The Tasmanian Devil versus Tommy Vercetti

Posted in In This Corner with tags , , , on February 8, 2011 by Charlie Brooks

They're both monsters, but one happens to look good in a suit.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 versus the Oompa Loompas

That's a lot of potential food for Taz.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?

Mario versus the Tasmanian Devil

Posted in In This Corner with tags , , , on January 24, 2011 by Charlie Brooks

Natural enemies...a plumber and ah, um, cartoon animal...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…

Animal versus the Tasmanian Devil

Posted in In This Corner with tags , , , on January 18, 2011 by Charlie Brooks

Better watch it...these guys might just kill us all.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.
