Ellen Ripley
Ripley vs. Lee

We've already seen what Ripley can do when she's pitted against a horde of vile aliens, but what will happen when she faces off against the Zen-like martial arts master? Sure, Lee doesn't have acid spit, razor-sharp claws or a retractable mouth, but he's just as fast and twice as smart. Can he do what the aliens couldn't and outwit Ripley, or will Lee be blown to bits by his opponent's pulse rifle?

Winner: Lee

Ellen Ripley

Sigourney Weaver, "Alien"
We haven’t seen the Weyland-Yutani Corporation’s year-end newsletter for 2179, but surely Ellen Ripley’s their Employee of the Year. While on the USCSS Nostromo, Ripley was involved in the discovery of a Xenomorph on Moon LV- 426, leading her on a four-film path where she slaughtered salivating, acid- blooded aliens at every turn and doing the Colonial Marines proud with her handling of an M41A pulse rifle. Oh, sure, she blew up the Nostromo and the colony on LV-426, then killed herself, thereby destroying the alien embryo growing inside her and preventing the Corporation from studying the creature…but her attendance record? Spotless!

Definitive badass moment: When, on the U.S.S. Solaco, she dons the exosuit and drops the alien queen into the airlock and, subsequently, into outer space.

Classic badass line: “Get away from her, you bitch!

Seed: #2
Occupation: Warrant officer, Weyland-Yutani Corporation
Strengths: Often underestimated because she’s a woman
Weaknesses: Occasionally paranoid, her tendency to do things “by the books” could backfire
Bracket History: Defeated #15 Don Logan in round 2, 77%-23%

Bruce Lee, "Enter the Dragon"
He may be a man of few words, but don’t let Lee’s gentle, philosophical outlook on life trick you into letting down your guard. You definitely wouldn’t want to step into the same ring as this guy. After learning that an evil crimelord is responsible for the death of his sister, Lee makes his way to a secret martial arts tournament to exact revenge. It’s there that Lee so easily thrashes an army of goons, bare- hands a King Cobra, and cracks three (count ‘em, three) necks, all while resisting the temptation of Han’s harem of seductive Asian escorts. Oh yeah, and he can play a mean guitar too.

Definitive badass moment: After getting sliced in the torso by Han’s metal claw, Lee calmly tastes his own blood and then delivers the smack down.

Classic badass line: (When asked what style of martial arts he practices) “You can call it the art of fighting without fighting.”

Seed: #7
Occupation: Currently unemployed
Strengths: Quick and strong, his trademark war cry
Weaknesses: Naïve and inexperienced
Bracket History: Defeated #10 Shaft in round 2, 79%-81%
