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


Except that would shut Rank 5's (such as yours truly) and Rank 4's out.

As for actual ideas... ATM I got nothin'. *shrugs*

Oh sorry I forgot about you lower Ranks. :P

I say make everyone then do a story explaining two characters from different Universes having to partner up for the first time against a common match up. It can't be DC or Marvel.

My one thought is that if we want to dig into the depths of the database that we make it so the fights can't be actual physical confrontations. Make them have to be dance contests, or races, or game show contestants, etc.

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.


That's actually an interesting one, but we could open it up a bit. A known hero goes evil (no mind control). The story could revolve around three primary elements:
1 - Why he goes bad
2 - What he does when he goes bad
3.- Who goes about fighting him and why (so in this case it could indeed be his typical enemy).

Oh I really like the role reversal theme.Oh boy what a interesting challenge it would be if someone tried to explain how Joker turns good.

We could always do a magic vs. technology. Harry Potter could always take on Skynet or Robocop could take on Lord Voldemort.

It'd be nice if we could get a few more suggestions in here, so I'll try providing a few.

Betrayal: Two fomerly good friends end up on opposite sides of a conflict. Doesn't matter what, a war, a battle, a dance competition, whatever. Two friends end up fighting in some way.

Love: One character is doing his damndest to make another character fall in love with them. Could be from the same setting, could be different ones. Hell, doesn't have to be resolved. It could just be their first meeting that sparks a flame, or their wedding day.

Poem/Song: This set up has to be in poem or song form. The longer the better.

Freeform constricted: Whatever you want, but it has to be under over 5,000 words.

The aforementioned role reversal: Write an alternate reality version where a good guy is a villain, and where the villain is the good guy. Example, a world where Batman is evil and the Joker is a good guy. A world where the Z Fighters are powerhungry dictators and Cell, Android 17 and 18, Freiza, etc are good guys trying to free Earth. Why these people are good/bad and why they are fighting is up to you.

Since im new not sure if this has been done before but how about the match has to draw influence from a particular song and the song must be posted in the setup as well. I think this would be a cool idea vor next month.

Some themes for July:

Since July in the USA means Independence Day, how about a time travel/history related story? A character gets sent to the year 1776 and can completely change the course of the Revolutionary War. It doesn't even have to be USA related, just any very important time in history. Maybe Lex Luthor goes back in time to the Stone Ages and starts ruling then? Or if you have a character that lived through major wars like Wolverine, you could have him change a certain battle or something along those lines.

I was thinking if some random person on the street gained Dr. Manhattan-like powers, how would they deal with it?. This person could be even yourself. I think it'd be cool to read what fellow EFers would do with such power.

Another one that can be about yourself is if you gained immortality. How would you(or maybe a character you made up) deal with out living anyone you will ever know? To the point where sun explodes the Earth and you float aimlessly through space, would you find other life? Would you meet a god-like entity? Could you find a way to end your life?

I'm thinking of something along the lines of introducing certain characters to an atmosphere totally opposite to what they're used to, or writing the series and characters in a style intrinsically different than what was originally intended.

Like, making Warhammer 40K a kids-themed setting whilst warping Hello Kitty into a crapsack world of horrific proportions.

Detective vs. thieves: Take a fictional detective and place him against a fictional thief. Ex: Dick Tracy vs. Catwoman, The Question vs. Nami (One Piece), Hellblazer vs. Ganondorf of the Enchanted Thieves, Batman vs. Lupin the Third.

Time Warp: Take a CBUB character and revamp them into another time period.

Man vs. Beast: Take a non-powered hero and put him against a fictional beast.

Obstacle course: take two non-powered heroes and place them in a famous obstacle course. Who succeeds? Ex: Tarzan and Flash Gordan vs. Ninja Warrior, Alice in Wonderland and Dorothy vs. the Labyrinth, Spongebob and Dora vs. Wipeout, Finn the Human and Ax Cop vs. Arcades Death Traps, Captain America and Batman vs. American Gladiator, but the Gladiators are villains.

Kid Fight: Pick a pair of kids to do battle.

Post me some new ideas for February!

I gots me a couple:

Black HIstory Month Challenge - All characters must be black. Simple
Challenge Treach! - All participants must write a battle using the same characters. The catch? They must write against me.
Valentine Challenge - Must a match revolving around the two characters being in love, falling in love or falling out of love.
The under 100 words challenge - Write a match in under 100 words.
