    ...this is BS. Shadow can move at the speed of light. Mewtwo wouldn't have had time to attack his mind before he died.

    It will probably never happen but I would love to see Yuno Gasai (Mira Nikki) vs. Yandere-Chan (Yandere Simulator). I don't know if Yuno's Diary would be too OP though.

      Horrible roflstomp in favor of Lucifer Morningstar. He is above Death and even the Source, and has virtually infinite reality warping and manipulation powers. He makes Spectre, Trigon and pretty much everyone in the DC multiverse look like harmless amebas. To quote Dream (a very powerful abstract being): "Saving only his Creator, he is, perhaps, the most powerful being there is," and even admits that he is afraid of Lucifer.


      And She-Hulk is nowhere near Supergirl's level.

    Death battle, I was seriously disappointed in this fight for the lack of understanding the characters for this battle. While I understand the rules in how a character is used and what abilities can be present and not present for each fight, but these abilities used made no sense to the even that took place or how it was arranged. For example, Mewtwo using Light Screen and Reflect do not form barriers to stop all attacks or reflect it. Its a status buff to help reduce physical and special attacks. Even if the manga showed them or a tv showed this as such, it does not mean its accurate to the abilities true purpose because the games reflect the use of the abilities. While Mewtwo can put his physic energy into physical attacks and read minds. But reading minds take a strong focus to pin point direct correlation of such specific info like Maria and learning of his whole history in less of a second doesn't hold in a straight fight. Even the whole wiping memory made no sense to this death battle. Yes, it was used in the movies, but a one time use does not reflect the entirety of the Pokemon since no other Mewtwo could do this. The movies used two different Mewtwo with completely two different personalities. Only having one of them able to use it and another that cannot does not make accurate data. Even if the goal for each character is to embody all the versions to bring out the maximum abilities for the Death Battle, if a move was only used once for the sake of the plot rather then being true for all versions, its not accurate data nor a viable means to use in combat.

    When it came to Shadow, I saw the speed was on point, the lines for him, and the use of the chaos emeralds, and even his abilities were right in place. But why would Shadow stand there to announcing Chaos Control so slowly? In both game and show, he is able to use Chaos Control to slow down time, or travel through space instantaneously without waiting. Shadow's connection to the Chaos Force makes him use its power greater than Sonic or any other Mobian with knowledge of the technique. But both times he used Chaos Control, he just stood there for Mewtwo to read his thoughts. In Shadow the Hedgehog, he was immune to mind control or mind effects after breaking free from Black Doom. As for his identity, the game Shadow the Hedgehog itself was responsible for its multiple story lines that were all lies until going through the true ending. He gave up his identity search when he began working for G.U.N. in Sonic 06. (I know, worse game ever). But this was completely an unneeded past info that was used just for Mewtwo's victory, which is a disgrace to the idea of full on combat. Even the spoon thing was okay in use by Mewtwo since the manga had multiple references to it.

    Look, I know it takes hard work to go through tons of info, making the animations needed, and working with the whole team to make a watchable show. And I love Death Battle to always see it every month with new fights and character battles. Its exciting to me and I enjoy watching them. Every chance I can, I re-watching the older ones for my times of enjoyment. But I would think that this battle was undermined to both the facts and abilities of characters. Resulting in a way that made it feel anti-climatic, and just felt unfulfilling. I really hope that more info and more details will be arrange for future death battles. I am still a fan of you guys and love all your work and hope to see more amazing stuff soon.

    I still don't understand why is non-canon Sonic Boom having info used on it as official analysis?


    That's like saying Robin's personality is he is dimwitted and stupid because Teen Titans GO! tells you he is, and using it as official info.


    Can someone at least state what the fine line is on using non-canon source material? When is it okay to use, and when is it not?


    I'm just curious about this.

    • Ultimate_Mega_Gamer Ultimate Mega Gamer

      One of the rules of Death Battle is that non-canon sources are used evenly. If a non-canon source is used for one character it'll be used for the other. For example, if two characters in Death Battle are primarily from TV & sources for one of them are taken from a non-canon manga then sources from the other characters non-canon manga would also be used. Also, in this case I'm pretty sure Sonic Boom wasn't used for evidence/reserch so much as it was used as a visual aid.

    • JTH11111

      7 months ago

      @Ultimate_Mega_Gamer They used Shadow being mind controlled before based on the Sonic Boom series, even though the Shadow the Hedgehog video game stated he was immune to mind control.


      People have stated that Black Doom did briefly had Shadow in his control, but it's not exactly the case. Black Doom was in Shadow's head because they were one in the same as Shadow was created by Black Doom's blood. It was the "I've always been here, Your thoughts are my thoughts" theory (A la Captain Picard/Borg) But Doom never had actual control of Shadow's mind, so Shadow was never under any form of mind control except for the Sonic Boom series.

    • Ultimate_Mega_Gamer Ultimate Mega Gamer

      7 months ago

      Well then if they were using Sonic Boom for evidence then it's fair. Because they obviously used both the Pokemon games & anime which are supposed to be separate canons.

      Can we really be sure? I mean, they did say the would be announcing it shortly. Announce what? Wouldn't they have already showed what it was? Maybe I'm pulling at straws for Cinder Fall VS The Meta happening but it seems there's more to this that meets the eye. (Or at least, right now) EDIT: Maybe this is more like Vegeta VS Mewtwo and is just a partnership battle that doesn't rule out other potential matchups, like the aforementioned Cinder VS Meta as well as Pyrrah VS Carolina. Still doesn't explain the announcement thing, though if they are just referring to a trailer I will be happy they finally showed both fighters for once

    Forgot to ask. Can we please get a Pokemon that ISN'T from the horrid Gen 1 in Death Battle? Can we please get something like Lucario or Froslass? Something from the better generations (4-6..and maybe the upcoming 7)


    If anyone asks..yes I am a 90s kid and I grew up with the first 3 generations...and looking back.....they have not aged well. Personally I think Gen 4 is when Pokemon became good. I know a lot of people have fond memories of the first generation, but...I am sorry I really don't think the first 3 generations are all they are cracked up to be. ESPECIALLY Gen 1 which is ranked #1 on my "Most Overrated Games" list. I am sorry, but most of the designs of Pokemon in in Gen 1, as well as the pathetic villains with Team Rocket, and bland environments.......I am sorry, I am not a fan. I am a Pokemon fan, but the early games are not as great as people say. To me the Physical-Special split, combined with the interesting designs, and diverse environments are why Gen 4 is my favorite. Plus Pokemon like Regigigas, Froslass, and Lucario, all some of my favorites came from here.


    Now listen, if you like Gen 1, fine. I won't stop you. Go right on ahead. But if you ask me it was a bad start, and the later generations are better.

    Man I thought it was bent clearly in Shadow's side and didn't expect Mewtwo to pull out. Like, I figured it was a Pity-Win for the Vegeta fight (crazy outmatched) or the Melee (no stats, but even so, would've been crazy outmatched) but Yeah! I wanted Mewtwo to win, fuck yeah!
    Also (even though you already've written down the next like 50 Deathbattles)
    Yami Yugi vs Natsu Dragneel a.k.a.

    Early 2000's anime vs Twenty Teens Anime (or 90's manga vs 2000's manga whatever lol)
    Sounds random but after doing some rewatching of the YuGiOh show while grinding in some games lately I've realized that it'd be more balanced that you'd think.
    I mean, Yami tanks a God Dragons fire and goes down for like a few seconds. And his mind crush powers could potentially destroy the Dragonslayer. And Natsu's.well. Natsu, no need to say anymore, it'd be baller as fuck
