Thanks to NK for giving us this idea a while back, we're going to be creating this post to document the Top 20 longest battles featured here on the wiki. Here are some things to keep in mind:
- We are aware that quantity does not equal quality, however it is without a doubt that one is far more... quantifiable than the other. This blog is merely to celebrate those dedicated enough to write lengthy stories for their fights.
- We count the amount of words you use, not characters. This is simply to keep the word counts to a reasonable number.
- Only fight sections are included. We will not include the length of analyses or results when determining the length of a fight. Furthermore, fluff such as music cues are removed when counting words.
- Please don’t be discouraged if your fight does not make it onto the list. As mentioned before, quantity does not equal quality. If you prefer the quality of fights, you can turn to our annual Death Battle Fanon Wiki Awards.
- This list is not set in stone by any means! If you write a battle you think is long enough to be on this list, please post a link to it in the comments for our Staff Team to review. If it’s long enough, we will promptly edit the blog to accommodate.
With all that out of the way, let’s turn to our Top 20 Longest Battles on the Wiki!
