Collateral Damage

collateral-damage

Suggested by Friendlysociopath

Reed Richards is preparing emergency evacuation and protection contingencies for how to handle metahumans fighting in the city. To help with his planning, he’s created a virtual model of Marvel’s New York and has given several characters that tend to cause a lot of property damage a free-for-all contest to see who would win in a fight in order to see how much destruction would be caused.

Goku (Dragon Ball Z)

Black Star (Soul Eater)

Date Masamune (Sengoku Basara)

Haruko (FLCL)

Dracula (Lord of Shadows)

Natsu Dragneel (Fairy Tail)

Caius Ballad (Final Fantasy XIII)

Dante (Devil May Cry)

Kratos (God of War)

Thor (Avengers 2)

Haruko has access to any guitar she wants

Dracula can only have his Lord of Shadows + Mirror of Fate abilities

Anyone can take the title of Guardian from Caius

No timefuckery, no soulfuckery

Thoughtfully provided soundtrack: Sorcerer Remix, X-Ray Dog

    I hope they all enjoy fighting in building melting heat cuz Natsu is literally hot enough to do that now.

    I think blackstar is durable enough to be in this match, easily. Seeing as he was able to swallow a nuclear explosion. But he doesn’t cause anything remotely near that of damage

    I’m really surprised that Vash and Knives aren’t a part of this match; Vash is considered an “act of God” by insurance companies since he causes that much collateral damage just by being there-and Knives is a dick-so I find it odd that they aren’t here.

    In any case, Goku has this in the bag-especially if we’re talking about collateral damage.

    Well there goes the Virtual Neighborhood.
    That’s all I’m gonna say about it that’s concrete, hope evacuations will be ready once the bio-data’s gathered.

    What can Kratos do? He is good at killing things, but by himself I honestly can’t remember any good AOE collateral damage feats from him.

    I don’t know every one one the list, but out of the ones i do know, Goku stomps. So that is the actual battle over. As for the damage… There isn’t a planet left…. right?

  7. Friendlysociopath June 25, 2015 at 11:39 am -      #7

    Clarification
    It’s still a free-for-all where one person wins by beating everyone else; the damage is just the reason they’re there.

    Also, Goku has never decided destroying the planet was a good idea, so I kind of doubt he’d do it.

    Fun version of picture that I made

    “There isn’t a planet left…. right?”

    DB characters have shown multiple times that a planet exploding around them is enough to kill them. So, I doubt Goku just pews the planet, although I don’t see why he couldn’t leave moon sized craters in a few places.

    @Friendly Do the characters know that they’re in a virtual world? And do they know that they’re meant to cause property damage?

    Do the characters know that they’re in a virtual world?

    No, that would compromise the experiment results. If it helps, think of them as programs that would work exactly as the characters would in terms of personality and such.

    And do they know that they’re meant to cause property damage?

    Everyone on that list was chosen because at some point or another they caused massive damage simply as a byproduct of their fighting.
    I think I got too caught up in the scenario, it’s a regular Free For All, just with some flavor text.

    although I don’t see why he couldn’t leave moon sized craters in a few places.

    For one thing he’s not exactly untouchable in space; I know Date and Haruko can fly up there to fight him if he tries that, and I suspect Thor can do the same.

    @Friendly Alright, just wondering.
    =
    “For one thing he’s not exactly untouchable in space;”

    Doesn’t really need to go up to space to do that though.
    =
    “I suspect Thor can do the same.”

    Don’t know about the other two, but MCU Thor isn’t fast enough to compete against Goku, especially if he goes SSGSS.
    =
    Also, since Goku has the highest destructive output here, is there any reason why he doesn’t blow away the competition? I mean, he doesn’t need to do anything on the level of planet busting to win, unless the other characters have durability feats I don’t know of. Besides Goku and MCU Thor, my knowledge is very limited on the other characters or nonexistant.

    Well for starts, his MO is always to fight with martial arts first; ki blasts second. Continuing that thought though, what’s the strongest attack he’s ever put out that wasn’t the fabled “Kamehameha that will destroy the Earth”? Because:

    static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/14/146951/4195289-9058133894-63023.jpg
    Black Star swallows a nuclear blast without too much fuss

    youtu.be/q8FvM8H_0-k?t=2m44s
    Haruko bats a giant baseball hard enough that just the shockwave destroys a generous section of the city

    youtu.be/iwVe1OR_fWE?t=1m
    Date fights and outright overpowers this guy, and just about every fight in that series causes shockwaves that dry up rivers and toss people in the air- from miles away.

    I’m not sure where Natsu stands, but currently he’s able to burn hot enough to melt buildings so that’s going to be uncomfortable for Goku to say the least.

    “, what’s the strongest attack he’s ever put out that wasn’t the fabled ‘Kamehameha that will destroy the Earth’?”

    Off the top of my head, the one at 1:51



    Tarbel calced his punch at being around 38KT+. I don’t recall Goku himself ever doing anything destructive on his own voliton. Mostly others who do the attacks that cause large scale damage, like Piccolo, Vegeta, Frieza, Nappa, etc.

    Side note, the anime might not have started but the manga has for DBS:

    “Also, Goku has never decided destroying the planet was a good idea, so I kind of doubt he’d do it.”

    So, this is actually Goku, or a computer simulation of Goku that thinks it is im; same for all of them. k, got it.

    Because if this was just a simulation in order to determine damage, you would set the simulation for the worst case scenario.

    Because if this was just a simulation in order to determine damage, you would set the simulation for the worst case scenario.

    Not really, this isn’t about worst-case scenario, it’s about the average. Worst-case is some asshole like Nappa casually oneshots the entire city in half a second- not much you can do about that.

    Side note, the anime might not have started but the manga has for DBS:

    coooooooool

    “coooooooool”

    AT wrote it too, but I think it’s a different artist.

    Kinda wanna root for Caius here. Probably my favourite FF villain, doesn’t hurt that he actually won too. He beat Savior Lightning and then flung shit into the fan and laughed.

    Erm feats..
    City busting meteor, teleportation, time stops (banned), shrugging off Lightning’s magic, casual bullet timing ( Lightning’s gun is a railgun to boot, and Snow in the Collesium danced around machine gun fire and froze a missle in the air. Caius >>> Snow).
    I think he dodged summoned lightning in Requiem of the Goddess.
    Can’t think of much more off the top of my head.

    Do they know that they actually need to stab Caius in the heart to end his god-fuelled immortality? Or is he the god now? I dunno, he pretty much took Etro’s place at the end of Lightning Returns. Guardian of the dead for all eternity or some such.
