Imagine your life is like one long acid trip, only you aren’t necessarily on any drugs. I don’t know if that’s what David Bowie’s life is like, but that’s what I always imagine it as. He is almost supernaturally odd – I don’t know if that’s just his stage persona or if he really is that weird. Vegeta is here to challenge him because everyone keeps requesting Vegeta to fight someone. I haven’t even thought about anything Dragonball Z related in years, so I’ll have to blow some dust off of my brain in order to get this one going. Either way, he beat…um…oh yeah, he beat Sean Connery a while back to land a seat in this section.

The Z Fighters are uber powerful anime characters from the extremely long series Dragonball Z, while the X-Men are a group of mutant superheroes from the extremely large franchise of the same name. Since both teams have too many members for me to care to write about, the fight will be narrowed down between the following eight contestants:
Vegeta versus Wolverine (again…and this time I won’t cop out of it like I did last time)
Krillin versus Professor Xavier
Gohan versus Rogue
Goku versus Cyclops
The fight will follow the same rules as the Knights of the Dinner Table versus the Fantastic Four battle that I did some time ago.
This video uses clips mostly from Dragonball Z, but also from Dragonball GT and the various movies based on those series. The song is “When I Grow Up” by Garbage. There were a couple glitches in putting the video together, but it turned out that said glitches actually timed well with the music, so it worked out nicely in the end.
This is one of the rare videos I’ve done that doesn’t stick to any one video source. The music is Frank Sinatra’s version of “Swing on a Star.” Video clips here are drawn from Bubblegum Crisis 2040, Dragonball Z, El Hazard, Ranma 1/2, Tenchi Muyo!, and Tenchi Universe. Despite the numerous sources, I think it works pretty well as a video, giving a survey of wacky and (mostly) similarly-themed anime.

In one corner we have the biggest, most powerful windbag of all time. Don’t get me wrong, I think that Frieza makes for a decent villain, but his freaking battle scenes and transformations make me sick. Who needs three goddamned weeks to fight a battle that was supposed to be five minutes? (End rant.) And then we have the dark lord and master of the galaxy. His powers with the Force make folks like Darth Vader and Obi Wan Kenobi looks small. We’re giving the Emperor the Death Star for use in this battle, since Frieza will most likely shrug off any other attack.
Yeah, I used to actually like Dragonball Z. The shows got some interesting elements to it, a fascinating examination of honor in combat, and some good character development. It’s a shame that it’s just so very long, though. Eventually, I gave up on the series because so little happens per episode. A fan edit of the series is supposedly out there that cuts out the filler and condenses the show, so maybe I’ll check that out sometime.
Anyway, this video is to Rob Zombie’s “Scum of the Earth.” It uses Dragonball Z, Dragonball GT, and several Dragonball Z movies for clips. Just click on the uber-powerful alien dictator to download the video.
Hailing from the destroyed planet Vegeta, formerly known as Kakarotto, and the first super sayajin in over a thousand years, we have Goku, the most powerful being in the entire universe of Dragonball Z. This fight is based after the Frieza saga, so Goku is capable of transforming into a super sayajin and has just taken vengeance upon Frieza for destroying his home planet. Also hailing from a dead planet, we have Kal-El, the last son of Krypton. He is no stranger to this page, having met with a narrow defeat at the hands of the Tick earlier on. Continue reading
