so, dracula has finally shown up on deadliest warrior. you know they've been waiting with baited breath to do this one. i'm a bit surprised as sun tzu has his match-up. maybe it would have been more interesting to put alexander the great vs. sun tzu. then maybe genghis khan vs. vlad tepes?
the most interesting thing about this episode was i learned something very, very important. there really IS something called a "hand cannon." i always just thought that was a slang term for a large caliber pistol. but, come to find out, there actually IS a hand-held cannon! and it even has a hook on it so you can use it to clobber enemies in melee combat. which you will be in if you fail to kill your foe with the hand cannon because it takes about a minute to reload.
i have really gotten sun tzu's weapons a bit confused with the ming warriors they had the next episode fighting the french musketeers. both of these episodes showed highly creative weapons which are quite destructive. however, when your enemy has iron armor as well as firearms, they have an incredible advantage. so, both sun tzu and the ming warriors lost. but, at least the musketeers did not use the same method of celebration of victory that dracula did in the sketch.
