    Yeah but blowing up a helicopter with a climbing ice pick thing seems like winning with blind luck especially at that distance. would have felt more satisfying if he died while actually fighting

    Honestly Lara would've just shot Nathan in the head when he reached for his rifle.

    Lara fell so far, and grabbed onto a wall, which should've dislocated her arm right?

    Although I agree with the result they did seem to forget that Nate's luck is super Human and even when it seams he ran out its still there. case and point super conveniently placed propane tanks or being found in the middle of nowhere in a far below freezing, near zero viability blizzard (which would cover any tracks) while suffering from a gunshot wound and severe blood loss probably made worse by intensive strain and zero treatment. So him being killed by a random helicopter blade is a big downer,  also props for the witty banter.

    That's some Final Destination-level shit right there. It wasn't Lara's skill that beat Nathan as much as pure coincidence,

    I don't mind the new logo, but wish it was some different colors like the old black and red or some silver to throw back a bit to the old one.  Still enjoy it as usual and for a change it's decently mild.

      Zuko would destroy mustang purely because he has more natural control over his flames whereas Roy can just create the flame and direct them initially.

    It was a cool fight and I don't mind them having themail kill drake even though I like him more, but that was a cop out kill. They could've come up with a much better way to kill him than a stupid access to a helicopter. No saying it wasn't a glorious kill though. I just wish they had been more creative with destroying the helicopter.

    SO AWESOME! 

    I wonder if there will be a Harley Quinn vs Superman, no not the Clark Kent one


    the one who was from that awesome movie Justice League: Gods and Monsters.


    I like that Superman way better, he's kind of got something about him that I like way better than Clark.


    he's kind of attractive, much better than the original Superman......... heart_eyes


    anyway it be nice to see him in a future death battle and fighting whoever


    I wonder if there will be another crossover between death battle and red vs blue in the future?


    I would like to see Sarge fight the Red She-Hulk or at least try to.


      musical_noteall I want to do is see him fight and get his butt handed to him by a giant woman  musical_note


    BRING IN THE SHE-HULKS AND LET THE DEED BE DONE.


    but in all seriousness, this was a awesome episode of death battle 


    I'm glad that they won.

    Sometimes you can just tell who's going to win by the picture before you even watch the video. Lara looking hot as ever but the picture of Nathan was taken on his bad side. Still like Nathans character better but I agree with the results.

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

    A fight like this Lara had a massive advantage because she's been around so long. There are so many different places to take feats from that it'd be difficult for the younger counter-part to compete. Great fight though, and I really liked that neither of them actually killed each other, they were just trying to get the artifact.

    Dang Nate got killed by a helicopter blade but I'm glad Lara won and it's a great way to start a season but Scrooge Mcduck is next and I'm hearing either Wario or Mr. Krabs both come up a few times but personally, I think it's Wario.

    An excellent start to the season! The fight was really good and the research seems pretty accurate. This is a fight I've been looking forward to and I'm glad to finally see it.

    Deoxys (Pokémon) vs Super Skrull (Marvel Comics)

    Rayman vs Klonoa 

    Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo vs Axe Cop

    Jimmy Neutron vs Dexter

    This episode should have been a tie right after Lara fell in the hole because Nathan is the definition of a good guy that will always risk his life to save the bad guy no matter the consequence. Definition of a hero is they will always do the right thing no matter the risk to themselves.

    Pretty great overall. I enjoy that they used Lara's trimmer, more realistic figure instead of making this a lower-resolution battle with Lara's absurd bust size from her first game.

    Anyway, wow. We finally get to see a classic cartoon character enter the ring. Considering the LONG list of absurd things that Scrooge McDuck done, it'll be a great battle no matter who wins.

    Okay, I'm just gonna say it. Nathan lost because he had to take off his Plot Armor to participate in Death Battle.

    • Geodude007

      2 months ago

      Well the issue is that every single character is pretty much going to have that sort of plot armor. It's just sort of built into any action/adventure character that has been in a few games, comics or whatever. 

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

      2 months ago

      @Geodude007 Yes, granted. However, Nathan Drake relies much MUCH more heavily on his Plot Armor than Lara Croft. It was lampshaded multiple times during his analysis as him defying logic and having absurdly good luck. Lara Croft, meanwhile, has a much larger skill set. She's pretty much the yaoi lovechild of Indiana Jones and Batman.

      I know and I have sent in a few matches myself like Noel VS Aigis though it but I don't say that match up though there again. In other words, I don't use it to send the same one over and over again since I do it once with a different fight then the deed is done and I don't repeat that fight I've sent before.

    And... they merged the two Lara's together. -_- 

    Old school Lara already had the edge over Drake, don't add the BS of mixing two different versions of the same character together. Current Lara is a reboot. Pick one or the other, don't make a version that doesn't exist.

      Seriously, would people stop complaining about this? DB composites characters in order to be as objective as possible with what they do. If they were to pick and choose which incarnation to use, I guarantee you, everyone would be complaining that they deliberately left something out to favor the characters they prefer. They do composites, because that way it uses everything, without their choice of incarnation potentially influencing the verdict.

    Shulk vs. Trunks


    The swordsman who can see the future vs. the swordsman from the future. Who knows? Trunks may have killed Freeza, but Shulk has slain a literal god. Maybe this will be another example of just how not-so-overpowered the DBZ characters really are.

    • UsagiVSGoku

      2 months ago

      I think Trunks should fight Chibiusa/Sailor Chibi Moon. It's the daughter of Usagi against the son of Vegeta, in a battle of time traveling children of heroes

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

      2 months ago

      Shulk is remarkably powerful and did indeed kill his world's God, but... Trunks lives in a world where planet-busting is old hat. Even the weakest version of Freeza could blow up planets, and Trunks had no problem dealing with a stronger version of him.


      Shulk's Monado arts grant him a tremendous advantage over most other swordsmen, but eventually raw power overtakes that, especially when your foe's offensive potential is exponentially greater than yours.

    • comicking428

      2 months ago

      Except that the god Shulk defeated is much more powerful than Trunks. Unlike other gods in media, Zanza has the feats to back it up: He not only created the universe several times in the past, but also survived the destruction of it. 


      So that "offensive potential" advantage also goes to Shulk.

      That's what I thought at first. Then I noticed Lara was about to yell at Nathan when he made a dive for it. I don't think it was getting knocked of the pedestal that was the problem. I think it was some mortal laying their grubby mitts on it.

    Can't even be mad; that fight was entertaining! And even though Lara is, like a lot of DB combatants, a composite, the research and gags were plentiful, and I even learned some new things! Season 4 is off to a wonderful start.
