Epic Pop Culture Battles

Time for a classic “who would win in a fight?” post.

I’m taking a series of characters, fictional or non-fictional, from books, TV shows, movies, or real life, and pitting them against each other. Doesn’t matter if the match-ups are totally nonsensical. From a box of random names I wrote down on slips of paper, I pulled out some interesting match-ups. There are some videos on the Internet that do the talking for some, while others are too far out in left field for visual description.

Indiana Jones vs. Zombies

Indiana might survive a fight against zombies for a while, but after he runs out of bullets, the undead would swarm him, his rope proving no use. Of course, what do I know? I’ve never even watched any Indiana Jones movies, but this seems like a no-brainer.

Mario vs. Harry Potter

Mario is much faster and nimble than Harry and doesn’t need long winded spells to attack. He can jump high, shoot fireballs, go down pipes, and turn into Super Mario. And Mario can’t be hurt by spells because he’s animated and has no blood (or so I think). But, as this attempt at a good descriptive video shows, all Harry has to do is turn Mario into a rat and he wins.

Walter White vs. Luke Skywalker

The only things saving Walter White in this battle is his “crazy handful of nothin” explosive mixture and his mad meth making skills (might be able to impress Luke with the blue stuff). Without a light saber to match Luke, he’ll be like the pizza on the roof, flat and roasted. Though, Walter could still run Skywalker over with his Winnebago 😀

Voldemort vs. Bill Gates

Avada Kevadra! Done. Voldemort wins. That’s with a silent “t”, by the way. Unless Bill Gates pays off Voldemort with his money or finds a way to reprogram him, this will be over quick. But I hear that Bill got an intern to do the fight for him, since he’s Bill Gates and can do that. Or he cloned himself. Or replaced himself with Mark Zuckerberg. Voldemort can’t be killed unless all of his horcruxes are found and destroyed so this battle depends on when it is happening in the Harry Potter timeline: at the very end or somewhere in the middle. The wonders a random draw from a box can do.

Batman vs. Superman

And what do you know, a feature film pitting these iconic superheroes against each other is coming out. I have no idea what’s going to happen in the movie, but I believe Superman would win in a fight because he’s got more superpowers.

Here’s the trailer for the movie coming out in 2016:

Rick Grimes vs. Frodo

Seriously? Rick Grimes would totally kick Frodo’s Hobbit butt. The only defense Frodo has is the ring that makes him invisible and sends him into another dimension. Rick’s got tons of ammunition and an entire world of walkers on his side.

Scooby-Doo vs. Spongebob Squarepants

So an animated dog against an animated spongeguy? Tell me how this makes no sense. I suppose if it was happening on land, the dog would win because Spongebob would dry out, while in the water Spongebob would win because dogs can’t breath underwater. But in terms of which character is better, I would go with Spongebob because at least he’s the main character in the show and can speak regular English.

Spider-man vs. a cow

Spider-man wins in a dance off. Nuff said.

Sherlock Holmes vs. Dr. Who

I don’t think this battle could ever be won. Both of these men are as smart, witty, and just plain awesome as the other.  I guess a humorous video will solve things – or not.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Worlds Colliding.”

Take two main characters from two different books works of art (either fiction or nonfiction) and introduce them to, or have them meet, each other. What would happen next?
