This is by far THE BEST DB SO FAR!!!! XD
it's up? yay.
BTW please do not spoil the ending on the comment... Love ya all :D
OH MY FUCKING GOD YES
Overly energetic guy was annoying, but I was pleasantly surprised.
>expecting crap>AWESOMENESS ENSUES
YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES! That is to say, yes...
I honestly didn't expect them to go so in depth into Rainbow Dash's move set.I am impressed
DERPY ALERT @6:30
Best...Death Battle...EVER!!! /)^3^(\
OMG! This is superb!
that was well done.
I CAME BUCKETS OF RAINBOWS!!
rainbow definitely puts the pwn in pony!
That's it. I'm in love with Rainbow Dash.
I was surprised they used Rarity's line for Rainbow Dash.
Oh dear, that was awesome...
Good thing they didn't use post-epic adventure Rainbow Dash! She can do all this AND shoot lightning!
"Are we really doin' this?""Yes. Yes we are."Fantastic episode.
That was really good! I'm gonna watch more of these.
That... was totally unexpected.
Awesome and very well tough, two thumbs up
Eh, kinda disappointed to be honest, I was hoping Screamer would put up a better fight.Was pretty cool to see Derpy though!
"Props to you Japan, I didn't see that coming."
Lmao at Physics Brony Cameo. That was awesome.
LMAO @ 76,000 mph speed.And when starscream started firing the vulcan cannons is when I officially lost my shit.
It awesome that they are both Hasbro characters. Possible crossover anyone?Transforming Ponies.
Was there ever any doubt?
Been looking forward to this video all week. I was not dissapointed!Also, I squeed a little at the next time reveal.
Sweet fucking Celestia, that was amazing!
Wow, even I missed that Dash has a black belt, that was really detailed!
There is no part of this I'm not giddily happy about.That includes the reveal of one of the participants in the next battle.
That... was... SO AWESOME! /)^3^(\
The love and tolerate line made me :| though
Derpy cameo made my night!Oh man I loved that!!! :happydance:
That. Was. AWESOME!I didn't realize until they went into the stats just how crazy powerful Rainbow Dash is. Pulling mach 5 during a sonic rainboom, topping out at Mach 10? Hol-ee... But when you get aright down to it, they faced an airplane off against somepony who can control the weather. Think about that, an aircraft. That flies through the air. Against someone who can turn the air into a weapon.It was a foregone conclusion.
OMG, my life is complete now, that was SO AWESOME!!
Is there a reason that this video isn't showing up? I went to screw attack and i couldn't view it there either just a blank part of the page.
Rainbow Dash is best pony.
Nice.AlthoughSPOILER ALERT!!!Rainbow Dash isn't the type to eat the spark thing. Pinkie Pie is the type to do something like that.End Spoiler
Was this made by the same artist(s) that made the Super Mario Z series?
I think the bigger question is...How are the folks on the ScrewAttack's DB comment list handling it.When the teaser was shown, there was a lot of... negativity.
@Ikusa GTHey! It's a good thing to be known for love and tolerance, brony! LOVED this video. Very well done!
That was the single most fucking epically hilarious thing I have ever seen in my entire life. And I've seen my sister get her head stuck in a banister.
With Special guest star: Derpy!Interesting to see Mane 6 and the Fiends of Dream Valley guys get thanked in the credits.
If you listen carefully during the gamefly plug, you can hear Fluttershy's modeling music.
Hmm... I have a feeling a fair few G1s are going to be displeased at this...I, however, thought it was frickin' awesome!
that was awesome
I love you guys. All of you. All you commenters, Seth, and especially ScrewAttack.
woot! A win for Ponyville
OMG. This is awesome.
Too 1 sided
Wow, that was great.
@plasmafireNo. Screw attack started doing deathbattle About a year ago or so. They've all been great. WHile we love the pony here, Its a phenominal series they do, and every episode is as indepth with the characters who are fighting as they were for both of them here. Check it out. There are some amazing fights.
@~*Rainbrony*~ Buuuuuuut it's something Dash wouldn't say heck any one of the mane six wouldn't say that. I know the community prides itself on being accepting(for the most part)"Love and Tolerance" has often caused more controversy over what it actually it means then it's use as it's tactics against trolls but I digress.But like Uncle said from Jackie Chan Adventures said "Magic must defeat Magic"
That was... BRUTAL.And BEAUTIFUL.
Ponies gonna pwn.
"This is a pony. A baby horse girl toy. Why is it so awesome?"This is what every brony asks themselves upon induction into the herd.
That was amazing
I need to go lay down for now. That has totally drained me out of energy X3AND IT WAS AWESOME.
lol "This is a pony. A baby horse girl toy. Why is it so awesome!?"Cause she's Rainbow Dash that's why!
"THIS IS A PONY. A BABY HORSE GIRL TOY. WHY IS IT SO AWESOME." (about 4:20 in)My thoughts exactly after I started watching the show.
Oh god, the 2 best things in existence featured in a row on death battle. Ponies and Halo.
That was fucking awesome XD
now we know if the decepticons ever attack equestia we are in good hands.
Christ, I knew Rainbow Dash was fast, but that's just unfair. I always thought of her as one of the clumsy, but stronger ponies.If RD got into a fight with a regular pony, they'd be screwed....And she has a black belt...Great.
I'm surprised the Hasbro lawyers didn't step in at the last second to save their profits. But man, the black belt was a good catch.
I didn't know so many of my fellow bronies were big fans of the Halo series as well, possibly novels too.(I hope)
Giant robot only seems to have the advantage until you realize that it's Starscream. It's tough to even find an opponent that Starscream would even have any chance against.The detail they put into that was excellent, and it was an awesome match to watch. She even did the Buccaneer Blaze... off screen again.
I have to agree that that was pretty sweet. The detail they went into Rainbow's character and her skills definitely surprised me, and I'm a true brony. I didn't even know she was a black belt! Truly good job Screwattack. I applaud you.
I was laughing the whole way through and wow this is just the best thing EVER! great job no AWESOME FANTASTIC FABULOUS JOB! XD
Man, never realized how EPIC Dash really is till they explained her 'stats' in the pre-battle. I mean DAMN!
Am I the only one unable to watch this? I keep getting a player error stating "initialization failed: Error: Error #2--" (the rest is cutoff by the springboard logo). I've tried using Firefox, Chrome, and Explorer, and Flash is up-to-date. Any chance this will be on youtube soon?
This was FAR more amazing than I expected it to be.
Wasn't expecting this to be that great, man was I wrong. so worth the watch this late at night. Thanks! :D
just a quick note: Starscream is in PONYVILLE. his spark wouldn't have anything to take over anyway.
LOVE IT. RBD FTW! I liked how they utilized proper soundtracks from the shows.
Awesome! That was truly entertaining, and you can tell at least one of the hosts is a true brony :)
This. Was. Amazing /)^3^(\
Great episode, I couldn't end smiling :D
"Well, let's have it fight a giant robot.""YAAAAAAH!"XD
Starscream is cursed with immortality, so of course he's going to die. And now he's stuck in some pony's bowels, it's the worse kind of death imaginable.What's worse is all the things Starscream has lost to before the battle took place. Rarity's cat, Angel the bunny, Gummy the gator and a immobile unliving rock.Also it's proven to be clinically impossible to have worse aim than a storm trooper, I should know I create the stormtrooper syndrome virus.While very cool, this battle was pretty much decided from the start. Also what exactly did Starscream lose in the tornado scene.
Rainbow Dash is best... anything
Starscream/RD shipping... go!
And you call yourself a Decepticon Starscream... SHAME ON YOU!!! <_<
Rainbow Dash + Sonic Rainboom = EPIC WIN!!!Awesome Battle!!! Dashie is the Best Pony!!!
For anyone else that gets the video error I got, I figured out how to fix it: Right click the video, go to global settings, and click "allow sites to store information on this computer" it will reduce your protection against cookies loaded by flash, but it will allow the video to work.Hope this helps someone! Video was pretty awesome to boot!
'Well, let's make it fight a giant robot.''YEAAAAAHHHH! *charge*'Nice choice there.
Rainbow Dash. Putting the pwn back into pony.
Oh... oh god. This is gonna lead to flame wars. Not here though. I'm talking about the brony haters and transformer fans. I was hoping for a draw for them. They're gonna get really angry now. The guys who make this series... they have balls to do this... XD
Holy hot damn...I knew RD was awesome, but...Damn!
Oh god, that was SO SWEET! /)^3^(\
Literally the only thing I can say after seeing this is...THAT WAS SO COOL!
This was fucking amazing. Seriously, fucking amazing. I knew Rainbow Dash was the fastest flier in Equestria, but holy shit, I didn't know she was that fast. I'm surprised they neglected to mention the Gs she pulled from both her Sonic Rainboom and the turn she made while she was on it (mach ten).But prepare for an unprecedented flame war. And I'd advise everyone to just... not care. It was a fun video, but trolls will come out of the woodwork for this thing. And the best thing to do would be not to rise to the bait....but everyone will ignore this and the flame wars will persist.But let it be known that should the war for energon extend to the noble land of Equestria, it is in safe hands.
Also, Jim Sterling voiced Starscream?what the fuck
"Whelp, let's make it fight a giant robot." Best line. :PGo Rainbow, I knew you could do it! Though I kinda liked the thought of Starscream joining the herd. :)
Son of a bitch....son of a bitch! And I like G1 Starscream too! He got owned like a punk by RD!
Next time on "let's make it fight a giant robot"...plank from EDD ED N EDDY
I could just see that one coming.
Death Battle is awesome. Funnily enough, this battle was FAR AND AWAY the most one-sided battle in the entire series. All the others are pretty close matches, some are even extremely close. But Rainbow Dash doesn't do close, she just wins in the most epic way possible.Also, I squeed when I heard the theme for one of the competitors for the next battle.
oh look the nerd rage has begun because people can't seem to understand that starscream is hilariously incompetent
Oh my gosh! I am literally CRYING tears of AWESOME!
As soon as they talked about Starscream dying every frickin' episode... you knew how it had to end. Totally forgot that guy was in Beast Wars.
Where did they get the remix of the Sonic Rainboom BGM that they used during teh beginning of Rainbow's stat breakdown?
>inb4 the next Drawfriend is Starscream vs. Rainbow Dash edition.Let's all get on that, bronies.
"I'M INVINCIBLE!!!!"...You're a looney.
@darksasamiIt was Rainbow Rhapsody, by a little known brony musician called Makkon.
4.43where is that picture right there?!?And Fluttershy, please forgive me but I am converted over to Rainbow Dash now. However since it was one-sided (Starscream's history of never winning anything), Fluttershy, you still have a fighting chance.
good lord...are all of them that bad to watch...freezes up to load every 5 seconds...pausing to try and let it pre-load did nothing at all
That was surprisingly in-depth, I never noticed the Blackbelt and though I knew about the cyber school girl(that in and of itself extremely obscure), I didn't know he took over her body.Seeing the details I guess Rainbow Dash has a right to brag as much as she does. Freaking Mach 10!!That Boomstick guy's comments are hilarious.
@All Glory to FluttershyLet me guess. You're using Internet Explorer?
That was... beautiful. Wow. Like others, I wonder how G1s community will deal with it ^^;Also very curious about the special thanks to Mane6 and Dream Valley at the end. Was this a collab of some sort?
I'm a Transformers fan. I'm a G1 TF fan. I favoured the Decepticons. But even I knew Screamer was attending his own funeral here because, well, it's Starscream. Loved it.
Ho-ly parasprites.My jaw was stuck open for a full minute after that ended.That was amazing.I know nothing about Transformers, but I thought RD would have much less of a chance against something equipped with a minigun and missiles while she has no real weapons other than speed and agility.That was So Awesome!
This was freaking amazing! :D
THAT WAS EPIC!!!!
The immortal loser of robot kind...beaten by robots, humans, insects, dust, a microwave and now ponies. How low can you go StarScream how low can yo- oh wait...*Watches StarScream get eaten by RD.Well...can't get any lower than that...
Hey! Mane 6? The guys working on that fighting game?! WILL STARSCREAM BE A EXTRA CHARACTER?!Wishful thinking aside, you really can't help but pitty the poor seeker. He just can't seem to ever catch a break.Really the only reason he's the Air Commander is because his deceptive and sycophantic ways. Not skill.Just being good at what makes him so despicable.
@AltercationThat plays at the end, and is awesome. I hadn't heard it before, so thanks!The bit I was talking about is at 2:50 in the video, and I found it: Sonic Rainboom (Just An Old Mare's Tale) by IAmNotACleverPony.
As if there was any doubt.That was highly amusing, though. The commentary cracked me up.
Pretty Sure Rainbowdash is 20% Cooler than Starscream... Just Saying :PThis whole battle was made of win
:OThey used my song! Awesome!
To this, I can only say:/)^ε^(\Seriously, best thing ever. My respect for RD is even grander now. Let's say, by approximately one fifth?*watches the credits*Oh, they were aided by the "Fighting is Magic" and "Fiends from Dream Valley" teams in this. No wonder then it was so good ^^
I was laughing, saying the word "awesome", pumping my fist/hoof in the air, and downing a bowl of inexplicably manifested midnight snack cereal; all at the same time.
Thank you, Stephen Magnets, for using science to totally stack the odds against Starscream. I see another tsunami of free pony paraphernalia en route to your house. Time to buy another garage to stash it all in!
Can anyone give the source of the picture at 2:51? The first full screen picture of Rainbow Dash?
Oh, I can hear the parasprites raging right now...
Can anyone rip that video and upload somewhere?
@KeinNo need - Use the direct link I found buried in the RSS feed:http://cdn.springboard.gorillanation.com/storage/screwattack.com/conversion/362465.mp4
I spot Derpy!Anyway... SO AWESOME! /)^3^(\
even though the conclusion to this video was obvious after the stats it was still friggen sweet
I couldn't stop laughing when he said "Welp, let's make her fight a giant robot."XD
@Makkon: You swapped around the words "song" and "awesome" by mistake
So epically AWESOME!But hot damn. o.O Way to dramatize Rainbows statistics and abilities.
This video was playing songs straight out of my iTunes pony playlist.
Haha, I was entertained.
wow so coooool!
I lost it at that 90 degree turn
Well this is just the best thing I've ever seen.
I have no words to describe how awesome this is.
I'm a massive Transformers fan, and this was pretty cool. They seem to overplay Starscream dying, though. Starscream isn't a jobber or anything, and despite what some people think, Starscream is probably the most powerful Decepticon apart from Megatron and Shockwave (and Galvatron and Cyclonus, I guess...). He's a coward, but the reason Megatron always keeps him around despite Starscream trying to kill him all the time is because he's that damn good.This was funny, though. I await the parasprite rage.
So, I'm predicting that Starscream will show up at least once over the next two or three Drawfriends.
Well. There doesn't seem to be that many ragers at all in the comments over at ScrewAttack. What there does appear to be, however, are a lot of people expressing surprise over just how awesome Rainbow Dash is. New converts anyone?As for the video, I was so nervous the whole time. Starscream is a big target, and Rainbow Dash is capable of wrecking him in seconds, but she spent so much time playing around. As fast and small as she is, all it would take is one bullet to shred her. D: She wasn't taking it seriously enough.
Waited a while week for it, and I loved it. It felt a bit one-sided compared to most of their other battles, bit I figured RD was going to win anyways.I completely forgot that RD knew karate.
7,6000 MPH?anyone else see that?
Screwattack, thou hast redeemed thyself mightily in our eyes. -:D
The ownage is strong in this vid
Also, anyone else here Acousticbrony in the background after the thundercloud kick attack by RD?
the only way this could have been more awesome is if Starscream got backup form some of the Desepticons and then OPTIMUS PRIME came with Pinkie Pie and an even more awesome DEATH BATTLE ensued... a boy can dream...we need moar Transformers and Pony art
@b4bettyThe rule is it's a pure 1-vs-1. Neither side can ever get outside help.But yeah, we can always have more epic Transformer/pony art.
@TylendalQUICK! convert the entire comment section! GO BRONIES GO!
Heh, I knew it'd get into the air as soon as it did. Quite amused that Dash turned it into a game While Starscream was all uber serious about it.The pre-battle stat exposition more or less confirmed what I already suspected to be the case. The physics and nature of the combat just wasn't in Starscream's favor at all, at any point. As I said before in my pre-battle, Dash has the durability to withstand some epically brutal punishment, enough to withstand that which she puts her own self through because of her own abilities. Case in point, she can live through a 90 degree turn going mach 10 without all of her internal everything liquifying on the spot. If she can effortlessly shrug off the g-forces involved in that maneuver, there wasn't much Starscream was going to be able to do to her.In contrast, Starscream was screwed going in. His opponent controls the weather. That alone guaranteed victory for Dash, regardless of what Starscream did. Having worked as a maintenance worker on fighter jets for the USAF, I know for a fact that bad weather grounds jets for a damn good reason: they get torn apart like paper bags. Starscream learns this the hard way. Paid a wing for that knowledge.As soon as I saw that Rainbow Dash was announced as the opponent, I saw the outcome a mile away. Starscream never had a chance.
Also: Derpy Hooves epic cameo.
Whelp, Screw Attack finlly made a death battle that I enjoyed, now I'm gonna look over the comments on that channel to see how salty the Transformers fans are.I'm gonna bet the next Death Battle is gonna be master chief vs Samus.
This was the most tense battle scene I have ever seen. GO RAINBOW DASH! -brohoof- /)*(\
That was surprisingly awesome and not bad!
After seeing the preview last week I really though RD wouldn't have much of a chance. Even my friends and I discussed it, with me trying hard to make a case for just how good RD really is. I totally missed the Blackbelt thing, too. I was resigned to thinking Starscream would win, but at least it would be a sweet battle and represent Bronies and MLP.Then Rainbow Dash took a level in badass.My jaw is still buried somewhere in the ground.
Once you saw the Sonic Rainboom in the stats, you knew how this was going to end even if you were hoping for Starscream to win. A good fight none the less, It might be their best one yet. And it makes sense that Rainbow Dash would eat the Spark. She just pulled off all of her tricks in 2 minutes, she was going to be hungry after that.
Oh wow. that was too awesome for words.
She ate him. SHE FREAKING ATE HIM.IS Starscream a vegetable?
Has anyone seen my jaw? I dropped it and I think it's somewhere in China by now.
...........she......ate him.just watching it, expecting her to buck him into oblivion, *NOM*....................wow
Oh god...OH GODMY JAW IS IN PAINN!
ANyone know where I can find that painting of a jetplane and pegasus?
RD had it in the bag since the beginning!Two things:1.- Did you notice Derpy in the background?2.- Rainbow pulled off the Sonic Rainboom with only ONE hoof in front. Normally, she needs both hooves in front to achieve the necessary speed... Just sayin'
I honestly expected them to make the more obvious choice ofa gaint robot winning. Did not see that coming.Kinda hoped Starscream wasn't as much a pussy though.
I can't help but agree after watching the video. I thought Starscream would win this round being a giant metallic robot and all, but I didn't take into account how many 'moves' Rainbow has demonstrated throughout the first season and their combat application. Two hooves up for an excellent analysis.
Huh... Well... Color most of my issues with the entire concept of this that I had at first utterly pointless then.Guess they weren't giving Bronies the finger after all...Although I can't help but think that Screw attack is still going to get a massive amount of backlash from the haters now. I guess this means we'll be there to defend them if they need it though...Anyway, FUCK YEAH, RAINBOW DASH!
@Dusty the Royal Janitorlol, it was just like I said!
SHE ATE A DECEPTACON! OMG this was so awesome I couldn't stop laughing and smiling :3I love this fandom!
@Adrian BronyExcept maybe Pinkie's candy copter. Which would be hilarious!And yeah, this is Starscream we're talking about. He had lost as soon as he let himself be taunted.
Yes! Dashie won, but now I have to go buy her a medal.Derpy popping up in the background was nice.
That, bronies, is what we Tropers call a Curb Stomp Battle. As a child of the 80s, I found myself torn on this... Not on who I wanted to win, but on how I wanted them to handle Starscream, ostensibly the Decepticons' sharp-shooter (according to the stats on his toy).ScrewAttack, you have made me proud.
3 Days ago i got told I can do my dream job as a research project at university.This DB comes tie with that, and its been my dream job for 4 years.Also, i knew Dashie was gonna eat the life spark 10 seconds before she did.Should I be worried I can predict my Dashies actions before she does them?
@FirleycatHow can I agree more?I dont think its possible...GO DASHIE!
I had a feeling RD would win because the robot was some running joke, while still being a powerful, but could be pwned without complete wtf moment.
That was fricken hilarious
OK, I have to say I was way wrong with my earlier comments about how ScrewAttack was doing this just to mess with bronies. They actually did Rainbow Dash justice, and made a terrifically entertaining video. Well worth the 1.5 hours it took to download this thing on my slow internet connection.
Screwattackers seems to have take this well. Not much raging at all. I doubt same will happen when this reaches youtube.
I think this was just an excuse to show Starscream loser again. And it was marvellous.
@FlutterfanAh Plank. Master of the offscreen antics. Not even Pinkie Pie would stand a chance.
They did their in-depth research as usual and it came out great for both contestants.Animation and pixel art for this show just keeps getting better, and it was great this time as well!This was timed well, great pacing. good voice acting and of course: RAINBOW DASH WON!Starscream, despite him being a giant robot and a Decepticon with an impressive arsenal, is still a coward and cheap tactician. This is why Megatron stayed in command for generations.
That was just plain amazing.The fight was fun, but their rundown of Starscream's and Rainbow Dash's abilities was actually my favorite part.
Hah! They used Sonic Rainboom (Just an old mare's tale).
@shadowfalcon76All of the ponies can withstand epic punishment - look at what happens in Dragonshy. An attack that SHATTERS STONE leaves them with no visible injuries, and is merely enough to daze them. I'm not so sure that a single bullet would have been able to put one of them down.And the really scary thing is - RD is only the second most powerful pony (outside of the Alacorns). I'd go with Twilight for the most powerful. She has proven building scale telekinesis, that can be used on other creatures. Think about that for a second.
Did anyone else notice that they used the Fluttershy modeling music for the Gamefly advertisement about five minutes in? Pretty subtle.
DON'T GIVE RAINBOW DASH A VOICE! YOU KILLED IT!otherwise, it was awesome!
