A Bloody Angel.
The purest symbol of holy destruction in existance. The destroyer of all that oppose her, Altima is a fearsome being indeed.
Facing a Paragon.
A champion of justice, Ash lives nobly, for all that is good, right, and holy. In a very simple way, Ash opposes everything that Altima stands for.
On the other hand, he embodies it as well.
Who could possibly win this struggle?
Ash stood, red-faced, for a moment.
Then holy lightning struck from the sky, destroying him utterly.
Had Altima conquered him?
"...It's amazing what embracing a man in such a form can do." Altima noted, gazing down at her own scantily clad Holy Angel form.
Ash, the purest of the pure, the chosen Paragon, had been struck down for having impure thoughts.
Well, it's not like he's the first person to get their life ruined by a girl, as Squall, Dart, Mario, Alicia and Lavitz can testify.
Ultimately, the main problem is that Ash keeps getting struck down, even after the match, however.
Such impure thoughts really aren't becoming of him. Even though he can't figure out what they are. He's currently trying to blank his mind, but it doesn't seem to be working.
Naturally, Altima's bribery of Jade has paid off well.
Ash Lambert: 12
There are many ways for Lavos to win this match.
His massive armored shell, with it's devastating rains.
His dangerous armored core, capable of opening gates to the fires of hell.
His unarmored core, capable of surrounding his opponent from all sides, a confusing and dangerous opponent.
However, Lavos, tired of such games, simply went straight for his secret weapon.
"Where'd Johnny go?" A puzzled Cloud asked the other judges.
"...I was afraid he'd use that." Magus sighed. "What he did to me was bad enough, but to subject him to the same thing he subjected Schala..." He shook his head in disgust.
Johnny wandered around, confused.
He'd thought he was about to fight Lavos! Where the heck was this? Some island? A little shanty fishing town?
Then a dorky looking kid followed by a pink dog ran by.
Johnny hastily decided to follow him. He at least looked remotely like a PC. He might get something besides babbling about fishing and basic fighting tips out of him...
"He made him live through Chrono Cross plot...?" Cloud asked, stunned.
"If you had any doubt about what the cruelest creature ever spawned was, they should be gone now." Magus nodded grimly, as Lavos shrieked triumphantly into the heavens.

"Will you be my friend?"
"Odd Eye Beams!"
"But thou must!"
"By your powers combined, I am..."
Nate slammed his briefcase on the table. "A walking copyright infringement."
"Myria, Fou-Lu, Odd Eye, Zog, Luca... Why do you think I would let you become some sort of quasi-Shiva/Genbu unholy mixture from Hades?" Nate said. "And why are you presenting this during what is supposed to be a Godlike match?"
"You're busy all other times." Zog notes.
"I should be busy now. Reffing." Nate counters, eyeing him, before flipping a coin. "Odd Eye wins. Get out of here, your request is rejected."
"...man, it's been so slow lately." Sten noted sadly, kicking at a rock.
It was true.
Half of the perverts had practically given up on the League, and were instead back to beseiging Alma Kinnan. A few more were slipping away each day.
"...of course, Yuri and Edge don't have any problem!" Sten yelled at nothing in particular.
Which, of course, was true.
Their own reputations as suave and intelligent perverts had, at least, gotten them the time of day with women.
Not that it mattered anyways, they both had girlfriends. Which, to Sten, naturally didn't make things seem more fair.
Still, they were the best people to ask for advice.
"Thanks!" Sten said happily, as he slammed the door behind him.
"...Does he just...forget that we give him evil advice every single time?" Yuri pondered.
"...Nah. Our meant-to-be-bad advice is just better than his plans." Edge answered with a shrug.
Sten, naturally, never knew any of this.
All he knew was his next target.
Sten was in heaven.
It'd all worked!
His plan had worked!
Sure, it wasn't a great plan.
Fujin was Fujin, and this new Jenna girl was kinda not much either.
And half the crowd was acting really weird about them getting so wet. And it'd been such a pain in the butt to get the sprinklers into the arena, bury them, get a bunch of perverts to kill the inspectors, and hide the bodies.
And Jenna kinda killed Fujin really fast, so he didn't really get to appreciate it.
But it'd worked!
Sten could only dance happily, surrounded by a crowd of cheering perverts, at their first success in what had to have been years.
"...So...um...do you get to tell him, or do I?" Yuri asked.
"...let's not. It's been so damned dull without any of the perverts around. It'll bring them back in to have a success." Edge shrugged. "He'll find out eventually and probably get killed to boot. And hell, even if not, he'll have had to have thought of this scene like fifty million times since then."
"...You're right, it's a lot better this way." Yuri shrugged.
"Scuba diving. We are judging a bloody SCUBA DIVING CONTEST." Killer growled, leaning against the chair. Viktor shrugged in reply. "It's something to do, you know?"
"And Gobi's having entirely too much fun. Can we just kill him?"
"Damn. Well, tell me when either Sofia or Ryudo manage to get the chest up, I-"
A massive bolt of lightning slammed into the waters, causing a shockwave that rattled the judge's stand. Killer jumped in surprise. "What the..."
Gobi's body floated to the surface, face down, followed slowly by Ryudo's. Sofia was the last up, swimming and panting with the chest in her hands. "Congratulations, you surviv-" Viktor began.
Another bolt of lightning blasted Viktor off across the sand dunes. Killer blinked before looking to Sofia, who was growling audibly. "Take it. It's yours." As the heroine moved off, Killer watched in mixed shock and admiration. "Well, that's one way to win a match. Fendspell and mass electrocutions..."
It's ironic that, despite the best of intentions, Tristan called the match.
You see, Slim Hilda looks much like a certain domineering witch from Tristan's own world, and so the masterful warrior came in expecting a simplistic match in which his sword overwhelmed her stuns.
The first stunning thing was seeing such a cute girl come into the arena. How could such a delightful young woman ever be called a witch! Surely this was all some sort of mistake! So Tristan called the match and advanced to meet this angel...
...who promptly blasted him out of the arena with a Grand Slam, before transforming back in irritation. She had been looking forward to a real match, darnitall.
Tristan Zenobia: 14
Silent, deadly, a threat to all that opposed him.
His ARM, a frightening, forbidden weapon, would simply obliterate all that opposed him.
There was really only one problem.
"Well, that was easy." Zerase noted, as Rudy wandered out of the arena.
Zerase, possibly powerful than Rudy himself, her rare rune sparkling into the arena, had one advantage that Rudy could never have fought.
She knew how to make silent mains do whatever the hell she wanted.
The graceful, sweeping moves.
The dangerous close maneuvers.
The fright in Edna's eyes.
There was no hope.
"You really do dance divinely, my dear." Lassic noted. "I'm glad you didn't reject my dance offer before the match."
Edna rapidly nodded with a fixed smile on her face.
"...I guess he doesn't know that she's only evil and demonically powered when she's Malice infused." Orlandu said, as he stared blankly at their dance. "Which doesn't happen before a match."
Ultimately, Edna, smiling broadly, apologized effusively and said there really was somewhere else she had to be, no, it's a pity she had to miss their match, but she really had to be going.
Lassic simply bowed solemnly.
Edna gasped and ran quickly out of the arena.
Lassic smiled slightly. That had been far, far too easy.
Though, really, she did dance divinely. He'd have to see about getting her infused with Malice for a night on the town some time.

How does a Priest compare to a Pirate in battle? Well, lets find out!
Pirates are well built physically, having to do hard manual labor on their ships, and swabbing the decks and all that other pirate stuff. Plus they fight off rival pirates, stupid royal navies, among other things. Oh, they often carry bit scary sharp weapons, in Dart's Case, a large Axe. Also, pirates are known to have no morals.
Priests sit around all day praying. Occasionally, they'll get up and socialize. They also are about as morally set as you can get...so long as they aren't priests of the token evil Religion that RPGs often, but Sara in this case is not. For weapons, they like staves.
I don't think the fight of Priest vs. Pirate is as epic as people make it out to be frankly...if anyone ever HAS tried to, anyway.
"We needed the money in order to finance rebuilding our world. Don't look at me like that." Mia said crossly to the three men of her cast as she watched TV, while they were gaping down at something on the table.
Garet gulped a bit, before looking at Mia with a mix of anger and uncertainly. "But... these are... how could you think we'd be willing to...!"
"Look, I'm not going to pretend that I don't hear you three at night."
A dead silence greeted these words.
"Plus, someone's going to give you guys advice on it. They figured that Boomer Ang Mi's last movie was successful enough due to the controversy, and, well, Anastasia said she was looking for actors willing to go even further this time. The contracts are already signed, Joachim will-"
Ivan raised a hand to forestall Garet's explosion. "Mia? Those were Scrabble games. Not... what you're thinking," he muttered.
Mia turned to the three men, eyebrow raised. Isaac simply nodded, blushing deeply. "We're not..."
"Then this is your punishment for not inviting me to play Scrabble. ...also explains why Garet kept rocking back and forth on the bed. You always were bored with board games." Mia said after a moment, before turning back to the TV.
"But Mia... you always win at Scrabble, that's why we stopped inviting you...!" Ivan stuttered before sighing. "This isn't fair!"
"And?" Mia commented. "You guys have any better ideas?"
"None you'd listen to!" Garet yelled at her. Mia didn't turn at this.
"Well, it'll be better than the last movie she signed us up for. Stupid purple dinosaurs..." Ivan muttered. "Who even knew...?"

"Ah, DLopolis." Lang grinned into the sunlight as he and Fuse strolled down the streets on patrol. "I have to thank you for getting me this job."
"Not a problem. Far preferable to home in many ways - away from the arguments and strife...-"
"You call that effective, soldier? Drop down and give me fifty more."
The two stopped in front of a crowd-gathering site - Tony's mec was stopped in the middle of the road, and Gale was standing over him with a machine gun, barking orders.
"You want to join the most elite fighting force this side of the Junkyard? You want to prove your capability in battle? You must first prove yourself!" Gale barked. "You cannot rely on your machines to do everything for you! You must have the strength to fight on your own."
Lang shrugged. "And then you get stuff like this. At least it's peaceful."
Fuse laughed darkly. "You weren't here during the Pervert Wars. Back in the day..."
Arche has plenty of experience messing with justice obsessed people like cress and dhaos. In short, Enrique will probably too angry to really put up much of a level headed fight.
Arche Klein: 28
This match is simple:
Ricardo is a sexy, mexican (?) guitar player who can get any woman swooning over him instantly.
Shir is a girl.
I think the outcome of this fight is obvious.
Ricardo Gomez: 23
Natan woke up in the morning with two things bothering him.
Thing #1: Some guy named "John Woo" has been calling Natan from the year 1986. In frusteration, Natan threw his phone out the window by the end of breakfast.
Thing #2: Natan needed to get a ride to the RPGDL Arena. He was going to call for a taxi, but he was shortly reminded that he got rid of his phone. Ultimately, Natan decided to give a shot at this newfangled driving stuff. On his way to the stadium, he started to lose control of his Ford Model T and hit a large but squishy object on the sidewalk. He thought nothing of it and continued driving towards the arena.
As it turns out, the squishy object was Palmer.
Seeing as Kinnison keeps a rather more vicious wolf as company, it's apparent he has some influence over animals. And if Kogoro can't be persuaded with some kibble, then a hefty payload of arrowheads may be able to convince the stray pup of where its role really lies. A-E-I-O-Oooooh....
Serph walked into the arena, deadpanned "Ice to meet you," and froze Jane with ice magic.
Then he thawed her out and ravenously devoured her.
A sense of humor and good nutrition habits are both important to develop, but it's rare that you get to do both at once like this.

Dr. Dre once said that it's sad that the bad guys always die...
This does not hold true today, where the Heroes from numerous final fantasy games square off against the 4 fiends. One of these fiends is completely immune to Magic, and takes almost no damage against physical attacks.
Yes, Valvalis is a completely imbalanced boss who only fears Squalls Lionheart and maybe Terra's Ultima if you allow it to hit. Terra will live to see a 1/4 damage Ultima, but Rubicant will make sure that Squall doesn't live to see a super powered Limit.
Sorry Dre, you were wrong this time.
