2: Whats the gutsiest move anyway has pulled towardz Samara/Sadako in any of the movies, manga, shows, bookz, etc.

Thankz...

Re: The Ultimate Hunt....
Samara's power is spiritual. The only way to defeat her is to counter her with a stronger spiritual power. Also, this stronger power should be a benevolent power, not another malevolent one. From a christian perspective, God would be the answer. People of other religions would have different ideas on what would constitute a stronger benevolent power to defeat Samara. Certainly, you would want to be sure of your religious beliefs before you dared to face Samara and depend on your god(s).

1) I'd use my animal spirit to protect me since I am 1/4 native american.
2) Video game puts Sadako's brain in a jar and hides in basement.

Re: The Ultimate Hunt...
heh.
i dont know if there is anything that you could do...
if it were me i would pray hard and fast. i mean, it's just death. you go on to a better place, and all your pain ceases.
i think fighting with anything except supernatural power would be frivolous. Something else to think about is this... if someone were not scared of her and LAUGHED IN HER FACE, would her power be defeated... since she thrives on fear?
i don't think it would be humanely possible to not be scared, but still...

The things we do to relax.
Well, I'd like to know how to defeat Samara/Sadako simply because it would make ME feel better. It would make a horrible sequel, though.

Oh well.

I'd arm myself and dress like that Judge character from the X-Box game, Hunter: the Reckoning, wielding a crossbow and blowing her away...ah. That would be like Ben Gay for my brain.

Play the tape again as she comes out of the TV, reflect the image off a mirror forcing her to watch the tape...HAHA

Sadako's visit
I would respectfully greet her and offer her tea, since she would be a guest in my home. If she still wanted to kill me, I would ask for the privilege of a last dance. It would only be proper. :D

I'ld have the papparatsi in my home as the deadline approached. Nobody hates the press like a dead celebrity!

What am I saying... if Samara came out of my TV, I'ld offer her a hand out of it, a drink, and happily lead her over to the fool I had shown the tape to 7 days before...

Re: me?
Melly: Smart Girl! I was thinking of similar ways to fight back as well. As I see it Samara is an concsious electromagnetic field. ie a soul with the stuff it takes to do what she's done thus far. I was.. thinking a little more drastically, in the realm of a nuclear warhead, gotta remember that they cause an EMP and fry all electronics within a certain radius ;p

The way it should be done.
Well I actually had a few ideas....

A blessed Katana...a sword that has been prayed over and may have some latin text on it, prayers and stuff.

Or I'd kick the glass out of the TV. Maybe it would trap her in my realm.

Play the tape when she is coming out of the TV.....if u notice the tape endz with a lil bit of film right before she comes out of the well. So when she climbs out that must be "the end" of the tape. So if i was playing the begining, and she was at the end........it isnt possible!!! You cant watch the begin and ending at the same time!!!

Or I would try and scare her away....by reminding her of her past...maybe show her a picture of her mother, or better yet threaten her with a black plastic bag and tell her to go back to hell.

When she gains phsyical properties when she enters the real world shoot her!!!! Stab her!!! Kung FU her @$$!!!

....So can yall "experts" tell me if any of these would work?

Re: The way it should be done.
Oh yes I assure you most of those wouldn't work. Kung fu wouldn't work cause it would pass right though her. Blessed sword maybe but if there was a sword made of pure good like Samurai Jack's katana that would be better. The tv bit wouldn't work. The magnets suggested earlier by someone else would work.

Re: Re: The way it should be done.
Silver doesn't work on ghosts. Iron for fey and vampires. Silver for weres. Throwing a bible won't work but you can put it in the hands of a priest and perhaps said priest can put a circle of salt around your tv to trap the spirit.

Re: Re: The way it should be done.
A: UNPLUG TV as she comes out, possibly cutting her in half.
if that doesnt work.
B: rewind tape that is in player as she comes out, make it suck her back in....
c: have your TV on a platform on the wall, much like the gif in the fan art section

if all else fails,

D. CALL THE GHOSTBUSTERS!

Re: The way it should be done, and why it wouldn't work.
I kinda doubt that a magnetic tape eraser would do the trick. I mean, if Samara has enough power to physically manifest herself outside a TV (even as a translucent image), I don't think a tape eraser would have enough power to affect her much. Maybe it would make a little disturbance in her image. Even if it did work, it would probably only destroy her manifestation, and not her spirit. She would just come at you again in a different way.

As for Sadako, forget it. In Ring 2, someone tried to erase a part of a video of a person who had watched the video, and it wouldn't erase. Somehow, that tells me that trying to erase Sadako won't do anything at all.

Unplugging the TV wouldn't work. Samara/Sadako would power the TV herself (do you have any doubts she could do this?).

I imagine that if you broke the glass of the TV as she was coming out, she would vanish. However, just when you thought it would be safe to leave, she would be in your face. She can glitch-teleport, remember?

I imagine that if you bombed the TV or fired a rocket at it, she would be standing in the rubble when the smoke cleared.

Beware the ultimate power of Sadamarako!! :evil

Before you die... you GOTTA see The Ring!

Die!!
If you know she is coming-smash every bit of glass, empty every receptacle of water and drain the toilet. Leave no reflective surface in the house. When she comes thru, smash the tv, plug in your electromagnet and erase her ass.

Or, record her-that might trap her in a new tape.

Or, set the tv up outside in front of a well. out of one into another, die die die!!

Or, set the tv and vcr up in the A/V department of any American learning institution and let them set it up. She'll kill herself out of frustration. Damn blue screen!

Is this going to spawn a "Rachel the Samara Slayer" series? :)

Better yet, is Samara one of many? In other words, are there other "creatures" like her? They may not manifest themselves in televisions but may emerge from mirrors, from pools of water, or from other objects. I think Rachel will appear in the sequel as a Dr. Loomis of sorts--driven by the mission to find and STOP Samara. Expect a little battle in the next movie.

I would play the tape BACKWARDS (while listening for anti-satanic messages <ggg>) and while wearing one of those cool spaces suits (face mask sprayed matte black) that keep out all those nasty X-rays and other cosmic waves/particles.

Would this work...
I would try and mix holy water with "her" water...if my theory is right the water is like her medium soo maybe she would get stuck or somethin or maybe even be killed by it. Or....
I would write on the TV screen backwards with a marker , On the screen I would write a prayer of excorcism. I have no clue what it would do, but maybe she would see it on "her side" of thingz.
