The rules for the battles are long and complicated. While I will try to have them all up in time it’s definitely tough. I’ll try and address as many as I can.
1. All fighters have access to everything. Meaning for instance, at one point Wolverine had the Phoenix Force right? Well he gets that automatically for all fights. (So be warned if you’re trying to drop him!) Another example is Superman wielding Thor’s hammer. He keeps that as well.
2. Fighters get all of their super/alternate forms. So Spiderman gets Ultimate Spiderman. He also gets the Peter Parkers from pretty much all other dimensions. Likewise Godzilla gets his Heisei, Showa, and Millenium forms (Even Kiryu!) Fusion forms are also valid for matches. Alternate versions of the same character are not permitted aside from ones already on the blog. Iconic characters who have various incarnations will usually be labelled as the same character unless they have sufficiently differentiated themselves. For example: Saber and Arthur from Fate and Seven Deadly Sins don’t fall generally into the default King Arthur category.
5. Only 1 on 1 fights are done on the blog
6. No fight can happen twice (Though I do switch the victor accordingly if there is a new power up or something)
7. Only fictional characters are eligible to fight on the blog with the exception of animals already included in the blog. Fictional characters based on real people can be a case by case basis of how they differentiate themselves from the real incarnation. For example: Abe Lincoln from the vampire film is obviously still the real figure so he wouldn’t count, but someone like Saber from Fate is really a character in her own right.
8. Time Traveling to before the character’s created or something that feels like cheating (Since said battle would never have happened) isn’t allowed. Basically anything that sidesteps the actual fight wouldn’t work.
9. Only shown, or otherwise eligible feats count. So guys like The One Above All are technically powerless to fight unless they actually fight in the future
10. No willing people out of existence. This is a fight after all! You can’t just blip someone away.
11. Location is at a place hard to describe and yet fair. Think Final Destination from Super Smash Bros but no blast zones. Effectively it’s a place that has water for fish like Nemo, air, forest, land, etc. So there’s no ring-outs here and characters can go all out.
12. A fighter needs to have a picture to count on the blog. If your character is so obscure that he/she has never appeared then that’s not quite going to work.
13. Healing items can’t exceed the original max health or give it back more than once. So only 1 Senzu Bean at max and for recovers, Megaman can only heal damage equal to his original health. If it’ an ability they can spam it, but not an item
14. Summoning. I know that this one is complicated, but bear with me. Ash gets his pokemon because he caught them, so they count as items. Likewise with Lightning and Odin. However Batman won’t get Superman and scientists won’t automatically get their machines. They have to actually control them. Whether telepathically or through a chip that forces them to obey. Just because they are friends doesn’t mean they can help. Like Galactus and Silver Surfer or Goku and the Z fighters. So for Pokemon, Ash needs to catch the pokemon in a pokeball for it to count (Obvious Pikachu exception) As for the rest, I’ll tell you if it counts or not
15. You can only have up to 100 battle requests at a time. I used to go up to 1000 but then you’re not going to see your fight for years anyway so that’s a bit extreme.
16. Zombies won’t count on the blog unless it’s a specific character with his unique name. Most zombies don’t count on the blog for the same reason that random humans don’t. Humans/Zombies are really non-specific and even when there are different versions (Like Dead Island) they are essentially just humans. This is one of the blog’s newest rules so you may see a zombie or two from the old times once in a while (Zombies who are already on the blog as permitted to keep on fighting) but you won’t be seeing any new ones. (Unless the zombie is a specific character like Brook (Not that he’s a zombie))
17. Aside from animals currently on the blog no new ones will be admitted at this time
These are some of the rules, but not all of them and probably not in depth enough. Still, it’s a basis to look at when you are viewing the fights or requesting one. I hope this clears whatever questions you may have 😀
