Sephiroth - 77.02%
(12,911 brackets)

Everyone already knew that Sephiroth was going to kill Crash in this match, and trying to explain why in depth is pointless. Most, if not all platformers not named Mario or Sonic have next to no popularity on GameFAQs, even back in 2002. When watching this match, one could easily get the seedings backwards. Remember, Crash was the 2 seed, not Sephiroth. Another thing that gets me is the low prediction percentage. How anyone could fathom Ulala, Crash Bandicoot, or Gabe Logan having a chance at taking down the main villain from this site's most popular game is about as perplexing as it gets. I can understand some people being odd, but almost 25% of brackets?

The only thing left to do after this match was to wait for the epic Megaroth duel. Through two rounds, there was absolutely no indication whatsoever of how that match would go, and everyone knew it. All we could do was watch and wait.
