Week 74: Joel vs. Talo


LAAAAAADIES AND GENTLEMEN! Come one, come all to the TEMPLE. OF. COURAGE!!! In our glorious semi-consecutive series of battles, we have now come to our 74th showdown! And this week, our brave duelists wield not swords, but sticks! The theory of "sticks and stones may break my bones" will be put to the test tonight! Draw your eyes to the center ring...

In the blue corner, we have a happy little chap who lives with his family on Outset Island. He idolizes Link, and his skill with a stick is unparalleled across the Great Sea...THIS. IS. JOOOOOOOOOOEL!!!

In the red corner is a courageous, if pigheaded youth from Ordon Village. Brother of Malo and another admirer of Link...has performed such feats of wonderment with the stick that would impress even the most battle-worn stick warrior...THIS. IS. TAAAAAAAAAAALO!!!!

Buy your commemorative foam stick from the souvenir stand today! And now, let's hear it for both of our contestants as they step into the ring...LEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET'S GET RRRRRRRRRREADY TO RRRRRRRUMMMMMMBLE!!!

Votes for Joel

  1. He wins because he has to put up with his brother's snot all day, every day. You have to be hardcore to survive that. Metroidhunter32 22:41, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
  2. I hate the person to the right as well as the rest of the Ordon Village children. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 23:24, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
  3. Talo never really interested me much. Joel didn't either until the issue about the family eating their pet pigs came up, with the mother trying to shut Joel and Zill up. That was priceless. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 00:27, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
  4. I found Talo to be really annoying, and Joel has the better stick. --Birdman5589 (talk) 00:28, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
  5. Unlike Malo, Talo was an unlikeable jerk. Joel and Zill remind me of two people that once lived near me, so I felt a sort of connection to them and their family when I played Wind Waker. Portal-Kombat
  6. Because I can't bear Talo. --Yowuza yadderhouse | meh 20:03, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
  7. Simply because Joel is so much awesomer than Talo, I mean he wants to jump across boulders just like Link... OH YEAH!!! Jzonanos Lomeatheaun 17:36, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

Anonymous votes

  1. I vote for Mole (JOEL!!! [INSERT ANGRY FACE HERE] ) because he does not steal your sword then runs after a monkey.
  2. I kinda forgot about both guys, but now I see them and I must say I just like this one better.
  3. Joel - 'cos he looks soo much more awesome!
  4. They Were both annoying but Joel was not as bad as Talo.
  5. talo looks like chucky and windwaker is faaaaarrr better than TP. joel gets my vote.

Votes for Talo

  1. He's a badass in his own way. Also, his cries of "yay" are so completely ambiguous as to whether or not they were a compliment or a comment on Link's innate level of fail. Joel receives some minor sympathy points for being the first thing I took of a screenshot of in TWW. But it's not enough. It's better than a sharp stick in the eye, at least. --AuronKaizer! 22:09, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
  2. Well, I dunno, I just didn't really like Joel or his family. His mom is fat and his brother really needs a tissue. Besides, Talo has a bigger stick. —Lisa URAQT Click it. You know you want to. Do it 22:15, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
  3. I'd feel like an a-hole if I didn't vote for my favorite character's brother.--MaloMart (talk)Malo.png 23:09, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
  4. Joel never really interested me in the slightest. At least Talo's antics could be comical on occasion. Jedimasterlink (talk) 23:57, November 22, 2009 (UTC)
  5. Talo actually has some meaning to the plot, while Joel is only indirectly connected to a minor side quest. LapisScarab (talk) 03:15, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
  6. He is the nightmare to anyone...under the age of 6.--RH 17:43, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
  7. Well his brother is malo user:armageddon1844
  8. I laughed when I first tried to enter Kakariko as a wolf and he screamed to warn everyone. Oddball 464 02:14, November 24, 2009 (UTC)
  9. There is no way around it...I rarely spent anytime talking to or being annoyed by Joel. Talo, on the other hand, had much more in game content for me. So I go with the one that more quickly personifies the traits and qualities that made them similar. pauj
  10. Talo, please. Badass-in-training. Not to mention props for putting up with Beth. She'd drive me crazy wolfsvalentine
  11. Talo is just so much cooler. 'Nuff said. --Nunovanhalen (talk) 17:17, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
  12. Talo is badass 'nuff said--Ooccoo jr (talk) 18:54, November 25, 2009 (UTC)
  13. This battle would've been fun to watch. Anyways, Joel has no importance in the plot, he's just there. Malo is not my favorite character but he is far cooler. User:Snakeboss14
  14. Talo KICKS. ANYBODY'S. ***. --Z31T)6311 08:12, November 27, 2009 (UTC), your man of the world.
  15. I was gonna vote for the other guy, but he never. Ever. Does ANYTHING important in the game. Even though Talo is really annoying he still beats Joel. And anonymous voter number six...I can't think of anything to say to that...I have no idea if you made that mistake on purpose....? - Twili Tetra
  16. I only vote for him because...... I want to. --Randomnessity

Anonymous votes

  1. He's the brother of Malo, he actually uses the stick as a sword. 'nuff said
  2. I just never really liked Wind Waker that much.
  3. He was trained by Link, how do you beat that?
  4. He steals swords, chases after monkeys, jumps up and down like an immature baby, and cries as well. Joel is just a wus.
  5. Kid with a big stick and training with it versus some wimp whose bro really needs some meds 4 his annoying cold? No question!
  6. I hate them both but, I guess I'll vote for her
  7. If Link trains him hard enough, he could also become a hero
  8. better game, better fighter. 'nuff said
  9. Cooler, Malo is.-Yoda
  10. Well, Talo has a bigger stick, and he actually USES it.
  11. Talo's kind of creepy looking.
  12. Twilight beats WW any day

EveryDayJoe, if I'm ever running against you for a political office, would you mind if I quote you saying that you hate children?--MaloMart (talk) Malo.png 05:37, November 23, 2009 (UTC)

Well seeing as Joel is a kid too... --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 07:01, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
In my first playthrough, I thought Talo, Malo and Colin were female, for some reason.--RH 17:48, November 23, 2009 (UTC)
Wait, Talo and Malo are guys? but I played the whole game... Turtleman579 06:41, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
I can understand thinking Talo is girl, but Malo?--MaloMart (talk) Malo.png 07:02, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
HARR HARR! GIRLS WHERE YOU'RE FROM MUST BE UGLY AS HECK! HARR HARR!!! --AuronKaizer! 15:46, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
and his skill with a stick is unparalleled across the Great Sea... Anyone want to change that to sound a little less...ummm? Hylianhero777
A more permanent fix would be to see a shrink about your weird imagination. --AuronKaizer! 20:29, November 23, 2009 (UTC)

LOL, Talo anonymous vote 6, Talo's a guy. Jedimasterlink (talk) 01:17, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

What have I done?!--RH 18:32, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
You're fulfilling your destiny. --AuronKaizer! 23:12, November 26, 2009 (UTC)
Become my apprentice. Learn from the Dark Side of the Force. (This is just brimming with irony...) Jedimasterlink (talk) 21:22, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
JML, it's even better than you think, I'm a big-time Star Wars fan, too. I can do a perfect Palpatine voice as a matter of fact--RH 03:26, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
That's my special talent! --AuronKaizer! 03:29, November 28, 2009 (UTC)
OMG are you serious?! things have officially gotten bizzare. I accidentally start a cross-dressing conspiracy, a jedi tells a zombie hunting jedi to turn to the dark side, followed by the knowledge that me and AK share the talent to impersonate science-fiction dictators. WHAT NEXT?!--RH 04:16, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Week 73: Bellumbeck vs. Possessed Zelda

Possessed Zelda
Possessed Zelda.png
Possessed Zelda.png

LLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AND GENTLEMEN! We are now proud to present to you the 73rd week in the TEMPLE. OF. COURAGE! And now, for your weekly entertainment, we have brought together two possessees for the ultimate Last-Ditch-Effort Match!

In the dark purple corner, we have a Phantom Guard to trump all others. Possessing none other than the Ocean King World's finest sailor, he has a massive sword, deals a deadly spin attack, and is only weak to the power of time; Let's hear it for BELLUMBEEEEEEEEEEEECK!

And in the dark green corner, we have a lovely young lady with pale green skin. Possessed by the King of Evil, she is able to summon the Power of the Triforce, fly around at high speeds, and blasts energy balls around; Give it up for POSSESSED ZELLLLLLLLLLLLDA!

So, two innocents possessed by the ultimate evils shall now clash swords tonight. But who shall remain so forever? That, my dear voters, is up to you! I like my mind where it is, so LLLLLLLLLLLLLLET'S GET READY TO RUMBLLLLLLLLLLLLE! Yeah!

Votes for Bellumbeck

  1. As much as I loved the whole concept of a possessed Princess Zelda, I voting against her since it was another boss battle where you had to volley magic back and forth. --Birdman5589 (talk) 03:59, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  2. Dang, Bellumbeck's getting creamed. Well, what can I say? All four phases of the final fight in TP were so uninteresting I hardly remember exactly what you're supposed to do, a rarity in boss fights for me. You can say that the concept of Zelda being possessed is cool all you like, but the sheer mediocrity of the fight itself sadly outweighs whatever epicness I could have felt that fight gained. Bellumbeck was a dumb concept, but the fight was quite fun and at least somewhat inventive. Also, Linebeck = instant win, even when being possessed by the lamest villain in the series. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 07:21, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  3. The cinematic where Bellumbeck is created is actually kinda cool IMO, and he's actually a challenge. I beat P. Zelda without taking damage every time (except that one time when I Back Sliced to dodge that triangle attack and I was too close). Diachronos (talk) 12:41, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  4. Its possibly the only good character in Phantom hour glass in a suit of armor. How cant you love that. although one of the worst characters in the series is the armor anyway go Lnebeck Oni Dark Link 16:39, November 16, 2009 (UTC)"
  5. (To Anon Vote #1) "Too scary"? That fight wasn't scary at all! Mr kmil 21:44, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  6. Although I have never actually fought Bellumbeck (just seen others do so), I was unhappy with the lack of imagination that it took in the Possessed Zelda fight. The fact that all it took was a quick dodge here and there and a bat back didn't really catch my fancy. pauj
  7. I rather fight against Bellumbeck than with Possessed Zelda, because the Bellumbeck fight is more exciting and harder, Plus, I think that Bellum is one of the most bizzarres (if not the most) antagonist in the series. User:The Traveler Sword
  8. Possessed Zelda = Dead Man's Volley = unoriginal. Bellumbeck = stopping time = original. Whirligig (talk) 03:13, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
  9. I have not played either battle, but after reading both pages and watching the Possessed Zelda fight, I want to side with Bellumbeck since the Possessed Zelda fight only seemed aesthetically pleasing, but dull. Green but Ready; 12:16, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
  10. You have to admit this fight has style. It's the first time you can counter a Hurricane Spin with one of your own, and the fact that Bellum has control of your fellow captain, trying to leech his life force away for his own benefit is just diabolical. If this boss had a heaping amount of deadly attacks like past final bosses, It would be a truly epic fight. The only thing is, Linebeck isn't too respectable anyway. Superpowered Mario (talk) 20:43, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
  11. I'll admit I've never played Phantom Hourglass before, but I hated the final TP boss fight so much that I have to vote for the other combatant. Plus, it's Linebeck for Nayru's sake, albeit a possessed form of him. Oddball 464 01:40, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
  12. Possessed Zelda is a classical Zelda fight. NOT COOL! Linebeck was just so awesome and I was just so angry at Bellum at this part... Besides, you can't kill him with regular abbilities. Besides, Linebeck's theme is awesome! {{SUBST:User:Snakeboss14/sig}} 21:52, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
  13. This fight was much more fun than just swinging the Wii Remote at the right time. I only hated that I could never draw an hourglass right, but it was fun. --Nunovanhalen (talk) 01:18, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

  1. Possessed Zelda is way too scary and Bellumbeck's fight was actually an original one. No dead man's volley. Besides, Bellumbeck carries a sword that looks like a darker version of the Gilded Sword.
  2. I'm actually torn between these two. In my opinion, they're both really lame boss fights (Zelda has yet to hurt me and Bellumbeck = "..."). I'm going to go for Bellumbeck because he actually did hit me and he has less votes.
  3. While he is easy for a final boss, he's totally BA, and you get to stop time when you're fighting him. How many other bosses can say that?
  4. Way more original and fun.
  5. I love something different once in a while :]
  6. Possessed Zelda was pretty sweet buuutttt easy...

Votes for Possessed Zelda

  1. Bellumbeck was so bloody hard to me, and Ganon getting to have that much power over Zelda is something I'd waited years to see. Because of that, I go with our possessed Princess. Sincerely, Watcher.
  2. Not that I'm a fan of Possessed Zelda, but Bellumbeck managed to make Linebeck uncool for a boss battle. We all know that if Link fought the real Linebeck in a boss battle he'd be picked up, shaken violently and thrown to the sharks. Portal-Kombat
  3. The concept of Zelda being possessed seems more epic to me. I mean, the namesake of the series is being overpowered by evil incarnate. How is that not awesome? Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:52, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  4. The possession of Zelda was a creepy and original move on the part of Nintendo. I liked it. Bellumbeck was just one of those "-_-" moments, in that a final boss after the final boss after the final boss is just cheap. Bad Hourglass memories coming back to me. --AuronKaizer! 04:07, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  5. My thoughts upon Zelda's possession were "Oh crap, Oh crap, Oh crap...Do I get arrested if I stab her?" where as Bellumbeck was more of a "...You're kidding right?" So yeah. Turtleman579 04:14, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  6. Bellumbeck was a joke. Plus Possessed Zelda had the classic energy ball volley.--DarkTriforce (talk) 18:28, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  7. I wonder if he/she/they/it/whatever had the Both the Triforces of Wisdom and Power?--RH 19:03, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  8. I have never personally fought Bellumbeck (got sick of going through Temple of the Ocean King so many times) but I've watched my friend play. I think Possessed Zelda was the better fight... Plus, the Zelda's Lullaby melody twisted into that dark song was chilling. Awesome. User3000
  9. Everything's pretty much been said, this battle seemed much more epic, what with the warped Zelda's Lulaby for music and that fact that it's Zelda. There's a trace of hero vs. hero in this battle, which is always more impressive to me. LapisScarab (talk) 22:35, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  10. I dunno, I liked the fight much more. And to be frank the PH final boss fight was terrible.-- C2 / CC 23:29, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
  11. She's a hot zombie chick. Auto-win. Metroidhunter32 01:12, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
  12. You can't beat a hot chick that's turned to the dark side. The Exterminator 01:31, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
  13. Phantom Hourglass was, in my opinion, the worst Legend of Zelda game, while Twilight Princess is the game with the most tense and drama full ambient. --SNA 20:43, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
  14. Bellumbeck was really hard for me, I really couldn't stop time cause it was so difficult to make those weird designs.--Bkarcher97 22:35, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
  15. Zelda being possessed was, as Auronkaizer said, very original and it was really hard to make the hourglass. War62
  16. I don't really have that much against Bellumbeck, except I knew about the fight before I got there, so there wasn't much surprise. And Twilight Princess was just SUCH an amazing game. The 4-part final boss I think worked very well, and Possessed Zelda was no exception -Swordsmanr
  17. My favourite boss is dark lord ganondorf besidesmajora. Possesed zelda is close enough. And, yes I said favourite. I live in canada, eh! Zeldafreak39
  18. Possesed zelda was my 1st final boss.[i think]. so i kind of have to vote for her. user:armageddon1844

Anonymous votes

  1. I think Possesed Zelda is a more funny boss than bellumbeck. Bellumbeck whas to easy and boring.
  2. Zelda was the best way to have a phantom ganon battle without having the ghost himself. And I have yet to hear anything good about PH
  3. Wows! When did this battle start-anyways... I liked both, but ultametly had to vote for possesed Zelda because She... or he... was harder and more fun and what not... also she-he is more fun to battle and creative than good ol` BellumBeck... also because of my comment here, I now know how to spell ``possesed`` of by heart *Sniff, sniff*!!! ZELDA ROCKS!!!
  4. I never played Twilight Princess but I'd have to agree with every one else... Bellumbeckbeck was too easy! (But I really liked PH.)
  5. Zelda was waaay more epic - sorry Bellumbeck!

Sorry about the confusion earlier...that was completely unintentional. Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:53, November 16, 2009 (UTC)

Don't worry, it's only a 99% pay cut. --AuronKaizer! 03:56, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Seeing that my current salary is a paltry $0.00, I think I can deal. (By the way, are you going to sign your vote, AK?) Jedimasterlink (talk) 04:03, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Actually, that means that your salary is in the minus, and you'll have to give US money. --AuronKaizer! 04:07, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Isn't it a good thing for him to have to pay US money? Wouldn't it be worse if he got paid in US dollars? --Birdman5589 (talk) 04:10, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
That's, umm, what...she said?? --AuronKaizer! 04:13, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah. Looking back that makes no sense. I blame the Engineering College from trying to steal my soul and in the process making my brain complete mush. --Birdman5589 (talk) 04:17, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
No, it makes sense. The value of the US dollar is so low it's negative. So I've giving away negative money, and in effect, I am gaining money. Win. Jedimasterlink (talk) 04:20, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
YES! Somebody understands my thinking. Maybe my brain isn't complete mush. But then that means I need to study for my test over Rigid Body Kinetics and Kinematics in Vector Mechanics Dynamics. NOOOOOO --Birdman5589 (talk) 04:24, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Only people with Operating Thetan Level 3 or above could understand that. --AuronKaizer! 04:28, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
And only a Scientologist or Google could understand that --Birdman5589 (talk) 04:35, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Or people who've watched South Park. --AuronKaizer! 04:39, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Good call. I've completely forgot about that episode. --Birdman5589 (talk) 04:43, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Guy's, we're doing it again(That's what she said!)--RH 19:08, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Actually, 99% of $0 is still $0... but if we're cheating people out of money then I'll just stand back and watch. User3000
Very true, but I though it would be more fun if I just went along with it, know what I mean? (And anyway, it appears I'm being cheated into getting money... o_0) Jedimasterlink (talk) 23:03, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Same thing actually, but totally different if your name wasn't not Fred but wanted it to not not be. I hate not being totally unconfusing. -- C2 / CC 23:32, November 16, 2009 (UTC)
Let's all play a game I call "Let's Count the negatives"... 1,2,3,4,5 or should it be 6. I don't know what to do. If your not totally unconfusing that doesn't make you confusing though or does? --Birdman5589 (talk) 00:26, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
1138. --AuronKaizer! 00:37, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

wait a second... 0 divided by 99 =....(universal destruction) Oni Dark Link 21:30, November 17, 2009 (UTC)

It wouldn't cause universal destruction. 0 divided by anything other than 0 is just 0. (0/0 = everything, and therefore, by definition, nothing. This does indeed have universal desctruction properties. 0/99, however, does not.) Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 23:24, November 17, 2009 (UTC)
Actually 0/0 is determinable using l'hopital's rule. Really just depends on the context of the equation.—Triforce 14Triforce4.png 21:27, December 1, 2009 (UTC)

Interesting. I expected this to become a game vs. game fight, but there is a surprisingly low number of such votes. And it's a relatively close fight. Sweetness. Jedimasterlink (talk) 02:08, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

I thought Bellumbeck would be getting a little more support since he's a little more original than Zelda possessed by Ganondorf fighting like a modified OoT Ganondorf. Diachronos (talk) 03:32, November 18, 2009 (UTC)
I thought this'd be a total game war. I thought the coming of 2012 were going to make people less liable to think non-fanboyish? --AuronKaizer! 08:08, November 18, 2009 (UTC)

Ummm, how does anybody find it that hard to draw an hourglass? Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 00:36, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Hah, guy misinterpreted what I said. Oh well. Anyways, the whole Hourglass/Triforce drawing can be tricky sometimes. --AuronKaizer! 00:55, November 19, 2009 (UTC)
I had a hard time with the sphere things until I figured out that the game wants you to draw an 8 when you're supposed to be drawing an hourglass. Diachronos (talk) 01:12, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

i had no problem with the hourglass but drawing the triforce...uh. Didnt relise you werent allowed go back on lines already drawen. I was there for a good twenty five minutes drawing and drawing slowly hating the game more and more Oni Dark Link 14:35, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

I enjoyed Phantom Hourglass, but damn, that Triforce was almost impossible to draw! LapisScarab (talk) 22:20, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

Maybe my DS is just more responsive than others. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 23:00, November 20, 2009 (UTC)

To XZ: No, mine is terrible, but it was really easy for me. To Oni & Scarab: Try drawing 2 sides, stop halfway on the 3rd, draw the smaller part, then finish the 3rd. Can't believe you said that was hard! The Exterminator 00:19, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

as soon as i realised you couldnt go back on your own lines it was done in a matter of moments. Oni Dark Link 00:23, November 21, 2009 (UTC) Oh, I got past it after a while and I knew how to draw the Triforce without lifting the pen or going over lines, but something was making the slab only half accept it and I had to do it again. It was probably something Iwas doing, but it was stil frustrating. LapisScarab (talk) 18:40, November 22, 2009 (UTC)

Week 72: Acheman vs. Vire


LLLLLLLLLLLADIES AND GENTLEMEN! We are now proud to present to you the 72nd week in the TEMPLE. OF. COURAGE! All right! And now, for your viewing and voting pleasure, we have gathered we have gotten together two demonic unions which just may result in the strangest tag-team match of all time!

In the browner corner, we have a devilish man-bat creature. Formed of two of his subordinate bats, this handsome fellow can shoot fireballs, prefers the element of surprise, and holds his ten experience points dearly. Let's hear it for AAAAAAAAAAAAACHEMAN!

And in the red, we see a squat, chubby devil-bat. Living only with the toughest of the tough, he two is composed of his lesser friends, has trouble moving in three dimensions, and hops about instead of flying. Put your hands together for VIIIIIIIIIIRE!

So, tonight two tag-team bat-demons shall face off in a battle to rock the ages. But who shall be decleared the most evil? That, my dear voters, is up to you! I can't think of any other way to stall, so LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLET'S GET READY TO RUMBLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLE! Yeah!

Votes for Acheman

  1. Personally, I find this guy to be just a little cooler. Odd how the sequel surpasses the original in this instanse. At least in my book. Sincerely, Watcher.
  2. That incarnation of Vire is just too easy to defeat. So, my vote goes to Acheman. Even though it's from Zelda II. Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:24, November 9, 2009 (UTC)
  3. Acheman has a great potential that should be exploited in future games. --Birdman5589 (talk) 04:43, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
  4. My props lie here, with one of the beasts that thoroughly made me angry in Zelda II. Fighting Acheman for only 10 experience points was not much fun. Thanks for making me angry.pauj
  5. How could one not vote for a demonic bat that transforms into an anthropomorphic being? Even if he is frustrating... Dialask77 Ice Wizard Ice Sorceror.png 23:09, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
  6. This guy strikes me as his name is more creative, cmon VIRE is jist 1 letter away from fire. Armageddon1844

  1. He won 3 superbowls. Vire just can't top that.

Votes for Vire

  1. Acheman's a nice idea, but Vire's an actual character, and I think he looks cooler. Diachronos (talk) 01:45, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
  2. The Acheman's artwork looks awesome for sure, but this is about the enemies themselves. And I just think Vire is better, especially if we're counting the Vire character from the Oracle games. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 01:47, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
  3. I like the way Vire's story changes in the Linked Games. Makes him sort of a developed character. That's pretty cool. Acheman was killed in five seconds. And he doesn't even yield that much experience. Pshaw. --AuronKaizer! 01:50, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
  4. Liked Vire's story more. -- C2 / CC 01:55, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
  5. They were fun to fight in the original so I guess they get my vote. It's close though. The Midna (talk) Midna Laughing.png 01:56, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
  6. Nothing to say!--Ironknuckle1 02:07, November 10, 2009 (UTC)
  7. At least they bothered to color him in. Portal-Kombat
  8. My vote goes to vire. He appeared in more games and I actually knew who he was! :-p HerofAwesome
  9. [shudder] I remember fighting this guy. My vote goes here! Oddball 464 01:34, November 11, 2009 (UTC)
  10. He's got four arms and the power of fire. I like that. DarxStar128

I wonder what all the Chuck Norris fanboys/fangirls will do once he dies. Probably go into denial and make up some lame reason why he doesn't need his body anymore or something. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 00:09, November 11, 2009 (UTC)

Is anyone actually voting for this fight? And what's with the super bowl comment anonymous 1 for acheman?--DarkTriforce (talk) 15:38, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

I'm assuming he's talking about Troy Aikman. At least the anonymous vote for Vire is almost as bad. Come on, Charizard? Really? Oh, well. I am surprised to see that Acheman has been keeping up with votes for the most part. --Birdman5589 (talk) 16:00, November 14, 2009 (UTC)
There are three reasons as to why I didn't make that joke already: A) It's not funny. B) It's not subtle. C) Football is a niche industry that almost nobody outside the USA know about. --AuronKaizer! 02:03, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
How the hell does Vire look like Charizard? They're both orange and they both have wings; that's it. Diachronos (talk) 02:20, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
I can sorta see where they're coming from...but I had to drink a pint of paint thinner beforehand. --AuronKaizer! 02:22, November 15, 2009 (UTC)

Week 71: Grim Creeper vs. Blue Stalfos

Grim Creeper
Blue Stalfos
Blue Stalfos.gif
Stalfos Reaper

LAAAAAAAAAADIES AND GENNNNNNNNTLEMENNNNNN!!! In the afterglow of Halloween, we present to you another mind-boggling battle of wits in the TEMPLE. OF. COOOOOOOOOOOURAGE! And make no mistake; this week, two-dimensional bones will shatter in this upcoming battle between two famous personifications of death in The Legend of Zelda mythos! Draw your eyes to the center ring, if you please!

In the red corner is a diminuitive yet menacing skeleton who guards the Organ of Evening Calm (not that kind of organ) in the Eagle's Tower. He commands a vast army of Keese, whom he considers his kin...make of that whatever you please. He's here, he's there, he's everywhere...THIS. IS. GRIIIIIIIIM CREEEEEEEEPERRRRRRR!!!!!

And in the opposite corner, cloaked in a shade of blue, we have a master of deception and time that will stop at nothing to, err, stop people from gathering the 8th and final Essence of Time. With his menacing scythe, few heroes dare stand up to this freakish spectre...THIS. IS. STAAAAAAAAAALFOOOOOOS REEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAPER!!!


Votes for Grim Creeper

  1. It was actually quite hard figuring out how to beat this guy. Also, he gets brownie points for being a persistent little bugger. Random skeletal enemies without backstories are cool! --AuronKaizer! 00:15, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
  2. Yeah this guys better and has more personality. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 00:19, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
  3. Same as me you are in his dream. How cool is that? —Preceding unsigned comment added by DarxStar128 (talkcontribs)
  4. i havent played the other game all the way through and I love Link's Awakening--Ironknuckle1 00:12, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
  5. Grim Creaper is classic and a much deeper character. He could be good or bad and we can never be sure. Also, Link's Awakening is a classic! Go Grim Creaper!!! User:HeroofAwesome
  6. This one actually has some relevance to the story. Portal-Kombat
  7. An odd character, for sure. This guy gets an eagle later on in one of the more annoying fights in the game. So...yeah. Dialask77 Ice Wizard Ice Sorceror.png 03:02, November 4, 2009 (UTC)
  8. I know absolutely nothing about either, so I'm choosing the one with a funnier name. Solar flute (talk)
  9. This guy ticked me off more. He was a trickier boss. --Nunovanhalen (talk) 16:37, November 7, 2009 (UTC)
  10. I don't know, this guy just seems more interesting to me. Jedimasterlink (talk) 23:25, November 7, 2009 (UTC)

  1. Don't fear the Creeper.
  2. Is that a dress that the reaper's wearing. Let's face it, if you had a guy in a dress pop out how scared would you be? Creeper wins.
  3. Link's Awakening was the first Zelda game I ever got, and this guy annoyed the -censored- out of me. I have to pick him.
  4. Creeper rocks.

Votes for Blue Stalfos

  1. I don't know...I just like it more or something. I guess. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 00:19, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
  2. =D Diachronos (talk) 01:35, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
  3. This one is tough. While the Grim Creeper had more of a personality it just seemed like an incredibly easy mini-boss that far into the game. On the other hand the Stalfos Reaper was just another hit back the magic routine. I'm going with the Stalfos Reaper though as he was more memorable for me and that the Grim Creeper was just too easy. --Birdman5589 (talk) 01:45, November 2, 2009 (UTC)
  4. He is pwnage--DarkTriforce (talk) 00:44, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
  5. This guy looks more like the Grim Reaper. I know, because me and the Grim Reaper have had business meetings. I'M THE HERO OF DEATH OKAY?!--RH 14:01, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
  6. Personal preference, and he looks more intimidating Oddball 464 19:43, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
  7. I'm mainly voting for this guy because Oracle of Ages, the first Zelda game I ever got, will always have a special place in my heart. Also, he's awesome, and the Creeper can't fight on his own. Note that in both fights you have with him, he relies on others to fight for him. Sir Real
  8. Voting for this guy because........He's cool --AF 23:21, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
  9. I was the Grim Reaper for Halloween in 1st grade. I just like him more I dunno. -- C2 / CC 23:34, November 3, 2009 (UTC)
  10. Hes pretty cool--SbH has the tetraforce on his hand! 01:23, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
  11. It took me a while to decide, but I think I'll go with the Stalfos Reaper. He looks awesome and has a scythe! The Midna (talk) Midna Laughing.png 01:36, November 9, 2009 (UTC)

  4. I'm just going for who ever is winning...
