Name me a better pilot than Tetsuya Tsurugi.
protip: you can't
He's a real pro who always finishes his job, unlike those shitty teens with mommy issues.
Say what you will about his AT warranties, but he's supreme survivor.
he may not have the raw talent, but he's got the power and the Guts to be Tetsuya's partner.
Tetsuya. you need a Great Mazinkaiser. there is zero reason you should still be using Great, even if it DOES have Kaiser's Alloy.
plus. how are you, Kouji and Duke gonna Curb the Getter teams?
Yeah no, his manliness is a front for fatal daddy issues.
Fucker drops everything because Koji comes back, and acts surprised and offended that LORD FORBID Koji would want to reconnect with his long-lost father. Then proceeds to botch an operation that results in him getting knocked out of commission, leaving the rest of the Science Fortress to pick up the slack. Which then leads kamikaze attack by Dr. Kabuto
that FUCKING ENDS IN VAIN AND KILLS THE PERSON WHO HE WAS ACTING ALL PROTECTIVE OVER.
That whole final arc essentially exposed him and it made me loathe Tetsuya ever since. Hate him so much, I always swap Jun into Great Mazinger whenever I have the opportunity in Super Robot Wars.
Want a better pilot who actually acted like a pro and tore shit up? Chirico motherfucking Cuvie.
>comparing Hokuto no Ken to Dragonball Z
You know... I know what you're coming from but it might make sense.
The Z people can fly, do sparky shit and level whole cities, but I'm pretty sure they're already dead if hit by any of the assassination techniques from the various martial arts schools in HnK. That's a kinda weird comparison and would depend a lot on each situation.
yeah, if he could die of a heart attack it seems like Hokuto Shin Ken could work
Kenshiro connecting successfully is a totally separate matter, but I bet Hokuto Shin Ken would work.
I dunno about the Nanto styles.
>implying Kenshiro can defeat Goku
I mean, sure, if we use the author's power to ignore everything then he might have a chance but if we're just comparing Kenshiro vs Goku then obviously Kenshiro doesn't stand a chance despite being a better character from a better series.
Also you're crazy if you think a Mazinger can stand toe to toe with a Getter, especially if you think Mazinkaiser can fight on equal footing with manga Shin Getter
I was discussing the Hokuto Shin Ken against Goku issue with somebody irl and they said
>It could definitely kill Krillin
and then we laughed at the idea that killing Krillin is any sort of achievement
Mazinger only needs a Pilder and the main unit to kill the monster of the week, Getter needs the three units. So by that math Getter is weaker since Mazinger is more efficient with 2 to kill a monster instead of 3.
Well, Krillin is the strongest pure blooded human in the Dragon Ball world.
For a franchise based around the concept of always being able to become stronger with training and determination, DBZ sure likes to have humans be limited.
>Krillin is the strongest pure blooded human in the Dragon Ball world.
Come on son
>implying a nondumb route
also while power levels classic king of whatever power is needed Doraemon made a guest appearance at a recent wrassle show.
didn't work a match though, so Keroro > Doraemon
He's half-breed (the third eye is supposedly from some alien race that came to Earth long ago)
This thread is going places.
Mazinkaiser is absolutely as strong as Shin Getter so long as the writers remember to give it Kaiser Nova.
I mean, Kaiser is fucked if it's fighting Shin Getter and Shin Dragon, but that's another matter
Well, technicaly he's just a descendant, and a human for what matters. A human with a third eye and who can grow extra limbs, but eh.
This "triclops" race has been around in a lot of DBZ games (could even be selected by the player in that MMO) and was mentioned first in the 7th Daizenshuu (a kind of series information book supervised by Toriyama himself) back from 1996. Seems solid enough.
Not anymore. Shin Mazinger surpasses Mazinkaiser, specially the Shin Mazinger Zero (the actual Protagonist, not the Zero Mazinger) I mean shit even original TOEI Mazinger survived crazier shit than Mazinkaiser.
Again, Kaiser Nova. TV Shin Mazinger doesn't have anything on that level and neither does Toeizinger. Shin ZERO is Demonbane tier, so it is stronger, naturally.
The problem is we just don't have all that much in terms of actual stories that feature Kaiser to accurately gauge its power. I heard the original SRW concept for it featured some kind of "demon mode" that never came to light, for example
>The problem is we just don't have all that much in terms of actual stories that feature Kaiser to accurately gauge its power.
Assuming its attacks are all scaled up on the same scale from Mazinger Z's that remain in the same position to each other in terms of what's strongest and what isn't, Movie Mazinkaiser's weakest attack one shotted one of the Seven Death Generals.
>Again, Kaiser Nova.
Holy shit, fuck off with the irrelevant attack boner. Kaiser nova isn't shit.
>Shin ZERO is Demonbane tier
It's only strong against Mazinger-universe foes, gg.
Well, on the other hand, it was powerful enough to have a combo attack with SKL in SRW BX and not be completely overshadowed by it
Isn't Mazinkaiser's weakest attack the Reito beam? I don't think Mazinger Z ever used that
>It's only strong against Mazinger-universe foes, gg.
I said Shin Mazinger, not Shin Zero, Shin Mazinger can use the "Photon Friends" attack. It was the only Mazinger that survived against Shin Zero.
>Isn't Mazinkaiser's weakest attack the Reito beam? I don't think Mazinger Z ever used that
He did, The attack was alternately fired from the mouth grill or the spikes on the sides of Mazinger's head.
