    Magneto was b.s. at the end and it backfired

    just for fun and general nerd interest - heres a few things people complaining  in the comments seem to be missing from starwars lore ... reminder that i know and understand these fights are done for fun with no research - just thought these points would be cool to add - 


    1) - Though it has not technically been returned to cannon since the Disney takeover (please feel free to correct me if im wrong here :) ) - Vaders armour was primarily composed of durasteel, obsidian, and plasteel , whilst obsidian is clearly a non metallic substance being volcanic glass, durasteel is also composed of an alloy made primarily from various elements likely unknown to magneto and carbon - another non metallic element , and plasteel of metal and acrylic polymer weave - so whilst magneto may have had some degree of control over the armour the amount of control would likely be limited .... even more so due to the following point 

    2) vaders armour in legends was imbuded with sith alchemy - not only reinforcing its structure and function (with what is essentially magic i might add) but also amplifying vaders connection to the dark side 

    3) whilst vader may not be as powerful as Anikin - there have been times both in cannon and legends where he has sustained himself and his suit on the dark side alone.

    4)  lightsabers no longer run on magnetic containment since the Disney takeover  - they run by channeling an amount  of electrical energy through a kyber crystal to form a blade - however the hilts are normally made out of metal and as far as im aware vaders was never re-enforced in any way unlike his suit - making it very  likely magneto could just crush or manipulate it 


    again this is just for fun in the hopes of leaving you all better informed :) - feel free to add or correct me if iv missed anything

    BS. Total BS. Lightsabers use magnetic containment to form the blade. Also, Darth's life support system is greatly controlled by metal. Magneto would have killed him within seconds just by shutting him off.

      Agreed, but keep in mind that Vader has used the force to sustain his body at times when his life support fails. Though Magneto could just turn Vader's armor and his arm into an iron maiden.

    The sound design still needs work. The lightsaber and magneto magnetism sounds were good, but a good number of the impacts sounded weak. Other than that, pretty good match. But again, I thought we were gonna get a Dragonball based DBX, since you clearly showed vegeta's Silhouette in a previous next time dealie.

    I take Magneto in a fight against a guy in a metal life support suit (with metal limbs) any day.

    I'm actually amazed there are no "the Earth is upside down" jokes yet.

    Also, I think people overrate Magneto, mainly since he should have beat the X-men time and again, yet his arrogance always cost him victory against clever opponents. From analytics of power alone, Magneto would be the likely winner, but, to paraphrase an old quote, 'every weapon has the same flaw, its wielder" so too can it be said of mutant powers.

    Marvel Universe has quite the canonic army that would lay COMPLETE waste to the Star Wars Universe. BUT ... this match makes sense.

    With only one (all be it powerful) mutation VS. midi-chlorians of the void,.. Magneto was doomed to eat crow. After all,.. "He is more Machine now than Man,.. twisted and Evil." (Obi-Wan - 1983 EY)


    This gave Anakin the advantage, still having organics and all. Now if it were Darth Penny,... well We all saw how that turned out.

      You mean it gave him a DISadvantage. Vader should have lost instantly seeing as how his suit could just have been turned off

    I call B.S.  As much as I'd want Vader to win, Magneto would destroy a cyborg with metal limbs and suit at close range almost instantly.  At a great distance Vader could force choke Magneto without fear of a counter-attack.

      Actually, that's correct, it doesn't matter who wins DBX cause it's just for fun.

    This is why I love DBX. Get an awesome fight where the one I'd want to win wins, even when he'd stand absolutely no chance in a research based fight.....

    The fuck? Man come on most of Darths body is cybernetic implants he could have just ripped them off the moment the battle started

      Wow, it's almost like DBX is a fun mini-series that is purely for entertainment purposes where the animators get free reign to do whatever they want.

    Loved this! Thought the solution to the force joke issue was really interesting and that ending was really cool. Definitely one of the best DBXs yet.

    Pretty cool fight. Even if we know Magneto would probably win in an actual death battle.

    ...I think. Y'know, this could actually make for a really interesting episode of Death Battle!

    Damn, Magneto lost. Ah well, Star Wars could use a win once in a while, so I ain't mad. It's been a while since we've seen something from Mark Zhang, so I was hyped when I noticed that he was animating this right before the episode started. The animation itself was great, though the models could have used more texture. I can't tell whether Zhang had fun animating this or not, cause on one hand, he made use of the environment that he put the characters in, on the other, I imagine that animating this must have been a pain in the ass as a result.

    Entertaining, and neat to see both VA's on DBX and a unique approach to this sort of fight (Manipulating the environment as opposed to just punching or slashing). But at the same time it was kinda sluggish at points and, yeah, Vader would never win this. I know it's just a DBX, but magnetism vs metal has an obvious result. Just ask Penny.


    DBX Suggestions:

    -Quote (Cave Story) vs Shovel Knight

    -Wario vs Conker

      I'd have to disagree on the "Vader is metal so he'd lose" argument. Sure, Magneto can manipulate metal, but Vader can manipulate pretty much anything he wants. As they showed, Vader is just as capable of force-choking Magneto to death as Magneto is at messing up his mechanical parts. If one of them attempted to do either of those things, the other could respond with the other, leaving them at a stalemate. Vader's form of "kinesis" is simply superior as it grants greater reflexes, precognition, and isn't limited to certain objects. They really are similar powerwise, but Magneto is just held back by requiring metal/general magnetism to be involved, and The Force gives so many more abilities than just simply moving things on top of that.

    Sucks that the better character lost, and the models were odd, especially for Magneto, but still a very cool fight.

    Though animation looked unappealing the fight was pretty cool and I'm happy my favourite villain won.
