Video: 'One Minute Melee: Lucario vs. Renamon'
In response to the ultimate fanboy question, "who would win in a fight?" the web-series Death Battle from website Screw Attack decided to finally answer the question with actual "research" about the abilities of various fictional combatants, complete with sprite animations of the fights. Then, because research, even fictional research, is hard, the spin-off series One Minute Melee was started, which is a quick and dirty, no explanations, this-is-how-we-want-it-to-go-down version.
Furry characters appeared as fighters in various previous Death Battles, including a Ninja Turtle battle royale, the last turtle standing versus Zitz of Battletoads, Yoshi of the Mario games vs. Riptor of Killer Instinct, catgirls battle Felicia of Darkstalkers vs. Taokaka of Blazblue, Shadow the hedgehog vs. Vegeta of DragonBall Z, Sonic the hedgehog vs. Nintendo's Mario, MLP:FiM's Rainbow Dash vs. Transformer StarScream, Pokémon Pikachu vs. Street Fighter's Blanka, ThunderCats' Lion-O vs. Masters of the Universe's He-Man, Star Fox's Fox McCloud vs. Bucky O'Hare, Super Mario Bros.' Luigi vs. Sonic the Hedgehog's Tails and a Pokémon battle royale between the final evolutions of the Kanto starters. One Minute Melee's featuring furry characters include Super Mario Bros.' Bowser vs. Sonic the Hedgehog's Dr. Eggman and Pokémon Mewtwo vs. DragonBall Z's Frieza.
What other furry match-ups could happen in the future? Krystal vs. Master Tigress? Po vs. Skunk? Master Shifu vs. Master Splinter? Rocket Raccoon vs. whoever won that Fox/Bucky fight? A fight that doesn't involve Kung Fu Panda or Star Fox? Sabrina vs. Zig Zag?
