    I will go with Samurai X on this one

    Don’t know much about Afro, but he’d have to be pretty good to beat Kenshin…what kind of feats does he have?

    “what kind of feats does he have?”

    He managed to block some beam (from 5:40) and pretty good fighter:

    (7:35) You got Kenshin killing a few guys,

    Also in that last video go to (12:20) to see some slicing damage.

    I have no idea about either of them, save that Afro Samurai’s right on par with Samurai Jack. I’m edging with him.

    They both fought Samurai Jack evenly I believe I don’t know for sure about kenshin but jack had a sligth advantage over Afro in some form.

    Well… there flowed a lot of water down the river since i last saw those serieses… but regarding my alcohol ridden memories i tend to favour Kenshin… his fight vs the other “battousai” was… kinda epic… a lot more so than Afro Samurais final showdown…

    Ah… sorry for the double-post but i just remembered to ask:
    Wich side of his katana does Kenshin use? Since he only uses the dull side in the series (well his special sword has the dull side ond the “wrong” side), as he has this “no more killing” attitude…

    I’d say give him a normal katana and killing intend -> good bye afro samurai….

  10. Kyuuketsuki May 18, 2013 at 1:44 pm -      #10

    I think he would use the sharp side since Factpile takes away that “None killing” attitude

  11. captain napalm May 18, 2013 at 1:51 pm -      #11

    Well, the dull side never really acted as a disadvantage…he was still able to incapacitate his enemies perfectly well with it, and that’d count as a win.

    So I don’t think which side of the sword used makes a difference.

    Then I gotta vote for Kenshin :)
    Afro Samurai always had quite a lot of luck during his fights if I remember correctly…

    @captain napalm
    “he was still able to incapacitate his enemies perfectly well with it, and that’d count as a win”

    I guess this still supports my point: He took the effort to NOT kill them during the fight – even though his enemies didn’t lay that burden on themselfes- which is harder to do than trying to cut them down – at least in my opinion ;).

    Funny. I distinctly recall Samurai Jack soundly defeating Afro. Not it being a close match. I don’t recall how Jack and Kenshin’s match went, though.

  15. Gluttonous-Behemoth May 18, 2013 at 3:56 pm -      #15

    Afro’s only hope against Jack was Chuck’s bullock lightspeed calc.

    I just looked back at Samurai Jack vs Kenshin, and they never conclusively resolved it, but more people were siding with Jack.

    if only to be the first to ask, which headband is afro getting here? #2 or #1?

  18. Kyuuketsuki May 18, 2013 at 11:50 pm -      #18

    What do Head Bands do?

  19. Rookie May 19, 2013 at 1:07 am -      #19

    “#2 or #1?”
    Doesn’t really matter. They don’t grand Afro any powers. In the video(from 1:38) some guys managed to injure Afro while he have #1 headband with him. So he don’t become invincible with it.

  20. captain napalm May 19, 2013 at 4:22 am -      #20

    “Doesn’t really matter. They don’t grand Afro any powers.”

    So what’s the point of the headbands, then?

    Are they just a symbol of status or achievement? I thought they were magic…

    @captain napalm
    “Are they just a symbol of status or achievement?”

    I don’t know. If they ever give someone any power I probably don’t know about it or somehow missed that moment.

    [Series Name] vs [Series Name]
    Shouldn’t it be Afro Samurai vs Kenshin Himura?
    If it weren’t for the match description, I would have thought this was a universe fight, which would be awesome.
    Or is it?

  23. Kyuuketsuki May 19, 2013 at 10:23 am -      #23

    This would be a cool universe fight

  24. captain napalm May 20, 2013 at 11:29 am -      #24

    I think it’s meant to be a one-one-one, it’s just titled slightly awkwardly, seeing as Rurouni is the series title, not the character’s name.

  25. Charlotte English May 22, 2013 at 12:49 am -      #25

    I want so badly for Kenshin to win this.

    That said, I know VERY LITTLE of Afro, so I am not an unbiased party here. What are some of Afro’s feats?

  26. GabrielusPrime June 10, 2014 at 2:13 pm -      #26

    Quick question about the Afro Samurai series: does that “Number one” headband actually make you a better fighter, or is it just a status symbol worn by the absolute best?
