Rin Okumura vs Akame Prelude
The Elder Exorcist Son of Satan vs The Swordmaster of Night Raid
By kirk327
The sword is one of the most ancient weapons used by many warriors through the passing of time. Everyone who has ever wielded a sword has a story to tell. However, those who have wielded demon blades often have the darkest stories of all.
Rin Okumura
On the evening known as Blue Night, the demon Satan killed a large number of holy men in order to find someone he could possess to save the life of Yuri Egin, a young woman who had fallen in love with him and had become pregnant with his twin sons. When her pregnancy was discovered, her father ordered the Paladin, the head Exorcist, Shiro Fujimoto, and one of the eight demon kings Mephisto Pheles to kill his daughter. When the pair tracked her down, the discovered Yuri had died in child birth, but not before naming her sons Rin and Yukio. Swayed by her final wish for the twins to grow up strong and understanding, Shiro chose to raise the twins as h

Doomfist vs Raven Branwen-So Cold by Breaking Benjamin
So this wasn't such a hard pick for me. I feel this song perfectly reflects the biggest similarity between Doomfist and Raven Branwen. They live by a similar code: the strong live and the weak die, taking this to severe extremes. They are both cold and heartless individuals, not caring who they have to stomp down to achieve their goals. I don't envy the ones who have ever stood in their way in the past. It was that cold and heartless personalities that made them feel so right to put against each other. Indeed, had their battle not ended in bloody death, they very well would have become quite the deadly alliance.

Kombat Zone and Plans for Future Challenges
Hey guys, now that the fights for Kombat Zone Volume 8, aka the Challenge Volume, are underway, I wanted to take this time to talk about what my plans are for the future regarding future challenges. It was a lot of fun tackling all these different matchups, but now that they're done, I imagine some of you may be wondering if I will be willing to accept more challenges in the future. The answer is...yes; however, I will no longer be accepting challenges for Kombat Zone. There was one small downside to preparing for these challenges, and that was holding off on doing other matchups I had planned, and I'd rather I didn't have to go through that again. However, for anyone who did offer a challenge for me to do and I accepted it prior to now, then you'll still get that challenge. Here's what I'll be doing for any versus challenges you may want to send me. After giving it some thought, I've decided I'll be willing to do them as 1 Minute Melees.

Avengers: Infinity War Review
It's here. It's finally here. The movie we all knew was coming. The most highly anticipated MCU movie to date. Perhaps words can't do justice in describing this movie. So much happens all at once. But you know what? I'm gonna take a whack at it anyway. Note that this will be a spoiler review, so go see the movie first, and I highly encourage you to do so because it's a solid movie.
So what I normally like to do is talk about the movie's opening scene. But here, I'd like to take a different approach and address a few other tidbits instead. First of all, I'm glad certain rumors I heard about this movie being light-hearted and overly humorous were wrong. The movie still does contain a sense of humor, but like Black Panther, it doesn't get in the way of the seriousness of the story, unlike the last Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy movies. Considering the main plot of this movie, I consider it a great accomplishment to give us a darker story than one we've ever seen so far in the Marvel Cin

Addressing the Old Inifnity War Pre-Thoughts
Now that I've seen Avengers: Infinity War, I'd like to address the ten pre-thoughts I thought about the most before seeing the movie. Here we go, and spoiler alerts ahead.

1. I'm going to miss Baby Groot.

Forget missing Baby Groot. (Okay, that's a bit of a stretch, because I do still miss Baby Groot.) Damn it, they killed the most adorable hero of the MCU, and I'm not happy about it.
2. Xandar is screwed.
Big no-brainer there.
3. What will happen to the people of Asgard?
Well I had a feeling deep down that Asgard was going to get wiped out. We see so many bodies on the floor before the ship is blown up, and before that, Heimdall's last act is to send Hulk to Earth to warn them of Thanos's inevitable arrival. But we don't know what happened to other characters like Valkyrie and Korg. If they died off-screen, I'll be as said as I said I'd be. However, there is hope that not all of Asgrad has been destroyed by the Mad Titan.
4. What will Loki be up to?

The Elder Exorcist Son of Satan vs The Swordmaster of Night Raid

By kirk327

The sword is one of the most ancient weapons used by many warriors through the passing of time. Everyone who has ever wielded a sword has a story to tell. However, those who have wielded demon blades often have the darkest stories of all.

Rin Okumura

On the evening known as Blue Night, the demon Satan killed a large number of holy men in order to find someone he could possess to save the life of Yuri Egin, a young woman who had fallen in love with him and had become pregnant with his twin sons. When her pregnancy was discovered, her father ordered the Paladin, the head Exorcist, Shiro Fujimoto, and one of the eight demon kings Mephisto Pheles to kill his daughter. When the pair tracked her down, the discovered Yuri had died in child birth, but not before naming her sons Rin and Yukio. Swayed by her final wish for the twins to grow up strong and understanding, Shiro chose to raise the twins as his own, agree to Mephisto’s terms to place them under the demon king’s custody if Rin’s demon powers ever emerged. Fifteen years passed, and although Rin and Yukio had a fairly happy childhood together, Rin’s was marred with incidents where he would often get into violent fights with kids his age, causing children and adults alike to call him “Demon Child.” It was only the love of Fujimoto that got him through each passing day, but even that eventually came to an end when Fujimoto was possessed by Satan. To dispel him, Rin drew the sword Kurikaka, the same sword used to seal his demon powers, and drove Satan out of Fujimoto, though the possession still resulted in Fujimoto’s death. After his funeral, Rin was officially introduced to Mephisto Pheles, agreed to let Rin come to True Cross Academy to become an Exorcist and one day pay Satan back for taking away the one Rin saw as his true father. Together with his younger brother Yukio, Rin would go through many challenges during his time as a student, not the least of which included trying to conceal his demon heritage. However, even after the truth came out, Rin was not abandoned by the friends that he had made, giving him a greater drive than ever to put Satan in his place. Rin Okumura has gone through more hardships than most his age, but his desire to keep the memory of Shiro Fujimoto never died, standing beside his brother and friends in their battles against the lingering demon threat.

(“I'm not your weapon; Demon King or Savior! I'm Rin Okumura! And when I'm done, I'm going to be the best Exorcist you ever laid your eyes on!"

        -Rin Okumura)

Akame

Image result for akame

When she was only a child, Akame's parents sold her and her sister Kurome to a nefarious Empire to be trained as assassins. The sisters were put through a cruel exam that resulted in deaths of most of the children around them. However, the two sisters made it through, only to be separated to prevent themselves from relying on each other. Of the two, it was Akame who was chosen to become part of the Elite Seven assassin's squad, trained by Gozuki, one the Empire’s dealiest assassins. As time went on, Akame became dissatisfied with her work, questioning whether or not what she was doing was for the good of others. Then, her life was changed forever when she was sent to assassinate former Imperial General Najenda. However, when confronting the traitor to the Empire, Akame was swayed by Najenda to put her talents to better use, and so Akame defected to the Rebels fighting to bring the Empire down, joining Najenda as a member of the assassin's squad Night Raid. Although she proved to be one of its most valued members, her defection did not go unnoticed, and her old comrades saw her as a traitor, including her own sister, and both of them would vow to one day find and end each other. However, in the end, Akame stayed true to her ideals, fighting to create a better world for both herself and her new friends and allies. She would go on to slay numeorus killers and denegenerates, including many of the Empire’s strongest fighters. When the final battle finally came, it was ultimately Akame who was successful in slaying the great General Esdeath, the Empire's finest soldier. Following the Empire finally fell, Akame was one of the only members of Night Raid to survive the conflict. Afterward, she left for parts unknown to stop any who would dare destroy the new nation that was to develop. Akame's story may have a tragic beginning, but her sufferings only held her resolve together as she fought to make the world around her a better place.

(“As the survivors, we carry the feelings of those who've passed away on our shoulders."

        -Akame)

For the purposes of this matchup, we’ll be combining the appearances of both characters throughout of their respected anime and manga. For Rin Okumura, this will be through to the end of the Blue Exorcist anime after he and Yukio defeated Satan, in addition to his manga appearances after this time. For Akame, this will include her appearances in the mangan Akame ga Kill Zero and the Akame ga Kill anime. Now, let’s find out whose demon sword will overcome the other between the sword fighters of Night Raid and True Cross Academy.

Round 1: Physicality

Rin Okumura

As the Son of Satan, Rin Okumura possesses physical traits outside the realm of the human world. Most fundamental of all these traits were his resiliency and tolerance for pain. When losing smaller appendages like his fingers or a foot, Rin won’t feel a thing and will patch himself up rather quickly with his regenerative abilities. His grit is shown even further by his ability to shrug off most stab wounds inflicted upon him, provided he is not hit anywhere vital. Furthermore, in regards to how much blunt force trauma he can take, let’s just say, trying to bear the crap out of Rin is like throwing glass at a brick wall. He simply refuses to quit until he has seen a fight through to the end, motivated by his determination to protect his friends and prove he can become a capable Exorcist. While his strength and speed are less noteworthy, they were still nothing to sneeze at. Rin has been shown capable of keeping up with the seventh strongest Demon King Amaimon, and this was even after he was punched into the ground by his offender. As Amaimon has proven to be one of Rin’s fastest opponents to date, it’s safe to say that demons of a lower caliber are likely to last long against him. As for his strength, it is easily above average, as he can shatter someone’s ribcage with a single punch, and he can apply this strength well against humans and demons alike. All in all, Rin is a stubborn little bastard who will only brought down by a fatal strike and a fatal strike alone.

(“I'm not smart enough to figure out answers no matter how much time I spend thinking. All I can do now is to empty my head and dash forward."

        -Rin Okumura)

Akame

After she was chosen to become part of Gozuki’s Elite Seven, Akame was put through strenuous amounts of physical conditioning to become the most efficient killer she could be. She may not look like much at first glance, she is made of tougher stuff than most girls her age. The thing to especially take into account is her speed, as she has proven to be one of the fastest fighters in Night Raid, surpassed maybe only by Leone in her Beast Mode. Not only is she fast enough to dodge point blank bullets and lightning, but she is also quick at employing agile counterattacks with lethal precision. This is made even more impressive in her affinity for acrobatics, as shown in Akame ga Kill Zero’s first chapter, in which she and Tsukushi infiltrated a show troupe allied with the Revolutionary Army as part of an acrobatic balancing act. Throughout the anime and manga, she has applied acrobatics into her attack sequences, often resulting her appearing as nothing more than a blur to her targets and killing them before they realize what has happened. Her speed has been shown to be one of her greatest attributes, as she was able to overwhelm the serial killer Head Hunter Zanku, keep her sister Kurome on her back foot, and keep up Esdeath, both when the latter was fighting casually and seriously. However, because of her speed, it is difficult to gauge how much punishment she can take, as she rarely takes more than a scratch at the most when in combat. But as stated before, she is still made of tougher stuff than most girls her age, as shown in her ability to survive blunt force trauma inflicted upon her by Esdeath herself. Considering that Esdeath is strong enough to kill a grown man with a single kick to the face, even able to knock off the head completely from the body, the fact that Akame could withstand such brutality and fight on is a testament to her endurance. If that wasn’t enough, her body is also highly resistant to most poisons. In regards to her strength, while she does not employ as often as her speed, it was still to be held in high regard. She’s overcome four royal guards at once while they were wearing heavy armor from head-to-toe and is capable of killing massive Danger Beasts with a single downward strike. To top it off, Akame also possessed incredible willpower, managing to break through Zanku’s mental illusion and hold onto Tatsumi to strike the killing blow upon Doctor Stylish when he attacked their base. Pretty as she is, Akame will not hesitate to bring down her target within the blink of an eye.

(“Glad I got here in time. Just sit tight while I finish him off and then I'll tend to those wounds of yours."

        -Akame to Tatsumi)

Physicality Verdict

At first glance, many might think that Rin’s demonic heritage clinches the round for him. However, heritage isn’t always enough to guarantee a victory, and that is ultimately the case here. While I do believe both fighters possess equal willpower, Akame holds most of the advantages physically. She may not be able to take the same kind of punishment as Rin, her strength and speed match and surpass his own. I wouldn’t go as far as to say she’d speed blitz him, but she has easily held her ground against much faster opponents and defeated them all without taking as much damage. Not to mention her acrobatics will make it harder for Rin to even hit her. She’s also been tested by those possessing strength than the demons Rin has put down, frequently killing Danger Beasts on practically a daily basis. Although he can survive a beating that would certainly kill Akame, Rin is ultimately going to get showed up by the assassin rather handily.
Image result for akame

Akame gets the somewhat comfortable edge for her physical traits.

Round 2: Combat Skills

Rin Okumura

As his weapon of choice is a katana, Rin Okumura ultimately chose to become a knight meister Exorcist, an Exorcist who specializes in killing demons with swords. Despite receiving training only after enrolling at True Cross Academy, Rin has put his Kurikara to good use, easily cutting down multiple demons on his own with low to moderate difficulty. However, despite his chosen profession, I would personally criticize his overall technique with the blade, as his main method of attack appears to be to cut down his foe with his first attack, similar to Ayano Kannagi from the series Kaze no Stigma. In addition to this, Rin was very offense-oriented, rarely using his sword to defend himself. Fortunately, even with this weakness in his fighting style, he usually has the strength to overcome anything sent his way. Even without his sword, Rin isn’t completely helpless, as he is a good street brawler, having gotten into multiple fights since he was little. This aggressive tendency to solve conflicts with his fists would carry over into his attack sequences when he grew older, employing rapid-fire punches and kicks in with his sword strikes. Although he is headstrong and not what one would call book smart, Rin Okumura still has a knack for holding his own well in the heat of battle, willing to cut down any foe that stands in his way.

(“It's certainly good to be smart, but I think it's better that there are all kinds of people in the world."

        -Rin Okumura)

Akame

It’s hardly an exaggeration to say that Akame is one of the most, if not the most, skilled member of Night Raid. While she is younger than some of her fellow Night Raid assassins, Akame is easily one of their more experienced fighters, both from her days as an assassin for the Empire and the Revolutionary Army. She’s had years of practice fighting both with a blade and hand-to-hand, making her a well-rounded and versatile fighter. It doesn’t matter if she’s taking on a single individual or multiple fighters at once, as she can cut down most opponents long before they can even go for their own weapons. A major contributor to her success is her ability to control and conceal her aura, making it difficult for most fighters to detect her presence until she strikes, as they do not detect an intent to kill from her. This also appears to give Akame greater levels of clarity in the middle of combat, able to read most of her foes like a book, or notice something within her surroundings to give her an advantage. It’s also virtually impossible to try and sneak up on her, rendering surprise attacks useless. This focused precision has come in handy for Akame against virtually any opponent she has crossed blades with. It has helped her read practically every move sent her way by the Oarburgh Taeko, whose wind strikes were enough to overwhelm Cornelia; stand her ground against in the ferocity of Head Hunter Zanku, who could usually anticipate enemy strikes with his Imperial Arms; fight on par with Doctor Stylish’s creation Toby, who possessed multiple weapons implanted in his body; adapt to Kurome’s Imperial Arms, which allowed her to summon up to eight puppets at a time; and keep her alive against Esdeath, the Empire’s strongest soldier, before finally killing her. Regardless of what weapons or skills her enemies might possess, if anyone tries to take on Akame, they already have one foot in the grave, and Akame will make sure they stay six feet under.

(“You are done!"

        -Akame before killing her target)

Combat Skills Verdict

I’d be lying if I said it took a lot of thought to reach the final verdict here. The truth is, this hardly took a minute to decide who has the advantage here. While Rin is hardly lacking for ferocity with his swordsmanship, he just doesn’t come close to matching Akame’s own skill with the sword. There’s hardly anything Rin can do to put her off guard, as she does possess experience fighting opponents as aggressive as Rin. As she would say to Toby before she killed him: “Your fighting style was extremely aggressive, but you left me too many openings.” And that pretty much sums up Rin’s approach to how he’ll attack Akame. To make matters worse for the Son of Satan, Rin will have a hard time trying to detect Akame at all due to her ability to conceal her intent to kill. And then there’s their respected skills fighting hand-to-hand, but even then, it’s hardly a contest. Rin has good competence, but Akame has masterful performance. In short, Rin can try as hard as he wants, but Akame is a much more practiced opportunist, and when she sees her opening, it will be very difficult for Rin to adapt to her attacks in time.
Image result for akame

Akame gets the solid edge for her combat skills.

Round 3: Weapons and Powers

As the powers these two possess are greatly linked to their weapons, I felt it made more sense to analyze both in one round. Let’s start with Rin.

Rin Okumura

Rin’s signature weapon is, of course, the Kurikara, a katana Shiro Fujimoto used to seal away his demonic powers. When drawn, Rin has full access to his demon abilities. However, beyond this, the sword was a regular katana and could still be damaged by conventional means. What’s more, if the sword is damaged, Rin will lose control of his powers, and if it’s broken completely, he will die. Even so, the Kurikara still granted Rin a wide variety of ways for him to use his hellfire in battle, including his father's trademark ability: The Blue Flames. He is able to use smaller amount of flames even when his sword is sheathed, typically when enraged, often combining his blue flames with his sword techniques, making him a difficult swordsman to face. To make things even more interesting, he also has several special moves he can perform. Satan Slash is when Rin channels his flames through the Kurikara and fires them at his opponent in a the form of a wave. For Satan bomb, Rin stabs Kurikara into the ground and then creates a series of explosions at nearby points of his choosing. Rin later gains a small amount of control over his flames, though he has shown he is still prone to his flames leaking out during bursts of rage. Be that as it may, Rin has shown again and again that the demon powers he inherited from Satan are not to be underestimated by anyone he faces, no matter how experienced they may be.

(“Life's a bitch, so if it's easy, you're doing it wrong."

        -Rin Okumura)

Akame

Akame has wielded a wide variety of bladed weapons over the course of her career as an assassin. When under the wing of Gozuki, she was given a weapon known as a Shingu, weapons in which were meant to surpass the power of the Imperial Arms but failed. Akame was given the katana Kiriichimonji, a Shingu where wounds inflicted by this blade cannot be healed. However, when a part of Night Raid, she came into possession of the Imperial Arms Murasame, another katana that possessed a poison that killed within seconds and possessed no antidote. It doesn’t matter if she leaves only a small cut or strikes her enemy across the chest. If her target has a heart, they will die. Like most Imperial Arms, Murasame also possessed a Trump Card, an ability meant to give the user an edge in battle if need be. With Murasame, Akame need only cut herself to discard her humanity and embrace her inner demon she actives her Trump Card; Ennoodzuno which enhances her strength, speed and durability to massive levels. With a weapon such as this, you might think Akame is invicible, but you’d be wrong. Murasame must cut through the flesh to kill the target, and its curse is ineffective against armored fighters, machines, undead, puppets, or organic Imperial Arms. Akame’s Trump Card only lasts for a limited amount of time and leaves her exhausted afterward, so she will only ever use it as a last resort. Regardless of the drawbacks, this has never stopped Akame from seeing a mission through to the very end, willing to achieve her goals even if it kills her.

(“I have survived. So I will keep on surviving. Because although I can do nothing else but kill...I must keep on living. Surely I will find a road...to grow from here."

        -Akame)

Weapons and Powers Verdict

The most fascinating part about examining their weapons of choice is the fact that Kurikara and Murasame are both the greatest strengths and weaknesses for Rin and Akame. While they can help them cut down most opposition they cross, they can also be the instruments of their downfalls. Akame is certainly someone Rin would want to keep at bay, but his hellfire can be the right tool for that very purpose. In order to make anything happen, Akame needs to be up close and personal with Rin. Otherwise, she can’t hit him with Murasame’s curse. Not to mention Rin has a wide variety of possibilities to use his hellfire against Akame. Even if she were to use her Trump Card, all it does is give her a stat boost. Useful, but it still lacks in variety, while Rin’s powers are much more diverse and could help him surprise Akame in a wide variety of ways.
Image result for rin okumura

Rin Okumura gets the edge for his weapons and powers.

Final Thoughts

A battle between Rin Okumura and Akame will be the ultimate test of steel against steel of demonic proportions. While there may be a large gap between them with experience, both fighters still possess a wide variety of abilities to keep each other on guard. In the end, this will all come down to one question: who will first have the opportunity to land the fatal strike? Will Akame finally burn in hell for all the lives she’s taken? Or is Rin Okumura as good as done? To set the stage, this fight will take place outside Rin and Yukio’s dorm at True Cross Academy. As a final tally, I would say the advantage to the victor goes 7/10, with the following being a hypothetical battle of 1 majority victory.

Doomfist vs Raven Branwen-So Cold by Breaking Benjamin

So this wasn't such a hard pick for me. I feel this song perfectly reflects the biggest similarity between Doomfist and Raven Branwen. They live by a similar code: the strong live and the weak die, taking this to severe extremes. They are both cold and heartless individuals, not caring who they have to stomp down to achieve their goals. I don't envy the ones who have ever stood in their way in the past. It was that cold and heartless personalities that made them feel so right to put against each other. Indeed, had their battle not ended in bloody death, they very well would have become quite the deadly alliance.

Alisa Ilinichina Amiella vs Lady-Become the Enemy by Like a Storm

Now here was a pairing that took a while for me to decide upon. As a massive Devil May Cry fan, it was easy to think of songs that could be used as a theme for Lady. The problem was finding the right song that would also work for Alisa, since God Eater was a franchise I was much less familiar. I ultimately went with this song because I thought it matched the intensity of their battle. With all the shots and blows that were exchanged, how could it not? Plus, it also fits with how the fight starts. Alisa was after information on Dante, and she saw Lady as an enemy when the latter refused to cooperate, prompting her to attack her with everything she had. But as I said before, this was still mostly chosen because I thought it fit the explosive intensity of the fight I ultimately ended up with. At the end of the day, I am satisfied with how it turned out, as well as with my choice of song.

Mikoto Misaka vs Static Shock-Zach's Song from School of Rock

Oh boy. I can't begin to describe how excited I was to use this song. I've wanted to use it for a while, as School of Rock is one of my absolute favorite movies of all time. The problem was I couldn't find the right matchup for it to fit with. That all changed when I chose to challenge myself with the battle between Mikoto Misaka and Static Shock. As they are both relatively young fighters who are still in school, I simply heard opportunity knocking. I feel the song also think the song reflects their No-BS attitudes when in battle, as both of them are known to fight seriously and show disdain for anything that threatens to upset the balance of their lives, especially when those they care about are in danger. But yeah, I'm actually pretty shocked I finally got the chance I was after. XD

Asuna Yuuki vs Count Dooku-Riptide by Sick Puppies

If there's one thing I have learned that Asuna and Dooku have in common while researching them for their fight, it's that they both like to have control over the battles they engage in and waste no time in establishing that control. To me, this song reflects their determination to hold control of the battle and keep people on their toes in the riptides they create. The song almost feels like a challenge the two are sending to their opponents before they challenge them, which feels like a defining trait the two fencers possess. There may be a large gap between them in age and experience, but both have proven they can stand up to many of the strongest warrior of the day.

Zim vs Predator-Last Resort by Papa Roach

Now this was a bit trickier to determine. It's been so long since I had watched a Predator movie before doing this, and I had not seen an episode of Invader Zim since I was a kid. Honestly, the only reason I remember the latter character is because I've played Nicktoons: Globs of Doom. What ultimately made me choose this song was because of the first few lines spoken in the song. They made me realize just how driven both combatants are in achieving their goals. It doesn't matter how many bruises they sustain, as they'll resort to any means to get the job done. Zim is frequently coming up with far fetched schemes to conquer Earth, but he continues to fail miserably, even when an obvious flaw is dancing in front of his face. On the other hand, the Predator is willing to risk fatal injuries for honorable kills to prove their worthiness as hunters. Thinking about it now, their destructive clash felt even more fitting when taking all this into account. Incredible the random things that can enter your mind when thinking out loud, huh?

Yang Xiao Long vs Rainbow Mika-Fighter by MandoPony

Now here was another song that was easy for me to decide on, though it wasn't my first choice, either. Originally, it was meant to be the song "Born to Rise," but I switched it out for this song at the last minute. While I do think "Born to Rise" would have fit well as a song for these two, the reason for the switch is because this song is a theme for Little Mac. Considering Mika's profession as a wrestler and Yang's fighting style reflecting boxing and kick boxing, I felt this song "Fighter" was just slightly more fitting for these two. It reflects the fighting spirit I believe these two share as combatants, as it was a defining trait that motivated me to see the challenge of writing their fight through to the end. The song also reflects the struggles these two have gone through, which are followed by them rising to even greater challenges once they have picked themselves up. When saw her chance to turn things around for the sake of her younger sister, Yang was all set to overcome the depression she went through after losing her arm to Adam Taurus's blade. It also showed just how different she is from her mother as a person. She may have Raven's sutbbornness, but at the end of the day, Yang Xiao Long is someone who will run toward her problems and not away from them. Meanwhile, Rainbow Mika was a girl of great ambition, wanting to the chance to fight alongside her hero Zangief. But to reach that goal, she had to go through real hardships that tested her skills as a fighter. Despite choosing a violent profession that has put her through some embarrassing defeats, she still holds onto the dreams she has and does whatever it takes to make them a reality. Those are the kinds of characters Yang and Mika simply are. Even when the world gets tough, and when so few remain uncertain of your abilities, they somehow still overcome everything thrown their way.

Iceman vs Kula Diamond-Duck and Run by 3 Doors Down

And here we have a less obvious choice. However, the reason for me choosing it is self-explanatory. No matter which way the wind blows for them, these two ice users never duck and run. Yeah, sorry for the lack of detailed description there, but that's pretty much all I got. ^^;

Godzilla vs Superman-Kickstart my Heart by Motley Crue

So, I chose this song for one initial reason, and one reason only: considering the finale I chose to do for my versus challenge finale, I needed to use a kickass song for its theme. I chose this out of dozens of possibilities, and I don't regret my decision. it fits the pacing of the fight, the intensity of two powerhouses like Godzilla and Superman clashing, and the thrill anyone is sure to get when reading a fight between two iconic, memorable, and beloved characters. Writing this finale has reminded of the biggest reason of why I became a versus debater: above all else, it's always fun to take two characters from different franchises and put them together in a battle of epic proportions, as well as creating a story to go along with what could lead them to clash in the first place. Godzilla and Superman's might be a predictable one, since one uses cities for a playground while the other tirelessly defends them, but it is still a joy to pursue.

I'm really glad I got the chance to delve into the fights you guys were so eager to see me do. It was a great change of pace for me, and I was glad I could get a full volume's worth of fights in from all of you. I'll admit, I didn't know if I'd get enough support from you guys, so it means a lot to me that a lot of you took the time share your ideas with me. It has served as great motivation for me going forward with more versus fights to entertain you with in the future, as I am now more motivated than ever to deliver as many to you as I can. Speaking of which, I can't begin to describe how excited I am to begin researching the two characters I'll be using for the opening fight of Kombat Zone Volume 9. This volume will be a tough act for me to follow, but I am up to the challenge. See all of you later when it's finally ready. :)

Hey guys and here are with a new Last Chance Battle Royale. We will now be turning our attention to the eight fights in my eighth volume of versus fights. This battle royale shall feature Lady from Devil May Cry, Asuna Yuuki from Sword Art Online, Doomfist from Overwatch, Godzilla from the Godzilla franchise, Kula Diamond from King of Fighters, Static Shock from DC, Rainbow Mika from Street Fighter, and Zim from Invader Zim. All these fighters fought well in their respected matches, but didn’t have the skills to win against their opponents. But now, they have a second chance to become a champion in an epic battle royale to the death. But remember: there can be only one.

 

Upon witnessing the mighty size of Godzilla, most of the fighters would instantly go on the evasive, wanting to stay as clear from him as possible. However, only one would try to attack Godzilla head-on, and that would Zim. Laughing briefly at the others before turning to Godzilla, Zim would claim that he alone has what it takes to send Godzilla to his doom before charging the beast. Godzilla would roar angrily when he feels Zim blasting at him with his lasers. They would only come across as annoying bug bites to the colossus, but it would draw his attention toward Zim, which he would soon discover was not a good thing after all. Meanwhile, the others would notice Godzilla looking down at Zim and would make the most of his distraction with the Irken warrior to take the fight to each other. Three new skirmishes would suddenly break out, with Rainbow Mika throwing herself at Doomfist chest-first and knocking him backward. Meanwhile, Lady would train her sights on Asuna and blast at her with Kalina Ann from a distance. But the most dramatic shift in the battle would happen when Kula Diamond focuses her attention on Static Shock. Activating her powers, the arena would suddenly become chilly as it becomes a winter wonderland, leaving the others to fight in an incredibly cold arena. Ultimately, some of these skirmishes would end much more quickly than others. While he is trying to recover, Doomfist would feel Mika wrap her legs around his neck. However, despite applying all her strength into her attack, Doomfist would retaliate by punching her hard in the face with his gauntlet, throwing her into the air. He would turn around in an instant and fire a shotgun blast at the young wrestler, killing her instantly.

8th Place: Rainbow Mika

With a bothersome fly taken care of, Doomfist would look around to determine which opponent is the strongest. His eyes would immediately focus on Godzilla, and he would run forward to attack the giant lizard. At this point, Godzilla has grown frustrated with Zim and finally strike back Zim jumps into his line of sight. Focusing on Zim, and Zim alone, Godzilla would activate his Atomic Breath and blast Zim full force, completely disintegrating him.

7th Place: Zim

No sooner does Godzilla cease his attack, he feels the ground beneath his feet tremble; Doomfist has made his move to get his attention. As he looks around for his new attacker, the other skirmishes would start reaching their climaxes. As the other fights have been raging around them, Virgil has been doing his best to try and overcome Kula with everything he’s got. However, Kula would leave him with no openings for him to effectively use, leaving him stumped on how he can take on a seemingly easy foe to defeat. Eventually, Kula would make her move and blast Static with her ice breath, taking Virgil by surprise. Thrown off his game, he’d fire electricity in all directions, leaving him vulnerable. Before he realizes what she has done, Kula would skate toward him and attack him with a powerful uppercut, pulling his head free from his shoulders.

6th Place: Static Shock

On the other side of the battlefield, the other skirmish would be coming to a close as well. Despite her best efforts, Asuna would not be able to get in close enough to mount a proper offense against Lady, as her missiles and grenades would prevent her from closing the distance. It also wouldn’t help that Lady would be goading her to try harder and put more effort in trying to beat her. Becoming frustrated, Asuna would throw caution to the wind and lunge directly at Lady, no longer trying to be evasive. It’s just the opportunity Lady needs to fire the Kalina Ann’s most powerful missile barrage, completely obliterating Lightning Flash, bringing her feeble assault to an abrupt halt.

5th Place: Asuna Yuuki

Her breathing becoming heavier, Lady would look around at everyone else who’s left. She would see Doomfist hammering away at Godzilla while Kula Diamond stands proudly beside her recently defeated opponent. Considering her options, Lady would see that Doomfist and Kula are both easy pickings, but as the former is locked in deep conflict with Godzilla, the demon hunter would turn her attention first to Kula, not yet willing to bring herself to the attention of the enormous creature. The nest thing Kula realizes, she has been caught by the ankle from one of Lady’s grapplers. In retaliation, Kula would swing her free foot and free herself from Lady’s grasp. Lady would follow up by throwing a grenade at Kula, only to have it defended from with a large body of ice encasing her body. As an icy mist passes over Lady, she starts firing ahead of her with her pistol and submachine gun. However, she hears movement from behind her. The moment she turns around she is kicked backward by Kula before she summons a large icicle from the icy floor, which impales Lady through the heart.

4th Place: Lady

As this has all been going on, Doomfist would be striking at Godzilla at the feet, trying to keep him off balance. In response to this, Godzilla would be trying to stomp on him, but Doomfist keeps jumping out of the way to keep himself from getting stepped on. Ultimately, all he is really doing is delaying the inevitable. Despite all his best efforts, he has failed to inflict so much as a scratch on Godzilla, and he is slowly beginning to tire. Eventually, he would jump too far away from Godzilla, leaving him vulnerable at last to an attack from the King of Monsters. Realizing his mistake too late, Doomfist would have no time to correct his mistake before he is blasted away by Godzilla’s Atomic Breath.

3rd Place: Doomfist

And that is when Kula would strike. Using the full might of her power, she would attempt to freeze Godzilla completely in place. Godzilla would not take kindly to this and not wait for her to come into his line of fire. With all the strength he can muster, he leaps into the air and creates a massive shockwave, scattering the bodies of the fallen away in all directions. Kula is also caught by the shockwave Godzilla has made and soars into the air, completely out of control. Godzilla would then turn to her, and with all the power he possesses, fires his Red Spiral Breath, vaporizing Kula before she can even hit the ground.

2nd Place: Kula Diamond

And thus, I declare Godzilla, the King of Monsters, the winner.
The Winner is Godzilla by kirk327

Now of course, this is all just my own personal opinion. So what do you all think? Do you agree that this is the right verdict, or should someone else have won the championship? Feel free to let me know, as I always enjoy discussion. Thanks for tuning in, and until next time, take care.

Okay, I guess I've delayed long enough. The time has come for me to plunge into the perilous realm of...the feedback section.
I have so much to look forward to this summer. My brother's high school graduation, checking out the Han Solo movie, hopefully getting a job at a local resort. And now there's this. :D

What a great summer this is promising to be! B-)
