Not going to spoil, but I thought you guys might enjoy this.
Haha this was entertaining to see ( when someone said majin buy and Kirby were next I didn't believe it )
Lost ALL Creditably with Death Battle after Goku v Superman.I could of seen either one winning, It's just that what they said is complete bulls**t!
I think that the Goku Vs Superman Death Battle was the best researched and most entertaining episode they ever did.On top of that, I feel like they did fudge the facts a bit... in places that would give Goku the edge. For instance, they use a conglomerate version of Goku, using information from every incarnation he'd had up until Battle of Gods (which hadn't yet been released), but they cut out any pre-Crisis material that Superman could have drawn on because, let's face it, it would have given him an unfair advantage. They also weasel around Superman's "weakness" to magic, which isn't "Superman gets weak when he's hit with a magic stick" but rather "When Zatanna talks backwards and Billy Batson says "Shazam!", Supes is screwed." If you're miffed by, say, Goku's inability to bench more than a few tons, that's definitely true, though it wouldn't be accurate to determine his striking strength based on his lifting strength because even in the real world, it's largely dependant on how fast you move to begin with. Iron Fist from Marvel can't bench more than a normal person in good physical condition, but it's not keeping him from punching Helicarriers out of the sky. They are, however, correlated, and the real strength of Dragon Ball characters has always been in ki attacks anyway.If you want to attack their credibility, the Rainbow Dash Vs Starscream or Wonder Woman Vs Rogue battles would probably be the worst they've done. The Rainbow Dash one was a joke to begin with, but everyone who loves their cape comics knows that Wonder Woman is a neck-breaking Dragon Ball character in disguise who would one-shot that redneck mutie.All said and done, I actually think that this episode existed mainly to mess with Dragon Ball fans. Why? Because they're very, very easy to mess with. Outside of maybe Naruto fans, (exhibit A in this very thread, no offense) I can't think of a single fandom that's more unwilling to accept that their favorite characters aren't actually as powerful as they believe they are. When a normal group of fans -- let's say Saint Seiya fans, since it's another classic shounen where planet-destroying characters are a dime a dozen -- is approached with the comment "You know, the main character of your series is really strong, but they're not that great and would get their shit knocked in by Galactus", the typical response is usually, "Yeah, you're right, but that doesn't affect my enjoyment of my favorite series because it's about more than how strong the characters are." If you tell this to Dragon Ball fans, you will get a lot of people saying that no, you're wrong, and Goku is not only stronger than the Big G, but can bench destroy the universe because of something they pulled out of their ass.They really do bring this upon themselves. I like a lot of "strong characters" -- characters who make Goku look like a fart in the wind -- but it's not like I take it as a blow to my ego when you dig up a character that would tear mai husbando to pieces. Most fans and fandoms don't, and it's that disconnect that makes it so easy to mess with Dragon Ball fans in this fashion.
Back on topic however, I feel like Buu should have won this match. No, not because Buu is my favourite character or I'm a butthurt DBZ fan, but rather I looked upon this situation just out of my own logic.First of all let me state that I do not know in detail the background/powers of Kirby or Buu. However I have played enough Kirby games to have the general gist of his powers. And I have watched all of DBZ plus it's movies, so I base my logic from those two memories I have of the characters.
Buu...Both Majin and Kid version is powerful. Like...I can't exactly describe it...those who've watched DBZ would know what I mean but I'm sure if either Buu versions punched Kirby, Kirby would lose all his health (like in the games). Essentially, he would die. Or best case scenario be knocked out unconscious. In this video, Kirby was able to guard against multiple blows. In the games, I believe that it's possible for Kirby's guard to break. That and you can't stay guarded forever. So my thinking in short form that is is simple. Buu > Kirby in terms of power. And probably speed. The warp star argument is valid if it's true that it can go the speed of light. However, Buu has the option (and did in the video) to destroy/disable the warp star as it's not indestructible.
And the ending of this video...something just bothers me. And I think it might be this: In the Goku vs Superman battle, they judged Goku's ability to take damage based upon his output force. Well based on that logic, that would mean Buu's final attack is the same strength as the amount of damage he can take. Soo....wouldn't that mean he can survive? I mean it's not like Kirby sucking up the giant energy ball Buu made could possibly make the ball of energy stronger in any means.
>Deathbattle says Buu is magical >Buu needed ki to get out of the sealed ball>In Goku VS Superman they say "Ki has no connection with magic":I
They actually point this out explicitly. Boo is literally the only powered character in the series who takes damage from something as mundane as bullets. Boo isn't durable at all, but it seems like that because he regenerates so well.
A rocket launcher still ripped a hole in him, Mike. (Memory might be unclear because it's late, but I'm fairly sure a clip of that was in the video) That's not saying much for his durability.
