Thousands of years later, the tribe was attacked by the Baterra, shapeshifting beings who killed many Skrall including most all the leader class Skrall. Only Tuma survived the attacks. They then moved south to avoid extinction and were later employed as Glatorians. Years later, Tuma, leader of the Skrall, ordered them to attack the Arena Magna during the Great Tournament, killing many Glatorian and Agori. Metus later convinced the Skrall and the Bone Hunters to join forces. After uniting they destroyed Tajun. Mata Nui entered the arena, and challenged Tuma to a fight for his friends' freedom. Tuma accepted the challenge and was eventually defeated by Mata Nui. Metus, who revealed himself as a traitor, later arrived in the city, and ordered all the Skrall and Bone Hunters to attack. Before they could launch their assault, a massive creature arose from the sands (greatly resembeling Malum). The Skrall believed it to be a Baterra attack and panicked, fleeing the arena. They encountered the Glatorian, and fought them. Five of the Glatorian, who had Elemental Powers, were able to defeat the army.
A Skrall notices a door in the wall, and opens it. When he enters, he sees a club against the wall, along with a sword and shield. Curious, he lays down his own club against the wall, and walks further inward to investigate. He hears a noise behind him, and turns to find the door closed and blocked with iron bars. He turns back and spots the Stalfos, sword and shield in hand.
The Skrall, surprised by the Stalfos, is unable to react before the Stalfos slices a gash into the side of his helmet. Gathering himself, the Skrall raises his shield in time to block the next few blows. The Skrall retreats and duels his opponent, eventually parrying a thrust from the Stalfos’s sword before running up the wall and landing to the side, striking at the Stalfos precisely where the hamstring would be on a flesh-and-blood opponent. The Skrall tries to decapitate the downed Stalfos, but it brings up its shield to block the blow. The shield shatters, and the Stalfos jumps to the side and picks up its club. It starts beating the Skrall back, pounding on the shield with the club until the Skrall realizes it’s now useless as a shield, and attempts to exploit the edges by throwing it at the Stalfos. It strikes the Stalfos’s hand, knocking the club out of it. The Skrall executes a combat roll to grab his club, and looks up as the Stalfos starts its jump attack. Reacting on instinct, the Skrall fires a Thornax from its sword and then throws it.
The combination blasts the Stalfos back, and pins it to the wall. The Skrall starts beating it in a wild frenzy with his club, until it burns away. The Skrall picks up the discarded weapons left by the Stalfos, and exits the now-open room.
Expert's Opinion Edit
The Skrall had a better ranged weapon, allowing him to decimate the more close-quarters focused Stalfos.
A Skrall warrior walks into a cathedral after recovering from his battle with the undead. He spots his target, Siegfried, meditating after killing another warrior. The Skrall drops his club, knowing that defeating this warrior will finally get him a name. Siegfried hears the noise, grabs the sword Requiem, and prepares for a fight.
The Skrall, eager for a kill, lunges and tries to finish Siegfried in a blow. He parries, and then strikes the Skrall. The two combatants fight, neither gaining the advantage, until the Skrall throws his shield. Siegfried brings Requiem down in a vicious overhand blow, cleaving the shield in half. The sword hits the ground hard, knocking it out of his hands. He then notices that the Skrall is holding both his sword and a club. The Skrall swings his club at Siegfried’s head. He rolls out of the way, and pulls his sword Faust out of the wall. He starts attacking the Skrall, using every move and stance in his arsenal. He eventually knocks the Skrall’s club out of his hands, and the Skrall retaliates by launching an explosive Thornax into Siegfried’s chest, knocking him across the room. Siegfried’s armor starts to glow blue.
The Skrall, advancing, notices this and stops, confused. Soul Calibur appears in Siegfried’s hand, and he rolls to his feet, delivering a powerful slash to the Skrall, who blocks and is stunned. Siegfried slashes the dazed Skrall again, denting his armor and knocking him over. Struggling up, the Skrall sees Siegfried bringing down a glowing blue Soul Calibur, trapping it in ice. Siegfried disposes of his dead opponent, and leaves the cathedral.
Expert's Opinion Edit
Siegfried has more training than the Skrall, and the Skrall’s shield was barely a match for his Zweihanders.
