“Who Would Win in a Fight?” Kefka vs Magus

Posted by J.C. Wigriff on April - 8 - 2012

Welcome to the all new weekly feature on www.JCWigriff.com called “Who Would Win in a Fight?”

In this weekly event, I will pit two contenders from the video game world against each other. I won’t decide the victor though – that is for you to do. I’m just the event promoter, outlining each warrior’s attributes and abilities. As Sgt. Friday would say on Dragnet, “Just the facts, ma’am.”

Tell me what you think. Back your contender up. Comment, argue, fight, and bicker. Nitpick over asinine discrepancies and minute details.

I will hold polls and votes on Facebook and Twitter for upcoming fights. Tell me what battles and characters you want to see.

So, without further ado…

Who Would Win in a Fight?


Ah, Kefka – everyone’s favorite Magitek infused, eccentric, nihilistic sociopath.

After killing Emperor Gestahl on the Floating Continent, Kefka awakens and captures the power of the Warring Triad – then knocks the statues out of alignment, triggering a global apocalypse. Ouch.

Kefka’s arsenal includes all of the upper echelon elementals, Meteor, Havoc Wing, HyperDrive, Vengance, and everybody’s favorite – Ultima.

Wielding the power of a god, Kefka is capable of creating massive destruction – but will the Light of Judgment save his cackling ass from…



In the Middle Ages, Magus brought the entire Kingdom of Guardia to its knees, in an effort to increase his already formidable power. Why did he crave more power? Because he was going to use it to summon Lavos, and single-handedly kick his ass.

He might have succeeded, had it not been for those meddling kids…

Protected by a powerful barrier that can only be broken by the legendary Masamune, he is nearly invulnerable when at the peak of his power. Even without the barrier, Magus has incredibly high physical defense, and shifting vulnerabilities.

Like Kefka, Magus is a master of elemental magic. He is also a master of darkness and shadow, wielding powerful spells like Dark Bomb, and his ultimate spell – Dark Matter.


So who’s it going to be – Kefka or Magus? You decide.

    Kefka easily. Why? Well, SPOILERS, but, he destroyed the entire world. The whole goddamn world. Magus didn’t do shit. He didn’t even stay a bad guy in some instances of the game.

      Magus wasn’t a bad guy, he was portrayed as a protagonist initially, but he was doing the actions he did to save the future from the destruction that is Lavos. However, I also grant the battle to Kefka. Kefka not only had the powers of many MANY summons, but also the power of the 3 goddesses. Magus was a mighty mage. However none the less, he is simply not a match for someone who singlehandidly captured and absorbed almost all summons and harness god-like powers…. Whilst dressed in what could be said to be a clown….
