Poseidon I think would win cos
1: gods aren't allowed in other god realm unless invited but Zeus's realm is Olympus and any god is allowed in there so Poseidon can attack but Poseidon has the sea and Zeus isn't invited so Zeus can't attack so hence piton would win

2: water is a conductor so Zeus would strike with lightening and Poseidon would fire water and then Poseidon would have electrical empowered water to hit Zeus with. :)


so Poseidon would win hands down I might change m mind feel free to challenge me but I will comment with a comeback unless I start supporting Zeus's side

"1: gods aren't allowed in other god realm unless invited but Zeus's realm is Olympus and any god is allowed in there so Poseidon can attack but Poseidon has the sea and Zeus isn't invited so Zeus can't attack so hence piton would win"

Uh, yeah, but since Zeus's realm is everywhere, can he not therefore go ANYWHERE?

"2: water is a conductor so Zeus would strike with lightening and Poseidon would fire water and then Poseidon would have electrical empowered water to hit Zeus with. :)"

Since Zeus is KINDA like a lightning god, two things.

a) but wouldn't the lightning water be essentially useless then (electric vs. electric = weak)
b) the lightning would be SUPER EFFECTIVE against posidon (electric vs. water = strong)

So yeah.

Also.

Zeus is the father of all gods, you'd think he'd know poseidons weaknesses.

"Even the gods who are not his natural children address him as Father, and all the gods rise in his presence."

My opponent has forfeited the round. This simply means that they do not contest what I have said, and that they have no further points.

Zeus wasn't the father of the gods, Kronos was. Zeus was just the child that wasn't eaten by Kronos, because he was saved by his mother. later Zeus created a poison that made Kronos throw-up the rest of his children, who were developing in his guts (being immoral) and when he threw them up, the gods joined Zeus, and dethroned the titans in a massive war.
