who would win a a battle of detectives, my team of... Skulldugery Pleasant, Near, Mello and Valkyrie
Debate Rounds (5)
first round is acceptance
every other round plays out like our last debate did
I would also ask if you are basing Sherlock Holmes off the novels or movies, my assumptions are off the movies.
i shall start with why my detective team would trump your's in a straight up detectives battle, Near and mello have succeeded L in every way, thy survived where he died, they captured the criminal where he failed, they actually captured the criminal in half the time it took L. Since they are actually alive at the end of their storyline and catch light, they win.
batman is countered by Skullduggery pleasant who is a world class martial artist, a detective of a grand scale who gets called on by the leaders of the Whole planet, "not just Gotham city", solving crime after crime and who just happens to be the key elemental magic user in all of Ireland. I'm sure your Batarang would do "lots" of damage against a fire breathing tornado. If he actually survived that i would give him props.
Conan shall be countered by the wonderful, beautiful and talented miss Valkyrie Cain, I mean, who do you think would win, A seven year old who can play soccer or the known destroyer of planets who helps skullduggery solve all of his cases by pointing him towards the clues before he even sees them. she could rip his head of before they started the case...
this is a detective battle but i could beat all of your characters before we start. but i won't beecause my characters can still outsmart yours...
"This is a man who uses drugs when he is bored, tends to becomes depressed, is rude, dismissive of the police and is even a bit lazy". this taken from the character analysis on yahoo answers. is he really trustworthy in a team where he is best working alone? He doesn't really have the best work ethic does he, I mean he starves himself on cases that lead to a lot of dead ends just because he seems to be close to a point of truth. what good is a detective on a low stomach.
my character are a detective team that is split up into two, two person cells, in inquiry and information team, this Being near and Mello, Their teamwork is legendary and they're deductive skills are far beyond matching Sherlock and Conan.
and the second team being a more hands on team. So this would be an interrogation and infiltration team. being able to change his appearance using a rune etched into his collarbone Skullduggery is a perfect infiltrator and could easily gain access to any spot required by changing into a high up member in the organisation, his skills in adaptation mean that he would not miss their personality traits either. The amazing Valkyrie is easily one of the most capable interrogations directors I have ever read about, her cunning, charming good looks and cut throat efficiency are the skills she employs to get a person to spill their secrets, and if they don't answer quick enough, their blood.
this is a fun but rather askew debate and I'm not sure who will win this one
It is pointed out in the Death-note manga character profiles that Near plays with toys as L played with sugar cubes, in the way of using toys to point out the major points in his plan. Like L makes sugar cube towers like a Three year old. Near only plays with rather creepy figurines to get across that he is a not so innocent childish prodigy and a more than capable N. Only using other task force members to hide himself from Kira. As for the detached part I have no Idea what you are talking about because Near throws himself into every investigation with all of his heart.
sure they are not the perfect match but they will get the job done. In the way that they did with the Kira case and caught the 4 year elusive Kira that even fooled and killed L.
watch what your members say to each other as Skullduggery may be there in disguise listening in
When I say Near is detached, I refer to his life skills, which according to your analysis of Sherlock, do matter. As well, Near has an initiative of 6/10.http://deathnote.wikia.com...
As to Skuldugerry as infiltrator, do you really believe this many skilled detectives couldn't see through that? As well, who would he imitate? Watari, a man who L knows so well to the point where he would be found out in minutes? Alfred, likewise for Batman. My team is a secretive lot, and I have no doubt that infiltration efforts would be doomed.
He is an Expert in his field and I am going to say that each of my members would Individually have no chance against him, but seeing as the Skulduggery/Valkyrie team is still stable I reckon they could easily take the one batman detective team down. I have enjoyed this debate as much as the last and do wish, as we will, to debate again in the future.
