(*Cues: Wiz & Boomstick - Brandon Yates*)
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Wiz: Everything that lives must die. Everything that is created must be destroyed. So sayeth these vanguards of the apocalypse.
Boomstick: Badass. But why they gotta be a golden ballerina and a purple cat?
Wiz: Lord Beerus, Dragon Ball's almighty God of Destruction.
Boomstick: And Empress Galaxia, the Sailor Scout of destruction from Sailor Moon.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.
Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win... a Death Battle.
Wiz: Son Goku. This Super Saiyan has seen his fair share of world, no, universe-ending threats.
Boomstick: But he hadn't seen anyone treat mass slaughter like a job until he met a God of Destruction, because it is their job.
Wiz: A God of Destruction's role is to, well, destroy ancient planets and civilizations to make way for the new.
Boomstick: Sorta like takin' out the trash, just with a billion times more murder.
Wiz: And in the case of Universe #7, the title of Destroyer was granted to Lord Beerus. A cat.
Boomstick: Obviously! Everyone knows cats are all secretly plotting to kill everyone. Hell, "God of Destruction" is what my ex-wife named hers.
Wiz: Fun fact, while dogs have been bred as companions for thousands of years, the same only technically started for cats around two hundred years ago. In comparison, they're still sort of wild animals, which makes them self-sufficient, but also standoffish.
Boomstick: And lazy.
Wiz: Then Beerus may be the apotheosis of all catdom. When he's not effortlessly annihilating solar systems, he's napping for decades.
Boomstick: Ho ho, but when he wakes up, he takes his job seriously. He's way stronger and faster than any mortal. Look at him go! That's his God of Destruction's Wrath technique. He's got spheres of destruction, beams of destruction, sneezes of destruction, giant energy yarn balls of destruction, oh, and cat-aclysmic orbs. Nya.
Wiz: He can neutralize energy attacks from others, which is frankly just unfair. But his most awe-inspiring technique is Hakai.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Wiz: See, Beerus' enormous level of power stems from an unearthly source. To demonstrate, allow me to introduce our brand new Disposable Unit for Meticulous Matchup Investigations, AKA, DUMMI.
(A floating, orb shaped robot hovers in)
DUMMI: Hello, Mr. Wizard. How may I be exploited today?
Boomstick: You're tryin' to replace me!
Wiz: Now generally speaking, there are three types of ki. Which, to be blunt, is weaponizable life energy. (He picks up a container filled with yellow energy) First, there's normal ki. Most people in the Dragon Ball multiverse have this.
(Wiz opens the container, firing the ki at DUMMI as he screams in pain)
Wiz: Dangerous, but nothing too special. (he picks up a container of blue energy) Gods have their own ki, of course, which is way more potent, but, like all ki, they have a limited amount. (throws it over his shoulder) But when you want the good stuff...
(Wiz picks up a container of purple Hakai energy and opens it at DUMMI, destroying him)
Wiz: You go for destruction energy.
Boomstick: Heh heh, so much for your new sidekick, Wiz.
Wiz: Oh no, there's plenty more. Hakai channels this energy to obliterate something in an instant, erasing both body and soul from existence. The only way to resist is to match Beerus in power.
Boomstick: And he didn't get so strong on his own. He's trained for millions of years under this guy, also named Wiz.
Wiz: No, Whis.
Boomstick: Yeah, that's what I said. He learned pressure point combat, and the super secret Ultra Instinct.
Popup: Goku's Ultra Instinct forms are different manifestations of the technique. Beerus does not possess all the characteristics of the Sign and Autonomous transformations
Wiz: More a state of mind than actual transformation, Autonomous Ultra Instinct describes the ability to instantly respond to attacks without conscious thought getting in the way.
Boomstick: Like he's on a catnip high.
Wiz: With Ultra Instinct, he could even take on multiple other Gods of Destruction at the same time.
Popup: Beerus has not mastered Ultra Instinct, he generally only applies it to defensive techniques.
Boomstick: The only problem with bein' so frickin' powerful is that he got kinda bored, so he was hyped when he learned there was someone out there who might be a challenge for him, the Super Saiyan God. And in their fight over the fate of the Earth, they almost destroyed the whole universe.
Wiz: Our own observable universe is a respectable ninety-three billion light-years across. However, the Dragon Ball universe is noticeably different, as depicted by this symbolic model. The observable universe as we know it fits within that bottom area.
Wiz: A single clash between Beerus and Goku sent ripples of energy rocketing through this entire macro verse in just seven seconds. Even with conservative calculations, these shockwaves must have been moving well over two hundred and forty quadrillion times the speed of light.
Boomstick: Hell, the guy's quick enough to fly between galaxies in just a couple of minutes, so no surprise there. And when him and his fat cat brother Champa got into a fight, they almost tore apart the whole universe themselves! Now talk about a catfight!
Wiz: But despite his incredible power, Beerus eventually did the one thing nobody ever expected. He showed mercy, and spared Earth. Perhaps he saw a glimmer of greatness in Goku's potential, as so many have before him.
Boomstick: Nah, he's just a sucker for tasty food.
Beerus: Well, happy to see you’re finally realizing the full terror of Beerus the Destroyer.
Wiz: The galaxy, the solar system, the planet, the moon. Each is an essential piece in the ever-shifting whirlwind of the cosmos.
Boomstick: That's why they all have their own super protector. Fighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight, they are the classic magical girls.
Popup: Not all Sailor Guardians are women, Tuxedo Mask is the Sailor Guardian of Earth.
Wiz: The Sailor Guardians are warriors entrusted with magnificent powers. It's a Sailor Guardian's job to protect their world from alien threats. You may know one of them, Sailor Moon, real name: Usagi Tsukino... or Serena, or Bunny, depending on which dub you watched.
Boomstick: So, are they like, space Popeyes who sell cookies?
Wiz: Uh, what?
Boomstick: Sailor. Scouts. Duh, Wiz.
Wiz: They're not sailors, they're Sailor Guardians, or Sailor Soldiers. The term "Sailor Scout" comes from the original English dub.
(We see the DIC logo)
Boomstick: (chuckles) You know what you are.
Wiz: Anyway, everything in the universe possesses a form of crystallized life force called a Star Seed. Each Guardian is powered by a special Star Seed which embodies their own planet, a Sailor Crystal.
Boomstick: These give them superhuman powers. They can fly, do magic, shapeshift, heal fast, and are basically immortal. Some of them are even trained by the most dangerous creatures in the world, cats.
Wiz: After many adventures, Sailor Moon would eventually find herself face to face with her greatest foe, a cold-hearted empress of evil.
Boomstick: She was just a nameless lady stuck on some random trashy planet. It was so bad there, she basically gave up on life. Well, until she got her hands on the Sapphire Crystal.
Wiz: The Sapphire Crystal is exponentially powerful, providing unlimited potential that matched her own newly unlimited ego. With all this power amongst the garbage around her, one purpose came to mind: destroy everything.
Boomstick: So, into the universe she went in search of a new home fit for a goddess, the soldier of destruction, Sailor Galaxia.
Wiz: Be it the power or her own mind, Galaxia was cursed with unparalleled vanity, so cosmic in scale that she could not be satisfied until the whole universe bowed before her, or else.
Boomstick: Just like my ex-wife. If she appeared on the horizon, you'd be totally screwed.
Wiz: Galaxia or your ex-wife?
Boomstick: Yes. Galaxia can make explosions big enough to blot out galaxies, and even match the maxed out Eternal Sailor Moon in a fight, who destroyed a whole mirror universe!
Popup: Eternal Sailor Moon defeated Queen Nehelliena, who's presence maintained a universe within the mirror. A weaker form of Sailor Moon also countered her control over it outright.
Wiz: With a simple gesture, Galaxia can wipe anything out of existence, planets, people, other Guardians, you name it.
Boomstick: Plus, she's got all sorts of other magic powers. Teleporting, summoning lightning, mind controlling people by taking their Star Seeds. Oh yeah, she can totally do that.
Popup: In the anime, Galaxia forcibly removes Star Seeds herself. This is not totally congruent within the manga, but still similar. To take a star seed, she evokes Destruction on a victim to eliminate them and restores them as her servants.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick, and Boomstick sips a beer)
Wiz: And like any good anime villain, her attacks have some absolutely ridiculous names, (shows on the monitor) like the Galactica Super String.
Boomstick: Which doesn't actually use any string.
Wiz: Galactica Crunch.
Boomstick: I think I had a bowl of that this morning.
Wiz: And Galactica Inflation.
(A pixelated video is shown on screen, and Boomstick coughs and spits out his beer)
Boomstick: What the hell?!
Wiz: (he covers the screen) AH! How did that get there?! It's not what you think! RESEARCH! You come across a lot of stuff in research!
Boomstick: Wiz, I'm glad to know exactly what kinda guy I'm workin' with.
Wiz: Ahem, uh, so Galaxia carved through the universe at an incredible pace, building her own widespread empire.
Boomstick: She was so friggin' terrifying, that some people would murder their own Sailor Scout as a sacrificial offering just to save themselves. Man, magical girls are metal as hell.
Popup: According to Princess Kakyuu's testimony of Galaxia traveling across the galaxy, Galaxia's flight speed is likely trillions of times faster than light.
Wiz: But Galaxia's destructive path wasn't as reckless as it may seem. Through her travels, she learned of a looming threat to the universe, a primordial entity and source of all evil. And so, she vowed to destroy Chaos.
Boomstick: Yeah, that happens if you watch too much Marie Kondo.
Wiz: But to maintain balance, she also sought to destroy the opposite of Chaos, the embodiment of love and goodness, which is apparently Sailor Moon.
Boomstick: This is where different stories get a bit... wonky.
Wiz: Right, in the anime, Galaxia was a heroic warrior who absorbed Chaos to keep it under control. But Chaos flipped the script and took her body instead. However, this did not happen in the original manga.
Popup: The Chaos Galaxia form is unique to the anime. Given it is non canon and that it is Chaos in control, not Galaxia, the form does not belong in this battle.
Boomstick: Galaxia's warpath lead her to Earth, and she annihilated all the favorite Sailor Scouts. Every. Single. One. Except Sailor Moon. They had to have their epic battle.
Wiz: And Moon is a powerhouse. She once lit up the entire universe with a single attack. This light reached the edge of the universe in four seconds, putting it at 360 quadrillion times lightspeed.
Boomstick: Galaxia was tough enough to survive the grip of Chaos itself, and with her crystal, she never has to worry about runnin' outta energy in a fight. This chick's basically unkillable.
Popup: On multiple occasions, the Silver Crystal is said to possess "infinite power". As the Sapphire Crystal is its antithesis, it's energy supply should be similar.
Wiz: Well, the intense forces of Chaos almost ended her life, until she was saved by Sailor Moon.
Boomstick: And guess what? Apparently, this caused Galaxia to question her resolve and see Meatball Head here in a new light, like, "Hey, maybe this lovey dovey goodness stuff ain't so bad". And then BAM! Her crystal exploded from positivity overload, and she died.
Wiz: Neither Galaxia nor the Sapphire Crystal had ever known this feeling. Ironically, or perhaps befittingly, the weakness of destruction itself was love.
Boomstick: Wiz, she was literally killed by kindness. Who wrote this?
Wiz: Nuance, Boomstick. Regardless, the power Galaxia wields is astonishing. Beneath the heel of her boot, any planet, galaxy, or universe is utterly doomed.
Sailor Galaxia: For this fight belongs to Sailor Galaxia! The most powerful guardian in the galaxy!
(*Cues: Sea Salt Ice Cream - Brandon Yates*)
The scene opens out to a sunny day down on the beach and Lord Beerus, the infamous destroyer god of Universe 7, is relaxing in a deck chair with ice cream in paw, calm as can be.
(*Cues: Gods of Destruction - Brandon Yates*)
The camera moves up to show the earth from space. And someone else is observing the globe. It is none other then the Milky Way's former guardian, Sailor Galaxia. She points a finger at the earth with an evil smile and it explodes into chunks with no effort. The renegade Sailor Scout beams with smugness until the voice of a calm purple pussycat catches her attention from behind.
Beerus: It's unwise to vaporize a god's dessert.
Galaxia laughs off the warning.
Sailor Galaxia: Witness my infinite power!
She charges at her new opponent with two fingers in an attempt to jab the Cat God's eyes, and right as her fingers reach them, he closes them, though the repelling force of her power sends him flying back. Satisfied, Galaxia blows on her fingers like a smoking gun. But her confidence is dashed yet again as Beerus instantly flies back to confront her.
Beerus: So you have chosen death.
The sailor of destruction growls with irritation as her foe lunges forward with his own attempt to jab her eyes. However, she dodges the assault to get behind him and strikes with a harder poke on his cheek. This time Beerus doesn't flinch and shoots a glare and an annoyed frown at her. He knocks her hand away and both destroyers thrust their pokes at each other, only to end in a stalemate. Then at an incredible speed, they carry on poking, neither one hitting their target until they delivered an even more powerful jab which is strong enough to send them both backwards. The attack ends with both combatants waving their arms in agony.
Sailor Galaxia: Ow!
Galaxia then recovers from the recoil.
Sailor Galaxia: Ridiculous! Perish!
Both embodiments of destruction go for their signature finishers but in a blinding flash, the only things annihilated are the surrounding asteroids of what was once Earth. Despite the colossal stalemate, Lord Beerus is impressed.
Beerus: Interesting. Apparently, I've found a worthy foe.
As he rushes in to continue the fight, he fires off a ki blast. Galaxia notices the attack and holds up her Galactica Bracelet to successfully hold it off and keep it in her hand.
Sailor Galaxia: Hah. The hard way it is, then.
She produces a Galactica Crunch energy ball via bracelet and fires both energies back to Beerus, who quickly avoids the explosion. The Empress of Evil summons her Galactica String Shot which she lashes at the cat god like a whip, but he dodges each and every strike. Beerus leaps upwards into a somersault before unleashing God of Destruction's Wrath, showering the scene with hard-hitting balls of ki energy.
Galaxia is struck three times while charging him. She dissipates her whip-like weapon before teleporting and dodging her way to get to Beerus. She is able to get behind him while he is still firing ki balls and with an energy-charged finger, she forces it down conjuring her next move. The void of space suddenly grows a bright shade of gold as lightning crashes down on the purple god, electrifying him in a gigantic blast of electric energy.
Regardless of the swift punishment, Beerus forces himself free and delivers a fast and vicious belly-punch to his adversary. He tries to land another punch but she teleports out of harm's way and high above him from behind, binding her string shot around his tail.
Beerus: Don't you dare.
With a rough tug, she spins the vulnerable cat god around and then hurls him into the sun. The impact of his collison is visible from space. Sailor Galaxia envelops herself within the Galactica Inflation forcefield and darts off in a blurry streak towards the core of the sun. Beerus, having survived his solar dip, emerges and with a roar, creates an enormous sphere of destruction the size of the sun itself, and lobs it at the very same star, just as his adversary reaches it.
From the black abyss of space, the sun glows in a furious fusion of gold, purple and red until finally it goes supernova. Amongst the radiated ruins of the now-dead star, the two destroyers are still fighting with Galaxia shooting two finger beams and a larger two-handed beam which Beerus effortlessly dodges.
Beerus: Now look what you've done!
He fires his own energy beams, which are dodged by the empress.
Sailor Galaxia: This is YOUR fault, you stupid cat!
They collide yet again and the impact sends both of them flying into two different planets that are somehow not affected by the supernova. One is green and the other is red.
On the green planet, Galaxia lands harshly in a village setting. As she stands on her feet to slow her momentum, a voice calls out to her. She can see two green natives greeting her.
Green Planet Folk: Hello there, stranger. Welcome.
The Empress of evil mercilessly strikes the natives with her String Shot, removing their Star Seeds, leaving them at mercy to her commands.
Sailor Galaxia: Kneel for me!
Completely under her spell, the natives do as they are ordered.
Meanwhile on the red planet, Beerus has a rough entrance of his own before he slows his momentum. He is in another similar village setting and just like before, a voice speaks out. This time the natives are red.
Red Planet Folk: Hello there, stranger. Wel-
The red planet blows up as Beerus flies away from it. Now both godly combatants, burning with apocalyptic energy, are again heading for a collision course. The impact is so colossal, it almost covers the whole area of visual space in clashing shades of purple and gold. The rippling effect of the force completely obliterates the green planet, releasing the now deceased population from Galaxia's control.
The remains of the sun is also affected by the impact, turning into a black hole. The immediate vacuum starts drawing in asteroids but for the two combatants, their attention is on defeating the other. Galaxia fires a stronger version of her String Shot which pierces through the destructive energy and wraps around Beerus, trapping him.
Beerus: Hey! No fair!
Galaxia hurls him into a direct course with the black hole. She even follows and fires more energy blasts at him to push him nearer and nearer to his doom. Seeing his one chance, the cat god of Universe 7 taps into the power to awaken Ultra Instinct. He succeeds and breaks free before dodging a blast and ramming into the golden sailor. He kicks her skywards before teleporting and smacking her down with an axe handle.
Beerus: You're no match.
Galaxia fires a beam but Beerus swiftly moves behind her and viciously kicks her forward.
Beerus: You lack the instinct.
As he speaks, he fires a cataclysmic orb. But the defiant sailor still speaks harsh words.
Sailor Galaxia: You're trash! You'll die like dirt!
She throws a String Shot beam that overpowers the orb and pierces through the purple cat, erupting him in golden blazing light. The renegade Sailor Scout laughs loudly in glee knowing what comes next.
Sailor Galaxia: You're all mine!
Beerus' own Star Seed blossoms right in front of him and begins to float towards the evil sailor. However, he breaks out of Sailor Galaxia's control as his Star Seed is drifting away. He clutches the Star Seed in his paw and brings it close to his chest. His sudden action is very shocking to his adversary, who cannot believe what just happened.
Sailor Galaxia: What?! That's... impossible!
Beerus: Now you're catching on.
At that moment Beerus aims and casts a beam, forcing Galaxia into blocking it with her Galactica Bracelets. Now she is the one being pushed into the path of the black hole closer and closer.
Beerus: I AM the impossible!
Beerus punches the beam, increasing it's power. Galaxia lets out a scream as the beam breaks through her Galactica Bracelets and continues on to destroy her torso and rip her to pieces, leaving her remains to be sucked into the black hole.
The last godly destroyer standing makes one final remark.
Beerus: That... was for my ice cream.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Boomstick: Holy crap, this fight was so intense. I'm gonna get a beer for us. Wait... Beer-us, Whis-key, Champa-gne?! Oh my God, all the cats are named after booze! I like 'em now.
Wiz: This was a fairly balanced matchup. Galaxia's powerset was certainly enough to keep up with Beerus.
Boomstick: Especially since she had so many more versatile techniques than him.
Wiz: Not to mention her crystal provided unlimited energy, while Beerus had a vast, but still finite pool of ki.
Boomstick: But that's about where it all starts tiltin' the other way. Based on how fast their galaxy spanning attacks were, Galaxia did have a slight edge in attack speed. But Beerus' Ultra Instinct made up for it. Plus, he had expert martial arts training, while Galaxia had none of that. Speed alone wasn't winnin' this fight.
Popup: It is unlikely either could erase the other with their specific Destruction powers, given their ability to control and resist Destruction in their own stories, as well as the power levels of characters who have previously resisted such Destruction.
Wiz: Also, Beerus' skill set countered many of her own attacks. His energy nullification for example, let him blast through plenty of her offensive options.
Popup: Many Dragon Ball characters weaker than Beerus have broken out of separate dimensions through sheer force. Beerus should be capable of the same, countering any dimensional ensnarement Galaxia could throw at him.
Boomstick: But to really lock down Beerus' superiority in all things destruction, how about we compare their power output?
Wiz: Both of them used attacks that spanned their whole universe in seconds. But remember, the Dragon Ball universe is much bigger than our own.
Boomstick: Right, this universe is at least nine times bigger than ours, and Beerus almost destroyed it all.
Popup: The Sailor Moon universe does have a few locations outside the usual scope of space-time, such as the Galaxy Cauldron, but not enough to suggest a drastic increase in size compared to our own universe.
Wiz: For the most part, the universe in Sailor Moon is very much based on our own. And the same should be said for Nehellenia's mirror universe Usagi destroyed.
Boomstick: So, pretty clear cut? This means Beerus is nine times stronger then Galaxia?
Wiz: Well, not exactly. They both are likely much stronger. Galaxia matched Endgame Eternal Sailor Moon in battle, who could destroy eight of her Animamate minions at once.
Boomstick: Did you say Animorphs?
Wiz: Long story short, a single Animamate could match a Sailor Guardian equal in power to Sailor Moon when she destroyed that mirror universe. While this is, admittedly, a very highball estimate, defeating eight Animamates at once could logically translate to possessing eight times that power. Since Galaxia could match her in combat, this potentially puts Galaxia's output level much closer to Beerus and Goku's clash.
Popup: Given the attack was performed with a physical clash, Beerus would've had to endure a force equal to the resulting shockwaves.
Boomstick: But the shockwave happened when Goku had only just gone Super Saiyan God for the first time. Beerus claimed he was going "all out", with a hundred percent of his power. But like all cats, he was lying.
Popup: In the "Battle of Gods" movie, Whis claims Beerus was using 70% of his power. The anime later adjusted this statement, but regardless, these statements were later confirmed as false.
Whis: Telling Goku that you were using 100% of your power was a very clever tactic to draw out his full strength, even though it wasn't true.
Wiz: Even after Goku later achieved Super Saiyan Blue with Kaio-ken, a form many many times more powerful than his first go at being a redhead, Beerus was still considered his superior.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Wiz: Simply put, even if we highball Galaxia and lowball Beerus, the God of Destruction still possessed a greater amount of power. Both in offense and defense, as they are identical when it comes to Dragon Ball ki. Isn't that right, DUMMI?
DUMMI: Sailor Galaxia may have had a more versatile arsenal, but Lord Beerus had the strength, durability, and technique needed to overpower her. But you already said all that, so what's the point? Like my existence.
Boomstick: You could say she got caught in a galaxy sized cat-astrophe. Can I blow him up this time?
DUMMI: I look forward to it.
Wiz: The winner is Lord Beerus.
The track for this fight is "Gods of Destruction" by Brandon Yates. This track has a heavy emphasis on the usage of electric keyboards and drums to bring out the destructive abilities Beerus and Galaxia share. It also has chanting choir similar to the Hakai theme, playing prominently once one minute into the track and again near the end of it.
The title refers to both of them being godly beings with destructive power, as well as referencing their titles (Beerus: The God of Destruction and Sailor Galaxia: The Sailor of Destruction).
The track cover shows the silhouette of Beerus' head perched on a cresent moon, with a purple Star Seed seen above the head, referencing Beerus' Star Seed near the end of the fight.
- The connections between Beerus and Sailor Galaxia are that they are both beings of destruction with Egyptian motifs, have similar egotistical personalities, and have destroyed planets and star systems, ending countless lives. Yet at point in their stories showed a significant sign of mercy/kindness. Both are also assigned to a certain sector that includes an Earth (Beerus is the God of Destruction of Universe 7's fictional earth while Sailor Galaxia is/was the Guardian of the Milky Way Galaxy's real-life earth).
- Despite the fact that these two are considered beings of destruction, they do it for opposite reasons; Beerus does it because it's his job, and the universe needs destruction so that new things can be created, while Galaxia does it only for a personal whim that doesn't benefit anyone else.
