The death match is here: Fantasy Fighter Death Match - CHALLONGE!
Voting should allow for ties. Each participant gets a point for a win and half a point for a tie. Zero for a loss. I'm not entirely sure how the subsequent rounds are determined, but lets go with it
Here are some of the 39 participants:
Link (Legend of Zelda) Link is a young Hylian swordsman -the species is a little similar to elves- with the mission to, guess what: vanquish Ganondorf and rescue Hyrule from darkness and despair!! He usually wears green clothing, but he has red too which can protect him from high temperatures and blue clothing that allows him to breathe underwater =) The weapons that Link counts on include the legendary Master Sword, his bow and arrows, Hylian metal shield, special Mirror Shield that works against magical attacks, bombs that he can throw, special wall-climbing bombs, a chained hook that he can shoot to get to higher locations, the powerful Megaton Hammer to smash stuff and also the Biggoron Longsword. Link is very courageous and intelligent, but he is vulnerable to all sorts of damage and he is not invincible... Magic is part of Link's arsenal, including: He can conjure a shockwave of fire that spreads in all directions, a protective magical shield all around him that lasts for a limited time and he can also use teleportation to previously fixed return-spots. Link also has special gauntlets in his arms that give him supernatural strength to move huge boulders, iron boots to walk under water and magical boots to walk on air for a limited time
Waylander: World's most notorious assassin, deadly up to twenty feet with his two-bolt crossbow. Also dangerous with his six throwing knives and sword.
Drizz't: Well-known drow warrior; nine time champion of the drow fighting school Grand Melee. Fights with two magical scimitars, icingdeath and twinkle. Twinkle glows blue when he is in danger and icingdeath absorbs fire, protecting the wielder. Drizz't also wears magical bracers which enhance his already inhuman speed.
Druss: Druss the Legend. Deathwalker and Captain of the Axe. A mountain of a man with an axe to match. Snaga the Sender is his weapon, a massive double bladed axe possessed by a demon. His strength is legend and his will is greater yet. Champion of two armies at different times, he has won many duels. Renowned fist fighter, he has won tournaments. All that is left to win is this death match...
Skilganon: Skilganon the damned, wielding the Swords of Night and Day. A famous strategist and the greatest swordsman of his time. He has killed men and monsters, and will not hesitate to kill either. His talents include extreme quickness, good strength, and a great mind for a fight.
Gilgamesh was king of Uruk, two third god one third human. Mythology allows that. Being king he could do whatever he wanted and he wanted to do the women of Uruk. All of them. So the population grew unhappy and called to the gods to help them. The gods created a man so wild fierce and strong no one had seen before: Enkidu.
The wild Enkidu was tamed by a temple prostitute and brought to Uruk where he and Gilgamesh met and after a long brawl became friends. Together they did some heroic deeds like defeating the guardian of the forest just for fun, nearly avoiding a zombie apocalypse (taunting a godess is not recommendable even for a king) and defeating the bull of the gods. After Enkidus death Gilgamesh went on the quest for eternal live and did some further superhuman deeds.
Orlando was the first of the paladins of Charlemagne and as such the mightiest fighter in Europe. Orlando is insane with love for the most part of the epos (thus the name "Orlando Furioso"). He is unstoppable in his rampage until his sanity is brought back from the moon. After the cure he delivers the deciding strike in the battle between the Franks and the Saracen.
Amadis de Gaula - Illegitimate child between King Perión of Gaul and Elisena of England he grew up to be the most pure and chaste knight the medieval ages ever had. With the help of a wizard and a priestess (despite being deeply Christian) he had lots of arthurian style adventures. Amadis was the man the later more famous Don Quixote wanted to be. In contrast to most contemporal heroes he showed lots of emotions.
Kull (Robert E Howard)-born in Atlantis, was a slave, pirate, gladiator, and outlaw, eventually rose to be King of Valusia, more thoughtful than Conan, but just as fierce in battle (Wikipedia)
Bremer dan Gorst (Joe Abercrombie)-Personal bodyguard to the King of the Union. Runner-up in the royal competition (from the First Law Wiki), known to be pretty skilled in combat, but also known for his shrill voice, which may belie his prowess in battle
The Feared (Joe Abercrombie)-an almost unstoppable giant with magical glyphs on half of his body and almost impenetrable armor on the other half, a man who strikes fear into the hearts of all he faces, can kill dozens of normal men by himself
Icarium (Steven Erikson)-Icarium was known across the Malaz world as The Slayer, a dangerous being whose rage signified unconstrainable destruction. He used a single-edged longsword and a bow with warren-etched arrows, capable of killing even a dragon. When enraged, Icarium was able to draw on his rage as a form of power, making him lightning fast, tireless, able to withstand extremely powerful magic attacks, and forcing him to kill relentlessly until all around him was lifeless. (from Malazan Wiki)
Beastmaster (movie)-a warrior who has beasts by his side (yeah, I know, can't think of much else for him)
Death Dealer (Frank Frazetta)-Death Dealer is an iconic 1973 fantasy painting by Frank Frazetta. It depicts a menacing armor-clad warrior with a horned helmet, whose facial features are obscured by shadow, atop a horse, holding a bloody axe and shield. The image eventually led to spin-offs of varying merchandise, including subsequent paintings of the warrior, novels, statues, and most recently, a comic book, published by Image Comics, and related D&D adventures, published by Goodman Games. (from Wikipedia), he looks awesome and has a badass helmet that gives him powers, enough said!
Kitiara uth Matar (Dragonlance)-Dragon Highlord of the Blue Army, has fought just about anyone worth fighting, a woman of remarkable skill with a sword
Cloud (Final Fantasy)-big sword and angst. winning combination, ex-SOLDIER and is bred for combat
