UPDATE: NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED. CLICK HERE TO VOTE IN ROUND ONE!
Ever wonder what a Meat Mithkabob would taste like? How about a swig of fresh Lon Lon Milk? Now’s your chance to bring your favorite fantasy food to life, because Wikia’s Battle of the Fantasy Foods is back!
Each summer, superfans from all over Wikia vote in our Battle of the Fantasy Foods to see which fictional foods they love the most. Communities nominate one fantasy food to represent their fandom, and out of these, 64 foods battle it out in our bracket tournament. Then, we create real-life versions of the four most popular contenders and serve them in our food truck at New York Comic Con.
Fans loved the Wikia Fantasy Food Truck at New York Comic Con last year, where hundreds of folks lined up for a chance to try the Final Four. After over 170,000 votes were tallied, Fallout’s Nuka Cola came out on top, winning 64% of the vote against Gravity Falls’ Mabel Juice. The other winning foods came from the communities of Steven Universe and Warframe. In addition, our team partnered with food bloggers to create video tutorials for some of the fantasy foods:
Think your community and its nominee can make it to the truck this year? Submit your food and find out!
During the submission period this year, we're looking for each and every community on Wikia to enter a fantasy food. Only one food per community can enter, and we’d love to see different food contenders, so past winners won’t be eligible to compete again. We'd love to see an even bigger turnout this time around, so encourage your community to rally around your food nominee!
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, 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 in two weeks, and Wikia Staff will sort through the entries to select the 64 most popular foods and drinks. On July 18, we'll post the first voting polls on the Recipes Wiki with our bracket of 64 fighting foods. Then the battle begins with a new narrowed-down round of voting happening each week until we have the Final Four in our Food Truck Showcase and—of course—an ultimate winner.
Get busy nominating your foods and drinks from your community, and may the best fantasy food win!
