    I knew he'd win this. He beat Wolverine, with one arm

    I like the 3D animation but in this Battle I like the twist you did at the end. Well done.

    I'm certainly enjoying this running theme of good quality animations from ScrewAttack. Pixel sprites are fine, but there is just no denying how much cooler this style ends up looking. Though I guess it depends on the characters...

    Sorry fangirls but sadly Genji's amazing ass could not save him.

    This fight between two cyborg warriors needs to be a DEATH BATTLE in the near future.

      I'd rather see Genji fight either Cyrax or Yoshimitsu. The idea of him fighting Raiden is a little to overplayed to me.

      Part of the idea behind DBX is for Screwattack to do ideas that wouldn't really work in a true Death Battle. In this case, the difference in combat ability between the two is so massive that there's no point in analyzing them; it's obvious at a glance.

    Well Raiden has scored three wins in three different shows just like Zoro has before.

    Good fluid body animations for the characters.


    Do wish there was some more sound clips for Genji or Raiden when they go for an attack or get hurt, like grunts, or whatever. I noticed Chief vs Jango suffered from this as well. Feels like two mutes are fighting.

    Overall a solid DBX.

    This is why you should've been pushing the payload.

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

    Not surprising at all. If Raiden can beat the literally indestructible Wolverine then Genjin should be like smashing a cockroach with your bare hands. Plus he's packing a sword that literally cuts through anything like a lightsabre, his insane strength, speed and durability and he can slow down time perception of time. Also is Mark Zhang the official DBX animator now.

      Actually, it can't cut through anything. Herr Doktor actually outright tells Raiden that it can't BECAUSE it's not a plasma blade.

      General speculation is that it's Paul vs Guile.

    Definitely the best DBX yet. While epic battles with a lot of big powers are nice, nothing ever beats a good old fashioned sword fight......

  • CaseyDunn

    I get the feeling Mali and his OMM crew are trying to spite you guys in some way, specifically using some of the same characters you do. I mean, today it's coincidental since you both published Raiden battles the same day... but other times have just seemed a little fishy...

    • PokeSEGA64

           I'm not trying to 'side' with either of them, but they're schedules don't really synch up (not intentionally anyway). If you were to say "ScrewAttack is ripping off HyperGuage because their version of Trunks VS Silver came first," that wouldn't be any better. HyperGuage has been pretty successful doing its own thing, and I don't thing there's much evidence to suggest that they really care about ScrewAttack anymore. Ditto with the other way around.

    Mark is a good animator, but just one bit of criticism if you're reading this. There needs to be more dust particle effects when the characters slide on the ground as they often do in these animations. Like when they both hit each other and slid back, there should have been a trail or dust cloud by their feet.

    DBX Suggestions:

    Sonic (Sonic the Hedgehog) vs Speed O' Sound Sonic (One Punch Man)


    Excalibur (Warframe) vs Hunter (Destiny)


    Afro Samurai vs Samurai Jack


    Scorpion (Mortal Kombat) vs Cinder (Killer Instinct)


    Sub-Zero (Mortal Kombat) vs Glacius (Killer Instinct)

    • Yoshirocks92

      I actually kinda prefer Sub-Zero VS Glacius as an actual Death Battle.

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

      Honestly, I could see better options for a choice from Warframe. Particularly as a matchup against a class from Destiny. I'd honestly think Ivara would be a better choice against the hunter, since they both has a bow as one of their super abilities, and are both more of a "stealth assassin" style than a frontline swordsman like Excalibur is. Of course, with both, equipment choice could change up things a good bit. Would honestly enjoy seeing any of the Warframe classes though, since they are all pretty varied and do have their own sort of personalities to them, as well as some pretty spectacular skills.....

    • Neosonic97

      For Sub-Zero I think I'd prefer Cirno from Touhou Project as a DBX, since as a Death Battle it'd be a spite match in favour of Gensokyo's STRONGEST Fairy.

    If the animator is Mark Zhang, you're in for a good fight. DBX has plenty of faults, but he's probably the best part exclusive to the show. Hell, the guy does good enough work to animate for Death Battle proper should Screwattack contract him to do so.


    And results as expected; even the basic level of research required to represent the characters properly in DBX points to Genji having zero chance against Raiden.


    Also humorous that Raiden fought Genji the same day he fought Genos in One Minute Melee. xD

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

    First Genos in One Minute Melee and now this. It's been a busy week for Raiden. 


    Next Time: Paul Phoenix eh? I wonder who he's fighting. (Probably Ken again. DBX has done match ups OMM has done before in the past and I can't think of anyone else Paul would work well against)


    Requests:


    Mr. Burns (The Simpsons) vs. Mom (Futurama)


    Bubsy vs. Awesome Possum


    Baloo (TaleSpin) vs. Launchpad McQuack (DuckTales)


    Pikachu (Pokemon) vs. Jibanyan (Yo-Kai Watch)


    Greed (Fullmetal Alchemist) vs. Colossus (X-Men) 


    Eren Jaeger (Attack on Titan) vs. Saki Amamiya (Sin & Punishment) 


    Nightmare (Soul Calibur) vs. Ganondorf (The Legend of Zelda) 


    Jon Stewart (Green Lantern) vs. Mace Windu (Star Wars) 


    Pinkie Pie (MLP:FiM) vs. JIgglypuff (Pokemon) 


    Fukua (Skullgirls) vs. Decapre (Street Fighter)

      Guys from the SA Forums are saying they confirmed he's fighting Guile somewhere. (PAX, if I remember correctly?)

    Daaaaaaamn, you got me with that twist at the end! Congrats to Raiden for being yet another three time winner. Funny how both characters (Zoro and Raiden) who have such a track record are swordsmen. Great animation, Mark Zhang! I know for a fact that keeping this fight interesting must have been a bit of a challenge, since these characters don't really have much else up their sleeves besides swords... And shurikens for Genji, but we know that wouldn't have done him much good.


    Also, Ana hitting Genji with the nanoboost instead of healing him is the most accurate thing I've ever seen from this show.

      "since these character don't really have much else up their sleeves besides swords" 

      What. Have you actually played Metal Gear Rising? Raiden has his polearm, magnetic Sai, heavy scissor blades, grenades, heat knives, various types of grenades, numerous different kinds of swords, and guns in MGS2.

           Perhaps he was referring to weapons that people actually care about.

      Sorry, what PokeSEGA said. Still, you're right about me not having played MGR, so my apologies.

    Yo, if Raiden had lost when he was so close to winning all 3 major VS shows (the only other to do that was Zoro) and against someone he would logically stomp, I would have been pissed. But now he has all 3, and this was really good as well. Could have preferred a bit more substance, and we didn't get any crazy dragon stuff from Genji,but still cool. 


    BTW if ScrewAttack forums are correct, Paul's fighting Guile.

    This may be just me, but I'm just wondering what it would be like if Raiden fused his skills with Genji?
