Curb Stomp Battle:
: Goblins Thaco is being pursued in the sewers by Dellyn Goblinslayer, and he thinks, just because he's a Monk he can't beat him.
After regaining his courage after being shot by Dellyn, he catches an arrow in mid air, snaps it, breaks a pipe behind Dellyn and kicks him onto it, impaling him then he gives an epic Shut Up, Hannibal! to Dellyn, shattering his mind by calling him a human he fought in his early adventuring career...a random encounter. : Vaarsuvius gives one of these to The Order of the Stick the ancient black dragon after accepting the soul splice. Comics # 652 and # 653 pull a complete reversal: Vaarsuvius decides to take the fight directly to the
Big Bad Xykon with the soul splice's "Ultimate Arcane Power". Several rounds later, Xykon manages to literally beat the power out of Vaarsuvius. The fight between Roy and Xykon is a straighter example.
O-Chul vs. Redcloak. The paladin takes the ~17th level cleric's Disintegrate without blinking and proceeds to Smite Evil Redcloak's eye with a blunt metal bar that he ripped from his cage.
Lampshaded in this strip.
Sluggy Freelance Narrator:
going to dedicate a full Sunday comic to the epic battle, but it's
turkey! Come on
Sillice vs. Yaeminira/Vy'chriel in Drowtales goes like this. It's pretty obvious that Yaeminira never had a chance, and extra points for the implied Punctuated Pounding Sillice gives Yaeminira:
Sillice Focus, Will, Discipline, Loyalty!
In Circus Knights, there's a lot of build-up to how Domino and Talon have to take down a "Rook Level" Nightmare. The Nightmare reveals its true form, the battle begins, and what do we get? Talon and Domino impaling the souls off screen, Talon distracting it with shadow dolls, and then Domino
cuts the Nightmare in half with something that basically amounts to a magical piece of paper In , there is the last battle between the Fans and the FIB. What should have been a curb-stomp battle the other way around is reversed when a literal Deus Ex Machina turns it into one of the most one-sided battles ever, resulting in this: Fans! http://www.faans.com/index.php?p=1290
If the stories are true, Liu Feng from did nothing else. He described his experience as "I don't know what it's like to hit a man twice."
How I Killed Your Master has Homestuck lots of these. Let's enumerate, shall we?
Dave finally fights his Bro after being gaslighted by his creepy puppet collection for ages. He completely gets his ass kicked . with a puppet .
Twice Dave still manages to maintain his Bad Ass status after verbally curbstomping Tavros (aka adiosToreador) in a reverse-trolling of epic proportions later in the series. (Technically in a flashback, but whatever.)
The showdown between Vriska, Gamzee and Eridan. The winner? None of them. Kanaya turns up in all her .
rainbow-drinker glory and wipes the floor with all three The long awaited battle between Vriska and Tavros. Vriska slaps Tavros in the face then runs him through with his own lance.
After defeating a whole bridge full of Imps, you'd think Vriska would be strong enough to fight Aradia, right? You'd be wrong.
Anyone versus - Bro, Davesprite, John, Rose, Dave, Bec Noir a - ends with them getting crushed. The only exceptions so far have been thousand Aradiabots God-tier Vriska rolling straight 8s on her dice (which .
didn't count anyway because it was in a doomed timeline) and Prospitian Monarch, who has the exact same powers as Jack and is really pissed to boot Jake fights Dirk's training robot. The fight includes the robot slicing bullets in half in midair, performing a rocket-assisted suplex, and punching him so hard that his glasses fly off taking his eyes with them.
Dirk's rap-battle with Squarewave can hardly even be called a battle, as it is finished in only two attacks (by the same party) and the first didn't do anything. It's not even clear when Squarewave was supposed to get a chance to act.
has a Curb Stomp battle during the defense of Mechanicsburg. And immediatly after as well, both performed by Gilgamesh Wulfenbach. We never knew he had it in him... oh wait, yes we did, just nobody else did.
Girl Genius They can be found here and here respectively.
Gil: "I am Gilgamesh Wulfenbach, Son of Klaus. I will say this only once, leave now, or die."
Just to be clear... he wasn't joking.
Higgs also gets one in versus Zola here ◊
Jäger generals are even more dangerous than they look. Good thing (for them), there's always someone willing to learn this the hard way.
has Radd deal one to Gnarl late in the comic, to show Gnarl how he's Kid Radd bettered himself while Gnarl has been stuck as a slave to his programming.
In , Gus Gunthrie's pals prepare to beat the tar out of Nip for being the distraction before they give Bandit Ringtail an after-boxing match curbstomping. Who should show up but a bunch of very ticked-off lady wrestlers Nip and Tuck ... who are friends of Nip Todd... Laser-Guided Karma in 3... 2... 1...
There have been a few in . The narrator has been kind enough to provide the perfect metaphor for Schlock Mercenary a fully operational O'Benn superfortress versus light craft and teams from two of the best mercenary units in the galaxy versus undertrained, half-equipped, confused, and dispersed garrison troops.
Flipside. Bernadette versus Voulger. Voulger stood no chance.
Played straight in Dominic Deegan with Nimmel versus the Werewolves.
: Kefka's return is met with utter horror... until they find out that Captain SNES: The Game Masta he's just as powerful as the last time they met. Which isn't much compared to the FFVI's crew's over-leveled asses. Kefka is beaten a half-dozen times in under ten seconds.
Shelly of once got in a bar fight. As the fight started, she held up her drink and dropped it. After winning, Wapsi Square she still had enough time to catch it.
In , Exterminatus Now An epic clash of titans -- more fit to be commemorated in a limerick than an epic, actually.
In , Bob and George Megaman vs. the Yellow Demon.
, there are several awesome ones.
Pacificators Yuma almost got Muneca with a bomb. He soon wished that he did.
Muneca, Larima, and Taffe against a boat. The boat never stood a chance.
The same ladies, along with Cinna, and then caught a cannonball at the ironclad warship which had fired at them.
flung it back In a Big Damn Heroes moment, Taffe came to Daryl's recuse by kicking the Shadow Sleuth in the face. Immediately, Cinna and Kathy followed that up with soundblasters... But, oh no, that wasn't the end of it. Muneca then right on his ears. and proceed to yanked him above her head
threw him through the dock. Those last three bullet points (boat, cannonball, Shadow Sleuth)? They all happened within a span of forty-three pages. (Out of thirty-three chapters with a total of, what, eight hundred pages.)
Duane's fight with the rogue slavers in . Unsounded For the sake of fairness, he opts to Curb Stomp and Cherry Tap at the same time; instead of obliterating them with his powerful spell-slinging abilities, he beats one of them up with his staff while smacking the other around with his own spells. They only manage to land one insignificant hit on him.
The Imperial Legion's invasion of Ziragalen in . A more brutal Second Empire Defensive Feint Trap has never been seen - complete annihilation of all Legion assault teams and near-eradication of retreating defensive teams. It helps their commander is an irredeemable General Failure and that they have been bred to eradicate independent thinking. EXTERMINATE!
In we got Roommates Jareth vs. Erlkönig, the (partially off panel) Cast vs. Zombies fight and "Odile" vs. Sarah (Poor Zombies, Jareth and "Odile" who went down with one hit from the Frying Pan of Doom).
From we get a lot of these. Dragon Ball Multiverse Vegeta vs alternate Vegeta who never left their home planet. Goku vs Android 17. Bra vs Bojack's henchwoman. Cell vs Bojack.
In , Kreedor's Dubious Company honor guard routinely beatdown the pirates, much to Tiren's chagrin. Once Kreedor decides to execute Sal, the fights become more even.
In , this is ( Basic Instructions reportedly) the result every time the superhero Rocket Hat takes on the Moon Men and their emperor.
This comic has a dragon chasing Fluttershy. One of these ensues when Discord pulls a
Big Damn Heroes and kicks the dragon's tail. From , the Terra "fight" between Agrippa Varus and Catella Myrha. Catella moves in fast and Agrippa almost contemptuously slaps the knife out of her hand and Neck Lifts her. Certainly explains why she fled rather than face him a couple chapters ago.
