Update: Polling has ended and you can now find the final results after the jump.

Earlier: The Tekken 7 community has seen enormous growth over the past couple of years showing us all new ways to play the game like the recent explosion of the Pakistani scene, and with new challenges comes new demons to overcome as well.

Bandai Namco's character pool in their latest version of their flagship 3D fighter is about as wide as it is deep though some of the roster members are a good bit less fun to fight against than the others — especially in more recent times.

Akuma continues to be a powerful contender dating back to the game's release, and even after multiple balance changes, the demon still remains one of the most nerve-racking to do battle with.

It can feel like he's playing a different game at times considering Akuma's inclusion of the EX gauge from Street Fighter gives him access to greater damage and comeback potential than most if not all of the cast. Much of the same can be lobbed at Geese Howard as well.

Season 3 also introduced some troublemakers to the bunch with Leroy Smith dominating everything after he came out because he was just that strong. It feels like forever ago at this point, but six of the top 8 finalists mained the blind martial artist at EVO Japan earlier this year before he was hit with the nerf hammer on multiple occasions.

Fahkumram then became the poster boy of complaints from the community thanks in large part to his wonky hitboxes and hurtboxes though Bandai Namco has tried to iron that out as much as possible over the last few months.

That being said, the hulking fighter was apparently banned in Pakistan's tournaments for some time until he was adjusted.

With some of those perceived problems now largely addressed, that opens the door to who is now the least fun character to fight against.

We'll now turn that question back over to you all and ask you to vote below on who those destroyers of good times are below as we approach the new dawn of Season 4.
