#7 Crookshanks vs. #10 Iago

First yesterday's results: In the biggest blow-out yet, Pantalaimon scored 85% of the vote, easily moving on to the Elite 8.

Middle-earth Regional
Round One

# 7 Crookshanks


#10 Iago

Tale of the Tape


Crookshanks - highly intelligent, can sense untrustworthy people

Iago - mimicry, high intelligence

Advantage: even


Crookshanks - cat

Iago - Scarlet macaw

Advantage: Crookshanks


Crookshanks - Hermione Grainger

Iago - Jafar

Advantage: Crookshanks

Bottom Line:

It would seem foolish to bet against one of the Potter kids, but Iago should at least be able to keep this first round match-up interesting. In the end, though, Crookshanks should prevail. Don't forget to vote!

Tomorrow: The final first round match-up, as #8 Flotsam and Jetsam battles #9 Argo.


  1. I'm definitely going with Crookshanks. There's no way that rotten Iago would ever win against such a smart kitty!

  2. Iago is so mean so I'm going with Crookshanks. ..She (He?) could eat Iago in one bite.

  3. I LOVE Iago--is it too late to vote?
