Damn loaded dice. Why did Dario have to draw someone who's so unlikely to lose her second match?
Oh well. Here's hoping that Myria gets robbed again in week 3. Hey, it's happened twice already, right? There's still a glimmer of hope, right?
The two attacks collided, and the warriors bounced back.
Neither had seem to be getting anything done. Then Timelord came up with an idea: Why couldn't he just go back in time, to when the match began, and fight along side himself! Of course! This plan was foolproof!
Timelord attempted to use Time Travel...only, he had forgotten that even he himself hasn't mastered this, and thus, instead, traveled a few hours into the future. When he had come of the time vortex, he had realized his error, as the stadium was completely empty, and on the official DL Scoreboard had the following labelled under thier match...
"RAGE" Fuijin yelled at Fei Fong Wong.
"Rage," Fei chuckled. "You don't know the meaning of the word. Ever take down a city singlehandedly without meaning to?"
"How about destroy your hometown and loved ones?"
"I thought not," Fei nodded. Fuijin put up a worthy attempt but honestly, a mere, one eyed woman competing with a part of God?
In Earthbound, what character most closely resembles Berle? That's right: Starman Junior. Ness laughs off Berle's damage and pummels him when Meta-Guard drops. Like his counterpart, Berle will prove nothing more than a warmup for our favorite psychokinetically-inclined tyke.
The battle was quick, painful, and very, very brutal.
"KYAAAAAAAA!!! DIE BAD, EVIL, BAD, PERVERTED, BAD, CHILD-MOLESTING, BAD MAN!!!"

In retrospect, Yuber probably shouldn't have worn his Micheal Jackson outfit while fighting against jailbait.
Vyse was up against Nina the second. Known both equally for her tearing through middle and light, and her trademark Death spell, she had all the makings of a terrible foe for Vyse. What could the Pirate King do to stop this terrible foe...?
Vyse quietly entered the ring. Instead of setting in a defensive stance or attacking, he walked over to Nina and smiled, placing a hand of her shoulder. "Hey, baby. Want to go back to my ship? I can show you that the Delphinus isn't the only thing up!"
Much to the crowd's surprise, Nina took one look at Vyse, and ran screaming all the way out of the arena.
Chuckling, Vyse took off Vigoro's charm, and walked over to the stands, handing back the man his trademark accessory. "Thanks for the help, Vig. Guess your words really do have a way with women.."
Hector and Vincent traded blows for some time, Vincent's gun failing to put much of a dent in Hector's strong Ostian armor. Eventually, Vincent could take no more, and he pulled away from their conflict.
To his amazement, Hector looked on as a change came over Vincent. He grew a few feet in size, his body being laced with muscles, and his skin turning into a sickly white. Gone was Vincent. In his place stood a hideous nightmare creature, ready to dispatch of the headstrong young lord.
Hector hit it in the face with his axe really hard.

Vincent Valentine: 19
Both warriors are defined by their Lance strikes.
Only one's also defined by confusion. And Freya may end up confused by Amon's trickery and magic, but his brutal physical will clear that right up- along with any chance of a win.

There was once an old rivalry in the DL. One so powerful, so earth shattering, so utterly climactic, that it shook the foundations of the very league.
The infamous Esper Rune walked in, and stared at his opponent, and sighed.
After a casting of Negatis later, Rune muttered to himself:
"Just you wait Justin...... I'll slaughter you one of these days!"
With that, he stormed out if the arena in a rage.

Edge sighed, and strapped on his Catclaw. He goes from fighting one of the most fearsome monsters even spawned... to fighting a corporate flunky. Nothing could make this interesting. A sudden knock at his dressing room broke up his jaded thoughts.
Sweeping into the room was Rydia, resplendent with her newly dark green hair. Unlike her usual expression when she was near Edge, Rydia was smiling. "I never got a chance to thank you for the lifetime supply of hair dye.." Reaching over, Rydia grabbed Edge's face and kissed him square on the lips. "And if you manage to win a middle title and get up to heavy, there will be.. more of that."
Rydia quickly left the room after that, while Edge stood, with an utterly stunned look on his face.
-In the ring-
Rude tapped his foot. When was this flaky ninja supposed to appear? He didn't have all day. Then....the lights dimmed, and a smoky haze set in. All you could see was shadows.. endless shadows.
To the crowd, Rude was just an outline. The outline stood unmoving, until the soft sounds of a thrown weapons were heard. Rude jerked, and fell lifelessly to the ground. A few seconds later, the dimness and the smoke cleared. Rude stood in the middle of the ring, punctured and ripped apart by Ninja Stars. The attacker was nowhere to be seen. All that remained was a message written in blood.
The crowd, and especially the rest of the middle fighters, were completely stunned. It appeared that Edge was playing seriously for once, and god help the person who gets in his way.

Being a Tank PC is great and all.
Being a Cute Little Girl Tank PC is even better.
But when your opponent can toss about any credible status at you AND defense piercing/lowering Overdrives at you... that just isn't peachy.
With that said, Rikku overcomes an armored tank of a little girl and trudges forth to the next round.
Barret is a terrorist. Kurtis is a defender of the earth.
* If there's anything that Star Wars teaches us, it's that the upstart violent rebel group is -always- in the right and -always- wins in the end.
* Has America won "the war on terrorism" yet? They haven't? That's just further evidence!
Better luck next time Kurtis. Go blow up a couple reactors during the off-season--that should help your training a lot!
Barret Wallace: 30
Vinsfield wins again...And again...And again. Too cool for words with strength to match, I wont be surprised if he makes it very, very far.
Vinsfeld Rhadamanthus: 30
Ard has an attack called "Anti Tank Punch" which as the name implies, is strong enough to take down a tank...
Do you really expect a hippee doctor from a backwater village to be anything close to as durable as tank? I sure as hell don't.
Razzly is a little Fairy who likes to play around with animals.
Ward is a sailor who holds a big ass spear and is about 5x the size of a fairy...
I sense a flatenned impaled Fairy is the end result of this fight...
Mogu knew that he would need to plan hard and plan well, if he wanted to defeat his superior opponent, the much-famed Gryz. He was not worried, though. He had a plan, one that utilized his natural capabilities given to him by the Mole Clan. Gryz entered the arena to find the ground filled with holes, tunnels that lead around the field.
When the match started, Mogu darted out of one of these holes, his little claws digging into Gryz's side. He jumped down a different hole. For the next few minutes, Mogu went from tunnel to tunnel, harrying his larger opponent with quick attacks, until he was worn down. Finally, sensing victory was near, the little Mole jumped out of a hole directly behind Gryz, screaming "I have you now," in triumph.
Gryz turned and hit him in the face with an axe really hard.

When's the last time ANYTHING Liz has planned worked out well?
Three explosions, a roasted Ard, and a freed Mog later, we find out the grand total of successful Liz plans remains at.. 0!
