Welcome to the third part of the Character Battle series. If you don't already know, this is a series where 2 characters are chosen to fight each other and the community picks who would win in a fight and why they would do so. In the last part, PaRappa couldn't believe hard enough as his martial arts couldn't save him from Toro's raging demon, proving what it means to be the mascot of Sony. Now in this part, we have two heavy hitting, sword swinging, bada**** going toe to toe to each other, and they are:

 

Dante

VERSUS!

 

Raiden

In this fight, Dante will have everything from his new game and only his new game, not just his psasbr moveset, meaning he has the ninja stars, inferno fist, shotgun, etc. along with the moves that go with them and his Devil Trigger. Raiden... well since his game hasn't came out yet he can do things from mgs4 and msr. He not only has his sword, but sub weapons as well. It is no mercy match till one is left standing, and the reason why they are fighting... well let's just say Raiden does not like (wants to kill, and vice versa) the new Dante.

 

You can set up a battle scenario if you want to or not. Voting ends at 8:00 p.m central time tomorrow. Also, I am not taking votes for reasons like "Becasue I hate new Dante" and things like that, so have legit reasons.

 

SO LET THIS BLOODBATHED BATTLE BEGIN!

Dante. I feel like he's faster, stronger, and overall smarter with tactics than Raiden. All Raiden has his eyes on is killing whats infront of him. NO EMOTIONS. Dante learns his enemy, and can use different tactics accordingly. Dante.

If u have a mic and would like to fight with or against me, add me!

They both seem equally supernaturally powerful in their games, killing giant demons/MG Rays. I have to go with Dante. Plus, he's all sorts of fine Smiley Wink

Seriousl though I find raiden faster and more accurate, and ya dante goes with the flow and can pull off stylish combos but I think Raiden might have the edge.

I almost said I couldn't accept that, but then I saw the bottom words so you get a vote in.

I think Metal Gear's significantly more realistic (relatively speaking) approach helps it in this case. Demons, magic and the like are tough, but we never really see a measure of exactly how tough at any point in the series. Rising on the other hand has actual combat situations, military-grade tech and towering war-machines which themselves stand out inside the war zone.

 

The realism really highlights just how stupidly power Raiden is when you see him tear through all that.

 

 

Were we talking about Dante from the normal continuity, he'd take this hands down (literally).

Lol ya I wrote that in because I knew I needed to give my explanation.  I love Dante (Not to get confused with old Dante I just refer to him as Dante instead of New Dante) and think he has great moves.  Just this thread made it so easy to share that picture XD

I feel like this one isn't even a contest. Ever since we knew the entire character roster of PSASBR...I always counted Raiden to not be one of the strongest. Like...don't get me wrong...he's definitely a badass. But...his power level is really only most evident against normal humans...like Nathan Drake. (However...with Nate's luck he might actually have potential to take down Raiden as well.) Dante is more on the level of Kratos and Nariko...and I know Raiden can't really touch them. I believe that Raiden wouldn't actually fair too well against some of the cartoonier characters such as Ratchet and Jak. Raiden is the most powerful in his own series...I'm sure. LIke...he's obviously more physically powerful than Snake thanks to his cyborg ninja status. But, Dante is a half angel, half demon warrior with mastery over nearly any weapon...and he's nearly immortal in the strictest sense of the term. Not to mention the fact that he only becomes more and more powerful over time. Dante has super human speed, strength, and agility without the limitations of human technology. He has more weaponry at his disposal...and the ability to tap in to slivers of his demon potential with devil trigger. I vote Dante.
