Miroku Vs. Darksol

I am just going to assume you know who they both are. I mean, come on, why not?

For the sake of recap though:

Miroku is a monk who likes the ladies, a skilled fighter… oh and he also has the ability to suck enemies into a vortex in his hand. This will eventually kill him, and yadda yadda yadda. But for now, it just vaporizes his enemies, most of which are demons.

Darksol is, basically, a demon of sorts. They call him a devil and his power is so great that he has returned to life at least twice. Each time, threatening the entire world with his evil magic.

Miroku would be hard-pressed to actually defeat Darksol alone. In my mind, he would need some serious help to do so in terms of battle prowess and physical strength (Where is Inuyasha when you need him? Probably with Kagome).

Miroku has the ace up his sleeve, his Wind Tunnel. It can suck in objects over 1,500 lbs from over a hundred feet away.

I would actually really like to be able to see this battle, it would be interesting.

——————————————————————————————————-

If it were to happen, it could look something like this:

By some unknown means, Miroku is transported to the world of Shining Force in the land of Rune. While trying to get his bearings, he notices smoke in the sky and realizes that it is coming from a large town nearby. Sensing the presence of evil, Miroku races to the town to help however he can. As he approaches the town, he sees all manner of evil creatures attacking the city. Countless lie dead, and the survivors are fleeing in terror. He has never seen creatures quite like this, but resolves that he must destroy them. Miroku easily defeats many of the attacking monsters, but becomes surrounded. Having no alternative, he unleashes the power of his Wind Tunnel, destroying all of his assailants.

Intrigued by the stranger’s considerable powers, Darksol himself appears in the town centre. A black mist surrounds the devil king, and dread permeates the very air around him. “Your power is considerable, stranger,” he says in his cold, grating voice. His very words seem to tax Miroku’s senses, grating on his will. ” I am Darksol. I do not know who you are, but I am afraid you must die. But before that happens, might I know your name?” A wicked grin crawls across the devil’s face.

Miroku’s pulse quickens. Darksol’s crimson eyes blaze like hell fire, boring into his soul. Pushing down the feelings of dread and despair that rolled off of the devil king, and bravely locks eyes with him. “I am Miroku, demon… I am not afraid to die. But I may just surprise you.”

An eerie, spectral laugh splits the air as Darksol expresses his amusement, making the very air crackle with dark energy. Miroku quickly pulls several Jufu Talismans from his robes with power against evil. The paper glows a dull purple color, and he flings them at Darksol. The devil raises a barrier to defend himself. A grunt of surprise escapes the villain’s throat as the Sutras slice through his barrier, striking him in multiple places, and giving him mild burns.

Darksol growls, and begins to conjure a powerful spell, black energy swirls around him like a wind, Miroku crouches to keep himself from being blown off of his feet. Suddenly, a black hand lunges forward, grasping at Miroku’s right wrist.

Dread flows into the monk’s body, sapping his strength and willpower. “No!” He cries out, he quickly begins to feel that he is losing hope, faith, even the will to live. Darksol moves his hand to Miroku’s throat and lifts him from the ground.

“You are a spirited little thing, but now you will die.” Darksol states flatly, slowly beginning to choke the life from him. Miroku struggles to loose the rosary on his right hand. “What is it you are doing little monk? You want your precious little beads? They will not help you.” The demon laughs again, pulling the rosary from his victim’s hand and tossing it aside. However, in doing this, he unknowingly released the full force of Miroku’s Wind Tunnel.

“What?! NOOOO!” Darksol screams as the vortex threatens to consume him. Throwing Miroku to the ground, once again the devil calls upon his dark magics, shielding himself from the wind tunnel, and releasing a venomous dark mist into it. This dark energy fills Miroku’s body and mind are filled with an almost blinding pain.

Willing himself to his feet, Miroku levels his hand at Darksol, sucking in all that the devil has to offer. “You…will not…kill me…demon!” Blood begins to seep from the monk’s face and he growls in determination.

Darksol screams in pain as the wind tunnel begins to rip pieces of armor off of his body, causing a portion of his pauldron to cut into his shoulder, even as the vortex pulls him slowly forward. He digs his heels in, but he cannot stop himself from being pulled in.

Miroku trembles in pain as the demon begins to be pulled into the void in his hand. Darksol hisses and shrieks in pain as the void claims his hands, “Not today, fool! Not today!” He begins to vanish into thin air, and Miroku feebly attempts to stab him with the sharpened end of his staff. It catches him, and he cries out, re-materializing and Miroku pushes the blade deeper into the devil, and lets the wind tunnel do the rest of the work. It pulls him further onto the bladed staff, wounding him greatly. “Damn you! Damn you, you little mortal!” Darksol gasps, as he is at last pulled into the void. Miroku collapses to the ground, grasping for his rosary and seals the wind tunnel.

Panting, choking, and coughing up blood, Miroku lies on the ground. The victor, though it nearly killed him. But, could this really be the end of Darksol? This greater devil is not known for staying dead…

Lu Bu Vs. Mitsurugi

I am just going to assume you know who they both are. I mean, come on, why not?

For the sake of recap though:

"Can anybody provide me with a decent challenge?!" - Lu Bu, DW 5

Lu Bu is a legendary warrior of an almost unrivaled caliber. In addition to his prominent skills with melee weapons, he was said to be a master archer. Lu Bu also possessed massive physical strength, and towered above most other men. His career is marked by astonishing feats of prowess.

"The name's Mitsurugi - Remember it!" - Mitsurugi, SC 3

Heishiro Mitsurugi is a legend among men. He is a Japanese Samurai, and a master swordsman, who has a taste for battle. He is known to purposely join battles on the weaker side in order to find a challenge. Mitsurugi has defeated musket men in single combat, and became so accomplished in fact, that he began to doubt that any mortal could provide him a challenge. Thus he sought the supernatural.

So, essentially, it's a face-off between two warriors with a thirst for war, and a mean winning streak.

-----------------------------------------------------

So, if it were to happen, it could look something like this:

Mitsurugi wanders the land, seeking a challenge worthy of his skill. Thus far, he has been met with endless disappointment in his quest. His wanderings have brought him into the heart of China, during the total collapse of the Han Dynasty. Lu Bu’s master, Dong Zhuo, has seized the capital and is making a mess of pretty much everything he touches.

Given the nature of Dong Zhuo’s tyrannical rule, many warlords have banded together to attempt to stop him. Despite their combined efforts, Dong Zhuo’s forces are still superior (though not by too much).

Mitsurugi, seeing an opportunity in this mess, joins the fray alongside the Anti-Dong Zhuo Coalition.

The battle of Shi Shui Gate has arrived. The great Hua Xiong, Dong Zhuo’s second greatest soldier, has just fallen in battle to Guan Yu. Now, mighty Lu Bu stands at the gate. Towering over the common soldiers, his presence is imposing. His face set into a glare, he raises his halberd above his head and brings in down in a sweeping arc, killing five soldiers in a single blow. Their best attempts to parry the blow, proven useless.

“Can ANYONE provide me with a decent challenge?!” Lu Bu bellows, “You worthless dogs are hardly worth my time!”

Moments later, a stranger approaches the gate, stepping determinedly out onto the wooden bridge that leads up to it. Heishiro Mitsurugi unsheathes his katana, a glint in his eye as he wordlessly takes a stance.

“YOU Seek to challenge me? What makes you think you will fare any better?” Lu Bu shouts with a laugh,

“Why don’t you come a little closer, and find out.” The samurai replies eagerly,

Lu Bu steps out onto the bridge, intrigued by the stranger’s brazen defiance. “And who might you be, stranger?” he asks

“I am Heishiro Mitsurugi, don’t forget that name. That shouldn’t be a problem though, seeing as I am going to kill you, Lu Bu.” The stranger replies with a smile.

Lu Bu takes a stance, shocked to have met someone so bold. The stranger is a fair bit shorter than he is, and his weapon has shorter reach, but he is undaunted.

A group of soldiers from both sides stop to watch.

“We shall see!” Lu Bu smiles, and then sets his jaw, preparing to fight.

Mitsurugi simply stands, waiting for a move. Impatient, Lu Bu gives him one, lunging forward with a bone-shattering, over-head halberd strike. The samurai’s katana seems as fast as light, gliding effortlessly to block the mighty blow. Muscles straining, the two warriors stand, weapons locked.

Lu Bu again pulls his weapon free, swinging horizontally. The massive polearm takes far too long to reach Mitsurugi, before his katana has thrust forward towards the Chinese warrior’s ribs.

Stumbling in shock, Lu Bu drops his attack and narrowly misses being fatally wounded. Surprise is evident on his face. Blood seeping from a shallow puncture wound.

Mitsurugi grins, thrusting he blade forward yet again, this time, however, Lu Bu is ready. He catches the blade with a parry, and overpowers the samurai, shoving his opponent backwards, sending him to the hard wood of the bridge. He brings his halberd down with terrible speed, barley missing Misurugi’s head, as he rolls to the side, quickly finding his footing again. Determination on his face, as he again, takes a stance. His sword drawn back to his side, waiting for a chance to strike.

Lu Bu glares. “You can’t KILL ME!” he declares, “Nothing can stop ME!” The Chinese general spins his weapon, leaping forward with a low sweep. The samurai swifts his stance, hopping over the bone-rending blow. With a smile, he realizes that he just almost lost his legs. Now this was a worthy fight!

Lu Bu stumbles slightly with the force of his swing, leaving him partially exposed. Mitsurugi takes the opening, suddenly springing forward, his blade aimed for a death – blow to his opponent’s neck.

However, he is caught in the stomach by a huge fist, as Lu Bu desperately defends himself.

Mitsurugi crumples to the ground, but soon rises, clutching his side. The massive warrior had cracked ribs, at the very least. The samurai glares up at Lu Bu, noting the panic in his opponent’s eyes, as he again raises his sword.

Lu Bu’s panic turns to rage, as he attempts to push down his worry. Mitsurugi smiles at him.

“DAMN YOU!” Lu Bu shouts in rage, thrusting his halberd like a spear, straight for his enemy’s leg. Despite his wounded side, Mitsurugi rolls to the side, thrusting his own blade forward, into Lu Bu’s leg. It slices into him just above the knee. Blood splatters out, and the massive warrior falls forward, his leg now useless. “DAMN YOU!” Lu Bu screams again, this time in pain. He swings his halberd again, knocking the samurai’s katana free of his grip. Mitsurugi narrowly manages to avoid the warrior’s death-blow as he rolls for his katana. He rolls forward again, blade thrust forward, sinking it into his kneeling adversary’s chest.

Lu Bu’s eyes fill with shock as he realizes that he is dying. “No…” He gasps, “I…CAN’T DIE!” At last, he slumps forward, the life leaving his eyes.

The soldiers who were watching gasp in shock as the Mighty Lu Bu, falls dead.

Turning towards them, Mitsurugi looks over them, meeting each of their eyes.

“Heishiro Mitsurugi – Do not forget that name.”

Most Lethal Video Game Warrior

After finally watching some more "Deadliest Warrior" on Spike last night, I decided to go ahead and try it out with some game characters, and possibly some character classes. Habast will be helping me because he is awesome, and happens to be my brother.  
If this interests you at all, feel free to comment with fight ideas or comments. This is bound to be a little biased on some level, but I will do my best to be impartial. Our outcomes will be primarily based on statistics and dice-rolls. 
Hopefully this will be somewhat entertaining! So anyway, here's the first match-up! 

Mario Vs. Sonic! 

 
All credit for image to TPollockJR of deviantArt.
 Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario the Plumber. Two classic gaming icons, once bitter rivals battling to be the king of platform gaming. 
Now, these gaming titans have a chance to settle their long-disputed, and heated feud! 
 
 

The Fighters

 Mario the Plumber:

 Mario is Nintendo's undisputed king, and arguably the most recognizable character in gaming. With his arsenal of fireballs and super-human levels of strength and speed, Mario is ready to take on nearly any challenge. Mario has defeated Bowser since long before that was his name, and has since proven strong enough to swing the huge dragon by his tail and send him flying.  
 
Special Weapons / Abilities:
  • Ranged - Fire Balls:  Mario is capable of flinging these things pretty quickly, and they hurt!
  • Melee -Superhuman Strength: Mario's heightened strength with allow him to do a lot of melee damage once this fight comes down to blows.
  • Special - Jumping: Mario can jump high, and far. It may just be his best chance at agility vs. Sonic's speed.
 

Sonic the Hedgehog:

Sonic is Sega's king, or at least he was before Sega was bought. Regardless of this, he is ready to finally have a clean, one-on-one battle with the plumber. Sonic has battled Dr. Robotnik countless times, and destroyed countless inventions that the deranged scientist has cooked up. His speed is vast, allowing him to break the sound bearer and reach speeds of up to Mach 2, Earning him the nickname "The Fastest Thing Alive". The spikes on his back are also razor sharp, and extremely durable. 
 
Special Weapons / Abilities: 
  • Ranged - Spin Dash: Sonic has no real form of ranged combat, so he must rely on his blinding speeds to close the gap between him and Mario. His Spin Dash is a deadly move.
  • Melee - Spin Attack: Sonic performs his spin attack by quickly curling into a ball, leaving a foe to suddenly be facing a ball of spikes. Sonic can also do this in mid-air, coming down on his enemy in a spike ball.
  • Special - Speed: This should be obvious. Sonic's speed allows him to move undeniably faster than his opponent, but remember: Mario is definitely stronger. 

  The Breakdown

Weapons / Abilities:

  • Ranged: Mario. I had to give Mario the edge on this one. He will have the chance to throw a lot of fire by the time that even someone like Sonic can reach him.
  • Melee: Sonic. While Mario's superior strength would give him the advantage in hand-to-hand combat, Sonic has a tendency to curl into a spiky ball very quickly, not leaving much room for the plumber's power punches.
  • Special: This was hard to decide. Mario is able to jump up to 2 stories, where as Sonic can run at speeds over Mach 1. With Sonic's speed being harder to control, and Mario needing to have time to react and jump, I placed them at a dead-tie. Which I think is do-able for such an iconic rivalry.

Predictions of the Outcome

While we are the creators of this fight, we have no real way of knowing the outcome. We have inputted their stats, and assigned a dice roll value to each. We will be putting all of the numbers into a random dice roller online which is located here: http://www.roll-dice-online.com/  
We will be calculating the outcome in three different ways: 
Total Wins in different areas, taking the highest average roll for both combatants in each area.  
The Roll Total: The highest average from every stat roll combined. 
The Average Total: Dividing the Roll Total by the umber of stats (8).  
 
Whoever wins more of these final three totals will win the match.
 

Madhattervx's Opinion:

Even though I am a long-time fan of Sonic, I predict a narrow victory for Mario. He's stronger, and has the ranged advantage. I also think he just might have the chance to evade Sonic's rushing attacks. Either way, it's going to be very close. 
 

Habast's Opinion:

In this clash of gaming giants, I predict a victory for everyone's favorite plumber. He just has a sturdier build and could take more punishment than his rival. Another edge he'll have is that he can fight at a distance via the fireballs. While Sonic is faster, I don't think he'll even be able to close the gap before he gets burned. If he does, though, he does have a large advantage in agility. It's really anybody's game, but I'm predicating a victory for Mario. 
 

Expert's Opinion:

I think that Sonic will just Spin Dash into Mario and kill him before he has the chance to throw any fire. Easy victory for Sonic. 
 
 

Results

Mario is traveling an area of the Mushroom Kingdom that he usually doesn't explore when he comes upon an unusual pipe protruding from the ground. 
It is blue in color, and this sparks Mario's curiosity. Exiting the tube, Mario finds himself falling from the sky. Unable to stop his fall, Mario lands directly on Tails by chance. Sonic, who was nearby is angry, mistaking what happened for an attack. He races at Mario, certain that he must be an ally of Dr. Robotnik. 
Sonic Spin Attacks Mario, slicing into him with his spikes, and speeds away to make another pass. Mario, now ready for an attack turns and begins peppering his assailant with Fire Balls. Sonic is caught of guard, the fire burns him and the shock of it makes him lose control and sends him sprawling. Mario rushes and leaps into the air, landing directly on Sonic, and begins to punch and kick him. Sonic manages to get into his protective Spin Dash, and sends the plumber flying. 
Mario once again springs into the air, just as Sonic is making yet another pass and lands on the Hedgehog again, and again begins to pummel him into submission, until finally Sonic can take no more, and is down for the count. 
  
 
 

  The Victor: Mario

Mario won 2 out of the 3 totals, the 3rd being a draw. 
 
Madhattervx's Closing Comment: It was Mario's greater durability and physical strength that play most into his victory, in addition to his advantage in range. It was a very close fight, but it looks like Mario is the winner. 
Habast's Closing Comment: Mario simply had greater strength. He could take more hits than Sonic, and in the end, that's what won it for him. 
Expert's Closing Comment: I really wanted Sonic to win, but Mario won and he is cool to. And It seems right for Mario to win.
