WWN Character Battle 2012 - R1B5: Samus vs. Kaelyn

Post by HPD » Tue Jul 03, 2012 5:41 am

Full steam ahead, people! We're at the fifth battle and not gonna stop! Another top favourite enters the battlefield this time: Samus Aran! Will she live up to expectations, or will Kaelyn the Dove, her opponent this round, surprise everyone and win against the Nintendo icon? You decide!

Kaelyn's introduction snippet comes courtesy of Terragent! Thank you!

Samus is one of those characters that I'd hardly need to write an introduction about. She's been a Nintendo icon since the original Metroid game first appeared on the NES in 1986, one of the first video games ever to have a female protagonist. Samus is a bounty hunter in space and comes equipped with a power suit and a whole bunch of awesome. If you really feel the need for more of an introduction, just click on that "Metroid in 5 minutes" link and watch the show ;)

Kaelyn the Dove is a half-celestial priestess who has devoted her life to overturning a truly cosmically fudge-up situation in the Forgotten Realms; she joins the game's protagonist initially as a favour to her siblings, but ends up attaching herself to the cause through the course of the game. Despite her somewhat depressing worldview, she's got a better claim to be considered "good" than pretty much every single deity in the pantheon.

It does not end well for her.

Huh. I never noticed that Zero Suit Samus wore heels until now.

Gonna' have to vote for the visible heels.

Only in Other M's (terrible) redesigns.

Anyway, I'll always vote for interesting characters over silent protagonists, so Kaelyn gets the vote.

Good grief, did Nintendo really do that?

I thought voting for Kaelyn was going to be hard.

Looks like that's another reason to avoid Other M, then.

Still need to finish prime 2... **** spider guardian >_> Morph ball is fun, but many of those puzzles are EVIL. And this is a mandatory boss puzzle that drains you health with no save point nearby! *sigh*

Anyway, Samus it is.

I like Kaelyn and she also has one of the prettiest voices ever, but I favor a good run and gun platformer with fast-paced action.

I'm voting Samus because Metroid Fusion and Zero Mission were some of the must fun I had with my GBA back in the day, and believe it or not those are still my favourite Metroid Games.

It's 9-4 to Samus, so she's clearly won this one! We'll meet her in the next round and say goodbye to Kaelyn. She was an interesting character, but no match for Samus.
