The Queen of /v/ 2022 was the fourth edition of 4chan's annual video game waifu tournament held inside the /v/ - Video Games board. Based on American East Coast Time (UTC-04:00), the nominations started on November 11, 20:00 while the final round ended at November 20.

Rules[edit]

How to nominate[edit]

  • Character must appear in a video game (vidya)
  • You must post the image, type the character name AND the correct series name (e.g. [I nominate] Link from Legend of Zelda)
  • 12 replies / (You)s are needed in a single thread to qualify as a nominee.
  • One nominee per post only
  • Check the nomination list (Ctrl+F, click the "three vertical dots" icon, and enter character name) to see if your girl is already nominated


Character / series eligibility[edit]

  • FOTM Clause: Characters who first appeared at the month before the start of this contest (October 01 and later) are banned.
  • Visual novels / eroge games / galgames are allowed (e.g. Fate, Steins;Gate, Hunie Pop)
  • Characters debuting in non-vidya media that is part of an established vidya franchise are accepted (e.g. Miss Pauling @ Team Fortress 2[a 1], Jeanne d'Arc @ Fate/Apocrypha[a 2], Tokai Teio @ Uma Musume[a 3])
  • Characters debuting in a game that is part of a non-vidya / multimedia franchise are accepted (e.g. Android 21 @ Dragon Ball FighterZ[a 4], Iroha Tamaki @ Magia Record[a 5])
  • Characters that do not debut in a video game may be accepted if they are deemed to have a sufficiently strong presence in /v/ board culture, or are better known for their video game appearance. (e.g. Geralt @ The Witcher, AM @ I Have no Mouth)
  • Characters who are not male/female or whose gender is unknown are eligible for both Queen and King tournaments, but if they appear in the main bracket in the Queen contest, they will be ineligible for nomination in King (and vice versa).
  • Spinoffs and crossovers are counted as separate series. This rule mainly applies to characters debuting and/or are better known from said series. (e.g. Leona @ King of Fighters, Joker @ Persona, Sora @ Kingdom Hearts, Master Hand @ Super Smash Bros., Wario @ Wario series)
    • However, if a given character has previously appeared in another game prior to being featured in a spinoff/crossover/guest appearance, they will be entered under their original series whenever the host deems it convenient.
  • No fan-made characters, including memes, OCs and custom characters (e.g. Anonymous Guy, Coomer, Coldsteel the Hedgeheg, Create-A-Player from NBA 2K )
  • No inanimate objects (e.g. L-Block, Ebony & Ivory)
  • No grandfather clause: a contestant that appears here may not be allowed for future editions (e.g. Hatsune Miku after 2019, Ebony & Ivory after 2021)

Voting policy[edit]

All rounds last 24 hours starting from the first relevant thread posted. Countdowns via the its.almo.st website will be provided by the host.

Starting from the qualifiers, all polls and results will be held in Google Polls. A Gmail account is needed to access the voting form. Emails will not be visible to the host and other users. Before voting, a user must answer a question related to 4chan board culture and tournament history, and must fulfill a CAPTCHA test before they can submit their votes. A user can change their choices at any time before the round ends; this is to allow campaigns like fan arts, voice recordings, video edits, songs, and poetry to convince someone to change their mind.

In the main bracket rounds, you must vote for all matches.

Qualifying round[edit]

1104 successful nominees will be consolidated into a single massive group where voters select the girls that they want to advance. There is no restriction on how many girls they can select. This format is called Approval voting. After the round ends, 128 girls with the most votes will advance into the bracket. Ties are broken by whoever gets properly nominated earlier.

A maximum of 3 girls per series can enter the bracket. However, if a series makes it into last year's Elite Eight, including the champion, their limit will be reduced to 2 girls for this edition.


Advanced[edit]

Bold text indicates character who appears in the bracket for the first time.
Recettear, Yume Nikki, Touhou, Mega Man, Black Souls, Cave Story, Metal Slug, and Shantae will only have 2 girls in the bracket instead of 3.

Bracket[edit]

The main bracket

128 characters, single elimination. The bracket is seeded according to qualifier votes; if multiple characters have the same amount of qualifier votes, the higher seed goes to whoever is nominated properly first. If a match ends in a tie, both characters will advance to the next round, resulting in some matches having 3-4 characters. However, if the tied match is a final, then the higher seed wins the title.

Characters who reach the quarter-finals are granted Elite Eight status and will be temporarily suspended for next edition, except the champion who will be permanently banned afterwards.

  • Quarter-final losers will play each other in a four-way match. Scoring method TBA.
  • Semi-final losers will play each other for 3rd place.

All rounds begin and end at Eastern Time evening hours (UTC-04:00, around 20:00~22:00).

  • Bracket Link: Challonge
  • Voter Turnout: 1648 - 1506 - 1245 - 1402 - 1455 - 1312 - 1238

Reception[edit]

An unofficial spin-off bracket called Queen /v/ No Hopers Tournament, later known as Maid of /v/ 2022, was hosted by an anon known in Challonge as 2Obscure4v, who wanted a bracket fought by the bottom 128 nominees of this edition.
