Battle Stadium D.O.N.

By Spencer . July 31, 2006 . 5:58pm

Crossover fighting games are all the rage so its no surprise that Eighting jumped on a chance to make a fighting game with Dragonball Z, One Piece and Naruto. Eighting has had a long history creating the Naruto: Geiktou Ninja Taisen (aka Clash of Ninja) series on the Gamecube and the Zatch Bell games. Instead of going for a traditional arena combat game like their other titles, Battle Stadium D.O.N. is more comparable to Super Smash Brothers. If you add up Eighting’s talent, the popular license and a gameplay style that many people still love Battle Stadium D.O.N. should be a sure fire hit right?

Purchase at Play-Asia

 

Then again maybe not. Battle Stadium D.O.N. doesn’t just borrow gameplay from Super Smash Brothers, it is Super Smash Brothers with anime characters and minor changes. Players start off battles by picking their favorite anime avatar and then you’re placed into an arena with up to three other characters for a battle royale. You can do a basic string of attacks with the B button, but to do all of the signature moves like the Kamehameha and barrage of lions you have to press the Y button. Using special attacks like Zoro’s Tatsumaki expends a little bit of your battle gauge, which limits how often players can use special attacks. Finally pressing the X button does a character’s ultimate move like Goku’s Spirit Bomb or Naruto’s Rasengan. Using a super move requires players to stock up ¾ of the bar before they can execute a special attack. Where the game deviates from other fighting games is with its tug of war life system. Every time a character gets hit they release red life orbs. The attacking player automatically gains some of these orbs by attacking. If a player runs out of orbs they get to keep playing until one other combatant snags orbs from the remaining fighters. When a fighter manages to obtain the majority of orbs on the battlefield they begin to glow and enter “burst” mode. In burst mode the character deals more powerful attacks and can make an easy victory for a player. However, there is sort of a balance issue with burst mode. Since a character can only be in burst mode when they have nearly all of the orbs, it leaves less room for a balanced fight or comeback.

 

Battle Stadium D.O.N. has an item system to make gameplay more random than just basic combat. Dropped in levels are items like Zabuza’s sword, Goku’s pole and bombs to attack with. There are also stat boosting items like speed up and big which makes your character grow to twice their size. Some battlefields are basic arenas like Naruto’s ramen shop and Luffy’s pirate ship. Others are more interactive such as the Forest of Death battlegrounds. In the Forest of Death players have to fight against combatants while moving forward on the side scrolling map. Placed on screen are traps like a flying log, spiked floors and occasionally a snake that attacks from the left side of the screen. Another stage s has players climb a giant beanstalk in the sky while fighting and lastly there is a Dragonball Z stage set on the Planet Namek while the planet is under destruction.

 

So just who is in Battle Stadium D.O.N.? When you begin the game players can pick from Naruto, Sasuke, Kakashi, Sakura, Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Piccolo, Luffy, Zoro, Chopper and Sanji. There are more characters to unlock like Gaara, Nami, and Cell which you can get from playing the single player adventure mode. In one player battle mode missions will occasionally come up where you have to win under a certain time limit, get a couple of ring outs or win with a full battle gauge. If you win the fight and the mission goal you will gain coins to use in a slot machine after the final fight with Cell. If you get match up three of the pirate icons the slot machine will go into a special mode where you can unlock a character by selecting three of the blank Polaroid pictures. The unlocking process is rather tedious compared to other fighting games. Along the way you can earn tickets to alter gameplay in Hachi Machi battle.

 

Battle Stadium D.O.N. has decent graphics, easy to pick up gameplay and if you have a Gamecube four player simultaneous combat. It also has all of the standard modes like the single player battle system, survival mode and practice. However, if you’re not a huge anime/manga fan you probably won’t enjoy Battle Stadium D.O.N. that much. Instead of trying to offer a different experience, Battle Stadium D.O.N. sticks too much to the basics, which makes it come off as derivative instead of distinguished.

 

Import Friendly? Literacy Level: 1

Jumping into combat is cake and the controls are easy to pick up. One of the major problems for importers is learning the game’s single player “goals” where you can rack up coins for the slot machine. The goals are random and are in Japanese, which can make earning coins a little more difficult.

 

US Bound?

With new consoles on the horizon and licensing issues between a few companies it makes it unlikely that Battle Stadium D.O.N. will make it to North America.

 

+ Pros: A handful of popular Shounen Jump characters packed into a Smash Brothers style fighting game. Also if you’re playing the Gamecube version you’ve got four player support.

 

- Cons: A lack of depth to the single player mode and unlocking characters is more painful an experience than it should be.

 

Overall: Battle Stadium D.O.N. knows its target audience well, young gamers who love the three Shounen Jump series and Smash Brothers. Even though it delivers exactly what it promises something in the anime mash up fighting game is missing. Perhaps it is the oversimplified fighting system or it relies too much on the stars to pull the weight of the game. In either case gamers who aren’t heavily into Naruto, One Piece and Dragonball won’t get the most out of the title.

  • Jedibound

    it felt like this game was rushed

  • Anorhc

    When a character goes into “Burst” mode, they could be easily attacked with a close range special move (Y button). When that happens, the character loses about half of their life orbs to scatter all over the screen.

    I could only imagine that this was made to keep the game balance in check.

  • EvilGamerX

    I don’t think the game is that bad, but yes, improvements can be made.

    “In either case gamers who aren’t heavily into Naruto, One Piece and Dragonball won’t get the most out of the title.”
    Actually, even people who don’t watch the series, DO enjoy the game. I have friends like this, so I know.

    Also, when I set it to 4players and no time limit, matches can last a damn good while and we all (the friends I play with and myself) get much enjoyment from those kinds of matches.

  • db

    they should ass bleach to the sequel…we know there is going to be another.

  • ZETSUEI

    Anyone know if japanese gamecube games compatiable with a an american gamecube?

  • http://- dash

    The game is made just a WAY too simple, it looks like it was aimed at 7yo kids.

    Considering how much developers could have done from all 3 anime/manga series and how little they made from it…its really dissapointing.
    In single player one can beat the game just by bashing one attack button :/

    Another big dissapointment after recent Super Dragon Ball Z game. :(

  • big anime fan

    ZETSUEI , you wil be needing a freeloader to play the game on a non-japanese gamecube…
    you can probably import it on the same site where you import the game…

    This game Rocks!!! but its very hard to get the secret char… Rock Lee is the best!!
    LONG LIVE PLATSTION 2!! Best console ever

  • http://www.dfdfdsds.com Corbin

    I think this game is kinda an insult to Goku, because we all know that Goku could piss on Naruto and that would end the fight right there, leaving Goku victorious. But this is an awesome idea and I can’t wait to play it.

  • http://siliconera.com Naruto fan

    This game is…AWESOME!!!Naruto is the greatest show in the world!I also like dbz and I think one piece is ok.Naruto Kakashi and Rock lee are so cool!It has to come to america or the universe will explode!(just kidding:).But I really think it’s the coolest video game ever…but Corbin I kidda think your wrong.I mean it’s not like Goku’s weak or anything, but Naruto has an amazing amount of stamana and chakra,andand a 9 tailed fox deamon and could beat Goku with no problem Sasuke could beat Gohan , Kakashi could beat Trunks with one hand tied behind his back and Rock lee could beat Piccolo really fast,and if they were all fighting majin buuthey would win in seconds.But this game should come to amirica(and canada)no matter what. …NARUTO RULES :)

  • Goku avenger

    youre an idiot goku could beat the entire naruto universe with one hand. and how can rock lee beat piccilo if he cant even beat gara. naruto cool and all nut comparing him to goku is like putting a roach to pit bull. Man krillian could beat naruto. Youre an idiot for saying that and you should be castrated.

  • http://siliconera.com batman27

    goku avenger…I agree with narutofan.No way in a million years could goku beat NARUTO.BELIEVE IT!:) I mean no one can beat naruto kakashi sasuke sakura or lee.O and before I forget I don’t think that u should be hurting other peoples feelings because u think thire wrong, your a jerk!i mean narutofan he or she is just saying how he or she feels and u need to exept that fact.Also just so u no Masashi Kishimoto the crator of naruto grew up loveing dragon ball and he was inspiered by that 2 mack his own manga.I mean just look at naruto and goku! they both dress in orange!Get the connection? Naruto is to put simply a new and better generation of dragon ball,I just thought u shoud no.But besid that,Kakashi is my favoret caracter because he is very cool an he can beat anyone,INCLUDING dbz people!But I think that goku avenger was kide of meanand i think he is reely wrong!GO NARUTO!

  • NarutoAndDbz

    Look im a naruto lover and dbz fan, i love em both but seriously stop comparing dbz with naruto please. Think about it can naruto blow up the earth? You already know the outcome of them both colliding with each other, but like i said they both my fav shows and yes this game could have had more people like um….. Inuyasha, or more attack moves or somethin. But like i said both shows rock and i have nothing against Naruto but Dbz would pawn them. I honestly feel bad for sayin this -_-

  • http://siliconera.com Naruto fan

    thanku batman…and naruto and dbz i kindof agree with u i mean it kinda depends on the state pf power there both in i mean in my opinion if naruto and goku fought in normal power i dont no who wood win if it was naruto useing the foxs power agenst goku in super sylean i think naruto wood win and if it was just the huge deamon i think it could deatroy the world. but i respect ur opinion.

  • http://siliconera.com batman27

    im sorry naruto and dbz but i need 2 do this…ANYONE WHO READS THIS TELL US WHO U THINK WOULD WIN BETWEEN NARUTO AND GOKU CONSIDER THE FACK THAT GOKU HAS SYLION POWERS AND NARUTO HAS DEAMON POWERS TELL US WHO U THINK WULD WIN thank u

  • Selka

    Let’s just say that the Naruto series kept the power level of their characters in check, Dragonball did not. It’s not worth comparing their strength in terms of their anime world, because they are not in the same tier. A game developer should spend some time putting together a game like this with some detail and a difficulty that will allow younger and older players to get a lot out of the game. I’m just really tired of these half-assed attempts.

  • dbz rules

    wtf aint nothin wrong with naruto but still yall must be drunk goku would kill every one in naruto wit one finger and goku would kick narutos ass with that gay fox or not.

  • goku_fan

    okay all yall nerduto (naruto) fans when have you ever seen naruto destroy a giant mountian hmmm…. exactly so just shut up about naruto even touching goku nevertheless beating him cause yer pissin me off DBZ RULES!!!! p.s. chibi trunks beat 9-tailed fox nerduto hes an idiot steppin’ in some dog sh** .

  • Slasher-X

    Selka’s right. There’s no possible way to compare Naruto and DBZ. I mean were talking about two completely different worlds here. Putting that aside I am quite curious if I would enjoy this game being a Shounen Jump fan myself.

  • Travis

    So goku can obliterate naruto, who knows. question i want answered is…who’s better luffy or goku (yes luffy can send ebergy blasts back at an opponent) oh, and this game is still fun even though it has mainly SMB elements. this allows you to play with characters that are obviously never gonna be ina SMB’s game ever.

  • jabberwocky

    This game couldve worked. It couldve been awesome. Overall, the gameplay, although simple, is somewhat fun. The thing is that so many details hamper it so mcuh that it makes it annoying.

    If they have a way to fix that on a possible sequel, it’d be great. Like this “Burst” thing. It just seems like a silly addition to make the game flashier.

  • http://siliconera.com kakashi12

    All of u just shut up!Naruto could beat goku and i can prove it!Belive it!just go 2 utube and type in battle statium don and see that naruto is 10 times better!he could take down goku and luffy!Man Sakura can take down luffy cause he stinks!!!And kakashi could take down anyone with 1 hand tide behind his back because he’s awesome and he’s way better then goku!!!goku stinks!!!naruto is the greatest show in the world!BELIEVE IT!!!!!

  • http://siliconera.com sasuke kun2

    yeah hes right

  • http://siliconera.com chatterbox12

    i think aruto would win but i’m getting tired of reading the same thing every day without saing anything…look i like naruto and dbz allot and it’s realy starting 2 bug me that u keep comparing them.i read shonen jump and it said out of the hundreds of manga they have in japan that r still being continued(dbz isn’t there cause it’s finished)naruto placed #10 and when dbz was still in the catagory it got#10(im not sure about 1 piese)so can we just agree that out of all the allian fighting shows dbz is the best and out of all the ninja shows naruto is the best?i mean i don’t no who would win but just so all of u no naruto actually came from dbz dragon ball was the first anime masashi kishimoto (the creator of naruto) ever watched and it made him want to make his own i mean look at them they both where orange and both of them are great heros who are both adodred by japan and the world.so please stop compareing them.

    but it is just the truth.

  • naruto vs dbz

    lets see… i like naruto alot, but goku can win against him because he can blow up a mountain with a ki blast even without super saiyan, easy. Naruto, on the other had, is nothing without the fox. goku beat cell, buu, freiza, omega shenron, picollo, vegeta, pretty much everyone. if naruto tried to hit goku, goku would just teleport or something.

    Goku=fly naruto=cant

  • Kronos

    i mean even tho goku can fly naruto has a gigantic frog on his side ….with a sword…and he can spit oil at goku…and eat the spirit bomb (probably not)…and pit more oil at goku…

  • the one

    heh if naruto had no nine tailed fox in him or he couldnt release it, he would be nothin
    not even a tad pole would be summond.
    goku doesnt even have to use super sayian.

  • hmmmm

    goku>nartuo

  • Huh!?!

    yes i agree goku eats naruto

  • Naruto is not that good

    Oi, if you’re going to make an argument, at least take the time to spell words correctly. Or even if not correctly, spell them fully (none of this ‘u’ crap) and use SOME sort of punctuation to know when a thought ends or begins.

    Although it’s unfair to compare two anime characters who are from completely different worlds and such, I have to agree that if Goku and Naruto were to fight, Goku would win. Undoubtedly.
    I actually think Luffy could beat Naruto, really, seeing as physical attacks aren’t very effective against him. Even if Naruto had kunai, Luffy would probably win.

  • e-rock

    Hmm, well I think it’s pretty obvious who would win.
    I mean come on. Nothing against naruto but i’m pretty sure goku at his weakest lvl could beat naruto easy.
    And all this talk about his demon power or whatever? lol give me a break.
    Naruto couldn’t even beat a lot of people.
    Goku? I an only recall a few…
    Brolly? cell? buu?

    ahem
    super saiyan 4 gogeta > naruto full power demon thing

    Everyone arguing about DBZ vs. Nartuo-

    Shut the hell up. They’re completely different shows. There is no way to compare either. Arguing about something you know nothing about just reinforces the stereotype that anime fans are a bunch of otaku.

  • Zeelox

    I’m not sure if this would work, but I know that you can download games from utorrent.com try that and burn the game onto a disk. I hope it works since I’m from America

  • http://siliconera.com chatterbox12

    thats ileagal u no

  • Nykoladd

    Look everyone, it’s all fun and fine to wonder who would win in a dream match clash, but this argument was going on from since people wondered about Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter or Killer Instinct vs Mortal Kombat. I agree with the guys before you can’t compare one set of characters to another set. Each universe is set different and has it’s own set of rules governing battles. For example the only major destruction I’ve seen in Naruto has been Tsunade destroying the castle wall with a backhand punch. That’s like trying to compare Zangief to Potemkin or Paul Phoenix to Ryu.
    W ith all of that said let’s just agree that the main characters are the equivalent of their counterparts in each universe, i.e. Naruto is the Goku of his universe and so on. The purpose of a cross over game is to allow people to play their favorite characters all in one game. Think about the MVC series. Everyone knows Wolverine tears shreds out of anyone in reality (funny calling it reality when these stories are all fantasy) and Spiderman goads people until they make a mistake and Hulk just is improbable to beat. Yet ordinary humans can defeat the Marvel characters as long as their player is good at THE GAME! Please let this argument die, it’s a bit perturbing.
    Anyway, as for the game itself, I’ve had a chance to play it and although I’m not a fan of Naruto or Dragon Ball Z games, I find this one highly addicted (read that as crack addict level). It’s loads of fun with four players especially when time is almost up and everyone pulls a power move in a last ditch attempt to get that extra damage. It’s a good time waster that anyone can pick up with ease. It’s unbalanced yes, but so is Smash Brothers to a point.

    I am usually above this but I’ll make an exception this one time. Just because I am educated and am open minded and critical thinking, and actually exhibit correct grammer and spelling techniques I have written a book haven’t I? Well maybe you need to read more of those said books and become educated yourself instead of wasting your life away in front of video games. If you had understood what I said or exhibited the clarity of mind to even consider attempting to do so, then you would have realised that I said I don’t fancy individual franchise titles, but because this is different to what each franchise normally offers, I find it very addictive. It’s an excellent party game and each character is different enough that you’ll spend a while finding one you like and even more time trying to master them. Find three friends, a multitap and somewhere you can’t be interrupted and you are bound to have a good time.

  • The only intelligent being in this place…

    Listen, all of you… This isn’t a forum for noobs who argue about things they don’t understand, its a place to comment about a product. For one thing, Goku can move at supersonic speeds, and he can quite literally lift mountains. Naruto, however, isn’t MEANT to be an incredible powerhouse, he’s supposed to be flawed and an average ninja, who occasionally gets stronger through the influence of a demon fox. If you would simply watch Naruto and Dragon ball (the series, not the show in particular), then it would be pretty obvious that goku is designed to be more powerful, and COULD defeat naruto. None of naruto’s abilities parallel goku’s, seeing as the lcosest thing he has to any energy-projectile attacks is the rasengan, and thats bound. The rasengan is ONLY considered devastating in the Naruto world because there’s nothing else like it, because ninja in Naruto arent designed for the capability of energy battles. People in the Dragon Ball world, on the other hand, are completely meant to discharge large amounts of energy at will. Naruto isn’t fast nor is he strong when you compare him to other anime, and he isnt intelligent. I love Naruto, but if you just look at the varying physics in the two worlds, its obvious that Goku would win… You can deny this if you really want, but all the arguments I’ve read here are unfounded, and they are tacit assumptions made by fans, all of which are probably under the age of 12. Stop posting here to argue about who could win, and PLEASE only post if you have purchased this product and would like to review it. There are people who would really want to know if this product is good or not, so this dealer can earn money by selling it, which they’ll only do if someone buys it, which they’ll only do if they know its a good deal. If they see a page lined with spam about a flaming argument, then they will have no idea what they should do.

  • Another intelligent being…

    This game seems…interesting. The debate less so. In addition to other views already posted, here is one little piece of information for those with naruto. Goku can just blow up the planet and then teleport to another. Naruto can’t teleport, and neither can he breathe in space without air. In addition, if it came to a team fight, the naruto team would easily lose. All the protagonists in Dragonball Z can fly (except Hercule :/), and so while they are injured, they can just fly up to dende for him to heal them. On the other hand, tsunade and sakura have to stay in place for awhile in order to heal others. And, if worst comes to worst for the Z fighters, they can just blow the planet up and have Goku teleport them away :).

  • Another intelligent being…

    Oh yes, I forgot to put in Dragonball Z versus One Piece. Again, since almost all of the Z fighters can fly, they would go out reach of Luffy’s crew, though not out of reach of Luffy. However, any of them could just carry him out to sea and Luffy would be done for. Also, for another piece of information to you “Naruto is more powerfu than DBZ” fans, is that most of the Z fighters, when powering up, have rocks and pieces of the landscape fly up, toward, or away from them. In Naruto, almost the only things flying around is chakra while they are powering up. That kinda says something about the powereng charged up, eh?

  • Another intelligent being…

    Chatterbox12, try spelling names right if you want to prove your point. In any case, you are just saying what you THINK would happen, without any proof for your (erroneous) assumption about the battle. In addition, for another point, both Luffy and Goku are invulnerable to gunshots, but Naruto isn’t. At their weakest moments, Luffy and Naruto would probably get killed with a shot to the head (before Luffy eats the Rubber fruit), but as we see in the first episode of Dragon Ball, Goku gets only a little hurt from multiple shots.

  • Another intelligent being…

    Oh yes, for all of you who think that Naruto with the demon fox’s power would beat anyone, here’s a newsflash for you. The demon fox, by itself, was feared in the Naruto world because it left a path of destruction wherever it went. It did NOT blow up the world. Also, that was when it was by itself, not limited in Naruto’s body. Still, I have to give Naruto some points. If he didn’t have the fox, he could probably do good ninjustu and so on, because his control over his chakra is only unstable due to the fox’s presence. A portion of his (the blue) chakra is keeping the fox’s chakra in check; when he only draws on the fox’s (the red) chakra, he has very good control over it. This is seen as he needs a clone to form the rasengan when on his own power, but with the fox’s power he can do it one-handed.

  • naruto

    sasuke would dominate vageta with his chidori

  • naruto

    what do you think about ss gohan vs itachi uchiha

  • Another intelligent being…

    Another note to the relative powers of the animes: at the end of DBZ, Pan (the weakest of the part-saiyans) could fly around the world in less than 10 minutes. It takes even the fastest ninja in Naruto to take at least 2 days to go from the Leaf Village to the Sand Village (as talked about in Shippuuden). As for One Piece, the fastest vehicle they have is the Wave Runner, and the crew runs pretty slowly on the ground as well. The reason this is important in because the greater the agility, the easier it is for the person to dodge attacks.

    P.S. I check this conversation daily, so if anyone wants to chip in, please do. But still, if you have a different opinion, please support it with factual content from anime/manga.

  • Another intelligent being…

    Naruto13, please leave EVIDENCE of your opinion. To refute your statement, most if not all of the Z fighters (discounting Hercule) can simply “blow” away their opponents using their energy. In the 4-tailed fox form, the fired ball/beam of chakra seems very similar to a kamehameha mixed with Nappa’s Eraser Gun. What I’m saying, is that Goku could probably defeat Naruto AND Kakashi with both arms tied behind his back with his eyes closed.

  • Dead_SHikashi

    WOW can you believe how many ignorant fools waste their time here arguing about Naruto and DBZ? “Nykoladd” and the “intellegent beings” seem to be the only mature people Posting here.

    All I was wondering is if Uchiha Itachi can be unlocked in this game? and If so, Can he use Amaterasu?

    If not then this game is not worth my time.

  • Another intelligent being…

    Thank you Dead_SHikashi.

    Apparently, as I have seen in multiple videos from various sites, Battle Stadium D.O.N. does not have all the characters from the animes, and seems to only have the earlier characters from One Piece and Naruto (since DBZ already finished, it has the major characters from all of it). Since Uchiha Itachi only appears with a major role later on in Naruto, they did not include him. Sorry for your loss, but if he is your favorite character, buy the game so Uchiha Sasuke can get beat up multiple times. :D

    Sorry, but while I was in highschool, I chose French as a second language, not Spanish or Portugese. That being said, I cannot counter-comment or comment on your comments, “manu”, “manueloliveradiaz”, or “the grand master”.

    Look everyone, it’s all fun and fine to wonder who would win in a dream match clash, but this argument was going on from since people wondered about Mortal Kombat vs Street Fighter or Killer Instinct vs Mortal Kombat. I agree with the guys before you can’t compare one set of characters to another set. Each universe is set different and has it’s own set of rules governing battles. For example the only major destruction I’ve seen in Naruto has been Tsunade destroying the castle wall with a backhand punch. That’s like trying to compare Zangief to Potemkin or Paul Phoenix to Ryu.
    W ith all of that said let’s just agree that the main characters are the equivalent of their counterparts in each universe, i.e. Naruto is the Goku of his universe and so on. The purpose of a cross over game is to allow people to play their favorite characters all in one game. Think about the MVC series. Everyone knows Wolverine tears shreds out of anyone in reality (funny calling it reality when these stories are all fantasy) and Spiderman goads people until they make a mistake and Hulk just is improbable to beat. Yet ordinary humans can defeat the Marvel characters as long as their player is good at THE GAME! Please let this argument die, it’s a bit perturbing.
    Anyway, as for the game itself, I’ve had a chance to play it and although I’m not a fan of Naruto or Dragon Ball Z games, I find this one highly addicted (read that as crack addict level). It’s loads of fun with four players especially when time is almost up and everyone pulls a power move in a last ditch attempt to get that extra damage. It’s a good time waster that anyone can pick up with ease. It’s unbalanced yes, but so is Smash Brothers to a point.

    i agree

  • Another intelligent being…

    Fobose222, even though I agree with your position, you can still use proper spelling and grammar to get your point across with greater efficiency.

  • fobose222

    ecuse me mr. i know wvrything! IM ONLY 11 fOR PEETES SAKE

  • Another intelligent being…

    That’s no excuse. I didn’t claim to know everything either, but as you say, you are only 11, and so you can hardly call other people immature, no? I know not about my own maturity as opposed to those older than me, but I do believe that at my 18 years of age, I am a bit more mature than those still in grade school.

  • Zoro

    Goku will kill naruto easily. DBZ strongest one piece 2nd naruto weakest

  • Another intelligent being…

    I definitely agree with you. However, which Zoro are you speaking for? Roronoa Zoro or Zorro? (Can’t be sure because of so many spelling errors from other people.)

  • zoro

    Roronoa Zoro!!

  • zoro

    The Yonkou and Shichibukai of One piece could probably conquer the naruto world easy.

  • Another intelligent being…

    Eh, I don’t know if the jinchuuriki and the Akatski would be taken down easily, but the rest of the world would be. For example, would Crocodile be able to defeat Gaara?

  • zoro

    You know i think Enel could do good damage. Vunerable, lightning fast attacks and only way to beat him is rubber.

  • Another intelligent being…

    True, Enel would be tough to beat, but Cell and/or Buu would beat any of the One Piece or Naruto villains, if just because of their regeneration capability. I wonder if Gotenk’s “Galactic Donut” would work against Enel? The kamikaze ghosts probably would.

  • D.O.N fan

    i have a question. i want to get this game and im in the US. if i got it would it work on my Gamecube? as in does this game have like a region lock on it?

  • Another intelligent being…

    If you check the first few posts in this discussion, I think you will be answered. Specifically, the posts by “ZETSUEI” and “big anime fan”.

  • D.O.N fan

    ya but wats a freeloader? and wer can i get one?

  • Another intelligent being…

    That I am not so sure about, but you could probably google it to find out more. Where can you get one? Think Ebay.

  • fobose222

    zorro is gay and so am i

  • fobose222

    very mature guys. comeon and dont write under other ppls names okay?

    ps. i dident make the post before this.

  • fobose222

    and A.I.B (another intelegent being) do not judge somones matrity bye their age or grad levle. juge by how they act.

  • Another intelligent being…

    The way you are acting does not really alter my opinion of your maturity very much….

  • http://google.com Burst_Limit

    Naruto characters are Human like Krillin
    DBZ have alien chars known as Saiyans

    So Naruto chars would be like Krillin vs Goku

    Enough said

    Either that or Fusion technique on Naruto and Goku> Gokruto

  • Another intelligent being…

    That might be Burst Limit, but I disagree about the fusion name.

    Also, as many people may or may not be aware (though it seems to be the latter case), the fusion technique only works on people of similar size and power levels.

    However, going with the fan fiction names (such as Kriccolo), normally its one syllable from the Son family (Son Goku, Son Gohan, etc.) within the fusion name, as seen in Ve(ku), (Go)geta, and (Goten)ks. The potara fusion seems to disregard that rule, with Vegitto and Kibito Kai(Kaioshin and Kibito).

    In regard to the first part of your comment, I would have to say that in comparing power levels, it would be more proper, so to speak, to compare Naruto with Dragonball, and Naruto: Shippūden with Dragonball Z and Dragonball GT. One Piece, since it has not yet broken up into different parts, has to be compared with the other 2 universes in its entirety (at least in my opinion).

  • Another intelligent being…

    Ah, it appears that all the doubters have gone away now. If your questions have not been answered by the above comments or by the description given at the top of the page, please post them here so that others might be able to answer them.

  • http://siliconera.com naruto13

    Naruto is better then dbz ten times

  • Another intelligent being…

    Ah, I knew another doubter would come along.

    Naruto13, *how* is Naruto better than Dragonball Z?

  • http://siliconera.com naruto13

    well if narotp went 9 tail fox on goku i personallt think hed win. look people i no some of u like dbz better and i have nothing against it, im just saying my opinion.

  • Another intelligent being…

    Hmm…if Naruto in his 9-tailed fox cloak form went against Goku from Dragonball (before the final tournament in DB), then he might’ve won indeed, if Naruto could sustain the form long enough. Remember, even at the 4-tailed form, the cloak is damaging Naruto almost as much as it heals and protects him. Then again, if Goku is older and more skilled than at that time, from Dragonball Z or Dragonball GT, then it would still probably be Goku who wins.

    Again, even though I am a DBZ fan more than a One Piece or Naruto fan, I’m trying to be unbiased in my arguments. My reason for Goku triumphing over Naruto is simply this: Goku has the power to blow up the scenery in a major way without going super saiyan, but Naruto cannot unless he manifests the demon fox cloak. Also, Goku can retreat (or perform a tactical withdrawal) in a much more expedient manner than Naruto can.

    From Dragonball, we see than he can run swim oceans and run very fast, and from Dragonball Z that he can fly fast enough to create a shockwave. Goku can teleport, or use Instant Transmission, to get away from the fight even faster, although he has to teleport to someone or something that gives off energy (so he can target the energy).

    However, Naruto is not all that fast. He can run on water and leap far, but that is more a matter of technique rather than physical stamina. Yes, he still has a lot of stamina, but that is provided mainly by the Kyuubi within him.

    Therefore, due to these reasons (as well as others mentioned in previous comments), I conclude that Goku would prevail over Naruto.

    Naruto13, do you have contrary evidence to prove your viewpoint?

  • http://siliconera.com naruto13

    hey c’mon, im jus’ saying my opinion, maybe goku would win. i thing there both real strong characters in there shows, an yeah, in super saiyin gokud probubly win, but if not, naruto can sorta match him in power, if he used his imense chacra, hed run faster, if he used 9 tailed fox,hed be stronger, it all depends on which way u look at it, and on your opinion. i honestly ment to offend no one’s oppinions with my own.

  • Linkah

    Heh, looks like naruto13′s been backed into a wall. DW man, no-ones blamin’ you.

    I suppose Goku would probably win. I have personally not read either, but judging from what I hear from friends, Goku’s power is freakish compared to Naruto’s. Naruto’s cool, but his powers just…well…toned down to real-life standards.

    I think a better debate would be Naruto vs Ichigo. They’re both at superhuman (not freak) levels, and they’re both human…kinda *shifty eyes*

  • Another intelligent being…

    Alright. Just wanted to make sure that you were attempting to make an educated opinion, rather than trying to overpower reason with passion.

  • http://siliconera.com naruto13

    yeah well, i still think hed win, i aint tryin ta cause no trouble.if u think gokud win thats alright, i was taking sertian srcumstances and puttin them together. but now thinkin about it, who do ya thinkd win between naruto and that one piece dude?(sorry i dont really watch the show so i dont no his name)any opinions on that?

  • Another intelligent being…

    Between Luffy and Naruto? I’m not quite sure, but I’m thinking Naruto would win if he used kunai and other edged weapons, since Luffy is weak against blades. However, if Naruto just used his fists, Luffy would win with his rubber composition. Unfortunately for Naruto, he isn’t water-element, so he can’t drown Luffy for an easy win. I myself am not as indepth in knowledge about Naruto or One Piece as I am Dragonball Z, so I cannot offer as much support in those comparisons.
