  1. This has been one hell of a CBUB debate. Really a good throwdown. I'm siding with Raphael argument. Cass is the physical underdog and fighting out of her weight class. Nothing unusual for her but we are using MMA rules, so I think that favors Raph. Even if slightly.

  2. The reality is that the site has been running for over a year with no issues until a couple people decided to use my writing tournament to push their political views. It's completely inexplicable. We don't even talk about those topics here. With so many other websites out there for that kind of thing, why here? Anyways, the kind of people who are going to do that need to go elsewhere.

  3. At first glance, Merida has a good advantage here, in that this was the plot of her movie, however, the keyword here is "gracefully," as Pizzaguy pointed out last time. Merida does technically have experience in this category, but I wouldn't exactly call it graceful. In fact, I would outright call it graceless. While by the end of the movie she gives a good speech about her independence, that's largely because her mother was coaching her, if memory serves. I think Mulan is generally more socially graceful, and just as, if not more, independent than Merida.

  5. Heh, I vividly remember Tinker Bell convincing the Lost Boys to attack a "Wendybird" in the first Peter Pan Disney film. The chick's definitely had murderous intent before.

  8. Mr. Miyagi did the prompt basically to a T in the Karate Kid though. He took a kid who was pretty much a talentless screw-up and trained him better than people who had been training in martial arts for years. That's literally the prompt. Apollo only trained someone who already had incredibly good fundamentals and just needed help with the specifics of boxing. Miyagi effectively already did the prompt, Apollo really hasn't, so Miyagi should win

  11. I like it. And I say Gert and the gang can do it. GI Joe is a tough opponent but she really is innocent so even though they're mad at her as soon as she can show them the real bad guys they'll gudgingly get off her case.

  12. Just for fun, who would win if it was a combat scenario? My initial money is on Raya But yeah, unfortunate pull for Raya here

  13. I think Merida has a pretty big advantage in just how ungraceful Fiona is. Merida puts away her suitors in a manner that was bombastic, but I think she is capable of more grace than Fiona, most of who’s character is based around her being ungraceful and having ogre shenanigans.

  14. I think Dr. Crusher is better suited to this. At the end of the day, the EMH is a stop gap that grew into something more. Dr. Crusher is on starfleet's flagship.

  16. Getting good. I like this. I guess the Power Rangers would win. Although I wonder what you would do if they didn't. Probably ignore it do what you want anyway.

  20. Penny would likely have to quickly become a scrappy survivalist like Newt in Aliens to have a chance here. She is about Newt's age and size, so she could maybe crawl into spaces that most of the Aliens couldn't. Would the Runners catch up to her before she could think to do that, though?

  21. Damn, now that that image is in my head, it will never leave me. Gonna have to log off my computer now, drink some water, then lay back down on my bed and slowly come to terms with the fact that the seemingly innocent Princess Aurora was such a killer.

  22. I just wanted to say that this whole thing is a pretty cool concept and I need to catch up because I have missed many of the recent fights. Also I agree with Pizzaguy that Ivy is the heavy hitter in this group.

  23. I'm gonna give this to Namora. Jaws doesn't seem to be like a major threat to her.

  24. While I do acknowledge that the Morphin Grid is capable of protecting the Rangers, I don't believe that it makes them impervious against the Xenomorph's corrosive acid. It can be overwhelmed as seen many times in the Rangers franchise. So... let's take a look at a scientific analysis of the Xenomorph's acid. In my opinion, the Xenomorph acid is something so very acidic that it surpasses something like Hydroflouric Acid and possibly even Flouromantic Acid. I can see the Rangers armor at least slowing down the corrosive properties to a degree but splashed with a good amount or more than once... That acid is going to overwhelm the Morphin Grid energy which protects the Rangers and burn through their armor and suits, possibly injuring or killing them in the process.

  25. Good entry, Movie-Brat. The exposition was pretty on-point, if not some of the sentence structure. As for the match, I think Namora should beat Jaws pretty handily, as well as most ocean creatures.

  26. Looks to me like some may have forgotten to vote on a winner in this one. I'm pretty sure I voted for the Cybermen myself, though.

  27. If we take Aliens: Colonial Marines feats as canon, then the Queen is durable enough to tank pulse rifle fire and grenades. And on paper they should be more powerful weapons what the ED-209 has by virtue of them being military grade weapons from the year 2179, while the ED’s are from 2028 and were intended to be used by a police robot.

  28. Hmmm... This one is going to be tough to decide... Although something tells me to go with Team One here! I just feel like they would have the better team dynamic as far as I can surmise!

  32. Heh, just about every '80's 'toon set in the modern age had at least one time travel episode. Yeah, Penny could possibly survive the Savage Land for 24 hours, but it won't be easy, and I give her little hope beyond that without assistance. She'd not only have to worry about the dinosaurs and the terrain, but also the native tribes and the Mutates.

  33. Eck, I've missed out on a few matches this week. Pretty good set-up, Movie-Brat. If the Cybermen are virtually indestructible, though, I don't Splinter stands much of, if any chance here. As mentioned, his best option may be to try to retreat.

  34. I think Shego fits the mold the same way Penny fits the mold as laid out in the original posting since Kim Possible is definitely a comedic show. It was stated the sidekick themselves didn't have to be comedic. I was thinking of picking Kato myself, but I didn't think of Green Hornet as a comedic show, wasn't even thinking about the movie.

  36. I think Penny has a chance here, she's resourceful and smart. I think she could survive at least a day which is the bare minimum required to win.

  37. This is pretty damn tough and Hayabusa is my guy. He definitely has worked on some major infiltration missions between the DOA games and his own Ninja Gaiden series. I know Snake Eyes works with the Joes. But I think this slightly favors Ryu.

  38. If someone could explain how Kato and Shego got into a 'Comedy' sidekick slot, I'd appreciate it. Not knocking the people who chose them, I just thought we were choosing comedic sidekicks for this slot.

  40. Congratulations on your first tournament win, @leroypowell3! IIRC, you came in a good second place the last time you made a tournament match, and now you've earned your place in the HoF! Go out and celebrate! It had been quiet lately. That meant that The Dominion was planning something big. No one could guess what that something was so beyond standing vigilance, there was nothing anyone could do but wait for the attack. Captain Benjamin Sisko studied the battle logs. His intent was to analyze the Federation victories and learn what worked. Most likely they wouldn’t work again, but he would also know what the Dominion would be expecting. The peace and quiet was nice but he had instructed the DS9 crew to come in something needed his attention. Lieutenant Commander Worf did just that. Instantly he could feel the Klingon’s anger. “Captain. There a problem.” “What’s wrong, Mr. Worf?” “This new cadet- Urkel.” He said the name with such vile that Sisko became concerned. “What’s wrong with him?” “I think he is a spy.” Sisko almost came out of his chair. His hands were already in position to push himself up. “That’s a serious accusation. I hope you have some evidence.” Worf stiffened. His fists clenched over and over. “Sir, there is no way anyone is capable of such… buffoonery.” “Go on.” said Sisko. “I can’t explain it. I spent two minutes with him and I want to kill him.” “I’m afraid you’ll have to do better than that Mr. Worf. Killing fellow Starfleet personnel is unacceptable.” In came Jadzia Dax. “Benjamin, this Urkel guy has gotta go!” Sisko glared at her. “Do you know who I’m talking about?” she wondered. “I’ve heard about him yes.” He eyed the teeth-grinding Worf. “He snorts!” Dax smarted. “Snorts?” “Snorts!” Dax demonstrated the sound. “What’s wrong with that?” “It’s annoying!” Both Dax and Worf said together. “Well I’m sure he can’t help it.” Sisko leaned back indicating his dismissal of their feelings. “It’s a part of the act.” declared Worf. Dax whirled to face him. “Is that what you think? It’s and act?” “Yes. He is clearly here to disrupt our effectiveness.” “Mr. Worf believes he is a spy.” Sisko clarified Worf’s accusation. Dax pondered the charge. “That would explain some things.” “As I told the captain, it is impossible that this man could be this infuriating. Clearly something sinister is at play.” Now came Odo. “Captain Sisko! This new arrival is a menace!” “Are you talking about..?” “Cadet Urkel!” snarled Odo. “He started a dance party in the commons area! People began wearing their trousers up to their armpits! It’s an atrocity!” “Take a breath Constable.” Siskso said calmly. “This Urkel fellow can not stay on this station! He must be reassigned!” ‘The whole crew is against him.’ Sisko thought to himself. Next came Major Kira Nerys. “Captain have you met this new guy Urkel?” “What is your problem with him?” the weariness blended with his question. “He keeps getting in the way. He’s supposedly trying to help but…” “He’s making things worse!” Dax, Odo and Worf said together. Sisko rose to his feet. “Alright that’s enough all of you! While you’re in here whining about a new cadet, you are not doing you duties! Get back to your tasks and leave this man be!” “But...” Dax began. “But nothing! If the lot of you can’t handle a green cadet how are you going to defeat the Dominion?” The senior Deep Space Nine crew exited, just as the doors were closing he could hear them begin to exchange complaints. How could a young cadet rattle the crew this way? He was about to request Urkel’s file log on the computer but then he thought maybe it would be a better idea if he went to see the man in person. “Computer, locate Cadet Urkel!” he commanded. The speakers chirped and DS9’s monotonous voice answered promptly. “Cadet Urkel is in engineering.” A bit unsure of what he would find, Sisko hesitated. But if his senior crew all had a problem with him he’d better check this guy out. As soon as the door opened, yelling welcomed him. “Get out of here! Get out!” That was Chief O’Brian. Everyone else was staring in certain direction so Sisko looked there. He couldn’t believe his eyes. An enraged Miles O’Brian- waving a phaser as if it were a butcher knife in front of a skinny youth. This had to be Urkel. Upon spotting him the first thing to affront Sisko’s mind was ‘why is he wearing suspenders?’ On top of that, his pants were pulled up to his chest. Where did he get socks that ugly? And were those eye glasses on his face? This was an insult to Starfleet tailoring. “Mr. O’Brian!” Sisko bellowed. The command voice ended the altercation. Everything about O’Brian softened. “Captain...” “Mr. O’Brian, what do you think you’re doing?!” “It’s Urkel, sir!” his anger immediately returned. “He thought phasers could enhance the power output!” Sisko made a face. “What?” “If I didn’t know any better I’d think he was trying to blow up the station!” O’Brian added. “Urkel,” Sisko marched angrily toward the ‘nerd’. “You’d better have a very good explanation for this!” “Captain Sisko. I know what it sounds like. But I’ve run the simulations and firing a phaser blast into the station’s power core does increase power output by at least 5 percent. As long as you do it carefully.” To hear him admit it… proudly, left Sisko flabbergasted. “Mr. Urkel if you wish to conduct experiments you must clear them with Chief O’Brian and myself. Is that clear?” “Perfectly sir.” Urkel said cheerfully. “So I guess I should tell you about my next experiment. I need a quart of antimatter. Romulan ale and the remains of Captain Kirk. Oh and I need to borrow The Defiant for a few hours.” Sisko’s nose flared. “You cannot be serious.” Urkel seemed oblivious to the Captain’s anger. “Well a runabout will do but The Defiant would be better.” With a tight fist and a single destructive finger erect, Captain Sisko addressed the cadet vehomently. “Urkel! You listen and listen good! You will never make it in Starfleet if you don’t learn...” He almost didn’t hear his comm badge chime. “Captain Sisko to the bridge right away please. Captain Sisko to the bridge right away.” If there was a time he wanted to ignore the page more than now, he didn’t know but duty called and he answered. “I’ll be right there.” A mean glare at Urkel and Sisko spun on his heels and marched away steam fuming from his bald head. Fight Parameters: So Steve Urkel is a Starfleet cadet recently assigned to Deep Space Nine. The whole caste hates him because- well he’s Urkel. Vote for Urkel if you think he can win them over and become a halfway competent Starfleet officer. Vote for Deep Space Nine if you think they can get Captain Sisko to have him transferred somewhere else (maybe let Picard deal him).
