The Aztecs were warriors of God.
— Eder Saul Lopez, Aztec combat historian

Jaguars were an elite military order in Aztec society. The life of Aztec warriors was one of constant battle, as the primary purpose of this continual warfare was to take prisoners to be sacrificed to the gods. At age 17, young Aztec men became warriors and entered formal military training. To achieve adult status, a boy had to capture his first prisoner. After capturing four enemies, he was eligible to become a Jaguar. The Jaguars, along with the similar Eagle warriors, were the only elite military unit that did not restrict membership to solely the nobility, as commoners who had proven themselves in battle were also permitted. The Jaguar warriors moved quickly and fluently.

Battle vs. Zulu Warrior (by Wassboss )Edit

A Zulu warrior is walking through the plains of Africa, hunting a zebra. He readies his Isijula to throw at the unsuspecting animal. Suddenly the zebra is startled by something and runs off into the distance. The Zulu rubs his head wondering why the beast ran. He senses something is not right and hits the ground.

A Tlacochtli lands in the grass, right next to his head. He stands and sees an Aztec jaguar standing on top of a rock. He pulls out his Iwisa and throws it but the throwing club bounces off the Aztec’s helmet. The Aztec readies another arrow but the Zulu jumps into the grass and starts to crawl towards his attacker.

The Aztec looks up and sees that the Zulu has gone. He looks around but he cannot see the Zulu through the long grass. Suddenly an Isijula strikes him in the arm, easily penetrating the cotton armour. He looks down and sees the Zulu crouched in the grass.

He pulls out his Tematlatl and loads up a rock. He jumps down from the rock, landing in front of the Zulu. He hurls the stone at point blank range, but still misses. The Zulu pulls out his Iklwa and thrusts forward missing the Aztec by inches. The Aztec throws his sling aside and pulls out his Maquahuitl.

He swings the Maquahuitl at the Zulu, catching him off guard and several gashes on his unprotected chest. The Zulu, having been taught to ignore pain, thrusts his spear forward again, this time stabbing through the cotton armour and leaving a small cut on the Aztec’s abdomen. The Aztec swings his Maquahuitl and the Zulu tries to block with his spear but the force of the swing shatters the Iklwa, rendering it useless.

The Zulu pulls out his last weapon; the Zulu axe and swings it cutting the Maquahuitl in half. The Aztec pulls out his knife and tries to stab the Zulu but the Zulu jumps to the side and swings the axe almost cutting of the Aztec’s hand.

The Aztec swings his knife and cuts the Zulu’s wrist, causing him to drop the axe. He then stabs his knife through the Zulu’s chest and into his heart. With a quick yank the heart comes out and he shows it too the Zulu, before the Zulu collapses dead on the floor.

Expert's OpinionEdit

The Aztec jaguar won because he hit harder at a longer range meaning he could finish the Zulu off before he could get close enough to attack.

Battle vs. Gladiator and Ninja (by Wassboss)Edit

A Gladiator is sitting in the middle of a forest. He is being transported to another city as he is the best gladiator in the whole of Italy. He is being watched over by a guard, to make sure he does not try to escape. They have lit a fire and are sitting around it, with the guard cooking some meat. However neither of them know they are being watched.

In the trees above a ninja is watching the two men eat. He has been has been hired to kill the gladiator by a mysterious hooded person. The ninja knows that he must take out the guard as well otherwise it will become two against one. He loads up a dart into his blowgun and gets ready to fire it at the guard.

Meanwhile an Aztec jaguar is sitting on a log, sharpening his knife. He was brought to this place by Romans, hoping to use him in the coliseum. However he escaped his captors and managed to grab his weapons before running off into the forest where he has been living ever since. He finishes sharpening his knife and notices a light in the distance. Picking up his other weapons he heads towards it.

The ninja fires his blowgun and hits the guard in the jugular, killing him almost instantly. The gladiator springs up and looks around but he can’t see anything. The ninja fires another dart, but the gladiator hears it and jumps to the side. He looks up into the trees but the ninja has moved position. The gladiator feels a sharp pain in his back; he reaches back and pulls out two Shurikans. The gladiator runs over to a cart, to get out his weapons.

Meanwhile the Aztec has reached the edge of the clearing and watches as the gladiator walks around the clearing, sling in hand. The Aztec pulls out his Atlatl and loads up an arrow. He runs screaming into the clearing and throws the projectile. The gladiator turns and the Tlacochtli hits him in the head, a killing blow if not for his helmet. The gladiator pulls out the projectile and uses a sling to throw a stone at the Aztec.

However like the arrow the Aztec’s helmet stops the stone from doing much damage. The Aztec pulls out his own sling and loads up a rock. The gladiator does the same and they both throw the rock at the same time. The rocks collide in mid air, shattering into a million pieces. The gladiator pulls out his trident and charges at the Aztec who jumps to the side and launches a stone at a spot behind the gladiator.

The gladiator laughs at the Aztec’s bad aiming and prepares for another charge. However he hears a noise behind him and turns to see the ninja, sword unsheathed ready to strike. The gladiator parries the sword with his trident, and stabs the ninja in the knee. The ninja cries out in pain and swings his sword, cutting the gladiator’s arm. The gladiator remembers the Aztec and turns his head slightly to see the Aztec, holding a Maquahuitl. The gladiator punches the ninja in the face and the assassin stumbles back. He then throws his net over the aztec, getting the aztec in a tangle and temporarily incasipates him.

He feels another sharp pain in his back, and turns to find the ninja, Shurikans in hand. The gladiator charges forward again but the ninja is ready and slices the trident in half with his sword. The gladiator throws the trident away and, pulling out his own sword, stabs forward. The ninja easily dodges this attack and hits the gladiator’s sword with such force, it is sent flying out of his hands.

The ninja delivers a series of fast stabs and slices leaving a few cuts on the gladiator’s chest. The gladiator clutches his chest in pain. Suddenly he remembers his Cetus and taunts the ninja. The ninja gets frustrated and charges at the cocky gladiator, sword held out and ready to kill. The gladiator waits until the ninja gets too close to dodge, then swings his fist forward, like a heavyweight boxer, and hits the ninja full in the face. The ninja falls to the ground with a thud, dropping his sword in the process.

The gladiator retrieves his Cetus and walks back to his unconscious opponent. He holds the sword above his head, ready to plunge into the ninja’s unprotected heart. Suddenly something hits the gladiator in the head very hard. The gladiator is sent flying but his helmet protects him from damage. Discarding the now useless helmet, the gladiator puts on his scissor and turns to face his attacker.

The aztec stands grinning, his Maquahuitl missing some shards. The gladiator charges forward and thrusts the scissor forward, stabbing through the cotton armour. The aztec winches in pain and hits the gladiator with the handle, stunning him. He then swings the Maquahuitl and it gets stuck in the gladiator’s neck. The aztec yanks it out and the gladiator fall down dead. The aztec puts down his Maquahuitl and takes out his knife. He bends over the carcass of the gladiator and starts to remove the heart.

Meanwhile the ninja comes too and stands up, holding his jaw. He sees the aztec cutting into the gladiator, his kill. The ninja pulls out his Kusarigama and, walking over to the aztec, and swings the scythe end, leaving a small gash in his unprotected arm. The Aztec looks back, and the ninja swings the ball end, hitting the jaguar in the face and sending him sprawling.

The aztec scrambles to his feet, and dodges another swing from the Kusarigama. He tries to retrieve his Maquahuitl but the ninja sees what he is doing and swings his kusarigama, forcing the aztec to jump back to avoid the blow. The ninja then picks up the Maquahuitl and throws it into the bushes. The aztec uses this distraction to lunge forward and stab the ninja’s hand, causing him to drop his weapon. The aztec mimics the ninja and throws the Kusarigama into the brush.

The aztec lunges forward again but the ninja is ready and jumps over the aztec, landing behind him. He then punches the aztec in the back of the head, and reveals his Nekote’s. The aztec turns and the ninja scratches his cheek with his nekote’s. The aztec ignores this minor injury and hits the ninja with the knife handle knocking him down. The ninja suddenly remembers his sword, which he dropped after being knocked out by the gladiator.

The ninja picks up some dirt and throws it at the aztec, getting him right in the eyes. The aztec drops his knife and starts franticly rubbing his eyes. The ninja scrambles towards his sword and picks it up. With a cry which could shatter glass, the ninja jumps forward and slams his sword right through the Aztec’s head, penetrating his skull and killing him. The ninja sheathes his sword and walks off into the night.

Expert's OpinionEdit

The ninja won because of his combination of; stealth, steel weapons and agility. The Aztec came second because while he had better armor than the ninja, his weapons were ether inaccurate or primitive. The gladiator came last because while he had better armor, it was only on his head. This left his chest completely open to attack and with his charge in head first and swing your weapon as hard as you can approach; he was easily overpowered and killed.

Battle vs. Abenaki Indians (by Ethandabomb)Edit

Abenaki: BlueBlueBlueBlueBlue

Aztec Jaguar: RedRedRedRedRed

Five Abenaki Indians are stalking a buck in the woods from the top of a hill. Suddenly the buck drops dead to the ground, and an Aztec Jaguar comes out of the thicket to retrieve the stone for his tematlatl. An Abenaki sends an arrow into the clearing, instantly killing the jaguar. Red

Another jaguar rushes to his fallen comrade, only to be narrowly missed by another speeding arrow. The jaguar quickly retreats into the forest. Two Abenakis sneak down the hill to surprise the remaining jaguars. As they sneak downhill, a jaguar drops from a tree cutting an Abenaki's throat with his tecpatl. Blue

The other Abenaki quickly unsheathes his knife, and the two circle eachother. The jaguar lunges, and the Abenaki slices him in the forearm. Taken by surprise, the jaguar stumbles backward into a tree root and trips. The Abenaki quickly advances, and slits his throat. Red

As the Abenaki backs away, he is bludgeoned in the back of the head by a maquahutl wielding jaguar, shattering his skull. Blue

The jaguar swiftly sprints back to his fellow warriors, who are hiding in a low shrub. An Abenaki sees the jaguar enter the bush, and fires an arrow, killing one jaguar. Red

The Abenaki takes another shot, that hits a jaguar, but the jaguar's armor prevents it from being a kill blow. The jaguar pulls the arrow out of his armor, and the two jaguars retreat out of the shrub, and split up to flank the remaining Abenakis. The Abenakis, completely unaware, fire volley after volley into the bush. One Abenaki is sent to the bush for scouting, while the others keep their bows trained on the thicket. An Aztec sneaks up behind the two Indians, and kills one with his atlatl from long range. Blue

The other Abenaki rushes the jaguar with his spear. The jaguar quickly drops the atlatl, and takes out his tematlatl. He misses the Abenaki, and the Abenaki skewers the jaguar with his spear. Red

The other jaguar, hearing his companion cry out, brandishes his maquahuitl. The Abenaki turns to face him, and charges with his spear. The jaguar sidesteps and decapitates the Abenaki. Blue

The other Abenaki, having found no sign of the jaguars in the thicket, returns to find his two friends dead, and an Aztec Jaguar standing over them. The Abenaki, in a rage, takes out his war club. The two square off on top of the hill. The jaguar takes a wild swing with his maquahuitl, and the Abenaki hits the jaguar, effectively breaking the jaguars arm. The jaguar then takes out his tecpatl. The Abenkai arcs his war club over his head, and the jaguar attempts to block it with his tecpatl. The force of the warclub is too much for the small knife, and the jaguars arm buckles. The Abenaki swings his club low, and catches the jaguar in the knee. The jaguar falls to his knees, unable to remain standing. The Abenaki throws his warclub into the thicket, and takes out his knife. The Abenaki takes the jaguar helmet off of the Aztec, and drives his knife into the jaguar's throat. Red The Abenaki lets out a war call, and goes to fetch the dead deer in the clearing.

Expert's OpinionEdit

The superior Abenaki weapons proved better than the outdated Aztec weapons. A few major success weapons for the Abenaki were the warclub and bow and arrow. These dealt death more efficiently than any other weapon in the batte. One major success weapon for the jaguar was the maquahuitl, which killed many of the Abenakis. Overall, the newer technology, the bow vs. the atlatl, made it an Abenaki victory

Battle vs. Comanche (by Utter noob)Edit

The Aztec Jaguar sets down his shield and Tlacochtli down as he sat on the riverbank. He dipped his hands in the clear water and began to wash his face when he heard the stomping of a nearby animal. He flicked his hands and reached for his Tlacochtli. The Jaguar warrior couldn’t believe his eyes. The Comanche rode his horse alongside the other bank of the river, dismounting for water. The Jaguar had not been spotted yet so he quickly readied an Atlatl to slay the beast the enemy had nearby. With great force he hurled the Atlatl at the horse, in an arc fashion. It soared through the air and slammed into the horse’s throat. The creature fell to the ground, dead. The Comanche was startled, and searched franticly for his bow. He found it as another Atlatl collided with the dirt to his side. He quickly readied an arrow and returned fire, scoring a hit on the Jaguar’s chest as he was preparing to throw another Atlatl. The Aztec dropped the projectile and tore the arrow from his chest.

Fortunately for the Aztec, the arrow barely penetrated the cotton armor. The Comanche fired another arrow, missing the Jaguar by a mere inch. Operating on instinct, the Aztec quickly searched for his shield, lifting it just in time to defend from another arrow.

The Aztec grabbed a Tepoztōpīlli, wielding it in his right hand and his shield in the left. He charged at the Comanche, who fired an arrow at the warrior’s foot, but it missed and got swept away by the water.

The Comanche lifted his lance and charged, thrusting it at the Jaguar. The Jaguar jumped to the right and thrusted with his spear, leaving a small cut on the Comanche’s shoulder. The Comanche ignored the pain and thrusted again with his lance, easily penetrating the Aztec’s shield. The Comanche shoved the Aztec back and spun the blade, cutting the head off of the Tepoztōpīlli spear.

The Aztec Jaguar unsheathed his Tecpatl he had hidden and rushed towards the Comanche. The Comanche thrusted, but the Aztec anticipated this and slid beneath it cutting the Comanche’s hand and then kicking him in the stomach. The Comanche stumbled and dropped his lance, enough time for the Aztec to get to his feet. The Aztec ran back to the other end of the river as the Comanche grabbed his War Hawk and gave chase.

The Aztec slid and grabbed his Maquahitl before vanishing into the forest. The Comanche continued his chase, but now he had no idea where the Jaguar warrior was. He looked around, watching for anything that moved. Suddenly, a branch snapped behind him and he turned, slamming the War Hawk blade into the Jaguar’s shield, making it look like Swiss cheese. The Aztec kicked the Comanche back and dropped his shield so he could wield the Maquahitl with both hands.

He slammed it vertically at the Comanche, who jumped back to avoid getting hit. The Aztec then brought the sword-club up quickly, cutting part of the Comanche’s cheek. The Comanche striked the Aztec Jaguar in the arm, making the Aztec roar louder than any jaguar, both man and beast. The Comanche let go of the War Hawk and drew his scalping knife. The Jaguar tore out the War Hawk and rearmed himself with the Tecpatl.

The Comanche slashed twice, each hitting the cotton armor and not drawing blood. The Aztec slashed the Comanche’s cheek, making another wound on the Comanche’s face draw blood. The Comanche, out of desperation, thrusted with his knife, aiming at the Aztec’s throat. The Jaguar parried with the Tecpatl and delivered a swift kick to the Comanche’s side, sending knocking him into a bush. The Jaguar leapt onto the Comanche and stabbed him several times in the throat, reducing him to a bloody pulp.

Expert's OpinionEdit

The Aztec Jaguar was victorious in this battle thanks to his more powerful weapons at short range, and his cotton armor which made the Comanche's best weapon, the bow, was unable to as much damage as it normally would to an enemy.

Battle vs. Australian Aboriginal (by Deathblade 100)Edit

The Aztec Jaguar is walking through the forest looking for threats to his empire. As he walks, he hears a strange noise in the distance. As he gets closer to the source, the Aztec Jaguar notices an Aboriginal sitting on a log playing a didgeridoo. The Aztec readies his Atlatl and fits a Tlacochtli to it before hurling it towards the Aboriginal. The projectile misses and startles the Australian. The Aboriginal grabs his Woomera and launches a throwing spear at the Aztec, but misses. The Aboriginal grabs his Sawfish club and swings it at the Aztec, puncturing the cotton armour. The Aztec unslings his Maquahuitl and rushes towards the Australian. The Aboriginal grabs his Wooden Shield and raises it to parry the Aztec's Maquahuitl. The Aztec swings his sword-club at the Sawfish Club, cutting it in half. The Aboriginal runs off with the Aztec in close pursuit. The Aboriginal throws his boomerang at the Aztec, just as the Mexican starts to whirl the Tematlatl sling around his head. The boomerang hits the Aztec in the chest, before the stone from the Tematlatl smashes into the shield and knocks it out of the Aboriginal's grasp. The Aboriginal grabs his Stone Hatchet and strikes the Aztec's hand, forcing the Mexican to drop his Maquahuitl. The Aboriginal charges towards the Aztec, hell bent on finishing him. The Aztec kicks the Aboriginal in the abdomen, knocking the Australian over. The Aztec walks upto the Australian, before pulling out the Tecpatl sacrificial dagger and cutting the Aboriginal's heart from his chest.

The Aztec raises the Tecpatl and the still beating heart in the air and yells "For the Gods!" in victory.

Expert's Opinion Edit

The Aztec Jaguar won due to more combat experience and better weapons than the Australian Aboriginal. While the Aboriginal was fierce and had dangerous close quarters weapons and effective armour, his lack of fighting experience and lack of killing weapons cost him the win. In short the Aboriginals only fought to right a wrong that had happened to them; the Aztecs fought to expand their empire and take prisoners.

Battle vs Maharlika (by Filipino Warrior)Edit

Deep in the foresta groupe of Aztec Jaguars (6) are roaming the area, trying to get familiar with the landscape for expansion and settlement. Meanwhile a group of Maharlikas(6) sent to collect treasure in the area.

One of the Aztec Jaguars see's the group and convinces the others for them to use as captured slaves to gain more status for themselves. The Aztecs prepare themselves, with one of them hurling an arrow from his atlatl. The arrow nearly hits one of the Maharlikas alerting the entire group.

They realize it an ambush and seek cover behind some of the trees. As the Aztec Jaguars charge with their swords and sheilds, one of them swings the Macuahuitl for the head of the Maharlika, which he dodges and uses his Talibong to thrust into the Aztec(5). It pierces the armour with ease and kills him.

The Aztec uses the sling and hurls the stone into the face of the Maharlika. It doesn't kill him, but gives the enough time for the Aztecs partner to shove his tepoztopilli into the Maharlika(5).

The Maharlika shoots his poision darts at one of the Aztec Jaguars, the first two hit the armour which made no damage at all. However his friend shoots an arrow from his panna into the face of the Aztec, killing him (4).

The Aztec Jaguar with the atatl fires a short spear and manages to hit one of the Maharlikas in the chest (4). The Aztec then picks up his tepoztopilli and tries to ram into one fo the remaining Maharlikas. This only ends up running into the sheild which the obsidian on the spear breaks off, causing the spear to deflect off.

The Maharlika with the sheild then strikes the Aztecs head in a single stroke causing his skull to split in half. (3) The last three Jaguar warriors then arm themselves with Macuahuitls and chimalis, and charge into there enemies.

The Maharlika with two swords face one of the charging Aztecs. The charging Jaguar warrior swings his club while running, trying to aim for his ches or neck, but the Maharlika uses his swords block and dodge the blow caussing him to duck under and strike one of the Aztecs legs with his right sword.

This causes the Aztec running to trip while the other two who were behind him also charge for the Maharlika with two swords. Meanwhile the Maharlika with the blow darts pulls out his sword and slashes the Aztec who tripped across the belly, causing a deep cut across the midsection, which then kills him(2)

The two Jaguars who charge after the Maharlika tries to swing one of their club/sword at him, only leading the Maharlika to counter attack and slash his left arm. However, the other Aztec uses his sheild to defend rather then to attack offensively.

The other two Maharlikas come to join the fight, which one of them calls the name of the Maharliks with two swords. The Mahrlika then turns around to see who it is, which gives a chance to the aztec with the slashed arm to swing his Macuahuitl on the back of the Maharlikas head. The Maharlika then dies from blunt concussion (2)

This angers one of the Maharlikas and causes him to chop the Aztec with the injured arm head off, which then rolls into one of the bushes.(1)

The Last Aztec with the chimali and Macuahuitl then stands by himself against the two Maharlikas. One of the Maharlika pulls out his sibat, but the other one tells him to go back to the boat. The Maharlika then obeys the other ones orders and then runs back into the swamp. (1) The last Maharlika then pulls out his own sword (ginunting) and Kalasag (sheild). Both warriors then engage in combat.

The Aztec swings feriously with club causing the Maharlika to keep some distance even with his sheild. But eventually the Aztec then leaves himself for an opening causing the Maharlika to rush in and close the distance with his sheild to stop the full on swing from the Aztecs sword. This gives the Maharlika the oppurtunity to slash the chest, neck, and both arms. Leaving the Aztec to be a pile of body parts on the ground.

The Maharlika then swings the blood off the sword and sheaths it, also packing up his other belongings and heads into the forest, to join his comrade at the beach where the boat is.

Winner: Maharlika
