Battles » ITACHI VS THIS TEAM AVATAR

@CerusSerenade: You don't recall Bumi from the first series? He was Earthbending despite his entire body being unable to move due to being sealed in a coffin like container. It's likely Korra was milking this same thing from Earthbending since master-level benders are capable of such. There aren't any instances of past Avatars having superhuman strength.

Battles » Battle Forum Rules 2.0. ALL USERS PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING!!

@waybig1010101: The original rules for this forum were made more in mind for general/ casual debaters in here and were mostly made in mind to prevent hostilities between debaters instead of any sort of big system of rules/ conditions like what battle debate sites like Death Battle or the OBD would put together. We've integrated some stuff such as Default Battle Conditions and the Ban List since I've gained modship earlier this year, but not to the large extent that the mentioned battle sites would dig into.

@SMXLR8: If it's a tournament, then I'll keep things as is. However, the conditions also have this looking like some sort of battle royale style match. flashback180 needs to clarify what his intents with this thread are or I may have to lock this thread up in the next 24 hours.

Battles » nami vs tenten

Would also have to go with Nami. Nami has been capable of using her smarts and the Clima-tact to prevail against foes stronger than Tenten, such as the mentioned Mrs. Doublefinger and Kalifa of the CP9. As long as Nami plays things smart, she should be able to prevail against Tenten in most battle scenarios.

@Whats_out_the_bag:

Which is why platinum can't be bended. Because it's Pure metal. Which even on the wiki page, you will see it states that it is pure metal.

Now that I'm looking into things more thoroughly with platinum since I'm at home, I'll concede to this. However, I am still under the belief that Korra had used earthbending of sorts to break free from her chains instead of superhuman strength as CerusSerenade seems to believe. If you may recall, the Earth Kingdom king Bumi, who is a master Earthbender from the first series, was capable of using Earthbending without any body movement as his entire body was restrained from any kind of movement when Ba Sing Se was taken over by the Fire Nation. It's reasonable to assume any Avatar under the Avatar State can milk Earthbending without body movement as well.

Azula's lightning was calc'd to Mach 12+ which we moderately power scaled to the TOP tiers of her generation. Which where her father and Uncle. Not too much giving.

Link?

General Discussion » Official Anime/ Manga Teams/ Organizations Voting Tourney Thread

Voting time is up. Stardust Crusaders advance to the next round, yet we have a tie in the first match meaning I will make the winning vote. The winning vote shall go to the Z Fighters. The Z Fighters and Stardust Crusaders advance to the next round. Time for the next set of matches...

Match #1

This group of banchou were those that came together to aid Akira Kongou after being defeated by him in battle. The group came together when Akira was attacked by a rival group of banchou called the Five Dark Vows and received plenty of outside help to aid them in their battles. This is Kongou Banchou's Banchou Alliance.

Notable Members: Akira Kongou, Touya Kiriu, Master Raionji, Kobushi Shirayukinomiya, Yuu Akiyama, Haruka Kodama, AT-KM-100

And their opponents...

This group of shinigami serve as the Soul Society's primary military branch who are tasked with defending the center of their world from enemy threats and properly guiding souls to the afterlife.The group consists of 13 divisions led by Captain-Commander Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto and have ranks for their officers based on a merit-based hierarchy and one's abilities in battle. The group are tasked throughout much of their title to apprehend or destroy their traitorous former captain Sousuke Aizen and his allies. This is Bleach's Gotei 13.

Notable Members: Genryusai Shigekuni Yamamoto, Shunsui Kyoraku, Nanao Ise, Genshiro Okikiba, Sui-Feng, Marechiyo Omaeda, Izuru Kira, Riku Togakushi, Isane Kotetsu, Yasochika Iemura, Shinji Hirako, Momo Hinamori, Byakuya Kuchiki, Renji Abarai, Sajin Komamura, Tetsuzaemon Iba, Tatsufusa Enjoji, Shuhei Hisagi, Mashiro Kuna, Toshiro Hitsugaya, Rangiku Matsumoto, Kenpachi Zaraki, Yachiru Kusajishi, Ikkaku Madarame, Mayuri Kurotsuchi, Nemu Kurotsuchi, Akon, Jushiro Ukitake, Rukia Kuchiki, Kiyone Kotetsu, Sentaro Kotsubaki

Match #2

This Tokyo high school basketball team is notable for their high-level run and gun style of playing as such where they are considered to be one of the best offensive teams in the region. Being a newly formed team, only first and second year high school students form the basketball team and they are coached by a high school girl named Riko Aida, who is the daughter of a sports trainer. This is Kuroko no Basket's Seirin High.

Notable Members: Tetsuya Kuroko, Taiga Kagami, Junpei Hyuga, Teppei Kiyoshi, Shun Izuki, Rinnosuke Mitobe, Shinji Koganei, Satoshi Tsuchida, Koki Furihata, Koichi Kawahara, Hiroshi Fukuda, Riko Aida, Tetsuya #2, Kenji Takeda

And their opponents...

Also known as the Recon Corps, this branch of the military is mostly responsible for engaging in combat against the monstrous beings known as Titans and expanding human territory. They are known to explore territory outside of Wall Maria, yet are also infamous for having a low survival rate since many of their soldiers are killed by Titans during their expeditions. Because of the high risk of involvement with the branch, membership within it is low and there is great opposition to its existence due to the perceived lack of expansion it has contributed to human territory. Despite such high losses however, the group is considered the best squad in the military in terms of the quality of soldiers and officers involved, with the losses driving the group to fight smarter by developing a formation to reduce their losses by minimizing confrontations with Titans. This is Attack on Titan's Scouting Legion.

Notable Members: Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, Armin Arlert, Levi Ackerman, Hanji Zoe, Captain Erwin

Voting will end on either Sunday or Monday. Have fun voting!

Battles » ITACHI VS THIS TEAM AVATAR

@CerusSerenade:

"Korra broke out of platinum chains. They can't be earth/metal bent"

Last I recall, platinum is indeed a metal. So yes, it would have been possible for Korra to metalbend the chains, even in her Avatar state.

"As for natural lightning bending being an outlier? No. Zuko went out during a storm to try an do the same thing, granted lightning never struck him, but it's a noted ability of lightning redirection and lightning bending. Iroh reacted to lightning, I really don't see how you can just pass it off as inadmissible when lightning bending has the same qualities as natural lightning. (is well conducted in metal and water)"

Assuming that anyone capable of avoiding a lightning attack from a Firebender or Avatar that isn't natural lightning is suddenly a lightning-timer is pretty absurd, especially as there are other titles featuring similar styles of lightning attacks that have folks misassuming someone's a lightning-timer from dodging said attacks like the magic lightning fired from one of Sephiroth's spawns from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children.

@Whats_out_the_bag:

"And that matters why? Dream's not the creator of thee series nor is Dream the official Representative of "We the Vices". So bringing that up is completely irrelevant."

I'm not a creator of Avatar, but I am a fan of the series. I like it more than Naruto, yet I still think the team in this match is screwed against Itachi from comparing the feats and capabilities of all involved. I try not to let my personal preference for titles get in the way of how matches between characters of different titles go, which sadly affects how a number of debaters reason their position on a match at points in this forum and other Battle forums I've visited.

"The charaka you are referring to are the Chakra gates. They are indeed similar to the eight gates in Naruto, but they are still different. Being similar doesn't mean they are the same. So no Genjusu is not in play."

Now I take it you also don't believe in the concept of energy equivalence? Exactly how do you think they are different? Both follow similar concepts in that they are used in both titles to allow their characters to have enhanced physical attributes and/or perform elemental attacks.

I'll continue debating on things in here later. My lunch break's nearly done.

@CerusSerenade:

Re-read my posts before you type something again, you're embarrassing yourself.

I suggest you don't push things any further since this comment has you bordering on insulting others and you're taking this way too personally. If this keeps up, I will have to take action.

As for the direction you seem to be implying, I don't see Avatar characters having superhuman levels of strength and massively hypersonic speeds (especially considering Iroh's supposed lightning-timer reaction time is the only instance of such a feat in the series and nothing else comes remotely close to it meaning even if it is legit, it would be an outlier compared to whatever else was seen in Avatar).

enough strength to break out of platinum chains (stronger than steel) even while bound up

This seemed more like Korra's metalbending being amplified when she entered the Avatar state, nothing to do with strength.

So long as Ozai doesn't take flight, Itachi shouldn't have much difficulty picking off the team with his superior speed.

Battles » Levi Ackerman VS Afro Samurai

Even with the 3D Manuever Gear milked by Levi, Afro greatly surpasses him in attributes as he is fast enough to casually cut up bullets and can cut through steel with his sword. The moment Levi even tries going in for the kill, he's gonna be shish-ka-bob.

Since this match is so one-sided, I'm gonna lock it up.
