Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

So, I watched the documentary and what was interesting was getting more information about stuff that I already knew about.

 

Just some examples:

  • I already knew the fact that the phrase 'Let them eat cake' was both A) a mistranslation (the original phrase was «Qu'ils mangent de la brioche», which means 'Let them eat brioche) and B) never said by Antoinette, considering it came from a book written when she was the 9 year old princess of Austria.

    But what I didn't know was that the quote was apparently first attributed to her 50 years after her execution and even then, it said it was a rumor
  • Knew that there were only seven people actually imprisoned in the Bastille when it was stormed. Didn't know that of those seven people: four of them were forgers (who were quickly rearrested), two of them were people who'd nowadays be in a psychiatric institute (one of them was an Irishman who thought he was goddamn Julius Caesar), and one of them was like a sex offender
  • France spent a shit ton of money helping us over here in the USA during our War for Independence. Turns out that they literally spent three times their annual income on the war. (They said that France had an annual income of 600,000,000 [didn't say if it was dollars, euro, pounds, or even livres] and the costs of helping us get our independence was nearly 2 billion).
  • I knew about how Louis XVI and Antoinette attempted to flee from Paris, with differing opinions on whether or not they were going to flee to another country so they could get help taking back their country or trying to rule from another palace near the, I think border between France and the HRE, and then they were captured and this eventually resulted in their execution. Well, didn't know that one revolutionary who supported keeping the monarchy actually convinced the rest that the two of them had been kidnapped and didn't flee on their own accord, so they remained safe at least for a little while.

But obviously the greatest part of the documentary was when THE ROSE OF VERSAILLES WAS IN IT

I did not expect a PBS documentary about a historical figure to reference an anime that was only loosely based on her.

Guessing it was to talk about her impact later on. Still, that's pretty cool.

Yeah literally the last few minutes of the documentary was talking about how Antoinette is seen today and it was filmed at like some exhibit about her in France and they showed something in the exhibit that was just depictions of her throughout history so like paintings, photos of her portrayals in movies and TV, and one of the images was from the manga.

 

 

I did not expect a PBS documentary about a historical figure to reference an anime that was only loosely based on her.

I mean to be fair, this was an image from the manga which was more focused on Antoinette at first.

 

Remember in comparison to the anime, which basically had nothing about her actual childhood, the first several chapters of the manga are about her childhood in Austria.

 

Speaking of, I gotta get the second volume of that manga, think it's already come out.

I know its a triple post but apparently that Rose of Versailles alternate universe side-story school game came out last hugging year and I still have no idea what the hug the game is about.

 

I mean I know it's like a romance game but that's it.

I'm guessing you play Oscar and you go around romancing the other girls.

No, it has an original main character and a lot of the other characters are just based on Rose of Versailles characters. Like the Oscar character is named Nozomi, Antoinette is Mari, etc.

 

The principal is hugging Louis XV.

Is it a really bad dub like Headmasters where the english is super dry and doesn't even attempt to be more dramatic?

Cure Macaron looks more like Cure Strawberry Tart, but Chocolate's hat just looks like it's filled with purple paint.
