Week 159: Eagus vs. Orca


12 < 19

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AAAAAAAAAAAAAND GENTLEMEN!!! We bring you here today to see the one hundred and fifty-ninth fight in the TEMPLE. OF. COOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!! As the combatants this week enjoy training for sword practice, we recommend you bring a sword.

In the tan corner, we have a new contestant to the arena, hailing all the way from the land of the sky, THIS. IS. EAAAAAAAAAAGUUUUUUUUUUUUS!!!

In the purple corner, we have a contestant who has been here a few times. With his large fan base, THIS. IS. ORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRCCCCCCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!


Votes for Eagus

  1. Eagus is a cool guy. Now granted, few contestants, be they living creatures or frozen cubes of ice, can stand against Orca, but, dude, c'mon. Err, actually, I have no really good reason to vote for Eagus over Orca, but his particular style of beard is completely righteous, and today being Beard Day (something I just invented) Eagus gets the edge over him. And he seems like a good guy, with a more admirable control over his temper than Orca with his impression of a dying meso-american tigerbear in heat. Eagus is more likely to be just a regular bro with which you can have some beer pumpkin soup at the local pub. --AuronKaizer! 15:57, March 3, 2012 (UTC)
  2. The O in Orca is for overrated. --Birdman5589 (talk) 00:01, March 4, 2012 (UTC)
  3. Eagus is from Skyward Sword Skyward Sword is awesome Eagus could possibly even be awesomer than the game that he's in. Mthompson (talk)
  4. Skyward Sword is the first chronological event in the timeline so if that is true who do you think taught the original hero of men EAGUS DID!!! Dinoman21
  5. Heyyyyyyy. Skyward Sword is my second favorite Zelda, and Wind Waker is third. Also, Eagus's beard is awesome. Paradox64
  6. Eagus annoyed me while helping me, but I still thought he was too awesome to be ignored. Also, he could hit Orca ONCE and he'd fall over gasping.Zeldas ganon (talk) 06:18, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
  7. Anybody but Orca. Also, SS is much better than WW. And to everyone "sick" of SS fights, do you not realize how many times Orca has appeared, or tried to appear, in ToC? Ike 20:42, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
  8. Who doesn't like piping hot Pumpkin Soup? —Ceiling Master 22:33, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

  1. Eagus for the win, gives you side quest, sword, AND teaches you how to use it. WIN.
  2. I didn't really like Wind Waker, plus Eagus just seems cooler. He gives you your first sword and teaches you how to use it + defense techniques once you got a shield, and his role doesn't stop here. He's also "useful" for a sidequest with an amazing reward: two Pieces of Heart and a gigantic wallet!
  3. I didnt Like Orca, I dont know why, Eagus is much cooler, he also seems more laid back, I dont like Old man Nipples, also Skyward Sword is Much Better than Wind Waker
  4. This guy is awesome. The other guy is scary is has a potbelly.
  5. he is cool and the other guy is creepy
  6. Eagus was cool and helped me out more than Orca. Plus I love Skyward Sword so Eagus gets my vote.
  7. I don't like Orca.
  8. Orca's just an onld freak.

Votes for Orca

  1. OOOOORRRRRCCCCCAAAAA —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jäzzi (talkcontribs)
  2. Wind Waker is tied for first on my list of Zelda games, and Skyward Sword is near the bottom. This is an easy vote. --?????? (talk) 00:09, March 4, 2012 (UTC)
  3. I strive to be like Orca in all that I say and do. That is all. --Abrahamlinkoln 09:54, March 4, 2012 (UTC)
  4. ummm not much to say about this fight accept that i like this charactor a little bit better i don't know why i guess its because he's from my fav game Wind waker and one more thing i wanted to say now what was it ummmmmmmm oh yeah i remember now CAN WE PLEASE STOP HAVING SKYWARD SWORD FIGHTS IT IS GETTING SOOOOO ANNOYING!!!! thank you +) LoZSuperFan1
  5. How could you vote for anyone but Orca? This isn't even a contest.--The One And Only Guitar Hero Talk to TOAOGH You can't believe everything online, that's what started WW1 23:17, March 4, 2012 (UTC)
  6. Orca gets my vote because of two reasons: One, he's sexier, and two, at least he DOES something when it comes to training Link, Eagus just sits there and talks, Orca will stab you in the face. Kapodaco! (talk) 22:18, March 5, 2012 (UTC)
  7. I think Orca is just a deeper character. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 14:01, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
  8. There's a reason Orca has such a decorative house Oni Dark Link 18:50, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
  9. Orca has more personality.--FierceDeku 22:19, March 8, 2012 (UTC)
  10. It would be unwise to stand against Hyrule's eventual conqueror and warlord. OOOORRRRRCCCAAAAAAAAA!!! Jedimasterlink (talk) 21:55, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
  11. Orca is way better at Swordplay and has more character, Eagus has about as much character as the Receptionist. User:Coolkat100 16:00, March 9, 2012 (UTC)
  12. The master of Outset Island... In a time where no one used swords anymore Orca still trained everyday.--Longhorn Velez (talk) 14:49, March 15, 2012 (UTC)
  13. Still waiting for someone to make Wind Waker, but where you play as Orca and his harpoon. --Hydropanda (talk) 21:50, March 23, 2012 (UTC)
  14. Orcas cooler Tj hoffman (talk) 22:14, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

  1. Loved to fight him, and he is so cool for an old man. NUOOOH!!
  2. You just can't beat that old man strength!
  3. Orca has far more experiance. Having practiced fighting since he was young, he has battled many beasts during his travels on the ocean. The greatest threat Eagus has faced in teaching new students at the knight academy.
  4. I don't know why — I'm just drawn to voting for him. Maybe it's because he's on the right? Anyway, my instinct is telling me to vote, so...
  5. Orca is so badass, if you get 1 thing wrong, he's like "YOU SUCK AT SWORDPLAY! GO DIE IN A HOLE"!!!! which is why he's awesome, coz he's scary!
  6. I dislike Skyward Sword.
  7. Have you seen the huge harpoon on his wall?
  8. Too many SS fights. Potbellied people FTW!
  9. Who the hell is the other guy, again?
  10. Orca is an awesome name. Plus, Orca allows you to fight him and you can get a piece of heart from him, plus it's fun trying to get hits on him. You can't do that with Eagus, and all he does is demand some pumpkin soup.

Anon 1 for Eagus, Orca does all those things too and Ike there has been way more Skyword Sword fights then Orca fights. User:Coolkat100 16:05, March 9, 2012(UTC)

"Way more"? Definitely not. This is the fourth Orca battle and the sixth Skyward Sword battle, and Orca has been suggested many, many times in the past. Jedimasterlink (talk) 19:04, March 10, 2012 (UTC)

What I mean't was there will be way more because out of 159 fights there has been four Orca fights and out of the past seven fights there has been six Skyword Sword fights. User:Coolkat100 18:40, March 10, 2012 (UTC)

Point taken. Just try to say what you mean more precisely. Jedimasterlink (talk) 03:11, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

You are right though on the fact that Orca has been in a lot of fights. I think Orca holds the record. User:Coolkat100 12:08, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

Nope. Zant has been in 5 times. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 19:22, March 11, 2012 (UTC)
I would have to say that Orca has been suggested MANY more times than anyone else. Since the game just came out, it makes sense to have alot of SS fights, whereas Orca was just an old guy who liked to stab little children with harpoons. Ike 15:41, March 24, 2012 (UTC)

I'm surprised that Eagus is doing so well. It's actually a pleasant surprise. I like close fights. -Anonymous (talk)

I believe there is one MAJOR difference in these Aragorn-Esque sword teachers: the fact that Eagus wields an actual Sword while Orca wields a Harpoon. And since i'm on the subject, Nintendo has no respect for weapons or items.Zeldas ganon (talk) 22:05, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

You continue to support my theory that you're a medieval squire aspiring to be a glorious knight, somehow stuck in the 21st century and horrified at the lack of chivalry. It's funny because at first it was just a joke I made to myself, but your continuous references to swords, respect, and dueling have made it uncannily plausible. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 22:13, March 11, 2012 (UTC)

Hahahahahahaha,Hm, Ha, Hey That was funny, lad. I like your style, but this has nothing to do with the ToC. Besides, I believe it was YOU who posted on your page that Nintendo has no respect for arthropods (which they don't). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Zeldas ganon (talkcontribs)

How very amusing. I cannot contain my laughter. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jäzzi (talkcontribs)
My statement implies an abnormal interest in arthropods, which I have. On the other hand most people have only an elementary knowledge of weapons which the Zelda series should satisfy. That you apparently know more about medieval weaponry is, well, unusual. Hence the support for my theory. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 00:19, March 12, 2012 (UTC)

Aye, lad. Good theory. But my interest in medieval weapons stretches to medieval culture as well. For instance, french bread was very widespread during it's heyday, especially in ENGLAND, NOT FRANCE! Yet France gets all of the credit. And the Morning Star is not a Mace. yet they say they're the same. Zeldas ganon (talk) 17:12, March 12, 2012 (UTC)

The fact that you keep calling me "lad" as though you're clearly the older and more mature person here only continues to support this theory, whatever you may say about it. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 19:20, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
I don't even care that this was supposed to be a joke. It's a really well-supported theory, at least more so than...certain others I've seen around here. Jedimasterlink (talk) 19:51, March 12, 2012 (UTC)
Support Support: -Minish Link 00:34, March 13, 2012 (UTC)

I like writing in Old English! So what, art thou suggesting that I write differently? 'Cause I can. I CHOOSE not to. And while from what i can gather you're older than me, I believe I'm just as mature. Anyways, I don't discriminate age. what's the difference in a 10 year old and a 30 year old? Nothing but likeness, think patterns, and style. Zeldas ganon (talk) 02:06, March 13, 2012 (UTC)

Uh, no offense, but you're not. And no, I am in no way saying you shouldn't write how you want to, nor was I saying there was anything wrong with an interest in medieval stuff anyways. I was merely expressing a humorous notion I had thought of. It wasn't a slight against you. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 02:09, March 13, 2012 (UTC)

Week 158: Bellumbeck vs. Nabooru


14.5 < 17.5

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AAAAAAAAAAAAAND GENTLEMEN!!! We bring you here today to see the one hundred and fifty-eighth fight in the TEMPLE. OF. COOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!! As the combatants this week enjoy treasures, we suggest you hide all valuables that you have with you, lest these treasure hunters try to take them.

In the armor gold corner, we have a treasure hunter who has been transformed by the dark powers of the World of the Ocean King. Trying to defeat the hero with all its might, THIS. IS. BELLUUUUUUUUUUUUUMBEEEEEEEEEEECCCCCCCCCCCCCK!!!

In the desert sand corner, we have a legendary Gerudo with a lust for treasure. Transformed into a monster by the surrogate mothers of the Demon Lord, THIS. IS. NABOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!


Votes for Bellumbeck

  1. I really have to vote for Bellumbeck here. I haven't fought Nabooru yet in OoT, and Bellum was an interesting villain. Plus Bellumbeck was fun to fight. --The One And Only Guitar Hero Talk to TOAOGH You can't believe everything online, that's what started WW1 18:30, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
  2. I liked Linebeck better, and it was a much bigger surprise when he turned into the final boss then her being a mini-boss. Also, he was just awesome actually trying to fight Bellum. Ike 19:27, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
  3. While the Iron Knuckle for Nabooru was cool and all, this boss was original and the only one of its kind, whereas there were multiple Iron Knuckles in OOT. Plus Linebeck was a much more developed character than Nabooru, which made this battle even more epic. -[1] 20:19, February 12, 2012
  4. You know, I was actually planning on voting for Nabooru when I came here, but I actually have to go for Bellumbeck here. While Iron Knuckles themselves are way better than Phantoms, I just found Linebeck's possession and battle more aesthetically pleasing somehow. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 01:20, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
  5. Somehow just cooler than Nabooru...I'm not really sure why I'm doing this. -Minish Link 19:59, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
  6. Definitly need to save Linebeck from the Bellum.-- King Marth 64 (talkother wikisblogs) Peace_Ness.png 22:51, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
  7. First of all, I looooove Linebeck, he's one of my favorite characters in the series. (Plus I love his theme) I like the fact that he abandoned his cowardice to stab Bellum in the tentacle! That said, it's not why I voted for Bellumbeck. I voted for Bellumbeck because it is a well-made boss, it forced a reaction out of me much more than fighting an underdeveloped gerudo character did, and it was just plain fun! I know some people complained that the time-stops were difficult to do at all, let alone with the right timing, and that was a bit of a problem for me as well, but it wasn't enough to turn me off the entire battle. Win for octopus+coward. Nilkadmin
  8. Nabooru is too easily beaten with a full magic bar. OM NOM NOM MAGIC BARS... --Hydropanda (talk) 21:59, February 14, 2012 (UTC)
  9. Bellumbeck is awesome because Linebeck and Bellum are awesome. Mthompson (talk)
  10. I thought this battle was a bit more fun, even though it's from the vastly inferior game. The battle was more difficult, at least, which is a bit out of character for Phantom Hourglass. Never understood why people make such a big deal out of Iron Knuckle battles, anyway. Jedimasterlink (talk) 05:43, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
  11. I haven't beaten Phantom Hourglass yet, and I love Ocarina of Time. I'll just keep the battle close since I can't judge a boss I've never battled. --?????? (talk) 06:33, February 20, 2012 (UTC)
  12. The only reason why I'm picking this is because this was a legit boss. Nabooru as an Iron Knuckle fought like every other Iron Knuckle. --Nevermind0309 (talk) 22:08, February 23, 2012 (UTC)

Anonymous votes

  1. It was a better fight than Nabooru, and the music was great!
  2. Bellumbeck is a freaking phantom knight. Nabooru's fight was too easy.
  3. Bellumbeck>Nabooru. I'm a math whiz- trust me. 3.14159265358917.
  4. Bellumbeck ftw!!! he was part of the FINAL boss battle!!!!!
  5. we love bellum, we love linebeck, bellumbeck is double the fun!

Votes for Nabooru

  1. 3 Heart Semi-Challenge. She actually gave me a challenge in that run. – zzi 16:46, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
  2. Can't help but throw my vote here. Iron knuckles have long been my favorite enemy in the series, Phantoms, not so much. That plus Nabooru herself was a half decent character and the aspect of fighting an ally came across more effectively by not leaving it as a final boss. She would also have been ally worthy of killing had the game a higher rating. Was also nice that you weren't meant to know it was her during the fight (though I knew something like that would happen since before I met her since I left the start screen on long enough way back when) Oni Dark Link 16:57, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
  3. I don't really care for either, but Ocarina of Time wins over Phantom Hourglass. Kapodaco! (talk) 18:43, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
  4. Wow, this was a hard choice. However, Nabooru was definitely more of a challenge than Bellumbeck. Even if Linebeck—as a character—was better than Nabooru, this is about the bosses, so she wins. —Ceiling Master 19:02, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
  5. A worthy fight between two indomitable warriors! I just find myself leaning slightly towards Nabooru here, I swear she attacks faster than ordinary Iron Knuckles, and that's a killer in OoT 3D Master Quest. That.... damnable spin attack! I just wonder how much trouble the Hylians would have had with these ladies in the field... --Naxios10 (talk) 02:14, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
  6. It's not really Linebeck. It's more of a symbol of everything wrong with Phantom Hourglass made flesh/steel hybrid. Seriously, could you possibly provide more of a desensitizing, annoyingly stupid endgame than that? In Zelda, I mean. FPS games don't count. That being said, I still can't really ever make up my mind whether Nabooruknuckle's slapstick "entrance" is jarringly out of place, or a welcome bit of comic relief after an hour or so of mind-warping freaky music.--AuronKaizer! 19:24, February 13, 2012 (UTC)
  7. This was one of the most interesting battles from the game if not the Zelda series as a whole. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 12:51, February 16, 2012 (UTC)
  8. I don't like Nabooru, so I don't care if I have to beat her up. With Bellumbeck, I get to beat up one of my favorite Zelda characters. Yayyy? ShyGuyFan
  9. Hmmmmm lets see, fav character, fav boss, fav Temple, second favorite game....I rest my case. LoZSuperFan1
  10. I loved Nabooru and her work... (even if brainwashed) KingGoku (talk) 00:11, February 18, 2012 (UTC)
  11. i think nab would win due to the fact that she gave me an extremly hard time and Bellumbeck was kind of a push over for me. User:Dinoman21
  12. Nabooru has an Iron Knuckle? i did not saw that coming... --Longhorn Velez (talk) 00:05, March 2, 2012 (UTC)

Anonymous votes

  1. First anon vote. My instinct was to vote on the right (as usual). I haven't exactly gotten to this point in the game, but anything over a fight that doesn't even stick out in my mind.
  2. Iron Knuckles for the win. Their armor is so shiney! And they have a huuuge axe. Bellumback is more annoying because you have to stop the time and all, but just because you cannot beat him any other way, doesn't make him better. And besides, which evil entity calls himself Bellum? That's not threatening at all!
  3. This fight angered me so much! Be it was a good challenge, and it made me feel very proud when I won. OoT FTW!
  4. i loved this fight but i hated the bellum one it was annoying a crud and was impossible to do
  5. Iron Knuckles are epic. Never played WW.
  6. The DS games wern't that good, and OOT was da bomb, sooo... yeah...
  7. OoT is probably more fun. I haven't even played any Zelda DS game. PS #5 the other thing is in PH not WW.
  9. Bellum/Bellumbeck is likely one of the least interesting villains in the entire series, and with Phantom Hourglass being infinitely the low point of a typically spectacular franchise, this one's a no-brainer. Sage of Spirit REPRESENT.
  10. At least, Nabooru did look evil when sealed in her knuckle armor, and she turned out to be very helpful in the game. Bellum was a real joke.
  11. Nabooru was a mini-boss that was hard. Bellum was just a fail.

Hopefully I did a better job with the colors, while the intro is a bit weak, I think I've improve a bit. – zzi 17:00, February 12, 2012 (UTC)

Colours do look nice though Bellumbeck's does look a bit similar to the sandship's from last week's match. Not sure if that would be classed as a problem though. I also find the line "transformed by the dark powers of the World of the Ocean King" a bit jarring. Not only does it have the words of the almost in succession but I'm not sure how accurate it is to refer Bellum that way. Even so it's still probably better than what I could do. Oni Dark Link 17:06, February 12, 2012 (UTC)
I agree about the colors. Also, changed the intro slightly so it would be about this week's fight. Anonymous (Talk)

To anonymous voter #2, Bellum is the latin word for war. Last time I checked, war is an intimidating name. --Hydropanda (talk) 23:32, February 12, 2012 (UTC)

Also, I don't think Bellum chose to call himself that. Last I checked people don't get to choose their names... Nilkadmin
So I choose to call Ganondorf Ganon? Oni Dark Link 20:54, February 14, 2012 (UTC)
You can call Ganondorf a purple mushroom sundae if you want to... --Hydropanda (talk) 21:58, February 14, 2012 (UTC)
It's mildly amusing that we're having this conversation about people not getting to choose their own names, while using names we all chose for ourselves. And I'm with IceFlame, I'l abstain from voting since I haven't played PH (though I guess that didn't stop me with the Sandship).--FierceDeku 22:46, February 14, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry typo on my part, meant to be So who choose to call Ganondorf Ganon, as in he was born under one name but after gaining a certain degree of power seemingly took another Oni Dark Link 22:48, February 14, 2012 (UTC)

I can't reasonably cast a vote here since I don't own a DS and thusly haven't played PH. These DS vs Console game wars are terribly one-sided since most Zelda fans are familiar with the consoles while relatively few have played the DS games. IceFlame 19:54, February 13, 2012 (UTC)

Hey, anon #3 for Bellumbeck? Pi is 3.14159265358979, not 3.14159265358917. —Ceiling Master 03:50, February 27, 2012 (UTC)

More to the point is the fact that knowing digits of pi (or not knowing digits of pi, as the case may have it) has little to nothing to do with actual aptitude at math. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 00:22, February 28, 2012 (UTC)

Week 157: Ghost Ship vs. Sandship

The Ghost Ship
The Sandship

7 < 21
The Sandship

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AAAAAAAAAAAAAND GENTLEMEN!!! We bring you here today to watch an unforgettable ship battle between the two scourges of the two far off and completely unrelated seas in the TEMPLE. OF. COOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!! We'd prefer if you ignore the giant eyes and large unprotected time stones as their damage may make the fight boring.

In the scenic foggy blue corner, we have the treasure hording, princess kidnapping ship that was destroyed, but has been rebuilt for this special occasion. Sporting rustic dungeons, fancy Reapling guards, and even a Dead Man's Volley Deck, THIS. IS. THE. GGGGHHOOOOOOOSSSSSSTTTTTT SHHHIIIIIPPPPPP!!!

In the sandy and ruined corner we have the former LD-301N Skipper's ship, rebuilt for this special battle. Contrary to its name it does not actually sail on sand. Sporting sand pits, bones, and puzzle rooms only passable by manipulating time, THIS. IS. THE. SSSSSSSSSAAAAAAAAANNNNNNDDDDDDDSSSSHHHIIIIIIIIPPPPPPP!!!


Votes for Ghost Ship

  1. The ghost ship's final boss didn't involve tentacles. Hundreds among hundreds of tentacles *shudder* --Hydropanda (talk) 23:17, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
  2. The Sandship has a good boss a good mini-boss and a cool item but I didn't really like it that much probably my least favorite temple in the game. Also the Ghost Ship quest in Wind Waker was kinda fun. User:Coolkat100 19:05, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
  3. I'm voting for the Ghost Ship, I'm almost done finishing up on the Phantom Hourglass. -- King Marth 64 (talkother wikisblogs) Peace_Ness.png 00:05, February 7, 2012 (UTC)
  4. I'm super ultra torn here cause i love this game and dungeon and i love skyward sword and everything i know about sandship implies that i would love it but i haven't gotten that far in ss so i'm voting for this one. and by the way this ship does move just not while it serves as a dungeon. Nilkadmin
  5. I have no idea what to vote for. I don't like the actual Dungeon for the Ghost Ship, but it appears in Wind Waker, so I have to vote for it. Plus, I haven't even gotten that far in Skyward Sword. --Hoshii no Kaabii (talk) 03:16, February 12, 2012 (UTC)

  1. Phantom hourglass was the first zelda game i ever played! which is why the ghost ship gets my vote! :) and I love the creepy fog that surrounds this place
  2. Never played either, but I hate Skyward Sword.
  3. I have played both games and the ghost ship was more fun and exitind espesaly the dead mans volly
  4. This is just unfair if the Sandship wins. Sure, Skyward Sword may be better than Phantom Hourglass, but this is the Ghost Ship we're talking about... a main part of the whole story of PH... Sandship was just one temple. Tetra was captured on this ship!! The game BEGAN and ENDED on this ship!!! Its more important to PH than the Sandship is to SS!!!

Votes for Sandship

  1. Apart from the boss I really really enjoyed the Sandship as a dungeon. It had a nice concept which molded well with the puzzles featured in it. A great mini boss with just some decent puzzles overall. Probably one of the most memorable dungeons in Skyward Sword for me anyway. Oni Dark Link 10:48, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
  2. Phantom Hourglass... wait, that existed? Oh right, wishful thinking. Besides that, the Sandship was an awesome dungeon. --AuronKaizer! 13:46, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
  3. Sandship was one of my favorite dungeons in the series. The Ghost Ship...not so much. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 16:07, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
  4. The Sandship was a very cool concept and dungeon overall and I don't even remember anything about the Ghost Ship. -Minish Link 17:17, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
  5. The Timeshift Stones were some of the coolest new features in the game, while the Ghost Ship had four evil girls—much too reminiscent of the Poe Sisters from OoT—that tried to kill you. —Ceiling Master 17:28, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
  6. The Sandship is the best dungeon in a game that has a lot of great dungeons. Among the best of the best, to put it another way. I don't even remember anything about the Ghost Ship except those four Blind wannabes. Jedimasterlink (talk) 19:08, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
  7. Less annoying than the Ghost Ship. More fun too. The Timeshift Stones were fun, and the Boss was incredibly weird, but in an almost good way. Ike 20:53, February 4, 2012 (UTC)
  8. Haven't gotten here yet, but it's in a much better game. – zzi 19:50, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
  9. While I hate to vote against something I've never experienced firsthand, the Sandship is pretty hard to beat. Story wise, gameplay wise, its captain/crew/enemies/item/timeshiftyness, it's just an all around awesome and unique dungeon.--FierceDeku 21:30, February 5, 2012 (UTC)
  10. ditto FD verbatim. IceFlame 01:22, February 7, 2012 (UTC)
  11. Everything from the music to the execution of this dungeon is amazing. It is one of the few dungeons in the Zelda series that don't feel like a dungeon. Instead, the Sand Ship feels like an actual ship.Wwtoonlinkfan (talk) 07:36, February 8, 2012 (UTC)
  12. As a dungeon, I really enjoyed the Sandship. It was very unique and unusual. The Ghost Ship on the otherhand was incredibly annoying for me, possibly because I wasn't a fan of the DS Zelda Games. Either way, I didn't enjoy the Ghost Ship, where as I really enjoyed the Sandship. --Nevermind0309 (talk) 18:05, February 8, 2012 (UTC)
  13. Best dungeon of the 2nd best Game. and as Anonymous 8 says, Phantom Hourglass sucks. ShyguyFan
  14. Phantom Hourglass was meh when compared to Skyward Sword. Besides the Sandship can go invisible and although the Ghost Ship can do the same thing, it's less easily capable and is less interesting as a dungeon overall. Corfid Bizna
  15. I like sand, and I like ships, but I hate tentacles, and I like ghosts, hmm... I love Skyward Sword. Sandship wins. Kapodaco! (talk) 20:27, February 11, 2012 (UTC)
  16. While still playing SS,I am REALLY,horribly stuck on Bellumbeck,and WHERE does the boss fight take place?Thought so.--Super Ike the Third (talk) 12:30, February 12, 2012 (UTC)User:Super Ike the Third

  1. the boss was cool(tentacles) and the ghost ship has scary reaplings and weird sisters
  2. I loved the Timeshift Stones! And the puzzles where as chalengling as spelling (for me, anyway). The music was cool, and you (finaly) get the bow in this dungeon! Plus, I've never felt so epic climbing a ladder. ... :)
  3. never played Phantom Hourglass
  4. Though the dungeon itself was tedious, doing the same run over and over again, I liked the idea of sailing in a desert. That pirate captain robot guy was pretty cool too, though not really that hard.
  5. Easily the best dungeon in the game for me (though I know many people would disagree). The item is awesome, and using it is even better. The music is ranked high in my favorites for the game. Also, I can't even really remember the Ghost Ship.
  6. The Sandship had the best mini boss in the game and was arguably the best dungeon in the game overall.
  7. The reaplings were annoying, and the Cubus sisters froze my game like 3 times :(
  8. Phantom Hourglass sucks. period.
  9. Well I am a fan of Lanayru, so I choose this.
  10. The only weak point in the Sandship is Tentalus's face. Besides that, almost everything was perfect. Plus, the idea of traveling in time for both past and present... It added some complexity. Which is nice.
  11. Sandship is easily the best dungeon in Skyward Sword. Ghost Ship was plain annoying...
  12. The Sandship was probably the best dungeon in skyward sword, and the ghost ship was the worst in Phantom Hourglass, and thats saying something...FOR BOTH OF THEM!!

My compliments to the chef. This was exceeeeeeeeeedingly passable. --AuronKaizer! 13:50, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

Thank you, but the main page and the suggesting votes still need to be done(I can't edit the main page and I don't know how to archive). This was my first big format-involving project. --Hydropanda (talk) 15:30, February 4, 2012 (UTC)

I love me some Timeshift stones, that dungeon was one of my favorites!!

Week 156: Dodoh vs. Falbi


12 > 6.5

LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AAAAAAAAAAAAAND GENTLEMEN!!! It is our pleasure to bring you the 156th bi-annual lunatic clown face off week in the TEMPLE. OF. COOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE!!! This week's duel is that between two of the most loved clown characters in the Zelda series. Let's meet them now.

In the lovely pink corner is a round, happy-go-lucky fellow residing on the colorful wonderland that is Fun Fun Island, where he hosts a very fun minigame. However, before our hero can play this, he must help this man recover his lost, beloved Party Wheel, which has fallen to the Surface. After he has done so, our hero can continue playing the game (for a small fee), and getting a perfect score will reward him with a Piece of Heart. Happy to see you, THIS. IS. DOOOOOOOOOOOOOODOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH!!!

In the hot pink corner we have a flamboyant man who operates a minigame in which our hero grabs helpless Cuccos and uses them to glide across Lake Hylia to attempt to land on a high platform; it is here that he can obtain numerous prizes, including 100 Rupees and a Piece of Heart. Taking your money, THIS. IS. FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALBIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!

Which one of these dreadful, happy minigame operators will win this duel to the death? Only you can decide. With that out of the way, LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLET'S GET RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREADY TO RRRRRRRRRRRRRUMMMMMMMMMBLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEE!!!

Votes for Dodoh

  1. Dodoh is probably my least favorite character in the series for a whole beautiful plethora of reasons, and that is a high honor, so...he gets my vote. Yay. -Minish Link 16:21, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
  2. Hmmmm... While they both remind me of Tingle, Dodoh's look of crestfallen depression is priceless, or maybe I'm just vindictive... Regardless, the whole Scrapper sidequest was cool so Dodoh, my vote is yours. --Abrahamlinkoln 19:06, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
  3. At least Dodoh has the decency to completely cover his body. Ew. —Ceiling Master (talk) 20:35, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
  4. Here's the difference between Dodoh and Falbi, Falbi is SCARY. One look at him and he makes my insides all creepy crawly and what not. Dodoh is just pitifully stupid, but he doesn't make me want to stop playing the game, points to him. Kapodaco! (talk) 04:40, January 14, 2012 (UTC)
  5. I thought I wouldn't like Dodoh when I first saw him but as I got to know him he didn't grate my nerves at all. Neither did Falbi for that matter but worse still I found Falbi thoroughly unnoteable. To an extent I liked Dodoh he had enough characterization to become sad while Falbi is noting more than the Cuccoo clown guy above Lake Hylia with no real noticable traits Oni Dark Link 00:39, January 15, 2012 (UTC)
  6. Falbi is the worst. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 21:12, January 16, 2012 (UTC)
  7. I think that Dodoh is hilarious, but somewhat psychotic. I mean the game involves you falling to your death in a fashion. But I absolutely hate Falbi and Dodoh could be memorable. --THERE IS NO HAPPY PLACE! (talk) 13:21, January 29, 2012

  1. Anyone who votes for this guy gets paid imaginary money. What? The one time I tried playing his minigame, that's what I got. And as for the other guy... ugh.
  2. He's weird. I like that.
  3. Because one day, he might just fall off his island. The other guy has his damn birds.
  4. They're Both, Terrible, really, just awful tingle ripoffs but this guy has a sidequest which is, kinda worth it, and yeah. Whoever made this the Temple pf courage battle should see a therapist
  5. I kinda dislike voting for either character, but Dodoh get's my vote, since he looks so sad in his entrance-pic. And he is not as scary as the other clown.. Who's next? That guy with the bullet bill on his shirt?
  6. When this guy lost his Party Wheel, I'll admit, I actualy felt a twinge of pity for Dodoh.
  7. Although Falbi may be more...memorable, im gonna have to vote for Dodoh, probably cause he scared the crap out of me when he turned around.
  8. This guy genuinely robs you if you fail his game. -- 22:11, January 26, 2012 (UTC)
  9. Dodoh Balls. Need I say more?
  10. Falbi makes me want to cry.
  11. I would vote for Falbi, but at least Dodoh...covers himself up.

Votes for Falbi

  1. Let me put it this way: Dodoh is the only character in the series that has prompted me to shut off the volume on my television. Even Falbi (and Tingle, for that matter) are only capable of eliciting minor shudders. Dodoh's half luck-based minigame was also quite scarring. Jedimasterlink (talk) 20:24, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
  2. Falbi is just plain weird and ugly, but that is what makes the Zelda series what it is. My vote goes to the weirdest Zelda character, Falbi. (I don't think Tingle is that weird.) --Hoshii no Kaabii (talk) 05:27, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
  3. Who suggested this fight because i would like to send them a virtual punch in the face? I mean really, suggesting a fight between the two worst minigame operators in the series, and two of the worst characters. I choose Falbi because I wouldn't be where I am today if I weren't so warped and he helped warp me, so I owe him a slight debt. HEAR THAT FALBI?! MY DEBT IS PAID!! STOP SENDING ME DEAD CUCCOS!! Nilkad
  4. I was going to vote for Dodoh since he essentially gives me Rupees with how easy his game is. However, then I realized that I should vote for Falbi since he at least lets me abuse cuccos. That's what they get for constantly attacking people in swarms. --Birdman5589 (talk) 22:12, January 19, 2012 (UTC)
  5. Nothing quite like throwing all of Falbi's cucoos out and ruining his business. --Hydropanda (talk) 23:58, January 27, 2012 (UTC)

  1. Never played SS aaannnddd CUCOS RULE WEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2. Ummmmmmmm........

Peanut Gallery

I really don't want either of these to win, preferably they would both fall to their dooms from their respective minigames, not being saved by their pet birds. Not gonna vote, unless to make it a tie. Ike 17:25, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

I just realised that Falbi's face looks remarkably like a trollface! --Abrahamlinkoln 19:37, January 14, 2012 (UTC)

Dodoh has a very strange but very similar look to mario....--Amped0808 (talk) 07:40, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Bah. Even Purlo had a more developed personality, even though he was a douche. I can appreciate properly developed characters. Anyway, when it comes to minigame operators, Salvatore is BY FAR the best! --Naxios10 (talk) 13:31, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

Agreed. That is all. Nilkad

Naxy, while we're all supposed to be older than 13 here, we need to keep this family friendly. And that is not the most family friendly words. Also, Nilkad, virtual violence is a bit frowned upon in most places. – zzi 18:32, January 17, 2012 (UTC)

I refuse to vote out of disgust. --AuronKaizer! 23:04, January 19, 2012 (UTC)

Week 155: Barinade vs. Bilocyte


14 > 13.5
LLLLLLLLLLLLLLADIES AAAAAAAAAAAAND GEEEEEEEEEENTLEMEEEEEEEEEENNNN!!! We bring you now the one-hundred and fifty-fifth duel to the death in the TEMPLE. OF. COOUUUUUUUUUUUURAAAAAAAAAAGE!!! This week's fight is between two deadly, parasitic and ridiculously controlling fiends found within the stomachs of sea creatures. Brace yourself and let's meet them now.

In the purple corner we have an enormous anemone found deep within the insides of the legendary deity Lord Jabu-Jabu. On the hero's quest to obtain the Zora's Sapphire, he plunges within the creature's stomach to find the missing Princess Ruto; however, she has lost the Sapphire, and requests our hero find it. On his path to do so, he finds this bio-electric creature and battles it, finally defeating it and returning Lord Jabu-Jabu to normal. Bio-electrifyingly exciting, THIS. IS. BAAAAAAAAAAAARIIIIIINAAAAAAAAAAAAADE!!!

In the light red corner is an ocular-oriented organism that has found its way into the sky spirit Levias. On our hero's journey to uncover the missing parts of the "Song of the Hero", he visits Levias, bringing an offering of Pumpkin Soup; however, the delicious treat has no effect, as Levias is possessed by this creature. After our hero defeats it, Levias is returned to his calm state. From the inside of a sky whale, THIS. IS. BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILOCYYYYYYYYYTE!!!

Which one of these controlling creatures will succeed in their plight? Will one possess the other? Will they possess you, dear reader? And will we find out why it is they so much like whales? This is all up to you. Keep your mouths closed and LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLET'S GET RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRREADY TO RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMBLE!!!

Votes for Barinade

  1. I... er... still haven't started Skyward Sword But I've spent many times in Jabu Jabu's Belly and many times preventing going in there I WAS YOUNG!zzi 16:29, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
  2. It just seemed like a more interesting boss to me. --Nevermind0309 (talk) 23:13, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
  3. I've just always enjoyed Barinade as a boss. More so then Bilocyte. Not that there was anything particularly wrong with Bilocyte I just like Barinade better. Oni Dark Link 01:37, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Why do I like him better? I don't know, but it's always nice to stick with the classics. Kapodaco! (talk) 06:18, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
  5. Again, I'm supporting Ocarina, as it's been a while since I've seen an Ocarina character win. That and I can't get enough of Barinade's death animation. So... Peculiar... --Abrahamlinkoln (talk) 13:59, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Barinade is more memorable to me, even if it's damn near impossible to lose the fight unlike Bilocyte. I always imagined I killed a corrupted vital organ of Jabu-Jabu's, thus causing his death in the future. And casually sidestepping bio-electricity, like some BAMF straight from The Matrix, is awesome. Death sequence, also legendary in its grossness. The Bilocyte fight was too gimmicky, and perhaps the least memorable fight from its game (though this may owe to its non-appearance in the Lightning Round). --AuronKaizer! 01:15, December 30, 2011 (UTC)
  7. If Barinade did more damage, I'd genuinely have had trouble from it, whereas Bilocyte's battle was just... too simple, too small scale once I figured out what to do. More like a miniboss, but actually less deadly. Also Barinade (sounds like a sports drink, hah) had a pretty awesome look and the best ever death sequence to squick people out! WOT FUN, EH? --Naxios10 (talk) 12:00, January 1, 2012 (UTC)
  8. OOT that's why--Oathkeeper250 (talk) 14:36, January 5, 2012 (UTC)
  9. Bilocyte just didn't seem like a very interesting fight to me. Barinade, on the other hand, made me think, "oh my god, he's actually shooting electro-beams at me! And wtf, he's using those baris as a shield and weapon at the same time! and ewwww, he swelled up and exploded in a shower of green goo!" and is one of my personal favorite bosses. yay for parasite gore! Nilkadmin

  1. I actually had trouble fighting him. As for the other guy, the battle may have been the easiest in the game; it was even easier than some enemies (and it was a late game battle, too!). That's including the rematches.
  2. ARGH!! Barinade!! He almost made me throw the controller to the tv in anger!! I beat him in the end with only a 1/4 of a heart left.. That eye thingy was not hard, as soon as I figured out how to land on the wind fish' head.. Barinade for the win!! I vote for Barinade because he is the only boss that really made me mad. and because i have no idea who the other is.
  3. No clue who the other guy is. Barinade was really easy but still fun.
  4. Never played SS sooooo as much as this guy pissed me off when i fought him BARINADE BARINADE BARINADE (ahhhhhhhh) *Domin8or*
  5. Barinade is my favorite boss from OoT actually, and I have never heard of the other guy. Oh and message to whoever keeps track of this Temple of Courage, UPDATE THE FIGHTS EVERY WEEK, not every month! the Beatrux and Fabulously rich family were fighting for like more than a month.
  6. Barinade all the way. OoT is my fave, and I'm only part way through SS. Practically didn't sleep last night because I didn't realize how late it was while I was playing. But still Barinade. Jabu-Jabu was one of my fave dungeons. Plus Ruto's a babe.
  7. I don't know the other guy but Barinade was one of my favorite boss battles in OoT. Someone who I don't know or someone I love? Yeah, my choice is pretty clear here.
  8. YES, I actually know who Bilocyte is. But he was kinda too easy for a boss fight as you've traveled this far. I mean, The Imprisoned's second battle was way harder than this! Plus, Barinade knew to protect herself with a rotating jellyfish barrier and it was a great question of timing. For Bilocyte, you only had to swing in the right direction, and SOMETIMES (still very rarely), he was trying to trick you. BARINADE ALL THE WAY!!!
  9. NOTE: I'm really sorry if I already voted, I have a really bad memory, but BARINADE FTW! I have no idea who the hell the other guy is.
  10. Barinade was definitely the best boss of the first three, to beat him you have to constantly move, and focus. It kept me on the edge everytime and was definitely better than Bioctyle

Votes for Bilocyte

  1. I have Skyward Sword, but I haven't gotten to this point in the game yet. I think Jabu Jabu's Belly is the easiest dungeon in Ocarina of Time, including the boss, Barinade. But I think Barinade just isn't a cool boss. --Hoshii no Kaabii (talk) 00:59, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
  2. Bilocyte actually has an eye. How can Barinade see Link? --Ceiling Master (talk) 17:47, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
  3. Bilocyte was actually fun and Barinade was really boring, plus I hated Inside Jabu-Jabu's belly. -Minish Link 19:37, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
  4. Bilocyte was easy but genuinely entertaining. Barinade, despite looking awesome, was a relatively boring boss fight. Also, the effects of Bilocyte were at least obvious, as opposed the mind control of a personality-less fish that loiters around a pond all day. Xykeb Yvolix Zraliv 05:48, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
  5. Barinade is one of my least favorite bosses in the series. --EveryDayJoe45 (talk) 16:29, December 30, 2011 (UTC)
  6. Inside Jabu-Jabu's belly is my least favorite OoT dungeon, and Barinade is part of the reason I never cared for it. Jedimasterlink (talk) 08:21, January 1, 2012 (UTC)
  7. They were both easy, but Bilocyte was at least fun to battle. Lord Fabulous (talk) 22:00, January 1, 2012 (UTC)
  8. I thought that Barinade was a lot harder, but I really hated how Jabu-Jabu just sat there after you fought to free him. He was less of a diety and more of an overgrown whale stuck in a pond that the local populace decided to worship. Levias on the other hand, is actually pretty awesome, and you didn't have to go in him to save him. Ike 02:19, January 5, 2012 (UTC)
  9. I hated soooo much Barinade. It was a pain, but at least Bilocyte is not annoying. User:Pucho00
  10. Bilocyte has had a great come from behind. User:Coolkat100, 10:58, January 7, 2012 (UTC)
  11. It is better to fight something on a flying whale than inside an obese fish. --Birdman5589 (talk) 15:25, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

  1. Well, I have to say, Barinade gave me more of a challange, because of cruddy aiming with the Boomerang and that the game makes you have almost the same amount of heart containers as you start off in Skyward Sword, BUT! Bilocyte makes you think before you swing, then learns to soon hide parts of himself from attack, when Barinade is just the classic "cut the ropes with the bommerang then hack away" system that reappers later in the Wind Waker when you battle Kalle Demos and Puppet Ganon. Bilocyte has my vote.
  2. Bilocyte pissed me off a hell of a lot more than Barinade.
  3. This boss is from Skyward Sword! That's an automatic WIN in my book. Also, you have to think about the angle of your sword before yo strike. Also, Jabuu-Jabuu just grossed my out! Lets see... inside a wierd whale-like thing that doesn't help you at ALL, or a cool battle in the sky, followed by a fun, quick fight to help a spirit who, in turn, will help you? Hmmm, I wonder?
  4. I love the location. Fighting in the sky and on a whale? Awesome. Only thing I don't like is that you have to use Scrapper to activate the boss fight.
  5. I would have to go with Bilocyte because I'm currently in love with Skyward Sword. Also because the thought of fighting a giant parasite inside of and even bigger fish deity's stomach didn't appeal to me. Whale deities are much better:-).

While the colors probably need to be fixed, and the intro probably (really) needs tweaking, like normal. And it's Wednesday not Sunday, but at least it's changed. – zzi 16:30, December 28, 2011 (UTC)

At least. I did like the intro, though. Also, I thought it wasn't getting changed because everyone was really busy with holiday stuff and whatnot. -(Anonymous) 19:40, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
That might be part of it. AuronKaizer, who usually manages the ToC stuff, hasn't been around for a few days, and since it's the holiday season and all, it's not really out of the ordinary. Jedimasterlink (talk) 20:24, December 28, 2011 (UTC)
The past few weeks I've been doing it to make sure it actually gets through and is done regularly. But I was preoccupied with my bass and the holiday. – zzi 21:52, December 28, 2011 (UTC)

Anon 5 for Barinade, you have to realize that people have lives. I've been trying to get it so that it updates every week. If you're going to complain about it not being updated, perhaps make an account and get in a good stance to be able to change the fights. – zzi 13:02, December 29, 2011 (UTC)

Apparently he/she wasn't around for Week 149. -(Anonymous) 19:40, December 29, 2011 (UTC)
Apparently. Besides, 17 days < a month. That's still more time between fights than we like, but we've been making progress. Jedimasterlink (talk) 08:20, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

Temple of Courage was changed a week ago today. I figured I'd change it out on the weekend to make it run smoother and more consistent a time change. – zzi 18:32, January 4, 2012 (UTC)
