Off-Topic » Your Top 10 non-Animé Favourite Animated Films

@takashichea:

All I remember was the conflicts from feminism

Might be the case with earlier Disney films from their use of fairy tales. However, it would be hard to argue such with Disney giving their female characters more defined personality and independent thought with their later works.

racism such as the crows and hyenas

The crow one, I'm guessing refers to the blackbirds from Dumbo. The group were actually voiced by an African American choir and I recall there has been a good amount of debate over whether the portrayal was racist. However, I don't get where the hyenas from Lion King would involve any sort of racism.

and how most of their villains have foreign accents compared to the main heroes who have no accents.

This seems like someone is really grasping at straws.

@takashichea: There is some truth to it. Disney created a number of animated shorts during World War II that served as propaganda to have American citizens do such things as hate their enemies and support their military, much in the same vain that Warner Brothers did with a number of their cartoons. They created a rather dark anti-Nazi short called Education for Death that showed the growth of a boy named Hans being molded into the perfect Nazi soldier that is infamous among those who have dug deeper into Disney works.

@takashichea: Disney can whip out good films now and then. However some of their older films haven't aged too well for plotting since they dabbled into classic fare for handling fairy tales with the main heroine in each title not having much in the way of personality beyond waiting for their wish to be granted or a prince to save them (ex: Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty).

Battles » Kaguya Ootsutsuki Vs Nappa

Nappa surpasses her in destructive potential, but she still has comparable speed and hax to take care of him like the mentioned BFR and possibly any ability wielded through the Sharingan and Rinnegan. The latter is making assumptions for now, but she should be able to wield all abilities and techniques unique to the three doujutsu since she has all three on her.

Battles » Goku vs Kaguya Otsutsuki

Kaguya gets slaughtered. The gap in attributes between her and Goku is far too significant here.

Afraid I'm gonna have to lock this since I don't see any probable way Kaguya would prevail here.

Battles » World Breaker Hulk, Mantra Reactor Asura Vs SSJG Goku, Bills

The flagged comment from Ikki Manami wasn't directed at any user thus he's in the clear. However, I suggest not stirring up any thing that would make you look bad, even if you suspect there might be a biased or uninformed slant with whomever you debate with.

Apologies for not replying to this earlier. Had work and other matters online that got my attention since I've been up.

Off-Topic » The Worst Fanfiction/Worst OC you've seen?

@takashichea: Bennett the Sage did a reading of it a while back in a series called Masterpiece Fanfic Theater where he reads some of the worst offerings there are for fanfiction.

Here's the link for the one he has for the Goku/ Anne Frank fanfic:

Battles » Nono (Diebuster) runs a DBZ gauntlet

@ImDictatorBowDown: She doesn't have any resistance to transmutation from what I seen of Diebuster, so the Candy Beam would affect her assuming it hits.

Don't read much fan fiction. But I've read this one and seen all the infamy it gets online.

Anne Frank meets Dragon Ball...

Battles » Nono (Diebuster) runs a DBZ gauntlet

@taichokage: Nono at regular stats is only star level. She could give just about all the DBZ cast fits in one-on-one battles. But Bills and SSJG Goku are solar system level. The significant stat difference would be too much for her to compete with, even with her black holes.

Battles » Over The Limit!: AV Battle Community Vote Thread.

@DBZ_universe: Ikki Manami isn't gonna be able to change the title of his thread, thus he'll have to create a new one if he wants alternate conditions for a Goku/ Black Star match. Trying to create a new round with another form for Goku when one is already classified in the title would confuse those who comment on the match. I'm not reopening the thread.

Battles » Broly runs a planetary+ gauntlet

@machmans: There were no specific versions classified for Wonder Woman and Dr. Strange. There's some confusion over whether the Post-Crisis or New 52 version of Wonder Woman being factored and folks are factoring in the empowered version of Strange for this match who would also have his classic feats since there hasn't been a reboot for Marvel Comics like DC Comics has done.

I doubt the maker of this thread would have tossed in Strange in a weakened state if this is supposed to be a gauntlet full of characters who are at least planet-busting level.

Battles » Broly runs a planetary+ gauntlet

@machmans:

No One in this lineup come close to that and broly easily stomps them and then gets stomped by spectre

Ummmm... no.

Nono could pull him into her black holes.

Wonder Woman could speed blitz him.

Dr. Strange's magic and artifacts puts him at universal-level as he has competed with cosmic beings of such level like Shuma-Gorath and Dormammu.

Sentry's anywhere from star to solar system level depending on his mental state, is massively FTL and has molecular manipulation which Broly would have no means to defend against.

Captain Atom and Spectre would easily lay waste to Broly due to their significantly greater attributes in comparison to the LSSJ having reality warping, time manipulation and/or nigh-omnipotence at their disposal.

On the other hand, Rogue is screwed and Etrigan's likely to give Broly difficulty before offing the demon. I don't know anything about Slender Man to comment on his chances.
