The greatest buzzers in history: Season nine, round two

How do you pick between legends?

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

Ready for even more American Ninja Warrior voting? We’re back at season nine for round two! Remember that this round has two brackets. The winners will face one another in a final round.

We were fascinated by the first round of voting. It was mainly big Ninja names vs big Ninja names. Some results were close, which made sense. It’s hard to pick between some of these Ninjas! Some results were run-away winners, which we found a little surprising. Do you really like one Ninja’s performance that much more than another’s?

Let’s see what you do with round two of voting for season nine!

As always, there’s more info on how we set this up at the bottom of the article and you can vote on all the seasons here.

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.
