WWN Character Battle 2012 - R1B7: Ms. Fortune vs. Jynx

Post by HPD » Sat Jul 07, 2012 7:42 am

Hello there. Still enjoying the contest? Right now, it looks like Lin and Leona are really evenly matched. As I write this, Lin is leading marginally with 5-4, so who'll win is still up in the air. Every vote is important, so make sure you've made yours.

This next battle is also going to be one to watch. It's the feline thief Ms. Fortune from the new and shiny Skullgirls against good-old Jynx, the gen 1 Pokémon! Sparks will surely fly. Heads too, most likely.

(3) Ms. Fortune

Skullgirls

Copied this straight from the Skullgirls site since it's basically exactly what I need:

A feline feral, Nadia Fortune is the last surviving member of the Fishbone Gang, a notorious band of otherwise Dagonian thieves. Their last mission ended in tragedy: a failed attempt to steal the mysterious Life Gem from Lorenzo Medici resulted in their grisly deaths. Before meeting her own doom, Ms. Fortune swallowed the Life Gem and managed to digest it. The Gem’s power permeated her entire body, making it truly undying… even after being cut into several pieces.

Now hiding in the shadows of Little Innsmouth, Ms. Fortune plots to avenge her fallen comrades.

(6) Jynx

Pokémon everything (since R/B/Y)

Number 124: Jynx. Pretty much every one from our generation has a nostalgic fondness of the first generation of Pokémon. Jynx is here to remind you why. Being a female-only Ice/Psychic type, she's had kind of a special status in R/B/Y, sporting some very good moves. They tend to be very kind Pokémon and like to use their telepathic powers.

jynx is so so awkwardly designed but what really holds her back is the fact that in the original generation, the only one she mattered in, she was one of the terrible in-game trade pokemon, and i vaguely remember you needed something ridiculous to trade for it. furthermore i honestly don't like ice as a type- all it does is counter dragon, and i always preferred lapras or articuno or dewgong for my dragon slaying. honestly, not all of the 150 original pokemon were perfect, and jynx is one that probably could have been sent back to the drawing board.

i have only played the demo of skullgirls for all of five minutes so i can't say anything about the gameplay really, but i like it's character designs and ms fortunes whole take off her head thing is hilarious, so yeah, it's a pretty easy choice for me.

so i'm going on vacation until next friday, sadly this means my deeply thought out and insightful votes will not be able to be posted

so just remember, if it's popular, i probably would have voted against it.

Close... Jynx, even though Jynx is amongst my least favorite Pokémon and could send back to the drawing board if you ask me.

They even straight up admit they're voting for this character just because they've played the game even though they hate the character

what the fudge

I don't even like Skullgirls as a game (I suck balls at it) but at least I can see the characters are pure genius, and they're wonderfully executed (animation, voice acting, everything) every single one of them could storm this entire contest if there was any justice.

Who?

I don't hate Jynx. I only dislike how she is drawn, pretty much. But in terms of character, there is only one Pokémon I would vote at instead of Jynx... and her name is Gardevoir. But both are incredible if you use your imagination and it's a pity the anime writers did not bother to give one of the main characters a Jynx and/or a Gardevoir back in the days.

On the basis I hate Jynx, I don't want another Miror B, and from what I've seen, Ms Fortune is an interesting character, my vote goes to Ms Fortune.

Not really, unless you are a pervert.

And if you are, then you're forgetting about female characters.

I genuinely like Jynx. It's one of my favourite pokemon. Plus, Ice/Psychic is a pretty unique typing, and it's got a signature move to boot (Lovely Kiss). Also, this comic:
