Mega-Beast Death-Match 2012 - Round 3 - voting will close on Monday June 11th


Make sure to also vote on Facebook and Deviant Art if you have the chance.

---- - - -- <> -- - - ----- < - > ----- - - -- <> -- - - -------- - - -- <> -- - - ----- < - > ----- - - -- <> -- - - ----

Beast 1:
Siaflease
Nature: Siamese Cat / Fleas
Size: 4' (Long) 3.5' (Tall) (x6 - six to a pack)
Weight: 300 lbs (x6)
Calculating and vindictive, this pack of 6 siamese cat-fleas, the size of Labrador retrievers, pounce unobserved to deliver deadly bites via sawlike, serrated mandibles. Leaping bounds allow for hasty, silent traversal of battlefield. Covered in bony sclerites. Can attach to and remain hidden on larger enemies. Heat vision. Though the Siaflease can easily breach enemy lines, they are easily distracted by the sound of jingling keys. Pack behavior of questionable precision.

---- - - -- <> -- - - -----

Beast 2:
Flamingoliath
Nature: Flamingo
Size: 35' (Tall)
Weight: 6 Tons
An enormous bright pink flamingo. Can inflict massive damage with his heavy kicks. Extreme, neon pinkness causes disorientation and nausea. Carries over-sized, biblical weaponry (for show).

---- - - -- <> -- - - -----

Beast 3:
The Dreadnaughtilus
Nature: nautilus
Size: 32' (Long) 18' (Tall)
Weight: 2 tons
A gigantic chambered nautilus capable of achieving buoyancy in air by filling chambers with hydrogen. Armed and armored like the Dreadnought-class battleships of the early 20th century. If that wasn't bad enough, this beast was raised with the rabid imperialist mindset that defined the early 1900 European empires. Air torpedoes (so yeh, missiles) erupt from the end of its tentacled maw, with the range of hundreds of yards (though accuracy falls sharply). Missiles too risky to use at close range; goes big time boom boom if armored shell is compromised. Central exhaust valve in center of tentacles blasts scalding steam. Tentacles tipped with retractable bayonets.

I reckon this is fight between Siaflease and Dreadnaughtilus. Flaming Goliath doesn't get a look in (which pleases me greatly, as I have a grudge against the Big Bird impersonator). Both Flease and and Dread can take it out with not porblem. Drad from a safe distance through missles (and what warship worth its salt is going to miss and 35 foot high glowing pink target?), and Flease have about 200 square fot of feathery body to aim for and dig under the feathers to its skin. Strong kick? Does it matter to a creature who slams into the ground after a 200 foot leap as part of its momentum?

No, it's down to Flease and Dread, and I think that's going to require more thought on how that would play out.

I should vote for the weakest one, but I had to put aside future bout outcomes and settle with Dread. He's got in on the other 2 imo.

The Dreadnaughtilus is clearly power player in the this round!

Flamingoliath's bright plumage will only cause it to stand out and become an easy target for torpedo salvos. And its primary advantage: size is equaled by the Dreadnaughilus! With only melee attacks to rely on, the Flamingoliath will be forced to contend with those numerous piercing blades and steam cooker.

Against Siaflease, the Dreadnaughtilus is nigh invulnerable, Not only must they jump to reach its flying hulk, but it's armored exterior makes their small biting attacks almost entirely harmless. The only zone they could go after would be the opening with the tentacles, which might not be the best idea considering the hundred or so bayonets and "WOOSH!" of a steam blast.

Flamingoliath!

Dreadnaughtilus won't be able to focus on Flamingoliath because of the disorientation and nausea and so long-range missiles will miss their target. He'll just fly around, getting closer and closer, until he can land a few well-placed kicks in the shell and then Dread falls and cracks on the ground (even if he sustains some leg damage doing the kicking, he'd be alive). Flease also won't be able to land properly on Flamingoliath, being all dizzy and whatnot. Maybe he can use his shield to block or swat at some of them! That'd be pretty neat. But unless they can accurately locate and jump on something (that will be flying around) with their eyes closed, Flease will jump around, being sick and tiring themselves out if they go after Flamingoliath, eventually getting smooshed, or getting themselves killed if they go after Dread.

Though for reals, Dreadnaughtilus has the best name ever, and I almost voted for him because of that :mrgreen:

Siaflease!
I have a hard time seeing flamigoth winning this one, so I think it's between Siaflease and Dread. The jumping fleas are hard to see and hard to hit. And trying to hit 6 of them?? The fleas will start attaching themselves, and Dread can't do anything about it. The fleas are armored too, so up close battle will be a war of attrition. And given that there are six of the fleas, I see them winning.

Ever watched a pack of big cats take down an elephant? Or a water buffalo? Sure, one or two might get hurt, but the outcome is inevitable.

Okay, those had me laughing pretty hard. :D Now my cheeks are sore.

Actually, though, we have a nationally famous reserve here called Wolf Park. Maybe 10 minutes from here. They have a pack which lives and roams this huge area. Scientist work closely here. http://www.wolfpark.org

While it's a wolf hunt and not a Siamese/Flea hybrid, I think the concept is similar.

I need some more convincing Tom. This weekend could you hop over there, pair off six solves, and release a bull elephant into the park? A comcorder and Youtube would be enough.

From Australia? Are you kidding? Can't you just paint a bison grey or something?

Don't you feel any responsibility to let the scientists know, so they should cross-index their findings with Siamese/Flea hybrids? A cure for cancer may hinge on it, Tom!

Feel like Siaflease will go for Flamingoliath right away, as will the Dreadnaughtilus. The Flamingoliath may cause both others to become delirious, but because of "big boom boom" Dread's missiles take the other two out at once, game over.

Changed my vote to Siaflese, primarily because I think a Siaflese/Snaketopus bout will be much more interesting. Mutli-fleas going up against multi-snaketicles.

Eff yeah, who wouldn't pay to see that?
