Do you remember back when you were a kid playing with action figures? If you were anything like me you loved to pit hero against hero (or villain against villain) and see which one would come out on top. With all the anime I’ve been watching on Viewster lately I’ve been thinking, what would happen if some kind of trans-dimensional rift occured and we had heroes from various series going against each other? Thus a new feature was born.
In this feature I will be pitting character against character and asking you, our loyal readers, your opinion on who would come out on top in a battle to the death. In this first edition, we will be pitting Archer (Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works]) vs. Alucard (Hellsing).
Now, on paper this seems like a pretty easy victory for Archer. He’s got speed, he’s got strength, he can attack from a great distance… easy win right? Don’t be so sure about that. Alucard might not have all the same powers that Archer has but he has some pretty big guns of his own to pull out (both literally and figuratively) and can take a pretty huge amount of damage without batting an eye.
Alucard is strong in his own right as well. He’s lived a long time and has seen many enemies try to take him down so he’s not going to fall for cheap tricks. If Archer stands any chance at all of taking him down he’s going to have to do some serious damage after getting up close and personal.
In the end though, after a long and drawn out battle I believe in my heart of hearts that Archer would come out victorious and have his hand held high.
