Nintendo and Square are far and away the two most popular companies on GameFAQs, so it should come as no surprise that Nintendo vs Square is the biggest company rivalry in Contest history.

In Character Battles, Nintendo currently holds a 40-29 advantage in all-time 1v1 matchups. Nintendo also won the Summer 2007 Contest 20 to 14, though the 4 way format and huge amounts of fodder make that result less reliable. Nintendo and Square tied the Summer 2008 Contest 26 to 26, and Nintendo won the 2009 Games Contest 26 to 23 and the Fall 2013 Contest 20-16.

In the 2004 Games Contest, Square beat Nintendo 6-3, and in the Series Contest, Square and Nintendo tied 1-1. Nintendo beat Square 3-0 in the Game of the Decade contest and 8-3 in the 2015 Games Contest.

Overall, counting all 1v1 contests, Nintendo leads Square 58-36. In the multi-way format, Nintendo leads 92-'79. The total record is Nintendo 139, Square 115.
