    He hasn't been in the situation to need to use that type of strength again yet.
    Huh?
    That wasn't an armbar by any means, and it was actually classified under jobber aura.

    I say we move "spirit" from the fourth element to the third, since most spirits and spirit based existances are variations of astral projections, making them invunerable to "soulswords" but classifiable in some way.
    That or we create a fifth element where all spirit's or ghosts will refer to.

    Battledomology

    A new word that is very suitable for OBD.
    X
    Battledomology is the art of debating VS matches and comparisons between fictional characters and fictional universes.

    While its a fact of life that everyone has their favorites in fiction(e.g. Characters,Universes, Special Moves, Francies, Etc.) and will support them, Battledomology is a Science where practitioners DO NOT LET preferences get in the way of debating the characters. Proper Battledomology is done by analyzing demonstrated material and creating reasonable conclusions based on it, not empty speculations. Making a biased conclusion based on your favoritism on certain fictional characters,universes,etc against in the face of the evidence is NOT PROPER BATTLEDOMOLOGY and is actually wanking.

    Battledomology can involve more than just merely VS battles between fictional characters, universes, and franchises -it can comparisons of stuff outside of battle such as who is the more intelligent character, who has better feats not related to battle, which universe has more advanced technology,which universe has more effective magic,etc.

    The best best site on the net for Battledomology is the Outskirts Battle Dome, where wanking is not tolerated and Battledomological threads are almost always done with logic and reasoning.

    A person who practice and study the Science of Battledomology is called a Battledomologist.

    In fact, I'm the guy who posted that word in urban Dictionary! what do you think?Also, FYI, Iam a member of Nevermind's Deadliest Fictional Warrior, not some random guy making useless words up.:)

    I use CounterSwarmer as my name in most sites FYI and will be changing my username in this site soon.

    How about Thread Wiper I made up. :maybe

    Thread Wiper: The debate counterpart of Destructive Capability of Life Wipers. In the instance when a majority of consensus favors a side. A thread wiper asserts a logic that refutes all. Thus force the majority consensus to withdraw and force to come up a new counterpoint. Results may vary as stalemate, inconclusive, changing opinion, and potential closing threads.

    Other Notable OBDer has done it in the pass. You know who you are. :pimp

    Scorched Earth: When the splash damage of one of the characters causes enough of a colateral cataclysm, that even though does not suffice to defeat the character itself, it is enough to render the envyroment uninhabitable and thus achieving survivalist victory
    Example: The Hulk busts the planet the battle is taking planet on, thus killing goku who cannot inhabit even in short term on space, while the Hulk survives

    What does Composite mean? In OBD terms, of course.

    It usually means ALL versions of the character. But often the OP should clarify what they mean when they say composite.

    Examples:

    - Composite Movie Godzilla, this means that Godzilla gets all feats that happen in the movie. However you can also say Composite Godzilla all media, which would then mean all Godzillas from the movies, television series, and comics.

    - Composite Charizard, this means a Charizard with anime, game, and manga feats.

    - Composite Animated Superman, all feats from the animated DC television series and movies

    Again it is very important that the OP specify what kind of composition, and if you are ever confused just ask which versions are to be included.

    The literacy method answers a different question to the one we usually ask in the OBD. The literacy method asks "who would win in a crossover" whilst the OBD asks "who would win in a realistic battle". For example, using the literacy method, naruto vs luffy vs ichigo would end in a draw, because they are all the main character in their respective mangas and the authors woud like to respect all of the relevent fanbases, goku vs darkseid would end with goku winning because he's the "good" character etc. The OBD's default assumptions means approaches like this are not usually used, although it is possible to set up this kind of debate in the OP.
    Of course, the OBD is different from stardestroyer's approach too, because it usually assumes that fictions are set in another universe which may confirm to other (trope-like) laws of physics whilst stardestroyer usually assumes everything happens in our universe and can be explained as such. It's not that there is a "correct" answer because each approach is answering a slightly different question.

    Of course composite superman is a little confusing in itself. :maybe

    Most of the threads are outdated or just no longer relevant.
    But it'd be still nice to not miss it.

    assuming the standard of twenty paces of distance between the combatants, it's supposed to be ten times the speed of the other dude, from what I remember

    starting at up close fisticuffs distance, just being twice as fast is an overwhelming advantage

    Originally good, it followed OBD standards . Now, not so much . But still, I reckon it's not fucked up like spacebattles, comicvine(Comic vine is fucked up when it comes to anime/manga matches of any kind), KillerMovies, etc .

    Dunno . Must be a forum .
