you are a ms paint wizard, Sanji. Thread looks great, thanks for putting it up.
I might ask Greg to pin it later, maybe, not sure its necessary :/ it'd look nice tho
Dumping all the quotes about a battle thread for now, i'll do something with them tomorrow, too tired right now to think how we could make a battle thread work
Here's a question, would you guys be enticed by the prospect of a Strength/Battle Scenarios discussion thread ? A place to discuss the strength of Toriko characters and theorise how they compare with each other or characters from other series in whatever random scenarios we can think of ? Stuff like who's the strongest Eight King; who's the strongest HK; the strongest human that's not a HK, Bishokukai or part of Neo; strongest member of Neo that's not Joa, etc. Or random battle scenarios within the verse such as the HK vs Bishokukai without Midora or the Bishokukai as a group vs Bambina; Four Beasts vs Buranchi, etc. Or whatever scenario involving Toriko chacters vs characters from different series, like the HK vs The Akatsuki; Zebra vs Whitebeard; Regal Mammoth vs OP Weakling Trio, Zonge vs Sakura, Gaoh ( Four Beasts limb ) vs Youpi ( H x H ). Whatever you can think of. I wonder how much activity such a thread would get and how interested people would be in it. I know we have the Battle Dome thing, but that's a bit more formal and people might feel intimidated by the idea of opening a thread to propose a random match-up that others might not be interested in.
Its do able but you'd have to restrict Toriko characters.
Most of the series capable of giving them good fights aren't read by a lot of people on this site.
Well it wouldn't really be a place to settle debates but more so to bring forth power related discussions within verse ,or when compared to other series in scenarios that are interesting/fun due to the match-ups or the conditions set to in order to make them fun.
@Sanji Like you said, we have a subforum for crossover-fights, so I think those should go there for consistency, but in-universe... sure, why not.
a Strength/Battle Scenarios discussion thread might draw discussion away from the other threads. What will we talk about in the 8kings/ 4hk threads?
I agree with both of your points and i did consider them as well, that's why i wanted to see more opinions on the matter. Just in universe might be a bit too limited and could draw away some potential discussion from certain threads like Hubris said. If we go for vs with other series as well, there's already a section for that like Oben said and consistency would call for us to take any such potential ideas there. Partial counterarguments to this points, that don't really take away from the validity of your statements though but are worth consideration, come with the fact that having a single thread that allows and promotes such discussion might get the Toriko readers interested in the idea and also make them less "fearful" with throwing in their ideas, since unlike in the dedicated battle thing section you wouldn't have to open threads that might sit there deserted with no one interested in them. You can just make random attempts and join random discussions easily. Serious, outrageous, hilarious one's, with those that pique the interest of everyone else further expanding and the ones that are less succesful feeling like less of a failure from your part and less of a discouraging factors in terms of making other attempts.
