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.

Lu Bu is so cheap of a character.
@Azikira So does that mean he'd beat Ezio?
Really, Ryu beat Yoshimitsu? What is this world coming to.
Anyway, I choose Old Man Lu because the guy's a straight-up beast. Ezio wouldn't stand a chance unless he avoided flat terrain and stayed in the city where he could launch sneak attacks, because he'd be destroyed in a head-2-head confrontation.
While I'm normally in despair over who to vote for, I think Lu Bu and Red Hare would take this one.
Lu Bu easily. Anyone who's played Dynasty Warriors knows that guy can take down an army in a single mosou attack so poor, dweeby little Ezio doesn't have a chance with his pompous sneakery. Plus Lu Bu drinks Pepsi. Winner.
I really don't know what makes Dynasty Warriors a popular game. It's like ad nauseam in video game form. Then there's Assassin's Creed. Hehhugh! shudder
I'd take Anime storytelling over pretentious storytelling. So Buk Lau wins.
It's a close match, but I chose Ezio for one reason. He would be good at dodging Lu Bu, he has the means to escape him, and he only has to hit him once by suprise to take him down, while Lu Bu would need more than one blow.
@MadchesterManc I must admit, he has exceptional taste in soft drinks.
Never played AC II but if he's from Firenze then he gets my vote.
It depends on where the battle takes place. I would put my money on Ezio
@ShogunRok Yeah. I am hard-pressed to think of anyone who would stand a legitimate chance against Lu Bu. QUICK, SOMEONE GET THE GAME GENIE!
@MadchesterManc Coke over Pepsi everyday. I would imagine Ezio drinking Coke because he is so damn cool!!
LuBu is a hell of a SOAB. I wouldn't want to stand between him and whatever he is after. So shouldn't Eizio. If its about stupid names, its a draw though!
ezio would win , more agile and loads of weapons at his disposal
Lu Bu, would run Ezio through!
Lu Bu goes to war and slaughters 1000's of enemies, pillages and raises villages... Meanwhile, Ezio's to busy trying to hide in hay bales from city guards, becuase he is scared to get his butt whipped.
There is not a glitch in hell's chance!
Lu Bu seems to be about outright power on the battle field.
Ezio is about power from a position of stealth.
Both are used to fighting large numbers so focused on just each other they are even more dangerous.
I trust Ezio is used to fighting characters in armour, but doubt Lu Bu is used to fighting stealthy characters (Dynasty Warriors isn't exactly known for it's stealth).
Ezio's got all the acrobatic, parkour stuff going so he has to take the fight off the open spaces into the nooks and crannies.
Lu Bu may lack finesse which could also swing the fight towards Ezio once in close quarters. Every hit from Lu Bu could potentially be a kill and hit like a hammer, a sharp pointy hammer, so Ezio has to keep moving. Ezio's high energy is definitely a plus here.
I don't know who would win. I won't officially vote since I don't know.
