"I'm Yah-Shee and he's Arrell, and it's our job to analyze their weapons, armour, and skills to find out who would win an Equestrian Death Battle."

This story takes the concept of Death Battle and carries it over into Equestria, pitting different ponies and other Equestrian creatures against each other in one-on-one fights to the death to see which is superior. Extensive research is done on both combatants to figure out who would win, and is presented as a written battle to be more entertaining.

Readers are asked to suggest possibilities for battles in the comments, or by messaging me. You are allowed to suggest OC characters, as long as they are from a story that is at least somewhat well-known.

"But for now, it's time for an Equestrian Death Battle!"

Now THIS, I LIKE!!

#2 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

Definitely deserves the 'Random' tag. :rainbowlaugh:

Didn't think I'd see anything like this. Ever.

Also, they already did a death battle with Rainbow Dash vs. Starscream, so probably something to keep in mind.

#3 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · 1 · ·

>>611668 I'm aware, don't worry. That episode was actually the main inspiration for this series. Only real problem is trying to avoid looking like I'm copying their research word-for-word when Rainbow Dash gets involved in a battle. :rainbowlaugh:

#4 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

Derpy Vs DJ Pon3, A BATTLE OF OVERRATED BACKROUND PONIES!!!

#5 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

>>611676

Yeah, definitely. Good luck with that.:twilightsmile:

#6 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

im already loving this idea but its way more fun to read the red parts in Boomstick's voice :rainbowlaugh:

#7 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

A few suggestions:

Iron Will VS Roid Rage

Spitfire VS Soarin'

Luna VS Celestia (Yeah...I went there.)

Cheerilee VS DR whooves

#8 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

>>611692 I do the same. :rainbowlaugh:

#9 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

A Manticore Vs. Derpy's magical item dropping.

#10 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·
#11 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

Celestia vs Luna! i demand this!

#12 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

Twilight Sparkle vs Lance Greenfield from the fic Living the Dream.

#13 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

or celestia vs nightmare moon

#14 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·
#15 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

Little note here:

If I see a matchup that I don't think would work too well, I may use one of the characters in a different battle against a separate opponent. I will likely not do this often, but I'm just saying it now in case I do in the future. I'll be adding it as a note to the next chapter, so people who don't read the comments will still know.

Again, this won't happen often, if ever. This is just a "just-in-case" thing, sort of like how people purchase a fire ladder in case their house catches fire, even though it's very unlikely to happen and may end up never happening.

#16 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

Nighmare Moon vs. Chrysalis

#17 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

Wow, now THIS is an awesome idea! The first battle is really well written too, so you definitely earn my praise. :raritystarry:

As for different battles, how about:

Big Macintosh vs Iron Will (Big Mac is laid back while Iron Will is assertive, but they both have extreme physical strength)

Twilight Sparkle vs Pinkie Pie (she may be the smartest and most talentet unicorn in Equestria, but is it enough for Twilight to combat the avatar of randomness herself?)

Nightmare Moon vs Discord vs Queen Chrysalis (the three main antagonists facing off, but you can just choose two of them if you want it to be one-on-one)

My own fanfic, Friendship is Aura, isn't that popular right now. Otherwise it would've been awesome if my Lucario character from it could one day star here. But for now, keep up the great work! :pinkiehappy:

#18 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 21h ago · · ·

>>611802 I like all of those ideas! :pinkiehappy: Don't know if I'll use all of them, but I'll eventually use at least one.

And your story doesn't have to be super-popular. :rainbowlaugh: I checked your story, and it has over 5k total views, with over 1k views for a single chapter. I consider that "reasonably well-known", though I would still prefer to not use Lucario, since he's not a pony or OC. :twilightsheepish: Sorry.

#19 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 20h ago · · ·

>>611839 Haha, yeah, I see what you mean. Lucario is a bit of a stretch being a crossover character. But I'm glad to see that you like my ideas. :pinkiehappy:

No need to tell me which one of them that you're planning to use. It'll be a good surprise for me. :twilightsmile:

#20 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 20h ago · · ·

Discorded Spike (relevant to the plot more often and the actual bad ass dragon Spike deserves to be) vs Celestia (who has lost every fight she's been involved in since the begging of the series).

:moustache: VS :trollestia: FIGHT!

#21 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 20h ago · · ·

Griffin the griffin vs Echo the Diamond Dog. :moustache::trollestia:

t'would be most epic:rainbowdetermined2:

#22 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 20h ago · · ·

>>611944 Haven't actually read those fics yet...been meaning to though. :twilightsheepish: Definitely gonna consider this fight if I can get enough info from the fics.

#23 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 20h ago · · ·

Disarray from The Ballad of Echo The Diamond Dog VS Anarchy from Living the Dream and Three of Me: School Society.

Also, I LOVE this dea, and am ready to see more.

#24 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 19h ago · · ·

OOOOOOOHHHH I FIGURED IT OUT!!! OCTAVIA VS DJ PON3!!!!

#25 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 19h ago · · ·

>>612231 Background ponies are somewhat hard to write battles for. :rainbowlaugh: When I write battles including background ponies, I'll use information based off of the most common fan interpretation of them, which might not please some people. :twilightsheepish: For example, a lot of people consider Derpy to be a clumsy mailmare with Dinky as a child, but is still intelligent and normal aside from her clumsiness. Therefore, if I make a battle involving her, that is how I will portray her.

#26 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 18h ago · · ·

i want to see a 3 way battle with :scootangel: vs. :applecry: vs. :unsuresweetie:

#27 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 18h ago · · ·

Oh, sweet.  A parody of my parody!

:rainbowdetermined2:

Parodyception!

I like it.

#28 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 18h ago · · ·

>>612733 ...whoops, didn't know you were already doing something like this. :twilightsheepish: Sorry about that. :rainbowlaugh:

#29 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 17h ago · · ·

>>612740

S'okay. :pinkiesmile:

Lots of creative ideas take pre-existing ideas and rearrange them into something new.

From what I've seen so far, you've got an awesome formula of events flowing.

Good luck to you in the future.

#30 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 17h ago · · ·

>>612785 Thanks! Same to you! :twilightsmile:

#31 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 17h ago · · ·

I had imagined this originally was going to be a cliche. But I am impressed! I look forward to the next battle as well as to suggest a matchup of my own: Chrysalis vs. Discord! They have always said those two are perfect for each other, and now we could possibly WATCH THEM FIGHT TO THE DEEEATH!!!... So please consider!

#32 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 17h ago · · ·

How about the 3 Diamond Dogs vs Garble? (He's the red teenage dragon)

???
#33 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

your kidding right...trixie can only summon one cloud....the hell is this?

#34 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

>>613045 It was never stated that she could only summon one cloud, so it would make sense that she could summon several.

#35 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

Wow, I got this idea but it looks like you released it before me.:twilightblush: I'll delete it if you wish. But this one has a concept where there's a tourney and not only creatures in Equestria.

#36 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

>>613117 You can still make your story. I'm not exactly the almighty ruler over what people get to make. :rainbowlaugh:

#37 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

>>612039

Just wait... that chapter is coming.

#38 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

>>613130 But people would think I'm copying you.:twilightblush:

#39 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

>>613161 Not neccessarily. :twilightsmile:

#40 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

>>613130:twilightblush: Anyways, you have four times as many followers as me.

#41 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 16h ago · · ·

>>613176 The amount of followers you have doesn't matter. All that matters is that you enjoy what you do. If the story you want to write is fun for you, then write it, and if people accuse you of copying me then I'll step in. :twilightsmile:

#42 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 13h ago · · ·

discord vs chrysalis and her changeling army

#43 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 13h ago · · ·

Spot rover and Fido the diamond dogs vs the teenage dragons Garble and the other two

#44 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 13h ago · · ·

Good job man!:pinkiehappy: don't know were the 2 dislikes came from.

make sure to keep the two fighters ironic or have some connection and you'll make this successful!

My picks:

-Big Mac VS Shining Armour. It would be a BBBTTD(Big brother battle to the Death)

-AppleJack VS Rainbow Dash. I think your already doing this but i still back the motion.

-Rainbow Dash VS MurderShy (from the .Mov series http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cH-yA8U2XgI)

-R-dash 5000 (also from .Mov http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGFIumhNiM0&feature=relmfu) VS Celestia/luna/anyone powerful. This would be interesting.

- The elements of harmony (mane 6) VS The Helements of Armoury (.Mov mane6). I like the .mov series...:twilightsheepish:

signed Taber

#45 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 11h ago · · ·

THIS. IS. PURE. GENIUS!

My ideas for Death Battle:

Hydra (Feeling Pinkie Keen) Vs. Red Dragon (Dragonshy)

Shining Armour Vs. Prince Blueblood

Queen Chrysalis Vs. Discord

#46 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 7h ago · · ·

:twilightsmile:vs.:ajsmug:vs.:rainbowkiss:vs.:raritystarry:vs.:flutterrage:vs.:pinkiehappy: We've been wondering which of these ponies is best pony. I think, this will finally answer that.

#47 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 6h ago · · ·

These are all the fights I'm thinking of.

Celestia vs Luna

Griffin the Griffin vs Echo the Diamond Dog

Nightmare Moon vs Discord

Cadance vs Chrysalis

Fluttershy vs Iron Will

Twilight Sparkle vs Trixie

A three way battle between the CMC

And Shinning Armor vs Mare Do Well

Law
#48 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 5h ago · · ·

Ahuitzotl vs. Mare-do-well

The Griffon Pirates (Griffon the griffon)  vs. Echo's Crew (Echo the diamond dog)

This was very well done and I quite enjoyed it, I suspect it can only get better and better.

#49 · Chapter 1 · 122w, 4h ago · · ·
