VGCFO: Goombas vs. Met
For our very first Video Game Character Face-off (yeah it’s a mouthful hence the acronym), we have the two iconic “goons” from two classic video game series going head to head inside the Back2Gaming arena. On the blue corner we have Mario‘s worst nightmare (for the sheer number at least) whenever King koopa decides to kidnap the plumbers princess, the Goombas!
On the red corner we have Mega Man‘s worst enemy (no not really) which has caused the most ridiculous player deaths in the whole series, the Mettaur!
So here’s a rundown of who are contenders are:
[tabs tab1="Goomba" tab2="Mettaur"]
When faced with the Goombas, one would easily assume that a player can easily pass through the area of the stage. However the level of embarrassment one would get if a Goomba successfully hits you (or even leads you to your death) is pretty scary. Yes they don’t have any teeth, yes they don’t have a shell which can serve as a runaway bullet of death for the plumber but a very well placed goomba slowly stomping towards any player can spell doom to any jump regardless of how skilled he/she thinks he/she is.
On the other hand we have the Mettaur. Megaman’s most common enemy in the series. This little minion can withstand ANY kind of attack our blue hero can dish out as long as it has it’s helmet down. As proven by the video below:
If you’re familiar to any megaman game, if you compare the Met against ANY megaman boss out there, the Met is far more impervious compared to ALL megaman bosses since you can use another boss weapon against them where the Met can just keep it’s helmet down and ignore whatever megaman throws at it (and laugh at his lame attempts to kill it). As long as it doesn’t push it’s helmet up and shoot it can even survive a nuclear blast (no proof of this though).
Considering the scales between the two, I would say that the winner in this face-off would be the Met.
- He can survive any kind of attacks his “arch enemy” can throw at him, literally
- He can lead Megaman to his death specially if he’s near a ledge
- A series of Mets can in fact destroy a player’s groove
- Often underestimated
- Has no strategic sense
- He can’t attack whenever he’s defending himself
