    Kinda lame the Lucario didn't mega evolve, but other than that, this fight was bad ass

    You should do Link from The Legend of Zelda VS Spawn as a DBX Episode, due to the fact those two have been featured as guest characters in Soulcalibur II but the two never fought against one-another. So just imagine people seeing that one.

    God damn the animation is too smooth.

    Should have settled it in Smash.


    Love the use of Zinnia's battle theme though.

    Tails vs Diddy Kong for DBX

      Or maybe even Cream the Rabbit vs Dixie Kong

      I think it would better if it was a battle royal with Zelda, Peach, Amy, and Dixie. The love interest of each main character.

      Smash isn't canon at all.

      Well, unless it's Kid Icarus anyway.

    Really would have liked to see Lucario mega evolve here, though even with Mega Lucario's heightened stats, and a more varied move set, I would still ultimately give the fight to Ryu simply because steel type pokemon, (which Lucario is a steel/fighting type), are weak against fighting type attacks. And I'm not even a street fighter fan in the least, (really dislike most "standard" fighting games), and am a big pokemon fan.....

    What a twist


    Tho really, it was kinda obvious who'd win when Ryu was 7 levels higher than Lucario

    Now I just want a pokemon game where you have the option to beat the shit out of the pokemon you're trying to catch by yourself.

      I know it's no research, but several of your fights seem like colossal stomps. DK would wreck Ralph, the Ogrelord would get Shrekt by Wario, and Lobo is immensely stronger than Deadpool, to name a few.

    Yo this is the best DBX I've ever seen, hands down. I REALLY enjoy the hell out these over those 3D DBX fights. The animator did one hell of a good job.

    Animator here to clarify a few things:
    The Lucario on the phone is just a virtual version in Pokémon Go. The decapitated Lucario corpse and the explosion that was far away behind Ryu signified the real body was there. Sorry if it wasn't clear enough!

    Hope y'all enjoyed it.

      Dude, your animation was FANTASTIC! Super enjoyed it man!

    • Yoshirocks92

      1 year ago

      I guess that explains on how Ryu was somehow behind that explosion at the end of the fight but all and all, awesome job dude and I can't to see more from you in the future.

  • Shrooboid313 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    Just from the fact that Lucario can Mega-Evolve and learn moves like Poison Jab, Double Team and Psychic I would 100% have thought that Lucario would have won. But then again I'm only a super casual Street Fighter fan so I don't know Ryu's backstory at all. Still awesome though and the animator(s?) did an amazing job!!!

    • ConfusedKoala7

      1 year ago

      Nah. Ryu wouldn't lose to a Pokemon like Lucario. He's got much better feats and Lucario can Mega Evolve but Ryu's got the Dark Hado.

    where was mega lacario? He went into the crystals and thought he was going to mega evolve. Come on!

  • Kyouma95

    Slightly odd idea for a match up but I'm not complaining because that was the best Sprite animation of the season! You can really feel the energy of the battle! Plus that ending made me laugh: But wouldn't Ryu be only catching a corpse after what he did to Lucario?


    By the way, I think it would be cool to see Rayman characters in DBX (or Death Battle respectively). Here are some ideas for Rayman battles (hope you don't mind :)):

    Rayman vs Mario

    Rayman vs Earthworm Jim

    Globox(Rayman) vs Luigi

    Teensie (Rayman) vs Toad (Mario)

    Barbara (Rayman Legends) vs Princess Peach.

    • KingJotun FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      I could roll with Rayman vs Earthworm Jim, battle of the forgotten mascot characters.

    • Kyouma95

      1 year ago

      I wouldn't say Rayman is "forgotten", he has several recent games that seem to be getting popular like Rayman Legends. Glad you like my idea though :).

    SHAKUNETS! THE AURA! That was a majority of the dialogue. Not gonna complain though, this battle was good, the Pokémon Go reference at the end was a good joke. Keep it up, we need more like this.

    The Pokemon go mechanics will never be this good. lazy Niantic.

  • KingJotun FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    That was fine. Probably the best DBX yet, though I have to call shenanigans on the ending. You can't catch a fainted (or dead) Pokemon. :P


    In all seriousness, though, again, good work. The action was fun to watch, the sound effects were well-used (If seemingly low-quality) and the camera worked with the choreography as opposed to against it. I hope to see more work from this animator.


    Quote vs Shovel Knight, indie sidescroller DBX.

    That was by far the best DBX so far. Great animation and correct results. That ending tho. 9/10. (Loses points because I would've liked a more interesting way for the fight to start, but it's just a nitpick) Also just gonna say I'd love to see the animator do full DB episodes. Th-That's it.

      This one and Trunks vs Silver are the best so far. But all them are good.

    Oddly enough, a lot of these DBX's actually have very accurate outcomes. Didn't see this match-up coming, either. Was a little confused with what was going on, but good animation overall.

      These fights aren't meant to be accurate, just entertaining to watch. All of the in-depth research is in the actual Death Battle series.
