Battles » Who can stand against "D"?

@FormerCrimsonKing: I don't remember because it's somehow rare to "see" D getting hurt.
Although I believe he can't handle being blow to bits.

Hikari to Yami. There are a number of good Umineko musics that I prefer over FSN's OST butthe one above isn't one of them. In comparison Hikair no Yami is amongst my favorites.

Next:


 

Blazblue Crisis Reversed - The Pupeteer:

  
  
 
  V.S.

Blazblue Continuum Shift Extended - Plastic Night:


  
  
Both are themes for the same character.

Battles » Who can stand against "D"?

@FormerCrimsonKing: Nah,D's still lacking in terms of movement speed.
He's another testament of anti-hax and has the powers of the Left Hand but for one D lacks the durability to take Kyo's raw attack power. He would be caught with either Seiryu  or Byakko. Suzaku cannot be imprisoned or absorbed either.
Perhaps, D has some broken moves at close range. So if it ever comes down to close quarters combat then D has a better chance to win. It's especially true since in the later novels D can casually do dimensional slashes...something which Kyo has no protection against.

@ReiKai: When did D deflect a laser?
All I know his insane throwing feat and the time he intercepted a lightning strike.

Battles » Who can stand against "D"?

 Demon Eyes Kyo
 Demon Eyes Kyo

He's several times faster than Chinmei who casually dodged lightning. Kyo also casually tanked flames in the excess of 10,000 degrees or a multi city block level blast. Via powerscaling he should be multi city block level in destructive capacity and likely can survive being frozzen down to absolute zero. As for techniques he has Suzaku which is an attack which homes on target, coming back even faster every time it was dodged. In addition Suzaku cannot be stopped, it can escape blackholes or any attempt made to immobilize it. Even if it's "killed" Suzaku returns even stronger. Aside from Suzaku he has Byakko which - if dodged - ensares the opponent in a barrier of wind and pulls in the enemy for Kyo's next attack. There's also Seiryu which attacks the enemy from all directions and traps them in a wind barrier, free for Kyo to strike them down. Kyo also has Genbu which is a shield which after blocking the enemy's attack traps the opponent in a barrier of wind, so strong it distorts space and generates an alternate dimension. Kyo can use all four of these attacks in rapid succession, even summoning all four spirits at once. His strongest attack is Koryou which descends like a pilar of light and generates a deep crater similar to a meteor impact. Kyo can cast as many as 3 of these at once while he also summons the 4 spirits of Suzaku, Byakko, Seiryuu and Genbu.
 
In short Kyo's pretty strong. He may not be as hax as D but makes up for that by sheer power and technique.

Off-Topic » I Hate This!

Like others were saying the protagonist siding with humans despite being of a different race is cliche and usually represents a role model like moral standpoint.
 
Still, the protagonist usually has a certain background which can explain it. Let's break it into several common cliches:
- Being parented by humans: The protagonist grew up with human parents. He was treated like human and learned human morals. As such he cannot tolerate the behavior of his original race.
- Being just recently aware of being from another race: That's another classic route. The protagonist suddenly finds out hes a demon, vampire or whatever. Obviously, since he lived his life as a human he is still going to side with the humans. Unless something forces him to switch sides. But that's something your generic shonen would never explore on.
-  Being turned into the member of another race: The more extreme version of the previous cliche. The protagonist struggles to keep his former humanity. As such him siding with the human race is pretty much evident. Again, things can turn out worse but the protagonist is usually an exception.
- Dramatic experiences with humans: The protagonist was previously fighting against the humans but a certain incident made him change his ways.This kind of setting usually happens if the humans are showcased in a far more positive light compared to this certain race. The protagonist's race is usually something very evil in origin.
- Being born different: The protagonist is just plain weird and chose to side with the humans. This is one hell of a handwaving but surprisingly there are a few good fictions based on it. More often than not the protagonist didn't explicitly chose a side and intends to take the role of mediator. But of course his race (which is likely evil) is generally more aggressive. Worse, his race probably excommunicated the protagonist for his "treacherous" actions.
 
There are more scenarios but the above mentioned 5 are the usual cliches. They all make sense in context. Of course there's always a chance that such character would break and eventually switch sides. But it's pretty rare for the protagonists to do that. Why? Either because the authors are lazy or because the plot is just simply not dark and gritty enough for such scenario. Being a demon is a good way to handwave the protagonist's superhuman powers. In addition it can add some chance for drama. But authors usually don't care to touch too hard on it.

Otherwise, sure. I want Leberus to fight Mr. White for example.:p

@Asune: Actually two of these acconts were reserved for teams (Assotiation, Company). It's a Vice custom to create a new profile for each RPG team.
Although I admit that I have more than 10 accounts reserved for RP characters.:p

Battles » Kotomine Kirei vs Alexander Anderson

@Fehafare: Yeah, there are a few Easter Eggs which shows the relation between Tsukihime and FSN. One such example is Kirei's quote:
"Although my skills aren't at the level of the Seventh but I was one of the Church's Executors."
Seventh referring to the Seventh of the Burial Agency AKA Ciel.

Battles » Kotomine Kirei vs Alexander Anderson

@Asune: Are you sure? I don't remember Kirei ever pinning people by their shadows.
Well, he DID pin Assassin to the three but that had more to do with physical restriction than actual magic.
Like Kirei admitted he isn't at the level of Ciel. We can't assume Kirei can do the same things with the Black Keys like Ciel did.

Battles » Kotomine Kirei vs Alexander Anderson

@Dream: It's based on that Black Keys deal conceptual damage.
Although apparently strong spiritual beings like Servants can nullify the curse. Unfortunately Anderson doesn't have any such resistance or the ability to defeat a curse he's completely unfamiliar with.

Battles » Kotomine Kirei vs Alexander Anderson

Alright, quoting myself from the other thread:
@willyvereb said:
Even if Anderson has the Nail, Kotomine's black keys can negate regeneration. Anyways, Anderson has the advantage of firepower while Kirei has the advantage of skill and physical strength. In his last bout against Kiritsugu his punches were as strong as a grenade explosion. By burning up 10 of his Command Spells at once Kirei can also temporally gain the stats of a Servant. Even without the Command Spell boost, Kirei can easily disappear from sight and deflect supersonic daggers. With slight boost he became a supersonic+ combatant himself and bitchslapped rifle bullets. In terms of ranged attacks, Anderson's bayonets and Kotomine's black keys are roughly the same. They can both throw them with inhuman accuracy and en-masse. Although Anderson can spam more bayonets and for longer than Kirei, thanks to his 4th dimensional skill. On the other hand Kirei can cast illusions to confuse the enemy and ensure that his black keys would hit for certain. Unfortunately, Kirei can't pin opponents by their shadow. Neither use the sacraments like Ciel did.  I say this is a pretty close fight but Kirei may have a slight edge.

@Fehafare said:

@Nevermind: Wait how doesn't dodging 20k lighting say something about your movement speed?

Because she had to move fast enough to avoid those lightning bolts. Not to mention that IIRC they came at relatively the exact same time, all the 20k bolts.

@Fehafare: I believe you chose one of the best pieces to start out.
FSN is a great VN if you can stomach the tons and TONS of infodumping the author pulls your through. Good luck!

Battles » Shiki Ryougi (Kara no Kyoukai) vs Lust (FMA)

Ryougi blitzed Araya Souren, someone who was outright stated to be a bullet timer. She can also throw her knife at speed comparable to bullets to sewer the lines of death from distance.
She kills Lust with ease, actually.

Jack has better destructive feats and their speed is slightly superior to Afro. I say he wins.
Being on a longer-running TV series does make wonders in terms of feats.
