The Batter

From 4chan Tournaments Wiki
(Redirected from Batter)

Not to be confused with BattLer Ushiromiya.

The Batter is the player character of the role-playing game Off, created by Belgian developer Mortis Ghost (real name Martin Georis) with soundtrack by Alias Conrad Coldwood. He appears as a baseball player who uses a bat to whack enemies senseless, and has a stoic and terse personality. The Batter has only one objective: to "purify" the world, and will stop at nothing to complete his sacred mission. Even though he's the protagonist, he is aware of the unseen soul that controls him - aka you, the player.

Off was originally made in the French language, and was released in 2008 to critical acclaim and positive reception among players mainly due to its unique visuals and atmospheric music. The game is known for garnering a large fanbase on Tumblr - and all the shit that's associated with the site such as obnoxious fans and gay fan arts - but its relatively old age and the emergence of newer, more popular indie RPG games has somewhat lessened this association.

As a result of what has been described as one of the biggest and most impactful campaigns in the tournaments' history, the Batter would end being crowned champion of the third installment of the King of /v/alhallah tournament, famously beating Dr. Eggman in the final match.

Tournament History[edit]

The Batter rose from relative obscurity to becoming the ultimate champion of the board's King of /v/ character tournament in 2021 thanks to a combination of teamfagging, tourney lore autism, and mountains of OC art; by the end of the contest the Batter received the highest-ever number of entries in the /v/alhalla booru with 250+, accounting for more than 20% of all entries in the site. There's also the precedence of the board electing an indie game protagonist (Recette) as that year's Queen, who also won because of a concerted effort of anons producing tournament-related fan arts for her.
