Addicts Bracket Challenge: Most Desired Character Week 8 (The Elite 8)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers! It’s time for Week 8 voting of our Addicts Bracket Challenge!  We’re down to the Elite 8…who will move onto the Final Four?  Vote now to find out! 
Once again….here’s Safi:

How much longer EA can keep Tapped Out going is up for debate. But what isn’t debatable is that there are plenty of characters in the rich history of The Simpsons universe still not in our little game. From Homer’s college mates to his look-a-likes, from Bart’s crushes to Lisa’s idols, from four-eyed friends to four-legged pets, there is plenty of ‘untapped’ potential (pun intended). But which character do we really want?

We present to you the TSTO Addicts: Most Desired Character Bracket Battle…..

TSTOBracket EliteEight

Just to recap the stats on our 8 Conference Champions competing in the Elite Eight:

Four #1 seed, two #2 seed, one #7 seed, and one #8 seed won their Conferences (clearly most of you all want Pinchy and Mr. Sparkle more badly than I do).

In the eight Conference Final match-ups, no winner received over 90% of the vote, none received 85.01% to 90%, 1 received 80.01% to 85%, 4 received 60.01% to 80%, 2 received 55.01% to 60%, and 1 squeaked by with 50.01 to 55%.

  1. Smell you later, Wendell. Smell you later… forever. That was an easy choice, picking Bleeding Gums, but a hard action scrapping the Prince of Puke. I’ve enjoyed seeing Wendell pop into random episodes for 20+ years. Not feeling too bad though… all my picks from last week made it.


  2. I have a bias of my own as well, my fellow Canuck!
    Leon would good, but to make him great, he would have to be voiced. Which, like the Phil Hartman characters, may unfortunately be unpossible. I’m not thinking about the actual voice actors having passed on, but b/c of possible copyright issues. Mr Sparkle, on the other head, could ger away without a voice. I read that Hank Azaria did some voiceover for a video game version of FishBulb, hmmm.

  3. I voted for Wendell, Pinchy, Mr Sparkle and Allison. I think they can have great outdoor tasks with Wendell puking in a bag or bucket. Pinchy 3 going for a walk with Homer on a leash while being dragged around Springfield or the beach and playing outside with the birds. Allison having a jazz off with Lisa and giving a diarama about The Telltale Heart. Finally with Mr Sparkle floating around Springfield advertising his brand to various shops and to combine the logos from two factories to become fish-bulb. P. S. I know that it’s a crab but I can’t find a lobster one! 🐟💡🦀🏖🎶🤒

  4. If Leon became a character in the game he must have the task “sing happy birthday to Lisa” it could be done with Bart. Would be awesome!

    Safi, why weren’t itchy and scratchy in the poll?

  6. Bleeding Gums does have one advantage: He’d come with The Jazz Hole.

  7. Looking forward to seeing the jazz man obliterate Wendell (jk….sort of…..sorry Wendell fans). I’m one of the few that is still pulling for pinchy but you already knew that. I also really really want leon. I come from a family of big MJ fans, my sister being the biggest. I struggled choosing between allison and Sarah but in the end I gave it to Sarah because I like the idea of a complete family unit. Can’t believe we’re already down to 8…..looking forward to seeing how it all ends. Thanks again Safi!

  8. Say, Say, Say!

    I would love to have a character to go with my matching Tapped Out username! I shouldn’t be limited to appearing in 100 friend towns. Wanna Be Startin Somethin.

    Get it Together! Be sure to keep voting for Leon !
    I Want to Be Where You Are.
    Will you Be There?

  9. Easy picks… Sax on the Beach, Nerds!, I love you Poppinfresh, and Lisa’s birthday. While I agree with most that Murphy has a strong chance for the win, I’m actually hoping Leon pulls this one out. He’s my fave of the four but that episode is so classic.

  10. So sad the Rabbi is out, but I had a feeling that would happen when I saw him go up against BGM, who I suspected from the start would win the whole thing (based on what I’ve seen in the comments over the last couple of years).

    The matchup I’m struggling with most is Samantha vs. Sarah….don’t feel strongly about either up of them, and can come up with reasons why I’d like each of them to win. I’ll have to come back to that one…

  11. 4 easy votes for me. Shame about Laddie, I think he’s awesome.

  12. I thought Bleeding Gums would win from the beginning and I don’t see anybody left that can beat him at this point.

  13. Before all this started the two characters I wanted to see was Mr Sparkle and Senor Ding Dong. Since I’m down to one please people we need a fishbulb!

    • I don’t really get how Mr Sparkle would be a playable character for our game. I thought it was just a picture in an ad like on the my billboard. I’m sure a character can be made out of anything, but it seems like it’d have to be changed quite a bit more than any other character in this whole challenge to work in our games. I’m amazed it’s made it this far, but perhaps there’s something there I’m missing? 🤔 RachelS

      • I think more than a few people share your feelings on this. As for me it seems no more daft than aliens,plopper or a space coyote wandering about(or even the coyote head floating about) I don’t know exactly why but it really appeals to me so much more than any of the others.

        • I agree with the ‘no more daft’ reasoning, but I’m wondering about the logistics of this as the others are ‘whole characters’. Would you want them to create a walking around character for Mr Sparkle? In the ad picture we only see his head right? Or I guess he could be a floating head in the game like the coyote. Just curious! 😎 RachelS

      • Anything goes in a cartoon. Mr. Sparkle could step out of the billboard and become a real character.

  15. I had hoped that Pinchy would appear from the lobster hell at the end of the Superhero 2 event, like Radio Active Man did at the end of Superhero 1.
