This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament has returned, and all eyes will be on Yoda, who be looking to repeat as champion. Last year, the Grand Master of the Jedi Order defeated Darth Vader in the finale by a 3:2 margin (60%) of votes. The loss for Vader didn’t sit well with a lot of Star Wars fans, and was deemed an upset by many after watching him cruise through the Dark Side conference.

For this year’s tournament, both Yoda and Vader will be squaring off against old foes and some new faces as well. The action started yesterday with Attack of the Play-Ins, in which four Star Wars characters will have to win a spot in the tournament.

Last year, we at handicapped the bracket and are back to offer some insight on the opening weekend.

Let the Madness begin!


Tough Talk from a Jedi Master in This Is Madness


A narrow victory for a princess over her mother. Best (droid) friends torn apart. And a Sith Lord commanding citizens to support him via holographic transmission. This Is Madness: The Star Wars Character Tournament has featured many intriguing storylines, and with today’s start of Duel of the Eights, the conference semi-finals, more epic battles are coming.

Vaunted Jedi Master Yoda takes on Obi-Wan Kenobi today, but has already defeated two tough opponents, including his pupil, Luke Skywalker, a.k.a. the galaxy’s new hope. The Emperor’s “little green friend” is very satisfied with his victory, it seems.
