Luffy vs. Goku

Once again I post a cool picture and do not know the name of the artists who drew it. This particular piece pits two of my favorite Shonen heroes against each other.

First off, let me say that Luffy vs. Goku isn't a match. This would be a one-sided beat down with Goku not even having to use much of his strength to defeat Luffy. Even Krillin would beat Luffy with not much effort. Still, this is a pretty sweet pic and even I can put aside my knowledge of the outcome to take in its awesomeness.

In the world of anime it isn't hard at all to believe that a shrimp can beat a shark, so Luffy can defeat Goku.

If you haven't seen Eyeshield21 I advise you to watch it, when you reach ("deimon Devil Bats" vs. "Dragons") your going to believe it with your own eyes

I get what you're saying but DBZ characters are in a league of their own.

Do you know there is a PS2 game:
DON: Dragon Ball vs Onepiece vs. Naruto?

Just wanted to tell you about it, nothing more

Heh, Reggie mentioned something similar (but diff game series) at his video game blog.

And cause no one demanded it...*Ahem*


Buu: "Why you go down? You no play?"

Goku: "We'll get to that, but first, I thought I'd take a minute to teach you a thing or two about Saiyans...Staring with, the basics."

Buu: "Super...Saiyan-jin?"

Babidi: "Don't both with it. I never asked you to explain anything."

Goku: "You're going to love this---Trust me! What you're seeing now is my normal state."

*Fwasp!*

"This is a Super Saiyan. And this..."

*Kzznng!!*

"...This is what is known as a Super Saiyan that has ascended past a Super Saiyan. Or, you can just call this a Super Saiyan 2."

Buu: "Oh! Oh ho!" /Curious

Babidi: "Ho-hum, what a useless transformation. You've change your hair---so what?"

*Goku chuckles to himself while busting out 'that smile'.*

Goku: "Just wait!"

*Other characters muse on a new state being possible*

Goku: "And this..."

Master Roshi: "Eh?! Whats...he...doing?!?"

Goku: "Is...to go---even further---BEYOND!!!! EAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!"

Piccolo: "Nghh!! *Eyes wide* It's...Unreal! How is he generating that much *power*!"

Goten: "Do it, dad!"

Krillin: "Nnn---Too hot!!"

Tien: "It feels like the whole world is shaking apart! What is Goku doing? If he doesn't stop this, everything is going to be destroyed!"

Mr. Satan: "Ghhh!! *Flop* Please, somebody make him stop!!"

(etc)

*Babidi sweats balls*

Goku: "I'm sorry that took so much longer than the others, heh, but I've not had much occasion to practice this one. This is what I call a Super Saiyan 3."

Anyways, the only real way to have a chance against the DBZ characters is to have a certain power that puts you on a somewhat equal playing field and/or know who you're dealing with.

For instance, since Goku didn't outright destroy Captain Ginyu when they fought (Goku is a nice guy & gives chances), Ginyu was able to use a body-swap technique. Stuff like that is your best chance short of blowing up the planet (which Kid Buu does during the last story arc).

If you had a vs match against Vegeta, appealing to his vanity (this is before he turns over a new leaf at the end of the series) to buy time to do something is your best bet, as was the case with Cell achieving his perfect form.

Didn't know there was a PS2 game like that. Sounds cool. Too bad it will probably never make it to the states. Jump Superstars didn't come here either.

Tommy, bravo!
