Hey! First one of these commissioned by BeigePaladin

This is a light speed battle of blades between Asuna from Sword Art Online, Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening and Mikasa from Attack on Titan. Between the three, I'd say that Lucina is probably on top and Asuna on the bottom with Mikasa in that in between spot where she could go ether way with Asuna. I think Asuna be weakest mostly cause the other two are the only ones with real battle experience, having to fight and kill on a regular basis with Mikasa even forced to fight large enemies where as Asuna, as far as can be told from the anime, has never actually killed anyone like Kirito and thus I still think wouldn't have the stomach for it in the event of a battle where she could actually get hurt or killed. Thus it really be a battle between Mikasa and Lucina which, as much as I like Mikasa, Lucina is the one who has the ability to learn magic and Mikasa, if she loses her maneuver gear, is alot less effective then if Lucina lost her sword.

Lucina definitely carries in strength followed by the augmented Asuna but depending on terrain Mikasa could literally fight circles around them, in a forest or city arena she would be impossible to catch by grounded opponents

Idk, we never saw the fight but we do know that Lucina has survived a fight with Grima, and she was fighting by herself.

I think you badly misjudged Asuna in this.  She was on the front lines for pretty much the entire two years during which Sword Art Online ran (the game, not the anime), and every single fight was life or death.  The battles may not have been with her physical body, but that wouldn't have mattered if she had lost - she would still have died.  Yes, granted, she didn't actually kill any players, but as shown, she was involved in fighting the Laughing Coffin guild and took down several of them without killing them.

Plus, her reasons for fighting shouldn't be discounted.  She overcame paralysis with willpower alone, which should have been impossible (Kayaba explicitly stated this) in order to throw herself in the way of a blow that would have killed Kirito, and, like him, she's the kind of person who can't ignore others in trouble.

Honestly, to a large degree, I think this battle would be up to luck; Asuna is clearly skilled enough to take people trying to kill her down without killing them.

My thoughts are much the same, Asuna is no pushover (unless this was her IRL body there and thus not based off her game stats....but it's probably not the case, so it's largely irrelevant), even if she's never killed an actual human being (...well, unless you actually regard the web version of the light novel as canon and decide to stick with that, in which case she was the one who killed Kuradeel rather than Kirito doing it) she's had at least a couple legitimate duels within SAO and I'm sure has had her share of fights with the likes of Laughing Coffin and other PKers, I can't actually remember if she was at the raid on Laughing Coffin or not, though I don't see why she wouldn't have been >_> But yeah, Asuna would definitely be just fine here, I admit I don't know anything about the Attack on Titan character, but I think Asuna would probably be pretty close to Lucina in terms of skills and overall experience with combat...and quite likely superhuman to boot if she's based off of and using her in-game stats.

love the scene here. the sense of motion and anticipation is excelent, though, honestly, gonna have to disagree with your analysis entierly here :P

Asuna may have the lowest kill count, but she also has the advantage of having pretty explicit super powers* (able to match the strength of things like the skull reaper or gleameyesl, able to run a mile in less than a minute, able to stab faster than a bullet etc) plus magic equipment and fancy magic attack techniques, plus being in the middle in terms of experience
 Lucina would likely come second due in part to her fantasy bloodline giver her lower level super-human powers, her glowy magic sword of doom and the fact she's got by far the most experience of the lot - having been involved in constant war since she was a toddler, so I'd say second place/possible winner here
and as badass as Mikassa is, she has the downside of being from the most realistic series and thus being the most realistic human in terms of abilities and the like, as well as being the lowest down in terms of actual experience, what with having 2 months out of training beneath her belt compared to asuna's 2 years in a death game where she was forced to fight titan sized monsters for survival on a near daily basis, and Lucina fighting this</href>. her one advantage is the manoeuve gear, but they're fighting somewhere without convinient swinging terrain for her to make use of it XD

nevertheless, still a nice thing to see :3

* unless this is her real-life version cosplaying as her sao avatar but I digress XD

Ehhh, I'd still put Asuna down at the bottom of the three, again, in a situation like this where she's fighting trained killers, she, as you pointed down bellow, would try hard to not kill them which would be her problem: she doesn't want to kill where as Lucina and Mikasa could, thus she would be holding back and they wouldn't.

Also, speaking for terrain, I probably should have added some columns cause I imagine that terrain piece in my head. XD

*SPOILERS* 

Funnily enough, the newest episodes of SAO may have proven Asuna to have killed someone in the game. But my annoying nitpicking aside, Great pick. I do believe Lucina would win that fight.

They hint it but never show it or her own guilt. Then again, the series focuses mostly on Kirito and Sinon right now so its still possible.

nope, asuna has explicitly never killed anyone.

she did, however, defeat 9 members of laughing coffin without killing them, so its hardly like she's unable to fight humans, she just dosen't like too
