Unsure of a good way to make your fight more interesting than just "X Character vs. Y Character"? Check out our Official Submission Template for a few suggestions on how you can structure your battle with additional conditions and formatting to make it more interesting.



Rules - Wiki

  1. Be nice. Do not insult others, use derogatory terms, or resort to ad hominem arguments.
  2. Do not downvote. As this is a debate forum, we ask that you join the conversation, and not attempt to bury a point you don't like. If a post breaks the rules, please report it.
  3. Repost with moderation. We will remove posts that are duplicated in quick succession. We do not allow very similar posts on the same day, or an individual posting very similar posts every couple of days repeatedly. However, revisiting topics every once in a while is allowed.
  4. Do not make new posts more than 5 times a day.
  5. When making a claim about a character, be able to provide the source of that claim. A source can include the work of media that claim comes from, and the chapter, page, scene, ETC where it occurred. Refusal to provide details is considered posting in bad faith and can result in a warning or temporary ban.
  6. Do not post meta-topics without mod approval, except on "Meta Monday" when we open posts to general meta conversation. Meta-topics include conversation topics, tournaments, events, or other non-conventional posts. This rule will only be enforced Tuesday through Sunday.
  7. Do not use disruptive or gimmick accounts. Accounts posting with a gimmick or agenda in mind will be banned.
  8. Posts may not be overly broad. A post must identify at least one specific combatant and must include all combatants in the title. A post may not include "...in all of fiction" or "...in all of history."
  9. Posts must include sufficient details about the characters, the situation and the win conditions. Posts with low effort descriptions will be removed.
  10. Do not use disallowed combatants and modifiers. Topics not allowed in posts include "you vs...", "your favorite character vs...", "a specific subreddit or online community vs..." or "character with a [color] lantern ring vs..."
  11. Posts and comments may not be deliberately distasteful, edgy, intended to bait drama, directly insulting, or clearly written to evoke shock value.
  12. Posts and comments may not push a specific political agenda. Posts involving any real-life political figure will be removed.
  13. Posts and comments may not simply be jokes, memes, circlejerk or copy-pasta topics. Posts that are funny are allowed, so long as they are also a topic that can effectively be discussed.
  14. Posts and comments that target a group of people (including but not limited to race, sex, gender identity, religion, political affiliation) are considered abuse and will be removed and the poster may be banned.
  15. Comments must add to the conversation. Short comments like "Goku stomps," or a single image as a non-responsive reply will be removed.

Additional Guidelines:

  1. Include detail when posting. Try outlining arenas, special conditions, multiple rounds and specifying the universe/version of characters if you're looking for a good discussion. Again, please see the suggested template above for more details.

  2. Admit when you don't know. No one expects you to be a genius when it comes to every aspect of every character. Always admit it up front if you're unfamiliar with a character.

The penalty for breaking the rules of this sub, contributing to spam, trolling, or purposefully making things more difficult for the mods may include being banned. We issue warnings if we believe the user means well but we are not obligated to do so. You can be banned for a first offense. Report rule breaking and leave rule enforcement to the mods

Remember, the mods are humans, and we realize you're human, too. Be nice and we'll respond in kind. Apologies go a long way if you mess up.

How far can a composite Omni-Man and Invincible make it in the DBZ verse?

They would both start off at the beginning of DB fighting all the main foes, all the way up to the saiyan saga, Radditz, Vegeta and Nappa, Frieza saga, Cell saga and so forth up to Super if they make it that far

Let’s say Goku didn’t exist and it was them two instead.

They have both their feats from the Show and Comics so spoilers maybe

No handicaps just their full strength

The 3 arachnids have about 10 minutes to devise a plan before the Seven take the elevator to the room completely unaware of the attack.

Can Goku bring the Orks from 40k to extinction?

Goku’s goal is to completely purge the universe of Orks. In theory, this should be very easy for Goku. Unfortunately, Orks reproduce by spreading their spores like a mushroom, making them a challenge to wipe out. Goku only wins if there are none left. The Orks are as powerful as usual and Goku is at his current power in the manga and can’t use Dragon Balls or the Zeno button

Round one: All the Orks are on a random planet

Round two: The Orks have spread across the universe

Round three: The Orks have spread across the universe and they’re on earth. Goku likes earth and doesn’t want to destroy it

Kendrick Lamar drops a “Meet the Grahams” style diss track against The Seven (The Boys), how does Vought respond?

For clarification purposes, I’m talking about the show as of season 4, meaning Kendrick is dissing Homelander, A-Train, The Deep, Black Noir (or who everyone thinks is Noir), Firecracker, and Sister Sage.

Also, let’s assume that Kendrick had a mole at Vought providing him material for him to expose (similar to how he claimed OVO had a mole while dissing Drake). How would the Seven- as well as Vought as a company- respond to the verbal attack?

Adrian monk vs shawn spencer vs patrick jane, who would win ?

Like lets say they were all given complete access ( warrants ) , and equal opportunity - who do u think would be able to solve more cases, faster ?

I mean in reading people the order goes like this Jane > shawn > monk

In crime scene observation I'd put it like this Monk > shawn > jane

This is just my opinion. I'm still not sure who'd be able to solve more cases.

DIO Brando (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure) Vs Freddy Krueger (a Nightmare On Elm Street)

The battle takes place in DIO's mansion.

DIO is taken from Stardust Crusaders.

Freddy is from a Nightmare On Elm Street 1-6. The fight takes place in the dream world.

Random Encounter.

Bonus Round: Jason Voorhees (Undead) and Michael Myers (2018) joins Freddy.

Personal thoughts: DIO wins, someone might argue that Freddy should win because he have controll over the dream world and DIO can't stop time, but it doesn't really matter because he have much better stats than Freddy, and Freddy have a history of being beaten up in the dream world (Looking at you Jason, Alice and Karate Kid i can't remember the name from A Nightmare On Elm Street Part 4), plus, DIO have Manish Boy and Death 13 as a killer for him, who have the exact same abilities as Freddy, so he would at least some familiarity with Freddy's abilities.

After defeating darkseid, The Justice League decides to celebrate by playing Among Us. Who wins the most?

The roster includes Batman, Superman, The Flash (Barry Allen), Green Lantern (Hal Jordan), Wonder Woman, Martian Man hunter, and Aquaman.

7 rounds with 2 imposters each round are played giving each legionnaire 2 chances to play the imposter. This is due to luck and not a pre planned schedule (I.E. no process of elimination to guess who it is)

The game is hosted ovrer discord with each legionnaire playing from home.

All legionnaires have agreed to not cheat (hacking, mind reading, peaking with super speed, listening in with super hearing, etc.), however none are willing to throw the game and will try their best to win with the deductive and persuasive skills at their disposal.

Who on the team would win the most times by the time they're finished. A "win" is counted as if the player on the winning team (imposters or crew mates) survives to the end. Your score doesn't go up if you die on the way.

Who do you SUSpect is most likely to win?

The Alien Klowns(Killer Klowns from Outer Space) invade Tokyo in Tokyo Revengers(anime/manga).

Say like this the main characters in the Killer Klowns movie are replaced by those from Tokyo Revengers and the Klowns land in the city where Tokyo Revengers takes place. Also they either invade in the beginning Takamachi time travel adventure or in the other story lines. Neither side has any knowledge of the other.

Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes vs the Wonka Candy Company

Both take new ventures and somehow open up next to each other in London. Each store is the size of a standard 7-11. Assume all people, muggles or not are aware of and can choose to buy from either store.

All Burrow Weasleys as before the Battle of Hogwarts are available and Wonka gets Charlie, Grandpa Joe and 6 Oompa Loompas.

Round 1: Pure commercial battle. Who gets more customers, specifically from the new store?

Round 2: They try to sabotage each other but only through pranks.

Edit: Changed from profit to number of customers as HP wizard money is weird
