@Beast_Of_Prey: The Post-Crisis version of Superman. The one for Goku was a composite of all his feats and abilities from the manga, movies and DBGT before Battle of Gods came out.

#Anime Vice Discussion Threads » Fate/Stay Night 2014 Discussion

Being giddy for some insight, here's some differences I noticed with this episode's events between the game and anime (not meant to rip on the anime, but make for some fun trivia):

  • Illya's bath scene at the start of the episode is an anime-only addition.
  • Events with Shiro and Saber at the school are different. In the game, the two stay in the archery area. In the anime, Saber wanders off inside the school where Shiro finds her and the two encounter Kuzuki-sensei.
  • Rin's battle with a number of skeleton summons at the murder site she visits involving Caster was an anime-only addition.

I think I'll do this every week for UBW episodes moving forward, if anyone's interested.

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

Voting time is up. Lagoon Company and the Straw Hats are now among the final four teams involved in this tournament. Let the Semi-Finals start now...

Match #1

In a post-apocalyptic future where humanity live underground in fear of the mutant beings called Beastmen, a human resistance movement is formed to combat the Beastmen threat. Led by the hot-blooded young man Kamina, this team is known to steal the Beastmen's personal mecha, Gunmen, for their personal use and for relying on reckless tactics in the heat of battle. The team would also reform years later to combat the threat of the alien being known as the Anti-Spiral. This is Gurren Lagann's Dai-Gurren Brigade.

Notable Members: Simon, Kamina, Yoko Littner, Nia, Boota, Rossiu Adai, Kittan Bachika, Leeron Littner, Dayakka Littner, Gimmy and Darry Adai, Bachika Sisters

And their opponents...

Led by one of the powerful Disciples known as Midora, this criminal organization seeks to gather rare ingredients to further their own goals by any means necessary, seeking to dominate the world by controlling all the world's ingredients. Members of this organization are infused with Gourmet Cells, cells harvested by a Gourmet Jellyfish that grant regenerative abilities and highly enhanced superhuman attributes, and have bases located among both the Human and Gourmet Worlds. To increase the power of their Gourmet Cells, this organization is known to abduct skilled cooks and force them into preparing any stolen ingredients they wish to consume. This is Toriko's Bishokukai.

Notable Members: Midora, Alfaro, Limon, Starjun, Grinpatch, Yuu, Jerry Boy, Barrygamon, Bogie Woods, Cedre, Beim Zyper, Dohsa, Chiyo, Ootake, Bile, Mamymaron, Faram

Match #2

Located in the crime-infested town of Ronapour, this group functions as a for-hire service hired by various criminal organizations to locate and smuggle or retrieve items for them. The group consists of four members who serve differing roles with the leader/ boat driver, electronics specialist, gunslinger and businessman. This is Black Lagoon's Lagoon Company.

Notable Members: Dutch, Revy, Benny, Rock

And their opponents...

Desiring to become King of the Pirates, Monkey D. Luffy put together his own pirate crew consisting of a number of bizarre and oddball members that he picks up throughout his journey aboard the Going Merry and later the Thousand Sunny. While small in number compared to other pirate crews, the group put together by Luffy mostly consist of powerful fighters with several Devil Fruit users among their crew and having been capable of defeating a wide number of rival pirate crews and those among the military. Because of their feats throughout their journey, the crew fetch a very high bounty of over 800 million Bellies to whomever can apprehend the entire crew. This is One Piece's Straw Hat Pirates.

Notable Members: Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, Nami, Usopp, Sanji, Tony Tony Chopper, Nico Robin, Franky, Brook

Voting will end on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Have fun voting!

@SSJjanemba: Will allow it to be up for voting.

If enough votes supporting an extension on posts for the match come in within the next 24 hours, I will reopen the thread to allow it to be posted up to 200 posts.

Battles » Hades(Saint Seiya) Vs. Ben 10(Alien X)

This is easily well beyond 100 posts. If you want to extend discussion in here for another 100 posts, suggest the thread to a vote in the Over the Limit thread.

Otherwise, I'm locking this up for now.

Off-Topic » What do you think of ScrewAttack?

Guess I'll summarize my quick thoughts on battle outcomes with those I'm familiar with (except for Superman vs Goku for obvious reasons):

  • Akuma vs Shang Tsung- Death Battle made a big deal out of Akuma having low stamina, but this is a common gameplay mechanic employed in many video games he features in to balance out his monstrous offensive capabilities in battle. Still, they were mostly correct in their conclusion that he could overwhelm Shang Tsung in a battle.
  • Rogue vs Wonder Woman- Rogue would be slaughtered rather quickly going by Death Battle conditions since Diana is comparable to Superman in attributes and Rogue with Ms. Marvel's power set is nowhere in Wonder Woman's league.
  • Goomba vs Koopa- Despite it being mostly nonsensical, would agree with their reasoning for this.
  • Haggar vs Zangief- Agree with the outcome and reasoning.
  • TMNT Battle Royale- Agree with it.
  • Vegeta vs Shadow- Agree with the outcome if both characters are in base form. However with Super Form and Chaos Control, Shadow could abuse the power of both power sets to screw over Vegeta since the Saiyan prince has no resistance to time manipulation.
  • Sonic vs Mario- Agree with the outcome, even with power-ups being employed.
  • Starscream vs Rainbow Dash- Agree with it.
  • Raiden vs Thor- Agree with the outcome, though Death Battle tried playing it up as a close match despite the significant difference in attributes between Raiden's mortal form and Thor.
  • Cloud vs Link- Link's victory mostly came about from Death Battle employing gameplay mechanics to allow Link to change out inventory on the fly and appearing to ignore Cloud's superior superhuman attributes. Would think Cloud can handily take this match.
  • Spiderman vs Batman- Agree with it.
  • Pikachu vs Blanka- Agree with it.
  • Shao Kahn vs Bison- Agree with it
  • Terminator vs Robocop- Agree with it.
  • Captain America vs Batman- Agree with it.
  • Tigerzord vs Gundam Epyon- Think they portrayed the battle as being more close than necessary, but agree with it for the most part.
  • Ryu vs Scorpion- Even being a specter, Scorpion's nowhere close to Ryu's level of attributes and the conditions of Scorpion's immortality within Mortal Kombat have it taking time for him to resurrect which Death Battle conveniently ignored because of his supposed environmental advantage.

@EVA_01: Gundam speeds tend to vary depending on its environment. In space, it indeed has massively hypersonic speeds. But in areas with sufficient gravity, they are more in the realm of hypersonic speed. But still, the Epyon's destructive potential greatly outclasses whatever had been demonstrated in Power Rangers.

@EVA_01: Cloud's more like hypersonic in speed considering his casual reaction to machine gun fire, but still agree the outcome is screwy nonetheless.

@EVA_01: That match was also screwy. Granted Thor can't kill Raiden due to his immortal status, but the Norse God of Thunder still significantly outclasses him.

Off-Topic » What do you think of ScrewAttack?

The site is competent with their research for the most part, but they do have a tendency to screw up on some aspects of matches at points. Also, they usually make use of video game mechanics as legitimate aspects of a character's capabilities such as Link switching items on the fly or characters like Mario and Bomberman collecting power-ups in the middle of battle.

Think they screwed up quite a bit on their recent Ryu/ Scorpion battle as many Mortal Kombat characters are nowhere at the superhuman levels demonstrated with Street Fighter.

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

@FormerCrimsonKing: As discussed, adding a rule like what you have suggested carries too much risk of alienating many users and would be too much of a hassle to regularly monitor since I'm not always actively patrolling the site.

Think this baby's dragged on for long enough since there's nothing to really discuss with both foes unable to harm one another. Locking this up.

Off-Topic » Why is this place so inactive?

Most forum activity is concentrated in the Battles and RPG forums. As discussed, this site used to get a good deal more traffic when we had a regular editorial staff and site traffic from other Whiskey Media associated sites banding together. But with either chunks of the site having been bought out or no longer existing, this site's traffic is nowhere as what it was when Anime Vice originally formed nearly 6 years ago.

Battles » Saber vs Kaguya

Kaguya in a ridiculous stomp. Outside of the greater attributes, she has a number of notable hax abilities that Saber would lack the means of fending against.

Would suggest you read up on Battle Forum Rules to see what we allow and don't allow for posting and making threads. Otherwise with how one-sided this is, I'm locking this up.

Battles » Alucard vs Goku

@CerusSerenade: While the toonforcing, inconsistencies and outlier can be disputed against in Dragonball for the most part, the series still has legitimate feats to show off with character capabilities with superhuman fighters such as Roshi and Kid Goku being durable enough to withstand gunfire, Goku being able to easily parry machine gun fire, Piccolo Daimao able to level a city with his strongest ki attacks and feats of strength that involve pushing heavy rock formations.

Battles » Beerus Vs Darksied


Unless Bills has resistance to things like time warping and existential removal via the Omega Effect, pretty sure Darkseid has this in the bag.
