    Personally, I hate Esdeath as a character, but as a fighter? Badass.

    I don’t know about who would win between these two, but I know which one I’d want to kick my ass.

    Gray’s make magic doesn’t allow him to make living moving things. It only works for Leon so gray’s first attack with the clones wasn’t accurate

    you wouldnt believe what we just went throught it was weirdly sexual

  • MonsieurMistey

    I believe Esdeath wins due to her lack for empathy and ability to stop time completely. Also, she doesn't need to stock up in power. It's a natural ability. She's pretty much invisible. Her only weakness was Tatsumi and her bloodlust. hence why she died. Also she's taller than 5'7". She's actually much taller. Around 6'4" Since Tatsumi is 5'10"

  • Professor Coldheart

    When you understand frost/ice magic, isn't just making things cold but draining them of their heat/energy or life essence, rather entropy; the ability to stop the flow of time makes a lot more sense than you'd think.

    • Professor Coldheart
      Professor Coldheart

      @Fairies Flame I've seen that. Personally the troll in me likes the ideal that Dabi is actually Deku's long lost pops. That ideal or theory holds no water but it does make me laugh.

    • Fairies Flame
      Fairies Flame

      @Professor Coldheart Actually there is a speculation that Dabi is Toya Todoroki where he had a strong fire quirk but held a weak consitution. Which kinda fits Dabi's blue flame quirk.

    • Professor Coldheart
      Professor Coldheart

      @Fairies Flame Concerning fire powers, I can't blame you at all. From Prometheus to flamethrowers, there's just something about playing with fire. If I ever had one complaint about fire, it's that most characters do it wrong. Dabi from Hero Academe and Prince Zuko were a step in the right direction though, without that element of danger it just loses all the impact. Fire is the element of destruction, creation and renewal, it's not a firework and nor is it a toy.

    • Fairies Flame
      Fairies Flame

      @Professor Coldheart For me, I like Fire powers more.

    • Professor Coldheart
      Professor Coldheart

      ​@Fairies Flame Think of it less like cold or ice and more like the removal of heat/energy, essentially stopping a fundamental force of reality. Without heat, there is no decay, without decay there is no time. That, and the understanding of time as a force of reality is a little misunderstood these days. Time as a force is meaningless, the concept only exist within your mind but the placement and reactivity of matter isn't. Now imagine being able to halt matter and energy in it's place with cold beyond cold or cryo-stasis. Your not freezing time, your slowing the natural flow of matter in the universe by removing heat and energy rendering inert. If temporarily. For the record, I don't care for either of these characters very much in particular, I just like ice powers in general. Both put on a great showing of just how dangerous entropy can be.

    I didn't really mind who won, but did anyone else expect Gray to have 1 last ice clone? Y'know, like during Tartaros against Silver, he had a fake for his fake.

    Finally a death battle I can fully agree with.

    Why Esdeath win but Akame loose against everyone you put her against?

    • Eyebrawler

      Akame only appeared on DBX against Killua, which has no research (Killua is easily more popular, so it’s not far fetched that they made him win).

    • Justin Alicea

    Death Battle measures everything with TNT. Even ice is measured using TNT not temperature LOL

    • Justin Alicea
      Justin Alicea

      Because TNT is something anyone knows about, thus making it easy to get the common person to grasp how powerful something is, as compared to, say, Newtons or Joules, which don't have meaning without context. Also, temperature is the measurement of how much an object's atoms are vibrating. That has no bearing on power output.

  • Mai karin Nakashima

    bro,,, you should either do grey vs todoroki or Natsu vs todoroki.

  • Aziah Riley

    How to u compare an ice storm to tnt?

    • Justin Alicea
      Justin Alicea

      Because when TNT was introduced, someone measured the Joules of a ton of TNT and said that means there is a conversion factor between Joules and tons of TNT. A good thing, as TNT is something almost every person has heard of and knows the result of, meaning that people can imagine what it looks like. This is why even atomic bombs and up are measured in tons of TNT.

  • Tom

    You know gray eats ice and if he does he becomes stronger so it’s impossible for gray to lose to an ice wizard

    • Justin Alicea
      Justin Alicea

      Gray must consciously be attempting to eat ice, as it is not a passive effect. As such, any time he is not doing so allows Esdeath to attack with ice. And once he begins to do so, she can use her sword instead to get in close against Gray and kill him that way. And even if he stops, she can just stab him with ice and kill him that way.

  • The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation
    The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation

    Wait, Gray can use other people's ice powers against them, why wasn't that talked about

    • Justin Alicea
      Justin Alicea

      @The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation No, they just gave Goku his physical strength as shown being the limit of 40 tons. Granted, as I later learned, that it was without ki enhancement, but that only makes it more important. Goku's limit with minimal ki to his strength lets him pick up a continent in Super Saiyan 4. With ki enhancement, which his maximum output is his durability, which already was planet level at Kaioken times four, yes, Super Saiyan 4 has crazy power. It just isn't enough compared to Superman's.

    • The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation
      The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation

      @Justin Alicea I dunno. Fairy tail is garbage. Gray is immune but that guy is like I'm even stronger than your immunity. But then Gray just beat his move by using his magic to control his ice. Fairy tail got too big with it's power escalation. Also Death Battle isn't that good at calculating power output. They said Super Saiyan 4 Goku couldn't blow up a planet.

    • Justin Alicea
      Justin Alicea

      @The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation Because he isn't, as proven by Invel using Ice Lock on him while in Demon Slayer form. And Gray admitting, still in that form, that the ice storm that Invel created could freeze him.

    • The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation
      The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation

      @Justin Alicea also why was he even being hurt or affected by any ice attack if he is immune to it

    • Justin Alicea
      Justin Alicea

      @The Shining Silver Shadow Foundation Rewatch the video and note Esdeath's calculated power output. This is far greater than the ice storm that Gray scales too. While Grey has the special ability to control other people's ice, if Esdeath is still manipulating that ice, they will each be fighting each other for control. Power vs power. Which Esdeath has far more of.

  • Kamrin

    they said at the start that he can manipulate the ice of other people, but didn't use it

    • Justin Alicea
      Justin Alicea

      He does use it in the animation. Once, as Esdeath's power output is too great for him to control it when she is.

    In all seriousness, how did Gray lose?

    • Eyebrawler

      600 coyotes He can. While he's eating he'd just be open for Esdeath to attack with her rapier. Once he stops, she can attack with her ice again.

    • 600 coyotes
      600 coyotes

      @Eyebrawler if I remember correctly, Gray's Demon Slayer powers give him the ability to consume ice like how Natsu can with fire.

    • Eyebrawler

      Esdeath has superior ice abilities, a tactical mindset, and superiority in both hand to hand combat and swordsmanship. The only thing preventing this from being a horrible stomp against Gray was his Demon Slayer form.

  • KimchiisJohn

    Can we have the winners of the ice death battle? Sub-Zero VS Esdeath?

    • Fairies Flame

      Believe me man, I felt like there was something off with their calculations. They have an ice storm in fiore that is around 3500 km and calculated that in 27 gigatons. Yet, they measured shikotazer's crater around 400 km diameter and measured it as 900 teratons. I really think they lowballed Gray and wanked Esdeath's.

    I know y'all was trying your hardest to find something to compare to TNT in this video. Even though its two literal ice people..... You guys need to get a math/physics department if you really want to quantitatively support your videos and their outcomes.

    Most Shonen series slowly but surely add more and more overpowered antagonists with more and more broken powers as the story goes on, but Akame Ga Kill is unique in that the bad guys are already OP as hell and only get stronger, and freely commit as many atrocities as humanly possible and possess no redeeming qualities. All so we can pray that one day the main protagonists will be finally strong enough to make them pay. It's like a more optimistic Berserk. Esdeath, in particular, is unique in that while she's not the big bad, she is just the strongest person in the world. Literally, the only reason why the world's a shithole is that she actively supports said big bad, not because of any particular power level or evil genius of said big bad, to the point that in one adaptation, he goes down first. Killing him is fairly easy, killing her is borderline impossible. Imagine if Peter Pettigrew was the real big bad of Harry Poter, and Voldemort was the "dumb muscle". She's DIO, Gray, and Barbatos Goetia in one, while Gray was just Gray.

  • Rune Aether

    I can make the time freezing thing make sense. It stops all molecular movement but her own. Because of this, everything freezes in place, preserved in its current state for as long as everything is frozen. You wouldn’t be able to perceive anything, due to the entire absence of energy and well, your brain freezing instantaneously. To a person outside the area effected, nothing but Esdeath and the things she’s holding are moving. Objects would be suspended in air, liquids don’t flow, and other people just don’t move. To a person inside the field of effect, they wouldn’t be aware of what happened.

      Alex Sander

      @Cliche anti-hero jackass well the video was crap when they gave esdeath an army and gray moving clones...but DB do state that battles are for fun and not true representation of the battle so they kinda be it at times

    • Cliche anti-hero jackass
      Cliche anti-hero jackass

      @Alex Sander 10 tons of ice would kill him by its sheer weight a small shard wouldn't because it penetrate his skin, that's literally the point of slayer type magic in fairy tail, you can't hurt them directly with attacks of the same element only with the byproduct of that attack for example you could make a baseball bat out of ice and hit gray so hard he slams into a wall, the impact of the bat wouldn't do anything, slamming into the wall would tho, so a 10 ton ball would kill him, the impact wouldn't do anything, the sheer weight crushing him would, so no that shard wouldn't have done anything, yes it stabs but it's still ice and therefore wouldn't have done anything, I would have been fine with the result of this if esdeath threw her actual sword for the finisher, it's doing it with a ice shard which woudnt have actually done anything that grinds my gears

    • Alex Sander
      Alex Sander

      Does being immune to ice also cancel out physics? If a 10 tons of ice was dropped on gray would his resistance protect him from getting crushed? Is he also stab proof? Tatsumi was immune to ice and cold as well but he was still stab by an ice sword you know it's the sharpness not the cold that cut him.

    Actually freezing time makes perfect sense, once you get over that whole "time is an abstract fourth dimensional something we don't understand" BS. In reality "time" is merely a unit of measurement; a means of quantifying and understanding movement. Movement being kinetic energy, and therefore producing/a byproduct of heat. Likewise "cold" is the absence of kinetic energy withing a molecule or atomic structure, while heat is just the friction of objects caught in that flow of energy slamming into each other. SO....if cold is the absence of moment, and she can control cold, it means her actual power is to force stop anything within a set area down to the molecular or even sub atomic level. Do that to EVERYTHING within a given range and you've effectively stopped time. As time is, once again, nothing but a measure of movement. This is actually similar to how black holes work; as their intense gravitational pull overpowers the innate kinetic energy/movement of anything that gets too close, locking it in place and thus "stopping" the local area of "space-time" around them. Only instead of using gravity, she's just nullifying kinetic energy directly.

      Absolute zero is a cool concept. And it's even cooler that it's only theatrically possible. Humans have never achieved it but we have come close.

    • Alex Sander
      Alex Sander

      Still doesnt make sense once you take light and gravity into account. Stopping things at a molecular level is nothing like event horizon of a black hole. Still though makes move sense then in fairytail where ice can wipe your memories or make you a slave.
