Against the 42-pound cinder block. Against the black-belt karate champion. Against the rod of 4” diameter bamboo arcing toward the back of his head. Master Oto prevails.

Against fear. Against distraction. Against surprise. Against the normal human wants and needs of any other individual on the planet. Master Oto prevails.

Against 17 sequential ninjas who can’t help but blood-curdlingly scream to announce their impending lightning attack. Master Oto prevails.

Against hunger. Against deprivation. Against 96 hours of water torture, bloody beatings and makeshift electrical connections to R-rated body parts. Against incapacitation of one or more limbs via bone breaks. Master Oto prevails.

Against icepicks and chains and daggers and ropes and samurai swords and nunchucks and garrotte wires and scimitars and throwing stars and random pieces of 2x4. Master Oto prevails.

Against anomalies of plot and dialogue and casting and change of scene. Master Oto prevails.

Against more than a score of monosyllabic thugs in overly tight matching sharkskin suits and weird haircuts wielding semiautomatic weapons that never seem to find the target, but make a cool noise and spit out a whole bunch of shell casings. Master Oto prevails.

Against an incredibly loud and cacophonic soundtrack. Master Oto prevails.

Against his wife’s yammering, and her cooking, and her crockery. Master Oto prevails.

Against all, Master Oto prevails.
