    IB with Lightning just cause of the setting she’s in with the guns and bombs and what not, but I always lose track of what Link has what items, so he could still have magical hax maybe.

  2. Chuck inglish April 16, 2012 at 2:07 pm -      #2

    Well since this is ocarina of time link that means this is also majora’s mask link right?

  3. Mister Teal April 16, 2012 at 2:09 pm -      #3

    Oh yeah it’s the same guy between those two games. Well more shit in the sack for Link then, can’t hurt him.

    Negative nerd is going to love this match than

  5. Carmine April 16, 2012 at 2:43 pm -      #5

    Lighting distracts him with her boobies :]

  6. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 2:50 pm -      #6

    Doesn’t Lightning have guns of some sort?

    Anyway, if Link also has access to Majora’s Mask items then he’ll quite an arsenal for this match.

  7. Carmine April 16, 2012 at 2:51 pm -      #7

    @NZ

    She has guns right on her chest

    BAM!

  8. GuardianAngel1911 April 16, 2012 at 2:56 pm -      #8

    I’ll wait for more feats but I’m going to root for the new girl for now.

    @Carmin
    The only guns that ever matter lol.

  10. Hellion Nick April 16, 2012 at 3:21 pm -      #10

    @ Negative Zero
    She has her gunblade regardless of incarnation, though i take it this is lightning FF13.

  11. DReager1 April 16, 2012 at 3:33 pm -      #11

    Pretty close fight….I’m going with Lightning on this one. She has healing magic, every basic element magic, and her sword’s not too shabby either :D

  12. DReager1 April 16, 2012 at 3:35 pm -      #12

    Also Lightning is able to jump huge distances thanks to a lightning device that cushions the fall. I’d also wager that she’s faster than Link :)

  13. Hellion Nick April 16, 2012 at 3:49 pm -      #13

    @DReager1
    You mean the AMP Anti Matter Principal.
    for what i recall its making the user capeble of creating zero gravity fields. allowing the user to survive falls from great hights. its a nice addition to lightning but i value her magic and swordplay more.

    Also i would pick lightning over link knowing her powers as L,Cie. even though she isn’t allowed to summon odin she can still pack a mean punch to link from what i heard about his incarnation we’re using.

    Are Odin or those monsters she summons in XIII-2 allowed for Lightning or do those count as outside help?

  15. Soldier's Shadow April 16, 2012 at 3:54 pm -      #15

    Light’s AMP was lost in the beginning of XIII IIRC.

  16. fallstar thief April 16, 2012 at 4:02 pm -      #16

    winner of this fight vs zack fair

  17. Hellion Nick April 16, 2012 at 4:04 pm -      #17

    @Soldier’s Shadow
    Lightning vs Caius is invalid. this is most likely FF13 since no incarnation but just a damn picture was given. also FF13-2 lightning might be a bit to OP for this match.

    Odin is by FP rules forbidden as you were right to suspect. i personally love odin a lot but he isn’t allowed to participate in this match.

    And recall FF13 at the end where Lightning and CO get back to cocoon. they make a nice jump with the help of AMP. Fang said to vanille at this point that this is how people on cocoon get around. just to be corrected with the line this is how lightning gets around.
    maybe brings back a memory :P

  18. Soldier's Shadow April 16, 2012 at 4:43 pm -      #18

    Lightning vs Caius is valid as we go by current incarnation according to FP rules as it wasn’t specified as to which incarnation of Light is present.

  19. Proto-Mind April 16, 2012 at 4:44 pm -      #19

    The one with the guns wins. If Link becomes a Goron, I suppose that will add some defense for him, but I don’t know how much punishment he could take before falling.

  20. Chuck inglish April 16, 2012 at 4:45 pm -      #20

    can link aim dodge?

  21. MrTBSC April 16, 2012 at 4:54 pm -      #21

    “can link aim dodge?”
    in orcarina of time? as far as i remember yes

    Anyone can aim dodge.

  23. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 5:04 pm -      #23

    This fight=Castration of the latest Iron Man match against the Dreadnought, due to the idiotic management of that match! :cool:

  24. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 5:17 pm -      #24

    Why are people pretending this badass fight doesn’t exist? :cry:
    Its N64 Link vs Lightning, c’mon people!!!

  25. GuardianAngel1911 April 16, 2012 at 5:23 pm -      #25

    Lightning strikes and Link falls
    there I got that out of my system

  26. Hitman H94 April 16, 2012 at 5:27 pm -      #26

    If the XIII-2 version is too OP for this battle, it will be the XIII version.

  27. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 5:30 pm -      #27

    @Hitman

    Thanks.
    I also hope that the Admiral follows through with Alaric vs Dresdenverse Skinwalker to plan out, I want no chances taken after that horrid summoning of the idiot who suggested I.Man vs Dreadnought, actually!

  28. DReager1 April 16, 2012 at 5:43 pm -      #28

    @Hellion Nick Yeah, that’s what I meant, Lightning gets overpowered? Great! I really need to pick up that game, I own the first, but I’m waiting for the price to go down to get it. Anyway sounds like everyone picks Link, but it’s not a downright stomp right? So FP award time :D

  29. Hellion Nick April 16, 2012 at 5:52 pm -      #29

    “Lightning vs Caius is valid as we go by current incarnation according to FP rules as it wasn’t specified as to which incarnation of Light is present.”
    well i’ll be damned, being new to FP really means i got to start remembering all the damn rules.

    then again yes FF13-2 lightning is the guardian of etro and for that matter is practicly onto a god.
    now i know god deity or any of those titles go for nothing here on FP, but lightning has show some powers in FF13-2 that she clearly couldn’t have achieved in FF13 as a L,Cie. showing she grew tremendously in power.

    for what i heard about the incarnation on link i do have to say that FF13 lightning might turn out to be interesting.

  30. Soldier's Shadow April 16, 2012 at 7:22 pm -      #30

    @Hitman


    I can’t say if the new Light would be too much for Link or not as I have yet to play the game or skim through the cutscenes at the very least.

  31. Carmine April 16, 2012 at 7:23 pm -      #31

    Lightning shows him her guns, and BAM$!@ he’s a dead little kid.

  32. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 7:27 pm -      #32

    Lightning has guns, unless Link can do anything quickly, then im going to assume that this will be similar to Dante vs Kratos

  33. fallstar thief April 16, 2012 at 7:31 pm -      #33

    how good is lightning in mele combat? just wondering.

  34. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 7:35 pm -      #34

    I thought this was meant to be relatively speaking a swordfight, for the most part. :sad:
    Man, don’t tell me officer N.Z’s gonna have a cow! :cry: (Again!!!)

  35. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 7:42 pm -      #35

    Basically this is like Dante vs Kratos again

    Where guns pretty much give Lightning the win from the looks of things

  36. fallstar thief April 16, 2012 at 7:46 pm -      #36

    “Where guns pretty much give Lightning the win from the looks of things”
    sounds like zack have been a better oponent

  37. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 7:47 pm -      #37

    “sounds like zack have been a better oponent”

    Probably

  38. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 7:51 pm -      #38

    Man…would this fight be better if it were a matter of swordsmanship?(and I’m aware that N64 Link didn’t get raised for swordsmanship properly, compared to LttP/Oracles/L.A Link, but C’mon, here!!!)

  39. The Geek Lord April 16, 2012 at 7:54 pm -      #39

    I think Lightning takes this relatively easily. With Odin, Zantetsuken and Army of One on her side, not to mention her magic and her gunblade, it’s pretty much a stomp.
    And are you talking about Zack Fair? Because that would be an AWESOME fight. Zack would probably win though…

  40. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 7:56 pm -      #40

    “And are you talking about Zack Fair? Because that would be an AWESOME fight. Zack would probably win though…”

    Yeah, we think Lightning vs Zack Fair would be a better match

    And like I said, Dante vs Kratos again….

  41. DReager1 April 16, 2012 at 7:57 pm -      #41

    Dante vs Kratos was classic. That debate went on forever! Dante barely won eh :D

  42. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 7:57 pm -      #42

    Yet this match is better than the other one that got posted today, why?

  43. DReager1 April 16, 2012 at 7:58 pm -      #43

    Because Lightning and Link are cooler than Iron Man and that other guy :D

  44. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:00 pm -      #44

    “That debate went on forever!”

    Only because of retards like gendrons, otherwise Dante would have won by page 3

    “Dante barely won eh”

    Yeah, Dante got the FPA, though not in the way me and others were hoping =/

  45. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 8:04 pm -      #45

    Still trying to rinse my eyes out from that eye-gouging match with the Dreadnought vs Iron Man, in here.
    Its not working!!!

  46. OMEGAMI April 16, 2012 at 8:05 pm -      #46

    Dante barely won? that was over the first page, it was trolls that kept it going, they are the only explanation to how some ridiculous matches get awarded when they should have died in the first page.

  47. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 8:07 pm -      #47

    @OMEGAMI

    Easy, now’s not best time to show Trolloc war syndromes, trust me when I say this from Exp, alright?

  48. Proto-Mind April 16, 2012 at 8:07 pm -      #48

    You know, things could play out differently if both characters start out at a distance. The only problem is that Nayru’s Love lasts for 1 minute, and start-up time is an issue. Yeah, this match isn’t fair. People need to consider these things in the future.

  49. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:07 pm -      #49

    Yeah, Pyre and OriginalA pretty much nailed Dantes victory on Page 1

    gendrons and hellboy dragged it on pointlessly with their poor evidence for their claims of Kratos’ abilities

  50. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:08 pm -      #50

    LoZ takes its 5th loss in a row. Boom

  51. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 8:10 pm -      #51

    Eh, guns are tough to get around for the gun-less. However, there is always the Stone Mask.

  52. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:12 pm -      #52

    Unless you have superhuman durability, which Link doesn’t exactly demonstrate to my knowledge

  53. Hermit April 16, 2012 at 8:12 pm -      #53

    Link: Elfus imitatus
    Lightning: Breastus hugeus

  54. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 8:14 pm -      #54

    Some of the Link’s have demostrated some good durability feats.

  55. OMEGAMI April 16, 2012 at 8:15 pm -      #55

    But it helped Dante get an award, poorly debated and short debates don’t get awards, look at Samus vs Lara, that was suppose to die a long time ago but thanks to one user it got dragged long enough for Samus to get her award, if all debates had a troll on the other side then everybody will get ridicules reward, imagine Dante vs The Teletubbies, Put in a troll willing to drag it and BANG!!! Dante gets an extra point out of an unfare match.

  56. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:16 pm -      #56

    “But it helped Dante get an award”

    Yeah, but not in the way me and others were hoping for =[

  57. fallstar thief April 16, 2012 at 8:18 pm -      #57

    “Link: Elfus imitatus
    Lightning: Breastus hugeus”
    lol

  58. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 8:20 pm -      #58

    How good is Lightning against invisible opponents?

  59. Soldier's Shadow April 16, 2012 at 8:21 pm -      #59

    “how good is lightning in mele combat? just wondering.”

    ===

    Check out the links I posted above. She’s fairly strong in it as she deflected an attack from Chaos Bahamut and a sword beam from Caius that created massive area damage. She’s fairly nimble too and has some unarmed combat skill going by how she disarmed that PSICOM troop but I wouldn’t give her too much credit there as Snow later said those troops were green.

    ===

    That said, I don’t think she has enough physical strength to overpower Link.

    ===

    “sounds like zack have been a better oponent”

    ===

    Zack’s able to react to assault rifle fire from several directions, Light hasn’t shown any speed feats on that level. Barring speed, they’d be decently matched.

  60. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 8:21 pm -      #60

    @OMEGAMI

    True enough, but in general its still too risky.

    @Squire

    You can say that again, in fact I dare you to say it again!

  61. fallstar thief April 16, 2012 at 8:25 pm -      #61

    @cross
    lol
    @ss
    “Zack’s able to react to assault rifle fire from several directions, Light hasn’t shown any speed feats on that level. Barring speed, they’d be decently matched.”
    so in your opinion would it be worth suggesting or do you have any other ideas for an oponent for zack

  62. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 8:27 pm -      #62

    @Squire

    JIC, you agree that this match is best to be resolved in a swordfight?

  63. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 8:28 pm -      #63

    Anyway, dat Stone Mask might help a bit.

  64. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 8:31 pm -      #64

    @Officer N.Z/Mad-Eye Morgan

    We know, I’m just asking how does Lightning fare against Invisible opponents, here.

  65. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 8:33 pm -      #65

    N64 Link can become unnoticable, not full blown invisible. He can however, see invisible things with the Lens of Truth.

  66. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 8:35 pm -      #66

    @Officer N.Z/Mad-Eye Morgan

    N64 Link will sure as Tartarus itself need those in case there’s no sub-scenario where its a relatively ‘pure’ swordfight that will determine the overall outcome of the match, itself, if you ask me!

  67. Carmine April 16, 2012 at 8:36 pm -      #67

    Well Link is a lightning timer B)

  68. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:37 pm -      #68

    You don’t say Carmine :maybe:

  69. Soldier's Shadow April 16, 2012 at 8:37 pm -      #69

    “Anyway, dat Stone Mask might help a bit.”

    How long does it last?

    “N64 Link can become unnoticable, not full blown invisible. He can however, see invisible things with the Lens of Truth.”

    Unnoticeable? Explain, please.

  70. Soldier's Shadow April 16, 2012 at 8:38 pm -      #70

    “so in your opinion would it be worth suggesting or do you have any other ideas for an oponent for zack”

    ===

    I think we’d be better off finding a different opponent for Zack than Light simply due to the speed difference.

    ===

    I still say Walter or Anderson from Hellsing.

  71. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 8:39 pm -      #71

    “How long does it last?”
    As long as he’s wearing it.

    “Unnoticeable? Explain, please.”
    It makes Link “as plain as a stone”. Enemies and even bosses payed no attention to him when wearing it.

  72. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:40 pm -      #72

    How durable is he with the Stone Mask?

  73. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 8:42 pm -      #73

    What does durability have anything to do with the Stone Mask? It doesn’t effect his durability.

  74. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:43 pm -      #74

    Oh I thought it made him more durable instead of unnoticeable. Dammit

    Reading comprehension fail on my part

  75. Carmine April 16, 2012 at 8:43 pm -      #75

    I wonder what would lighting look like is she was a strong muscular man?

  76. Soldier's Shadow April 16, 2012 at 8:48 pm -      #76

    “It makes Link “as plain as a stone”. Enemies and even bosses payed no attention to him when wearing it.”

    ===

    Sounds kinda like gameplay mechanics to me….though I now have a funny image in my head of that being Link’s version of Solid Snake’s cardboard box.

    ===

    “I wonder what would lighting look like is she was a strong muscular man?”

    ===

    Cloud Strife.

  77. StealthRanger April 16, 2012 at 8:49 pm -      #77

    “Cloud Strife.”

    Do not want

  78. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 8:54 pm -      #78

    “Sounds kinda like gameplay mechanics to me….”
    It’s not. It does exactly what it’s descriptions says.

    “….though I now have a funny image in my head of that being Link’s version of Solid Snake’s cardboard box.”
    Lol it pretty much is.

  79. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 8:59 pm -      #79

    @Officer N.Z/Mad-Eye Morgan

    It would be hilarious if someone could have a match with the Stone Mask vs the Cardbord Box in terms of which one would you rather use, right? :lol:
    Just let me get more items for the same kind of purposes, its comedy gold in that case.

  80. Soldier's Shadow April 16, 2012 at 9:42 pm -      #80

    “It’s not. It does exactly what it’s descriptions says.”

    ===

    Well, I suppose if Link wasn’t directly facing Light and pulled it off he can go for a stealth attack but I don’t think he’d just magically become unnoticeable right in front of her.

  81. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 9:44 pm -      #81

    @Soldier’s Shadow

    As a Watcher of the pile, shall we see if we can divide the match in reason between two sub-scenarios, one where we’re asking whether or not N64 Link can reasonably pull off a stealth kill on Lightning, and the other being an outright swordfight?

  82. Proto-Mind April 16, 2012 at 10:22 pm -      #82

    @Negative Zero:
    “However, there is always the Stone Mask.”

    True. What do you think of the Giant’s Mask here as well?

    @Soldier’s Shadow:
    “Sounds kinda like gameplay mechanics to me….though I now have a funny image in my head of that being Link’s version of Solid Snake’s cardboard box.”

    I do recall one time when I was caught by a Gerudo, she said she could see Link. I would probably have to say that the Stone Mask is like when you’re trying to find your keys, and even though you see them, you miss them until eventually you find them right on the table. You think, “I just looked right there!” That may be how the Stone Mask works.

    I am also reminded of an ability called stealth. It isn’t the same as being invisible. Instead, one can hide behind things which one would not normally be able to hide behind. For example, consider this plant.

    image.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/56478/56478,1177817665,1/stock-photo-tropical-house-plant-in-a-pot-and-windows-with-blinds-3184036.jpg

    If anyone stood behind that, you’d be able to see that person. Except, with this stealth ability, if you stood behind that, you would not be noticed. It’s weird, I know. Sometimes someone can just be standing right there and you don’t see that person.

    Great to have you here, too.
    With you here, Gut hunch says that this match will be feeling more Badass, now!

    “True. What do you think of the Giant’s Mask here as well?”

    Bigger target? I don’t have majora’s mask but can Link use weapons?(Do they also increase in size?)

    Splinter Cell?

  85. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 10:40 pm -      #85

    “True. What do you think of the Giant’s Mask here as well?”
    He could take more bullets to kill I’d say.

  86. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 10:45 pm -      #86

    @Officer N.Z/Mad-Eye Morgan

    Not to mention that he’d have to be Pwned Like a Boss before the 1st sub-scenario that’s not a ‘pure’ swordfight sees any resolution at all, right?

  87. Proto-Mind April 16, 2012 at 11:16 pm -      #87

    @Commander Cross:
    “Great to have you here, too.
    With you here, Gut hunch says that this match will be feeling more Badass, now!”

    Haha! Thanks. I’m just glad Negative Zero brought up the Stone Mask.

    @Alpha or Omega:
    “Bigger target? I don’t have majora’s mask but can Link use weapons?(Do they also increase in size?)”

    He’s bigger, yes. If I recall correctly, he can only use his sword. So, either his other items aren’t affected by the mask’s magic for some reason, or it’s a game mechanic.

    I’m not sure if weapons that use magic would work, though, since using certain magic cancels the use of others. This has been consistent in just about every Zelda game I can possibly think of.

    “Splinter Cell?”

    I don’t know how the mechanics work in that game.

    @Negative Zero:
    “He could take more bullets to kill I’d say.”

    Yep.

  88. Commander Cross April 16, 2012 at 11:21 pm -      #88

    @Proto-Mind

    All the same, I’d wager that JIC, the sub-scenario to be added should allow for a ‘pure’ swordfight between the two to be available as an option if you ask me!

  89. Negative Zero April 16, 2012 at 11:24 pm -      #89

    “He’s bigger, yes. If I recall correctly, he can only use his sword.”
    Most likely a game mechanic. Besides, people debate for a giant Kratos using gear he hasn’t used in giant mode.

    In GoW1 when he fought Ares all his weapons became huge like him. Thats why its argued that his weapons can become huge when he does

    Like how he won Aang vs Kratos that way

    Didn’t ever happen again though did it?

    Ares’ weapons were also huge like him, Claws of Hades were huge like Hades was in giant form when he ripped a Titan off Mt Olympus in the background at one point

    With that its safe to assume that god-forged weapons in GoW can grow in size like their weilders, hence why Kratos stomped Aang

    Either way thats beside the point, have any of Links other weapons become huge when he goes giant form?

    So is the option for a ‘pure’ swordfight for a viable sub-scenario still doable?

    If we can add another round like with Black Templar vs Harry Dresden (although I feel guilty of it tbh after accusing it of being a spite thread) that will make the fight better than ‘Lightning shoots Link and Link dies /thread” then sure I guess

    Only Link’s sword and shield were available to use while in giant mode. Still game gameplay mechanics on that though.

    What would link look like if he was a sensitive feminine female?

    @S.R

    There there, this is much better.

    @Officer N.Z/Mad-Eye Morgan

    Is this agreeable to add another round, then?
    I’m all for it already even if you’re not, but I’d feel all the more eager if you are!

    @Carmine

    I don’t know. :?
    Probably akin to Arthur’s Gender-flipped Avatar from Fate/Stay Night, as if a Gender-Flipped Potter that may or may not have been inspired by that idea isn’t already confusing enough?

    “Still game gameplay mechanics on that though.”

    Yeah, thing is, none of Links other weapons have shown to grow in size at all, thus you have no real premise for it being a gameplay resitriction

    Unlike with Kratos where him and several gods have had their weapons shown to grow in size with them
