Can a Xenomorph warrior (Aliens) take on Maar of StarCraft 2?
Battle location: An infinite mildly dense deciduous forest.
Who would prevail?
Feats for Maar?
Hmmm… hard to tell, there is a Mission in SC2 where you have to kill him… without getting whiped by him alone…
For reference in this video someone who tried the lvl several times (to get a specific achievment) does it:
I gotta add, the player chooses the ideal troops and so on to kill him, and they got nothing compareable to a Xenomorph Warrior…
Knowing nothing on Maar but knowing Xenos and Protoss I’ll go with the named (and therefore obviously more Badass than standard units) Protoss
Sorry for the double-post:
In some Starcraft-Wiki I found following facts:
-Maar is a named (Protoss/Zerg)-Hybrid Destroyer.
– As such he has the ability to do mind Manipulation and has Void-based powers.
-When connected to an energy-source he can come back to live after beeing “killed” – Maybe he dies if he looses the source, not sure about that.
-It needs a considerable amount of damage to take him down, he kills Protoss Zealots and Stalkers with ease, maybe having troubles with Immortals, since they have additional protection when recieving heavy damage.
(Sources: starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Maar , starcraft.wikia.com/wiki/Hybrid_destroyer)
I tend to favour Maar in this battle!
Purity of body and essence fused with void powers? Voting for the hybrid over the weapon
So Maar is not a common foot soldier?
Make it a queen.
Shite, this looks pretty bad.
No sir, I don’t like it.
Purity of body and essence fused with void powers?
No he’s a corrupted version of what the Protoss and Zerg are going to be when they merge naturally.
The Xenomorph is beyond fucked.
Sorry if this is a stomp match guys, any way to save it?
Make it a Queen like murder said
No not really
We’re still pretty far away from 50, is everyone alright with it being changed to a Queen with AVP feats allowed (I don’t know if those are usually considered canon or not?)
All right with me, lets make it a queen
These psyonic powers… are they mental or material? Can he blow things up with his mind? A telekenetic/pyro/elemental may be far too much for a physical only brawler. Expert on SC lore needed.
Maar was the first hybrid to be awakened. He was faced by Zeratul after it subjugated three Zhakul Preservers. Zhakul was a Protoss Archive world. He used the Preservers’ energy to reincarnate each time Zeratul killed his body. He had the ability to lock his enemies in a graviton prison, which suspended them helplessly while giving them pain, he had a blink ability similar to Zeratul’s, he could blast his enemies with a ball of bio-plasma, and he could utilise a psionic shokwave to push back attackers and stun them. He could also mind control/corrupt most Protoss, with the most notable exception being Zeratul.
I’m not an expert at all on lore, but here’s what I could find:
There was a calc done by Sapper putting Zealot shields at capable of withstanding 38 megajoules. Going by gameplay mechanics, it takes 2.5 hits from Maar to take out a Zealot’s shields which puts Maar at 15.2 megajoules a hit (the calc was made based on gameplay mechanics, Zealot shields are stronger in manga apparently.)
On to Maar’s psionics, Maar can detect the Xeno’s presence, release a psionic shockwave (not calced or anything but can knock a roughly 5m tall mech back) Maar can also teleport, and float targets in the air for a short period of time.
Higher tier Protoss can psionic storm planets. Even untrained Protoss (mook zealots) can destroy swaths of land with theirs. Xeno gets stomped

At least its not Wank-Blitzing or Hax-Stomping at work if its a stomp-fest for either side.
What about a PredAlien Queen?
No manner of Xenomorph, or of its varied sub-iterations are sufficient. If Sapper was right in his calcs, the Maar oneshots the Xeno Queen, much less a bog-standard warrior.
Acid Blood possibly might have an effect, but given the psionics, the chances of getting close enough to strike are minimal.
Bad match was bad and not very well thought out.

Not another rushed-up fight.
Most Rushed-up engagements can be worthwhile if enough people are willing to hazard the risks, but the fact that this one seems like a dud feels like a let-down.
I just hope I hear word on when Judge Hitman can notify me to let me know if any group fight I’d send him might be up so I can work on more of my projects.
I never played SC2 (but after playing SC, I will play 2 some day), but knowing a bit about the Protoss and knowing the capabilities of the Xeno (that includes Xeno Warrior type), I was expecting this was going to be a wave after wave of Xeno Warriors just to see how far can Maar go before dying.
But just one isn’t going to do, and now that I know that Zeratul had trouble putting this guy down (it’s freaking Zeratul) a wave after wave won’t be enough.
Yeah Maar is pretty freaking strong. Curbstomp.
Maar wins..I think it would be better if we just use a normal Hybrid Reaver instead of hero version of Hybrid Destroyer..Because even a normal H.D. uses void-based attack, while H.R. uses claws…
Though Hybrid Reavers are described as extremely powerful Zerg-based being..
How do you mak battle requests
I am new
STOOMP. Even if he gets up close Maar can still withstand attacks from Immortals (protoss heavy weapons walkers)
There is a page called “Battle Requests” on the right side of the page
“…I think it would be better if we just use a normal Hybrid Reaver…”
“Though Hybrid Reavers are described as extremely powerful Zerg-based being..”
Yeah, I too think a Hybrid Reaver would make a better oponent for the Xenomorph – queen – … Still he’s gonna win, but it would be a little more of a fight
Or maybe Maar against swarms of Xeno queens and see how long he lasts?
Thought Maar was a protoss-base hybrid destroyer?
But anyway, stomp
Bring the entire xeno army against maar, maybe if he is low shield and health maar then he may win. If hes like the maar late mission (he gets stronger and stronger when he dies and revives), then every xeno in the aliens universe would get stomped on.
Another alternative would be to make it hand-to-hand, strictly fisticuffs. Or change the alien to a Xenomorph Queen Mother: avp.wikia.com/wiki/Queen_Mother#Capabilities
As seen in the above link, said alien can, literally, mentally drive people insane.
Tychus, that many xenos would literally crush him and everyone with in the span of a continent under their weight. >_>
A Queen Mother may be a bit much. Perhaps a xenomorph born from a Protoss of some sort?
