It's time!  Oh it's time!  It's time for the first round of BASH WARS FIVEEVER~!  Thirty-one brave souls accepted the honor to win or die for your entertainment.  Two others were forced to battle it out for the final slot.  Now, at long last, all the questions will be answered, save one: Who will survive?

Let's kick things off with the East bracket on the tournament!


1. REX
THE WONDER DOG

(aardy)
VERSUS
16. DIOMEDES
THE CAT

(thatnickguy)

I can think of no more perfect summation of Bash Wars than this.  Cat versus dog.  The choice of a popular, formidable champion versus a totally random pick from out of nowhere.  Aardvark versus Guy.

Rex the Wonder Dog probably requires little introduction, being the star of his own 1950s comic book and a prominent feature on MightyGodKing.com.  The gist of the character is simply that he's a dog that can count, operate machinery, and fight everything from armed men to grizzly bears.  It's tough to imagine Rex losing any battle, so I have to say this is a pretty smart pick here.

Diomedes is, so far as I am aware, thatnickguy's cat.  That's, um, about it.  I don't know if this cat possesses any special powers beyond the normal cat powerset.  One known quantity is that cats have a critical weakness against dogs--wonder or otherwise--but this wouldn't be the first time we've seen a competitor completely in over his head snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. 



8. THE TENTH DOCTOR WHO
(meester_bond)
VERSUS
9. DANGER MOUSE
(calenturian)

One recurring theme in Bash Wars that was particularly frequent this year is people giving me special instructions.  It's not enough to say you want Skeletor, I guess, you have to make sure I point out that it's the Skeletor from the He-Man cartoon, that is to to say the 1983 version of the cartoon.  I'm pretty sure any version of Skeletor would perform the same in the unforgiving Bash Wars arena, but okay. 

Anyway, meester_bond made it clear that his champion is not just Doctor Who, but the version of Doctor Who played by David Tennant.  (Actually, he said "The Doctor" but screw that.)  I don't know why it matters because I was thinking Doctor Who always had the same powers.  Actually, I don't even know what Doctor Who's powers are.  I guess I should check.

...

OK, I got bored and gave up.  Basically Doctor Who has, like, telepathy and knows a lot of science-y stuff.  But he still needs to breathe and I presume he can die.  Well, I guess he dies all the time and comes back, but for the purposes of the tournament we will require his opponents to successively murder each of Doctor Who's reincarnations until he stops coming back.  It is a well known scientific fact that Doctor Who fans naively believe there is an upper limit to Doctor Who's reincarnations and that BBC would sooner cancel the show rather than violate this rule, so this should keep them happy.

Now, Danger Mouse I know a lot more about.  He's the greatest, he's fantastic, he's the ace, he's amazing, he's the strongest, he's the quickest, he's the best.  He's the greatest secret agent in the world.  He's a mouse who drives around in a kick-ass flying car and saves the world.  He has an eyepatch, which tells you right away that he once suffered a horrifying incident that destroyed his left eye and yet he's able to keep calm and carry on.  I don't know what Doctor Who can do to him that's any worse than that.  DM has no particular superhuman (supermurine?) abilities beyond being extraordinarily good at confronting and eliminating danger.  He's also brilliant and quick-witted, so I wouldn't put it past him to simply outwit Doctor Who with a clever bit of manipulation.  Certainly both characters are British television heroes, which should cancel out the advantages either would have against some random American.  It'll be interesting to see who comes out ahead here.




4. IRON MAN
(jonathan_7)
VERSUS
13. KARL MARX
(noiretblanc)


This is one of those match-ups that just fell into my lap.  We have here Iron Man, the quintessential capitalist, versus the father of communism, Karl Marx.  Their fundamentally differing philosophies play a key role in this fight.  Whereas Marx has prepared for this battle by writing manifestos urging the working class to rise up and overthrow the system, Tony Stark has accumulated personal wealth by pursuing his own interests and used these resources to develop a sophisticated battle armor capable of destroying an entire army.  Which strategy will win the day?  We'll soon find out.



5. BENDER
(maid_line)
VERSUS
12. SPIDER JERUSALEM
(oflittlefaith)

Another interesting clash of styles.  Bender (the self-proclaimed Superking) is of course the lovable alcohol-fueled bending machine from Futurama.  Spider is the renegade gonzo journalist meatbag from Transmetropolitan.  Both enjoy copious amounts of drugs and wandering around in the nude.  I suspect the edge in this fight will come down to the fact that Spider's primary abilities are to wear a shit-eating grin and swear a lot, and Bender is a nearly indestructible robot with the strength of a hundred men who wants to kill all humans.  It says here Spider once caused six politicians to commit suicide just talking to them over the phone, so I suspect his only true edge in this battle will be the possibility that he can talk Bender into self-termination.  Can he stay out of arm's reach long enough to do that?  I don't know, given Bender has those wacky extendible arms.



2. THE STAY-PUFT
MARSHMALLOW MAN

(cheapriboflavin)
VERSUS
15. CONKER
(zoline)


The Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man is an enormous manifestation of the evil Sumerian god Gozer the Destructor.  During the third reconcilation of the Mekertix supplicant, Gozer assumed the form of a giant Sloar! Many shubbs and zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day.  As Mr. Stay-Puft, however, the Destructor is easily a hundred feet tall, and is able to withstand a direct assault from multiple proton streams.

Conker is a squirrel holding a gun.



7. LOKI
(fintinobrien)
VERSUS
11. ADAM SAVAGE
(sachmet)

Here we go.  Myth against Mythbuster, god of mischief versus the mischief of man.  Adam Savage is probably not the toughest dog in this tournament, but I suspect he has some tricks up his sleeve and he could be this year's Cinderella.  But if he can't cobble together the machinery he needs to confirm he can kick Loki's ass, his dreams of wearing the Superking crown will die here.  Compounding Adam's dilemma is that he's doing this solo, so whatever he comes up with for the build is bound to be overdesigned and impractical without Jamie Hyneman to help him out.  However, Loki's primary advantage--sewing disorder and misdirecting his prey--will probably work better on the mighty Thor than someone like Adam whose mind is already chaotic and self-distracting.


3. MR. T
(mike_smith)
VERSUS
14. JACK DONAGHY
FROM 30 ROCK

(beraht)

Mister T returns to us from Bash Wars IV to make another attempt to win the coveted Superking crown.  Last year Mister T was having a good run until he ran afoul of Superman.  This year Superman's nowhere to be found so things are looking good for the noted pitier of fools.

His latest challenge is Jack Donaghy, the NBC Vice President from the series 30 Rock.  Although Donaghy has godlike control over the peons working for NBC today, he finds himself at a loss when confronted with one of the legendary figures of NBC's "Let's All Be There" era.  Admittedly, Donaghy should be grateful he's not dealing with Bill Cosby, but all things considered he'd be better off against KITT.




6. ANDY KAUFMAN
(kaufman316)
VERSUS
10. DARK WILLOW ROSENBURG
(seraangel)

Once again, I was given very specific details about Willow, making it clear this is the version of the character after Tara dies.  I don't really know what that means but I guess she's like, super-powerful.  Her eyes are all black so I guess that's not good.  Anyway, lots of people like Buffy so I figure Willow has a pretty good chance in this tournament.  Could she be the first-ever Superqueen?

Not if Andy Kaufman has anything to say about it.  Kaufman is a noted professional wrestler, and has a particular talent for besting women in the squared circle.  As you can see from his shirt, he is a women's wrestling champion.  By my calculations, there's only one woman in this year's tournament, so logically if she's going to beat anybody in this thing, she's going to have to beat Kaufman.  Why wait around, sez I.

Now, I should note that, although Willow has tremendous magical powers, presumably fueled by her indescribable rage, it is known that Mr. Kaufman is from Hollywood, which means he is rich enough to do what he wants and smart enough to outwrestle any mere woman.  I mean, I don't want to piss off Ms. Rosenburg, but that's what he was saying backstage.


OK, that'll do it for the East brackets.  Onto the West...!



6. ALTERNATE TIMELINE SPOCK
(redcoast)
VERSUS
10. WILLIAM SHATNER
(kateshort)

We saw the Mister Spock of the mirror universe last year in Bash Wars IV, but this time it's the Mister Spock of the alternate timeline from Star Trek XI.  Seems to me Spock is Spock, but maybe this is all a Sexiest Man Alive competition and I'm the last one to know.  Oh wait, no, it's a deathmatch tournament and Spock can bend solid hardonium with his bare hands.  So I'm pretty sure all that matters is any Spock is badass.

However, Spock has one weakness and it's Captain Kirk, the role made famous by William Shatner.  That's right, none of this Chris Pine shit, William Shatner.  It's a perfect case of old school vs. new school, and it's high time Shatner vents his frustrations about being shoved aside for nuTrek.  The new Spock has youth and alien powers on his side, but he was on the verge of tears every five minutes in his movie.  Meanwhile, I'm pretty sure Shatner is totally out of his mind and could try anything to kill his pointed-eared opponent.  All I know for sure about this one is that it won't be pretty.




3. NEO
(richardjohnson1)
VERSUS
14. STAINS
THE CUPCAKE DOG

(void_and_null)


I never heard of Stains the Cupcake Dog until now.  In short, he is a dog who stares at cupcakes.  I'm not sure what good that is in a fight, but all right.  At the very least, void_and_null has succeeded in scooping what was sure to be frito_kal's pick for Bash Wars VI.  I would observe that the main skill of a dog staring at cupcakes in a weird manner is an ability to make people go "...Whoa."

You know who that's going to affect the most?  Keanu Reeves, best known as Neo from the Matrix movies.   Yeah, I can see Neo having his mind completely blown by a dog staring at cupcakes.  I mean, yeah, otherwise Neo is a Christlike virtual-reality superman with the power to reshape the laws of physics, but if you distract him with Stains and his cupcakes he may not get out of the starting blocks.



7. PAU AMMA
(pauamma)
VERSUS
11. RONNIE JAMES DIO
(nathanpmahney)

Pau Amma is the King Crab of all Crabs from Rudyard Kipling's "The Crab that Played with the Sea."  Basically he was this gigantic crab who refused to take orders from the Eldest Magician and threatened to shake the foundations of the world until he was forced to shrink in size.  For the purposes of this tournament, I am envisioning him as the Giant Enemy Crab from Genji 2.  His advantages are clear--massive size and disregard for the laws of man and nature.  But he is easily outmaneuvered, and overreliant on his mighty shell to protect him from massive damage.

If anybody can defeat a giant enemy crab, I put my money on Ronnie James Dio, based entirely on his swordsmanship from the epic "Holy Diver" video.  He's swinging his broadsword all over the place, turning men into rats and so forth.  Can he teach this upstart crustacean respect for Man?



2. WOLVERINE
(mindset)
VERSUS
15. KEYBOARD CAT
(frito_kal)

OK, you know who Wolverine is and I'm pretty sure you know who Keyboard Cat is.  My analysis is Wolverine wins.  Keyboard Cat can't even overpower the guy holding him up to the keyboard, for pete's sake.  Let's face it, even frito_kal is going to vote for Wolverine here.


5. BEARSHARKTOPUS
(gollumgollum)
VERSUS
12. CROW T. ROBOT
(mzak117)

Bearsharktopus is the perfect combination of a bear, shark, and octopus.  He can chase you down on land like a bear, grab you tight like an octopus, and bite you in half like a shark.  Much like Stains the Cupcake Dog I'd never heard of him before, but I suspect he'll fare better in Bash Wars.  Something about being a massive killing machine or something.

However, Bearsharktopus would be typical fodder for a terrible Roger Corman monster movie, and that is the specialty of one Crow T. Robot, built on the Satellite of Love for the express purpose of enduring and deriding terrible movies and ridiculous movie monsters.  Crow's body is constructed from some sort of...well, it's shiny so I assume it's futuristic and durable.  He's survived freak hailstorms and partial digestion, so I would imagine he can handle whatever Bearsharktopus can throw at him.  But for how long?  And remember, in Bash Wars it's not enough to be able to live, you have to find a way to make your adversary die.  Is Crow really going to be able to deliver a killing blow against that thing?  It'll be fun to find out, at least.



4. DEVIL NED FLANDERS
(brandawg)
VERSUS
13. SPIKE SPIEGEL
(piratekingchris)

Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop is actually no stranger to this tournament, having competed four years ago in Bash Wars I.  He lost in the first round to...brandawg.  That loss had to be pretty embarrassing, so it's safe to say he's out for revenge.  Only trouble is, this year brandawg isn't entering himself, he's entering Ned Flanders as the Devil from that one Treehouse of Horror episode.  Flanders's total control of time, space, and reality makes him a serious threat, particularly for those combatants looking to obtain something.  Like, for example, say you're some guy whose cigarettes keep dangling at the edge of your lip, so before you can smoke them they fall out of your mouth.  I bet you'd sure need more cigarettes, right?  You'd probably do anything to get another cigarette.  Like maybe sell your soul?????



8. THE VAN HELSING PUPPET FROM FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL
(bigdaddycorn)
VERSUS
9. ERIC NORTHMAN
FROM TRUE BLOOD

(flamingtoilet)

This may be my favorite battle of the entire first round.  It took me a while to get why bigdaddycorn would enter somebody as obscure as some puppet from some movie I barely remember existing.  But then it hit me.  Van Helsing is famous for killing vampires.  A puppet Van Helsing would be good at killing puppet vampires!  Clearly this pick was tailor-made to counter the almighty threat of Bash Wars legend Count von Count.  It's a madly brilliant scheme, save for the fact Count declined to enter the tournament this year. 

In fact, there's only one vampire in this tournament to fight, and that's Eric Northman from HBO's True Blood.  I don't know jack crap about Northman except that he's a vampire and he looks like a dork with his fangs so close together.  But hey, he's a vampire and that counts for something, right?  I mean, Count's a vampire and he won Bash Wars twice.  So you can see the logic in selecting Northman as well.

There's only one course of action, then, and that's to see right away which of these two has the better formula for victory.  After all, if either of these guys can't even beat the other, what business do they have trying to beat anybody else?  If nothing else, this should be an interesting, if indirect, look at the secret to Count's success.  Is it the puppet or the vampire that makes the man?



1. POPEYE
THE SAILOR MAN

(inufan625)
VERSUS
16. THE JANITOR
FROM SCRUBS

(runenklinge)

Well, the results are in, and the Janitor from Scrubs totally clubbered Ari Gold from Entourage 23-7.   I guess janitors are just naturally stronger than whatever it is Ari Gold does.   Unfortunately winning the play-in game isn't much of a prize, since you immediately move on from fighting the weakest entrant in the tournament to the strongest. 

I've been waiting a long time for somebody to wise up and choose Popeye.  In many ways he epitomizes the fighting spirit that Bash Wars is all about.  He's not so about super powers as much as pure bare-knuckled toughness.  He's always getting into fights and he's always finding the way to win.  That's the name of the game, after all.  Now, it is true that Popeye needs tremendous amounts of spinach to maintain his success rate, but don't be fooled.  Even without spinach, Popeye is pretty damn tough.  Yeah, he gets beaten on by Bluto for most of the cartoon, but he takes that beating and comes back for more.  Bluto's never been able to put him away, and if he can't do it I don't see why anyone else can. 

A lot of people are claiming the Janitor from Scrubs kicks a lot of ass, but so far as I'm aware the only ass he has to kick is that scrawny little twerp from Scrubs.  Popeye is a frigging sailor in the United States Navy.  He fought in World War II, destroying whole battleships.  I don't say this to suggest Janitor has no chance.  I just mean to point out, for once the Janitor has to pick on somebody his own size.


All right, you've listened to me blather on, but in the end what I say doesn't mean a damn thing.  It's the votes that decide who lives and who dies.  Only sixteen of these thirty-two warriors will be back next week, so choose wisely.

Perhaps my earlier exclamation was unfounded. I thought it over and has Spock ever really lost a fight against Kirk? He's stronger, more intelligent, more emotionally stable, and also the more popular character. Anyway, he's not fighting Kirk, he's fighting Shatner. Who is 79 and overweight.

Meanwhile, Dark Willow flayed a guy alive for being a sexist douche. However, she can be defeated by the power of crayons! For future reference. (You don't have to throw them at her or anything, just bring them up around her.)

Sounds like "Dark Willow" (whatever parts of speech those words are) needs to do more dishes - she'd be happier and her kitchen would be clean for once.

And at the risk of sounding biased, Andy wrestled in excess of 500 matches against women WITHOUT LOSING A SINGLE FALL. It took Cancer of all things to knock him down, and I don't see Cancer anywhere in this tournament...

My initial inclination was to go with Tom Baker's Doctor, but screw it - I'm sticking with my "newer version of a character" approach that I applied with Heath Ledger's Joker last year. Besides, once again I'm appealing to a huge fandom.

Anyhow, my challenger is the one who constantly takes on the best and worst the universe has to offer and routinely kicks their arses no matter what time period he finds himself in. Really, this entire tournament is no different to the sort of situations the Doctor would find himself in in every episode. Basically, for Danger Mouse read "The Master", and we all know what happens to that adversary every time he faces the Doctor...

That said, my potential quarter final opponents look like real tough ones...

No, I don't! What the hell does he do? Does he punch guys? Does he tear open a hole in time? Does he fire pain lasers? What are Doctor Who's hand-to-hand combat tactics? I keep asking people and they don't know!

Totally agree with the Wolverine hate. As much as I love keyboard cat, I wasn't so much voting for him as I was voting against Wolverine. He's too damn omnipresent. And tenacious. And he has too many friggin' backstories.

Thirding the Wolverine hate. The movies have only made his character even worse, and it's no wonder since all of the movies have been Hugh Jackman Centralised and he's such a boring invincible hero that it's no wonder the X Men trilogy and the first Origins prequel get derogatively named the Wolverine Quadrilogy by sectors of the fanbase.

Although Loki is crafty, I don't know that I'd say he's good at "sewing disorder." Unless Adam is trying to use a gauge 8 needle on an old Singer model while trying to hem canvas for some ginormous build... in which case the explosion would kill both of them.

At least 13 of you people are crazy.

Popeye is the man and no way that the damn janitor from scrubs could beat him in a fight. I bet you all are just jealous and frightened by his level of self acceptance and confidence.

"I am what I am and that's all that I am"

And may I remind you that he's strong to the finish cause he eats his spinach. That scrubs hack could never compete with that.

And speaking of #1 seeds, I'm disappointed that the "Maimed And Killed" count is no longer over 50% in the Rex vs Diomedes fight, though I suppose there's still a week for people to see sense and give the Doctor a free ride into the quarters. Not that Tenth Doctor wouldn't massacre either Rex or Diomedes, but since Ten is going to win this whole thing anyway I figure we should just give him the opportunity to make Bash Wars history and skip straight ahead to the quarters where he'll get a real challenge.

Oh yeah, and as for Popeye, I think the thing is that no matter how much Jim whitewashes it, Popeye DOES spend most of his time getting beat up by Bluto. Yes, he still eventually beats Bluto, but then Hulk Hogan beat Andre the Giant and he still winded up losing to the Ultimate Warrior, Sting and the Rock and some other big names as well. Same with Popeye - he may get the fanfare from Hulking up and slamming Bluto, but eventually another big name comes along and shockingly defeats him. And Janitor is the second biggest comedic name on that comedy at least, and he's got the fanbase to back him up. This one's gonna be close, that's for sure.

WAH, why is Wolverine in a fighting tournament? He doesn't belong here! This is a place for stupid pictures of cats or TV janitors!

If Mr. T doesn't win, I'm throwing all my support behind Wolverine. Because he's friggin' Wolverine. Then maybe you people will learn not to enter obscure British pop culture figures or MMORPG characters.

Or the guy from 30 Rock. What, was John Travolta not available? It's a waste of time, but let's pretend this human speed bump matters and ask Mr. T what he thinks of his opponent.

"What kinda crazy sucka is this? Fool be talkin' bad about his kids. That ain't right. Why don't you come over here and say some of that to Mr. T? Ain't gonna beat Mr. T with none of that jibba-jabba. The 'T' don't stand for "talk". The 'T' stand for "time". And I'm gonna take my time slappin' around this sucka thinks he can step into the ring with the baddest man in the world. Dead meat."

And there you have it. Some guy from 30 Rock sucks, and will die an agonizing death.

I'm pretty screwed going up against a Simpsons' character, aren't I?

Not if it's 2002 and the community is full of weeaboo fangirls. It could happen.

It looks likely that my boy Dio and the giant crab will be Both Maimed and Killed. Which is totally metal, so I guess it's appropriate.

"Both Maimed and Killed" has to get at least 50% before it comes into play; it's been steadily dropping in that fight and is now down to 40%. So I wouldn't worry about it.

Incidentally, if Dio and Pau Amma are Both Maimed and Killed, Wolverine gets a bye and advances directly to the quarterfinals.

This video summarises everything that is wrong with the Wolverine character and movies. Please for the love of God do not have Wolverine end up winning this tournament!

So...you don't think Wolverine can beat up a cat because "I'm a Marvel/I'm a DC" is old meme?

Diomedes

Diomedes has astounding agility, unending endurance, a perchance for world domination and, most importantly, heat vision:

No feeble, flea bitten dog stands a chance.

Re: Diomedes

You're going with agility, endurance, world domination, and heat vision?Really?

Rex the Wonder Dog has been known to outrun a tornado, he regularly foils evildoer's plans for world domination, and he thinks extreme heat is a breeze.
