WWN Character Battle 2012 - R1B6: Lin vs. Leona

Post by HPD » Thu Jul 05, 2012 8:28 am

Alright, so, round 6. This time it's brains versus brawn as two cool ladies duke it out in this virtual arena. Oh yeah, Leona's part was done by Kanzer this time, so give him a round of applause y'all!

Vote for Samus or Kaelyn if you haven't done by now. It's still open for two days but to not tarry.

Lin is the second-in-command of the 12th Battalion, nicknamed Brenner's Wolves (after commander Brenner). She is an apt tactician and logician and adds a more cynical point of view to Brenner's ideas on the goodness of humanity. She does respect the man a great deal, though. In-game, she's one of the stronger COs out there.

Leona Heidern is a character from the King of Fighters series by SNK. Infected at a young age by one of Orochi's harbingers with a strange curse called the Riot of the Blood, she entered a berserker state of rage and slaughtered her entire village. Days after the incident, she was found by Heidern, a mercenary, and when he saw her agility and prowess he decided to take her as a daughter and train her as his successor. Since then, she has been a member of the Ikari Warriors Team, along with Clark Steel, Ralf Jones and Whip. Leona, Ralf and Clark have appeared in the Metal Slug franchise too.

As a fighter, Leona is a capable warrior, with an uncanny ability to cut with her bare hands and the mastery of martial arts and of Heidern's personal assassination techniques. She fights bare-handed and wears special boots, but she can even kill with her hairclips and wears explosive earrings. Leona is a silent, lonely person, and she fears the next time she will enter the Riot of Blood again. Even though her attitude is cold and distant, she knows her teammates, her friends, are there for her always. When in Blood Riot, she experiences an agonic bloodlust, her physical attributes drastically improve at the cost of her sanity and restraint. Her skin darkens and her eyes and hair turn red. There are other characters, Iori and Shermie, who also suffer from the Riot of the Blood.

KoF '98 Ikari Team walkthrough - Leona in min 3:43 and 6:18.
KOF Maximum Impact 2 - Leona Playthrough. This game has terrible voice acting...
KOF XIII Arcade - Leona first and in min 10:25, 15:45, 20:46 (Boss Battle) and 24:05/27:50 (Final Boss). Ikari's ending sequence at 30:16 Mai's tits bounce at 6:16. (Man, this game is BEAUTIFUL)

...or if you think Kanzer's suggested vids are too long, here's a one-minute rundown of Leona in KoFXIII

Man this is gonna be a close one. Even this being an AW forum, I still think (hope) Leona can make it.

Lin got in a nice lead on Leona and wins soundly after all with 9-4!

So far 6 battles, 0 seed upsets. That's a remarkable thing.
