    I really hope scrooge wins, his arsenal is huge, his strength is amazing, and his smarts are almost impossible to beat.

    Alright, who's the Shovel Knight fanboy that went through here and downvoted any comments that said that Scrooge would win?

    I'm gonna call McDuck for the winner due to an episode in which he was falsely sent to prison. In one scene he consecutively beat half a dozen prisoners at armwrestling without any effort. He quoted his strength, "from lifting his money bags every day."

      Loved that one. The first guy he beat picked him and his ironball shackle and threw him across the room like a bowling ball.

      The best part about the story you told?

      That's actually on the lower spectrum of Scrooge's strength feats.

      He can buy himself to victory [he can buy lots of guns.] plus, he already has LASERS in his safe, hence the lyrics: Life is like a hurricane, here in Duck Burg, Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes, it's a duck blur, Might solve a mystery, or rewrite history!

    How many foes have thought that they were about to be sexually assaulted by Boomstick?

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

    So Boomstick's favorite weapon is clearly an imitation of the great Nine-Toothed Rake favored by Zhu Bajie from Journey to the West, the character that's frequently referred to as either "Pig" or "Idiot."

    ...

    Wow...that's really appropriate, now that I think about it.

    He doesn't really need a magic shovel, or whatever it is. A plain old shovel all on it's own can be surprisingly deadly if used right. Though I still think Scrooge McDuck is going to win.

    Don't underestimate the power of a shovel.  I mean, even normal ones are deadly. You ever been hit with a shovel?

      Yes. It hurts.

      Resident Evil 7 and Vento Aureo can attest to this.

    "Order of No Quarter" I don't get it. 

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

      "No quarter" basically means "take no prisoners". And Shovel Knight is a throwback to classic arcade games, where you got a game over if you ran out of quarters. So it's basically the Order of Death but with a video gamey twist. At least as far as I know.

    Poor Shovel Knight. His shovel blade may pack a punch, but his foe has a great deal more in his favor. And he's not even that good a match for Scrooge in theme, anyway, not in any significant aspect. Side-scrolling and collecting valuables aren't exactly elements unique to these two.


    But on the bright side, Jetz is animating this episode so at least the fight itself should be entertaining, and both characters lend themselves well to a more comedic episode. Just a shame they're fighting each other as opposed to other foes.


    And I see what you did there at the end with the "fowl" pun, Death Battle. A low-hanging fruit, but still humorous.


    Gordon Freeman vs Isaac Clarke

    Sokka vs Jaune

    And taking suggestions for foes for Quote (Cave Story) and Frog (Chrono Trigger). I have my own ideas, but I doubt this fanbase would enjoy them all that much.

      Sokka vs Jaune is actually kinda brilliant now that I think about it. Both are unskilled melee fighters that come into their own as their series goes on, both display more skill in lateral thinking and tactics rather than pure fighting ability, and both use a sword as their most effective weapon. It would be interesting to see whether Sokka's more varied and dynamic arsenal could overcome Jaune's superior defences.

      @howlingarmadillo Would also make for a good comedy battle, like a 3D Hercule Satan vs Dan Hibiki. Only problem currently is Jaune's semblance; he has one and is implied to be capable of using it involuntarily, but we don't know exactly how it works or how much of his aura it uses. All we have is that one time in Forever Fall, where it seems to rebound damage, but there are a lot of missing particulars there.


      However, these battles can take years to make it from the comments section to the episode list, so perhaps we'll get some answers on it by then.

    Can't believe I'm saying this, but it is a curb-stomp in Scrooge's favor.

      You think they'll give Scrooge access to the Universal Solvent? If they do, Shovel Knight won't even stand a chance of hurting the duck.

      @KingJotun even without it, he is strangely really strong, fast and tough

      The toonforce in general amps up cartoon characters' physical capabilities to ridiculous levels. Scrooge is definitely no exception, though he is not the most extreme example. I want to say the fictional character with the most obscene amount of power granted by the toonforce is Popeye.

    And so the wait begins.
