    I stopped taking their judgement when they had a 25-foot robot that turned into a jet lose to - at max - a 6 foot equine whose only power was to fly at super-speeds.

    ...as explained in the video, was able to basically turn into a nuke. That battle wasn't very legit either. (Why can't people sit still through the explaining?) Honestly I really dislike the ones were in a different circumstance the character could win, that isn't the very specific one. Vegeta could kill shadow but if his trump card is a second late, are we sure that would happen if they met? I mean if Vegeta survived the attack then that be fine. Also I really have a peeve in Zelda vs Peach that thing that was flying into the air just stayed there for a while which doesn't obey physics at all and it was too coincidental to be taken seriously. Also with Sonic being able to do that to Mario, if that was a 3D plain then Mario could have SIDESTEPPED and just dodged it. Ok now I'm starting to stop taking their judgement seriously.

    End point: They're actually shite. But the only battle that I had qualms on was the Starscream vs Rainbow Dash battle. That was unfair to begin with, and they tilted it so far the other way that it became absurd. Also, Sonic would still have beaten Mario. Japanese Tokusatsu has taught me that super speed basically trumps everything.

    Then why was pretty much the same battle (terminator vs robo cop, robo cop had every advantage except speed similar to Mario end up winning) except the same rules were turned on their head?

    The Terminator isn't fast. Can go forever, but he doesn't have super-speed. Also, they were using guns. Mario does not use guns.

    I would like to point out the fight at the end does not determine the outcome of the battle but is rather a visual representation of the research.

    Their research forgot that Starscream is a 25-foot tall robot with the strength of such. He may be a coward, but he's a backstabbing one, thank you very muchly.

    There's BatInTheSun's super-powered beat-down, but that's decided by fans, which can lead to.....wonky situations. At least Captain American winning out against Master Chief made sense by how they did it.

    I don't think they forgot it.
    I remember the Spoony One had made one which funnily enough was released the same day as the first Death Battle. Only one episode was ever made however.

    I DISTINCTLY remember there was some serious hanky-panky going on with the sizes there! I mean, Starscream turns into a JET! Those are pretty darned big!

    Transformers and consistent size are two things that never did go together hand-in-hand. I remember a few instants where s Transformer would be one size but then in another they'd be bigger or small compared to others. I like to called this Fist of the North Star syndrome.

    Yeah, but he still should be bigger than that damn horse! They pulled out the most obscure of weapons from obscure games for some fights, but get sizes wrong?

    Well they're working with sprites can't be too easy to adjust the size of a sprite if you don't want it too look like crap. But I do agree with you on the size thing even if it is just cosmetic and really has no effect on the outcome in the long run.
