The Cocky COCATRICE: Show Your Battle Contest
The Splinterlands team has started a new initiative and its called Show Your Battle Contest. Every week the team picks a theme and asks us Monster Manaics to showcase some battles that are in line with that theme. This weeks theme is .......
My Cocatrice and I have never backed down from a challenge and we don't intend on starting now. My Cocatrice is very Cocky and Jealous so hearing about all the praise this new monster called"Furious Chicken" been getting has rubbed him the wrong way.
It was no surprise to me when my Cocatrice claimed it wanted to decimate some chickens to showcase its own skills for this contest. He heard about the chickens past glory's and its undefeated backyard brawls but it scared him not.
My Cocatrice needed no training and went straight into seek and destroy mode. After-all the Furious Chicken is just a 0 MANA card how could it beat the great Cocatrice .....
The Cocatrice cockiness got the better of him. He went into battle thinking there was no way the chicken could land a blow on him. After-all many have tried to hit the mighty Cocatrice and many have failed. .... the Furious Chicken did not and was victorious.
Shamed and humiliated the Cocky Cacatrice went back home and told his fellow Cocatrice mates what happened. They were mean and DODGY ...... " Why didn't you use your dodge" ..... "How could you let that bird brain beat you", are just some of the things that were muttered to him.
Beaten and momentarily humbled the Cocatrice decided that he greatly underestimated the chicken (something he vowed never to do again) and he set out to get his revenge.
Word got back to the Furious chicken that his foe was coming back for a second battle so he got ready and proceeded to once again battle the Cocky Cocatrice on the battlefield of Splinterlands and just like their first battle it was a one vs. one battle .....
The battle was set in reverse speed which didn't favor the Cocatrice because speed was a big part of the Cocatrice battle strategy. Regardless of the rule set it was too late to back out now, the challenge was set and there could be only one winner.
The Cocatrice got his revenge and took home the win. The Furious Chickend didn't go down without a fight as it landed a strong first blow that removed half the Cocatrice health but when the Cocatrice decided to strike back it did so with great speed and accuracy. The Cocatrice blow completely overwhelmed the chicken and sent it to its demise.
While most Dragons live in Draykh-Nahka, the little miscreant known as Cocatrice can be found pretty much anywhere in the Splinterlands. Their favorite activity seems to be wrecking markets by night. In battle, they are annoyingly difficult to hit, and they never stop squawking.
