    What feats does Diablo bring to the table?

  2. StealthRanger April 17, 2013 at 8:08 am -      #2

    What the above said, any relevant feats of strength, speed, durability, destructive capacity for Diablo?

    hmmm, i think hellboy is screwed over here, depending on what form of Dialo this is

    Diablo for sure, without a doubt.

    Also what level difficulty is Diablo on? easy-hell? cuz if it’s Hell difficulty then diablo is pretty much resistant to everything. Actually I think Hell difficulty is canon.

  7. Crimson Sentry April 17, 2013 at 10:29 am -      #7

    Another thing to remember is that the most recent incarnation of diablo easily defeated Imperius, so you can use his feats to boost diablos in this fight.

    while hellboy is pretty awesome, and im pretty sure he is 100% fire resistant, which would help, diablo is just too big and tough

    Diablo for the factpile award

    If Diablo is not significantly faster than Hellboy, he should be getting shot a few times. We must therefore call his durability into question.

    -He’s not fireproof in the comic, if I remember rightly.

    At peak? Anung Un Rama is the end of all things. He utterly rapes without question. He has full control over all forms of magic and mastery over demons/super natural.

    Simple old Hellboy who just wants to hang out at a baseball game? He should still be more powerful than all those rogues, sorcerers and warriors that killed diablo considering his mortal form isn’t that impressive.

    @soulerous
    lemme ask you a question really quick, do you think a level 60 barbarian from Diablo could not beat hell boy?
    -
    Thats pretty much the level it takes to defeat diablo in hell difficulty, unless you decide to be cheap or team fight him in diablo 3. I’m sure we could do calcs if we wanted to for diablo but I think its a waste of time considering the force that is needed to explode a large demon in almost one hit is extreme, hell boy usually defeats powerful enemies through pis and the like, he is durable as hell ;P, but diablo is in the league of someone from mid tier marvel.

  14. Crimson Sentry April 17, 2013 at 12:34 pm -      #14

    This is just an assumption in terms of strength for a level 60 barbarian, but i’m going to guess around a 2 thousand pound bench press, diablo is able to take repeated two-handed weapons blows from said barbarian whos armor and axe are both heavily imbued with magic. Hellboy is limited on ammo as well.

    -Considering I have not played Diablo and must therefore assume a level 60 barbarian to be only a really strong mortal with expert fighting skills and some magical equipment, then yes, I do think one could not beat Hellboy. Not that it would prove the victor of this match one way or the other.

    Imperius vs Diablo. Diablo flung Imperius far and hard enough for his collision to damage a stone pillar, and at 2:22 he seems to exhibit powerful telekinesis. He could kill Hellboy rather easily I think, but the latter may be able to attack first via his gun.

  16. Crimson Sentry April 17, 2013 at 1:04 pm -      #16

    Hellboy could attack with his gun, however, I odn’t think it would hurt diablo in the least, when he’s resilient enough to take tons of two handed hacks from a 6 foot long two handed weapon, and considering hell level diablo is essentially immune to all elements up to like 90% the explosive would be negligible, really the shrapnel would probably hurt worse, also diablo in diablo 3 is roughly 3 times the height of the 7-8 foot tall barbarian which puts him around 20-24 feet tallish.

  17. Crimson Sentry April 17, 2013 at 1:09 pm -      #17

    @soulerous
    also if you want to use the cinematic, a heavely weapon barely scratched diablo and diablo destroyed the gates of heaven with just his voice.

    Where on Earth did you get this number from? I played all 3 games and read 1 book and the Diablo 3 short on the Barbarians and they have never alluded to any human in the game being a class 2. 800-1200lbs maximum and even then I’m not convinced.
    -
    “lemme ask you a question really quick, do you think a level 60 barbarian from Diablo could not beat hell boy?”
    -
    No cause Hellboy has guns and grenades. I don’t care if its a level 120 BB a modern soldier with an M-4 would still put him in the dirt. They are still humans at the end of the day.
    -
    Plus your putting game mechanics into this. Diablo takes what he takes because this is a video game and in video games enemies take a lot more then they would in the novelizations due to gameplay purposes. Not saying Hellboy can defeat Diablo but he’s a lot tougher then most of Diablo’s enemies being bulletproof and all that.

    -That’s why I said his durability needs to be questioned. More specifically, it needs to be proven that he can tank something like a bullet shot.

    And yes, game mechanics have no place here.

    @redrum
    Yes I did pull that number out of my ass, however, there is no fluff in diablo besides the games themselves, considering the books follow the games. Also the demon hunter class has bombs and shoots explosive rounds.
    In my opinion there is no way hellboy could beat a level 60 barbarian, the barbarian has regeneration in addition to being able to summon spirits and all kinds of bs, in fact (using game mechanics because the barbarians abilities are not portrayed any where else) a barbarians regen is on par with wolverines except that if he takes a fatal wound he dies, but most barbarians at level 60 can regenerate their entire health pool (life) in 10-20 seconds. If we can’t use game mechanics in a diablo fight I don’t think there is anyway to 100% qualify diablos combat potential.
    -
    I mean to be honest I think the game mechanics are essential because how can you make a calc? otherwise everything is pure speculation that can’t be proven.

    -That’s the downside to some characters. However, not everything in a game is game mechanics.

    @redrum
    here is a direct quote from Jay Wilson on the “Denizens of Diablo” Panel:
    “This is actually the same individual from Diablo 2. He’s aged twenty years, and he’s got a personality in this game. Look at his gear; his [[armor]] has points on which he could impale himself. It’s extra protection for the harsh environment, but it’s also dangerous to him. The day to day life characters lead in this world is very hard. With the Barbarian, we had to updating a classic.
    The Barbarian was exciting for us to work on — to take a classic char we all love to play and bring him back to life. What’s this guy been doing for the past 20 years? This guy’s 8 feet tall and 300 lbs of pure muscle. He saw things during the events of Diablo II that would have killed most people, but he’s still around. In D3 we aged him, grayed his hair, gave him some scars. We think those elements help sell the story visually. Signs of age, how he wears his armor. All that helps us tell the story visually.”

    -
    So I do apologize then he should be lifting about what redrum stated, like I said I was throwing numbers around, this is literally the only lore on his physical stats besides his backstory. Although if you are 8 feet tall and pure muscle he should be weighing around 500lbs, not 300 lol, I don’t think Jay understands physics and the human body, but it’s canon coming from him so…yea :/

    Interesting fight. Idk the non movie Hellboy and haven’t batten D3 yet. Enlighten me :-)

    “Yes I did pull that number out of my ass, however, there is no fluff in diablo besides the games themselves, considering the books follow the games. Also the demon hunter class has bombs and shoots explosive rounds.”
    -
    1. Then the number is no good.
    -
    2. Demon Hunters use explosive rounds and bombs and some demons and general mobs can survive a direct hit from them. However in the short story fluff they get laid low by a single arrow to the head. Thus we know they are not that tough.
    -
    “In my opinion there is no way hellboy could beat a level 60 barbarian, the barbarian has regeneration in addition to being able to summon spirits and all kinds of bs, in fact (using game mechanics because the barbarians abilities are not portrayed any where else)”
    -
    1. We don’t use mechanics and there’s no way a Barbarian human can defeat Hellboy. His durability is way beyond that of a human having bulletproof skin and, while I’m reading the comics as we speak, has survived a pointblank explosion of multiple tons of WW2 ordinance. Granted he was knocked out cold but he lived. Will take screenshots as I read through these to post.
    -
    2. There are showing of Barbarian power on Blizzards own website. They have a short story for each character that is canon and in the short story Wayfarer the Barbarian was beaten down by a Khazra and displayed that while he has a good degree of stamina he is still human at the end of the day. Here’s the link for you to read

    Sorry but we don’t use those period. Only lore, back stories, and cutscenes period. And nothing here suggests that I can’t kill a Barbarian level 2000 with my Remington 870.

  25. ReDruM April 17, 2013 at 4:27 pm -      #25

    Note I’m not saying Diablo can’t beat Hellboy and there is a high probably he will win. But lets not go overboard and base everything off stats. There are no guns in Diablo and we need strength and power feats since Hellboy is extremely strong and extremely tough.

  26. ahrrhd April 17, 2013 at 4:47 pm -      #26

    So is this Diablo the Lord of Terror? or Diablo the Prime Evil?

    Either way Diablo also can use powerful red lightning, which Diablowiki described as “that destroys almost everything in it’s path”

    Wikis aren’t a usable source of info here and destroy almost everything in its path can be taken as hyperbole.

  28. CannibalisticCookie April 17, 2013 at 5:29 pm -      #28

    Well, I know very little of Diablo, but I love Hellboy.

  29. Aelfinn April 17, 2013 at 6:46 pm -      #29

    Well, Diablo can take punches from the Monk, and the Monk can destroy boulders with single punches. So take that for what it’s worth.

  30. ahrrhd April 17, 2013 at 7:07 pm -      #30

    @ReDruM
    Well it is possible that maybe an exaggeration, but think this way..Anu the One, who was the very first being to exist (in diablo world), and had all the power of good and evil, divided himself in to two being: Anu the One who represent all good, light ..etc, and Tathamet the Dragon who represent all evil, dark …etc…These two fought for millennia, and at the end created entire universe by their final blows which was described as “The energies unleashed by their impossible fury ignited an explosion of light and matter so vast and terrible that it birthed the very universe all around us”
    Diablo the Prime Evil is reincarnation of Tathamet the Dragon..The combination of all evil, darkness, sadness and etc..I think it is safe to assume “that destroys almost everything in it’s path” statement is probably true (well yeah it is still an assumption)
    Also Diablo won against the Imperius the Archangle of Valor easily, broke the Solarion (the spear made of the heart of the dying star) and destroyed the High Heaven’s gate with one scream..

    if you want a source, it’s Book of Cain…

    Well I only know movie Hellboy, so yeah, i only knows very little about him…

    I think he has, but here he is kicking down a fairly large pillar.

    He is also able to throw a tree with his weak hand.

  32. Meshaber April 20, 2013 at 7:27 am -      #32

    That quote from Jay Wilson no longer applies, they scrapped the idea of making him the same individual from Diablo 2.

    Also, the D3 protagonists are not mere humans, they are fully awakened nephalem. Which is Diablospeak for supremely fucking badass.

    In-game dialogue compares them to Uldyssian, who was a potentially omnipotent reality warper nearly destroying all of sanctuary. By accident.

  33. Obyron April 21, 2013 at 11:42 pm -      #33

    D3 Chars are NEPHALEM? Aw, hell.. Uldyssian alone, man… never mind Achllios.
    To the D2 Vets… Red Lightning Hose still give you nightmares?

    I really do think Hellboy wins. I have no reason to believe Diablo can shrug off shots from his gun.

  36. creyzi4j April 25, 2013 at 7:51 am -      #36

    So what can Hellboy do to Diablo?

  37. tyrannicuslictorface June 27, 2013 at 12:38 am -      #37

    Hellboy’s gun contains fragments of the true cross. His bullets contain cloves of garlic, are made from blessed silver and various other religious gimmicks like wolfsbane or stuff like that. Essentially. they will mess up anything unholy pretty badly.

    Additionally. Hellboy is demon-kin. Son of the king of the…old ones i think. He should be able to shrug off things like hellfire due to his heritage.

    Also his right hand is indestructible. Completely and absolutely.

  38. Kitten Lord July 26, 2013 at 7:31 pm -      #38

    So I am bored and considered bumping this, I only know Hellboy from the movies, what can Hellboy do that’s new in the comics?

    As was mentioned above, based on the Book of Cain Diablo was apparently the Dragon of evil reborn, Tathamet who fought the Diablo God to a standstill.

    Its also complete misconception to claim that the heroes who beat him are regular humans, all humans as has already been stated in the thread are Nephilim, half angel/demon offspring who one such member Uldyssian could tank/shield himself from mountain sized shards of ice being thrown at him and fought an amped super angel into a standstill.

    -

    The Book of cain also states that the spear of Imperius was forged in the heard of a dying star, which suggests huge heat/pressure and strength for both the spear and Imperius himself, which Diablo felled with ease.
