Azula versus Edward Elric
Ink: I feel really about about Ed losing this fight. But he totally would.
Words: The difference isn't skill. It's ruthlessness.
Words: Ed has a definite aversion to killing.
Words: Whereas Azula lives and breathes ruthlessness.
Words: The second Ed gets her trapped, she defaults to Blowing Crap Up.
Ink: And let's not forget--Azula likes lightening. And metal is a conductor.
(Not to mention, Winry would kill him for getting his wiring screwed up.)
Words: Double ouch.
Ink: Double ouch indeed.
Words: Ed wouldn't know what had hit him.
Ink: Although I'm sure that sparring with Roy would have prepared him for fighting in the midst of fire, which I'm sure a lot of real badasses wouldn't be prepared for.
Words: Hmm, fair point.
Words: But not lightning.
Ink: Definitely not.
Words: Azula could hit him anywhere on the body and it would bounce at least twice before finally leaving.
Words: And Azula's known for NASTY exit wounds.
Words: And entry wounds.
Ink: Azula's just known for bringing the pain.
Ink: In any way possible.
Words: The only chance Ed would have is if Azula called him "short."
Words: But even then, she's used to beating the pants off Zuko, who I'm sure she's driven to homicidal rage.
Words: Ed would beat her up because she would TOTALLY insult him.
Ink: Azula is good at driving people into homicidal rage, I'm sure she can handle it.
Words: It is, after all, one of her greatest talents.
Ink: Alchemy probably wouldn't even faze her--she's dealt with Earthbenders.
Words: Even if she didn't one-shot him, Ed would start trying to analyze her lightning attack, and that would be it.
Words: Azula's got this one in the bag.
Ink: Azula has this one wrapped up.
Ink: Sorry, Ed.
Ink: we still love you.
Words: We do!
Words: Even if you're...
Ink: don't say it!
Words ducks and covers.
Ink: you'd better run.
