It's a battle of the three main video game mascots of the late 80's and the early 90's, Mario, Sonic, and Mega Man. Who will win this titanic battle worthy of Pay-Per-View?
Not trying to upset anyone...just stating fact. ^^;
I can't believe I've been reading this comic since the beginning!
So is this like the final page or something?
@Koren: Not just yet. ;)
Well, I guess it's cool that they all made up^^
I still say Megaman wins, if for no other reason than he can get hit multiple times without dying. Sonic gets hit without rings, and he dies. Mario gets hit without having one of his powerups, he dies.
Mega gets hit by an enemy, he blinks and then blasts the enemy.
The only thing I shall note that is interesting is that Sonic seems to be the only one who won't die immediately on contact with spikes. So long as he has rings anyways
@Kuragari: Small question pal, have any Megaman games been an RPG yet?
Mario and Sonic have both gone RPG before.
@Kuragari: sonic has Megaman's weakness: spikes.
@Hero of Comedy: Megaman X Command Mission. look it up.
i'm glad this comic had a story instead of a cliche tournament ending.
from the beginning i knew that this was going to be daniel's intention.
I agree there.
4th wall breaking, FTW!
That's...brutally honest. And unbelievably true.
Aw i grow up reading this comic! I'm gonna miss this. DHK? Are you still gonna make Specials for Halloween, Christmas etc.? Even though this is not the last page but still...
@Iwillbenapo: Megaman X =/= Megaman. Megaman X is a completely different robot, built by the same roboticist, but encapsulated for roughly a century.
So...this is it? We're done? Awwww.
@Hero of Comedy: what game was it with sonic
And so another one is coming to an end.
What is this, like 3 people who have actually finished their sprite comic on this site? Me, DHK and pmier747 right?
Has there been anyone else?
Make a sequel!!!!!!
I've said it countless times
@Iwillbenapo: If your talking about the games I think your talking about, as I recall it still doesn't take many hits for mario (or luigi/peach/or toad) to die.
Also, Sonic Battle was one game.
@Hero of Comedy: I take it you've never heard of Megaman X command mission?
true, its in a different part of the series, but if they made a classic MM rpg he'd have lots of health to. But then, so is any character in an RPG.
It also depends if you count the MM Battle Network series. Than yes, it has ventured into RPG.
The difference is that in every Megaman game, (save maybe that soccer one) Megaman has a health bar. Sonic and Mario however in their games don't get this. In Sonic, if you have no rings and touch a baddy or spikes, you die. In mario, if you don't have a powerup, you die.
I'm not saying that Megaman is better. I like all three series. I'm just saying that megaman will last longer than either of them.
@supersonicfan0: As far as I can tell, Sonic can touch the spikes and live if he has rings. He gets hurt and loses a bunch of rings. If he doesn't have any though, then he dies.
@Kuragari: If Megaman touches spikes, he dies instantly. so if Sonic has spikes on him...
I should be irked...
But I'm so used to cop out endings at this point, it's whatever.
Most of them, I'm happy about. This one is meh but whatevs.
Wait, that's it? No! It can't be it! I NEED MOAR!
@Kuragari: Eh, that'd probably only happen if Megaman had his cheatingful Robot Master weapons (which he did here, but everyone else had other stuff too so eh...) that Light takes out after every game. If they were all in base form, I'd give Sonic credit to beat him. MAYBE Mario, but that's a big maybe.
The people who are saying it's a cop out is only because their favourite character didn't win XD
But I will always say this:
Sonic > Megaman > Mario
Mega Man has had an RPG. Classic Mega Man. More than one in fact. Japan only, and not that great.
One of which Keiji Inafune even apologized for and regrets.
Later Mega Man games have incorporated abilities where Mega Man can touch spikes once without dying.
I wouldn't judge them based on the games though. Cause if we're really gonna do that, Mario and Sonic have a huge advantage that mega could easily get in on through Smash bros. There they can take as many hits as they want provided they can stay on the stage and based on the locations here, there are no barriers meaning they couldn't die. Rate em based on their ability, not game mechanics that wouldn't exist in real life.
Also wow, same as Afrohawk, I'm shocked somebody else is ending their comic. It makes me happy, since if there's any major turn offs for me and comics, it's going on forever and ever. Stories need a conclusion, and when they go on for the sake of going on, I flat out grow to lose intrest and sometimes respect(when they do it simply to cash in on getting more fans and what not).
I started reading this about a month ago, hoping to catch up to the epic ending.
NOT THIS COP-OUT!!!!! >:(
Now that I've gotten that off my chest, DON'T YOU DARE STOP MAKING DA COMIX!!
C'mon, Don't tell me it's gonna end, let me end this comic: all of them sucks, end story :D
Nononono,it can't end like this and so soon! Oh well,it was a great comic,with all those fights and all.Pity there was no winner.
Erm, I don't know where you heard that but Mega's buster isn't solar powered.
Otherwise he couldn't use it in the night stages.(he wouldn't be able to use it where they stand!)
What are you hiding Pacman?
That is all.
So this is it huh? After four almost five years your just gonna end it? I guess all good things must come to an end but listen to this:Nintendo rocks, Mario Sucks. Sega sucks, Sonic rocks. Capcom rocks, megaman sucks. Sonic would bet them all.
There right on who's the best or not. It's nothing to fight over Right. I even do little sonic empressions but, i don't reject any of them. It's nothing to fight over they are all the best and you can't judge them by there powers. but, if i was doing the comic i would make it a tie.
Well, I hope that either something - or someONE - will cause the battle to be renewed, or that the ending leads onto your next project.
Now we start a riot! Lets go!
@supersonicfan0: only if their sharpened to the microscopic point.
As Hyro VI says, only special kinds of spike traps kill Mega Man instantly (either molecularly sharpened or charged with massive amounts of power). These type of spike traps would also kill Sonic, Mario, and just about anybody else instantly.
Mega Man survives normal spikes or spines just fine. Touching Sonic's quills would do little to him.
@Metalchaos0: nope there is a bit left
Geez, I really expected Sonic to win. This is a great ending and a great troll.
@Kuragari ever heard of game mechanics?
personally i think this is the most cliched, "Oh no! the bad guys had an another motive, let's all team up together to take this threat down."
