August 19th, 2009 | EarthBound, Images

Saw this a while back on the FUNimation blog. Kind of a neat coincidence, because I work for FUNi 😛

So anyway, who would win in this fight?

Ness. Of course.

Poe said on Aug. 19, 2009

Vader would offer Ness steak and cake, thus luring him over to the dark side.

forten042 said on Aug. 19, 2009

Ness,I am your father, you know, the one you never actually see?

IWontGetOvertheDam said on Aug. 19, 2009

Uhhh… Sorry, gotta give it to Vader. PSI Rockin’ can only do you so much good when you’re being suspended midair with a force choke.

Also, lightsaber > baseball bat

Mato said on Aug. 19, 2009

Franklin Badge could also reflect Force lightning.

PK Mt. Fuji said on Aug. 19, 2009

It depends what items Ness has in his inventory.

santiagoff said on Aug. 19, 2009

Ness, duh.

Jeagle101 said on Aug. 19, 2009

Vader could be Ness’s father…

Deiphobus said on Aug. 19, 2009

ness, only if he uses the suporma.

WhatsHerFace said on Aug. 19, 2009

Draw. The combined awesomeness makes the entire area collapse.

Hey said on Aug. 19, 2009

This reminds me, where are the polls? Am I missing them or did you stop doing them?

Zinco said on Aug. 19, 2009

Unrelated, but I was just watching the EBFGP broadcast (TomBobBlender has been streaming since last night, trying to get a 1/128 Horn of Life from Manly Fish’s Brother—literally he’s been trying since around 9pm to now, 2:30pm the next day, not sleeping at all, fighting the same enemies over and over in Deep Darkness) and when you call your Dad with a maximum level, he says something like “Ness… has already reached his maximum level. That’s just fine, but… [two line breaks, as though there’s a long pause]”

What’s the deal with that, if you know?

L95 said on Aug. 19, 2009

It says that because you aint supposed to girund like that.

L95 said on Aug. 19, 2009

-grind

Joshua Johnson said on Aug. 19, 2009

No compititon. Ness.

Ness could just heal himself is he is hurt. Plus has Rockin Omega if he is in serious trouble, and If he has the Gutsy bat, then Vader’s fucked

Ness wins. Period

BlueLightning said on Aug. 19, 2009

Ness. PK Rockin’ would kill. As would PK Flash. And good SMAAASH means Ness wins. >:D

Swyldp said on Aug. 19, 2009

Why would anyone grind like that for a Horn of Life? Just BUY one from the shop!

Poe said on Aug. 19, 2009

It’s the bragging rights that go along with receiving a 1/128 item of any kind.

null said on Aug. 19, 2009

What is your position at funimation?

Mr. Jupiter said on Aug. 19, 2009

Neither, Master Hand beats them unexpectedly.

Shichiji said on Aug. 19, 2009

So wait, should someone make a comic about this?

Mato said on Aug. 19, 2009

null: translator

Zinco: I don’t know, I don’t think there’s anything to say about it.

Wil said on Aug. 19, 2009

You work at FUNimation!!?
How cool is that!

Now hurry up and translate that Keroro Gunso.
🙂

pooppoop said on Aug. 19, 2009

i find his lack of yellow backpack disturbing

Zinco said on Aug. 19, 2009

I don’t know, it just sounds so sad. Most RPGs don’t sound sad that you’ve spend so much time playing them (or indeed make any statement at all). It’s like your dad is disappointed that you’ve spent so much time grinding instead of just playing the game and having fun.

Krennthief said on Aug. 19, 2009

Keroro is supposed to be released on DVD this September, from what I’ve read up, but I’m not in on any official stuff because I’m… Not even at an eligible age to work yet…

But anyway, I’d have to go with Ness, but Vader reminds me of Masked Man, and conversely, Masked Man reminds me of Vader. But still, assuming he’s a post-Magicant Ness, then, I’ll have to go with Ness.

Mato said on Aug. 19, 2009

Zinco: Heh, yeah, I see your point now. Well, to be honest, I’ve never leveled up to 99 in the Japanese version so I don’t know if the double line break is intentional or not, or even if that’s what he really says. I’ll add it to my list of stuff to check for M2EB I guess, though I’m not gonna work on that until after the M1+2 patch is out.

Zinco said on Aug. 19, 2009

Oh, I didn’t mean to specifically highlight the two line breaks, they just add to the effect. At any rate, I guess I can ask on the forums.

shadyhibiscus said on Aug. 19, 2009

You know, everytime I watch Star Wars, I can’t help but think of Mother 3 every single time!

Still, awesome pic!

Gurp said on Aug. 19, 2009

Vader doesn’t have force lightning, Remember?
Also, theme that plays during the fight, ‘Battle against a Machine’

Steve! said on Aug. 19, 2009

Ness could win with PSI flash, vador would cry uncontrollably or worse.

Mato said on Aug. 19, 2009

Hey: I haven’t posted any real polls in a while, I used to do them Sunday afternoon but I had to rearrange my schedule and they wound up getting neglected a little. I’ll try to get them rolling again, they seemed to be one of the most popular things at the site and all.

stardude said on Aug. 20, 2009

ness, he can do lifeup, rockin, flash, and he’s good with a bat and yo yo.

TBird said on Aug. 20, 2009

Ness: You said you were sorry!
Vader: I lied, spankity spank!

Sisto said on Aug. 21, 2009

If only Paula was here.
She’d know what to do.

Mother rpg said on Sep. 12, 2009

if Ness used a awesome face the combined pwnage would blow up the planet

Mother rpg said on Sep. 12, 2009

you work for funimation!? omg hurry up and traslate dragonball kai!

Antiaverage said on Sep. 17, 2009

Ness is smiling in the picture because he just brushed his teeth. Vader is about to be blinded.

Lost Hero said on Oct. 1, 2009

Well, it’s EarthBound we’re talking about. I wouldn’t be shocked if this happened. =)

Pokey lives again said on Oct. 15, 2009

Tie but if vader brought the emporer and ness brought pokey ness would win [pokeys mech earthbound and mother 3 and pokey bots and pigmasks

EB4thew1n10 said on Nov. 1, 2009

death said on Feb. 21, 2010

Commander said on May. 3, 2010

10 bucks on the kid in the red hat!….. Cookies only restore 5 hp anyway

I said on May. 23, 2010

Ness

Anonymous said on Mar. 13, 2011

As much as I love ness, darth vader could just force choke him.

RadicOmega said on Oct. 29, 2011

Ness would win

AltoMaximus said on Jan. 5, 2012

Hey Mato, did you have anyhthing to do with the Avatar extras?

On Topic: it would be a good match.
A simple PK Flash can kill him, and Ness’ PK Rockin would just blow him away.

Mikeja78 said on May. 11, 2012

Yep. The PK Rockin would definitely do it. YOU WIN!

Mariotti said on Apr. 26, 2013

Bag of Dragonite vs. Lightsaber…
Yup, I would have to go with Ness.

Covey123 said on Jun. 20, 2013

Ness has Rockin OMEGA, and a Franklin badge, or better, his legendary bat makes his offense 255.
