Welcome to the Round 2 for Non-Productive.com‘s March Madness competition to determine the most powerful Disney character of all time!
UGH, last week’s First Round was especially brutal, with fan-favorites and beloved icons getting left in the dust, and over 12 games that ended in upsets or last minute routes! In real sports, this would be like if the Washington Generals suddenly started beating the Harlem Globetrotters in 50% of their games, and then went on to solve crimes out from under the gang from Scooby-Doo. SWEET CHRISTMAS.
And remember, your comments and justifications are just as important as your votes! Everyone at NonProis eagerly reading between the lines of each nomination, seed, and vote in the desperate attempt to make sense of just why someone considers one character more powerful than another, but of course you can clear it all up by volunteering to tell us your motivation in the box below each of the 16 games below!
For this year’s nerd-centric March Madness, we’re asking you, the geeks of the world, to decide once and for all which Disney character is the most powerful of them all! And “powerful” is big word - it can mean infinite cosmic abilities like Genie, a breakout star like Olaf, a legendary icon like Mickey, or a character that breaks molds to inspires us like Mulan.
Share and come back often to see how our competition progresses!
Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty
Elsa from Frozen
The Queen of Ice versus the Mistress of All Evil, this is a movie we’d pay to see!
Jafar from Aladdin
Scar from The Lion King
Be still our hearts! Two of our all-time favorite, sneaky, nasty villains - up against one another in a battle to the end?? Now THIS is a movie we’d pay to see!
Mushu from Mulan
Beast from Beauty and the Beast
Mushu came up like an underdog in both his film and this competition, but it’ll take more than luck to tame this Beast!
Ursula from The Little Mermaid
Rafiki from The Lion King
It’s Witch versus Shaman in Game 4 of our Disney Power March Madness!
Mulan from Mulan
Mufasa from The Lion King
Mulan saved her people from tyranny and oppression, but Mufasa was the greatest king the savanna ever had. No matter how it ends, this battle will be a tear-jerker!
Baymax and Hiro from Big Hero 6
Shere Khan from The Jungle Book and Talespin
We hope that Hiro has some sealant with him, because the big cat’s claws are out!
The Incredibles from The Incredibles
Merida from Brave
It’s a Pixar battle in Game 7, with everyone’s favorite nuclear family versus the princess that changed all the rules for her family, and redefined what it means to be powerful.
Oberon from Gargoyles
Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas
King of the Fairies versus the Pumpkin King of Halloweentown!
Hades from Hercules
Baloo from The Jungle Book and Talespin
Baloo’s underachieving nature allowed him to sneak by with a win, but Hades lurks at the end for all men (and we guess, most bears).
Donald Duck from Ducktails and Cartoon Shorts
Winnie the Pooh from The Hundred-Acre Wood
Two classic Disney characters, head-to-head, in Game 10 of our competition; but will Pooh-bear’s patience and bigheartedness win out against the ill-tempered Duck supreme?
Belle from Beauty and the Beast
Tiana from The Princess and the Frog
Tiana is an up-and-coming Disney princess that won an amazing upset last round, but will her fortune hold fast against a real member of royalty in the form of Belle?
WALL-E from WALL-E
Mickey Mouse from Fantasia and Cartoon Shorts
Mickey may have been the mouse that roared, but he only barely squeaked by in the last round - and WALL-E is riding high on a landslide victory!
Mary Poppins from Mary Poppins
Chernabog from Fantasia
Chernabog is terrifying, but even he’s just a little afraid of Mary.
Simba from The Lion King
Xanatos from Gargoyles
Holy crap, we wrote this very same fan-fic in the 90s!
Stitch from Lilo and Stitch
Rapunzel from Tangled
Will Stitch choke on the world’s biggest hairball??
Aladdin from Aladdin
Genie from Aladdin
Oh. Oh my. Oh dear.
