This is my attempt at a roleplay scenario...
These are simple, hypothetical challenges. You will come in as a regular human, either as a trained individual, or a fresh newbie. Real-world physics and biology apply; exaggerated concepts will only apply to the features of each challenge. Playing with the idea of steroids is allowed, but keep in mind that steroids in real life focus on recovery speed, not a sudden grant of strength. Your health and knowledge on how to use steroids will apply. Fictional forms of drugs are not allowed. Your training may be inspired by fiction, while obeying our world’s definition of possible.
The rewards are physical abilities. Apologies if that doesn’t interest you.
Challenge No. 1: Shoulder/Carry the Heaviest Atlas Stone
The stone is a custom made implement that appears to be like the average atlas stone, however it weighs ~1,200 lbs.
Support equipment (wraps, a belt, lifting vest, and high-tech extensions) is prohibited. Altering the stone is not allowed. Tacky and chalk is allowed.
Set-up time is 1 hour, and 30 minutes. You must hold the stone on your shoulder for at least 10 seconds before dropping it. If carrying the stone was chosen, then you must walk 400 meters with the atlas stone. You will receive a bonus reward for shouldering the stone clean (in one motion); carrying the stone for an additional 400 meters will earn you the bonus reward, as well.
Reward: Supernatural Strength (Type III)
Bonus Reward: Absolute Strength+Raw Power
Challenge No. 2: Defeat the Strongest Gorilla
This gorilla looks moderately normal. Within, it was modified to be extremely passionate about combat, similar to how some humans are. It was trained by the best to master its primate body and mind.
Support equipment (Gloves, pads, clothes, firearms, and high-tech extensions) is prohibited. Melee weapons longer than 35 inches are prohibited. You may not use more than two weapons. Toxins are prohibited. Light hand and feet wraps are allowed.
Both combatants must finish within 1 hour, and 30 minutes. You will be provided with weapon options beforehand, if you haven’t brought your own; you may only pick two, and the gorilla has full freedom to snatch your weapons during the fight. Completion time is not important. You will be given a bonus for ending the fight in one blow.
Reward: Supernatural Combat
Bonus Reward: Absolute Combat+Raw Power
For some reason, there are way too many grand martial artists. Thinking all of them are absolute seems ridiculous for me.
Absolute Combat allows feats like conceptual damage, Absolute Attack, Absolute Defence, Absolute Counter, Absolute Unpredictability, Absolute Weapon Proficiency, Absolute Unarmed Combat... I see the lists of users and I realise just few of them truly quality for this level.
For instance, Levi (Attack no Titan). Isn't he basically peak human or at best enhanced combat? Because it doesn't seem to me he can do conceptual damage, counter anything or master any weapon to absolute degree. His combat capabilities can be further increased, so how the heck is he a user?
The same thing with Oogway. Although I agree he's truly unbelievably powerful, the most powerful feat he has ever demonstrated is Chi Combat. That's it, in the third film his powers were stolen by Kai and he became as powerful as Oogway. Nonetheless, even Kai was defeated by overburst of Po's chi. I mean, AC doesn't work like that. If Oogway was indeed Grand Martial Artist, Kai would need the same power to beat him. And there's no way for loose that easily. Everything Kai does is simply transcendent combat skills that suits Enhanced Combat, at best supernatural.
I think we could continue disqualification of numerous other users but I think you got me. Being the strongest combatant in specific franchise doesn't make you user of Absolute Combat because your capabilities must be utterly absolute to that point that you could no longer augment them. Why are all of those fake users there?
