The King for a Day Tournament Break was a break caused by a strike given to the channel in mid-2018 during which the SiIvaGunner team created the King for a Day Tournament, premiering immediately after this break.

Summary[1][2][edit | edit source]

In July 2018, the 2016 rip "Color Power - Yellow Drill - Sonic Colors" was removed for violating community guidelines, giving the channel its second community strike. The rip "Oil Ocean Zone Act 1 (OST Version) - Sonic Mania" was the end of the backlog (with one specifically-timed exception), so the channel had no choice but to go on a break.

However, Ethan64Music realized that the channel could still use YouTube's community tab to post updates, so the team thought of a way to use this to their advantage, and on July 15 the team made an announcement via community post and tweet thread asking viewers to send their character ideas for the tournament.

Over the rest of the break, the channel began revealing the characters who would be participating on their community tab and Twitter.

In addition to spawning the King for a Day Tournament, this break also pushed a planned Gangnam Style 6th Anniversary event forward, turning it into the Daddy 3rd Anniversary event.[3]

Tweets[edit | edit source]

(Note: Due to the channel's termination in 2019, the community posts were deleted, so they can't be archived.)
