For what its worth, I just thought I should do this because several people liked the rivalry between Iron Tail and Evil Tail. Most of you already know how Iron Tail and Evil Tail met, and the fact that Evil Tail is temporarily using a doppelganger body of the young Hero following a magic spell to release him back physically into the outside world.
Y'all know the basics between the two: Iron Tail is a Hero and Evil Tail is a villain - one is good, one is bad; one is kind, one is cruel. Finding what makes them different from each other is easy in my opinion.
But what about the traits they actually share in common?
Let's take a look, shall we?
- Both Iron Tail and Evil Tail 'stepped out' into the outside world upon their debut: Iron Tail left his home for the first time, and Evil Tail left his imprisonment after being sealed away for 1000 years.
- In relation to that, the two escaped from their so-called 'prisons' because they both wished to get out and live their 'destinies'.
- They both had some sort of connections with the Great Hero: Iron Tail now owns the Bracelet that was once owned by the legendary figure and Evil Tail actually did battle with the Great Hero 1000 years ago.
- They are both 'Neutral' in their alignments: Iron is a Neutral Hero while Evil Tail is a Neutral Villain.
- Both are closely associated with a Darkmare albeit under different positions. Ashes is Iron Tail's 'mentor', while Sehsa is basically Evil Tail's 'slave'.
- They both have 'bracelets' around their tails though they both serve different purposes.
- Both believe that they need an opposing side to become what they are (A Hero needs a Villain, and a Villain needs a Hero).
- Both would actually prevent the other from dying for one reason or another if they can help it.
- They're both the 'leaders' of their group.
In fact, even the Darkmare sisters actually have less in common with each other!
Perhaps in another world and in another time, these two could have very well been 'brothers', but it's their destiny to be on opposite sides of the same coin.
