Victory by death
Agree on depowering badass characters, like they had no idea what to do with them after a while; but i can't complain. I am one of few people that probably enjoyed heroes from beginning to end. Then again i was much younger when i first watched it, and i couldn't get enough of it back then. it has potential to be something great. I only hope they avoid the time travel stuff. it felt like they were trying too hard to make their own timelines make sense after a while.
it could be argued that Migi could cut Kaneki faster than he can regenerate and into the tiniest pieces
Kaneki wins this he's faster and moreover he just so happens to have the most balanced Kagune type. In a fistfight it's closer but i'm still giving it to Kaneki due to insane regen, anything goes Kaneki takes it by a quite a bit.
I've been waiting to see Gowther really let loose; he survived having his neck broken; it will be interesting to see just how much damage he can take; it is interesting that Merlin spoke of keeping Mel's treasure away from him as if it were for his own good; maybe his treasure makes him full demon.
@katmic: First of all Hidan isn't the brightest and if Itachi pulls out his Susanoo and starts sealing the other teams it's more or less already over. Kisame could use his giant water prison to keep the rest too busy trying to get a breath, while in the water prison he's the fastest if merged with Samehada. If we were going for last man standing though, Tobi wins with intangability. Deidara's flight advantage means nothing when you keep flying low for accurate bombings, which is quite IC for Deidara. As for Kakuzu he might be the most destructive member and one of the hardest to kill by having 5 lives, but when he's got his masks out he can't keep track of them anymore and loses a lot of his DC especially when the masks are destroyed.
Keep in mind that, with his five masks, kakuzu has access to powerful water jutsus, which should make him a decent match for Kisame even under water. And i don't know if Kisame could even defeat Orochimaru, who has that giant summon and reincarnation jutsu. And how about Sasori and his 100 puppets. Sasuke could just as easily Amaterasu Kisame before he can do his water prison thing. Itachi might spend more time bailing Kisame out of air assaults from deidara, Amaterasu barrages from sasuke, multi elemental attacks from Kakuzu etc, leaving him open for a surprise attack from someone like Tobi. And what's stopping Sasori from basically gasing everyone with poison.
kakuzu has the advantage because he can focus on literally burning, exploding, drowning and destroying everything and everyone in sight indiscriminately, knowing that Hidan will survive. Also keep in mind that, with his rock hardening jutsu, physical attacks (excluding lightning based attacks) have no effect on him.
Itachi and Kisame both rounds. If Itachi really wanted he would've killed Sasuke and almost half the Akatsuki (he needs to be healthy though) and Kisame needed 7 gates guy.
You're underestimating Kakuzu and Hidan; Kakuzu is the most destructive member of the group, and with one drop of blood Hidan could take down Kisame, or everyone in the group, with relative ease.
And let's not forget Deidara's flight advantage along with Tobi's intangibility.
I think this has been done before, but i couldn't find it so am not so sure.
-Itachi and Kisame
-Sasori and Orochimaru
-Kakuzu and Hidan
-Deidara and Tobi
-Black and white zetsu
-Obito remains in his Tobi personality; only Tobi is being considered here (feats and all) not Obito
-No knowledge for anyone.
-Team Taka is as strong as they were the last time they were truly together as team taka and akatsuki members.
Location: Empty desert landscape
This is an all out brawl between all teams.
1st Class victory: Last team standing
2nd class victory: Last man standing
Round 1: speed equalized
Round 2: Speed not equal
@Low: @taichokage: Has anyone considered the possibility of Bluenote leveling the playing field with his gravity; and by that, i mean he should be able to slow them down with his powers, possibly even bring them to a complete halt, leaving both Priscilla and Teresa helpless.
@HungryWorld: The gauntlet is from the bottom up
Gauntlet matches- Matches where a character(s) go up against multiple characters in a row. Battle conditions in the opening post should specify the characters that the one running the gauntlet will be up against and if the character(s) running the gauntlet gets fully recovered between matches, limited recovery time or must fight the next opponent(s) in line immediately afterward. Up to ten characters/ teams can be used in a gauntlet match, should have effort put at structuring characters in line from weakest to strongest where possible and the majority of those in the gauntlet must be anime/ manga characters.
You need to cut down a few characters.
Not much an expert on Claymore. I'll wait and see when more folks comment.
Okay, didn't know about the restriction on number of characters; but it makes sense.
I ranked these bleach characters based on my opinion of strongest to weakest; they can be rearranged where necessary if i got it wrong.
2. Dangai Ichigo
3. Shikai Zaraki Kenpachi
4. R1 Ulquiorra
11. Grimmjow (awakened form)
12. Soifon (bankai)
13. Harribel (awakened form)
14. Renji (bankai)
15. Tosen (bankai)
16 Chad and Orihime (fighting as a team, i think there abilities compliment each other)
Teresa and Priscilla from Claymore fight their way through these bleach Characters. How far do they go?
Round 1: Priscilla and Teresa fight alone. How far does each go?
Round 2: Priscilla and Teresa fight as a team
Location: Hueco Mundo
All characters have knowledge about one another
All characters are blood lusted
Teresa and Priscilla are in their final awakened forms
+Sub round 1: Yamamoto shikai
Sub round 2: Yamamoto bankai (but no fire armor)
I tried to rank the Fairy Tail team from weakest to strongest (i am about 20 chapters behind so i might be wrong)
1. Dragon King
7. Mard Geer
10. Makarov (Prime)
19 . Mystogan
Teresa and Priscilla from Claymore fight their way through these Fairy Tail Characters. How far do they go?
Fight 1: Priscilla and Teresa fight alone. How far does each go?
Fight 2: Priscilla and Teresa fight as a team
Round 1 (for each fight): Priscilla and Teresa pre-awakening
Round 2 (for each fight): Priscilla and Teresa in final awakened forms
All characters have knowledge about one another
All characters blood lusted
Characters that normally fight together or in teams can help each other out in case of an unfair match (e.g Gray and Natsu)
I personally do not hate fairy tail, but it has a tendency to infuriate me because i once thought it was a great series, and then it feels like, out of nowhere, it began nosediving. My irritation comes from the fact that i used to enjoy it, i want to continue to enjoy it now but i can't because i don't think it is very good and i can't stand the stuff Hiro does. Basically i get angry at any show that was once good, then got bad, because then i can't watch it anymore and i can't ignore all the wasted potential.
I jumped back on the SAO train in season 2; but then they left Gun Gale, went back to the elf thing for reasons i cannot even begin to comprehend and, at least according to me, it became terrible again. They basically removed all the life threatening stakes that made part 1 so good.
SAO and fairy tail are the same, in that they could both be really good; but they are not. They come right to the edge of greatness and double back, making it so hard to defend them.
I have been rewatching Naruto Shipudden episodes and i have realized that even the lower tier characters are so much faster than most people given them credit; so i am not sold on the whole Bleach>> Naruto in speed. But in this case, Ulquiora has to be faster, though speed is equalized so that doesn't matter.
Flight gives him the advantage over Naruto, but he will have to go into his second form to win the fight. I just don't see his Ceros hurting Naruto otherwise. If flight was restricted, that would change things entirely. Naruto could probably take it 6 out of 10 times.
When the sins use their sacred treasures, the results are usually overwhelming, such as Diana's mother catastrophe and the chaos King causes with his chestiefol. No way Ban has his sacred treasure. Speaking of which, even if you ignore the other sins, there is no way the straw hats can win with ban around. The man has been split in half twice so far and, each time, all that accomplished was to slow him down. He was up and ready to fight Hendricksen two or three chapters after.
No one is putting him down, not before his snatch does its thing. Whatever the outcome, Sanji has to die first. He's almost irrelevant.
This week I watched the movie John Wick, with Keanu Reeves. If you're looking a stylish and brutal action movie, this is your kind of ****
Just watched John Wick. It's pretty amazing. Keannu Reeves is back
Is that the one said to be Reeves' best work since the Matrix?
@takashichea: Sorry! Never noticed the Star Wars image contest.
Yes. Maybe it's because i haven't seen Keannu Reeves do anything noteworthy since The Matrix but it is surprisingly amazing. The premise sounds so silly (someone kills his dog and he goes on a rampage) but they somehow manage to make it work.
