PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Sync might be quicker with his hands, but Grimmjow is tougher and can fly.
Nu 13 Aschen Brodel
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Much like Haken, I wanted to put Aschen in one of these. This was my selection
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Preliminary only in that my research on Nu isn't finished as well as the SRW series where Aschen's program originated so I can find out what she's made from. However, given what I've seen this is the 2nd closest battle I've done. Right now the ball is in Aschen's court and only barely so.
41st Round: Battle of the Boobs
Satellizer el Bridget Rangiku Matsumoto
REASON FOR FIGHTING: These blondes have the biggest busts in anime I know. This will define the term "Boobs of Steel" properly.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Satellizer is known as the untouchable queen and has a determination that is incorruptable. She has survived getting a leg chopped off and taken damage similar to what the Bleach cast has handled. Accel Turn will even keep her on par with Rangiku's Shunpo. That said, even all that considered, Rangiku is a professional with way more experience than Satellizer. Also, the Bleach universe law of reiatsu will minimize the damage Rangiku will take from Satellizer. Also, Rangiku is a vice-captain, she's so strong that at her full power she would negatively affect the living world. Satellizer will put up a good fight and her determination and willpower will keep her in for much longer, but Rangiku will get her to stay down. That's my current opinion.
42nd Round: Battle of the Brats
Annie & Tibbers Anise Tatlin & Tokunaga
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Two pre-pubescent girls with giant plushies as partners. I can't stand either one of them. Let's make them beat the shit out of each other.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While Anise is at least twice Annie's age, Annie is a child prodigy, having obtained Tibbers when she was 2. Furthermore, Annie can summon Tibbers as much as she likes. If Anise loses Tokunaga he can't come back. Furthermore, Anise has no skill in combat without Tokunaga while Annie has no problem going solo.
43rd Round: Plant People
Pamela Isley (Poison Ivy) Zyra, Rise of the Thorns
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Zyra borrows her inspiration from Poison Ivy, but can she beat her?
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: None at the moment. My research on Ivy is stunted and for me to say anything right now would only be me talking as a biased fanboy of my favorite League of Legends female that I want to do naughty things to. It all hinges on whether or not Ivy has better control over plant-life than Zyra. Barring that, Zyra will take home the victory
44th Round: League of Ebil
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Zorbak is Ebil and Veigar isn't taken seriously. Do not let that picture fool you. This will be certainly one of the most comedic battles I've done
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While Zorbak certainly can summon the legion of the dead, that's just farming for Veigar, which every leaguer knows you do NOT want to do. Once Baleful strike is powered up, Veigar can do a lot of damage to Zorbak. While the blue rat can heal himself, he also has a high intellect, which makes him vulnerable to Veigar's Primordial Burst. For once, Veigar will have a legitimate victory. It's unfortunate that victory will be over the Team Rocket equivalent of the AQ universe.
45th Round: Guns of Light
Legretta the Quick Lucian
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Legretta is a light-based fighter with dual handguns that fire fragments of light. She is quick on her feet and one of the best fighters in the Six-god Generals. Lucian fires laser blasts from his handguns and has much the same fighting style as Legretta.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Without knowing what Legretta's skills are (not that she could have many being an antagonist) Lucian's guns are much more powerful than hers and his "The Culling" is more than a match for Legretta's "Prism Ballet". It only matters now who the quicker shot is and which one of them can move faster and which one of them can take hits better. Also, Lucian's attacks consume mana while Legretta never seems to run out of ammo. This is also a factor to be considered.
46th Round: World devouring abominations
REASON FOR FIGHTING: I wanted an excuse to use Cho'Gath. Apparently his Feral Scream's output at full power is reason enough to let him fight this MOFO.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Cho'Gath's Feral Scream, according to his Battlecast prime skin, reaches Exotons of force. While all leaguers have some limitations or another while fighting, Cho'Gath not only has been willfully limited for his own amusement, but he also isn't taking the fighting seriously. the league THINKS they have him under lock and key, but he will kill them all if they do not prove entertaining. Like all void creatures--and like Kirby--Cho'Gath adapts to whatever he can consume, a bit of munching on Frieza's flesh and Cho'Gath can adapt better to Frieza's attacks. Since Cho'Gath will already be at full power from the onset, it's only a matter of time before the world conqueror is feeling the hurt. Sadly, Frieza can blow up planets willingly and even though Cho'Gath can live in a boundary between dimensions (which means he can breathe in space), all the power in the world won't stop this world devouring abomination from complete and total disintegration.
47th Round: Lunacy
Princess Luna Diana
REASON FOR FIGHTING: I had Celestia fight before, people have asked me to use Luna. I want the Scion of the Moon to fight it's Equestrian ruler. When Diana sees what Luna is, she'll freak.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Like with Celestia, it's obvious Luna will have high level magic like beams, temperature control with an eclipse, and also dark magic with her nightmare moon form. There's also her own hindquarters and her ability to fly to consider as well. Diana, being just a normal human with considerable power will be hard pressed to fight a magic-using flying horse...er pony. However, I predict that this will wind up turning out like Bison Vs Shao Khan. Diana, using moon magic isn't exactly the best idea against the one who manipulates the celestial body itself.
48th Round: Machinations
Carl Clover Orianna
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Both Orianna and Nirvana have similar connections to the humans they're based from. Ball and Carl are just add-ons even though Carl will be doing most of the fighting
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While Orianna certainly has free reign while Nirvana follows Carl's orders. Because Ball is just an object and not a living being, Orianna can get two-pronged while Carl and Nirvana have teamwork on their side.
49th Round: Mad Science
Mayuri Kurotsuchi Doctor Mundo
REASON FOR FIGHTING: These twisted sons of bitches see all the world as a lab experiment, including themselves
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: .....................I want Mundo to win. I really want Mundo to win, but he doesn't have the proper tools for dealing with Mayuri's arsenal. Sadistic fuck though he is, Mundo doesn't have any drugs to counter Mayuri's Ashisogi Jizou to get his limbs working again and Konjiki Ashisogi Jizou will just make things even worse for poor Mundo. Even considering Burning Agony, Mayuri never fights at close range and always uses trick after deception to win. If he doesn't outright kill the sadomasochistic fuck he'll take him as a lab experiment.........at Mundo's own request.
50th Round: Master of the Sword
Erza Scarlet Roronora Zoro
REASON FOR DOING: Time to shut the fandom up once and for all. With Mashima taking inspiration from One Piece and Oda being his idol and all, has the student bested the master or is the king of storytelling also the king of character creation?
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: At present the ball is in Erza's court. I need to see what Zoro's upper limits are before I render a final verdict. To make things fair I will ONLY be using manga abilities. The anime will only be used to verify a character's skill, but will not be used to determine it.
51st Round: Personal Nostalgic Battle
Danny Phantom Starfire
REASON FOR FIGHTING: I have wanted to do this one ever since I thought of it just because of the nostalgic value it holds to me
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: So that Danny does not become one with the other side in record time, I'll only be using Starfire from the cartoon series that aired on Cartoon Network. THE GOOD ONE! Even with that said, the poor ghost boy, I don't think, stands a chance. Danny's intangibility and invisibility will certainly keep Star at bay for a while and his body merging powers might help him make Star self-destruct, but Starfire is a lot faster than Danny, has more than enough in her arsenal to keep HIM at bay. Plus, Star's stamina is a lot better than his. Although her Tamaranian strength will avail her little given Danny's intangibility, it's her alien durability and control over her powers that will win her the day. Danny, even by series end, still struggles to maintain in his ghost form (Just look at the movie with Freakshow where he transforms in front of his entire school). Danny's Ghostly Wail, though a powerful last resort, is non-lethal even to his own enemies so it's likely it won't be enough to kill or incapacitate Starfire for long. Even if he could take over Starfire's body, her willpower wouldn't allow him to stay in it long enough to do any real self-damage. Still, the fight is going to be worth it JUST to see Danny take over yet another
girl's body on purpose.
52nd Round: An idea half-owed to
Mikasa Ackerman Simon Blackquill
REASON FOR FIGHTING: This fight was suggested to me.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: I'm going to rewatch a little of Attack on Titan and research Iajitsu, but this is going to be a case of losing the battle to win the war. Or, to put it another way, letting go of the early game, to turn the tide at the very end. Mikasa is going to dominate the battlefield right at the very start. Her maneuver gear will let her zip around the battlefield with ease, taking potshots at Simon as she zips right by him. However, Simon is said to be a proper wielder with a katana and so it wouldn't be a stretch to say he knows how to properly dodge an incoming attack. The man has reflexes enough to precisely slice a falling feather out of the air from halfway across a courtroom with his BARE HANDS! The real question isn't can he hold a candle to Mikasa's maneuver gear, but whether or not he can survive its advantage before he either cuts the cable or Mikasa runs out of gas. If it was Levi he was up against, the fight would be over faster than Simon could blink given Levi's experience. With Mikasa though, the girl is still a trained soldier, but also more on Simon's level. Her level however happens to be just a little too underleveled to actually pull off a victory. Mikasa is trained to fight 15-meter tall titans, not other humans. While Levi has the preciseness to properly cut down his own kin while moving at high speeds, there's nothing to suggest that Mikasa has the same. It's her inexperience and lack of tactical knowledge that will lose her the fight, but she will put up a good one to be sure.
53rd Round: Dark Magic
Syndra, the Dark Sovereign Aversa
REASON FOR FIGHTING: These two have a LOT in common. They're both dark magic users, plucked from a village where they both were said to be considerably gifted in the ways of magic. Both of them also have white hair and a nice rack while wearing lots of leather. However, the core of their character is considerably different. Aversa (MAJOR SPOILER) seeks to atone for the things she's done while Syndra continues to chase ultimate power even to this day and will kill anyone who gets in her way.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Aversa might have command over Goetia, Mire, and her own specialty Aversa's Night, but Syndra has the telekinetic power to lift an entire castle. Furthermore, Syndra has the better accuracy game, could use Aversa's own mount against her and is the only one of the two with any ability to stun the other.
54th Round: Dragons Again
Grima, the Fell Dragon Acnologia
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Ever since Alduin Vs the Archdemon, a few people have asked me to use Acnologia. Well, I hope you're not disappointed.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: While we still haven't seen what Acnologia is truly capable of, like with Due, Grima only comes from one game and I've analyzed the shit out of him already. Acnologia, like Godzilla, is considerably lacking in size against his opponent, but we saw how well that
worked out for the Archdemon now didn't we? However, Grima's massive size isn't the only thing he has over Acnologia. He has the mind of the game's best tactician and dark magic that spews 10 feet high and 25-30 feet forward. He also has his dragonskin to reduce damage and his forboding aura to nullify automatic counter attacks. Even the Divine Dragon power of Tiki is not ultra effective against this monster. Acnologia has MORE than the power to combat this behemoth, the real question is whether or not he has the other stats to match.
55th Round: Armored and Cloaked Emperors
Doctor Doom Darth Vader
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Both Doom and Vader have horrible burns and were forced to cover their faces. They also have similar histories. They are both high ranking villians. Doom is the ruler of Latveria and Vader is the leader of Emperor Palpatine's forces. Both wear a cape and both wear a helmet. And both have similar secondary powers outside Doom's doom bots and Vader's light saber
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Vader's lightsaber is more than capable of slicing through Doctor Doom without effort. However, that's only if he gets the chance. Considering Doom's affinity for Doom bots and higher strategic mind there's not a high chance of Vader surviving long enough to make sure that his lightsaber kills the real doom. Vader's force powers will only avail him enough to keep Doom at bay, which is more than can be said for a lot of people that you could put up against Doctor Doom.
56th Round: Spider People
Elise, the Spider Queen Peter Parker, the Spiderman
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Elise is just like Spiderman only female...except she's more of a spider than he is. She's also a mage and she can use's a spider's toxin and even BECOME a giant black widow spider. Also, since Spidey's spider sense is apparently inherent from actual spiders then it stands to reason that Elise would have one too. This would make her one of the toughest enemies that Spidey has ever faced and he's getting NO prep time.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Although Elise has more tricks up her sleeve, her durability leaves something to be desired. I need to do more research on neurotoxin and spider venom and Spidey's resistance to such things, but right now my money is on the web head for hand-to-hand advantages and so much durability it makes Elise look like a poppable balloon.
57th Round: Stoic badassery (requested by
Byakuya Kuchiki Sesshomaru
REASON FOR FIGHTING:
Hei d00d, these two gais are so similar to each other. I want to see them fight.
Holy crap they are. And you know...this fight looks pretty even. This is totally worth doing.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: It'll take me a while to comb back through Bleach and then spend time wagering tactics and X-factors (especially where Tenseiga is concerned) but right now I'd say Byakuya has an advantage. Sesshomaru's best weapon, Bakusaiga, won't work tremendously effectively against something like Byakuya's Senbonzakura Kageyoshi since they aren't part of Byakuya's body and are just a bunch of tiny blades. In Shikai, Byakuya will never be able to handle Sesshoumaru. He'll need Bankai. The problem is Byakuya has range and versatility and when you have options, you have a victory. Even if I allowed Sesshomaru to have Meidou Zangetsuha for this fight, I don't doubt the outcome will be any different. Sesshoumaru has always been superior, never before has he fought an opponent he didn't consider beneath him. Byakuya was not only humbled by Ichigo but in recent times was shredded by his own weapon. Byakuya's best chance to kill Sesshomaru will be his Gokei Senbonzakura Kageyoshi. Of course, Sesshomaru has his own advantages as well. If he can get into close range--which Byakuya has admitted is Senbonzakura's weakness--he can easily win the fight since any of his deadliest attacks are instant kills if they land direct hits upon Byakuya and even he can't sustain his body with a giant dog yokai bite in his shoulder that is probably poisonous. Ultimately this battle might not even be decided by swords. And those are my current thoughts.
Ryuko Matoi Inuyasha
REASON FOR FIGHTING: Because I've wanted to put Ryuko in a fight for the longest time now ever since I saw Kill la Kill. I decided that Inuyasha would be her best opponent in terms of someone "on her level"
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: One thing worth noting is that Ryuko's scissor blade will easily be able to cut through Inuyasha protective robe just because of what it is. Ryuko's greatest strength is her ungodly durability (people who have seen the show will understand what I mean). Inuyasha's greatest weapon against Ryuko is the Meidou Zangetsuha and the diamond attack (forgot the exact spelling). The Dragon Scaled Tessaiga could also be a prominent factor since it's possible it might be able to absorb Ryuko's life fibers directly. Ryuko's other big advantage is speed since she can fly with the speed of what appears to be a jet engine and she can cover herself in spikes. Her battle with Inuyasha will no doubt be the toughest she's gone up against. For Inuyasha it will simply be a case of "Why won't you die?" This is probably going to be my favorite battle to write since, after doing my preliminary predictions Ryuko only BARELY WINS. Like we're talking Link Vs Cloud levels of BARELY WINS. Inuyasha might not be as strong, durable or fast as her, but anything he has in his arsenal can properly counter Ryuko's advantages, especially the Meidou Zangetsuha. Still, I have much research to do on this fight and I am definitely looking forward to it.
59th Round: Overly Large Swords
REASON FOR DOING: I hear this one is a rather popular debate. I'm all for ending popular debates about characters I know.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: There's one important thing we have to remember about this fight: only one of our combatants is human. Nightmare is just a soul in a suit of armor...for the most part. Furthermore, Guts fights abominations like Nightmare all the time, but with the abominable power that is Soul Edge, could Guts' equipment actually trump one of the most powerful entities in the SC canon? Even if
will disagree with me (he's my co-researcher/writer) I say Guts could actually take this. Nightmare's only real advantage over Guts is the fact that his sword is sharper. Guts has every bit of extra strength than Nightmare, plus there's his literal hand cannon. Also, if Guts managed to defeat Nightmare's body, the chances of him getting possessed by Soul Edge are low since he repels demons and the like from his body on a regular basis. True, Soul Edge is on a whole different level, but the chances are significantly lowered. Furthermore, Guts' tactics are a lot wiser than Nightmare's who is pretty much a lot less intelligent than many of Guts' former enemies. And that's not even considering Guts having a pyrric victory by using the power of his Berserk Armor. Ultimately though I need to do more research on Nightmare, but I'm currently under the impression that Guts has what it takes to win.
60th Round: Aliens Among Us
REASON FOR DOING: Kha'zix is an expy of the Xenomorph.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Before anyone asks: no, I don't intend to do a battle between Rengar and the Predator. The Predator is wearing futuristic armor, has superior weaponry and superior range. Rengar's only ranged weapon is a bola. The furry hunter is SCREWED. On the flip side though, Kha'zix, while better armed than the Xenomorph at a glance, struggled to actually defeat Rengar, a point against the void creature. And, as we all know, good old acid for blood is NOT to be trifled with. That said, I'm presently giving this to the Xenomorph. I need to do more research sure, but that thing is NOT nice.
61st Round: Demon Hunters
Dante Mana Tatsumiya
REASON FOR DOING: I wanted to give Dante a chance to redeem himself. I felt Mirajane would be the opponent best suited for him.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Based on what I know about both combatants, Mirajane has the close quarter's combat won out. I need to refresh myself to her limitations because if she can survive rockets she'll have an advantage. However, I need to do research on Dante's Majin form and how much of an advantage it would give him. Until such a time as I have finished my research, I'm throwing my hat into the ring for Mirajane.
62nd Round: Red Head Assassin
Katarina Black Widow
REASON FOR DOING: Both of these characters are assassins of the highest caliber in their respective organizations. They are also known for wearing black, skin tight outfits, and they have red hair.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: There's a reason Natasha Romanov aka Black Widow is known as "The Human Pretzel" amongst some fans. She's a contortionist and also adept enough in combat to consistently beat Captain America. While Katarina also contends with a large, muscled, dim-witted soldier, Natasha also has a larger bag of tricks and she has MUCH more fighting experience, not to mention early career efficiency. I mean there's a reason Katarina got that scar after all. While Katarina has SOME things going for her like the speed advantage, I think Natasha simply has her outgunned, quite literally in fact, but we'll see what my full research procures.
63rd Round: Swords and Sorcery
Luke fan Fabre Robin
REASON FOR DOING: While Luke technically
doesn't have sorcery, he still has Fonic Artes, which, if Robin were to miss with his spells, will create fields of fonons during the battle, making this fight rather interesting. Also, Robin uses a magic sword while Luke's, though magically crafted possibly, has no range potential. Still, I really want to use Luke and this was the best I came up with. I originally thought Meta Knight, but since we know "he's a Kirby" it's really not fair...to Luke. No. Seriously. Go look up Death Analysis Kirby and you'll see just how much of a pummeling the puffball species can take.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Luke. While Robin DOES have magic and range potential on his side, Luke is just far more durable when you consider their respective canons. Even with Ignis, while I think Robin will put up a decent fight, I just feel Luke has a MUCH higher chance of winning one on one since almost all of FEA was centered around team efforts. Also, while I don't know if I'll be settling on male or female Robin it will hardly matter in the long run. Whatever helps me tell a story better will be what I settle on. Who knows, I might not even use the standard appearance for the character.
64th Round: Back From the Dead
Sosuke Aizen Yuuki Terumi
REASON FOR DOING: I think Aizen deserves a fair shake after he was obliterated by Dormammu. Terumi, for all intents and purposes I actually thought was going to WIN against Alucard until I did some research. So, since a few of my friends voted on it, here it is, a fight between two absolute assholes of equal caliber....oh who am I kidding, Terumi is far more entertaining and infuriating. But is he more powerful? Well, that's why we're here.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Terumi has no ready counter for Aizen's illusions. However, I don't think that should count him out of the fight immediately. After all, Aizen has to ACTUALLY GET TERUMI TO SEE HIS RELEASE to get Terumi to even by affected by Kyoka Suigetsu and I believe Aizen will have his hands full until the fight gets to that point. Even when it does, I still have to do a fair bit of research on Terumi because it's possible he could actually turn the tide despite
Kyoka Suigetsu, but I'll have to see. Aizen's certainly no Alucard and Terumi is certainly no Dorm. However, in the end, both of these assholes deserve worse than the pain and suffering they'll be doling out to each other. Still, since I have to pick the best of the worst, as I already said: Aizen since Terumi has no readily known counter for Kyoka Suigetsu.
65th Round: Boss Rage
Tabuu Master Core
REASON FOR DOING: Tabuu was the Final Boss of the Subspace Emissary in Brawl. Master Core is the unique boss you face on intensity 5.1 or higher in Classic mode Smash Bros 4. As both characters are unique to the series and unless Smash Bros 5 includes both of them, it's likely they will never encounter each other. So that begs the question: which of these absolute cheap ass final bosses is stronger and more deadly?
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Tabuu has a lot more in his arsenal than Master Core and actually single handedly put down Master Hand. Master CORE is birthed from Master Hand or...something like that, I don't know. So, despite being newer, I don't think this cheaper boss is going to be able to party like its 2008. After all, there's a REASON you get 6 lives to beat Tabuu and only 2 to defeat MC.
66th Round: Puzzle solving
Professor Layton Kaito Daimon
REASON FOR DOING: After completing the Professor Layton crossover with Phoenix Wright I decided to have Professor Layton take a stand against a rival who is his equal in puzzle solving: Daimon Kaito from Phi Brain.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Since, obviously, neither character would kill the other and this is a "puzzle battle", the idea is that Kaito and Layton will have to compete against each other FOR THEIR LIVES! In short, some cartoonishly evil villain from the Phi Brain universe tricks Kaito and Layton in competing against each other in a Fool's Puzzle. For non-Phi Brain fans this means a puzzle in which the only reward for solving it is your life and failure to do so means death. The winner will be determined by "Who is better under pressure" "who is intellectually superior" "who has more experience solving puzzles" "the hardest puzzle both have solved" "the average difficulty of the puzzles both have solved" "who is more athletic". Even with my limited knowledge of Layton, I have no doubt that he'll actually manage to stay half a step ahead of Kaito. He's older, has more experience and MUCH calmer under pressure than Kaito. Of course, I've yet to see the professor in a life or death situation so this is subject to change. But, for Layton fans, this is a good sign if the limited knowledge I have of the character is superior to a character I'm more familiar with. It shows a lack of bias.
67th Round: Hunter/Titans
Eren Jaeger Gnar
REASON FOR DOING: Eren and Gnar both are hunters in their smaller state. In their transformed states, both of them lose all reasoning and logic and become mindless beasts hellbent on destruction.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Although Gnar is a resourceful hunter and has the strength to break True Ice, I don't think he has what it takes to defeat Eren. While he has range over Eren at the start with his boomerang, Eren has much more maneuverability with his 3D maneuver gear. The proper location for battle would be a forest, plenty of use for the gear and home field advantage for Gnar. In a close range battle, Eren, as a human, towers over poor Gnar and could punt the little thing if it got too annoying. Mega Gnar will certainly put up a hell of a fight as it tries to maul Eren's face off, but Eren's titan form is FIFTEEN METERS TALL. I'm PRETTY sure Mega Gnar is barely 4 meters. Eren has defeated titans of similar sizes without breaking a sweat. Also, Eren's titan form only has one weakness, which I'm not sure Gnar could hope to figure out. However, Eren is not a complete titan, so Gnar will definitely slow him down a bit given how savage and relentless he is. However, the biggest point AGAINST Gnar is that his transformation is temporary and comes in waves. Once Eren goes into titan form there isn't much that can stop him. It's kill or be killed. Score one for the human race in my opinion, but that remains to be seen.
68th Round: Princess Grudge Match
Princess Daisy Rosalina
REASON FOR DOING: For those of you unfamiliar with Nintendo's history. A long time ago, Super Mario Land was released for the Game Boy. It introduced a new Princess into the mix Princess Daisy. She was later defined as "The Tomboy Princess" making her first console appearance on the N64 in Mario Party 3 as a playable character. She would later appear in many sports games and was even a palette swap for Peach in Super Smash Bros Melee and Brawl. THEN, Super Mario Galaxy was released and introduced the lovely dame on the right, Rosalina. Since then, for reasons I'm not yet certain about--though I can kind of guess--Rosalina took the Mario fanbase by STORM. Rosalina has appeared in almost every Mario game since her release including Super Mario 3D world, Mario Kart Wii and the 3DS Mario Golf. And yet, Daisy is left hung out to dry in the more mainstream Mario titles, left to sit on the sidelines except in sports. Also, given a few of
and this one:
You'd start to think that perhaps Daisy isn't too happy about this new female character who hasn't even been around for 10 years in the Mario fandom getting more attention that she deserves. It feels like Nintendo is neglecting the tomboy princess either by accident or on purpose. And, if the latter, I think it's high time this unknown rivalry came to head. This is a battle that MUST happen.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Since obviously Rosalina will be without her Luma aid for this bout, I can only take into consideration what she is capable of doing on her own. Well for one she can levitate and protect minature galaxies with that little wand of hers. And apparently she's fitting an entirely galaxy up her dress. (Don't ask). Still, Daisy still has years of experience with Tennis, Baseball, Mario Party and, most importantly of all, Soccer. Being a fan of both characters--albeit finding Rosalina far more attractive--I'm going to have to give the initial advantage to Daisy for simply being around longer. However, for all I know once my research is complete, Rosalina could prove too much for this grudge holding tomboy. However, even if this is a bigger power gap than Raiden and Thor, this is a spectacle to be sure. REGARDLESS of the outcome you can bet your asses I am going to do this.......unless Death Battle beats me to it.
69th Round: Boy geniuses
Dexter Jimmy Neutron
REASON FOR DOING: These two are the biggest child geniuses of my childhood. Forget Jimmy/Timmy Power Hour. This is where the real action is.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Dexter. His shit actually works.
70th Round: Fictional Fictional Heroes
Major Glory Crimson Chin
REASON FOR DOING: I saw someone post this on DeviantART. If Death Battle doesn't do it, I certainly will.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: The Crimson Chin actually has experience fighting and defeating criminals on a regular basis and is an actual comic book character. Major Glory--while awesome in his own right--is a parody. Blatant hostess fruit pies ripoff much?
71st Round: Combat Sadism
Juri Han Minerva Orlando
REASON FOR DOING: Let's just say that after the rough treatment Juri got in One Minute Melee I wanted to use her for one of these now more than ever. Minerva is similar to Juri in terms of combat sadism and all around bitchy personality and if you stop and examine them they look just a TAD similar--though Minerva clearly has the bigger bust.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: That said, I feel I might just wind up making things even worse for Juri
. Minerva's territory magic is no joke and will give her considerable control over the battlefield. That said, Minerva's territory magic requires line of sight and this being Juri, she'd go the extra mile to blind Minerva by digging her fingernails into her eye sockets. Juri's batshit craziness and more experience might give her the win, especially
given her amazing track record of ass kicking. That said, until I do more research, I'm currently giving the edge to Miss Orlando.
72nd Round: Sword and Shield
Sir Tathlin Leona
REASON FOR DOING: While Artix is much more the "paladin" type when compared to Leona, both Tathlin and Leona have similar movesets with shield bashing and solar rays and each is a respectable character in their own right with a history of another faction of creatures--demons for Tathlin, the Lunari for Leona--standing in their way with their own merits. Where they differ is that Tathlin is racist while Leona seems to act only because Diana won't listen to reason. A clash such as theirs would be a spectacle to see to say the least. One thing I CAN'T say about Tathlin is that he's sexist towards women.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Based on what I know about both characters, I think Tathlin has this simply for the more effective armor and movepool.
73rd Round: Iron Maiden
Kagura Mikazuchi Arturia Pendragon
REASON FOR DOING: Before I begin let me say that since Fate/Zero made no effort to hide that Saber = Genderbent King Arthur and it's now more popular than the original 2006 Fate/Stay Night will ever be, I'm calling Saber as she is for announcement purposes, but I'll refer to her as Saber for the sake of ease. That said, Saber and Kagura are both stoic badass women of basically a showdown between the fantastical version of a Samurai and the fantastical version of a knight, the KING of knights to be exact. It's not a popular matchup sure, but the moment I thought of it, I felt it was too good an opportunity to pass up.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Kagura's gravity magic is going to make life HELL for Saber, but Saber is naturally tougher and faster than Kagura so she's going to need a handicap. Saber's Excalibur is also the perfect FOIL to Kagura's Archenemy as both are of comparable power. That said, I see the king of knights taking this bout simply because it's freaking Saber!
74th Round: Need for Speed
Sonic the Hedgehog Rainbow Dash
REASON FOR DOING: Because people won't shut up about this idea.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: Do I REALLY need to say it? I love RD, she's my favorite member of the mane six, but there is NO WAY! IN HELL! that she is going to stand up to the almighty Super Sonic. Barring that transformation this fight is relatively fair since each combatant brings some unique abilities to the table like Rainbow Dash's trademark Sonic RainNuke, but Good LORD, is she screwed the minute Sonic ups the ante with the Chaos Emeralds.
75th Round: The Chessmaster
Zero (Lelouch vi Britannia) Kira (Light Yagami)
REASON FOR DOING: There have been so many fanfics out there constructing a plot to pit these two anti-heroes against each other. Many people pick their favorite to win, many people sometimes make one or both act out of character in order to make ends meet for a victory by one or both that is purely plot constructed. But between both of these two masters of "all according to plan" which one is deadliest? Which one has the capacity to completely psych out the other and ultimately bring about the downfall of what many consider their greatest adversary.
PRELIMINARY PREDICTIONS: In a gladiatorial style matchup, Light stands no chance in hell. But what about a more underhanded matchup? These two are chessmasters, so it's better if we have them planning against each other than just standing in a field zero prep time. It basically forces me to ask who is the better researcher, the better critical thinker and who has the better chance of gambitting the other person into a corner and ultimately offing them. If we give the characters their whole arsenal at their disposal, I.e Lelouch has the black knights and Light is in with the police force (which he was after a certain time), it then falls on both protagonists to identify the true nature of the enemy culprit and then manage to corner and kill them. While this has the potential to swing in the favor of either protagonist, both of which having creative ways of ending the other, I'm still going to toss my hat into the ring with Lelouch simply due to the fact that Light really does have a 50% shot of killing Lelouch unless he figures out both names and while both have to unmask the other, if they have some way of narrowing their search, they could mow down the area and Light only has a small police force at his disposal, while Lelouch has an entire army with which to crush Kira. True, there are other factors I have to examine: which one is easier to unmask? When in continuity should this take place (since it will change the playing field considerably if Suzaku is Lelouch's enemy, L is skulking about and/or Misa is still the 2nd Kira or if Mikami is). And that's what makes it interesting. Could my favorite character of all time be outmatched? Let us see what fate foretells.
And that's currently all I have for now. At this moment in time I am currently taking no future suggestions until I've freed up some space in the queue. This journal is so large it almost hits DA's 60KB limit. So until then, keep an eye on the completed rounds to get your WWW fuel.
