    Round One...


    Commander Shepard, the galaxy's savior, takes on the almighty Jafar of Agrabah. Two very different people from two very different worlds collide! Can the captain of the Normandy battle their way out of the first round? Or will the menacing magical maniac wish upon a star?

    What's that you got there Jafar? A staff? Gonna cast some magic spells? Maybe turn some shit into snakes that attack Shepard?

    A quick researching of Jafar's powers indicate he can levitate objects, breath fire, and transform into a giant cobra.

    Shepard has faced powerful biotics that can levitate and throw objects at him/her, and Shepard has put them down with ease. Superior weapons and strategy are all that Shepard needs to avoid being taken down by, say, a giant boulder being hurled at him/her.

    Fire? Shepard has faced swarms of Vorcha Pyros (quick healing aliens equipped with flamethrowers and a lust for blood) in intense situations (trying to cure a plague in a quarantined district on a space station) and, again, took them down easy.

    Giant cobra? Shepard has fought Thresher Maws (giant space worms that spit acid and can take out entire space ships) with great success. A giant cobra is nothing compared to a Thresher Maw.

    This is all assuming Jafar would be able to cast any of these spells before Shepard pulled out his/her assault rifle and unloaded an entire thermal clip into the wizard, or used his/her biotic powers to slam them into the ground repeatedly.

    Hi, I'm JGlass, and Shepard is my favorite for the winner of this match.

    JGlass is the resident Mass Effect expert, so he basically covered all the points worth covering already. The only chance Jafar has is an epic distraction from Iago, but the only thing that distracts Shepard is space booty/space peen depending on which gender you play as.

    I'm assuming that this is sorcerer Jafar and not genie Jafar. As that hardly seems like a fair fight as he has all kinds of reality warping fuckery on a near universal level at his disposal.

    As a sorcerer Jafar can transmute objects [turned a Tiger into a kitten and an elephant into a monkey] levitate people and objects as large as a palace tower, sending it flying into the atmosphere. He can manipulate people to do his bidding like a puppet master. His spells seems to work instantly.

    My concern is Jafar's speed and toughness. He certainly has the power to defeat Shepard with his spells, quite easily in fact, but Shepard has proven himself to be much faster than an average human, which is what Jafar fought. He didn't fight the Genie until he became a genie.

    As a snake he certainly has the speed to keep up with Shepard, but Aladdin was able to harm him with a sword. Shepard has all kinds of crazy weapons at his disposal, some of which would do a lot more damage than a sword.

    Shepard seems to have a few special abilities, one in particular is telekinesis where he can lift, pull, or throw objects. He also has the power to turn invisible for up to 6 seconds, create shock waves, and manipulate gravity.

    With his special abilities and speed combined with his weapons he could feasibly be able to counter sorcerer Jafar's spells and defeat him. I'm not totally sure though. I'm still on the fence to be honest.

    I tend to judge fights based on who can actually fight better, imagine that.

    Jafar seems to get by on an intimidation factor, and he's going up against a character who -- in all three Mass Effect games -- didn't back down to anything. You're talking about an armada of certain doom fast approaching from deep space, and it still puts out the memo "Watch out for Shepard!"

    Jafar got spanked by an aloof street urchin, and was relegated to "random villain" in the series. If Jafar doesn't get killed in under a minute, it'll be because he swore his life to aiding Shepard's cause.
