Here are some things I'd like to note about them both
Infected is a skeleton, obviously, while Yuffle (who is rather young) is one of millions of lunamarians, a race of Cat-like humanoids capable of quick learning and responsible for extreme technical advances, using simple metals and alchemy to developing the first laser based weapons (Think of creatures similar to Giegue's race from earthbound).
Character-wise, both can be considered rampaging monsters driven by Rage (Infected) and guilt (Yuffle), who will mercilessly hunt down their target and will liquidate them at all costs. Infected uses a cleaver he was able to find somewhere while Yuffle was given a katana by the heretics who had her brainwashed into a guilt-driven maniac, which capable of cutting dimensions and tear the fabric of space & time. In addition to this, yuffle is also capable of teleportation and spatial manipulation (which can act as a makeshift telekinesis or be used to outright erase an area of space).
However, One key difference that separates yuffle from infected is what her bloodline grants her. due to being in the linoma bloodline (and hence a grandchild to the blind God's avatar nexo), she was born with a existential tie between her and the harbinger, a crimson moon which has said to bring havoc across galaxies and awaken Gods of destruction wherever it goes, before becoming apart of her being, as you can guess, Yuffle is essentially a vessel for an eldritch God by Blood, yet hardly can even understand how it works. however, with the harbinger's assistance, Yuffle's guilt-driven mission to terminate humanity and rejuvenate her incarcerated younger sister Lilyatzu would have been successful if the player didn't prevent her from doing so. Yuffle essentially is capable of using the following techniques:
Dimensional shining blade beam - a technique in which she requires focusing, in which she must patiently draw her blade and do an overhead slash, infusing her brain power with the sword, and thus releasing a shockwave. this can be done fairly quick - 275 DMG
Dimensional Stab - a technique in which she open a rift and then stabs her blade into it. more rifts open from the floor as blades begin to emerge from it - 100 DMG
Dimensional cuts - Using her weapon's main ability, yuffle can create rifts in reality by cutting them open, allowing her to split space in two. - 300 DMG
Eldritch blast - a personal technique in which she fires a highly focused finger beam, taking 5 seconds to charge. this very arcane finger bullet will a good distance before firing four colossal blasts of pure arcane energy infused with eldritch aura, melting anything in it's path - 2500 DMG (the highest DMG'ing technique in her attacks so far)
Writhe - a rather simple technique used by all eldritch horrors, yuffle is capable of generating 6 tentacles on her back to stab into her target, or alternatively combine her rifts with eldritch energy to have tentacles emerge from them, grabbing and ripping apart anything that moves. - 60 DMG
Mindwarp - by locking her eyes with another person, Yuffle can focus her own eldritch energy to mess with someone's head, often leaving them paralyzed or even turning them insane to the point of screaming incomprehensibly on the floor. You cannot comprehend the true form of the harbinger's attack. - 350 DMG
Telekinesis - a rather simple technique. by using her katana and pointing it at someone while focusing, she can use it as a sort of clicker, allowing her to drag people around with it and throw it around.
Enchant - If given enough time, yuffle can enchant her own katana with scrolls, capable of inflicting "charred" (essentially setting someone on fire), "cursed" (lowers MAX HP), or "shocked" (paralyzing a foe for at least a brief moment.)
ATK - 725 + DMG
DEF - 870
SPD - 25 - 50 (5 steps per second when walking with 10 steps while running)
Of course, Yuffle is still a work in progress as a character, and while there is a lot more to her than just another maniac, I just wanted to see if she could hold her own against infected.
Infected didn't just get some random cleaver, it used to be Jacob's axe but it got worn down, anyways, the cleaver is literally called "God breaker" and the punch this thing packs is incomprehensible to anything that isn't at least a minor god, now, idk who yuffle is, but it sounds like she is just a vessel for a God, not to mention I believe God breaker does 40k dmg or so, so he could 3 shot her, not to mention he has lots of abilities that either match, over power, are the same, or are a different version of hers, therefore I believe infected would win fairly easily
And for anyone who is wondering WHY I'm even doing this poll, It's for multiple reasons:
Invoker, which is based on Mythology, Alchemy, and Modernized steampunk (a mix of modern tech with more implication towards advanced steam/thermal powered machines), could really use an intense final boss, one that requires skill and quick thinking. Infected seems like someone who would just straight up charge in and break things, which is why I believe yuffle could beat him. her young, agile body enables for high stamina and dodging capability, and considering you fight her AFTER the jester mastermind, Ridley parker (Tarot IV) means she must have been forced to learn A LOT by her fellow heretics (meaning she probably has katana techniques that would make infected go "GOD DAMN IT!"). on the topic of her being a heretic, the fact that the player character and their key party member, Lyn Linoma, has known her as an innocent girl and now seeing her go berserk and forced to join a gang of Satan worshippers out of guilt at a young age (which is very screwed up considering the implications of such a thing) is something that is bound to break a player's heart. (If I can do it right)
I wanted to simply test the limits of the new infected, to see if he is capable of taking on eldritch beings considering he does have the God breaker and unrivaled defense ability.
@Extraocringe I like the feedback you gave me, and thanks for correcting me on the whole "Infected got some random cleaver" thing. as for yuffle, yes, she is a vessel for an eldritch God, a young one that is incapable of understanding what lurks beneath her soul (meaning she can't do much with her eldritch blood), and didn't ever consider harm towards anyone until she was seized by the heresy group known as the black-iron empire, being brainwashed and turned into a chaotic, somewhat childish, and highly destructive mess.
Again, I do plan to flesh out her entire character, as with everyone in the series, I just need some time to properly do so.
Oh u made her? She seems really cool im exited to see how she turns out, she giving me real you you vibes. Anyways, either way I still believe infected would win because even if she beats his base form he always has black being and soul harbringer, but considering she may even just take out his base form is very impressive considering she herself is not a God, but great work! :D
Touhou* I only noticed this an hour later lol but anyways this is really good stuff if u end up getting the game fully released I would totally buy it
What do you think?
