    Narnia would be ROFLSTOMPED in minutes.

    The flood would just spread like wildfire.

  2. EnigmaJ March 18, 2009 at 3:32 pm -      #2

    The flood would come suddenly and unforgivingly. The people of this world would be caught offgaurd and unprepared. As a result, many of the people ( humans, dwarfs, giants, and even the animals ) would die and be infected. Cair Paravel would be turned into a flood hive. Narnia would have to ally itself with its old allies and enemies ( courtesy of a hero protagonist ). The massive army of the flood would gather one side of a large valley. The remaining survivors of the outbreak would gather on the other side. Just when the moment seems bleakest for the Narnians, Aslan will arrive. He’ll roar triumphantly as the combat forms are changed magically back into thier original forms. To keep things dramatic, Aslan and our hero will lead the charge against the Gravemind and his army of pure forms, juggernauts etc. In the end, Aslan will be victorious over the gravemind and all the flood will be destroyed. Any remaining infection forms r spores should be vaped by Aslan’s will/presence ( that is unless we want a sequel =P ).

    Narnia will enter a Golden Age in which it and all other Kingdoms come together to reach a common goal. Rebuild.

    Probably be repulsed with a lot of arrows. The flood would be shithouse there. No guns, Just…..Them.

  4. Thepocalypse March 18, 2009 at 4:29 pm -      #4

    Narnia would get PWNed. They don’t have weapons or magic sufficient to stop the flood. This comes from the guy who’s read every book, so don’t QUESTION ME!

    My god this is sickening!! Aslan infected with flood…desperately trying to hold onto his last shred of sanity…

    Goodbye Narnia…

    This is essentially the Flood Vs. Jesus Christ. Who would win is dependent on your theological perspective.

    Aslan wouuld come and svae the day!

    “This is essentially the Flood Vs. Jesus Christ. Who would win is dependent on your theological perspective.”

    Theological perspective or not, Aslan did some badass things in the books. The flood aren’t getting past him.

    Let’s consider that there is no “everyone changes back to themselfs” plothole that plauges thousands of movies. Now the flood would come, and take over an isolated area of nirna. After amassing a larger force, they would take over more isolated areas, and by the time word got out, it would be to late. Also, the flood would learn how to use the bow and arrows, and the sowerds, just like they learned how to use guns and energy sowerds in halo. And finnaly, if an accient civilation who excled all know thecnolgeys, even to the elites, had to come to such an low as to build 7 rings that would wipe out all life for millones of lightmiles, and STILL lost, what chance do this misfits have?

  11. Cpt Olimar March 18, 2009 at 11:49 pm -      #11

    “This is essentially the Flood Vs. Jesus Christ. Who would win is dependent on your theological perspective.”

    L-W has this figured. Since Narnia is, to my knowledge, highly symbolic of the bible with Aslan representing God…….

    If you just say that Aslan is a Lion with certain magical powers, then yes the Flood could win I guess, but if you even consider his power to be a fraction of what the Christian God’s power is, then he could literally “uncreate” every single flood if he wanted to. It’s completely dependent on perspective and as such, pretty much outside of a logical debate.

    If Aslan truly represents God, he could single handedly kill the Flood, along with the entire Halo universe.

    If Aslan has no direct correlation with God, then the Flood have a good chance to succeed.

  12. Thepocalypse March 19, 2009 at 9:14 am -      #12

    Aslan, while an almost omnipotent being, would probably be assimilated eventually as he seems to have little ability to affect events after they are set in motion.
    Remember, the Forerunners were practically gods themselves, and they lost the war with the flood, so I see little hope for even the demigods of the Narnian universe.

  13. L-W March 19, 2009 at 9:37 am -      #13

    Gods? No, not really, just extremely evolved Humanoids who flourished and wilted before reaching the status of Precursors.

  14. Matapiojo March 19, 2009 at 10:22 am -      #14

    The Forerunners are the basic sci-fi archetype of a highly evolved race of sentient beings.

    Since we know very little of the Forerunners, there are numerous other beings that could be used for basic comparison from other universes. The most obvious of such (due to them almost being a carbon-copy of one another) would be the Ancients from the Stargate universe.

    Now, bear in mind that this is still very unrealistic, it is just a suggestion to have a basic point of comparison. A being the represents and actual omnipotent god would still be far superior to an entire Forerunner/Ancient race.

    Having a higher understanding for the workings of the universe pales in comparisson to having the ability to just think said universe into existence or un-existence.

  15. Thepocalypse March 19, 2009 at 10:23 am -      #15

    “Gods? No, not really, just extremely evolved Humanoids who flourished and wilted before reaching the status of Precursors.”
    Hence “practically”
    My point being that their technology and possible mystical abilities are somewhere near those of the forces of Narnia (It’s difficult to compare fantasy and sci-fi) and they were still overcome by the Flood. So, I assume, regardless of the greater or lesser level of difficulty, the same would happen to Narnia.

    Might i add the one huge reason as to why they lost was because of betrayl?

  17. Thepocalypse March 19, 2009 at 10:55 am -      #17

    “Might i add the one huge reason as to why they lost was because of betrayl?”
    They would have lost without the treachery of Mendicant Bias. They actually constructed the Halo Array knowing they were going to fail to destroy the Flood through conventional means. That’s why they prepared the Ark.
    The (possibly rampant) AI just sped things up.

  18. fooby March 19, 2009 at 11:05 am -      #18

    how is narina biblical? piz explane
    asland flood ftw

  19. marche March 19, 2009 at 11:10 am -      #19

    they didnt build the rings knowing they were going to fail,they built it INCASE they were going to fail.with the Maginot Sphere they had flood at a stalemate,so it was more of a back-up plan.

  20. hotshot March 19, 2009 at 11:18 am -      #20

    Gravemind would eat them up

  21. Cpt Olimar March 19, 2009 at 11:21 am -      #21

    narnia mirrors the bible in certain ways, the biggest being (if you watched the 1st movie that came out or red the books) that Aslan sacrifices himself for someone else’s sin (that one human’s) which mirror’s Jesus’ death.

    So like I said before, if Aslan really mirrors God/Jesus then the Flood might as well commit suicide to save time.

  22. Thepocalypse March 19, 2009 at 11:28 am -      #22

    “how is narina biblical? piz explane”
    Aslan, who had a part in the creation of the world, sacrifices his life and is resurrected in the same manner as Jesus Christ.

  23. Thepocalypse March 19, 2009 at 11:37 am -      #23

    “they didnt build the rings knowing they were going to fail,they built it INCASE they were going to fail.with the Maginot Sphere they had flood at a stalemate,so it was more of a back-up plan.”
    Preparation for failure often means it is likely in a non-paranoid society. The Forerunners had begun detonating stars and bombarding their own planets in a grim acceptance of defeat. Didact was really the only reason they didn’t fire the Halo array sooner. The tactics of the Forerunner military failed long before Mendicant Bias was induced into rampancy by Gravemind. The flood had almost breached the Maginot Sphere when the AI took his fleet and smashed it open for them, so as is quite clear, he was merely a small advantage in the end.
    The Flood had already assimilated thousands of super luminaries, so it wasn’t like this was their only way to access Forerunner weaponry.

  24. L-W March 19, 2009 at 10:30 pm -      #24

    The Narnia series reflects the Old and New Testament in many ways:

    “The Last Battle” (The entire book) is paradigm to the Battle of Armageddon in the New Testament book of Revelation.

    In “The Magician’s Nephew”, Aslan speaks (Sings) Narnia into existence creating the land, all who inhabit it and existence itself. Mirroring Genesis I in which God says “Let there be light”. Proving that Aslan is Omnipotent in regards to the creation and destruction of Narnia.

    In “The Magician’s Nephew”, Digory (Much like Adam in Genesis)allows evil to enter the perfect world, reflecting the entry of Stan and his corruption into the world of Eden.

    In “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”, not only does Aslan give himself for Edmund as Jesus gave himself for man and died in his place, but there is a deeper magic that the Witch knows nothing of. In Narnia that magic resurrects Aslan, in the Bible it talks about how Satan not knowing what would really happen when the Messiah came. If the white Witch/Satan had known, they would never have killed Aslan/Jesus. In Jesus’ case, it’s his death, burial and resurrection and thus, his complete victory over the Devil. With Aslan it’s the same, when he’s resurrected because of the deeper magic, he rises stronger than ever and completely destroys the White Witch alongside his disciples.

    I believe it’s in “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” where you see Aslan, the Lion, as a lamb. In the Bible, the Messiah is referred to as the Lion of the tribe of Judah AND the Lamb of God Who takes away the sins of the world.

    – – –

    There are many more allusions, but for now this is all I can recall on the subject matter (I haven’t read the Narnia tales since Primary school). Either way we can ascertain that despite the archaic technology available to the denizens of Narnia, Aslan has the ability to merely call or defend Narnia itself with nothing more than his Omnipotence, since his existence is a paradigm of the Holy Trinity.

    So, what if the Flood attempts to invade Narnia? Nothing. Aslan could remove them from existence, or even recreate Narnia from nothing.

  25. Spacemarine at Rosedale March 20, 2009 at 2:54 am -      #25

    Flood aslain is not FTW, That would make him be a worse fighter is all..

    Oh and if you own in Far cry 2 you win FPS forever.

  26. Thepocalypse March 20, 2009 at 5:22 am -      #26

    I’m really not sure he would L-W. By that logic, he would have eliminated other threats to Narnia, like the Witch, the false prophets from The Last Battle, etc.
    I think Aslan may be more of a non-interfering deity as he offers advice to the characters, but rarely uses his power to influence events. Perhaps, like many believe our “God” is, he created Narnia with rules and is now involuntarily bound by those rules, time for example. He does seem to exist in the present as perceived by the other characters, so I suppose he might not be omnipotent, as omniscience is a facet of omnipotence.

  27. L-W March 20, 2009 at 9:29 am -      #27

    Are you sure you’ve read any of the Books in the Narnia series?

    The final battle, the fall of the Silver Chair, his renewal and rebirth of Narnia, the siege of Archenland, the end of the world and the final voyage of the Dawn Treader. Just a few examples of Aslan demonstrating that along with his disciples, he can prove to be an assertive force in both a conventional and spiritual manner. According to the author (C.S. Lewis), Aslan is not an allegorical portrayal of Christ, but rather a different, hypothetical, incarnation of Christ himself. If Aslan represented the immaterial Deity, he would be an allegorical figure. In reality however, he is an invention giving an imaginary answer to the question, ‘What might Christ become like if there really were a world like Narnia and He chose to be incarnate and die and rise again in that world as He actually has done in ours?’ This is not allegory at all.

    Either way, we’ve seen Aslan do more than present the mythical guiding hand of fate and platitude; in fact during the penultimate chapters of “The Final Battle”, Aslan seals the doors between the corrupted Narnia (Which is ironically enough being devoured by Parasitic organisms) and the ideal Narnia. Essentially restoring all that was displaced in the eons of conflict and beginning anew.

    Aslan is Narnia’s healer, if it should ever suffer undue grievance that cannot be overcome by faith and conventional force alone, he’ll simply banish the infection, cauterize the wound and remove any trace of the ailment.

  28. Thepocalypse March 20, 2009 at 10:10 am -      #28

    I’ve read all of them L-W. But it was like 7 years ago.

  29. Thepocalypse March 20, 2009 at 10:27 am -      #29

    Continuing the last comment, Aslan does repair things and affect the material world, but he doesn’t just pop out of nowhere and go “Bam! Bad guys dead!”. He acts in more mysterious ways.

  30. EnigmaJ March 20, 2009 at 3:56 pm -      #30

    “Continuing the last comment, Aslan does repair things and affect the material world, but he doesn’t just pop out of nowhere and go “Bam! Bad guys dead!”. He acts in more mysterious ways.”

    Hence my first post. It’s not going to be Bam!, but Aslan is not just going to let Narnia, the world he created go to waste by some outside force. It just won’t happen

    After reading the books, I’m convinced that Aslan cares for creation and life.

  31. L-W March 20, 2009 at 11:24 pm -      #31

    Agreed Enigma, although his influence may not be suddenly present at the opening incarnation of the Flood pandemic, he does care enough about Narnia itself to bring a sudden close to such an outbreak of extreme hostility.

  32. fooby March 21, 2009 at 10:49 am -      #32

    lets leave biblical idea out of the question and then see who wins?

  33. AlphaCommando March 21, 2009 at 1:45 pm -      #33

    They are inseparable, Aslan is a allegory of the Jewish-Christian version of god, IE he has all the “powers” of God. Thus this is not even a competition, Aslan could just wish it all changed.

    Extracting the religion from Narnia is like trying to pull the vacuum from outer space…

  34. Thepocalypse March 21, 2009 at 2:12 pm -      #34

    “lets leave biblical idea out of the question and then see who wins?”
    It’s important to the scenario, so discussion here should be alright.

  35. Thepocalypse March 21, 2009 at 2:57 pm -      #35

    “They are inseparable, Aslan is a allegory of the Jewish-Christian version of god, IE he has all the “powers” of God. Thus this is not even a competition, Aslan could just wish it all changed.”
    See that’s what we’re talking about now. It isn’t “could he?” but “would he?” and I think we’ve reached the conclusion that Aslan would eventually annihilate the Flood.

  36. AlphaCommando March 21, 2009 at 4:52 pm -      #36

    Note I used the word “could.”

    Its entirely dependent if Aslan truly cares about the denizens of his realm (which I believe he does), considering he seems to take very careful interest in what goes on in Narnia. Now it’s all personal opinion but I believe if it got truly bad Aslan would just step in and cure the infection, course that’s just my opinion based on how beneficent he seems to be….

  37. EnigmaJ March 21, 2009 at 9:08 pm -      #37

    Lol and besides… what else does he have on his agenda xD

  38. L-W March 22, 2009 at 1:24 am -      #38

    “Should I negate this highly infectious, extremely volatile and ultimately unstable parasite from consuming the World that I created and came to love as my own…Or should I have a nap?”

    “DAMN IT ASLAN! WHERE ARE YOU!?”

    “Fine, but I’m only doing this once.”

    *The Flood infection vanishes, all that was lost returns to normal*

    “There, what’s next on my to do list?”

    “You can try defrosting the Great Northern frozen expanses so we can live there again.”

    “What?! And be known as the Lion who caused global warming? Forget it!”

  39. Onesidedfight March 22, 2009 at 8:47 am -      #39

    Yeah, nvm mind, flood gets stomped, mabye by a real flood that the lion makes.

  40. Jack Yoder April 15, 2009 at 8:20 pm -      #40

    the flood would win who cares if aslan can resurect he wouldn’t be dead he would be assimilated into the flood whom would either starve to death after wiping out all of narnia of get the kids as they come thru the closet and spread to the human world.

  41. hitman8 July 3, 2009 at 3:35 pm -      #41

    “This is essentially the Flood Vs. Jesus Christ. Who would win is dependent on your theological perspective.”

    then again the flood is symbolic for the flood that god sent out into the would to destroy all. i mean look closly at halo. the FLOOD come and the forerunners build THE ARK. sound familiar. oh and if you read the terminals in halo 3 it talks about adam and eve. so if your saying that narnia would win because it has to do with the bible and it’s jesus nalagori lion then your wrong. It was gods will for the flood to destroy all life except those in the ARK.

  42. The_man_with The_Answers August 4, 2009 at 2:52 pm -      #42

    WHOA! That is kinda weird only because the covenant gave them those holy names. It’s all the covies naming system. it goes along with the forrunners being gods and all. Unfortunalty the Ark didn’t defend them from the Flood……

  43. ninja_wid_nunchux August 19, 2009 at 3:46 am -      #43

    Jesus vs. the Flood, Jesus wins. C’mon, Aslan is based on Jesus Christ. If you kill him, he comes back to life and gets you back. And if his people gets infected by the flood, Aslan( Jesus ) can just bring them back and kill all of the flood… and he can do this all day long (& by all day I mean forever…..)

  44. Pondering Fool September 26, 2009 at 11:18 pm -      #44

    I think L-W pretty much offered all the proof of Aslan being omnipotent, omniscience, and omnipresent (basically the Judeo-Christian God). Like many have said before me, depends on when and how Aslan wants to get rid of the flood and not “could he do it”, because he most surely could.

    I say the flood will be unsuccessful and I nominate Narnia for the fact pile award

    hmmmm
    i gues that they came in a covadent ship
    bring weapons and covadent combat forms…..
    narnia would be destoryed
    but if this was a cheesy movie
    alsan would come and save the day somehow
    unless hes infected
    heck they would be in even more s*** if it was the tyrnids

  49. kawika850 December 10, 2010 at 2:32 pm -      #49

    CS Lewis was a Christian. He wrote the Narnia book series so kids can learn the Christian faith without their even knowing about it.
    Aslan = God in lion form. (the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscience)
    While he can just roar and do anything he wanted, he believes in the free will of others. free will enables one to make a decision and act upon it. the consequences will follow.
    I understand the flood to be a genetic invader of all biological things. it takes over the biological aspect and then multiplies so forth.
    Aslan = God. He created biological matter. Would not the creator be able to affect his own creation.
    As for Aslan not having the power to enter the fray, that is incorrect. he can but refuses to do so. He will intervene when most needed and not until then.
    He would rather have the Narnians call upon him (at their hour of need) and then he will help. this re-enforces the concept that only through him can the Narnians survive this flood.
    Once the Narnians called for his help (with actual need in their protestations), he would intervene.
    the Books of the Judges (OT) prove this.
    Isreal turns away from God
    Isreal gets conquered
    God raises Judge (military Commander)
    Judge fights Isreal enemy
    Judge defeats Isreal enemy
    Isreal has period of peace
    Judge become corrupted
    Isreal falls again and is conquered again

    the above happens twelve (12) time in the book of Judges. God comes to Isreal’s aid only after they have chosen to disobey him and they protest their current position. God then raises a leader to lead them out of the mess.

  50. Michael50210 December 10, 2010 at 3:03 pm -      #50

    WHAT?1
    Are we bringing the gravemind into this? Cause if we are, Aslan might have a bitty problem with a super-old plant-looking monster-thing with knowledge from thousands of assimilated soldiers of all ranks.And even if we’re not, I’m assuming the flood are going to crash land carrying whatever weapons they picked up from the ship they jumped out of, which is most likely covenant tech, with some human stuff mixed in. And will Aslan be able to stop them in time? Because the Flood spread VERY quickly, which is explains the shpimaster’s comment in halo 3 “If not for the arbiter’s counsel, i would have destroyed your entire world”, highlighting that he realized that the flood could have overrun earth in a matter of hours. days, or weeks. Highlited even further in Halo: The Flood, when that british AI told Silva “If one flood spore manages to escape on Earth, the entire planet would fall.
    I dunno, I’m just making sure everythings covered. Even if Aslan manages to save the world (Narnia isnt the only place there, remember:)), the residents are going to experience a raping that will be spoken about (in hushed voices and history classes) for the next two thousand years

  52. Lowk December 10, 2010 at 3:53 pm -      #52

    The Almighty Allegory Lion will be most displeased. Doesn’t Narnia have various mystical or elemental entities? The flood can’t really take over those.

  53. Michael50210 December 10, 2010 at 5:12 pm -      #53

    You knw Lowk, you kinda have a point. I don’t recall tree-flood forms anywhere. Or rock-flood forms. But whatever they dont infect, they’ll just destroy with whatever the hell they have on hand, which, as I said, will probably be mostly future tech AT FIRST.
    I say that, because that same tech has to eventually run out of ammo. I’n not sure though, cause it seems like the flood have an infinite ammo mod.
    Besides, if I were Aslan, I’d take one look at what was happening, I’d go “Yeah, you guys are f*cked, I’ll just wait till this blows over”
    LOL

  54. theboysareback February 24, 2014 at 11:04 pm -      #54

    I don’t think Aslan would have the attitude of “Yeah you guys are screwed, I’ll wait till this blows over.” Aslan always comes when Narnia desperately needs help. I agree that it would be whispered about for the next who knows how long… 1300 yrs. after the white witch they were still murmuring about her power.

  55. OberHerb February 24, 2014 at 11:24 pm -      #55

    If Aslan intervenes, Flood is screwed. If not, Narnia is.
