The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man put up a valiant fight, but Orochi’s fire breath was too much for him in the end. In Tuesday’s other bout, Grendel came back from an early deficit to knock the fan-favorite Brundlefly from his slimy perch. We’re down to 16 competitors in Monster Madness now.
The Blob has shown that it isn’t afraid of anything. It took on the Kraken with indifference as it oozed its way into the ocean and, apparently, filled the entirety of it with its pink, blobby mass. Now the Blob goes up against cinema’s most recognizable monster in Godzilla. However, this tournament isn’t afraid to throw out classic monsters at the whim of the people. Just as King Kong.
Godzilla – He’s terrorized so many cities and leveled so many buildings that he’s lost count – if giant radioactive lizards could count, that is. Now he goes up against one of the tournament’s most unassuming yet deadly foes. Does Godzilla have what it takes to counteract the Blob’s ever-expanding quest for the championship?
Secret Weapon: Godzilla’s sheer popularity should really help him in this match. I sure don’t want to vote Godzilla out simply because, dammit, it’s Godzilla!
The Blob – The asexual, oozing pink mass has claimed more victims than I ever thought possible. It took out the giant flaming Tanker Bug in the opening round, and recently dispatched the mighty Kraken. Is there anything the Blob can’t do? Is there anything he can’t kill?
Secret Weapon: Its seemingly indestructible, exponentially growing self has proved to be a huge advantage that leaves most voters in a conundrum. Most votes for the Blob boil down to the same rationalization: “How do you defeat a mass that grows without stopping?”

Huh. Now here’s a weird pairing. Chucky, cinema’s most evil demonically possessed doll, faces down cinema’s angriest group of fowls. Does Chucky have the fortitude and cunning to take out a swarming flock of deranged birds? Would they even attack him? Let’s say for sake of argument that they do. Will his hard plastic body hold up to the barrage of pecks?
Secret Weapon: Chucky has always shown magnificent smarts for a children’s play thing. His diabolical plans usually end up with someone lying in a pool of blood. Is it such a stretch to believe that he’d be able to think of something that could kill a bunch of birds?
Killer Birds – They’ve had sort of an easy road to the Slimy Sixteen. The birds first faced off against the Ghoulies, who didn’t provide much of a challenge. Then they set to ravenously tearing apart a few killer tomatoes. Can they keep the winning streak alive by finding a way to kill a beloved, yet malevolent doll?
Secret Weapon: Aerial attacks will come in handy here. Agility really isn’t Chucky’s strong suit. Outrunning or dodging a swarming death squadron from above might prove difficult.
