Top Five Versus

Top Five is a show where the hosts categorize, rank, compare, and stratify everything… from cars to gadgets to people and movies. From stuff that is hot, and things that are not nearly as interesting – it’s Top Five.

X vs. Y! Day vs. Night! We don’t care who or what is involved, we just want to see a fight over something!

  1. My first Top 5 episode that I’ve listened to!

    My battle is Stephen Schleicher’s memory vs The Rules of Dungeons and Dragons 4th edition.

    The odds are looking grim for you Mr. Schleicher.

    Much love,

  2. Jim Fitzpatrick on

    This was a surprise of an episode, didn’t expect to enjoy it as much as I did. Here are my five.

    5. Participants: Elton John vs. Billy Joel
    Challenge: Fist fight
    Comments: Should probably take place on a Saturday night. Elton gets shatterproof glasses for this one, it’s only fair.

    4. Participants: Eyedea vs. Supernatural
    Challenge: Rap battle
    Comments: Two of the best battle MCs ever in a head to head challenge for all the marbles! Who wins? The hip hop consuming public, that’s who.

    3. Participants: Ken vs. Ryu
    Challenge: Fight, standard Street Fighter II ruleset
    Comments: Extra range on the dragon punch vs. the faster hurricane kick. Loser gets Ken’s haircut.

    2. Participants: Nirvana vs. Pearl Jam
    Challenge: Total record sales, 1990-2000
    Comments: If we assume that Kurt doesn’t kick the bucket, who sells more records in the 90s?

    1. Participants: GlaDOS vs. Pazuzu
    Challenge: Who makes me cry first by talking trash to me?
    Comments: My mom does WHAT in hell? I AM TOO GOING THE RIGHT WAY!

  3. 1. Scooby-Dum vs. Detective Chimp.

    2. Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy vs Grimlock and Wheelie

    3. Warlock (New Mutants) vs. Upgrade (Ben 10)

    4. Speedball (New Warriors) vs. Sebastian Shaw (Hellfire Club)

    5. Darkwing Duck vs. Dangermouse.

  4. Uncle Iroh vs Gandalf. I’m not so much after a fight here as who can give the best guidance. Gandalf was sage but often absent, Iroh was wise but was overly dedicated to his comfort.

    Darth Vader vs Inigo. Darth Vader would have to trade down to a rapier, but I think a great sword fight between those two would be magnificent. Both Star Wars and the Princess Bride do a lot with terrain in their fight scenes.

    Schlock from vs Alduin. Schlock is durable, violent, and not entirely fire resistant. Alduin is destruction personifies but has an endoskeleton.

    Kvothe vs Randus. Sort of an invent off. I feel like Kvothe has the capacity to create more than he has been shown to create. Randus blew up up.

    GLADOS vs HACKTAR. These robot inventors just want to do their thing. Glados is angry, Hacktar is resigned. They should fight.
