    The more I watch the more it hits me. I don't like how every Death Battle has to have a bloody end.

    Yes, it's a fight to the death. But that doesn't mean it has to be a decapitation or complete obliteration. This fight in particular could have ended with someone just falling down and not getting back up or even the final blow snapping a neck.

    • BlackMamba679

      4 weeks ago

      Well of course it does. If they just fall down then they might as well call it Street fighter.   Oh and just FYI Dead Pool vs. Pinky Pie doesn't end that way.

      Alucard from Hellsing would basically win any fight. He is literally god by the end of the series (Ultimate) With Schrodinger powers Even IF Dio could beat him. He (at the same time) Didn't beat him. Because he was/n't there. Yep. He's 100% broken.

    Damn that was a brutal finisher but it made up for Glacius's lost against Sub-Zero a few episodes ago but Street Fighter still has the biggest losing streak on record but awesome episode but for next time, out of all the opponents for The Shredder to fight, I never thought of Silver Samurai being one of them but to be honest, I'm not at all familiar with Silver Samurai so the next fight could be interesting.

    Y'know, while there are some death battles that rely on-the top abilities and gear, it was nice to see a fight that was more grounded in reality. Amazing animation by Torrian, I can't wait to see what he cooks up next!

  • Bismuth73 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

    Holy CRAP. I was skeptical of the conceot because of how little I know about these characters, but the fight... my God, the fight. The fight scene was up there with some of SCREWATTACK's best: Goku vs. Superman, Dante vs. Bayonetta, Solid Snake vs. Sam Fisher, Wolverine vs. Raiden, Power Rangers vs. Voltron, and now Bolrog vs. T.J. Combo.

    In other words, this goes down in history as one of the best Death Battles to date.

    But a lot of what made this battle so great is how deserved the victory is. Bolrog is the epitome of a cocky, conceited, undeserving prick. And his overblow physique and in-game story fits with this image.

    T.J. Combo, meanwhile, represents an inspiring image of hard work, and learning that cheaters never prosper. His hard work and dedication to boxing are what every success story is made of. Even T.J.'s more realistic physique fits with this image.

    So we have the unrealistic, cheating, unlikable villain vs. relatable, dedicated inspiring hero in brutal fist fight. Frankly, seeing T.J. beat the f*** snot out of Bolrog was extremely cathartic. And the fact that the rundown admitted that they had to decide based on ACTUAL BOXING RESEARCH was a fitting cherry on top.


    So, overall, I think this has been the best MATCH-UP in the history of Death Battle. Maybe not the all-around-best episode, but certainly up there with some of the best, But the match-up, in its conception, result and outcome, is by far the best so far.

    There is only one complaint I have. The clipping, my god the clipping. Seriously, take a shot every time the characters skin clips through their clothing. Still great. I was hyped to see one of my most requested battles happen and glad to see I wasn't disappointed.

    ive watched every deathbattles but rarely do i immediately rewatch a deathbattle several times. This is definitely up there as one of my favorite episodes. The back and forth was perfect. The fact that  i had no idea who was going to win even before the fight started made the fight great.

    Spoiler free comment

    Ok...I've been really hard on Death Battle, lately. I have been really disappointed in some of their logic and research, in more recent fights. I didn't even watch Lucario vs Renamon, because it seemed predictable.

    However, this one? THIS FUCKING FIGHT? This was glorious. And no, it's not because the character I liked better won. I like both characters a lot. Neither are my favorite character from their respective series, but both are great, and I wouldn't be upset at either one losing, so long as the reasoning behind it was solid, and boy was it!

    How long has it been since the combatants' fighting styles were the focus of the results? It's so refreshing! Not some random, one-time, absurd feat that isn't always even canon (looking at you, Test Your Might). These characters physical feats were very similar, so for once, we don't have either a one-sided match or a "Well, they were pretty even, but this character had one specific advantage". I get it, not every fight can be interesting and balanced. Sometimes, what the fans want isn't what we were all expecting. But when we get a fight that is so close that we actually have to take real boxing theory into account, it makes the best kind of episode.

    THIS is the Death Battle I love. This was awesome, and I'm hoping more episodes can impress me as much as this one.

    rock -> Balrog vs TJ Combo

    scissors -> Shredder vs Silver Samurai

    paper -> magic?

    This next fight I am interested in I don't like seeing Marvel, Dc, and Street fighter characters in death battles now cause they've played them to death(ha). But this one I like cause Silver Samurai kind of a less seen character. I am hoping to see characters from different series that haven't been seen.(Maybe Persona, Kill la Kill) p.s Please no more Rwby characters I love the series but their abilities might be exaggerated again.

    Why do you show footage of Mike Tyson when talking about sluggers? Mike Tyson was a swarmer/in-fighter. He doesn't really trade blows, he uses peek-a-boo style to defend himself and aggressively attack. George Foreman is probably the most famous slugger.

      A Marvel Comics Character. If you saw The Wolverine you saw a version. He's kind of a hero/villain. I don't know him well but I do know he was a member of the Big Hero 6 comic team.

      The Silver Samurai is a Marvel Comics villain and common enemy of Wolverine. He's a mutant with the power to generate tachyon fields. He most commonly surrounds his sword with these fields, allowing it to cut through near anything, save for adamantium and other substances of equal or greater resilience.


      The one that's in the Big Hero 6 comic is Kenuichio Harada, the illegitimate son of the original Silver Samurai. He utilizes a super-suit with energy swords.


      The movie version is basically just a big suit of power-armor similar to Kenuichio's suit, minus Kenuichio. It's kind of cool and kind of stupid.

    I'm going to suggest some... Obscure characters/matchups for a Death Battle. Who knows? - Maybe the DB Curse will kick in to give them some new media for them.


    • Dinobot (Beast Wars) vs. Zuko (AtLA) - Battle between those small sparks of light in the darkness that came from an unexpected source who fight with honor, and took on some fighters that were from the side they were banished from!

    • Amaterasu (Okami) vs. Red XIII (FF VII) - Dogs fighting for nature, USING nature. Mystical God vs. Powerful Experimentation? - Hell yeah.

    • Cyrax (Mortal Kombat) vs. Mega Man X - Robotic beings of incredible power that (in all honesty) should've been a battle earlier.

    • Danny Phantom (Danny Phantom) vs. Jake Long (ADJL) - Teenage heroes with transformations that take after Spider-Man's "Wake up, go to school, Save the world." life style? - Sign me up.


    Characters/Franchises that I don't have a good matchup idea for, but deserve some recognition:

    Storm Hawks

    Jason Voorhees

    Predator

    Xenomorph

    Azula

    Widowmaker

    Beast Wars/Beast Machines

    The Mystery Dungeon Games/Pokémon Ranger games.
