SpikeTV Deadliest Warrior
Yakuza vs Mafia.
And here I thought they were the same.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but is the Yakuza basically the Japanese Mafia?
And is the Yakuza vs. the Italian Mafia? Russian Mafia?
So it's Russian Mafia that has years of doing business in just about anything the Chinese Triads did as crime categories (human trafficking, slavery, extortion, drugs, etc.) go or the Armenians that are the above (or worse), or the Italian mobsters that terrorize Sicily
The mafia of a small island that makes its business through pachinko and hostess bars...
Seriously, watching a documentary about Yakuza makes me all the more pity the idea of them having to go against any hard edged group of Western mafioso...
Deadliest Warrior is a retarded bastard excuse of a television show.
Reflecting the subject matter of this thread quite accurately, infact.
According to the Simpsons, the Yakuza kill you 12 times before you hit the ground (or something like that).
Yakuza have ninjas.
Mafia has fat men with pump-action shotguns.
Yakuza have fucking katanas and niggas like Kakihara on their payroll Mafia's are dumb fat faggots who come from behind and strangle you with piano wire.
The russian mafia pretty much control russia so they win easily.
The italian mafia have Vito Corleone so they win easily.
Kakihara can rule the world
Bull, just like Ninja vs Spartan
Yakuza should have won
And didn't used the Katana either D:<
Once again the simulation fail D:<
The dude was probably right.
Some body did pay the Mafia to win lol
If we're really sticking to fiction, Hanayama makes Kakihara his bitch.
Italian mafia in their prime easily. Lucky Luciano's time. They were even asked by the fucking American government to guard the New york shores from an Italy invasion in WW 2.
Mafia in its prime had so much power, they would stomp the Yakuza.
The Mafia won because they brought the tommy gun to the fight. The Thompson's Sub-Machine gun fires 1,000 rounds per minute guys. During the demonstration, the guy with the tommy gun killed 7 lifelike dummies spread out over a 15 feet area from 30 or 40 feet back in under 4 seconds.
During the St. Valentine's Day massacre, 2 of the 7 victims where nearly sawed in half by bullets.
It is kind of odd that the katana was not brought up but nunchuku was.....
Although it doesnt matter because mafia were more powerful in every way (more men, more/better guns, more influence)
Fiction ok Tsuna X-burners all of them
Is there any fictitious yakuza that can top KHR?
Maybe Yakuza Girl manga
The Yamaguchi-Gumi, the biggest Yakuza gang (36,000 members- by contrast, the NY 5 Families have about 1,200, inc. associates, all in), are the wealthiest criminal organization on the planet.
The monoplolise the market in crystal meth., are senoir partners of various Triads, bully major corporations into paying protection money, and are faster than the government. in responding to natural disasters.
Why the hell do you disapprove. The mafia topped them in any category you care to name.
Mafia has more guns
"Everybody wants to be the mafia."
I agreed with that quote in the show lol.
Slow icepick stab muthafucka!
Next thing people will say Yakuza instead of Gangster
Seriously using a term like that instead of cool is weird since not everyone share that point of view and it span so many people it's bound to be unworthy of being compared to a word like that.(Cool, lame you name it they won't be able to span that many)
Separate names with a comma.
