Hei wins his match 6-4, while Onizuka wins his match 7-2.

Match One:

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.

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

Match Two:

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.



A Time Space Administration Bureau private who served as a forward in Mobile Section Six. Her specialties are illusions and shooting magic, and she hoped to become an Enforcer as a way of following in the footsteps of her elder brother, whom she felt 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. She finally managed to prove herself 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 pic 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)

Voting for this match will end at 9:00pm Pacific Standard Time on Monday, Match 5.

Yay, that means I'm not the first person this time. :p

Match One: Roberta. The woman's been compared to a bloody terminator for a reason.

Match Two: Teana. Because she has an actual personality, and because she survived a nightmare scenario by keeping a level head. She may not have started off as a true badass, but she darn well was one when she emerged from that building.

Match 1: Roberta from Black Lagoon series
-With skills honed to a nearly supernatural level and enough weaponry to remove a battalion(any battalion) from the face of the Earth; she just may be one of the few that can take on Lucy...and win

Match 2: Afro from Afro Samurai
-Though a lot can be said for Teana's perseverance; luck only gets you so far.

Uh, Roberta is a notorious assassin who became a maid after she became disillusioned with her cause and went into hiding. Also, she's way, way better at killing people than she is at being a maid. Her main objective during her first appearance in Black Lagoon is the recovery of her employer's kidnapped son.

As for the second part:


As I noted, she's been compared to a Terminator for a reason.

Meh. Maids can be cool, but when I think of cool (or even badass) maids, I end up thinking less about Roberta, and more about Hisui and Kohaku from Tsukihime. They're just awesome, especially Kohaku. Roberta just lacks that certain someting, I guess. Then again, Tsukihime as a rule has more characterization than most series, so that might be it. I dunno, I'm rambling now.

Fetching her young master is still part of her job hence the maid outfit. Roberta's no maid with a sunny disposition like Mahoromatic's Mahoro (similar sort of background as Roberta being in the military minus the fact Mahoro's an android). If you rub her the wrong way, especially if you abduct her master, Roberta'll be raising hell to whomever does it. This is the same show that has demented incest children who made one of Balalaika's men into a pincushion (just started watching Second Barrage this weekend) and a faux-church that smuggles and sells stuff on the black market.

Meh. Maids can be cool, but when I think of cool (or even badass) maids, I end up thinking less about Roberta, and more about Hisui and Kohaku from Tsukihime. They're just awesome, especially Kohaku. Roberta just lacks that certain someting, I guess. Then again, Tsukihime as a rule has more characterization than most series, so that might be it. I dunno, I'm rambling now.

Two maids with a sunny deposition, albeit vampires? Doesn't seem hell-raising compared to the insanity and destruction inflicted throughout Ronapour with Roberta's first arrival in the series.

You got that information from watching the (completely non-existant) Tsukihime anime, didn't you? They're so much different in the visual novel that it's not even funny. Damnit, why did the anime have to be so horrifyingly bad?

Roberta wins her match 8-4, while Teana wins hers 6-5.

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.


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 age 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 number of her allies are former enemies, so much so that her fans use the term "befriend" as a synonym for "beat the crap out of"despite the fact that she has only rarely played the defeat means friendship trope absolutely straight (the most prominent example of her playing the trope straight is her lover extremely close friend Fate Testarossa). While generally willing to try to find common ground with her enemies, she is typically ready to fight when she needs to, and when she fights she fights to win. She is not above using dirty tricks to get the upper hand in combat.



She's pretty badass even as a cutesy nine year old girl, let alone an adult ace with ten years of experience and a S+ mage ranking.
Fanart: You gonna get befriended.
Youtube clip: Child Nanoha making friends with Fate. (Long)
Youtube clip: Adult Nanoha showing what she does to evil bitches she doesn't like. Smile (Short)

Match Two:

An Ishbalan who took part in the aptly named Ishbalan War, he lost everything when the State Alchemists abruptly and violently ended the
war and the government rounded up his people. Before dying, his brother gifted (or cursed) him with a right arm capable of powerful alchemical
ability that he doesn't fully understand. Convinced his brother intended this arm for vengeance, he begins (rather successfully) hunting the "vile"
State Alchemists who had taken his home from him. One of the few characters in the series able to boast repeatedly fighting the terrifying homunculi and living to tell about it, I give you Full Metal Alchemist's: Scar.



A Chinese-American born and raised in Chinatown, Manhattan, she does most of the fighting for the Lagoon Company. She spent most of her youth as a thief and murderer. Revy is very competitive, easily bored, and extremely ill-tempered. She is undiplomatic, believing in the use of
brute force and coercion to get her way. She is also a heavy smoker and drinker. Here's Black Lagoon's Revy.



Voting for this round will end at 9:00pm Pacific Standard Time on Thursday, April 12.

Match One: Nanoha. Eight words: Strikers. Vivio. The White Devil goes Mama Bear.

For a more detailed summary of what I'm talking about, click on the spoiler tag.

Spoiler:

In the third season (Strikers) Nanoha is an adult and a squad leader in the elite TSAB unit known as Mobile Section Six. At one point in the series, Mobile Section Six ends up rescuing a mysterious young girl named Vivio. Nanoha and Fate end up agreeing to take care of her temporarily until a proper foster home can be found for her, and Nanoha ends up getting kind of attached.

Problem is, Vivio is s key part of the enemy’s plans. She’s a clone of a great historical figure, and she can be used to activate the Saint’s Cradle, an extremely powerful ancient warship that lies hidden under the surface of Mid Childa. So the villains launch an assault that very nearly destroys Section Six’s headquarters and take Vivio back in the process. An extremely upset Nanoha doesn’t have any idea where she is until sometime later, when the Cradle is activated and begins to rise towards orbit (from where it can essentially hold Mid-Childa’s capital city hostage).

So Nanoha now knows where her kidnapped adoptive daughter is. Nanoha is also an incredibly powerful and talented prodigy mage who has had ten years to strengthen her powers, hone her skills, and gain combat experience as a member of the TSAB. So she boards the Cradle, storms her way through large numbers of drones despite facing heavy interference from Anti Magilink Fields, overpowers a powerful combat cyborg armed with a massive BFG, and blasts her way into the Cradle’s throne room. At which point one of her enemies uses a control device implanted in Vivio to remotely activate her powers and convinces her that Nanoha is not her beloved adoptive mother come to rescue her, but someone who took her mother away. Vivio assumes an adult form that gives her full access to her powers and attacks Nanoha.

So Nanoha ends up being a target for a berserk rage from a clone of one of the most insanely strong mages in recorded history. Despite this, she manages to survive long enough for the seekers she released before entering the Throne Room to locate the enemy controlling both Vivio and the Cradle’s defences, at which point she puts a bind on Vivio to slow her down and takes the opportunity to take out said enemy by shooting her from across the ship and through multiple intervening bulkheads. Unfortunately, taking out said cyborg only partly frees Vivio from the control device, she now recognises Nanoha, but is only partly successful in holding back her attacks. Reacting to Vivio’s pleas, Nanoha promises to save her, blocks her next attack, and puts her in an extremely strong bind. After which she tells Vivio “This is going to hurt a bit, okay?” and proceeds to blast through her defences and destroy the control device implanted in her by exercising extreme precision in the execution of the mother of all Starlight Breakers.

Note that while it's not really visible in that youtube clip, Raising Heart (her staff) actually starts cracking from the amount of power she's putting through it while destroying the device that is implanted in Vivio. She's really pushing herself to her limits in that scene.

Also, there's what the splash damage from those Starlight Breakers did to the
Throne Room's deck. Note that that's her clutching Vivio down near the middle of the crater.


I kind of feel like I cheated changing her profile pics the way I did, although her original pictures were meant to be placeholders until I could get do some more thorough pic hunting/screenshot taking anyway. Then again, I changed one of her youtube clips too...

So to make things fair, does anyone have any upgrades they'd like me to do to the profile for their characters?

Match Two: Revy. It's freaking Revy. Do I really need to say more?

Depends on what real life and the Internet implore me to do.

Fetching her young master is still part of her job hence the maid outfit.

That is an acceptable answer.

Match 1: Sir Integra Winsgate Hellsing from Hellsing
-I'm just not a big fan of badass loli.

Match 2: Two Hands Revy from Black Lagoon
-Scar may have the 'incredible demon arm' going for him; but Revy can improvise a situation whereas Scar more than likely cannot.

I perceive that my votes would be most strategically placed in the positions marked Integra and Scar. That is all.

On second thought, much as I think it's actually the adult Nanoha that really secured the character's claim to being a serious badass with her mama bear rampage, Nanoha is known for being a badass adorable (she's was use as the main picture for that page on TV tropes until recently when her image stopped working, for crying out loud) so I may as well market that side of her too.

So, clips of loli-Nanoha being badass:

Clip One: "It's okay if I'm a demon. I'll just use my hellish tools to make you listen."
Clip Two: Nanoha manages to stay concious long enough to fire off the Starlight Breaker she's been charging despite having her linker core painfully ripped out of her body.
Clip Three: Yes Vita. She is going to attack from that distance. Smile Also, her staff is evil. Either that, or it's just pissed about what your hammer did to it during your first encounter.

You know, I’d sort of tried not to take the lobbying too far this time around. But Nanoha is basically the last hope I’ve got left in this tournament, so I’m going to lay out her case as best I can.

I’d initially wanted to avoid negativity and concentrate on what’s positive about Nanoha, but that doesn’t seem to be working. So here goes a direct explanation as to why I think Nanoha is more badass than Integra. And what it basically comes down to is that from what I’ve seen, Integra mostly just speaks badass. Okay, I can’t speak fwith authority on the later parts of the manga where someone apparently finally manages to temporarily put Alucard out of action, but from what I’ve seen in the Hellsing Ultimate OVA, she mostly gives over the top badass speeches while ordering the more or less invincible vampire servant she inherited to go deal with things. Yeah, okay, she does a little bit of her own fighting on occasion, but not very much from the sections I’ve seen. Her badassery seems to be mostly confined to massively over the top speechs (which are, admittedly, pretty badass –but they’re still speechs).

Nanoha, on the other hand, has fought and won a lot of very difficult battles, albeit often as part of a team. She may be a character in a magical girl franchise, but she is a character in a magical girl franchise where things like tactics and ruthlessness are important in fights. Weaker opponents can defeat stronger ones by fighting smarter (an example of this is Teana’s victory over those three combat cyborgs –note that adult Nanoha was Teana’s instructor and squad leader in Mobile Section Six). What makes Nanoha such a force to be reckoned with isn’t merely the fact that she’s powerful. In fact she has gone up against several opponents that are more powerful than she is (in some cases massively so). What makes Nanoha –especially adult Nanoha- a force to be reckoned with is a combination of immense magical power, razor sharp skills, and a mind that finds ways to win. She is a versatile, finely honed weapon that has proven time and again that when it all comes down to the wire, she will find a way to win no matter what the odds and no matter what it takes. (Her rescue of Vivio is a great example of this –desperate circumstances pretty much forced her to play along with the enemy’s game plan initially, but she still found a way to outmanoeuvre her opponent and turn the tables.)

Although all that being said, I’d be lying if I said her massive beam onslaughts and tendency to make her opponents wear an “oh shit” expression right before they get massively owned weren’t a key part of her appeal. Laughing

Integra wins her match 6-3, while Revy wins her match 7-4. This concludes round two of voting. Round three will be up shortly.

In the meantime, here's a video that I thought was rather fitting under the circumstances:



As a point of note, while most of this uses stuff from Strikers, that silly "lyrical magical" incantation is from early in season one, when Nanoha hadn't outgrown some of its more typical magical girl elements yet (so before the Time Space Administration Bureau warship shows up :p).
