Do you know what makes hack and slash games so satisfying? Performing combos that makes you feel like a badass.
In terms of Badass 1: Kratos 2: Ryu 3: Dante 4: .... I can't decide In order of strenght 1: dante 2: Nero 3: Ryu 4: I can't decide, I don't know what powers Boyonette girl has, I never played it. It's not really fair to compare characters from differant universe in terms of strenght, it would be like comparing Superman to Batman. Obviously Superman is stronger. I;m only getting into Hack and slashers right now though, starting with DMC4. Already played Gow3 though. Edit--- She does seem sorta badass, I will play it to find out.
Bayonetta is so badass that she killed a huge monster while she is Surfing.
Kratos is BADASS in my opsion.He can easily RAPE Bayonetta!
agreed - i'd say kratos is the jimi hendricks of badass...... there's kratos........then there's the rest fighting it out for #2.
Just so you know its spelled Hendrix
Kratos killed Gods so that would make him stronger than everyone i dunno
Gordon Freeman is the most bad ass of all time....right after Alyx Vance.
Dante-comon how many times has this guybeen stabed and made it look like its nothing ( oh and he can kill gods as well)???? Kratos-can kill gods and escape hell like its a walk down central london. Virgil-just as badass as dante. Ryu- hes justtt cool with that outfit. -havent played boyonette even thought its under my shelf lol
Dante got shot in the head too... then caught the second bullet by the teeth. Kratos can die. DANTE MUST DIE but he doesnt. Dante has 3 girls (Trish, Lady and Lucia). 5 if you count Nero and Nero's girlfriend.
@ThanatosDMC priceless.... +bubbles
Superman is undeniably stronger than Batman, but Batman has proven to be the victor against Superman on several occasions.
Yet Goku rapes all of the above with just about no effort...
. Kratos - Mad Jack. Bayonetta - Sasha. Ryu - The cyborg ninja in Anarchy Reigns. I couldn't find Dante & Nero's similarity with the rest of characters though...
A Spartan God vs Funny Demon vs Dragon Ninja vs Hot Witch. Can't decide
Non of these. The most badass hero is Kazuma from yakuza
Wrong article for you. I love Yakuza and all but... no.
Vergil from devil May Cry 3 ... Dantes brorther ....
HAHA! Yes totally! Bubbles for you
is this a joke cuz Kratos would own all of them
how so ? He doesnt display any skills the dmc/bayonnetta lot doesnt have , and lack most of their powers and skills . He is just arguably maybe cooler , because he display an uncanny and raw brutality .
Because he is a god, and only kratos can kill himself LOL. Bias off, don''t know you or any nayer but kratos would surely own them all if we count the whole god of war universe in. He could simply destroy the earth and recreate it again, and yes, The scene ripping head can be pretty much used for every head out there lol.
Because he's a god..?
he's a god and ?? Bayonetta's whole silly plot is beating the crap of angels and divinity . Dante beat "gods" too and he basically a demon . It's just a label and status here . When all three frnchises eats godly beings for breakfast , you gotta have more arguments imo .. Again what skills has he displayed that was insurmountable for the witch and dante ? None . "kratos would surely own them all if we count the whole god of war universe in. " Whoever feature the others in his own universe would probably wins , because duh he'd be the hero
i agree with most of what you said but only kratos would come back time and time again even after being killed unless im mistaken, you cant say the same for the rest of them
@silvacrest bayonnetta don't care about time. she doesn't even care about entering the earth from orbit . witch TIME !! //Music starts// let's go boys !!!
@silvacrest That's a cheap copout . THeyd didnt come back from hell like him , because well they never died . That logic is a double edged sword in your argument anyway . It means that kratos died at the hand of foes from a level Bayonetta and Dante can easily handle , to begin with .
....at the same time lol
Kratos ofc. No competition there. He slays god after god like nothing.
Killing gods and titans is certainly a testament of strength, but that is not what makes him a badass. Killing the fates is what makes him a badass.
Kratos > Religions. lol. On a serious note, How would you kill Kratos? the guy's been killed several times and escapes hell to come and rape you. Then after your dead he will rape you in the after-life too.
hes the only one who would come back again and again after death, the rest would stay dead
Well they are the only two that dont die from such foes , easily beats having to come back from hell .
I can't comment on Ninja Gaiden because I have never played it but out of the others the order technically is: 1. Kratos 2. Bayonetta 3. Dante Why? Well Kratos fights Gods which are the highest tier of all the religious pantheons. Bayonetta fights angels which are servants of the gods, and thus considered less powerful. Dante on the the other hand predominantly fights demons. In Christianity (And I use Christianity because Dante's demons tend more towards Christian theology) demons are the servants of the devil, who himself was a fallen angel. Based on pantheon hierarchy: a gods-slayer > a angel-slayer > demon-slayer
But their Olympian "gods". They're lesser or equal to angels. The fact that you can kill those gods means you can kill Kratos. He did die but if the game stopped there, it'd be really lame.
I would agree with the argument that the god's of olympus were lesser gods compared to those of other religions, as they often had similar weaknesses and flaws to those of mortals. But angels were just conduits for the word of god. They never really have been attributed to have any powers of their own in the Bible, only in Films & Computer Games are they presented as badass heavenly warriors. ;)
Your hierarchy doesnt work . The foes from the other two franchise easily got the same level of power , if not bigger in their own respective universe . I dont care how he was refered to , MUndus as an example was a godlike being period . And Dante face demons and gods alive in Nocturne too for that matter . Who decided anyway those gods were more powerful than those christian angels and demons ? It's just an arbitrary distinction here based on just a title , for demon/angel foes that would wipe the floor with the olympians not named zeus , chronos or Ares , as an example .
My argument was purely based on theology not 'franchises'. Olympian gods were more powerful than those beings or deities of those games because people believed in them. And a deity is only as powerful as the amount of people that believe in it. My argument was slightly tongue in cheek. To question what game characters are the most powerful is the only real arbitrary distinction here. :D
Dante and Nero are lames. Ryu sucks while that Bayonetta aint nothing either. I liked Dante in the 1st game though. But as far as Kratos goes, he's ok.
Uh.... Bayonetta? Why?
Cause she's an ass kicker. That's why. Stop hatin'.
No she's not. Stop jerkin' it.
Alright, well... you didn't play the game. 'Cause if you did ( in it's entirety ) you would see that yes, she is indeed an ass kicker. Side note: You stay outta my pants and I'll stay outta yours. Deal?
dante, nero and vergil are awesome, so is ryu. bayonetta fights ok, shes ugly tho, and kratos....god of war was fun but honestly they made the gods freakin weak as apple sauce in that series because those are the weakest gods ive ever seen
kratos is the undisputed champion. in the world of computer games this spartan reigns supreme. 2 brutal
ultimate badass? king of all cosmos! http://firsthour.net/screen... NO ONE CAN BEAT THAT THING!
War from darksiders beats them all in terms of pure badassy of course. Because if he's here - it means that the apocalypse is coming and all of them are doomed already. Unless.... unless someone tricked him and the 7th seal was broken prematurely. NNOOOOOOOOOO!!!! http://www.halolz.com/wp-co...
I'd have to say all of them are all badass in their own respect. Do you seriously think they would all just be sitting around debating which one is better then said other? No they would all be slaughtering the countless angels / demons and send their sorry asses back to hell! At least thats my own two cents about it. I see why this topic keeps getting brought up. It's because a new Ninja Gaiden game was teased yesterday! And with that alone we are all at each others throats in debating which hack n slash *cough, cough* I got a better term from Yahtzee. "Spectral Fighter" is better. This same scenario happened once the first Bayonetta trailer came out. "Ohh shes a Dante knockoff", "Kratos would rape the hell out of her!", etc., etc. Overall I hope you see my point!
my 2 picks Kratos Ryu
Kratos and Dante will be the last 2 standing it would be a brutal fight but Kratos is the ultimate bad$ss
Where is Chuck Norris in all of this?
They trow the bait and everyone bytes. Omg so easy to manipulate.
You mean throw out the bait and everyone bites, bytes usually refers to computers. And like your any harder to manipulate if the correct topic is mentioned, might want to have your post flawless before you question other people's intelligence lvl genius.
well i am not perfect i just post my point of view. the thing with the bytes was a mistake because my nationality is other but i am glad that my English is not that broken believe me i have seen worst.
Kratos called... he says when you other little b****** KILL A FEW GODS, give him a call. He KILLED THE F****** GOD OF WAR AND TOOK HIS JOB!!!
