    Uh, if you're gonna do pixel-art animation, it's really not in your best interests to zoom in too close.  Otherwise, characters just look like a mess of differently-colored squares.

    Well as a fan of both franchises though I like the Sonic series a lot more but once Greninja got the Smash Ball, it was over but awesome fight none the less. :D

    Love how creative they're getting with the match-ups in DBX. This was a fun fight! I liked the ninja theme they had going on. Though I do wonder what would happen if Espio got the smash ball.

    Would have been more awsom if he used his Ash Greninja form. And the greninja sprites seem kinds messy.

    Decent episode. Kind of turned off by the "voice" for Greninja though. Also really would have liked to see them do some stuff other than just one skill each and physical attacks. Greninja is a pretty powerful water type pokemon, and there's plenty of attacks it can pick up, including some classics like Hydro Pump. I don't really remember much about Espio, since I only ever remember playing him in Sonic Heroes, (not a real big Sonic fan), but I'm sure he had skills other than invisibility as well. DBX should be an opportunity to show off the character's most spectacular skills and make the fights epic, if brief, since the entire idea is that it's for fun rather than based off stats and research.....

    Looks like Genji from Overwatch is next.

    That was great. Real Talk though, Espio would win In a Death Battle. Full invisibility, giant shurikens and far far faster than Greninja.

      @Mattardis Because opinions.

    One, don't spoil who's going to win at the start of the episode *coughsmashballcough*. Suspense is one of the keys of making a good fight.

    Two, take a page from the book of "Hayabusa vs. Hiryu" and pick up the pace because this ninja fight came off as being on the slow side. Speed and energy are also key to making a good fight.

    Ehh, kind of predictable, really. I mean, once the Smash Ball was shown, it became all too obvious who would win. Still a fun one.

    Genji VS Raiden (or Grey Wolf), I'm calling it!

      Raiden was done in quite a spectacular fashion in his regular Death Batttle. Grey Fox is the one they'd most likely use, but they might even go another way and use Adam Jensen from Deus Ex.

      @rikusorasephiroth Hate to break it to you, but it's already confirmed that Genji is facing Raiden.

    I've always wanted this battle for DB but it makes more sense to have on DBX..


    The legendary Starfy vs Ristar

      In a real DB, Ristar would tear Starfy a new one ;)

    That was good! Started off a bit slow, but it soon picked up the pace! Also, Genji's up next, eh? And from what I've heard, he's facing Raiden. I'd be pissed if it was a regular researched DB, cause it's ridiculously unfair for Genji, but since it's DBX, a show where Mikasa can beat Spiderman, I don't mind. Wonder who's animating it though.

      Either Mark Zhang or the one who did Mikasa Vs Spiderman

    I'm glad that Greninja didn't croak, and it always makes me happy to see one of the fifteen thousand Sonic characters die.

    Hah. Knew that Smash Ball was there for a reason. Still wished it Greninja vs. Frog from Chrono Trigger instead.


    So Genji's up next? I take it he's fighting Raiden?

      Frog vs Greninja is solid enough to be a Death Battle fight; these DBX fights tend to be ones that have issues that prevent them from being true Death Battles.


      You have some weird suggestions, many of them absolute stomps and others that don't seem appropriate for a fighting show. Ernest and Madea aren't fighters, for example.

      @SomeCyborgNinja

      Nooooooo, I don't want to see Link or Meta Knight die. Whyyyyyy.

      +KingJotun I think you're missing the point of a show that allows a fight between Ronald McDonald and Colonel Sanders.

    That was awesome. Best DBX in my opinion.


    Also for anybody's wondering Rooster Teeth already confirmed that Genji's fighting Raiden from Metal Gear. Should be cool.

      Wait when did they confirm this

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

      Gonna need to link me to this, and it should make for an easy win for Raiden. You don't need research to know who outclasses who.

      Can't find the link, but if I find it I'll post it. They confirmed that and Link VS Meta Knight.

      As thankful as I am to see this, confirmation that Link vs Meta Knight will be a thing does not make me happy. That's Cartoon Fight Club levels of who-thought-this-was-a-good-idea. Fortunately it's just DBX.

    Anything that gets us clsoer to some non-Gen 1 Pokemon in DB. Rooting for Greninja, but I like Espio too so I'll be fine either way.
