Ninja Vs Shaolin Monk
Sorry for the delay, but i had trouble finding out what weapons i was gonna use for this match-up. Both parties have had an amazing amount of weapons and i really could not figur out what would be an honest match-up. I finally agreed on the weapons and this first time, i stayed close to DW.
Will the sneaky murderer be able to assasinate the pacifistic monk, or will he strike back and show who is the deadlier warrior.
Ninja VS. Shaolin Monk
Ninja Everybody has seen a anime or read a manga where those sneaky played a part. He was either the hero who had to save the day, or the evil villain who must be slain to make shure the kingdom was safe. The Ninja was a lowerclass peasant who got training to become a deadly warrior. Most of the time these peasants hated the upperclass people. These peasants got training to become an sneaky warrior, who showed these upperclass samurai that people in the lower class could be dangerous too. Not all ninja were peasants, some famous ninja were in fact upperclass soldiers and samurai. I wonder if they killed themselfs. The ninja had three important jobs. Espionage: The most important job of the ninja. They came in disguise and checked enemy terrain, buildings or passwords/codes. Sabotage: the ninja sabotaged an enemy castle or camp. Those things are perfect to weaken a enemy without getting anyone hurt. Assasination: altough it is unclear if an ninja was trained to be an assasin of just a mercenary for hire, but fact is that in history, a lot of famous people died onder strange circumstances. Everybody knows about the ninja who could control the elements and transform into any animal, he liked. He sneaked in a black suit, to stay hidden. The stories about supernatural powers are partly because of the mysterie that surrounds them and partly brought in the world by themself, making them look more fearsome or badass. In history the ninja has donned many disguises, but there is no record of the black suit we know today. This suit comes from the theater, in japanse theater, non-cast members wore black suits on the stage, people did not pay attention that way. When ninja came on stage, he needed to be invisible and so the actor wore a black suit.
The ninja will sneak his way around with the ninjato, kusarigama and last the black eggs. The ninja does not wear any armour. As you can see, i chose to keep the weapons of DW, i onlly put them in different types. I think that this will give a balanced representation of the ninja.
Shaolin Monk The Shaolin Monk is a buddhist monk. Altough they are peaceful, they learned to use many dangerous weapons to protect themselfs. The name is quick recogniseble and many people around the world know of this monk. This is partly by populai culture like bullitproof monk and mortal kombat, but also because of the kung fu form, shaolin Kung fu. These monks try to avoid battle as much as possible, but can injure, maim and kill if need to. Sorry about the little information about them, but thats all i could find, which was not an opinion.
The Monk strikes back with the broadsword, quaterstaff, rope dart and twin hooks. The Shoalin too, will be unarmed. As uou can see, i have replaced the emaipierces with the broadsword, because i could find nothing indicating the monks used emai piercers. I also replaced the whipchain, for the same reason as the piercers. The weapons the monk is using are 14 of the 17 basis weapons that are associated with them.
Ninjato Vs. Broadsword Both are powerful weapons, but the broadsword the monk uses, is not good at thusting, he can cut very well. I give a very small advatage to the ninjato, because it is quicker and can thrust easily as well as cut. Edge: Ninja
Kusarigama Vs. Quarterstaff The kusarigama has a ball that can smash, a chain that can choke and a kama that can cut. The quarterstaff can smash. Both are very good weapons, the problem with the quarterstaff is that you need to hit the face or temple to kill. It is a good defence weapon but a less good offence weapon. Also the kusarigama outranges the quarterstaff. Edge Ninja
Blowgun Vs. Rope dart The blowgun is a perfect weapon to kill someone from a distance. The poisend darts it shoots out, can kill as soon as it comes into contact with blood. The rope dart needs to be swung but can cut and choke. Problem with the blowgun is that it needs to enter the blood to work, that is not a big problem with the unarmed monk, but you can still hit only flesh. The rope dart does not need to reload, you can use it as many times as possible and you can choke your opponent or use to knife at the end of the cord in your hand. Thats why i give the egde to the rope dart. Edge: Shaolin Monk
Black eggs Vs. Twin Hooks The black eggs are a good methode to escape or make your opponent exposed. If it hits, its basicly end of the battle, but if it misses, it will not do anything at all. Plus there is a chance you get it in your own eyes. The twin hooks are good weapons to defend and attack. They can hooked together to get an even longer range and can both cut and pierc. Even though the black eggs are cool and usefull in battle, the egge goes to the twinhooks. Edge: Shaolin Monk
Armour Neither warrior wears armour. The ninja can dress up to hide his appearence, but that only works untill the first attack. Also, from the appearence of the monk, you wont suspect an able warrior. Edge: Even
