Who would win in a cage fight and why?

Most obvious poll of the lot.

05-01-2013, 04:55 PM
Not obvious at all. I know you think it's Sabin, but the thing about cage matches is it's all about the money, and who's the money man? WHO'S THE MONEY MAN?

He's an Italian gambler. His trump card is LITERALLY A RED CARD.

Also, in the SNES & GBA versions... Fixed Dice + Offering. 39,996 damage. Get some.

The Money Man cant' do this:

Let's see him try that with an airship.

Sabin is motherfucking Sabin, that motherfucker.

05-02-2013, 02:43 AM
Rushin' bums.

The Train Suplex is just a glitch and wasn't supposed to happen.

Except Sabin's a god and he made it happen. The programmers can't even contain him!

05-03-2013, 04:15 PM
He can also shoot laser beams without magicite

05-03-2013, 05:24 PM
Yeah, well.
Yeah, well can he flip a coin and know which side it will land on? Can he!?

05-03-2013, 06:38 PM
Depends on the coin.

If we're going by the game then Locke is quicker and has to be the best. If you're going into story content, tone, aethetics, and other factors it could be anybody.

I'm assuming this is combat-based. Locke gets to act first.

05-04-2013, 09:39 AM
Whether or not he can suplex a train or if it was a glitch is irrelevant, because he sure as fuck can suplex a couple of lightweight airy fairy types like Setzer and Lock into oblivion.

To be blunt, anyone saying that a thief and a gambler could out-wrestle a wrestler in a wrestling match is just silly.

I don't know if this is necessarily as obvious as it seems at first glance. Locke could steal Sabin and Setzer's equipment, which could give him a pretty huge advantage. And Setzer might be able to pull off Joker Doom, which would end the others instantly.

That said, barring significant luck on the part of the others, I do agree that Sabin is the most likely to win this.

05-04-2013, 12:46 PM
Stealing Sabin's gear would be kind pointless. He could sill powerbomb them into the dirt.

The Man

Yes but let's also not forget that Locke can also equip the Atma Weapon, which is nothing to sneeze at. If he's at full health then he can one-hit KO the others, especially if he has Offering equipped. Also, if memory serves, Locke has a better speed stat than the others, which means he has a greater chance of getting off the first hit.

What I'm saying is it depends on a number of factors and it's not a clear-cut case of Sabin definitely being the winner.

Yes it is. Sabin wins.

If you want to ignore the existence of a smurfing lightsaber that only Locke can wield among these three, I guess it is

05-06-2013, 06:23 AM
Why is Setzer in the pretty boy round ? Shouldn't it be Edgar instead ? I prefer Setzer as a character; but Ed is more handsome.

Dunno, I guess I wanted to split the Figaro brothers apart.

I'd've replaced Sabin with Edgar, myself. He sure ain't no pretty boy.

05-06-2013, 05:53 PM
Merit Award. Everyone has a lightsaber now.

The Man
05-06-2013, 06:06 PM
who smurfing bothers using a merit award when you can put an Atma Weapon and an Illumina on Locke with Genji Glove and Offering

besides Locke still has the best speed stat

I put a Merit Award on Setzer because he looks snazzy in a Snow Muffler. :aimsun:

05-07-2013, 06:27 AM

I would take him and his brother. More Figaro for me then I guess. :jess:

They're twins...
You can't call one sexy and the other a donkey.

Flying Mullet
05-07-2013, 05:05 PM
What if you call one a sexy ass and the other a donkey?

05-07-2013, 05:57 PM
Then I would buy you a sammich.

While Setzer is my favorite of the bunch, mechanics-wise, Locke would assuming he has his best build. He's faster than both of these fuckers, and can use the Atma/Genji/Offering combo. You people forget that Blitz's most powerful attacks choose a random target so if Sabin Bum Rushed Setzer its all over. Also if this match was being played like the Coliseum rules. Sabin might accidentally use Mantra and just kill himself. :p

And the win goes to Sabin!
