Robin of Loxley, better known as Robin Hood, has long been a major character in English folklore, second only perhaps to King Arthur. Unlike the Once and Future King, Robin existed outside the law, an equivalent to the antiheroes of modern pop culture. He was the leader of the Merry Men, a gang of outlaws who lived in the peaceful Sherwood Forest. Robin and his men would steal from rich lords and clergy, but kept very little of their gains for themselves, instead giving it to the poorer folk. Along with his friends Little John, Friar Tuck, and Will Scarlet, Robin foiled the Sheriff of Nottingham's efforts to bring him to justice, and wooed the fair Maid Marian.
Battle vs. Odysseus (by CuchulainSetanta)Edit
On an island somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea, Odysseus and his man have landed to gather supplies for their long voyage home. Finishing up, Odysseus monitors his crew as they pack up, when suddenly, an arrow flies over Odysseus' head, striking one of the sailors in the throat. Odysseus looks to see where the arrow came from, seeing Robin Hood on a nearby cliff top. Robin grins and doffs his cap to the warrior-king, as more Merry Men come out of hiding to raid the supplies.
Odysseus heads after Robin, anxious to take out the leader of these strange bandits. Heading into the woods, Odysseus notches his great bow and cautiously searches for Robin. Robin silently appears on a tree limb and takes aim with his longbow, but Odysseus, noticing the lack of animal noise, senses something amiss. He hits the ground just as Robin fires another shot, then fires on Robin, striking him in the leg.
Robin falls out of the tree, painfully pulling the arrow out of his leg. Odysseus hurls a javelin, but Robin rolls out of the way before it hits. Jumping back on his feet, he pulls out his quarterstaff, while Odysseus unveils his axe. Charging, Odysseus is hit in the chin by the staff, but recovers in time to block another blow. Odysseus swings again, cleaving the quarterstaff in two.
Angered, Robin tackles the warrior-king and draws his dagger, prepared to finish off Odysseus. He tries to stab Odysseus in the head, but he moves aside before it hits. Odysseus regains his bearings and shoves the outlaw off, drawing his sword in the process. Robin also draws his sword, and the two clash once again. However, with his shorter blade, Odysseus manages to make it through Robin's defenses, stabbing him through the heart.
Making his way back to his men, Odysseus finds they too have triumphed over the Merry Men. Taking stock of his losses, Odysseus sets out once more.
Like in the previous mythology match, Hercules vs. Cuchulain, the deciding factor seemed to be that, while Robin Hood is used to fighting more mundane opponents, Odysseus is able to hold his own against monsters and other fantastic threats, meaning he had more experience.
Battle vs. Conan The Barbarian (by KevlarNinja)Edit
Conan The Barbarian, well on a quest, has ended up in Sherwood forest. Unkown to Conan, Robin Hood, thinking that King John hired Conan to kill him, is aiming an arrow right at Conan's chest. He fires, but, in a rare instance, he misses! "Looks like I'm getting rusty." Robin says to himself. Conan looks up and then fires his own bow and arrow, which, not as surprisingly, misses Robin. Conan pulls out his Battle axe and charges at Robin Hood. Robin runs off and picks up his Quarterstaff. He blocks Conan a few times and even jabs him in the chest, but Conan chops the Quarterstaff in half with his axe. Lucky for Robin, Conan's axe get's stuck in the ground.
Robin and Conan both pull out there swords and shield, and start to duel. But soon, Conan chops Robin's Buckler in half! But Robin strikes back by stabbing Conan in the arm, who groans in pain. Robin runs off, with his sword stuck in Conan's arm. Conan pulls the sword out of his arm and pulls out the Dagger of Khosatral Khel.
Robin hides behind a tree and hears someone walking towards him. He takes out his Rondel Dagger. He comes out of hideing and stabs, but no one is there, so the dagger just gets stuck in the tree's trunk. Suddenly, Robin grunts and falls down, dead. Conan stabed him in the back. He raises the dagger in the air and yells in victory.
Winner: Conan The Barbarian
Battle vs. King Leonidas (by Wassboss)Edit
King Leonidas is making his way through a dense forest in search of the one they call Robin Hood. He has heard of this warrior who steals from the rich and gives to the poor. He himself has had money stolen by this man and he has come to kill him. However he is not the only one in the forest...
Robin Hood is hidden in a tree. He watches as leonidas walks past, notches an arrow and fires. However leonidas hears the bow strings being pulled and lifts up his shield the arrow bouncing off it. He turns to face his attacker but can’t see through the brush. Another arrow flies out and embeds itself in his arm. Leonidas pulls it out and throws his javelin at the tree.
It does not hit robin but the force at which it was thrown striking the trunk of the tree causes him to fall off his perch. He gets up and fires another arrow but again leonidas’s shield protects him. Robin runs off to find his other weapons with leonidas hot on his trail. He gets to a clearing and picks up his quarterstaff. He swings it a leonidas, but his armour stops the staff doing any damage.
Leonidas pulls out his dory and thrusts it forward scraping robin’s leg. Robin tries to hit him again but leonidas lashes forward with his shield knocking the staff out of his hands. He then tries to stab him with the spear but robin cuts it in half with his sword. Leonidas pulls out his short sword and swings it at robin.
Robin jumps out of the way and thrust forward with his own sword and grazes leonidas’s arm. Leonidas ducks under the blade and thrusts upward stabbing robin in the leg. He screams in pain and kicks leonidas in the head stunning him. He then pulls out his rondel dagger and buckler and duel wielding them. He fast and precise blows overwhelm leonidas and he is left with several gashes in his arms and legs.
Leonidas pushes forward with his shield and rams robin into a tree. He then stabs robin in the head ending his life. He stands up and with a cry of “SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARTA” walks off to find help for his wounds.
Winner: King Leonidas
King Leonidas won because his armour and shield stopped the arrows from doing damage and once in close range king leonidas dominated the physically weaker Robin Hood.
