Zelda the Game[]

The Legend of Zelda was one of the most popular games in the history of the NES, so no one was surprised when it earned a 2 seed in the Game Contest of 2004. LoZ posted a number of dominating wins on its side of the division, including a very impressive drubbing of Tetris, but came up a little short in the division finals against an even bigger 8-bit icon, Super Mario Bros. 3. Some contend that Zelda 1's final ranking in the X-Stats being so "meh" is only because it was icon-SFFed by Mario 3, and that against nearly any other opponent the game would rank right up there with A Link to the Past. We'll find out in the next Game Contest.

Zelda the Series[]

After two straight years of Link finishing a convincing first place in the Summer Contests, no one (again) was surprised when Zelda earned the overall #1 in the 2006 Series Contest. Even though Zelda looked like the most dominating force we'd ever seen in a Contest setting throughout the entire tournament, including making even a formidable foe like Metal Gear look ridiculous, Board 8 refused to give up their pre-Contest mindset that Final Fantasy was going to be untouchable. That changed when Zelda defeated FF in a hard-fought battle for the Series Championship, in a matchup that smashed all previous records in becoming the popular poll in the site's history.
