This battle features one fighter, the Tasmanian Devil, who is a physical monster. The other fighter, Tommy Vercetti from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, is a psychological monster. Tommy is a vicious criminal who is among the most depraved individuals in modern society. He’s got his hands in most criminal activities, ranging from drugs to guns to prostitution. Despite having the potential to live in luxury, though, he’s such a sociopath that he’s always getting his hands dirty by going for the up close and personal kill. Taz just wants to feed his insatiable appetite. Tommy wants to kill everything that moves.
The Tasmanian Devil qualifies for this section for besting Animal back in the day. He’s a cartoon icon who eats anything and everything, much like the real-life species he’s based on. He’ll be facing off against an entire army in this one, as Willy Wonka’s Oompa Loompas take him on. The Oompa Loompas have previously defeated the Munchkins. Can they stop the Tasmanian Devil, or will Taz turn this fight into a slaughter of epic proportions?
We have two newcomers to the page in this fight. In one corner is Bugs Bunny, arguably one of the greatest cartoon characters of all time. He’s a fast-talking Brooklyn-born rabbit with a love for carrots and a tendency to cross-dress when it suits his needs. In the other corner is the Trix Rabbit, who um…really likes Trix cereal. I don’t know how he got a taste for the cereal, since he never gets to eat it. Maybe Trix represents some sort of forbidden fruit to him. Or maybe the cereal is coated with crack. I think I’m going to run with the crack addict angle.
It’s been a long time, so I don’t remember why exactly I thought these two should fight. Maybe I bumped my head, maybe I was kidnapped by ex-KGB officials and drugged, I dunno. One explanation is just as good as the other. Either way, this is the part of the fight where I usually introduce the combatants. Well, I hate to break with tradition, so I guess I’d better get to it right now. Mario is the world’s most marketable video game character. Beginning in the early 1980s with Donkey Kong, he’s sold everything from the Super Mario Brothers games to golf sims. He’s been a carpenter, a plumber, a golfer, a doctor, an adventurer, and many others. The Tasmanian Devil, known affectionately by his sometimes victims as Taz, has led a much simpler life. He eats, spins around, and eats again. He’s loosely based upon the carnivorous species that serves as his namesake. Apparently Hollywood is trying to save that species. How noble they can be when their marketing tools are on the line…
The most rabid puppet of all time, Animal made his claim to fame on The Muppet Show as the band’s drummer. He is driven by a love for music and what must be about two tons of crack. The most rabid cartoon character of all time, Taz is driven almost purely on his stomach. I refuse to accept the existence of his dumbass TV show that appeared in the mid 90s mainly because it was stupid and did not do the character justice. He’s driven by eating people who are probably loaded up on crack.
