Courage is the titular character and the main protagonist of the Cartoon Network TV series Courage the Cowardly Dog, created by John R. Dilworth. A small pink dog of undetermined breed, Courage was abandoned as a puppy after his parents were sent into outer space, but was adopted by Muriel Bagge. Ironically, given his name, Courage can be a genuine coward and he often expresses his distress with over-the-top, piercing shrieks. Regardless, he still goes to great lengths to protect his loved ones, outsmarting the villains most of the time.

Tournament History[edit]

Courage has traditionally been considered an excellent performer in Mr. /co/lympus, both in part due to his status as a classic Cartoon Network character and for his flawed yet compassionate, friendly and honorable personality.

As a 75th seed in his first appearance during the Mr. /co/lympus 2018 tournament, Courage managed to reach the Round 4 stage without much trouble save for a close encounter with another future elite contestant Skeletor. Unfortunately, he wouldn't make it to quarter-finals due to the intrusion of Captain America, barely missing by a single vote difference.

In 2019, Courage achieved a third place finish after defeating Professor Utonium, Bugs Bunny and finally Hank Hill in the post-semifinals consolation round. Despite making a new record high seed (#2) in his return during the 2021 contest, Courage was eliminated just right before he could make the Top 8 once again, defeated by the comic book representative J. Jonah Jameson.

Courage returned in Mr. /co/lympus 2022 and ended up earning the top seed of the entire selection of candidates, in spite (or perhaps because) of the year's Ms. /co/ controversy surrounding Shirley the Medium. He did not face seed #128, Dr. Livesey, due to the implementation of a randomized bracket in the first round. That said, he ended up taking every match easily all the way until the Elite Eight. It became a running joke that he had made it so far without any campaigning, although Courage did get several pieces of OC and his supporters had a decent presence in the threads. He ended up narrowly taking down Squidward in the quarter-finals, but was finally defeated by Carl Brutananadilewski in the semi-finals. A number of anons had expected a Courage vs. Daffy finale since the tournament began and were shocked by the actual results going into the finals. Courage would place 3rd in the post-semifinals consolation round just like he did in 2019.

The cowardly dog will able to compete again in Mr. /co/lympus 2024.
