You know what a ‘Death Battle’ is, right?

Yeh, I don’t mean cage fighting or anything like that. Well, there is the DEATH BATTLE website now, but Death Battles started a long time before that. At least where I come from they did. In my experience, it was one of those school playground questions we’d pose to each other — who has the strongest dad? Who’d win a fight between your dad and the headmaster? Who’d win a fight between teacher 1 and teacher 2… and so it went on.

When I began reading superhero comics, it was natural that we’d ask the same questions of our superheroes — and then, of course, the comic writers were thinking the same thing and began pitting superheroes and supervillains against each other. And so it went on.

But there is a website now, and has been around for quite some years, now. It’s called Death Battle (often written as DEATH BATTLE) and is an animated series in which fictional characters from different stories or origins are compared to decide who would win in a fight.

‘Awesome’ I hear you say!

The series’ first episode, “Boba Fett VS Samus Aran” was released on December 6th, 2010 on the ‘ScrewAttack’ Youtube account, where it got over 5 million views in 5 years. And those were still the early years of YouTube! The show has become the channel’s most viewed series. Further series and spin-off shows have been created: One-Minute Melee, and Desk of Death Battle.

Anyway, we thought we’d do a little ‘thought experiment’ with the whole Death Battle thing, featuring Dumbledore — after seeing a few Death Battle proposals, we thought we’d juice it up a bit.

So, here are our 15 favorite Dumbledore themed Death Battle ideas — we noticed they’re all men so we might come up wth a ‘girls’ version if this is popular enough.

Ok, so this one has already been proposed — Dumbledore vs Gandalf. We figure it would be a fairly even match if it happened, although they’re both ‘good guys’ and essentially pacifists, so one of them would have to go to the dark side to start up on each other…

 

02-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-GANDALF-WITH-AK47
02-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-GANDALF-WITH-AK47

But here’s any idea — what if they couldn’t use magic and were only allowed AK-47’s? It’s a thought…

 

03-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Alec-~Guinness-as-obi-wan-kenobi
03-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Alec-~Guinness-as-obi-wan-kenobi

So here’s another Death Battle match that’s already done the rounds — Dumbledore vs Obi Wan Kenobi. As before, they’re both good guys and don’t go picking fights unecessarily, so it would be a tough one to arrange but I’d have them fairly evenly matching — IF we’re talking about Alec Guinness as Obi Wan…

04-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Ewan-McGregors-as-obi-wan-kenobi

On the other hand, IF we’re talking about Ewan McGregor as Obi Wan — then I hope and wish that Dumbledore would kick his butt! Ewan McGregor should never have been cast as the young Obi Wan and he brought the whole Jedi thing down with his slouching and bad acting.

 

05-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Merlin
05-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Merlin

Moviing on… I thought I’d take a look at how Dumbledore might fare against some other classic movie wizards. First there’s Merlin from the 1981 John Boorman film Excalibur with Nicol Williamson as Merlin. Which, by the way, featured Helen Mirren as Morgana Le FAy — who could be a contender for our all girls battle series. Anyway, not a great performance by Williamson, really, and not a patch on either Richard Harris or Michael Gambon — just on principle Dumbledore should probably open a can of whoopass…

Next in the line up is all-star David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King, in Jim Henson’s 1986 movie Labyrinth. This would be an interesting fight — although I think Bowie might blow it by breaking into song halfway through. And let’s face it, however great Jim Henson might be, muppet baddies aren’t a patch on Harry Potter’s greenscreen CGI so I think Dumbledore might win just on effects…

 

07-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Lo-Pan

Now we’re getting down to the serious stuff — remember Big Trouble in Little China? The 1986 John Carpenter film starring Kurt Russell? A true classic in every way — but also featured one of the greatest movie wizards ever: Lo Pan played by James Hong. He’s kind of half wizard, half vampire, part serpent, or something, but definitely a precursor to Voldemort and a good match for our Dumbledore — pure evil too, so no problem getting him into the ring for a fight…

 

08-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-real-vs-DR-Strange
08-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-real-vs-DR-Strange

Still a classic but in its contemporary rendition — Dr Strange acted by Benedict Cumberbatch. In fact, Mr Cumberbatch has acted as a few characters I’d like to see pitted against Dumbledore — Sherlock Holmes would be an interesting one, as would Dr Who. In any case, he plays the parts well and would be a convincing antagonist — although once the acting was over and the real fighting began, who knows!

 

09-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-the-wizard-of-oz
09-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-the-wizard-of-oz

Just thought I’d throw this one in — another ‘classic’ wizard but a little left of field. The Wizard of Oz is definitely a bit of a fraud and Dumbledore could probably take him without even using any magic, but he looks like the kind of guy who might know some Jujitsu and could surprise us all…

 

10-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-real-vs-Cartman-as-Gandalf
10-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-real-vs-Cartman-as-Gandalf

Ok, back to that Gandalf feud that’s been raging ever since Harry Potter and the Lord of The Rings both took to movie theatres and seemed to have the same wizard in both… I thought Cartman as Gandalf might spice things up a bit. Sure, he’s a kid, but he’s got a big attitude and while Gandalf may not indulge in a pointless fight Cartman definitely would — only problem I can think of is that he is a cartoon, and a very 2 dimensional one at that…

 

11-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Cartman-as-Gandalf
11-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Cartman-as-Gandalf

So, here’s one solution — we start the fight with a cartoon version of Dumbledore. I dunno, it’s not looking like such a good idea now…

 

12-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-real-vs-Dacid-Blaine

Speaking of Wizards, I moved on to Magicians. Or one Magician actually, David Blaine — I just thought it would be funny to see a stage magician get his ass kicked by a real life lightning firing wizard. I know, Dumbledore is fictional — but it’s a fantasy…

 

13-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Clint-the-man-with-no-name
13-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Clint-the-man-with-no-name

So, quickly finding wizards repetitive, I thought I’d consider how Dumbledore might match up to some real movie tough guys, starting with The Man With No Name (although his name is actually Clint Eastwood). I think it would be a bit of a staring match, but on balance, I still think Clint would e quicker on the draw — because he is…

 

14-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Bruce-Lee
14-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-vs-Bruce-Lee

Ok, Dumbledore gets to use his magic but Bruce Lee uses his! And his magic is KUNG FU! My money will always be on Bruce Lee — he only has to get lucky once, and Dumbledore has to get lucky every time…

 

15-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-real-vs-Rambo
15-Death-Battle-Albus-Dumbledore-real-vs-Rambo

Finally, since Dumbledore has already warmed up in an AK-47 match against Gandalf, I thought he might be feeling a little cocky and maybe try his luck with Rambo. Personally, I think Rambo would kick just about everyone’s butt — maybe after that Bruce Lee fight, thought, our Dumble is feeling like he’s got something to prove..
