Who Would Win Wednesdays: Morrigan vs. Bayonetta
Posted by Robert Ramsey
Push Square staff watched in horror during last week's Who Would Win Wednesdays as Wei Shen spin-kicked favourite Kazuma Kiryu right around the chops. As such, we thought that it would be best to step away from the testosterone of sweaty men and put forward a duel between two female characters. As always, we'll provide you with information on each combatant's abilities and background, and then let you duke it out in our poll. Let the bloodbath begin. Again.
One of Dragon Age: Origins' most popular party members, no-nonsense witch Morrigan is an incredibly reliable team mate thanks to her ability to master multiple magical disciplines. From transforming into a giant, flesh-eating spider to manipulating nature and the elements, Morrigan can handle just about any opponent that dares cross her. Not only that, but she grew up in a deadly, rather ugly swamp where she hunted and scared both bandits and travellers just to keep herself amused as a child. While she may not have played a part in the divisive Dragon Age II, it's looking like she'll have an important role in the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition – but given her mysterious motives and strong will, whether she'll end up as a friend or a foe is anyone's guess. You'll probably want her as an ally, though.
Making enemies out of angels and non-Nintendo gamers alike, there's no doubt that Bayonetta is a divisive character, but there's little room for hate when she's able to make slaughter look so stylish. Her frankly insane initial adventure saw the Umbra Witch tackle adversaries of all shapes and sizes as she sought to uncover her past. However, unlike most confused and forgetful protagonists, this agile fighter certainly didn't go all moody and melodramatic. Instead, she used four handguns – of which two slot into her shoes – to riddle her enemies with magic-infused bullets. As such, ridiculous combos come naturally to the slender warrior, especially when she's using her own hair as a conduit to summon demons capable of dealing tremendous amounts of damage to all who oppose her.
In this battle of wit and witches, who would seize victory? Would Morrigan's unique fashion sense get under Bayonetta's skin? Vote for your winner in our poll, and tell us how you think the battle would unfold in the comments section below.
