Okay, maybe that wasn't terribly informative... I told you Xelloss was secretive! Oh well, let's take a look at the matchup.
You can see how this one might start. Someone's there in Saillune, minding their own business, when they see something suspicious! They suspect it's just some low-level mazoku messing around, so they call 1-800-GHOSTBUSTERS to solve the problem. Trusty secretary Janine takes the call and passes it on to the guys. Within minutes, Ecto-1 comes bursting out of the Firehouse, sirens blaring and headed for Saillune. When they get there, Egon and Ray bust out the PKE-meters, looking for the offending spirit. Meanwhile, Peter will start flirting with the locals.
But little do they know that Xelloss the Mysterious Priest is watching them from a nearby rooftop! While they're unloading the Proton Packs, he's plotting to show these guys who's really going to get "busted" here! First, he'll probably try the same trick he used with Lina and the rest. He'll come strolling around a corner, introduce himself as some innocent priest, and say he's looking for the same apparition that was reported to the 'Busters. Ahhhh, but Egon's too smart for that! With a high-level mazoku standing righ there, the PKE-meter will be off the scale. So he'll blurt out some techno-jargon about a free-floating class IV specter, which Ray will translate to the more helpful, "That's our ghost!"
Perhaps Xelloss's reaction to being called a mere "ghost" will be better than his reaction to Filia's colorful descriptions of him, but it probably won't be pretty. Normally he would disappear, to return later and annoy the protagonists. But for the sake of our story here, let's assume it's Slayers Fight! time! Will the Ghostbusters get lucky and trap Xelloss in a confinement beam? Will Xelloss attack on the astral plane, or even the physical one? Is this the most ridiculous situation you've ever heard of?
Despite the creative liberties we've taken to even set up this match, you may think that the outcome was forgone before it started. All the Golden Dragons failed to best the trickster priest, and now four guys from New York are going to take him down? "I don't think so," I can hear you saying (Actually, I can hear some of you saying, "Yeah, have the Ghostbusters take out that annoying so-and-so!" But that's besides the point).
Maybe I'm stuck in the 80's, but I think the Ghostbusters have a chance in this fight. Think about it: what's the one effective weapon against Xelloss? Swords or sorcery have little effect, but Ameria's "Life is Wonderful!" speeches actually weaken him! Since mazoku feed on negative emotion, positive thinking can hit them like an attack. And how did the 'Busters come out on top in their second movie? Literally! They climbed to the top of the Statue of Liberty and rallied the positive emotions of New York to combat the negative energies their opponent was using. So, if they can find a suitable landmark to rally the people around, I think they could win this one. And if Ameria's in town, well, let's just say that Zellas Metalliom better start looking for a new purple-clad priest!
The Winner: The Ghostbusters!!
Up Next: Slimer vs. Noonsa!
