Grabbing the rest, just going to throw the comments in here 'cause it's simpler.
Mystic forces that grant them incredible power.
Surely these two duellers have much in common!
And their differences!
Why, Lady can't talk at all, allowing Avalon to expound on random evil plans, his breakfast, and butterflies whenever he wishes, without interruption!
Surely there would be no bar to their love!?
Hey, wait a second, who's that with the kni-
"Killer?" Lady asked, puzzled at the corpse on the floor.
"Eh, just killing a narrator. I think I'll drop the tape of his lines and his body at Avalon's doorstep and call it a day." Killer shrugged, as he cleaned his knife.
Avalon never showed up for his match, instead preferring to hide in his closet.
Just as a precaution.
And now, as the replacement narrator, I believe I will do the same.
Just as a precaution, you know.
I could give a long, studied speech about this match.
Or I could just simply say the word "Tentacles".
Both would sum up this match evenly, after all. As much as any of Ultros' matches against a female.
...Yeah, I know Feena won.

A master of swordsmanship, without parallel.
A man who thumps things with his blade.
A loyal knight.
A wandering mercenary/vagabond.
A man of keen intelligence.
A man without a True Rune manifested into a sword.
A man with a True Rune manifested into a sword.
Three out of four isn't bad, Freed, but sometimes it's not enough.
Of course, things will be different, next time.
The Star Dragon Sword's been looking for someone it can hold completely under it's thumb, and by god, Freed's <i>even wussier than Edge!</i>
"Okay, so we're agreed." Joachim said, with a sigh.
"...yeah." Luc and Sync said in unison, before glaring at each other.
"...yeah, we're never, ever to mention that our brilliant disguises were pierced by that mysterious stranger, and we all mutually agree not to blackmail each other with this knowledge." Leo sighed.
"Agreed." The other three echoed.
"Y'know. I've seen a lot of cases. But one where everyone had a worse disguise than mine? I mean, mine's okay, but... man, that's still pretty bad." Kidd chuckled, as he put away his photograph of the four unmasked heroes/villians.
