Web Original: Tumblr Rumblr

The Tumblr Rumblr is an Original Character Tournament hosted on Tumblr. Contestents sign up to compete for the "Door to Reality" which is said to lead to real life. It's rather lighthearted, with many silly and colorful characters, but there are hints at sinister scheming behind the scenes.

This work provides examples of:

  • Loads and Loads of Characters: 144 competitors signed up. A number didn't show up for the first round, though.
  • Alternate Universe: Takes place on the internet
  • There Can Be Only One: Well it is a tourny.
  • Announcer Chatter: The Announcer of Tumblr Rumblr is widely known for his "chillaxed" and yet sadistic announcing style.
  • Shipping: Several characters have become romantically involved with each other, but by this point, they have been identified as platonic relationships.
