I thought this would be a lot more fun if we pitted the actual characters from the shows against one another (though please continue to play the other game, i'm interested in how that will come out, lol). SO we have:

1. Spike Speigal vs. Vash the Stampede
2. Tomohome vs. Vahn Fanel
3. Yuki Shoma vs. Chiyo-dad
4. Keiki vs. Griffith
5. Tsukasa Doumyouji vs. Yuu
6. Der.... vs der.... (someone help me out here!)
7. Inu Yasha vs. Kenshin
8. Edo Elric vs. Eva 01 (hey, it wouldn't be much of a fight againt Shinji alone, heehee)


My votes:
1. Vash, cause he's super-human, though a wuss compared to Spike.
2. Vahn, hands down. He's got the mech, plus those wings are mighty hot (watch the nose though, that could put an eye out, heh)
3. Yuki Sohma
4. hard one, grr..... can't decide
5. Tsukasa is downright evil in the early episodes. He'd totally wipe the floor with Yuu.
6. Der...
7. Inu Yasha, he's got the super powers
8. probably Edo, he's a small target for the Eva 01

This is so totally unfair, since there are no female characters (AFleming is sexist!) and no crisco, mazola or mud!

1. Vash beats Spike because Vash is funny!
2. Tamahome beats Van because Tamahome looks like he really enjoys beating up little boys!
3. Yuki beats ChiyoDad because he has Aya Hisakawa-sama's voice!
4. Keiki and Griffith refuse to fight, and make sweet love instead!
5. Yuu who?
6. Der Kommissar wins because FALCO is da bomb!
7. Kenshin wins because he rocks, in spite of his slender frame and girly voice!
8. Edward wins by turning the Pilot Plug with Shinji in it into a giant cotton suppository!

1. Vash the Stampede - he's a much better gunman than Spike, and he's immortal to boot.
2. Tamahome - even against the Escaflowne, he wouldn't give up, and if he were really mad he could tear the mech apart...
3. Chiyo-dad - Supernatural being. He can even fly; Yuki's no match.
4. Guts.
5. Tsukasa Doumyouji vs. Yuu.... who are these guys?
6. the Gundam pilot. Guns and light-saber-looking swords.
7. Kenshin - too fast for Inu Yasha; can Inu Yasha even draw his sword against a human?
8. Ed Elric - he'd be so mad about Unit 01 being so much taller than him, he'd lose control and go into "berserk mode" long before Unit 01 can even find him.

This is why I'm not voting. Think of me as a "gray" state.

NEWS FLASH

Shinsen just put up SamCham26!

And now we return to our regularly scheduled program....

post #6  on March 21, 2005 - 3:38 PM PST  
Allright, feminists:

1. Faye Valentine vs. Meryl Strife
2. Miaka vs. Hitomi
3. Kagura (Fruits Basket) vs. Kagura (Azumanga Daioh)
4. (someone from 12 Kingdoms) vs. Caska
5. whoever vs. whoever (I need to watch more anime)
6. Macross lady vs. Gundam lady
7. Sango vs. Kaoru
8. Riza Hawkeye vs. Misato Katsuragi.


My vote:
1. Meryl. She's got all those derringers, and Millie for backup.
2. hmm... tough call. Since they never do anything for themselves, the winner will have to be whichever champion wins (Tamahome or Van).
3. Kagura wins! (Fruits Basket) Kagura is a lot tougher than (Azumanga Daioh) Kagura, and (Azumanga Daioh) Kagura is the toughest in the show.... except for maybe Sakaki, but she probably wouldn't get in a fight.
4. I haven't seen anyone in 12 Kingdoms that has a chance of beating Caska.
5. These two are quite evenly matched in my mind.
6. Yeah, Gundams are a little bit cooler than Robotech mechas.
7. Kaoru's small bokken vs. Sango's giant boomerang. Sango's gonna win...
8. Misato wins because she's crazy.

Faye would win. She's stacked!

> 2. Miaka vs. Hitomi

Miaka would mop the floor with Hitomi in any contest that involved eating! She would beat Hitomi at running, too, if there was a buffet at the finish line!

> 3. Kagura (Fruits Basket) vs. Kagura (Azumanga Daioh)

Furuba Kagura wins because of seiyuu Kotono Mitsuishi's fast talking power!

No way, Youko has that symbiotic youma living inside her that makes her invincible in any sword fight! Caska would need Pippin or Guts or Griffiths to come to her rescue.

> 5. whoever vs. whoever (I need to watch more anime)

Tsukushi would beat up Strawberry Preserve or whatever...

> 6. Macross lady vs. Gundam lady

Are they ladies? Or guys dressed as ladies?

> 7. Sango vs. Kaoru

Why would Sango want to fight with that nice guy from Ai Yori Aoshi?

> 8. Riza Hawkeye vs. Misato Katsuragi.

Are they going to see who can drink more Yebisu? Misato wins!

They're guys that look like ladies that look like robots that look like gigantic animals. Just as nature intended.

Edo win? c'mon.. he wouldn't even have an AT field left. he'd just be reduced to a puddle of LCL!

hmm, I forgot about that one. Could be tricky for our Alchemist.
Ed's best chance would be to set a trap. He could make a big enough magic circle to contain Unit 01's entire field (time consuming and pretty hard if he can't prepare before battle, plus he'd need Unit 01 to be at the center for it to work), or transmute the ground below 01's feet and send him into a pitfall.
If not a trap, he would need some way through the AT field to be able to get close enough to go to work on Unit 01's body itself. He could then fuse the armor's joints to restrain its movement... but how would Ed get through the field?
No, no. Plus, Unit 01 would only need one hit to win - automail or not, Ed can't take a hit that size.
(but then there's always the chance that Ed would have time in the battle to talk about his mother.... which would drive Shinji insane... and distract him long enough to break through the field. Plus, Evas have that annoying power cord, a major weakness when dealing with someone stuck to the ground... but it would be somewhat dangerous for Ed to simply break the cord with alchemy, plus Unit 01 would still have five minutes to find him and smash him).

In the light of this new evidence, I'll have to agree that Eva Unit 01 would probably beat Edward Elric in any fair fight (if 5' 0" vs 50' 0" is fair to begin with).

You guys just don't get it! Ed's an ALCHEMIST!! Not only that, he's a special breed of alchemist that doesn't even need a magic circle! He just needs to get his hands on EVA01 for just a second.

And he won't take any hits or be affected by the AT field, because Ed's in an ALTERNATE UNIVERSE! One second will be all it takes to turn EVA01's pilot plug into a tampon, Shinji and all!

And his small size relative to EVA01 (and practically anything else) would work to his advantage... a small target is harder to detect and hit, especially with a giant gun or cutter knife.

Edward is a bug compared to Eva 01! There'd better be alchemy for becoming invisible, because 01 would see him coming and squash him like the tiny roach he is! It might be tricky to stab him or shoot him, but I can stomp on a spider with nearly 100% accuracy. How could Ed have time to transmute Unit 01's foot between the moment it comes into reach and the moment Ed becomes a sticky smear on the pavement?

That's easy! He just has to transmute an Ed-size hole in that very pavement (the hole wouldn't have to be very big). Then when the foot comes down, Ed just reaches up and BANG, End of Evanglion!

oooh, good idea!
(now that I think of it, isn't it odd that Evas don't tear up the pavement when they fight? I never saw that...)

post #17  on March 21, 2005 - 7:25 PM PST  
hmm.... as long as Eva 01 doesn't figure out how to break through the pavement (or Ed can reinforce it with alchemy), Ed has a real advantage. He can use his short stature to his advantage with a series of canals in the ground to run around below Unit 01's very feet. Then, even if 01 can avoid letting him too close, Ed can get to the power cord and find some way to disconnect it without frying himself, and then climb it all the way to the plug. hmm....
Maybe Unit 01 doesn't have what it takes, after all.
Ed Elric's most dangerous enemy:
Betterman Nebula. Psycho Voice would synchronize with the natural frequencies of his arms and legs, and if they don't fall apart they'll be shaking too much for him to even stand, much less perform alchemy.

Weeeeee! Another one!

> 1. Vash, cause he's super-human, though a wuss compared to Spike.

I totally and utterly agree. Vash can do that thing--that he doesn't like to do--you know. Spike is agile and a smart ass and cool but yeah, Vash isn't human. Maybe Spike would trick Vash and Vash would think--aw, we're friends and then Spike'd kick his blonde ass back into the cosmos. That's a stretch though. Yeah, Vash.

2. Vahn, hands down. He's got the mech, plus those wings are mighty hot (watch the nose though, that could put an eye out, heh)

Tomohome, Miaka T-tomohome, M-miaka All you gotta do is scratch Miaka and Tomohome's all stupid. Vahn doesn't get all stupid when you touch Hitomi cuz Hitomi's not a whiney-little-b--I'm gonna go w/ fleming on this one as well.

3. Yuki Sohma

4. Keiki vs. Griffith

Keiki cannot stand the smell of blood. He's all about the looks. Keiki's not about to get his divine hands all dirty. Griffith so kicks his ars.

5. Tsukasa Doumyouji vs. Yuu

I agree with Afleming again. Tsukasa would flatten Yuu. Cuz when he gets mad he gets all wierd and breaks people, which is also very cool.


6. Der.... vs der.... (someone help me out here!)
Robotech wins.

7. Inu Yasha vs. Kenshin

This one would be soooo fun to watch. Man. I'm getting stupidly excited just thinking about it. Even though Inu's a demon, he's a stupid prideful demon while Kenshin's a kick ass--two-steps-ahead-of-you-can-read-your-every-move--type fighter. Refined skill against pigheaded strength. It's a toss up for me.

Edo Elric vs. Eva 01

Edward's focus is so much more concentrated than the owner of 01 that I'mma hafta go w/ Ed. He'd find a way. And Shinji'd be all "I can't---my dad doesn't love me---I don't understand--mommy."
