Vote on the greatest buzzers in history: Season nine, round one

Things are heating up!

UPDATE: This round is now closed. You can vote on round two here.

Who had the best buzzer of American Ninja Warrior season nine? That’s what we need you to tell us! If you’re new to what we’ve been up to, welcome! We’re working through the seasons to find out what runs you love the most.

Vote on the other seasons here.

If you’ve been following along, jump on down and start voting. This time around, once again, we needed to break the runs into two brackets. The winner of the “main bracket” and the “baby bracket” will meet up in a final round. As always, there’s more information on the set up available at the bottom of the article.

Some of season nine’s match ups are intense. We can’t wait to see what you think!

Ground rules

  • We’re starting with season four in 2012.
  • That was the first season the show started traveling from location to location, and that the National Finals were held in Las Vegas. Also, we’re starting with this season because that’s as far back as we can find videos for the runs on one of the two different official YouTube accounts that archive them. This one with G4 and USA Network videos and this one with NBC videos.
  • The run has to have a video on one of those channels.
  • We feel it’s important for the voters to be able to watch the runs. That way, even if they weren’t watching way back in 2012, they can still participate in the vote. We realize this excludes buzzer runs that aren’t posted. The system is not perfect. We’ve accepted that.
  • They have to hit a buzzer.
  • There are many, MANY ways to qualify a run as great: If the person made history of some kind, if they overcame something, if they just really grit it out. But our mind exploded trying to figure out a bracket of polls that included ALL the runs, so we’re just talking about buzzers this time.
  • The match ups are pretty random.
  • They’re just related to how the videos are sorted on the YouTube pages. No other thought went into it. Oh well. :)
  • If an additional run is needed to balance the bracket, we’ll include the “Last Ninja Standing” run of that season. Think of it as a wildcard.
  • We’ll move through all the seasons, and then circle back through the rounds.
