    Default The Tournament of Power (DBS): Lantern Edition!

    So, the same rules, setting, and lineups from Dragon Ball Super apply here, but a 9th team joins them: representatives from DC's Lantern Corps! For the purposes of this thread, they're allowed the use of their rings. Elimination is by ring-out/BFR. Flight disabled (natural, ring-enabled, and otherwise). Gravity is natural for each individual. Killing = disqualification of the killer. The match is 48 minutes long.

    And, of course, the team losing means the end of the main DC universe.
    The Coaches/Observers/Non-Participants
    Kai: Ganthet
    GoD: Anti-Monitor
    Angel: The Spectre

    The Team:
    Atrocitus - Red
    Larfleeze - Orange
    Sinestro - Yellow
    Hal Jordan - Green, Leader
    Saint Walker - Blue
    Indigo - Indigo
    Carol Ferris - Violet
    Kyle Rayner - White
    Superman - Black (the most famous of DC deaths)
    Alan Scott - Green (Starheart)

    How does the team fare? How far do they get?

    BONUS: In what order is each team member eliminated?

    In a Rumble, they'd get STOMPED by Unverse 7, 6, 11, etc. Simply because in a Rumble, PIS is off: the INSANELY faster Goku and Vegeta would simply blast all of the slow-as-hell lanterns the hell off the board before any of them could think "speed me up, ring of whateverthefuckIwant!" Superman MIGHT be able to get out of the way, but he's not hiding forever, and will eventually get beaten by the equally fast, much stronger Goku and Vegeta.


    But in the ToP as it's been running, they could do fine. The ones with the rings that give them whatever the hell they want could get their speed up to snuff, amp shields, and then just use moving force walls and constructs to get people off the edge. And while flying is verboten, would it be against the rules for one lantern to raise up another onto a platform, from where he can both play overseer for the rest, and spam out shields and attacks from a place of "relative" safety?

    That's likely allowable since we've seen energy constructs, wings, and fighters running up the giant pillar (the tallest structure on the field) already, all as a means of escaping the edge.

    PIS off, unless they get targeted right out, autoshields should protect some of them long enough to start amping their speeds up, especially with Clark running interference. If they get their speed up, they win. Mass construct walls/shields capable of repelling supernova's push everyone off.

    PIS on, again, unless they get targeted right away, they get the time to amp and again, win.

    Well, PIS is ALWAYS off on Rumbles. And thanks to the common knowledge rule, dudes will know about Lanterns ability to do those things. So assuming those kinds of rules apply, again, Goku and Vegeta (or others equally silly) just blast these punks directly off the scene with "somewhere past solar-system busting blasts AT LEAST."
