Suggested by Sonic This is a pretty close battle. Both of these guys have shown pretty high levels of ability in the past to be sure. They both have long range options but prefer to fight up close. Tempest has more actual abilities up his sleeve while Gajeel’s have been trained more. Mainly what currently gives Gajeel the advantage in this fight is his Shadow Dragon mode as well as Dragon Force. They greatly amp up his abilities so he will be fast enough to get in close and destroy Tempest in a hand to hand battle. Gajeel wins.
Update 9/27/2022 Rimuru’s stats exceed that of Gajeel’s now. He won’t be able to keep up with this slime. Rimuru Tempest wins.
