On some days, I wonder what would happen if Filipino mythological creatures came into contact with Western creatures. For example:
1) Changelings vs Tiyanaks: Both take on the guise of babies yet where the former resorts to deception and trickery over time, the latter is more feral and savage.
2) Centaur vs Tikbalang: One is half-man, half-horse while the other is, uh, half-horse, half-man.
3) Gnomes vs Nuno sa Punso: Both are creatures of the earth and have beards. They certainly won't win their fight due to their size.
I can envision that if the Tikbalang wins, it'll sit on the Centaur's body, then take a smoke.
So I'm rooting for the Tikbalang. :D
plus, isn't the centaur traditionally wise and compassionate, though fierce when provoked? the tikbalang on the other hand is often cantankerous, sarcastic and badass. tikbalang wins on attitude alone :P
I've a terrible feeling that #3 would turn out into a midget wrestling match (so un-PC of me).
