Fists, Gravity Hammer, Spiker, Bruteshot, Spike Grenade, and Fist of Rukt.
Brute Chieftain, Killing UNSC, Killing Elites
Tartarus is easily recognized by his silver fur, very deep voice, his distinctive "Mohawk", and the fact that he wielded the Fist of Rukt. His devotion and faithfulness to the Covenant and the Prophets is unwavering, and he strongly represents the general attitude of his entire race: rough, arrogant, and disdainful of the Sangheili. He was a powerful, aggressive, and intelligent leader who inspired both fear and respect in his Jiralhanae forces. Tartarus is also the nephew of Maccabeus, whom he killed on the bridge of Rapid Conversion in order to gain the position of the Chieftain of the Jiralhanae. Also, Sergeant Johnson refers to Tartarus as "Mr. Mohawk" on Halo 2's last mission, when talking to Thel 'Vadam.
Battle vs. Joseph Capelli (by Swg66)Edit
Capelli is walking through the ruins of a city with his wraith out. Tartarus appears on top of a ruined building, pulling out his spiker and firs's it at Capelli. Due to the spiker laking the loud bang of a gun shot, Capllei is hit in the shoulder and back, spinning around activating the wraith's sheild he opens fire on the building where the shot's came from. Tartarus ducks from the fire and grabs his brute shot. Capelli's sheild goes down and he stops firing taking this break in the action to pull the spike out. While he pulls the second spike out somthing his his wraith, destroying it then more explosion go off around him, Tartarus jumps down from the building firing more rounds at Capelli. Dropping his now useless wraith he pulls out his Bullseye and locks onto Tartarus and opens fire. But it doesn't seem to be hurting Tartarus and keeps firing at Capelli. Ducking behind and piece of concrete, Tartarus blasting away at it. There a break in the the blasts, standing up to get a look another blast throws him to the ground dropping the Bullseye. Capelli pulls out his Magnum and runs into a near by building. Tartarus drops the Bruteshot, and pulls out the Fist of Rukt ans walks after his "prey". Capelli is running through a hall way, he looks around at the decaying walls. He starting shooting the walls and ceiling. Tartarus walks down the halls looking for Capelli, hammer in hand, Capelli takes a quick look at his work and steps out of the hall, in plain site. Tartarus walks into the hall and sees Capelli, yelling he charges him. Capelli just stands there. When Tartarus is part way down the hall, Capelli detonates the charges, catching Tartarus in the blast and burying him in rubble. Capelli walks to the pile of stone and sneers at the stone, spits on it and turns to leave. However there's a blast sending stone and steel in every direction, throwing Capelli out of the building. Tartarus in alive cut, bruised and angry. Holding the First of Rukt his charges Capelli, Capelli try's firing at him but he's out of ammo. Pulling his combat knife he braces himself for impact. Tartarus however doesn't wait to get close and sends a shock wave from his hammer throwing Capelli into a wall. Tartarus then hit's him with the hammer, without the normal blast throwing him again. Now on his knees Tartarus walks up to Capelli and picks him up by the neck. Looking at him is disgust he throws him to the ground, rasing his hammer up over his head. Capelli looks up to see the massive hammer and quickly stabs Tartarus groin in quick repetition. Tartarus roars in pain stumbeling back and drops his hammer and falls to his knees. Capelli picks up the hammer and walks over to Tartarus. Looking up at his "prey" Tartarus sneers at Capelli and Capelli brings his own hammer down on him. Seeing that's he's still moving he hammer's away at the Tartarus over and over, leaving a great bloody mess on the ground. Capelli seeing that's he's finally fead spit's on his corpse muttering "piece of trash" and walks off dragging the hammer behind him.
WINNER: JOSEPH CAPELLI
While Tartarus was bigger, stronger and could both deal out and take more damage before dying, this lead to him acting more like an animal than warrior, charging into a fight without forethought. Capelli on the other hand could deal out damage and as long as he wasn't killed right out he could recover and come back to the fight. This combined with more refined weapons compaired to the powerful but innaccurate weapons of the Brutes lead to Capelli gaining the win. Addtionally unlike later Brute Chieftens, Tartarus did not have much armor or and energy sheild, meaning he had no defence other than his natural toughness.
Battle vs. Boba Fett (by Urbancommando77)Edit
Somewhere along the floodgate on Earth, Tartarus and three brutes patrol the area. Above the team was a brute sniper. The sniper spots Boba and three armored madolorian bounty hunters. The brute aims at a bounty hunter's head but before he could fire, another bounty hunter sneaks up behind him and fires his wrist laser through him.
Tartarus sees the hunter and pulls out a carbine. He aims up at the bounty huntr but before he can fire, the hunter fires an EE-3 at the brutes. "What was that?" One of the bounty hunters ask Boba. Boba doesn't say anything and signals the troopers forward. Tartarus aims again at the bounty hunter and fires. The shot blasts into the hunter's neck.
Boba and two of the bounty hunters move towards the flood gate. One of them stop and hand Boba his EE-3 and his dart. Boba aims at the brutes and fires right into ones head.
Tartarus and another brute pull out brute plasma rifles and charge at the mandolorians. The brute fire uncontrollably and quickly. Tartarus smacks Boba in the head with the plasma rifle. Boba shakes his head and burns up a brute.
Tartarus pulls out one of his spike grenade and throws it at a mandolorian. The grenade explodes and knocks him down. Tartarus then commands his troops to retreat to the phantom. Boba sighs and tells his men to move to the slave 1. The phantom and the Slave engage in combat in the sky. The side of the phantom opens and Tartarus fires his bruteshot into the Slave's engine, destroying it.
Boba gets up and limps over to examine the dead bodies. The phantom lands near them and Tartarus and his last brute grab their weapons. Tartarus roars and swings "The Fist of Rukt". He bolts towards the last surviving hunter. He breaks his ribs open and roars again.
Boba pulls out his vibroblade and charges at the other brute and slices into his neck.
Tartarus roars and swipes at Boba but misses. Boba pulls out his sacros and fires several rounds into Tartarus. He throws the sacros to the side. Boba slices Rukt out of Tartarus' hand. Tartarus roars and smacks Boba in the head. Boba kicks Tartarus in the neck.
Boba walks to the ruins of the Slave 1 and waits for help...
WINNER: BOBA FETT
Although Tartarus is strong in huge, Boba has better weapons and armor, giving him an important edge.
Battle vs. Samus Aran (by Wassboss)Edit
Samus Aran is blasting her way through a covenent cruiser. She has been hired by the UNSC to eliminate a brute chieften going by the name of Thorus. She wipes the blood off her visor and sends a group of grunts flying before turning to face a jackal sniper. She fires a missile at him, blowing him to kindom come. She is almost upon the main control where the Chiefiten is surrposed to be hiding. Just before she gets thier a group of 4 brutes exit the control room and charge at her gravity hammers in hand. Samus switches to her power beam and fires several shots into the brutes, managing to kill two of them. The other two make it to her unscathed and swing thier hammers but samus ducks under them with ease. She slides out her plasma whip and sends them flying with a quick slash. Switching back to her power beam she opens fire on her downed opponents, killing them.
Samus charges through the door to the control room to find the brute chiefiten sitting with his back to her, stroking some sort of gun. "Are you Throus" she says her voice muffeled by the helmet. The huge warrior sits silently for a few seconds before answering. "Yes i am" he growls and quick as a flash jumps out of his chair and fires off several shots from his fuel rod gun which samus narrowly avoids. "So you wanna play like that do you" she whispers to herself and sends two misslies flying towards him. Thorus leaps over the first one and blows the other one up with a blast from his fuel rod gun. He fires another shot from his rocket launcher, this time hitting samus square in the chest and sending her flying back into the the wall. Her armour absorbes all the damage however and she gets up completly unscathed. Thorus discards his fuel rod gun and takes out his spiker and opens fire on samus but the bullets just bounce off her armour. Samus laughes at his attempt and switches to her power beam and fires off several shots, striking the chieften in the chest but his armour stops it from doing much damage.
Realising that his ranged attacks are not going to do much the brute changes tatics. He takes his gravity hammer off his back and smashes it downwards knocking samus back a bit. She slides out her plasma whip and swings it in in a circle around her before smacking Thorus round the face with it. The Jiralhanae warrior grabs his face with his hands and shouts it pain. Samus takes this opportunity to swing with her whip again this time leaving a gash in her opponents leg. Thorus grabs his leg in pain this time, igonring the pain in his face. Samus gets ready to swing her whip again but before she can Thorus grabs her arm and flings her across the room. He then picks up his gravity hammer and charges at samus with the huge hammer held high over his head. Samus prepares for his strike and slides her whip back in, ready to fire her missiles when he gets to near to dodge them. However Thorus suddenly changes his attack and instead hurls a spike grenade at the female bounty hunter. The spikes dig into her armour and she tries to pull it off but it is firmly stuck. The grenade detonates and sends samus flying backwards again, smashing her off the wall and leaving a hole in her armour.
Samus lies on the floor, dazed and injured. The huge Jiralanae looms over her, gravity hammer in hand, a nasty look on his face. "Die demon" he snarls and starts to bring the hammer down on his fallen opponent. Suddenly samus errupts into the air, in a yellow ball of energy. She lifts the 8 foot tall alien 20 feet in the air, spinning furiously as she does. The brute can do nothing but scream as he is thrown off this ball of energy and flung into a nearby wall, with sevear burns. Samus lands gracefully on her feet and bombards the Cheifetens body with missiles till thier is nothing but red mush. Samus pumps her fist in the air in victory before walking back to her ship.
WINNER: SAMUS ARAN
While Tartarus was larger and naturally stronger, Samus had far more advanced technology augmenting her speed, strength and durability. That, along with her arsenal that greatly out did that of the Brute chieftain in almost every area, made this an easy win for her.
Battle vs. RAAM (by Tomahawk23)Edit
No battle written
This was a considerably easy win for RAAM, as his arsenal was generally superior, and dominated in intelligence.
