#DisneyPower #MarchMadness Round Three – Sweet Sixteen

Disney Sleeping Beauty

[Click here for our podcast review of Round 2 with color commentary.]

Welcome to Round 3 for Non-Productive.com‘s March Madness competition to determine the most powerful Disney character of all time!

The Second Round featured waves upon waves of close calls, although not as many upsets we had in our First Round. That being said, with so many amazing characters making it by the skin of their teeth/beaks – it’s clear that people need to take this stupid thing seriously if they want to see the truest, most powerful versions of their favorite Disney heroes and villains make it to the end!

And as always, your rambling comments and justifications are just as important as your votes! Everyone at NonPro is eagerly reading between the lines of each nomination, seed, and vote in the desperate attempt to make sense of just why someone considers one character more powerful than another, but of course you can clear it all up by volunteering to tell us your motivation in the box below each of the games below!

    For this year's nerd-centric March Madness, we're asking you, the geeks of the world, to decide once and for all which Disney character is the most powerful of them all! And "powerful" is big word - it can mean infinite cosmic abilities like Genie, a breakout star like Olaf, a legendary icon like Mickey, or a character that breaks molds to inspires us like Mulan.

    Game 1

    Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty


    Jafar from Aladdin

    Maleficent is the baddest fairy of all the land, and she makes an awesome dragon - but Jafar ruled a different fairy-tale kingdom with the phenomenal cosmic power of a genie!

    Ursula's magic gives her the edge, but Beast has experience dealing with witches and enchantresses - and he won't be caught with his fur down again!

    Game 4

    The Incredibles from The Incredibles


    Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas

    True Fact: The year that The Incredibles was released, characters from that movie were the most popular costumes at Halloween. We don't know what that means for our contest, exactly, but there you go.

    Hades from Hercules


    Donald Duck from Ducktails and Cartoon Shorts
