This article is about the original version of Death Battle's first episode. You may be looking for the remastered version of Boba Fett VS Samus Aran or the original Who Would Win? pilot version of the episode.


Episode 1 - Star Wars VS Metroid! What would happen if combatants from the worlds of video games, comics, movies and pop culture all squared off in a DEATH BATTLE!? Absolute chaos.

Boba Fett VS Samus Aran, retroactively titled Boba Fett VS Samus Aran (2010), is the first episode and Series Premiere of Death Battle, featuring Boba Fett from the Star Wars series and Samus Aran from the Metroid series in a battle between galactic bounty hunters.


Wiz: The bounty hunter. Galactic pirates of living beings.

Boomstick: They blow shit up for cash.

Wiz: A prime example is Boba Fett, the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy.

Boomstick: But don't forget Samus Aran. She's so badass, whole planets explode when she's done with them. BOOM!

Wiz: I'm Wizard.

Boomstick: And I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze the weapons, armor, and skills of these two beastly killers and answer the most important question of all: Which of these two warriors would win... a Death Battle.

Wiz: Boba Fett is well known for his cunning, ruthlessness, and brute force. But his killer instinct relies on his diverse arsenal of death.

Boomstick: Plus, he wears the most badass spacesuit ever.

Wiz: That's no ordinary spacesuit, Boomstick; that's Fett's Mandalorian Armor, forged of nearly indestructible Duraplast, containing a micro-energy field for dispersing impacts.

Boomstick: This guy can have a freaking bomb blow up in his face and still walk away.

Wiz: His gauntlets house a flamethrower with a reach of five meters, a fibercord whip, and numerous concussion and stun missiles. His weapon of choice is his EE-3 Carbine Rifle, an extremely accurate and powerful weapon which Fett often cradles like a child.

Boomstick: Yeah, I do that with my guns, too...

Wiz: That's... not weird at all, Boomstick. Fill us in on Fett's heavy weaponry.

Boomstick: Well, everybody and their grandmother knows that Fett can zoom around on his badass jetpack, but that jetpack also has a single anti-vehicle homing rocket, and believe me, you don't want to see this thing heading your way.

Wiz: That's right, Boomstick. In short, Fett is a human Swiss Army knife. He's killed hundreds of criminals, politicians, and Jedi. He's even held his own against Darth Vader... twice.

Boomstick: Holy shit, that is hardcore!

Wiz: He became leader of the Mandalorian mercenaries after the Galactic Civil War, and battled Mace Windu to a draw when he was 12 years old.

Boomstick: Sam Jackson's got nothing on him.

Wiz: But with all his awesomeness, every so often Fett will totally blow it. He's fallen into the Sarlacc three times. Three! And the Sarlacc's not exactly running around looking for snacks.

Boomstick: Three times? How do you even do that once? It's a giant hole in the ground with teeth, and he's got a jetpack!

Wiz: Still, even with his ridiculous flaws, Boba Fett is a whole new meaning of deadly.

Darth Vader: No disintegrations.

Boba Fett: As you wish.

Samus Aran

Wiz: Samus Aran was infused with bird-like Chozo DNA at a young age, increasing her strength, speed, and athletic ability far beyond those of a normal human being.

Boomstick: How do they do that?! I want me some bird DNA!

Wiz: She wears the Power Suit, typically in Varia form, shielding her entire body without restricting any movement or flexibility.

Boomstick: Too bad it makes her look like a dude...

Wiz: Her primary weapon, the Arm Cannon, has acquired numerous awesome upgrades over the years. Though, the basic Power Beam is a pea shooter with a pathetic range.

Boomstick: But when it's fully charged, it'll blow your face off. BAM! Shoop Da Whoop!

Wiz: The Arm Cannon can also use an Ice Beam, a Grapple Beam, and a plethora of seeking and super missiles. Samus controls the skies with a powerful and speedy Screw Attack, and if there's trouble on the battlefield, she can curl up into Morph Ball mode and slip away unnoticed.

Boomstick: What the f-?! How does she do that?

Wiz: Bird DNA, Boomstick. Bird DNA.

Boomstick: Samus also has a freakin' huge supply of Power Bombs, which will destroy anything on the screen in seconds. Nothing survives!

Wiz: She is known to be the bounty hunter capable of taking on impossible missions, fighting massive beasts and even wiping out an entire species. However, she often makes mistakes. Somehow, she always seems to lose all her power ups and upgrades at the beginning of every mission.

Boomstick: Man, someone get this chick a purse.

Samus: Time to go.


Wiz: The combatants are set. Let's end this debate once and for all!

Boomstick: But first, we gotta pay off my double barrel bazooka shotgun, thanks to Netflix.

Wiz and Boomstick read out an advertisement for Netflix.

Boomstick: Oh yeah, well it's time for a Death Battle!

Samus is shown flying through space in her spaceship. However, Boba Fett's ship, the Slave I, shoots at her ship, throwing it out of orbit and landing on Earth, where it crash lands somewhere in the middle of a futuristic city. Samus gets out of her ship and Fett hovers down to where Samus landed.

Samus shoots her Power Beams, that fade out almost instantly, not even reaching her opponent. Fett counters with a few shots from his blaster, but Samus jumps in the air, firing a missile at Fett, which hits. When she lands, Fett hits her with his flamethrower. When Samus jumps back and shoots another missile, Fett flies up using his jet pack. However, Samus goes after him using her Screw Attack and eventually hits him, which forces him to the ground.

When Samus lands, Fett shoots missiles at her. He then fires his anti-vehicle homing missile, which Samus escapes by going into Morph Ball mode and escaping through a doorway.

Fett cautiously creeps toward the doorway as Samus sneaks behind him in Morph Ball mode and plants a Power Bomb near his feet.

The bomb explodes and it takes off a large chunk of Fett's health. His suit having withstood the blast, Fett sees Samus and fires a missile at her. Samus dodges by stepping to the side and then freezes Fett using her Ice Beam. She then moves toward the frozen bounty hunter and begins charging her arm cannon. With the charge at its apex and Boba Fett's body slightly moving as he tries to break free of the ice, Samus positions her arm cannon toward his head.

Samus: You're mine.

With the charge at its maximum before Boba Fett could escape, Samus fires her Charge Beam point-blank, knocking his head clean from his body.

Boomstick: Holy shit! Did you see that, Wiz? That was insane!

Wiz: Fett battled like a champ, but in the end, Samus' superior technology and athletic skill trumped him... hard. While her basic Power Beam failed miserably, Samus put her Chozo DNA to work by jumping and dodging around Fett's offenses. Boba Fett, who relies more on cunning and brute force, simply didn't have the means necessary to catch Samus.

Boomstick: He was shooting all over the place, but that space chick was just too quick for him. He even tried to use his homing rocket, but anybody whose blown up a lot of shit knows anti-vehicle rockets don't work too well with people.

Wiz: Exactly. Samus is about four times smaller than the average vehicle, so there's only about a one in four chance for a direct hit from Fett's rocket. Not to mention she kept moving, preventing Fett from getting a solid lock on her.

Boomstick: After that screw up, Samus managed to sneak around Fett and left a little surprise at his feet.

Wiz: Fett's micro-energy field managed to minimize the damage he took from the power bomb, but by that point, it was all over. Samus froze Fett with her Ice Beam and finished him off with a Charge Beam to the face.

Boomstick: She sure stopped him cold.

We cut to the "Samus Aran" winner card.

Wiz: That's right, Boomstick. The winner is Samus Aran.



  • The connections between Boba Fett and Samus Aran are that they are both bounty hunters who operate across the entire galaxy, possessing futuristic technology, armor, weaponry, and a spaceship. Both are extremely skilled and experienced, having visited and fought many alien planets and species, and as a result are often hired by a large galactic organization (the Galactic Empire and the Galactic Federation, respectively). Both have also been genetically modified (Boba is a clone of Jango Fett and Samus was infused with Chozo DNA) and witnessed their parents die in front of them at a young age, which changed their lives forever.
    • This matchup, along with Death Battle as a whole, was inspired by Monty Oum's Haloid, an animation depicting a fight between Samus and Nicole-458 from Halo/Dead or Alive.
  • Being the first episode, there are some notable differences compared to later episodes of the show, including:
    • Wiz and Boomstick's voices not being as defined as later episodes, with Boomstick's voice not being very distinct from Wiz and Wiz's voice being more energetic and not as calm as it is later on.
    • This being the only episode where both Wiz and Boomstick introduce themselves.
    • This being one of only three times Wiz's pre-fight catchphrase does not include "alright" at the start, with the next two being Goku VS Superman 2 and SpongeBob VS Aquaman.
    • This being one of only two times where life bars are used in the fight, with the next one being Akuma VS Shang Tsung.
  • In the preshow of the livestream premiere of the remastered episode, the unaired pilot version of this episode, created by Ben Singer in early 2010, was shown.
  • In Death Battle's first Q&A, when asked "Will you redo Fett vs Samus because Fett resists cold?", Wiz replied that Fett's armor being cold-resistant would not protect him from being frozen by the Ice Beam.


  • In the YouTube description, the link to the remastered episode is actually just a link to this episode instead.
  • Due to this being the first episode, many grammatical errors are seen throughout it. Examples of such include "Indestructible" being mispelled as "Indestructable" in Boba Fett's "Mandalorian Body Armor" slide and "Upgrade" being mispelled as "Updrage" in Samus' "Arm Cannon" slide.
  • Ironically, despite writing in a joke that it shared its name with the website that (at the time) hosted Death Battle, Samus' "Screw Attack" slide is accidentally titled as "Mitrinomon Z-6 Jetpack" (Boba Fett's jetpack) instead of the upgrade's name.
