That's a first for me. If we're going to be so utterly pedantic about the inane details not being consistent, I could probably do the same to Todoroki. Completely undermine his feats because they aren't "acting the way they should be" down to the last pixel of animation, or dispute the certainty of things because things weren't made as explicitly clear as a tanker ship being hoisted above my head.

Regardless of whether it's an outlier or not we can at least agree DB's using it either way, yeah? They have other non-lightningbending characters as lightning timers from the other ATLA fights, and whether lightning is as fast as lightning or not... these guys treat every laseresque beam attack as lightspeed even if they aren't explicitly lasers, so. It's probably fair to assume they'll treat lightning as lightning.
That, and lightning-speed Zuko is the only way Zuko has a fighting chance (even if it probably won't help much).
Toss a coin to your witcher, o' valley of plenty.
So after much neglect, I'm finally jamming to Toss a coin to your witcher and I got to know if there are any good match-ups for Geralt.

Since "Someone from SoulCalibur" is cheating, and "Someone from Samurai Shodown" is too by extension (And "Someone from For Honor" is by extended extension also cheating) I say it should be someone else from a open-world game.
The Dragonborn and the Arisen are the first to come to mind but they have that "Variable class and skills" problem. Maybe Alloy from Horizon Zero Dawn? BOTW Link?
Maybe the Bloodborne protagonist?
There's also Conan the Barbarian and Dovahkiin, but Talion is the most popular one I've heard.
I would absolutely love for a Bloodborne character to be in these. I'd say the "Variable stats and skills" problem isn't even as bad there since they aren't as dramatic as in many contemporaries. The protagonist though has absolutely got to fight a Belmont.
Talion seems like a no-brainer now that he's brought up. Although what would the exact thematic link be, I wonder.
Huh the Brightlord vs the White Wolf.
A week ago I suggested Tanjiro from Demon Slayer as an opponent for Geralt.
Doesn't Tanjiro win that easy though? I've only read the first two volumes but I mean the kid splits a boulder in half and only gets stronger from there. Geralt's beyond peak human but he doesn't have the power of god and anime on his side.
Too bad we already used Guts.

What about Corvo Attano from Dishonored? Elric of Melniboné.
It occurs to me that Improbable Aiming Skills is rarely, if ever treated like an actual superpower as opposed to Charles Atlas Superpower. In western made works at least.
Both Geralt and Talion are fantasy heroes skilled with bow and blade and hunt monsters (Geralt for his job, Talion for revenge), they both have superhuman abilities (Geralt due to the mutagens, Talion due to the wraith), and both have supernatural abilities (Geralt with the signs, Talion with the wraith abilities).
Id say Drizzt Do'Urden, but somehow WotC has been sleeping on his film/tv potential, and Baldur's Gate is a poor measuring stick, methinks.
Yeah, I've wondered about Drizzt as well but since most of his abilities come from the novels it's hard to gauge it properly. same with a Match up involving Harry Dresden who I would like to see go up against John Constantine. Also is it just me or are the character intro for DB a lot shorter than they used to be, it feels like they never mention a character's weaknesses anymore unless it's in those super tiny boxes, just go over the background, what they can do technique/power wise (which mostly just involves annoying math more than legit proof imo). Honestly I think the biggest drawbacks for animating wiz and boomstick (aside from a lot of bad jokes) are just how much they have to reduce the character focus to focus on them.
I would like to see Ezio against someone, but I'm not really sure who would be a good fit for him.
I’m facing similar issues. I would love to see Kamen Rider Black RX in a battle, but who could work as an opponent?
Random suggestion for a death battle
Star Butterfly vs Sailor Moon
I've seen a bit of Star vs. the Forces of Evil.
I believe Star (being something of a Western Parody of magical girls....like the classic magical girls who come from another land to earth rather than the Magical Girl Warrior that Sailor Moon defined) gets pretty stupid powerful (though in a silly way since her wand can summon Narwhals among other things), but it comes down to the question of how she stacks up to Usagi, who's feats have been mentioned on this thread (especially with the recent Galaxia fight).
Personally lean towards Star vs. Steven Universe.
I can't resist Magical Girl duel
I’d imagine that if Sailor Moon is going to fight then her opponent would be Madoka
Considering how Talion ends up at the end of the second game, I question how well Geralt would fare against one of the Nazgül — who unlike the monsters in The Witcher series aren't weak to silver and can pretty much scare their opponents to death with their Black Breath.

Both Steven and Star have some similarities.
1) Both are basically teenage heroes, with powers that they either use responsibly or not.
2) Bother have a Human partner in crime with no powers, but later prove to be capable of holding there own, even traveling with them to areas they really should be in (Also love interest too).
3) Both have a terrible family history full of build up lies and deceit that really affects them badly, and coincidentally, from their mother side.
4) Both make the decision to carry their family's sins and make attempts to do and be better, already proving that they were indeed.
5) Both have super forms that is basically their most powerful forms, (However Steven's forms is one that he really can't call upon unless he's really emotionally done.)
I don't really see Steven winning against Star Butterfly, mainly because while most of defenses are above Star's, Star has plenty of Hax she should have access to, like Time Stop, physical alterations, even Mind Eraser, somethings Steven has no way of countering. Star presumably had more training against Steven and has been brought up to be a strong warrior given her father's side of the family.
Steven Universe Future shows how far Steven can go if he needs to, even as corrupt gem, even giving the Diamonds a terrible time, and granted that most of Star spells probably won't do much harm to Steven, but many of her spells are so out of left field, he'd be more surprised and let his guard down. Steven mainly relies on "Defense is the best offense" and many of his wins either had him fusing with Connie (Not allowed here) or finding another way to win (Talk-no-jutsu for example), while Star does have victories in actual fights solo and by her own strength.
