A couple people agreed to remove the two matches from Beast, for now it's 4:0 for Beast
On the topic tho, don't you think Beast vs Dante should be removed? After all the upgrades for the former and Downgrades to the Latter, I don't think Dante can really keep up.
Unless the very cocky Dante leads with time Stop, he gets killed by the opening Blast, and even assuming he's bloodlusted Dante will have to use Gilgamesh to transmutate him or he dies after time Stop ends.
His Soul Destruction was debunked and Sealing is gone.
Anyway, this should be a simple fix. Basically, Cole, and anyone who scales to him, should be in the hundreds of meters to km range, since Cole's missles (and certain bolts) can reach into the horizen and beyond (in inFamous 1, missles fly into the horizen and disappear, and then explode, you can see the explosion light up in the distance). There's also city wide storms and everything else.
Lol thanks, I just searched up inFamous memes and eventually I found this little gem
Yeah, rip Rihito the Superman/Ripper, I really didnt need to see him crying. I was really hoping we would see him go farther in the tournament because, y'know, one of the rivals to the MC and all that... but then I was reminded that this was Kengan Asura, where plot armor is pretty thin.
I think he was just unfortunate to get put up against Kuroki, cause even Rei had to acknowledge him as one of the most dangerous guys in the block, and he's fought members of the Kure clan. Pops was OP from the start.
Really excited to see how badly Setsuna wrecks Ren, its gonna take me for a spin :)
Huh, never tried that... I should do that more though. Thought you made that but now I wanna imagine a fanfic of Cole being OPM....
He was tbh a favorite because of how hilarious and cool he is. And dorky. And a buttmonkey. But overall an underdog badass with a cool ability. And yup. Plot armor? We don't need that! You remember the Barista guy who was gonna unleash a nakama power up? Too bad! Get wrecked! Or the man of dreams banchou... That guy I feel bad for the serious disrespect.
But yeah I really did wish he got farther, but if he faces Setsuna next... he might've died.
Yeeeeah, Chuck NOr- I mean Bearded Badass is plenty badass. Been compared to the Fang of Metsuda himself. I won't spoil anything though.
I guess we'll see his boss' plans spiral out of control~
I would love some inFamous/OPM fanfictions. Hell, I'd love some more inFamous fanfics in general that didn't involve angsty OC's, but I digress
I just love how much of a bro Rihito is, his goofy older brother nature is a perfect parallel to Tokita's stoic personality. But yeah, he was basically reduced to the jobber best friend position from his first fight with Ohma, were he was fodderized through pure skill.
Yup, if friendship powers did't save Mokichi, it definitly wasn't gonna save the Mockey dude or Rihito. The author ain't playing no games lol
I really wanna see what the Fang can do, he's been hyped up as the best amoung a group of borderline superhuman martial artists, so you know he's a broken fighter.
Oh, the Electric company guy is gonna be in for a whirl alright :)
Ah yes... Just as great as Gary stu self inserts in Touhou fics. I should start one in that case.
And he was still a memorable character. Relatable too in a way, aspiring to be a hero and well... unable to strive for it... Poor guy ;; but he is, their interactions alonside the MMA fighter baldy was also funny.
Lol, still, Mockey Mouse vs Sasuke was a fight to be hyped about. Did love what happened to him though. But his sister is so poor she can only afford one clothing her entire life
Oooooh the big guy? Me. Don't even think about spoiling anything. DONT HE is a badass though, I'll guarantee you that. And scary.
At this point I think this spun out of control, there's no more puns to be had!
I legit have only read, like, 5 decent inFamous fanfics. Most of them were crossovers. Twas a sad month for me when I found that the inFamous fanfic site base was basically a rebranded Sonic OC fest.
I loved his dialouge during Ohma and Karla's first "date." "His names Kelptulu the Kelp Monster" Never change Rihito, never change.
I actually really liked the way they explained Rei's training. It's apparently loosely based on a real life phenomenon that happens to hardcore dedicated martial artists. I'll see if I can find the link.
Still sucks what happened to Mockey though, and the Fisherman, they're both honstely good people just trying to protect what they care about. But like I said, Kengan Asura don't play around.
I actually have peaked ahead at the raws. Fang vs MMA guy was beastly.
The man killed giant whales with nothing but his barehands while underwater. Definitely at least in the building level. Shame what happened to him, but you really can’t blame Saw, cause he legitimately doesn’t know what’s going on behind the scene, he’s truly in it for the fight. Hope that gets brought up later on.
Watching Fang’s personality do a 180 after taking a few hits was gorgeous. They really mastered his facial expressions to a t. He looked like a completely different person.
I too left some comments to the author regarding power levels, but after awhile I just kinda let it go cause I figured it was still a really good fanfic that did a really good job mixing the lore and story of both verses.
Yeah, he connected the stories in a pretty decent manner, and beyond the fact that Alex is portrayed as kinda upstaging Cole in his own story, the fic is pretty decent (plus, we get a great scene with Kessler rolfstomping Alex and Cole at the same time). There are some pretty decent RWBY x inFamous fics that i read awhile back that were alright, I'll show you them if I can find them.
Yeah, the verse has tons of casual wall feats, and based off what Ohma did in the training chapters (where he splits a massive boulder with a single punch, without using Advance), building level seems reasonable. And yeah, old man was a true badass till the very end. Hope Medicine Man doesn't get him. I really want to see him again in later chapters.
It was so WEIRD! Fang looked like a totally different person. He goes from this stoic badass to rampaging lunatic that puts Raian to shame in 0.0002 seconds. Then he just fixes his hair and he's back to normal. Freaky.
One-upping Cole .... That's a detraction but oh well. And as long as they're not power fantasies lol. I think I remember an old one with Delsin...
Sweet! And Supersonic seems like a good basis considering that Hair man was... well deflecting bullets and Ohma can overwhelm him casually till the hair thing. After that he just started losing. Still, love all those feats
It must be his work face lol. Like when you look excited or energized for something haha. Still, I find it likeable to imagine him as a Yakuza character
Yeah, not gonna lie I was peeved at that to, but I let it go for the sake of the story. Though both Cole and Alex become somewhat equals in the end of the story (they even include David in there). Plus, we still get a great several paragraphs long description of Kessler curbstomping Alex on Alden's Tower.
There's also Justice Man's inhuman reaction time (which was 0.00.. something iirc), and Himalayan guy somewhat managed to keep up with him after awakening. I wanna say that Niko's feats are worth noting, but I'm 99% sure that was just really good aim dodging, idk the description was weird.
I am 90% sure he has some sort of body manipulation that matches the Surgeon, lol. That face just transformed. Oh he's totally some sort of criminal or martial arts prodigy. Really curious to see what his backstory is.
Both endgame Kuo and Nix scale to 7 Blast Cores Absorbed Cole, who performed a 251.431612978 gigaton level feat just moments after absorbing the 7th blast core. The reason they scale is because they have either fought him or have been recognized by him as being powerful.
The reason why only RFI/Beast Cole scale to the Beast is because (and this is made apparent in the game) is that Cole needed to go two rounds against John, and hit him with a prolonged Ionic Storm, and get help from an enraged Nix's suicide blast just to slow him down for a few seconds (he later returns to go one more round). Cole had to chip away at his health bar, whereas most of Beast's attacks did moderate damage. If you get caught in the linear bath of his multi-explosion ball, you can get put into the gray screen. If he catches you in his gravity hole, he immediately starts crushing/draining you, which wares down your health out extremely quickly, and even if you strike him in the face, he'll still latch onto you, making it extremely difficult to break out. You actually die in a few seconds on hard difficulty.
It was only after he became empowered that he managed to easily chip away at John's health.
Nix also never really fought the Beast on even terms. In the good ending, she let Cole to go two rounds with John so he could distract him long enough for the RFI could charge, and while he was summoning down his lighting storm, she decided to suicide blast him. It was more of a two pronged attack that stunned John.
In the Evil Ending, she relied on the RFI to weaken the Beast, only dealing with 7 Blast Cores Absorbed Evil Cole.
Sorry for the confusion, but at least we now have more options for Cole matches. His unlimited energy and flight in RFI mode makes him a pest to put down, and Beast Cole is one of the most haxy High 6-C characters around, with his regen making it now impossible to kill him without power null or high matter manipulation.
Also, realized something that might make Beast even better? Wanna hear?
If its Cole then of course. Getting sucked into the gravity only slighty damages Cole instead of getting poofing him.
If it's John, then yeah, he does appear to have control over his body down to the atomic level, as he did put himself back together after getting ripped apart atom by atom, and can transmutate things he absorbs.
I need to change it to resistance, but basically, it was stated in the dead drops that Sasha’s mind control techniques had absolutely no effect on Kessler, much to her displeasure.
What makes this so impressive is that Kessler completely no sold Sasha’s mind control, whereas Cole has to put much more effort into fighting it off. In his first encounter, Cole actually needed help resisting Sasha’s mindscrew, and then after that built up a resistance.
Really, the only thing that screwed him over in that fight was his stamina. He could only let out so many attacks before tiring out, though he “recharged” pretty quickly and got back into the fight just as fast as he left it.
He’s also arguably one of the most durable, as he took an extended beating from Cole, a direct hit from a thunderstorm, and still managed to get up and blitz Cole one last time to show him his memories.
It’s ironic because when I first asked around about the feat and it’s then hypothetical calc, someone told me it wasn’t worth it (I first heard of the nuke feat from a respect thread, but they were claiming it fell in the petaton range).
Who knew that one of the weakest non-fodders in the verse would end up being its saving grace? (But seriously, read Jagi Gaiden, it’s so sad)
Teridax could be good, but it’s really more of a who strikes first scenario, cause these boys are HAXED
I was gonna do a Kenshiro vs DCEU Doomsday, but then I realized that once Ken realizes his Hokuto Shinken isn’t effective against a mutated Kryptonian/human physiology, he’ll bust out Muso Tensei and that’ll be all she wrote
Greene uploads her past memories to Alex's head, then before she stops, there was a scene showing a perfectly normal Times Square, followed by the same scene of manhattan, torn apart with walkers roaming the streets.
I'm thinking precog, because the virus was only confirmed on the island the day Mercer went to free Greene (there weren't any outbreaks at all), but the day after she released it, 4% of the population was infected. Time Square gets around 330,000 people passing through daily, which is 20% of Manhattan's population. Turns out in Prototype, Day 6 of the infection had 20% of the population infected. We know it was before she was killed since she can't show a future she's dead in, which was on Day 12.
So the changes in Manhattan were multiple days apart, but at least one day.
Funnily enough, a lot of Beast vs KLK end up as a stomp due to him being immune to their mind hax and his regen, but that’s beside the point
Still unsure where we should go with scaling, but from what I’ve gathered so far, Cole’s new stats will be:
Small City level (based off Teen’s calc) | at Small City level (was weakened by the Beast, but could still create storms similar to the one that struck New Marais and could convert bullets into energy) | Multi-Continental level (could contend with the Beast after absorbing all 7 Blast Cores) l at least Multi-Contenental level (parted the clouds over the US, easily overpowered the Beast without the use of his Ionic powers) | Multi-Continental (has the powers of both himself and the Beast, the Beast could contend with RFI Cole, albeit outmatched)
I’m just now realizing that no one really uses that argument. Like, seriously, good Cole is more willing to go for a restrain than his evil counterpart. His grenades in inFAMOUS 1 could automatically restrain enemies caught in the explosion.
