opMADNESS 2015 Swords Tournament - Semifinal

Well, after a long tournament, we are now down to our final two competitors. And given how these two have just plowed through the competition, I’m wondering if we should’ve just had these two compete against each other from the beginning. But… whatever.

And if you don’t know which swords have been on a collision course of fate, here are the results from the previous round.

  • Monado defeats Fierce Deity Sword 59-20
  • Master Sword defeats Falchion 50-29

And now, ladies and gentlemen, IT’S TIME!

Xenoblade |

First, out of Hyrule, this is the ultimate sword of its series. It has been used from early on as the ultimate weapon against the great evils of the world and is blessed by goddesses and sages alike. This is the runner-up to the Top Ranked sword of 2013 and our overall number 2 seed in the tournament. From The Legend of Zelda series, the Blade of Evil’s Bane, THE MASTER SWORD!

Link in Soul Calibur with the Master Sword

And, out of the Bionis, a newcomer that allows you to see certain events in the future in an effort to alter them. It also has to power to do its master’s bidding, whether it is for creation, destruction, or felling a powerful enemy. This is oprainfall’s Top Ranked sword of 2013 and the overall number 1 seed in our sword tournament. From Xenoblade Chronicles, the God-Slaying Sword, THE MONADO!

Xenoblade - Shulk and Monado Ability

And you know what, I’m kind of curious who would win between Falchion and Fierce Deity Sword. So…
