This Battle Couple Meme originally belongs to JasonPictures and is dedicated to all the wonderful Raymond x Alex or Raylex shippers, partisans, and loyalists of the world. Sit back, relax, and revel in the sheer beauty of Raymond’s muscularly Herculean virility combined with Alex’s lithely slender femininity which makes them a formidable power couple never to be underestimated. Furthermore, they may as well be Beverly Hills’ most alluring couple, according to various fitness magazines, thanks to the combination of Raymond’s handsomely muscular physique and Alex’s flexibly agile figure.
Out of all the Totally Spies couples that I have adored ever since watching this show in my pre-adolescent years in the early 2000s, I always loved Raymond x Alex or Raylex the most. Raymond was also my number one favorite of the weekly Totally Spies love interests, thanks to his affable charm, handsome countenance, and his beautifully bulging muscles. Despite being a one-off character, Raymond left an impression on me when I was a 12 to 13-year-old middle-schooler between 2004 and 2005 slowly coming to terms with my sexuality while still under the thinly-veiled guise of liking girls. I was also arguing to myself that Raymond was truly the best love interest for Alex because of how well they complement each other in terms of Raymond’s bulging muscles and virile affability meshing well with Alex’s lithe athleticism and flexible femininity. It was a shame that Alex had to sacrifice her lithe physique by devouring Ulrich Wernerstein’s Bulky Bars to save her friends and Raymond to the point where he dumped her for that stupid and shallow reason that she was bigger than him, but at least I have my AU headcanon to heal wounds.
Raymond and Alex define being a powerful battle couple by virtue of combining brute muscular strength and lithe athletic agility to create a slew of powerful attacks against their opponents. They are not only pleasing to the eyes in terms of their individual aesthetics but also have a lot to offer in terms of physical prowess and unwavering resilience to keep on bettering themselves. This power couple dynamic goes hand-in-hand with their respective occupations. Raymond’s duties as a gym instructor could assist people in getting physically strong and fit, while Alex’s duties as a WOOHP agent can aid people in self-defense and honing their martial arts skills against their enemies. In terms of physical prowess, Raymond’s bulging muscles could also make him a mighty wrestler and grappler who can perform submission holds, bearhugs, torture racks, and body slams, while Alex’s physical flexibility means that she can perform the high kicks and the accurate strikes predominant in Taekwondo, Shaolin Kung Fu, Shotokan Karate, and Hapkido. Therefore, no villain can ever stop them even if it means ramming them over.
Speaking of physical appeal, Raymond and Alex would also be the faces of various fitness magazines, thanks to Raymond’s handsomely bulging musculature and Alex’s lithely flexible athleticism. If Raymond is the face of Men’s Health and Alex is the face of Women’s Health, they would be together as the faces featured in Good Housekeeping, Sports Illustrated, and many other health, lifestyle, and sports magazines. It is clear to see that Raymond’s tenure as a bodybuilder and gym instructor maximizes his appeal to anybody who loves seeing muscular men, while Alex’s tenure as a martial artist, all-around athlete, and WOOHP agent makes her a beacon of physical flexibility and unparalleled resilience. When combining Raymond’s magnificent muscles and Alex’s lithe athleticism, they can create an attractively appealing image of getting physical, feeling confident, and looking great on every occasion. Therefore, Raymond being the handsomely striking bodybuilder that he is and Alex being the charming sports model that she is can spark interest and appeal to viewers when it comes to looking and feeling great.
In my AU headcanon and the powers that be in regards to me being a hardcore martial arts tournament aficionado, I have made Raymond and Alex end up as an official couple. If you have been following me for some time, you will realize that Ulrich Wernerstein and his bodybuilder goons were not defeated by Alex bulking herself up and devouring the Bulky Bars, but by seven powerful Yokai martial artists. All this took place in the Wernerstein Mansion atop the Austrian Alps on December 12, 2004. When 22-year-old Raymond and 33-year-old Robert Beefcake were cured of the Bulky Bars’ devastating effects, 17-year-olds Sam, Clover, and Alex took their seats to watch the tournament about to occur, 17-year-old Britney came for a visit, and 23-year-old Chet joined in to see what was about to occur, Ulrich Wernerstein and his bodybuilder goons were surprised to see that their opponents were 23-year-old Sesshoumaru, 22-year-old Shuran, 22-year-old Inuyasha, 21-year-old Hakkaku, 21-year-old Ginta, 19-year-old Ayame, and 18-year-old Shunran who specialized in various martial arts styles and were ready to obliterate them.
Raymond and Alex were particularly excited to see the carnage about to occur as were Robert, Chet, Sam, Clover, and Britney. Mixed martial artist Sesshoumaru delivered body-eviscerating ground and pounds, armbars, Kimuras, and sprawls and brawls. Pro wrestler Shuran unleashed soul-shattering piledrivers, bearhugs, torture racks, and Full Nelsons. Pankratiast Inuyasha threw nerve-crushing tracheal grip chokes, rear naked chokeholds, hammer fists, and neck cranks. Muay Boran practitioner Hakkaku launched bone-damaging upward headbutts, elbow slashes, knee bombs, and downward elbow strikes. Lethwei partisan Ginta released skeleton-destroying downward headbutts, upward elbow strikes, flying knees, and clinching knee strikes. Kyuk Too Ki fighter Ayame put her inside-smashing uppercuts, jabs, hooks, and cross punches to exceptional use. Shaolin Kung Fu combatant Shunran put her spirit-numbing leopard blows, finger strikes, nerve strikes, and knife-hand strikes to fabulous use. The seven Yokai warriors were victorious against Ulrich and his bodybuilder goons to the audience’s jubilation.
Out of the seven Yokai martial artists, Raymond and Alex congratulated Inuyasha and Ayame the most because of their fabulous teamwork and how they looked amazing in delivering those brutal moves against Ulrich and his goons. Raymond wanted to learn Pankration’s submission holds, grappling moves, and punches from Inuyasha, while Alex wanted to learn Kyuk Too Ki’s punches, kicks, elbow strikes, and knee strikes from Ayame, thus showing enthusiasm for what they had to offer as martial artists. Inuyasha and Ayame said yes as long as Raymond and Alex were willing to commit to the training and take in as many brutal blows as they can. Sure, Inuyasha and Ayame gave Raymond and Alex the taxing training session, intense workout, and the brutal beatdowns they promised them to the point of making their bodies raw from the physical ordeals, but they came out alive and well despite the bruises and bloodiness occurring. They also obtained a few pearls of wisdom from Inuyasha and Ayame in terms of perseverance in the face of peril, thus making them more physically capable of talents they never thought of having.
After witnessing that brutal martial arts tournament, with Ulrich and his goons being beaten up to a bloody pulp, and being trained by Inuyasha and Ayame, Raymond and Alex managed to remain in their loving relationship and continued to go steady as boyfriend and girlfriend. Raymond even became a physical trainer for WOOHP aside from working as an instructor at Beverly Hills Gym and continuing his tenure as a bodybuilder. Alex was overjoyed to have Raymond work part-time for WOOHP, and Raymond was just as impressed with Alex’s physical prowess in fighting against every villain WOOHP had to encounter. Their romantic relationship continued to flourish as did their professional life to the point where they were featured on the front page of various teen fitness magazines as well as summer editions of Men’s Health and Sports Illustrated. By the time Alex became 18 on February 19, she celebrated her birthday with Raymond by surprising him with an engagement. In return, Raymond always wanted to take his relationship with Alex one step further too, and proclaimed that he always loved her so much.
22 going on 23-year-old Raymond and 18-year-old Alex were officially engaged on the night of her birthday and were continuing to thrive in their personal and professional lives. Raymond was winning more bodybuilding competitions, growing his gym instructor services, and even partnering with Robert and Chet as a bodybuilding trio featured in Men’s Health magazine. Alex was about to graduate from Beverly Hills High and attend Malibu University focusing on sports nutrition, thus using her skills and expertise to help people be active and make healthier choices in their lives. Before the night Raymond was about to turn 23 on October 2, he accomplished the impossible. He got down on one knee, presented a ring to Alex, and asked her to marry him. Alex was overjoyed to hear those words coming out of Raymond’s mouth, replied with a hugely resounding yes, and showered him with kisses and hugs. 23-year-old Raymond and 18-year-old Alex were married on November 27, 2005, at Beverly Hills’ St. Agatha’s Church, and their lives as a newly wedded couple were about to get a whole lot more exciting and thrilling.
Raymond and Alex were balancing their lives as a married couple, fitness models, and fitness enthusiasts who were constantly rooting for each other while having many nights of unadulterated intimacy. Alex was also balancing her life as a Malibu University student while being Raymond’s lovingly dutiful wife and knew how to create culinary delights every weekend. Raymond was always keeping his magnificent muscles well-conditioned for his beautiful wife because he believed that a man should always show pride in his body and use it to protect his wife from all harm. One late January in 2006, 18 going on 19-year-old Alex found out that she was pregnant, with 23 going on 24-year-old Raymond overjoyed and excited of the news that they were going to be parents. It was even found out that Alex was pregnant with triplet sons. Then on October 20, 2006, Alex gave birth to three sons named Michael, Matthew, and Miles. Raymond and Alex were very happy to be first-time parents to three beautiful boys and made it their obligation to raise them to be the strong and charming young men they ought to be.
Raymond’s and Alex’s family also grew aside from having their first trio of sons. October 17, 2007, saw the birth of twin sons Kenneth and Kevin. November 20, 2008, saw the birth of their first daughter Danica. November 21, 2009, saw the birth of their second daughter and youngest child Francine. In total, Raymond and Alex have seven charismatically charming and superbly strong children who have inherited Raymond’s affability and Alex’s enthusiasm. Even Sports Illustrated presented Raymond, Alex, and their seven children as Beverly Hills’ most gorgeous family ever to the point of being on the front page. As Raymond and Alex watched their children grow, they have seen the potential that each of their children had. Michael, Matthew, and Miles gained a high interest in American football, weightlifting, and wrestling. Kenneth and Kevin were avid powerlifters, swimmers, and wrestlers. Danica was an aspiring water polo player and Taekwondo practitioner. Francine was a promising gymnast and cheerleader. There was no doubt that their seven children had great potential in reaching their future goals.
With Raymond about to approach 41 and Alex at 36, they continue to be the super strong, fabulously fit, and absolutely active couple that they are. Raymond still has the handsomely muscular and magnificently godlike physique that he has always been famous for, thus using his bodybuilding expertise to help aspiring bodybuilders reach their potential. Alex continues to show excellent physical prowess in everything she does as a veteran WOOHP agent and a fitness specialist. Their children have also grown exceedingly well as athletes. Approaching 17 this year are Michael, Matthew, and Miles who are on the wrestling and football teams with a desire to compete in Combat Sambo and have a go at bodybuilding when they turn 21. Coming to their 16th year in life are Kenneth and Kevin who specialize in rugby, collegiate wrestling, and judo with a strong will to have a go at Professional Wrestling and bodybuilding when they turn 21. Approaching 15 this year is Danica who is a keen water polo player and avid skier. Coming to her 14th year in life this year is Francine who is an exciting cheerleader, swimmer, and gymnast.
Raymond and Alex thoroughly define being a power couple founded on Raymond’s magnificent muscles, super strength, and admirable affability as well as Alex’s limbering litheness, fabulous flexibility, and astounding athleticism. Their enthusiasm for learning from one of the world’s fiercest martial artist couples in Inuyasha the bludgeoning Pankration champion and Ayame the ferocious Kyuk Too Ki prizefighter knows no bounds to the point where they have implemented everything that they have learned from them into their daily workout regimens and combat repertoire. The appeal that both Raymond and Alex have as a couple consisting of an affable muscleman and an enthusiastic athlete means that they are featured in every fitness and sports magazine as a gorgeous couple who inspire people to become fitter and more physically active. Even their holy matrimony demonstrates that they still have the physical strength and never-ending endurance to remain thoroughly formidable in body, mind, and soul. Their children have also grown well, for they have been raised by loving parents who want the best for them.
I hope you all enjoyed this, and I will see you in the next submission. Take care, stay safe, and keep on showing your love for Raymond x Alex or Raylex as a super strong and beautifully bodacious couple, everybody.
