Okay, just off the top of my head:

Choose two non-powered (i.e regular humans) characters, and pit them against one another in something other than a fight. The "battle" can be anything from a cooking contest to a surfing competition, as long as it's not a direct, physical fight.

I have a few ideas:

- creating an underwater race between water based heroes and villains.
- A character from the Toon genre must hunt a creature of sub-human intelligence.
- A vehicle only battle. Two vehicles must battle it out.
- Video game challenge. Two street level human characters from any genre must make it through a tough video game board (IE: Racoon City, Call of Duty 4 Mile High Mission, Super Mario Brothers Final stage (Original)
- Girl Fight - A bunch of girls have to fight. All girls.

If more 'specific' themes are welcomed, then I have quite a few that I had intended to use for my own monthly writing challenge. Mostly in the form of questions, that should then be answered by the story.

Examples: "How does an immortal being, handle when being faced with his/her own imminent death?" "How does a (relatively)normal human, react when suddenly gaining god-like power?"

I'm thinking of sadistic villains guest starring on some of our most hated Reality TV shows, and then watching what happens.

I quite like the idea of loss being a theme. When the main character loses someone or something close to them it can lead to a lot of other ideas in the theme pool such as madness, revenge, action etc but the hurt caused by and reaction to the loss is at the centre of the story.

The classic example of course would be Batman losing Alfred to an enemy (or even through the inaction of a friend).

Sorry about not posting here earlier. I was, you know, into All-Star Weekend, heh, and I've also been under the weather all day today.

As for a match idea, how about characters competing in an individual sport (i.e., billiards or tennis)?

How 'bout some kind of basketball match? ;)

Working of one of the 9 MAJOR sins or 9 layers of Hell.


Region iv: Traitors to their lords


You can see how much of a mind control device medieval religion really was. The absolute bottom layer of Hell, the place for the most unforgiveable sin.... Those who betray their lords.

Two characters of the opposite sex against two other characters in a competition other than fighting

Two characters that hate each other teaming up against a common enemy

You're very late, man. The theme for this month's challenge has already been decided:

  • Theme of "Game masters", characters who have game based attributes and would have matches deciding who's the King of Games.
  • Pet show? A little bit weird but certainly original. We'd have like Ace, Krypto, Thor's frog, maybe a few MLP FIM pets if anyone is inclined to add them, Mega man's dog, Bronx, etc.
  • International Battle Royale, Writers pick a country, and characters created non fictionally in that country, and pit them against other characters from a different country (for ex: Batman, USA, Goku, Japan, Pocong, Malaysia, etc,)

Some ideas for theme.

1. Make a match with characters from the CBUB Top Contenders list.
2. Make a match with manga vs comic characters. (No DBZ)
3. Make a match that pits the Movie Genre's iconic characters vs Comics. ( Say Godfather vs Kingpin)

Theme ideas:

1.) Old Skool fiction vs New School fiction- (Beowolf vs Godzilla)

2.) "King of the Theme" Battle Royal (4 popular fighters of "close enough" power)- (Hulk vs Superman vs Thor vs Shazam) or (Jason vs Micheal Myers vs Freddy vs Leatherface).

3.) David vs Goliath (big size differences, but close in power)- (Heracles vs Leviathan)

Meh, I'm not that great for theme ideas, but what if the characters engaged in a debate of some kind?

I like the idea of a role reversal where either a hero is a villain and a villain a hero. For instance, a setting where Batman is and has always been evil and where the Joker was and has always been good. It would have to be a pair that is well known and in the same setting, like Batman and the Joker, Superman and Lex Luthor, not... I don't know, evil Goku and good Sephiroth.

Battle of the bands. Looks like a few are in that database but then again there are characters with music talent of their own who could just create a band of their own for this. Someone like Homer for example.

I guess my suggestions would be combinations of either

Horror/Survival:

One character had to be unused and the other doesn't matter. One has to be from the horror category and the other one can be from any category. Like the title, it will be a survival and it doesn't matter what kind of survival horror.

or

Past vs. Present or Future

I don't really know what the right title for this one is but I like the idea of old versus new. Some from the past fighting some from either the present or the future.

Make a three on three match without the use of DC and Marvel characters.
