    Default Who Will Kill Xykon?

    I've been wondering who will kill Xykon (or make him more deader), because he is gonna be killed by the end of the comic, I personally think it will be one of three people (though I imagine other people might have other theories).
    1. Roy: It makes sense, the protagonist, the blood oath, and all that (making him somewhat unlikely to actually strike the killing blow)
    2. Redcloak: He's almost certainly going to start helping the good guys at the end, and he has the phylactery making it easiest for him to kill him, especially after the body is destroyed.
    3. Belkar: I imagine this one is less obvious, but I feel like it would be appropriate for his final act to be unequivically Good, and he would likely die killing Xykon (maybe his final moments will involve the clasp no longer hurting him).

    Roy, with an assist from RC.

    The scouring of the Shire never happened. That's right. After reading books I, II, and III, I stopped reading when the One Ring was thrown into Mount Doom. The story ends there. Nothing worthwhile happened afterwards. Middle-Earth was saved.

    Redcloak's niece.

    I have to agree with Roy and Redcloak. Roy to take him out and Redcloak to make it permanent.

    I kinda wanna say Belkar because it'd be appropiate, but everything else I can think of says 60% chance Roy 40% RC.

    Considering Mr. Burlew is on record as saying things will ultimately come down to Roy vs. Xykon, I don't think this is in question.

    Roy will perform the heroic badass thing (beat Xykon's body) while Redcloak will play the part that completes his character arc (getting ridden of Xykon and giving up on the plan).

    Technically he is undead
    So he will be unkilled

    Xykon's already killed, and Redcloak did it as part of his lichification. Xykon, being undead, has been dead since the start of the comic, and so can't be killed.

    Redcloak betrays Xykon, Xykon (or MitD) knocks him out. Roy comes in, gets taken out (paralyzed?). Rest of the party weakens Xykon, but fails to defeat him. Xykon gloats. Redcloak's dying breath is to bring Roy back to shape, who retakes his weapon, come back to Xykon, and kills him with a perfect mega green flaming eye critical move.

    So kinda like the vampire fight, but RC is Durkon, and Roy is Belkar. :P

    Alternative scenario:
    Xykon faces the Order. Belkar charges, accidentally gets tossed into the gate. Roy attacks. Xykon MSwarms him, pushing Roy back. Durkon prepares buffs.
    As a completely unrelated occurrence, a rock falls and crushes Xykon.

    I think it's been fairly well lampshaded that he'll lose to a wizard in a master class of preparation and out of the box thinking, so V I guess

    Only if throwing a high level Fighter (Roy) at Xykon is part of the wizard (Vaarsuvius)'s well prepared and ingenious plan.

    Hilariously, this scene was pretty much how things with Tarquin actually played out around here.

    It would only be funny if Roy didn't kill* Xykon, if only for Roy's dad to go, "NOOOO! Now I'll NEVER get out of limbo because of this blood oath!"

    The blood oath just stops him from heading to the afterlife for as long as Xykon remains in existence. The moment Xykon dies, regardless of the means by which he does so, Eugene gets to go into the afterlife.

    That's not how it's worded though. It specifically states that he will not rest until he or his heirs has exacted horrible vengeance on Xykon.

    If some random stranger does, maybe he's trapped.

    So if Roy destroys his skeleton and then Redcloak destroys the phylactery while he's in it, Eugene is stuck?
