    Isn't this the one fight gamers want to see a Deathbattle for? Why have it a DBX instead of an actual Deathbattle? This could be a season finale.

    Seems about right. Chief may have 40 odd years of experience fighting enemies with better tech, but there is a limit to that. Samus' armor could survive lava and crazy shit like that. But, we know that the real outcome would be Chief transforming into a gorgeous woman and then have a romantic session with Samus that leads into a dance battle!

    Well that's a crushing defeat but remember Master Chief did win before against Jango Fett all the way back in Season 1 so I'm willing to take a loss this time. But next time, it's Vegeta but the good question is he going to be another three time winner since he won in Death Battle and One Minute Melee even though it was against Shadow twice? Guess we'll have to find out in two weeks.

      >Also bullshit Master Chief would beat Samus


      It's a non-researched fight, so there's literally no point in bringing this up.


      But if you do, Samus realistically one-shots, so...


      >he's stronger


      Nope.


      >he has military training his entire life


      And Samus has fought the likes of Ridley and Mother Brain her entire life. What's your point?


      >and can survive atmospheric retry


      Cute. Samus can tank hits from and overpower Ridley, someone who can destroy mountains with ease, on a daily basis.


      That's nowhere near Samus' limit, either, but that alone should get the point across.

    Good fight. Its biggest issue is that it can't do in just a minute and a half what Monty could do in around five. But what we do get is certainly good.


    Though, because of that time limit, neither fighter could do as much as they could. Both Samus and Chief have various weapons and abilities out the rear that could easily give us a fight lasting around five minutes.


    And while I do think Samus would beat Chief in a true battle (Which I would love this as), I honestly think Chief puts up a way better fight than people give him credit for, as he's physically stronger than Samus and has superior defensive options, though Samus trumps him in speed, mobility and offense.


    Next DBX has Vegeta? I'm guessing vs Thor. That's true Death Battle material, but then again, so was this episode.

    -Quote (Cave Story) vs Shovel Knight

    -Wario vs Conker

    -Mara (Persona) vs Gaping Dragon (Dark Souls)

      I would argue that Samus is much, much stronger, actually. Watch how she swings this nearly bus-sized lava whale (called the Vorash) around the room and then throws it into a wall hard enough to kill it on impact. https://youtu.be/Nsn5jiN9F-k?t...

      She seems to do this almost effortlessly. I have yet to see or hear about John doing anything to compete with this.


      Samus has also gotten some nice new defensive options. As of the new 3DS game coming out in a couple weeks, "Metroid: Samus Returns," which is a remake of Metroid II, Samus has a lightning shield now, which totally covers her armor and prevents damage, much like armor lock. The most important difference being that she can still move freely. Second, she now has a time slowing ability called Phase Drift, which slows down time around Samus, while she is unaffected by the manipulation. These are finite abilities powered by her new Aeion Ability gauge, but they still last for a decent amount of time.

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

      2 weeks ago

      @Varia31 Chief can flip Scorpion tanks, which weigh 66 metric tons, with a single hand like it's nothing. In comparison, a humpback whale (Which seems an apt comparison to that Vorash) weighs an average of around 36 metric tons. I still maintain that Chief is physically stronger than Samus, but again, Samus' offensive options still blow most of Chief's out of the water in both quality and quantity.


      The lightning armor is definitely a great defensive option and counters Chief at close-range, but I'd consider Phase Drift more of a utility option that supplements her speed and offense more than it does her defense. Overtaxing a suit of power armor that casually shrugs off atmospheric re-entry and tanks nukes is a tall order, but it does really help on that front. And of course, it's important to remember that the Aeion abilities are limited in supply and an extended battle could cost Samus their advantages, whereas Chief's greatest asset is his perpetually-regenerating shield system. Though an extended battle also hurts Chief by exhausting most of his weaponry.

    • Varia31

      2 weeks ago

      @KingJotun The tank-flipping is a game mechanic. In lore, a Spartan can only lift about 3 times their own body weight, and the armor does amplify that a bit. Considering a Spartan such as Chief weighs about a ton in his armor, he is only around the 3-4 ton range. So I would say that Samus is stronger, canonically speaking.


      Another thing is that, while these defensive options of Samus' are limited in how long they last, they, once again, last long enough to give her ample time to finish the job. The Lightning armor is also offensive, as it overcharges her melee to the point that she can project a short energy wave from her cannon when swinging, almost like a bayonet. Another problem is Samus' Screw Attack, which would render her either invulnerable or give her a massive defense buff, while also shredding the Chief, making trying to get close to Samus a bad idea.


      Master Chief being surviving a nuke is a huge misconception that I keep hearing about lately. Do not forget that Cortana saved Chief from that nuke by shielding him. Notice the cage around Chief in the Halo 4 cutscene. He was also separated from the nuke. And he didn't "shrug off" atmospheric reentry. He was using a ship fragment to provide a heat shield, and when he finally made landfall, his armor locked up and he was knocked out, leaving a little damage on the armor. Shrugging off would have been getting right back up, not being out for a while. It had to lock up to protect the Chief from being killed.

      @Varia31 Fair enough on most accounts, or at least seemingly so. As you can probably guess, I'm largely unfamiliar with Halo, but I felt like I had to at least try playing devil's advocate. And while I'm a huge Metroid fan, I couldn't get myself to play Other M all the way through.


      While I have you here, though, would you say that Samus vs Chief is a good example of the inherent advantage science fantasy has over science fiction?

    • Varia31

      2 weeks ago

      @KingJotun Oh, that's perfectly alright. I'm not really into Halo myself. I've played Halo 2 all the way through and a little of the newer ones, but otherwise I've just done a lot of research. As my name suggests, I am a Metroid fan! But I try to look at these from a non-biased standpoint, so I have looked into Chief as much as possible and keep up with the story as I do find it interesting. Other M I did finish, and while the game is overall a disappointment, there are still some nice feats that Samus has in the game. And now we have Samus Returns on the way, and then Prime 4! We'll keep seeing Samus get new tricks up her sleeve, which is pretty cool to look forward to.


      Anyway, thank you for your time!

    • Varia31

      @KingJotun Whoops, I missed your question. Yes, I would say that it's a good example. The problem with this match-up is that Samus is WAY less realistic than Chief is, and because of that, she has access to a lot of outrageous powers that he simply can't hold a candle to, as he more based in a realistic standpoint.

    One of the better fights we've seen in DBX, for sure. That being said, it always bothers me a bit how they pick two fighters who mostly use ranged weaponry, then end up spending most of the fight in melee range instead of making good use of said ranged weaponry. I'd love to see more episodes where we get a good gun battle......

Of course, this has been significantly reduced since they started to focus on Death Battle. Also, OMM broke off ages ago, remember?

      You acknowledge that they haven't been that way for, what, five years now, so why were you expecting for them to fuck over Samus?


      They've praised the Metroid series (Excluding Other M, obviously) god knows how many times, and they even said that the Halo series was the #1 series that needed to die at one point, so uh...

      They made two Metroid fights, the pilot episode, and the remastered version of the pilot episode that came out four years later.


      You're acting as if they used to do what you said constantly, but considering that there was a 42 Episode gap between both Samus VS Fetts...That doesn't add up with your point.


      >These people are absolute idiots when it comes to Metroid, trust me. They actually believe Prime is worthwhile.

      I mean, you can have differing opinions on the Prime Trilogy all you want, but you're literally insulting other people for liking it...which just makes you come off as an asshole.


      Also, your first comment said that they hated Metroid, and now you're saying that they thought Metroid Prime was worthwhile, so...

      1. And in both battles, they blatantly used terrible misinformation. Samus did not blow up a planet, that was the Space Pirates. Seriously, how can anyone with even a passing knowledge of the series make a mistake THAT idiotic?


      2. Prime really isn't that good. These dudebros only like it because it's an FPS, and not even a good one. It's like if Banjo Kazooie only got popular with Nuts and Bolts.

      1. Again, those were the Space Pirates, stop pretending Samus is some kind of Psychopath.


      2. Those were for show at best, they still gave those games 9s and 10s. 


      3. My point is that they don't even remember the classics. They care only for the generic, clunky, linear FPS crap of the Primes. Other M did better than the Primes could ever try.


      4. Considering they only bother with Prime, I say it's the same as hating. They're certainly not bothering with Samus Returns, I guarantee you that. They're supporting real metroid, they're whining about how Samus wasn't always a Psycho as they thought, they never even gave a proper reason to hate Other M. It was always "WAAAAAAAAAA Other M not good, and I don't know why, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA". If you can't say why a game is bad, then maybe you're just whining.

      >Again, those were the Space Pirates, stop pretending Samus is some kind of Psychopath.

      Dark Aether's destruction is caused by Samus gaining all of the pieces of the Light of Aether, causing the dimension the planet resides in to become unstable and ultimately collapse.


      Phaaze was destroyed when Samus destroyed the Aurora Unit connected to it, taking out both the planet and Dark Samus with it.


      Zebes and SR388 were destroyed on accident (Though, they still qualify for her destroying the planets, despite you saying any idiot would know that she didn't), but the first two fit with "Samus being willing to sacrifice a planet to achieve her goal", which was all that they said about it.


      You'd know this, if you did any research whatsoever.


      >Those were for show at best, they still gave those games 9s and 10s.


      Every point you've tried to make about that involve videos that, according to you, came prior to Death Battle, so your entire argument revolves around nearly 7 year old videos at this point.


      Since then, they said that both franchises needed to die, and even when they have given them praise, they made a separate video discussing the problems with them.


      >My point is that they don't even remember the classics

      >Considering they only bother with Prime, I say it's the same as hating


      Yeah, they've never praised a non-Prime Metroid game before.


      >If you can't say why a game is bad, then maybe you're just whining.


      Most notable reason was due to how shitty it portrayed Samus' character compared to every other game in the franchise, including the classics.


      Also, going by your own logic, you've just been whining like a little bitch about the Prime series, so...

      1. Oh, you're talking about the psychotic Samus from the Shark jumping magic parts of Prime. Yeah, you do know that literally no Prime could possibly be canon due to the sheer stupidity of that, right?

      And again, the canon ones were the fault of Space Pirates. Specifically Ridley, who I seem to need to remind you is basically space dragon Hitler. I mean, come on, now you're just blindly taking their side.


      2. Yeah, my point revolves around their track record. History and such. You're denying history.


      3.  Yeah, they can't even say her name right, I know. Also, that video makes it sound like they hate the idea that she is a woman. So you kind of messed up there.


      4. Exactly the problem, they hate that she got character beyond "Obey Government, kill enemy". Seriously, they only want a fanatical psychopath who blindly obey her handlers. Of course, you'll probably whine to me about how I'm wrong and you're right without any real evidence, but in the end, that is the case. Seriously, Screwattack, despite their name, hates Metroid. They're actively contributing to it's downfall (By asking for more generic linear FPS crap), and I am more than certain they chose it from a dart board filled with cool sounding words they didn't know the source of. It's like if I named my website after something from the Halo games. I hate Halo, but I could still do it.

      Yeah, because destroying planets inhabited by nothing but creatures that are too dangerous to exist in the universe makes you a psychopath.


      That's like saying she was a psychopath when she went out to genocide the Metroids, but I guess we're just going to ignore that and act like Prime ruined Samus' character.


      >Yeah, you do know that literally no Prime could possibly be canon due to the sheer stupidity of that, right?

      Yes, which is why Nintendo deemed the Prime series non-canon, and have completely abandoned it.


      ...Oh wait.


      >Yeah, my point revolves around their track record. History and such. You're denying history.

      You're denying everything I bring up because "lol they liked call of duty like 7 years ago", despite you acknowledging that they stopped doing stuff like that when they began to focus on Death Battle.


      >Yeah, they can't even say her name right


      Neither can Nintendo, so I guess that means that the company that made Metroid hated it even when they were making Metroid games regularly.


      >Also, that video makes it sound like they hate the idea that she is a woman.

      That's literally the exact opposite of what the video said.


      >Exactly the problem, they hate that she got character beyond "Obey Government, kill enemy"


      Yeah, because being scared shitless of a character you've killed multiple times without issue is good character development.


      >Seriously, they only want a fanatical psychopath who blindly obey her handlers

      So...Other M? (I mean, genociding a species of aliens that are a threat to the entire universe obviously makes Prime Samus a maniac, so it should apply to the other versions of Samus as well)


      >you'll probably whine to me about how I'm wrong and you're right without any real evidence


      "ScrewAttack! hates Metroid and nearly anything Nintendo makes!"

      "ScrewAttack! blindly enjoys FPS games despite them calling out their flaws multiple times!"

      "Metroid Prime sucks because it's an FPS!"


      >Seriously, Screwattack, despite their name, hates Metroid.


      Which is why they literally said that every Metroid game other than Other M was amazing.


      >They're actively contributing to it's downfall (By asking for more generic linear FPS crap)

      ...Which is why all they've been asking for is another Metroid game, not even a Prime specifically, just another game to redeem the franchise.


      And we're getting two regardless.


      So uh...


      Then again, not sure what I expected from someone who said that "Disliking a game without a reason just means you're whining", when you've been saying Metroid Prime is shit in nearly every reply for no real reason, other than it being an FPS.

And don't give me that "It's not hell, it's the Dark World" shit, because Dark World is another name for Hell. Also, the Metroids were controlled by space pirates, that was little more than destroying an enemy weapon (Although Fusion brings a good point by saying the Metroids ate a deadlier threat fro breakfast)


      2. I hate that Nintendo is keeping that Fanfiction CoD series too. 


      3. So you're prolonging this whole ordeal because....? No seriously, you just admitted I was right there, and you're prolonging this conflict. You can stop anytime.


      4. Oh sure, Smash Announcer is totally canon. OH WAIT....


      5. The title "Nintendo's biggest lie" has negative connotations and amounts to little more than clickbait. At it's most likely, any compliment was sarcastic and back handed.


      6. Oh how cute, another Prime Apologist that has clearly never played Other M, let alone any non-Prime Metroid game. Honey, Ridley only died for real in Super Metroid, which Other M takes place immediately afterwards. That dark chapter in her life was finally closed only to be ripped open like newly placed stitches. It's called PTSD, and it's preferable to Prime's Psychotic Lapdog.


      7. Honey, she was ordered to go to hell in Prime, she BEGRUDGINGLY works with the government in Other M. Jeez, I get that you work for Screwattack, but this is ridiculous, even for them.


      8. I gave evidence. Where is yours?


      9. No, they only said Prime was any good. They never mention the classic aside from blaming her for the Space Pirate's genocide. 


      10. No, they're only asking for Prime. Screwattack is the kind of person that whines about Samus Returns but cheers for that number 4 that Nintendo clearly only hacked together the night before the announcement to please you idiots.

      1. The inhabitants of Dark Aether were literally waging a war outside of that dimension, so yes, they were threatening the world outside of it, and Samus had reason to destroy it.


      2. Anti-Prime Circlejerk Counter: 1


      3. Yes, and you can also stop anytime, I'm not forcing you to reply, so if you don't want to do this, then don't do this.


      4. I never even remotely said it was, but it shows that your point of "They mispronounced Samus' name so they hate Metroid" is complete bullshit.


      5. They said that it was cool that Samus ended up as a woman, and while they referred to it as a lie, they said that they were glad they did, as otherwise the game wouldn't have sold as well. The fact that you say that makes it seem like you didn't even watch the video.


      6. I've never touched a Metroid Prime game in my life, and even I can tell you that what you're saying is bullshit. She had no trouble defeating the murderer of her parents on two prior occasions, so even assuming that she thought he was truly dead, she would've had no problems when he supposedly returned, since he came back from supposed death in Super Metroid, and she was perfectly fine.


      Also, nice insults, it clearly shows how mature you are when dealing with these.


      7. Which is why she doesn't turn the heat resistant setting on her power suit, in a volcano, until she is specifically told to by the government?  Also I don't work for ScrewAttack, literally nothing I said should've made you come to that conclusion.


      8. You said that ScrewAttack hated non-Prime Metroid despite me posting videos that showed they clearly didn't.  You said they blindly enjoyed Call of Duty and Halo despite me linking videos that had SA saying that they should've died. You said that Metroid Prime was shit, and your only reason was just "lol FPS".


      9. They literally said in the video I linked that Metroid and Super Metroid were absolutely amazing games, so again, you clearly did not even watch the video. And they never blamed Samus for the Space Pirates' genocide, so you're literally just making shit up to prove your point.


      10. I can't tell what's worse, your sheer ignorance on SA's thoughts on Classic Metroid, or the fact that you're just trying to insult me during all of this. To quote Socrates, "When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser"


      Also, I'd just like to remind you that you've given no proof that SA hates Classic Metroid whatsoever. They've literally said that it was great in the video I linked (Which, again, you completely ignored), and your argument seems to be "They like Prime so they must hate Classic Metroid"...which doesn't make sense...at all.

      1. And it doesn't make the slightest bit of sense. Is this Metroid or Doom? Because I would rather have Metroid.


      2. I notice you have no real comment.


      3. I essentially said that to you. You can ignore this, your bias won't rub off on me.


      4.  Then why did you bring it up? Because you have no real argument?


      5. Still seemed remarkably negative. Almost to a teenage Edgelord degree. Just saying, if they really do like the series, they should, ya know, like the series.


      6. So if an entire battalion of Nazi Soldiers randomly showed up on a WW2 veterans doorstep, he should relish the opportunity for battle? That sounds like you expect all soldiers to psychotic madmen. I mean, in case you forgot, between the lack of the needed tech and the fact she totally froze in Prime as well, you have no real ground to stand on with this argument. Also, why are insults only bad now? 


      7. She was more begrudging than she ever was when the government literally sent her to hell. She was all too happy to go straight into a death world with toxic air when the government asked her to. Seriously, why is this only a problem in Other M? OH RIGHT, because it's cool to hate Other M and hive mind fandoms would turn on you for daring to point out all the times the exact same thing happened in literally any other game.


      8. Yeah, I did. They rate those games highly all the time. And between you and me, I doubt Activision was paying for those specific reviews. Seriously, you join yesterday or something?


      9. You said, mere moments ago, that Samus did blow up planets. You contradicted yourself there. Don't pretend that I said what you said.


      10. Yeah, you lost ages ago with your insults. So why do you continue?


      Look, I get that this fandom hates truth. I get that I am the only one who doesn't like it when a vast world of action packed exploration is reduced to a linear FPS. I get that I'm the only one who likes Samus as more than a mannequin with an insatiable bloodlust controlled by the government. You however, you've done nothing but whine and cry and insult me for daring to have a different opinion. That is on you.

      "And it doesn't make the slightest bit of sense. Is this Metroid or Doom? Because I would rather have Metroid."


      ...What does Doom have to do with any of this?


      If it's because "Samus is in hell killing shit", Dark Aether was a separate dimension created due to energy from Aether, so uh...where do you even get her being in hell from?


      "I notice you have no real comment."

      I mean, the original point you made was just saying "Metroid Prime sucks because lol FPS" for the 7th time, so I don't know why you're criticizing me for having no real comment.


      "Then why did you bring it up? Because you have no real argument?"


      I was pointing out why "They used a different pronunciation of Samus so they hate Metroid even though they literally say they thought it was amazing in the next sentence" made no sense.


      "Still seemed remarkably negative. Almost to a teenage Edgelord degree. Just saying, if they really do like the series, they should, ya know, like the series."


      Kinda shows that you either didn't watch the video, or are literally just nitpicking the title of the video.


      "I mean, in case you forgot, between the lack of the needed tech and the fact she totally froze in Prime as well"


      No, she had the needed tech, she just wasn't specifically ordered by the government to use it.


      Also, the moment Ridley was in range in Prime, Samus went out to fight him. Hell, in Prime 3, her first action when finding Ridley is too shoot him out of the air.


      I don't even mind Samus' character being delved into more than the other games. The problem is that it was a step backwards from how she was portrayed in previous games, and hell, even the manga Samus' character was supposed to have been inspired by (Manga Samus shows one panel of fear upon seeing him...before immediately exclaiming that she wasn't who she was before, and killing him in a matter of seconds. Compare this to Other M Samus, who was frozen for nearly 2 minutes straight, had her Power Suit dematerialized out of fear, and only decided to fight Ridley like she regularly did after Anthony's supposed death)


      >Seriously, why is this only a problem in Other M


      Simple. There's a difference between following orders to go into a war-zone (Which happens every game, and she does so because she's the most capable of doing it), and not using basic functions of her Power Suit because the government didn't say she could yet.


      >You said, mere moments ago, that Samus did blow up planets


      Yes, and the instances where she was willing to do so had nothing to do with the Space Pirates.


      >Yeah, you lost ages ago with your insults


      Oh, you mean when I called thousands of people idiots because they enjoyed a video game?


      Other than pointing out how your logic works against you, I don't even see where I could've "insulted" you.


      >Look, I get that this fandom hates truth.

      >Treating your opinion as a fact


      "I get that I am the only one who doesn't like it when a vast world of action packed exploration is reduced to a linear FPS"

      ...Except Prime was built around exploration, and there were multiple hidden power-ups and unlockables like the classic games. Not to mention that Other M's level design was less built for exploration, especially since exploring previous areas was often impossible due to it locking off where you came.


      "you've done nothing but whine and cry and insult me for daring to have a different opinion"


      Nice description of how you've been acting towards people who liked Prime.


      Also, I'd like to point out how this entire conversation started because you said that they hated Metroid (Your original comment didn't even say Classic Metroid, just the series in general).


      They listed Metroid as the third best NES game (Only behind The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros. 3), and said that Super Metroid is not only the greatest SNES game of all time, but the best 2D Adventure game as well. 


      Oh, and both videos came out when Hard News was a thing, so you lost your entire argument right there.


      And with that, I think I'm done.


      You're probably going to reply with a comment completely ignoring every point I made, still going on about how ScrewAttack saying they love Metroid means nothing, citing outdated videos that you don't even bother to link as proof, while insulting people to make your argument worse, all while bringing up that Metroid Prime was the worst mistake Nintendo ever made for...no real reason.


      And being perfectly honest, I don't even care.


      I've spent enough of my life dealing with this, and going by your previous actions, you're just going to keep insisting the same flawed argument despite it being disproven countless times over.


      And y'know what, you can keep doing that.


      I just won't be around to see it.

      1. Where do I get hell from? Well, some obvious allegory to God suddenly has an evil counterpart, and creates a literal dark world. How could it NOT be hell? And let's not forget the blatantly magical light and dark elements that suddenly appear from nowhere. A dimension of pure agony whose denizens scorn the holy light is quite obviously hell.


      2. Dude, Prime sucks because it takes a fast paced action platformer with great exploration and turns it into a slow, clunky, linear FPS. You're focusing on the wrong part, I hate how it's slow, clunky, linear and expects us to accept Magic that appears for 1 trilogy that writes itself out of canon. The fact that FPS loving dudebros latch onto it like a god is more against the fandom than anything.


      3. Yeah, you admitted defeat. I know.


      4. Nah man, I'm pointing out ages of bullshit peddled to you. They pretended to like it. Truth is, they were either remarkably sarcastic, or "Ironically" liking it. That means they hate it.


      5. The NES can't run Destiny you dumbass. Not her tech, the system's tech. NES couldn't do the neccesary cutscenes, and Prime STILL had her freezing in fear. Twice your argument has been defeated. As for Prime 3, that was THE EXACT SAME REACTION FROM OTHER M. Fear, then anger, then saved by random mary sue. Why is it loved in linear Magical FPS Prime, but hated in actually canon Other M? Oh right, a clear bias from whiney dudebros like yourself.


      6.  So the difference is that there is no difference and you're following popular opinion to be cool? Got it.


      7. Dude, when you blame Samus for setting the bomb that Ridley and Mother Brain set, you're saying she is a space pirate and that Ridley and Mother Brain are the heroes. You literally have it backwards.


      8. You've done nothing but dismiss my hate of Prime's many many problems as a generic hatred of FPS games. And that was long before I said anything against you. You lost it first.


      9. Oh sure, hallways are exploration, huh? An entire world is a single hallway and walking up and down it is totally exploration. Oh wait, that's not right at all. Other M had more than that, as did Super, and even the original Metroid. I played all the games, I know what I am talking about. Prime is linear, it literally forces you into a straight line with occasional terrible First Person Platforming segment that takes way too long. If you call that exploration, then Skyrim would be impossible for you to comprehend.


      10. I've beaten every point you made, the only reason you think you've come out on top is because of a lack of self awareness and you were backed up of a hivemind fandom that even Sonic Fans would call unpleasable.

    Really, really good fight. I really loved the pacing and setting, and how the fight felt like it was on a 3D plane. I'm also happy that Samus won, cause, well, Samus.


    As for next time, it seems like we have the Prince of Saiyans. Wonder who his opponent is. Ngl, while it would be hilarious for Shadow to fight him and lose again, I kinda hope it's someone different. Twice is enough.
