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.
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.
