    Why not have Rin use a Command Seal to summon Archer?

      Then also have Sakura use summoning jutsu to summon her giant slug, (who's name escapes me at the moment). Would have made for a pretty intense battle. Though I will say that given the general levels of over the top badassness that happens later on in Naruto, I still think it would be a no contest fight since nothing Rin and Archer could do would top the kind of sheer broken overpowered attacks that Sakura is used to seeing. She may be the weakest of the main three, but even still that's like saying that Majin Buu, (good fat Buu), is weak compared to Goku and Vegeta. I love the Fate series, but still no contest in my opinion....

    None of the attacks felt like they had any impact. I can't tell if this was a lack of animation quality or a lack of audio to make it sound like a more genuine fight. But overall, a very flacid fight to say the least.

    Eh wasn't very good honestly. Not a very interesting matchup (Sakura vs. someone from Fairy Tail would be a better fit) and the sound effects and music just weren't used very well really felt like it had no impact then it ended and I was like... "Thats it?" I thought the animation itself was fine if not a bit flat but overall yeah it could've been better.

    I see why this was not a death battle. I prefer Rin as a character, aesthetically, and her series but Sakura can punch through mountains. It's cool, though, to see them fighting and really does hit home that Tohsaka magic is essentially 'throw money at the problem until it goes away.'

      I am not really going to blame him, because if he had put her on the top, he would have just been criticized for catering to feminist ideals over story. He wouldn't be able to win for losing. In fact, if you exclude people with powers from Kaguya, Sakura may actually be the strongest character on the show. It really is a matter of perspective.


      EDIT: I take that back. Gai may be the strongest character on the show period. Especially when you exclude people that had powers originating from Kaguya

    Personally, I was pretty sure that Sakura was likely to win given battle experience, but other than use of her jewels, Rin seemed kind of... weak in this battle.

      Rin also had her body enhancements, but she is pretty much a normal human. As strong as she could make herself, she wasn't close to Sakura's level, more so after she released the seal.

    Was anyone else bored by the battle? I mean, the music seemed all too mellow for an action scene, and the impacts hardly even sounded like impacts. Seriously, I know I'm nitpicking purely because I have no connection to either character, and probably sounding whiny, but I felt the sound design was... off.

    Well wasn't expecting that outcome but to be fair I actually never watched Naruto or Fate/Stay Night so I had limited knowledge about these two. But I'm surprised that you guys got Wendee Lee to voice Rin considering that I know her from Hyperdimension Neptunia as Blanc aka White Heart.

  • atackything

    Rin never left craters or disintergrated things with her angry love taps like Sakura all the time does. Sakura going all out should've ended her with one of the first body blows from her super strength...... BUT Should Rin have been able to use Archer then Game Over. Rin wins. I was actually hoping for him to make an apperance. Oh well still awesome. Do think Rin without archer would've lost more quickly.

    • Gamer3427 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold taC terceS

      1 year ago

      I disagree on the idea that having Archer would have made Rin instantly win. Archer is powerful, true, but he'd be about the level of a named strong enemy in the Naruto universe at most, and while Sakura is the weakest and least developed of the main three, she's still one of the strongest characters in the Naruto universe. A universe where enemies constantly summon kaiju, have instant death attacks, and destroy mountains with their warm up strikes, not to mention what some of the later villains can do, such as calling down a meteor, then calling down a second larger meteor when the first didn't work. It's the same issue with power scaling not being equal in both universes that we've seen in most of the one sided death battles. Some of the more powerful attacks we see in the Fate series are things that trainee ninja can use a variant of in the Naruto series.....

    I have never watched Naruto but, given what everyone has been writing about Sakura, I did not expect Rin to lose. Rin is incredibly powerful. She took on two near godlike beings by herself. Once, she needed a lot of preparation but the other time she just had her base skills. Not to mention her willingness to withstand incredible pain and suffering to save an asshole (I really wish he had died a third time).


    Oh well, good video.

      Sakura is pretty strong but in the anime and manga a lot of times she doesn't do anything when there is a fight happening.

    • Rook13 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      That was Sakura at the end of the series, when she is at her most powerful. Rin was doing well until Sakura released the seal, which essentially boosted her power 100 fold. to be honest.

    • farson135 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      @Rook13 If that is the case then the fight doesn't seem particularly fair. The fight showed Rin at her base strength but she was at her most powerful when she built the Jewel Sword. Not to mention the fact that she did not have her servant (either Archer or Saber). It seems odd to allow one character to be fully leveled but leave the other one in their starting position.


      I am not really going to complain. It just seems odd.

    The animation was good, though I wish Rin was more expressive, but I suppose that was just a problem with wherever they got the model from (assuming they got the model from a game, not too knowledgable on the whole process). Also, the choice of music and the sound effects could have been better at certain points. Overall, though, I still enjoyed it. It was nice to see a 3D-animated fight with a Naruto character.

      I agree. It looked really pretty but all of the sound effects sounded almost muffled and it really took the power out of the fight. Even the parts that had them punching and destroying parts of the set sounded dull and not very exciting. That combined with the fact that the music did not pick up much during what was supposed to be the climatic moment also made it feel less impactful. Not every video can be fantastic though, and this series is still new so i'm sure they are working out some kinks still.

    The animation is certainly several steps up from the last fight. Although... Where was the bloodshed? We didn't even see Rin die, she just got sent to orbit typical anime style. She could have very well still lived from that. But ah well. Good fight.

    While both can heal themselves and what not, I see Sakura winning. While Rin can use magic, she uses crystals and gem stones to use them( Though she does have an attack that is basically just uses her own magical power) so she has a limit on how many spells she can use. While sakura is " Shows footage of building collapsing" but still I'm rooting for Rin.

      Rin has been shown to have spectacular hand-to-hand combat skills. There's one scene in UBW where she and Luvia were sparring that shows how much damage their magic reinforced physical blows can do; having said that, Sakura still has the advantage in a melee. Bring in Servants though..

      Sadly. Which sucks because she has plenty of awesome moments but for most of the series, Kishimoto writes her as a typical Shonen female. Simply because he cannot write female characters for shit and has to overglorify the two leads.

      The thing is, you having the bare minimum knowledge of Naruto still means you know more that a sadly sizable chunk of Naruto's fanbase. Sakura is an awesome character. Then Studio Pierrot decided they liked Hinata so they had to make a bunch of shitty filler that made Sakura look bad. Then a bunch of stupid americans watched it and decided to write shitty fanfiction that made her even worse. Then a different bunch of idiots somehow got it in their heads that fanfiction = canon.

      Well you're forgetting. Gaara may be a male Naruto character, but he's still a Naruto character. So there's no follow through in anything he does. Either Toph beats the shit out of him and kills him and wins. Or Gaara beats the shit out of her, then at the last second starts rambling about some convoluted ooc bullshit about never actually wanting to fight her. Then she kills him while he's busy having his character derailed. Either way, Naruto characters can't win death battle.

    I don't know a single thing about Fate/stay night but I know Sakura is going to lose. Because she's a woman from Naruto and therefore incapable of accomplishing anything. Well that's not entirely true. She can stay in the kitchen, pop out babies, and gush about how romantic it is being physically, emotionally, and psychologically tortured. But yeah. Sakura's going to lose. Unless Studio Pierrot wants to pay to rerail her character. But that would ruin all their shitty fanfiction, so I doubt it.

      Dude, you have comments talking about how they wrote Sakura's character poorly and did a worse and worse job of writing it as time went on, but you are completely ignoring the skills she's shown and that while she may be poorly written compared to other characters, she's still one of the strongest characters in a universe where most of the attacks can terraform a small country, and that's while she's just using her fists. Just because she's a shitty character thanks to poor writing doesn't mean she's weak, and DB and particularly DBX isn't about character quality as much as it is raw power and rule of cool.....
