20 votes today. Surprisingly, I didn't end up needing to call a tiebreaker, but it came close.

Crash Man unleashed a barrage of bombs unlike any other, but no matter what, Knight Man's shield would not buckle (Knight Man 13-7).
Charge Man had a good run, but Shadow Man proved to be too much for him, and he was finally derailed (Shadow Man 11-9).
Turbo Man veered off-road to ravage the woods with smoke and fire, to which Wood Man succumbed in the process (Turbo Man 13-7).
Enker had hoped to make mutton chops out of Sheep Man, but his barrier spear proved to be an excellent lightning rod (Sheep Man 11-9).
Guts Man and Concrete Man had themselves a good old-fashioned slobberknocker, in which Guts Man won a hard-earned victory (Guts Man 11-9).

As if his last match wasn't shocking enough, Flame Man's campaign was snuffed out when Jupiter's thunder rolled overhead (Jupiter 11-9).
Shade Man's cold-bloodedness allowed him to weather Tundra Man's storm and finally close the curtains on his show (Shade Man 12-8).
Quick Man may be fast, but he'd have to literally be faster than light to have escaped Solar Man's radiance (Solar Man 13-7).
Magic Man released a flock of seagulls from his hat, doing unspeakable things to Dive Man as they flew overhead (Magic Man 13-7).

Crash Man, Charge Man, Wood Man, Enker, Concrete Man, Flame Man, Tundra Man, Quick Man, and Dive Man have been eliminated!

Lots of big names taken out of the game today. Things are getting a lot harder, for sure.

23 votes! This update took a little longer due to some weirdness with both existing and potential ties, but I ultimately found a solution.

In the upper pool...

Raging tempests Air Man and Tundra Man collided. Ultimately, Tundra Man couldn't weather the storm (Air Man 13-10).
In a maze-navigating competition, Pharaoh Man's methods were outmatched when Punk simply smashed right through the walls (Punk 13-10).
Snubbing Flame Man's crude, inefficient use of oil, Elec Man showed no hesitation and struck him down (Elec Man 14-9).
Shadow Man was quickly outmatched by his opponents' brute strength, and Knight Man fell to Nitro Man not long after (Nitro Man* 12, Knight Man 12, Shadow Man 10.5).

* Though Nitro Man and Knight Man tied in number of votes, Nitro Man outranked Knight Man 12 times out of 23, giving him the win by a hair's width.

In the lower pool...

Splash Woman and Turbo Man competed in a triathlon, which Splash Woman was forced to forfeit due to her inability to ride a bicycle (Turbo Man 14-9).
Frost Man send a large iceberg Dive Man's way, but it was picked up by his sonar and shattered by an array of Dive Missiles (Dive Man 12-11).
Ballade was too quick for Saturn to defend himself against, and found himself at the mercy of a Ballade Cracker barrage (Ballade 18-5).
Sword Man's blade and Buster Rod G's staff were both outmatched by Blizzard Man's humble... ski poles? (Blizzard Man 13.5, Sword Man 11, Buster Rod G 10).

Splash Woman, Frost Man, Saturn, Sword Man, and Buster Rod G have been eliminated!

That weirdness definitely isn't how I wanted to handle it, but I'm glad a solution presented itself anyway. Moving on...

Lower Pool
Round 3 (Major) -- Group A

Crash Man vs. Knight Man

Turbo Man vs. Wood Man

21 votes today. The update was a bit later than I wanted, but it's here all the same.

In the upper pool...

Thanks to his Rebound Striker, Strike Man was well insulated and protected against Fuse Man's electricity (Strike Man 13-8).
A pair of Gemini Men went on the attack, but Hard Man, with his two (2) hands, KO'd the both of them at once (Hard Man 13-8).
Fire Man's burning barrage served only to empower Napalm Man's incendiary explosives, spelling his downfall (Napalm Man 14-7).
Cards, confetti, live birds... Dust Man gathered it all up and sent it right back at Magic Man (disclaimer: no birds were harmed) (Dust Man 14-7).

In the lower pool...

Blade Man came at Charge Man with all of his might, but Charge Man would not be halted by paltry swords (Charge Man 12-9).
Crash Bomber actually healed Heat Man fully, so Crash Man kept firing until his opponent's health bar exploded instead (Crash Man 12-9).
Centaur Man and Hyper Storm H engaged in a footrace, which Hyper Storm H won handily due to his powerful charge (Hyper Storm H 11-10).
Doing battle in the clouds, Tengu Man failed to locate Sheep Man, and dropped like a rock when Thunder Wool struck (Sheep Man 12-9).

Blade Man, Heat Man, Centaur Man, and Tengu Man have been eliminated!

Last batch of the minor phase. Remember, 3-way matchups call for a favorite-to-least ranking, rather than traditional voting!

23 votes today! I goofed in the counting process (twice!) and decided I probably shouldn't be counting votes from a mobile device anymore. Oops.

In the upper pool...

Concrete Man put up a rock-solid defense, which Blast Man handily demolished along with his opponent (Blast Man 12-11).
Winds whipped and thunder rolled as Jupiter and Tornado Man clashed, until Jupiter was blown away (Tornado Man 13-10).
Losing was not an attractive prospect for Magnet Man, but Snake Man managed to catch him by surprise anyway (Snake Man 13-10).
In a battle of cosmic proportions, Galaxy Man proved to Solar Man that black holes can swallow even entire stars (Galaxy Man 16-7).
Gravity Man weighed down Enker's barrier spear and rendered it immovable, disarming his opponent for an easy win (Gravity Man 14-9).

In the lower pool...

Quick Man was just barely fast enough to pull Grenade Man's pin right out of him and cause him to self-detonate (Quick Man 12-11).
Acid Man waiting in hiding beneath the water, where Shade Man taught him that fluids carry sound much more readily (Shade Man 13-10.)
Wood Man refused to allow Impact Man to demolish the woodland he flourished in, and stubbornly took root (Wood Man 15-8).
Burner Man and Skull Man fought a hellish, infernal battle that left Skull Man little more than a pile of ash (Burner Man 14-9).
Guts Man and Torch Man had themselves an old-fashioned fistfight that left Torch Man feeling really the burn (Guts Man 12-11).

Grenade Man, Acid Man, Impact Man, Skull Man, and Torch Man have been eliminated!

Onto the next group!

Welcome back, folks! Voting will now continue with Round 3!

Once again, things should start to pick up in pace. In this case, Round 3 in its entirety should only take about 5 updates. Without further ado:

Upper Pool
Round 3 -- Group A

Concrete Man vs. Blast Man
Jupiter vs. Tornado Man
Snake Man vs. Magnet Man
Solar Man vs. Galaxy Man
Gravity Man vs. Enker

Lower Pool
Round 3 (Minor) -- Group A

Quick Man vs. Grenade Man
Acid Man vs. Shade Man
Wood Man vs. Impact Man
Burner Man vs. Skull Man
Guts Man vs. Torch Man

My vote:

Blast Man
Tornado Man
Magnet Man
Galaxy Man
Enker

Quick Man
Acid Man
Impact Man
Skull Man
Guts Man

Worry not. Their actual, "official" colors haven't changed since we made the banner (which we should probably update sometime).

If you want the actual translations, I have them as well:
Code: [Select]
Sonic Man -- Translation "192:192=105:105", "198:198=118:118"
Volt Man -- Translation "192:192=94:94", "198:198=162:162"
Dyna Man -- Translation "192:192=87:87", "198:198=207:207"
Knife Man -- Translation "192:192=41:41", "198:198=38:38"
Braze Man -- Translation "192:192=94:94", "198:198=227:227"
Bit Man -- Translation "192:192=215:215", "198:198=166:166"
Shark Man -- Translation "192:192=205:205", "198:198=77:77"
Buoy Man -- Translation "192:192=218:218", "198:198=60:60"
Petrol Man -- Translation "192:192=87:87", "198:198=195:195"

Here's a fun bit of trivia, too. Putting aside the literal years of grief I gave the team over Shark Man's current colors (I advocated to make him gray, but was in the vast minority), you'll notice that Buoy Man is colored a bit strangely--purple instead of blue. This was for a couple of reasons, including helping him stand out against the other blue Robot Masters, but the foremost reason was to give a small nod to Robot Masters like Napalm Man and Crystal Man, whose artwork depict them as one color but whose sprites depict them as another. I guess you could call it a roundabout sort of authenticity.

22
I'm extraordinarily late, but I see now some folks were asking about a weakness chain, and I can't remember if it's been posted here. Still, now that the weapons are out and folks can see just what they do, this is probably the best opportunity to share it.

Sonic Man > Dyna Man > Bit Man > Knife Man > Volt Man > Shark Man > Buoy Man > Braze Man > Petrol Man > Sonic Man

Sludge Burst gums up Sonic Man's roller skates.
Sonic Pulse disarms Dyna Man's explosives using vibrations.
Dynamite Cluster utterly annihilates Bit Man's drilling equipment.
Drill Pike pierces Knife Man's resilient, bulletproof armor.
Knife Spread shorts out Volt Man's circuits, and ravages his huge arms.
Plasma Cutter electrocutes the aquatic Shark Man.
Shark Attack makes a meal out free-floating Buoy Man, and pops his inflatables.
Bubble Bath douses Braze Man's flames.
Blow Torch ignites the combustible fuel in Petrol Man's body.

Trillster deserves some serious kudos for helping us out in the last leg of development. I'd probably argue that we wouldn't have finished anytime soon had he not offered his expertise.

I'm super happy to have been a part of this, even if my various contributions aren't quite as significant as others. I hope everyone enjoys what we've put together!

19 votes today. Once again, many thanks to all that participated!

Commando Man fought with all of his might, but his prodigious strength was outmatched by Centaur Man's raw horsepower (Centaur Man 10-9).
Seems like Wood Man is partly evergreen, since he managed to withstand Chill Man's endless winter and emerge the winner (Wood Man 14-5).
Splash Woman's piercing Laser Trident managed to rip through even Cold Man's impregnable Ice Wall and strike true (Splash Woman 10-9).
Metal Man threw blade after blade, hoping to make himself a banana split, but all were deflected by Buster Rod G's trusty staff (Buster Rod G 10-9).

As Guts Man discovered when facing Bubble Man, hurling large boulders at one's enemies is just as effective underwater (Guts Man 10-9).
Sheep Man's affinity for cyberspace makes him no stranger to overclocking, evident by how handily he defeated Time Man (Sheep Man 13-6).
Needle Man's pointed remarks were quite ineffective against Acid Man, whose toxic personality meant they fell on deaf ears (Acid Man 12-7).
Saturn's Black Hole showed no restraint, swallowing up denizens of the sea and sky, Neptune and Gyro Man, with ease (Saturn 11.5, Neptune 9, Gyro Man 8).

Commando Man, Chill Man, Cold Man, Metal Man, Bubble Man, Time Man, Needle Man, Neptune, and Gyro Man have been eliminated!

We've now reached the halfway point of the tournament. This round, consisting of 110 participants and multiple phases, was by far the longest round of the tournament. Now that we're over this hurdle, things will really pick up in pace. 54 of the initial 110 Robot Masters now remain, so expect shorter rounds and more decisive matchups in the future.

That said, I can see voter turnout is beginning to wane, and I myself am feeling just a smidge burned out after this long round. With that in mind, I think it would be in everyone's best interest if we took a short break. Voting will resume on Saturday, January 16th with Round 3!

Thanks to everyone for playing up to this point. We'll be back at it soon!

21 votes today, which was admittedly more than I expected.

Crystal Man peered into the future to predict the match's outcome, but saw only only his own demise at the hands of Skull Man (Skull Man 13-8).
Frost Man and Block Man--neither particularly bright--just sort of hurled rocks at each other until Block Man finally fell (Frost Man 13-8).
Pirate Man and Shade Man went trick-or-treating. At the end of the night, Shade Man had earned far more candy than his rival (Shade Man 13-8).
Astro Man tried to deceive Grenade Man with an array of Copy Vision holograms, but Grenade Man just decided to blast everything (Grenade Man 12-9).
Top Man went for an instant K.O. with a Top Spin, but Hyper Storm H endured with his second health bar and won by attrition (Hyper Storm H 12-9).

Spring Man wasn't able to jump out of his opponent's range, since Crash Man decided to bring the roof down on both of them (Crash Man 16-5).
Wave Man tried to douse the wildfires Burner Man had started, but his opponent wasn't having any of it, and burned him up too (Burner Man 14-7).
Pump Man's Water Shield was no match for Blade Man, who severed the pipeline and cut off his opponent's access to the water supply (Blade Man 12-9).
Torch Man matched martial prowess with Yamato Man in an honorable duel. Though he put up a good fight, Yamato Man eventually conceded (Torch Man 12-9).

Crystal Man, Block Man, Pirate Man, Astro Man, Top Man, Spring Man, Wave Man, Pump Man, and Yamato Man have been eliminated!

Here's the last batch of this phase before the remaining Robot Masters move on to Round 3!

Lower Pool
Round 2 (Major) -- Group E

Centaur Man vs. Commando Man
Chill Man vs. Wood Man
Splash Woman vs. Cold Man
Metal Man vs. Buster Rod G

Round 2 (Major) -- Group F

Bubble Man vs. Guts Man
Time Man vs. Sheep Man
Acid Man vs. Needle Man
Gyro Man vs. Neptune vs. Saturn

23 votes yet again! Some of these matchups were neck and neck, too!

Charge Man and Terra clashed at full force. Thanks to Charge Man's intensive training, he managed to pull through in the end (Charge Man 12-11).
Ballade gawked from behind his mask as Tomahawk Man took a Ballade Cracker to the face, blowing the feathers clean off his head (Ballade 14-9).
Cut Man thought he'd cut Impact Man apart, when in fact Impact Man had actually separated into the Impact Brothers, quickly outnumbering him (Impact Man 12-11).
Showing absolutely no tolerance for Mercury's penchant for piracy, Dive Man hunted him down and threw him into the brig where he belonged (Dive Man 14-9).
In a battle of extreme temperatures, Heat Man's atomic meltdown eventually broke through Freeze Man's icy veil and reduced him to slag (Heat Man 13-10).

Keepers of the ruins clashed deep beneath the earth. Sword Man repelled countless Spread Drills and handily put Ground Man to the sword (Sword Man 12-11).
Blizzard Man took full advantage of Pluto's characteristic, cat-like aversion to the cold and buried him beneath a heap of chilling snow (Blizzard Man 17-6).
Tengu Blade and Slash Claw matched each other, blow for blow, but eventually Tengu Man's aerial superiority spelled Slash Man's defeat (Tengu Man 16-7).
Clever Quick Man, relentlessly goading and baiting Junk Man, managed to lure his opponent into stumbling into a deadly force beam (Quick Man 17-6).
Thanks to his aversion to fire, Hornet Man and his legion of hornets were wholly unable to stand up to Turbo Man's Scorch Wheel (Turbo Man 13-10).

Terra, Tomahawk Man, Cut Man, Mercury, Freeze Man, Ground Man, Pluto, Slash Man, Junk Man, and Hornet Man have been eliminated!

And the eliminations won't be stopping there, either. Onwards!

We've accumulated 23 votes today. Thank you to everyone for such a consistent turnout!

In the upper pool...

Hard Man and Cold Man clashed in a boxing match. Despite being a literal box, Cold Man fell to Hard Man's right hook (Hard Man 13-10).
Gyro Man took to the sky to escape Chain Blast's radius, but Blast Man blew himself skyward to land a solid hit (Blast Man 12-11).
Buster Rod G stepped up to bat and swung his rod once, twice, three times, and was struck out by Strike Man (Strike Man 12-11).
Crash Man and Ground Man engaged in drill warfare, but Tornado Man spiraled high above them both (Tornado Man 15.5, Ground Man 10, Crash Man 9).

In the lower pool...

On top of generally being a jerk, Pirate Man hit Plug Man where it hurt by plundering his entire manga collection (Pirate Man 16-7).
Acid Barrier and Bubble Bomb collided, triggered an explosive reaction that left Acid Man standing triumphant over Venus (Acid Man 17-6).
Flash Man's shiny, bald head made an easy mark for Commando Man, being perfectly visible even through a sandstorm (Commando Man 13-10.)
Charge Man plowed straight over both Toad Man and Star Man, who croaked and saw stars respectively (Charge Man 13, Toad Man 12, Star Man 9.5).

Plug Man, Venus, Flash Man, Toad Man, and Star Man have been eliminated!

At this point, 28 Robot Masters have been eliminated. This round's losers of the upper pool and winners of the lower pool will now fight to stay in the game. By the end of this phase, 28 more will be eliminated, leaving 54 of the 110 Robot Masters remaining. With their eligibility for best Robot Master EVER at stake, things are really going to heat up, so stay tuned!

Today's total is 27 votes. That's actually quite impressive, considering the very first poll received 29 votes!

In the upper pool...

Freeze Man and Punk engaged in a pose-off. Freeze Man struck his coolest pose, but Punk's edgy moves shattered his resolve (Punk 15-12).
Napalm Man's barrage was as relentless as a waterfall, such that Bubble Man's acidic armament simply couldn't compete (Napalm Man 18-9).
Frost Man's sluggish moves and icy body meant he never stood a chance against Elec Man's quick wit and crackling lightning (Elec Man 16-11).
Ballade challenged Knight Man to a duel to prove his superiority, but neither Knight Man's shield nor resolve would be broken (Knight Man 18-9).

In the lower pool...

Needle Man drove a spike straight through Dynamo Man's generator, causing him to electrocute himself instead of recharging (Needle Man 19-8).
Junk Man managed to turn the tables on Wind Man by using the strong winds to propel large chunks of scrap at his opponent (Junk Man 15-12).
Bomb Man tried to repel Crystal Man's attacks with some bombs, but the resulting crystal shards failed to catch his eye (Crystal Man 16-11).
Stone Man tried to throw Top Man off balance with some earthquakes, but Top Man wasn't about to let anything slow him down (Top Man 14-13).

Dynamo Man, Wind Man, Bomb Man, and Stone Man have been eliminated!

Here come the last groups before we focus on the lower pool's major phase for a bit.

Upper Pool
Round 2 -- Group F

Cold Man vs. Hard Man
Blast Man vs. Gyro Man
Strike Man vs. Buster Rod G
Crash Man vs. Tornado Man vs. Ground Man

Lower Pool
Round 2 (Minor) -- Group F

Pirate Man vs. Plug Man
Venus vs. Acid Man
Flash Man vs. Commando Man
Toad Man vs. Charge Man vs. Star Man

You'll notice we have a couple of three-way matchups this time. Rather than vote for just one of the three, you'll be ranking them from favorite to least favorite. Favorite picks will count as one (1) vote, while second favorites will receive half of a vote. While only one winner will emerge, this will hopefully ensure a more accurate overall rating.

As before, I can't count votes that don't fulfill this condition, so please make sure you vote correctly. Feel free to ask questions if need be.

My vote:

Cold Man
Blast Man
Buster Rod G
Tornado Man > Crash Man > Ground Man

Pirate Man
Acid Man
Flash Man
Charge Man > Star Man > Toad Man

23 votes again! Due to some prior obligations, I had to wait a little bit before I could get around to this, but it all worked out!

In the upper pool...

Tomahawk Man and Snake Man had a high noon showdown in the dusty wilds, from which Snake Man slithered away victorious (Snake Man 14-9).
Air Man repelled Grenade Man's Flash Bombs back at him and claimed victory, but Grenade Man seemed to enjoy it all the same (Air Man 13-10).
Time Man was surprised by Enker's punctual arrival--so much so that he didn't notice he had been run through with a barrier spear (Enker 19-4).
Sheep Man was getting bored watching all of these matches, so Galaxy Man offered him an all-expense-paid trip into deep space (Galaxy Man 13-10).

In the lower pool...

Impact Man powered through Plant Man's flowery defenses and skewered him, making himself a lovely bouquet in the process (Impact Man 14-9).
Though not quite as corrosive or potent as Salt Water, Wave Man's Water Wave was more than enough to sink Mars's battleship (Wave Man 15-8).
Not content with simply burying his opponent, Block Man recklessly broke down an entire dam and washed Aqua Man away (Block Man 16-7).
Astro Man's Astro Crush was more than capable of blowing Mega Water S out of the water and into low orbit, barrier or not (Astro Man 16-7).

Plant Man, Mars, Aqua Man, and Mega Water S have been eliminated!

Onto the next groups, then!

Upper Pool
Round 2 -- Group E

Freeze Man vs. Punk
Bubble Man vs. Napalm Man
Elec Man vs. Frost Man

This was an interesting set. I received 26 votes, but unfortunately, I had to discard an incomplete one per the rules:

Additionally, keep in mind that I won't be counting votes that omit any of the matchups. Vote properly or not at all, please.

This leaves us with 25 votes accounted for. Rest assured, I'll try to get in touch if I notice any mistakes. I'd hate for anyone to miss out!

In the upper pool...

Shadow Man, behind the wheel of his Shinobi Master vehicle, managed to claim victory over Turbo Man in a 1-on-1 race (Shadow Man 13-12).
Gravity Man pinned his opponent's stray spear head against the ceiling, leaving Yamato Man defenseless and winning handily (Gravity Man 14-11).
Concrete Man's Concrete Shot left Sword Man wholly immobilized. Won't be pulling the sword from that stone anytime soon (Concrete Man 14-11).
In a moment of ingenuity, Dust Man repelled Dive Man's missiles with a blast of air, turning his own attack against him (Dust Man 18-7).
Rather than attack directly, Flame Man ignited the flammable oil stored aboard the cargo ship and blew Blizzard Man sky high (Flame Man 13-12).

In the lower pool...

Clown Man tried to take a ride on Centaur Man's back, but he ended up trampled instead. That's what he gets for horsing around (Centaur Man 18-7).
Rather than deflecting the attack, Jewel Man's shimmering gems refracted and refocused Terra's Spark Chaser directly at himself (Terra 17-8).
Light and darkness clashed, but not quite in equal measure, as Bright Man soon found himself swallowed up by Saturn's Black Hole (Saturn 14-11).
Chill Man and Bounce Man went head-to-head, but where Chill Man managed to keep his cool, Bounce Man ended up dropping the ball (Chill Man 17-8).
Metal Man battled Spark Man till the break of dawn, and finally triumphed. Spark Man was just glad he hadn't ended up headless (Metal Man 18-7).

Clown Man, Jewel Man, Bright Man, Bounce Man, and Spark Man have been eliminated!

And, of course, a new set to vote for!

Upper Pool
Round 2 -- Group D

In the upper pool...

Wood Man discovered that lighting does strike twice when he was felled by Jupiter. Too bad nobody was around to hear it (Jupiter 13-6).
Magnet Man was magnetically drawing death in, until he reversed polarity. Skull Man will think twice before messing with him again (Magnet Man 11-8).
Tengu Man was zapped by Fuse Man and came crashing down to the ground, not unlike a bird coming to rest on a live power line (Fuse Man 10-9).
Blade Man fought with magnificent fervor, but Fire Man's spirit of justice would not be quelled, once again allowing him to prevail (Fire Man 10-9).
The birds and the bees clashed as Magic Man and Hornet Man went head-to-head. Unfortunately, Hornet Man couldn't quite measure up (Magic Man 12-7).

Meanwhile, in the lower pool...

Uranus gave it his every effort, but unsurprisingly, his innate vulnerability to Pluto's Break Dash spelled his downfall (Pluto 11-8).
They say heat rises, but Heat Man took it to a new extreme when he was somehow able to get the drop on Cloud Man (Heat Man 12-7).
Burner Man went well beyond smoking Oil Man, going as far as to burn everything within a 50-foot radius just for the heck of it (Burner Man 15-4).
Cut Man used his Rolling Cutter to turn Ice Man's parka into a lovely scarf, leaving his brother defeated and absolutely mortified (Cut Man 13-6).
Quint's time travels apparently landed him in the Year of the Pig, since Hyper Storm H fought at his best and claimed victory (Hyper Storm H 10-9).

Uranus, Cloud Man, Oil Man, Ice Man, and Quint have been eliminated!

Onwards!
