    And therefore can't possibly be doing it without the word "actually"? I'm fairly sure you know better than that, and I don't know why you would pretend otherwise. I mean, you can clearly argue the point on the merits, so there's no benefit in this silly semantic game.

    I don't know if that's makes it canon that they share an universe... Akuma shows up in Children of the Atom, but that doesn't mean he lives in the same universe as the X-men. Not to mention SF vs X-Men, SF vs Marvel Superheroes and the whole MvC franchise.

    I think they are just guest characters.

    You were talking about multiple Superman feats (such as tanking a Supernova). Now you want to pick on infinity exclusively, even though you yourself admit its either has been done multiple times, or not at all.

    Can you please pick an example of an outlier that you actually agree happened and only once?

    Superman tanking a Supernova or something equivalent for example which has happened, more than once.

    You would think that, except harada flat out retconned the origins of the series and plugged him in. And usually, the story mode of tekken is canon. If he was just a guest, he would of been introduced like Geese was in tekken, or whatever the final fantasy character name is.

    It's canon that Akuma is in tekken. Now it's incredibly debatable as to weather or not we can consider him the same Akuma as the one in Streetfighter.

    Unlikely, It's just that there is a character in Tekken named Akuma that exists in it. He's not a guest character, just a version that exists there.

    The Death Battle way of resolving it is to question whether the Akuma in Tekken has abilities that are inconsistent with the Akuma in Street-fighter. If they contradict the Streetfighter version controls. If they are compatible Akuma can totally have the abilities of the Tekken version.

    Stuff like origin story, history, and other fluff doesn't matter. How does he fight?

    He fights a tad bit slower than expected but surprisingly a hell of a lot better than capcom's own attempts at a 3d shoto. The iconic Akuma moves are here, including raging demon, with a more fleshed out movelist (tekken normally has 40+ moves per character and Akuma is no different). However he's based off his sf4 appearance, not sfv. Shin Akuma also lurks in there too with a faithful rendition in 3d. Since Harada worked for 4 years to make him canon in Tekken, the power scaling should be even easier this time around. Akuma stalemated Kazuya. Who was beaten down by Jin. Ryu can not beat an Akuma that isn't holding back, who stalemated against an opponent who is weaker than his upcoming fight. Ryu should lose this pretty hard. I agree whoever said it up thread: Jin would be better matched against someone from KoF.

    Yep as I said before Jin should fight Rock Howard. Both are sons of Evil businessmen who inherited dark powers that they struggle to control.

    I thought the theme of the fight was "boring protagonist with cliché evil powers he can't control".

    I'm still not convinced SF and TEKKEN share an universe. At best, the Tekken universe has its own version of Akuma. There are large scale events in SF canon that are not even mentioned in Tekken. And vice-versa.

    I doubt Akuma's role in Tekken7 will be mentioned or even alluded to in future games, when whatever deal Capcom and NAMCO have ends. IMHO, they just gave Akuma a particularly proeminent role in the story because of how popular he is and possibly because they already had part of the cutscenes and spoken lines already made (for Tekken x SF, which NAMCO was developing until Capcom killed the franchise with the DLC-horror fest that ia SF x Tekken).

    Anx hey... We see Evil Ryu fighting Asura, from Asura's Wrath. A game developed by Capcom... Actually, now that I think about it... Have they ever used Asura in DB? He'd be a cool choice.

    [Unrelated Rant about Tekken story]
    Jin beating Heihachi and Kazuya is one of thr dumbest moments in the series... It undermined the two main villains of the series and made Jin even more boring as a protagonist. They later explained that Jin's victory was in part because he was waking his devil gene and because Heihachi and Kazuya were not at full strength due to fighting each other a few minutes before meeting Jin (who has been captures by the Tekken Force and had been in captivity for a few hours), but even then, it was a terrible story decision, IMO.

    We can all agree that it sucks just how badly Paul Phoenix gets shafted. Guy is able to fight even with Kazuya for hours straight.

    Is flat out better than nearly the entire cast to an insane degree. And yet is never allowed a win.

    "Like it fancy-pants? It's a localized gravity field -- like you're tryin' to stand up in a black hole or somethin'. A big one. Some kind of outer-space dingus. Came in the last shipment." - Panel.
    So they guy talking about it has no idea what it is, how it works, and barely understands what it does. Emphasizes big thing over the insane gravitational pull of a black hole, but the poster says it's a black hole.

    But one point that does matter, "X respect" will pull comicvine & reddit threads which can some times be helpful. Comicvine also has some power feat math you can reference if needed too.

    Paul DID win a Tekken. He slacked off cause he thought he was still hot shi.. and got his butt pushed in. He's been training ever since to get back on top, but when the final fight of a tournament is a god, you tend to bow out. Considering that the Mishima family are a bunch of monsters save Hiaichi (who is dead dead this time. Like on screen killed dead) and tend to be the final bosses of the tournaments, specially since the war was started to take over the planet, Paul will not be winning again till this mess calms the f down. Even Violet is backing out of this one, and between him and Lars, they the closest thing to a normal Mishima that you can get.

    Adding to this and repeating an earliar point I made the last time Superman came up.

    One of Superman's primary powers is ignoring the natural laws that govern gravity and momentum in order to levitate and flie--to the point of being able to effortlessly and remotly generate momentum in a gravityless vacuum(flying in space.)

    Withstanding any level of Gravity, for Clark, is not a feat of strength or of toughness. It's a feat of the abillities that allow Superman to fly.
    I also answer to Bookmark and Shadow Claw.

    I'm not sure about that, actually... Superman is said to have some sort of tactical telekinesis, which is often used as the explanation why he can carry bizarrely large stuff without breaking them (although seemingly every other super-strong character is able to do the same without the telekinesis), and at one point he even comments that stuff "feels lighter" when he's flying. Rather than ignoring gravity, I think he uses telekinesis to exert force on his own body, thus propelling him... Specially because there are scenes of him being affected by gravity-based powers and the like.

    It's still not a feat of physical strength, of course, but it isn't just him being downright immune to gravity (that wouldn't allow him to fly the way he does).
