Carnevil, that's only in Shonen mangas. In Seinen, it's the guy that has something to live for that wins, whether it be drugs, sex, or friends.
And I guess that's what it comes down to in Air Gear. Nike may be potentially a lot more strong that Aeon, but if his attack would cause him harm too, then he'll be less inclined to use it. Aeon feels like he has to win, so he's willing to sacrifice himself...
we already have aeon doing sonia+thunder combos... we don't need another one. besides, ringo is better off trying to get a hold of the real thorn regalia.
my theory goes to nike (in disguise and/or doing his typical sneak up tactics) had taken the regalia from rika, which is why she was late to the fight 6 years ago. sora probably thought that rika may not fully support him like he would want if she did in fact join the fight because kiric was also a friend and if sora won, he would make some elaborate lie and 'get' her regalia back to have her back on his side. it was stated earlier that sora had intended on having rika become the thorn queen again (for genesis), but since there's more reason for her to stay out of the fighting (ringo, mikan, ume and ikki), he opted to brainwash her.
Nike really is strongest more like (monster)... It's time for Ikki and Kazu kick his asshole.
