Another ranking is the Success Ranking. Every year the characters gain points for their success in the tournament. The winner (of the heavenly tiara) gains 1 point. The runner-up gains 1/2 = 0.5 points (two characters in the finals). The defeated semifinalists gain 1/4 = 0.25 points (four characters in the semi-finals). And so on. The defeated characters in the first round of the divisional finals gain 1/32 = 0.03125 points (32 characters in the first round). Characters who did not qualify for the Elimination Period gain 1/64 = 0.015625 points in 2008 and 2009, 1/50 = 0.02 points in 2010 and 2011 and 1/72 = 0.01388.. points in 2012 and 2013.
The following image shows the ranking of all 177 characters. Top 10: Misaka Mikoto, Tachibana Kanade, Gokō Ruri (Kuroneko), Shana, Katsura Hinagiku, Akiyama Mio, Fate Testarossa, Nagato Yuki, Eucliwood Hellscythe and Aisaka Taiga.
Yet another ranking is the Overall Wins Ranking (see: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=1593" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;). Its disadvantage is the different number of league matches per year. 63 in 2008 and 2009, 49 in 2010 and 2011 and 35 in 2012 and 2013.
A variation is the Overall Win Percentage Ranking (see: viewtopic.php?f=30&t=677&start=40#p200035" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; for my first thoughts on this ranking). 1 win in 2008 and 2009 is worth 1/63 = 0.015873..% , 1 win in 2010 and 2011 is worth 1/49 = 0.020408..% and 1 win in 2012 and 2013 is worth 1/35 = 0.028571..%.
The following image shows the ranking of all 177 characters. The win percentages are added together in the blue column.Top 10: Shana, Nagato Yuki, Suzumiya Haruhi, Katsura Hinagiku, Aisaka Taiga, Saber, Misaka Mikoto, Sakagami Tomoyo, Fujibayashi Kyō and Akiyama Mio
i) in the yellow column average win percentage per year - sum of the win percentages divided by the number of years. Top 10: Shiina Mashiro, Tachibana Kanade, Takanashi Rikka, Gokō Ruri (Kuroneko), Shana, Kuroyukihime, Yūki Asuna, Aisaka Taiga, Eucliwood Hellscythe and Akiyama Mio
ii) in the green column average win percentage overall - sum of wins divided by the sum of matches. Top 10: Shiina Mashiro, Tachibana Kanade, Takanashi Rikka, Gokō Ruri (Kuroneko), Shana, Kuroyukihime, Yūki Asuna, Aisaka Taiga, Akiyama Mio and Eucliwood Hellscythe
For some characters, there are large differences between the two averages. Some characters were successful in the past (63 matches per year) and unsuccessful in the present (35 matches per year). In this case the overall average is higher than the per year average - for example Fujibayashi Kyō, Holo and Ichinose Kotomi (more than 5 percentage points difference each). Few characters were unsuccessful in the past and successful in the present. In this case the per year average is higher than the overall average - for example Misaka Mikoto (4.30 percentage points difference)
All ranking systems have advantages and disadvantages. I would like to start a discussion about rankings, alltimetables and relative tables.
