WWN Character Battle 2012 - R1B9: GLaDOS vs. Zoe

Post by HPD » Wed Jul 11, 2012 5:58 am

Oh my, has it been two days already? Man, that goes by fast.

Well, off to the third set of characters then. This time, another top favourite enters the battlefield. It's none other than GLaDOS, the evil supercomputer from the Portal games! The opponent? A little fairy known as Zoe. Both characters function as guides for the player, though they do not really share the same objectives... Who will win? You decide!

Also vote here if you haven't done so already.

GLaDOS stands for Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System. She is an AI designed to test and control the Aperture Science research facility. While she initially appears to guide and help poor little Chell, over time she become more and more malicious and cruel. In Portal 2, she's revealed to have come back... with a vengeance.

If you vote GLaDOS, there will be cake.

Zoe is a little fairy who appears throughout the Spyro series (starting with the second) to guide and advise the player. By zapping Spyro with her staff, she saves his progress so that when Spyro gets himself killed, he'll start back at this last checkpoint. She's quite helpful like that.

I remember LOVING Spyro 2 and I don't even remember Zoe. On the other hand, GLaDOS is pretty much as fun as it gets.

I'd be much more inclined to vote for GLaDOS if Wheatley weren't constantly upstaging her. :/

Personally I love all three of the Spyro games (yes, Year of the Dragon was the last one >:( )and have played them to death. Unfortunately, Zoe happens to be pretty much the dullest character in the series.

Spyro does have a great cast of hilarious characters, though. Moneybags, Bentley, Agent 9, Spyro himself (in Spyro 1 he's especially great), Ripto, Hunter, you name 'em. But the females don't stand out at all (I can only think of Greta, but she has a very minor role). And then even Sheila is more fun than Zoe.

So yeah, as much as I'd like to support the Spyro trilogy, Zoe isn't gonna cut it against GLaDOS for me.

Just imagine how hilarious it would be if glados got beaten in first round by a stupid generic cg fairy

There were characters of note in Spyro that weren't the dragons that told you how to jump?

I made my decision for who to vote after reading this:

This reflects my thoughts quite well.

GLaDOS gets in 9 votes. Zoe's stuck at 6. Guess who's going to round 2...
