2017 THEME – FAITHFUL VS FALLEN
What’s a theme?
Every year at METROCON, we choose a “theme” that we use to theme our guests, events, entertainment and overall vibe at the convention. Since 2004, we’ve used a “Versus” theme, in the vein of great fan debates and awesome crossover series and games. Past versus themes have included Kawaii vs Kowaii, Anime vs Video Games, Light vs Dark, Sci Fi vs Fantasy, Ninja vs Samurai, Monsters vs Hunters, Agents vs Outlaws, East vs West, Old School vs New School, Brains vs Brawn, and Order vs Chaos.

2017 Theme – Faithful vs Fallen
This year’s theme for 2017 is Faithful vs Fallen – focusing on those great heroes of the light and the awesome villains who fell from grace, as well as everything in between.
So what does a convention with a theme mean? Well, it means that our signature convention shows like the Anime Human Chess Match, the METRO Fire Show, and all of the others will be themed with this in mind, to a certain extent. The Chess Match, especially, chooses the two sides of the match based on the theme!
We encourage fans to enjoy the theme, but we DEFINITELY won’t limit you – always feel free to cosplay any character you want (within our policies of course). We want to create an opportunity for cosplayers to maybe cosplay something they wouldn’t normally, think outside of the box, modify existing characters, or any other creativity that the theme might happen to encourage. Consider the theme an opportunity to be a part of a themed cosplay group or experience alongside 10,000+ of your new best friends.
