Marik2:
Donald Trump vs Joe Biden

They both die from heart failure. The world wins.

1 horse-sized duck vs 500 duck-sized horses

Chimpzy:

1 horse-sized duck vs 500 duck-sized horses

500 duck-sized horses. Horses are nasty, kicking creatures and when they gang up on you, you get hurt. What's a large duck going to do, quack louder at me (and yes, I've been bitten by geese, I know how much it hurts)?

The Expendables (first movie) vs Covid-19

The Expendables (first movie) vs Covid-19

Covid-19. Jet Li coughs once while on a plane ride, and all the Expendables have to be quarantined in sterile white isolation booths. Then Mickey Rourke gets into a fight with a roll of toilet paper and looses, and Stallone has to have ass surgery because he strained too much thinking it was a stomach flu.

Mike vs Joel

Joel.

Pre-Crisis Superman vs. Thanos.

Supes wins, with or without the Infinity Gauntlet involved.

1000 Boy Band Fanatics vs 1000 Pro Wrestling Fanatics

Assuming the gloves are off? I'd say the Pro Wrestling Fanatics have the edge by virtue of averaging in a higher weight class.

Jehuty (pre-Zero Shift) vs. Wing Zero.

Jehuty (pre-Zero Shift) vs. Wing Zero.

Wing Zero. Hiro should have died multiples and yet some how survived. Practically nothing can kill him at this point. If all those self destruct acts could not do it, nothing can.

No idea who either of them are.

John McClane or Jack Bauer?

John McClane. All he has to do is draw the fight out past the first day. After that Bauer will suffer severe exhaustion drop-off and will be a push-over. Yippee ki-yay.

The Nerevarine vs the Dragon-born.

Grouchy Imp:

The Nerevarine vs the Dragon-born.

As much as I love the Nerevarine, they don't have the Thu'um[1] of the Dragonborn and will end up being thrown around like a lowly bandit. Or get hit with fire breath, or a time slow, or get marked for death or any of all the insane stuff the Dragonborn can do.

Solid Snake vs Sly Marbo.

[1] Seriously Google, you recognize that as a word?

Gethsemani:

Solid Snake vs Sly Marbo.

Much as I hate to say it, Sly Marbo. For all the stuff Snake's done, it doesn't compare to the nightmares of the 41st millennium.

Still, I'll shift it to Solid Snake vs. Sam Fisher, for the runner up prize.

Tough decision, but I'm gonna give it to Snake. Both are bad ass SOBs.

Any one still wanna try

If not, here is an alternative or you can do both.

Sweet JP vs Dominic Toretto in terms of car racing.

VS.

Dominics Dodge Charger cuz Fast and Furious has shown that he basically has super powers when driving cars.

Wuhan virus vs ebola virus

Wuhan virus vs ebola virus

Well the most recent African ebola outbreak had 4,000 confirmed cases and 2300 deaths. Wuhan's virus has over 200,000 confirmed cases and 9,000+ deaths.

So I guess it depends if we're going for most deaths or least deaths. I think they both started with bush meat, so no points there.

Lady Maria or Sister Friede?

Lady Maria because of better fashion.

Heracles vs Gilgamesh

Chimpzy:

Heracles vs Gilgamesh

Hard to say. Heracles has serious recognizability and PR (you know, having largely covered up his murdering innocent people and basically being God Of War levels of barbaric), but Gilgamesh is seriously old school... On feats of strength, I suppose I'd give it to Heracles, but Gilgamesh seemed so much smarter in the stories. Also, Enkidu was the really strong one, if I remember correctly.

Hmmm... Kvothe (Kingkiller Chronicles) versus Aragorn (LOTR)? I dunno.

or maybe Darrow (Red Rising) versus Peter Quill (Guardians of the Galaxy)?

the December King:

Hmmm... Kvothe (Kingkiller Chronicles) versus Aragorn (LOTR)? I dunno.

Is there anything Kvothe can't do (apart from somehow make money with his diverse and perfect skill set)? Aragorn is the human king of Gondor, who has a really cool, potentially magic sword. Kvothe is the guy who has mastered everything he's ever done (including sex, which he was totes taught by a Godess of sex), is a master fighter and knows two kinds of magic. I'll stop now, because I find the Kingkiller chronicles absolutely loathsome reading with how much Rothfuss is wanking to his own protagonist. But yeah, Kvothe would win by a landslide because of his diversified, extensive and mastered skill set. Aragorn can swing a sword and sneak in the wild, Kvothe can control the wind.

The Federation from Starship Troopers vs The Rebel Alliance from Star Wars

So true about Kvothe!

It's a shame really- I like Rothfuss's writing a lot. It's like the Something Red series by Douglas Nicholas- great writing, unstoppable sue-style heroine (except there is a thinly veiled, barely acceptable excuse of jacking all over the heroine because the tale is told from the point of view of a young, star struck kid, but still). She's a queen, she's an expert in all weapons, she knows magic and everyone thinks she's beautiful and amazing and underestimate her in the same breath so she can solve everyone's problems. Ugh.

The outcome will depend on where the battle takes place, the way I see it.

If it is a ship to ship engagement in space I'd give the winning edge to the Rebel Alliance over both Book and Movie Federation as I don't recall either version having ship to ship weapons. The Book Federation though will be a more costly victory, possibly a stalemate, because the Book MI has their Suits (which can operate in a vacuum).

For a planetary engagement using ground troops and equipment, Book Federation will win hands down. It will be a toss up between Movie Federation and Rebel Alliance, but I would side more with the Rebels.

Endgame (after Way of the Nioh and lower levels of the Abyss) William from Nioh or pre-Shippuden Naruto.

Definitely William. Naruto in his early chapters and episodes was a complete dumbass that usually won by luck.

Head on. I forced my way through The Name of the Wind and half of The Wise Man's Fear before being so disgusted with the supposed protagonist and all the contrivances that ensures he's awesome, does everything right and somehow still can't make a penny to his name or succeed cleanly [1]. Rothfuss has a wonderful writing style, but what he writes with it is utter garbage. Which, I guess, makes Rothfuss the Music Video of fantasy writing: lots of wonderful composition, no substance of note.

[1] and the constant references to prostitution in a book that by all metrics is a YA novel, it is the coming of age of a teenager story and somehow Rothfuss just has to talk about whores

I honestly wasn't too impressed with the writing style, either. It seemed overwrought and silly, but I was also listening to the audiobook and the guy reading it was kind of hamming it up so that probably didn't help my impression. Name of the Wind was completely unenjoyable and I basically listened to the whole thing with gritted teeth.

It's not YA. I've had the misfortune to read some YA hiding in the SF&F section, and it sticks out when you read it.

Kvothe is, however, an incredibly annoying protagonist. Even when he turns out not to be totally ace at something (yet?) it's more like a token something he's not good at.

Don't read Christopher Ruocchio's Empire of Silence if Kvothe annoyed you, either.

In a cookoff I think the Spanish Flu wins just for name recognition and established recipes. I mean what does C food even taste like?!

I can see that it might not be YA, but that also means that the Kingkiller Chronicles means to be mature but ends up reading like rather average YA. I mean, The Hunger Games books are far better at managing not only their protagonist but the overarching themes and comes off as much more mature to me, despite being actual YA.

Rather, I think my problem is that I can't pin down if Rothfuss wanted to make adult fantasy or YA fantasy. The framework of the Chronicler, the demon invasion and adult Kvothe are obviously meant to be fantasy. However, the meat of the books, Kvothe's origin story, is nothing but YA material and often reads like straight YA (school setting, love problems, problems with authorities, identity seeking etc.) with the occasional scene or mention of something more mature or darker (once again, the whores). Weirdly, Wikipedia labels The Name of the Wind as Heroic Fantasy and apart from the last few chapters I can't think of much in that book that's heroic fantasy, but I can point to a lot of similarities with Harry Potter.

I like Travis better than either Rey or Kilo, but I'm going to give it to the space wizards. Cuz they're space wizards. Also, their lasersword doesn't need to be jacked off regularly.

Homey D Clown vs Krusty the Clown

Krusty because of his laugh and he has more recognition.

Global economy. It may take a few years but it'll come back eventually. Economies aren't really based in reality anyway.
