Right, the rumble is reborn. If a mod could please close the other thread, that'd be great, thanks. Anyway:

Simon Belmont ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Simon Belmont, vampire hunter and probably the most recognizable character in the Castlevania series, is Dracula's greatest foe, using his trusty whips to destroy Dracula's undead minions and banish the vampire lord.


VS


Turel ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Turel, a vampire from fictional Nosgoth and one of Kain's Lieutenants in the Legacy of kain games. Along Dumah, he formed the pair that threw Raziel into the Abyss under Kain's orders. Later evolved into a monstrosity and was destroyed by Raziel.

Belmont moves on (5 votes), while poor Turel falls into the Abyss himself (4 votes). I liked him =/

Next up:

Kano ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Partly inspired by the Terminator films, Kano started out as a Japanese-American but was then retconned to be an Australian after Trevor Goddard's portrayal in the first Mortal Kombat film. A Black Dragon member, Kano worked for himself, for Shao Kahn and for the Deadly Alliance, in pursuit of riches and his own survival.

His bitter rivalry with Sonya led to his near death by falling from a skyscraper, only to be saved by Motaro.

Cody Travers ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Metro City's greatest hero and probably greatest tragic story, Cody Travers fought valiantly against the Mad Gear gang in the Final Fight series, only to be imprisoned for his uncontrollable will to keep fighting. Cody escapes prison and participates in a Street Fighter tournament, prison outfit and chains to boot (by his own choice), meets old friends and rivals and finally returns to Metro City, where he learns his knees will give in if he keeps fighting.

He finally gives in to Glow, a performance enhancer. At the end of Final Fight Streetwise, his knees are as good as new.

Catfight next, with two of the most famous faces in this great entertainment industry we call videogames:

Lara Croft ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

The tomb-raiding, monster-killing, artifact-recovering, aristocratic British lady rocked the libido of any male (and perhaps of a few females) teenager not living in a cave at the time the first Tomb Raider game came out.

With a pair of handguns with inexplicably unlimited ammo, Lara ventured in caves, temples, more caves, lost cities, monasteries, more caves, sunken ships, opera houses, some more caves and killed just about everything there is to kill in her exploits: monkeys, tigers, bears, tigers, people, statues and even dinossaurs, ruining any chances Jurassic Park might've had.

Croft is now an icon of the gaming industry and will be for years to come.

VS

Samus Aran ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Ah Samus, the bounty hunter with the power suit created by the Chozo. Using it, Samus defeated Space Pirates and Metroids more than once. In a surprising ending twist, Samus was revealed to be a woman in the first game, no doubt triggering awkward thoughts in many gamers, usually involving a bottle of wine, the power armour and, lastly, Samus herself.

As is usually the case, Samus was haunted by Dark Samus in at least two games, an evil version of her, intent on corrupting whatever it could. Samus overcame the menace in the best way she could: by turning into a ball and blasting anything she saw.

Her adventures didn't come free of cost, however, and she was infected by the X Parasite. Ironically, Metroid DNA helped save her.

Samus' popularity is undeniable and anyone familiar with Nintendo will surely be familiar with the armour-clad Aran.

Dante ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Few make demon hunting and ghost busting an easy occupation. Dante, fuller of one-liners than a Die Hard movie, and armed with Ebony and Ivory, starred in three games so far.

Son of Sparda and a half-demon himself, Dante is cocky and arrogant but hey, if you had supernatural abilities, wouldn't you be as well?

Not full of personality, Dante is as deep as a sheet of paper, and the Devil May Cry series, while rich in backstory, never fully developed Dante beyond the very basic.


The Prince ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Never named, the Prince started out with one hour to save the princess from the evil vizier, in a platformer that became a landmark. A few sequels and years later, Ubisoft picked up the licence and remade it: the Prince, a young warrior, gains possession of the Dagger of Time and sets in motion the trilogy that would follow.

Young and naive in the Sands of Time, the Prince mangaged to return the Dagger and reverse the events of the game. This earned him the wrath of the Dahaka, which pursued relentlessy pursued him for 7 years. Escaping the Island of Time with Kaileena and destroying the Dahaka, he returned to Babylon, only to find it laid to waste by the vizier from Sands of Time.

By killing the god-like vizier in Two Thrones and refusing to use the Dagger anymore, the Prince finally accepted the consequences of his actions and let time flow as it should.

Now for some clash of the cyborgs:

Master Chief ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

John-117 is the poster boy for the X-Box, 360 and not, and has been one of the many reasons for the success of Microsoft's ventures into the console world.

The last of the Spartans-II, a breed of genetically-enhanced soldiers, and clad in the Mjolnir Mark VI armour, John went up against such foes as the Covenant and the Flood, emerging victorious everytime.

If you expect to find his background story in the games, look again. Read "Fall of Reach" instead.

VS

Bryan Fury ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

A former (and dubious) police officer, Fury ended up eating a lead salad while setting up two rival gangs. Since his story would've been rather boring otherwise, Dr. Abel resurrected him with some brand new parts and sent him off to kill Bosconovitch and Yoshimitsu. He eventually changed his
objectives so he could become head of the Mishima Zaibatsu and prolong his life.

As of Tekken 5, he failed to achieve any of these goals (although he did have a perpetual generator installed) and I don't think even he knows what he's doing around.

Nevertheless, Bryan is an easy-to-learn and powerful fighter, adequate for beginners and advanced players alike.

Leon Scott Kennedy ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

The unluckiest, doubly-first named rookie police officer in history, Leon reached Raccoon City just as the town prepared itself to become a Romero's wet dream.

He met up with Claire Redfield, escaped the town and prepared to shove his badge where the sun didn't shine, except there was no more town. After a not so illustrious appearance in RE:Gaiden (who gives a shit about that one), Leon joined with a governmental agency, undergoing special training that changed him from a zero to something resembling a man with a lower percentage of zero.

He went to Europe (a place where everyone speaks Spanish and uses the Peseta as currency but which the developers refuse to admit it's my neighbouring country) in search of the United States President's daughter, Ashley Graham, from a cult that's big on parasites and probably tentacle rape.

After meeting up with his lost love, Ada Wong, and kicking some Cthulhu-inspired behind, he returned to the States and is probably waiting until Mikami calls him again.

It's worth noting that Leon did indeed underwent a major personality change: from a rookie and naive, yet competent, police officer, to a cynical and even more competent Secret Service agent.

VS

Harry Mason ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Harry Mason and his wife once found a little girl and adopted her. Thus began one of the best survival horrors series in actuality: Silent Hill.

A writer, Mason lived happily with his wife and adopted daughter, until his significant other died. On a fateful visit to Silent Hill, Harry crashed his car and the infant disappeared. Determined to find her, he ventures into the deserted city, where he uncovers a major conspiracy involving drugs and the revival of a demon.

Lacking any type of emergency training, Harry nonetheless saved his daughter from becoming a sacrifice and escaped Silent Hill. Years passed and Cheryl, the daughter, became a teenager and, unfortunately for her, the protagonist of the third Silent Hill game.

Harry was then murdered by one of Claudia's agents, ending his role in the series.

Not a traditional hero, Mason was a simple man determined to do some good, even after witnessing and learning the horrible history of Silent Hill and its inhabitants.

It seems it's every Kennedy's fate to be shot down (3). I'm surprised Harry won, to be honest (5).

This next round started out as a joke and it probably will be a little unbalanced, but it's between two extremely popular characters, one of which is probably my favourite character of all times.

Kain ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Nobleman, villain, anti-hero, hero; Kain has been at one point all of these things.

Refused service in a tavern, Kain wandered out, only to be slain by brigands. Fueled by his hate, he struck a deal with the necromancer Mortanius, exchanging his soul for power, unaware of the price he would have to pay.

Now a vampire, Kain got his revenge and then some, killing every member of the Circle of Nine, in the hopes of curing his vampirism and restoring the Pillars of Nosgoth. In the end, he learned he was the last member of the Circle; had been for 30 years. Choosing self-preservation over a sacrifice for the greater good, Kain doomed Nosgoth to a future of corruption and decay.

Kain then set about creating a vampire legion that would make him the indisputed ruler of Nosgoth. He raised six Sarafan priests and turned them into his vampires lieutenants. After at least a millenium had passed, Kain had Raziel thrown into the Abyss, on an apparent jealousy tantrum.

Centuries later, Kain gradually convinced the returning Raziel that they had been manipulated all their lives and the free will they thought they had was nothing more than a smoke curtain, used by the likes of Mobius to more easily lead them into doing Mobius' master's bidding.

In the end of it all, Raziel, realizing what he had to do, made the decision Kain could not and entered the Soul Reaver, purifying it and allowing Kain to become an uncorrupted Scion of Balance, defeat the Elder God and restore the Pillars to their pristine state.

Kain is, to say the least, a very interesting character. While at first motivated by personal needs (i.e. to cure his vampirism) it's heavily implied he also truly wishes to restore the Pillars, but becomes disillusioned by the fact he was manipulated into killing the Circle and is then expected to kill himself.

It's revealed during the Legacy of Kain games that he had Raziel thrown into the Abyss not as punishment, but as a necessary measure, so that Raziel could return and become the one being whose moves Mobius could not predict.

Appearing as a villain throughout most of the games, Kain was actually working towards the restoration of Nosgoth. He would do so using his methods, refusing to be further manipulated. He also cared for Raziel, as he is saddened by the fact Raziel entered the Reaver, something Kain had tried to avoid.

VS

Sephiroth ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

There are places where kids die everyday of starvation or are caught in the guns used in petty conflicts. Sephiroth could count himself lucky had that been his fate. But luck was out for a cold drink and Sephiroth became a monster before he was even born.

Impregnated by Hojo (through means one does not wonder lest one scratch one's eyes out and drain one's brains), Lucreci carried young Seph in the womb, where he was injected with Jenova cells.

Born a perfectly normal child, (albeit one with feelings of not belonging but c'mon, what kid doesn' feel that way at one point) Sephiroth joined the elite military branch of Shinra Inc, SOLDIER, and excelled in every field, soon becoming the top man.

During an assignment to investigate the Nibelheim Mako reactor, Sephiroth stumbles upon evidence that he might not be as normal as he thinks. Investigating further, his origins are finally revealed and he razes Nibelheim to the ground.

After discovering what he believes is his mother in the reactor, he rips its head out and prepares to leave, only to be stopped by an enraged Cloud, being then thrown into the heart of the reactor, seemingly dying.

Years later, he returns, and toys with Cloud and co. while at the same time setting his plan in motion: to summon Meteor, a magic powerful enough to destroy the planet. By absorbing the energy released, Seph intended to become akin to a god. It was then revealed that the real Sephiroth was still in the Northern Crater, awaiting the right moment.

Deep within the Northern Crater, Cloud fought and defeated both of Seph's forms, finally killing him.

Two years later, Kadaj becomes Sephiroth and reveals he has been using Geostigma to gain control of the planet. Cloud once again defeats him.

Whether you like him or hate him, Sephiroth is one of the most famous videogame characters around and his popularity hasn't waned, even 10 years after FFVII was first released.

BB's list was his, mine is mine. My choices are not entirely random, I can assure you. I don't have a huge list compiled but I am keeping track and have more pairings already prepared. The trouble is sometimes not choosing the contenders; more often than not is writing the summarizations, which BB did not do himself, as you well know.

While preparing one of the rounds, I realized I hadn't even asked the participants to share their choices, which was pretty rotten of me, so I decided to ask now.

I probably didn't express the problem as I should have and that's entirely my fault but once again: my choices are not random. If the participants are unhappy wit my choices, all I have to do is step down and that's it.

Secret agents galore next with:



Solid Snake ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

The best candidate for any number of post-combat disorders, Snake's first mission had him rescuing his buddy Gray Fox and destroying a Metal Gear awaiting deployment in Outer Heaven.

His next assignment wasn't any better: to rescue Kio Marv, a scientist that had solved the energy crisis. Unfortuately for Snake, not only did he have to destroy yet another Metal Gear, he also had to kill his old pal Gray Fox and Big Boss, revealed to be his father.

Quickjump to a few years later, with Snake once again in Alaska being pulled out of retirement (what is it with secret agencies always pulling guys out of retirement) and sent in alone to infiltrate a US facility under the control of terrorists.

Killing every Foxhound member that gets in his way, Snake confronts and defeats his twin brother, Liquid Snake, atop a dismantled Metal Gear Rex, only to be saved by Foxdie, just as he was about to get his face redecorated.

Afterwards, Snake offered his services to an organization bent on destroying any Metal Gears that might arise. This puts him up against Ocelot, Dead Cell and the Patriots. Snake acted in the background, providing support for Raiden (a move that enraged many players) and in the end chases after Ocelot/Liquid Snake.

In the upcoming MGS, Snake is seen as a much older man, due to his genetic structure, which causes him to age mush faster. The Patriots are the main antagonists.

After being a soldier most of his life. Snake knows little about anything else and despite being double-crossed at every turn, he still completes his missions.

VS

Sam Fisher ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

A veteran of countless conflicts, Fisher is a 50 year old man that can still crack a guy's head open, slam another guy's nose into his skull and break necks without even trying. All at the same time.

A former Navy SEAL and wetwork specialist, Fisher was assigned to Third Echelon, an NSA initiative and went about uncovering a plot to weaken the US with electronic warfare. He finally killed Kombayn Nikoladze, the man responsible and his allies, including a Chinese general.

Next, Sam was sent to Indonesia, where a Che Guevara look-a-like stormed the US embassy in Dili. This time, biological warfare was the threat, as "Che" planned to release a surge of smallpox across the US, killing millions. In the end, it was all the work of a rogue CIA agent.

Chaos Theory has Sam preventing a war between North and South Korea and Japan. In a nod to the original Splinter Cell, an unknown party uses the same methods in SC to black out parts of Japan and New York City.

In a familiar twist, the unknown party turns out to be a US-based security company, awaiting only to rake in the money by providing the soldiers World war III would need to be fought. Sam kills Douglas Shetland, his former comrade-in-arms and CEO of the company.

Double Agent presents Sam as a broken man, having recently lost his only daughter. On his most dangerous assignment yet, Sam infiltrates the JBA, in hopes of desttoying the organization. DA however, allows the player to choose his allegiance, through decisions in-game that will affect the final outcome of the story.

A realist, Sam does what he does because he believes it is the right thing to do, while condemning some of the methods he is sometimes forced to use, all in the interest of national, and sometimes global, security.

Old age must've gotten Fisher (6) but he put up a good fight. Solid Snake's (8) cloned ass moves on.

Battle of the sidekicks next with:

Daxter ([Only registered and activated users can see links](7)_250pe.jpg)

After falling into a pit filled with Dark Eco, Daxter's puny humanoid body was changed into that of an ottsel, a mixture of an otter and a weasel, much to his chagrin and desperation. Fur in uncomfortable places notwithstanding, he accompanied Jak on several adventures, always in the hope of returning to his original form, although he did choose to remain an ottsel, so that Jak could use the Light Eco to help others.

After helping save Haven City from the Metal Heads and Errol, Daxter discovers he is actually one of the Precursors, during a Wizard of Oz-type incident, near the end of Jak 3.

He starred in his own game spin-off and had little to do in Jak X, except speak his usual lines, consisting of sexual innuendo and false bravado.

vs


Clank ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Aptly named by Ratchet, Clank is a small robot that decided to save the galaxy on the day he was "born". Meeting up with Ratchet after his ship crashed, both of them went to meet Captain Qwark, the authority on heroic matters.

While Ratchet is the muscle, Clank is undoubtedly most of the brain of the duo. A brain with the ability to use propellers and jets and turn into something that would make the Power Rangers all green with envy.

While he had an active role in the first three R & C games, Deadlocked had him relegated to an even more secondary status, as a desk jockey, although he did have a crucial part in the game's plot.

In Tools of Destruction, it's revealed he apparently has a soul which, come to think about it, is not at all surprising.

Kind-hearted and always wanting to do the right thing, Clank laughs at things Ratchet does not and is not above putting himself over other things (such as when he did not accompany Ratchet because he was having a massage)

No need, BB, but thanks for the offer =)

The furry Ottsel (7) won fairly. Clank (4) is now scrap metal =(

Doc, your wish is my command:

Manny Calavera ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

The next time you wonder if there is life after death and what it's like, just play Grim Fandango, the one game that will provide you with satisfactory answers.

Who knows, maybe you will meet someone like Manny, a sinner in life that is now destined to sell travel packages to the recently deceased, something he is not very good at. In a desperate attempt to sell the deluxe package to Mercedes, Manny realizes something is rotten in the land of the dead, and that his boss is taking away dead people's rights for a ride on the No.9 train.

vs

Guybrush Threepwood ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

If there is a self-proclaimed pirate with a stupider name, I have not heard of it. Guybrush dreamed of being a pirate for a long time, something he (somewhat) accomplished by the end of Monkey Island, but without the respect of his swashbuckling peers.

When Lechuck returned, Guybrush once again defeated the now-zombie pirate and returned to luster after Elaine Marley. This unrequited love takes a turn for the worst when Guybrush presents elaine with a diamond ring that transforms her in a solid gold statue. The ensuing adventure ended with Lechuck, now a demon pirate, buried under a mountain of ice and Guybrush and Elaine getting married.

Escape from Monkey Island sees piratekind being driven away by an enterprising Australian and a new candidate for Mle Island's gubernatorial duties, who turns out to be Lechuck. Needlessto say, Guybrush does away with both foes and peace returns to the Caribbean.

The salesman is left behind (3), while the pseudo-pirate moves on (9). Glad I presented you with a challenge.

Oho classic battle next:

Mario ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Jumpman, as he was known back when was dodging barrels thrown by an ape, would probably meet with fierce opposition had he been introduced now or very recently. But since 25 years ago we were not under the guilt-inducing rule of political correctiveness, the little Italian plumber became Nintendo's mascot.

Always rushing to save Princess Peach from Bowser, Mario has starred in countless games, participated in countless others, and even had his own TV shows and live-action movie, as well as being one of the most merchandised characters in history.

Magic mushrooms eating aside, Mario is still going strong, with a scheduled appearance in SSB Brawl. Hell, he's probably bigger than Jesus too.

vs

Sonic ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Ah, how long ago 1991 feels. Afternoons with sandwiches, pop and catching gold rings with an anthropomorphic blue hedgehog so we could get magic emeralds so we could defeat a mad scientist. If that's not fun, I have no idea what is.

Most of the 90's saw the clash of the gaming titans, Sega and Nintendo, and while Nintendo had an Italian plumber as their mascot, Sega had Sonic, a hedgehog with a penchant for speed.

With Robotnik (Doc Eggman) as antagonist, Sonic busted open the madman's robots so that animals trapped inside could be set free, while running at insane speeds because he had a cool pair of sneakers. It worked and Sonic went on to become a huge selling point for Sega.

Over the years, more and more characters were added to the Sonic rister (some even getting their own games) and Sonic's success saw him starring in a large number of games and several cartoons and comic books.

Interestingly enough, Sonic will also have a part in SSB Brawl, so the feud between the blue animal and the red plumber will carry on for years to come.

Right, guys, starting a new category after this round, so post some of your favourite Supporting Characters and Boss Characters along with your votes. Otherwise, it'll take me some time to compile a list and this'll be delayed.

Heh, close battle but the Blue Hedgehog (10) was too much for the Plumber (8).


Rikimaru ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

Rikimaru is a ninja, which automatically earns him 10 points of coolness.

Hailing from the Azuma Ninja can, Rikimaru trained under Shiunsai in the arts of stealth and silent assassination. Skilled but overconfident, Rikimaru suffered a grievous wound that cost him his right eye, when his former ally Tatsumaru took advantage of Rikimaru's hesitaton in striking him down.

By the time of Tenchu, Rikimarus is a detached individual, focusing only on the task at hand. When his lord is threatened by a new menace, Rikimaru discovers a plot to revive Mei-Oh. Defeating Mei-Oh's lieutenant, Riki confronted Mei-Oh himself and killed him. With the collapse of the cavern, Rikimaru was forced to enter the portal used by Mei-Oh and disappeared.

Returning just in time for Tenchu: Wrath of Heavens, Rikimaru slew Tenrai, a necromancer of sorts and returned to lead the Azuma clan again, hoping to reform it with a batch of new recruits.

vs

Smoke ([Only registered and activated users can see links])

This former Lin Kuei warrior is probably the poster boy against Ninja organizations.

Doing nothing much except pop out from behind trees in MKII, Smoke was revealed to be a member of the Lin Kuei and therefore a comrade of the younger Sub-Zero.

After failing to assassinate Shang Tsung, Smoke returned home, only to discover the best Lin Kuei warriors were being turned into cyborgs. Failing to escape, Smoke became Unit LK-7T2 and was programmed to kill the rogue Sub-Zero.

No matter how good at your job you might be, a string of bad luck will always get you down and Smoke is no exception. After discovering he still retains his soul, Smoke was captured by Shao Kahn's forces as a trophy and abandoned for years to come.

Until along came Noob Saibot, who reactivated the cyborg and programmed him to obey his orders.

Smoke's future is inconclusive. Saibot was defeated by Ashrah, leaving Smoke free once again, but the pair is seen once again in MK: Armageddon. His ending suggests Smoke absorbed all of Edenia, becoming a much larger entity but I'm wiling to bet this is not canon.
