Welcome to the Third Place decider of team fights of the second Bleach Tournament!
Here are the contestants who will battle against each other to win third place in team fights:
TEAM 1 TEAM 13
And the next tough battle. I guess all finals are like that.
Tessai, captain of Kido corps, can use all types of shields, bindings and attacks. One mistake can mean being binded and killed by Soifon in an instant.
Soifon, Ms. One-Shot Kill. Well, it's a twoshot but under good circumstances it's like one. She is not alone after all.
Riruka, weak, but could have killed Rukia. Because Rukia is stupid but hey, she can be considered VC level, right? As a fellow FB under Tsukishima she can be considered more or less Inoue's equal in terms of fighting power. But she has no God-like Healing skills.
On the other hand
Love, hard-headed tank, with big-ass club, that can EASILY negate 5 Ceros from released Stark. His mask allows him and Rose to tank Stark's strongest technique. Yeah, they were bruised and would be done for if they didn't go Bankai but it's still a feat.
Sajin, next tank, whose brute strength exceeds everyone in current G13. One hit from Bankai's hand means broken and crushed arm for Hollowfied Tousen. If not for Instant Regeneration he wouldn't have been able to use that arm. It was broken in like 20 places. The very same Bankai has big weakness, a hit to huge bankai is a hit to Sajin. Which makes him huge target, easy to hit.
Inoue, best healer ever, her powers are godly, not really a fighting type.
If Soifon hits Komamura's bankai two times, will he get killed? Soifon can deal with it's speed. Can Inoue's time-reversal, event-rejecting technique reject Soifon's Suzumebachi? I think answers are both "Yes". Team 13 advantage there I guess.
Can Love's club, that could easily tank 5 Ceros from Stark (that were enough to wound Shunsui), tank Tessai's Hadou 88? I think so. Can his fire technique while Hollowfied be enough to take down a captain? Not likely, but certainly wound him enough to be an easier target. It's not like it's a one-time technique, he can use it again. Can his Hollowfication be enough to deal with Soifon's speed? Riruka is irrelevant in this battle for the most part. Inoue can use her shield and play with her while healing Komamura and Love. Team 13 in a stomp? Again? Too bad they got Gin in the last battle. Prodigy with one-hit kill technique? Overpowered. Aizen was the only one who could kill him I guess...
A difficult judgement...sajin is surely stronger than soifon,but tesaai is maybe the toughest one out of these characters,he should be able to defeat love quite quickly. Yet,orihime surely is stronger than riruka. Uhm,I give it to komamura,as his sheer strength is amazing...
I'm favouring Team 13 at the moment. Komamura's overwhelming power is obviously going to be a threat, and I don't see how Team 1 effectively battles that. Inoue is also particularly useful in this battle. She could potentially wipe away Tessai's defensive kido, while also removing the marks from Soifon's Suzumebachi, effectively negating the threat of her ability so long as they can stop her from hitting them twice within a short period of time. Riruka is pretty useless in the scheme of this battle, if she gets caught anywhere near Love of Komamura, she's out. And she'd probably go down against Inoue also. Team 13 should take this with low to moderate difficulty.
Team 1 takes this... Riruka occupies Inuoe , while Soi fon uses her speed to 2 shot quick kill Komamaru, Love and tessai can keep them busy for a while, once Komamaru and Soifon are finished (Soi fon killing Komamary OFC) then they can double team Love and Inuoe won't be a great threat for team 1, she can block for sure, she can repel the damage but against sme physical attacks of riruke she won't be of that much use.
If Inoue uses Shiten Koshun, Riruka wont be able to touch her. She would like stay in her shield and if someone attacks her, the attacker would receive damage (maybe) equal to the force of the attack while supporting (rejecting) the Homonka's of Soi Fon. Still Soi Fon's ability is quite strong especially if she utilize her cloning technique she would be able to KO Koma or Love in an instant and there is also Tessai to deal with.
Power vs. Speed
Soi Fon - Assassin vs. Komamura - Brute strength
Tessai - Barrier/Kido vs. Love Aikawa - Sheer power
Riruka - the only exception vs. Inoue Orihime - Rejectionist
The only fight that would totally win would be Orihime's so I'll give to team 1.
P.S. Im not implying that Komamura and Love are slow its just that Soi Fon is not on their same level in regards to speed.
Team 1 (Soifon, Tessai Tsukabishi, Riruka Dokugamine) : 4
Team 13 (Love Aikawa, Sajin Komamura, Orihime Inoue) : 10
Team 13 wins the bronze medal.
