UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who nominated foods! Voting is now live!!
There were some overwhelmingly popular nominations, and we were super pleased to see a lot of newcomers to the bracket. Go vote for your favorites now!
This year, you can also nominate foods in separate brackets being run in multiple languages:
These brackets will include nominees from our international communities in those languages, so the foods will be different in these polls. Enjoy!
It's that time again—time for the 3rd Annual Battle of the Fantasy Foods!
For the last two years, we've run this bracket tournament so superfans like you can choose the greatest fantasy food fandom in all the land. And each year, dozens of amazing communities turn out to nominate the fictional foods nearest and dearest to their hearts, and rally behind them with votes to victory.
Once again, we're taking the fantasy foods that reach our Final Four round on the road, featuring them on the Wikia Fantasy Food Truck at New York Comic Con 2015 in October!
Last year, we saw record turnout for this event! After we received hundreds of nominations from all over Wikia, we selected 64 of those foods to compete. The Final Four that ended up on the Wikia Food Truck included:
The incredible thing about last year's four Fantasy Foods was just how hard these communities worked to drum up the vote, even tapping into the fandom outside of Wikia and getting the game companies, show creators, and actors involved! Nukapedia's Nuka Cola saw support from the official Bethesda Twitter and even the Fallout Sub-Reddit. The Warframe Twitter pushed Warframe Wiki's Greedy Milk from day one of voting. Adventure Time Wiki and Gravity Falls Wiki made big pushes on their communities and on social media. Gravity Falls' show creator Alex Hirsch and actor Jason Ritter also joined in on the campaign, putting Smile Dip over the top with an insane 15,556 superfan votes!
Here are some photos of fans enjoying the goods from the Wikia Fantasy Food Truck last year:
Think your community and its food nominee can make it to the truck this year? Now's your chance.
During the submission period this year, we're looking for every community to enter their contenders. We'd love to see an even bigger turnout this time around, and we'd also love to see different entries from the communities who entered last year!
How does it work?
- CHOOSE: Choose a food or beverage that exists only in a fictional universe (Examples: Butterbeer from Harry Potter or Lembas from The Lord of the Rings).
- NOMINATE: Nominate as many foods as you like in the form below, but make sure they strongly represent your community's iconic edibles and drinkables.
- SPREAD THE WORD: Spread the word with your fellow fans so your community's foods will be represented in the bracket tournament!
The submission period will end on July 28, and Wikia Staff will sort through the entries to select the 64 most popular foods and drinks. On July 29, we'll post the first voting polls with our bracket of 64 chosen foods. Then the battle begins with a new narrowed-down round of voting happening each week until we have a final four for our Food Truck Showcase and—of course—an ultimate winner.
So, get busy nominating your foods and drinks from your community, and may the best fantasy food win!
