    Aang in anime team?

    Video game side should win.

    Very amusing match. Batman is totally pointless as a referee since he doesn’t have the reaction time to even see the speedsters here with the exception of Eren, Edward, and Aang sometimes, which makes Eren and Edward irrelevant during scenario 1. I don’t know all the characters but so far I’d say:

    Scenario 1: Natus, Ichigo, and Luffy play 3 on 1 against Dante

    Scenario 2: Natsu, Ichigo, and Luffy play 3 on 1 against Dante again and Aang’s bending keeps the other team from doing anything while he hides behind Edward’s constructs and Eren being tall.

    Scenario 3: All hell breaks loose but Aang’s bending takes out most of team video games while Ichigo kills Dante allowing Luffy to score at will.

    Nitpick that Avatar is a western work.
    On topic, video game would win.

    This is the most serious rugby match I have ever seen…

    Well in scenero 1 team video games should take this. Most of the characters do not rely on powers but rather physical capabilities. Cloud, Dante and Sora are highly trained and are already superhuman without their powers. Oh and Kirby can fly since it is not considered a power for him since he puffs in air and floats.

    Scenero 2 is where team anime wins. Their magic is way stronger than team 1 which completely overrides their physical limitations. The same 3 video game characters have very limited magic up their sleeves which can cost them their match. Kirby will no longer be the only one flying around…

    Scenerio 3
    ???
    I don’t know, it could go both ways since it is a death match.

  5. Darth Bombad September 1, 2014 at 7:28 am -      #5

    (Looks at match title)….Deja vu anyone?

  6. Neon Lord September 1, 2014 at 8:51 am -      #6

    Batman gives everyone a red card (or whatever the rugby equivalent is). Batman wins.

  7. Rookie September 1, 2014 at 8:54 am -      #7

    There is not a single useless character in team 2, while team 1 have Eren and he… well not great, in this match I mean!

    While Aang will be a very good member for his team (he is not from anime though, so Batman will banish him))))

    Kinda sad that no one is using any JJBA characters for such matches.

  8. Zazax September 1, 2014 at 8:57 am -      #8

    Would Cloud be penalized for ‘too many men on the field’ if he breaks out his summons in scenario 2?

    “Scenero 2 is where team anime wins. Their magic is way stronger than team 1 which completely overrides their physical limitations.”
    So… Cloud All-Silences Team Anime the moment the match starts. Provided it’s legal (I assume it is, since magic is in play). Now what?

  9. Rookie September 1, 2014 at 9:23 am -      #9

    @Zazax

    “So… Cloud All-Silences Team Anime the moment the match starts. Provided it’s legal (I assume it is, since magic is in play). Now what?”

    If I remember right, some creatures are immune to this, as well as most of the bosses.
    Team 1 (except for Eren, but hey, he doesn’t have magic) should count as boss-level “creatures”.

  10. Friendlysociopath September 1, 2014 at 10:08 am -      #10

    Ah, just to clear a few things up before/in case this gets out of hand.
    1) Samus has her armor, my bad, I didn’t know better. I thought Zero was part of her name (Don’t judge me too harshly)
    2) For the first two scenarios the goal cannot be blocked except by a person. Example: Aang can’t just raise a wall in front of the goal, that’s why I thought Eren would be a good team member.

  11. Mea quidem sententia September 1, 2014 at 10:13 am -      #11

    The rule is that if the incarnation is not specified, we go with the most recent incarnation. I take that to mean the most recent game. For Link, that would be The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and for Zamus, that’d be Metroid: Other M.

    In one of the Zelda games, the description for the Pegasus Boots is to dash with the speed of the legendary steed. The name of the boots would imply Pegasus himself. I tried finding white, Greek horses that were of Greek origin and the one that seemed to fit the bill was the Peneia pony.

    Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find the speed of that pony. My fiancee said 11 mi/h because of what type of horse it is and how many hands high it is. This is not definitive, so I don’t know if I can use that for the speed.

    In ALBW, Link acquires the Pegasus Boots. It takes 360 milliseconds for start-up. Not bad. In the video below, Link covers at least 15 bushes. If I settle for the typical 5’7″, despite Link appearing to be 16 in this game, then that would mean Link is 1.7018 m.

    1.7018 m. * 15 = 25.527 m. Link takes 720 ms to cover the distance in that video.

    25.527 m. / 0.720 s = 35.45 m/s, or 79.28 mi/h

    I suppose that’ll be useful for the second scenario. The first scenario, however, Zamus was able to outrun an avalanche in MOM and this was without the aid of the Speed Booster. That occurs after. The appearance of that avalanche looks like a powder type. The low-end would be 25 m/s, or 55.9 mi/h.

    The Power Suit, of course, does boost Samus’ athletic abilities. And since Samus would have to be running faster than the avalanche, I may as well just round 25 m/s to 30 m/s, which gives Samus a running speed of 67.08 mi/h



    www.avalanche.org/moonstone/zoning/avalanche%20dynamics.htm

    Edit: So, we’re using Samus in her powered armor? In that case, Samus dashes at supersonic speeds (411.6 m/s; 921.6 mi/h), or 3 3/4 football fields in 1 second.

  12. Rookie September 1, 2014 at 10:18 am -      #12

    Yay, Samus gets her armor!
    More chances for team 2.

    Not self-advertising, but hey, a picture

    “If I remember right, some creatures are immune to this, as well as most of the bosses.
    Team 1 (except for Eren, but hey, he doesn’t have magic) should count as boss-level “creatures”.”
    That’s game mechanics there, friend. Not only is there no universal boss immunity in FF7 (for example, one of the best ways to kill Ruby Weapon is to inflict Stop on it and pound on it. Some bosses are immune to some effects, but it varies from boss to boss), but something’s only immune to something out of gameplay if they have an actual reason to be, like a robot being immune to poison or someone being immune/resistant to Toad because they’ve demonstrated resistance to polymorph effects.

  15. Ragnorke September 1, 2014 at 11:00 am -      #15

    Team 2 stomps the first scenario, most of them have augmented superstrength and speed, and don’t need to rely on powers or weapons.

    Scenario 2 is the debatable scenario. I’m a huge fan of Edward, so i’ll jump in a bit later.

  16. Alpha or Omega September 1, 2014 at 12:46 pm -      #16

    In Scenario 2, Dante should be allowed his devil trigger form which allows flight and has jumped several times his height.
    /
    Sora also has strange stuff like strength to knock back skyscrapers and he has magic.
    /
    Cloud has his hax materia such as given the ability to have attacks miss him, polymorph others, and change the battlefield. He can also use silence to negate any magic abilities, and use summons for more players.
    He also has the strength to cut parts of a skyscraper.
    /
    Samus also has the ability to freeze stuff in mid-air and since the ball is indestructible, she can freeze it to prevent the score on the goal.
    /
    Link is useless, moving on.
    /
    I have no idea who Ramza is.
    /
    Kirby is eight inches in diameter. He’s small and useless.
    /
    In the fight however
    Dante can use his devil trigger to gain flight and start shooting lightning downwards and to attack anyone with flight.
    /
    Sora is capable, as said before, knock skyscrapers away.
    He’s also capable of short range teleportation, healing magic, bring lightning, fire and ice.
    /
    Cloud is pretty hax with materia.
    He has materia that causes attacks to miss, can silence magic of others, and can use death which as it impies gives instant death.
    He also has the aforementioned strength to cut down parts of a skyscraper.
    Cloud can jump really high if not fly.
    /
    Samus is super sonic with the speed booster, has infinite jumps which makes her capable of flight, and can drop powerbombs and super missiles everywhere.
    He diffusion missile also gives her a large blast radius for her missiles.
    She’s also capable of freezing others with her beams and missile.
    /
    Link can…shoot some arrows and stuff.
    I don’t know which Link we’re using.
    /
    Kirby is useless.

  17. Mea quidem sententia September 1, 2014 at 12:47 pm -      #17

    Oh, for the second scenario, if Kirby has his powers, that should mean he can travel Mach 5, since that’s the description for the Jet ability. It seems to only be short bursts, though.

  18. Alpha or Omega September 1, 2014 at 1:07 pm -      #18

    Regarding powers, I’m pretty sure we give powers that are standard equipment unless scenario says so.

  19. wingedlion September 1, 2014 at 1:21 pm -      #19

    “Regarding powers, I’m pretty sure we give powers that are standard equipment unless scenario says so.”

    scenario 1 says no powers.

  20. Commander Cross September 1, 2014 at 1:23 pm -      #20

    Well, potentially speaking it’s kind of nice to hear Cloud Strife in a fairly decent fight again.

    I find him tolerable and whatnot but still, I had to say it.

    Also, which version of Link are we using in here?
    We using a single version of Link with all the stuff said Link has had in all the games that one appeared in?
    A Link based on one of the 3 Great Timelines?
    Hyrule Warriors Link?
    Total Composite Link?

    More info would be nice, please.

  21. Alpha or Omega September 1, 2014 at 1:28 pm -      #21

    “scenario 1 says no powers.”

    I was referring to scenario 2 and 3 which Mea was also talking about.

  22. Cassie Hack September 1, 2014 at 1:35 pm -      #22

    Just to clear one tiny nitpick up. Other M isn’t the most recent version of Samus, it’s actually the second to last game in the timeline. The most recent version would be Samus from Fusion.

  23. wingedlion September 1, 2014 at 1:37 pm -      #23

    “I was referring to scenario 2 and 3 which Mea was also talking about.”

  25. Mea quidem sententia September 1, 2014 at 1:48 pm -      #25

    Commander Cross, the most recent would be A Link Between Worlds, meaning we’re using that incarnation, unless otherwise specified by the OP.

    Cassie Hack, MOM is the most recent game released, which is my understanding as being the most recent incarnation. Link from Spirit Tracks was considered the most recent. I suppose it depends on which timeline you’re going by.

    Either way, it really doesn’t matter. Samus has the same upgrades for the most part.

  26. Private Khaos September 1, 2014 at 2:24 pm -      #26

    Has everyone forgotten that Kirby can COPY the enemies abilities if he manages to inhale them?! If that little pink puff ball gets Eren, Aang, or someone else on Team 1 then we have Titan Kirby, Avatar Kirby, Rubber Kirby, etc. That is though if he can only get ahold of one of them. A good plan would be for Team 2 to help Kirby get ahold of someone on Team 1 so he’ll have a power new ability to fight with

    “Has everyone forgotten that Kirby can COPY the enemies abilities if he manages to inhale them?! If that little pink puff ball gets Eren, Aang, or someone else on Team 1 then we have Titan Kirby, Avatar Kirby, Rubber Kirby, etc”

    Well… who’s the most powerful person Kirby has inhaled?
    Saying he can inhale anyone is a NLF.

  28. Cassie Hack September 1, 2014 at 2:36 pm -      #28

    LoZ has a complex timeline, and with it multiple Links, the Metroid games are simply released out of order. While Other M is the newest, Fusion is technically Samus’ most recent incarnation due to story timeline.

  29. OriginalA September 1, 2014 at 2:41 pm -      #29

    “the most recent would be A Link Between Worlds, meaning we’re using that incarnation, unless otherwise specified by the OP.”

    Only in release order. Timeline wise LoZ and AoL take place after ALBW, which would put LoZ/AoL Link as the most recent Link (of that timeline).

    “MOM is the most recent game released, which is my understanding as being the most recent incarnation. Link from Spirit Tracks was considered the most recent. I suppose it depends on which timeline you’re going by.”

    This is a self contradicting statement. Not only has Recent Incarnation (to my knowledge) has always been the most recent internally chronological version of the canon rather than production order (in Metroid’s case that would be Fusion rather than Prime, Prime 2, Hunters, Prime 3, or MOM despite all of those being released at or after Fusion’s release date), but also Skyward Sword came out more recently than Spirit Tracks. By your own reasoning of the rule, Skyward Sword Link would be the most recent Link prior to ALBW’s release.

    The CI rule does state that they are their most recent, battle ready, incarnation within their own continuities. That last qualification would mean that Link is either LoZ/AoL, Spirit Tracks, or FSA Links. Fusion Samus would also be in play.

    I doubt Kirby can inhale anyone where because he’s only like 8 inches tall.

  30. Alpha or Omega September 1, 2014 at 4:25 pm -      #30

    Actually, I think there’s a scenario where Kirby is actually useful.
    While he can’t inhale anyone, he can inhale any projectile/weapon as long as it isn’t bigger or longer than 2 times his size.
    With that, he can actually turn into one of his transformation.

  31. Private Khaos September 1, 2014 at 4:45 pm -      #31

    @alpha

    As long as he can inhale something or someone to get an ability that’ll be useful he’s not out of the fighting scenarios. Maybe Cloud could give him something so Kirby can use that materia’s power

  32. Ranger Lowk September 1, 2014 at 4:57 pm -      #32

    Sora can BFR multiple people at once.

    Rugby rules have nothing concerning teleporting team mates
    /
    Of course, just the sheer act of bringing weapons, having enhanced humans, wearing questionable clothing, etc. would be against the rules.

    I’ve always wondered how a football match between Marvel and DC would go. There would have to certain restrictions on speed for some characters, as well as strength….

  35. Mea quidem sententia September 1, 2014 at 8:39 pm -      #35

    I know that, Cassie Hack. As I said before, it doesn’t really make any difference, since most of Samus’ upgrades are the same.

    OriginalA, if we’re going by timeline instead of the recent game, all right. ALBW is the most recent game released, which I was going by. Of course, if SS was the last game released before ALBW, I would have went with SS. I’ll take your word on which is the most recent in terms of internal timeline.

    As for Kirby, AoO is right about Kirby’s ability to inhale larger objects. In Kirby’s Return to Dream Land, he could inhale larger and multiple objects at once. I’m not saying Kirby will be able to inhale anyone in this match, though. Objects, however . . .

  36. Ragnorke September 1, 2014 at 8:39 pm -      #36

    Either them or Bat-mite and She-Hulk. Or Ambush Bug and Deadpool, though I think they would make better cheerleaders.

    “I’ve always wondered how a football match between Marvel and DC would go. There would have to certain restrictions on speed for some characters, as well as strength….”

    I feel like it’d come down to who gets the ball last. I don’t see Marvel doing too hot against DC’s speed nor do I see DC doing too hot against Marvel’s overall superior strength. Pretty much every down’s gonna be a touchdown since I don’t see either team overcoming either team’s advantage.

    Basically gonna be can DC stop the Juggernaut and can Marvel outrun the Flash.

    Although I feel like Marvel would have the scariest lineman of all time.

  42. Epicazeroth September 2, 2014 at 8:04 pm -      #42

    Bat-Mite and Deadpool should be the commentators. Bat-Mite is fourth-wall-breaking, right?

    And I feel like superhero sports would have to be in tiers in terms of strength. Like: peak human-, building to street level, city level, and planetary+. Cause Spiderman cannot play with Thor. And Iron Man can’t play defense against Superman.

    And the field would have to be gigantic. Like, they’d have to play in space for the Cosmic Flying Bricks round. Maybe there would be a separate round for people with strength but no speed/flight (Colossus, Juggernaut, Thing, Hulk, etc.)

    But yeah; this would be an awesome suggestion with any sport.

  43. Friendlysociopath September 3, 2014 at 8:17 am -      #43

    I just had a weird “What if?” idea.

    What if Batman died, and Kirby absorbed his powers and his personality?
    (Think SSB Kirby, not the 8 inch tall one)
    How would this change things in Gotham? In the Justice League? In DC comics as a whole? Imagine Batman with the power to steal other people’s powers!

    It depends on what you consider ‘powers’. If Luffy’s powers are only considered his DF and Haki, then he has a huge upper hand on everyone else. Luffy’s speed and physical strength do not come form his DF or haki. He does get a massive speed boost from Gear second, a DF ability, but is still massively hypersonic without it.

    www.mangastream.to/one-piece-chapter-285-page-13.html

    Luffy carrying a huge giant ball of solid gold attached to his arm while climbing up a large stalk.

    www.mangastream.to/one-piece-chapter-294-page-4.html

    Shows how far he dragged the ball behind him as he climbed.

    www.mangastream.to/one-piece-chapter-297-page-12.html

    Luffy extending and withdrawing said gold ball quickly.

    www.mangastream.to/one-piece-chapter-298-page-13.html

    Luffy is able to punch hard enough that the golden ball shatters off his hand.

    Luffy is simply a physical powerhouse even without his Devil Fruit.

    www.mangastream.to/one-piece-chapter-363-page-6.html

    Due to his DF, Luffy is stuck b between two large buildings. Although his DF allows him to get into this predicament, it is his own strength that allows him to free himself.

    www.mangastream.to/one-piece-chapter-363-page-13.html

    Luffy is able to push apart these two buildings to free himself.

    Both of these feats occured before the 2 year timeskip which Luffy spent training to be able to face challenges he was nowhere near strong enough to face as he was. Even without the TS, Luffy has enough physical dominance to ensure team anime a victory in the first competition.
