Hello everybody! Superstar here! Now, I know you guys are waiting for me to update the story and not being able to post a chapter before the summer season has ended, but there is a good reason why. I got this new job. Yeah, my days in Medtronic and at the ASU lunchroom are over, so I'm working at a Café now, so I'll some difficulties with my project, also I'll be scheduled from either Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. And also I haven't been on my very best work for the 5th Season of Death Battle, along with my other "projects". And as for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate story, well... I'm gonna push that idea aside and started working on something different and new. However, as I got started, I begin to get a little distracted on certain reviews based on a show that involves "hores". And then, there are the video games I have been watching on Youtube like Kingdom Hearts 3, Resident Evil 2 REmake, Persona 5, Devil May Cry 5, Pokemon Let's go Pikachu/Eevee, MegaMan 11 and many more. I've been busy watching them I kinda went sidetracked. In fact, I got a little sidetracked, I almost got writer's block. Keyword "Almost". And I know that 2020 is approaching this way very soon, but I'm not gonna be left behind with everything that's been happening to me in writing and typing (mostly because half of the DB fanfic writers were left behind).
Anyways, I apologized for not uploading anything for the last months, I have to work on somethings. Don't worry, I'll be back. I promise.
Until then, thank you for understanding.
(P.S.: Once again, sorry for the huge delay, still working on one of my projects, along with surviving the Coronavirus Pandemic so yeah, I'll be working less and less.)
(P.S.S.: To those who aren't fanfic writers, F**K OFF and Piss off! You guys are not helping me work. Seriously, you guys are acting like a couple of s**theads. If you guys are gonna be complete dicks about this, then I'll have no choice but to delete my own Fanfiction account. So shut the F**K up! *Sigh*)

Episode 88 - Black Panther VS Batman
It has been a very long day for our Smash Fighters. After the huge adventure, they had with fighting against their clone fighters, along with battling the entities of Light and Darkness, Galeem and Dharkon, they begin to help the citizens with cleaning up the places after the aftermath of the World of Light event. However, even though it's a big place, the world of Smash is very wide and it'll take like a whole dozen people to help clean up. Then again, with the Smash World now evolved even bigger due to both entities being defeated and the spirits now freed, it is only a matter of time before the new Smash Bros. Tournament starts. But for now, let's see how our favorite group of fighters is doing.
"Uh, dude, you sure this is the right box?"
"Of course! I'm positive this is the right box!"
"I don't know about it, Kirby. What if it's not the box we're looking for?"
"Oh come on, what if it's not? Besides, we've already seen 4 seasons of the show, so why not?"
"Well, you may have a point."
Inside the theater room of the new/retro castle, we found Kirby, Pikachu, Ness, Lucas, Yoshi, and Toon Link looking at what seems to be another that is similar to the other "boxes". If you're wondering what's going on, here's a small and understanding story. The Smash Fighters decided to move from the Smash Mansion to the Smashers' old castle, where both fighters of 64 and Melee once resided until Brawl came to play. However, with a large number of fighters joining the Smash Community, they think the mansion isn't big enough for everyone, along with some shenanigans that have been happening to go on there, so they decide to move back to the old castle. However, due to some upgrade, the castle has been remodeled and remade to make look new and to make the story short, they got their new home.
Afterward, Kirby and his friends, as they exploded the new and improved castle until they made it into the castle's new theater room and come across a big box that mysteriously appear in the room. They were surprised that something like that would just appear out of nowhere. Curious, Kirby begins to inspect the box until he eventually opens it, shockingly seeing that they are DVDs of the one show we watched: Death Battle.
"Holy crap! Are those what I think it is?" Asked a surprised Pikachu.
"Yeah, they are!" Ness answered astonishingly, "These are the DVD set of Season 5 Death Battle!"
"Yeah! And not only that, there's even a set for Death Battle Season 6!" Yoshi said, surprisingly.
"Whoa, two new seasons in one box," Pikachu said, stunned. "How fitting."
Lucas then took noticed something taped on it. "Hm? What's this?" He said as he pulled it off the box.
"What is it?" TL asked.
"It's a note." He answered.
"What's it say?" Kirby said, eagerly.
The Blonde-Haired Esper then starts reading the note out loud to his friend.
To The Fighters of the Smash World,
If you're reading this, that means that you have made it past 4 seasons of the show Death Battle. Firstly, I want to congratulate each and every one of you for making to pass to each season without fail, not many have made it this far either they're done with it, only got a few episodes behind, or just forget about it. And secondly, as a reward, I've sent these DVDs to you so you or anyone who is interested could glimpse into the new world. For that, here are the new episodes of the show from another world that everyone enjoys: Death Battle. Now prepare yourself, everyone, because for this season, you'll be seeing new fighters that you may or may not cause of the other world customs that everyone brought from the "other" side of the world, so sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
Now both of the young Smashers stared at the letter that is in Lucas's hands before giving each other a look of confusion. After a few more seconds of silence, Pikachu decides to break that silence by speaking to his friends.
"So... what do we do guys?" Asked the Yellow Electric Mouse Pokemon.
(5 Minutes Later...)
"Okay, I'll bite, why are here again?"
"How should I know? It was your little friends' idea to come here!"
"Well, at least we get ourselves with the amount of hard work with all the clean throughout the city and the castle."
"It couldn't be worst than finding and catching all the missing Spirits that Galeem and Dharkon left behind."
"I hope not. Because I'm sore with the whole every Spirit beating the crap out of you."
Inside the theater, some familiar faces have appeared in the room sitting to their respected seats; currently we have the Goddesses of Light and Nature, Palutena and Viridi, their captains-Pit and his mirror counterpart, Dark Pit, Virid's top commander, Phosphora, the Young Hero of Time, Young Link, the Tiny Mouse Pokemon, Pichu, the Speedy Blue Hedgehog, Sonic, the Icy Duo, Popo and Nana (AKA the Ice Climber), the Ghost Muncher, Pac-man, The Female Balloon Pokemon, Jigglypuff, the Blue Bomber, Mega Man, and finally the Son of the Great Koopa King, Bowser Jr.
With everyone accounted for, Ness, Kirby, Pikachu, Lucas, Yoshi, and Toon Link appeared by the lower level of the theater that is behind the curtain covered screen. They appeared to be getting ready to say something to them.
"Hey there, I bet you wonder why you're all here today," Ness said, taking in the speaking role.
"Not really, we thought it was some kind of game," Pit responded.
"Nope," Pikachu replied. "It's better than that. It's a little something that you guys might familiar with."
"Is it another Red vs. Blue episode run?" Asked Popo.
"No idiot, that's for another time." Pikachu retorted. "But close though. It's a familiar show that asked and answers the most important question ever asked…"
"And that would be...?" Viridi asked while raising a brow.
Right on cue, The Yellow Mouse gave out a smirk and said, "Who would win in a fight!"
And that's where Pit's and BJ's (Bowser Jr's) eyes were widened like dinner plates as they had those words before from a familiar show that said that line.
"No way...!" Pit said, surprisingly.
"You mean...!" BJ said, looking quite as a shock as him.
"Yeah! We're gonna watch the new seasons of Death Battle." Kirby said, happily.
"For real?! Already?!" Pit said, surprisingly.
"Well, it's about it!" Sonic said, smirking.
"Yep, we got them!" Replied the Yellow Mouse.
"Really? That didn't take that long." Viridi said, simply.
"Let me guess, Pinkie Pie and Deadpool?" Asked the Young Koopa Prince.
"Oh hell no! It's someone different! We don't know who, but whoever it seems to be an expert on the show!" Kirby explained.
"A bit strange, but sure that seems good." Said Sonic.
"Well, what are we waiting for? Let's get to watch!" YL said.
And with that, everyone goes to their respected seats and Kirby sets up a disc to the DVD Player to the other room and hit play.
(Cues: Wiz & Boomstick - Brandon Yates)
"Huh. I'm starting to like this new intro music, it's a lot better than the old one." Pikachu said while hearing the new intro song.
Wiz: Predators, these fearsome beasts strike fear into the hearts of many.
Boomstick: Well, sometimes, they strike in awe, but yeah, mostly fear.
"Well he's not wrong on that one," Viridi said, recalling the tales of warriors of the night and darkness striking fear to their enemies.
Wiz: And these two superheroes embody the fear of specific predators to an extreme.
Boomstick: Batman, the genius crime fighter from DC Comics.
Wiz: And Black Panther, Marvel's royal warrior scientist.
"Huh!? Batman!?" Pit said, shockingly after seeing the return of the Gotham Knight.
"Yes, it looks like he has returned to Death Battle once again!" Palutena said, surprisingly.
"Indeed," Palutena said, smiling to see the Cape Crusader returned to the show for the third time.
"And it looks like he'll be facing off against T'Challa, the King of Wakanda," Kirby said, recognizing the second combatant.
"AKA the Black Panther," Pikachu added.
"Huh. This is new." Viridi said, intrigued. "Marvel Hero with royalty under his belt. How clever."
"I'll say." Pit commented. "He looks cool for a king in a Black Panther Suit."
"It's too bad Marth couldn't show up to see this!" Pichu said.
Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.
Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills, to find out who would win... a Death Battle.
Wiz: Before he was the Black Panther before he was a king, T'Challa was born the prince of Wakanda.
Boomstick: Waka-where now?
Wiz: Wakanda is an isolated fictional nation hidden somewhere in Africa, but while Wakanda itself is shrouded in secrecy, T'Challa was anything but isolated.
"Ah. I see. It's a hidden kingdom that's been isolated in a scared land." Lady Palutena said, intrigued by this.
"Yes, apparently T'Challa and his people have lived under the city for decades, and not once they show any interest of showing their modern life to the outside world," Ness explained.
"Yeah, except they have some buildings that are Wakanda territory though it's needless to say if it's officially there or not." Toon Link replied.
Boomstick: He's been pretty much everywhere, but especially anywhere with a good university.
"I'm guessing he's a scholar!" Viridi said, impressed by the prince of Wakanda.
"Pretty much," Pikachu responded.
Full Name: T'Challa
Height: 6' | 182.8 cm
Weight: 200 lbs | 90.7 kg
Net Worth: $90.7 trillion (This surprises mostly half of the Smashers for that much money.)
King of Wakanda
Married to Storm
Has several doctorates (The Smashers are impressed by this.)
Wiz: After earning numerous degrees from Harvard, Oxford, Berkeley, and MIT, T'Challa came home.
"Sheesh. What a nerd." Dark Pit said, jokingly.
"Hey!" Pit retorted while glaring at his counterpart after hearing that statement.
Wiz: His father, Wakanda's king, and then-current Black Panther had been assassinated, and a new ruler needed to be named.
"Aww." Was Jigglypuff's response to hearing that sadly.
"I see. So if a king dies, another one must take up the torch and become the new ruler of his or her kingdom." Palutena said, beginning to understand the Wakandan culture.
"True, but there's one more thing that'll get T'Challa becoming the new king," Ness said, but before he could explain more Boomstick and Wiz joins and take over.
Boomstick: But, to claim the throne, he'd have to claw his way through the rite of passage.
Wiz: This would be a test of fortitude, designed to stress T'Challa's bravery, fearlessness, and combat prowess.
"In other words, be an unbeatable king of Panthers." Said Pikachu.
"Well, considering that he fought against bad guys inside and outside of his home country, then yeah we can already know that he's particularly number one for the Overpower Marvel Heroes," Ness said, recalling the time of reading comic books on Black Panther.
"Perhaps, but giving his history, yeah you're not wrong on that." Toon Link replied.
Boomstick: Also known as "beating the crap out of six super deadly fighters"! But hey, T'Challa wasn't just a nerdy brainiac. He could fight, too, and he passed with flying colors.
Wiz: Earning the throne, and the blessings of Wakanda's guardian deity, Bast, the Panther God.
They then see Black Panther confronted the Panther God, Bast. "Hey! That's the same Panther God that was in Dr. Doom's Death Battle!" Kirby said, after recognizing a panther-like deity.
"Well, that's surprising." Pit said in response to that.
Boomstick: But he had to nab some superpowers first, so he went through the ritual of the heart-shaped herb.
They then see heart-shaped herbs that are surrounded within the sacred roots and plants of Wakanda.
"I'm gonna take a wild guess that these herbs have a sacred connection to T'Challa and his people," Viridi spoke, taking a guess while eyeing on the heart-shaped herbs.
"Well, unless you're in the same royal family as T'Challa and his father, then yeah you can say that," Ness answered.
Wiz: This herb connected T'Challa to the Panther God, and that link bestowed him numerous superhuman abilities.
"Well, that explains his record of being unbeatable." Said Angel of Light.
"Who would have thought that having an herb like that can give you superpowers," Pac-man said while scratching the top of his head.
Boomstick: Who knew getting high could turn you into a superhero?
Everyone chuckled at Boomstick's statement.
Exceptional detective skills
Studied 160+ martial arts
WIz: T'Challa's new powers included superhuman speed, strength, healing, and agility. His senses also dramatically increased in acuity. Not only can he see in the dark, but his superior vision can even make out infrared and ultraviolet light.
Boomstick (and Pit): So, like, the powers of a cat?
Wiz (and Viridi): Yes and no. While cats do have exceptional eyesight, they cannot see infrared or UV light. Though it is a common misconception that they can.
"True, but can they see in the dark though?" Asked Pit.
"They technically can," Viridi answered. "I mean, Ultraviolet or black light is completely invisible to humans, so if a room was lit entirely by UV, it would be completely difficult for us to see in the dark. But if you're a cat, dog, or even a monkey, then you're fine."
"Does that include infrared lighten too?" Kirby asked.
"I don't think so, but I might be wrong." She shrugs.
Boomstick: Well, just like a cat, he can always land on his feet, thanks to his other super senses.
Wiz: Specifically, his vastly improved kinesthetic sense.
"Uh, kinesthe-what now?" Pit said, confused by that word.
"It means someone letting the body to do the work without fail." Dark Pit said, bluntly.
"That's one way of putting it," Sonic said, having a sweatdrop made from the back of his head.
Boomstick: Which is, uh... definitely a sense for something.
Wiz: Kinesthetic senses make up a person's awareness of their own movement, like muscle memory, but in a broader scope.
"Oh, I see." Pit replied, understanding it now.
"That sounds like how Lucario does when does training." Pichu pointed out.
"Or how Sonic does when he starts running backwards when he taunts at his enemies," Pikachu said, smirking proudly.
"I... can't be mad at that because that's basically true." Said the Blue Hedgehog, admittedly.
Boomstick: Oh, like how we can walk up steps without looking at 'em!
Boomstick: Or when I shoot my shotgun with my eyes closed!
Wiz: No, no…
"Oh god, no!" Ness exclaimed.
"Yeah, trust me Boomstick, having a gunshot while having your eyes closed is a good idea but at the same time, it doesn't." Pit said, speaking with experience.
Boomstick: So, Black Panther's super sense lets him move and act without having to think about it too much. He can jump across tree branches and ledges without even looking. Hey Wiz, how do I become King of Wakanda? Those powers sound cool as hell.
"Yeah, good luck with that," Ness said, sounding like he doesn't like the idea.
Wiz: I don't know, Boomstick, everyone knows you're terrible at keeping secrets, and Wakanda houses one of the biggest secrets in comic book history.
"Which is?" Nana asked in wonder.
Boomstick: You talking about how Black Panther married Storm from the X-Men?
Wiz: I'm talking about Wakanda's enormous reserves of Vibranium.
This got Junior's fullest attention. "Vibranium, you say!" He quickly said.
Boomstick: Oh yeah, that's the stuff Captain America's indestructible shield is made of.
"Hey, isn't that the super metal that made Captain Roger's Shield?!" Pit said, remembering the said metal from Captain America's Death Battle episode.
"The very same," Ness answered.
"So the people of the Wakanda found the very exact space metal that they found for themselves," Viridi said, perplexedly.
"Well that, and some of those people who weren't Wakandans made Captain America's Shield," Palutena answered.
"That too," Yoshi replied.
Wiz: That's right, ten thousand years ago, a large meteorite of Vibranium crashed in Wakanda.
Boomstick: And they hoarded it all to themselves, and I don't blame 'em!
"Me either." Junior said, "But if I were them, I wanted to have the Vibramium for myself."
"Why? So you can make weapons for yourself?" Pikachu said while raising a brow.
Junior made a small sweatdrop by the side of his face. "Maybe..."
"Just makes sure "Daddy" doesn't know that!" Popo said, teasingly at Junior who shivered at the thought of his father finding out about that.
Wiz: Vibranium is an extremely durable metal which can absorb audio and kinetic energy, a single gram sells for ten thousand US dollars, and Wakanda's Vibranium mound is estimated to be ten thousand tons, that's over $9 billion.
"Holy cow! That's rich!" Pit said, shocked by this.
"Super rich to be exact!" Pac-man uttered.
"Hm, so they horde the metal and made a killing on selling it for money." Said the intrigued Goddess of Nature. "Huh. I'm sensing there is a great expectation with these humans."
"Hmph. With that much money, they probably make their economy change and now they change from a small village into a badass future city." Dark Pit said, pointing it out.
"Yeah, they pretty much did all that along with the technology they used to remake their home in a modern age, but sure let's go with that," Ness said, shrugging it.
Boomstick: They're rich, super-rich, with all that wealth, Wakanda became a techno marvel decades ahead of the rest of the world. They were exploring outer space years before the U.S. and Russia even tried!
Wiz: So, why is this important? Well, as king of Wakanda, T'Challa has unlimited access to all of his country's resources.
"Well, ain't that a surprise," Pikachu said, sarcastically while rolling his eyes.
"Well, he is technically king so there's that." Mega Man responded.
Boomstick: That suit of his doesn't just look cool, it's made of Vibranium.
Can hold a static charge
Energy palm blasts
Wiz: The Panther habit is coated in a Vibranium-microwave mesh, this doesn't just block incoming attacks, it can literally rob them of their momentum. For example, bullets don't bounce off, they stop dead and fall straight down, their kinetic energy absorbed into the suit.
Boomstick: Even the shells from a helicopter-mounted minigun can't even faze him.
"Boy, that Panther Suit sounds invincible, where can I get a suit like that?" Pit said with glee.
"In Wakanda, with the Vibramium," Palutena said with a straight-forward response. Then she smirks at her Angel Captain. "Though I doubt the king wouldn't like it if you touch one of his stuff."
This made Pit jolted in fear at the thought of T'Challa seeing him and the thought of him ripping his wings off if that were to happen. "On second thought, I'm good." He said, shivering in fear.
The Kid Icarus girls giggled at Pit's reaction, heck even Dark Pit is joining in on chuckle train because of this. "Pussy." He muttered.
"Shut up." Pit retorted.
Wiz: He carries energy daggers, a shield of hardened light, a teleportation device, and claws.
Boomstick: Which are made of a special Antarctic version of Vibranium called Anti-Metal. Guess why it called that! Because it can melt other metals. What CAN'T this suit do?!
"Just like Misty Knight's Metal Arm," Kirby said, remembering the said Marvel Hero from Raiden and Wolverine's Death Battle.
"Yeah, except for the arm being replaced with claws," Pikachu added.
Wiz: Well, the Vibranium weave DOES has a limit to how much energy it can absorb all at once. If it takes in too much, it could wind up expelling said energy in a... well, destructive fashion.
Everyone cringed at this scene we see a large explosion and T'Challa survived with his almost destroyed Panther Suit still intact.
"Whoa..." Pac-man and Pit said, stunned by this.
"Jesus..." Ness mumbled.
"Wow, even the suit had its limits." Mega Man said, astonished by this scene.
Boomstick: Oh God! Ah, but don't worry, he's fine! Somehow...
"Keyword being "Somehow"," Viridi grunted.
Wiz: Under T'Challa's leadership, Wakanda has warded off many would-be invaders. Even with Doctor Doom, Namor and Ulysses Klaw charging in, Wakanda was never truly conquered.
Boomstick: They even stopped an alien invasion, and hey, nobody's ever ready for one of those.
"Uh-huh. Now there's a nation that can take care of themselves." Dark Pit said, looking very proud at the Black Panther and his Wakandian Army.
Wiz: In addition, T'Challa has studied EVERY major martial art, of which there are about 160. He's considered one of the finest hand to hand fighters in the world.
"Kinda like Captain America and Batman." Mega Man said, pointing it out.
Boomstick: He's beat the shit out of Captain America, Iron Man and Daredevil. Hell, he once knocked out Karnak, who's also one of the world's finest martial artists, with just one hit!
"So he took down three of Marvel's best heroes and K. a master martial artist." Pit said, flabbergasted. "Woah, that's totally hardcore."
"Well if an Inhuman like Karnak gets brought down by the Wakandan King, then yeah I'll give that." Said Ness.
Wiz: He is incredibly strong, and can jump well over thirty feet.
Boomstick: He can even throws spears through stone walls!
"Holy crap, he's like superhuman!" Pit said in shell-shock.
"I know, right!" Pikachu said, looking as a shock as him.
Wiz: Typically for construction like this, a substantially hard stone would be used, such as granite. With this in mind, T'Challa must have thrown the spear hard enough to hit the wall with a force of over 20,000 pounds per square inch
Boomstick: Yeah, and the guy is literally strong enough to punch your jaw off.
Outsmarted Iron Man (Mega Man was astonished by this.)
The 8th smartest human alive
Wrestled a lion & a crocodile
Survived hits from the Hulk (Kirby was shocked by that.)
Broken Skrull bones
Created Shadow Physics
Took down the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men (Everyone was surprised by this.)
Defeated Klaw, Wolverine, Red Skull, Namor, & Doctor Doom (The Young Smashers didn't expect much but by reading the Black Panther's battle history, they weren't surprised by it at all.)
Wiz: He can outrun traffic, and is said to be faster than a panther, which can run around fifty miles per hour. He's quick enough to pull a fast one on Wolverine.
"Well, what did you expect from a man who has the power of a black-furred jungle cat." Dark Pit grunted.
Boomstick: Whoa, hold on! Did he just take out five X-Men by throwing another X-Man at 'em?
Wiz: Yes, yes he did.
"Geez, just imagine what he does against the Defenders or even the Fantastic Four," Pikachu said, amazed by this.
"Or the Avengers in general," Lucas said, looking a bit nervous for some reason.
Wiz: However, under that amazing suit, he is still human. Even with the panther god's power, he's still prone to failure. This has even caused him to relinquish those powers in the past. And like with kinetic energy, the suit can only take so many intensely focused sound blasts before overloading.
"Well, there's one major flaw in Black Panther's abilities," Junior said.
Boomstick: Still, the Black Panther is badass. he's got the tech, the skills, and the country to prove it.
Black Panther: Klaw, do you have any children?
Black Panther: Good, because I would have to kill them, too.
He stabs Klaw with a spear, giving a wince and horrid look from the entire audience.
For the prince-turned-king of Wakandan, T'Challa seems to be an okay guy and an awesome hero. Sure he's got the tech, the skills, and the country that makes him a beast but only to make direct confrontation to any big or small fights he needs for either justice or his own missions. Even if it's against other heroes, villains or anyone in-between them, he's capable of handling against anyone he may or may not win against. But nevertheless, this Panther King is good at what he does.
Now onto the next episode...
Wiz: Throughout the underworld of Gotham City, one name strikes fear into the hearts of even the most hardened of criminals.
Boomstick: The Goddamn Batman! You know who he is, the billionaire Bruce Wayne, and it ain't his first battle to the death.
"Yeah, if you haven't seen his last battles." Said Mega Man, pointing it out as he recalled Batman's battles against Spiderman and Captain America.
Full Name: Bruce Wayne
Height: 6'2" | 1.9 m
Weight: 210 lbs | 95.3 kg
Hometown: Gotham City
Net Worth: $9.2 billion
Has twelve masters degrees and is a master tactician
Favorite meal: Mulligatawny soup (Kirby: Mmm...soup...)
Wiz: Pretty much, though don't mistake his intentions. Vengeance may sound dramatic and all, but in truth, Batman fights crime in an attempt to save others from suffering the same kind of tragedy he experienced as a child.
And once again, they were saddened when they witnessed the origin story of Bruce Wayne as Batman along with the death of his parents.
Boomstick: How noble, and ironic, considering he was taught to be a badass by a group called "The League of Assassins".
"I don't know if I find ironic that he's trained a group of assassins," Viridi said, being skeptical by this.
"You won't be saying that when you found out whose leading those ninja assassins." Said Pikachu.
Wiz: Well, he dresses like a bat (Kirby: Cause he's Batman) (Pikachu: Shut up.), sleeps with a cat burglar (Yoshi: Who I'm still having that she's on the good side or bad side when she's around Bruce) and constantly brings children into battle, so he's clearly got a few complicated issues.
"If by a few complicated issues, you mean like having three adopted boys, one biological son, and a daughter of a police commissioner, so yeah his mental health levels are not so perfect." Ness said, not finding too obvious for one of "many" of Batman's flaws.
Boomstick: But let's see what he can really do. Bats is really, REALLY smart, and considered one of the best tacticians on Earth. No wonder he's always welcome at the Justice League, even though he doesn't have any superpowers at all.
Green Lantern: Wait, you're not just some guy in a bat costume, are ya?
Batman turns around and smiles at him as if that was a silent response.
Green Lantern: Are you freaking kidding me? What, nobody asked you to prom...so now you dress as a bat and prowl around your parents' basement?
Batman: *looks at him* What's this do? *Brings out Hal's Lantern Ring*
Green Lantern: Huh? *Saw the ring, then looks at his finger, seeing that Batman mysteriously took off somehow which revert him back to his normal self.*
Batman: No buttons. *Examines the Lantern Ring* I assume it works off concentration.
Green Lantern: How did you do that?
Batman: *Smiles at him* You weren't concentrating.
Green Lantern: *Brought out his hand and the ring return to his finger, changing back to his Green Lantern form* You won't do that again.
Batman: Unless I want to.
"Okay, I admit, that was a little bit cool," Ness admits it, slowly.
"I'm having a hard time to wonder where he got the time to swipe that ring off his finger," Viridi said, skeptically.
"Well, that cause he's-"
"Say that line right now and I. Will. Hurt. You...!" Viridi grimly said, interrupt the Pink Star Warrior then gave him a darkly and yet threatening glare.
Kirby is now stood in silence with a sweatdrop on the back of his head, feeling a dark aura that is surrounding him when he sees the Goddess of Nature like that. So, for a short and while moment, he broke that silence by saying, "On second thought, nevermind."
"That's what I thought," Viridi growled.
Wiz: Sure, he's intelligent, but he's also incredibly deadly.
Boomstick: He WAS trained to be a ninja, who's a master of infiltration and silent takedowns, so sounds about right.
"He's also the hero of the night so yeah, he really puts in the "bat" in Batman." Pit said, setting off a pun as much to everyone's dismay.
"Dude, you're killing us with those puns." Dark Pit groaned in annoyance.
Wiz: Bruce has studied every martial art known to man. After perfecting full-body control at the age of 18, he was able to quickly learn and master at least 127 of them, including Taekwondo, Muay Thai, Judo and Boxing.
Boomstick: It's not every day you can find someone who can literally take you down in 127 different ways.
"If it were anyone who is a master of many different fighting styles, it'll be anyone that's Batman, Captain America, and if possible, Slade," Yoshi said, simply.
Wiz: He is also touted as "The World's Greatest Detective", and with good reason.
Boomstick: He's like Sherlock Holmes on steroids. He once figured out that an opponent didn't have a tongue just by the way their jaw bounced off his knuckles. There's being a detective, and then there's being Batman.
"No comment." Pac-man simply responded.
"With that much intelligent, it's kinda obvious that would be a smart detective," BJ said, stating the obvious.
Wiz: And all that's before his handy-dandy Utility Belt, filled to the brim with all sorts of useful gadgets and gizmos.
"Oh right, there's that." Pit said, seeing Batman's signature Utility Belt.
Boomstick: A lot of which are thanks to his family business, Wayne Enterprises. From steel mills to airlines, to record labels, this company does it all, and that means Batman has it all, too.
Wiz: According to Forbes, Wayne's net worth, thanks to his company, adds up to 9.2 billion US Dollars.
"Woah. That's rich!" Kirby claimed with glee.
"Well, he is the Billionaire after all," Viridi said, putting in that obvious factor on Bruce.
Boomstick: With that much cash, he can afford any kinda weapon he wants, grappling hooks, smoke pellets, cryo and thermite grenades, and of course, the batarangs.
It's still impressive that the Smash Fighters have seen him carry this many gadgets and gizmos under his belt and used for many purposes, including the batarangs.
Wiz: Originally designed as a boomerang weapon, Wayne eventually molded his batarangs into custom shurikens, some of which are outfitted with electric shocks, flashbulbs, and explosives.
Boomstick: And last but not least, don't forget his bat-suit, it can resist fire, electricity, and bladed attacks, and is almost totally bulletproof, thanks to a Kevlar vest sewn into it.
"Whoa, that Batsuit still impresses me to no end," Said the Goddess of Light. "I still can't get over the fact that actual human-like Bruce that can wield an armor that can be resisted to anything to take on any punishment."
Wiz: Plus, his cowl sports night, infrared, and UV vision.
"Oh yeah, cause it works so well in his fight with Captain Rogers." Pikachu retorted.
Boomstick: But Bats is more than just a tech wizard, this guy bench presses a thousand pounds in his everyday workout, a thousand pounds! And I thought this guy didn't have any superpowers.
"To be fair, for a mortal human with no powers, he can push past his limits and strike his enemies down in fear." Stated the Goddess of Nature.
"Tell about it, I'm liking this guy already." Dark Pit said, smirking.
Wiz: He doesn't, the current bench press world record is actually slightly higher, at 1,075 pounds, solidly placing Wayne at peak human levels.
"Oh god! That's a lot, and that's saying something coming from me!" Mega Man said, admittedly.
Dodged Darkseid's Omega beams (Everyone is impressed by this.)
Stole Green Lantern's ring off his finger
Knows every fighting style (Everyone seems to nod at this one.)
Lifted 1,000 lbs
Escaped Wonder Woman's lasso (The Young Smashers find it hard to believe that.)
Has outsmarted Ra's & Talia al Ghul
Fought the Joker a dozen times
Defeated King Snake, Aquaman, The Red Hood (Jason Todd), and Superman
He's the goddamn Batman! (Kirby laughed proudly at that one.)
Wiz: This idea generally applies to him in pretty much every area, physically and mentally, he's strong enough to break through walls, rip apart car parts, and pull out prison bars. He's quick enough to avoid gunfire, and even Darkseid's nearly unavoidable Omega Beams (Pikachu: Which is not non-canon!) (Pit: But you have to admit it's still pretty cool.). In his strongest suits, he's even tough enough to take a hit from Superman.
"Oh right, I forgot he fought against the Man of Steel!" Young Link said, remembering that part.
"Though for a mortal like Bruce, facing a superhero from another planet is kind of a death sentence," Popo said, grimly on that last part.
"But in all honesty, I don't think he's a not bad guy if he were to face Batman if things a little... crazy," Phosphora said, looking a bit scared for a short moment.
Boomstick: Yeah, if Brucie ever enters the Olympics, everyone else might as well rage quit, same difference, really.
"Yeah, just imagine what he'll do against Sonic and Mario in the Olympic Games." Pikachu snickered.
"Yeah...Hey!" Sonic said in response until he angrily heard that last bit.
Wiz: That's not to say he's invincible.
Boomstick: True, whenever the Justice League gets in a fight with some big bads, he usually has to keep his distance.
"Calling back to Doomsday, understandable," Junior said in understanding. If there's a villain who is all-powerful and can kill anyone it comes across, then frankly it's a good idea not to get involved with something that's completely out of your league.
Wiz: He's also somewhat mentally unstable, and prone to lashing out, however, he knows this, it's one of the main reasons why he refuses to carry firearms.
"Oh right, because firearms are what killed his parents in the first place and made him the Batman of today, woopie-freaking-do!" Pikachu ranted in sarcasm.
"But didn't he used that Kryptonite gun when he fought against Superman?" Kirby asked.
"In the movie universe, yes! But I highly doubt that counts as one of his best arsenals."
Boomstick: That's a bummer, those are my favorite types of arms! Maybe they'll help him next time Bane tries to break his back.
Everyone winced at the scene where Bane breaks his back again.
"Ow! That still hurts!" Nana shouted.
"My back still aches for watching that," Yoshi muttered.
Wiz: But of all his traits, Bruce Wayne's strongest attribute is his sheer, unstoppable tenacity. Even after being drugged by The Joker after days without sleep, put in a straightjacket, locked in a coffin, and buried alive six feet underground, he refused to die.
Pikachu then turned his head to Kirby who apparently is smiling so sudden until he realizes why, then responded with a threatening growl, "Don't you dare say it-"
"Cause he Batman!" Kirby proclaimed, proudly.
"Goddamnit!" Pikachu swore, loudly.
Boomstick: It takes a lot, a lot, to take down the Batman.
Carmine Falcone: What the hell are you? *Brings out his shotgun*
The glass on top of his car broke as Batman grabs him by the collar.
Batman: I'm Batman.
Once again, Batman is still the most impressive hero of the DC Universe. There's nothing much to say about him except being a tough hero. With his brains, his gadgets, his abilities and everything else there's no telling what he'll be stopped by anyone, especially the Justice League, or it's founder, Superman. So technically if he can win against the Black Panther for his third appearance in Death Battle, he'll probably have his second win, but if not, well, at least he tried.
Now on to the votes...
Wiz: All right the combatants are set. Let's end this debate once and for all!
Boomstick: But first, all this talk of animals it made me think about eating some with Blue Apron.
Once again, despite Kirby's hunger to the Blue Apron commercial, everyone brings to vote.
Kirby: Black Panther (I know Kirby wants Batman to win, because of Black Panther being the superior hero, he decided to change his vote.)
Popo: Black Panther
Nana: Black Panther
Jigglypuff: Black Panther
Young Link: Batman
Toon Link: Batman
Pit: Black Panther
Dark Pit: Batman
Viridi: Black Panther
Phosphora: Black Panther
Mega Man: Black Panther
Bowser Jr.: Black Panther
Sonic: Black Panther
Black Panther: 10
It's a tie. Both votes have appeared the same... oh well, no harm, no foul. Let's see how it goes.
Now on to the battle...
Boomstick: But right now, it's time for a DEATH BATTLE!
(*Cues: Battle at the Zoo - Therewolf Media*)
In the first scene, we see Batman driving the Batmobile driving into the Gotham City Zoo listening to J-Pop (*Cues: Kimi No Dance Wa).
"Huh. I'm suddenly liking this music." Pit commented with everyone nodded to the agreement.
Just then, the Wakanda King, Black Panther, spots the vehicle entering the zoo and leaps over the wall towards some of the cages. Batman leaps out of the Batmobile with a flock of bats surrounding him.
"Hm. Looks like T'Challa was waiting for him to show up." Palutena said.
"Seems like it. After all, they both have something in common; they're both smart detectives." Mega Man replied.
"And they're both super-rich with great tech," Sonic added.
Before the fight begins, 'T'Challa takes off his mask and reveals himself.
Black Panther: To challenge a king is to face the might of his people!
Batman: I'll give them something to fear.
The King of Wakanda pounces at the Dark Knight as his opponent leaps over him.
Black Panther misses Batman but leaps off of the Batmobile backward for an attempted dropkick. Batman pushes him backward and tries punching him, but T'Challa counters and delivers a high kick to Bruce's face. Panther tries kneeing Batman in the face, but the Caped Crusader punches him back. Black Panther uses his intense speed to deliver quick slashes to Batman back and forth before comboing him into the air and into the Batmobile.
"Okay, this is epic!" Pac-man commented.
"With the way they fight, they're probably good at fighting up close," Sonic said, impressed.
Batman uses a smoke bomb to escape the onslaught, but T'Challa roars as he lunges forward toward the Gotham vigilante.
Batman is knocked towards the zoo's main plaza. Panther tries dashing at him and bounces off the wall when he misses. Bruce uses the opportunity to grab T'Challa with his grappling gun and punches him against the cage wall. Black Panther leaps back and the two skilled billionaires continuously counter each other blows until Panther delivers a heavy kick to send Batman towards the cage.
"Man, Batman is really giving him much punches, does he?" Said Popo.
"Perhaps, but T"Challa can handle anything, even while taking a hit." Pit countered.
Batman takes out his bola and tosses it at the Wakandan king, but Black Panther easily slices through it and punches Batman through the cage, which suddenly draws his blood, and sends him into the Lion's Den.
"Uh-oh." Kirby gasped.
"Oh right, I forgot they're fighting in a zoo," Pac-man said, forgetting about that.
"Right, because it wouldn't be a zoo without lions in it." Viridi sarcastically remarked.
The lions, who were disturbed and angry by the Gotham Hero trespassing their cage, start surrounding Batman as Black Panther leaps over the cage wall.
Black Panther: Caught you!
Black Panther lands next to Batman and the two black-clad billionaires are forced to deal with the caged beasts while continuing their duel.
"Oh wow, now they're fighting against lions while fighting each other. That's impressive." Said an impressive Pit.
"Yeah, but not for long." Replied the doubtful Blue Bomber.
Batman gets the upper hand by punching Black Panther with his batarangs and takes out one of the lions with his tranquilizer darts. When T'Challa starts heading back, Batman tosses three batarangs at him. Black Panther simply lets the first two batarangs deflect off of his Vibranium suit and slashes the final one to the side, which explodes and allows a rhino to enter the arena.
"Man that guy is getting even more deadly by the minute," Junior said, referring to the King of Wakanda.
Black Panther: Witness the power of a king!
Black Panther grapples the rhino with his hands and tosses it upwards before delivering a final slash.
"...I take it all back! This guy's a lot deadlier than ever!" Shouted the Koopa Prince.
While he's distracted, Batman runs into the cave his explosion created and discovers a manhole leading to the zoo's aquarium. T'Challa notices the open manhole cover after his run-in with the rhino and heads down into the aquarium, finding Batman across a long bridge.
Black Panther: Prepare yourself!
Batman: I'm prepared for anything.
"Are you sure about that?" Dark Pit said while raising a brow.
The bridge hangs over a pool full of killer aquatic animals.
"Something tells me that Black Panther isn't the only one that's being trapped," Viridi said as if he knew something about this outcome.
Black Panther: Playtime is over!
Black Panther begins walking across the bridge, but he sets off an explosive trap Batman placed near his location.
"I won't say that towards the King of an African Nation, Bruce," Ness said in a monotone voice.
The bridge below Black Panther collapses, but T'Challa uses his superhuman speed and reflexes to leap across the debris and makes it back to Batman.
Black Panther: Try again!
T'Challa regains his footing and leaps towards Batman and roars like his namesake.
"Whoa! Did you guys see that!?" Young Link said, surprisingly.
"I think I did but I wish I didn't." Toon Link replied with his eyes widened a bit.
Black Panther: Did you think you were safe!?
Black Panther slashes Batman's chest, which made half of the Smashers wince at this. Bruce tries to elbowing him back, but T'Challa ducks and begins to deliver a devastating combo, much to everyone slight horror for seeing Gotham Vigilante getting get beaten mercilessly.
Black Panther: The strong shall hunt the weak! That is the law of nature!
Black Panther ends his bloody combo by clawing off Batman's head and kicking the former billionaire's body towards the pool. Everyone is now in shocking horror when they see Batman's corpse is not only getting slashed by the Panther King himself but also devoured by one of the zoo's orcas.
No one dares to say anything about that when they stood in silence for a brief moment until Pikachu was the first one to break that silence by saying, "Whoa..."
Black Panther: And my rule is law!
With the battle ended, those who voted for the Black Panther suddenly cheering for his victory while those who voted for Batman groaned in defeat but clapped for him despite his now second loss.
(*Cues: Battle at the Zoo - Therewolf Media again*)
Boomstick: Whoa! That's a new one!
Wiz: Black Panther and Batman were pretty evenly matched. Both were super-geniuses and expert combatants.
"So in the first fight, they were in a stalemate," Viridi said, nodding in understanding. "No surprise there."
Boomstick: Well, BP was stronger and faster, thanks to that superhuman herb. It definitely helped, but alone, was not alone enough to beat "The Bat". Batman has won dozens of duels against people with similar or even better abilities.
Wiz: As far as skills were concerned, neither held a distinct advantage. (Ness: Which is obvious since they don't have something to physically harm each other.) However, that was not the case when it came to their weapons and armor.
Boomstick: Long story short, that Vibranium got Batman stumped. He just didn't have anything in that belt of his that could get around it.
"Right, since T'Challa's suit is made of Vibranium, it's used on protecting him from anything Batman throws at him is no different from his previous fights with others," Ness stated.
Wiz: We scoured the comics, movies, tv shows and more to see if Batman had any possible way of countering the Vibranium. While he's used hundreds of clever gadgets over the years, we were actually very surprised to find that he had no reliable method of getting around armor like that.
Boomstick: Take a look at Batman's fights with Bane, he doesn't have armor, but he's physically superior to Bats, just like Black Panther is. And what does Batty always do to beat him?
"Aim for the weak spot?" Sonic guessed.
Boomstick: Aim for the weak spot.
"Called it." He smiled proudly for that.
Boomstick: But guess what? Black Panther doesn't have a weak spot...
"Duh!" Junior, Pikachu, and Pac-man blurted out.
Wiz: It's certainly believable that Wayne had the ABILITY to develop a gun that could overload the Panther Habit. But even if he could, he never would wield it in the first place, thanks to his rejection of all firearms.
"There's also that," Kirby said.
Boomstick: And while his suit can stop a few knives and bullets, it didn't stand a chance against Black Panther's anti-metal claws. In the end, Bruce just Wayne'd in comparison to T'Challa.
Everyone groaned in dismay for that one pun Boomstick made. "Dude, that's just terrible." Pit groaned. "And that's saying something coming from me."
Wiz: The winner is Black Panther.
T'Challa: WAKANDA FOREVER!
The Wakandans: WAKANDA FOREVER!
With that ended, everyone agrees that this is the most exciting episode they ever saw. Batman may have lost again, but he tried his best and as for the Black Panther, well, let's just say that he's a pretty hardcore hero in the Marvel Universe. They can wait to see more combatants come by the new season of Death Battle.
Boomstick: Next time on Death Battle!
The scene turned black for a minute until a familiar voice came by the screen.
?: Azarath Metrion Zinthos!
And this is where Kirby and his friends jolted in surprise struck in awe for seeing a familiar sorceress in an azure blue cloak while using her powers against the bad guys she and her team of superheroes fought against.
"Is that... Raven!?" Pikachu said, surprised when he and the others see the Azarathian Sorceress.
"I think so," Yoshi replied, looking shocked as the others.
Next is a purple-colored horse, or pony as they see her, who was changed from a unicorn into a pony with wings. And sees a montage of her facing an army of bug-like creatures, a tall-legged like queen that serves as the Queen of Nightmare, another unicorn who is an excellent expert of magic, and even a large demonic centaur who is capable of absorbing magic and use it in a powerful fight with the purple-colored mare. Then we hear her voice speaking on screen.
?: I am Twilight Sparkle! And the magic I carry inside me is... the Magic of Friendship!
One big montage later, and the next fight begins in the exit episode as the title says:
Raven Vs. Twilight Sparkle
Everyone stood in silence when they saw the trailer of the new episode of a new fight beginning in Death Battle. The Young Smashers can understand Raven can be the next combatant in the next upcoming fight to the death, but with someone like Twilight Sparkle, a pony from Equestria like Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie, well...
"Oh you've got to be f**king kidding me," Pikachu said, breaking the silence and begins to look like he's seen a ghost.
And done! Don't worry, I'll working until I got everything just right and not left unfinished. So prepares you guys because there are more episodes to update. So stay tuned.
