Epic Battle of Epicness: Round 1: Bayside: Mickey Mouse v. Freddy Krueger




Name: Mickey Mouse
A.K.A.: -
Hometown: Disneyland
Known For: Making millions of people happy.
Strength: Being cute
Weakness: Not too smart
Wins: - 

VS

Name: Freddy Krueger
A.K.A.:  -
Hometown: Springwood
Known For: Killing teens in their sleep
Strength: Knows your every weakness
Weakness: Once you stop believing in him, he no longer has power.
Wins: - 

Mickey Mouse is a great character, he is happy-go-lucky and never wants to hurt anyone. He is the mascot of a multi-million dollar, international company, with the forces that come with it behind him. Freddy Krueger is the "son of a hundred maniacs" and is a child killer. His no-holds bar fighting technique guarantees that Freddy would take down the mouse in just a few seconds. But Mickey is the "final girl" and the only surviving character because of his innocence and his ability to turn dreams into wishes. 

Conclusion: Mickey Mouse v Freddy Krueger





Epic Battle of Epicness: Round 1: Bayside: Buffy Summers v. Sabrina Spellman



Name: Buffy Summers
A.K.A.: The Slayer; The Chosen One
Hometown: Sunnydale
Known For: Dyeing, twice
Strength: Super strong, super flexible, prophetic dreams
Weakness: Snogging with vampires and caring too much about her friends
Wins: - 

VS

Name: Sabrina Spellman
A.K.A.: -
Hometown: Westbridge
Known For: Using magic to solve problems
Strength: Great friend
Weakness: Always uses magic to solve problems
Wins: - 

Buffy Summers is the longest active slayer in history. Her friends are one of her greatest weapons, but she does have a soft spot for souled vampires and she never hurts humans (at least never chooses to). Sabrina is a walking mistake, she has great friends, but does rotten things to them, usually by mistake because she uses magic to solve her problems, then once doing things the mortal way, she can make them right. We've already seen Buffy v. a witch - twice. When it was her friend, she tried not to hurt her, but when it was a monster of the week, Buffy took her down. Buffy wins, unless Sabrina can charm her with her quirkiness to befriend her. Buffy wins.

Conclusion: Buffy Summers v Sabrina Spellman





Epic Battle of Epicness: Round 1: Magic Kingdom: Tommy Oliver v. Katniss Everdeen


Name: Tommy Oliver

A.K.A.: Green Ranger, White Ranger, Red Zeo Ranger, Red Turbo Ranger, Black Dino Thunder Ranger
Hometown: Angel Grove, California
Known For:  Being the epic 6th ranger
Strength: Leadership and martial arts
Weakness: Late, a bit headstrong
Wins: - 

VS



Name: Katniss Everdeen
A.K.A.: The Girl on Fire
Hometown: District 12
Known For: Causing a rebellion
Strength: Hunting
Weakness: Emotionless
Wins: - 

Tommy was the hero of our collective childhood, he was evil, had an awesome zord, was good, lost his powers, came back again and we loved him. But he could only just barely outsmart or outfight his main opponent. Katniss is great at archery and has no problem killing a person, but it does eventually drive her mad. In a fight to the death, Tommy, as a power ranger, has much more arsenal at his disposal and could take her down, but he wouldn't kill a human. Katniss, beaten to a bloody pulp, would muster the strength to take Tommy out.

Conclusion: Tommy v. Katniss
