Topic: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10


Full disclosure -- I'm not sure how much longer I'll be keeping these matches up.  Participation has dwindled to the point where I'm practically having to beg for votes.  That's not a plead for sympathy; I simply have better things to do with my time than spend it working on something no one has any interest in.  If participation picks up, great.  If not, I got a whole internet full of porn to catch up on.  Just sayin'.

That out of the way, let's meet this week's contestants:

H.R. Geiger's acidic, avant garde alien versus Stan Winston's half-ton of brain-chewin', body-rippin' terror.  Whoever wins, it ain't gonna be pretty...


1. Vote objectively for who you think is DEADLIER.  This is not a popularity contest.

2. Please be sure to comment below to explain why you came to your decision.  Those who do so, your votes will count as FIVE POINTS

Those who do not, or those whose explanations are in regards to the character's popularity rather than an objective comparing of the characters' abilities (see rule #1), your vote will only count as ONE POINT.

3. Voting will be open for seven days, at which time I'll post the results.

Have fun, and vote responsibly. smile

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

I've seen all the Alien movies but I have not seen the Relic yet so I can't vote.  But just checked and it is streaming on Netflix so I will have to watch it later and then vote.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

^ Good to know about Flix...I'll probably be doing that too.  Not sure if I've seen Relic or not.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

I think you guys'll dig it.  Big, splattery monster-on-the-loose flick.  Lots of talk about hypothalami but once it kicks into gear, Katie bar the door.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

Xenomorphs are much killer than The Relic's ones.
5 movies and they're still killing...

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

Saw The Relic last night.  I had actually seen it before.

Kothoga seemed big and kinda clumsy.  Alien definitely takes it out.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

Judging only by the specs, I havent seen The Relic, and assuming it's one on one, I might go with the Kothoga, despite it perishing shortly afterwards. If it's that much heavier and still agile eventually it would catch and crush the Xenomorph. Unfortunately the acid blood would melt it away, or at least do some severe damage.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

I still have to see The Relic, too. Based off of the information that Lon has provided though, my vote is for Xenomorph.

My reasoning: If Kothoga gets on top of Xenomorph, chances are Xeno will be caught under the weight and have to suffer the consequences (defeat). But my bet is that Xenomorph won't let that happen, given that he has the biological weaponry needed to prevent this from occuring in the first place. As Kathoga charges forward, Xenomorph quickly utilizes his spiked tail and wraps Kothoga in a tight, painful coil. He proceeds to win the battle by shooting out his acid blood in order to disintegrate Kothoga's brain. And wallah, Xenomorph lives to fight another day.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

Yeah, you should really watch The Relic before voting, bro.  I didn't pick Kothoga to take on the Xenomorph because I thought he'd be a push-over. big_smile

EDIT -- reading back over that, it reads as though I'm trying to influence opinion in Kothoga's favor.  Not so; what I mean is that while the Xenomorph bleeds acid and has a spiked tail and all that kind of stuff, in Aliens all it took to kill a crapload of them was automatic gunfire.  But if you watch The Relic, you'll see automatic gunfire has no effect on Kothoga.  So like most of the matches in DHMW, I match up opponents who I think will really give each other a run for their money.

Carry on. smile

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

^ Normally I would have done just that, but unfortunately I don't have Netflix at my disposal and it isn't uploaded on YouTube. hmm

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

Yeah I never DL and donèt have Netflix, so I just went with what I could read.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

I enjoyed the Relic.  I thought kothoga was a pretty awesome monster.  I loved how the monster started out ordinary and kept developing and getting bigger and crazier.  I've seen the Alien movies and must admit that xenomorph is very intimidating as well.  But my vote has to go to Kothoga.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

Xenomorph-they can live in a vacuum, your argument is invalid.

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

Hahaha lol

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

I just have one thing to say from the mouth of Ripley...


But YAY!!!

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

I say the Relic (As long as it's only 1 Xeno)

I haven't seen the film in years, but I remember that lizard was fast as all hell, and deadlier than a razor blade holding a machete!

I think the ancient lizard could pull of f the win, but not without sustaining some major injuries

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

Now that all the voting is over, I can throw in my two cents:

Honestly, I think folks underestimate the Kothoga.  As I said in my post up above, a dozen xenomorphs were wiped out by nothing more than gunfire in Aliens, but Kothoga took out an entire squad of heavily armed SWAT officers without so much as a scratch, AND he grew larger and more powerful when he ate 'em.  You've gotta figure if a bullet can penetrate a Xenomorph's head, then surely Kothoga's massive fangs could, as well.  Yeah, the acid blood will make him regret it but I can totally see Kothoga munching some Xenomorph brain when all is said and done.

But, that's my take.  Good thing I don't actually vote in these things myself or I'd have a bunch of pissed off horror fans on my hands. lol

Re: DHMW Season 2 ROUND 10

What a shame, I was hoping to see a Kothoga vs. The Host match somewhre in the future sad
