    Terry Bogard vs. Burai Yamamoto 

Terry Bogard

Bural Yamamoto

    Akuma / Oni vs. Kenpachi Zaraki 


  • An Arm and a Leg: In Round 3, Zaraki's bankai slices off his right arm at the shoulder.
  • Barehanded Blade Block: Does this to Kenpachi's sword, disarming him in the process. He somehow has it again in time for Round 2.
  • Blood Knight: Picks a fight with Kenpachi over being told to move out of his way.
  • Cyborg: He cameos at the end of M. Bison vs God Rugal as Cyber-Akuma.
  • Determinator:
    • Gets an arm cut off and his chest slashed open by Kenpachi's sword, but continues fighting nonetheless.
    • He also wins Round 3 while missing a limb and bleeding out from a major injury, though he collapses soon after.
  • Finishing Move: Demon Armageddon, which he uses to send Kenpachi flying over the horizon after launching him into the air, Misogi to knock Kenpachi out again as Oni, and his trademark Shun Goku Satsu to finish Kenpachi off for good.
  • Ground Punch: The Kongou Kokuretsuzan.
  • Mutual Kill: In Round 3, Oni hits Kenpachi with his Shun Goku Satsu before kicking him into a tree, but collapses into unconsciousness immediately afterwards due to his injuries. He even falls off the podium during the victory screen.
  • One-Winged Angel: Transforms into Oni in response to Kenpachi powering up for Round 2.

Kenpachi Zaraki

  • The Berserker: His bankai turns him into an insane oni only capable of unrelentingly attacking his opponent.
  • BFS: His Zanpakuto, Nozarashi, is a nodachi as long as he is tall. Its shikai form is a massive cleaver with insane cutting power.
  • Blood Knight: Is clearly enjoying his bouts with Akuma.
  • Catch and Return: Casually tosses a Hadoken back at Oni.
  • Defiant to the End: Even when he's about to get hit by the Shun Goku Satsu, Kenpachi still puts in the effort to throw one last punch.
  • Flash Step: Unlike most Soul Reapers, Zaraki doesn't know how to use shunpo. He's fast enough that he doesn't have to.
  • I Am Not Left-Handed: Ken gets serious for Round 2. It's still not enough to beat Oni.
  • Protected by a Child: Yachiru picks him up after the end of Round 2.
  • Super Mode: He uses his bankai (incorrectly depicted with his Zanpakuto's shikai form) in Round 3, turning him into a crimson-skinned oni with insane strength.
  • A Twinkle in the Sky: How he gets launched out of the battlefield, courtesy of Akuma.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Kenpachi lost all three rounds to Akuma and died in the final round, but his opponent won't be getting up anytime soon thanks to Ken severing his arm and slicing him at the shoulder.

Yachiru Kusajishi

  • Badass Adorable: She looks like a young girl, but she is the Squad 11 Lieutenant and Zaraki's Zanpakuto Spirit.
  • Heroic Fire Rescue: She rescues Kenpachi from a lava flow.

    Captain Falcon vs. Captain Commando 

Captain Falcon

  • Badass Driver: Naturally for a character coming from a racing game series.
  • Bring It: "Show me your moves!"
  • Cool Car: The Blue Falcon, which Captain Falcon uses to take out Mack, Ginzu and Baby Head, along with helping to land the finishing blow on Captain Commando.
  • Elemental Punch: Falcon Punch, Raptor Boost and Falcon Dive. Technically, the Falcon Kick as well.
  • Playing with Fire: As a result of his pyrokinetic attacks.
  • Super Speed: At the very end, he outruns the Blue Falcon to land one last Falcon Punch which defeats his opponent.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Falcon throws a chunk of rock at Baby Head's... er, head, after being launched back into a boulder by him and the rest of the team's Captain Sword.

Captain Commando (With Mack the Knife, Ginzu the Ninja, and Baby Head)

  • Assist Character: Mack, Ginzu, and Baby Head help out Commando in the fight.
  • Child Prodigy: Baby Head's only a baby, and yet he designed his own robot.
  • Spin Attack: Mack spins in the air with his knives to attack.

    Batman vs. Albert Wesker 


  • Badass Cape: Batman wears a black scalloped cape as part of his costume, which he can use to glide.
  • Deadly Disc: Uses motorised sawblade-like Batarangs later on that can be thrown or wielded as melee weapons.
  • Gory Discretion Shot: Wesker kills him after the screen turns black, hinted by blood splattering on the screen. By extension, this makes him the first One Minute Melee combatant to undeniably die after losing.
  • One-Man Army: Takes out all of Wesker's armed goons by himself.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: "The gloves are off!"
  • Time Bomb: Uses an Explosive Batarang to take out the last of Wesker's armed henchmen. He tries them again against Wesker, but Wesker proves to be too fast to hit with them.

Albert Wesker

  • Bond One-Liner: "I told you: I was the only worthy one."
  • Bring It: "I'll play with you."
  • Bullet Time: Dodges Batman's Batarangs this way in the climactic brawl.
  • Cool Shades: They get knocked off about half-way through, but he puts on another pair shortly afterwards.
  • Finishing Move: Defeats Batman with the Phantom Dance—starting with a combination of fast teleporting kicks, before launching him upward, teleporting above him and stomping him through a stone floor.

    Kim Kaphwan vs. Juri Han 

Kim Kaphwan

Juri Han

  • Blood Knight: Picks on Kim because he looked like she'd give him a good fight.
  • Kick Chick: Also uses mostly kicks.

    Meta Knight vs. Zero 

Meta Knight


    Bowser vs. Dr. Eggman 


Dr. Eggman

  • Acrofatic: Not quite to Bowser's level, but he is a surprisingly fast runner despite being overweight- as shown when escaping from Bowser.
  • A Handful for an Eye: After being pulled out of his Mecha by Bowser, he throws dirt in Bowser's eyes; allowing him enough time to run away and quickly get back into it.
  • Badass Boast: Also has one before the fight.
    "We'll see who's the "bub" when I make Turtle Soup out of you!"
  • The Cameo: He later reappears in Knuckles vs Wario, flying by in his Eggmobile to steal the Master Emerald from Knuckles after he's done fending Wario off from it.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Throws dirt into Bowser's eyes to escape from him after being forcibly removed from his Mecha at one point.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Was working with Bowser before the events of the battle, but betrayed him after completing his new mech, intending to defeat him, along with both Mario and Sonic, to take over his kingdom.
  • Evil Laugh: Gets to do his trademark "OH HO HO HO" laugh upon explaining his plans to defeat Bowser, Mario and Sonic and turn Bowser's Kingdom into Eggmanland in the Prologue.
  • Evil Versus Evil: Against Bowser, another villain
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Bowser uses his own missiles to blow the arms off his Mecha, incapacitating it.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Uses an Egg Walker-style Spring hidden in his Mech's chassis to knock Bowser back at one point.
  • Mini-Mecha: The Battle-Egg Mech V1, which he uses to fight Bowser.
  • Pre-Asskicking One-Liner: When firing missiles at Bowser—even if it does ultimately backfire on him, but kudos to him for at least trying.
    "Bombs away!"
  • Shock and Awe: The electrified drill is capable of firing bolts of lightning.
  • This Is a Drill: The Mech he pilots is armed with an electrified one.
  • Villain Team-Up: Had one with Bowser before the events of the battle, but as it turns out, he secretly developed his Battle Egg Mech V1 to defeat not only Mario and Sonic, but Bowser as well to take over his Kingdom and make it part of Eggmanland.

    Deadpool vs. Deathstoke 


  • Badass Boast: "Oh, I'm gonna have fun tearing you apart!"
  • Improbable Weapon User: Weren't expecting me to go all Chun-Li and use my couch as a weapon, were ya?
  • Ludicrous Gibs: I got blasted by Stroke's Sniper Rifle, this forced me to forfeit the match and give ol' one-eyed Bart the victory. Ah, well, at least I killed him in the main show. All he did was knock me out of commission for a bit.
  • Losing Your Head: The good thing about healing factors is, they let you survive even when said Rifles have blown you to bits!


  • Badass Boast: "That's what I came here for. And you and I know damn well that I'm not leaving without it."
  • Catch and Return: Throws one of Deadpool's Grenades back at him before before kicking him away just as it explodes.
  • Dynamic Entry: Drops into the building via helicopter, before exploding open the door to Deadpool's lair.
  • Guns Akimbo: Much like in their actual Death Battle, uses this to stop Deadpool's bullets in mid-air.
  • Ludicrous Gibs: Blasts Deadpool to pieces with his Sniper Rifle to take the win. Deadpool's head survives, but for added insult to injury, he kicks it away like a football.
  • Pistol-Whipping: Clubs Deadpool several times with his Sniper Rifle in between shooting him.
  • Stone Wall: His armor helps him to tank barrages of bullets.
  • Sniper Rifle: Is able to shoot Deadpool with it multiple times whilst throwing it, and is eventually able to use it to blow the Merc With the Mouth to pieces for the win.
  • Telescoping Staff: One of his signature weapons. In the fight itself, he throws it like a boomerang, hitting Deadpool multiple times.

    Dante vs. Ragna the Bloodedge 



  • Opening a Can of Clones: The skill-set this Ragna has seems to indicate it's not the original Ragna. He's found by Dante surrounded by three defeated Hakumens, presumably clones as well. Judging from the green, red, and blue lights he absorbed from the defeated Hakumens, he got the copies by beating them.
  • Palette Swap: This Ragna has light-blond hair and white clothes, possibly to help distinguish Ragna from Dante, since they both have white hair and wear red.
  • Single-Stroke Battle: How he ends the fight after using the Azure Grimoire.

    Mewtwo vs. Frieza 


  • Ambiguous Gender: Like most legendary Pokémon, it has no actual gender- although there have been both masculine and feminine depictions of the character.
  • Barrier Warrior: Barrier/Protect. It does do a good job of stopping Frieza's Death Bullets, but Frieza warps around it and attacks Mewtwo directly instead.
  • Blood Knight: Due to being engineered to be the ultimate Pokémon, it enjoys fighting and shows little restraint against opponents.
  • Casting a Shadow: Shadow Ball.
  • Catch and Return: Mewtwo stops one of Frieza's Ki Blasts and fires it back at him- although this mostly serves just to anger him enough to use the Death Ball on it.
  • The Cameo: It later makes an appearance in Mbison vs. God Rugal, where it's seen clad in its Team Rocket armor from Pokémon: The First Movie and floating in a stasis tube in the laboratories of Shadaloo. Given the circumstances, it's very likely that Shadaloo captured and modified it after it was defeated by Frieza.
  • Kill It with Fire: Is charred by Frieza's Death Ball- although because it does remain in one piece afterwards with no blood or anything, it's not made explicitly clear whether or not it actually died or simply fainted like in its own series.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: Mewtwo is one of the strongest Pokemon in existence, but even with this, every Pokémon is weak compared to Frieza's planet-destroying power. It still puts up a fight, though.
  • Mind over Matter: One of the most powerful Psychic Pokémon around, and makes use of its power by ripping up a series of large boulders from the ground and hurling them at Frieza.
  • Psychic Powers: Psychic-type.
  • Spanner in the Works: Mewtwo comes out of nowhere just as Frieza's got all the Dragon Balls. Too bad he couldn't do much against him.
  • Ultimate Life Form: Designed by scientists on Cinnabar Island to be the most powerful Pokémon in the World.


    Sakuya Izayoi vs. Dio Brando 

Sakuya Izayoi

Dio Brando

  • An Arm and a Leg: Both he and The World gets their left arm chopped off at one point. He attaches it back, though not before bashing Sakuya with it.
  • Back for the Dead: Returns in "Jotaro Kujo vs. Kenshiro", only to be defeated by Kenshiro before the actual fight starts.
  • Car Fu: Attempts to kill Sakuya with a bus before the fight begins and later attempts finish her off by crushing her with his iconic steamroller. While it looks like it worked at first, she managed to get out from under it before it did.
  • Fighting Spirit: His Stand, The World.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Dio's infamous steamroller attack actually pushed the Luna Dial clock towards the time-frozen Sakuya, which allowed her to get the upper hand.
  • Not Quite Dead: He's revealed to have survived in "Jotaro Kujo Vs Kenshiro".
  • Pummel Duel: Happens right in the beginning, with Dio using The World's Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs to counter Sakuya's Blade Spam.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Mainly from The World, but he also does it, mainly to pummel a bus and a steamroller until they explode.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He gets quickly offed before Jotaro and Kenshiro fought, but he's the reason why the two started fighting.
  • Time Stands Still: The World allows him to freeze time. This, combined with Sakuya's time-freezing powers, allowed the battle to drag pass the minute mark.
  • Worthy Opponent: Gives Sakuya "a little credit" when he thinks he's killed her. Unfortunately for him, she wasn't done just yet.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Pretended to be dead until he could find someone to suck dry and heal his wounds. He would've succeeded, if not for the fact that he ran into Kenshiro, of all people.

    Dan Hibiki vs. Hercule Satan 

Dan Hibiki

  • Adaptational Badass: Thanks to the "No research" part of One Minute Melee, Dan, despite losing, ends up doing far better against Hercule here than in his Death Battle match. Dan is able to pull off a Haoh Gadoken that doesn't dissipate and is able to blow up a car and even pulls off legitimate Ansatsuken moves like the Hadouken and Tatsumaki Senpukyaku. Towards the end of the battle, he is able to grab Hercule's arm and was prepared to deliver the finishing blow. It's Hercule tricking him into accepting an explosive as a gift and then clumsily tripping over it when he tries to get away that does him in.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Blows up a car with Haoh Gadoken.
  • Paper Tiger: Tries to bluff his way out of the fight by intimidating Hercule, who's doing the same thing. Their escalating bluffs eventually lead to them fighting.
  • Pink Is for Sissies: Hercule calls Dan a "pink pajama-wearing monkey".
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Lost the fight, but his unconscious body falls on and knocks Hercule out afterwards.

Hercule Satan

  • Afro Asskicker: Completely outclassed in his home series, but he does pretty good against a dude who can shoot lasers from his fists here.
  • Jet Pack: Uses it to travel quickly and give his stronger attacks a needed boost.
  • Paper Tiger: Dan tries to bluff his way out of the fight by intimidating Hercule, who's doing the same thing. Their escalating bluffs eventually lead to them fighting.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: Beats Dan, but suffers a head injury from his falling body. Still gives the fans a thumbs up at the end.
  • Throw Down the Bomblet: Uses stink bombs and explosives disguised as handheld game consoles.
  • Worth It: Given his track record against opponents with Ki abilities, his win, Pyrrhic or otherwise, is still something to cheer about.

    Lucario vs. Renamon 



  • Asian Fox Spirit: She's a bipedal fox with supernatural powers, though she doesn't have multiple tails outside her Champion form.
  • Blood Knight: Came to Sir Aaron's grave specifically to fight the "powerful spirit" she sensed there, Lucario.
  • Catch and Return: Catches one of Lucario's bones and sends it back at him.
  • Cross Counter: See Lucario's profile above.
  • Flechette Storm: Her main attack, Diamond Storm, launches a barrage of glowing white razor-sharp leaves.
  • Kick Chick: She has a feminine voice and persona, despite Digimon technically being agender. And she uses a lot of kicks.
  • The Empath: Could sense Lucario's spirit, leading her to him, and could tell he was 'troubled'.

    Samus Aran vs. Mega Man 

Samus Aran

  • Adaptational Villainy: In canon, Samus would never normally attack fellow heroes without good reason to. Subverted when it turns out that it's not actually her, but the SA-X impersonating her. The real Samus shows up in the climax to rescue Mega Man and help him put it down for good.
  • Big Damn Heroes: The real Samus Aran shows up to rescue Mega Man from SA-X at the climax- strafing it with cannon fire from the Gunship, and then leaping down from it to help him finish it off.
  • Buried Alive: The skyscraper the two were fighting in collapses on top of SA-X Samus after her initial defeat, due to the Black Hole Bomb she was knocked into detonating and destroying its foundations. It's not there long, however.
  • Cool Ship: The Gunship. The real Samus Aran uses it to rescue Mega Man from the SA-X at the climax by blasting it with its cannons when it has him down, before flying off in it after the fight is over.
  • Evil Counterpart: The Samus that Mega Man defeats is actually SA-X. The real Samus shows up to help him finish the job.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: The Grapple Beam, which Samus uses to capture Mega Man and throw him around. This is eventually turned against her when Mega Man sees it coming and catches the beam.
  • Leitmotif: A metal remix of the Ridley boss theme from Super Metroid. When the real Samus shows up to rescue Mega Man from SA-X, it changes to Theme of Samus Aran: Space Warrior from Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: Uses a more low-key missile barrage assisted by an extended beatdown- firing off several as she uses the Speed Boost to first outrun them, and then forces Mega Man into him as she's comboing him.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Extremely vicious towards Mega Man in the fight. Turns out it's actually SA-X who's been fighting him the whole time.
  • One-Winged Angel: SA-X reveals its true monstrous nature after its "defeat".
  • Out-of-Character Moment: As stated under Adaptational Villainy, Samus would never normally attack fellow heroes such as Mega Man. Subverted however, as the one trying to destroy Mega Man turns out to be the SA-X. The real Samus shows up after the initial battle to lend a hand in putting it down for good.
  • Power of the Void: The SA-X Samus is "defeated" by being sucked towards an activated Black Hole Bomb before being blasted fully into it by a Charged Shot, causing it (And the building the two were fighting in) to explode with her in it. Then the One-Winged Angel shows up.
  • Super Speed: Shoulder-tackles Mega Man very hard early on using the Speed Boost, as well as using it to outrun her own missiles so she can knock Mega Man into them.
  • Spin Attack: The Screw Attack.
  • Sprint Shoes: The Speed Boost- which she uses early on to shoulder-tackle Mega Man and outrun her own missiles to kick him into their path.
  • Un Sound Effect: After the SA-X's final form is blown to pieces by Samus and Mega Man's combined Zero Laser and Mega Legends. What's its dying noise? "Ech".
  • Wave-Motion Gun: Zero Laser. Uses this with Mega Man's Mega Legends to kill the SA-X at the end.

Mega Man

     Sonic the Hedgehog vs. The Flash 

Sonic The Hedgehog

  • Adaptational Villainy: Much like with Zero killing Meta Knight earlier on in the series, Sonic comes off as massively out-of-character to the point where he almost seems evil- with not only how he ends up straight-up murdering the Flash, but also with how eerily OK he is with it afterward.
  • Big Brother Instinct: As soon as he saw Flash "bullying" his friends, there was hell to pay.
  • Bond One-Liner: "You deserve that for hurting my friends".
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Straight-up murders a fellow hero and quips that he "deserved it" for fighting his friends, who are heavily implied to have attacked him first, no less.
  • Kung-Fu Sonic Boom: The end result of his Super-Sonic-outer-space dropkick when he snaps The Flash's neck.
  • Out of Character: Intentionally and brutally murdering someone for fighting his friends and saying they deserved it afterwards makes Sonic come off as unusually sociopathic- more along the lines of Shadow or Omega than himself.
  • Rolling Attack: The classic Spin Dash.
  • Speed Blitz: This was inevitable against someone like The Flash.
  • Super Mode: Super Sonic. It's what clinched the match.
  • Super Speed: Fastest thing alive. And still is after killing The Flash.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: As impulsive and arrogant as Sonic is supposed to be in his own series, he comes off as outright evil here, with regards to how he straight-up murders the Flash (A fellow hero) and says that he "deserved it" afterwards.

The Flash

  • A Tragedy of Impulsiveness: He got into a fight against Sonic because Tails and Knuckles attacked him first and he defended himself. This gets him killed.
  • Fragile Speedster: Even Sonic has trouble landing a solid hit on him, but each one leaves him reeling.
  • Neck Snap: On the receiving end thanks to Super Sonic.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: His main method of attack throughout the fight.
  • Speed Blitz: Again, inevitable against someone like Sonic.
  • Super Speed: One of the fastest beings in the DC Universe and capable of keeping up with Sonic with ease until he goes Super Sonic.

    Catwoman vs. Black Widow 


Black Widow

     Ben Singer vs. Craig Skistimas 

Ben Singer

  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: While OMM's depiction of Ben is a total jerk, the real Ben Singer is a pretty nice guy. He's appreciative of all his fans, and even if someone disagrees with him, he's still respectful to them.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Is parodied as this. If you disagree with him, too bad.

Craig Skistimas
