|Ryu - 86.98%|
2002 was CATS's biggest year for hype, simply because there was thought to be a chance for him to actually win at the time. Anyone who has ever been on this board during a CATS match knows exactly what was going on, so all that was left to do was to actually hold the match.
And once the match began, the fact that most of CATS's fanbase was comprised of people who hadn't ever played his game showed. CATS was beaten into a pulp, allowing Ryu to become only the fourth character all contest (but third in the span of six matches) to break the 80% barrier. It was a complete beating in Ryu's favor, but c'est la vie. CATS is unique in that no matter how badly he performs, he'll likely always remain in the contest as the quinissential humor nomination.
