@joygirl: I'll need to go dig up feats for Tira. I'll try to have an answer tomorrow.

@risingbean: :D

Also to get it out of the way -- yes, it ends in sex, but the battle can be what happens before that.

@mitran: Yeah that, but more closely resembling no-holds-barred combat.

@mitran: Highly-skilled assassin, addicted to murder, eats souls, split personality, hangs with people like Nightmare who slaughter armies single-handedly.

@joygirl: Hah I remember playing Tira in SC. Don't remember any of her cinematic feats though :( care to refresh my memory?

@stridet92: I didn't play III or V, but IV was pretty light on cinematics -- though I do believe in story mode she defeats Nightmare, if story mode feats count. The biggest thing is her critical finish where she eats your soul, showing that she is, y'know, capable of doing that.

I'm no expert on either but I had SCIII and Tira is no joke. She has a highly unorthodox weapon and fighting style. She is a quick little psycho b-tch. I'm pretty sure she has an extremely high threshold for pain and probably enjoys receiving it as well as dishing it out. If she can beat Nightmare then......Does Felicia have superhuman stats?

@oscuro: Yeah she does. Last I checked she managed to take on Sabretooth (though not everyone was totally convinced).

And I forget whether Tira is actually equal with Nightmare or not. I know she was his servant and eventually she left him but I can't remember if she fought him or not. I feel like she did but it's been a bit since I played SCIV.

I don't know who Tira is, but I don't care.

Felicia wins. She always wins. She wins against Batman with prep (totally went there).

@joygirl:

I am actually aware of Tira, I'm a fan of Soul Calibur and I'm familiar with fighting her. I prefer Taki and Aeon myself though, haha.

Felicia will still always be the best though, she's the queen bee of comic badass females in my book.

As for this fight? I still think Black Cat. She's got luck on her side (literally) and while Tira outmatches her fighting skills and strength, Felicia is crafty and incredibly agile. It's tough as Felicia is not the greatest fighter, but I think she can pull it off.

And she lucks Tira into eating her own soul. And Batman's (totally went there again!).

@granitesoldier: Tira can throw her ring into the air and ride it like a surfboard... and also has enough pain tolerance to use it as a hula hoop for fun.... *Tira fangirl*

@joygirl:

He was tricky, not the hardest to learn but he had some curve to using him effectively. His behind grapple was my favorite, lifting someone up and whipping them face first into the dirt.

@joygirl:

I never played enough to get on that level. The most I played was when I was deployed (ironically) and between missions and patrols I'd play with some EOD guys who were totally into it. I lost a lot, but I found a winning rhythm with Aeon. I still lost a lot though haha. I guess bomb-techs play SC to blow off steam because they were always in that tent.

@joygirl:

I was always more into Street Fighter. By the by apparently EOD guys hate Street Fighter. Don't know why, and even though I would think it was specific to that group they made it clear it is EOD wide. Not that that information helps you much haha.

@joygirl: Damnit, I did too. I got busy with other stuff then research. Lemme see what I can pull up on a site or three.

@granitesoldier: I worked a 17 hour day with a hole in my eardrum because of EOD. Took frickin' forever to show up after we'd call them.

@granitesoldier: Sometimes? Man I think it took a minimum of two hours with those cats. It's like they had to finish up at the MWR, meander to the motor pool and maybe they'll smoke and joke first. I'll be honest. I've gotten over it but I really hated EOD when I was there. They were up along the lines of defac clowns who had nothing better to do then harrass you when you tried to eat.

@risingbean:

Haha, I've only really dealt with Air Force EOD and they weren't so bad. Where yours Army or AF? I've heard that even though they all go through the same training they differ greatly branch to branch in their field work. I can't speak for all EOD, obviously I am not one nor do I know them all, but the team I knew wasn't that bad. Slow by our (JTAC) standards, but we aren't prepping to disarm bombs so I guess it's a different standard haha.

@joygirl: As for the fight. I looked up some stuff and it seems that Tira is human level. I think that her eclectic weapon choice gives her an advantage to start as it would make her hard to read. If Cat gets a feel for her I think that it may actually work against her. And the fact she sometimes injures herself doesn't help her case. I'd probably say if she can beat the Cat quick enough she may have a chance, but I think Felecia take a majority if she has bad luck powers.

Also this seems like a fight that should be pitting Tira vs Harley. Why hasn't that been done?

@granitesoldier: I'd assume they were army. I never had to talk to them. I was busy pulling security and the like. At any rate QRF they are not.

@risingbean: Out of curiosity what feats did you pull up? Because she obviously isn't totally human considering she eats souls/drains your life force/whatever.

Wish I knew more about the Soul Calibur world, I didnt play it much at all I just dabbled in SC4 for a couple of weeks, I mostly played Taki then.

Come to think of it I dont really know much about Black Cat either, but if I had to chose id put my money on Tira.
