After long last, the Halloween comic is finally here! Who will win? The Terror of Transylvania or the King of Evil?
First off, Happy Halloween everyone! In order to celebrate this grand, spooky holiday I present to you the Dracula vs. Ganondorf DEATH BATTLE Comic!!!
But before you view it, I have some things to mention:
Thank you SO MUCH for everyone that was a part of this!
Unfortunately the comic is incomplete in some spots due to time crunches despite my best efforts (sorry). It was either to delay it or to put it out now but I decided to post it today since it's mostly done and it wouldn't have the same impact if I posted it after Halloween. To fill in the gaps, I have placed in text.
I HIGHLY recommend you to view the Research Page before viewing the comic to get a sense as to what's going on and what the stats for each character is.
Most of the panels have been edited/resized for blog format.
Some of the panels are rather big due to some troubles I faced resizing that would unfortunately make them blurry (and because the resize function doesn't work on the blog itself for whatever reason). As a temporary solution, I can suggest you to hold Ctrl and then scroll to make the screen smaller.
Keep in mind that there WILL be continuity errors. After all, this was given to many artists. For those interested in seeing the original script, I placed it in the comments section.
Some panels are bonus ones, meaning that another artist did the same panel.
If there are any errors with names, etc. LET ME KNOW ASAP! If this gets frontpaged, then please tell this to the ScrewAttack team (I can't edit it if it gets frontpaged) or in the comments. Thanks.
Credits are at the end. If you enjoyed what any one of these people did in their artwork, then check out their stuff by clicking on their names! It's the least I could do with all of the help they've given me.
This is unofficial and not done by Screwattack---it is done by fans.
(The Creature was supposed to have the machine gun but let's just say that Drac borrowed it because this is so cool that this NEEDS to be posted. I probably should have described that more in detail to Rich but oh well...)
Both forces on both sides in the minions aspect are generally equally as powerful. Dracula may have won over Veran, but he will not kill her due to love of women and would suck her blood to take out Onox, an overpowered creature--a strategic move. Ganondorf can defeat Carmilla--no sweat. Everything else equals out due to specific weaknesses.
However, Death is no match for Phantom Ganon's electric/holy ball of energy and Ganondorf's holy attacks so Dracula is forced to take out Death to severely weaken Phantom Ganon.
Since both have ulimate forms that heal each other's human forms, this battle basically boils down to whoever has the most powerful ultimate form. Looking at the stats, Ganon would defeat True Dracula in a heartbeat thanks to his holy tridents but I wanted to make it more interesting so I devised up a new ending that could occur, yet Ganon would still win. Dracula's forces would have perhaps given him a slight edge if Death wasn't weak to holy/electric attacks but that isn't the case, therefore delaying the inevitable. If that isn't enough to convince you, Ganondorf has survived a castle explostion unscathed.
I actually thought that Dracula would win when writing this with his combat strategy, but some
crucial details popped up that I mentioned above.
Special thanks to:

Also, I should mention that the idea of giving different pages to different artists was borrowed from g1 The Stickman for his Space Penguin #1.5 issue idea. This comic was inspired by Ben and Chad's Death Battle, Konami's Castlevania, and Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda.
