Which time traveler with a magic sword would win in a fight?

Assume both are at absolutely full power.

I'd say Link; Urbosa's Fury never misses, he has stronger armor, and his aim is impeccable when shooting from the air.

The picture shows TP Link, sorry about that.

Jack's sword can only harm evil, so he'd have to fight with standard weapons or unarmed. So it'd probably be link. Jack is at his best when it's 1v1 though, so it'd still be close.

fuck that, how about aku vs ganon

Link's weapons will break in the first 5 seconds.

Is BotW Link really a time traveller? He just went to sleep for a hundred years. Even OoT Link can go back and forth from child to adult...

desu I really wish BotW was a bit more like Samurai Jack, just in general, so that we could see what a Ganon-ruled hyrule would look like instead of just sticking to the castle like always.

BTW what do you guys think of season 5 so far?

Seems they're actually adding some proper continuity between episodes compared to the previous 4 seasons which I'm in two minds about, but apart from that it does capture a lot of the feel of the original.

The darker tone is also pretty good, and it reflects how the original audience will be older too, although I swear there were some episodes in the original seasons where jack kills living creatures, so I'm not too sure why this one girl he kills makes such an impact this time.
>>

>>
>>371192995
Jack is so hilariously OP I don't even know how this is a contest. He's mastered every fighting style on earth, his sense a top tuned to the point he can dodge arrows while blind folded, he can block bullets with his sword and he jumps good. Granted, I don't know a shit ton about LoZ but from what I've seen, I don't think Link can match that.
>>
>>371194186
Not in a direct, simple fight, but you forget Link has magical powers including, but not limited to, being healed back to life when killed.

It's like a Batman vs. Spider-Man scenario. One has more skill while the other has more ability.
>>
>>371194184
I don't think he's killed any type of humanoid, just kind of beat up/disarmed.
>>
>>371192995
Never played Breath of Wild but Link is the most overwanked character in the history of video games. He never had any proper training with a sword while Jack trained since he was a small child.

>>371193484
Actually Jack's sword cannot be used to harm an innocent in the hands of evil, it's never said that it can only harm evil.
>>
>>371193524
So will Jack's, haven't you watched the latest episode?
>>
>>371194561

See >>371194186

He pretty clearly slices up two of them and then throws bombs at Boris.
>>
>>371194561
He killed a cute girl in the latest episode actually.

Granted she was an assassin who just stabbed him in the gut, but he still killed her.
>>
>>371194184
I didn't know h that he'd never killed a person, i just assumed it tripped him up because she was a kid. I mean the daughters can't be much older than 16-17 years old.
>>
>>371194861
That's a special case and I don't even think the Tuning dagger can damage Jacks sword.
>>
>>371194839
>Actually Jack's sword cannot be used to harm an innocent in the hands of evil, it's never said that it can only harm evil.
Sure, but wouldn't trying to harm a good person make jack evil? I guess it would come down to who started the fight.
>>
>>371194861
Jack knows hand to hand martial arts too. BotW Link can't even throw a punch when completely unarmed.
>>
>>371194839
BotW Link is the son of a knight and trained as a solider since he was a kid.

Just use the old "They were tricked into thinking the other was evil."

Doesn't have to be a fight to the death though.
>>
>>371195260
The only time Jack ever fights is when he's defending himself or other people.
>>
>>371195260
Maybe if they somehow agree on it being a friendly duel somewhat close to death, then I suppose it would be okay for the sword to hurt Link. Link has healing so its all good.
>>
>>371192995
Oh boy I can't wait for a whole new round of butthurt.

I don't understand the Link meme. The only time EVER that he's been show to have crazy sword technique is his Final Smash, otherwise it's just standard swordfight fare or magic.
>>
>>371195627
I don't get it either. People always hype up the Fierce Deity Mask as being this insanely powerful god literal mode, yet it can only ever be used against the Majora final boss and it can only shoot lasers out of his sword.

It would be a joke of a fight

How much food does Link have? If he's got stack after stack of top quality food he could go on theoretically for months, just waiting for the master sword to recharge time after time.

In the hands of this guy Jack has no chance.

Jack can outpace link easily. His speed and senses are off the charts. Remember the episode with the three archers who could take out an army and how he beat them fucking blindfolded?
>>
>>371194184
Because not all of the original episodes were written by Genndy. His original intention was that Jack was so good that he could always disarm or just otherwise incapacitate anyone attacking him and only would 'kill' Aku's creations or machines.

If that's not a good enough explaination, then you can take Jack's reduced mental state and him hyping himself up that they were just machines to have broken him. He didn't expect it and went in with killing intent and it's thrown him off balance. I know that if I thought I was fighting a robot and then it sprayed blood I would be sickened. It's just how the brain works, you prep yourself for certain stimuli and when that thing doesn't happen, it messes with you.

Grab two different drinks that you know the taste of, have someone pour them into a cup with a lid so you can't see or smell which one it is and prep yourself for one. If you get the opposite, it will taste like shit to you. That's basicly what happened to Jack. He went all out with killing intent and now he's sickened because in his mind he's thinking "If I had known, then I could have not killed her. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN."
>>
>>371197106
You're acting like being blindfolded was a liability and wasn't the thing that pushed him to victory.

Better question:
Who would win in a four-way fight?

>Any Dark Souls protagonist
>Samurai Jack
>BotW/TP Link
>Raiden

Assume they know they'll be healed at the end, so they have no reason to hold back or have their weapons not work.
>>
>>371198690
>One can fly and shoot lasers
>The other one is fast I guess?

Not a tough decision, hombre
>>
>>371199454
List some powers of the Dark Souls protagonists.

From what I'd know Jack would win. With being healed at the end Mipha's Grace is worthless.
>>
>>371199454
Link and souls protagonist are pretty much irrelevant
Raiden is basically cyborg jack who is stronger and faster
>>
>>371193820
Liking it a lot. Glad they addressed the niggle I had in the first episode about how Aku went for years without knowing Jack lost the sword.

The scene with his subconscious saying he should kill himself was heartbreaking.
>>
>>371199692
Can heal repeatedly with Estus, drink/sip times vary.
Dodge rolls with I-Frames
Poise
Weapon Buffs
Can use a lot of different weapons and shit
Access to various sorcery, miracles, pyromancy

>>371199912
But Link and Souls protag have magic and a lot of utility

But there are a LOT of ruins and it is generally unsafe for travelers, so I think the intended effect is there to an extent.

Society still flourishes to an extent under Aku as well. There's just a constant underlying sense of fear for the average citizen, which i'd say is what's also in BotW.

This is like the question if Aku can fair well in 40k. In 40k, NOTHING there can hurt or kill him. Blind fervor from followers of the Emprah means nothing as it is not righteousness, which is the one thing that harms Aku.

>>371194186
The way I see it, Jack has greater physical abilities, whereas Link has magic to back him up. Link has the edge, just due to the bullshit he has at his disposal, like Urbosa's Fury and Daruk's Protection.

Also how the fuck can anyone argue that Jack didn't kill anyone before?
>>
>>371201169
>Also how the fuck can anyone argue that Jack didn't kill anyone before?
He's killed, but he was probably able to disconnect himself from it until he killed a human.
>>
>>371199454
they all start fighting
souls protagonist gets hurt, drinks estus
Raiden want to drink too, 'cause he's a bro.
Link picks up the empty bottle, happy with his reward.
They all go fight aku with Jack. Raiden mistaking him for a metal gear, link mistaking him for a legendary beast, and souls protag because bosses need to die.

Since Aku dies, jack wins.

big fucking deal, samurai jack trained with spartans and pretty much every culture around the world

>>371201832
Souls protag wouldn't give up Estus Flask for the whole fucking world.
>Raiden mistaking him for a metal gear
Mistaking AKU for a fucking MG? No chance. He'd probably get fucked because no way to heal off Zandatsus because Aku is just physical evil.
Link would probably go for it because Aku is obviously evil and its Link's job to be a hero. Same with Souls protag, except muh humanity.

They are definitely taking advantage of the darker tone in a great way
>>
Jack is faster, stronger and more durable in base form, and has more experience than any single Link, but Link with magic items is just too potentially broken.

>>371193514
Stalemate, neither has the means to kill the other (though Aku is more likely to have a way to seal Ganon than vice versa). Aku probably just ends up manipulating Ganondorf to further his own ends.
>>
>>371203819
Broken how? With which items?
>>
>>371203819
>Aku probably just ends up manipulating Ganondorf to further his own ends
Aku couldn't manipulate a bunch of kids to like him over Jack, the fuck makes you think he could manipulate Ganondorf? The only time Aku manipulates is if he has something someone wants or makes threats, I don't see either being effective against Ganondorf.

I agree it's a relative stalemate between Aku and Ganondorf though.

>Golden Armor

Do you mean magic armor, or is that something new?

Link has at most 1000 rupees of invulnerability and Jack has fought tough endurance matches before. A flurry of strikes will drain it quickly and at worst, he waits out the clock or uses the environment to avoid link/judo to keep him off balance and unable to fight.

>Naryu's love
Can still be knocked around and can't use other abilities that require magic. Another bout of endurance before Link runs out of magic and potions.

Maybe. It's fluff is pretty fluffy.

Has magnetism ever been used on Jack's sword? I don't recall it ever happening, and for all we know it may not have the properties of metal because it's righteousness torn from the soul then forged into a blade by three gods.
