Posted by Nicholas 'MajinTenshinhan' Taylor • June 28, 2013 at 7:41 a.m. PDT
Ever wondered who would come out of top between the Emperor of Outworld and the Master of Psycho Power? Well, ScrewAttack is here to make you wonder no more, with the latest installment of their Death Battle-series covering that very matchup. Mortal Kombat's Shao Kahn goes up against Street Fighter's M. Bison in a glorious battle, but only one can survive. Check it out below.

Do you agree with the results? Let us know in the comments.

Thanks to RebornNYC6 and Kuei for the news tip.

Well, that's what you get for using A3 Bison. Run it back with CE Bison and then we'll talk.

Meh. Both characters are stupid and have outdated designs.

Wait the M for M.Bison for the American version stands for Master? I know its suppose to be Mike in Japan for the Boxer

Wtf? Why would khans thousands of years of experience mean anything? When he's constantly getting pummeled by people no older than 30.

F**k out with this sh*t! Bison would rape that lame as Khan.

DJScrubble said on June 28, 2013 at 7:59 a.m.

#5 Those people no older than 30 are backed by Gods.

I don't really care about this death battle now that I saw what the next death battle is.

Next death battle will be amazing. Obviously hayabusa would win ;)

Bison should of put him in the corner. Then he would of won.

Sorry the characters ain't too flamboyant for you like the crappy blaz blue cast or the other anime characters who look like they shop at Gucci or Hermeswhile fighting <_<

Chrisuchiwa said on June 28, 2013 at 8:10 a.m.

M. Bison is the weakest boss of FGs I ever played. He is just so weak for a boss. But I do understand because he was designed as a playable character, not like Rugal in KOF.

@12

What games have you been playing?

#13

@13, SNK games probably. Those games have BRUTAL bosses...

He better have been. Otherwise he hasn't played Alpha 3 or the EX series.

#16
shinra358 said on June 28, 2013 at 8:28 a.m.

@15 - Alpha 3 bison was easy (except world tour on psp when you fight 2 with infinite meter at the same time). But dat SF2 Bison! lol.

Every Kahn from the original MKs were beast. Dem subzero only kills xD

abirzenith said on June 28, 2013 at 8:37 a.m.

should be akuma/oni vs shao khan :/ akuma could have pwned him , hell akuma and asura battle pretty much made him stronger then any other mk character

#19
Chrisuchiwa said on June 28, 2013 at 8:39 a.m.

@13 Do you really want me to list games I have been playing, seriously? just some
SF2 (and series) SF Alpha (1,2 and 3) SF3 (series) SF4 (series), SF Ex (1,2 and 3) KOF 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, KOF 13. Xmen vs SF, SF vs Marvel, MvC, MvC2, MvC3 and UMvC3. Samurai Showdown (series) Darkstalkers (series), Garou, Fatal fury (series), Art of fighters (series), Blazblue (series) Guilty gear (only the last one). Killer Instinct, Power instinct (series), Even Tekken (series up to Tekken 4) Soul Calibur (series (1, 2 and 3). Marvel super heroes (series), Mortal Kombat (1, 2, 3 and 4).... Not to mention Dragon ball and Naruto series.

This is not even all FGs I have been playing because I played alot of strange FGs you can't even imagine. Unlike most of people here, I started playing in arcades. So when I say M. Bison is one the weakest boss of FGs I ever played, it is actually the case.

#20
Stitchking said on June 28, 2013 at 8:40 a.m.

@17 I played Alpha 3 on dreamcast and on world tour you had to fight 2 final Bisons with unlimited meter. So that's what I'm basing it off of as well as the Final Bison from the EX series.

And honestly I've never had trouble with Shao Khan especially MK2 where you just had to duck-block and kick him when he gets close, I always had more grief from Kintaro and Motaro.

#21
Abbadon36 said on June 28, 2013 at 8:41 a.m.

In America the M stands for Mario. Since he has Marios' head stomp. American name = Mario Bison!

Anyway, Kahn is a monster, no wonder Bison didn't stand a chance...

cadnexus said on June 28, 2013 at 8:51 a.m.

Makes perfect sense M.Bison has NOTHING on Shao Kahn should of been Shao Kahn vs Akuma.

Ryu vs Strider=traditional Ninja vs technology ninja. Pretty good match-up here, but something tells me Ryu (ninja gaiden) would win. Ryu is by far stronger than Striker (yeah both are strong, but Ryu is stronger) Ryu uses magic and Strider uses technology, Ryu would own all of Strider's technology by chopping it all to pieces. Ryu is also faster than Strider as well, however, Strider has a teleport. It's a tough call because Strider has Oroboros which would NOT be a good idea for Ryu to block because it's made of energy and the same could be said with Strider's sword beam, but Ryu would win because of his magic and strength.

#28
Ginta36 said on June 28, 2013 at 8:52 a.m.

When I was a kid I thought the M. in M. Bison stood for MEGALO... MEGALO BISON!!

#29
Stitchking said on June 28, 2013 at 8:55 a.m.

@20

I think most people did start playing in arcades. Anyway, first I'm going to cut out all the SNK games you noted(SNK boss syndrome). Alpha and Alpha 2 don't have set bosses so they don't count either. I never got too into Killer Instinct so I have to take your word on that one. And the same goes for Blazblue. Now Guilty Gear Justice and I-no were painful, but once you know how to get around their attacks their fairly easy. Gill didn't give me grief un SF3 Thrid Strike. And as for SF IV Seth isn't really worth mentioning when he's is CPU controlled. As for the Marvel Vs. Series, Magneto, Thanos, Apocalypse, Onslaught, Abyss, and Galactus do indeed pack a punch but their pretty easy to beat because they're no big on reading your inputs. As for Tekken, I can't remember anyone being really hard up to 4 and the only boss in the Soul series up to three that kept putting the screws to me was Nightterror. And I mentioned the MK series earlier but Shang from MK1 and Shinnok from MK4 were easy enough to beat while eating a sandwich. And I'm surprised that you actually said Bison was weak given you played the EX series unless you never for Bison II or Shin Bison. I apologize if I made any grammatical errors.

HooliganComboFTW said on June 28, 2013 at 8:56 a.m.

#23
Lore wise for both series (Yeah I know both games have a convoluted lore, but a lore nevertheless) is heavily favorably to the SF side.

Cody (chains off) (Insanely strong fighter that even gave Akuma problems with chains off and Normal Ryu with chains on), Evil Ryu( Normal Ryu would still give alot of the MK characters a challenge), Gouken and Oni/Akuma (They are pretty much DBZ territory at this point) would destroy most of the MK cast (EarthRealm, OutWorld, whatever) with the possible exception being Raiden because of god status or whatever ass pull boss character gets created like that Dragon thing or that Fire thing

#31
Stitchking said on June 28, 2013 at 8:58 a.m.

@26

In SFA3 they had ISMs

A/Z ISM- Alpha Style
V ISM- Custom Combos
X ISM- Street Fighter II Style
Shadaloo ISM- Is Final Bison's own style that let's him have suped up normals and a really nasty Psycho Crusher

#32
ZeroGouki05 said on June 28, 2013 at 8:59 a.m.

@26

Its not Goku vs. Superman so don't expect them to go out of there way to get everytht. Regardless I still liked it even though Bison lost.

#33
Cammystrike said on June 28, 2013 at 9:02 a.m.

I love fanboy logic, I don't even care for Shao Khan, but I'm not so biased to believe he would lose to Bison. Bison uses his soul as a weapon, the matchup was already bad because of that.

#34
HooliganComboFTW said on June 28, 2013 at 9:05 a.m.

However Shao Kahn vs Bison is heavily favorable towards Shao Kahn

Bison heavily realies on his psycho powers(Although he can fight ok without them, if Rose successfully took his powers away he would be a considerably less of a threat in the SF universe) to be on par with alot of the SF cast. In this matchup, Shao Kahn would be indifferent by the psycho powers (especially if fight takes place in Outworld) and use his hammer to do most of the work and has superior strength/durability overall compared to Bison. Bison may have lead the Shadowloo organization, but that has nothing on being the emperor of Outworld and possibly all the realms.

#35
zUkUu said on June 28, 2013 at 9:07 a.m.

They fail to pick the right winner 90% of the time. It's sickening. You'd think they would at least GUESS right half the time...

#36
Chrisuchiwa said on June 28, 2013 at 9:12 a.m.

@30 all CPU bosses become easy to read once you have played a lot of matches but M.Bison is the easiest one.

No way Ryu Hayabusa loses to Strider. Strider has no health

Yeah, I would picked Shao Khan too.
Plus for me "M. Bison" always stands for "Mister Bison".

It Looks like Screw attack is biased against Japanese Characters in games.

They did the same thing with Superman vs Goku having superman win and now Shao Kahn. Boooo.

#54
Vardek13 said on June 28, 2013 at 10:38 a.m.

I knew from the beginning that shao khan would've won. I love M.Bison, but Shao Khan is simply OP as F. That's why we all prefer M.Bison, it's an incredible dictator, Shao Khan is just a stupid boss with no backstory whatsoever and still super strong.

Not the case, since a couple of years back they had Shang Tsung face Akuma, with the Demon Shoto winning.

MALDA_IS_BACK said on June 28, 2013 at 10:42 a.m.

@54

You mean your bias because your mad you discover Superman could kick Goku ass with ease and Akuma beat Snang Tsung on the screwattack deathbattle so your weebo logic is stupid

#59
Stitchking said on June 28, 2013 at 10:50 a.m.

@59

I'm a huge Bison fan but I'll have to admit Shao has it on him. But the whole Goku vs Superman thing, not so much. Sure if Goku doesn't transform, but how many times has Superman come close to destroying a planet?

#60
MALDA_IS_BACK said on June 28, 2013 at 10:53 a.m.

He could destroy a planet this isn't new for Superman with a punch

#61
MALDA_IS_BACK said on June 28, 2013 at 10:57 a.m.

Or a Heat vesion but he haves to blow up a planet just like Goku haves no reason why to blow up a planet.

#62
Stitchking said on June 28, 2013 at 10:57 a.m.

That's true, but I meant just by being there. Just transforming can make the whole planet shake.

I just read Superman's profile on the DC and in doing so I have to retract what I just said. Superman would probably beat Goku.

#66
MALDA_IS_BACK said on June 28, 2013 at 11:08 a.m.

That's just Goku ability there differently when it comes to show there power but in the end Superman over powers Goku in almost every section besides martial arts

genocideSX said on June 28, 2013 at 11:32 a.m.

i wanted hotsuma (shinobi) vs. ryu hayabusa (ninja gaiden) -_- this is cool too i guess lol should still be awesome.

as for this match up, yeah i believe the part at the end refering to the taking souls vs. weaponized souls. However, in terms of SHEER POWER i dont think khan can match. from what ive seen that has been the factor between raiden vs khan (correct me if im wrong not an expert). plus bison will come back assuming he has pieces of his soul some where else, then find a way to beat khan lol :P

cab1020 said on June 28, 2013 at 11:47 a.m.

@61 You do understand detroying planets by the end of DBZ/GT era is like a normal thing, and not at all difficult for them right? Hell Broly destroyed galaxies before being beat by Goku. DBZ has by far the most OD characters.

@25..how do u kno it wasnt Asuras canon tho... n regardless,Oni is still a strong mofo, trees shatter just by him walking near it, even Akuma sank an island on his own...dont underestimate SF characters n they fight without sorcerer/gods magic, theyre power comes from inside of them

That was pretty awesome. They should have used Bison's sprites from SF: The movie though.

BlazinKoolBreez said on June 28, 2013 at 12:34 p.m.

@69 now Hotsuma vs Hayabusa would b perfect, it may n should end in a double KO... they both hav the traditional GREAT superninja qualities, technique, speed, quickness, strength, swords, disapearing into shadows, ninpou, ability to take care of business even if the enemy isnt in humanoid form, EVERYTHING..theyre perfect together

The winner and loser of these videos is always becides the point. I'm a little disappointing that they didn't explore their abilities more. For instance Shao Khan could have stolen Bison's Psycho Power but Bison comes back as Final Bison, defeats Khan, but yet both of them come back and it's a draw.

I already knew it'd be Shao Kahn winning.

I'm also laughing at you people who think the SF's universe is stronger than the MK universe.

Canon story is easy to measure, but gameplay is something else.
