Meta Knight vs Bowser



Suggested by Sonic It’s time for Meta Knight to return and now he’s up against big bad Bowser. Bowser has a lot of raw strength at his disposal so he won’t go down easy. That being said, Meta Knight’s speed is going to be key here. He can keep taking shots at Bowser while dodging all possible counters. That’s always been a recipe for success in a fight and that will be true in this round as well. There just isn’t much that Bowser can do to stop him here. Meta Knight wins.

  1. It´s just a matter of time that Giga Bowser hits meta Knight and when he does Meta knight would be badly damage and if Giga Bowser hits Meta knight at least one time that should be enough because of two reasons. 1. Meta Knight hasn´t show many durable feats and since Giga Bowser is twice more stronger and durable then Base Bowser just imagine how much damage Giga Bowser would do to meta Knight since we see that Bowser´s attacks are really powerful. When Meta Knight is gets badly damage Giga bowser will finish him off with his hot flame or just stomp him.

    • The key part will be if Bowser can hit Meta Knight and I have my doubts just due to how massive the speed difference is here. Meta Knight’s blows will also deal enough damage where he should be able to finish Bowser off before taking any real hits. It’s what hurts Bowser most of the time. He has a lot of power but not enough speed to really use it

      • Meta knight can´t escape Giga Bowser´s attacks forever and like is said: Its just a matter of time that Gigs Bowser hits meta knight and with one punch or too will be enough to finish him then Giga Bowser will kill him by burning him or stomp him.

      • This plays out sorta like the Charizard match although it is a lot closer to be sure. Meta Knight will take longer to beat Bowser and his durability is also weaker than the Pokemon’s. So it does come really close but I would make the case that Meta Knight would land enough blows to win before he gets hit

  2. Nah, believe me it will take longer than that and I assure you that since Meta knight hasn´t prove any incredible durability feat, he only has prove that he can keep up with Kirby a little bit but still Bowser would finish Meta Knight in just two, three or four punches. Plus Meta knight´s attacks doesn´t make much damage so it will take him some minutes to bring down Bowser by his attacks but it won´t give him time because its just a matter a time that Bowser lands a fatal blow on Meta Knight and that would be the end for him.

    • Yeah Meta Knight doesn’t have a whole lot of durability, but trust me his speed is the real deal. Keep in mind that this guy was actually blocking hits from Marth and zoomed over like a blur bullet. Bowser probably would have a hard time even keeping up with his speed visually. Meta Knight can then keep on poking at Bowser with his sword moves until the guy goes down

      • Like I say its just a matter of time that Bowser leaves a fatal blow on Meta knight and Bowser is much faster on his shell. Believe me that I don´t see Meta knight take Bowser´s attacks for so much longer while Meta knight will take him very much to take Bowser down with his swords attacks since we have seen it doesn´t do much damage like Bowser´s attacks.

      • Well I would say that this is the closest battle for Bowser easily. It is just barely that I believe Meta Knight would be able to outmaneuver him for the win. One wrong step and Bowser would definitely crush him.

  3. Its just like I say, Meta Knight may be able to avoid some attacks with his incredible speed but he won´t be able to continue like that. Bowser will finish him just in 3 or 4 punches and if he does a flying slam or bowser bomb it will be all over for Meta knight.

    • 3-4 hits probably is all it would take to be honest so I agree there. I just don’t see Bowser being able to land those hits. I can’t find a time Bowser has managed to hit anyone who was even remotely fast. I feel like he would be completely out of his league here

      • Trust me, its just a matter of time Bowser hits meta knight, he can´t escape forever and his flying slam and Bowser bomb will finish him off.

      • Bowser Bomb is one of his slower attacks though. His best bet definitely would be the flying slam but Meta Knight flies at incredible speeds so that is why I would still have my doubts

  4. Its just a matter of time that Meta knight gets hit. He can´t escape forever. So trust me that Meta knight wouldn´t be able to do anything here.

    • It is only a matter of time but it’s still too short before Meta Knight lands the deciding blow. Bowser is a very powerful fighter and one of those villains you do not want to mess with but he needs something more to be able to stop Meta Knight

      • Meta knight will land some hits but Meta knight´s hits doesn´t do so much damage so it will take him a long time to bring Bowser down doing those types of attacks because of Bowser´s impressive durability. Bowser will leave Meta Knight so much damage with his fists, drop kick, flying slam, or bowser bomb the Meta knight will be finish in just 4 or maybe 5 hits. And Bowser can burn him too with his hot flames.

      • It does really come down to whether Bowser’s durability can outlast Meta Knight’s speed. That’s just something I’m not too confident about. Bowser just doesn’t strike me as someone who is super durable to the point where he can survive Meta Knight’s onslaught. The guy is very skilled don’t get me wrong, but a match for Meta Knight? I’d have my doubts on that. A few of the shadow strikes will deal massive damage here

  5. You are saying me that Bowser isn´t super durable?
    Durability of Bowser: Resisted being crashed by a train, resisted being stomp by robots and castles, resists lava at any temperature, resisted a supernova, resisted fall to the sun and a star, resisted a black hole, and resisted the Big Bang. Bowser is more durable and can sure take a punishment. The shadow strikes may do some damage to Bowser but Bowser´s attacks will be more deadlier than Meta knight´s. meta knight may dodge some attacks but not all of them, believe me its just a matter of time he gets hit. Bowser´s dropkick, bowser bombs, and flying salms will do a massive damage to Meta Knight and it will surely end him.

    • Yeah I’d say he’s reasonably durable but not enough so where hw would be able to tank a lot of hits from Meta Knight. Trust me, that’s just not something he’ll be prepared to deal with. Meta Knight also deals out massive damage with each attack and that will also quickly unnerve Bowser.

      • Bowser has been able to survive worse things than attacks from someone like Meta Knight so he can sure take a punishment from Meta Knight so he can take the hits for so much longer. Lets not forget he has a super durable shell and he has too a shield in the abdomen that can protect him very much so that makes Bowser super durable. His shell has been able to protect him from May rocks hitting him in the back and it protect him from his castle falling to his back and the shell hasn´t had any scratch and since Meta Knights´ shadow strikes is an attack from the back then the shell of Bowser will protect him from that. Its just a matter of time Meta Knight gets hit, he can´t dodge attacks forever and the hits from Bowser will do massive damage to Meta Knight and he would be finished in 4 or maybe 5 punches and his flying slams, Bowser bombs, and dropkicks will finish Meta Knight. Lets not forget Bowser has to Giga Bowser and Giant Bowser and those from increase Bowser´s durability and strength so Meta Knight´s speed and attacks won´t be very effective and also Bowser can just wish him away with his Dreamy form.

      • Bowser can survive some pretty terrible punishment to be sure, but that’s different from taking direct hits from someone like Meta Knight with intent to destroy. What can Bowser possibly do to survive such an onslaught? He may be the King of the Koopa but he’s not invincible. Meta Knight’s shadow strikes are the best bet so the shell being a good defense is key but Meta Knight can adjust his swing on the fly so he doesn’t bump into the tough exterior. I’m confident that this will do the trick with his counter moves. As for wishing Meta Knight away with his Dreamy form….that’s not really going to do much here

  6. Bowser can still take a punishment from Meta Knight. he could even be able to dodge or block some attacks of Meta Knight since we have seen him dodge some things like in Mario Odyssey he was able to block Mario´s attacks and in Smash Bros Brawl he was able to dodge Pit´s arrows too. So that means that Bowser can dodge or even block some attacks of Meta Knight. Bowser was able to take direct hits too from Mario so he can be able to take Meta Knight´s direct hits too.
    Bowser will be able to hit Meta Knight even when he is flying then Meta Knight will receive so much damage and it will continue like that. Then Bowser´s strongest attack will do the trick here, Meta knight won´t be able to handle Giga Bowser´s and Giant Bowser´s strength and durability and their attacks will leave Meta Knight with so much damage that he will probably won´t be able to keep up. Bowser´s wishes will work on Meta Knight and don´t say it won´t because he has willpower because he doesn´t have a will that can protect him from things that could kill him. He hasn´t show anything of willpower in the Kirby´s games or series. Meta Knight will then fall to the ground.

    • Sure, but Bowser dodging Mario’s attacks doesn’t help much since Mario’s fairly slow. Meta Knight does have an uphill battle here but I’m just not sure about Bowser being able to take him down for the count. What we need is a game where Bowser is able to go all out and demonstrate his speed. A game where he doesn’t have to hold back anymore so we can better gauge him

      • mario isn´t slow he is very fast we have seen him be able to run very fast and in Smash he has some very fast attacks. Bowser was able to escape a black hole 4 times. A black hole is something inevitable that even light can´t escape! So that means Bowser is FTL speed, no way Meta Knight can compete with something like that! Bowser´s attacks will do some great damage to meta Knight and will be able to defeat him very quickly.

      • You’re trying to apply real world physics to a game with toon force. Bowser escaped the black hole as more of a power feat than a speed one. He’s definitely not FTL. I wouldn’t even say Bowser is supersonic speed

      • Any proof that he used brute force? I already said that you need to use speed to escape a black hole, its impossible that someone escapes a black hole with strength even for someone like Bowser who can lift many tons. He should have used speed and we know that is true so Bowser is FTL speed.

      • Yes, my proof is every scene we show has Bowser forcing his way out of the black hole with brute strength. He just reaches out and pulls himself out. So that’s the proof that it has nothing to do with speed

  7. To escape a black hole you need to use speed not brute strength, plus in the guide it doesn´t sya he escaped a black hole by using strength. Bowser is FTL speed, you need to be FTL speed to escape a black hole and Bowser has already done that 4 times!

    • I don’t know about that, looked to me like Bowser was using pure strength to break through that time. Usually it is speed as you mentioned but not quite in this case. This time it was all pure power and brawn

      • Its impossible that someone escapes a black hole with brute strength even for someone like Bowser who can lift many tons. You need to use speed. Bowser definitely escaped a black hole by using speed.

  8. Its still impossible for someone to escape a black hole by using brute strength even someone like Bowser who has super human strength. He has to use speed.

  9. You need to be FTL speed to escape a black hole and you know that. Its impossible for someone to escape a black hole by using strength, you need to use speed. Bowser is FTL speed.

      • Bowser escaped a black hole 4 times! A black hole is something that light can´t escape! So that means Bowser is faster than light.

      • No, it’s not consistent with anything we’ve seen from Bowser so it’s a lot more likely that he used brute force to break free

  10. Like I say ´´Have any proof?´´ It is impossible for someone to escape a black hole with brute force. Speed is the thing you should use to escape a black hole and you know it.

      • When does we see Bowser using brute strength. Even though Bowser is super strong he can´t escape a black hole by using strength he has to use speed.

      • We literally see it in the cutscene as he struggles to grab onto the black hole and then pulls himself out. There is no speed involved there

  11. We never saw Bowser pulling himself out of a black hole. Maybe in inside story he pulled himself out he escapes launching himself out and the black hole couldn´t suck him when he launched himself out so he must have launched himself in a speed faster than light so that could explain everything.

    • We see him break out. If you’re talking about the times he fell into one and then returned in the next game, keep in mind that Bowser knows magic. It would be very easy for him to simply teleport himself back into reality without having to go faster. The whole FTL argument makes no sense because if he could move at that speed then he would have

      • When have we saw Bowser using magic in Inside story to escape a black hole? I mean I know Bowser knows magic but we never saw him using magic to escape a a black hole.

      • Right, but we’ve only seen Bowser escape a black hole one of two ways.

        1. Bowser just crawls out using physical power
        2. Bowser escapes but we never see exactly how

        So I’m saying in the second instance it is more likely that he used magic than that he suddenly moved faster than light. I don’t think we’ll ever know one way or the other but that has a better chance in my view

  12. I already said that in inside story Bowser launched himself with a speed that even the black hole couldn´t suck Bowser so that means that speed that Bowser used to launch himself out of the black hole is FTL.

      • Yes it has to do with speed. If Bowser really isn´t FTL seed then when he launched himself out of the black hole then the black hole would have sucked him but it didn´t. Bowser must have launched himself out in a speed faster than light.

  13. When he launched himself out the black hole couldn´t suck him back so Bowser must have used a launch speed that is FTL speed so that explains everything.

      • A black hole can suck an entire planet that is obviously more heavy than Bowser so it means the black hole can take heavy people like Bowser, but that is not my point. My point is that since he was able to launch himself out of the black hole without he sucked him back then that means he use a speed to launch himself out that is faster than light.

      • I still disagree. From what we’ve seen of Bowser he doesn’t even have supersonic speed. So to jump all the way to saying he was able to move faster than light due to a scene where he gets through a black hole seems like it is not a very likely case. Strength makes a lot more sense

  14. What would strength involve in something that you launch yourself of a black hole in a speed that even a black hole can´t suck? He launched himself out of the black hole in a speed that the black hole couldn´t suck so that means that speed that used Bowser is FTL.

    • No, Bowser’s not even supersonic. At best he’s just using strength to try and resist the black hole’s influence. I wouldn’t call him super slow or anything but…I wouldn’t call Bowser all that fast either

      • He was able to launch himself out of the black hole with a speed that the black hole couldn´t suck him back so that speed that Bowser used to escape was FTL speed. If it really wasn´t FTL speed then the black hole would have sucked him back but it didn´t. You are right he isn´t supersonic speed he is FTL speed!

      • I think you’re focusing too much on real world physics here again. Put it this way, if Bowser was FTL speed why has he never ever used it in an actual combat scenario? Trust me, he would if he could but the guy just doesn’t have that kind of ability. And it’s okay, not every fighter needs to be crazy strong like that

  15. He doesn´t use it while fighting because he isn´t fast in feet like Sonic or Flash or Quicksilver but if he has proved to escape a black hole then that means FTL speed.

  16. He literally launched himself out of the black hole and the black hole didn´t suck him back so that means the speed Bowser used when he launched himself out must be FTL speed.

      • How could power help him launch himself out of a black hole and couldn´t sucked him back? Speed must have do all the job in that part. When he launched himself out the black hole didn´t sucked him back and if Bowser was really not FTL peed then he would have been sucked back but he didn´t so when he launched himself out he must have used a speed that the black hole couldn´t suck him back so that speed he used is faster than light.

      • It’s just enough power and weight where the gravity doesn’t affect him. It’s like if you stand in front of a tornado and don’t get pulled in because you have super durability. That’s all Bowser is using here, sheer defense to keep himself in the game. It’s got nothing to do with speed though because Bowser’s not that fast

  17. A black hole can suck an entire planet that it has more weight than Bowser so the black hole could handle Bowser’s weight and have we seen Bowser using power or defense to get out of the black hole in inside story? The answer is: No, he may have usen strength when he pulled himself out but speed does all the rest of the job. Bowser launched himself out of the black hole and it couldn’t suck him back so he used a launching speed that is way faster than light and its a very good reason. I already gived my conclusion so it is your turn. Bowser is FTL admit it.

    • I have given my reasoning. Bowser has never showed anywhere near that kind of speed before so it’s more likely that he was just able to resist the black hole’s effects with his power and weight. That’s how the King of the Koopas rolls and it worked out well for him here. He’s definitely not FTL though

      • I am going to say this one more time and I hope you understand it: A. Black Hole. Can. Suck. An. Entire. Planet!!!! That is obviously more heavier than Bowser so the black hole could sur handle Bowser’s weight and have we seen Bowser using anything of his power to get out of the black hole? No, we just seen he used strength and then speed. He may have used brute strength when he pulled himself out of the black hole but when he launched himself out speed does the job there. He wasn’t suck back when he launched himslef out so he must have using a launching speed that is FTL. You know that I have a good point and you can’t argue with that.

      • Put it this way, if the Black Hole could suck up a whole planet then why did it not even suck up the block Bowser was on or the city or anything? What you’re telling me then is that this was a far weaker Black Hole than a real one so it wouldn’t be an FTL feat either way if Bowser pushed past it

  18. But if he didn´t appear in the final fight then he didn´t save Bowser and don´t say Rosalina saved him because he only protected Mario and Peach from the black hole but she let Bowser died.

      • Bowser can only teleport by using the grand star and when he got sucked up he didn´t have the Grand star so he must have used speed.

      • I doubt he used speed though. We’ve never seen Bowser be able to move at that speed before so he would have had a really tough time. He can’t even go supersonic. My best guess personally is that he was saved or the black hole was used as a portal

  19. We never saw too he was saved by anyone and the black hole wasn´t a portal it seemed very real so he used speed. Speed is the only way to escape a black hole and in inside story we saw he launched himself out too and if he is really not FTL then he would have been sucked back but he didn´t so he must have used a launching speed that is FTl. If that doesn´t convince you then Bowser was able to keep up with Starship Mario, which crossed entire universes in 10 seconds, which would mean he can cross 9.1 BILLION light-YEARS every second.

    • Speed doesn’t work though because Bowser isn’t that fast. As for the Starship, Bowser kept up with it using magic and sorcery. There was no other way for him to keep up

      • We just literally saw Bowser launching himself out without getting sucked back! He must have used a launching speed that is FTL. And Bowser didn´t use any magic we saw how he was flying and keeping up with Mario´s starship.

      • Oh, for the one Bowser jumped out of he was using strength there. Bowser was able to force himself back out of the black hole which is an impressive feat in its own right, just not a speed one. He was relying purely on power which is something he definitely has quite a lot of

  20. He may have used strength when he pulled himself out but speed does the rest of the job. He used a launching speed that the Black Hole couldn´t suck it so that launching speed is FTL and you know I have a point.

    • Bowser isn’t FTL though so that’s why your point doesn’t land. We know for a fact that Bowser can’t move at speeds anywhere near light based on how Mario’s always kicking him around the block. I wouldn’t even say Supersonic to be honest as he’s more street level. That rules out speed so strength is the only thing he has left

      • Street level? Okay, let me ask you something…Can someone that can be able to take Black holes, lava, supernovas, fall to stars and suns, able to defeat gods, and be able to survive a Big Bang! Could be street level? Bowser is way higher than that he is universal level and with the Dream stone he becomes multiversal! Bowser is FTL he was able o launch himself out of a black hole without getting sucked back so he used a launching speed that is faster than light. Strength just appears when he pulled himself out but when he launched himself out without getting sucked back speed does the rest of the job and Bowser is able to keep up with Mario´s starship that can travel through entire universes in just ten seconds and Dreamy Bowser scales to Antasma, who took on Dreamy Luigi, who jumped to into distant constellations in a timeframe of one second. Assuming it’s the lowest possible distance, the distance of Alpha Centauri, 4.24 light-YEARS away, Dreamy Luigi can travel 4.24 light-years EVERY SECOND! Knuckles can´t hope to compete with something like that! Bowser just outclasses Knuckles in almost every class! He would be finished by Dreamy Bowser´s wishes.

      • I was saying Bowser’s speed is street level, not that his durability was. The rest of his stats are okay but in speed he’s basically just a human so that’s why all of these opponents could just run rings around him and combo the guy for days. The final scaling things are all exaggerated and don’t help at all. You can’t scale characters in that way

  21. Bowser could escape a black hole! That makes him FTL and he is able to keep up with Mario´s starship that can travel through entire universes in just ten seconds! And Dreamy Bowser scales to Antasma, who took on Dreamy Luigi, who jumped to into distant constellations in a timeframe of one second. Assuming it’s the lowest possible distance, the distance of Alpha Centauri, 4.24 light-YEARS away, Dreamy Luigi can travel 4.24 light-years EVERY SECOND! Bowser is more faster than you think he just outclasses Knuckles in almost everything the only advantage that Knuckles has is intelligence but that won´t do much.

    • The Black Hole feat has already been debunked along with Dreamy Luigi. Dreamy Luigi isn’t any faster than his normal form. Knuckles is still far faster and stronger than Antasma which is why I don’t see that guy being able to sneak a win here. The difference in their respective abilities is just too much that’s why Bowser would end up losing here. Knuckles also being smarter than him is really just showing how massive the gap here is. Anything Bowser can do, Knuckles can counter

      • I am already getting tired of you and your excuses. The Black hole proves everything that Bowser isn´t as slow as you think if he was able to escape a black hole that males him FTL and in the Dream Team guide it says that Dreamy Bowser scales to Antasma, who took on Dreamy Luigi, who jumped to into distant constellations in a timeframe of one second. Assuming it’s the lowest possible distance, the distance of Alpha Centauri, 4.24 light-YEARS away, Dreamy Luigi can travel 4.24 light-years EVERY SECOND! And Bowser is able to keep up to Mario´s starship that can travel through entire universes in just ten seconds. Bowser is way faster than Knuckles. Knuckles may be smarter but that is the only advantage that Knuckles has while Bowser is better than him in almost every class. Knuckles can´t counter that Bowser throws at him he can´t do anything against his superior strength, durability, versatility, speed, experience, arsenal, and better forms. Knuckles is out of hope.

      • You’re still overrating these guys. Look, Bowser is strong but the Black Hole thing was pure power and not a speed feat. Bowser’s still fairly slow compared to someone like Knuckles. Knuckles has the massive speed advantage here as well as multiple super forms so Bowser would never even be hitting him like that
