Who Would Win Wednesdays: Dante vs. Kratos
Posted by Robert Ramsey
Well, well, well, if it isn't another round of Who Would Win Wednesdays. Time flies when you're busy imagining fictional video game characters kicking the stuffing out of each other, as proven by the fact that the mighty brawl between Lu Bu and Ezio Auditore da Firenze took place a whole week ago. Everyone's favourite cunning Italian Assassin came out on top in our last showdown, but which famous warrior will whip up the most votes this time around? Take a look at the handy chunks of information regarding each combatant that we've provided below, and then get ready to duke it out in our poll. Let the battle commence.
With or without his silvery locks, Dante is one hell of a tough customer – but for the sake of avoiding internal conflict, we should make it clear that this particular match-up has the traditional character in mind. Having faced off against countless demons and other undesirables, this horror-hunter-for-hire has bundles of experience and bucket loads of skill to back up his eternally cocky attitude. He can juggle enemies like your favourite Tekken character with his trademark dual pistols, cut foes to ribbons with the broadsword Rebellion, and can even shred opponents to pieces with a demonic electric guitar. As if his offensive prowess wasn't enough, he's also terribly resistant to being skewered right through the chest, as one of Devil May Cry 4's first cutscenes testifies.
Experienced in both utter despair and total destruction, God of War's Kratos is easily one of the most fearsome fighters to ever grace a Sony console. Whether he's laying waste to Titans or ripping the heads off Greek Gods, this Spartan warrior's fury knows no bounds, and he has all the necessary skills to make his rage a reality. Wielding the iconic Blades of Athena, gaming's angriest man-God is often an unstoppable whirlwind of might, blending whole armies into a fine red paste. When he's not spinning around like a psychotic ballerina, he's making use of numerous legendary weapons like the weighty Blade of Artemis, and to top it off, the bald betrayer also likes blasting foes to bits with various magical abilities, which makes him a threat from almost any range.
In this battle of rather epic proportions, who would come away in one piece? Would bald man Kratos envy Dante's swell hairdo? Vote for your winner in our poll, and tell us how you think that the battle would unfold in the comments section below.
