Miyo Takano was an orphan adopted by a Japanese scientist who was working on a virus local to the village of Hinamizawa. Miyo's father was criticized for his work, which stated that the Hinamizawa syndrome's effects, the namely violent behavior could be triggered by the death of a "queen carrier". After her father died, Takano continued his work, determined to prove him correct. Takano planned to do this by killing the "queen carrier" and causing the entire village to go insane.
In order to gain access to the village, Takano joined a conspiracy of politician born before the Second World War, who intended to weaponize the Hinamizawa Syndrome and use it to restore Japan's position as a major military power. Takano was given control of a force of troops, the Yamainu, who she used to eliminate any threats to her plans, thought Takano herself was quite willing to commit murder and did so on a number of occasions.
Takano lived in the village of Hinamizawa while preparing her plans, posing as a nurse in a local clinic. In addition to proving her father right, Takano also believes that by killing off the village of Hinamizawa in a mysterious accident believed to be the result the curse of Oyashiro, a local god, Takano will herself become a god, at least in a metaphorical sense.
Higurashi When They Cry covers multiple parallel universes. In most of them, Takano succeeds in killing the "queen carrier", a girl named Rika Furude, plunging the village into madness, and then killing off the inhabitants with poison gas. However, in the final arc of Higurashi, Takano is defeated by the combined efforts of Furude and her friends Keiichi Maebara, Rena Ryuguu, Mion and Shion Sonozaki, Satoko Houjou, and several others.

Battle vs. Friedrich Steiner (by SPARTAN 119)
Friedrich Steiner and four SS personnel walked through the deserted streets of Hinamizawa at night, wondering where they were. Near the Irie Clinic, which Takano was using as a headquarters, Steiner and SS men were spotted by Miyo Takano and four Yamainu.
One of the Yamainu, armed with an MP5SD, opened fire, striking an SS officer to Steiner's right with a three-round burst, killing him. Steiner and the SS officers took cover around a couple of the thatched-roofed houses, typical architecture in the historic village of Hinamizawa.
One of the SS men raised his MP40 and returned fire, killing one of the Yamainu. . A Yamainu soldier raised an RPG-7 and fired at the thatched house, blowing away the walls on one side and killing the Nazi that fired the MP40.
Steiner and the other two Nazis retreated a road along a hill, eventually making it to Hinamizawa's Furude Shrine, though the Nazis obviously did not know the name of the shrine.
An SS officer took up position on a lookout above the shrine. From there, he could see Takano and the four remaining Yamainu coming up the road to the shrine. The Nazi fired a Panzershreck rocket. The warhead went wide, but the shrapnel and blast wave still killed one of the Yamainu.
The Panzershreck gunner retreated before the Yamainu could open fire, so the Yamainu entered the Furude shrine. The third Yamainu stayed back to check a shed near the shrine for anyone hiding inside.
Steiner walked up the shed, a gas mask over his face, and tossed a Nova Six gas grenade into the shed, before he slammed and locked the door. The Yamainu's screams of pain were stifled by cutting and banging of his fists on the door. After a couple seconds, the Yamainu soldier stopped moving and died.
Steiner took cover inside another storage shed, this one containing a much more disturbing contents, implements of torture, along with a statue of some Shinto deity, however, mere artifacts couldn't hurt him, and they could be used as a weapon if things got up close and personal.
Takano returned fire, taking two shots with her M1911, both misses. Steiner returned fire, grazing Takano. The two exchanged fire until both ran out of ammuntion.
Takano walked up to the Saiguiden as Steiner reloaded, saying. "You know, those who enter that storage shed are cursed by the shrine god, Oyashiro"
Steiner did not the Japanese phrase Takano had just spoke, but he heard what looked like a smoke grenade land in the building, and then heard the door slam. Clearly, it was some kind of gas grenade.
"I guess she doesn't realized I have a gas mask", Steiner said, grabbing a scythe lying against the wall of the shed and slaming it into the door, the blade sinking into the door and pulling a chunk of it away as he pulled it out. Steiner did this a few more times, until he felt his eyes water up and smelled a rotten egg small. He started to cough.
At that moment, Steiner realized his gasmask strap was loosened by a stray bullet grazing the side of his head, he had not noticed in the rush of adrenaline the was the fight. As this though crossed his mind, Steiner fell dead, poisoned by the toxic gas that filled the room.
Takano walked away from the shrine, laughing maniacally. "I told you would be cursed by Oyashiro-sama. His curse is my curse. I have become Oyashiro-sama!"
WINNER: Miyo Takano
Miyo Takano won this match mostly because of her superior firepower. All of Takano's weapons, with exception of the Colt M1911 and the gas grenades, are more modern descendents of Steiner's weapons, with superior performance- the RPG outranged the Panzerschreck, the Colt proved to be more powerful than the Walther P38 in WWII, and the MP5 performed better than the older MP40. The only edge Steiner won was the Nova Six gas, and that was not enough to win him the match.
Battle vs. Max Payne (by BattleGames1)
Port of Kanazawa, 12 hours after the Great Hinamizawa disaster
"Help me carry this thing..." a Yamainu soldier grunts as he and another man carry a small crate towards a gangplank. On it stood Takano and she was overseeing her men load 50 so crates containing dozens of syringes carrying the Hinamizawa virus on board a cargo tanker. Helping the men set the last of the crates down, Takano heads out onto the pier. Looking up at the moon, Takano smirks as she realizes that her plan is about to come into fruition - now that her theory about the Hinamizawa syndrome is about to make headlines, she reckons that to really make the disease really spread virally (both in the media sense and the literal sense) would be to release the virus in a densely populated area; and since she would not be able to do in Tokyo (because that is where her co-conspirators are doing their thing with the virus), she reckoned that the best place to do this would be in America.
"Takano," one of the Yamainu bodyguards of hers walks up and asks "Where are we exactly going?"
After letting out a little chuckle, she said "We are going to the USA. We will start our next reign of terror there"
Walking towards the boardwalk leading to the deck, Takano goes into further detail. "I've decided that the city we'll be heading to will be New York," Takano walks up to the ships cabin and unfurls a map, laying it out onto the controls, "From what intel Okonogi has supplied to me, once word gets out about me, the US will send their Coast guard units to Los Angeles in anticipation for my 'arrival', but they are foolish," she traces a path going up the coast of Siberia and heading towards the North Pole "This ship will be able to pass through the Arctic ocean covertly. Those dumb Canadians will mistake our ship for a fishing trawler and let us through their shipping waters easily.""So how are we going to end up in New York safely? Surely the Americans will realize they've been bluffed after a few days" the Yamainu soldier by her side asks.
"Don't worry." Takano assures her companion with a little rustle of the Yamainu's cap, "My people in Tokyo have gotten that taken care of..."
Takano is then interrupted by another Yamainu soldier who walks in "Madam, the Yamainu have packed their stuff onto the crew cabins and are ready to pull away"
"Good" Takano exclaimed in a sinister voice as she puts away her map "Set course for New York City following my path". Looking at the two Yamainu soldier's standing there, she yells "Well, don't just stand there. Get the ship started!"
Amid a few cries of "Yes, maam", the Yamainu soldiers rush out of the captains control deck and out onto the deck. Miyo meanwhile stares into the horizon, a look of determination forming on her face. With a bit of luck, she may be able to reach the city, drug and infect the hundred thousand or so citizens and throw everything into chaos. It'll be a conquering of the USA, one city at a time.
Tokyo City, 2-and-a-half weeks later
Detective Ooishi was in his office, rummaging through various photos he has of Takano, the damn bitch who poisoned all those innocent villagers back at Hinamizawa. He is trying to formulate some idea where Takano is heading. The JSDF have traced Takano's trail to Kanazawa but when the troops arrived, the place was bare. Not a single trace of Takano and the Yamainu, just a few empty cargo trucks and a missing ship. The JSDF have been patrolling the sea looking for her, but it seems as if they are slipping under the radar. "Man I could really use some sleep, I've been up all night just trying to think of something" he silently said to himself. With a flick of a switch, a whip off the coat stand and the push of a button, Ooishi was making his way to the ground floor. As he walked past the concierge, he noticed that the receptionist was looking at a news report of Takano's escape. To Ooishi, his news about her gas attack in Hinamizawa was spreading like wildfire, people from Paris, Sydney and even closer to home like Beijing were holding special vigils for the departed. As the receptionist changed channels looking for something to else to watch, something caught Ooishi's attention. The next channel the receptionist changed to was FOX News also reporting the same thing. This was enough for Ooishi to realise something.
"Of course, how can I be so stupid?" Ooishi angrily muttered to himself. The muttering was loud enough to make the receptionist at the desk turn; but before she could say anything, Ooishi was bolting out the door.
"She's going to New York. That's why the US Coast Guard in California weren't seeing her..." Ooishi thought to himself as he puffed and panted his way to the nearest telephone booth. On the dark street, he looked like a bolt of darkness blitzing from lamp-post to lamp-post - one second he's there, the next he's disappeared. Finally, Ooishi reached a booth. After a few seconds of frantic dialling, he yelled at the operator to connect him to the DEA. Somewhere from a distance, a shadowy female figure (note: this is Homura) stood, watching the foolish detective alert the US about their stupidity. "Well, I guess it's time before this turns messy" she thought in a sinister manner. Taking a tiny step forward, she unsheathed her dagger.
New York City, 12 hours later
Max awoke to the sound of Sonny and Cher playing I Got You Babe on the clock radio. "Ah not this shit again..." Max said as he struggled to get out of bed. His head pounded very heavily like it was about to break out of his cage, his voice didn't sound too good either but it was just one of those early morning croaks that he could get over. "God what I do last night?" Max gloomily thought to himself.
Wash wash, scrub scrub and into the kitchen he went. Minutes later, the smell of egg and bacon sizzled in the air, as was the rich aroma of a cappuccino. Maybe this would be enough to remove that awful stench that lingered in his palate. To Max, this may not feel like a hearty breakfast back in Sao Paolo but at least it was good to be home. After consuming his daily meal, he turned on the television.
Gay show... gay show... Superbowl ah I don't fucking care about... and the next thing he sees is the news report from FOX News."This is a special news bulletin from FOX News. News from our good friends in Japan. Ōishi Kuraudo, one of the detectives responsible in the investigation of the Great Hinamizawa Disaster, has mysteriously disappeared after placing a call from a phone booth some time after leaving his office in Tokyo. Police are currently combing the scene for clues as to who has taken him but so far nothing has been found..."
'*click*' "Heh, good luck to them." Max said as he began to sip his coffee. Just as he finished and set the cup down, the doorbell rings. For a few seconds it resonates throughout the apartment. "Who the fuck could that be?" Max said to himself before coming to open it.
Outside stood two tall men, dressed in white shirts, black jeans, polished shoes, dark glasses... and a vest that read DEA in big bold white writing.
The black man spoke first "I'm Agent Smith and this is Agent Jones," he gestured to the tall white figure, "as you can tell, we're from the DEA..."
"Go fuck yourself!" Max angrily muttered as he shut the door. Midway, Smith stopped <ax in his tracks. After re-opening the door in defeat, the conversation ran like this:
"I'm told you were the best agent the DEA had some time ago..."
"Yeah... until I lost my family and all..."
"Of course you got nuts after all. If I was in your position, man I'd be pissed off too"
"What do you want?"
Agent Jones stepped forward and handed Max a dossier. "You heard about what happened to Detective Ooishi, right?" he sternly asked.
"He's the guy that disappeared right?" Max said as he scratched his head. "What the fuck do the DEA have to do with this?" he thought.
"Well, head office in Arlington received a call from him about Takano. Apparently she is on her way to New York."
Finally voicing his thought, Max said "What the fuck does the DEA have to do with this?"
Before Jones could say something, Smith jumped in "The call from Ooishi was a tip for us. Apparently according to him, Takano has been making and harbouring an illegal substance and is perhaps taking a load of them with her to New York. Before he could tell us any more, the line got cut."
Staring at the woman in the photo a lot of thoughts raced through his mind. If his family were still alive at this moment, then they would be in serious danger. But it wasn't just his family, it was the entire New York city at stake. And after reading through the death tool and photos of those dead, a sense of patriotism and revenge ran through his mind - or was it the rush of coffee getting to his head? Either way, he wasn't going to let this crime go unanswered.
Handing back the dossier, Max asked "What's in it for me?"
"Maybe if you get changed and come with us back to the base, we'll explain everything. All we know is, you and 5 other agents - including us - are going to intercept this terrorist as she arrives in the city."
With a feeling of satisfaction running across his face, Max grinned and said "Be with you in 5 minutes..."
5 hours later..."
It is almost 5pm and silence is all around - except for the sounds of Miyo and her small attache of Yamainu soldiers busy unloading their crates of the Hinamizawa Syndrome. "Be careful with that!" Miyo ordered her men as they place the crates inside stolen ambulances "Do you know how much of the virus is in that crate? Enough to render the city helpless and cut-off. By the time they take a swig of this both in the hospitals and in their sewage systems, they will be out of their minds before help can be given!" Takano starts to maniacally giggle at the thought running through her head "Once the virus spreads across the country, those foolish scientists back home and abroad will now that my father's research is of utmost importance... AND THEN I WILL HAVE BECOME OYASHIRO-SAMA!" the Yamainu soldiers around her tried their best to ignore the uproarious maniacal laughter that bellowed out of Takano and echoed throughout the walls. Suddenly, almost once she has calmed down, a police car wailed in the distance. Looking concerned, Miyo and her troops stop what they are doing. "The police are here!" a Yamainu soldier exclaims "Weapons ready!"
"Wait," Miyo commands "We'll let them walk into an ambush..." she eerily comments
Outside the harbour, a DEA van pulls up close to the warehouse where it is believed Takano and her cargo stash are located. All agents within step out of the vehicle - Payne, Smith, Jones, White, Brown and Green - and prepare themselves for what is going to be a fierce firefight. Max walks his way towards the boot of the van and opens it, revealing a huge arsenal of weapons to use. Payne grabs his Taurus pistol and M79 grenade launcher while the agents grab their M6A2s, Glocks and UMPs.
"Remember," Max briefs the other agents, "the target is Miyo Takano and she will have a small attache with her. Our orders are kill on sight. Got that?"
"Yes sir" the others replied in unison, and with that, they move out heading towards the warehouse entrance. Inside, they see the medium sized carrier boat Takano must have used to transport the illegal substance to the country. Over to the right are several ambulances with open doors and several of them are filled with crates. Brown stealthily walks towards the empty ambulance, thinking that one of Takano's 'attache' is hiding. "No sign of Takano here, sir" he reports. Suddenly Smith hears a *zip* and yells "ROCKET!" but before Brown can react, the ambulance he is standing explodes - from this, Brown is consumed in the blast . The remaining agents and Payne look up to see where the blast had come from and sees... nothing in the upper room. Suspicious, everyone aims their guns at the office expecting someone to come out. A Yamainu soldier kicks the door down and fires his Howa at the agents downstairs. The agents fire their rifles at the soldier who is also given covering fire by his fellow Yamainu soldiers. Neither side scores a hit, but on the Yamainu side, the RPG wielder from before pops out of hiding and taking aim with it. Smith fires his M6A2 at him and manages to kill him before the rocket could be fired . The lead Yamainu soldier from before notices Max load his M79 and orders his men to find another hiding place. He then ducks behind cover and pulls the pin on a Gas Grenade. Chucking it out of the window, he and the other troops place their gas masks on before heading out of the office. "Smoke grenade!" Jones yells out before he and his men stop firing, save Max who fires a grenade from his launcher at the office, sending one Yamainu flying through the window . Max hastily realises something is wrong and yells for everyone to move back to the van to get the masks. Before long though, White begins to stoop and chokingly cough - its as if he is being poisoned. The others look back to see him but it is too late to do anything . "Shit, it's a poison gas grenade get everyone out of the area..." Green begins to say before he is grazed in the shoulder by enemy fire from the Howa. The agents look forward to see a Yamainu soldier in a gas mask fire away. He quickly retreats to join his companions but unfortunately, Jones fires his UMP and kills the soldier in a hail of gunfire . When the soldier drops dead, the agents notice that the gas is still spreading but it is slowly dissipating. They turn back to where the Yamainu soldier was going to run to and it looks like another empty warehouse. "Smith and Jones, follow me. Green, you stay put. I'll come back to help you as soon as I can." Max stated
"Are you crazy, man? You know that ciggie shit must've got to your brain..." Jones protested. Payne was about to explode in anger about being confronted like this, but after a while, calmed down and simply said "Trust me, I know what I'm doing"
Unsure but not wanting to let the criminals get away, Smith and Jones followed Max as he sprinted, Taurus in hand, towards the empty warehouse, leaving Green by the side of the car. Clutching his shoulder in pain, Green made his way to the back of the car, hoping to find a medical kit. What Max and his men didn't realise in all their rushing about, is that Miyo has carefully hidden herself amongst the crates - when the gas erupted, she put on her gas mask and waited until Smith, Payne and Jones left. Now, she got herself an easy kill. Taking out her M1911, she held it at gunpoint at Green's head.
"What does that man and your agency know about me?" she angrily breathed close to his ear as she twirled the barrel close to the nape.
"Who, Payne?" Green retorted "He got all the motherfuckin' info he needs to know". Turning Green and holding the M1911 close to his temple, Miyo (by this time really pissed off and almost reaching her breaking point) muttered "Everything?"
In between his heavy breathing, Green proudly exclaimed "Everything. You goin' down bitch!".
"Good..." Takano calmly stated before pulling the trigger. Blood spattered all over the interior of the SUV as Green's body fell into the boot . Fluttering her cape, she stuffed the M1911 into her belt holster and took out her MP5, cocking it before rushing to join her fellow Yamainu soldiers.
Smith, Jones and Payne slowly walk into the warehouse and into darkness. After surveying all there is to see, Max pulls out a Molotov cocktail and a lighter. "What the--" Jones exclaimed before he is interrupted by Max "Don't ask. Now what this place here needs is a little light." A little chuckle resounded throughout the empty area before Max threw the flaming bottle. It exploded near some empty wooden crates and a forklift. The fire resulting from it (using whatever materials it could burn through, illuminated the place like a bright torch. The shadows of the Yamainu soldiers are blurry but not impossible to make out. Smith aimed his UMP and Jones aimed his M6A2 at where they see one shadow, silently daring the man to move. The Yamainu soldier, from behind the flames, randomly fires his Howa which doesn't seem to hit anyone at first because from the first bullet fired, the agents dispersed immediately. Max hides inside a metal crate in the corner while Smith and Jones ducked into the office. The fire was almost getting to the 2 Yamainu soldiers but they were able to keep their cool and calm when they saw Smith and Jones running into the office. Taking the risk, the soldiers dart through the wall of flames (at the thinnest point they can find) and duck underneath a window in front of the office. Inside, Smith and Jones look out the exit. "The two soldiers must be out there. I'll go first and investigate" Smith ordered.
"OK, but be careful. They could strike out from anywhere..." Jones warned as Smith walked out.
Slinking their way inside, one Yamainu soldier draws his Browning out of his holster. Getting up close inside, seeing Jones by the doorway, the Yamainu soldier aims his pistol and fires at Jones - killing him with a clean headshot . Smith hears the fire and sees the Yamainu soldier preparing to fire his pistol at him. Dropping his rifle, Smith draws his Glock quicker and aims at the soldier, killing him through the window . The remaining Yamainu soldier fires his Howa at Smith but Max, peering through the door of the metal crate fires his Taurus at the soldier and kills him .
"You OK?" Payne yells "Yeah I'm fine!" Smith replies from behind the flames. Walking through the safe spot on the dying wall of fire, Smith makes his way to Max saying "C'mon. Jones is dead. Let's get out before--" but he couldn't complete his sentence as he is shot in the head by Miyo wielding her MP5 . Cringing at the sight of the fallen agent, Max cowers inside the metal crate as silently as he could, but as he does, his hand touches something wooden - and perfect for Max to use. Miyo continues to fire her MP5 hoping to get Max's attention. "You know you can't hide from me, Payne!" Miyo hauntingly exclaimed. "You can't stop me from unleashing hell on Earth!" As she walked further inside towards the body of Smith, she let out a small chuckle "I have killed off your men, Mr Payne. And now, it's time for you to die!"
"Not if I kill you first, bitch!" Payne yelled as he leapt out from the crate wielding a baseball bat.Thinking quickly, Miyo unsheathes her nightstick but unfortunately she isn't quick enough as she is tackled to the ground. Max holds the bat high into the air but Miyo kicks him out of the way. She then swings her baton at Max, managing to strike him in a few areas but otherwise, Max dodges the attacks. He himself tries to swing at Miyo with the bat but his blows are blocked by Miyo's swing of the nightstick. The duo duel and dodge and hit each other for a while, but eventually, both warriors tires out (but Miyo tires out first). Max takes one swing of the bat and knocks Miyo to the ground close to a water drain. Miyo struggles to hold her will, but eventually rolls away before the bat smashes into the pipe and both pipe and bat break. Before Max could react, Miyo jumps right behind him and swings her baton, knocking Max to the floor near the burst pipe (a complete role reversal! Ha!). As Max struggles to get up, Miyo towers above him wiping the blood from her nightstick "Well, it looks like I've won..." she smirked. "You know what, Mr Payne..." she began to lecture (while Max silently grabs the pipe and tries to wrest it free) "You were quite a force to be dealt with. I don't know much about you, but what I know is this..." she raises the baton, handle on the same trajectory as Max's face, "You are never going to stop me!
"Says you, fucker!" Max retorts and with all his might, detaches the pipe and swings it, hitting Takano square on the temple and causing her to collapse to the floor and bleed out. Satisfied yet out of breath, Max slowly gets up and walks around the body of his fallen opponent. He took out his Taurus and aimed it for her face. Looking up at the barrel, Miyo whispered in a sinister but weak voice "You cannot stop me, I have the power of Oyashiro-Sama. I AM OYASHIRO-SAMA AND I WILL MAKE YOU PAY!"
"Whatever, bitch!" Max spat before he pulled the trigger . For a second, Max looked down on his opponent's corpse. He had finally done it - taken down a wanted terrorist. Avenging all those lost souls in Hinamizawa has given him the closure he needs. Now all he must do is report his success.
Walking out of the warehouse, Max opened up his cellphone and dialled the DEA. "Yes, Mr Payne" the operator on the line asked "Get me Director Carver! Tell him to have additional men come and collect me at the dockside. Takano is down and eliminated" he stopped to look at the fallen bodies "but my men were killed in the process. Also, have him send a drug testing kit, the illegal substance she was trying to import is secure. I repeat package is secure." Flicking off his cellphone, he looks to the ambulance and inspects the contents. "Oh my god..." Max muttered as he surveyed the layout of syringes in front of him. Unknown to him, one syringe of the Hinamizawa syndrome was shot and the inner liquid leaked out from behind the crate and into the water below. Takano thought she needed a whole supply, but maybe one sample of the virus is all she needs... (Chun, chun, chun!)
Winner: Max Payne
This was a very close battle but in the end, the result came down to this. Miyo and her Yamainu troops had the better training, melee weapon, explosive weapon and special weapon but these edges weren't enough to cancel out Max's superior strength and agility (and mentality) and the DEA's better short, medium and long range firearms (and Max's Taurus pistol too). If you feel like this battle is unfair in any way, shape or form, by all means go ahead and do a rematch.
Battle vs. Revy (by SPARTAN 119)
Revy crept through the dark woods near Hinamizawa, Japan, towards a quarry which was actually a hidden weapons cache used by the Yamainu. Revy and the rest of the Lagoon Compay had been hired to steal a sample of a deadly new bioweapon, the Hinamizawa virus. Rock had gotten her into Japan, now it was her turn to burst in, eliminate the guards and steal the bioweapon.
Several Yamainu foot soldiers milled about in the quarry, having no idea what was about to happen. Revy took aim with her M79 grenade launcher from the edge of the forest and fired a 40mm round at a group of three Yamainu, which exploded in the middle of them, killing all three.
"Surprise, motherfuckers!", Revy yelled.
Two more Yamainu ran out of a building concealing a tunnel under the quarry. Revy jumped onto a pile of gravel and slid down, into the quarry itself as she drew her PM-63 and fired a long burst at the Yamainu, killing all three.
As Revy took cover, Miyo Takano walked out of the building. Catching a glimpse of Revy diving behind the pile of gravel, Takano grabbed the RPG-7 off a fallen Yamainu and fired it at the gravel. The rocket exploded, throwing pieces of gravel everywhere.
A ringing filled Revy's ears as the rocket exploded in front of her, but the force of the explosion was focused on the other side of the pile, leaving Revy shaken, but unarmed. Revy abandoned her PM-63 and drew her "Cutlasses".
"You want to fuck with me too, huh!", Revy said, firing a hail of bullets at Takano, who only barely managed to evade, diving under a gigantic front-end loader, before running behind a rock crusher. Takano peeked out from cover and fired her MP5SD at Revy, but only managing the graze her side with a bullet.
"You bitch!", Revy shouted angrily, as she let loose once again with her "Cutlasses", forcing Miyo run into a second, smaller building, formerly a dynamite storage building turned into an armory. Miyo grabbed a Howa Type 64 assault rifle and fired a burst of fire at Revy, but all of the shots missed.
Revy spotted where the shots came from, noticing the orange sign warning of an explosive storage, and smiled darkly. Revy grabbed an RPG-7 off a fallen Yamainu soldier and took aim at the building Takano took cover inside. Revy fired, sending the rocket towards the corrugated aluminum shed. The shed exploded in a flash of fire, sending fragments everywhere, vaporizing Takano in the blast.
Revy walked away from the explosion, towards the main building, in search of the sample she was sent here to steal.
Revy won this battle because of her greater combat experience and superior weapon. While Takano may have had superior training, her experience was mostly limited to massacring unarmed civilians, while Revy has engaged in combat with a variety of skilled, heavily armored, and highly dangerous adversaries, such as Roberta Cisneros.
Battle vs. Shuuichiro Sakaki (by SPARTAN 119)
Shuuichiro Sakaki walked into an abandoned village in the forest around Jouga-machi where he had hidden his bomb-making materials in the back of a rental truck. Unknown to him, the village was one of a number of sites Miyo Takano had used to store her large stash of chemical weapons and Hinamizawa virus samples.
Sakaki climbed out of the back of the truck and spotted Takano entering an abandoned shack where she kept her collections of hydrogen sulfide grenades.
Sakaki could not allow her to witness his actions, so he decided he had to eliminate her. Sakaki drew his Nambu Model 60 revolver and fired two shots at Takano.
Just as Sakaki was about to fire, she spotted him, and Takano dove out of the way, behind a low stone wall. Miyo Takano drew her M1911 and fired three shots, narrowly missing Sakaki and hitting the truck, causing sparks to fly from where the bullet blew through the thin metal skin of the truck bed.
Sakaki ran down behind the truck and took cover behind the engine block. After a few more second seconds, he leaned out and fired three more shots. One of the bullets struck Takano's lower torso, causing her to drop her gun and fall to the ground, clutching her wound.
Having expended the five-round cylinder in his revolver, Sakaki rounded on his wounded adversary as he pulled out a switchblade from his pocket. Takano crawled and tried to reach from her gun, which had fallen several feet away.
However, before she got near it, Sakaki thrust his switchblade into her back several time. Takano coughed up blood as the blade pierced her lungs. Sakaki then made one final strike, a cut across the throat, finishing her.
After he had dispatched his attacker, Shuuichiro Sakaki collected her Colt 1911 and ammo. He had no idea why the woman had the weapon, but it would no doubt come in useful. But, as he looked into a partially opened shed, he realized the M1911 wasn't the only piece of useful loot.
Inside were a number of gas grenades, as well as large number of syringes and canisters marked as "Biohazard". And, on top of a stack of boxes was a folder labeled "CLASSIFIED TOP SECRET".
This piqued Sakaki's interest as he opened it and found a number of interesting documents; lab reports on it's effects: Paranoia, auditory and visual hallucinations, delusional parasitosis, uncontrollable violent impulses, suicidal impulses...
At that moment, Sakaki realized he had been handed a far deadlier weapon in his arsenal. He wouldn't have to bomb the Jougamachi dam or sabotage the flood gates. All he needed to do was release the virus into the reservior that was the main drinking water supply for the town, and virus would take care of the rest.
Sakaki picked up the first canister and loaded it into the truck.
WINNER: Shuuichiro Sakaki
Shuuichiro Sakaki won this fight in spite of his less powerful handgun and lesser training because of his greater physical strength, slightly greater experience in close combat, as well as his higher level of mental health, making him less likely to make mistakes.
Battle vs. Edward Richtofen (by Pygmy Hippo 2)
Shi No Numa
It had only been a month after Hinamizawa before Miyo Takano searched for her newest research venture, proving her adopted father right was great but she needed to keep working for those damn politicians if she wanted to keep living. Luckily her interest in WW2 IJA experiments led her to a facility run with the help of their German allies where it was rumored the living dead still roamed. The undead didn't scare Oyashiro-sama however and her Yamainu vigilantly stood at her side waiting for anything to dare interrupt her search for clues as to how to restart the project if it even existed.
Even Miyo was skeptical but then a loud boom echoed throughout the area and caused the team to ready their firearms. However nothing came but the scientist sent two of her Yamainu to investigate the location it came from to check what it was. "あなた二人、それが何であるかを調べに行きます" (You two, go check what that was.) Takano's men followed her orders and crept through the bushes to see a group of people who looked like they had cone from WW2 walking around in the former Doctor's Quarters.
One Wehrmacht recruit stood far from the building and took a bathroom break after the teleporting experience upset his bowels. "あなたはそれで何をしていますか？高野は私たちを殺すでしょう！" (What are you doing with that?! Takano will have us killed!) "私はその建物では発砲していません。" (I'm not firing at the building.) The Yamainu fired his RPG-7 at the unfortunate man outside who looked up and screamed as the 85mm round blew him to smithereens. "Was zur Hölle war das?!" (What the hell was that?!) The distraction worked and Edward Richtofen ran out of the building with his troops to see scorched earth and a puddle of blood.
They didn't have time to mourn as a pair of MP5SDs opened fire and took down another Wehrmacht recruit with bullets to the neck and torso. The Yamainu members hit Edward in the shoulder but made a fatal mistake as they stopped firing in surprise as his weapon glowed before firing. The Wunderwaffe DG-2's lightning bolt charred both of them before they could even make a sound and the corpses stood still for a second before toppling over. "Pathetisch, prüfe, ob es noch mehr gibt." (Pathetic, check if there's more.)
The Wehrmacht recruits made it up the hill to see more Yamainu members and the one in front gunned down one of them with his MP-40 before falling backwards due to a .45 ACP round hitting him between the eyes. Miyo's Colt M1911 was still smoking as she and her remaining man ran into the Communications Room and Richtofen slapped his remaining man as he mourned his friend's demise. "Nach ihnen du kleiner Scheißer!" (After them you little shit!) The old radios made excellent cover for any hiding attackers and the recruit ran inside like a madman and saw Takano after rounding a corner who he smacked with the butt of his gun. "Du Schlampe! Ich bring dich um!" (You bitch! I'll kill you!)
Miyo just grinned as the Yamainu rammed the Wehrmacht member into the wall before slitting his throat with his Scalpel and kept on carving until his eyes rolled back. Another shot rang out afterwards and the last man yelled in pain and fell over as his leg was hit before his arm was hit next and the last thing he saw was Edward's maniacal grin as he stabbed him between the eyes with a Bowie Knife. The two scientists' grins didn't faze either of them and they holstered their pistols and blades, sensing a moment to get to know someone like them before slaughtering each other like anyone else in their way.
"Bist du ein Nazi?" (Are you a Nazi?) "明らかにIJA？" (Obviously. IJA?) "Nein, ich arbeite für ihre Nachkommen." (No, I work for descendants of them.) "私は自分自身で特定のグループのために働いていました。" (I worked for a specific group myself.) "While I can speak Takeo's language, I prefer speaking in Dempsey's, I've gotten used to it." "English? I can speak it as well, doesn't really matter much does it though? All who challenge Oyashiro-sama die of the curse." "A curse or Schtabbing?" Both cackled at the joke before pulling out their blades again. "Anyways talking is boring, I live for the BLOOD!" "Been a while since the last sacrifice!"
The two lunged at each other and surprisingly despite acting like rabid animals, neither could manage to inflict more than minor wounds but Richtofen realized his reach advantage and stood his ground like a mighty bear, keeping his foe at bay with swings and taking a stab when the opportunity presented itself. Takano, like a opportunistic tiger, saw her own chance and kicked her opponent in the groin, causing him to gasp in pain and collapse before she plunged her Scalpel downwards. Unfortunately that left her open to a Bowie Knife stab to HER groin and a clip-point blade hurt much worse than a boot, causing her to shriek in agony and drop her blade as she rolled in pain.
Edward's grin grew wider as he drove the Bowie Knife into Miyo's back, hitting what he believed to be a kidney and dragged the blade across her body, severing her spine and taking out the other one in the process. As he raised the Knife for the final blow, the German doctor heard something and dragged the Japanese scientist outside to the hill where a horde of awakened zombies waited at the bottom. "N-いいえ！" (N-no!) "Auf Wiedersehen!" (Goodbye!) Richtofen tossed Takano to the undead before taking his hat off and drawing his Luger P08, merely reloading the pistol and waving as she was torn in half and her entrails were devoured by the undeadbefore walking away to get his glorious Wunderwaffe DG-2 back from the desk he left it on.
Both of these psychotic scientists had advantages with their diverse arsenals, Edward Richtofen's longer Bowie Knife ensured an edge at Short Range and his Wunderwaffe DG-2 inflicted far more damage as a Special Weapon but Miyo Takano's Colt M1911 was the better pistol from WW2 at Mid Range and the MP5SD was the far more technologically advanced Long Range SMG. In X-Factors however, Edward dominated with his superior length and quality of experience, his mind was more suited for combat, and his mental health actually helped his capabilities in battle while Miyo's hindered her and her Yamainu members barely beat out the Wehrmacht recruits.To see the original battle, weapons, and votes, click here.

Battle vs. Walter White (by SPARTAN 119)
Somewhere outside of Albequerque, NM
Miyo Takano turned her unmarked white van down a gravel county road, leaving a cloud of dust behind her like the tail of a comet. The road wound through barren plains of sagebrush and cacti, past pinyon and juniper-covered mesas, and into a sheltered box canyon where a few cottonwoods and ponderosa pine marked the path of dry arroyo.
Miyo had been fleeing the police for weeks since her failed attempt to unleash the Hinamizawa Syndrome in Los Angeles, which cost the lives of all of the Yamainu foot soldiers she had with her. Now, she had a million-dollar bounty on her head.
Takano was sure she had left the police behind on Interstate 40, but she had taken this detour just to be sure. Up ahead, Miyo saw an old RV parked at the side of the road. Bald-headed man looking to be about 50 walked out of the vehicle.
Walter White looked at the vehicle approaching him, it appeared to be a white, unmarked "kidnapper van". Walt kept his hand on the Ruger LCR concealed on his person, in case it was another assassin after his life, like those those cousins that attacked Hank.
Then, Walt saw exactly who was in the car, it was a Japanese-looking woman, whose hair was dyed blonde. He recognized that face from the news, that psychotic scientist, Miyo Takano, who tried to unleash a deadly virus in LA.
Walt had heard she was wanted for a million dollars, dead or alive. That would be an excellent addition to the already considerable inheritance he had amassed for his family. Walter drew the LCR, he could not take her in alive, her testimony might draw unwanted attention.
Walter drew the small revolver and fired three shots, one grazing Takano's side, one shattering the windshield, and the third shooting out the right front tire.
Takano drew her Colt M1911 and returned fire, forcing Walt the take cover by behind the RV. Takano then got out a Howa Type 64 she had hidden under the passenger seat and got out of the car. Miyo then fired at the RV, forcing Walt the flee vehicle and take cover behind a boulder on the canyon wall.
While he was at the RV, however, Walt grabbed an M4 from the vehicle and returned fire, forcing Takano the dive behind engine block of her car. While Takano was suppressed, Walt ra behind several pinyon and juniper trees, breaking up his outline, before reaching a second car... one with a hidden surprise in the trunk....
Walt opened the trunk and grabbed the M60 machine gun hidden inside, before standing behind the engine block and resting the bipod on the hood of the car. Walt took aim the van and held down the trigger.
Takano's van was riddled with bullets, and after about a second, a tracer round hit the gas tank, causing the van to go up in a ball of flames. Takano rolled out of the way of the explosion and took cover behind large rock formation.
Miyo took aim with an RPG-7 and fired it at the car Walt took cover behind. Walt saw the rocket launch and jumped out of the way, rolling down several feet into the dry stony bed of the arroyo as the car exploded, the remaining M6O ammo cooking off with a sound like firecrackers in the flaming wreck.
Walt got into a prone position and crawled several feet down the arroyo, to a dense clump of tamarisk. Takano, clearly thinking she had won, walked over the investigate the RV. Takano walked in to find an impressive collection of chemistry equipment, as several large bags of light blue crystal meth.
Suddenly, the windows burst out, several 5.56mm bullets flying just to her right. Walt adjusted his aim again, but he was not aiming for Takano. The bullets instead impacted a package of what looked like crystal meth on the counter. But this was no meth, as Takano found out when it exploded in a flash of fire.
It has worked with Tuco, and, sure enough, mercury fulminate did the job again, sending the RV up with a thunderous roar, setting off the other volatile chemicals. The explosion blew apart the RV and threw Takano out the window, where her shrapnel-riddled body slammed into a boulder.
After several seconds, Walter got up to see Miyo's body lying against the wall, shards of glass and metal stuck in her chest, her limbs mangled at odd angles by the explosions. All Walt had to do now was come up with a believable story of how this all happened...
While Takano has some combat training and was in better health, Walter White had far greater combat experience. While Walt successfully took over the Albuquerque drug market, by force when necessary, Takano's plays were screwed up by a bunch of kids. Also contributing to the victory was the superior firepower of Walt's long-range weapons.To see the original battle, weapons, and votes, click here.
