Sam (Sam & Max)

From 4chan Tournaments Wiki

Sam is one of the two titular characters of the Sam & Max franchise created by Steve Purcell. Having originally appared in a 1987 comic book series, the character has since been the subject of a graphic adventure video game developed by LucasArts, a television series, and a series of episodic adventure games developed by Telltale Games. A member of the Freelance Police, Sam comes off as more level headed and less violent than his long time partner Max, usually depicted as being very calm, rational and collected, preferring to solve things diplomatically rather than always resorting to violence.

Outside of the main tourney, Sam made his first /co/mpetition victory in the inaugural 2019 Tag-Team tournament.

Tournament History[edit]

In a similar fashion to Max, Sam is generally perceived as a weak contender. He made his first Mr. /co/lympus year in 2020, taking the 91st seed, and was pitted against the eventual Mr. /co/lympus 2021 winner General Grievous. While Sam would still lose the round and wasn't expected to do very well facing a heavy hitter at the very start of the tourney, he was able to amass a considerable amount of fan art and campaigning, giving him a boost in votes. Sam would fail to qualify the following year. He qualified once more in 2022. Despite once again losing in the first round, this time to Red Guy from Don't Hug Me I'm Scared, his partner Max would pull a surprise run into the Elite Eight that year. Unfortunately, Sam would fail to earn another tournament berth the year following his partner's success.

Perhaps Sam's most impressive showing to this day is his victory of the 2019 Tag-Team tournament, being one half of the iconic duo Freelance Police, alongside his pal Max.

Sam will eligible to participate again in 2024.
