2015 Anime Villains Tournament, Round 2, Match 3
For this battle, we match up…
Asura - Soul Eater -vs.- Dark Bakura - Yu-Gi-Oh
Asura. Dark Bakura is just an evil ring - in fact he's not even the most powerful evil ring in fiction :P
Pretty easy win for Asura, unless you're awfully nostalgic for Yu-Gi-Oh! or something.
Asura is an easy choice for me.
Yeah, even coming from someone who stopped caring about Yu-Gi-Oh years ago, Dark Bakura really is that good of a villain, even better than Asura, though by an inch admittedly.
Thing is, as freaky as Asura is, he really doesn't do anything until the very end. It's Medusa and Arachne who carry most of the story.
Bakura is always there in the background, waiting for the perfect chances to steal the Macguffins the other characters possess. And when he finally does successfully steal them all, his CHILDREN'S RPG (that's right, no silly card games, we're going deeper gaiz) leaves everyone completely at his mercy.
There's also that one time he killed Pegasus by yanking his eye out. Then licked it. Eugh.
This'll probably be the last time I vote for him though. A character from a show about card games should never make it past Round 3 of any tourney like this, no matter how good they may or may not be.
My vote goes to Asura.
I was never a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh (no hate, just not impressed) so my vote goes to Asura.
Dark Bakura gets my vote.
