I had a weird dream. I don’t remember all the details, but I got the pretty clear impression that Red Joker Mega Man
(with some help from Rogue
somehow) was fighting Frieza
Then I got to thinking “Well, who actually would win?”, and usually I say Jump characters are tough to beat because they’re all OP, but then I thought about it some more. Being OP in Dragon Ball usually boils down to blowing up a planet. That was the whole point of Andromeda, and Geo blew that up in his first game.
So I decided to go ahead and say Frieza, Geo, and Solo were all of comparable power. Then I realized two on one would be too one-sided (and really, how did Geo convince Solo to help him anyway??), so I decided to just go with Red Joker Mega Man (with no time limit) vs “Final Form” Frieza. (I didn’t want to try comparing them to Golden Frieza, I wouldn’t know where to start with that.)
So. If they’re about the same power level, strategy is what’s most important. Let's take a look at what we've got:
-Frieza’s no slouch, but he does tend to rely on flat-out overpowering people. He’s not off to the best start.
-Geo’s biggest advantage is that his Battle Cards are incredibly versatile, and since he’s using an indefinite Meteor Folder, he’ll have a potentially infinite stock of super powerful ones.
-As far as I can recall, the Meteor Folder doesn’t include cards like Invis or Recov, so Geo’s support and healing options are essentially non-existent.
-Red Joker means he probably will be slower than Frieza, which does help Frieza’s chances, but this may also be mitigated by the Mega Attack–even if he’s normally slower, being able to teleport directly in front of Frieza will definitely be a big help.
-Geo’s packing Super Armor, meaning if Frieza does land a hit, Geo will shrug it off and deliver one of his own.
-Frieza needs to intentionally prepare for any attack. Geo’s Mega Buster charges on its own when not in use. Another point to Geo.
-It’s looking pretty likely Geo will win, but I think there are two ways Frieza could turn this around. The first is that, like Goku, if Frieza starts begging for mercy and saying he’ll change his ways, Geo will probably believe him and leave an opening for a cheap shot. It’s an unfair tactic, but worth noting.
-The other is more of a wild card: Frieza’s homing energy disk. Since Red Joker Mega Man is going to be slower than Frieza, he might have some trouble dodging this and finding time to counter. And, since the technique puts so much into its cutting power, I’m not entirely sure it can be blocked by Geo’s shield. How well Geo is able to deal with this attack could potentially decide the outcome of the match.
So in summary: Geo’s Battle Cards, Mega Attack, and Super Armor give him an edge, plain and simple. Frieza’s best chance at victory is taking a cheap shot, which Geo probably would fall for if the situation presented itself, though alternatively it’s possible his homing energy disk could win him the fight. Geo would probably win, but it’s not entirely clear-cut.
Okay so that’s done. Except now I’m trying to figure out Rogue vs Frieza and that’s a little more difficult…
