This is a tribute to Kong: Skull Island. While his low durability for a big Kaiju was exposed, King Kong’s ingenuity and hand to hand skills helped him claim the win. He was able to think about how to win and did a good job of using the elements around him. I can’t say that Nemo is quite as versatile. He can try to swim away but it will be futile. King Kong wins.
This is a tribute to one of the first King Kong remakes. Needless to say, I’m still not a big fan of the character. Apes never made for good antagonists and King Kong’s so huge that he didn’t really get to fight this time. Size has never been the most important quality in a fight as that honor goes to speed. Well, Kirito has that attribute in spades and a few quick slices will finish this monkey off. There’s just no way for King Kong to defend himself. Kirito wins.
This is a tribute to the Maximum Ride movie. Max is supposed to be a fearless heroine who takes on all challengers, but the movie made her look criminally bad. She was overpowered by every single opponent and her bravado came across as empty. Dorothy never had that problem as she was feared across the land. If anyone got in her way…they wouldn’t be there for long. Dorothy is really everything that Maximum wanted to be. Dorothy wins.
This is a tribute to Rogue One. Jyn Erso kept her composure during Rogue One and while she was roped along in the end, she put up a lot of resistance the whole way. She took down a lot of troopers along the way and never lost her spark. Nemo is a cool little fish in his own right, but he definitely does panic quite a lot. He doesn’t have the same fortitude that she possesses and that will come back to haunt him. A quick blaster shot should do the trick. Jyn Erso wins.
This is a tribute to the Spirit. Spirit is a really tough Stallion who never backs down without a fight. He has a lot of courage and has developed a lot of muscle over the years. I had a feeling he would be a good character before I saw the film, but I was still surprised at just how good. It’s hard to see Nemo doing much here since one stomp would end it all. Nemo’s got heart, but it’ll take a lot more than that to win this round. Spirit wins.
This is a tribute to Son of Frankenstein. Frankenstein just can’t catch a break can he? Now the monster is up against the black swordsman of doom. Kirito has slain many monsters over the years and a lot of them were stronger than this guy. His superior speed and sword techniques will be sure to power him to victory. If Frankenstein is lucky he can at least lose quick enough to watch his loss during an instant replay later. No worries guys, Frankenstein will get a little break to rest and recharge after this round. Kirito wins.
This is a tribute to Yugioh: The Dark Dimensions. Frankenstein is back, but he won’t be able to take on Yugi in a fair fight. Yugi has a lot of monsters and one of those just happens to be Exodia. Exodia obliterates and Frankenstein will learn that first hand by the time this round is over. He has no way to dodge any of the attacks and he certainly cannot hope to endure them. There is no possible path to victory that I can see at the moment. Yugi wins.
This is a tribute to Bride of Frankenstein. Frankenstein has never been my favorite monster and no film has really been able to really change my view on that. He is just not an interesting villain. Moreover, he doesn’t have the speed or power to deal with someone like Kaiba. Kaiba has a whole army of monsters at his beck and call and they will completely shut down any attack that Frankenstein attempts. He is simply outmatched here. At most, he can surrender and hope for the best. Kaiba wins.
Suggested by Anonymous This also serves as a tribute to Lego Justice League Cosmic Clash. Batman stole the show once again with all of his witty one liners and the rest of the cast simply couldn’t keep up with him. Batman saved the day over and over again as many times as was necessary. I don’t think Larry would have lasted long in the same situation and he simply doesn’t have Batman’s experience or hand to hand combat. Batman would take him out as easily as he takes out the average thug, maybe even easier. Batman wins.
This is a tribute to One Piece Film: Gold. Luffy may not have looked all that tough this time around, but he scored the win when it counted and was as determined as ever. Zanya could use some of that determination as he’s all but quit Buddyfight lately. He really needs to put in the work if he wants to continue to get stronger as a duelist and he’ll need to get much stronger to take Luffy down. Right now, Zanya would lose almost as soon as the match has begun and none of his cards are strong enough to take this rubber man down. Luffy wins.
