Resident Evil 4 could only take the RE franchise so far, it seemed. After a record-setting killing of Shadow Hearts and a win over fellow Capcom series Street Fighter, the only thing really left for RE was to job to Final Fantasy in the final match that would give off the illusion that FF was championship material.

RE did this quite well. After of course taking the board vote (which everything seems to do against FF, for some reason), RE began its expected decline. From there FF winning was a formality, but the one thing left of note would be to see whether or not Resident Evil would do better on FF than Mega Man, which would effectively put RE at #1 in terms of Capcom series.

Yeah, that lasted all of one hour. RE fell below 25.81% after one hour, and never saw the percentage again in the match. FF's latest blowout meant that the Final Four everyone saw coming was intact: four 1 > 2 matches, which I think had never happened before this contest.

Oddly enough, the Final Four would wind up being far less predictable than everyone had originally thought.
