Who is brave enough to free BATTLE BEAST?!
— Battle Beast

Battle Beast is a character from Image Comics' franchise, Invincible. One of the most recognizable characters, through his battle-hungry personality and powerful skills. Most of Battle Beast's past was unknown, but he was once a former planetary guardian of his planet, until he became too obsessed with fighting. As so, he left his job and explored the galaxy to find worthy opponents. Later, he served under Machine Head in hopes of testing Earth inhabitant's powers. On Earth, he defeated both Invincible and Titan, as well as the Guardians of the Globe easily, and also nearly killed Black Samson and Bulletproof, two of Machine Head's henchmen. After that, he was imprisoned by a race conquered by the Viltrumites. However, due to a prison riot orchestrated by Allen the Alien, he managed to escape. After that, he joined the Coalition of Planets after a Coalition party discovered him frozen by the vacuum of space. He also later participated in the Viltrumite War, killing many Viltrumites. After healing from his injuries, Beast was tasked to kill Thragg , who is currently in Thraxa. After days of fighting, Beast finally died when Thragg crushed his heart. Thragg will later use Battle Beast's skin as a cape and his body would be incinerated.

A powerful member of his species, Battle Beast possesses powerful physical abilities, combined with his skills in mastering weapons. In combat, Beast usually employed both bladed and blunt weapons. Although the weapons that Beast wielded were pretty large. His endurance has been described to be unlimited, as he battled Thragg for days with his organs dangling but still keeps on fighting. His strength is also incredible, able to overpower several Viltrumites at once and held his own against Thragg, who is probably the strongest  Viltrumite ever. His fangs are also sharp enough to pierce a Viltrumite's skin. Battle Beast might have already died, but his deadliness in combat, will always be remembered.

Battle vs. Wrecker (by Monkey Doctor 33)[]

Prologue[]

Wrecker is walking around a shipyard. He has been tasked by a dimension-jumping villain named Angstrom Levy to retrieve some "supplies" from the said location. It has been a long time that Wrecker seemingly lost his friends. Bulldozer, Thunderball, Piledriver. They're all gone, and Wrecker goes solo this time. The 3 may have died, due to Dirk's feeling of being enhanced furtherly. While so, Dirk gives little respect to such, as he is now focusing on an objective.

In the shipyard, Wrecker sees a lot of containers, and is not sure which to retrieve.

"Damn! This Levy guy is mad! Is he expecting me to bring all the containers here?!" Wrecker muttered while preparing to open a container with his enchanted crowbar. Opening one of the containers isn't one of Wrecker's duties this time, but surely he's curious about the contents.

"Oooh... That's shiny!" Wrecker sees a stack of gold there. He plans in taking it for himself, because he's not sure what Levy is gonna do with the gold.

"These shiny stuffs are gonna make me rich! Time to open up even more stuffs!" Wrecker disobeys Levy's objective to retrieve, and proceeds to open up more containers. His enchanted crowbar can't even hold Dirk's greed.

Some times later... Dirk got a lot of objects from the containers. Including those that Levy wants to use. Gears, circuits, reactors, rare metals (possibly Adamantium), mystical generators, etc... Dirk gets consumed by his greed and plans to use all these things to make his career better.


"Beast. Remember. You're going to intercept somebody who is sent by Angstrom Levy to do a bad thing for him. The target is unknown, but be careful. Don't rush into combat without thinking." In the comm, Tech Jacket is speaking to Battle Beast, warning him of the possible dangers and mission.

"I know, little boy. I don't even think that this minion will be hard to take on." Beast confidently says to Jacket while he prepares his blade. Beast then cuts down the comm, and tries to track down the "minion".

Battle Beast walks through the containers. There are many containers that the yard somehow resembles a labyrinth. It took some time for Beast to track the minion. But when he reached a particular area, his super senses begin to pick up something.

"What's this? Seems like I've spotted Levy's weakling..." Beast sniffed the air, and his whiskers give him a little information about who is Levy's minion here. Beast knows what to do, and with his enhanced strength, he leaps up to the container near him. His sight picks up the Wrecker trying to open a big container with his crowbar.

"So, this is Levy's minion? Hah! Seems like he'll be easy to kill." Luckily, Battle Beast's quote can't be heard by Wrecker, because he's far away from him. Beast then steps down and silently goes on Wrecker.


"Why the hell is this thing so... Hard!" Wrecker tries to open the big container with a lot of difficulty. The container, unknown to him, is made of Vibranium. Wrecker tried to open it by force as well by smashing it, but it wouldn't work. Wrecker finally gives up, and sits down for a while.

"Damn, I forgot what Levy wanted me to do! Meh! Screw it. At least I got my own stuffs! He's not as strong as me anyway." Wrecker mutters. Unknown to him, Battle Beast is already within the killing range.

"Hehehe... I'll swindle your throat, little crook!" Beast then takes his sword, and goes in a lunging stance, preparing for ambush. Wrecker now stands up and flexes, and walks away.

"Meh. It's time to get back to..." Before Wrecker can finish his words, Battle Beast ambushed him already, knocking him down while Dirk gets surprised.

"What the hell? Who the f*ck are you?!" Wrecker says with a shocking accent while Beast is smiling.

"Let's just say that the Coalition of Planets tasked me to intercept Levy's so called minion... Seems like you're the minion..." Beast prepares to attack Wrecker once again.

"Woah! Damn dude! How the hell did you know that?! Nevermind about that! You're going down!"

"Let's see if you're worthy enough for me to fight!"

TBW

Expert's Opinion[]

Wrecker won because of his experience and enchanted crowbar. While Battle Beast seems to be stronger and can overwhelm Wrecker, he eventually falls short to him. Wrecker's crowbar allows a greater amount of options in the battle, being able to shoot energy blasts, absorb energy, teleport, and even make forcefields. Battle Beast's weapons, while strong, are rendered obsolete by the crowbar. Wrecker also has the better mental health, which also gives him the path of victory.

Battle vs. Nosferatu Zodd (by 123chaseyoung)[]

The apostle, known as Nosferatu Zodd, sat in the middle of a stone arena, seemingly contemplating and waiting. It had been a while since he smelled the fine salty musk of blood; the texture of gore and ripped flesh. The world had turned… boring… and bleak. Times like these was when he missed the Black Swordsman and the White Hawk.

Yet, Nosferatu Zodd smiled. For it would be only a few minutes more before this monotony would be broken.

Inside a spaceship, Battle Beast prepared his weapons and uniform. He took a good course into a wormhole that took him into a new different world. Below his ship was the planet he seeked. Even above, Battle Beast knew the hostility of that planet — the bodies that decayed underneath its soil. He knew this to be a fun planet.

Soon, he opened the hatch, and leaped out of his ship. In a fiery blaze, he pierced through the planet’s atmosphere and smashed onto the ground in a mighty explosion, sending rocks flying, and the ground shaking.

Nosferatu Zodd looked behind him. Battle Beast returned the gaze.

“It’s about time,” Zodd greeted. “I thought you are going to be late.”

“Oh I’ve been waiting for this…” replied Battle Beast. “No… I am excited!”

“Yes! Excited! The rush! Feel it! Feeeel it! Give me a good fight, Beast!”

“Yeeeeeeeesssss! For glory!”

After the chanting of war cries, the two battle-hungry humanoid felines attacked. Their swords met and grind each other. Their grins and eyes casting a reflection of one another.

Battle Beast broke the stalemate with a front kick that sent Nosferatu Zodd flying. He crashed and tumbled but managed to regain his stance and landed on his feet. But Beast didn’t let up as he dashed forward and made a side-swing with his broadsword. Zodd blocked it with his Ram Dao and headbutted Beast in the noggin. This did nothing as Battle Beast returned the favor, smashing his skull into Zodd’s jaw. The apostle managed to make a fast upward swing as he fell backwards from that attack, creating a slice on Battle Beast’s shoulder.

“Yes! Blood! Make it flow!” Beast only yelled as he too spun around and eviscerated Zodd.

“Hahahhahaha! Yeeeessss!” Zodd screamed as he attempted to counter with an overhead swing. But Battle Beast anticipated this and parried with his broadsword, cutting Zodd’s Ram Dao in two.

“Do you want me to discard my sword to make this fight fair?” Battle Beast asked.

“No, friend,” Zodd exlaimed. “I have other weapons in store.”

In front of Battle Beast’s eyes, Zodd’s appearance began to change. He became larger and hulkier, ripping his clothes asunder. His feet became more animal-like and pronounced, his arms enlarged like crazy, and his head popping out gigantic horns with one which had broken off.

With a roar, Zodd charged at Battle Beast. The latter made a mad slash but it did nothing, as Zodd barreled through his attack and pierced his horn on Beast’s abdomen. As his foe screamed and grunted, Zodd smashed Beast on the ground repeatedly, mutilating him more and more. Knowing he had to get out, Beast used all of his strength to break Zodd’s remaining horn. As he fell down, a kick from Zodd made him fly like a soccer ball.

Though disoriented from that attack, Battle Beast quickly regained his footing. However, his foe had seemingly vanished. He looked around but saw nothing. His weapon seemed to have disappeared too.

“Heads up!” Zodd yelled as he swooped in, making Beast collide with his left wing. It ripped the latter’s back, creating a fountain of blood. However, Zodd disappeared into the sky before Beast could retaliate.

“Heh, playing hard to get?” Battle Beast jested. “I’ve fought viltrumites who can move faster than light. This is nothing!”

Beast’s powerful senses detected where Zodd would be attacking. He leaped into the air as Zodd was swooping in, before landing on his back. Beast grappled Zodd by the neck as Zodd attempted to fly back upwards. As the two tangoed in the sky, Beast repeatedly bit Zodd’s head, cracking his skull, taking off his ears, and chewing one of his eyes.

The pain made Zodd fall down. As the two went down and down and down, they continued to grapple and bite, before finally smashing into the ground in a crescendo of might.

Epilogue[]

The afternoon was over and the sun began to set. Battle Beast sat on the arena and watched. His mind was calm, his breathing slowing down, and his heart was at peace.

A cold feeling touched his neck, and he looked up and saw Nosferatu Zodd handing him a cold beverage. Beast smiled before accepting it.

“I hope your species like cold malt,” Zodd said as he sat besides Beast.

“I can consume anything. I am not scared of death,” replied Beast.

“You do indeed. Hence why I consider you my equal.”

The two watched the sunset together, contented with the opportunity that was given. As Beast stared, Zodd looked at him and smiled, before placing his hand on Beast’s. Battle Beast saw what he was doing, and it felt… nice. A warm feeling in his heart far better than being stabbed or dismembered.

“It is good that you visited. Sometimes, I think I do not know my place in this world,” Zodd shared.

“Do not worry, I am here,” Beast replied.

“I just feel happy to meet someone who is like me. One burdened by hunger for carnage. Yet, meeting you was the first of many thousand years where I felt… harmonious.”

“I agree. All my life, all I wanted was a glorious death. With you, I appreciate life more.”

The two finally kissed and held each other’s cheeks. They would spend the rest of the sunset in each other’s company, before Beast finally returned to his ship, and Zodd making the long trek back to the Band of the Hawke’s camp.

Expert’s Opinion[]

Even though Nosferatu Zodd had been fighting for thousands of years, and have different forms, what ultimately sealed Battle Beast’s victory is his better weapon, superior durability and strength.
