Didn't watch. What's the next one?
Late is better than never
This comment is just... perfect.
So what's the next match?
Next match up is gonna be revealed in January.
Where would you rank it amongs other DB?
Haven't even watched it. Just heard the details about it from friends on skype. But from those details... i'd rank it near the bottom with shit like JB vs RB.
I mean, the thumbnail isn't really great imo.
Can't see why you didn't watch it
A character from MLP is in it. It's cancerous by default.
Even if its MLP, Deadpool's quality should normally balance it out
Only if he wins. Did he?
They got about thirty seconds into the fight before they both grabbed fourth wall objects for attack/defense.
Deadpool gets all happy to meet someone else who can fourth wall break, and they fuck off across other DB's basically screwing around.
Then they break into the real world, insult the whole DB team IRL, and the Deadpool reveals he's only mad cause they dragged him in again on his birthday.
The pony, being a pony, immediately declared this unacceptable and throws a massive party for DP back in ponyland.
God damn it DeathBattle.
You should know this already from DP vs Deathstroke but DB doesn't use Deadpool. It uses annoying AF memepool who has none of the good qualities or interesting character traits the actual deadpool has.
The amount of shit they heaped upon their own heads felt surprisingly cathartic to me, and it's completely in character for DP to make friends with talking ponies, if only so he can claim to be a bring for shots and giggles
Meh, I thought it was passable ok.
Cop-out, but ok.
I kinda expected them to get along.
The fights was "meh" and the animations was "meh".
Why is MLP cancer again?
Hell I'm a fan of MLP but even I can't stand Pinkie Pie. The least they could have done was have Deadpool beat the holy shit out of her and be insulted so many people seriously compare her to him because she breaks the 4th wall every now and again. All she needs now is to be actually entertaining, like Deadpool is.
Seriously though if they want to use MLP why the fuck don't they use the alicorns or the villains, the characters that are actually pretty powerful. If I see another MLP DB it'll probably just be Discord vs Q because they're played by the same guy and are basically the same character and that'll just be them trying to out reality warp each other.
People probably think it's overrated more than anything else. Basically the brony fandom and their overly enthusiastic response to the show makes people hate the show more than it really deserves IMO. Even at its worst the show is passable, certainly better than most kids shows I've seen in the last decade and its best its really good
The FiM show that basically is MLP now had the disadvantage of a) being a show aimed at small children and b) apparently not being total shit as a fantasy show.
The second point means it has fans outside the intended age group, I.e. bronies. The first point means everyone not a fan will diss the fans for liking it because the internet hates everything.
This leads to the fans becoming more defensive, loudly inflating the shows good points to try and justify their enjoyment of the show.
Which leads to other people ambivalent to the situation getting their virtual ears blown out by a show they could care less about. Cue backlash.
This adds to the hatedom and accelerates the process till it reaches singularity and explodes into a super-flame war where everyone on the internet either hates or loves the show, no exceptions.
After a while the dust settles, but everyone remembers the war and bringing up the show at all tends to trigger a minor resurgence.
This happens with any show that gets too popular, though.
Street Fighter's "Q"?
Star Trek's Q, Discord is not only voiced by the same actor but basically has a very similar personality and an almost identical power-set. He's pretty much the MLP version of this character.
MLP is a fine show.
It all went downhill when the fans became grown ass men, to which people started to call them out for it, either questioning their tastes or resorting to insults.
Instead of ignoring them and sticking to their boards and forums, they went with the worst response possible and paraded their love of the show very obnoxiously. Posting ponies on unrelated stuff, creating the brony term, making pony culture and trying to hook other people into it.
Basically the fans fuck it up for themselves. Now the show is synonymous with fedora tipping neckbeards.
I wonder about Flutter/Weiss opinion on this
Doesn't he spend most of his time on VBW nowadays?I see him over there way more than on this site,anyway.
He's most of the time on the DB and FT section
Huh, well thank you for that explanation everyone.
I only heard rumors of how it was cancer, since the fans tend to "ponify" everything.
Like, ponify other medias and such. "Spreading like a cancer"
I'm a fan myself, but doesn't make a fuss about it.
Shows decent for a kids program.Bronies just tend to exaggerate it's quality.The episode was just alright.It was no GvS1 or Solid Smake vs Sam Fisher but it also wasn't a repeat of Yang vs Tifa or Justin Bieber vs Rebecca Black.
Next Death Battle:
I have no idea who should win this one...
Croft generally speaking though Drake might be able to take reboot Lara.
I know next to nothing about these characters (and I doubt I can judge Lara going by Angelina's portrayal), could you please elaborate a little more on this result(s)?
Debatable as 2013 still has some pretty crazy stuff in it.(ripping down doors and shit.)
So, it can go either way... right?
I'm cautiously hopeful for this one.
The last time they did something like this was Snake vs Fisher, and that was probably their best video.
And the contestants are close enough to human that stats aren't much of an issue.
Well, pre-boot Lara has fought dinosaurs, stone guardians and such, which is way above drakes Leauge.
Her CQC is also better than drake's.
Episode is out:
I'm surprised Lara didn't get the Bayonetta treatment...
I guess DB can learn from mistakes sometimes.
plausible fight. animation was a bit choppy sometime and that model for nate was not good(but I can understand the "you take what you get" approach)
Agree. I would have lost my salt if she lost. Nate is good, bu he has no "Batman-training" that Laura has( she has been around more and has done some more bizarre, ridiculous shit than drake)
So Scrooge McDuck is up next?
I actually hope they include the time Scrooge tore down the smoke-stacks of that steamboat.
Would have been salty if she got that treatment. I like Nate, but I know he wouldn't beat Lara.
The dislike ratio is quite funny
Who the heck suggested this?
WOW! They really must be out of ideas.
Scrooge McDuck vs Shovel Knight. Seriously?
I can see the whole "old vs new" thingy, but the comparison ends there.
Who will BOP the other guy's head harder? Really? This is were we are going?
What can Shovel Knight do?
Scrooge will rape.
Yeah,no.Dude can outrun cannonballs,dodge meteors,and scales to Shield Knight tanking the tower of fate collapsing,which created tremors that could be felt in the other side of the map.Not to mention his intangibility hax.Scrooge is actually pretty screwed realistically sans some non-standard equipment.
