Will the real Mike Tyson please stand up XD
Well, he might not be the real Mike Tyson, but he is the real M. Bison.
But honestly, having TJ Combo as his opponent is dumb. We all know who Balrog's true opponent should have been.
Then all we would have needed is Mario as the announcer and referee.
Balrog's full name in Japanese is even "Maiku Baison".
I am glad some of you actually got this reference XD
Yeah he had a name change lik3 out of 4 of the heavenly kings. In order to avoid lawsuit(and a particular scandal at the time) Balrog became Vega, and Vega became M.bison XD
Mike Bison was renamed "Balrog" (which I'm surprised Tolkien's estate hasn't trademarked), Balrog was renamed "Vega", and Vega was renamed "M. Bison". So... who was the 4th renamed character?
I made a mistake actually, of the 4 heavenly kings only Sagat stayed the same.
Don't you know? In the original Japanese versions of Street Fighter, Sagat's name was "Shenlong". That's why Ryu always said you must defeat him to stand a chance against him.
I'm just kidding, don't take this as fact.
And while nobody in-universe in the games will ever acknowledge, I consider this Street Fighter fan film's explanation for the name change to be canon until proven otherwise.
Skip to 7:31 to see the amazing explanation.
only reason i want TJ to win is because his theme is awesome and he went toe to toe with riptor
There is only ONE true Black Knight.
about time we get shredder but who's his opponent
you mean silver samurai? Hes a wolverine villain that doesnt get much attention.
oh yeah now i remember. he's a mutant who can make his sword cut through anything. and shredder looks sort of like wolverine.
Jesus Christ, SFV Balrog looks gigantic without his jacket on. He looks like he's either been taking too many steroids, or looks like he need to stop working out. It actually looks really weird. Anyway, it was a good match.
So now we're finally getting Shredder to show up in a Death Battle. Kind of disappointing that his opponent isn't a member of the Hand. When we are finally getting the long awaited showdown between the Hand and Foot clans to determine who is the best ninja clan named after a body part?
Totally surprised to see Silver Samurai showing up though. He was everywhere in the 80's and 90's, but then the 2000's hit and I guess everyone got bored of him or something and just killed him off and nobody ever brought him back. I think Omega Red had the same fate too. Weird how that happens to Wolverine villains.
Separate names with a comma.
