So who expects Predator will fight the month after the next trailer drops? Probably around March. Highest likely fights are Arbiter, Kraven, the Terminator and Nemesis. My money is on Arbiter/Elite.

Haseo can do anything Kite can do. (they even both deal with Cubio the same, just with different methods) But ontop of that he can manifest Skeith and has forms that are outside the parameters of the game. So technically his powers are just better versions of what Kite can do.

Where Kite revolved around his team and the help of all the coma victims, Haseo's squad just used their broken Avatars to deal with it

Really though there is nothing Kirito could do to stop a data drain regardless of who he fought

Not to mention he wouldn't be able to even see Skeith through normal means

Kirito is literally a guy who just got access to a one of a time style in his game and is also just good at video games

Haseo and Kirito literally just have broken abilities

Even if a data drain doesn't put Kirito into a coma, it can just reset him and all his stuff to a brand new character

Wouldn't really mind who does the fighting, I just hope its 3D

Tfw Alien (any xenomorph) isn't a "likely" opponent. Even if it's bad and has been done before, if it's popular, these guys will take up that oppurtunity. They've made exceptions for a few battles based on their own personal admissions but, otherwise? They try to get that dough.

There's various levels of done before. Alien vs Predator is at the highest level. That has licensed pieces in virtually every form of media. Which includes theatrical release. That goes beyond somebody's done that and into nobody hasn't already.

Yet there are countless people that still suggest it. It's not immediately written off.

There are many more reasons why Kite doesn't really work from the storytelling stand point. When Kite started, he was just a newbie player who got invited by his friend, Sieg, to join him before Sieg got Data Drained and put in a coma. Kite's love interest, BlackRose, put up a tough front, but almost immediately admitted that she was just a newbie as well when hearing that Kite had only just started playing as well. Both Kite and BlackRose were very naive, young and eager when starting out. Unlike Kirito and Asuna, who both gave off the loner-vibe from the start and were both apparent badasses from the get-go, with Kirito being due to him being a beta tester.

What makes it worse is that it was Orca who was supposed to receive the Book of Twilight from Aura in order to stop the Eight Phases and Morganna, but he got DD'd by Skeith and Kite ended up receiving it, purely by accident. Kite just fell into the role by pure chance while Kirito was made out to be better than everyone else straight from the beginning. Kite also needed the support of his friends in order to push forward and save the others. Kirito just pulled bullshit protagonist powers out of his rectum because Asuna "died". It was really poorly executed. One of the other reasons why Kite just doesn't fit as well is because other people in the series have used his character model. So it's not original to him alone. Including a Rule 63 version named Sakuya in ".hack//Quantum".

Haseo fits the best with Kirito, not just due to their attitudes, but Haseo's skills are on part due to his past experience in [The World: R1] and Fragment in the form of Sora, and he does later regain his memories of when he was Sora as well.

What are the similarities between Kite, Haseo and Kirito?
There are people who want to see Neo vs Kirito. Does it make sense?

They all share the general theme of "Player gets stuck in an online game and shit hits the fan." Though in Neo's case it's reversed.

MegaMan.EXE would fit a similar standpoint as well.

Crossing my fingers for Kraven. Hunter vs. hunter would be awesome.

I also want to see one of the other crossover fight shows do Predator vs. Ryu, but I'm pretty sure nobody actually wants to see that except me.
