The first character up here barely needs an introduction, I think. Since we're an AW fansite, it's not all that suprising that the character who scored highest in nominations hails from that series. Her name is Lash, and she's the little genius of the Black Hole army. She often acts childish and destructive. Her best appearance by far, imho, is in Advance Wars 2, where she was one of the five villains who made your life miserable in the campaign. Lash was responsible for all of the gimmicky Black Hole inventions as gigantic cannons, laser turrets and a Deathray. In AWDS, she becomes playable in the campaign.

At the other side, we have the lovely Bayonetta, for whom I'm going to shamelessly rip off her Wikia page since I think it provides a better description of her than I can write myself ;)

Bayonetta (born Cereza), the titular main character and protagonist of the game, is a coquettish and mysterious Umbra Witch who possesses remarkable talent for the bullet arts. After a 500 year slumber in a coffin submerged at the bottom of a lake, she was awakened by Antonio Redgrave and his son Luka. With the help of Rodin, her demonic informant, weaponsmith, and proprietor of The Gates of Hell bar, Bayonetta fights to find the truth of her past. She is hounded endlessly by hosts of angels along the way.

To add to this: she has guns on her feet. Awesome! And her hair is a weapon too!

Only actual gameplay footage can give an idea just how ridiculously over the top this character is

Yeah, that's the first 5 minutes from the game or so

As for Lash, she's not Kindle so I don't care.

bayonetta is awesome and honestly while i liked lash in the day, AW characters bore me these days. putting more time into the AW games than any other single series besides pokemon is probably the cause of it.

Bayonetta looks like a genetically modified human invented by Lash.

Lash is very cool and all, but Bayonetta is FUN.

Also, "cereza" is spanish for cherry. Bring on the easy jokes bros.


PS: search Google pics "Bayonetta Nebulaluben". The cosplayer is a friend of mine. You're welcome.

PPS: oh and Narts, she did Posion too.

Poll ended. Lash made a great comeback and wins 8-6!

So, we'll see her back. I hope you've enjoyed Bayonetta, though. To me, both her and her game looked really awesome and are worth checking out!

You didn't mention the bazooka tonfas and nunchuk guns. For shame, HPD.
