“Get ready for the next battle”

Films: Jiu Jitsu (2020)

Alias: None

Type: Alien

Location: Eldritch location/Jungle/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: You know that irritating neighbor that won't stop showing up at your house no matter how many times you tell them to go away? Now imagine if said neighbor was trying to kill you every time he showed up. And he was an alien adept at martial arts and honorable fights to the death.

History: Every six years, a comet soars above the Earth, and a portal opens up in a sacred temple located in Burma. From there, an alien warrior known as Brax shows up, and challenges a set number of humans to combat. If he's satisfied with his battle, he leaves until next time. If not, he'll kill all humans. To give us a sporting chance, he taught ancient man our modern martial arts, including the all-powerful Jiu Jitsu. Now, he's back, and a person he chased off a cliff is back, along with a crew of warriors led by none other than his dad, who's also played by Nicolas Cage.

Notable Kills: One alien against no less than three efficient warriors. Alien wins by a landslide.

Final Fate: After a fierce battle with the one that got away, Brax finds himself beaten to the point where his suit starts to glitch. However, upon trying to reenter the portal, a couple grenades are thrown into an open wound of his, so when the portal closes, he explodes. Whether there will be more like him or not is unclear.

Powers/Abilities: Brax can heal from almost any injury. He also has shurikens, super speed, wrist blades, a large katana, a superheated touch, and proficiency in just about every combat style.

Weakness: Enough damage to him can cause his suit to malfunction. Also, damaging him from the inside makes for a more permanent fix.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-Let's be fair here, Brax looks a bit on the low-budget side of things. While his suit altogether looks cool, when you see what he looks like behind it, it looks like some brute's ugly face smushed against glass. That being said, while he is an honorable opponent for the most part, his near-endless arsenal and combat ability makes him a foe no one can afford to underestimate.

Trivia: -This film was based on a 2017 comic of the same name. This is paid homage to through the various panel transitions that occur.

-Jiu Jitsu, also known as the yielding art, was specifically designed in Feudal Japan to counter armored opponents, particularly samurai. The most anyone wields is a short weapon, as the goal is to use the opponent's own force against them. This technique would branch into more modern martial arts like Judo and Sambo.
