- "On the 25th anniversary, as a reminder to the rebels that their children were dying because of their choice to initiate violence, every district was made to hold an election and vote on the tributes that who would represent it."
- ―President Snow relaying the details of the 25th Hunger Games in Catching Fire
A young Coriolanus Snow folds out a piece of paper, saying that the tributes this year will have to be chosen from their district, as a sign to let the districts know that they sacrifice their children to fight in the rebellion. Katniss and Peeta see the announcement of these Games before The 75th Hunger Games, the last Quarter Quell. During this time, her odds of winning were 9-1, and the Head Gamemaker this year was Bern Halloway.
The arena had a more prehistoric theme to it. The sky was blood red, the plants were very large, and there were also dinosaur mutts.
Zenobia won thanks to her kills in sword fighting and throwing spears, in which she both used to kill enemies on the 1st day, 3rd day, 5th day, 6th day, and the 7th. She also got help by siding with the careers, since she was a very valuable asset in their team. With a fraction of their team left after days later, the finale of the Games began. There were asteroids coming from the sky, killing the remaining people, except for Zenobia, which is why she won at the end.
