Samurai Jack Vs Captain America

Samurai Jack Vs Captain America

Suggested by GuardianAngel1911 with Mjolnir and the Kringleswor

A time storm hits two distant alternate versions of Earth and when it does one warrior from each world, each already lost through time are ripped from their world.

One is a time lost Samurai, a warrior with a mystical sword of great power, a symbol for hope and for a better future, his name Jack, Samurai Jack.

The other is a Soldier, a warrior with an indestructible shield, a symbol for Freedom, for Justice, his name Steve Rogers, Captain America (Marvel).

The warriors find themselves on an empty beach to the East stretches nothing but water far as can be seen, to the West, North, and South is clean white sand, a light breeze flows through the air as the warriors appear a mere fifty feet apart. A mysterious voice in the back of both their minds tells them that should they ever hope to return to their worlds they will destroy their foe without hesitation.

Cap readies his shield as Jack draws his sword, the ultimate clash of shield and sword is about to begin.

Weapon wise, Cap only has his shield, Jack only has his sword.

Who wins?

    hmmm.
    don’t think Jack’s blade can cut through captain’s shield.

  2. Hermit March 15, 2013 at 8:22 am -      #2

    Give Jack enough time, and he’ll cut through anything.

  3. WhiteHomie_777 March 15, 2013 at 8:29 am -      #3

    I doubt that captain will just stand there and block until finally Jack cuts through his shield.

  4. TheSorrow March 15, 2013 at 8:31 am -      #4

    Well we know the properties of Captain America’s shield (made out of a material that can nullify physical damage). Jack’s sword is a bit harder prove to be indestructible though. We know there are certain things he was incapable of cutting, such as the Scotsman’s Rune-Enchanted Sword. It has a definitive limit.

  5. WhiteHomie_777 March 15, 2013 at 8:33 am -      #5

    yes.
    Captain still wont win this fight with just blocking all time though.

  6. Hermit March 15, 2013 at 8:52 am -      #6

    Quite the opposite really. Jack will be the one to stand still and pray while Cap attacks (this was shown in the episode Jack and the Robots(?), the one where a scientist created four near indestructible robots designed solely for fighting Jack)
    .
    Not having much knowledge of Cap’s feats, I’m just going to list Jack’s accomplishments:
    .
    - Blocked gatling gun fire using his sword, and at close range
    - Survived reentry (albeit using a space suit that protected him from most, but not all, of the impact)
    - Being dive tackled by a 700 ton sumo wrestler, and came out of it relatively unharmed
    - Jump good (around 100 feet straight up, give or take)
    - Become invisible in daylight
    - Defeated, within the time it took a raindrop to fall six feet, six bounty hunters who had ample time to prepare. One of whom cuts raindrops falling from six feet in height, and another throws knives faster than bullets.

    Samurai jack is pretty fast as soon as his opponet blinks or gets distracted hes right there ready to cut his head off

  8. Awesome Assasin (with kung fu grip action and life like hair) March 15, 2013 at 9:23 am -      #8

    Im gonna go with samurai jack on this one.

    Cap is good. But Jack is a whole other class of badass.
    Cap is outmatched in speed, skill, and probaly strength as well.

    Also good job with the story guardian angel it was cool and entertaining

  9. Gluttonous-Behemoth March 15, 2013 at 9:29 am -      #9

    I’d be willing to say the sword can’t cut through Cap’s shield. Supposedly it can get just about anything, but we know from the Ultrabot’s Adamantium armor (no, I cannot compare it to Marvel Adamantium) that some things require more strength than Jack normally possesses, or are equally indestructible, like the Scotsman’s Runic Claymore.
    -
    From the first part of the three act pilot, you see the breadth of his training (never minding the anachronisms), and the last showing him coordinating a group of archaeologist dogs to set up effective defenses before taking on an army of robots by himself.
    -
    In Jack and the Scotsman, after meeting the titular scotsman, the two battle for several days continuously, before getting tired. Only a short while after they stop, they’ve refreshed enough to take on a small army.
    -
    In Jack and the Ultra-Robots, he is capable of fighting several (eight, if I remember right) robot assassins that possessed a different weapon, but couldn’t damage them without a strength upgrade from their creator. When he loses the enhancement device, he manages a literal Deus Ex Machina (not exactly uncommon in the show) and his Ancestors power him up and make his sword 11+ cttn/str.
    -
    Jack and the Astronauts
    Fought with a sword. In Space. Lit his sword on fire…In space.
    -
    Jack vs Demongo
    Fights a minion of Aku that can steal the essence of defeated warriors and summon them to fight. When the essence is defeated, it just returns to Demongo and can be summoned again moments later. He fights an army of highly skilled warriors that just come back each time he kills them. Eventually manages to figure how to defeat Demongo.
    -
    These are a few examples, and will add more when I can. I’ll also try to find decent videos of the episodes to provide proof.

    Samurai Jack = superhuman > Captain America = peak human

    Samurai Jack is too sword pro for the Cap he can fight milloins of shawdow warriors that do nothing but come back to life each time without getting tired. admit it CA fanboys. captain america’s outmatched

  14. Crimson Sentry March 15, 2013 at 11:40 am -      #14

    lol yea, the toonforce with Jack is wayyy too much for Captain to handle.

  15. CannibalisticCookie March 15, 2013 at 11:49 am -      #15

    Terrible terrible mismatch. Jack would eviscerate Cap blindfolded.

  16. GuardianAngel1911 Warden of Demonreach prison for Eldritch Abominations March 15, 2013 at 11:49 am -      #16

    not a Fanboy in the sense you mean but Cap is comic peak human and regularly makes fools of Superhumans. Fact of the matter is jumping and probably speed go to Jack. Skill and everything else is pretty even, Jack is fast but not faster than Spider-Man or Black Panther both Superhumans Cap has shown the ability to keep up with in a fight.
    Not taking a side one way or the other since I am the match suggestor, but don’t count Cap out too quickly.

  17. The Expert March 15, 2013 at 11:56 am -      #17

    That is nice and all, but keeping up with people he shouldn’t is hardly feats. It’s just plot, Jack has the better feats.

    as for this, a fan of both characters said Cap was near to dead even toJack when I suggested this. so I sugg you Jack defenders put up feats or shut the fuck up about it being a stomp

    this is factpile, prove Jack stomps if you can or stop saying stomp. simple as that.

    “actually I don’t like seeing fanboys claim their character stomps and not back it up

    -
    A. Fangirl
    B. Didn’t think I needed to prove something when someone has already brought up some of Jack’s feats. Including the key one.
    -
    Quoting Hermit: “- Defeated, within the time it took a raindrop to fall six feet, six bounty hunters who had ample time to prepare. One of whom cuts raindrops falling from six feet in height, and another throws knives faster than bullets.”
    -
    That is the video I showed.
    -
    Now rather than take credit for this from the person deserving I will quote Sauroposeidon from Samurai Jack vs Afro Samurai: “Here is an excellent case where you can see that something has intentionally been slowed down. The fight is depicted at a speed we can appreciate, instead of the instant blur it would have been if observed at normal speed. Observe the water drops. They take something in the range of half a second to drop. Our ability to perceive and react to things is almost uniformly above 0.2 seconds, and at 0.13 seconds, the average frame rate, we are unable to tell that what we are watching is not a mere succession of pictures.
    -
    Keep those facts in mind as I go over this.
    -
    The fight begins at the 27 second mark, as the water drop begins to fall. The water lands at the 58 second mark. Both of these, essentially, right on the dot.
    -
    If it takes the water roughly 0.5 seconds to fall, then the span of that fight was, in effect, actually only half a second in length.
    -
    This means that each second in that fight was roughly around 0.016 of a second.
    -
    Many times we see him perform actions in only a fraction of a second. This means that much of what he does is being performed at mere hundredths and thousandths of a second.”

    “Captain America isn’t the type to just charge in blindly. He is arguably one of the best tacticians in the Marvel Universe.”
    .
    Jack also isn’t one to charge blindly, he’s more likely to react and kill you after you’ve done something wrong.
    .
    The way I see this battle, I can imagine Jack and Cap standing on opposite ends of the beach, waiting for the other to attack.
    (Hours later)
    It was getting harder to stand, but they need to stay alert, any moment now and their opponent might strike, and they didn’t want to be caught unawares.
    (Hours more later)
    Fatigue was starting to set in, their feet were tired, their hands were cramped, and seriously it was getting boring staring at the face of one person for an entire day, but they cannot let even one moment slip, or it might be the end of them.
    (Sunrise)
    Eyebags forming, sweat glistening their bodies, and their weapons at their sides. They were exhausted, and hungry, and bored. They were mentally begging the other to attack, just so they could do something other than wait. Curse their creators for making them so tactical/passive.
    (Sunset again)
    They had finally elected to sit down. Neither one let down his guard though, this just might be the opportunity for a sneak attack.
    (Sunrise)
    They had fallen asleep, and they didn’t even notice. Suddenly both shot up and were instantly on the alert, wary of the other.
    (Hours later)
    It was getting harder to stand, but they need to stay alert, any moment now and their opponent might strike, and they didn’t want to be caught unawares.

    Samuai Jack I think loses. His sword can not be used to harm good. Unless this stipulation is removed, it will deflect off Captain America as if he were made of a substance even tougher than Vibranium.

  31. GuardianAngel1911 Warden of Demonreach prison for Eldritch Abominations March 15, 2013 at 1:17 pm -      #31

    crap forgot to add that to the scenario.
    yes Jacks sword can work on Cap.

  32. Gluttonous-Behemoth March 15, 2013 at 1:22 pm -      #32

    In Jack and the Scotsman part two, Jack is challenged to a rock throwing contest in order to obtain the blessing of SM’s clan’s druid so that the two could go rescue his wife. At first he seems to struggle, unable to throw a rock very far. Then he asks how much one of the clansmen weighs before almost effortlessly tossing him as far as the further rock was thrown. The man claimed he weighed “twenty stone”. A stone is about six Kilos. The man jack tossed a very long distance weighed some 280 pounds. That’s not bad.

  33. Gluttonous-Behemoth March 15, 2013 at 1:24 pm -      #33

    @Sauro
    Technically the line goes “In the hand of evil it cannot harm an innocent”. Same difference though, if stipulation requires, Jack can use a number of other means to fight.

  34. Crimson Sentry March 15, 2013 at 2:12 pm -      #34

    @GuardianAngel
    no offense man but there have been plenty of feats given for jack, in fact it is the Cap that doesn’t not have the feats for far in the thread. However, if you go to the official marvel wiki (the one run by marvel) it gives you literally what captain america can do, it says he can bench 800 lbs and all the rest of that crap. If samerai Jack wasn’t toon force this wouldn’t be a stomp but since he has toonforce feats its pretty hard to go with the captain here, is there a particular incarnation of the caption you wish to use (that might helps your odds a bit).

    “Jack also isn’t one to charge blindly, he’s more likely to react and kill you after you’ve done something wrong.”

    Initially your argument was contingent upon Cap attacking first.

    “if you go to the official marvel wiki (the one run by marvel) it gives you literally what captain america can do”
    -
    The wiki itself isn’t always the best place to gets feats. It’s also often outdated and the power grid has squirrel girl as a lightspeed, Omniscient, virtually indestructible, energyy manipulating, +100 tonner, master martial artist.
    I’m one for squirrel girl jokes but come on.
    -
    Regardless I do think Jack still wins. Speed and agility seem to be on Jack’s side, he should be able to dodge Caps throws, or incase he does gets hit he could probably take a hit from cap as well.

  37. Nomad March 15, 2013 at 2:44 pm -      #37

    “Regardless I do think Jack still wins.”
    -
    I agree with this. I just don’t think it’s as much as a stomp as first made out to be.

  38. Amm0vamp1r3 March 15, 2013 at 5:01 pm -      #38

    I think jack takes this personally
    -
    I mean up close I have seen better for jack and he has an offensive weapon, faster, strenght wise I don’t know. But yea i think everything has been covered enough

  39. Aelfinn March 15, 2013 at 6:41 pm -      #39

    Guys, Jack isn’t super-toon-force or anything. There’s Bugs Bunny, but Jack ain’t no Bugs Bunny, that’s for sure.
    -
    I have also seen scans of Captain America dodging bullets (not on this thread, mind, but I am unable to give them as of now), so he is certainly very fast. “Peak Human” in comics effectively equates to “superhuman” in real life. Now, the rain-drop scene is a very good one, but this is closer than people think.
    -
    Although, Jack’s ability to become invisible in sunlight obviously gives him an advantage, but he has to take the time to actually wrap himself up in the white clothes. He may not have such an opportunity here.

    I had this really cool post lined up…then I accidentally closed the tab.
    -
    Anyway, Jack and Cap are equals in nearly all aspects (I doubt Cap can jump that good).
    .
    Unless I can see Cap dodge machine gun fire, I’m going to have to give Jack a slight advantage in reaction time though. While Cap can dodge bullets, Jack parries gatling gun fire one-handed.
    .
    Hey, now that I think about it, the episode where Jack learned to “jump good” can also be a good strength feat.
    .
    I mean, carrying (and later running with) a rock that must have weighed a tonne while having other heavy rocks strapped to your limbs is no easy task.

    Used to watch a lot samurai jack, jacks sword is forged by heaven or gods if I’m not wrong. It’s just a title but he can dodge laser and casually deflect hypersonic attacks with his sword .

    Hulk throws the shield and Cap avoids the blow, not sure how fast that is but still.

    “Used to watch a lot samurai jack, jacks sword is forged by heaven or gods if I’m not wrong. It’s just a title but he can dodge laser and casually deflect hypersonic attacks with his sword .”
    -
    It was forged by, if I’m not mistaken, Horus, Odin, and Shiva. Odin is pretty obvious, and my girl claims that was Horus.. so.. blame her if it’s not. I couldn’t care less about middle eastern and north african culture. And the last, I’m guessing Shiva due to the multi-armed nature of the God. The three pose as monks on a mountain above the clouds. Jack’s father is brought there by Odin’s steed, and he witnesses the creation of the sword, who’s metal is cast from the essence of what makes him Good. It is basically “good incarnate” in tangible form. Unbreakable, and the only thing that Jack has not been able to destroy with it has been the Scottsman’s magic sword.. who’s origins are never given. It is the only thing that can hurt Aku, aside from the Gods themselves, who originally defeated him in his chaotic, infant state deep in the cosmos. Jack likely can not break vibranium on his strength alone, but he does have the ability to make himself stronger. Essentially, if enough force is applied, he should be able to break the shield.. but I don’t know if even in their fiercest states, even if the were both swinging as hard as they could, if they could cleave the shield in two.
    -
    Jack’s fight against the Scotsman is a good indicator of his abilities when he’s really pushed. I know I linked to it on the Samurai Jack vs Afro Samurai thread, on the last page, I think. We get to see his parrying and striking speed, as well as endurance from days of fighting. That and the whole episode in general is a good one. Very funny.

    Caps shield has uru in it now, the stuff Mjolnir is made of, may absorb any magic energy applied to it just like it would kinetic energy.

    it’s been a while since I’ve seen the episode but one had Jack fighting the minions of Set and Ra made a point of coming down to pwn them, Ra and Set are always shown as enemies,
    and according to the wiki samuraijack.wikia.com/wiki/Ra
    it was Ra, and the Hindu one was Vishnu

  50. Sauroposeidon March 16, 2013 at 12:52 pm -      #51

    “Caps shield has uru in it now, the stuff Mjolnir is made of, may absorb any magic energy applied to it just like it would kinetic energy.”
    -
    The sword does not generate magical energy to my knowledge, it was merely created magically. It has magical properties to it, obviously, such as being able to cut through pure evil like Aku like tissue paper, while being useless on the innocent, but I don’t think that qualifies. I think the Vibranium is what will be keeping the shield intact.
    -
    I suspect this match was suggested because the two weapons are unbreakable, rendering them unable to break each other. Thus forcing the two to actually fight instead of relying on sundering the other’s gear.

  51. GuardianAngel1911 Warden of Demonreach prison for Eldritch Abominations March 16, 2013 at 12:59 pm -      #52

    When he called on the might of his ancestors to break that Adamantium didn’t the sword glow with some kind of aura? Or am I misremembering? That’s what I was referring to. Still makes the shield a wee bit more indestructible though. Unless your Thor, who has casually crumbled Uru before.
    -
    Well I put the thread on the topia because I noticed Cap didn’t have many fights, neither did Jack really, so I decided one guy who uses only a sword vs one guy who uses only a shield, both items indestructible, both guys far above normal human capabilities, G-B and..I believe, OriginalA, and Amm0 said it was good. So I suggested it. The battlefield I just wanted as neutral as possible so I went with a flat endless beach.

  52. Praetor Prefect (who knows where his towel is) March 16, 2013 at 1:09 pm -      #53

    Jack seems like he has the skill to take this, but the vibranium vs sword aspect could make it difficult to win.
