Oh ho, see, that's where you're wrong! I have neither taste nor class—just look at my dating history, yikes—and as I've highlighted in my quote, even I can't quite figure out my inexplicable attraction to the potato man with the confused identity.

He's even willing to let it be decided on a gill toss. He doesn't want to hurt innocent people.
I don't know, Jenova cells seem to lead mostly to people donning black cloaks, mumbling illegible comments about reunions, and occasionally having psychotic breaks. Those few people who DO thrive on Jenova cells all seem to sport a certain ageless, smooth skinned look you might describe as bishounen. Sadly, I fear Butch is doomed to collapse into empty air like so many of his Jenova brethren, leaving behind naught but a few potato peelings.

And then there's Heidegger's DNA - that hardly seems like the stuff of super heroes. Has Heidegger ever fought someone who could fight back? His DNA doesn't seem to add much of a saving grace to this unscientific cocktail.

Was Butch Tseng's right-hand man, or did he just think he was - an excellent cover for the fact the Turks were keeping a wary eye on an accidental experiment? And once they realised Butch was, in fact, mostly harmless, they let him 'escape'. I mean, the guy hangs out in full view in Costa del Sol - doesn't seem like the Turks are trying that hard to bring him back in!

Would EDK/BG throw the match, taking pity on this poor, pathetic, balding potato? Maybe -- though I'll let my teammates have the final say on that one.

Pffft I think not

While your potato filled his pockets full of Gil our hero is off helping others to save the world.
Now gather round children while I sing you a lil song

Gosh, it disturbs me to see you Evil Dragon King
Looking so down in the dumps
Every guy here'd love to be you, EDK
Even when taking your lumps
There's no man or woman in town as admired as you
You're everyone's favorite dragon
Everyone's awed and inspired by you
And it's not very hard to see why

No one's slick as EDK
No one's quick as EDK
No one's neck's as incredibly thick as EDK'S
For there's no dragon in town half as manly
Perfect, a pure paragon
You can ask any potato, tseng, or reno
And they'll tell you whose team they prefer to be on-o.

Who play cards like EDK?
Who break hearts like EDK?
Who’s much more than the sum of his parts like EDK?
As a dragon king, yes, I'm intimidating
My, what a dragon, that EDKKKKKKKKKKKKK!
Team Moogle, you need to get your story straight. Is EDK an actual evil dragon king, or is it a beautiful girl in a dragon costume? It can't be both.

Must be the pheromones.

Sadly, I fear Butch is doomed to collapse into empty air like so many of his Jenova brethren, leaving behind naught but a few potato peelings.
But you see, that's what makes our hero so extraordinary. He's been evading Jenova's influence for all these years because he's just that mentally strong. Jenova is weak against the self-assured types with wills of iron.

We look at at the likes of Cloud Strife as the primal example of the extent of damage that Jenova can cause to a host strong enough to endure this virus. You cite that hosts like Cloud sport an ageless, 'bishie' look as though this is the rule, ignoring the fact that Cloud was already a little effeminate looking to begin with. Just look at him here, prior to being injected with Jenova cells in Hojo's laboratory

If the boy hadn't been so fixated on becoming a First Class SOLDIER, he might've gotten his big break in modelling. Yes, I'll take that infinity scarf in blue, please!


It turns out that hosts that are infected with the Jenova virus can look like Butch, too. But we don't hear about heroes like Butch because he isn't particularly sexy looking or exciting. He's a decent person with simple desires—there isn't enough angst there that's marketable. So he's kept back, hidden. The Neville Longbottom to Cloud's Harry Potter. This is an unfortunate byproduct of a society so caught up in looks.

It just goes to show, you can come from the humblest of beginnings—directly from Heideggers nostrils even—and still make something of yourself. What a guy, this spud is!

Because Turks don't turn their back on other Turks—even the ones that choose to leave the service. There's too much love and loyalty there. An understanding shared amongst a people who lead a dangerous, unique type of life. Where the person against your back could mean the difference between you walking away from a field job whole or in a casket.

Besides, The Spud was Buds with Tseng. No Turk would dare disrespect the Head Turk's ex-partner in that manner—not unless they had a deathwish! They might look to Butch longingly, but give a single nod in understanding. They've all been there—that dark place that might drive a Turk to abandon their post...

Team Moogle, you need to get your story straight. Is EDK an actual evil dragon king, or is it a beautiful girl in a dragon costume? It can't be both.

Oh I believe we can.
Lest we forget your man is also a potato

omg, a sentient, functional, independent, genetically modified potato who is able to form bonds and fight crime, okay??

Would a normal potato be able to keep a shop and desire human companionship? What, do you think he's not good enough for anyone just because his genetic make-up has strong traces of Solanum tuberosum?? Despite all that he's done to prove his very humanity?

*Wipes tears from eyes* You know, it's this sort of prejudiced, blind disregard for people who may be a little different from everyone else that's tearing this world apart. Team Moogle, I beg of thee, stop denying Butch his personood and recognise him for who he is! Not what he is! Judges, I plead with you! Disregard this slander campaign set against my champion. All his life he's had to fight this stigma—don't be another condoning voice for the spiteful chorus of others. T_T

STOP THE MADNESS

This marks the end of round 1-12!

Spectators (and the audience!*) have 24 hours to cast their votes (either by posting in this thread or messaging me privately) for the champion that they have been swayed to stand behind. Your judges are...



Clement Rage
Joe
solo player sab

At this time, spectators and audience members are allowed to post their thoughts on the match. Players are NOT ALLOWED to counter any of these comments with new arguments or to continue ‘battling’ in general. Any attempt to do so will count as an automatic loss for your team. Players are free, however, to pay compliments to your opponents and such. ^^

Players!

If you’d like to opt out of participating in the next round, tell me during the 24 voting period.. Otherwise, I’m going to assume you’re still playing and you’re going to be reshuffled into a new team.

In General

If anyone (players, spectators, audience, anyone) has any feedback, questions, or concerns regarding the rules, please post that in the master thread here. It’ll be easier for me to keep track of/find your feedback this way for future reference. Thank you!

Any non-participant who’d like to be shuffled into a team, please say so now.

That round was particularly crazy.
I liked it.

I apologise for not participating. It took a road I could not quite follow before I knew it.

I had an absolute blast! As I mentioned in the main thread, I was cracking up the entire time. From the photoshop of a burnt Butch early on to the super potato origin story and alll the back and forth. XD

Kudos to Team Moogle! Your combined efforts certainly kept me on my toes.


Wonder what the judges made of all of that...

EDIT: NINJA'D BY MINATO!

That's quite all right, lovey! Did you want to try and give the next round a go?
