It is the final Friday in October and Halloween is just around the corner, which means it’s time to announce the winner of our 99designs Halloween Battle (check out Round 1, Round 2 and Round 3 to get up to speed)!

Giving a huge thank you to everyone who voted and debated and participated in this contest.

And the final winner, in an epic battle of Aliens vs. Ninjas is … Aliens! All hail our extraterrestrial overlords!

How the aliens dominated

Halloween Battle

Facing off in a post-apocalyptic world, gone through zombie and dinosaur infestation, meteorite hits, and littered with the corpses of robots, monsters, and skeleton bones, the alien and ninja were all but spent – down to their last reserves of energy and desperate to win the final battle for Earth.

The alien’s technology was demolished: laser guns over-used in the battle against zombies , and melted-robot based weapons nowhere near ready. The Ninja’s weapons were lost as well, buried in the mountainous corpses of monsters and dinosaurs.

Having nothing but their own hands or tentacles, the alien and ninja engaged in hand-to-hand combat. Punching, kicking, dodging, head-butting, gauging, scratching, both gradually weakening. But what the ninja realized too late in his desperate battle for life is that every cut he made into the alien’s slimy body released a little bit of the alien’s noxious blood. Finally overpowered by the toxic poison which he himself released from the alien, the ninja fell – leaving the screaming slimy beast the master of the Earth.
