    Didn’t Kain and Raziel beat Link and Ganon here though?
    -
    Anyways couldn’t Kain just soul rape Link or just rip the blood from his body? Telekinesis and teleportation work just as nicely too imo

    Would the magic armor have any affect against Kain’s abilities?

  3. ZomBat June 21, 2013 at 8:23 am -      #3

    Seems spitish from what I know about Kain. Of course I could be underestimating Link.

    Yeah I feel like the strongest part from the Kain and Raz team is fighting the weaker part of Link and Ganondorf. Someone may put up a defence though.

    As Skarbrand said, TK and teleport or blood rape are some of the easiest things Kain can do.

    What sort of defense does Link have against magic?

  6. Kyuuketsuki June 21, 2013 at 10:06 am -      #6

    Did not expect this to get posted since Kain and Raziel have beat Ganon and Link.
    -
    So to make it different, Kain is restricted to LoK 2. And Link is in not twilight but the middle time line, which ever that is.

  7. Kitten Lord June 21, 2013 at 10:49 am -      #7

    Lok 2, do you mean blood omen 2?

  8. Kyuuketsuki June 21, 2013 at 10:56 am -      #8

    Yea thats it Blood Omen 2

  9. Z115 June 21, 2013 at 11:28 am -      #9

    Unless Link has any defense against being bloodraped, he’s kinda screwed.

  10. Kitten Lord June 21, 2013 at 11:35 am -      #10

    Coolio. Ok a few things concerning Blood omen 2 Kain;

    He is yet to have a true teleportation, he is not yet “evolved” so he does not necessarily have the killer regen known to evolved vamps of the soul reaver era (yet the reaver may balance this out). With CIS on, Kain is more prone to anger, maybe if Link gets enough hits in or wears him down, he will lose his cool. That could end good or badly for Link but its a factor.

    Things he has going for him;

    He still seems to have the power to TK blood, and later has basic TK enough to knock people over and turn mechanisms, I am doubtful he can actually pick someone up and fling them around where he likes yet though. But if Link is trying to break distance, take aim with a bow or w/e, a gesture and Kain could launch him, knock him over etc.

    He has superhuman strength, capable of holding up a fully armoured knight with one arm. The most common example is the one on the front of the BO manuel/game case but he can pick up the far heavier knights later in-game.

    He has pyrokinesis, capable of burning his foes with his mind. He takes this from Magnus who shatters large stone statues with it, Kain himself uses it only to burn his foes, its a one hit kill on all but the Sarafan lord. What Links fire resistance is like I don’t know.

    Mind control, I don’t think Link has any resistance to mental domination feats but I could be wrong depending on the Link.

    A great leap, this would be useful if Kain wanted to close distance. Kain leaping and striking with his sword could be a quick end if Links not defending himself.

    Finally, and certainly not least, Kain still wields the most powerful weapon in LoK during BO2, he does not know of/have the reaver emblems his Elder self is privy to but the power of soul eating and its magical impact is high. The reaver also has a killer regen.

    Indeed, the Dark chronicle is very useful. And then theres the respect thread I made which covers some of those powers;

    •Twilight Princess is categorized under the “middle timeline”, but the current one for that is Four Swords.
    •I’ve played several Zelda games, but this is one I’m not familiar with, so I’ll link to Zelda Wiki.
    •http://zeldawiki.org/Items_in_Four_Swords
    •Link of any incarnation tends to have a difficult time with other higher up tiers. Is he categorized as “street level”?
    •Hello again, Kitten Lord. I hope we bump into each other more often.

    This seems a bit…
    -
    Ugh…
    -
    Anyways, I’m not familiar with FSA link. I dunno if he has magical items or protection. What I do know though is that there will be four links.
    -
    None of which are resistant to getting their blood pulled from what I know. But I believe they’re independent so…

    Do with that what you will.

    “Hello again, Kitten Lord. I hope we bump into each other more often.”

    Heya, this thread could potentially be interesting depending on the link and what powers he is likely to use so ill probably be a constant presence in this thread until a verdict is made.

  16. Z115 June 21, 2013 at 3:44 pm -      #16

    From what I remember, Twilight Princess Link has no special resistance to fire, so Kain could simply burn him to death via pyrokinesis.

  17. Kyuuketsuki June 21, 2013 at 5:26 pm -      #17

    I was actually trying to get the strongest link, which is the one with the medallions or whatever right? Link to the past I think one.
    -
    Whats the “strongest” link?

  18. OriginalA June 21, 2013 at 7:24 pm -      #18

    “Whats the “strongest” link?”
    -
    Pure physical strength? Probably TP Link.
    -
    Lifting capacity? OoT/MM Link during OoT via Golden Gauntlets.
    -
    Ambiguous “firepower”? Probably LttP/Oracles/LA Link during LttP. He’s easily one of the hardest to kill, and he has a lot of options to bring the hurt.
    -
    WW/PH Link is also a major contented since he has a time stop power and impressive sword skill.
    -
    LoZ/AoL Link also has some fairly powerful spells, but not as versatile as LttP/Oracles/LA Link’s spells. Much shorter cast time though so there is a considerably smaller chance of being hit before he gets a spell off.
    -
    There’s a reason why the Link Incarnation Battle Royal match never concluded. A lot of these guys have powerful stuff. I think LttP/Oracles/LA Link has a few more options that are flat out better than most other Links though, and he has more options that most of them too.

    Thanks OA, then this is

    Also have to thank Hitman for posting.

  21. Z115 June 22, 2013 at 12:47 pm -      #21

    If Link has a fairy in each of his bottles, then doesn’t that give him four lives due to him being revived at death?

    -

    That, coupled with LttP Link’s raw magic power gives him a good chance of victory. Unless of course Kain repeatedly burns him to death before he can move (Not sure about AttP Link’s resistance to flame).

  22. Kitten Lord June 22, 2013 at 1:21 pm -      #22

    The burning may smash/kill the fairies as well.

  23. Z115 June 23, 2013 at 9:12 am -      #23

    And the Mirror Shield?

  24. Kitten Lord June 23, 2013 at 10:20 am -      #24

    I don’t know, doesn’t that just reflect magic projectiles that hit its surface and sunlight?

  25. Z115 June 23, 2013 at 8:14 pm -      #25

    Not sure. And it really depends on weather pyrokinesis is like a stream of flame, or more akin to instant fiery combustion.

  26. Kitten Lord June 23, 2013 at 8:17 pm -      #26

    Kains “immolate” is combustion, it does not fire a projectile, the target just heats up dramatically and burns to death. Hence why I am not sure the shield would help Link against it, he would need to protect his body magically I imagine towards heat.

  27. Z115 June 26, 2013 at 9:48 pm -      #27

    Link could always utilize the magic cape.

    •Contrary to popular belief, Magic Cape is not all that great. It lasts but a few seconds.

    I haven’t played LttP in a while…

    Is Kain evil? If so the master sword will cause him harm to come into contact with, which may help link if he needs to keep distance, although I don’t know anything about Kain except that he has a series named after him.

  31. Amm0vamp1r3 August 10, 2013 at 12:18 am -      #31

    He is not evil, he is neither good nor evil I believe he is the scion of balance so he is smack dab in the middle

  32. Marcel August 10, 2013 at 12:27 am -      #32

    “If Link has a fairy in each of his bottles, then doesn’t that give him four lives due to him being revived at death?”
    -
    Blue potion is much better. Full Health regained and full magic regained as well.
    -
    Cane of Byrna would be a very good item in Link’s favour, and more useful than the cape overall. However, the cape can be used in tandem with other magic items. Titan’s Mitt also greatly improves Link’s grappling strength, though nowhere close to the boost he gets in OoT via GG Gauntlets.

    “He is not evil, he is neither good nor evil I believe he is the scion of balance so he is smack dab in the middle”

    The sword should still do him some physical damage, even if it is greatly reduced.

  34. Amm0vamp1r3 August 10, 2013 at 12:30 am -      #34

    I think it would, I can tell you right now you’re going to get an ear full er…..eye full? from kitten lord on the matte though.

  35. StealthRanger August 10, 2013 at 12:33 am -      #35

    “from kitten lord on the matte though.”
    -
    *whisper* Class 100+ Hypersonic Kain, amm0 */whisper* Huh, what?
    -
    Although Link should be physically superior to Kain, and since Kain had his heart torn out by Raziel’s blunt claws, Link should be capable of harming him

  36. Amm0vamp1r3 August 10, 2013 at 12:35 am -      #36

    What was that? lol class 100?
    -
    But yea I think so too, Link should be strong enough to harm him

    -
    Nothing I haven’t been through before with others, and worse at that. All part of the territory, I guess. So Kain’s striking strength still looks greater that Link’s but Link MIGHT have a greater edge in grappling strength, and that is a big might. Either way, LttP Link has some magic stuff that can pack a punch from a distance, and I think this fight could end up being primarily fought from a distance in any event (as strange as that sounds, both combatants being swordsmen and all)

  38. StealthRanger August 10, 2013 at 12:52 am -      #38

    “lol class 100?”
    -
    Apparently the obelisk feat makes Raziel Class 100+ now and Kain since he’s stronger
    -
    “But yea I think so too, Link should be strong enough to harm him”
    -
    Nuh uh, Raziel’s claws have star core pressure and Kain tanks them! Dur

  39. Marcel August 10, 2013 at 1:02 am -      #39

    Steath, stop slaying me, man! I wasn’t meant to take class 100 laughter balls to the diaghragm
