Nerding Out: Jump Force-Which Character Would Win in a Fight

Awaiting the release of Jump Force, a fighting game one can only hope and pray will become competitive, I thought it would be fun to review the announced character list. Not only do I hope to review it but I also want to nerd out a little bit and generate speculation as to who would actually win in a fight. I won’t be comparing each and every match because that would take too long and my observations will be based not only on lore but also on what the trailers have shown. I will also speculate who would win not only in a 1v1 tournament style bout but also a battle royale, the last man standing with all of the characters against each other. Let the games begin.

Now before you say Goku wins I need you all to stop for just a minute. DBZ fans are a bit salty after the whole Superman thing so I want to give them credit where credit is due before explaining a few wild cards that may give the Super Saiyan a run for his money. Goku is overpowered at his highest form. Although he may be god level in terms of brute strength, speed, and ability he’s also an idiot and could fall prey to deceptive tactics used by a large percentage of his opponents. Also, I want to mention that Goku, in the trailer, only powered up to Super Saiyan 1 when fighting Frieza and at his base form or even Super Saiyan 1, he could potentially be vulnerable to defeat. In other words, Goku is not an automatic win especially when we get into some of the other characters.

Two wild cards I think need to be addressed are Yugi Moto and Killua. If Yugi’s cards can fight for him then that could easily be a game changer. Imagine Dark Magician and Slifer the Sky Dragon in play here. That would be devastating on the battlefield. I was a little worried that Yugi would be one of the weakest players on the battlefield but this may shift the tide for me. Now, to preface what I’m about to say, I am a Hunter x Hunter fanboy. Be that as it may, I think it’s a bit unfair to put any of the main characters from that universe a game like this unless you give them certain stipulations. Most of the other protagonists in this character list have reached their full potential due to show cancellation or are approaching a level so powerful that it’s ridiculous. Both Killua and Gon are just getting started but even despite that, they have had a glimpse of ultimate power that if included could easily make them contenders.

SPOILERS AHEAD. I would pay any amount of money to see Gon at his full power level granted to him by his wish from Killua’s sister against Goku. Speaking of Killua’s sister, if she is implemented in any way then that raises Killua to god tier. He could simply pull a Thanos and with one wish make the entire roster not feel so good. Kuripaka doesn’t make sense because he can’t use his abilities on anyone but the Phantom Troupe and Hisoka could be like a less powerful but smarter Luffy which would be fun to watch.

In a 1v1 tournament-style battle, I would definitely give it to Goku hands down. I don’t see anyone else that could go to toe to toe with him for an extended period of time and if he gets knocked out Vegeta would be second on my list. The battle royale fight is where it gets interesting though.

I honestly think that Naruto could pull this off and trust me when I say that I don’t say those words lightly. Everyone would focus their attention on the DBZ characters because they are the most powerful. This would result in a blood bath in which I don’t think Goku, Vegeta, and Frieza are getting out of unscathed. A spirit gun blast could potentially kill Goku because as we’ve seen before he’s not immune to random gunfire so bear that in mind.

Some notable skirmishes would be the bleach crew specifically Ichigo versus Blackbeard, Zoro and Sanji which I’d probably give to Ichigo but barely, Luffy versus Hisoka because I think that would be hilarious, and fully powered Gon versus, at least, Vegeta if not Goku which I would give to Vegeta or Goku but barely. While all this fighting is going on Naruto and Sasuke would be hiding, waiting for the right time to strike. Because they are ninjas I give them the benefit of the doubt, if Goku and Vegeta are preoccupied, to be able to remain undetected. I honestly believe that a tired, worn out, Goku and Vegeta could potentially get bodied by a fully rested Naruto and Sasuke making them the winners. This scenario is only made possible if Killua doesn’t have access to his sister.

I am so curious to hear your scenarios of who would win. Post them below. Regardless of who you think is taking the biggest L, there is no doubt that this game is going to be a must grab so stay tuned and I’ll see you on the battlefield.
