Kefla actually, but even if their personalities are different, I suppose for this Death Battle (a parallel to Goku vs Superman) either of them would work.
I don't think they'd pit Power Girl against Maxima, as they tend to avoid intra-continuity fights unless it's a battle royale or something.
There was Carolina vs the Meta.
But it was a Red VS Blue episode, so it is an outlier.
I'd trade Power Girl fighting Kefla for Kefla fighting Firestorm - two beings fused together greater than the sum of their parts, both shoot laser beams from their hands, and both are heavy hitters in their respective groups.
That said Kefla can "blow away a whole universe in 1 shot."

Yeah, aside from that, the only intra-continuity fight that wasn't a Battle Royale was Goomba vs. Koopa. And that was just the fourth episode of the entire series.
I could maybe see them doing a fight between Final Fantasy characters, since those are pretty much separate continuities anyway.
Yeah, Ezio took it 70% to 30%. Not that surprising that the more popular series won here.
Next time is Blake Belladonna vs. Inuyasha
Where the winner will be no one.

I find it amazing they pick two characters known for their bladed weapons and then they spend 3/4 of the fight punching and kicking each other in the style of a hong kong movie.
It speaks a lot of how shitty the direction is.
If that was an actual Death Battle poor Blake wouldn't stand a chance. Even without his sword InuYasha outclasses her in every possible way.
There was some Youtuber who did a series of reaction videos to the Ben 10 vs Lantern battle, and complained about how they misrepresented Alien X and its fighting style - make of that what you will - but one point was that DB tends to just make every battle a Dragonball Z-esque punching contest.
I'm kind of feeling that right now. This was way too straight up "let's f-ck each other up" for me. We're talking about a trained assassin and a... prince who can run on walls, and..
Well yeah, that. And...
I'm happy with the models they used but this wasn't the best 3D battle we've seen from DBX. The result surprised me. I guess Prince of Persia is lesser-known than I thought.
...there any theme here besides cat vs dogs? Kind of happy Blake gets to be here but, like, Taokaka or Felicia would've been better opponents thematically.
I guess "cat with a sword" vs "dog with a sword" works - but Taokaka and Blake come from worlds with heavy prejudice towards their species, and both are trying to essentially make a name for themselves to change that. Taokaka meanwhile... well, she's a cat. That's still better.

I bet if the fans are consistent, then Blake will lose. Don't ask me
Actually, isn't Inuyasha kind of a Memetic Loser too?

In-universe he's Kagome's beyatch but AFAIK the only things people talk about from Inuyasha these days are how we all used to stay up and watch it on [AS], and about the banging first and second ED songs:
I guess next to Sesshomaru ( that guy) he might be. Inuyasha is the Hot-Blooded younger brother and Sesshomaru is the cool, aloof, competent Anti-Hero who makes Inuyasha look bad every time he shows up.

Not every time.
Do not that Seshomaru spends the bulk of the series missing an arm from their first encounter.
He's also on the wrong end of the first ever Wind Scar as well.
Those are only two moments though: Seshomaru does show himself to be the physically stronger of the two multiple times, but Inuyasha grows in power as the series goes along, and I'm not really sure where he'd stand against his brother at the end (though I think he was supposed to be close to equal to him).
Was Inuyasha also a jobber like Blake? I know he's a shonen protagonist, so probably not, but I just want to make sure before pulling stuff out of my ass.
He fucked up and got his ass kicked a lot.
Was never much for finesse, and he got impaled more times than I can count because his go to strategy was charge in like an idiot.
But he also can heal from damn near anything, so it didn't bite him in the ass nearly as much as you'd expect.
So he is Dante. Got it
From what I remember the bigger issue came from Naraku.
Heís Dante if Dante had no coordination, style, showmanship, skill, & a habit of losing his temper all the time.
So literally Leeroy Jenkins, but with none of the ham that makes his bullshit entertaining?
Why do you think his brother is so much more popular than him?
Because people tend to have a kink for aloof pretty boys?
This isnít rocket surgery
Sesshy is the prettiest and the aloofest of the aloof pretty boys. He is on a whole 'nother level.
Inuyasha's mostly famous for Naraku being king of Joker Immunity par excellence. Basically the entire series was one excruciatingly long quest to kill the bastard.
Inuyasha himself is absurdly powerful in straight-up fights. Early on there's a villain who can create Razor Wire and traps an entire forest with it; it cuts humans in half if they so much as touch it. (This was graphic enough it likely caused a lot of parents to ban late night anime in their household.) Inuyasha runs through a ton of it and doesn't even notice something is trying to cut him apart. Later on he straight up cleaves mountains in half with his sword.
Poor Sango. Kagome had superpowered plot reincarnation arrows and Miroku had hax OHKO black hole hand and all she was was superhumanly agile and strong.
As I understand it, she got a power-up through the demon bones her boomerang was made of.
Does her family come from Australia?
Did they have boomerangs in feudal Japan?
Do they have dog demons or fox demons in Feudal Japan?
No, not in real life but Inuyasha ain't real life.
Hence giant ass boomerangs.
Disclaimer: Sango's boomerang is not made of a giant ass, just in case someone tried to make that joke.
I mean, I'd be impressed at getting it to return when it's not very aerodynamic, but nonetheless, it's just a regular gigantic demon bone boomerang.
