Barred from Queen
Host: Bill Clinton
Since King of /v/ 2022, one anon has held a smaller side tournament focused on characters whom were not allowed into the main tournament on some account, whether it be host interference or unfortunate qualifier results. This would be the first of these for Queen of /v/ and the fourth Barred from X tournament to date, following King of /v/ 2022, Ms. /co/ 2023, and Mr. /co/lympus 2023.
Going into the tournament, Koishi Komeiji was one of the clear favorites to win. She had been consistent presence in the Queen of /v/ threads for years, with many seeing her as having favorable odds of making the main bracket. The removal of one of Touhou's slots since 2022 had caused her to be barred from the tournament twice despite coming in third among Touhou girls during qualifiers twice. This year in particular she had ended up losing out on the bracket by a single vote to Alice Margatroid. Kainé from NieR Replicant had also been seen as a top contender to possibly win due to the dispute over her disqualification. Koishi and Kainé would face off in the semi-finals, with Koishi winning and going on to take the tournament's first champion title for Queen of /v/.
