( Fateful and Red hood walk in with a disappointed Aladdin)
Red hood: Would you stop sulking already, we have a prelude to do!
Aladdin: You try cheering up after getting taken out of a busty paradise!
Fateful: Don't worry we'll defiantly be taking a trip there soon, probably after this prelude
Aladdin: Ya mean it?!
Red hood: I... actually that place was fire let's do it!
Fateful: Alright men now let's get this prelude started.
Red hood: Everyone knows most demons can be a bit unruly; what with the eating of flesh, raping of women or men, killing of either, take overs of whole nations you name it. So it always helps to have a reliable exterminator around with firsthand knowledge of how these creatures operate to deal with those pests!
Aladdin: Luckily we have two such men right here: Guts the man who defies fate!
Fateful: And DMC Dante the Nephilim protector of the world!
( DMC Dante and Guts get teleported in)

Guts ( Stops gripping Dragon slayer and slams his hand on the table) Hey! We're here to talk about my battle capabilities, not my past.
ReDante: Woah, a bit touchy there aren't we Hasselhoff.

ReDante: You sure your human, cause this is some freaky shit right here?
Fateful: Yep he's human alright he's just been pushed to the physical limit of our species enough to do stuff such as; casually bust through supernatural foes with ease using a 600 pound sword, survive anything that's not an instant kill move, and can react to lightning from a sitting position!
Red hood: Man, you could give Bats a run for his fortune!
Guts: How good is he?
Red hood: Well he's trained all over the world to fight in every martial art imaginable, including multiple weapon types. He personally trained me to just so ya know.
ReDante: Heh, sounds like a guy with to much time on his hands, especially with you there to bog him down.
Red hood: And to much money to worry about little punks like you, least I had a dad to teach me!
ReDante: Fuck you!
Red hood: I don't swing that way!
Aladdin: Let's move on to Hut's skills now, hurry!
Abilities and Skills
Master Swordsman Has been fighting for most of his life. Was able to clash blades with Griffith on two occasions. *The first bout, while Guts lost, showed he can more than hold his own while Guts decisively beat him in the second. Even as a child, competently used a sword that was deemed too heavy to wield for him. Can kill some apostles and men with casual hefts of Dragonslayer. Outfought Silat twice on separate occasions As show above, fought roughly evenly with Zodd in their second encounter. *Zodd has slain entire armies by himself and has over a lifetimes ( 300 years or more) worth of combat experience. Even at a worsening condition, was able to fight Azan with Dragonslayer. Was able to dispatch a group of Kushan scouts with a single swing. Was able to teach Isidro how to swordfight. During the Eclipse, killed demons with only a blunt sword. Even with a dull sword and his opponent having superior armor, was able to outfight him. Has slain Bazuso the Thirty Man-Slayer. Was considered by the Count as the greatest human swordsman. Held his own against Grunbeld, who can take on 3,000 enemies, in the Berserker Armor.
Tactical Genius and Pragmatism:
Was the former Raiders Captain of the Band of the Hawk. Always seems to know the right tools for the job. Is capable of spotting weak points no matter how painful it might be to reach them. More than willing to exploit enemy weaknesses and faults. *Even jump through fire or even let himself get stabbed just to get an advantage. Was able to utilize Dragonslayer against lightning. Can adapt to unfavorable situations. Stabbed a well armored noble in the eye by using the crossguard of his sword. Hid in a pile of dead bodies to surprise his enemies. Was able to lure several apostle-spawn into a barn before setting it on fire. While hiding in a fire, was able to use Jill as a lure to Rosine, so he can strike her down. Able to utilize his Cannon Arm in ingenious ways. *Such as utilizing it with Dragonslayer or manipulate its trajectory in a way which would allow Guts to attack an enemy from above. Completely pragmatic when it comes to fighting.
Has lived through wars and The Eclipse with only his luck and will to win through. Will do anything to win the fight. Was able to cast away vengeful spirits possessing him. Has denied and suppressed the Beast of Darkness. *The Beast of Darkness is the manifestation of the darkness within Guts' soul. Can continue fighting even if he has been stabbed, slashed, shot at, thrown around and everything else in between. Fought off wolves after falling off a cliff when he lost the will to live as a child.
Fateful: Seeing as the sword has been his main weapon throughout his entire life Gut's has become one of the greatest swordsmen In fictional history, having gone blade to blade with multiple swordsmen of great renown including Zood who has over 300 years of combat experience!
Aladdin: He's also rather cunning in combat having been the leader of a raider group and used the difference in air pressure to get out of a sea monsters mouth, but most amazing of all is the guy's willpower; I mean he's been living in hell for almost his whole life, got his soul branded by demons as a sacrifice, and saw his lover get raped while in a pool of his bands blood...getting his eye gouged out.
( The Magi runs to the bathroom to throwup)
ReDante: Wow, guess you had it rough to uh man, at least my torment was centered on me.
Guts: Then we may be more similar then I realized, not that it matters anyway.
ReDante: Ok Buddy, but when the gun's to your head remember I gave you a chance to walk away.
Guts: It'll be in the only hand you have left.
Red hood: It's unusually funny that you should bring up guns, cause arsenal is up next!
Weapons and Equipment:
Dragonslayer A completely massive sword standing at 6'6 and weighing up to 200 to 600 pounds. Stated to be made of the ultimate steel. Has been laughed off as impossible to use for a normal man. Was made to specifically slay dragons. Has often sliced through armored men without trouble. Broad enough to be used as a shield. *Can take crossbow bolts without trouble. Withstood several attacks from Mozgus. As a result of being tempered by the malice of the thousands of the dead, has gained the ability to harm the astral body. Can slice through ethereal bodies. *Meaning it can bypass conventional durability. Was able to take several supersonic charges from Rosine. Was largely unaffected by Mozgus' God Breath. Withstood Schierke's Fire Wheel without visible injuries. *Which was able to vaporize a giant water snake. Sustained several, rapid blows from Nosferatu Zodd. Was able to dissipate Ganishka's Lightning Mist form upon striking his weakspot. Able to conduct and withstand Ganishka's lightning.
Prosthetic Arm: Replaces Guts' left arm after he lost in the Eclipse. Increases Guts' punching and lifting strength by a fair amount. Can punch through human heads and steel swords with no trouble. The hand hides a small magnet in order to better handle the Dragonslayer. Durable enough to withstand Rosine's stinger;imgur.com/9EMwtCk Houses multiple long ranged weapons such as....
Cannon Arm: Often used as a surprise attack. Can severely weaken or even one-shot Apostle-spawns strong enough to contend with Guts. Just the recoil alone could dislocate Guts' shoulder when he started using it. Guts can still use the Cannon when he uses the Berserker Armor. Was able to go through a giant wicker man with a single shot. A single blast was able to go through a sea monster's mouth. While in the Berserker Armor, has able to blow up Grunbeld's flamethrower. Severely wounded Rosine with a single shot. Blew apart a Makara's skull. Can set an entire barn on fire. Can be used to propel himself upwards. Has enough firepower to one-shot a female demon. He still has to maintain it's gunpowder and the cannonball itself
Repeater Crossbow: Mounted on top of the prosthetic arm. Guts' most useful long range weapon. Fires via simply turning a crank. Can eject arrows strong enough to launch someone's head into a wooden pillar. Strong enough to push back an Apostle's human form. A knight was afraid of what Guts' crossbow did to his fellow knights. Can severely damage trolls. Guts has been accurate to shoot the arrows into eyes, necks, and even the side of the head. Its new model can launch a quasi-Apostle into a rocky wall and slightly fragment it. *Said Apostle can shatter Guts' spine if not for his armor. Can take down hordes of human soldiers and monsters with ease. Like the Cannon Arm, Guts has to maintain it's ammunition. Miniature Bombs Used by Guts in his journey to the Tower of Conviction. Has short fuse of three seconds. It has spikes attached to them to latch onto the opponent. Was able to disfigure a Quasi-Apostle's face. Blinded a Makara because of the explosion. Was able to blow open Mozgus' armored chest, which was difficult for Dragon slayer to do
Throwing Knives Guts carries at least five of them in his pouch. He can throw this with extreme accuracy. *As seen in the image above, threw and hit the eye of an Apostle. Can be used as a distraction weapon or blind enemies.
Red hood: Oh man, does Guts have some fine weapons for any battlefield, first off his is iconic Dragonslayer which is easily the biggest sword I've ever seen weighing in at over 200-600lbs, if that's not enough it's wide enough to block projectiles, and has bathed in so much demonic blood that it can cut the astral bodies of anything!
Aladdin: Gut's also has a metal arm to replace his old one that has a magnet to help his swordplay, but it's usefulness doesn't stop there by a long shot, it comes equipped; with a crossbow that can pin apsotales to a wall from a good distance, a cannon that can one-shot those who are on par with Guts, some cherry bombs that can blast off armor to strong for Dragonsalyer to cleave through.
And throwing knives.
ReDante: That cannon arm is the most interesting to me, how'd you get that?
Guts: From a friend, and no you can't have one.
ReDante: I didn't ask that bastard!
Fateful: But all this pales in comparison to Guts most powerful weapon, or should I say armor.
Berserker Armor Guts' trump card and, unarguably, his strongest weapon. Allows the user to surpass their subconscious limits. *At the cost of their own life. Can also cause temporary insanity. Makes the user completely numb to pain. Will continue fighting until the last of his blood gushed out. Can use his Cannon Arm even in this state. * Showing some remaining intelligence The Armor takes on the appearance of the wearer's "inner beast" when entering the Berserker mode. *Guts' inner beast takes the form of a hellhound. It gives him night vision. Reinforces his broken limbs and bones together. Heavily increases Guts speed, durability, and strength drastically by at least 5-6 times! * Should be around town level now
Red hood: Geez, and I thought my gear was insane but that armor tops it if not in power but just pure intimidation!
Aladdin: Oh Red, that suit does more then look good, it also has some strong mythical residue on it that makes Gut's capable of doing stuff he couldn't do before, and enhances his abilities to insane levels!
ReDante: Oh yeah how.
Strength His slices are stronger than a cannonball shot. *As show as he busted through Grunbeld's shield. Was able to clash with Grunbeld's Warhammer strike and overpowering it. Magnifico stated that Guts, in this state, is much more powerful than a warship. Can push around the colossal Grunbeld. Easily butchered and sliced up an Apostle. Was able to butcher a Makara with ease. * Who can destroy fleets of warships with ease Was able to take on a group of Makaras and wipe out one with a single strike. Lifted up the mouth of a Makara * Who are as big as warships Damaged the armored hull of a ship. Cracked and sliced through Corundum encased skin of Grundbeld in his Apostle form. *Grundbeld claims that his Corundum skin is harder than steel;i.imgur.com/NkXESvY.jpg Lifted up and held up a falling mast of a ship. *The mast was around 30 tons. Slices through a waterspout. * That could destroy a warship Caught Apostle Grunbeld's tail swing, at the cost of breaking his leg.
Durability Took hits from Grunbeld in his Apostle form. *Grunbeld, in his base form, was throwing around Guts with no problem. Doesn't feel pain in the armor. Reinforces his limbs when they were damaged. Had no problem when his legs were shattered when he caught Grunbeld's tail. As shown above, survived.. that. Survived being in the middle of a giant blast that vaporized a Water Snake. The armor pins down the bones with spikes and barbs. Can twist and straighten broken bones the correct way. Guts continued on fighting when he had three broken ribs. The user will keep fighting until every drop of their blood is gushed out.
Speed/Agility: Can leap and jump around like a rabid wolf. Has dodged lighting much easier the before. *Easily Massively Hypersonic+ to sub-relative in reaction speed. Reacted to Grunbeld's warhammer attack. His speed was enough that Grunbeld had a hard time keeping up with him. *Beforehand, Grunbeld was able to swat Guts aside without trouble. Run at speeds well above Supersonic speeds. Can run up to and slice down a waterspout.
Guts: That's how.
ReDante:............What the fuck! Fateful: Allow us to explain, Guts's Berserker armor enhances his abilities by at least 5-6 times allowing him to life up multiple tons, bash through warship destroying monsters, and pretty much not feel any pain in this form while being stiched back together like a ragdoll!
He's also blitzed lightning timers!
Guts: That pretty much covers everything about me, what about the drifter.
Red hood: Well we'll find out more about him, right now. Weaknesses Still human Other than his fists, Dragonslayer is his only melee weapon. Long ranged weapons require reloading. Is constantly in danger of losing his humanity to his inner beast. Berserker Armor DOES NOT give him a healing factor simply extends his endurance. *The not feeling pain thing is not as good as it sounds. Using the Berserker Armor weakens him overtime due to his bones being not as good as they were. Will do anything to gain an advantage. *Even injure himself in the process.

I'm a up and coming young artist who is looking to make a name for himself while experiencing and learning from others! “Intelligence work has one moral law—it is justified by results.” -John Le Carre, The Spy Who Came In From The Cold. ( 10)
I've been fortunate to come on places where the question isn't why I did I do it? The question to me is always, why didn't anybody else do it before me? Those are the ones I scratch my head about. -Todd McFarlane
When writing, it helps hugely to begin with the end in mind. You've got the characters and situation in mind -- how does it conclude? Ok, now how do they get there? Now you've got the plot. / What are the Beats -- the major events/turning points in the story? Sketch those (rough) and lay them out. Does the story still make sense? Time for in-betweens -- how do the peeps move/act from beat to beat? More roughs. / Example. Lifeguard at the beach - swimmers - victim. Lifeguard saves the day. / Beats: Beach overview (intro/setup). Establish lifeguard. Introduce swimmer. Big wave. Crowd response. Lifeguard acts! Drama in water. All flop on beach. Finale.
And you've got something with the beginning, middle, and end. Stuff and add diversions/accents to your heart's content. Your collection of roughs and betweens will lay out your story, so all you have to do is decorate them. / Enjoy!-atomicsnarl.deviantart.com/
I figured when I saw: "That's what I've gathered from personal experience and talking to other authors."
--- I also just want to add something to this: "When writing, it helps hugely to begin with the end in mind. You've got the characters and situation in mind -- how does it conclude? Ok, now how do they get there? Now you've got the plot."
While I do agree, I also disagree. As an author myself, I've seen, more often than not, that while having an end idea in view is a good idea, it's never best to lock in that ONE idea. As I've stated before: let your characters surprise you. Let them grow. Real people are always changing, so, to make your characters real, let them grow as well. The end may not be the same as you planned. By not forcing them to end exactly the way you have already planned, you have given them the ability to become 'real' people.
You want my advice though mate? Write what you want to see written. That's what I've gathered from personal experience and talking to other authors. Think of your favorite book, if there were any qualities you felt that book was missing, write something with those qualities. And definitely do not write something just because people will be interested in it, if the story is not from your own heart and soul, it won't be any good. Never write because people will read it, write because you want it to be read. "In Heaven, there's a library, and one of the aisles in that library, is dedicated to all the books never written, don't let your story be in that aisle."-Ryan P. Freeman. Writing is something special, you have the power to create, everything you write is your world, you make the rules, the physics, the chemistry, everything is yours. That's what differs us writers from the artists on DA, while they create one picture that shows a snapshot of an incomplete world, we complete our worlds, flesh out the details, the readers see it all. Write the world you want to exist, it's your's to create. So, write what you want to see written. That's the best advice I can give you mate. Good luck!- themoldysausage.deviantart.com…

sure~ this may not be what you expect to hear, but dont show your drawings to just anyone. alot of people are really discouraging and will make you only see flaws in the work you were just so proud of before showing them. Be proud for yourself and don't let others' opinions get to you. you'll start doubting yourself and the quality of your work will decrease. trust me, once you do that, your drawings will get better so much faster. Also, draw for yourself and for fun and not to impress others. When you enjoy what you're doing, it shows up in your art ///// : / yeah and I'm definitely speaking from experience. once I stopped showing negative people, I wasn't as hard on myself when I made a mistake, i was always motivated to draw, and I was in a good mood when i practiced. And I say it's always good to work on anatomy, but even with that, don't be too tough on yourself. If you look closely at the professional manga and anime artists, like if you look behind all the fancy color and extra detail, you see that they have a lot of obvious anatomical mistakes, like, a lot. So as long as you are confident and feel positive about what you were able to do, people wont look at your art for accuracy, but for the the amount of creativity you put in it instead-angelheights.deviantart.com/
