Welcome… to Fall Brawl!
Just in time for Halloween, for the fifth year, the Fall Brawl Character Contest is back. 2019 saw Midna take home the top prize. 2020 saw Skull Kid squeak out a thrilling last minute victory. 2021 had Sheik dominating the field. 2022 saw the charismatic enigma Ghirahim take home the title. This year, the field is wide open and a NEW Champion will be crowned. The premise is simple: 64 characters enter, and in a spin on a regular NCAA-style tournament, these characters compete in matches throughout the bracket until only one remains! This is strictly a popularity contest, so vote for your favorite!
Tears of the Kingdom is out and its impact will felt all over the bracket, as the field is crammed with new contenders and old favorites who may have gotten a “Tears Boost”, as I’m dubbing it! Is it finally time for some of our competitors who have gotten so close before, or will we be crowning our first Tears of the Kingdom Champion? Let’s find out!

PREDICT THE BRACKET CONTEST RETURNS!
Do you think YOU know who the most popular character from our field this year is going to be? PROVE IT! You have from now until the contest begins to predict MATCH BY MATCH who is going to win the tournament. For each correct prediction in round one, you’ll net yourself 1 point. In round two, the right winner will bag you 2 points, and so on: round three gets you 3 points, the Elite 8 gets you 4 points, the Final Four nabs you 5, and if you predict the winner of Fall Brawl 3, you get 6 points! Whoever ends up with the most points will not only be crowned the WINNER of Fall Brawl 5, but win a prize! First place will win ANY PIECE OF ZELDA DUNGEON MERCH they choose! We have an incredible variety of Zelda and Zelda Dungeon Team inspired shirts, so the stakes couldn’t be higher!
Make sure you’re heading here to this link to enter! You have until the contest starts on October 22nd to enter! Prove that when it comes to predicting who is the most popular Zelda character among the Zelda Dungeon faithful, you are all elite!
After 10 days, thousands of votes, and a climactic final showdown on Hallows’ Eve, we are pleased to crown this years winner of Fall Brawl…
Congratulations to Mipha, the Zora Champion who outlasted the Tears of the Kingdom rush to defeat Urbosa in the finals! Thank you to everyone who participated, and we’ll be contacting the winner of the Predictions Contest soon. See you next year!
