FIGHT! ScrewAttack Death Battle - Fulgore versus Sektor!

You watched the fight announcement preview -- now the ScrewAttack DEATH BATTLE is finally here! Representing UltraTech and The Lin Kuei respectively it's a full metal main event as Fulgore takes on Sektor!

Once, long ago, Killer Instinct was actually touted as the Mortal Kombat killer. While the Nintendo-centric series amassed a strong cult following, its fusion of Kombat and Street Fighter influences always felt a step or two behind its older brothers. It's fair to say years in obscurity reflect the contrast of Mortal Kombat's ultimate dominance as a cross-platform, pop culture phenomenon.

Of course, as fans on the forums know; Killer Instinct made a bold comeback in 2013, resurrecting the franchise for a new generation with on-going micro-transaction updates! This came two years after Mortal Kombat had its own franchise rebirth -- KI forever following in its footsteps. What does all of this mean? Well, it's the premise of a franchise grudge match that hasn't necessarily picked its competitors evenly.

Death Battles profess to look only at the games and characters' abilities to determine their outcomes. If you ask us, they go a little too far. If you haven't watched the view [embedded above] - this is your last chance to jump before we engage cyborg spoiler mode!


Tekunin Warrior: 2006 Official Sektor Concept Art.

Previous ScrewAttack battles featuring Mortal Kombat fighters have shown inherent advantages to one participant over the other. Lightning manipulating Thor faced the electric Raiden; soul manipulating Shao Kahn faced psycho soul powered Bison. This Death Battle was a welcome return to a more even thematic platform, at least in the basic premise. The way we see it -- this was a match-up of an A-list character from a B-list series, taking on a B-list character from an A-list series. That alone has the potential to weight the advantage in favour of one over the other, but there's a debate to be had over which way it goes.

ScrewAttack look to the in-game content for their references when breaking abilities down. With very few cross-media appearances: neither character was bolstered or penalized by inferior adaptations. They were, however, matched on a literal interpretation of their in-game abilities. In this respect, we would have to acknowledge that Fulgore seems to have some legitimate edge -- but how adequate is this comparison?

For Sektor to have a shot, you have to respect that brute force and bulk aren't always the best way to win. There's no denying Fulgore has a full metal shell that gives him a weight and power advantage, but Sektor could be well equipped to handle these abilities.

Ninjas or not [not] -- The Lin Kuei are a clan of martial arts master assassins. They clearly value a certain amount of ninja-esque stealth and manoeuvrability. We're not convinced Mortal Kombat has ever applied its fighting styles with enough consistency or conceptual grounding to take them literally. If we did: Sektor's sambo would give him a strong Judo style grappling base, with kenpo being a system built on counter attacks. These skills would certainly be put to good use against the bulky Fulgore and his weight advantage. If you've ever been on the end of Sektor's teleport punches -- you know how well he can out manoeuvre foes and attacks.

Sektor's penchant for flame probably wouldn't do him a whole lot of good against his metallic foe, but missiles pack a punch, and have been shown to be system guided for precision in moves like the Robo-Sek fatality. As ScrewAttack note -- Fulgore's defeat came when he was ripped apart. Sektor's missiles are sure to soften up those joints and those pulse blades that were mentioned? Perfect for loosening and cutting UltraTech engineered joins. The conclusion? The Scarecrow!


Sektor Wins: "The Scarecrow" separates the men from the boys... and the limbs from the body!

RE: FIGHT! ScrewAttack Death Battle - Fulgore versus Sektor!

I think it really should have ended in a tie.

Death Battle conveniently left out several of Sektor's abilities. They didn't mention Sektor's own super meter that builds up in MK9, and because it builds up as his enemy blocks attacks or Sektor takes damage, it surely would've been full at some point before the end of the fight, allowing him to either:

A - Break one of Fulgore's combos, like what Fulgore did to Sektor earlier in the fight.
B - Abuse his super armour as part of activating Massive Missile, which also CANNOT be reflected, which, when it connects, hits for a significant amount of damage.

And yes, he didn't even fire off the scarecrow... I also don't quite get why they're so insistent on the compactor being a weapon to pull out in the middle of a fight

Fulgore definately had the raw power and armour advantage, but I think Sektor's abilities would have put him at least on par with Fulgore in a fight. EDIT: As a disclaimer, yes I am a fairly big Sektor fan, but Fulgore is also one of my favourite fictional characters too, so I was genuinely excited for this battle, but I was let down to be honest... Next one looks to be pretty exciting though.

As I stated on the video, there's a reason they didn't include the Scarecrow, and it is quite obvious.

It comes as no surprise Sektor got his ass handed to him.

Fulgore's meter is exclusive to him. He builds meter entirely different than anyone else and it's because of the nuclear reactor inside him.

Sektor's meter isn't exclusive to him. Everyone in MK9 has super meter and it builds the same for everyone. Wouldn't have made sense to include that to be honest.

Nothing against Sektor, but I knew Fulgore had this one. He looks beast in the new KI. BTW, I would assume that "Sektor" is a codename; the Grandmaster wouldn't actually name his son that, just as an African Botswana man wouldn't be named "Cyrax."

EDIT - ^^^^^^ I screwed up the quote thing sorry

That's a valid point. However, the meter is used to allow Sekkie to pull off his X-ray attack and his combo breakers, both of which were absent in the fight... And even though KI's famous for combo breakers, Fulgie's been able to do them for 3 games, whereas Sektor's been able to do them for 2, which is almost as frequent, so I believe Sektor shoulda been able to rip out a breaker of his own.

On the flipside too though, Fulgore didn't use the full extent of his arsenal either, for example his space-disintegration laser and his 'heavy artillery' finishers from KI2 didn't appear in the fight, so I guess it does even out in the end.

Called it.

Still not happy. Time to pick up KI and become the best Fulgore ever JUST so I can say Sektor is better? I think so.

Fight was a good watch, but I had a feeling Fulgore would take it.

Side note: When will Jon Talbain vs. Sabrewulf happen? We need a proper dogfight.

I love these, they are really well done, if too short.
Obviously I'd have wanted Sektor to win but Fulgore is a tough MF'er.

Scarecrow kind of ends the match so I think they're off the mark a bit.

On a side note, I reckon Fulgore would make a nice guest character for MKX. I dunno what rights would be restricting his use in such a way, however.

Your argument is invalid, as an ability is an ability, just because another character can do the same thing doesn't mean you completely take the move out of continuity. Also, Sektor's x-ray should've been in as well.

If the opponent is from DC Comics or Mortal Kombat, expect Screw Attack to pull more bullshit out of their asses or noncannonical adaptations (such as films, fan fiction & fan animation) to support their biases against those two franchises.
