Death Battle Fanon Wiki

This is a What-If Death Battle between Gurren Lagann from the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann series, and Madoka Kaname from the PMMM series.

Description[]

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann vs PMMM!! Who's the best universe buster?

Interlude[]

Wiz: Hope. A concept that was designed to help man. Or destroy it, following your angle of view on it.

Boomstick: Some people can inspire that emotion in others, or even frigging become it!! Like Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, the most epic mech to have lived on this fiction.

Wiz: And Madoka Kaname, the Goddess of Hope.

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

Wiz: And it's our job to analyse their weapons, armour and skill to find out who would win... a Death Battle.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann[]

Wiz: There once was a post-apocalyptic Earth.

Boomstick: Like that idea wasn't used before...

Wiz:... Where a group of humans was surviving the invasion of another species of antropomorphic animals.

Boomstick: They were doing it by hiding underground, like moles... Poor lads.

Wiz: Until one of them, named Simon, stumbled onto a mech named Lagann.

Boomstick: And then, everything spiraled out of control and they attained crazy levels of power... See what I did there?

  • cricket, cricket, cricket*

Wiz: Hrum. To understand Boomstick's lousy joke....

Boomstick: It was awesome, shut up!!!

Wiz: .... You need to understand the principal source of power of the universe depicted here. It's a form of energy named Spiral power.

Boomstick: It's a fantastical thing fueled by the determination of the pilot, and which, oddly, grants the power to summon drills out of nowhere. Whatever works I guess.

Wiz: By combining mechs, you get larger and stronger. To the point where you get as big as a galaxy itself.

Boomstick: That's what Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is. God, what a mouthful.

Wiz: It's the culmination of every mech of the good side. They formed it when they had to face a being named the Anti-Spiral .

Boomstick: In this form, they're able to do the sae job as usual, except they're flinging galaxies around and running on the Milky Way!!

Wiz: One of the culminative points of the fight was when the Anti-Spiral charged an attack using two galaxies, called Infinity Big Bang Storm.

Boomstick: Which, as you guessed, has the power of the Big Bang.

Wiz: *cringe* Saying that something has "the power of the Big Bang" makes about as much sense than saying something has the power of 9/11. It's just an event.

Boomstick: Well, it had the power of all the mass and energy in the universe combined. Happy?

Wiz: Much better yes.

Boomstick: Nevertheless, it tanked that attack, although it fell apart afterward. But the separate components were fine.

Wiz: The Anti-Spiral later used the attack a second time. And that's when LordGenome came in.

Boomstick: A previous main antagonist in the first arc, and now he was just a head acting as the motherboard of all the mechs. He then somehow regened his whole body, took his personal mech, and tanked the atatck for them.

Wiz: He got atomised of course, but by doing so, he managed to make a drill with the power of the Infinity Big Bang Storm, and gave it to TTGL to be absorbed.

Boomstick: That's when TTGL got even bigger, even epicker and even baddaser. It was... Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. Yeah, a rather anti-climactic name.

Wiz: By comparing his size to the Anti-Spiral, who was about as big as normal TTGL, we can conclude his foot has the height of the Anti-Spiral.

Boomstick: Dayum. And me who thought that DBZ had ridiculously high power-ups.

Wiz: Some say that would make him as big as the observable universe, but that would be a ludicrous claim.

Boomstick: I don't know if you guys know, but the observable universe is actually frigging huge. STTGL is the size of a galaxy cluster. At best.

Wiz: And when you know that super galaxy clusters contains dozens of them, and the observable universe contains dozens of super galaxy clusters... You get the picture. STTGL is still kind of small compared to it.

Boomstick: Nevertheless, he now has universal power thanks to LordGenome, in addition to his universal durability. Which logically should be equal to two universes now.

Wiz: Let's just say he can tank attacks that have the power to destroy a couple universes now.

Boomstick: Then, when he put all his power into his ultimate attack, Giga Drill Break, the clash with the Anti-Spiral generated enough mass and energy...

Wiz: And thus enough gravity.

Boomstick: ...to suck ALL the matter in the WHOLE universe.

Wiz: Pretty impressive indeed.

Boomstick: No need to say, that due to sheer size, he's several thousand times faster than the speed of light.

Wiz: There's also another piece of info we haven't covered yet: probability mainpulation.

Boomstick: Yknow, it has been stated and confirmed multiple times during the anime that the Anti-Spiral possesses probability manipulation is his own universe. Which is the one where their final fight happens.

Wiz: Due to this, the Anti-Spiral made his power to good use, and made sure that TTGL's chances of winning were equal to zero.

Boomstick: Buuuut, TTGL still won. What does that mean?

Wiz: That TTGL has even greater Probability manipulation powers than the Anti-Spiral.

Boomstick: Ain't that nifty.


Even when trapped in karma's cycle...

The dreams we left behind will open the door!

Even if the universe stands against us...

Our burning blood will cut through fate!

We'll break through heavens and the dimensions!

And defy all who would stop us to grab hold of our path!

TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN

JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE?!

Madoka Kaname[]

Wiz: In Makitahara city, there lived a group of young scholar girls.

Boomstick: With the most odd hairstyles and colour hair ever combined. Pink+kaki+blue. THE HELL!

Wiz: Welcome to anime Boomstick. The one we will be focusing on is the optimistic pink-haired girl named Madoka Kaname.

Boomstick: The basic story is, magic cat bladi bla, grants wishes bla, magical girls bla bla, horrible gruesome deaths bla bl-OOOOOOO What the fuck.

Wiz: Indeed, the little group of magical girls suffered quite a number of losses, including Madoka herself. But that was without counting on Homura Akemi, whose wish was to go back in time when she first met Madoka. By being granted this power, she reversed time as many times as she thought necesary in order to save Madoka.

Boomstick: Buuuuut there's two things you need to know about this:

1: In the end, what Homura was doing was pointless.

2: Her time meddling thingy had the side-effect of increasing the latent potential of Madoka herself-don't ask me why.

Wiz: Due to this, and because Homura went back in time more than we could count, Madoka has grown severely powerful. To the point of being able to re-write reality with her wish.

Boomstick: Oh yeah, she was like: "Causality? Logic? FUCK THAT!! The universe is gonna obey to my every order now!!"

Wiz: Her power goes even beyond that. First of all, she doesn't seem to be needing a Soul Gem anymore. The one she acquired when becoming a normal magical girl ended up breaking and creating the most powerful Witch to have ever existed.

Boomstick: But that didn't stop Madoka of blowing the shit out of her afterwards.

Wiz: Secondly, she was able to see and manipulate all the different timelines Homura created, making her a multiversal reality warper.

Boomstick: BUT WAIT!! THERE'S MORE!!

Wiz: In the latest movie named Rebellion, we see Homura stealing some power from Madoka when in her Goddess form. It was later stated that she only took a fraction of it.

Boomstick: And that fraction was enough to re-write the universe entirely. Again.

Wiz: Implying de facto that Madoka as a Goddess would be much more powerful than what she was portrayed as in the anime.

Boomstick: How do you get much more powerful than multiversal?

Wiz: Beats me.

Boomstick: You think that having all this power would make you invincible? Wrong answer! Even gods have weaknesses!

Wiz: Most of these weaknesses are revealed in the power-stealing scene from Rebellion. We can see that Madoka is still pretty naïve, and is nowhere near omniscient, as proven by the fact she didn't see Homura coming.

Boomstick: And that scene debunked the fact that conceptual beings couldn't be touched by mere mortals. Cuz at that point, Madoka became a concept of "hope". Didn't stop Homura from touching her and stealing her power.

Wiz: Basically, the power of a god in the possession of the heart of a child.


Kyubey: You are the center of karmic destiny from many different timelines, so no matter how enormous your wish it most definitely will come true.

Madoka: You sure it will?

Kyubey: Of course. Madoka Kaname, what is the wish which you would trade your soul for?

Madoka: I wish... I wish I had the power to erase witches before they are born! Every single witch; from the past, present, and future! Everywhere!

Kyubey: That wish! Once it's granted, it will unravel the fabric of time itself! It violates the laws of karmic destiny! Are you trying to become a god?!

Madoka: I don't care what I become. All the magical girls who believed in hope and fought witches...I don't want them to suffer or cry anymore. I want them to be at peace. And if that goes against the laws of the universe, then I'll just rewrite those laws. That's the only thing I want. It's what I wish for. Now, grant my wish, Incubator!

Fight[]

Death. The ultimate frontier. Or so some would think. There has been a legend about something, beyond Death. Something named… the Law of Cycles. It is said that something-or someONE- visits you before your death, and takes you somewhere paradisiac. This… isn’t a story about death. Or just a little.

The situation was bad. Very bad. They were losing. They couldn’t get to prevent this. The death of one of the members of the team. The Gurren Brigade finally emerged victorious, thanks to the sacrifice of one of the members of their team. Simon was in shock. He couldn’t believe he could let that happen. He… let down his team. The dying comrade was holding a strange-looking jewel, who was cracked.

??: Finally, I’ll get to see the Law of Cycles….

Simon : What did you say ?

??: I never told you, but secretely I was what people call a magical girl. That last attacked cracked my Soul Gem, on which my life depended on. It is time, for me to go…

Simon : Nooo !! I refuse to let you die like that, not while there’s a chance !!

??: There is no hope for me anymore, Simon. I’ll go to a better place… Look.

The sky turned suddenly pink, and a hole opened up in the sky with a set of stairs descending. A girl in light pink clothes entered the sky and slowly descended.

Madoka : Here, you don’t have to suffer anymore. You played your job well. Come with me now.

Madoka had such a compassionate voice and face that Simon was bewildered for a moment. He then let his rage engulf him.

Simon : NOT A CHANCE !! WE WILL NOT LET YOU TAKE ONE OF OUR OWN IF THERE’S STILL A CHANCE TO LIVE !!

The whole team cheered up.

Madoka : But, how can you go against such a natural thing as death and afterlife ? It isn’t anything to be afraid of, I guarantee you.

Simon : Don’t care ! WE WILL TAKE YOU DOWN !

Simon hoped into Lagann, and everyone proceeded to transform their mechs by fusing them together. Before too long, a robotic head pierced the galactic clouds of the Milky Way.

Simon : TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN, TO BATTLE !!!!

Madoka : Are you sure about this ? I don’t want you to get hurt.

Her voice was sincere. She sounded like a second mother.

TTGL : WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE ARE ?! WE FIGHT ARBITRARY CONCEPTS SUCH AS YOU, WE FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM ! WE SHALL TAKE YOU DOWN !!

Madoka sighed, and took her bow and arrow with resignation.

Madoka : So be it.

Fight!

Due to Madoka’s small size, TTGL at first had some hesitations on how to attack her, while not destroying the whole galaxy with her.

Madoka : I understand your concern. Let’s go somewhere else.

The pair suddenly teleported into some space with galaxies surrounding them, providing some light.

TTGL : Where… where the hell are we ?!

Madoka : In a shattered timeline, where life doesn’t exist anymore. You will have all the leisure to let out your frustration here.

TTGL : Don’t mind if we DO !!!

(Cue Fall into a trap, Kuroshitsuji)

TTGL let out a punch, that stopped on Madoka’s face, unfazed.

Madoka : You’re only making this harder for yourselves, why can’t you accept how things are ?

Madoka, with her bow, deflected TTGL’s fist and sent an arrow in his chest. He was sent flying, and he crash-landed in a galaxy.

TTGL : We won’t… accept things the way they are. NOT IF WE CAN MAKE THEM BETTER !! He came back to the charge and sent a kick towards Madoka. Again, it made contact, but didn’t faze her.

Madoka : You can’t make things better.

Madoka was saying it in a sad voice of sorts. She deflected the foot and sent TTGL crashing again.

TTGL : Oh yeah ?! WELL, WATCH US TRY !!

TTGL summoned drills and ran towards Madoka to duel her. She herself only used her bow to trade blows with him. She didn’t seem to be putting any effort into it.

Madoka : I wish someone could… make this world so much better. For everybody. For everything. But… Paradise is not a concept that applies to material life.

Madoka broke TTGL’s drills and sent him flying again.

TTGL : We… can’t lose hope. There is ALWAYS a way to make things better !

Madoka : That is… where you’re wrong. No matter how hard you try, there will always be a limit to what one can change. Even for Gods.

TTGL : BULLSHIT !!! WE OVERCAME OUR DIFFERENCES, WE OVERCAME THE ANTI-SPIRAL, AND SO, WE WILL OVERCOME DEATH !!!

TTGL’s Spiral power went flowing, engulfing the whole surroundings in green light and fiery aura. Madoka watched at the spectacle, visibly amazed at the colour and lighting of it.

Madoka : So pretty…

Her smile suddenly disappeared.

Madoka : Yet…

(Cue Kuroshitsuji second ending)

She charged another arrow, and sent it towards TTGL.

Madoka : Everything, in the end, dies. Only to become even more beautiful.

TTGL summons a giant drill.

TTGL : WE WON’T SURRENDER ! WE WILL PREVAIL !! OUR HOPE, WILL PIERCE THE HEAVENS !!! GIGA… DRILL… BREAK !!!

The two attacks collided, making the whole space-time continuum around shaking, producing gravitational waves that went on destroying galaxies. After a while, the drill cracked. In an instant, the clash ended and TTGL was defeated, and went flying even further than before. Madoka approached the giant mech, harbouring a kind smile on her face.

(Cue Underground, Kuroshitsuji)

Madoka : I know how you all feel. I myself was like that… before. I was offered a wish to do whatever I wanted. My wish was granted, and I was able to erase a whole concept from existence, a bad one. But… there are concepts that simply can’t be rid of. Such as death. I tried to find a way around it, truly, but there was no preventing it. Whatever solution I found, Death was there in a way or another. This is why, I finally decided to instead offer a happy afterlife for everyone to suffer from this incurable disease. This was the least I could do. This was…

TTGL : Bullshit.

Madoka : What ?

TTGL was slowly rising again, power ever increasing.

TTGL : Bullshit. How can you proclaim yourself a God, when you even stopped trying ?! A God is supposed to do everything in it’s power to help it’s subjects. And that, even if it takes eternity. You don’t just STOP trying. You don’t just STOP hoping. You CONTINUE. Until you find a solution. And if you don’t, then you still continue. This is why you’re unfit for your position. WE will find a way. WE will defeat death. And the first step to this… IS BEATING THE SHIT OUT OF YOU !!!!!!

TTGL attacked with a drill, and made contact with a surprised Madoka. This time, she was the one that was sent flying. She went even further than TTGL did on the last attack.

Madoka didn’t have any ill-will of TTGL’s persistence, she just felt sadder of what she had to do.

Madoka : I’ve seen things you can’t even fathom. I don’t expect you to understand my position. I understand your point of vue, trust me, but it sadly cannot be applied in any circumstance But I regretfully have to put an end to this.

Madoka started charging another arrow, one of a whole other scale, more than a universal scale, one that was guaranteed to put TTGL down for good.

Madoka : Again… I’m so sorry it has come to this. At least, you will be happy once you’re dead.

She launched her arrow, who eerily shot towards TTGL’s head.

TTGL : No… We cannot die now. We can’t let down the people of the universe. We just can’t…

TTGL knew they had no way of dealing with this. That’s when they saw someone stand in front of them.

(Cue Guren No Yamiya, Shingeki No Kyojin)

??: Remember your own words, Simon ? You can’t stop hoping. Not while there’s actually a chance.

Simon : That voice… it’s…

Nia : DAD !!!

LordGenome : Be sure to take care of the universe for me, Simon. In honour of my daughter.

Simon : I promise you. I will.

LordGenome : That’s all I need to hear.

LordGenome then proceeded to summon his own personal mech, and tanked Madoka’s attack.

Madoka : This is useless, you’re having false hopes. I don’t want you to suffer more than you are already.

LordGenome : Hehehe… Don’t you worry about me, little girl. Better worry about YOURSELF !!!

While LordGenome was suffering a quantum breakdown, he absorbed the energy of the arrow and changed it into Spiral power.

LordGenome : SIMON, TAKE IT !!!

TTGL grabed hold of the drill, and it dissolved into power in his hands and flowed through him. A blue aura started engulfing him, and he grew to even bigger sizes. He had become Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

STTGL : WE WILL NOT YIELD !!! NOT TILL THE VERY END !!! BECAUSE THAT’S WHO WE ARE !!! SUPER TENGEN TOPPA GURREN LAGANN, READY TO FINISH THIS OFF !!!

Madoka was surprised of the turn of events, but not worried.

Madoka : You only further the inevitable… You’re pushing yourselves too hard for something that cannot be done.

STTGL : WE WILL HAVE TO SEE ABOUT THAT !!!

STTGL swiped the whole galaxy cluster with his leg, sending Madoka flying away in another corner of the universe. He then came in and punched her repeatedly. He then punched her so hard she went through the fabric of the universe itself, and in another one.

Madoka : No, not this one… the lives that would be laid to waste… She didn’t have time to recover from her surprise that STTGL came in again and punched her through this universe too. This happened for a while, puncturing holes through a countless number of universes.

STTGL : WE NEED TO PREVAIL !! WE JUST NEED TO !! STOP GETTING IN OUR WAY !!!! He then punched her with even more force than before, making her traversing several universes at insane speeds. Madoka slowly got back up, no visible damage made on her, while STTGL was standing next to her. She had a worried face, like she was about to cry.

Madoka : No… All these lives… They could have gone on living for a good while… They didn’t need to die like that…

STTGL : YOU BROUGHT THIS ON YOURSELF. YOU SHOULDN’T HAVE ABANDONED THE FIGHT. NOW, LET US DO YOUR JOB.

Madoka’s face suddenly turned into resolve, a look similar of when she putting down her own witch.

Madoka : No… I can’t let you destroy any more innocent lives for the sake of a non-existent ideal. I will have to go full out on you, as much as I don’t like it.

STTGL : STOP BRAGGING, AND SHOW US WHAT A GOD CAN DO ALREADY !!!

STTGL punched and kicked Madoka as hard as he could, but Madoka was parring the blows with her bow, with the same effortless look on her face she had before.

Madoka : I won’t let my concentration slip this time. To protect those still alive. This rampage on universes will end… now. The scenery changed again. This time, there was nothing. Like, utterly nothing.

STTGL and Madoka were the only sources of light, and even then nothing was around.


STTGL : WHERE…. WHERE ARE WE ?!

Madoka : In the void between space, between universes, between MULTIVERSES… In nothingness. This is the truly empty space that lies between existence. This is the ultimate void. Where nothing has, does or ever will exist. Here, you can’t do any more harm to innocent people.

STTGL : I GUESS I’LL HAVE TO FIND AN EXIT ONCE I BEAT YOU !! COME HERE !!!

He charged Madoka, shouldering her. But this time, she didn’t faze. This time, STTGL was repulsed just as he was attacking. He then attempted a punch, but to no avail again.

Madoka : This is where it all ends for you. This… is where you fall.

Madoka took her bow and charged an arrow once again, but this time it was different. Unlike the pinkish colour the arrows had until now, it was now bright red. It grew big, big and ended being even bigger than STTGL itself.

STTGL : WHEN WILL YOU UNDERSTAND ?! NO MATTER THE ODDS, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, WE WILL WIN !! NOT BECAUSE WE CAN, NOT BECAUSE WE WANT, BUT BECAUSE WE NEED TO !!

STTGL summoned a drill that was 3 times as big as himself.

STTGL : NOW, PREPARE TO LOSE !!! GIGAAAAAA… DRRRRRIIIIIIL….. BREAAAAAAAAAK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He then shot towards Madoka.

Madoka : I… am so sorry for this.

A tear pearled on her face. The tear of a God. When the tear fell on her bow, she let the arrow go. In a flurry of flashy red-tinted colours, the arrow shot straight towards the drill. As both attacks came closer to each other, the sheer power of both of them was changing the non-existent space around them.

(Cue Murmur, Kuroshitsuji, for the duration of the flashbacks)

Flashbacks could be seen, both of the crew of STTGL and Madoka. The happy, the sad, the eventful, the boring. Everything was put to screen as the drill and the arrow rapidly approached at speeds so high it’s not even possible to begin to understand how fast they were. The distance-for what it was in a non-existent space of a non-existent dimension- was shrinking. 5 quintillion light years. 4. 3. 2. 1. And then…

Contact.

(Cue Crossing, Kuroshitsuji)

What happened when both attacks connected is probably not even conceivable. The closest explanation would be… multiversal collapse.

In a similar fashion to when Goku fought Beerus, the clash between the two immense powers produced something even greater than themselves. But unlike the fight between the Super Saiyan God and the God of Destruction, something was… controlling the event.

Despite the magnitude of the clash, no victims were accounted for. When going back into the clash, you couldn’t see anything. The non-existent dimension was lighted up with matter and energy, photons and atoms flying everywhere and anywhere.

If you could somehow make abstraction of the blinding light that was omnipresent, you could maybe distinguish two vague forms sliding on each other, fighting for control.

One blue, the other pink-red. You could see both ever growing bigger, just like what happens in nature : if you’re bigger, then you’re the predator, and the other is the prey.

They grew so big, that somehow, the non-existent universe couldn’t even contain them any more. No matter how weird a concept it was, it is still there.

However, you could see that… one of them was slow compared to the other. One of them just couldn’t keep up with the power of the other one. The winning colour was slowly enveloping the other one, and extinguishing it.

Soon, the light of the clash died down. Only the colours could be seen, one of them slowly getting smaller and smaller, until it was of a normal human size. The winning colour overwhelmed all over the non-existent dimension, and spoke :

Be in peace.

K.O!

In another place, an obscure figure was thinking to itself.

??: I have never seen that kind of power!!! I would gladly take it off her hands... There has to be some foolish human desire a deal can satisfy!!! And then... THE WHOLE OMNIVERSE AND IT'S 11 AND A HALF DIMENSIONS WILL BE MINE!!! MINE!!!! Haha, haha, haha... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

??: Sorry, demon, but this power could have more beneficial uses. You shall not have it, Madoka Kaname will make a contract with me first.

Results[]

Boomstick: OH MY FUCK!!!! EXACTLY THE LEVEL OF DESTRUCTION I NEEDED!!!

Wiz: Things were real bad for TTGL at first, since he was outclassed in everything by Madoka.

Boomstick: But that's when LordGenome came in, and... nearly flipped the table.

Wiz: While the power TTGL managed to absorb from Madoka was indeed of a very large scale and better than what they had with the Anti-Spiral, it was still unsufficient to actually put her down.

Boomstick: But Wiz, shouldn't... I dunno... TTGL WON VIA PROBABILITY MANIPULATION?!

Wiz: While TTGL's probability manipulation powers were very great indeed against the Anti-Spiral, Madoka is of a whole other league entirely. She can rewrite the multiverse as she sees fit, and can reality warp pretty much anything she'd like.

Boomstick: Looks like TTGL wasn't badass enough. Yet.

Wiz: The winner is Madoka Kaname.
