Fandom Mashup #90

Fandom Mashups
Fandom Mashups is an original feature here at Lunar Rainbows Reviews.  Every week, I propose a unique fictional scenario and then we build our own personal dream team of five fictional characters from five different fandoms to complete the task!  Anyone is welcome to join up - all I ask is that you link back to me somewhere in your post :)

Hi all!  Happy Sunday!  I have a very busy work week coming up which I'm not especially looking forward to. I'm definitely going to make the most of today though...apparently by travelling back in time:

You find yourself in ancient Rome lined up to become a Gladiator. Woah.  The one upside is that you get to pick your own team to train you up for the task. Who do you pick?

Maximus Decimus Meridius

Clearly the inspiration for this topic, I'm not doing anything Gladiator-like without Maximus! He is the KING.  Honestly though, Gladiator is one of my all-time favorite movies ♥

Celaena Sardothien

Dual swords, a kick-ass attitude and survival skills like nobody's business. If Celaena can't train me up into a fierce warrior, I don't know who can!


Speaking of dual-swords^^ Zuko wouldn't even need to learn swords with his Fire-Bending but he takes it upon himself to become EPIC.  Mission accomplished!

Kaladin Stormblessed

Kaladin is a fierce warrior and a survivor if I ever heard of one. His skills are legendary and they've saved his life more times than either of us can count! He'll be a huge asset here.

Obi Wan Kenobi

Let's face it: Lightsabers are basically swords made of light and Obi Wan has SKILLS. Anyone who can face that crazy mofo^^ is a boss Jedi.

Who would you want to train you up as a Gladiator?


  1. Fantastic! I didn't have time to post one this week, but Celaena and Meridius were both on my short list. I haven't even seen The Gladiator yet and I knew I wanted that guy. XD
    I would have picked Chaol Westfall, Tom Keen, and Butler too.

  2. "are you not entertained?" LOVE that one. Maximus is totally this topic. And Obi- Wan... I know Celaena and Kaladin from reputation. I'd say this is a pretty boss team. Watch out gladiators! :)

  3. This is such a fun scenario! (Not that I'd think that if it actually happened, of course). Zuko's a great choice! I sometimes forget just how talented that guy is when it comes to combat, but then he does spend his entire childhood and early adolescence trying to prove himself to his douchebag father.

  4. Training with Zuko, Celaena, and Obi-Wan? YES, PLEASE! XD Just training with any one of them would be incredible, but to observe ALL their mad skills firsthand? It would be amazingness overload, LOLOL!

  5. This is an excellent team of trainers! You'd end up very well rounded. They'd all know some interesting tips and tricks.

  6. Fun! Great choices! I think I'd also want Hermione and Sirius Black and maybe Percy Jackson.


I LOVE comments & do my best to return every one a.s.a.p. ♥
