Raphael vs Charizard is a What-if? Episode of Death Battle.


TMNT vs Pokemon! These two are the runner-ups of their own battle royales, but which runner-up is the deadliest?


Wiz: On a previous episode, we pitted Raphael against Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo against each other in a TMNT battle royale and Raph got the runner-up role when losing to Leo.

Boomstick: Same thing for Charizard, when we pitted him against Venusaur and Blastoise  in a Kanto Starter Pokemon Battle Royale, which is another previous episode!

Wiz: Now we bring both runner-ups back from the dead to fight each other, which runner-up is deadliest?

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick!

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win a Death Battle.


Wiz: Raphael is the brawn of the ninja turtles.

Boomstick: He's cool, but borderline psycho, not crude. His weapon of choice is his trusty set of twin sais, which he can stop and manipulate weapons coming at him including swords, and sometimes snapping them off.

Wiz: And during his mutation, along with his brothers Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo; Raphael's normal strength and speed as a turtle multiplied by the typical strength of a strong person for his strength and by the typical speed of a fast person for his speed.

Boomstick: But Raph has always relied on his strength from his rage and anger.

Wiz: Right, and he's not the smartest turtle because he always uses brute force to overcome his enemies instead of strategizing like Leonardo does.

Boomstick: Not to mention he always challenges Leo on the terms of leadership again and again, despite his fault of losing to Mikey once.

Wiz: Even so, Raph is one vicious turtle of the team, that in the comics, and I will say it again, he became the Shredder himself.

Raphael: "Does the phrase 'Go suck a lemon' hold a meaning to you?"


Wiz: This Starter Pokemon evolves from Charmander to Charmeleon and finally to Charizard, the Flame Pokemon.

Boomstick: Wow, this is so awesome, since there are more than one Charizard in the world.

Wiz: True, and its fast and powerful, that its speed and special attack eclipse his two Kanto Counterparts; however it has unfortunate frailty.

Boomstick: And it is hard to get a hold of him while he flies.

Wiz: Charizard is one of the fully evolved Kanto Starters to have up to five elemental attacks between normal, flying, ghost, dragon, and of course, fire.

Boomstick: When physically fighting on the ground, he is more than willing to use Slash and the two claw attacks between Shadow Claw and Dragon Claw.

Wiz: But when flying, it will be able to use Wing Attack and Air Slash.

Boomstick: But let's not forget his key power, his fire moves, since he is a fire type. Charizard is capable of dishing out literal hot bites with Fire Fang, he'll also imprison his foes in flames with fire spin, plus slam them in a flaming way with Flare Blitz...

Wiz: Which also gives him a certain amount of recoil damage taken, so it can't be taken lightly.

Boomstick: ...but at least he'll use his powerful breathing fire moves, Flame Burst and Flamethrower.

Wiz: As a Fire type, He is strong against Grass types, but weak to Water types.

Boomstick: But Charizard can always find opponents to his power worthiness, no matter how dangerous.

Charizard roars.



Wiz: All right, the combatants are set, let's end the debate once and for all.

Boomstick: It's time for a Death Battle!


In New York City, we see Raphael doing certain Ninja training solo on the rooftops, until he sees an orange Dragon fly by at surprising speed, knocking Raph off his feet.

Raphael: Damn, what gives?!

Charizard growls as he does a fighting pose.

Raphael: You want a fight? Fine, you got yourself a fight!


Raphael charges at Charizard, but Charizard takes to the skies and uses Wing Attack. Raph dodges, and jumps onto a rooftop shed and jumps to try to ambush Charizard from above, Charizard dodges in time, causing Raph to fall in the alley but with laundry lines to brake his fall one at a time.

Raphael: Man, does this guy ever quit?

Charizard charges at Raph, getting ready to uses Slash, which scratched Raph five times, until Raph used his sais to block Charizard's claws, making them bleed a bit.

Raphael: Try and get me in the sewers if you can!

Raphael jumps in the sewers, and Charizard flies in after him; When Charizard is in the Sewer, he couldn't see Raph; so Charizard uses Flamethrower to burn down the sewer walls, exposing Raph.

Raphael: Oh great, now my defense is burned down.

Then Raph tries to use his sais again to stab Charizard in the belly, but charizard flies up again, and uses Fire Fang to clamp on Raph's head, and it Raph catches on fire on his head, causing him to try and put it out in the sewer water, while Charizard finishes off Raph with Flame burst, causing not just Raph's head to be on fire, but the rest of his body too, until he was burned to ashes, and Charizard gives out a victorious roar.



Boomstick: Wow, way to go, Charizard!

Wiz: Raphael may a strong turtle, but Charizard surpassed him on that.

Boomstick: Not to mention the speed as well, and his variety of Fire moves that helped him out some.

Wiz: And it was smart of Charizard to use Flamethrower on the sewer walls since they are made of bricks, a type of rocks, and Charizard is known to melt rocks, which I mentioned that his breath can be up to 2000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Boomstick: Looks like Raph's Hotheadedness got the best of him.


Wiz: The winner is Charizard.
