* ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration The Moon Dwellers'' delivers one hell of a showdown between [[Charactes/SuperRobotWarsAlphaGaiden Sanger Zonvolt]], a German samurai fresh from his ''VideoGame/ProjectXZone'' adventures (see above), and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsJudgment Al-Van Lunks]] who is an alien knight. And both men use a {{BFS}} as their primary weapon.

The fans got their wish.

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel II'' has the two protagonists, Rean Schwarzer and [[VideoGame/ZeroNoKiseki Lloyd Bannings]] meeting and fighting against each other during the Divertissment Chapter. Although players are controlling Lloyd and Rixia for this fight, the end result was that both had a stalemate, right before Rean brings out his big guns.

* [[http://www.artleo.com/images/201108/artleo.com_7634.jpg This image]], called ''War of the Worlds'' (Война миров), painted by the Russian contemporary artist Nikolai Kopeikin depicts an epic but gruesome battle between cartoon characters of mostly Western Animation and [[EasternAnimation Russian Animation]]. Not only this picture is an example of the trope but it also stresses the [[FandomRivalry rivalry]] between domestic and foreign animation in Russia.

[[folder:Card Games]]
* ''Anachronism'': A card game that lets you pit various historical (or somewhat historical, like Myth/RobinHood) characters against each other. For more fun, trade the character's goodies around -- give Achilles Beowulf's chain mail and Miyamoto's katana.
* ''Superfight!'' is another card game in this vein, where each player plays a character card and two power/problem cards (one on their own character, another on an opponent's character), then debates over which creation would beat the character of that round's judge in a fight, resulting in match-ups like Mr. T with an assault rifle and riding a unicorn vs. 3 Stephen Hawkings with [[Franchise/StarWars the Force]].
[[/folder]]



* Then there's one in ''[[ComicBook/SupermanBatman Superman/Batman]]'' issue 78, which handled the subject masterfully. The fight happens, but suddenly you see a narration, or rather, two narrations arguing against each other. Eventually, it is shown that two kids, one a fan of Superman and the other a fan of Batman, arguing who wins. After much {{Ass Pull}}s done with each argument, [[spoiler:the two kids agreed that the two are friends and would not fight each other]]. Towards the end, we see Superman and Batman observing the kids. Superman wonders who would win and asks Batman on what he thinks, but Batman just flies away. [[spoiler:Batman believes Superman will win]].

* ''[[http://www.electricferret.com/fights/ The Comic Book Universe Battles]]'', which started in 1997 as a sub-section of a ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess'' fan's Callisto fansite and eventually grew into something all its own. Seen as a friendly rival by the above Grudge match it later stopped proposing scenarios [[http://www.electricferret.com/cbub/ and let users submit, debate and vote on them]]. Currently user voting is down indefinitely but some of the scores are still in the database. In the late 2000's (around 2008 or 2009) the site was revamped to include 2 vs. 2 and 3-way battles as well as reintroducing the ability to submit characters to the database, however unfortunately at the end of 2013, the site's creator and owner stated that the CBUB (and its sister site the Fantasy Powers League) would be shutting down permanently.
* ''Numerous'' websites dedicated solely to what faction from ''Franchise/StarWars'' and ''Franchise/StarTrek'' would lay the ultimate smackdown upon all the others. Website/StarDestroyerDotNet is a particularly (in)famous one, and Website/{{Spacebattles}}.com caters to all kinds of sci-fi matchups but is invariably dominated by ''Trek'' vs. ''Wars'' as well as the occasional just-for-fun curbstomp (the Orcs from ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' vs. modern machine guns, [[SuperiorFirepower carpet bombing from B-52s]], ''an orbiting Imperial Star Destroyer'', and finally, the real kicker, [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 doze udda Orkz]]). Both of these websites more or less grew out of the Usenet newsgroup alt.startrek.vs.starwars.
* "Dream Tournament", a popular series of vote-driven fanfics on the Usenet group rec.games.video.arcade from the mid-'90s, pitted FightingGame characters from different games against each other. The Tournament gave rise to several spinoffs, as well as many {{Fanon}} personality traits for the characters.
* There was an old fanfiction Dream Tournament called the ''FanFic/UltimateVideoRumble'', where some truly memorable fights happened both within and without the arena. Highlights include Haohmaru and Genjuro of ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' fame clashing swords furiously, while everyone who attempts to break their battle gets tossed aside, and dysfunctional organizers and security staff who make Eddy Gordo of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' fame suffer after he got eliminated from the ring. The UVR was a deliberate spiritual successor to the first three Dream Tournaments, continuing many of the fanon events and characterizations from the DT.
* Stefan "Twoflower" Gagne organized a RoundRobin tournament featuring characters from all over anime (and sometimes, beyond) called [[http://www.mtcffultra.com/ Magical Troubleshooting Crossover Fighting Federation ULTRA.]] The various writers used and abused pretty much the entire ProfessionalWrestling trope list, with backstage plots ranging from mere personal power grabs and MindControl to [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Third Impact]] and wresting Godhood from [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Kasumi Tendō]] Herself. The golden rule staving off the inevitable FanBoy [[FlameWar flame wars]] was understood to read, "Anyone, under the right circumstances, can defeat anyone else in a fight." The only systemic exceptions to this idea were made to account for anime-style "weight restrictions." It's worth noting that the story of ''how'' Kasumi became God and several other plot points such as Dark Sakura originated from MTCFF '''Beta''' which was a single-elimination tournament decided by votes rather than by individual authors, with such oddities as [[FusionDance Fusion character]] "Nario" resulting from Naru of ''VideoGame/BattleArenaToshinden'' and Mario of ''Franchise/SuperMarioBrothers'' tying in votes.
* "Hitler continued laughing, then finally said 'Goku! You came here expecting to find a madman, but instead, you found a GOD!' Hitler had become a Super Saiyan." How's that for a CrackFic-style showdown? See it [[http://smallcave.net/goferchan/afgoku01.html right]] [[http://smallcave.net/goferchan/afgoku02.html here]] in all its Not Safe For Sanity glory. By the way, it also [[{{shipping}} ships]] Goku x Anne Frank.
* Ultimate Showdown tournaments are a [[http://board8.wikia.com/wiki/Most_Powerful_Character_Contest common occurrence]] on Website/GameFAQs' "Board 8", allowing users to debate to the most extremely geekish limits possible about who'd win. The arguing can lead to some, hmmmm, very curious victories (Apparently, Film/TheMask can just barely beat [[Anime/DragonBallZ Broly]] with cartoon physics, the most powerful ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' can win left and right merely based on their '''vague backstories''' alone, Voldemort can upset [[LyricalNanoha Nanoha's]] constant nuking of areas and people and [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]] can defeat ComicBook/TheFlash with, uhhh, timey wimey stuff. Or prep time. Or whatever).
* [[http://www.rpgdl.com/ The RPG Duelling League]] is a site dedicating to deciding which VideoGame RPG characters would win in a fight. The site is organized into 6 week long elimination tournaments (refered to as seasons) with four different CharacterTiers (Light, Middle, Heavy, and Godlike). The voters who decide who wins are also ''strongly'' encouraged '''NOT''' to vote according to [[PopularityPower popularity]] or [[GameplayAndStorySegregation plot powers]], but rather comparative in-battle capabilities and performance.
* Sites like Comic Book Resources and Hero Chat have their own (Comic Book Rumbles and It's Clobberin' Time!, respectively), among many, many other websites. They often [[FlameWar don't like each other.]] Most infamous incident was a flame war and board raid between Rumbles and Star Destroyer, after Rumbles determined Borg Cubes can destroy the Death Star. Cue FanWank and board raid.
* [[http://www.factpile.com/ Factpile]] mostly runs on this trope. It has branched out to include other topics, but is still mostly battles between fictional characters. It has also determined the outcome of the page image [[spoiler: Superman easily wins.]]
* ''Fanfic/MakeYourMove'' applies this to ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' with movesets for everything from King K. Rool to Socrates.
* Wiki/DeadliestFictionWiki: using the formula from Deadliest Warrior, but for warriors of any media and franchise, with the warriors chosen by logical debates from the members of the site. It's essentially TheWikiRule for UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny.
* Tor.com: Tor Books' website holds yearly "cage matches" pitting various fantasy characters against each other in a single-elimination tournament, with the characters' creators invited to write how ''they'' think each of their characters' battles would go.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMgnNI0Puxo "Valve World"]], showing ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' Then ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'', ''VideoGame/Dota2'', ''VideoGame/Left4Dead 1 and [[VideoGame/Left4Dead2 2]]'', ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'', ''Deathmatch Classic'', ''Day Of Defeat'', ''VideoGame/AlienSwarm'', ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' and then ending on ''VideoGame/HalfLife1''.
* ''Website/TheOutskirtsBattledome'' exists for people to speculate who would win in a fight between two fictional characters or real-world people.
* ''The Alterverse War'': Kristofer Straub, the author of ''Webcomic/StarslipCrisis'', put togheter ''[[Webcomic/StarslipCrisis Fuseli]]'' vs. the ''[[Webcomic/SchlockMercenary Touch and Go]]'' [[spoiler:the ''Fuseli'' won, but only due to some clever maneuvering]].
* A now-gone discussion on the ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' forums about which of the capital cities in the game would be most defensible against attack. One side said the Undercity (the underground sewers and basements of the destroyed city Lordaeron, the [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Forsaken]] capital) would be the hardest to assault, and someone said they'd just put poison gas into the surface vents.
-->"What kind of gas would work against the undead?"\\

* Don Bradman and Babe Ruth, widely recognized as the greatest ever players in cricket and baseball, respectively, met each other in 1932. While they didn't play against each other, certainly not in any formal capacity, Bradman offered Ruth the chance to try his hand at cricket. Ruth started by trying to bat cricket-style, and struggling to lay bat on ball, before switching to his baseball stance and hitting the Australian bowlers around the park. Ruth also took Bradman to watch a Yankees game, where Bradman surprised his host by spotting a double-play.

* ''Numerous'' websites dedicated solely to what faction from ''Franchise/StarWars'' and ''Franchise/StarTrek'' would lay the ultimate smackdown upon all the others. Website/StarDestroyerDotNet is a particularly (in)famous one, and Website/{{Spacebattles}}.com caters to all kinds of sci-fi matchups but is invariably dominated by ''Trek'' vs. ''Wars'' as well as the occasional just-for-fun curbstomp (the Orcs from ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' vs. modern machine guns, [[SuperiorFirepower carpet bombing from B-52s]], ''an orbiting Imperial Star Destroyer'', and finally, the real kicker, [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} doze udda Orkz]]). Both of these websites more or less grew out of the Usenet newsgroup alt.startrek.vs.starwars.
* "Dream Tournament", a popular series of vote-driven fanfics on the Usenet group rec.games.video.arcade from the mid-'90s, pitted FightingGame characters from different games against each other. The Tournament gave rise to several spinoffs, as well as many {{Fanon}} personality traits for the characters.
** There was an old fanfiction Dream Tournament called the ''FanFic/UltimateVideoRumble'', where some truly memorable fights happened both within and without the arena. Highlights include Haohmaru and Genjuro of ''VideoGame/SamuraiShodown'' fame clashing swords furiously, while everyone who attempts to break their battle gets tossed aside, and dysfunctional organizers and security staff who make Eddy Gordo of ''VideoGame/{{Tekken}}'' fame suffer after he got eliminated from the ring.
*** The UVR was a deliberate spiritual successor to the first three Dream Tournaments, continuing many of the fanon events and characterizations from the DT.
* Stefan "Twoflower" Gagne organized a RoundRobin tournament featuring characters from all over anime (and sometimes, beyond) called [[http://www.mtcffultra.com/ Magical Troubleshooting Crossover Fighting Federation ULTRA.]] The various writers used and abused pretty much the entire ProfessionalWrestling trope list, with backstage plots ranging from mere personal power grabs and MindControl to [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Third Impact]] and wresting Godhood from [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Kasumi Tendo]] Herself.
** The golden rule staving off the inevitable FanBoy [[FlameWar flame wars]] was understood to read, "Anyone, under the right circumstances, can defeat anyone else in a fight." The only systemic exceptions to this idea were made to account for anime-style "weight restrictions."
** It's worth noting that the story of ''how'' Kasumi became God and several other plot points such as Dark Sakura originated from MTCFF '''Beta''' which was a single-elimination tournament decided by votes rather than by individual authors, with such oddities as [[FusionDance Fusion character]] "Nario" resulting from Naru of ''VideoGame/BattleArenaToshinden'' and Mario of ''Franchise/SuperMarioBrothers'' tying in votes.

By the way, it also [[{{shipping}} ships]] Goku x Anne Frank.
* Ultimate Showdown tournaments are a [[http://board8.wikia.com/wiki/Most_Powerful_Character_Contest common occurrence]] on Website/GameFAQs' "Board 8", allowing users to debate to the most extremely geekish limits possible about who'd win. The arguing can lead to some, hmmmm, very curious victories (Apparently, Film/TheMask can just barely beat [[Anime/DragonBallZ Broly]] with cartoon physics, the most powerful ''VideoGame/{{Darkstalkers}}'' can win left and right merely based on their '''vague backstories''' alone, Voldemort can upset [[LyricalNanoha Nanoha's]] constant nuking of areas and people and [[Series/DoctorWho the Doctor]] can defeat ComicBook/TheFlash with, uhhh, timey wimey stuff. Or prep time. Or whatever).



* [[http://www.rpgdl.com/ The RPG Duelling League]] is a site dedicating to deciding which VideoGame RPG characters would win in a fight. The site is organized into 6 week long elimination tournaments (refered to as seasons) with four different CharacterTiers (Light, Middle, Heavy, and Godlike). The voters who decide who wins are also ''strongly'' encouraged '''NOT''' to vote according to [[PopularityPower popularity]] or [[GameplayAndStorySegregation plot powers]], but rather comparative in-battle capabilities and performance.

* ScrewAttack's ''WebAnimation/DeathBattle'': sets characters up against each other as well, from [[StarWars Boba Fett]] vs. [[{{Metroid}} Samus Aran]] to [[VideoGame/FinalFight Mike Haggar]] vs. [[StreetFighter Zangief]] to [[{{Transformers}} Starscream]] vs. [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Rainbow Dash]]. Notably not decided by votes, but by a look at each side's actual capabilities and extrapolating based on that.
** And they've done one for [[Anime/DragonBallZ Goku]] and Franchise/{{Superman}}. [[spoiler:Superman won.]] Boomstick, one of the show's hosts, was utterly euphoric when the fight finished because it meant everybody would finally stop asking them to do it. Of course, a LOT of people were unhappy with the result, so Death Battle did their first and so far only re-match. Same result. They then laid down very clearly why they were convinced that the fight would never turn out any other way, to curtail this happening again.
** The 35th match was Franchise/{{Godzilla}} vs Franchise/{{Gamera}}. You may [[{{Squee}} squeal]] now. [[spoiler:Godzilla won.]]
** The 44th match was Creator/ChuckNorris vs Advertising/SegataSanshiro. You may [[AwesomenessIsAForce faint]] and/or [[BigYes orgasm]] now. [[spoiler:[[RealityBreakingParadox They destroyed the universe in a]] '''tie''']].
* Dark Horse Comics asked who would win; [[Webcomic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja Dr McNinja]], or [[VideoGame/TeamFortress2 Saxton Hale]]? At the time of this edit, votes are [[http://www.darkhorse.com/Blog/686/dark-horse-vs-dr-mcninja-vs-saxton-hale still being accepted]]. Each character asked fans to vote for them on their [[http://drmcninja.com/ respective]] [[http://www.teamfortress.com/ websites]].
** Votes are already done. Winner: [[spoiler:Saxton Hale.]]
* Wiki/DeadliestFictionWiki: using the formula from Deadliest Warrior, but for warriors of any media and franchise, with the warriors chosen by logical debates from the members of the site. It's essentially TheWikiRule for UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny.
* Tor.com: Tor Books' website holds yearly "cage matches" pitting various fantasy characters against each other in a single-elimination tournament, with the characters' creators invited to write how ''they'' think each of their characters' battles would go.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMgnNI0Puxo "Valve World"]], showing ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' Then ''VideoGame/CounterStrike'', ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'', ''VideoGame/Left4Dead 1 and [[VideoGame/Left4Dead2 2]]'', ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'', ''Deathmatch Classic'', ''Day Of Defeat'', ''VideoGame/AlienSwarm'', ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' and then ending on ''VideoGame/HalfLife1''.
* ''Website/TheOutskirtsBattledome'' exists for people to speculate who would win in a fight between two fictional characters or real-world people.
* ''The Alterverse War'':Kristofer Straub, the author of ''Webcomic/StarslipCrisis'', put togheter ''[[Webcomic/StarslipCrisis Fuseli]]'' vs. the ''[[Webcomic/SchlockMercenary Touch and Go]]'' [[spoiler:the ''Fuseli'' won, but only due to some clever maneuvering]].



* While this is still upcoming, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvpHThakNwU When Heroes Meet Champions]] is hyped to be an UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny featuring characters from the two MultiplayerOnlineBattleArena juggernauts, as the title suggested: ''VideoGame/{{Dota 2}}'' and ''VideoGame/LeagueOfLegends''. Already in the teaser we've seen possible battles of [[AnAxeToGrind Axe vs Darius]], [[{{Samurai}} Juggernaut vs Master Yi]], [[ActionGirl Legion Commander vs Katarina]], [[WhenTreesAttack Treant Protector vs Maokai]] and [[MegatonPunch Tusk vs Vi]].
* Machinima.com has ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Wasteland Battles'', pitting characters and enemies from ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' and ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' against each other, and with the help of mods, even characters like [[StarWars Darth Vader]]. Not that it matters, because [[CurbStompBattle Liberty Prime]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjTVhj4gHCE beats everything.]]

* ''MinuteMatchUps'' does this with superheroes on both sides of the DC/Marvel divide, using their recent media portrayal, although the first episode actually matched up Deadpool from the [[Film/{{Deadpool}} upcoming movie]] and Deadpool as Weapon XI from ''Film/XMenOriginsWolverine'' ([[spoiler:the former won]]). The other two episodes match up Green Arrow vs. Hawkeye ([[spoiler:Green Arrow put two arrows into Hawkeyes head]]) and the Flash vs. Quicksilver ([[spoiler:the Flash vaporized Quicksilver with "supersonic punch, baby, yeah!"]]).

* [[http://www.artleo.com/images/201108/artleo.com_7634.jpg This image]], called ''War of the Worlds'' (Война миров), painted by the Russian contemporary artist Nikolai Kopeikin depicts an epic but gruesome battle between cartoon characters of mostly Western Animation and [[EasternAnimation Russian Animation]]. Not only this picture is an example of the trope but it also stresses the [[FandomRivalry rivalry]] between domestic and foreign animation in Russia.
* Don Bradman and Babe Ruth, widely recognised as the greatest ever players in cricket and baseball, respectively, met each other in 1932. While they didn't play against each other, certainly not in any formal capacity, Bradman offered Ruth the chance to try his hand at cricket. Ruth started by trying to bat cricket-style, and struggling to lay bat on ball, before switching to his baseball stance and hitting the Australian bowlers around the park. Ruth also took Bradman to watch a Yankees game, where Bradman surprised his host by spotting a double-play.
* Yalta, 1942. [[WinstonChurchill Winston "Brandy for Breakfast" Churchill]] and [[JosefStalin Josef "Steel Liver" Stalin]] have what is, in effect, [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22623251 a drinking contest]]. They go at it until three o'clock in the morning, but by one o'clock Churchill, suffering a "slight headache", has switched to wine. At which point Stalin presumably called him a pussy, fist-bumped Molotov, and cracked another bottle of vodka.

* A now-gone discussion on the VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft forums about which of the capital cities in the game would be most defensible against attack. One side said the Undercity (the underground sewers and basements of the destroyed city Lordaeron, the [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Forsaken]] capital) would be the hardest to assault, and someone said they'd just put poison gas into the surface vents.
--> "What kind of gas would work against the undead?"
--> "Febreeze."
--> "...well played, sir."
* The ''Franchise/AlienVsPredator'' franchise is entirely devoted to this trope.
