The 2012 New Year's Fan Run Extravaganza was the third edition of the annual awards event of the Nuzlocke forums. The nomination period open on Nov. 18, 2012 and closed on Dec. 15. The polling then went from Dec. 26 to Jan. 4 with the official announcement of the winners given on Jan. 6, 2013.

Halfway through the nominations process, the eligibility rules were changed, allowing any given run to appear in multiple contests per group if that run received enough nominations to qualify for multiple contests. This is a change from the previous two Extravaganzas where run authors had to chose just one contest per group to participate in if they had enough nominations for multiple contests.

  • One run was eliminated from consideration during the nomination period due to the author promoting their run.
  • Thanks to the rule chance, Ken's FireRed Kick@$$ Mode was able to break all records both in nominations and in wins.
    • Both of Ken's FireRed Kick@$$ Mode's losses were to the same run, Kit's Platinum Nuzlocke. Those were the only two awards Kit's Platinum Nuzlocke contested.
