    He-Man vs. Lion-O 


He-man: "Next time, you might try knocking first."
Voiced by: Edwyn Tiong

Master of The Universe

Note: For information on Cringer/Battlecat, see the "Misc. characters" folder.

  • Ambiguously Gay: In the intro of the episode, Wiz states that both He-Man and Lion-O are "Goofy, muscular heroes of questionable preference." When he sees that Lion-O's Sword of Omens can extend, he lets out a suggestive "Ooh!~"
  • Amplifier Artifact: His Korodite battle harness increases his strength ten-fold.
  • And Knowing Is Half the Battle: He-Man ends his episode with a message about neutering pets.
    • "Rarr! I miss my balls!"
  • Background Music Override: Constantly in the fight whenever he takes the lead. You are going to hear "He-Man!" several times. One time is right after Lion-O obliterates the mountain He-Man intended to crush him with, He-Man comes charging at Lion-O. The music audibly halts for a solid second before, "He-Man!" booms out.
  • Barrier Warrior: The Power Sword can deflect projectiles. This in turn renders all of the Sword of Omens' projectile beams useless.
  • Battle Cry: "By the power of Greyskull... IIII HAVE THE POWEEEEEERRRRRR!"
  • Beware the Silly Ones: He's pretty goofy and his feats are rather absurd. (Pushing a moon? Digging to the center of the earth with a stalactite?) However, this also means he's super powerful.
  • Blow You Away: Can create tornadoes.
  • Bond One-Liner: "Looks like curiosity killed THIS CAT!"
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: He's the Trope Namer. Sure enough, he calls upon Castle Grayskull's power at the beginning of the simulation to transform and "go do something normally perceived as impossible." Then Lion-O shows up.
  • Composite Character: Intentionally based on his appearances in both the He-Man cartoons and comics, not to mention his crossover appearances with Superman.
  • Cool Sword: The Power Sword is the source of He-Man's unlimited strength and superhuman abilities, along with Battle Cat's powers. It is indestructible, uses magic and can be thrown like a boomerang.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He invokes this as Prince Adam, his bumbling rich kid persona.
  • DePower: If he takes enough damage, he can revert to his normal human form.
  • Foreshadowing: Immediately before the Death Battle proper begins, the first He-Man preview clip shows him crushing something in his hands.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: When he's not using the Power Sword or any other weapon, He-Man often resorts to using his fists in combat. He ends up smashing Lion-O's sword into pieces this way.
  • Heroic Build: Big and buff; a contrast to his scrawnier prince form.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Found and adopted a stray and cowardly kitten nowadays known as Cringer/Battlecat but averted in the battle and the post-battle segment. Adam cheerfully transforms Cringer, despite his cries of pain, punches him into the sky, and gives a PSA on spaying and neutering your cats while Cringer laments his...yup.
  • Leitmotif: Main Theme (instrumental version), Snake Mountain Theme, Run Orko from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983) and HE-MAN & SHE-RA Orchestral themes medley by OminousVoice play during his analysis. Cringer gets Orko's Theme from the He-Man cartoon during his rundown.
  • Lightning Bruiser: In addition to being the Most Powerful Man in the Universe, he can run fast enough to create a tornado via his slipstream when going in a circle.
  • Made of Indestructium: The Power Sword cannot be destroyed. Unlike the Sword of Omens, giving He-Man a significant edge over Lion-O.
  • Made of Iron: Lion-O slashes him across the stomach, blasts him to the horizon, and stabs him in the shoulder, but he shrugs it off.
  • Merchandise-Driven: Wizard makes it pretty clear that his series was created to sell truckloads of toys.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Can take just about anything thrown at him including the Eye of Thundera's magic.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: In his day-to-day life, the superhuman He-Man is the foolish prince of Eternia, Adam. He uses this facade to prevent others from finding his secret identity.
  • Pungeon Master: As expected from a cartoon hero from the 80s.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: As Prince Adam, wears a pink shirt and purple pants.
  • Stripperiffic: Wears nothing but a power amplifying harness and a pair of spandex shorts. Both hosts waste little time in mocking this.
  • Super Breath: It can blow away smoke.
  • Super Empowering: Was given "fabulous secret powers" by the Sorceress of Castle Greyskull.
  • Super Speed: He can run in circles fast enough to create a tornado. This enables him to keep up with Lion-O's own superhuman speed and agility.
  • Super Strength: Strong enough to effortlessly move the moon with his bare hands! In the fight, he tosses A freaking mountain at Lion-O! In a crossover comic, he's portrayed as even being strong enough to trade blows with Superman (the guy who can casually pull and push planets). He's more than strong enough to destroy the Sword of Omens, since Tug-Mug, a far weaker character than He-Man, managed to do so.
  • Technical Pacifist: He prefers to settle disputes with conversation and reasoning, not through violence. However, that doesn't mean he won't kick ass if he needs to. After incapacitating Lion-O, He-Man begins to walk off, perfectly content with letting him live... but then the Eye of Thundera attacks, forcing him to crush it, killing Lion-O (and the remaining ThunderCats).
  • Theme Music Power-Up: Whenever he's winning in the fight, expect "He-Man!" to heroically erupt often interrupting Lion-Os themes.
  • Throwing Your Sword Always Works: This is one of her preferred ways of using the Power Sword, but at one point in the fight this trope is subverted. After throwing his sword, Lion-O uses a tractor beam to plant it into the ground.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He-Man just wanted to fend off Lion-O, but in doing so, he crushed the Eye Of Thundera, which kept the Thunderan race alive.
  • Victoria's Secret Compartment: Keeps his bolas stored in his spandex shorts. Boomstick is appropriately disturbed.


Lion-O: "Sword of Omens, give me power beyond power! Hooooooooo!"
Voiced by: Xander Mobus

Lord of The Thundercats

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: It can easily cut through stone and most metals. Also draws blood from the super-durable He-Man.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Besides what Wizard said in the beginning, he calls He-Man a "Muscular fiend."
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's the most skilled of the Thundercats and is naturally the leader.
  • Barrier Warrior: His sword can create force fields to defend himself with.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: Boomstick calls it "Lazy writing." Even Wiz is caught off-guard by this feat.
  • Battle Cry: "Thunder...Thunder...ThunderCats! Hoooooooooo!"
  • Blinding Bangs: His sprite's hair is a bit too long.
  • Breakable Weapons: Unlike the Power Sword, the Sword of Omens is not unbreakable. The super-strong He-Man crushes both the sword and the Eye of Thundera gem into powder.
  • The Beastmaster: He has power over felines. At the beginning of the fight, he causes Battlecat to turn on He-Man, but He-Man just knocks him into orbit to keep him out of the fight.
  • Cat Folk: The Thunderian race posses cat-like speed and tread.
  • Composite Character: Takes up feats and traits from the original ThunderCats (1985) cartoon and comics. Like He-Man, his crossover with Superman is also taken accounted for.
  • Cool Sword: The Sword of Omens can change size, "Shoot lasers!", and grant him Sight Beyond Sight.
  • Flight: By holding onto the Sword of Omens, Lion-O can fly.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: The Claw Shield can shoot out grappling hooks to ensnare foes. However, one muscle flex is all He-man needs to break free.
  • Heroic Build: Similar to He-Man.
  • Hot-Blooded: Lion-O is extremely passionate and easily excited. This attitude is what starts the fight, thinking Cringer was being hurt.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Thundrainium. In the fight, it's absent but Lion-O still loses.
  • Leitmotif: Instrumental, ThunderTank Theme, Panthro's Theme, Tygra' Theme, Main theme (Casual) and Thundera from Thundercats 1985 and ThunderCats - Orchestral Theme Medley by OminousVoice play furing his analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Super Strength plus cat-like agility equals this. It's not the same Superman-like levels as He-Man.
  • Living Weapon: The Eye of Thundera is alive, and when Lion-O gets crushed by He-Man, it lets out an inhuman screech as it blasts He-Man with laser beams.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: His glove-like Claw Shield is used to block attacks.
  • Made of Iron: Can survive boiling water, molten lava, and the vacuum of space. Wiz is dumbfounded by that last one. The fight itself has him survive hits from He-Man because of this.
  • Manchild: Or "mankitten", as described by Wizard. He was 13 years old before he entered the suspension capsule, and while he physically ages 10 years, he still has the mentality of a kid. As such, he had to grow up on the battlefield.
  • Off-Model: His sprite's hair is a bit too long. It gives him Blinding Bangs.
  • Oh, Crap!: His reaction after seeing He-Man lift and then throw a mountain at him.
    "By Thundera!"
  • Playing with Fire: The Sword of Omens can shoot flames.
  • Plot-Relevant Age-Up: Due to a stasis pod malfunction, Lion-O was the only one of the Thundercats to physically age.
  • Power Crystal: The Eye of Thundara not only empowers the Sword of Omens, but it also contains the life source of the Thundercats. If it is destroyed, then all the Thundercats die with it.
  • Psychic Powers: "Sword of Omens, give me sight beyond sight!"
  • Pungeon Master: Again, he's an 80s cartoon hero. Cheesy puns are their specialty.
  • Shock and Awe: The Sword of Omens can shoot lightning.
  • Smoke Out: One of the Claw Shield's abilities. He-Man simply blows the smoke away.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Explosive beams can be emitted from the Sword of Omens.
  • Summon to Hand: He calls the Sword of Omens back to his hand when He-Man disarms him.
  • Superman Substitute: Just like the man of Steel, he escaped his exploding home planet as a child, possesses super strength, and is weak to a certain space rock.
  • Super Senses: Similar to cats, Thundarians have a better sense of smell, hearing, and sight than a normal human.
  • Super Strength: Not on the same insane level as He-Man's, but the guy is capable of holding down a spaceship attempting escape velocity. The Sword of Omens further boosts his strength.
  • Sword Beam: See, Shock and Awe, Playing with Fire, Stuff Blowing Up and Tractor Beam. The analysis caption says this trope verbatim.
  • This Cannot Be!: He says, "That's impossible!" when He-Man lifts a mountain and then "That's not possible!" when He-Man shatters the Sword of Omens.
  • Tractor Beam: The Sword of Omens is capable of doing this.
  • True Sight: The Sword of Omens grants Lion-O to see the current event unfold anywhere in the world. In the fight, he uses this to locate He-Man after he hears Cringer yelling in pain. He uses it again to see He-Man toss a mountain at him after blasting him away with a sword beam.
  • Wrecked Weapon: He-Man destroys both the Sword of Omens and the Eye of Thundera. Unfortunately, the Eye of Thundera is the source of life for ThunderCats, so its destruction kills Lion-O.

    Shao Kahn vs. M. Bison 

Shao Kahn

Shao Kahn: "I am Shao Kahn, conqueror of worlds! You will taste no victory."

The Konqueror

  • The Ageless: Tens of thousands of years old and showing no signs of stopping. Wiz and Boomstick wrongly say that, like Shang Tsung, this comes from his ability to steal souls, but in Mortal Kombat canon it is implied that Kahn is just flat-out immortal by nature; soul-stealing is just his hobby. His long lifespan being used to capture all those souls and conquer worlds gives him much more experience than M. Bison, winning him the match.
  • Animorphism: He can transform into a multi-headed dragon in the film series, but this weirds out the hosts.
  • The Announcer: For the first season of Death Battle, the voice clip of "FIGHT!" at the beginning of every duel was none other than his. His appearance as a contestant early on in season 2 is likely the reason why the voice clip was changed.
  • Badass Baritone: To quote Boomstick, he is the "owner of one of the most badass voices ever- excluding yours truly, of course!"
  • Bad Boss: After Bison appears and kills one of his Tarkatan guards, Shao Kahn leaps in to confront him and Goomba Stomps the adjacent guard.
  • Barrier Warrior: His Emperor's Shield can deflect projectiles back at his opponent. Doesn't play a huge role in the fight as Bison doesn't make heavy use of projectiles.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Originally was this with Onaga. However, Kahn does not like sharing power and he poisoned him to rule Outworld on his own.
  • The Caligula: He's the cruel ruler of Outworld, who indiscriminately conquers other realms and slaughters its citizens.
  • Canon Discontinuity: His dragon form is briefly touched upon for a gag, but is ignored as having "never happened" by the hosts.
  • Composite Character: Of the game, cartoon, and comic book versions of the character.
  • Cool Sword: The Sword of Shao Kahn From "That crappy TV show"... is not analyzed nor makes an appearance in the fight.
  • Drop the Hammer: The Wrath Hammer, in which he obliterates foes with a swing with his superhuman strength.
  • Energy Weapon: Light Spear.
  • Evil Laugh: Constantly and the first time he does it, it left him wide open for bison to get a good combo on him.
  • Evil Overlord: Supreme ruler of Outworld; not a nice guy.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: The infamous "Finish Him" from the series? That's this guy saying it.
  • Flight: After absorbing Bison's soul.
  • For the Evulz: Bison kills one of Kahn's Tarkata soldiers. Kahn does the same thing.
  • Goomba Stomp: Besides the guard mentioned above, he also does this to pin Bison down and whale on him with his hammer.
  • Groin Attack: If you look closely, Kahn's first blow to Bison is a punch right to Bison's nads.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: His energy spears are just as deadly as the real thing.
  • I Shall Taunt You: Noted as one of Kahn's biggest weaknesses that he taunts mid-match instead of pummeling his enemy. In the fight, Bison teleports away, making Kahn think that he retreating. But as Shao Kahn gloats, Bison ambushes him from behind.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Well-versed in magic and martial arts, his fighting style is based around using both simultaneously.
  • Leitmotif: Soul Chamber, Main Menu, Shao Kahn's Throne Room, The Tower, The Graveyard, and The Temple from Mortal Kombat 9 play during his analysis.
  • Mighty Glacier: Bison may be faster, but Shao Kahn can dish out a whole lot of pain. Also, while still somewhat mortal, Shao Kahn has survived thousands of years fighting in Mortal Kombat for good reason. Probably the reason why he wears so little armor is that Kahn's body is so powerful anyways. He even recovered from a fiery punch from Liu Kang that tore straight through his chest and heart.
  • Mind Rape: Like Bison, he's adept at using this. As a result, he's highly resistant to Bison's Mindrape tactics.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: He's conquered many realms, including the once peaceful world of Edenia, and he has his sights set on Earth.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Does this twice in the fight, pummeling Bison with his fists while pinning him to a column and beating the shit out of Bison with his hammer.
  • Playing with Fire: Can spit green fireballs.
  • Power Copying: Absorbs Bison's soul and thereby gains new-found Psycho Power.
  • Ramming Always Works: Non-vehicle example. His Charging Spikes maneuver is used extensively in the fight, and four consecutive times in a row sends Final Bison to the ground.
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: His upper head is dominated by a skull-like helmet.
  • Soul Eating: His inhuman strength is derived from the souls he's devoured over the years. Keep in mind, he's assumed to have eaten around 60 billion souls. He also uses his Soulnado to capture Bison's soul after killing him.
  • SNK Boss: Being difficult final bosses in fighting games is one similarity between both Kahn and Bison.
  • Spikes of Villainy: For Shoulders of Doom, which gives Charging Spikes its namesake.
  • The Starscream: He was The Dragon for the former Evil Overlord of Outworld, the Dragon King Onaga until Shao Kahn poisoned him and took over.
  • Trash Talk: Not as much as Bison but still dishes out boastful remarks while simultaneously dishing out pain.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Only wears a cross-shaped harness on his chest.
  • Your Soul is Mine!: The reason why he's been around for so long is because of all the souls he's devoured, which increases his strength and longevity. Does this to Bison after ripping him in half.

M. Bison

M. Bison: "Yes, yes, I killed your father. What is it with you women anyway? I killed my father too, and you don't hear me whining about it!"

Master Bison of Shadaloo

  • Badass Arm-Fold: Often does this during teleporting or other use of psycho power.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: His Psycho Power is an altered version of the Soul Power that he was taught. He deliberately removed the good part of his soul and uses the negative energy to strengthen his attacks.
  • Big "NO!": Lets out one of these as Kahn absorbs his soul.
  • Body Surf: While his body may deteriorate due to Psycho Power, he has a supply of backup bodies that he can transfer his soul into. Even if he doesn't have one on hand, he can possess a weakened foe if given the chance.
  • Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: His clothes turn black when he transforms into Final Bison. The analysis even states that this form "Somehow changes clothes."
  • Composite Character: He is based on his appearances in all of the Street Fighter games, films, and television media.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: Planned to take over Cammy's body as a failsafe should he ever be killed. Even Boomstick is creeped out by this.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: His entire fighting style is based around this. Bison's Psycho Power can take a heavy-if-not-lethal toll on his body if used too much/too powerfully.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: Bison is the crafty leader of the Shadaloo terrorist organization, using money and power to spread his dominance over the world.
  • Enemy Without: An inverted case, the good part of his soul that expelled out of his body became a woman named Rose.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Even in his more serious depictions, Bison can be a ham.
  • Face Palm: His reaction after Kahn simply responds with "Is that your best?" when Bison hits him with a Nightmare Booster.
  • Fantastic Fighting Style: He's created a fighting style called Shadaloo-ism. Boosted by his Psycho Power, it focuses on speed and power.
  • Flight: Levitation variety. Which Kahn also gains upon absorbing his soul.
  • A God Am I: Bison is very conceited about his Psycho Power, considering himself to be a god.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Shao Kahn literally rips him in half. This doesn't finish him off surprisingly, as his ghost is still ready to kick ass, then Kahn immediately absorbs the soul.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Impaled through the shoulder and pinned to a column by one of Shao Kahn's Light Spears. This enabled Kahn to wail on him without interruption. Unlike most times this trope shows up in the show, this does not kill him, as it was a non-fatal puncturing point.
  • Ki Manipulation: His projectile attack is the Psycho Cannon, an orb made of Psycho Power. He throws a bunch of them at Kahn, but he reflects them with his Emperor's Shield.
  • Leitmotif: M. Bison Theme from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Theme of M. Bison from Street Fighter IV, and Brave or Grave from Street Fighter Alpha 3 play during his analysis.
    • The M. Bisons from the movie and TV series created some memes, including the "Yes! Yes!" meme.
    • The But for Me, It Was Tuesday meme and the original clip make it into Bison's profile. FANSERVICE!!!
  • Mind Rape: "A hobby of his" quoth Wiz. He tries this on Shao Kahn but fails thanks to Shao's own experience using this trope giving him resistance.
  • No Body Left Behind: The new powers granted to Kahn after absorbing Bison's soul results in him chucking a few of his new psycho cannon projectiles; the last one fired hit the ripped-in-two Bison corpse, disintegrating it.
  • One-Hit Kill: At its full power, Psycho Crusher can potentially do this to a normal human. However, Shao Kahn is not a normal human.
  • Power Echoes: In his Final Bison form.
  • Psychic Powers: Can levitate and inflict Mind Rape on his opponent, brainwashing them as a result, Kahn however, is also well versed in the latter skill, and has resistance.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Killed his own parents, resulting in his upbringing by nomadic gypsies.
  • Shooting Superman: Using soul-fueled attacks against someone who "eats souls for breakfast" works just as well as you'd expect it to.
  • Slide Attack: This appears to infuriate Boomstick upon mention.
  • SNK Boss: His overpowered Final Bison form is a frequent final boss in the Street Fighter games, and has an unlimited super meter.
  • Stone Wall: Bison's regenerative powers has allowed him to survive the most powerful attacks and recover from obviously lethal injuries. He's one of the few people to survive Akuma's Raging Demon. However Bison's immortality is limited, and he can still die if his Psycho Power drains his body.
  • Super Mode: Final Bison. A.K.A. True Bison/Shin Bison. Bison can use his Psycho Power at full strength, but it mutilates his body and lowers his defenses. Like everything he threw at Shao Khan earlier, it didn't do him jackshit.
  • Super Toughness: His Psycho Power allowed Bison to still fight after getting impaled, electrocuted, shot and crushed under a building all in one go.
  • Take Over the World: He strives to conquer the world and control it under Shadaloo law.
  • Teleport Spam: Frequently teleports to get the drop on Shao Kan.
  • Trash Talk: Every time he lands a good shot on Shao Kahn.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Seeks to wipe out the world governments and rule over all... to protect the world's rapidly depleting resources, naturally Boomstick compares him to Captain Planet.

    Ryu Hayabusa VS Strider Hiryu 

Ryu Hayabusa

Ryu: "Such selfish arrogance... I cannot allow this!"

The Ultimate Dragon Ninja

  • Air Jousting: Attempts this against Strider Hiryu...and fails.
  • Ancestral Weapon: The True Dragon Sword has been used by his ancestors.
  • Annoying Arrows: The Fiends Bane Bow is too slow to hit Strider Hiryu.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: While ninjas are known for their stealth, Ryu is skilled enough to come out of a battle sword swinging.
  • Breakable Weapons: Everything he has on him sans the True Dragon Sword.
  • Child Prodigy: Described verbatim by Wiz, trained since he was a baby, Ryu went beyond the Hayabusa family's expectations.
  • Composite Character: Both his classic and modern appearances are added to his analysis.
  • Cool Sword: The True Dragon Sword, carved from a dragon's fang. Ryu can increase its power with the Eye of the Dragon. While sharp enough to cut through people with little effort involved, Hiryu can do the same with a karate chop.
  • Demon Slaying: He defeated the demon Jaquio to rescue his girlfriend.
  • Disney Villain Death: The last hit of Hiryu's Ragnarok smashed Ryu through several stone floors.
  • Fuuma Shuriken: The Windmill Star
  • Heal Thyself: Can heal from injuries that can instantly kill a normal person, however, said healing takes a lot of time, much longer than Hiryu's Medical Trick. In the fight, after getting severely wounded, Ryu doesn't have enough time to heal before Hiryu barrages him with Ragnarok, finishing him off.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Lampshaded.
    Wiz: despite mastering the ninja art of stealth, he tends to just rush in, sword swinging. Every. Single. Time.
  • Improbable Age: Ryu single-handedly defeated an entire cult and army by the time he was 18.
  • Infinity +1 Sword: Combining the true Dragon Sword with the eye of the Dragon results in the sword's true potential as a divine weapon.
  • Kamehame Hadouken: The Hayabusa Torn Sky Blast.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: The True Dragon Sword is Ryu's most powerful weapon and the only one that can withstand Falchion's heat... however, it's still not as effective as the cypher.
  • Ki Manipulation: Using Ninpo, he can channel his spirit energy into powerful techniques.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Ninjutsu and Ninpo combined.
  • Leitmotif: Ninja Gaiden NES intro theme by Etheric Aesthetics, The Night of Lukifell by Vurez, Main Theme from Ninja Gaiden (2004), and The Shooted from Dead or Alive 2 play during his analysis.
  • Made of Indestructium: The True Dragon Sword. It's the only weapon that could withstand Falchion's heat.
  • Magic Knight: His soul is abnormally potent and this enables him to use a form of magic.
  • Me's a Crowd: Can create body copies via Ninpo.
  • No Body Left Behind: An option C drone drops a grenade on his corpse, destroying it.
  • Off-Model: Likely because Ryu's more modern look is not available in sprite form, the animator had to use his older, purple ninja garb outfit for the battle.
  • One-Man Army: Single-handedly defeated both the criminal cult of Nostradamus and the army of Emperor Gerudo. In the match itself, he reduces a whole battalion of Option B and C drones into so much scrap metal when Hiryu tries to sic 'em on him
  • Only the Chosen May Wield: Only a Hayabusa can wield the True Dragon Sword safely. Anyone else who tries to wield it will have their soul slowly eaten away.
  • Playing with Fire: Art Of the Inferno/Fire Wheels.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: The Windmill Star will keep trying to return to Ryu after he throws it, flying around him in a deadly orbit until he catches it.
  • Rain of Arrows: Fiend's Bane Bow + Super Speed = Strider Hiryu facing a barrage of arrows. He dodges all of them.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: This shows up in his match against Hiryu as a reference to the famous intro of his NES game.
  • Sinister Scythe: The Eclipse Scythe, a weapon forged by werewolves and quenched in the blood of living human beings.
  • Spider-Sense: Has a ninja sense that allows him to detect danger.
  • Spinning Piledriver: Catches Hiryu in one.
  • Super Speed: Fast enough to dodge automatic fire. However, he is approximately 43% slower than Hiryu.
  • Teleport Spam: Short distance teleports.
  • Trick Arrow: One of his arrows is a bomb arrow, though it also gets destroyed by Hiryu's Falchion.
  • Walking Armory: Swords, staves, bows, shurikens, chain-sickles, and more. It's a shame most of them can't handle the heat of Hiryu's Falchion.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Most of his arsenal is reduced to this as only the True Dragon Sword could withstand Hiryu's Falchion.
  • You Killed My Father: Ryu avenges his father's death in the first Ninja Gaiden.

Strider Hiryu

Hiryu: "There is no escape... Legion! No place for amateurs."

The High-tech Mercenary

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Falchion. Justified in that cuts using high voltage plasma energy, which is over 2 million degrees Celsius (3.6 million Fahrenheit). It's a major boon in the fight: when combined with Hiryu's insane speed, it cuts most of Ryu's arsenal into pieces.
  • Attack Drone: Option A, which are satellite drone bots equipped with lasers.
  • Barrier Warrior: He can use Falchion to deflect projectiles.
  • Blade Spam: Strider dashes around and stabs foes from multiple angles by using Ragnarok.
  • Child Prodigy: Became the youngest Special-A class strider in history.
  • Composite Character: Of both the games and manga counterparts.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Sending an army of his Options against Hayabusa ended with them being treated like so much Mecha-Mooks.
  • Conveniently an Orphan: He was orphaned at a young age before he was shipped off to the Strider training program.
  • Cool Sword: Falchion is indestructible and uses plasma energy.
  • Diagonal Cut: On the delivering end of this, after his Single-Stroke Battle with Ryu, nothing happens for a moment... then suddenly, it's revealed Hiryu managed to pull this off.
  • Energy Weapons: Falchion.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Several of his tools and this gets a Lampshade Hanging by Boomstick after Wiz describes the Climb Sickle and Jump Trick
    Boomstick: I guess they don't have a Thesaurus at the ninja school.
  • Heal Thyself: With Medical Trick. In the fight, its fast-acting effects manage to heal some of Hiryu's wounds before going back into the brawl.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Also lampshaded.
    Wiz: Hiryu's speed and agility are off the charts; fortunate, since he doesn't seem to ever use his ninja stealth skills.
  • Hot Blade: The Falchion, a light sword cypher that cuts with a plasma aura that leaves a trail of death. Combined with his superhuman feats, it makes short work of Ryu, even with the latter's True Dragon Sword (the only weapon he has to stand up to the Cypher).
  • In a Single Bound: With Jump Trick.
  • Kill It with Fire: Can do this with Falchion.
  • Kill the God: Has slain Grandmaster Meio, the creator of the Strider universe, twice.
  • Leitmotif: Theme, Stage 1 from Strider (Arcade), 1Stage Demo and Burning Force from Namco × Capcom, Strider Horyu's Theme from Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Destroy the Terrorists in the Occupied City from Strider 2, and Strider Hiryu's Theme from Marvel vs. Capcom play during his analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He could dodge anti-aircraft fire and cut through the gunman with his bare hands. His superior strength and speed makes him overpower Ryu.
  • Morph Weapon: Falchion can take many shapes depending on his need.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: In-universe, the "ching" noise Falchion makes when swung, according to Boomstick.
  • Noble Bird of Prey: Option C, one of his combat drones.
  • One-Man Army: Like all Striders.
    Boomstick: Even a C-rank strider has the strength and skill of a whole team of special forces, so just imagine what a special-A class Strider can do!
  • Panthera Awesome: Option B, another of his combat drones.
  • Playing with Fire: Fire Trick.
  • Razor-Sharp Hand: Could slice clean through the human body with a karate chop.
  • Really 700 Years Old: 2000+ actually.
  • Retired Bad Ass: After the shock and anger of being forced to kill his own sister.
  • Retraux: When using Medical Trick, hr brings up the pause screen from the NES Strider.
  • Shock and Awe: Hiryu can fire calls of electricity with Spark Trick.
  • Super Soldier: Anyone going through the Strider Program becomes this, and he is a Special-A class Strider. For comparison, even a mere C-class Strider is a One-Man Army.
  • Super Speed: See Lightning Bruiser. He is approximately 43% faster than Ryu, who is no slouch in this department.
  • Super Strength: See Lightning Bruiser.
  • Sword Beam: The Falchion can fire Plasma blasts, Plasma arrows, and Plasma boosts.
  • Teleport Spam: With the help of Varja, a teleportation gadget.
  • Wall Crawl: With the Climb Sickle.

    Ivy Valentine vs. Black Orchid 

Ivy Valentine

Ivy: "You're in need of some discipline! I'll teach you to behave! Satisfied?"

Ivy from Soul Calibur

  • Alchemy Is Magic: Her adoptive father was an alchemist. She taught herself how to use alchemy rituals which she can use in certain attacks. She also used alchemy to create her unique snake sword.
  • Baleful Polymorph: Turned into a frog by Orchid's magic, rendering her helpless and giving Orchid a fatal opening.
  • Blue Blood: Her adoptive parents, the Valentines, were a noble family. Her full title is Countess Isabella Valentine.
  • Buxom Is Better: It's relevant to the fight. She is estimated to be one size larger than Orchid and therefore is unaffected by her Breast flash Finisher.
  • Choke Holds: Catches Orchid in one with her Whip Sword, Orchid escapes by shapeshifting and phasing through the weapon.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Her fighting style relies mostly on long to mid-range attacks which prove to be her undoing since Orchid panther form was fast enough to get in close quarters and Ivy lacked any effective way of countering that.
  • Difficult, but Awesome: Valentine is a difficult weapon to control, but with Ivy's skill it becomes one of the deadliest weapons in Soul Calibur.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her biological father, the pirate Cervantes de Leon was a rapist and her adopted father died, leaving her to continue his research of the Soul Edge and commit some crimes she would later regret.
  • Doorstop Baby: Was left on the doorstep of a rich couple when she was a baby.
  • Empathic Weapon: She unwittingly summoned Soul Edge's host Nightmare to make Valentine sentient.
  • Fanservice Pack: As Boomstick gladly notes, her chest seemingly gets bigger every game.
  • Floral Theme Naming: "Ivy"
  • Gag Boobs: The hosts actually have different theories to how Ivy uses them to their full "potential". Boomstick thinks she looks younger because she stores her age in them, while Wizard assumes she uses their momentum to increase her speed in a fight.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: While he's not a vampire, her father was one of Soul Edge's hosts at one point. Because of this, Ivy has Soul Edge in her blood and seeks to destroy anything related to the destructive sword.
  • Irony: Despite wanting to destroy Soul Edge for its violent nature, she has the cursed blood of Soul Edge running through her veins, due to Cervantes being a host and Nightmare's power making Valentine a living sword.
  • Instant Runes: A part of her Critical Finish is creating an alchemical magical array.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Uses Summon magic and Alchemy along with her melee attacks.
  • Leitmotif: Unblessed Soul from Soul Calibur, Without the Blessing of Fate from Soulcalibur V, and Maze of the Blade from Soul Calibur II play during her analysis.
  • Morph Weapon: Her weapon can switch between a sword and whip.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Part of her profile states "a dominatrix for no real reason".
  • No-Sell: She laughs at Orchid's Breast Flash Finisher, before using it herself.
  • Older Than They Look: Is 49 years old, but due to Soul Edge's curse, she stopped physically ageing at 32 years old.
  • Power Copying: Watches Orchid perform her Breast Flash Finisher, and immediately follows up with one of her own. Possible subversion, however, since Ivy's version was not a match finisher.
  • Sexy Coat Flashing: Performs a version of Orchid's Heart Attack after seeing it.
  • Squashed Flat: After Black Orchid performs a Finishing Stomp on her frogged self.
  • Statuesque Stunner: 5'10'' (178 cm) tall.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She wants to destroy anything related to Soul Edge. This includes innocents and herself.
  • Whip Sword: The Valentine can switch between a normal sword to a 9-meter whip sword.
  • The Worf Effect: Her power is acknowledged by the hosts, but in canon, she has 3 wins and 4 losses. This is a major reason for her loss, compared to Orchid's One-Woman Army capabilities in defeating Eyedol.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: Uses her Whip Sword to pull Orchid up close.

Black Orchid

Orchid: "Spinning Sword! Lasaken! Yeah!"

Black Orchid from Killer Instinct

  • A-Cup Angst: If you can believe it, Orchid throws down her tonfas in disgust after she realizes Ivy has bigger breasts than she does (Ivy's DDDD, or G size vs. Orchid's DDD, or F size).
  • Baleful Polymorph: One of her No Mercies is to use her magic to turn her opponent into a frog. She attempts it on Ivy and succeeds since Soul Edge does not give protection to other kinds of magic.
  • Dual Tonfas: Her standard weapons are laser tonfa for her quick and brutal fighting style.
  • Finishing Move: Her No Mercies. She has four of them: Shocker, Scorcher, Frog Squash, and Heart Attack. She uses three of them in battle. Heart Attack does not affect Ivy. Shocker is the last attack she uses on Ivy in her Ultra Combo, though it does not finish her. She kills Ivy with Frog Squash.
  • Finishing Stomp: She jumps on her opponent after turning them into a frog in one of her No Mercies and finishes off Ivy with it.
    Boomstick: Smash him! Smash him! Yeeeees.
  • Gag Boobs: Wizard elaborates that the effect of her Heart Attack finisher is caused by males not being able to comprehend the shock of their sheer size.
  • Intangible Man: She can phase through attacks as a flaming panther.
  • Floral Theme Naming: "Orchid"
  • Heroic Second Wind: At the last second, Orchid snaps out of her dizzy state, evades Ivy's sword strikes, and unleashes a brutal No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on her.
  • Heroic Seductress: She's a beautiful government spy that's not afraid to flaunt her good looks, even to lethal effect.
  • Hot Witch: Wizard and Boomstick think she's "Some type of witch."
  • Kick Chick: Many of her techniques involve kicking and the hosts note that some of them defy gravity.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Theorized to actually use Kung Fu in addition to her own magic.
  • La Résistance: Her government agency assigned her a mission to take down the evil Ultratech corporation by entering their fighting tournaments.
  • Leitmotif: Orchid Theme from Killer Instinct SNES and arcade, Kim Wu's Theme from Killer Instinct 2, and the Killer Instinct Theme play during her analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: She prefers using speed over strength, but is strong enough to win the first Killer Instinct tournament and defeat Eyedol. Her speed and strength overwhelm Ivy multiple times in the fight.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Her 'special attack' alone qualifies but there's also her outfit.
  • Mysterious Past: Even Orchid herself doesn't know much of her past. At the very least, it's assumed she's from Tibet, as her brother Jago was born there.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: In true Killer Instinct fashion, delivers one to Ivy at the end of the battle.
  • One Woman Army: Killed Eyedol, a beast that a whole army from 2000 years ago couldn't surmount. The skill needed to do this tips the odds far in her favor.
  • Playing with Fire: Several attacks such as fire projectiles and transforming into a flaming panther.
  • Sexy Coat Flashing: Her Heart Attack No Mercy. She turns away from the screen and flashes her foes.Any male who sees it will die of a heart attack, and it can even work on non-human males. However, it seems to not affect females (or at least, no LETHAL effect). It doesn't work on Ivy, but that's because her chest is bigger.
  • Shock and Awe: Her weapons emit electricity, as such she uses it in her special moves and finishers.
  • Sibling Murder: Played for laughs. She kills her brother Jago with her Heart Attack finisher to get over her A-Cup Angst.
  • Simple Staff: Her kali sticks from the first game.
  • Spy Catsuit: Her green jumpsuit leaves little to the imagination.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Into a flaming panther.

    Fox McCloud vs. Bucky O'Hare 

Fox McCloud

Fox: "I see 'em up ahead! Let's rock and roll!"

Captain of the Star Fox Commandos

  • Ace Pilot: He was at the top of his class at the Cornerian Flight Academy, and became the leader of his old man's mercenary team after his passing.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Fox's legs are blown off by one of Bucky's grenades, but thanks to the below trope it didn't kill or completely hamper him. Instead, Fox grabs his jetpack and rockets into Bucky, tackling them both to the ground, chokes the hare and then headshots him
  • Artificial Limbs: Each member of the Star Fox team has had their legs amputated and replaced with cybernetics to better withstand g-forces. That said, later games would reveal that the Star Fox crew don't actually have mechanical legs, they just look mechanical.
  • Attack Reflector: His Reflector Barrier. It can reflect projectiles, but it cannot protect Fox from physical attacks. The Arwing is also capable of creating one when it does a barrel roll.
  • Badass Crew: His team is comprised of fellow dropouts Falco Lombardi and Slippy Toad, as well as the wise Peppy Hare, a former member of his father's Star Fox team.
  • Beam Spam: An uncharged Blaster shot shoots lasers at a rapid pace, but they don't cause an enemy to flinch.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Fox wins the battle, but his closest friend Slippy Toad is dead thanks to Bucky.
  • Boom, Headshot!: On the delivering end; shooting Bucky at point-blank range with a charged pistol blast could only end in this.
  • Charged Attack: He's modified his Blaster to unleash power-charged blasts that can destroy armored turrets.
  • Choke Holds: Puts Bucky in one at the end, right before blowing up his head.
  • Composite Character: The games and comics are both used to fill up his bio.
  • Cunning Like a Fox: Inverted. Fox's rundown analysis shows that he is more of a shoot first and ask questions later type of character. Boomstick put it best of course:
    Boomstick: When he comes up with a plan, he ends up falling into a black hole. "Clever like a fox", my ass.
  • Deflector Shields: His reflector proves useful deflecting Bucky's lasers and one of his grenades just not the resulting explosion mentioned above.
  • Determinator: He might not be as cunning as Bucky but makes it up with his unmeasurable courage. He is so resolute he can even fight after losing his legs.
  • Emotion Suppression: Fox has trained himself to not feel any emotions in a fight, making him totally fearless and focused in the battle.
  • Energy Weapon: Carries one in the field and it is capable of charged blasts.
  • Flash Step: His special attack called Fox illusion.
  • Funny Animal: The Lylat System is full of them, Fox included.
  • Jet Pack: He uses a man-sized G-Diffuser for propulsion.
  • Inertial Dampening: Besides the G-Diffusers in his Arwing, he also carries portable versions that manipulate his gravity to perform Fire Fox and Fox Illusion.
  • Irony: Bucky's ship is called the Righteous Indignation. This is exactly the emotion that Bucky inspires in Fox when he kills Slippy simply for being a toad.
  • Leitmotif: Main Theme from Star Fox Adventures, Intro, Title Theme, and Corneria from Star Fox, and Star Wolf (Star Fox: Assault) from Super Smash Bros. Brawl play during his analysis.
  • No-Sell: Fox's Reflector can deflect any projectile.
  • One-Man Army: Has fought in three wars and won them all almost single-handedly, in contrast with Bucky, who frequently works on a team.
  • Playing with Fire: His Fire Fox attack from Super Smash Bros, created via his G-Diffuser.
  • Pulling Themselves Together: In the Artificial Limbs sense, he gets a new pair of legs from what appears to be Slippy's corpse.
  • Revenge: Fox's team defeated Andross, the man who killed his father, twice.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: His motive for fighting Bucky to the death? Bucky killed Slippy. Fox clearly wasn't happy about this.
  • Space Fighter: The Arwing, a one-man fighter with enough firepower to blow up entire fleets. It easily takes down the Righteous Indignation before the fight properly begins.
  • Taught by Experience: Fox has far more experience fighting in, and ending, wars (more often than not by himself) than Bucky. This is the deciding factor for his victory.
  • Tragic Dropout: The Cornerian government assigned a mission for his father, James, to prevent a civil war in the Lylat System, which leads to his death. Angered at the government's actions, Fox dropped out of the Cornerian academy and started a new Star Fox team.
  • Who Needs Their Whole Body?: His artificial legs are blown off by one of Bucky's grenades. However, since they're not real, they only hinder him for a moment.

Bucky O'Hare

Bucky: "Attention all hands, battle stations. Let's croak toads!'"

Captain of An Galactic-Wide Rebellion

  • Ace Pilot: Bucky is a member of the intergalactic Sentient Protoplasm Against Colonial Encroachment organization and captain of his group.
  • Always Chaotic Evil: His reason for scrapping Slippy Toad. All toads are evil, right?
  • Badass Crew: The crewmembers of the Righteous Indignation include the mystical Jenny, trigger-happy marksman Dead-Eye Duck, kid genius Willy DuWitt, Blinky the android, and tough guy Bruiser. Together, they protect the Aniverse from the Toad Empire.
  • Boom, Headshot!: On the receiving end; point-blank range with a charged pistol blast could only end in this.
  • Composite Character: Combines the traits of his cartoon, video game, and comic book appearances.
  • Cool Starship: The Righteous Indignation, his flagship. Its Maser Cannon was enough to bring Slippy down, but it doesn't last long against Fox's Arwing.
  • Energy Weapon: He goes into battle with a personal laser gun.
  • Fantastic Racism: He does not like toads, as the toad race in his series wants to take over the Aniverse with an iron fist. As such, he targets Slippy right away when his team comes across Star Fox.
  • Funny Animal: The Aniverse is populated by... well, take a guess.
  • Goomba Stomp: To Fox multiple times at one point during their fight.
  • Guile Hero: He prefers to out-think his opponents rather than to simply overpower them.
  • In a Single Bound: As could be expected from a rabbit, he could jump at incredible heights.
  • Irony: His ship is named the Righteous Indignation, but both he and that ship meet their ends by the hands of a justifiably furious Fox.
  • Jet Pack: Which lets him fly fast enough to outrun an explosion.
  • La Résistance: Bucky leads a galactic-sized one against an army of frog nazis led by what is essentially a frog Skynet Hitler. His team overthrew the Evil Overlord Komplex twice.
  • Kick the Dog: To get the fight started, Bucky kills Slippy for no reason other than because he's a toad. Fox did not take. At. ALL.
  • Leitmotif: The main theme from the cartoon series, Green Planet by J Rokujuushi, and the credits theme from the arcade gameplay during his analysis.
  • Oh, Crap!: When an Artificial-legless Fox charges at him with his jetpack.
  • Righteous Rabbit: He's a trusting freedom fighter and a bunny. However, he takes an unrighteous action in the animation by shooting down Slippy, who didn't cause him any trouble.
  • Sole Survivor: The Righteous Indignation needs the entire crew to function, so with Bucky hopping out of the ship's ruins alone, (and Blinky's cameo at the end of the fight), it's implied they're the only ones to survive its crashing.
  • The Apprentice: He was a student of the rabbit warrior Damaron Jabok.
  • The Strategist: He's a lot more cunning than Fox and nearly wins the fight by exploiting the limitations of Fox's Reflector.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Carries two different types of grenades at any given time. One grenade clips Fox enough to knock off his artificial legs.
  • Totally Radical: The theme song for our funky fresh rabbit is both hilariously outdated and awesomely catchy!
  • A Tragedy of Impulsiveness: Bucky picked the wrong toad to croak, he and his entire crew paid the price by one vengeful fox.
  • Unexpected Character: He is from a fairly obscure comic and cartoon series from the 70's/90's.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Wiz himself notes that Bucky's return to the spotlight does not last long.
  • Your Head A-Splode: Again, on the receiving end, because he was headshot point-blank by a charged laser.

    Terminator vs. Robocop 


Terminator: "I'll be back."
Voiced by: Joe Gaudet

The Time Traveling Metal Assassin

  • Action Bomb: If his Hydrogen Fuel Cells are damaged, they will explode spectacularly. If the fuel cells are still inside his body...
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The government created the defense network Skynet to protect humanity. It ended up hunting humanity to near extinction.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Robocop tosses a car at him which pins the arm holding his plasma rifle, forcing him to detach it.
  • Androids Are People, Too: Terminators are capable of learning human emotion, in one such case, one Terminator was capable of feeling sad.
  • Artificial Human: Created by Skynet to combat the last remaining Human resistance, and can create a functioning human disguise with its Metal skeleton concealed (unless damaged).
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Identifies Robocop's organs as weak points. However, he fails to capitalize on this since he couldn't get past his armor.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He was programmed to observe a target to analyze their weakness.
  • Badass Bandolier: Which he apparently stole from the freshly deceased gun shop owner.
  • Badass Biker: Seen in the analysis, but fails to factor into the battle itself.
  • Ballistic Discount: He arrives in the present inside a gun shop, where he quickly kills the owner and steals his clothes and weapons.
  • Composite Character: Of each of the T-800s that appear in the Terminator series, the upgraded version (one that is armored in coltan), and their appearances in crossovers and games.
  • Cool Shades: Flicks them on after his killing/robbing/blowing up entrance. Robocop's scan even identifies them as "cool sunglasses".
  • Defiant to the End: Even while getting jettisoned to the sky far away from Robocop as he explodes, he warns Robocop, "I'll be back!"...which he's wrong about.
  • Determinator: Described as "always comes back", and proves his tenacity during the battle, going after Robocop after his fleshy exterior was blown off, and again when he was reduced to half a body.
  • Dramatic Ammo Depletion: After unloading multiple rounds from his shotgun into Robocop, the T-800 shoves the barrel right up to Robo's face and pulls the trigger, clearly intending to blast his brains out with one last shot...and then can only glance at the shotgun in surprise when he hears a *click*.
    Robocop: Nine shots: you're out.
  • Exorcist Head: Does one near the end of the battle to face Robocop when the latter lifts him from behind.
  • Feel No Pain: As a true machine, he does not react to any damage, unlike the part-human Robocop, who grunts, screams, and doubles over several times in the fight.
  • Firing One-Handed: Despite losing an arm and wielding a plasma rifle too heavy for any human to carry, Terminator effortlessly fires and cocks his gun with surprising speed.
  • Fragile Speedster: With Robocop surpassing Terminator in strength, durability, and firepower, all Terminator has going for him is his better mobility on foot... which didn't do him much good if he can't take the same amount of punishment his opponent can.
  • Gatling Good: His GE M134 minigun. He's the page's image after all. Proves largely useless in the fight except to damage Robocop's jetpack since it only uses small ammunition and can't pierce his armor.
  • Guns Are Worthless: His Hardballer Longslide pistol isn't effective against Robocop's armor.
  • Hack Your Enemy: One of his greatest weakness that he can be easily hacked, which has happened to him at least four times.
  • Hammerspace: Pulls an M-27 plasma rifle out of his torso during the fight.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Gets blasted in half, but this doesn't kill him due to being a robot.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Summed up best by Boomstick:
    Boomstick: "This model was first sent to super-early-abort John Connor... then protect John Connor... then protect John Connor again?!"
  • Implacable Man: Even says so in the captions, "always comes back", and once more, he's the page's image. Though he won't be coming back from this fight.
  • Immune to Bullets: His highly advanced metallic skeleton causes bullets to only damage his fake skin and clothing, but nothing else. Explosions on the other hand can do a number on him.
  • Instant Expert: Skynet programmed the Terminator to have knowledge on all forms of combat and weaponry throughout history. Wizard points out this means it knows more about combat than any human can ever know.
  • Kill All Humans: The Terminators were programmed to wipe out the last of humanity.
  • Leitmotif: Main Theme from The Terminator, A Day In the Life and T3, from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, and I'll Be Back, Trust Me, Helicopter Chase, It’s Over (Good-Bye), and Main Theme from Terminator 2: Judgment Day play during his analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Much faster than Robocop, and dish out a lot of punishment. However, his speed and power alone aren't enough to get past Robocop's defenses.
  • Made of Iron: Coltan actually, it's stronger, heavier, and more heat resistant than titanium, he received this upgrade after the titanium endoskeleton proved ineffective at withstanding extreme temperatures. He still doesn't have as much defensive power as Robocop.
  • Made of Explodium: Its hydrogen cores go up like small nuclear explosives.
  • Mistaken for Gay: When he arrives in the present, he orders a gun shop owner to give him his clothes and guns. The owner says he doesn't swing that way before getting killed.
  • Naked on Arrival: When he arrived in the gun shop, one of the things he demanded the owner to give him was his clothes.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Gives Robocop three. First, Robocop's inferior speed and combat skills made him a punching bag for Terminator, being slammed into the pavement before finally being thrown into his own police car. Second, unloading his Plasma Rifle mercilessly and at close range. Third, right after Robo forces Terminator to detach his arm holding the Plasma Rifle he whips out his shotgun and rapid-fires the thing into Robocop's body no less than 9 nines. However, Robocop's armor allowed him to survive.
  • One-Man Army: Described as carrying an army's worth of weaponry.
  • Out of the Inferno: Its entrance, after blowing up the gun shop it teleported in. Later again when Robocop knocks him into a tanker truck and it blasts off his skin.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Boomstick thoughts on the Terminator being modelled after Arnold Schwarzenegger while fighting a post-apocalyptic war, proceeding to list the SIXTEEN weightlifting competitions Arnold has been crowned champion in, including four Olympic ones. Wizard points out that only the 101 line Terminators have this appearance.
  • Plasma Cannon: His M-27 Phased Plasma Rifle, which is from the future and too heavy for humans to use properly. In the battle itself, he managed to bring one with him to the past by smuggling it in his torso, where it proved to be his most effective weapon against Robocop. However, since Robocop had tanked plasma shots in his own franchise, he was able to survive the assault long enough to find a way to disarm the Terminator.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: "You. Are. Terminated." Subverted, Robocop was able to launch Terminator far enough to not get caught in the blast.
  • Rasputinian Death: He was launched into a gas tanker by a rocket, had his right arm crushed a car, and his lower body destroyed by a point-blank explosion from a level 10 ordinance grenade. What ultimately puts him down was his fuel cells acting up.
  • Shotguns Are Just Better: The Franchi SPAS-12 Shotgun is one of his most favored weapons. During the fight, it proves to be one of the few weapons able to make Robocop flinch, and he even manages to deliver a No-Holds-Barred Beatdown on Robocop via rapidly unloading nine consecutive shots into him. However, it's not enough to pierce Robocop's armor, and when it looks like the T-800 will manage a critical blow by aiming it right at Robocop's face and brain, he's out of shells.
  • Sinister Shades: First thing the Terminator does when he arrives in the present for the battle? Steal the guns from a gun shop, kill its owner, and blow up the gun shop itself, before putting on a pair of these.
  • SkeleBot 9000: The T-800's true form.
  • Stripped to the Bone: Has his artificial skin completely burnt off via an exploding gas truck, his metal skeleton underneath, however, is unharmed.
  • Stuff Blowing Up:
    • Courtesy of his M78 Grenade Launcher; he uses it to blow up Robocops police cruiser.
    • This can also happen to himself if his Hydrogen Fuel Cells are damaged, he can remove them, but the fuel cell will still leave a big bang. He nearly takes out Robocop by blowing himself up, keyword "nearly".
  • Suicide Attack: Attempts to blow up Robocop and himself via his ruptured Hydrogen Fuel Cells at the very end, His attempt doesn't work as planned.
  • Super Prototype: Despite being an older model, the Terminator has beaten superior copies like the T-X, which was designed to destroy Terminators.
  • Super Strength: Able to carry the M-27 Plasma Rifle with ease, a feat beyond the capability of any human.
  • Super Toughness: He's dealt with blows from other Terminators and survived plowing through an entire city.
  • Taking You with Me: Can use its hydrogen cells as makeshift bombs as a last resort. Attempts to self-destruct them to kill Robocop, but is strapped to Robocop's jetpack and sent into the air, where the explosion will only destroy the Terminator.
  • Time Travel: The original Terminator was sent back in time to prevent the birth of John Conner, the leader of the human resistance against Skynet.
  • Trampled Underfoot: His analysis includes a scene of a Terminator stomping on a human skull. At the end of the battle itself, his head gets this treatment from Robocop.
  • 20 Minutes into the Future: Skynet began deploying Terminators in the far off future of 2004.
  • Villains Blend in Better: The Terminator was created to look like a normal human blend in with humanity before killing them.
    Boomstick: Yes, because two-time powerlifting champion Arnold Schwarzenegger is totally your average guy!
  • Walking Armory: Carries a handgun, shotgun, grenade launcher and minigun; at the same time on its back.
  • Wall Crawl: Climbs up the side of a building during the battle to even the odds against Robocop's Flightpack.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Is physically weaker than Robocop, but has knowledge of several martial arts.


The Old Man: "Nice shootin', son. What's your name?"
Robocop: "Murphy."
Voiced by: Xander Mobus

Detroit's Cyborg Defender

  • Achilles' Heel: His organic parts. Doesn't play a role in the fight since the only time the Terminator was going to take a shot at them, he ran out of ammo.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Deliberate all the way.
  • Arm Cannon: Can attach a gun to its left arm.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Identifies the Terminator's waist hinge as one. He successfully attaches a max level Tactical Ordinance grenade on it to blow the Terminator in half.
  • Back from the Dead: Was gunned down during a routine patrol and brought back as the crime-fighting cyborg we know today.
  • BFG: His Cobra Assault cannon, a gun with enough firepower to blow up a car.
  • By-the-Book Cop: The robot part of him obeys the laws.
  • Car Fu: Throws a car at the Terminator during the battle to crush the arm holding a plasma rifle, literally disarming him.
  • Composite Character: In addition to wielding the weapons used by his film incarnation, Murphy also employed the tactical discs and rambot devices he used in The Series.
  • Cowboy Cop: This allows him to determine how exactly he interprets those laws.
  • Crossover: Well, there was that one time he rescued Sting from The Four Horsemen...
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Alex Murphy, the man they built Robocop out of, spends every waking moment trying to regain his humanity from the work done to him by OCP.
  • Cyborg: Part robot and part human.
  • Evil, Inc.: He was brought back to life by the cutthroat Omni Consumer Products Corporation. Since they owned the Detroit police force, they had ownership over Murphy's body. To combat Detroit's rising crime, they transformed him into a killing machine.
  • Flight: Has a jetpack that doubles as an emergency power supply.
  • Genius Bruiser: One of the reasons for his victory; both of them can plan, but Robocop possessing a human brain makes him less predictable.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He is not happy that Terminator killed an innocent man. He bolts his car over after the gun shop explodes, and calmly asserts that Terminator will come with him, dead or alive.
  • Grew Beyond Their Programming: The OCP tried to make him an unfeeling robot, but Murphy's human side still lives. Even while being controlled by an evil corporation, he wants nothing more than to go back to living his normal life with his wife and son.
  • Gun Twirling: Naturally does this a lot during the battle, being Robocop's most famous Character Tic even back when he was still human.
  • Hand Cannon: His signature Auto-9 handgun, Boomstick outright calls it this trope.
  • Hour of Power: His power cells only last for 24 hours, in contrast to the Terminator's 120 years. His power is also depleted by excessive activity and battle damage. He's reduced to 1% before he manages to win.
  • Immune to Bullets: They don't harm him and just bounce off his armor, but still cause the occasional knockback.
  • Improvised Weapon: His Terminal Strip is sharp enough to be used as a shiv.
  • Jet Pack:
    • Uses it to snipe the Terminator from the air with the Cobra Assault cannon.
    • Then uses it to launch the remaining intact bits of the soon-to-explode T-850 out of the area.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: He stops the Terminator's minigun by firing bullets down its barrels.
  • Kill It with Fire: His flamethrower attachment inside his robotic arm.
  • Leitmotif: Rock Shop, Across the Board and The Dream from RoboCop (1987) and Robo Saves Lewis from RoboCop 3 play during his analysis.
  • Magic Countdown: Robocop's power core level drains throughout the fight from the damage Terminator inflicted on him. His power level goes all the way to 1% at the very end. Despite this, there are no signs of Robocop slowing down from a loss of power, instead it is more from his injuries.
  • Mighty Glacier: Very slow, but can take insane amounts of punishment and possesses a very destructive arsenal. He's defensive enough to withstand all of Terminator's punches, weapons, and his own Tactical Ordinance Grenade at level 10. His weaponry is also deemed much more powerful than that of the T-850's.
  • More Dakka: Despite Terminator having a MINIGUN, Robocop's futuristic weapons have more dakka compared to Terminator's present-day modern weapons. This gives him the advantage in the arsenal.
  • Multiple Gunshot Death: Alex Murphy died getting shot multiple times by gang members.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: Since he still is a cyborg with human parts, he is vulnerable to the common cold. However this can make him sneeze lightning!
  • Nice Guy: As a human, Alex J. Murphy was a kind-hearted police officer who loved his family.
  • No-Sell: By jamming his ram bolts into the ground, any vehicle that tries to run him over immediately becomes scrap metal. In the fight, he uses these to prevent blowback after firing a grenade up close at Terminator.
    • Terminator's smaller guns, like his hardballer, do not affect Robocop's titanium armor.
  • Oh, Crap!: His reaction when he realizes Terminator's hydrogen fuel cells are about to explode. Fortunately, he figures out the solution.
  • One-Man Army: Took out almost all Detroit's crime in just a few days. Boomstick says this trope verbatim in regards to his firepower.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner:
    Robocop: Good news, scum. You are no longer under arrest.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: "Checkmate" ...Subverted that it doesn't totally kill Terminator, but he does a few moments later.
  • Relocating the Explosion: Attempts to do this during the battle itself and succeeds by strapping the Terminator and his ruptured fuel cell onto his Flightpack.
  • Shoot the Bullet: His targeting system is shown to be accurate enough to do this. While he doesn't literally do it in the battle itself, the precision required to do this feat allowed him to shoot into all the barrels of the Terminator's minigun, jamming it in mid-use.
  • Sticky Bomb: His Tactical Ordnance grenades, which stick to things he throws them at and comes with 10 charge levels. He plants one on the Terminator set at max level to successfully reduce him to half a body.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: With the use of his Smart Bomb Missile, Tactical Ordnance grenades, and Cobra Assault cannon.
  • The Strategist: When compared to Terminator. Robocop's human mind allowed him to outsmart the Terminator, even though Terminator's computer mind is at least on par with Robocop's. Terminators lack the creativity and logic of a normal human.
  • Super Strength: Strong enough to throw cars, lift 10-ton doorways, and stop/reverse 3000 PSI pneumatic presses. He's far stronger than what Terminator is capable of.
  • Super Toughness: His armor is made of titanium and laminated with Kevlar. With it, he can withstand a bazooka shot strong enough to wreck his car, multiple plasma blasts to the chest, fall from a skyscraper through the ground to hit a gas main and survive the resulting explosion, and once tanked a bomb powerful enough to destroy the brick warehouse he pushed it into before crawling out of the resulting destruction without injury. These feats are far above anything the Terminator models have shown being able to survive.
  • Trampled Underfoot: Stomps on the Terminator's skull after the battle.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Robocop can reverse a car compactor from crushing him but is SO SLOW that he can barely lay a punch on Terminator. One of the notes is he is not programmed for martial arts.
  • Walking Armory: He carries a lot of weapons on him, but in particular, his Weapon Arm carries a machine gun, flamethrower, and a smart bomb.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: OCP rebuilt the body of mild-mannered cop Murphy into a cyborg with the power of a One-Man Army.

    Luigi vs. Tails 


Luigi: "Yeah. I do it. Ho! Hm hm hm hm hm... Oopsie! Oh..."

Mario's Younger Brother

  • BFG: Not used in the fight proper, but Boomstick does bring up the "Unmaking Canon" from the Mario Ice Capades, which annihilates Koopas in a flash.
  • Butt-Monkey: Poor Luigi, he's such a butt monkey that his repressed negativity can be energized to form the Negative Zone.
  • Charged Attack: He can charge up and launch himself forward with the Green Missile. It powers through an Energy Ball shot at the beginning of the fight, but Tails knocks Luigi out of it with a tail attack.
  • The Chosen Many: He's one of the Star Children, powerful characters in the Mushroom Kingdom destined for greatness. However, he struggles to keep a competent image due to his awkwardness and unlucky Butt-Monkey reputation.
  • Confusion Fu: Between his continued service despite his fear and his odd skills and attacks, he's hard to predict, and he incorporates this clumsiness into his fighting style. The sheer confusion gets ramped up more with his Negative Zone move.
  • Cowardly Lion: He'll carry on in the face of terror if he feels he has to.
  • Crippling Overspecialization: Having moves that can launch an opponent sky high and have an area of effect works well in a Platform Fighter, not on someone with flight and Super Speed.
  • Drop the Hammer: Has his own hammer. After Tails grabs onto him and pulls him into the air, Luigi brings it out to smack him senseless.
  • Glass Cannon: Luigi has very powerful moves compared to Tails, but lacks any effective defensive weapon. Tails was able to survive and endure the match better with his gadgets.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Luigi's Negative Zone affects gravity and time. When Luigi was throwing Tails' bomb that was planted on the Poltergust, the distorted gravity and time made the bomb throw too slow for Luigi to escape it.
    • Earlier in the fight, when Tails drops a bunch of bombs on Luigi, he gets the idea to suck them up and shoot them back at Tails. Unfortunately, they just miss Tails and end up literally blowing up in Luigi's face.
  • Hollywood Tactics: Luigi comes up with the idea to use the Poltergust to suck up and shoot Tails' bombs back at him. However, Tails is so high in the air that the bombs don't shoot far enough and instead fall back to the ground where Luigi is.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Is faster, more athletic, and a higher jumper than his brother, but his cowardice takes him down a few pegs.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Impaled by Tails' Magic Hand through a pipe.
  • In a Single Bound: Luigi's jumping skills are unmatched in the Mario universe. Even Mario, who used to be called Jumpman, can't jump as high.
  • Intangibility: One of the effects of the Vanish Flower. In the battle itself, Luigi uses it to escape Tails clutches after the latter hoists him up to the air
  • Invisibility: One of the effects of the Vanish Flower. Combined with the Intangibility effect, this helped give him the edge in his melee free-fall battle against Tails during the actual match.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: Luigi has survived being the fallboy for Mario however despite his experience, Luigi's durability isn't impressive enough to make him survive everything.
  • Keep the Reward: He doesn't mind helping out Mario, never asking for his share of the cake.
  • The Lancer: Since they're brothers, he's obviously Mario's most loyal and trusted ally.
  • Leitmotif: The themes playing in his analysis are "Game Selection" from Super Mario All-Stars, "Main Theme" from New Super Luigi U, "Athletic Theme" from New Super Mario Bros Wii, "Battlerock Galaxy" from Super Mario Galaxy, "Professor E. Gadd" from Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, and "Mr. L, Green Thunder!" from Super Paper Mario.
  • Limit Break: Negative Zone, which can only be used after breaking a Smash Ball. As Luigi dances, he creates an orb of negative energy that causes different effects on his foes, from uncontrollable taunting to tripping over nothing. It trips up Tails, but he takes to the air to propel himself out of it.
  • Lovable Coward: He's afraid of almost any threat in the Mushroom Kingdom, but will always buck up to help his bro out.
  • Mighty Glacier: Luigi has several powerful moves, but is heavily beaten by Tails in terms of mobility, making it difficult for the green-cap plumber to land a single hit. Which ends up costing him his life.
  • No Respect Guy: Even if he does help Mario, he doesn't get as much appreciation as his older brother.
  • Not Quite Flight: He can slow his descent by using his Scuttle Jump ability, which he created after studying Yoshi's Flutter Jump.
  • Number Two: From the very beginning, Luigi was Mario's loyal player two.
  • Playing with Fire: His Fire Jump Punch, which can send foes flying if pulled out at the right moment.
  • Oh, Crap!: His expression multiple times in the fight (makes sense since he's a coward).
  • Shock and Awe: Taught to him by the god of thunder, his Thunderhand ability allows him to strike with electricity and empower soccer balls. He uses this with a warp-pipe-launched Super Jump Punch to land a few good blows.
  • Shotoclone: Has fireball projectiles and the Shoryuken-esque Super Jump Punch.
  • Spin Attack: The Luigi Cyclone, which he uses against Tails' Rapid Tails Attack.
  • Successful Sibling Syndrome: He's always playing second banana to gaming's most famous hero, and never gets as much respect as his brother. The Negative Zone is a physical representation of those feelings of being brushed to the sidelines.
  • Use Your Head: The Green Missile, which has Luigi rocket forward like... a missile.
  • Weapons That Suck: The Poltergust 5000, which is capable of sucking in and killing ghosts. In the battle itself, this helped him limit Tails' speed and mobility when he's within range until Tails found a way to disable it.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Inevitable if he's going to fight Tails, who's only 8 years old.


Sonic: "We good to go or what, Tails?"
Tails: "Hm... I've built a TV out of paperclips..."
Sonic: "Yeah..."
Tails: "...and reprogrammed a super computer using dishwashing detergent and a toothpick..."
Sonic: "I know..."
Tails: "...So look, fixing a propeller on a bi-plane? That's about as difficult as taking a nap."
Sonic: "'Kay, I did not need your whole life story. A simple "good to go" would have been cool."
Tails: "Alright. Good to go!"
Sonic: "Cool!"

Sonic's Deformed Flying Stalker

  • Arm Cannon: Frequently pulls out his Energy Ball arm canon in the fight.
  • Blinded by the Light: His Flash Bang grenade stuns Luigi, giving him enough time to attach a bomb to his Poltergust.
  • Captain Ersatz: The Energy Ball Cannon is 'ripped straight out of Mega Man' (according to Boomstick).
  • Child Prodigy: Despite his young age, he has an IQ of 300. He even met his idol this way, by easily fixing his broken airplane.
  • Children Forced to Kill: He's a Kid Hero participating in a Death Battle after all, so Tails will need to kill Luigi if he plans to win. He eventually does.
  • Composite Character: Tails backstory is a combination of Sonic the Hedgehog (Archie Comics) (Born the same day as Robotnik's takeover), Sonic X (Him meeting Sonic by fixing the tornado is otherwise just stated in a manual), and even the incident with him transforming is from the comics' Dork Age (Don't do steroid kids), but all of his abilities and feats are from the video games.
  • Conveniently an Orphan: He was born the same day Eggman began his robotic takeover. His parents were among the many casualties of the mad doctor's conquest for world domination.
  • Extendo Boxing Glove: His Magic Hand, which is basically a boxing glove attached to a chain. It's strong enough to impale Luigi through a Warp Pipe.
  • Fear of Thunder: As Boomstick put it, "After a good thunderclap, you'll find him shivering his spinny ass off in a bathtub". In the battle itself, this allowed Luigi's Thunderhand to be one the few attacks to consistently hit Tails, as his fear made him a sitting duck.
  • Flight & Heli-Critter: With his tails, confusingly enough. In many (but not all) games, Tails cannot fly for more than a few seconds and is quickly exhausted, but in other media, he can fly for several minutes and at high altitudes while maintaining a subsonic speed. In Tails' Skypatrol he has almost no limit to his stamina.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Tails has a large variety of gadgets, most of which he built himself. He even showed his skill when he rigged the Poltergust to explode while Luigi was stunned, despite Tails having no prior knowledge of the vacuum's construction. Tails also rebuilds his healing bot after the fight to recover from his wounds.
  • Gameplay Ally Immortality: Under the control of an AI, he's unkillable even without any rings, but tends to get the snot beaten out of him worse regardless.
  • Heal Thyself: He heals his wounds in the fight using his Medi Bot.
  • Hero-Worshipper: He looks up to Sonic and the two have a brother-like bond.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Near the end of the battle, Tails installs a bomb on Luigi's Poltergust while the plumber was stunned. However, due to the Negative Zone, Tails wasn't able to fly away fast enough and was caught in the blast with Luigi.
  • Improbably High I.Q.: Tails has been described as having an IQ of 300 or 400, enough to rival Eggman's intellect. Keep in mind that he's 11.
  • Infernal Retaliation: Tails' tails were slightly on fire before the end of the match. He heals from the burns shortly after repairing his healing bot.
  • Kid Hero: Tails is noticeably one of the youngest characters. 8 years old in most games, but he's given the age of 11, just like in the comics. Despite this, he has been able to defeat Eggman's army almost as well as Sonic can. Other than the T-850, Tails is the youngest fighter in Season 2.
  • Leitmotif: The songs playing during his analysis are "Seaside Hill Act 2" from Sonic Generations, "Emerald Hill Zone" from Sonic The Hedgehog 2, "Believe in Myself (Instrumental)" from Sonic Adventure 2, Mad Gear Zone Act 2 from Sonic the Hedgehog 4 and "Event - All Heroes Gather" from Sonic Heroes.
  • Lovable Coward: Not as much as Luigi, but Tails does suffer from an inferiority complex, most obviously shown in Sonic Adventure.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Tails' Shield Bot can produce shields. This gives him a slight defensive advantage over Luigi, even though Luigi destroys them quickly.
  • Mad Bomber: Tails isn't crazy but for some reason, his favorite weapon is explosives, bombs and grenades. He has napalm bombs, remote-controlled bombs, homing bombs, flashbangs, explosive dummy ring traps, bombs shaped like your mother (according to Boomstick) just to name a few.
  • MacGyvering: Tails was able to repair a tv and a computer using common household items.
  • Multiple-Tailed Beast: Due to a birth defect, Tails was born with, well, two tails. Sonic was the one who encouraged him to spin them like helicopter blades to fly.
  • Not the Fall That Kills You: Tails carried Luigi thousands of feet into the air, probably to drop him. Luckily for Luigi, he was able to surprise Tails by turning invisible and then use his Scuttle Jump to slow down the descent and survive the fall.
  • Number Two: He's Sonic's right-hand man, so much that the two are rarely far apart.
  • Punny Name: His name, Miles Prower, is a pun on "miles per hour."
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Child-sized, twin-tailed fox.
  • Rings of Death: His Projectile Ring, which also lets him grab things from afar and latch onto stuff. During the battle, Tails attaches it to a pipe so he could resist the suction of Luigi's Poltergust long enough to throw a flashbang at Luigi.
  • Rolling Attack: With the Spin Dash, a technique he invented.
  • Spin Attack: Counters the Luigi Cyclone with his Rapid Tails Attack.
  • Stalker with a Crush: According to Boomstick, Tails is Sonic's 'deformed stalker'.
  • Super Speed: By spin-dashing or spinning his tails, Tails can propel himself forward without relying on his legs for mobility. Tails is almost as fast as Sonic and has been recorded at subsonic and even supersonic speeds.
  • Super Strength: Tails' strength is rather normal. However, thanks to his gadgets he can achieve feats of Super Strength, especially his Projectile Ring and the Magic Hand.
  • Tail Slap: Normally used as a melee attack and can be used in midair. It has been demonstrated as cutting through metal robots and metal boxes.
  • The Strategist: The analysis mentions that Tails relies more on logic and tactics in a fight, in contrast to Sonic's Speed Blitz battle style. Realistically, Tails' IQ of 300 and Luigi's goofy and clumsy personality showed a huge contrast in intelligence. Luigi is no idiot, but Tails was able to easily outsmart him. After all, his IQ rivals that of Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein COMBINED and the Archie Comics have confirmed his brilliance in battle. The best examples in the fight include Tails using a flashbang when Luigi was using his Poltergust, and then rigging the Poltergust to explode while Luigi was stunned, and quickly realizing that he needed to escape the Negative Zone.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Wields a huge variety of bombs, one of which he uses to blow up the Poltergust. This gets lampshaded in the analysis.
    Boomstick: But despite being a super-geek, he really loves to blow shit up. He carries a huge supply of bombs. Big bombs, napalm bombs, remote bombs, flash-bang grenades, bombs shaped like magic rings, bombs shaped like mice, bombs shaped like your mother, you name it, he's got a bomb like it.
  • Undying Loyalty: After becoming friends, Tails pledged himself to fight alongside Sonic and his allies against Eggman's tyranny.

    Starter Pokémon Battle Royale 


Pokédex: "Venusaur, the final form of the Bulbasaur evolution. This Seed Pokémon soaks up the sun's rays as a source of energy."

The Pimply Plant Monster

  • Beam-O-War: Engages Charizard in one, with his Solarbeam.
  • Charged Attack: Venusaur needs to wait a turn to charge up a Solar Beam. However, it's so powerful, that Venusaur needs to wait a turn before using it again.
  • Composite Character: Uses the feats it shows in all of its anime appearances.
  • Damage Over Time: Between Sweet Scent, Poison Powder, and Leech Seed, it's one of his offensive tactics. Unfortunately for him, it's not nearly enough to overcome either Blastoise's defenses or Charizard's blistering offensives.
  • Death Cry Echo: Lets out a bestial one as he succumbs to the Charizard's Flame Burst.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: It's strong against Water types, but it makes easy prey for Fire and Flying types. Its poor matchup against Charizard is what caused its downfall.
  • Forced Sleep: Can knock foes out with Sleep Powder. While Charizard and Blastoise fight, Venusaur uses it, causing Charizard to flee and Blastoise to fall asleep.
  • Gonk: It's cute as a Bulbasaur, but it gets more unsightly as it evolves.
  • Green Thumb: Known as the Seed Pokémon, it's part-Grass type. Many of its abilities utilize typical plant structures like leaves and vines.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Has its flower, that makes up roughly half of its size, torn off by Charizard. This doesn't kill him, but Charizard's flame burst right afterwards does.
  • Heal Thyself: Synthesis slowly heals Venusaur using sunlight.
  • Hybrid Monster: Boomstick refers to it as a "Froggy-Plant thing."
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Has pretty balanced stats when compared to Charizard and Blastoise. This turns out to be a bad thing: he has no effective way to overcome Charizard's sheer offense and Blastoise's sheer defense. As a result, he dies first.
  • Leitmotif: "Setting Off" from the Pokémon Anime Sound Collection, "Rival Battle" from Pokémon X and Y and "Reflection Cave" from Pokémon X and Y.
  • Life Drain: Can suck a foe's life away with Leech Seed.
  • Lovable Lizard: It's the most docile of the starters and the easiest to raise.
  • My Friends... and Zoidberg: at the end after he and Charizard die.
    Boomstick: CHARIZARD! NOOOOOOOOOOO! oh and froggy-plant-whatever-asaur.
  • Petal Power: Its Razor Leaf attack is sharp enough to cut through trees solid.
  • Planimal: A dinosaur with a flower on its back
  • Poisonous Pokémon: Part-Poison type, at least.
  • The Power of the Sun: The Solar Beam gains power from the sun, and is over 6739° Fahrenheit.
  • Rare Candy: A bunch of them are dropped into the wilderness to transform a Bulbasaur into its final stage, Venusaur.
  • Standard Status Effects: Poison, Sleep, Sapping health, etc.
  • Stone Wall: It utilizes its above-average special attack for more defensive skills, like increasing its strength or lowering an opponent's defense.
  • The Strategist: Wiz claimed that Venasaur's advantage could be to outsmart his enemies using the variety of skills and moveset. In the match, he allowed Blastoise and Charizard to fight each other while preparing for its attack.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Solarbeam, dubbed a "super laser" by Boomstick.
  • Weak, but Skilled: In a sense. Venusaur isn't particularly strong, tough, or mobile, but it has a much wider selection of status and support moves than its competition. Deconstructed, his lack of powerful offensive moves is why he dies first.
  • Whip It Good: Can smack and grab foes with Vine Whip. It latches onto Charizard to hit it with a Solarbeam, but he escapes and counters with a Flamethrower.


Pokédex: "Blastoise's strength lies in its power, rather than its speed. Its shell is like armor, and attacks from the hydro cannon on its back are virtually unstoppable."

The Bazooka Turtle

  • Backpack Cannon: There are two giant cannons on the back of its shell. By using Hydro Pump, it's capable of shooting water that's strong enough to cut through steel.
  • Blue Oni: To Charizard's Red. More solitary and composed.
  • Composite Character: Of the games and anime canons.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: Can easily douse out Fire-types, but is weak against Grass-types.
  • Eye Scream: Charizard's fangs penetrate his skull far enough to seriously damage his left eye, possibly even blinding it. In exchange, Blastoise tears off Charizard's wings.
  • Hidden Elf Village: The Blastoise species prefer to live away from humans, residing on islands to hone their strength.
  • Hybrid Monster: Played for laughs; Boomstick claims that it came about when a turtle had sex with a tank.
  • Just Eat Him: Eats Venusaur's flower at the end of the fight.
  • Kill It with Water: His hydro cannons can propel water powerful enough to puncture solid steel. According to Ben's research, his cannons can propel a water blast at 90,000 PSI. He makes Charizard explode by filling him with too much water.
  • Interspecies Romance: Boomstick goes on about a longwinded theory about how Blastoise was created by a turtle having a one-night stand with a tank.
  • Leitmotif: "Fighting Spirit" from the Pokémon Anime Sound Collection, "Kalos Legendary Theme" from Pokémon X and Y, and "Kanto Elite Four/Gym Battle Theme" from the Pokémon Anime Sound Collection.
  • Making a Splash: A turtle-like Water-type Pokemon, it can shoot blasts of water from the cannons on its back.
  • Mon Bites Mon: Both Blastoise and Charizard were not against biting each other, with Blastoise aiming for the neck.
  • Mighty Glacier: The Blastoise line possess the highest defense and the slowest speed of the Kanto starters. This is actually a strong advantage for him, as it allows him to take hits from both Venusaur and Charizard.
  • Never Trust a Trailer: The trailer for his battle, at the point where Charizard and Venusaur are at the Beam-O-War, Blastoise's shell could be seen at the bottom right corner. Mistaking it for an unintentional spoiler, some viewers believed he was the first character to die. In the fight, turns out he was merely sleeping via Venusaur's Sleep Powder, and he's the only one who doesn't die.
  • No-Sell: The move Protect causes this for one turn. In the battle, he uses this to evade Venusaur's attacks, prompting him and Charizard to fight each other instead.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's the shortest of the three starters, but he's also got the highest defense stats and his attacks pack quite a punch. Fittingly, he's the most likely winner of the three.
  • Power Nullifier: Rapid Spin can clear any Leech Seeds off of it, rendering the move useless. This wasn't used in the fight; however, Rain Dance's ability to weaken Fire attacks was.
  • Rare Candy: A bunch of them are dropped into the wilderness to transform a Squirtle into its final stage, Blastoise.
  • Simple, yet Awesome: Has the smallest offensive moveset but the best moves to counter his foes.
  • Shoulder Cannon: Boasts two of these.
  • Spin to Deflect Stuff: Can resist hazards by spinning around using Rapid Spin.
  • Stone Wall: Slow, but can take a LOT of punishment he can further increase his already great defense with Withdraw, Iron Defense, Skull Bash, and tucking inside his shell. To the point that he's able to shrug off most of his opponents' attacks, especially after buffing said defenses even further.
  • Sturdy and Steady Turtles: While he is the slowest of the bunch, his shell gives him sturdy protection. After getting Slashed by Charizard, it hides in its shell using Iron Defense to protect itself. When Charizard can't pierce his shell, he throws the giant turtle at Venusaur's face.
  • Turtle Power: A giant turtle tank thing.
  • Use Your Head: Can deal a powerful blow with Skull Bash.
  • Victorious Roar: Roars to celebrate his victory at the end of his fight.
  • Weaponized Animal: Has two cannons as a part of its back. Boomstick wonders how it came to be.
  • Weather Manipulation: Can perform Rain Dance, which strengthens water type moves and weakens fire type moves. He summons a storm near the end of the battle, and it helps him win by weakening Charizard's fire attacks.


Pokédex: "Charizard, the Flame Pokémon. When competing in intense battles, Charizard's flame becomes more intense as well."

The... Dragon

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Can give some nasty gashes with Slash, Dragon Claw, or Shadow Claw. His other Natural Weapon, his wings, become sharp enough to chop through Venusaur's flower with Wing Attack.
  • Balloon Belly: Blastoise fills him up with enough water to cause this. Adding even more caused him to explode.
  • Battle Amongst the Flames: Creates one with Fire Spin.
  • Beam-O-War: Engages Venusaur in one, with what appears to be flamethrower.
  • Blood Knight: Charizards love a good battle and will actively seek out Worthy Opponents for a fight. This ultimately proves to be his undoing. He goes after Blastoise first because he's the more challenging fight leading to him getting double-teamed, then later leaves Blastoise alone when he's incapacitated by Sleep Powder so he could challenge Venusaur. Both of these choices meant that by the time it was down to two Pokemon, he was battered enough for the now defensively boosted and less injured Blastoise to finish off.
  • Blow You Away: Is part Flying-type, and knows the aerial-based Air Slash and Wing Attack.
  • Breath Weapon: A few of his attacks are fired out of his mouth.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Flare Blitz is powerful, but it hits Charizard with 33% recoil damage.
  • Clip Its Wings: As it chomps down on Blastoise's head, Blastoise rips off its wings to keep it grounded.
  • Composite Character: Uses traits that belong to its anime and game counterparts.
  • Elemental Rock–Paper–Scissors: Its Fire/Flying typing makes it super effective against Grass types, but Water types can extinguish it easily. He kills Venusaur with no trouble at all. With Blastoise weakening Fire-type moves and strengthening Water-type moves with Rain Dance, however, he struggled- and lost- in an uphill battle.
  • Eye Pop: Right before he explodes, he has this expression for a split second.
  • Fastball Special: Hurls Blastoise at Venusaur at one point.
  • Flight: Sports large wings and is a part-Flying type Pokemon. Blastoise rips the wings off in the fight.
  • Fragile Speedster: Fastest of the three, but the least defensive. Turns out badly for him, as by the time he's done with Venusaur, he's more than weakened enough for Blastoise to take him out. Also, Venasaur's Sweet Scent weakened his ability to dodge attacks.
  • Glass Cannon: Has the highest Attack and Special Attack out of the three, but also has the lowest Defense and Special Defense.
  • Hot-Blooded: A fire-type Pokemon known to be warrior-like in nature and primarily focused on raw offensive power.
  • Incendiary Exponent: Its flaming tail is a pretty big hint to its Fire typing. Charizards can actually die if their tail flame goes out.
  • Kill It with Fire: One of its main forms of attack. He kills Venusaur with a Flame Burst.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Charizard is no idiot, but its only purpose in life is to find powerful opponents to fight, regardless of how strong they may be. Deconstructed, this mentality costed him a chance to win.
  • Leitmotif: "Pokémon, I Choose You!" from the Pokémon Anime Sound Collection and "Victory Road" from Pokémon X and Y play during his analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Has the highest Attack and Speed of the three starters.
  • Ludicrous Gibs: Explodes after being filled with too much water.
  • Mon Bites Mon: Both Blastoise and Charizard were not against biting each other, with Charizard biting Blastoise's head.
  • Playing with Fire: Part-Fire type Pokemon. He knows many different Fire-type moves, Flamethrower, in particular, can reach over 2000° Fahrenheit.
  • "Pop!" Goes the Human: Blastoise aims its water cannons directly down Charizard's mouth, causing him to inflate with so much water he explodes.
  • Rare Candy: A bunch of them are dropped into the wilderness to transform a Charmander into its final stage, Charizard.
  • Red Oni: To Blastoise's Blue. Very Hot-Blooded and possessing a warrior mentality.
  • Standard Status Effects: Burn.
  • Worthy Opponent: Sees Blastoise as this due to his type advantage. Inversely, he doesn't consider Venusaur a good fight. This is an important factor in the battle. He naturally would go for Blastoise first, thereby taking the force of two Pokemon at the same time. Even though Venusaur didn't end up doing much to harm Charizard and faced his wrath as a result, he still weakened Charizard enough for Blastoise to finish him off.

    Fulgore vs. Sektor 


Announcer: "Ultraaaaaaaaaaa Comboooooooooooooooooooooo!"

The Metal Monster of Killer Instinct

  • And I Must Scream: What makes him a cyborg as opposed to a robot is that Fulgore uses the brain of former Killer Instinct competitor and winner Black Eagle as basically a CPU ... all of this done unwillingly, with Black Eagle said to still be conscious of what is going on, but completely incapable of resisting his horrible, ironic fate.
  • Barrier Warrior: Thanks to his reflector, he can repel and return projectiles thrown his way.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: There's a plasma claw attached to each arm, capable of reaching 30,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Brain Uploading: After former Killer Instinct champion Black Eagle began exposing Ultratech's evil motives, he was killed and his brain was used to control the Fulgore prototype.
  • Chest Blaster: By fully charging his reactor, he can use his strongest attack: the Devastation Beam.
  • Cyborg: Created by the millions from Ultratech to further strengthen the megacorp's power over the world, though technically he was "just" a robot until they implanted Black Eagle's mind inside the original.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: His original self Black Eagle was a former winner of the Killer Instinct tournament, and after his transformation, he's capable of fighting and killing the strongest mortal beings in his universe (Jago, Orchid) in a one-on-one, though he likely doesn't think highly of it himself. The fact it took two fighters who were strong enough to kill demigods in battle to finally finish him off compared to Sektor often losing to Sub-Zero by his lonesome meant Fulgore was far more likely to come out on top.
  • Energy Weapon: Out of his chest and eyes.
  • Eye Beams: Comes equipped with the aptly named Eye Laser. He uses it to take out Sektor's missiles when he attempts to kill him with the Robo-Sek.
  • Fighting from the Inside: It's noted by the hosts that even to this day what's left of Black Eagle still fights, however futilely, to take back control of Fulgore from Ultratech's programming (with a few occasional successes). Not shown during the fight itself, likely since Sektor isn't the type of person Eagle would try hard to spare even if he was in full control.
  • Finishing Move: Has a variety of No Mercies at his disposal. He specifically uses the Machine Morph to destroy Sektor's remains after the battle.
  • Fireballs: Can fire energy projectiles made from plasma from his claws.
  • Flawed Prototype: After selling 15 million units of the Fulgore model, Ultratech entered it into their Killer Instinct tournament to test its combat capabilities. It turned out that its body was so advanced that Ultratech's scientists could not make an AI smart enough for it to function properly. Fortunately for Ultratech, they found one capable of controlling Fulgore after a certain Killer Instinct champion disappeared...
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: They're even the first thing we see of him from the preview trailer.
  • I Love Nuclear Power: Fulgore is powered by a nuclear reactor, and can exceed its power to get stronger.
  • Invisibility: With the use of a cloaking device. Sektor bumping into his invisible body is what kicked off the fight.
  • Laser Blade: Plasma Claws, his weapon of choice.
  • Leitmotif: Fulgore's Theme by Timothy Seals, Fulgore's Theme from Killer Instinct 2, Thunder's Theme from Killer Instinct (2013), and Fulgore's Theme from Killer Instinct (2013) play during his analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Can become this trope by charging up his reactor. he manages to charge it up enough to outclass Sektor in Strength, durability, and go toe-to-toe in speed. He also has access to a Teleporter to gain some leverage with Sektor's superior speed.
  • Ninja Zombie Pirate Robot: A cyborg designed to resemble a medieval knight.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Once Fulgore's reactor fully charges, he's able to break free of Sektor's Compactor and wail on him, turning him into scrap metal.
  • One Nation Under Copyright: The Fulgore robots are mass-produced law enforcers created by the earth-ruling Mega-Corp Ultratech.
  • The Rival: To the warrior-monk Jago. Unlike Sektor, who's been defeated and humiliated by his own rival Sub-Zero on multiple occasions, however, Fulgore would have won Round Two with Jago and killed him if his sister Orchid hadn't helped out.
  • Robot Hair: His "ponytail" resembles a knight-like plume. This was a deliberate design to give Earth's people the impression that these robots were modern-day knights.
  • Shock and Awe: Electric Spark, a surge attack emitting from his eyes.
  • The Stool Pigeon: A "Whistleblower" variation. Killer Instinct champion Black Eagle used his newfound celebrity to expose the corruption within Ultratech, and his influence almost caused an uprising against their leadership. To keep Earth's citizens under their control, Ultratech kidnapped and murdered Eagle, using his brain to utilize Fulgore's body to its full capabilities.
  • Super Mode: Overclocking his reactor will dramatically increase his speed and offensive capabilities, turning him into a Lightning Bruiser. The only problem is that it takes a long time to manually charge it up. During the battle, his various defensive and long-range options gave him the space he needed to do so, and once his reactor meter became full, the close battle became a curb-stomp.
  • Super Prototype: Despite being a prototype for Ultratech's line of mechanical soldiers, he's far superior to his mass-produced copies, due to being able to make use of Eagle's combat abilities.
  • Super Soldier: Created by Ultratech to be the ultimate killing machine.
  • Sword and Fist: Eagle was a practitioner of the Okichitaw fighting style, combing Judo, Taekwondo, and Hapkido with blade strikes. This style translates well with Fulgore's plasma claws.
  • Take Over the World: The analysis of Fulgore lists "Kill Jago, conquer the world!" as his Mission.
  • Teleport Spam: Thanks to his Cyberport.
  • Telescoping Robot: Somehow manages to fit a turret larger than his upper body into said upper body.
  • Transforming Mecha: His Machine Morph ability allows him to transform into a large battle mech. He only uses it at the end, solely to destroy Sektor's remains.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: That chest laser of his.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: He was destroyed by Jago, so Ultratech rebuilt him stronger and faster to ready him for a rematch.


Smoke: "You actually did it. You're a cyborg!"
Sektor: "We are the Lin Kuei. More stealthful than the night."

The Ninja Cyborg from Mortal Kombat

  • Blood Knight: His new purpose with the Tekunin is to simply fight other warriors to the death in Mortal Kombat. His fight with Fulgore would be his last.
  • Crazy Enough to Work: The leader of the Lin Kuei tried to make his clan strong enough to compete with Shao Kahn's army by turning them into cyborgs. His son Sektor was able to prove himself as a valuable aid to Kahn during the Mortal Kombat tournaments.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Sub-Zero and Smoke, two former Lin Kuei ninja, fled from the clan because of this. His sanity was a price to pay for his transformation into a cyborg.
  • Cyborg: Was once a high-class ninja of the Lin Kuei Clan, but willingly underwent becoming who he is today to gain more power.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: He was already one of the deadliest ninjas in the Lin Kuei before the Cyber Initiative, and afterwards turned into their ace in the hole for hunting down the traitors who refused cyberization. He never could defeat Sub-Zero in a straight fight, however, unlike Fulgore being able to kill Jago in their second-round if Orchid hadn't stepped in for a tag team.
  • The Exile: Once Sub-Zero defeated him, he banished him from the Lin Kuei. Sektor later created his own group of warriors called the Tekunin.
  • Face–Heel Turn: While the Lin Kuei created the Cyber Initiative to fight against Shao Kahn, Sektor took control of the clan and allied himself with Kahn.
  • Finishing Move: Comes with a variety of Fatalities to finish his opponent off. Both of his attempts to use them on Fulgore fail. Sektor's Robo-Sek was quickly shot down by Fulgore's Eye Laser, while Sektor's Compactor was held open by Fulgore's brute strength, with the subsequent stalemate giving the latter the opening he needed to overclock his reactor.
  • Fragile Speedster: He's much faster, lighter, and more agile than Fulgore. It's the only advantage Fulgore can't immediately counter, and it wasn't enough.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Wizard is understandably baffled as to why a stealthy assassin would use missiles to get the job done.
  • Invisibility: Thanks to a cloaking device housed in his design.
  • Leitmotif: The Tower, The Courtyard Night, The Subway, The Armory, and The Living Forest from Mortal Kombat 9 play during his analysis.
  • Kill It with Fire: Has two "flame burners" on each of his wrists.
  • Laser Blade: The Pulse Blades, Boomstick argues that they're "Royalty-free Lightsabers."
  • Ludicrous Gibs: Often what becomes of the victims of his Fatalities. In the case of Death by Irony, this happens to him when he gets blasted by Fulgore's Devastation Beam.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: Has access to several missiles and can use them in rapid conjunction. During the analysis, Wiz wonders why a ninja, master of the silent kill, would want to use them.
  • Ninja Zombie Pirate Robot: A ninja cyborg.
  • Overlord Jr.: Sektor is the son of the Lin Kuei leader.
  • Professional Killer: He was a skilled assassin within the Lin Kuei, being skilled in Ninjitsu, Sambo, and Kenpo.
  • The Rival: To Sub-Zero. Unlike Fulgore being strong enough to kill Jago in a straight fight, however, Sektor had to rely on an ambush to finally take him down and was constantly defeated in a straight fight.
  • Squashed Flat: Anyone unfortunate enough to get caught by his Compactor Fatality. Unless you're strong enough to prevent it from compressing, which Fulgore is.
  • The Starscream: Sektor killed his father and became grandmaster. Sub-Zero managed to take the title from him and reform the Lin Kuei.
  • Teleport Spam: With his Rocket Punch, he can warp around the arena and deliver an uppercut when emerging from the portal.
  • Telescoping Robot: His Compactor is taller than he is, it fits in his arm.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: To prevent violent overlord Shao Kahn from invading Earthrealm, the grandmaster of the Lin Kuei forcefully turned his entire clan into cyborgs. Sektor was the only one who was willing to go through the process.
  • Who Names Their Kid "Dude"?: Yes, he was born with the name "Sektor". Boomstick is convinced even then his father was already planning for the day he'd turn the entire clan into robots.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: He was insane before his willing upgrade to cyborg status, and he agreed to do so solely to gain more power; as such, he became even more insane afterwards.
  • X-Ray Sparks: You can see the remains of his human body when he gets hit by Fulgore's electrical attacks.

    Godzilla vs. Gamera 


(Godzilla roars)

The King of The Monsters

  • Acrofatic: Godzilla is a husky, 355 ft tall dinosaur who weighs 90,000 tons...who can somehow perform martial arts, wrestling moves, and even dropkicks that just kicks the laws of gravity in the dick several dozen times over.
  • Anti-Hero: Depends on the film, but the majority of the time Godzilla wants to protect the world from other more dangerous monsters while, at the same time, destroying Japanese cities. Occasionally he spares mankind or even tries to protect them, but other times he wouldn't care if they got caught in the crossfire so long as it was for the greater good.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Anywhere between 50 and 108 meters (164.042 and 355 feet) tall. Mention the name "Godzilla" to someone. Chances are this will be the first thing that comes to their mind.
  • Awakening the Sleeping Giant: All that atomic bomb testing is what awoke him in the first place.
  • Breath Weapon: His signature Atomic Breath beam attack.
  • The Cameo: Makes a brief cameo at the very end of Samus vs. Boba remastered.
  • Composite Character: Death Battle has taken the best traits from the Showa, Heisei, Millennium, and Legendary incarnations of Godzilla and rolled them into one. The official height and weight mentioned is from the Legendary depiction.
  • Energy Absorption: Can absorb thunderbolts to make himself stronger. (Or make him a giant magnet).
  • Energy Weapon: Atomic Breath.
  • Flight: Infamously in Godzilla Vs Hedorah, he flew by firing his atomic breath at the ground and flying backwards like a rocket. An expected strength, as Wiz points that for his atomic breath to propel himself into the air it would mean it has around a TRILLION tons of force behind it. He uses this to slow his descent when Gamera tries lifting him into space and blowing him into the ground, and the breath is also more than powerful enough to pierce Gamera's shell.
  • Freudian Excuse: All that nuclear testing is the reason why he attacks Japan.
  • Godzilla Threshold: As the trope namer, he forces Gamera into a desperate situation. Namely, self-destructing because he was missing an arm, low on mana, and about to be Red-Spiraled.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: Somehow knows boxing (and Judo).
  • Healing Factor: His cells regenerate super fast, leading to this.
  • Hero Killer: Kills the "Guardian of the Earth and Friend to All Children".
  • Hollywood Magnetism: Can absorb natural electricity (usually in the form of lightning) and use it to make his body magnetized.
  • I Love Nuclear Power: Feeds on the stuff, and has a nuclear-powered heart. Godzilla can emit and absorb radiation, turning entire cities into hazardous toxic wastelands.
  • Implacable Man: Got hit in the face with a black hole... and shrugged it off like it was nothing. He also survived an A-Bomb at point-blank range and it's unknown if a modern H-Bomb could even hurt Godzilla, with the 2014 American movie stating the Castle Bravo 'tests' were actually a failed attempt to kill him. Some films claim that Godzilla is a 'force of nature' instead of an animal since there normally is no way to kill him with human weapons. Godzilla has been crushed under skyscrapers three times taller than he is, yet resumed the fight as nothing happened. In the battle against Gamera, he was not slowed down when Gamera threw an office building at him. He even managed to tank Gamera's Wave-Motion Gun with little more than some superficial bleeding.
  • The Juggernaut: Godzilla has been known as a force of nature because he can't be stopped, be it by human weapons or other giant monsters. In Godzilla Final Wars, he defeats or kills all of his opponents with little damage to himself and with little effort (his "battle" with the American Godzilla lasted only 10 seconds).
  • Kaiju: The original Kaiju.
  • Leitmotif: Godzilla Appears in Hokkaido and Ominous Godzilla from Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, Godzilla's Theme from Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack!, Requiem from Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, Mothra vs Gigan and Godzilla vs Kumonga from Godzilla: Final Wars, Godzilla! from Godzilla (2014), Bio-Wars from Godzilla vs. Biollante, Fateful Confrontation from Godzilla vs. Megaguirus, Godzilla's Fight from Godzilla vs. Hedorah and "Godzilla's Theme from Godzilla: Unleashed play during his analysis.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: He can attract it to boost his power and obtain magnetic abilities, he does just this in the fight to pull of an Atomic Pulse attack and counter Gamera's attempt at a Suplex Finisher.
  • Lightning/Fire Juxtaposition: Embodies the Lightning side, he can attract the stuff to boost his power and obtain magnetic powers.
  • Mighty Glacier: He's not the fastest guy around, but Godzilla has overpowered many other kaiju with his raw power and nearly indestructible body and Gamera was no exception.
  • Natural Weapon: With his claws, teeth, and tail.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Godzilla is ridiculously hard to hurt, and even if you manage it, his healing factor makes quick work of any damage. He has only officially died twice; from the Oxygen Destroyer and a build-up of radiation in Godzilla vs Destroyah. In Godzilla, Mothra King Ghidorah Giant Monsters All out Attack, it is implied that Godzilla can survive as a disembodied heart.note 
  • Not the Fall That Kills You: Averted. Godzilla using his atomic breath to slow his descent after breaking free from Gamera's Suplex Finisher. He uses it to slow his descent, not stop his fall altogether. It's also helped by him landing in the water rather than on the solid ground.
  • Not Enough to Bury: Subverted. It looks like Gamera's Mana Beam did this to him at first, but it turns out that Godzilla was tough enough to withstand it and had instead used the light from the Mana Beam to hide his diving underwater.
  • Nuclear Nasty: He awoke during the Atomic Age when the United States was testing their newest hydrogen bombs. He himself was mutated by nuclear energy and can emit a burst of it or fire a laser-powered by radiation from his mouth.
  • Physical God: Godzilla is stated to be something between a force of nature and a God of Destruction in the movies.
  • Red Baron: Is repeatedly called the King of the Monsters. And he shows Gamera just why he deserves that title.
  • Smoke Shield: Uses Gamera's Mana Beam to hide his movements so he could secretly dive underwater and perform an ambush.
  • Stone Wall: Boomstick mentions that Godzilla's 'insane durability' was vital in winning many of his battles, even when facing obviously physically more powerful opponents like Mechagodzilla 1, King Ghidorah or Biollante. Even with Gamera's Mana Beam, he could do little damage to Godzilla. Godzilla's durability was able to counter Gamera's superior speed and powerful plasma attacks.
  • Super Breath: Which he uses to propel himself through the air, backwards. When Gamera tries to suplex him from space to Earth, he uses his nuclear breath to slow his descent.
  • Super Strength: Comes with being a Kaiju. He once lifted and threw the 100,000 ton Kaiser Ghidorah and matched The Mighty Thor in strength. At the beginning of the fight, he obliterates a building with one swipe of his claws.
  • Super Toughness: Has tanked everything from Nukes to Black Holes to dozens of enemy Kaiju. He's vastly more durable than Gamera, who gets defeated frequently on far less severe terms.
  • Tail Slap: Godzilla can use his long tail to strike opponents with enough force to send them flying. He was able to kill the kaiju MUTO with one hit from his tail and send Anguirus flying like a soccer ball.
  • Take That!: The hosts mention that Zilla from the American Godzilla film of 1998 will not be used as it was a "bastardized rip-off... that Toho bought the rights to just so Godzilla would murder it onscreen."
  • Time Abyss: This guy is over 65 million years old.
  • Tokyo Is the Center of the Universe: While he's attacked other places in Asia, Japan has been his preferred stomping ground for over 60 years.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Godzilla destroys at least half a dozen skyscrapers with his atomic breath while violently attacking Gamera. However, Godzilla was unaware of Gamera's ability to eat fire and he was able to re-energize himself with the flames from the building ruins.
  • Walking Wasteland: Leaves a trail of radiation behind wherever he goes, to the point where entire cities become uninhabitable. This trait vanished as Godzilla moved from 'villain' to hero in the Showa series and never reappeared.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Any variant of Godzilla's atomic breath beam weapon, whether it be Blue, Red, or Spiraling Red.
    • In Godzilla: Final Wars, he used the Spiraling Red version to push Kaiser Ghidorah to the edge of the Earth's atmosphere and caused an explosion large enough to be seen from the planet's surface. It's also strong enough to pierce straight through Gamera's shell.
    • Wiz also brings up that propelling Godzilla into the air means his atomic breath has an insane amount of force behind, roughly a trillion tons.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: As the hosts mention in the analysis, Godzilla "SOMEHOW knows judo and boxing". Godzilla used dropkicks, throws, and grappling moves in battle against opponents (including the epic slide kick used against Megalon). He uses the epic slide kick and a judo throw against Gamera during the battle.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: Godzilla never allows his opponent to escape his wrath and any who try had best be prepared for an Atomic Breath to the back. This proves to be an advantage for him since it takes Gamera at least 2 rounds to win a battle, one for studying his enemy then escaping, the other for defeating said enemy with a plan... Godzilla wouldn't let that second one happen.
  • War Is Hell: His backstory was inspired by what was happening in a Post-World War 2 Japan, and the traumatic effects of the nuclear bomb tests.
  • Your Soul is Mine!: He once absorbed a pterodactyl's soul to boost the power of his Atomic Breath into the Spiral Atomic Breath.


(Gamera roars)

The Guardian of The Universe

  • Acrofatic: He's a massive, bulky turtle monster... who can perform gymnastics and fly at supersonic speeds.
  • Action Bomb: Can overload on Mana to blow himself up, very similar to Terminator's Hydrogen Fuel Cells. Just like Terminator, he tries this move on Godzilla but gets pushed too far away before exploding to harm him.
  • Alien Blood: Whereas Godzilla has normal red blood, Gamera's blood is colored green.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Godzilla bites his left arm off, however, Gamera is only phased for a moment then continues fighting.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Anywhere between 60 and 80 meters (196.85 and 262.467 feet) tall.
  • Batman Can Breathe in Space: Could fly around in space unassisted and does so in the fight itself while carrying Godzilla as the first part of his Suplex Finisher.
  • Breath Weapon: Flamethrower breath. He can also spit explosive fireballs.
  • The Cameo: Makes a brief cameo at the very end of Samus vs. Boba remastered.
  • Chest Blaster: His Mana Beam.
  • Composite Character: Combine traits from the Showa and Heisei incarnations of Gamera, although the hosts' description of him as an Atlantian bioweapon leans more towards the latter.
  • Creating Life Is Bad: In the distant past, the Atlantians played god and created genetically engineered bird-like monsters that couldn't be controlled. Gamera was created to stop these beasts after they destroyed Atlantis.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: His Mana Beam drains the planet's life force and causes Gyaos to spawn.
  • Determinator: Mentioned in his analysis to have a fierce will to fight, and will continue even when in great pain if it will get him the win. The battle itself shows this when getting his arm ripped off hardly slows him down and he fires the Mana Beam at Godzilla in response.
  • Energy Absorption: Can eat fire to heal and strengthen himself. Godzilla breathing fire on a downed Gamera only makes him stronger.
  • Everything's Better with Spinning: His method of flying around. Boomstick questions how he can see where he's going and how he's not throwing up.
  • Feed It with Fire: Gamera can consume fire, petroleum products, and even radioactive material and magma. Since Godzilla's Atomic Breath is pure radiation, Gamera cannot eat it.
  • Flaw Exploitation: Tries to exploit an enemy's weakness in a fight.
  • Flight: His most notable ability alongside the Mana beam.
  • Fire Balls: He could fire ones hot enough to burn through nearly anything from his mouth.
  • Fragile Speedster: Being able to fly at Mach 3, he is definitely faster than Godzilla. However, he is easier to damage and even his shell has been pierced before. This was one of the reasons for his loss. Since Kaiju physically weaker than him such as Viras has been able to penetrate his shell, there's little doubt that Godzilla could do the same.
  • Friend to All Children: One of Gamera's official titles due to his tendency to protect children even at the cost of his own life. Even though he fears humanity might become a threat to the Earth, he still has a great fondness for children. Boomstick isn't impressed, and suggests a cooler-sounding title like "Gamera, the Flying Ninja Turtle of Doom".
  • Glass Cannon: He can do quite a bit of damage, especially with his Mana Beam, and thanks to his Flight he's also faster than Godzilla, but he lacks the implacable nature and Nigh-Invulnerability of Godzilla. Ironic considering he's a turtle.
  • Guardian Entity: He was created to protect Earth from other vicious kaiju. He is very cautious about humanity, though he has a soft spot for children. When Godzilla starts destroying a city, Gamera flies in to stop him, though has no qualms about using the buildings as weapons.
  • Healing Factor: He possesses one, though it's slower than Godzilla's and requires him to waste a lot of mana.
  • Humans Are Bastards: His greatest fear, that one day humanity will become the planet's greatest threat, and give him no choice but to deal with them.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Many times via Godzilla's teeth, spines, and the Atomic Spiral Breath at the end.
  • Kaiju: Another super famous giant monster.
  • Kill It with Fire: Gamera can spit fire in the form of a flamethrower and explosive fireballs.
  • Leitmotif: The Little Heroes from Gamera the Brave, Gyaos Flies Over, Gamera Appears and Gamera In Danger At Mount Fuji from Gamera: Guardian of the Universe, Offense and Defense and The Red Lotus Flame from Gamera 3: Awakening of Irys, Operation Rotation from Gamera vs. Gyaos, Demolition Plans, Appearance of Soutai, and Enormous Legion Confirmed from Gamera 2: Advent of Legion, and Gamera March from Gamera play during his analysis.
  • Lightning/Fire Juxtaposition: Embodies the fire side, feeding off of it and shooting out fire attacks.
  • Mana: In the Gamera universe, every living being has mana, though those who have the power to protect others have a greater pool of Mana. With Gamera being the guardian of Earth, he can store high amounts of Mana to heal himself or gather it from the Earth to increase his power.
  • Megaton Punch: The Vanishing Plasma Fist, described by Boomstick as a, "Kaiju sized Falcon Punch". Strangely, it didn't make an appearance in the fight because Gamera instead used the Mana for the Mana beam, and even then it couldn't kill Godzilla.
  • Meteor Move: Flies Godzilla into the atmosphere to drive him into the ground. Godzilla escapes the grapple with a nuclear pulse and slows his fall with atomic breath to survive.
  • Mistaken for Pedophile: By Boomstick when Wiz mentions Gamera's "strange fondness for children".
    Boomstick: (To the tune of the Showa Gamera theme song) Gameraaa, Gameraaa, he will bring kids to his van, touch them like no other can, please don't tell on Gameraaa.
    Boomstick: No, really!
    Wiz: Actually... he sacrificed his life to save children on multiple occasions. Even using his ultimate self-destruct move all for the safety of innocent children.
    Boomstick: Oh. That's pretty cool.
  • Natural Weapon: With his tusks, claws, and elbow spikes.
  • Monster Of Mass Destruction: The prelude mentioned he once destroy a Star Destroyer which shrugged off megaton level nuclear weapons.
  • Ninja Zombie Pirate Robot: A flying fire-breathing Ninja-turtle Kaiju.
  • Not Enough to Bury: His Fire Ejection Suicide Attack and Godzilla's red spiral atomic breath beam were enough to turn Gamera into nothing more than a few chunks.
  • Pædo Hunt: Boomstick interprets his "Friend to all children" status as something more sinister... until Wiz clarifies otherwise.
  • Plasma Cannon: His actually fires plasma energy with his fire breath.
  • Playing with Fire: Possesses a "fire breath" so strong, it could even be used underwater. He could also absorb fire to heal and energize himself.
  • Reality Ensues: Just being fast and smart won't do you any good against an opponent who can take anything you throw at them, as well as being strong enough to easily pierce your defenses.
  • Red Herring: When Godzilla bites one of his arms off it would seem like a good time for Gamera to use his Vanishing Plasma Fist but he instead skips straight to his Mana Beam
  • Suicide Attack: Both Godzilla and Gamera can absorb a lot of radiation, but they both have limits. While 'Burning Godzilla' can survive several days before meltdown, Gamera might self-destruct instantly. Attempts his Fire Ejection Technique against Godzilla, but Godzilla manages to throw him into the air and uses his red spiral atomic breath to push him far enough into the air that it doesn't hurt Godzilla.
  • Super Reflexes: Fast enough to catch a missile-firing straight at him.
  • Super Speed: Capable at flying at Mach 3 speeds.
  • Super Strength: Comes with being a Kaiju, in the fight he chucks a big piece of a building at Godzilla. During the fight, he displays the strength to carry Godzilla into space.
  • Super Toughness: Was able to endure a nuclear explosion that destroyed the city of Sendai.
  • Suplex Finisher: Performs one on Godzilla from outer space. Godzilla uses his nuclear pulse to escape and his atomic breath to slow down his fall.
  • Tactical Withdrawal: In his usual fights, Gamera retreats to fight another day, analyzing his enemy's weaknesses. Godzilla's not the type of kaiju to just let his opponent flee, however.
  • Taking You with Me: Tries to do this to Godzilla but Godzilla had other plans.
  • Time Abyss: 150 million years old.
  • The Strategist: Gamera has an IQ higher than most humans and has even repaired an alien aircraft. Gamera has been known to outsmart many of his opponents. However, this is normally done after he retreats from a battle. Death Battle does not allow a character to retreat and even then Godzilla has attacked fleeing opponents before (like Hedorah and King Ghidorah). Godzilla had no clearly exploitable weaknesses and could adapt or survive any of Gamera's attacks.
  • Turtle Power: A gigantic turtle Kaiju.
  • Wave-Motion Gun: The Mana Beam. But even this gigantic blast could not kill Godzilla.

    Batman vs. Captain America 


Batman: "From this moment on... none of you are safe..."

The Dark Knight

(For information on Batman that doesn't apply to his battle with Cap, see the Season 1 characters page.)

  • The Ace: In addition to his martial arts training, he has mastered escape artistry, swordfighting, detective skills, stealth, has a Photographic Memory, earned 12 Master's degrees, is an expert marksman, and has vast knowledge on how to exploit pressure points.
  • Ambiguously Human: In-universe. Boomstick repeatedly doubts he's merely a ludicrously strong and skilled man, and Wiz's best justification for his feats is that he might as well have been exposed to gamma rays a la The Incredible Hulk.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Bruce's suit is based on a bat to make criminals feel the same fear he feels for the animal.
  • Back from the Dead: The first defeated combatant to make a return. Also the first previously defeated opponent to return with a win.
  • Badass Normal: He doesn't have any superpowers, and while he trained to achieve Charles Atlas Superpowers, underneath the suit he can be taken down by a bullet like any mortal man.
  • Battle Boomerang: With his super-sharp Batarangs.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: With enough training, Batman was able to master every martial art known to man. Boomstick repeatedly questions whether or not Batman really isn't superhuman. Wiz points out that in the Bat's line of work he could easily have stumbled upon mutating gamma rays or something of that nature.
  • Combat Pragmatist: His forte, as usual, in this battle he attacks from all blind spots, exploits pressure points, and Steals Cap's shield, and uses it against him.
  • Composite Character: Uses more or less the same information granted from his fight with Spider-Man, as well as additional information from Screwattack adding in more research to their analysis, such as the Shock Gloves from Batman: Arkham Origins.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: After his parents were murdered, he vowed to protect the citizens of Gotham City.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: The first thing we see of him as he enters the battlefield.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: The Batclaw, used to snap Captain America's neck.
  • Heroic Mime: Much like his previous Death Battle, he doesn't say a single thing; unlike his opponent.
  • Innate Night Vision: His cowl contains gear that has night, infrared, and ultraviolet vision, as well as a triangulation imaging system that can create a 3D map of the world just by hacking into every cell phone on Earth.
  • Leitmotif: Molossus from Batman Begins, Main Theme from Batman: The Animated Series, Attack of the Batwing from Batman (1989), The Dark Knight Triumphant / End titles from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, and Dark Knight from The Dark Knight play during his analysis.
  • Made of Iron: To superhuman levels, he has withstood the vacuum of space for 24 seconds, and being buried 6 feet under in a coffin stuffed in a straight jacket deprived of sleep for days with Joker's latest venom toxin and a cocktail of hindering drugs in his system. Boomstick wonders aloud if he's even human at all because of this feat.
  • Neck Snap: With his grappling hook, he wraps around Cap's neck, tethers it around a streetlamp and... this trope.
  • Non-Fatal Explosions: His explosive gel doesn't fatally harm foes, it can only stun them. This is enough to catch Captain America off guard and let Batman go in for the kill.
  • Pressure Point: More knowledgeable in this than Cap. This helps him at the end, rendering Cap helpless.
  • Shock and Awe: His Shock Gloves, which are significantly deadlier than his suits' taser function, capable of puncturing kevlar and stopping Bane's heart. They don't do much in the fight due to Cap's shield having no conductivity and Cap's own resistance to shock, nullifying the gloves.
  • Smoke Out: Carries around several smoke pellets to supplement his stealth skills. He uses this to set up an ambush against Cap, as while he could "see faster" than Batman, this won't let him see through thick smoke.
  • Stealth Expert: He could disappear and reappear in an instant thanks to his mastery of stealth and the various gadgets he carries around his utility belt. This helps net him the win in the end. Since Batman is capable of hiding from the likes of Superman, there's no reason why he couldn't do the same against Cap.
  • Stone Wall: Slightly demonstrated with Batman's Batsuit. Captain America's strength is significantly lower than Spiderman's, so Batman was able to endure this fight long enough to discover Cap's weaknesses and adapt to the battle. Also, the Captain wore relatively lighter armor, meaning without his shield Batman had a slight advantage in endurance.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Explosive Gel.
  • Super Reflexes: Shown dodging a bullet and can dodge Darkseid's Omega Beams. This enables him to react and dodge nearly every one of Captain Amercia's attacks, giving Batman enough breathing time to think up a plan.
  • Super Senses: Batman uses gadgets in his cowl to give him sonar vision, radios, superhearing and other traits that increase his effectiveness in stealth, detection and ambush. It's a clear advantage over Cap, whose senses are not as extreme.
  • The Strategist: Batman is clearly more intelligent than Captain America in both tactics and knowledge, even if Cap is an effective commander. Batman was able to conclude that Cap's shield was too much of a threat, so Batman gained an advantage in the match by disarming and stealing the shield. He also confused and ambushed America by using his gadgets and stealth.
  • Terror Hero: He uses The thugs of Gotham City to start shaking in fear the moment they see his silhouette.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Batman is slightly physically slower and weaker than Cap but has a slight edge in skill, MASTERING all the martial art skills that he knows.
  • Unexplained Recovery: The episode makes no references to the results of Batman's previous match. He just appears from the shadows to battle Cap, as good as new. Since these battles are just a dramatization based on the research, one can say that the characters aren't actually fighting, and therefore no one's actually dying. Also, according to Max of Few Trades who is one of the members of the research team, this episode was planned out before Batman Vs Spider-man and was kept in reserve just for such an occasion as the hard drive failure that pushed back Godzilla Vs Gamera.
  • Utility Belt: It's where he keeps his gadgets, and seems to have everything he would need in a fight.

Captain America

Gabe Jones: "Who are you supposed to be?"
Captain America: "I'm... Captain America."

The Sentinel of Liberty

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: The "blade" being his shield, which can cut through adamantium.
  • Badass Normal: That Super Serum increased his abilities beyond the maximum potential for humans, but he is still susceptible to guns and knives like any human man.
  • Blinded by the Light: When Batman tosses a shield covered in explosive gel, the resulting detonation blinds Cap, leaving him off-guard to Batman.
  • The Cameo: In The Flash vs. Quicksilver. Also makes an appearance in Deadpool vs. Pinkie Pie, where Deadpool poses as Batman and knocks him out with his shield. Then cameos again during Black Widow's rundown in Black Widow vs. Widowmaker.
  • Captain Patriotic: He's the Trope Codifier of this, being created mostly as a reaction to most people's desire to fight the Nazis in World War II.
  • Composite Character: Clips of his tv, cartoon, film, video game and comic book incarnations are used together in his bio.
  • Drugs Are Bad: He defeated a group of villains called the Drug Lords, who were personifications of typical street drugs.
  • Eagle Land: When his analysis mentions Steve Rogers becoming Captain America, Cap's picture gets superimposed images of fireworks, guns, and a flying eagle while Boomstick shouts "'MERICA!"
  • Finishing Move: The Captain attempted his Hyper Charging Star attack famously used in his Capcom videogames, but Batman used a smoke bomb and grappling hook to escape the attack.
  • Fragile Speedster: To some degree when compared to Batman. Cap can run almost 50mph yet his body armor is either very light or entirely non-existent compared to Batman's bullet-resistant armor. Because of this, Cap needs to use his shield to block attacks.
  • Genius Bruiser: Intelligent, and can kick ass. He is skilled at every form of hand-to-hand combat known to man.
  • Geek Physiques: Before his super-steroids, Cap was a frail, short and sickly man. He had an encyclopedia of illnesses and potential vulnerability for most diseases. Most WW2-era facilities refused to accept him because of his frailty.
  • Groin Attack: Shown in his analysis to have given one to the Hulk, which impresses Boomstick for the sheer ballsiness of it.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Anyone unfortunate to be torso-shot by his shield, including Cap himself.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Batman tricks Captain America by spraying explosive jell on his shield. Cap expects the shield to ricochet or boomerang back to him, allowing Batman to throw the shield right at his feet without him immediately realizing the trap. After this Batman steals the shield, making Cap defenseless. Finally, he cuts America in half with the shield for good measure.
  • Human Popsicle: Cap fell into the Arctic Ocean and was frozen from the end of World War II until the modern-day (the exact date depending on when the comic or movie was created).
  • Hypocrite: In his rundown, the hosts lampshade that Cap promotes anti-drug use even though drugs are "the entire reason he became awesome".
  • Immigrant Parents: His parents were Irish immigrants.
  • Jumped at the Call: During World War II, he tried multiple times to enlist in the army, and was rejected each time until he signed up for Project: Rebirth.
  • Leitmotif: Captain America, Training the Supersoldier, Star Spangled Man, Captain America March, Invader's Montage and Triumphant Return from Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America's Theme from Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and Lemurian Star from Captain America: The Winter Soldier play during his analysis.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: His iconic Vibranium shield is a cornerstone of his fighting style, nearly indestructible, and can be thrown around like a boomerang. In the battle itself, this gave Cap the upper hand during the first half of the fight since Batman couldn't brute force his way past the shield until Batman used his mastery of stealth and trickery to disarm him.
  • McNinja: Boomstick classifies him as such because he knows ninjitsu.
  • Older Than They Look: He was born in 1920. After being frozen alive, he still looks like he's in his late 20s.
  • Pressure Point: Not as knowledgeable as Batman in this regard, but is still quite skilled in it. His inexperience compared to Bats renders him unable to counter Batman's own pressure point attacks.
  • Shield Bash: Commonly performs whacks, tackles, and punches with his shield as part of his fighting style.
  • Sickly Child Grew Up Strong: He was a skinny kid who aspired to fight for his country, but he was deemed unfit for service due to his weak build and multiple health problems. However, he was chosen for the US government's Project: Rebirth, a project in which he would be a test subject a super-soldier serum that would increase Steve's strength to beyond the pinnacle of human performance. The serum was a success, and he became one of America's strongest warrior.
  • Stone Wall: With his indestructible shield, Captain America has been able to survive many deadly opponents. Even Batman's endless variety of gadgets made it impossible to get through Cap's defense through brute force. But Batman's stealth and disarming skills allowed him to steal Cap's shield. With Cap wearing, at best, light Kevlar he couldn't survive Batman's stealth ambushes and plastic explosives.
  • Super Senses: Not to the extent as Spider-Man, but can pick up on sounds, smells, and sights far greater than the average human. This was an important point in the fight, Steve's senses aren't as worthy as the spider-sense, compare with Batman, who can sneak around Superman.
  • Super Serum: Steve was injected by one created by the US Government to make him one of their best soldiers against Nazi Germany.
  • Super Soldier: He was created as one to counter the Nazi threat in the 1940s.
  • Super Speed: Steve can run a mile in 73 seconds, over three times faster than mile run record holder Hicham Guerrouj.
  • Super Strength: He can lift 1100 pounds, twice as much as 2013's bench pressing record holder Eric Spoto.
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: Frequently throws his razor-sharp shield to and fro throughout his battles. Subverted in the fight itself where throwing away his shield is actually what costs Cap his victory.
  • Unbreakable Weapons: It's mentioned in the analysis that Cap's shield has only been broken by cosmic beings or Reality Warpers. Otherwise, it is impressive enough for Superman (the guy who can survive supernova explosions) to praise it and want one of his own. It even stopped the godly hammer of Mjolnir.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: To some degree against Batman. Captain America is slightly stronger and twice as fast as Batman but Batman has slightly superior skills and tactics than Cap.

    Tigerzord vs. Gundam Epyon 

Tommy the White Ranger, Saba, and the TigerZord

Tommy: "Saba, are you ready pal?"
Saba: "White Ranger, I'm ready when you are!"
Tommy: "All right! Tigerzord, power up!"
Tommy Voiced by: Chris Niosi
Saba Voiced by: Doug "Electricstar" Drury

The Sixth Thunderzord

  • Accidental Murder: While running a simple weapon systems check, by complete accident, they kill Noin. This in turn leads to the battle.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: During the match, Saba identifies the circle on the Epyon's chest as a weak spot and instructs Tommy to attack it, only to watch in shock as the Tigerzord's punch went tink.
    Tommy: What? He didn't explode!?
    Saba: Well, this defies all logic.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: As the Green Ranger, Tommy was put under Rita Repulsa's control to fight against the other Power Rangers. After being freed, he joined the team as the White Ranger.
  • Combining Mecha: It can combine with the other Thunderzord's to become the Mega Tigerzord, which is over 200 feet tall.
  • Cool Sword: Saba is a white and gold sword with a talking tiger pommel that can remote control the Tigerzord.
  • Curse Cut Short: Saba when he explodes
  • David vs. Goliath: The Goliath to Epyon's David because the Tigerzord is much bigger than Epyon, and the Mega Tigerzord even more so. As a further analogy to David vs. Goliath, Tigerzord, the Goliath, loses.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Both Tommy and Saba display some snark in the battle.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Years ago, Tommy was one of the potential contestants to fight the winner of the TMNT battle royale but lost out in votes to Zitz.
  • Energy Weapon: Can fire energy balls strong enough to destroy giant monsters. Saba is capable of shooting lasers on its own in addition to controlling the TigerZord.
  • Fartillery: Boomstick accuses the Tigerzord's tail-sword flame ability to be caused by this.
  • Finishing Move: The Phoenix Strike of the Mega Tigerzord. In the battle, Zechs is temporarily distracted when the Epyon System showed him the possibility of his Gundam being destroyed by this move. However, this meant that Zechs was prepared to dodge it when Tommy started using it in reality.
  • Finishing Stomp: Tommy attempts to crush Epyon underneath the Tigerzord's foot. It doesn't work.
    Tommy: Time to stamp out some evil!
  • Flaming Sword: Tommy can ignite the Golden Tiger Sword in battle.
  • Giant Foot of Stomping: Attempts to step on Epyon at one point, but fails due to Epyon jettisoning out just in time.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: The Tigerzord's upper half explodes...with Tommy and Saba in it.
  • Hot-Blooded: Tommy is quite excited in the fight.
  • Humongous Mecha: In Warrior Mode, the Tigerzord stands 152 feet/46.5 meters tall and weighs 150 tons.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: Saba controls the Tigerzord and often keeps Tommy in check when he's goofing off. He actively participates in the fight because he's Tommy's weapon and does indeed reign Tommy back in check near the beginning.
  • Leitmotif: Fight, Go Green Ranger Go!, White Ranger Tiger Power, and Zords from Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Hope for the World and Combat from Power Rangers Redux and Main Theme from Power Rangers Dino Thunder play during his analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Despite its huge size, the Tigerzord can move at ludicrous speeds thanks to Hyperspeed and the White Ranger's own superhuman capabilities (which the Tigerzord mimics and copies).
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Tigerzord's Sonic Booms are powerful roars that send giant enemies to their feet.
  • Mega Neko: In the words of Boomstick, the TigerZord is a "gigantic weaponized robo kitty"
  • Moment Killer: With an emphasis on "killer", The guys accidentally kill Noin right before she and Zechs were about to get intimate.
  • Motion Capture Mecha: The Tigerzord mimics Tommy's movements in battle in real-time.
  • Panthera Awesome: The TigerZord, of course.
  • Precision F-Strike: Saba lets out a loud "SON OF A BIIIII-" when the Tigerzord explodes.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni:
    • Tommy and Saba, the former being a Hot-Blooded martial artist, the latter being a more calm and logical talking weapon that reigns Tommy back in check at times.
    • Tommy is also the Red Oni to Zech's stoic blue.
  • Recruit Teenagers with Attitude: The Power Rangers were specifically assigned to "overbearing and over-emotional humans", Tommy included.
  • Sixth Ranger: The trope namer, and the trope codifier, Tommy was originally the evil Green Ranger before the other Rangers freed him from Rita's influence. He became the sixth Ranger again as the White Ranger to help the team fight against Lord Zedd (which are the powers he'll be using in this fight). Later on, he became the fourth ranger to a team of what was originally three in Dino Thunder.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: In the words of Wiz, Saba is... uniquely multilingual.
    Saba: That's right... none of you speaks bird. Now, take me over to the cages. Uh... squawk squawk, tweet squawk tweet?
    Boomstick: Everyone that just watched that is now dumber. Our bad.
  • Super Mode: Mega Tigerzord. It's powerful enough to outmatch Epyon in a straight fight, but one slash from a full-power Beam Saber is enough to put the Mega Tigerzord down.
  • Super Reflexes: Tommy's reflexes are calculated to be 32x greater than the average human's.
  • Super Speed: With the help of Hyperspeed, the Tigerzord can keep up with Epyon for the most part.
  • Super Strength: Tommy is approximately 32x stronger than the average human thanks to the morphing grid.
  • Super Toughness: As the Mega Tigerzord, it's durable enough to tank its own previously mentioned Finishing Move after it was deflected back at it and just look surprised. In the battle itself, it took Zechs using a full-powered Beam Sabre strike to actually land a blow that mattered in the end.
  • Talking Weapon: Tommy's sword Saba acts as the Zord's controls and advisor.
  • Theme Music Powerup: White Ranger Tiger Power starts playing when Tommy goes for the kill, only to watch in dismay as his punch to the Epyon's apparent weak point dealt no damage.
  • Transforming Mecha: Can transform between a Tiger and Warrior mode, the latter being the aforementioned 46.5 meters tall. Using the specs for the original Megazord, bottom left corner, as a guide implies that the Tigerzord's twice the height of its Sentai version, Won Tiger. note 
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Saba's voice actor for this battle describes it as, "An on-again-off-again upper-class American/British/Posh conglomeration accent" and mimics it for the fight.
  • Wrecked Weapon: The Tigerzord is not invincible, and enough damage can separate it from the Morphing Grid, incapacitating it. Epyon's fully charged beam saber is enough to cleave it in two.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: Hey look, the enemy has a glowing spot on its chest, it must be a weak point! Right? Right?

Zechs Merquise and the Epyon

Zechs: "Just watch me, I'm gonna live right to the bitter end! I'll live the hard life of a warrior!"
Zechs Voiced by: Stuart Schlomach

The Sixth Gundam

  • Ace Pilot: Zechs was a Colonel of the OZ military, valedictorian of a prestigious military academy, and sole pilot of the original Gundam prototype. His skill as a pilot is one of the reasons why Treize chose him to command dangerous prototype units like the Tallgeese. Also, his experience gave him an advantage over Tommy, who was drafted when he was a high-schooler.
  • And This Is for...: Right before Zechs destroys Tommy with the Beam Saber he shouts "For NOOOOOOIIIIIIIIIN!"
  • Angst: His character arc is balancing living the life of a soldier while keeping the Peacecraft's way of life. Even his relationship with Noin couldn't lighten him up. Played for laughs in the battle, where Noin finds him in an empty field agonizing over his past.
  • BFS: The Epyon's beam sabre is powered by a direct connection to its reactor, allowing it to increase size to massive levels; enough to cut an entire space station when fully charged.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Was this when he was allied with Treize.
  • Broken Pedestal: After Trieze staged a failed coup, Zechs became disillusioned with Treize's ideas of the politics of war and left OZ.
  • Close-Range Combatant: The Epyon was designed to fight with short-range in mind and possesses no long-range firepower when created. A pair of Vulcan guns were later added to its head, though these are ineffective against most other Humongous Mecha.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: The Epyon System, a modified ZEROnote  System installed in the Epyon, allows Zechs to see all possibilities in a fight. Unfortunately, this kind of mental bombardment sometimes causes the user to see hallucinations and could drive a less able person insane. While he was able to tell when the Tigerzord used its full arsenal, the side-effects showed up in the battle itself when he saw a hallucination of the Mega Tigerzord destroying the Epyon with the Phoenix Strike, preventing him from finishing the fight early. However, it did mean the Zechs was well-prepared when Tommy started using the Phoenix Strike in reality.
  • David vs. Goliath: The David to Tigerzord's Goliath because the Tiger zord is much bigger than Epyon, and the Mega Tigerzord even more so. As a further analogy to David vs. Goliath, Epyon, the David, wins.
  • Days of Future Past: The Gundam Wing storyline takes place in the future of 195 A.C.
  • Energy Shield: Uses the Epyon Shield to guard against Tommy's White Tiger Thunderbolt, though it knocks him back.
  • Fantasy Metals: Epyon's armor is made from Gundanium, a metal that is a stronger and lighter than titanium.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When Zechs summons Epyon, the Gundam awakens with glowing green eyes.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Zechs conquered his darkness after his final battle with Heero on the Libra, believing the Gundam Pilots would usher in a new age of peace. When Heero tried to sacrifice himself by destroying the Libra's generator, Zechs intervened, saying that the world needs someone like Heero, and destroyed the generator himself, nearly taking his life.
  • Honor Is Fair Play: Treize has a sense of honor, and this is reflected in Epyon's fighting style, being a close-ranged Gundam.
  • Hot Blade: The Heat Rod, a serrated chain whip that could be super-heated to slice through armor.
  • Humongous Mecha: Around 18 meters tall.
  • La Résistance: Ruled by a global government, Earth's space colonies created five mobile suits called Gundams to rebel against its tyranny. This inspired disgraced commander Treize Khushrenada to create his own Gundam.
  • Laser Blade: The Beam Sword, which is connected directly to the Epyon's power source, allowing Zechs to increase its size and power as needed. It is powerful enough to destroy a Space Station with, in the words of Boomstick, a "single awesome sword slice". In the battle itself, Zechs uses a similar full-powered sword slice to cut the Mega Tigerzord in half.
  • Leitmotif: Gundam Attack, Just Communication (Instrumental), Legend of Zero, Treize Kushrenada - The Man Who Makes History, and Zechs Comes from Mobile Suit Gundamwing play during his analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: A 57-foot-tall giant robot who can fly at high speeds and wields a laser-sword that once sliced through an entire space station. He kicks off the fight by slashing the Tigerzord, flying around at high speeds.
  • The Lost Lenore: Noin's death is what triggers the fight.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: The Epyon Shield, which in addition to providing extra protection, also houses the Heat Rod.
  • Morality Adjustment: After leaving Treize's side, Zechs switched sides throughout the series. He was "always fighting for the wrong cause by complete accident". He wished to bring peace to humanity by creating the The War to End All Wars, but after fighting protagonist Heero, was convinced that Heero and his friend would be able to carry out a new era of peace.
  • Ocular Gushers: Cries like this over the remains of Noin's destroyed Gundam after winning the fight.
  • Official Couple: He's Noin's boyfriend and later husband. Doesn't stop him from being brooding and angst-y, though.
  • Oh, Crap!: His reaction to the Mega Tigerzord.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: "I'LL BREAK YOUR FACE!!!!!"
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Wins the fight, but Noin is now dead, leaving Zechs to mourn the loss by crying over the remains of her Gundam.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After Noin is accidentally killed by the Tigerzord Zechs goes so berserk Tommy mistakes him for one of Zed's monsters.
  • Secret Identity: Zechs is really Milliardo Peacecraft, prince of the fallen Sanc Kingdom.
  • Secret Keeper: For a while, the only one who knew Zechs' secret was his girlfriend, Noin.
  • Super Speed: Can move at approximately 250 miles per hour.
  • Super Toughness: As a result of its Gundanium frame. One of the feats the analysis mentioned was how it survived being at the heart of the exploding Libra Space Station. In the battle, while the Epyon was knocked around a lot due to the size difference, most of the attacks of the Tigerzord failed to do significant damage to the Gundam. The exception is the Mega Tigerzord's Phoenix Strike, which the Epyon System predicted as destroying the Epyon if Zechs took a direct hit.
  • Transforming Mecha: Able to turn into a flight mode like a dragon from a humanoid form.
  • Theme Music Powerup: White Reflection starts playing when Zechs goes for the kill, dodging the Mega Tigerzord's Finishing Move and slicing it in half with a full-powered beam sabre.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Whereas Tommy fought against the protagonists due to Rita's brainwashing, Trieze manipulated Zechs' into furthering his goals.
  • Whip It Good: Possesses the Heat Rod, a chain whip that could be super-heated to burn through enemies or disarm them.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: The Epyon's Zero system relays combat information and possible battle futures to the pilot, while they ignore any distraction. This puts a lot of mental strain and can send a bad hallucination at critical points.

    Ryu vs. Scorpion 


Ryu:"My name is Ryu, and the ultimate power has awakened within me!"

The Wandering World Warrior

  • Arrow Catch: Snatches Scorpion's spear out of the air before the match starts.
  • Back from the Dead: In the alternate ending to M. Bison vs Shao Kahn, Ryu was killed by the evil duo. Now he finally gets to step into the ring against a Kombatant. This gives Ryu the dubious honour of being the first Death Battle contestant to be killed TWICE on screen.
  • Badass Arm-Fold: One of his trademark poses. He does this as Scorpion attacks him.
  • Barehanded Blade Block: When he blocks Scorpion's sword in his Evil Ryu form, he shatters it.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Not even his headband can contain them.
  • Blood Knight: He entered the first World Warrior tournament just to battle against people with different fighting styles. Fighting and self-improvement are all he lives for.
    Ryu: Neither of us have reached our true potential.
    Scorpion: As if that matters...
  • Bring It: After catching Scorpion's arrow, he beckons his fingers towards himself, saying "Come on!"
  • Circling Birdies: One good punch from Scorpion has him seeing stars.
  • Composite Character: He is based on the video games, anime, film, and manga versions.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: The Shun Goku Satsu, an attack in which an opponent's past evil deeds are turned against them and destroys their own soul. This was used to supposedly murder Gouken. It would have been enough to kill Scorpion, but Scorpion's evasiveness and Ryu's lack of experience using it hindered its effectiveness.
  • The Dark Side: After killing Ryu's master, Akuma tries to tempt Ryu to succumb to the Satsui no Hado. Fittingly, Wizard compares Ryu and Akuma's relationship to Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader.
  • Deader Than Dead: Anyone hit with the Raging Demon is destroyed to their very soul. This more or less happens to Ryu, because he is A. reduced to ashes, B. has had those ashes blown up by penguin-mode Scorpion and C. those ashes are in the netherworld.
  • Death-or-Glory Attack: His Shinku Hadouken uses up all his energy. Scorpion survives it and pays it back.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Fights barefoot, and one of his dislikes is "wearing shoes".
  • Doorstop Baby: Was abandoned by his parents and was raised by fighting master Gouken.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Makes an appearance in the alternate ending for Shao Kahn vs. M. Bison... where he and Liu Kang get killed by the two.
  • Energy Ball: The Hadouken, naturally.
  • Enlightenment Superpowers: Through enlightenment, Ryu gains access to the Power of Nothingness, a more powerful Super Mode than the Satsoi no Hadou.
  • Famous Last Words: After he thinks he defeated Scorpion with a Shinku Hadoken, he says, "I walk a path with no end." Unfortunately for him, Scorpion is Not Quite Dead.
  • Flash Step: In his Evil Ryu form, he "teleports" this way, allowing him to dodge attacks.
  • The Greatest Style: Ryu is a master of the Ansatsuken (or Assassin's Fist) fighting style. However, while it was originally designed for killing, Gouken's teachings altered to be less murderous.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He shouldn't have used up all his energy in that Shinku Hadouken.
  • Hurricane Kick: The Tatsumaki Senpukyaku is a gravity-defying helicopter kick.
  • Immune to Bullets: As Evil Ryu, bullets simply bounce off of him. In the battle, Scorpion's sword shatters when Ryu blocks it while in this mode.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: In his base form, he is neither lacking nor excelling in any combat aspects sans Ki manipulation. Evil Ryu on the other hand averts this by being heavy on offense.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: He's the latter half's Trope Namer for Pete's sake. A Shinku Hadouken while using the Power of Nothingness takes this form, reducing Scorpion to a skeleton.
  • Leitmotif: Dragon Fist and Lake Run from Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist, Ryu Stage -KOBU [Inspiration] from Street Fighter III, Evil Ryu Theme from Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Ryu vs. Akuma from Street Fighter IV, and Theme of Ryu from Marvel vs. Capcom 3 play during his analysis.
  • Lightning Bruiser: All of his forms beyond his base are this to some extent.
  • My Significance Sense Is Tingling: He can sense a person's own chi. In the fight he sees Scorpion coming from his teleportation several times.
  • No Body Left Behind: Ryu is disintegrated by Scorpion's hellfire leaving naught but a pile of ashes.
  • Oh, Crap!: The look on his face when Scorpion shows he's still alive after getting blasted to a skeleton is this in spades. It's turned Up to Eleven when he sees skeleton!Scorpion fire a massive Hellfire attack right at him...and he ends up being too shocked to even move.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted, as he's not the first guy named Ryu to appear on Death Battle. Also not the first guy named Ryu to die on Death Battle.
  • Post-Victory Collapse: He does this after he uses the Power of Nothingness to completely overpower Scorpion and reduce him to a skeleton with a Shinku Hadoken. Unfortunately, this wasn't enough to stop Scorpion, so Ryu was left wide open.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As Evil Ryu.
  • The Rival: Is referred to like this due to Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat's rivalry since the arcade days. Ryu himself is also a friendly rival to his childhood friend Ken Masters.
  • Shoryuken: The original user. His variants include the Shin and Messatsu Shoryukens.
  • Shotoclone: Technically averted since he's the original.
  • Sore Loser: Gave Sagat that huge scar after losing the World Warrior Tournament to him... while Sagat was offering him a hand to get back up. Though, to be fair, he was under the influence of the Satsui no Hadou and was not in his right mind.
  • Super Mode: His Power of Nothingness acquired through enlightenment acts as a more powerful alternative to the Satsoi no Hadou.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: The Satsui no Hadou "Surge of Murderous Intent" increases his power, strength, and speed at the cost of his humanity. It threatens to overtake him if he is pressed too hard. If it does he turns into Evil Ryu, a dark version of himself with brutal versions of his own moves and some from Akuma. Trying to hold back on this power has made him lose quite a few fights.
  • Super Speed: In his base form, he's fast enough to dodge bullets point-blank.
  • Super Strength: Even in his base form, he can lift and hold a several dozen-ton boulder. He also was the one to defeat the genetically engineered warrior Seth. In the fight itself, he dispersed one of Scorpion's projectiles with a single punch.
  • Super Toughness: Once survived being impaled bare-handed by Akuma.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: It's noted that while Evil Ryu has amazing power, Ryu has very little experience in that form. Which, alongside Scorpion's ninja techniques and teleportation abilities, rendered his ace in the hole, the Raging Demon, useless.
  • Walking the Earth: Has no place he calls home, travelling the planet in search of greater opponents and ways to continue training. Boomstick calls him a "Karate Hobo".


Scorpion:"I am Scorpion. Vengeance will be mine!"

The Ninja from Hell

  • The Atoner: It turns out the first Sub-Zero didn't kill his family. In atonement, he dedicated his life to protect Sub-Zero's younger brother.
  • Back from the Dead: He was born a human by the name of Hanzo Hasashi. Then his clan was slaughtered and he was murdered by Sub-Zero. His desire for vengeance was strong enough to allow him to return to the land of the living as an abomination of evil energy from the Netherrealm.
  • Badass Adorable: As a penguin with exploding eggs.
  • Breath Weapon: Can breathe a gout of powerful Netherrealm hellfire.
  • Butt-Monkey: After his family gets murdered, he ends up working for the man that killed them in the first place. Boomstick considers him "the Charlie Brown of Mortal Kombat".
  • Clothing Damage: The ultimate result of Ryu's Shinku Hadoken is that it seriously hurts Scorpion and fries his clothes, but it's not enough to kill him - especially with his growing strength from the energy of the Netherrealm.
  • Composite Character: Clips of his starring in cartoons comic books, and even his own cooking show are taken accounted for. No, we're not lying with the last one.
  • Cutting the Knot: Boomstick notes that Scorpion could just use his teleportation powers to send Ryu to a pit of lava, which really didn't matter since he ended up winning anyways.
  • Dem Bones: His Skull for a Head is the main example, and gets his flesh and organs disintegrated by Ryu, leaving only a skeleton...this doesn't kill him.
  • Devil's Job Offer: While in the Netherralm the sorcerer Quan Chi gave him an offer: if he was loyal to him, he would resurrect Scorpion to seek vengeance against Sub-Zero. Then it turned out that Sub-Zero was innocent, and the real murderer was Quan Chi.
  • Dragged Off to Hell: He can open gates to the Netherrealm to send his enemy there. Boomstick literally namedrops the trope while describing Scorpion. He does this in his fight with Ryu and it's what gives him his victory in the long run.
    Scorpion: "You will join me in hell!"
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He appeared as one of Shang Tsung's transformations during said combatants' battle with Akuma; several years before he got his own battle.
  • Everything's Better with Penguins: It's one of his transformation fatalities! which he uses to blow up Ryu's ashes.
  • Evil Laugh: While he's not truly "evil" per se, he can still be considered the bad guy in this fight due to instigating it, and he indulges in this quite a bit. He even does it as a skeleton, despite having none of the organs necessary to do so, after killing Ryu.
  • Feuding Families: Scorpion's clan, the Shirai Ryu, has had a long, blood-soaked rivalry with the Lin Kuei clan.
  • Field Power Effect: Scorpion grows stronger the longer he stays in the Netherrealm, which is a hazardous place for ordinary entities. This proved to be vital in his battle against Ryu. Since Ryu lacked a reliable way to take Scorpion out permanently and couldn't move the battlefield out of the Netherrealm, it was only a matter of time before Scorpion overpowered and outlasted Ryu.
  • Hellfire: His fire attacks are Netherrealm hellfire.
  • Highly Visible Ninja: Ran around in a bright yellow costume even as a human.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His iconic Kunai Spear is most closely related to a climbing tool and the highly impractical rope dart, yet he uses it in battle without the slightest issue because of his great skill.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: His Mugai Ryu, which he can teleport to his hand in a burst of flame.
  • Kill It with Fire: Hellfire to be exact. This is how he kills Ryu.
  • The Legions of Hell: He has been described as a Spectre, a Wraith, a Hellspawn, and an Evil Spirit among other things. Bottom line, he's an abomination of evil energy straight out of the Mortal Kombat equivalent of Hell.
  • Leitmotif: Lower Mines/The Pit from Mortal Kombat: Deception ', Scorpion's Theme and Reptile's Theme from Mortal Kombat 9, Soul Chamber from Mortal Kombat Trilogy, and Sub-Zero's Theme from Mortal Kombat: Legacy play during his analysis
  • Magic Knight: Mixes fire attacks, swordplay and hand-to-hand moves.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Being an undead wraith that could go back and forth from the Netherrealm means you'd have a hell of a time trying to kill him with only physical attacks. This proved to be Ryu's undoing. The Raging Demon would have been perfect against Scorpion, but Ryu's inexperience with it plus Scorpion's own evasive abilities means he'd have difficulty landing it properly, giving him no reliable way to put Scorpion out of commission.
  • Ninja: The only MK 'ninja' to be born in Japan.
  • "Not Making This Up" Disclaimer: A note saying "Yes... this is real..." pops up during the video of Scorpion hosting his own cooking show.
  • Not Quite Dead: He is left seemingly dead by Ryu's Shin Hadoken but he was alive enough to land the killing blow.
  • Off with His Head!: His Spine Rip fatality: He uses his bare hands to rip his opponent's head off their body, spine included.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Gets punched by Ryu so hard his skull cracks, and still keeps going, just like the modern Mortal Kombat games' X-Ray moves.
  • Palette Swap: Invoked by his clan's garb to mock the Lin Kuei.
  • Papa Wolf: He was absolutely outraged at his wife and son's deaths.
  • Playing with Fire: Gained control over fire after coming back from the Netherrealm.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: I WILL CRUSH YOUR BONES! Said before reducing Ryu to a pile of ashes.
  • Punch Catch: After getting knocked off the mountain, Ryu closes in to finish him, however, Scorpion unexpectedly catches Ryu's fist and teleports them both to Hell.
  • Revenge: This is the only reason he walks among the living. As a corporeal spirit of vengeance and rage, his only mission is to right whatever wrong is done to him by any means. Unfortunately, this makes him susceptible to manipulation (as shown when Quan Chi dupes him into killing Sub-Zero, amidst the latter's protests).
  • Roaring Rampageof Revenge: Against the original Sub-Zero, who he thought murdered his wife and child.
  • Scary Scorpions: Transforms into a giant one in one of his animalities.
  • Skull for a Head: Can rip off his mask and face to expose his flaming skull.
  • Stock Ninja Weaponry: In addition to the Kunai Spear, he wields the Mugai Ryu, a katana, longswords, and an axe.
  • Stripped to the Bone: A possible effect of his hellfire. In the fight, it happens to him courtesy of Ryu's Shin Hadoken but this doesn't end him.
  • Teleport Spam: He frequently teleports around the battlefield to dodge Ryu's attacks or catch him in a surprise attack.
  • Turn Out Like His Father: His father forbade Hanzo from joining the Shirai Ryu, in hopes of sparing him from a life of murder. As Hanzo grew older, he joined the clan to support his new family, becoming one of their most deadly assassins.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Nothing, not even death, can stop Scorpion from getting vengeance for his slain clan.
  • Used to Be a Sweet Kid: Hanzo Hasashi was not always a deadly ninja with pyrokinesis; he was the son of a deadly assassin. His father
  • Villains Out Shopping: Just because he's an enraged ninja from Hell doesn't mean he can't enjoy doing things like playing baseball, basketball and cooking!
  • Weaponized Teleportation: He can teleport people to the Netherrealm with him, which is not a safe place for most people. It's also pointed out by Boomstick at the end that, if Scorpion wanted to, he could have killed Ryu earlier by teleporting him into one of the Netherrealm's many lava pools instead of a solid platform.
  • Who Needs Their Whole Body?: Getting reduced to a skeleton hardly slowed down the Netherrealm-boosted Scorpion.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Scorpion's sword shatters against Evil Ryu's fist.
  • You Will Not Evade Me: His signature Spear attack sticks his enemy with a kunai and drags them back with an attached rope.
    Get over here!

    Deadpool vs. Deathstroke 


Deadpool: "Oh, I'm sorry! Please continue talking about how great I am!"
Voiced by: Curtis "Takahata101" Arnott

The Merc With A Mouth

  • An Arm and a Leg: He gets both of those chopped off at once, though his Healing Factor allowed him to put them back after an... embarrassing moment getting them mixed up.
  • Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Wizard thinks so, but Deadpool's not overconfident, he's just very well aware of how good he is!
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Deathstroke has an inferior healing factor to Deadpool's own, and only one eye. Guess where Deadpool shoots him to gain an advantage
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: He actually has ADD, which can distract him, even when in a battle.
  • Berserk Button: He wasn't very happy about Deathstoke being worth 10 dollars more than him. And then he called him "predictable"...
  • Body Horror: Even after all of Weapon X's testing, he still has cancer and looks like a walking tumor.
  • Boom, Headshot!: He takes a few of them, but it means nothing because of his Healing Factor.
  • The Cameo: He shows off some sweet dancing skills at the end of Samus vs. Boba Remastered!
  • Canada, Eh?: Wade is Canadian. Unfortunately for him, it's also where Weapon X is located.
  • Chess Master: Don't let his goofiness fool you, he is always thinking 5 steps ahead in everything he does. Just ask the X-Men about the time he executed a plan to make them look good that they never saw coming.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He's completely insane, with his oddities catching even the most well-trained heroes off guard.
  • Complete Immortality: He was cursed by Thanos to be unable to truly die.
  • Composite Character: Death Battle gave him Dreadpool's Carbonadium katana treated both Deadpools as the same, which cinched the fight.
  • Confusion Fu: He's so unpredictable that he bested Taskmaster in a 1-on-1 fight, a guy whose entire schtick is being an Instant Expert of anything he sees, even if it's on video. And he did it with DANCE!
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Was able to take out an entire legion of ninjas while talking on the phone.
  • Cool Car: Drives one at the end of the fight, with Deathstroke's head as a hood ornament.
  • Dance Battler: Breakdances in the middle of the fight, all while getting a few good hits in.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: And the moral of the story is... Deadpool wins!
  • Dual Wielding: Uses both his hands, whether it's sword-fighting or gun-play.
  • Expy: He was created as a direct parody of Deathstroke.
  • Fan Disservice: He exposes Wiz and Boomstick to his naked body at the end of his analysis.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: He knows he's in a comic, and a cartoon, and a webseries... and yes, he's aware of the viewers at home. His entire episode just wouldn't have been fun to watch had he not stepped into the analysis portion and gave the hosts what for! He also gets the honor of declaring when the "FIGHT" begins!
  • The Gadfly: He gets a kick out of annoying the hosts, even scribbling in some info during the breakdown or taunting Boomstick about his ex.
  • Guns Akimbo: Several times in the fight.
  • Hammerspace: With his Magic Satchel, he can bring along much more weaponry than he appears to.
  • Healing Factor: Due to Weapon X's experiments, he can literally pull himself back together, popping his arms and legs back into place. This is played for drama in his backstory, as his Healing Factor has made his cancer irremovable, since his cells can regenerate faster than the cancer can kill him.
  • Heroic Wannabe: He always wanted to be a superhero, but settled for a job as a mercenary. After finishing Wade's analysis, Wizard reflects that he ending up living his dream of becoming the next best superhero.
  • I Call It "Vera": His machine guns are named "Butter" and "I Can't Believe Its Not Butter."
  • Iron Butt Monkey: He takes a lot of damage, usually for the sake of the audience's amusement, but you can always expect him to crack a joke and laugh it off.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: His prefers katanas over any other blade. Deathstoke breaks four of them, but Wade had the Carbonadium Sword to back him up.
  • Leitmotif: Deadpool's Theme 8 Bit (Instrumental) by Bulby, Wade Goes To Work and Deadpool from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, It Is A Trap from Deadpool, Deadpool's Theme from Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and (Old) MvC3 - Deadpool's Theme (Le Scar Remix) by RogerLH play during his analysis.
  • Meaningful Rename: In Weapon X, the test subjects held a betting ring called the "deadpool", where they would wager how long each subject would survive the experiments. Having survived the test and gaining superhuman abilities, Wade returned to mercenary life and donned the name Deadpool.
  • More Dakka: Loves going into battle guns blazing.
  • Motor Mouth: They call him "The Merc With The Mouth" for a reason. He can talk on and on and on about nothing at all... and that's not getting into the voices in his head.
  • One-Hit Polykill: By shooting Deathstroke's eye through his own hand.
  • Oh, Crap!: Twice- when he's trapped on a car's windshield in rush-hour traffic while Deathstoke shoots at him and when a flaming transport truck is hurtling towards him.
  • Power Nullifier: His carbonadium sword gives my enemies healing factors the bird. After all, it's how he wrecked Logan's shit, right? Guess what happens to Slade?
  • Professional Killer: He is a mercenary, after all.
  • The Power of Rock: Deathstroke couldn't handle the sweet rap dance moves of D-Pooly.
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: "All of the children in the audience, cover your eyes!"
  • Quick Draw: He is mentioned to be fast enough to kill 7 Hydra agents at once.
  • Rant-Inducing Slight: Why does he open up a can of verbal whoopass on Deathstroke? His bounty is worth ten bucks more than him. Does he prove why they screwed that up!
  • Really Gets Around: How many other people can say that they've got it on with Death herself...and Boomstick's ex-wife?
  • Shoryuken: Does it to Deathstroke. It's a reference to Marvel vs. Capcom 3, which is a reference to when he socked Shadowcat in the comics with an uppercut, that he stole from that combatant from the last episode: Ryu.
  • Sliding Scale of Silliness vs. Seriousness: His goofiness obscures his violent history and dark backstory. After being diagnosed with cancer, he was offered a cure by Weapon X. He was endlessly and painfully experimented on
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: Says Wizard. He can be too reliant on his Heal Factor and become careless in battle
  • Super Toughness: He can endure and heal from practically anything since he has a strong Healing Factor. He survived a skyscraper falling on top of him, having his heart ripped out, his head blown up, and his body melting into mush. The hosts deduced that he had a stronger Healing Factor and could take anything Slade gave out.
  • Talkative Loon: According to Slade, this makes him easily predictable.
    Deadpool: Oh, you're kidding me? I'm predictable?! I'm just getting warmed up!
  • Teleport Spam: Thanks to a nifty little teleporter he has. And after he took Deathstoke's eye, he used it to get the drop on him!
  • Torso with a View: Deathstoke makes one, but he's able to heal from it with his Healing Factor.
  • Troll: Well, duh! Who else would he be without this trope? He gets major kicks pissing off Wizard, Boomstick and Deathstroke in the episode.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Because of his popularity, he can be spotted on t-shirts, internet memes, and as a cosplay subject at nerd conventions.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Four of his katanas get destroyed by Deathstroke.


Deathstroke: "I am the thing that keeps you up at night. The evil that haunts every dark corner of your mind. I will never rest, and neither will you."
Voiced by: Jason Marnocha

The Terminator

  • 90% of Your Brain: The comics state that he can use 90% of his brain, unlike normal humans. Wizard finds this statement to be ridiculous.
    Wizard: If we really only used 10% of our brains, we'd be about as dumb as sheep.
    Boomstick: You're a sheep!
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Cuts a car in half in a single swing at one point.
  • Arch-Enemy: To the Teen Titans.
  • Battle Couple: He kindled a relationship with his superior, Adeline Kane. Not only did he train under her, he fought alongside her. They got married and had a child with her in mere months. Their relationship didn't last, however...
  • Boom Stick: His Energy Lance can fire concussive laser blasts that he uses to blow a hole through Deadpool.
  • Bounty Hunter: Works as a freelance mercenary, and wants to claim the $5 million on Deadpool's head. Wade's more than happy to oblige, if only to claim the bounty on Slade's head too (which is $10 more).
  • Blade Spam: Delivers one to Deadpool during the battle, which seemed to have been inspired by Taskmaster's Aegis Counter.
  • The Cameo: Appears as a dancer at the end of Samus vs Boba remastered, alongside Deadpool.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Like Wade, Slade has taken down multiple groups of men all by himself.
  • Cool Sword: His promethium sword. Deadpool steals it and stabs Deathstroke with it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Compared to Deadpool's wacky humor, this is his shtick.
    Deathstroke: "It's your lucky day." referring to Deadpool's comment about why he (Deadpool) is ten dollars less than him. "I can show you."
  • Dual Wielding: Wields two machine guns.
  • Energy Weapon: His Energy lance can shoot lasers. in the fight, a blast from it knocks Deadpool onto a moving truck.
  • Evil Counterpart: As Wiz and Boomstick noted; Deathstroke is, in many ways, an evil Captain America gone wrong. Both are super-soldiers who act as patients to an untested project meant to push the individual to their physical and mental peak, both form a relationship with a female peer during their rookie years, and both have an iconic weapon forged using powerful Fantasy Metals in their worlds (Steve's shield is made using vibranium laced with adamantium, while many of Slade's equipment is made from Nth metal and promethium) that are also known to be incredibly durable. The only difference between them is that Slade chose to be a heartless mercenary while Steve chose to be a patriot hero. It can even be argued Slade is a deconstruction of Steve's character.
  • Eye Scream: Had his right eye shot out by his wife in a fit of insanity and Deadpool shoots out the other.
  • Fantasy Metals: His armor is made of Nth metal, which is (another) metal that's stronger and lighter than titanium. Also, it is composed of promethium. While promethium is a real metal, DC's fictional version can absorb energy, is very durable, and can regenerate.
  • Handicapped Badass: Missing one eye doesn't slow him in the slightest. Two, on the other hand, is pushing it.
  • Healing Factor: Were not as good as Deadpool's, it does allow him to recover from stuff like having his brain blown to smithereens and even allowing him to come back from the dead. His suit has one too. Deadpool's Carbonadium sword made short work of that.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Deadpool runs him through with his own sword.
  • Leitmotif: Inhospitable Island / Deathstroke and This Ends Tonight from Arrow, Main Theme from Injustice: Gods Among Us, Deathstroke Theme from Batman: Arkham Origins, and Robin vs. Slade from Teen Titans play during his analysis.
  • Lodged-Blade Recycling: After getting stabbed by his own sword, pulls it out. He's worse for wear though, even with his Healing Factor.
  • Master Swordsman: Very capable with that sword of his.
  • Military Superhero: He joined the army when he was 16, fighting in the Korean War. Under the tutelage of Captain Adeline Kane, he became a master of boxing, jiujitsu, karate, ninjutsu, and sword fighting.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Rarely speaks throughout the fight and at one point gives Deadpool a brief "reason you suck" speech.
    Deathstroke: If you spent half as much time concentrating as you do talking perhaps you'd be less predictable.
  • Off with His Head!: On the receiving end. Deadpool later takes it as a hood ornament.
  • Oh, Crap!: Has this reaction when he realizes Deadpool took his sword.
  • Pop the Tires: As they fight on top of a bus, Deathstroke shoots its tires to trip up Deadpool. As it crashes, traffic goes flying, forcing the mercenaries to fight on the vehicles thrown into the air.
  • Rage Breaking Point: While he's normally a calm tactician in battle, he can get violently angry in moments of extreme pain. After Deadpool shoots his eye out, he swings his sword blindly, growling like a wild animal.
  • Stone Wall: Deathstroke's heavy body armor and minor healing factor has made him survive life-threatening injuries, allowing him to endure longer than most other characters. But while his armor was strong enough to completely resist Deadpool's Cuttin' Time Hyper Combo and his endurance allowed him to just barely recover from getting stabbed in the chest, Deathstroke could not outlast the virtually immortal Deadpool who has a clearly superior healing factor and so could endure longer despite wearing no armor at all.
  • Sniper Rifle: One of several weapons that make up his arsenal. He snipes Deadpool in the head with it after Deadpool survives the torso shot from the Energy Lance.
  • The Strategist: As mentioned during his analysis, multiple members of the Justice League consider him the best tactician on the planet. While this helps him for most of the fight, Deadpool eventually proved to be too unpredictable even for him.
  • Super Soldier: An experiment that tried to make him resist enemy truth serums basically made him into an evil Captain America. The analysis even contains similar notes.
  • Super Senses: He can process information nine times more efficiently than a normal human. He can also "see faster" than muggles, which Wiz insists is not a real thing.
  • Super Toughness: Has survived an explosion on a nuclear submarine.
  • Sword and Gun: Has a sword fight and gunfight against Deadpool with his Promethium Sword in one hand and a pistol in the other.
  • Telescoping Staff: He uses his energy lance in close combat as a bo-staff in the fight proper before shooting Deadpool into oncoming traffic with it.
  • Trick Bomb: His Super Bomb is a modified flash-bang grenade laced with Kryptonite.
  • Unstoppable Rage: He gets violent outbursts of rage when he's in extreme pain, which may help or hinder him depending on his opponent. This led to his defeat in the battle against Deadpool.
  • Walking Armory: Handguns, machine guns, sniper rifles, a BFS, and an energy staff.
  • Worthy Opponent: Deadpool admits he is this, likely due to his knowledge that he was heavily inspired by Slade. Whether Slade agrees is up for debate.
    Deadpool: "I gotta say, it's kind of an honor to get the snot beaten outta me by you of all people, bruises aside of course."
    Deathstroke: "Let's see what kind of mark this leaves on you." Blows a hole through Deadpool's chest with his energy lance.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Besides the fact that he is a major enemy of the Teen Titans, he once blew off Impulse's knee with a shotgun.
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: His eye, which was shot out by his enraged wife. This was Lampshaded by Boomstick during the analysis:
    Boomstick: Question, Wizard. If he has a Healing Factor, how come he's still missing that eye?
    Wiz: Well, no one knows, Boomstick. But perhaps not even a Healing Factor can repair the deepest of emotional wounds.
    Boomstick: Oh, that's bullshit!
