Battles » Piccolo vs Meta Cooler

@nishi99: While there are some flaws to their placement due to contradictions in events from the manga (since the movies obviously existed to cash in on DBZ's popularity), the movies were still meant to be placed during certain major events in the show's storyline.

And now that I think about it, the placement I have for the sixth movie may be a ways off based on the appearance of Goku and Vegeta as SSJs and Gohan not being an SSJ, thus the movie would more likely be sometime before the Android saga. Still, I picture Kamiccolo losing here as it took the combined effort of two Super Saiyans to off one of the Metal Coolers and Meta-Cooler would be a worst threat for Piccolo to deal with than 17 thanks to the robot's regenerative and reactive evolution abilities.

Battles » Piccolo vs Meta Cooler

@nishi99: Yet Cooler arrived on Earth in the fifth movie when Goku was present on the planet and he could become a Super Saiyan, implying that said movie took place during the timeskip between Mecha Frieza's demise and the arrival of the Androids. Also, Vegeta's ability to go Super Saiyan wasn't revealed until after Goku felt victim to his heart virus. The two week period is the most probable time that the sixth movie would have taken place.

Battles » Piccolo vs Meta Cooler

@GeneralVan: The battle with Meta-Cooler is apparently set during the two week wait for the Cell Games. If this is the case, Kamiccolo would be screwed since Goku and Vegeta as Full-Power and Ascended Super Saiyans respectively struggled at stopping just one of them.

Battles » Universal Comic Characters Vs Universal Anime/Manga Characters

@taichokage: Even factoring in verse equalization, what is Thanos gonna be capable of doing to Bern with the Infinity Gauntlet considering she's a witch who casually makes play things out of universes? Just having the Gauntlet isn't enough for Thanos to off her.

Battles » Universal Comic Characters Vs Universal Anime/Manga Characters

@taichokage: The Infinity Gauntlet's power can not be used beyond a single universe. It would give its wielder power to surpass other universal-level beings like the mentioned cosmics and abstracts you've mentioned. But it can't work beyond the Earth-616 universe within Marvel Comics.

Battles » Goku vs Akuma (Read OP)

@OfficialRikudouSennin: Akuma was able to sink an island with a chop to the ground (which is on par with 23rd Budokai Goku's level) and his Shun Goku Satsu bypasses physical durability to fatally harm his foe's soul.

Just Anime » Which is the better anime, based on animation, music, characters, premise and story?

Guess I'll rank these from worst to best (just my personal opinion, mind you):

5. FMA: Brotherhood- Follows a more conventional shounen story compared to the original 2003 series and I was initially hesitant to watch through the whole show for a while as a result of this. Hype be damned, sticking strongly with the manga doesn't always make for an engaging title.

4. Steins;Gate- Has nice animation and suspenseful moments with Okabe and his partners tampering with time travel and dealing with SERN, but the slow first half does make things a bit of a chore to push through until the more engaging second half comes along.

3. Hellsing Ultimate- An addicting ride of stylish grittiness and over-the-top insanity with the three-way conflict between Hellsing Organization, Millennium and Iscariot, as well as having its moments of excellently animated sequences on par with a movie production. Ranked in the middle because it doesn't have as much depth to it compared to the higher two titles on the list.

2. Death Note- Plenty of fluid and detailed animation in this series and one of the most engaging conflicts I've seen in an anime with the cat-and-mouse game between Light and L over trying to deduce what facts they need to arrest or kill the other. If the events with Near never happened, this would have been #1 among my choices with the poll.

1. Fate/ Zero- An engaging epic ride with highly-detailed artwork, engaging battle sequences, a haunting and energetic soundtrack and plenty of depth into the various Master-Servant relationships and the pasts of several characters who either gain prominent roles later in Stay Night or help escalate the events that would come in that later installment of the Fate franchise.

But in terms of the mentioned categories...

Animation: Fate/ Zero rather easily

Music: A tie between Fate/ Zero and Hellsing Ultimate. The musical choices for Fate/Zero are intense, grand and energetic to go along nicely with its plot twists and battles. But getting to listen to orchestral scores and monk chantings while London is set ablaze from the three way war of factions in the series is really glorious. XD

Characters: Fate/ Zero. Unlike Stay Night, there is greater focus on the chemistry between Servants and Masters that give you different relationship dynamics between the pairings and a number of the major characters in the series get their backgrounds and personalities fleshed out.

Premise: Tied between Death Note and Fate/Zero.

Story: Fate/Zero. The events of the 4th Holy Grail War offered enough twists and shocking developments that kept me hooked on the show all the way to its conclusion. Death Note's premise had more complexity to it that would have outranked Fate/Zero for me if only it chose to end after things with Light and L's rivalry got resolved.

Battles » Universal Comic Characters Vs Universal Anime/Manga Characters

@Saladking: Flurries of exchanges between witches and others on their level in Umineko are capable of creating and destroying many universes at once, easily putting them at multiversal-level. Battler, the person you're referring to, was at Bernkastel's level when he was able to deliver damage to her.

Also, Infinity Gauntlet is allowed here as its power is limited to effecting a single universe at a time. Use of its power to prevent a dimensional collision between two alternate universes by Captain America led to the Gauntlet's destruction and nearly all the Infinity Gems being shattered.

Plus, would agree anime team takes this thanks to Bern soloing the Marvel team.

Battles » Alucard( Hellsing) vs Nui Harime( Kill La Kill)

@619locust: The Scissor Blades were made specifically for cutting Life Fibers and screwing up the regenerative abilities of Life Fiber-enhanced beings, not negating regeneration in others. They wouldn't do anything to affect Alucard's regeneration here.

Naruto » Do you agree with this Naruto character strength list?

A couple things:

1. Discussion on character feats and strongest in the series belong in their series-respective forum, thus this is moved to the Naruto forum.

2. We already have a thread discussing who people think are currently the strongest in the series.

Since this thread is more extensive in judging the current strength levels of Naruto characters, I'll keep this one open and lock the Top 10 one I've linked to.

Battles » DC/Marvel VS Anime/manga (many battles in one thread)

These kinds of matches aren't allowed in this forum.

Banned Battle Threads/ Characters

Due to specific types of characters and matches having potential to derail match discussion or potential to spark flame wars, they are banned from being posted and will be locked on sight. Here are the types of matches and characters not allowed to be posted in the Battle forum:

  • Superman Family vs DBZU characters at any level.
  • Battle threads involving any godlike or near-godlike being from any form of media. What I mean by this is characters that are fully omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing) and omnipresent (existing in all planes of reality within their title) or are close to all of these levels with some form of limitation that prevents them from gaining perfect status in all three. Characters that fulfill only one or two of these requirements in perfect or near-perfect status like abstracts or high-level reality warpers don't technically fall under any form of godlike status and thus are not banned.
  • Battle threads featuring characters with toonforcing. If the character only makes use of toonforcing for a small number of abilities and feats, then only their feats with the ability are banned and shouldn't be factored in for a match.
  • A whole Universe vs one of more character threads.
  • Universe vs Universe threads
  • Fan-Fic Character battle threads (Ex: Made up fusion characters, and characters that have no legitimate feats in officially licensed Anime/Manga material.)
  • Vote Battle Threads.
  • Battle threads containing more than one match posted in the opening post.

Afraid I must lock this up.

Battles » Ridoku Sennin Naruto Vs Whitebeard Vs Current Kenpachi

Whitebeard gets offed first. After that, Zaraki will be gone afterward as Naruto's massive arsenal of abilities would be too overwhelming for him to fend against.

Definitely need more for battle conditions. If you don't add them in your opening post in the next 24 hours, I'm gonna have to lock this.

Battles » Goku vs Akuma (Read OP)

Not sure if this is a mismatch, but will try it nonetheless.

Battle Conditions:

  • Goku is at 23rd Budokai level, Akuma is in Shin form.
  • Battle to the death. Goku is willing to kill in this match, but retains normal battle tactics. Akuma is in character for this match.
  • Both have no knowledge of abilities of one another.
  • Battle takes place at Budokai arena with both opponents 10 yards apart from one another.

With these conditions, who do you think wins?

Goku (Dragon Ball)
Goku (Dragon Ball)
Akuma (Street Fighter)
Akuma (Street Fighter)
