The Last Fantasy Battle
Fantasy. Horror. Pop Culture. Movies. Anime. Manga. T.V.. Books. Video Games. Comics.
These were sections of entertainment that people have loved for years. Whether it is a new videogames announced at a press event or a book that has been announced at a book store, people have loved them. People even loved them so much; they have made fan art, fanfiction, costumes, and even their own comics. This lead to a lot of people making entertainment that have been made famous like the DC vs Marvel miniseries, the reality show Deadliest Warrior of famous historical icons that haven’t meet before to fight, and Death Battle that had famous characters from works of fiction battle to the death.
This led to an event that had happened all over the world. Every character have mysteriously been appearing from what people have described, “ A ferret the size of a full grown man with electricity around him made him/her/them/it appear”. This has been happening since the beginning of October of 1997. Every character and creature from every work of fiction have been appearing in every nook and cranny, even places that would so be out of place for certain characters; like how someone claimed they found a pony by the name of Derpy in the library reading a book on Egyptology. Other times, government officials or law enforcement get involved because of how dangerously known some of them are such as the Diclonious named Lucy and the armored soldier known as the Master Chief.
But that didn’t change how the characters and regular people alike were interacting. Some would actually welcome the praise and amazement. Some would question why they were afraid of them. Others have proceeded as if the sudden travel never happened. They would continue being the character they are, while adapting to modern society. Other world celebrities like Johnny Cage and Fei Long have made movies with Jackie Chan and Chow Yun Fat. Creatures like Pinkie Pie and Chowder were opening up restaurants and bakeries with the help of Gordan Ramsey and Rachael Ray. Law enforcement like Robocop and Horatio Caine made the police more trustworthy.
Though there were the good, there were also the bad and the ugly. Villains like Doctor Doom, Cybermen, Queen Slug-For-a-But, and King Sombra, along with others, have always tried to take over or destroy our homes. But every time they try, they fail, thanks to the characters willing to help. Even when they acknowledged the fact they are works of fiction, they still try to help us any way they can.

A month later after they have been, and still, appearing, that ferret came back. It broadcasted this speech worldwide: “There will be competitions being withheld everywhere. It will be of all and any kind of event. A test of strength, endurance, knowledge, and many more will be happening. I will be selecting the many characters you know and love or hate, and pit them in a competition that suits well. Many of you will be able to participate as judges, and many of you will be able to assist me as how the competition will play out.” It was on every T.V., every phone, radio, iPOD, you name it. Apparently the reason they were all summoned was because of competition. No one knows why exactly the ferret wanted to do this; fame, amusement, curiosity, who knew. Ever since then, we have been seeing a lot of fight happening. It would be on every T.V. channel, every forum, and on live streaming. Everyone was always hoping that the next fight would be better than the last. These matches would go on for hours and hours, but they were always entertaining. And if you’re wondering how we were even safe from most of the fight with the likes of characters like Galactus and Slenderman, the ferret would conjure up special arenas in another plane of existence and have them battle while he would somehow broadcast it.
That didn’t mean that we couldn’t hang around with the characters. Even the villains would hang around in their own way. When I say hang around, I really mean hang around. It would always only be after a match was over, but it was still something surprising. It was the first time I ever saw an Iron Giant befriend the 10th incarnation of the Doctor. And it was also baffling to see Doctor Doom being scared of the yellow pony named Fluttershy from just her staring at him.

Battles have been fought, won, lost, tied, and ended, but they were always a treat to watch. People loved them; people have been suggesting more matches, even getting more creative such as having sporting events with them and even eating contests. Two-on-Two, 4 Fighter Free For All, Two-on-One, even Two-on-Two-on-Two. These fights would either create conflict, or friendship. Fans everywhere would argue about why someone should have won and people have gotten together because of how much they enjoyed spending time watching how well the match was. But two things were in everyone’s mind: Will they be able to socialize with them? When will they go back?
They have gained so much popularity, more and more of these unique characters were appearing, and they haven’t gotten the chance to talk to them. It only took two of them to start: Goku and Superman. They were the talk of the entire restaurant and even the workers stopped to talk to customers about how cool it was to have the tenacious saiyan and the man of steel in there. It was then a boy walked up to him when they were just minding their own business enjoying a meal at a Dennys. Before he could ask Goku or Superman anything, the restaurant manager went to him and asked him to leave because he “Didn’t want to litter the place with worthless hobos”. He was about to kick him out of the place, until Goku grabbed his shoulder and gave him a smile: “If it’s alright, maybe you could give him some ice cream?”. The manager was about to argue about how he’s just a homeless “brat”, but then he remembered how strong they were from the conversations he has overheard from some of his employees. The kid got his ice cream, and has been talking with Goku and Superman for a while. This got people thinking maybe they were allowed to talk to the characters. The ferret didn’t say NOT to talk to them, so they thought why not. So then, everyone talked to a lot of characters, and not one of them HAVEN’T been talked to. Even the feared and underappreciated people like Poison Ivy and the live action movie version of Goku .
People now were living in how they wanted with them here.

It was time.
That one question that everyone had hoped would never be answered: When will they go back?
In a month.
The ferret had made his appearance. But something was different about it. When he spoke on how everyone will be going in a moth, he had sadness….sorrow in his voice. This mysterious creature of unknown origin that has had almost every character in fictional history appears in our world for sport and competition with no real intention….was sad. Not only that, but we were all as well saddened by this.
We had all met characters we know to love or had meet because of how new they were to us, and had bonded with them some way, shape or form. Some of them even had relationships beyond friendship with some of them (It was in the news on how a man named Anon was marrying a female alien called a Skrull).
We have decided that in celebration on how much fun we had with these characters, we would not only hold parties for the ones we have meet and got along with, but have one more fight with them.
The parties were spectacular. Everyone was having a good time. Even the villains were having their own fun with the henchmen and criminals they had work under their wing. Sonic and Wally West were competing on who was fastest at Guitar Hero, Wolverine was having a drinking contest with Grunge, and Ranma was teaching Scott Pilgrim some new techniques like his famous Moko Takabisha.
Then the fight started.
Man oh man the fights.
Vegeta vs Doomsday.
Hal Jordan vs Silver Surfer.
Iron Man vs Ken Masters
The match ups were astounding.
They were not holding back this time. It might have been the last time they would even fight someone out of their own homes and they were gonna go all out.
August 24, 2014
It’s been a whole year since the day they went away. After all that fighting, they have said their good byes not only to each other, but to us as well. Normal citizens. They thanked us for actually giving most of them a chance.
Everyone left, but two. It were the two big guys.
Goku and Superman.
The ferret would have us see one last fight between the two titans.
The fight lasted for 5 hours and was just the best way to end all the fun.
As I hold this pendant in remembrance of all the times I spent with the characters. It was the head of the ferret with a lightning bolt in the back of it. Simple, yet memorable. It was a thank you to that Electric Ferret that we got to see the fight to end all fights.
No one remembered who won that fight.
It was all up for the people to decide.
But we can all agree: It was the best time of our lives.

It was one hell of a ride
