You love the things you love. And we love that you love them. And you love us for loving that you love them? The point is, you guys like things a lot, so you join fandoms. And whether you’re a Potterhead, Twi-Hard, or a Brony, you are devoted.
Here at Figment HQ we wondered: Which fandom rules them all? And we know there’s only one way to figure that out. So without further ado, we present Figment’s Fandom Showdown!
We’ve collected 32 of the most popular fandoms out there. Now it’s time for you to vote for your favorites! Scroll through to read about the match-ups and then vote on the bracket below.
Harry Potter vs. Transformers
Potterheads and Transformers fans have a lot in common: Both like things that . . . can turn into other things? Cars into giant robots and professors into cats are basically the same thing, right?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer vs. My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Bronies is easily the weirdest fandom in this showdown. I mean, we respect all of your passions, but, really? Anyway, will Buffy slay the Bronies? Or will Bronies win out?
The Hunger Games vs. Once Upon a Time
In Once Upon a Time, fairy tale creatures gets transplanted into the real world. In The Hunger Games, children get transplanted into a world in which they’re forced to battle to the death. Which is worse, really?
Doctor Who vs. Pretty Little Liars
If the Liars could have traveled with the Doctor in the Tardis, they would have solved the whole A problem a whole lot sooner. We call dibs on this crossover fic!
Maximum Ride vs. Glee
In a battle of the high school cliques, we’d take the Flock over Gleeks any day.
The Mortal Instruments vs. Homestuck
Clary discovers the world of the Shadowhunters inside her very own New York City. John Egbert gets transported to the virtual world of Shurbs. Everyone has adventures. Everyone almost dies . . . a lot.
Sherlock vs. WWE
WWE wrestlers and Sherlock both have a flair for the dramatic. Sherlock might do well in the ring, actually — he’s pretty good at pretending to die.
Supernatural vs. Merlin
Both of these shows have some seriously good-looking gentlemen stars. That’s just . . . that’s all we’ve got.
X-Men vs. Lord of the Rings
We’ll make this choice simple for you: Do you like Sir Ian McKellen better as Magneto or Gandalf?
Adventure Time vs. One Direction
Everyone in the Land of Ooo DEFINITELY knows they’re beautiful.
Star Trek vs. The Avengers
Can you imagine Spock and Tony Stark in a room? Can someone make that happen? Joss Whedon?
Hannibal vs. Percy Jackson
There’s gotta be a cannibal/Greek god joke in there somewhere. A little help, fannibals!
Twilight vs. Star Wars
Leia or Bella? We’re not trying to sway your vote, but that question has a correct answer.
Avatar: The Last Airbender vs. Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones and Avatar: The Last Airbender characters have inherently different goals: one wants power, the other wants peace.
Naruto vs. Firefly
If you combined Naruto and Firefly you would get a Japanese-American space ninja western. That’s definitely something we could get behind.
The Walking Dead vs. The Vampire Diaries
Actually, both of these shows could be called The Walking Dead. Get it? Because vampires aren’t really alive. See what we did there?
