This article seems to be missing a video. Anyway, if we're talking about actual fighting, Goku wins.

Battle forum folk, this is a preemptive warning: STAY CIVIL.

Video's up!

Yup Goku always wins, because he is Goku, He can take on any force in the universe, His only weakness..... Heart disease,

Okay, first off -- awesome idea. This site has a thriving battle section on the forums so matching that with content on the front page is a great idea.

That said, guys... this video is only one and a half minutes long! As much as I agree with the result, you could have thrown in a few more factors to consider. Take additional power-ups for instance. Goku obviously has multiple levels of Super Saiyan and Ichigo's been able to surpass Bankai for a very long time now. Heck last time I checked in with the manga he was in the process of developing entirely new powers to replace his previous forms.

There has to be more to it than just "Goku goes Super Saiyan and blasts Ichigo into spirit dust." Super Saiyan Goku vs. Bankai Ichigo is just the warm-up.

Personally I think Ichigo as he was when he fought Aizen (before using Final Getsuga Tenshou) could give Goku a run for his money, maybe even force him to power up to Super Saiyan 3. If Ichigo is now even stronger than he was back then, this could actually be a real fight.

I'm not even a battle forum kind of guy, wait until the real battle folk start dropping comments ;)

Ichigo drew the short straw here. Goku right off the bat...oh boy poor kid.

Casual planet level fighter vs maybe a small mountain buster.

Spite thread, this should be locked.

Bahahaha nah, but it would be cool if you both did this again with two people on the same level though. Just like Daniel_Newton said, this site has a thriving battle section, and many great debates happen there. If you both were to pick two characters and each argue one, it could be a great way to reach out to the battles folk :D.

takashichea moderator on Jan. 8, 2014 at 10:08 p.m.

That was a fun watch. I do agree with Vapovile and Daniel on appealing towards battle folks. Goku has better resolve than Ichigo. Goku's power of family and awesome hair trumps Ichigo's power of friendship. Oh wait, I'm messing with y'all.

@Daniel_Newton: @sickVisionz: @Acura_Max: @GrayWolf2: @Vapovile: To everyone, we hope you enjoy these as we roll them out.

We had recorded a set a loooong time ago, so we'll see how these do to start.

One of the things that's so fun about the fighting thread community is their ability to be imaginative (as well as precise) but think of these as a little more tongue-in-cheek. If you're looking for in depth fights there are plenty of places to go (including this website) so let this stand of our way to add a little Vice Pit humor into the debates. Part of what makes these so silly IS their length, but I really enjoyed making this.

Wait til' you see some of the other fights we got planned! Happy 2014

FoxxFireArt moderator on Jan. 8, 2014 at 10:24 p.m.

Kind of an outclassed match in the first round. It's akin to asking Bruce Willis (DIE HARD era) VS. Muhammad Ali (prime).

Goku wins

hitsusatsu11on Jan. 8, 2014 at 11:58 p.m.

I liked the video, features two of my favorite battle shonen protags in an interesting and funny scenario- which I would love to see animated. Of course comparing the two seriously results in the obvious conclusion that goku wins without breaking a sweat, usually when these xovers actually get made the power levels get equalized for plot purposes, ala dbz- OP- toriko xover.

Toshiro1on Jan. 9, 2014 at 1:35 a.m.

Ichigo Wins because he is awesome.

Killer_of_trollson Jan. 9, 2014 at 5:25 a.m.

Seriously?! This is amateur work, and a pointless spite topic...

Tom and the rest of the staff should visit the battle section more often.

Kuma_From_Argentinaon Jan. 9, 2014 at 9:25 a.m.

Goku destroys him, is not even funny XD

That makes sense, it wasn't entirely clear what you guys were going for, I think we just needed a little clarification.

By the way, I love the name! Looking forward to the next round :D

@Killer_of_trolls: Read Sam's post, this isn't supposed to be a "spite topic" or a serious battle debate like the threads we already have on the forums, though I'm sure you're welcome to voice any opinions you may have on the match-ups in the comments.

Justalittlegirlon Jan. 14, 2014 at 7:42 a.m.

Did Goku even have to go Super Saiyan?

Ichigo stomps.
