Match 1: Kamina (Has the attitude and recklessness to be a top-class badass, even if he is quite an archetype.)

Match 2: Hei (Hearing of him has me tempted to see Darker Than Black at some point.)

Match One: Canaan. Kamina's manliness is pretty awesome, but Canaan has this sort of quiet ruthlessness to her character as well as kick ass combat abilities. Then again, I'm probably biased because I like Canaan so much.

Match Two: Hei.

Thought I'd throw in an extra pic of Canaan as well. This is her carving her way through an elite special forces unit with the help of her synthesia abilities and a high pressure steam pipe that was hit by a stray bullet. (Edit: Turns out she didn't rupture the pipe, a stray bullet from one of the guys she knifed did. Though I still think she's fairly resourceful.)

Let's see, I've haven't seen the shows for match one and the ones for match two are both my nominations. Blast. Oh well, I think I'll go against the flow here:

Match One: Kamina from Gurren Lagann.
Match Two: Dhomo from BLAME!.

Canaan and Kamina tie 5-5, settled in favour of Kamina using my random dice roller program, while Hei wins his match 8-2.

Match One:

A high school aged HiME who is intent on avenging her mother’s death, which she blames on a shadowy MIB type agency known as First District. While arguably one of the weaker HiME, she makes up for it through excellent teamwork with her CHiLD, an artillery equipped mechanical wolf named Duran. Her Element is a pair of small pistols with which she has sometimes displayed impressive accuracy (though this is highlyscene dependent). In addition to this, she knows how to handle herself physically and would appear to have some agility and hand to hand combat training. She owns a motorcycle and is frequently seen in riding gear. The main criticism that can be levelled against her badassness is that she has serious difficulty trusting others and therefore seems to feel a need to act tough and aloof despite already being tough. Her difficulty loosening up makes her the butt of much of the humour in the series she’s part of. Here’s Mai-HiME’s Natsuki Kuga.



Alternate pic.
Natsuki demonstrates her excellent negotiation skills during a potentially volatile situation. Laughing And yes, she manages to be badass despite how dorky those summon weapons look (it's odd that they have cartridges, since unlike Duran's shoulder mounted artillery they don't actually seem to use cartridges).

With his devil-may-care attitude, he hunts demons with a confident swagger and lethal wit. Sporting a red trench coat and wielding dual over-sized .45s and a large sword, this man is not afraid to stand out on the battlefield. He has a habit of taunting or belittling his opponents before fighting them. This is Devil May Cry's Dante.



DMC ep1 openning.

Match Two:

This new teacher at Holy Forest Academy doesn't necessarily fit the standard mold of what you would expect of a teacher. He was a former biker gang member and barely passed exams at a low-ranking university. Plus he's a skilled martial artist and lech. But this teacher's methods
of dealing with the troublesome students of Class 3-4 are seen as necessary by the school's headmaster. Genuinely caring for the well-being of his students unlike many of Holy Forest's ignorant staff, this guy puts his life and career at risk enough times throughout the series to either help those facing troubles from bullying students, dealing with corrupt school officials or humiliating any of the bullying students conspiring with Miyabi. A couple examples of what he's gone through: attending a teacher's national exam with multiple gunshot wounds from rescuing a school official's daughter from gangsters and using his body as a cushion to absorb the impact of falling into a car when rescuing a suicidal student jumping off the school's rooftop. Here's the titular main character of Great Teacher Onizuka, Eikichi Onizuka.



Cold, calculating, and a little crazy, he is the man who caused the Croce indecent. He reads reads his enemies like he reads a book and uses precise planning to execute crimes. Being an MB he pulls off a Xanatos Gambit on the SWA in Venice with ease. With cool calculation and a grin on his face, he fires an NTW and hits his target from over a kilometer away and acts like it's no big deal. He thinks nothing of sacrificing his minions simply to see what it takes to kill a cyborg. This is Gunslinger Girl's Giacomo Dante.



Dante with his NTW.

Voting for this round will end at 9:00pm Pacific Standard Time on Monday, March 15.

Match One: Dante. The likelihood of a match like this was the reason why I actually withdrew Natsuki's nomination for a while. The girl is definitely badass, but she's just not on the same level as a lot of the other competitors in this tournament. Plus, I think deep down inside she's still the little girl who lost her ability to trust people after her mother died under suspicious circumstances. In many ways she's a genuine badass, but in others ways I think she's basically a hurt child who's trying to act tough.

Match Two: Onizuka. If he and Giacomo Dante ever confronted each other, the result would be Giacomo pumping lead into Onizuka and dismissing him as dead only to have Onizuka pick himself up, shrug off the gunshot wounds in his gut, and proceed to beat the shit out of Giacomo as he cowered in terror. Smile

Match one- I have to vote for Dante with his some what over the top antics at times, and yet he has the skills to back it up.

Match Two- Being a middle school teacher myself I have to vote for Onizuka

Okay, after talking to Five_X, who recently finished Mai-HiME, I am reconsidering my vote in Match One since he reminded me of some things with Natsuki. She had a pretty damn awesome "taking you with me" moment late in the series. That girl has some serious guts and a real willingness to put herself on the line.

Anyhow, not sure whether I'll change my vote or not, but after being remind of them I figured I ought to mention some of her claims to badassitude.

Match #1: Dante (Natsuki ain't got nothing on this demon-slaying mercenary.)

Match #2: Onizuka (Taking enough abuse and inflicting enough punishment all in the name of education. Laughing )

I think in the end I'm probably sticking with Dante as well. I love Natsuki as a character, but even after being reminded of the awesomeness of some of the stuff she did late in Mai-HiME, I don't think I can vote for her here and feel that I've voted honestly. Sorry, Five_X.

Dante wins his match 7-3, while Onizuka wins his match 6-3. So I guess it won't be Dante vs. Dante next round. Razz

Match One:

A clone that was created as part of her “mother's” attempts to create an exact duplicate of her deceased daughter. Her “mother” considered her a failure, but let her believe that she was her real daughter and exploited her loyalty in her attempts to seize control of a set of powerful Lost Logia. Despite her ruthlessness and determination, she failed to overcome the opposition of Nanoha Takamachi (the girl who fans eventually nicknamed "The White Devil"), which prompted her “mother” to inform her of what she really was and how much she hated her. Following this she was adopted by Admiral Lindy Harlaown of the Time Space Administration Bureau and eventually became one of the Bureau`s Investigators, as well as a temporary squad leader for the elite unit known as Mobile Section Six. The older version of her character does have quite a soft side though, as evidenced by her attitude towards two children she encountered during her work for the TSAB. Here`s Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha`s Fate Testarossa (later known as Fate T. Harlaown).



The older version of Fate, sometimes referred to as "MILFate."
Fan art of the older version of Fate looking really badass.
Youtube Clip: Fate versus Signum (who could probably have qualified for this herself).

A pink-haired, horned mutant that slaughters people nonchalantly with pseudo-telekintic powers. You will sympathize. She starts off her series by mercilessly killing numerous armed guards as she escapes from a high security facility focused on keeping her species from getting out. In addition to her aforementioned telekinetic arms, called "vectors", she also is incredibly intelligent and highly capable at understanding battle situations, such as her fight against Bando, a character nominated earlier. In that fight, she does what he would least expect: she shoots him. She is completely ruthless to (almost) anyone who stands in her way, and often prefers to torture people instead of immediately killing them if she has the time to do so. Despite all of this, she's an immensely sympathetic character, and you will definitely be emotionally moved by the injustices committed against her. Here's Lucy, from Elfen Lied.



Lucy, about to shoot Bando.

Match Two:

A maid who worked for four years at the Lovelace household in Venezuela. Although her domestic skills such as cleaning and cooking were poor, she developed a close friendship with the young son of the Lovelace family, Garcia. She was once known as Rosarita Cisneros, a former FARC guerrilla trained as an assassin in Cuba and an internationally wanted criminal. Balalaika refers her as a "hardcore terrorist" to the point that Hotel Moscow had to deploy all their commandos as well as Balalaika getting involved in the situation personally should things get out of hand. Revy refers her to "That Fucking Glasses Bitch". She earned the moniker "Bloodhound of Florencia" for her relentless drive to achieve her objectives. Her tormented past and the smell of blood, gunpowder and muck like that of a sewer rat emanating from her was something Revy understood full well.
In combat, She is a truly fearsome opponent, having trained in a wide variety of martial, stealth, and weapon skills. Among the weapons she has used were a sniper rifle, combat knife, a SPAS-12 shotgun disguised as an umbrella, machine gun, grenade launcher hidden in a suitcase, spiked brass knuckles, trench spike, and twin M1911 pistols. Her strength, speed, endurance, and instincts were honed to almost supernatural levels, so much so that Rock at one point refers to her sardonically as "a killer robot from the future" (a reference to James Cameron's Terminator
movies). Presenting someone that can only be described as so deadly.....but so moé: Roberta from Black Lagoon...



Remember kids, get Terminator maid insurance before it's too late
Roberta firing her machine gun suitcase and SPAS-12 umbrella

He is an Expelian warrior whom Claude's party meets while attempting to defeat a marauding two-headed dragon. Much to his consternation, they become fused to his body thanks to Claude and co. distracting him; though he constantly bemoans their presence, he refuses to separate
them from himself when given the option. He is very loyal to his friends, but occasionally mopey, and has the lowest Luck stat in the game. He dual wields rather ridiculous looking shortswords, and in the anime is mostly comic relief aside from the times where he is possessed by the dragons, (who Rena names "Creepy" and "Weepy") during which he proceeds to kick massive amount of ass. Note that in the game this doesn't happen, and he is constantly badass. In both, he has an odd attraction towards barrels. Here's the guy with dragons on his back, Star Ocean: The Second Story's Ashton Anchors.



A short clip showing Ashton's barrel obsession.
Ashton being badass.

Voting for these matchs will end at 9:00pm Pacific Standard Time on Thursday, March 18, 2010.

Match 1: Lucy. We have to remember to measure badassery based on the environment characters are restricted to. Have you SEEN episode one of Elfin Lied? If there was any part of me that wasn't desensitized it was disemboweled like everyone else she encountered.

Match 2: Abstain.

I've been debating with myself whether I should actually post this particular video, and I finally decided that I should. It's a clip of Fate and Nanoha's final confrontation. Despite the fact that Fate gets pwned at the end of this video, there are certain things it demonstrates better than the duel with Signum did. Both Fate and Nanoha are combat pragmatists and they're both determined to emerge victorious. There's a constant back and forth shift in the tide of battle as they seek to exploit every possible advantage over their opponent.

Yeah, it's basically the most awesome battle between nine year old girls in ridiculous outfits ever. Razz

Lucy wins her match 5-4, while Roberta wins her match 7-1.

Match One:

A mercenary girl who works in the violent streets of an earthquake-devastated Tokyo. She typically shows very little emotion, but one should be careful not to piss her off –she gets extremely violent when she’s pissed off. Late in the series she’s revealed to be an escaped test subject from a super soldier project, which explains her more or less superhuman abilities (as well as the glowing tattoo that appears on her left arm when she gets really serious during a fight). Her favourite weapons are a pair of what appear to custom select-fire pistols based on Desert Eagles –which might seem like overkill until one considers that she mixes it up with violent psychos, mutant monsters, and heavily armed combat mechs on a fairly regular basis. She’s also a fairly skilled mecha pilot, as she’s proven in several instances where she’s been allowed use of Django, a high performance combat mech her employer provides for her use. The main point against her badassery is probably the fact that she hasn’t told her faux action girl partner to stop accompanying her on missions, considering that said partner seems to have a predilection towards getting herself captured (though given the lesbian undertones in said partner’s behaviour and the occasional hints of a more competent side that she shows, one could argue that she’s doing this deliberately so that this character can save her… your mileage may vary). Here’s Jo from Burst Angel.


Jo can be rather apathetic when she's not killing things.
Jo getting up close and personal with a military grade combat mech.
You Tube Clip: One of the best tribute AMVs I've found for this character.

Afro from Afro Samurai.

It is said that the one who becomes "No. 1" will rule the world, wielding powers akin to a god. As a boy, Afro witnessed his father's death by the hands of a man looking to claim the title of the No. 1. As the No. 2, he travels Japan trying to make his way to the mountain-top keep where Justice awaits. Afro eventually defeats his enemies and confronts Justice, whom he defeats and takes the No. 1 headband. Afro walks away from the battle, wearing the No. 1 headband and clutching the No. 2 headband in hand. Coming across an orphan who seeks vengeance; Afro hands him the No. 2, telling him to challenge him when he's ready. And if that isn't enough badass, he is voiced by Mr. Samuel L. Jackson.



Match Two:

A Time Space Administration Bureau private who ended up as a forward in Mobile Section Six. Her specialties are illusions and shooting magic, and she hopes to become an Enforcer as a way of following in the footsteps of her elder brother, whom she feels was wrongfully disgraced by his superiors prior to his death. As the only more or less "average" mage among the notables of Mobile Section Six (which include several S Rank mages, a rescued test subject from an illegal combat cyborg development program, and a summoner who was exiled from her village because they didn't trust her to control her immense powers), she suffered from feelings of inadequacy which drove her to try extreme and dangerous tactics in training, much to her squad leader’s disapproval. In the end she finally proved herself capable when she was cut off from the rest of Mobile Section Six and trapped in a damaged building with three immensely powerful combat cyborgs. Despite having suffered a wounded leg in the initial confrontation, she managed to outwit and defeat all three cyborgs. After the disbandment of Mobile Section Six, she followed through with her original objective of becoming an enforcer. Here’s Teana Lanster from Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Strikers.


Another pick of Teana.
An older -and from the looks of things, more confident- Teana.
You Tube Clip: Episode 23, Part Three. When nothing she does seems to be able to shake the three combat cyborgs that are hunting her, a trapped and wounded Teana decides to stand her ground and gamble on being able to defeat her more powerful opponents by exploiting a weakness in their attack pattern. (Runs from 0:29-1:27)

Noa Izumi (from Patlabor)
Badassery: Another police officer...this time riding a giant mech (that she named after her dog)...you know your a badass when you can kick ass and still look cute.



Voting for these matchs will end at 9:00pm Pacific Standard Time on Saturday, March 18.

Match One: Jo. I found Afro Samurai way too over the top for my tastes. Plus, Jo is pretty much a Roberta level badass in my books.

Edit: On reconsidering, it might be due more to the fact that I didn't really feel Afro had much of a character beyond being simply "a badass black samurai voiced by Samuel L. Jackson." Though to be fair Jo is hardly the deepest of characters herself...

Match Two: Teana. Despite being a mage, she's got a sort of "badass normal" appeal to her (might have something to do with the fact that being a mage or some other kind of magic user is commonplace in the Nanohaverse). Plus the way she fought during her crowning moment of awesome reminded me of a chess player. She predicted how her enemies would react to her actions and planned things out several moves in advance.

Match One: Jo from Burst Angel (because she's a girl).

Match Two: Teana Lanster from Nanoha (Noa's tough, but is she a badass? Not in my book).

Match 1: Afro from Afro Samurai
-Ginji from Black Lagoon may have been able to cut one (1) bullet in half; but Afro cut multiple bullets coming from multiple directions and above all else made it look easy.

Match 2: Teana Lanster from Magical Lyrical Girl Nanoha Strikers
-Because dual wielding is just that badass.

Match 1: Afro on the grounds of he's voiced by Samuel L. Jackson and guns only have so many bullets (I.E. V for Vendetta.)

Match 2: Teana because she's much cuter than Noa even if Noa has a giant mech.

Match #1: Afro- A Badass Normal who plowed through robots and a superhuman swordsman to be the Number One.

Match #2: Ugh. Comes down to who's the least flawed. I'll have to say Teana since she didn't need to depend on a mecha to kick ass.

Afro wins his match 6-4, while Teana wins her match 9-1.

My random dice roller program continues to do very strange things. This is what, the third time three nominations from the same person have come up in one pair of matchs? And the third pair of matchs in a row where one of my Nanoha nominations has come up?

Match One:


Sir Integra Winsgate Hellsing (from Hellsing)
Badassery: Can take on the Catholic Churches supernatural special ops and undead NAZI's, all while making Dracula her b***h.


Rally Vincint (Gunsmith Cats)
Badassery: Crack shot and fast cars...she "wuvs" it and can take down bailjumpers, psycho murderers, and lesbian drug dealers who have a thing for her...


Match Two:

The “White Devil” of the Time Space Administration Bureau, an earth-born mage who got caught up in a struggle over dangerous artifacts at the mage of nine after coming into possession of a powerful magical device. By the age of nineteen, she was a TSAB combat instructor and served as a squad leader in Mobile Section Six, a special unit set up to deal with cases involving Lost Logia. A significant portion of her allies are former enemies that she managed to defeat and then win over, including her lover extremely close friend Fate Testarossa. She once told an enemy who called her a devil “It's okay if I'm a devil. I'll just use my hellish tools to get you to listen.” (This was back when she was nine.) Her fans often use the term “befriend” as a synonym for “beat the crap out of.” Despite her general willingness to talk things over, she is utterly ruthless in combat and is perfectly willing to fight dirty if it will give her the upper hand. Here`s Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha`s Nanoha Takamachi.



Fanart: You gonna get befriended.
An older Nanoha in TSAB uniform.
Youtube Clip: "It's okay if I'm a devil. I'll just use my hellish tools to get you to listen."
Youtube Clip: An older Nanoha demonstrating what she does to people she doesn't like. Laughing

Alita/Gally (from Battle Angel Alita/Gunnm)
Badassery: Two words: Panzer Kunst

Match #1: Integra (Enjoys smoking cigars and capable of keeping an uber-powerful vampire like Alucard under control.)

Match #2: Nanoha by default. Alita doesn't have much of a description.

Match One: Integra. Difficult choice, but the attidute is the more badass of the two

Match Two: Alita/Gally. Aside from the fact that I nominated her, I hold a general dislike for Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha... Alitawent from amnesiac to amnesiac who is a master fo the Panzer Kunst form of cyborg fighting, and then on to conquer motorball; thereafter coming back from death to take on the paragons of flan eating mad scientists, and the entire solar system governing body.

Although like any good contender, she has a deep, dark secret that could ruin her reputation if it ever got out. Razz
