Wednesday sure comes around fast, doesn't it? It only feels like yesterday that stern ninja Ryu Hayabusa was busy beating the daylights out of crazy ol' Yoshimitsu, but now that we're about halfway through a whole new week, it's once again time to ask the eternal question: who do you think would win this Wednesday? As always, we'll provide you with the necessary information on two of PlayStation's colourful characters, before letting you decide who would emerge victorious from a savage duel. Here we go again.
Often hailed as ancient China's greatest warrior, Lu Bu was supposedly like a demon on the battlefield, and the same is true in Koei's Dynasty Warriors series. Within the divisive hack-and-slash franchise, this mighty fighter usually wields a huge halberd, and has a penchant for stomping around in elaborate but intimidating armour. Complete with a snarling voice and an extreme lust for combat, Lu Bu is an opponent to be feared, especially since the overpowered brute tends to grind your own character into dust if you choose to stand and fight, rather than run away. That's not all, however, as the rampaging fiend also makes use of the super-speedy legendary warhorse Red Hare, which only serves to make this giant of a man that much more imposing as he gallops into enemy lines and lays waste to thousands of soldiers.
Ezio Auditore da Firenze
A cocky, reckless, but incredibly skilled Assassin in his youth, and a composed, wise, and staggeringly deadly leader in his later years, Ezio Auditore da Firenze lived a rather interesting life. First appearing in Assassin's Creed II, it wasn't long before he was jumping across rooftops and taking on armed guards while wielding only a small hidden blade. While his accomplishments may be kept quiet in the pages of history, this unstoppable Italian's prowess in battle is plain to see. A master with swords, axes, daggers, throwing knives, crossbows, and even bombs, the popular killer is equipped to handle almost any situation. Not only that, but he is also more than capable of silencing foes from the shadows with spectacular stealthy approaches. Well, at least when he isn't running up walls by mistake.
How easy is it to outsmart Lu Bu? Would Ezio get crushed like a bug before he could even land a blow? Vote for your winner in our poll, and tell us how you think the battle would unfold in the comments section below.
