Griffintaur Combat and Pride Embodied

I'm bored and have been itching for a fight recently. Can someone be awesome and face off against my marvelous bird cat? It doesn't even have to be one on one. Characters can gang up on him if so desired. Any and all challenges ore obliged and welcomed.

I'll be willing to rewrite my character sheets for this.

The more the merrier. There's plenty of Griffintaur to go around.

I'll have a go, but it'll be a few days before I'm ready. Been busy with work and friends, and I need to make some modifications to Slimy's (The Magna Pater's) CS.

Griffy seems to share many of Slimy's traits and stats, such as sonic attacks, high intelligence, flexibility, very similar land speeds (Slimy's record is 90 mph), among other powerful animalistic abilities.

It'd be a true battle of the beasts. I just need to finish polishing Slimy's profile until I feel content with the flow and jibe, and everything clicks firmly together. Right now there are irregularities and vague shit I need to iron out, and changes I want made to appearance.

In the mean time, got a fighting location in mind?

your bird creatures CS is way to vague, also, anything that can react "instantly" is basically not allowed in most arena, its way to easy to godmode that shit.

That sounds like a rather fun matchup. Perhaps a true test of this new creation of mine. As for location. I'm lazy and all about simplicity. Perhaps a simple arena, gladiator style. 2 beasts taken captive and forced to fight for their lives. Not that bird kitten would totally be getting off at the idea. But yeah. I'm down. Lemme know what you think.

I've recently discovered the tiering system of the VS Battle Wiki. It seems in base form, he's between building and multi-block level. So he doesn't seem so OP to me. Also, you neglect to mention I state "Nigh instantaneously" then further went on to say that just because his brain can react, doesn't mean his big ass body can move in time. It seems people think this character is way more OP than he really is, and it's always so humorous.

Free power buffs, apparent near instantaneous reaction time, heightened durability, apparent psychic powers, they think that because he is, the damage and actual speed is also not a set number which makes it vague.

I may be wrong, read it when I was sleepy, but if I recall correctly Griffintaur has a base speed of 100 mph that can be amped by a fifth of the base with every 'reserve'. I believe it either takes or lasts five minutes, either way that's a long time considering how many fights resolve in mere seconds. At worst you'd likely be looking at a 140 mph enemy with the pride buff stacked, unless you decided to be silly and grant him more time to power up.

It's basically a way of pressuring opponents into going on the offensive. I don't believe in 'overpowered' characters, only bad matchups and poorly defined tournaments. Any character can be 'overpowered' if you put them up against a sufficiently weaker opponent.

It's kinda difficult to give specifics on damage. The most I can do is say light, moderate, etc. Other people's characters have differing resistances and inconsistencies are inevitable. Besides, all he does is punch people for the most part. Not like it's that complicated. It seems he's just too resourceful. Besides, it's not like all that he has doesn't make sense. I mean, the psionics might be a bit much, but they're there too emphasize his mental strength.

Doc is right though regarding OPness. 5 minutes is a bit extensive, but I've never exceeded 10 Reserves in an RP. The ludicrous amounts he can reach are more for my personal stories or if an opponent allows such.

To add to the debate, it's all about responsibility and respect for characters. Sure Tharr can be perceived as too powerful and would be bland in a story environment. But with proper characterization, I can compellingly give him struggle and conflict despite his great power and apparent perfection.

Also, Doc, what'd be the status of that character of yours? This discussion has me a bit more pumped to fuck shit up.

Edit

Final afterthought conceived. It's about entertainment. I believe he's reasonably overpowered and grossly resourceful. Almost harboring power of a big bad, but preferring neutrality and discontent with anything but his own. Having something like that can provide some fun times if given chance to grow. Having extra muscle to throw around is never a bad thing, either.

Warning; the Magna Pater's profile is quite a lengthy read. Might want to make sure you find a comfy chair and don't skim the details. I want to make sure you understand how all of its abilities work.

In short, its fighting style is that of an ambush predator whose powers are centered around taking advantage of the five senses. It simultaneously uses its own senses to relentlessly hound opponents through virtually any obstacles whilst attacking their own senses to disorientate them and mask its presence. If any part seems too strong for the match up, just say so and I'll nerf it for our fight!

I've successfully read through the Magna Pater. Definitely quite the matchup that should be interesting. I don't see anything to nerf, so I'm down to get the battle set up. This particular character makes me wanna fight him in a misty, nighttime swamp. Give it that horror vibe, I think. Since my bird cat would likely start this bout being preyed upon, who'd get beginning post. I'm not the best at them, but I could make something worthwhile if I get off my lazy ass.

Actually, I'll have it up in several more hours. Computer is screwed up and it's a pain typing on my phone.
