This first version of the death battle meme template belongs to Death-Driver-5000 and is dedicated to everybody who loves a magnificent smackdown between The Splendid Seven consisting of Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran from my Inuyasha AU headcanon and The Bodybuilder Brigade consisting of Ulrich Wernerstein and his bodybuilder cronies from Totally Spies. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the sight of blood being spewed, fists and feet flying, joints locking, and a whole lot of explosive action in the arena.

Ladies and gentlemen, martial arts tournaments aficionados of all ages, welcome once again to this all-out hand-to-hand death battle between seven powerful Yokai martial artists and a band of über hulking bodybuilder goons. When I was assigning fighting game mentors to Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran, I became more fascinated with upping the stakes of this particular death battle, especially with the mentors and styles I had in store for all the Splendid Seven members, as well as the overall brutality of what The Splendid Seven can deliver under their respective fighting game mentors’ tutelage, guidance, and inspiration. It seems that Ulrich and his goons better work harder to ensure that they overpower these seven Yokai martial artists. However, it seems like the odds are not in these bulky muscle-heads’ favours because there is a high probability that they will get mercilessly creamed by the seven Yokai warrior martial artists. At least the best part of this death battle is Alex not needing any of Ulrich’s Bulky Bars to not stop him and his goons while enjoying the show with her darling hunky boyfriend Raymond and her spy soul sisters Sam and Clover. Therefore, Raymond, Alex, Sam, and Clover are going to cheer Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran on with much gusto.

Ulrich and his bodybuilder goons dressed as they are in “The Incredible Bulk” can bash, smash, crush, and crash The Splendid Seven with headlocks, joint-locks, throws, and bearhugs to their hearts’ content. This is because, aside from being bodybuilders, Ulrich’s and his goons’ bulking muscles give them all the power to deliver all the blows they can to The Splendid Seven and could give any professional wrestler a run for their money. However, just as Ulrich and his bodybuilder brigade thought they were done with The Splendid Seven, the seven Yokai martial artists emit a dark chuckle and a laugh that sends chills down their overgrown spines. Muscles are never going to be enough for Ulrich and his bodybuilder brigade to overcome The Splendid Seven by any stretch of the imagination.

Sesshoumaru is a world champion in Shotokan, Kyokushin, Mixed Martial Arts, Marine Corps Martial Arts, Brazilian Jujitsu, Japanese Jujitsu, Ansatsuken, Mishima Style Fighting Karate, Thunderfoot Style Martial Arts, Kyokengryu Karate, and Hybrid Martial Arts that combine Karate, Judo, Jujitsu, Wrestling, and Boxing whose jabs, uppercuts, hooks, roundhouse kicks, spinning back kicks, shin kicks, and submission holds mean that he is a powerful and deadly fighter who shows no mercy. Exceptionally trained by Gouken, T. Hawk, Charlie Nash, Ryu Hoshi, Kazuya Mishima, Ryo Sakazaki, and Robert Garcia, Sesshoumaru shows no mercy nor hesitation in delivering every blow that can cause severe collateral damage to the entire body, the nervous system, and the psyche. To honour his mentors, Sesshoumaru goes topless revealing his muscular torso, dons white karate gi pants that have red and gold flame designs as well as a martial arts black belt around his waist, and dons red fingerless gloves and red foot guards. Gouken, T. Hawk, Charlie, Ryu, Kazuya, Ryo, and Robert appreciate just how fiercely determined Sesshoumaru is to honour his code as a warrior and turn his enemies into mincemeat and mash with all of his strength, stealth, and stamina, especially where Gouken, T.Hawk, Charlie, Ryu, and Kazuya are considered to be Sesshoumaru’s most esteemed mentors of all time.

Inuyasha is a world champion in Taekwondo, Hapkido, Pankration, Ancient Greek Wrestling, Ancient Greek Boxing, Kapu Kuialua, Bokator, Ansatsuken, Mishima Style Fighting Karate, Marine Corps Martial Arts, and Hybrid Martial Arts combining Karate, Hapkido, Taekwondo, Judo, Wrestling, Boxing, and Jujitsu whose uppercuts, hooks, jabs, cross punches, spinning back kicks, takedowns, and submission holds demonstrate that he is a brutal and ruthless fighter who holds nothing back. Exceptionally trained by Akuma, Guile, Alex, Ken Masters, Paul Phoenix, Terry Bogard, and Andy Bogard, Inuyasha is brutality, super strength, and never-ending endurance incarnate, given how his visceral takedowns have seen his handsomely muscular torso be bathed in his opponents’ blood. He even claims that his rock-hard body being drenched in his opponents’ blood gives him strength and euphoria because he has worked really hard to knock them down with his great range of punches, kicks, strikes, and submission holds. Speaking of muscular torso, Inuyasha is topless, dons red gi pants as well as a black martial arts belt around his waist, and dons black fingerless gloves and black foot guards. Akuma, Guile, Alex, Ken, Paul, Terry, and Andy really love how Inuyasha goes all in with giving his enemies a great crushing, mashing, and smashing, and he is especially close to his most favourite mentors Akuma, Guile, Alex, Ken, and Paul.

Shuran is a world champion in Sumo Wrestling, Mongolian Wrestling, Professional Wrestling, Ssireum, Turkish Oil Wrestling, Pehlwani, Malla-yuddha, Brazilian Jujitsu, Sambo, and Vale Tudo whose palm strikes, bearhugs, Full Nelsons, Boston Crabs, chokeholds, lifts, drops, and takedowns show that he is a formidable and harsh fighter who never skimps on the brutal takedowns with all of his might and strength. Exceptionally trained by E. Honda, Zangief, Hugo, Darun, Blanka, Ganryu, and Akatsuki-Maru, Shuran is akin to a mightily built and well-oiled tank ready to annihilate, obliterate, and destroy enemy forces without respite. He would even be more than willing to bring his enemies to the ground, which he proudly considers it to be his territory, with a bodyslam, a chokehold, an arm bar, a joint lock, a headlock, and palm strikes galore to the face, the chest, and the stomach in order to incapacitate them. Shuran is topless, dons a green mawashi with a green fundoshi underneath, green and gold wristbands, green and gold ankle bands, and is barefoot. E. Honda, Zangief, Hugo, Darun, Blanka, Ganryu, and Akatsuki-Maru are truly blessed to see Shuran thrive as a great grappler, and Shuran is especially grateful to have Zangief, E. Honda, Hugo, Darun, and Ganryu as his most beloved mentors of all time who have helped reach his true potential as a great wrestler and an equally great person.

Hakkaku is a world champion in Muay Thai, Pradal Serey, Kajukenbo, Panantukan, Dambe, Moraingy, Taekkyeon, Boxing, Karate, Taekwondo, and Bushinryu whose clinches, knee strikes, elbow strikes, head-butts, axe kicks, roundhouse kicks, shin kicks, jabs, uppercuts, and cross punches highlight his tenacity, speed, and resilience as a fighter who brims with excitement and toughness. Exceptionally trained by Sagat, Dhalsim, Balrog, Dan Hibiki, Guy, Bruce Irvin, and Joe Higashi, Hakkaku is akin to a well-furnished machine gun prepared to put his enemies on their knees and submit to what he has to offer them. He would be really glad to show them to the door of perdition by courtesy of his signature shin kicks, elbow strikes, knee strikes, and head-butts, as he is also practices Muay Thai’s more brutal ancestor Muay Boran, which are enough to put every single opponent in a world of ballistic head traumas and bloodied bruises beyond the eye can see. Hakkaku is topless, dons forest green Muay Thai shorts, has forest green pra jiads on his biceps, wears white hand wraps, and is adorned with forest green ankle wraps. Sagat, Dhalsim, Balrog, Dan, Guy, Bruce, and Joe are absolutely enthusiastic to have Hakkaku under their wing just as Hakkaku is really happy to have his seven mentors in his life as a fighter who specialises in strikes and clinches, especially when it comes to admiration to Sagat, Balrog, Dan, Bruce, and Joe.

Ginta is a world champion in Lethwei, Pencak Silat, Sanda, Hwa Rang Do, Tang Soo Do, Eagle Claw Kung Fu, Systema, Muay Thai, Taekwondo, Boxing, Jeet Kune Do, Kickboxing, and Shaolin Kung Fu whose clinches, knee strikes, elbow strikes, head-butts, shin kicks, knife hands, axe kicks, speed punches, uppercuts, jabs, and uppercuts emphasise his avidness, excitement, and vigour as a fighter who radiates with rapidness and high energy. Exceptionally trained by Adon, Dee Jay, Fei Long, Vega, Cody Travers, Lei Wulong, and Kim Kaphwan, Ginta is akin to a rapid-firing bayonet well conditioned to make invaders and enemies drop like crashing planes and sinking ships. He would be more than grateful to provide his foes an invitation to his speedy attacks be they head-butts, shin kicks, gut punches, knee strikes, and/or elbow strikes which are enough to leave them knocked out cold. Ginta is topless, dons white hand wraps, wears brown Lethwei shorts with diamond and dragon designs, and adorned with white ankle wraps. Adon, Dee Jay, Fei Long, Vega, Cody, Lei, and Kim are really ecstatic to have someone as charming and fun as Ginta under their tutelage, and Ginta is just as happy to have all seven of his mentors in his life who have helped be the great fighter he is, especially Adon, Dee Jay, Fei Long, Lei, and Kim.

Ayame is a world champion in Kickboxing, Nippon Kenpo, Shorinji Kenpo, Boxing, Judo, Krav Maga, Sambo, Shaolin Kung Fu, Aikido, Karate, Koppojutsu, army-based martial arts specifically Delta Red’s Special Forces Training, and assassination-based martial arts whose roundhouse kicks, axe kicks, shin kicks, front kicks, tornado kicks, spinning back kicks, jabs, uppercuts, hooks, cross punches underline how powerful, fierce, and fearless she is as a formidable fighter with nerves of steel, fists of iron, and feet like jets. Exceptionally trained by Chun-Li, Cammy White, Sakura Kasugano, Nina Williams, Jun Kazama, Mary “Blue Mary” Ryan, and Mai Shiranui, Ayame embodies determination to keep reaching the higher ground as a warrior and dedication to her love of the martial arts with every single fibre of her being. Her repertoire of punches, kicks, and the occasional grapple should be crystal clear that Ayame means serious business when it comes to taking down all of her foes. Ayame has her hair down with her signature iris on her right, has a thin red headband; dons a sleeveless red turtleneck thong leotard, red spiked elbow bands, red boxing gloves, red shinguards, and red foot-wraps. Chun-Li, Cammy, Sakura, Nina, Jun, Blue Mary, and Mai are totally stoked to call Ayame their most beloved protégé of all time, while Ayame admires all of her mentors, with Chun-Li, Cammy, Sakura, Nina, and Jun being the mentors she admires the most with all her heart.

Shunran is a world champion in Capoeira, Shaolin Kung Fu, Wing Chun, Wushu, Baguazhang, Changquan, Northern Praying Mantis, Koppojutsu, Kickboxing, Ninjutsu, and assassination-based martial arts whose axe kicks, roundhouse kicks, front kicks, spinning back kicks, flash kicks, butterfly twist round kicks, shuriken corks, foot sweeps, tornado kicks, cart full swipe knives, backfists, and knife hands display how agile, quick, and focused she is as a physically flexible fighter with viper-like lethalness, bullet-like speed, and punishing pivots. Exceptionally trained by Elena, Ibuki, Karin Kanzuki, Anna Williams, Michelle Chang, Athena Asamiya, and Li Xiangfei, Shunran embodies craftiness to lure her enemies to her trap before punishing them with her lethal strikes and vivacity to keep her physical agility alive and well. Her huge repertoire of kicks, foot sweeps, flips, and hand strikes makes Shunran defy all gravity and would make any physics expert head spin in terms of how impossible it is to pivot such moves like Shunran and bear such quick reaction time. Shunran has her down with her two signature light pink flowers on each side of her hair; dons a light green sleeveless tank top with a pink floral design that exposes her midriff, pink fingerless gloves, light green Capoeira pants also with a pink floral design, and pink foot guards. Elena, Ibuki, Karin, Anna, Michelle, Athena, and Li are indubitably amazed at Shunran’s unparalleled abilities at combining Capoeira’s dance-like movements with Kung Fu’s, Wing Chun’s, and Wushu’s fierceness and lethalness, while Shunran is just as joyous to have seven mentors to help her reach her potential as their most beloved student, with Elena, Ibuki, Karin, Anna, and Michelle being the ones she loves the most.

The fighting game mentors massage each of their protégés just to make sure that they are well-conditioned and remind them what their opponents’ weaknesses are. Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran shoot an icy look at Ulrich and his bodybuilder goons that spell death, despair, and destruction. Once The Splendid Seven’s fighting game mentors are done massaging their protégés and having some last pieces of advice for them, they stand up and demonstrate how much serious business they really mean. Sesshoumaru throws an uppercut, a roundhouse kick, while shouting his Kiai, and gets into his Karate stance with a growl. Inuyasha throws a right jab, a left jab, a spinning back kick, while shouting his Kiai, and gets into his Taekwondo stance with a growl. Shuran does his Sumo Wrestling steps, cracks his knuckles, throws two palm strikes, and lets out a huge battle cry while beating his chests. Hakkaku throws elbow strikes, knee strikes, shin kicks, and gets into his Muay Thai stance letting out a huge battle cry. Ginta throws elbow strikes, knee strikes, shin kicks, head-butts, and gets into his Lethwei stance also letting out a huge battle cry. Ayame throws a jab, uppercut, spinning back kick combo and gets into her Kickboxing stance complete with snarl. Shunran throws a flash kick, foot sweep, tornado kick combo and gets into her Capoeira stance complete with a snarl. If what Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran have to offer Ulrich and his bodybuilder goons did not scare them, I do not know what will.

Ulrich and his bodybuilder goons may think they could rely on their muscles and grappling to take The Splendid Seven down, but they have another thing coming. Sesshoumaru and Inuyasha are both excellent strikers, grapplers, and clinchers who are extremely adept standing and on the ground complete with brutal takedowns that would see both Inu brothers beating them up to a bloody pulp as well as being bathed in their blood, especially when it comes to their signature chokehold and showering punches combo. Shuran is a thorough grappler who could choke, headlock, and joint-lock them with ease. Hakkaku and Ginta are strikers and clinchers who can elbow, knee, and shin kick the absolute life out of Ulrich and his bodybuilder goons. Ayame is a striker whose huge repertoire of punches can leave them bruised and battered. Shunran is a striker whose repertoire of kicks and flips can leave them thoroughly incapacitated. At this rate, Ulrich and his bodybuilder goons better be prepared for a series of ballistic head traumas, internal bleeding, sense loss, and a whole bunch of brutalities awaiting them, considering that The Splendid Seven have the best fighting game mentors who have made them into extremely formidable tanks.

I would also love to hear from you. Which group do you think will win? The Splendid Seven consisting of Sesshoumaru, Inuyasha, Shuran, Hakkaku, Ginta, Ayame, and Shunran who have been trained by some powerful hand-to-hand fighting game warriors who have turned them into deadly martial arts machines? Or The Bodybuilder Brigade who might have a chance to overpower the seven Yokai martial artists with their mighty muscles? Comment below and let me know.

I hope you all enjoy this revamped death battle idea as much as I enjoy writing my ideas for this. Tune in next time for another submission. Take care, stay safe, and keep the fighting spirit up, everybody.
