Reasons Shadow will win: Fang uses corks, Shadow uses actual bullets, He dosen't even need the gun, If fang does use the actual gun, (which he won't), Shadow is fast enough to dodge the bullets, & in the opening movie of the shadow the hedgehog game, before he even glows red, the bullets are bounceing off him(lol he pulls a superman). One punch & fang would be dead, he's that strong, he has the power of chaos which grows with every chaos emerald he has, Fang can't use the emeralds. Shadow even says; The power of these emeralds makes me invincible. & in Sonic games Spin attack>bullets.
YES, I LIKE FANG TOO!! But I'm just being realistic.
I pick Shadow because he has the speed to dodge any bullet shot, plus he has the Chaos Control ability. I'm not just saying that because I am a Shadow fangirl you know. I don't know much about Fang, but he does seem to be a good fighter as well.
Still, Shadow has amazing abilities that can outrun ANY fighter. Even though Espio and him are almost evenly matched in terms of speed.
GO SHADOW! I can't wait to read more of your wonderful stories.
Shadow, Even though Fang is more experienced with the gun, Shadow is much faster and he has his Chaos abilities. But Fang could Bounce away using his uber flexiable tail. So I think Shadow would win by a really small margin.
I have to say that this is a tough decision. I think either opponent has a high chance of winning, based on battle scheme and whatnot. Fang has guns, but now so does Shadow! So if it were a gunfight it would prove to be interesting. Fang I suppose would have the upper hand if it were solely based on gunmanship, seeing as how he's far more experienced. Hand to hand combat, I'd have to think Shadow would win. Be it that his powers are more or less stunted without the aid of a chaos emerald, he's still quite experienced with most forms of combat, based on what was presented of him in Sonic Adventure 2 Battle--plus he has fast reflexes and is able to react quickly to oncoming obstacles and things of the likes. All in all the brawl will definitely be something to behold! Can't wait to see it. *waves a little flag with Shadow's face on it*
Well, Darkspeeds, I'd be obliged to submit my support for Nack the Weasel (or Fang, as you've decided to call him).
Whilst I sense that Shadow is inevitably going to triumph (it would render the sub-plot of Shadow receiving instruction from Espio's master somewhat redundant and purposeless if he was knocked out in the first round! ), in a straight confrontation Nack actually enjoys quite a substantial amount of proficiency which gives him the advantage. Whilst Shadow has developed an affinity for firepower, Nack is someone who's entire combat doctrine is oriented about firearms and so he can be expected to exercise much superior skill at ranged combat than Shadow, to whom pistols and other armaments are just a supplementary ability. Of course, Shadow's superior agility might balance out, but Nack has a keen eye and a steady arm - I might be so bold as to describe him as the "Revolver Ocelot" of Sonic the Hedgehog - and it only requires one well-placed shot to render Shadow completely unstuck.
Furthermore, we mustn't forget that Nack the Weasel is vermin, and thus thus fighting honourably isn't exactly at the top of his agenda. His character is punctuated with low animal cunning and deviousness - he is someone who positively revels in defying the rules and would punch below the belt at the first opportunity if he saw that he could gain some advantage from it. As such, he isn't above playing dirty - he would tool himself up with all variety of concealed weapons to give him the edge before he entered the ring, and would be quite adept at feigning injury and all else to lull Shadow into a false sense of security so that an opening would emerge for Nack to land the sneaky killer blow. In the Fleetway Sonic the Comic, Nack was tooled up with more accessories than a Swiss Army Knife, and would double-cross his 'allies' at the drop of a hat. By complete contrast, all Shadow has to rely upon is the choking, suffocating aura of his TEEN AAAAANNNNGGGSSSTTTT - although that is admittedly a fearsome force in and of itself.
Well, there are my thoughts on the matter, anyway. Keep up the great work with Picnic Heaven, Darkspeeds!
ALRIGHT! LOGICAL explanation time. *Puts on her glasses and graduate hat though she's only a Junior in highschool*
Okay, I voted for Shadow. DON'T JUDGE ME YET. *Cowers* Well, the reason I voted for Shadow was this: I think that he's just more serious about this tournamant than Fang. Fang is just too big headed, egotistical ( Though Shadow is too, kinda.), and cocky. Shadow's more laid back and calm. Also, Shadow has more powers and abilities than Fang. Fang only seems to have his guns for all I know while Shadow has his Chaos abilities and super speed.
Though it WOULD be nice to see Fang win one I have to be reasonable. Shadow's just more powerful than the little guy. Which is a shame, because I like them both. D: This was a HARD decision, Darky. >< But I have to go with my sweet Shadow. *Pinches his cheek*
*Gives Fang a huge cake coz he's still awesome, too*
Sorry, but if Shadow has a Chaos Emerald in his hands, he can take on whoever he wants and win.
... unless... suppose Fang had a missile launcher and a Chaos energy shield...
...or is it a gunfight? If they can only use guns, Fang would win without breaking a sweat.
Lesee... Hmm... *votes* I voted for Fang! (if I didn't, my brother would kill me XD) But I'm pretty sure Shadow will win... He's got loads of people rooting for him. Not only that, but he's been training to take on Espio... That makes votes too...
Fang: *crouched near a corner* Nobody likes me....
XD I think this'll be a great chance to develop Fang's character, no doubt... Even if he doesn't win!
LOL! XD You chose him too sweety? = ) ^^ Well due to the media overexposure of Shadow the chances of Fang winning are rather slim. But I'm still impressed by the amount of support he got regardless of those circumstances! = ) I'm going to do something about that in the comic. ^^
*Shadow points to Fang shouting - "Eat my desparado attack - Fan-girls ahooy!! >= O"
Fang - >= (.... /= (.... (= o... <= O.... O.O......" *SPLAT - hundreds of fangirls form a mob and running forwards like a big wave from the sea - Poor Fang getting trampled... Fang: "Ow! HEY! Not my head! Ouch! Will you watch where you're... Gargh! Oh god no not there! ...... ow..... "*
XXXXD = 3
*evil grin from Elson and eyes shining...
Fang: "Er... Is Darkspeeds really going to use that...?"
Shadow: "I hope not... I don't want to embarass myself using a move like that!*
Both Shadow and Nack/Fang have and equal chance at winning, Shadow having his Chaos powers and Nack/Fang being skilled with guns (well so is Shadow). I feel that Shadow has alot more swiftness though and tactical advantages but Nack/Fang will have a few things up his sleeves. It's really hard to say for certain but I voted for Shadow.
Well I'm not surprised by who's winning by 30 votes against the other by this comment. =/ Damn his sexy badassness!
Anyway, I'm quite surprised by the number of votes so far though. o.o You have a lot of fans, Elson! XD
Anyway, Shadow's obviously going to win, for numerous reasons I suspect. =/ One, his general overall popularity even though his design is hardly original and he's all "ANGST'D!" and stuff, but yeah. o.o He's also a bit of a no-brainer for the story potential that he's got going. >>
But I waaaaaaaaaaaaaaant Fang/Nack to win. If only because Shadow's way overrated. Where's the loving for Fang, hmmmmmmmm? ;_;
So true... So true... XD X3 ^^ But yeah you got my support on having Fang winning this match! = ) I would be most interested in knowing how it will turn out to be if Fang progressed towards the finals. = ) Even if Shadow lost I would still ty to come up with this off-tournament/personal match between Shadow and Espio! XXD
What me? Got a lot of fans? LOL! XXD Nah not really! ^_^;; I'm really grateful to know that there are people out there who try to support my works and ideas. = )
Alrighty! It's time to get things movin'! I'll start drawing out the next Picnic Heaven right now! ^_~
