Who is Sackboy?[]

Sackboy is a customizable character from LittleBigPlanet. At default Sackboy is a stuffed sackbag with stitches along his head and a noticeable zipper on his chest. The player is able to add different types of skins and clothes to their own Sackboy (or Sackgirl). Sackboy is able to explore different worlds either designed by players or one of the default stages. Sackboy is able to jump, pick up things and slap other Sack People. Sackboy is weak against such elements as fire, spikes and electricity.

Contest History[]

Win-Loss Record: 1-3

Summer 2008 Contest - Division 5 - Fourth Group

Sackboy became the first character to reach a contest without being in a game first. LittleBigPlanet wasn't due to be released for another couple of months, but I guess hype was enough to get him in a contest. Apparently hype is able to get you 10% in a contest match against decent competition. Sure Sackboy lost to Wesker, but another way to look at it was Wesker almost lost to a character that didn't have a game at the time.

Winter 2010 Contest - Midgar Division - 6 Seed

  • Midgar Round 1 --- Defeated (11) Kratos Aurion, 38845 [54.58%] - 32320 [45.42%]
  • Midgar Round 2 --- Lost to (3) Leon Kennedy, 17998 [35.19%] - 33147 [64.81%]
  • Extrapolated Strength --- 91st Place [19.19%]

With actual games this year Sackboy was considered a long shot against Kratos Aurion. While Tales characters have never looked good Tales of Symphonia performed well in the games contest while everything LittleBigPlanet related flopped in a poll. Too bad people forgot that everything LittleBigPlanet related was also against something Metal Gear Solid 4 related thus making Sackboy an unknown going into the match. Sackboy was able to easily take the win though Kratos Aurion did make a few cuts during the Super Bowl, I guess the casuals like Sackboy more. Sackboy had little chance against Leon Kennedy and was able to seal its fate as high fodder/fodder line.

Summer 2013 Contest - Division 9 - 25 Seed

  • Division 9 Round 1 --- 3rd place, 2799 [11.24%] - (16) Zelda, 15353 [61.63%] - (3) John Marston, 6758 [27.13%]

The previous three years were not kind to Sackboy. In 2010 he was borderline fodder, but with his performance against Zelda he has become very weak fodder. I guess the fad that Sackboy was riding on died about as quickly as it came.
