's Name: Kara Darhk
    Detail: Kara Darhk?
    Reason: I'm going to start this off by saying that Kara is a bad person, but she almost wasn't. She began showing character growth when paired with KEnsai and Azuma, having two positive influences in her life that were trying to bring her towards being a better person. She ended up basically becoming the leader of the Stag Emporeum in place of Okane when he made his way to the Land of Iron, and from there her progression, and then regression continued.

    She would become one of the top crafters and business people in the world, eventually creating a power couple with Damian before her entire world came tumbling down around her. Her chances of truly being a good person were shattered with his death and the loss of her arm, and even now as a brooding alcoholic she plots her next moves carefully as she decends further into the darkness of villianry.

    Most Interesting Fighting Style

    Candidate's Name: Shiro Suzuki
    Detail: puppet free puppetry
    Reason: People throw around the fact that he uses pans in his fighting style, but the first time Kensai watched him fight he used his completely underdeveloped skills to prove himself to the surly shogun. He uses a Kusurigama (a very difficult weapon to use) with his puppet strings, also utalizing a spear in this way during the fight, and enlarging Kensai's arrows to take out siege weaponry. He is very surprisingly a tactical genius, as I personally believe all puppeteers need to be, and I look forward to seeing what he'll be able to do when he's stronger.

    Most Fascinating Personality

    Candidate's Name: Shiro Suzuki
    Detail: Shiro Suzuki
    Reason: There's so many things to put him in for...he is a forth wall breaking meme of a character who still manages to fit in wherever h e is and makes everything he does hilarious while never undermining the weight of the situations.

    Most Attractive Character

    Candidate's Name: Mitsuo Yuki
    Detail: FC Tsurumaru Kuninaga from Touken Ranbu
    Reason: I hope people will take a look at this character if they haven't, because the FC is gorgeous. A beautiful man who look as delicate as deadly, white hair and gold eyes compliment his traditional garb and general affinity for having cherry petals around him.

    Friendliest Character

    Candidate's Name: Oda Hinode
    Detail: Oda Hinode
    Reason: I honestly think that Oda is straight up one of the nicest people on site. He is always positive and seeks the best of every sittuation and in every person. He is willing to sacrifice his body in order to help those in need at any time, and everyone who has met him walks around thinking highly of him and of his village.

    Meanest Character

    Candidate's Name: Hana Kaguya
    Detail: Hana Kaguya
    Reason: Hana is oppressive and abusive. She is terrible to those who serve her, and in general is just a nasty person...or was.

    Best Couple

    Candidate's Name: Damien Darhk and Kara Darhk
    Detail: Damien Darhk and Kara Darhk
    Reason: It almost feels dirty picking this one because of where it ended up, but I think they had a fantastic relationship that is a great showing of what two influencial people are capable of when they come together and solidify their alliance through a relationship. Damien's death pushed Kara over the edge in her fall to darkness, but I think that is a testimate to the feelings they had.

    Most Generous Kage

    Candidate's Name: Kensai Tanahashi/Okane Tomi
    Detail: Tetsumura Shogun
    Reason: There's a reason I nominated these two together. Kensai and Okane are equals in the village in Kensai's eyes. Okane is constantly helping people get off their feet, generously giving money everywhere (though generally not without personal gain in mind) and Kensai has given his everything to his village and their people. He keeps nothing for himself and personally invests in his samurai by outfitting and training them. He has also thusfar not killed any Shinobi in his lands, and that by itself is a generous thing.

    Most Ruthless Kage

    Candidate's Name: Hana Kaguya
    Detail: Former Mizukage
    Reason: This could have gone to Kyoji as well for the same reasons. They are the reason that Kiri has its bad reputation and comquered with an iron fist, destroying everything in their paths in their persuit for more power. Add that to being oppresive in their own village, and you have a brutally ruthless Kage.

    Up and Coming Potential Kage

    Candidate's Name: Ei Kanagawa
    Detail: Kazekage
    Reason: Oh boy, poor Ei. So chances are this is never going to have a chance to come to fruition due to Konoha planning to march on Suna, but I have high hopes that Ei will get out of that situation and help restore the Sand village. She's got a mountain ahead of her, but I believe she can burn it down and rebuiild on its ashes.

    Best Discord Gladius Meme

    Candidate's Name: Brian
    Detail: Boofing Meth
    Reason: I'm still laughing reading this. I laugh every time I see it or hear it or even think of it. Isn't that what you want in a meme?

    General Subjects

    Best Quote Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Kensai Tanahashi
    Detail: “I bring him along because he’s a fantastic conversationalist, and it gets lonely in the desert...”
    Reason: I'm strongly biased towards Ashi's puberty comment, but this one barely manages to eke out a win in my book.

    Riskiest Thread Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: The Eastern Gates
    Detail: I don't even know what to say. The place is a madhouse. Kiri is sure living up to the nickname "The Bloody Mist", though probably not in the way that any of its residents intended.
    Reason: I really wanted to nominate "The Fire Is Gone", but only three people really had a chance of dying in that thread, so it doesn't even compare to the raw meme that is Kiri's Eastern Gates.

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Rini Nakamura
    Detail: "Cripple? At least I have an excuse for losing in my final rounds match, what's yours, bitch?"
    Reason: It takes some real spine to snap back at Shimiko Chinoike, and bonus points for exploiting that X-tier Intel to choose the exact words that would cut the deepest.

    Most Intense Fight Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: The Black Site
    Detail: The possible first open fight in the Shinobi World War Arc among Kimiko, Seid, Irui, and Ashitaka.
    Reason: In spite of the fact that fatalities were not possible in these fights, this one really set the stage for the intensity of all ToW battles to follow. I feel that it was about as hardcore as it could get without the possibility of character death being a factor.

    Character Subjects

    Most Developed Story Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Ashitaka Senju
    Detail: Ashi's journey from child prodigy to... well a lot of things including depression incarnate involved a lot of things happening in a short period of time.
    Reason: I know I'm biased here, but I really poured my heart and soul into this character. I didn't make any alts, so my focus has been entirely on his development.

    Most Interesting Fighting Style Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Seid Otsutsuki
    Detail: Now you're thinking with portals!
    Reason: The Otsutsuki Paths offer a lot of power, and for most people that tends to stifle creativity. But Seid's use of portals to serve several of their vast array of possible functions in combat is not something to be scoffed at.

    Most Fascinating Personality Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Tatsu Kotoshura
    Detail: What's in a face?
    Reason: This is um... not a compliment. From what little I've seen, Tatts' personalities are a cavalcade of caricatures in a can. And yet in spite of their bizarre and spastic nature, they somehow manage to be almost pitifully predictable. It is a curious sight to behold, even peripherally.

    Most Attractive Character Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Yenn Inazuma
    Detail: The raven-haired beauty who reaches for the title of "storm goddess".
    Reason: This was a really tough call, given that virtually every character on this site has a pretty FC. Consequently, I had to go with personality too. And I'm a real sucker for Yenn's type.

    Friendliest Character Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Okane Tomi
    Detail: The Grand Merchant Prince epitomizes the neutrality of international business at its finest.
    Reason: I would be voting for Ashitaka here if it was an option, considering how much trouble I go through to have him meet new people, but he's not. Also, I think that whether it's sincere or a clever marketing ploy, Okane is a generally pleasant person to be around.

    Meanest Character Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Chen Kimyonakama
    Detail: That one punk who gives goths a bad name.
    Reason: This choice was as hard as it was to decide who the most attractive character was, because well... there are a lot of serious jerks on here. Unfortunately, I'm not especially privy to the activities of the older ones, so I'm sticking with the devil I know.

    Best Couple Candidates:
    Candidate's Name: Tamwyn and Sayuri Yenn
    Detail: Kumo's resident power couple.
    Reason: I haven't been looking into ships a lot for personal reasons, but these two seem to sport the healthiest relationship a couple in the hellhole that is Kishin could conceivably have. It's actually unnatural.

    Village Subjects

    Most Generous Kage:
    Candidate's Name: Ryuko Shizu von Rose
    Detail: "Everyone, let's all go to the Moon!"
    Reason: While her means of pursuing profit was 4th-wall levels of illicit, unlike many other Kages she actually intended to share her gains with all of her subjects, which was kind of nice of her in its own twisted way.

    Most Ruthless Kage:
    Candidate's Name: Tattsu Kotoshura
    Detail: The... little... psycho.
    Reason: I know that Nyg's been nominated due to the incident with Iwagakure, but personally I think that pales by far in comparison to the antics of Tattsu. Reading through the list of crimes they'd committed was like going down a checklist of every vile thing a person could do as though being a monstrous, tyrannical dictator was a working goal. And worse, they played the victim to the end, trying to act as though their actions were somehow heroic and self-sacrificing. Honestly disgusting just to think about.

    Up-and-Coming Potential Kage:
    Candidate's Name: Tengoku Shinku
    Detail: The Wolfman Cometh
    Reason: As far as I know, he's the only Kage candidate who actually went around campaigning for popular opinion as though public elections were a thing instead of fighting over the hat like... well virtually everyone else who wanted the position.

    Discord Subjects

    Best Discord Gladius Meme:
    Candidate's Name: Nyg
    Detail: ”It wasn’t supposed to turn out like this. Things got out of hand fast.”
    Reason: This one will stand the test of time. It will be remembered when the internet is forgotten. No context is required.

    Best Quote

    Candidate's Name: Ashitaka
    Detail: "What, you mean like puberty?"
    Reason: The dude always gets memed on for his characters age in discord and I think it's fun and amusing when someone embraces the meme about their character. This interaction between the spirit of the sage and Ashitaka within his mind seemed like a nod to that meme about Ashitaka being eleven and I found it absolutely hilarious.


    Riskiest Thread

    Candidate's Name: Chikamatsu Momo Hyuuga
    Detail: The Fire is Gone
    Reason: This Genin/Chuunin (I can't remember which) looking at Akihiro, Nyguyen, and Satomi and telling them off? Admitting he yoinked knowledge of the exclusives with his byakugan? Admitting he led a Kumo nin to Nyguyen during the Battle of Meijing? All to three high profile Uchiha who have run the village for years at this point? How is this not a brass balls roll of the dice?

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback

    Candidate's Name: Rini
    Detail: "Cripple? At least I have an excuse for losing in my final rounds match, what's yours, bitch?"
    Reason: The savagery in this statement is a living, breathing, thing. Rini is a girl in a wheelchair, she can't move fast, she can't lift a puppy if someone decides to seriously weigh the doge. Yet this woman looked at a chick who effectively just became highest ranking woman in the Land of Lightning? One who has murdered before (Most often with a sacrificial knife in hand) and not only brought up what is probably the biggest reason Shimiko hates Nozomi (Cause Noz kicked her ass), but called a bitch, with an audience? Yeah, this gets my vote <3

    Most Intense Fight

    Candidate's Name: Arisu/Chi/Hana/Kit/Kyoji
    Detail: Kirigakure's Eastern Gates Fight
    Reason: It's not just an intense fight, but also intense development. Kitsuki see's Hana's true colours (From her perspective of course), Chi see's the woman who's given him lov... affection and loya...a warm bed I guess? Point is, he see's her being attacked and goes on a rampage. A rampaging Jinchuriki is already a reason to label a fight as intense, but toss in X rank speed exploding arrows, flying kaguya, a surprise Hoshigaki, and an Otsutsuki with a chain fetish and we have ourselves my personal vote for most intense fight.

    Most Developed Story

    Candidate's Name: Ashitaka
    Detail: Ashitaka
    Reason: From growing up being raised by wolves to becoming a shinobi and now to failure after failure, after failure. Ashitaka still tires. He's like the little train that could. Both of his teammates were severely injured in Battle of Meijing, one of whom was rendered scarred and blind, the other paralyzed until surgery could be done. (What monster did such things? *looks innnocent*). Ashitaka is a kid who to me seems like someone who's just trying to plug the holes in the pipe as more appear. With one hand tied behind his back and his feet handcuffed together. But he keeps trying and one day, provided he doesn't die, that streak will turn around.

    Most Interesting Fighting Style

    Candidate's Name: Shiro
    Detail: Shiro
    Reason: I chose Shiro because while there's like four other people on that list using puppetry, I think, I'm not double checking, his way of getting by without puppets and such is chockful of hilarity simply at what various object or creature he'll have gotten his hand on that day. Is it a cigarette? A scorpion? Maybe a Frying Pan? Who knows? I find the seeming randomness hilarious.

    Most Fascinating Personality

    Candidate's Name: Zoe
    Detail: Alien flower child who took the bige twins pigtails
    Reason: Zoe is a fucking treasure. She's this centuries old alien archivist/lorekeeper and knows so so much, but at the same has experienced absolutely none of it. Half of her interactions with things include tasting something for the first time like flowers, hair, blood, and other such things. Just because she's trying to experience everything she possibly can. She's a full grown adult, fully developed mind, but with a childlike sense of wonder. I love it.

    Most Attractive Character

    Candidate's Name: Arisu
    Detail: Arisu
    Reason: Arisu is an Otsutsuki and not only that but looks like a canon one with a horn and everything. That sticking to how the clan really looks aspect plays a part in my vote because attractive doesn't just have to mean physically so. Arisu herself is a stunning character with pale skin and exotic features that would draw the eye in a pleasant way but what draws me to voting for her is that same careful consideration for the Otsutsuki look canonically and Arisu is confident, which is always an attractive aspect. Girls got my vote <3

    Friendliest Character

    Candidate's Name: Mitsukira
    Detail: Mitsukire
    Reason: I think 'friendly' and I think of Mitsu. If Zoe is the literal flower child then Mitsu is the metaphorical one. This woman who would walk up to her worst enemy. Someone who wants to kill her beyond a shadow of a doubt, and try to give them a hug. She's so friendly she's actually naïve, it gets no friendly than that.

    Meanest Character

    Candidate's Name: Chen
    Detail: Chen
    Reason: Left his old village cause it could do nothing for him, joined up with Masaru cause Masaru could give him strength, is a rude, arrogant little ass, an opportunistic little snake, tried to kill a civilian during the evacuation, and stabbed Mitsukira and tried to take over her body. Yeah, meanest character has gotta go to Chen. Especially since that's not even everything he's done I'm sure. It's just what I remember. Besides, look at him. It's like looking at Draco Malfoy if he had a 'Nightmode' option.

    Best Couple

    Candidate's Name: Tamwyn and Yenn.
    Detail: Tamwyn and Yenn.
    Reason: I love this story, I love writing it, I love reading it. It started with a mission to take out a pesky missing nin, during which Tamwyn body blocked not only the lethal impact for Yenn, but also a stone spike that stabbed him through the chest. Yenn found them shelter, started a fire, and cauterized the wound and they shared their pasts. and it culminated in a night filled with love and passion, and that's just the first topic. Now they're expecting and are soon to be husband and wife. They constantly try to make the other happy. Tamwyn by making their home and specifically their bedroom, is fit for the two of them, especially Yenn, who loves the outdoors. They love each other deliriously and there's nothing they wouldn't do for each other. It's got my vote <3.

    Most Generous Kage

    Candidate's Name: Haku
    Detail: Haku
    Reason: This was honestly a hard decision between Haku and Ryuko but I ended up picking Haku because A. They are actually around to enjoy winning if they do, and B. Because I feel that freeing multiple minor nations from their oppressors still wins over opening the nearly bottomless (at the time) coffers of Kumogakure for the entirety of their village. Haku didn't do much during his time, but what he did would've had a significant impact on thousands of peoples lives and honestly it set the stage for what's going on now.

    Most Ruthless Kage

    Candidate's Name: Hana
    Detail: Hana
    Reason: From seducing and playing with the feelings of a pink haired boy to try to make them confident to assaulting a town in another nation and killing multiple civilians in the process. Hana was one ruthless bitch. She gave no fucks about consequences and oft times didn't consider them before acting. What? What do you mean that wasn't the intent behind the first part?

    Up-and-Coming Potential Kage

    Candidate's Name: Tengoku
    Detail: Tengoku
    Reason: I really wanna see the Paladin become Hokage, break free the chains of the Uchiha Oppression, smote them upon the ground mighty wolf. Seriously though, Tengoku started as a wall flower with no confidence and ended up leading a pack of wolves all his own (Loved doing that mission) and growing into his own personal confidence and ability. He's broken free of the reliance on his sister and has become his own..wolfman? He's got my vote for most up and coming potential kage. Go Team Jac-I mean Tengoku!

    Best Gladius Discord Meme

    Candidate's Name: Moons Meme Plan
    Detail: Moon's Meme Plan
    Reason: I love this one because I somehow still remember talking about the plan itself with Brian in a voice chat at like 10 o'clock at night or something. I was half asleep, laying in bed with my headset wire stretching to my bed and just making up this ludicrous plan for us to make two civilians with master craftsman. Using one to make an X rank Rocket with their engineering, another to build an X tier Moon base. We both use our X tier Armorcrafting to make a spacesuit, then one uses their X tier weaponcrafting to make a tungsten rod dropper while the other makes the rod itself. Then fire upon those pesky shinobi villages with impunity. It was great and I remember laughing while half dozing while trying to solve the problem of 'We only have one fucking rod'. It's got my vote not just because it's funny, but because it was fun as hell to make the original plan.

    Character/Username: Chen/Nyg
    Submission: Chen is the meanest character. Rude, obnoxiously self centered. He flamethrowered Oda and was more worried about his sensei being angry than having just attempted to murder his ally.

    Best Quote
    Candidate's Name: Ashitaka
    Detail: "Boy... come. Sit! Have some tea. You are fast approaching a very important turning point in your life. One which will determine who you are for the entire remainder of your time on this Earth."

    "What, you mean like puberty?"
    Reason: Naruto is, at its core, a battle shounen with lots of serious moments, but also plenty of random humor and embracing the fact that this seems like it could be a scene straight from the show is great. I love this quote, as it shows that Ashitaka is just a kid, even if sometimes he's put in situations that no kid should be in. It really highlights his naivety.

    -
    Riskiest Thread
    Candidate's Name: Hana, Kyoji, Chigetsu, Arisu, Kitsuki
    Detail: Kirigakure Eastern Gates, Kiri Civil War
    Reason: When looking over all the other threads options, this one just stuck out to me. Everyone in this thread is above A class, and we're all the top tier shinobi in Kirigakure. No matter which way you slice it, the village lost some powerful shinobi, and had every opportunity to lose 5 of their strongest right in the middle of a World War. The others are somewhat risky to certain individuals, or are just incredibly one sided with no risk on the attacking side, but none so much to the entire village like this. Even Thunderstruck, as nothing of consequence realistically would have happened, since someone would have to even get into the village in the first place and then fight the entire Kumo army.

    -
    Wittiest Verbal Comeback
    Candidate's Name: Rini
    Detail: "Cripple? At least I have an excuse for losing in my final rounds match, what's yours, bitch?"
    Reason: She'd just called Shimiko a bitch after Shimiko lost her best friend. When given the opportunity to correct that statement, Rini didn't just double down, she took it up a whole notch, hitting a sore spot with Shimiko and calling her a bitch once again.

    -
    Most Intense Fight
    Candidate's Name: Hana, Kyoji, Chigetsu, Arisu, Kitsuki
    Detail: Kirigakure's Eastern Gates, Kiri Civil War
    Reason: This thread had a fast paced action sequence that burned out incredibly fast, but the fight was a high level shinobi slug fest. X Class Hana Kaguya being stopped by A Class Kitsuki was already ballsy enough, but A class Arisu joined in on the arrest attempt only for S class Chigetsu to run in. Entities and restricteds are getting thrown around and activated, and then the absolute Chad S class Kyoji pulls up to throw his own hat in the ring on the S and X class side. From start to finish, the thread was incredible.

    -
    Most Developed Story
    Candidate's Name: Nozomi
    Detail: Nozomi Himitsu: From Kiri kunoichi to most feared and respected Missing-nin in the world
    Reason: Obviously I'm biased, but Nozomi's been around since almost day one. I've been writing her story since the very beginning, and she could have gone almost anywhere, or died multiple times, but somehow she's still kicking. I know her story the best out of all the ones listed, as her writer, but there is something to be said about her story arc and where its landed her. People either love her or hate her, but everyone knows who she is.

    -
    Most Interesting Fighting Style
    Candidate's Name: Kimiko Uchiha
    Detail: Kimiko Uchiha: Unpredictable and Thoughtful
    Reason: I rarely use the same strategy with Kimiko twice. She's a genius fighter who thinks quickly and on her feet. She lays out traps if she has the time, uses positioning and stalling tactics, uses people's corpses and bodies as shields and chakra batteries, and isn't afraid to bargain or attempt to lower her opponent's guards with intentionally deceitful tactics. This has led to her pulling out a victory when all seemed hopeless.

    -
    Most Fascinating Personality
    Candidate's Name: Zoe Zor-El
    Detail: Zoe the Otsutsuki
    Reason: Throwing aside the reference to Superman, Zoe takes the "I'm an alien" thing to the next level. Girl thought it was perfectly okay for a person to fall from the sky and splatter across the ground, even picking up and keeping a piece of Braid with blood chunks in it.

    -
    Most Attractive Character
    Candidate's Name: Arisu
    Detail: Arisu, check my profile pic
    Reason: First, check my profile pic.
    She's super attractive, that's half the reason I changed to this FC. Not only that, but she quintessentially embraces the idea of a canon Otsutsuki. She looks like she could fit right into the setting, without being out of place in the slightest.

    -
    Friendliest Character
    Candidate's Name: Zoe Zor-El
    Detail: Zoe the Otsutsuki
    Reason: There's a lot of child-like wonder and innocence about her. It'd be off putting to see her be mean in all honesty. She's very chipper and happy to meet new people.

    -
    Meanest Character
    Candidate's Name: Chen
    Detail: Chen the Otsutsuki
    Reason: Chen is a bully and might be pure evil. If Zoe is the embodiment of niceness, Chen is the embodiment of mean. He's cruel for no reason.

    -
    Best Couple
    Candidate's Name: Kimiko Uchiha and Akihiro Uchiha
    Detail: Kimi-hiro
    Reason: They're honestly a nice slow burn relationship. The two recently got engaged, and it's nice to see that they have each other's backs. Neither of them are using each other for MS or EMS, and they genuinely care about each other. That and Kimiko adds a bit of fun and mischief to Akihiro's life, reducing the seriousness he displays a lot. You don't often see high level Uchiha's being friends, let alone marrying each other.

    -
    Most Generous Kage
    Candidate's Name: Haku Masanori
    Detail: Haku, Best Hokage
    Reason: Everyone's always going for personal gain when they take the Kage position. While Nariko might have been my first pick as I'm generally biased in that regard, you can't say that Haku wasn't a generous person. He was Kage for a quick minute, and one of his only actions as the leader of the EXPANSIVE empire that Konoha had grown into was to reverse Neko-Kage's orders, dismantle the Empire, and relinquish control over every minor nation AND Iwa all in one go. There was no selfish intent behind his actions.

    -
    Most Ruthless Kage
    Candidate's Name: Nyguyen Uchiha
    Detail: Nyguyen, the Unyielding
    Reason: 2 Kage down the line from Haku, Nyguyen wouldn't let that generous dumbass' decision stand. Willing to start a war for the sake of pride in the Uchiha name, Nyguyen threw away a lot for pride. Luckily it paid off, but in doing so, several of his students were injured, and one even betrayed the nation. His response to that betrayal? Summary Execution. Nyguyen is a complex man, but he doesn't fold on his principles at the end of the day, and that's all you can ask for in a Ruthless Leader.

    -
    Up and Coming Kage
    Candidate's Name: Tengoku Shinku
    Detail: Wolfboi
    Reason: He's one of those characters that is just lowkey powerful. He could legitimately put an end to the Uchiha Kage tradition, and he's very capable of matching even some of the best in the village blow for blow. Seeing as very few people want the Kage spot in Konoha, and it may be low key cursed, Tengoku has my support if he becomes the next Hokage (although I may request a fight first to prove his mettle.)

    -
    Best Quote
    Candidate's Name: Nyg
    Detail: ”It wasn’t supposed to turn out like this. Things got out of hand fast.”
    Reason: I use this in almost any scenario that gets derailed, which is a lot of them. Everyone knows it, it's definitely a solid pick.

    Candidate's Name: Ashitaka Inuzuka
    Detail: Puberty
    Reason: The poor kid's been growing up so fast, yet she still worries about normal teen thing

    Riskiest Thread
    Candidate's Name: Chikamatsu Hyuga
    Detail: The Fire is Gone
    Reason: There were many things I had planned for in that thread. Getting three uchiha to want Chika dead was not a part of the plan.

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback
    Candidate's Name: Akihiro Uchiha
    Detail: No, you will not.
    Reason: I mean, he was right. Chika in fact, did not.

    Most Intense Fight
    Candidate's Name: Hana/Kit/Arisu/Chi/Kyoji
    Detail: Kiri Eastern Gates part 2; Electric Boogaloo
    Reason: The emotional turmoil, the betrayals, and of course, the amount of pauses called in to settle the fight.

    Most Developed Story
    Candidate's Name: Ashitaka Inuzuka
    Detail: The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions
    Reason: Honestly, the Kid's gone through a lot, and yet somehow he keeps moving along. I'm curious to see how much more he can take.

    Most Interesting Fighting Style
    Candidate's Name: Shiro Suzuki
    Detail: *insert spiderman pointing meme*
    Reason: Tempting as it was to self indulge and choose Chika, this man is more spider man then Chika is, and Chika was made to feel like spiderman.

    Most Fascinating Personality
    Candidate's Name: Tatsu Kotoshura
    Detail: Meow
    Reason: When a character is so infamous that they're still talked about as much as they are here, let alone what they did? Yeah, that's pretty facinating.

    Most Attractive Character
    Candidate's Name: Fujikawa Setsuko
    Detail: Nobbu
    Reason: What can I say? The Devil King of the Sixth Heaven is a quality design.

    Friendliest Character
    Candidate's Name: Mitsukira Tetsudashi
    Detail: stone's ball of sunshine
    Reason: while things have been rough for her lately, her optimism is a welcome addition to Iwa, and with Chen there it needs it.

    Meanist Character
    Candidate's Name: Natsuru Senou
    Detail: A Raisin in the Sun
    Reason: Chen may be a psycho, but his actions strike me more as evil then mean. Natsuru was just hostile to people.

    Best Couple
    Candidate's Name: Tamwyn and Yenn Inazuma
    Detail: Shocking, right?
    Reason: Out of the ones on that list, it feels the most wholesome and natural to me.

    Most Generous Kage
    Candidate's Name: Ryuko Shizu von Rose
    Detail: Dragon Tortoise summoner
    Reason: While it didn't quite work out, her attempts of trying to make 6 towns, several clan districts, and the 1 mil ryo per person was something truly wonderful to behold.

    Most Ruthless Kage
    Candidate's Name: Nyguyen Uchiha
    Detail: Uchihanet Historian
    Reason: Ignoring the actions of the 2 kage before him to try and impress Nidaime-kun? even if it means pushing his failures onto others? Yeah that'd qualify him.

    Up-and-Coming Potential Kage
    Candidate's Name: Tengoku Shinku
    Detail: 10x the goku, 10x the sayin'
    Reason: Tengoku has that vibe about him, that rare gene that says 'If this man wants to sell me lint, I will buy that lint'. And he sold me on him becoming the next hokage.

    Best Discord Gladius Meme
    Candidate's Name:
    Detail: Moon Meme Plan
    Reason: While things getting out of hands fast is a solid one, being there listening to Tam and Brain try to figure out how to drop rods from god and recover them, let alone having them move the moon to fire where they wanted to, was a beautiful treat.

    Best Quote:

    Candidate's Name: Kensai Tanahashi
    Detail: “I bring him along because he’s a fantastic conversationalist, and it gets lonely in the desert...”
    Reason: This quote feels like it has the most character behind it and incorporates a great amount of characterization in a semi-humurous line. Subtext > everything

    Riskiest Thread:
    Candidate's Name: Kiri's Eastern Gates
    Detail: https://gladiusnarutorp.forumotion.com/t533-eastern-gate
    Reason: I take riskiest as in, the thread I would feel the most risk posting in (not risque?). And frankly, with the reputation the Eastern Gates has on its own, this is an easy winner.

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback:
    Candidate's Name: Gyokusho Hyakkiako
    Detail: “You may very well be surprised with how skilled I am at sticking things into men. We may well get to that later though if you like.”
    Reason: This was _wittiest_ comeback, not meanest, not just a comeback. I feel like of all the choices, this has the most direct wit involved with it

    Most Intense Fight:
    Candidate's Name: Akihiro/Nozomi
    Detail: https://gladiusnarutorp.forumotion.com/t533p100-eastern-gate#20385
    Reason: Tailed Beasts, Amaterasu, this fights got the whole, end all be all of techniques, vibe going on...

    Most Developed Story:
    Candidate's Name: Mitsukira Tatsudashi
    Detail: Mitsukira Tatsudashi
    Reason: Partially in that I don't know the full story of every character listed but Mitsukira is one that I do know, and the writer has a tendency to build well fleshed out backstories with hooks leading into the future, Mitsukira being one that I think has some forward momentum. Which is the goal of developing a character's story right?

    Most Interesting Fighting Style:
    Candidate's Name: Kimiko Uchiha
    Detail: Kimiko Uchiha
    Reason: Gotta admit, I'm a bit of a sucker for the Uchiha fighting via their visual prowess. Very often outranks other fighting styles for me (if only the were a genjutsu focused Uchiha lol)

    Most Fascinating Personality:
    Candidate's Name: Zoe Zor-El
    Detail: Zoe Zor-El
    Reason: Fascinating, right. Well, for someone from space who's clueless on the... whole. world. This kinda takes the cake with ease, which she possibly would mistake with an idea to actually steal a cake?

    Most Attractive Character:
    Candidate's Name: Mitsuo Yuki
    Detail: Mitsuo Yuki
    Reason: Very much a good faceclaim amongst a group that's really good. Thing with being able to curate profiles and avatars is that there isn't any bad choices however the down to earth majesty that Mitsuo's character has is really cool.


    Friendliest Character:
    Candidate's Name: Mitsukira Tetsudashi
    Detail: Mitsukira Tetsudashi
    Reason: Personal experience ICly? She helped Katsumi find his way back home instead of questioning or trying to fight him and helped the other plethora of Iwa genin make their way into the village! This was a friendly and nice thing

    Meanest Character:
    Candidate's Name: Chen Kimyōnakama
    Detail: Chen Kimyōnakama
    Reason: Meanest seems rough but he seems the most... intense character? His interruption on Mitsukira because he didn't find her worthy was a major --- TERRIBLE THING TO DO? Anyways, that kinda harsh rationalism he seems to present while having an Anthony Hopkins lite face claim get him my vote (I don't think he's mean but just for the vote D:)

    Best Couple:
    Candidate's Name: Tamwyn and Yenn Inazuma
    Detail: Tamwyn and Yenn Inazuma
    Reason: I pick this one because Yenn > Sayuri? And also, the puns and situational humor that these two incorporate in their threads is so painfully horrible that I can't help but vote for their characters.

    Most Generous Kage:
    Candidate's Name: Nyguyen Uchiha
    Detail: Nyguyen Uchiha
    Reason: Reading the thread involving the death/soon to be death of a student of his and the emotion/pain written into the character at decisions like that show that he has a pretty deep heart. I don't have a ton of experience or all encompassing knowledge of all the Kage on site, but that was pretty notable in terms of generosity in a rather, what-would-be cruel universe

    Most Ruthless Kage:
    Candidate's Name: Masaru Tatsudashi
    Detail: Masaru Tatsudashi
    Reason: Maybe a presumptuous reason but feeling the need to strike fear into an internal enemy by hanging limbs and bodies up around your village is intense. Show no mercy and strength Kage for sure, I could see him being the type in a battle to finish everything rather than forgive an enemies transgressions without hesitation or too much concern

    Up and Coming Potential Kage:
    Candidate's Name: Tengoku Shinku
    Detail: Tengoku Shinku
    Reason: How could I not vote for Maigo's new teacher? In any case, he's incredibly kind and generous in his time and for others. It also seems that he's incredibly skilled and powerful in both his physical abilities but his techniques. Would very much embody the Will of Fire and be a good Hokage as it were

    Best Discord Gladius Meme:
    Candidate's Name: Nyg
    Detail: ”It wasn’t supposed to turn out like this. Things got out of hand fast.”
    Reason: I mean, this seems so versatile to not only site IC but anything OOC too. Truly a meme to be repeated.

    Best Quote
    Candidate's Name: Seigi Douchiwa
    Detail: “I figured you could use a hand.”
    Reason: This one holds a special place in my heart, I laughed so hard when I first read it. Seigi was the very first person to make a missing arm/hand joke to Kara. Which he said just after healing the arm injury. Woman just lost her arm and was told she potentially lost Damien, and there’s good guy Seigi with the hand jokes. It was perfectly timed, and ironically enough, made Kara like him more for it.

    Riskiest Thread
    Candidate's Name: Tamwyn/Sayuri
    Detail: How To Train Your Yandere [M]
    Reason: So I realize that this was partially nominated as a meme, however there was and still is very real risk involved. Yes there was blood and gore etc. but the true risk was actually political. A Kiri-nin and a Kumo-nin having to cooperate during the height of tensions during the war, and despite the intensity of the things that occurred there, they had to find a way to cooperate and not cause an international incident. Realistically if the full dealings of that mission were disclosed to the general public there would be an international incident. What started as a simple ‘kill the bandits’ mission, evolved (devolved?) into the stepping stones for what should prove to be an interesting facet and totally not evil part of at least Kirigakure’s future.

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback
    Candidate's Name: Gyokusho Hyakkiako
    Detail: “You may very well be surprised with how skilled I am at sticking things into men. We may well get to that later though if you like.”
    Reason: This was a really clever comeback, I liked how witty it was and also surprisingly classy and disarming. And it was done during a Workers Union negotiation. I thought it really exemplified Gyokusho as a character; quick witted and charming [?] and willing to get things done while ensuring that it is still enjoyable and interesting. At least for him.

    Most Intense Fight
    Candidate's Name: Mitsu/Chen
    Detail: The Tsuchifight (Songs of the Future)
    Reason: Yes, I know. I voted for myself again. This fight was truly intense though. The build up to this clash was phenomenal, and the fact that it was two relatively underpowered shinobi going at it with all the fire and passion of a 9 part movie series made it all the better. They both believed so strongly in their side that they were willing to physically fight over it. It took not one, but two high ranking shinobi to break it up and fortunately a quick stab to the gut.

    Most Developed Story
    Candidate's Name: Shimiko Chinoike
    Detail: The Honey Badger
    Reason: From bloodthirsty, wide eyed Genin, to bloodthirsty Jashinist zealot, to bloodthirsty jaded ANBU Captain. This woman has been on a hell of a rollercoaster emotionally, and pretty much the only thing that has stayed constant was her thirst for blood. To be fair, she is a vampire essentially. The other thing that has been a constant is her deep and unshakeable belief that her family is worth more than anything. That belief has led to fighting and deaths, to intense training sessions filled with tears. She now has a daughter that she loves and protects fiercely and still manages to maintain her spot as ‘top shinobi in Kumo’.  

    Most Interesting Fighting Style
    Candidate's Name: Chikamatsu Momo Hyuuga
    Detail: Takes ‘puppet armor’ to a whole new level
    Reason: This freaking guy. He genuinely embodies what I think of when I think of puppetry. He even goes so far as to appear to be a puppet. And for the most part does nothing to dissuade people from the notion that he is the puppet that he’s inside. And frankly, with the mouth on him, he needs two bodies. Rest in peace little guy, would have loved to have met you at some point.

    Most Fascinating Personality
    Candidate's Name: Sero Jaakuna
    Detail: The Abomination and leader of the Nightmare Brigade
    Reason: Sero was merely a victim of unfortunate circumstance upon his birth. Reviled by his parents and brutally injured as a newborn he spent his first twenty years forgotten and friendless in the Kirigakure Hospital. He was still cared for of course, but as minimally as could be gotten away with due to his fear inducing aura, that he was just as unfortunately born with. He had no loving family, no friends or even a kind nurse to teach him empathy or proper social skills. By the time he met anyone that actually wanted to spend time with him, it was no surprise that interactions were odd and intense. He tries so hard to be just, and to dispense justice fairly. He never hurts innocents, and is always fair and even tempered. His bitterness for the clans that threw him away runs deep, but he is dedicated to his idea of righting the wrongs in the world, by Kirigakure’s laws.

    Most Attractive Character
    Candidate's Name: Bayushi 'Raijin' Sojima
    Detail: FC - Emiya Alter
    Reason: In a sea of beautiful people, this face claim really stands out to me. I think it really encapsulates the badassery and turmoil of Raijin. There is something about the look of it that speaks of danger and ‘not quite stable but still really attractive’.

    Friendliest Character
    Candidate's Name: Oda Hinode
    Detail: The friendliest Samurai in the Land of Iron
    Reason: Seriously. He’s the friendliest. Have you met him? There is no one that has actually met him that didn’t like him. No one. Chen doesn’t count Besides going out of his way to help literally anyone he comes across, he never has an unkind word to say about anyone. It’s uncanny that a man that has been through so much hell is able to be that kind and supportive. He even got Kiyoko to not just want to murder every ninja she sees.

    Meanest Character
    Candidate's Name: Chen Kimyōnakama
    Detail: The goth kid with only three modes: anger, detachment and amused malice.  
    Reason: This was not a hard decision for me, what was difficult was coming up with exactly why he was the meanest. If you asked Mitsukira she’d say that it was because of his age, or because he clearly had some things happen to him in the past that he needed to work through. Both of which may be actually true, but the fact remains that at every turn Chen is cruel. He sees kindness, empathy, compassion and joy as symptoms of the plague of weakness that is humanity. And it’s not enough for him to simply find these traits distasteful and ignore them, he actively seeks to destroy hope and happiness and replace it with cold strength and ruthlessness. He punched a guy over a disagreement over a bag of flour and was willing to kill an old man who didn’t want to leave his family home. The only times Mitsukira has seen him smile was when he has just said or done something cruel to her. Oh and he stabbed Mitsu.  

    Best Couple
    Candidate's Name: Tamwyn/Yenn
    Detail: Thunder and Lightning
    Reason: The stories of my characters and their usually failed relationships are many, and I’m sure most people know them. This relationship though always gives me the warm fuzzies. It shows what I think the ideal relationship should be; two people madly in love, who respect each other, defend each other and treat each other as equals. There is no toxicity in the relationship, just wholesome love and support. They both go out of their way to encourage and build up the other, despite their dark pasts and various traumas. Despite the odds, they found their soulmates in each other, they have twins on the way and are now engaged.

    Most Generous Kage
    Candidate's Name: Okane Tomi/Kensai Tanahashi
    Detail: The Grand Merchant and the Iron Shotgun
    Reason: Honestly this has to be a duo. These two have sacrificed so much to put Tetsumura and the Land of Iron back on the map. A LOT of money and time have gone into making Tetsumura what it is, especially considering what it was before they arrived. A ransacked pile of rocks with only an outpost and a bunch of real suspicious survivors of said ransacking.  

    Most Ruthless Kage
    Candidate's Name: Hana Kaguya
    Detail: The Burger Queen
    Reason: Absolutely ruthless, if you consider what the term actually means. In all her actions I saw a distinct lack of empathy and compassion. Sure she tried to ‘help’ by running away from Kirigakure, the lie she told herself was that it was for the good of the people. She knew it was a lie as soon as she said it, people can’t defend themselves without resources and she took every resource she could when she tried to bail to avoid the consequences of her equally ruthless massacre in Moonspire. The only reason she returned what had been stolen by force from Iron was because Kumo threatened her, and even that was just a ruse to put her in position to destroy a civilian town, yet again. Her reaction to Akihiro’s arrival was cavalier, even though at the time she knew full well that she was off to murder thousands of innocent people. To say nothing of the one person she absolutely should never have treated so abusively; Chigetsu. She left him in a land that for all she knew was filled with people that hated him and would kill him the first chance they got. And when push came to shove and her crimes and sins finally caught up with her, she tried to run away, with Kirigakure’s money, exclusives and artifacts. If that doesn’t sum up ‘having or showing no pity for others’ then I don’t know what does.  

    Up-And-Coming Potential Kage
    Candidate's Name: Ashitaka Inuzuka Senju
    Detail: Konoha’s Sapling
    Reason: This kid is surprisingly strong. He’s been put through the ringer more times than most people twice his age, and still he comes out of it level headed enough to, you know, keep his head during certain hospital themed outings. He’s a bit too young to be Kage now, but give it a few years and he’ll be a contender for sure.

    Best Discord Gladius Meme
    Candidate's Name: Aragun (Andalusa), Gunli (Mort), Legunlas (Kara), Samwise Gunlee (Ashitaka), Rifles of Rohan (Xur), Gunladriel (Noz), Witch-king Angun (Gyo), Morgunth (Brian)
    Detail: Fellowship of the Gun
    Reason: I very nearly died laughing at this one, anyone in VC with me that night can attest to that. Three very tired night-owls somehow got on a kick about Lord of the Rings and everything just devolved from there. Andy, Mort and I renamed ourselves and there were even profile pic changes. Very quietly more people joined in and that just made it better. I think the absolute best part of this was that so many people joined in. Loaded with hilarity this one.

    Best Quote
    Candidate's Name: Seigi Douchiwa
    Detail: “I figured you could use a hand.”
    Reason: There was a reason I nominated this one. Just the context surrounding the whole situation, with Kara losing here hand lands this quote as my favourite.

    Riskiest Thread
    Candidate's Name: Kirigakure’s Eastern Gates - Hana/Kit/Arisu/Chi/Kyoji
    Detail: https://gladiusnarutorp.forumotion.com/t533-eastern-gate
    Reason: Where to even start with this one... Everyone has some firepower that can be used as it features some of the best from Kiri. Just from the start, it was looking like Kiri would lose someone strong. The reputation the gate got from just this conflict alone makes it my top pick.

    Wittiest Verbal Comeback
    Candidate's Name: Kimiko Uchiha
    Detail: "Oh, uh, yes! Of course! But you're taking my last name, I'm not giving mine up!"
    Reason: This one got a laugh out of me. Two Uchiha's that are in a relationship, talking about their relationship, and last names. Just the simplicity of it all was great.

    Most Intense Fight
    Candidate's Name: Kirigakure’s Eastern Gates - Hana/Kit/Arisu/Chi/Kyoji
    Detail: https://gladiusnarutorp.forumotion.com/t533-eastern-gate
    Reason: Well, the gates thread is back once more for another vote. Much like I previously stated, this was some of Kiri's powerhouses going at it and who knew who would end up biting the dust when all was said and done.

    Most Developed Story
    Candidate's Name: Kara Darhk
    Detail: The One Armed... two arms now? Woman
    Reason: I'd like to say, that I don't know too much about too many characters, but Kara is one of the few I know more details about. From the origins of being a child to doctors, then to a person that loses both her husband and then an arm, to manufacturing an arm for herself to be reattached. For a civilian character, Kara certainly has an intriguing story thus far.

    Most Interesting Fighting Style
    Candidate's Name: Seid Otsutsuki
    Detail: Portal 3 When?
    Reason:  Now, I'll preface this by saying I'm not too familiar with a lot of people's fighting styles, but I have learned of a few. Now, while power is great and all compared to the utility and just the vast amounts of outrageous things one could potentially do with portals, who would want power? There's just so many things one could possibly do, that I can't not vote for this.

    Most Fascinating Personality
    Candidate's Name: Zoe Zor-El
    Detail: Child of Light
    Reason: For an alien in the Naruto world, I would not expect anything less from one of Kara's characters. With an odd fascination for eating weird things (seashells and hair) to asking the oddest of questions that really don't need any answers, complimented with a complete disregard for a character's personal space, Zoe is in one word... odd. Plus, interviews are fun. Who doesn't enjoy a good interview?

    Most Attractive Character
    Candidate's Name: Mōtimā ‘Mort’ Midori-Okō Kurama
    Detail: Face Claim is Hajime Saito from Hakuouki
    Reason: I'd like to start out by saying I once used this as a FC a long, long time ago, so a win for Mort is a win for me. Aside from that, I just love this FC as there is a plethora of art for the character and a lot of it is great (I know, I've browsed it all once before).

    Friendliest Character
    Candidate's Name: Mitsukira Tatsudashi
    Detail: Is there such a thing as too friendly?
    Reason:  Aside from trying to be friends with just about everyone (even when they don't want to), Mitsukira is just a character that goes out of her way to help just about anyone. Given everything going on around her like her husband being in a coma, Chen stabbing her, she still puts a smile on her face and helps out others.

    Meanest Character
    Candidate's Name: Chen Kimyōnakama
    Detail: Chen, who hurt you?  
    Reason: No, seriously, who hurt you Chen? I don't know too much about Chen, but my introduction to him was in Songs of the Future. Chen is just outright cruel and has no remorse whatsoever. Also, he's Draco Malfoy and I can't unsee it.

    Best Couple
    Candidate's Name: Tamwyn/Yenn
    Detail: Cause Kara and Tamwyn pair up all the characters!
    Reason: This is one of the few relationships on Gladius that I found that has been developed thoroughly. It's just two people, trying to be together, while still being shinobi and having to deal with that side of their lives. Oh, and they're pregnant. So that's a thing.

    Most Generous Kage
    Candidate's Name: Kensai Tanahashi
    Detail: The Iron Shogun
    Reason: The bit I do know about Kensai is that he's all for neutrality and avoiding the conflicts of the other villages. Neutrality in a world of war and chaos is something I do love. Kensai gives to his village and is trying to make it a great place to be. I don't know too much about Okane, who have him listed with Kensai, so I cannot comment on that half.

    Most Ruthless Kage
    Candidate's Name: Hana Kaguya
    Detail: The... dead... Mizukage
    Reason: Being oppressive in one's own village is one thing, then as the leader of said trying to up and leave in the middle of the night? Ruling over a village with an iron fist and then just dropping it all to let the village fend for itself without a word is just an odd combination.

    Up-And-Coming Potential Kage
    Candidate's Name: Ei Kanagawa
    Detail: The Current Kazekage
    Reason: While they are the current Kazekage, Ei still puts forth a lot of effort for a village with a minimal PC population. Suna has a great leader in their hands, now all that remains is the rest falling into place for the village. Hopefully, one day, Suna can be a real village too.

    Best Discord Gladius Meme
    Candidate's Name: Nyg
    Detail: ”It wasn’t supposed to turn out like this. Things got out of hand fast.”
    Reason: This meme can be applied to almost any situation, from a simple conversation that turns, to just about any thread as well. The versatility of this is pure genius. Thank you Nyg.
