(*Cues: Wiz & Boomstick - Brandon Yates*)
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Wiz: Speed. It's the ultimate sensation on the human body.
Boomstick: And today, we're pittin' together two of the fastest characters out there.
Wiz: With these two, speed is far more than simply moving fast. Wally West, the fastest Flash from DC Comics.
Boomstick: And Sonic from Archie Comics, the most supersonic Sonic of all the Sonics.
(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: The year was 1985, and the multiverse was in crisis. Infinite earths were on the brink of total annihilation.
Boomstick: But one man could save the day by running really, really, really fast. The Flash. Aaahhh!~
Wiz: To save everything and everyone, Barry Allen sacrificed his life.
Boomstick: But the Flash wasn't all gone. Barry had a sidekick. You might say, a pro-tee-gee.
Boomstick: Wally West!
Wiz: Despite the impressive amount of coincidences Barry needed to gain his speed, many others have possessed the powers of the Scarlet Speedster. But for Wally, his own coincidence is unparalleled.
Boomstick: Let's see, President of the Flash Fan Club, nephew to Flash's girlfriend, who introduced him, visited while Flash had a chemical lab set up exactly like it was when he got his powers, then, just like Barry, Wally got struck by lightning that knocked him into the chemicals, and boom! Flash powers. I would say this kid was super lucky, but... he did get struck by lightning.
Wiz: The true reason, because Speed Force. A dimension of infinite kinetic energy, which all Flashes draw their power from.
Boomstick: And the DC writers' favorite scapegoat for retcons.
Wiz: With his newfound ability, Wally joined Barry's crime-fighting heroics as Kid Flash. Strong of head and light of heart, he was more than a sidekick, he was a surrogate son.
Boomstick: So, when Barry went poof, naturally, Wally stepped up to be the next Crimson Comet himself.
Wiz: As the Flash...
Wiz: Stop doing that! Wally obviously possesses incredible speed, easily surpassing that of light. He can run non-stop for multiple days.
Boomstick: Forget runnin', this guy looks at reality and spits in its face before givin' it a swirlie.
Wiz: Wally can manipulate each and every one of his molecules to, for instance, survive the inside of a black hole. Barry even once regenerated from a cloud of gas.
Popup: Scaling to Barry, Wally should be able to keep his own atoms from being controlled or dispersed by molecular manipulation.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Boomstick: I bet he never has any trouble with NARBs.
Boomstick: No Apparent Reason Boners? They're devious. Always poppin' up where you least expect 'em.
Wiz: Wally can create tornadoes, toss lightning, and heal from deadly blows. These techniques are rooted in scientific theory and often require a mathematical mindset. For example, by vibrating his body at very precise frequencies, he can turn invisible, phase through objects, tear things apart while phasing through them, and even enter fourth-dimensional space.
Boomstick: So, you're sayin' he'd never be able to do any of this if he was dumb. (He sips a beer)
Wiz: Well, that's exactly what I decided to find out when I laced your beer with cosmic kinetic energy.
(Boomstick's eyes widen)
Wiz: It'll kick in later. With a touch, Wally can steal another's speed and use it for himself. Specifically, he can take a person's kinetic energy, instantly stopping them in their tracks or even freezing them for centuries. Even from those who are not linked to the Speed Force, like Superman.
Boomstick: And his Infinite Mass Punch can knock you across the whole planet!
Wiz: Applying the laws of relativity, as Wally's fist approaches lightspeed, its mass technically grows to an infinite degree, striking with kinetic energy equivalent to a white dwarf star, or about 2.6 octillion tons of force. In fact, increasing the vibrational speed even further could break the universe.
Popup: The Speed Force protects Wally's body while performing inhuman acts of speed, including the recoil and impact of each Infinite Mass Punch.
Boomstick: The biggest nuke ever tested was fifty megatons. One punch from Wally is, like, forty million of those.
Wiz: Even more wild, Wally can change his vibration frequencies to affect alien energies that do not exist in his own reality.
Boomstick: It's how he helped take out these aliens called Quantum Mechanics.
Wiz: Beings far beyond any physical dimension and immune to ordinary physics.
Boomstick: So, like a prism, Wally changed Superman's heat vision into super space magic to blast 'em all.
Popup: Wally can count in attosecond time frames, a trick taught to him by Barry Allen.
Wiz: All of this is absolutely insane to contemplate, but it is important to remember that Wally is, somehow, still human.
Boomstick: And a huge dork. But a fun one, not like Wiz over here. I mean, he got married and has kids, so...
Wiz: Boomstick, I'm married.
Wiz: Uh, to my work! And Wally's family became sort of a cosmic lightning rod, rooting him to reality when he time travels. Right, Boomstick? He can time travel, isn't that fascinating?
Boomstick: I feel like you're trying to give me the runaround. Speakin' of which, that's how he time travels, by running.
Wiz: Should Wally become unmoored, he can outrun the Speed Force itself, even running to the end of reality, where the concept of death no longer exists.
Popup: By becoming unmoored, Wally was so fast he could think multiple thoughts at once, and throw 100,000 punches as one.
Boomstick: One time, he beat these gambler gods in a race across the universe, and ahem, they could teleport.
Wiz: To win, Wally achieved trans-time velocity in less than one unit of Planck time, which is so infinitesimal, it is the absolute edge of measurable time itself. He was so fast, reality does not have any means to calculate or even comprehend his speed.
Popup: While Wally did need to steal speed for this, he also refused to fully tap into the Speed Force. He has since gone faster without aid.
Boomstick: That's f***ing crazy! But, for some reason, Wally still felt unworthy of the Flash mantle. Come on, man, look at everything you can do!
Wiz: Until one day, Barry returned.
Boomstick: Because Speed Force.
Wiz: To determine the fastest Flash of all, Wally and Barry raced each other. This simple contest nearly tore apart the entire multiverse.
Boomstick: But, our Kid Flash finally let it all out and won.
Wiz: Even with those unimaginable feats, Wally's greatest challenge was proving his worth to himself.
Boomstick: He's not just another Flash, he's the fastest being in the multiverse.
Wally: Dude, as soon as you finish your drink, turn yourself in.
Trickster: (raising his mug) Got me again, Flash!
Wiz: Many, many years from now, Earth will be no more.
Boomstick: So, yeah, comic book Sonic is a little different from the video games. While leading his Care Bear Viet-Cong in the fight against obesity and male pattern baldness, Sonic became a super skilled fighter. And he wasn't doin' it for nothin'. Ro-butt-nik had turned his entire family into robot slaves, what a dick.
Wiz: Sonic is fast as always, but in this timeline, "fast" takes on new meaning. He's quick enough to create tornadoes, cause afterimages, turn invisible, phase through objects, and boost past lightspeed in a blink of an eye. He can dodge lightning, and even move in between the raindrops of a downpour.
Boomstick: Look at this! He grabbed water and threw it like a baseball, in less than .0000- uh, a lot of zeroes in a millisecond. He can run around the entire Cosmic Interstate in less than a day, and that's a highway that cuts through the multiverse. How does he get that fast on an all-chili dog diet? I mean, they give me the runs, but not in that way.
Popup: Throwing water at the roboticized Flicky occurred in about 100 attoseconds. It takes 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 attoseconds to make up one second of time.
Wiz: Ugh... He could reverse a black hole generator with his momentum alone, which then imploded, somehow sending him 849,000 lightyears away. Sonic's speed is so impressive that he can even move through stopped time. Let me repeat that, time was frozen, and he could still move. There is no earthly method of measuring such impossibility. In the words of the comic itself, Sonic's speed is incalculable.
Popup: Despite being a "Roboticized Master" at the time, it is directly stated that Sonic's speed alone could resist time manipulation. In the Archie continuity, Wily's robots cannot resist Flash Man's Time Stopper.
Boomstick: I know the Archie Sonic comics can get weird, like, really weird, but that's just crazy!
Wiz: You call it crazy, I call it chaos.
Boomstick: Just like my conception, I'm told.
Wiz: Ahem, no no no, I mean, chaos, as in the Chaos Force, an extra-dimensional field of infinite and omnipotent energy. This "chaos" takes physical form on Mobius in the shape of magical power rings and perfectly hewn emeralds.
Boomstick: And Sonic loves collecting those rings. By the time he'd scooped up a billion of 'em, the gods were so impressed, they put him in a book of world records, and gave him a permanent force field that makes him way tougher than anybody else.
Wiz: Along with shielding his spirt and mind. But that's not all. By gathering a large amount of chaos energy, he can transform into the almighty golden Super Sonic.
Boomstick: Eat your heart out, Akira Toriyama.
Wiz: Super Sonic possesses incredible power. He can use Chaos Energy for defensive barriers and beams capable of shattering moons.
Boomstick: Somehow, he's even faster than before, and he's totally invincible, like when he fought the demigod, and possible power drink, Enerjak. This guy could rip people apart, molecule by molecule, but no dice with Super Sonic.
Wiz: Like the video games, Sonic's super forms have a time limit, and now this limit can even be cut short through overuse of power. However, he battled Enerjak from day into night, so it must be able to naturally last much longer than the games, potentially over an hour.
Popup: Super Sonic's extended duration here may be due to his use of the Master Emerald, which is eleven Chaos Emeralds combined. Other instances last a shorter amount of time.
Boomstick: But that's not even his final form! If he's got somethin' as good as a Super Emerald around, he can go Ultra!
Wiz: Ultra Sonic appears to possess all of Super Sonic's abilities and then some. Specifically, he can tap into the raw magic of chaos.
Boomstick: Yeah, there's a bunch of wizards runnin' around Archie Sonic-land, like this Mammoth Mogul guy. Turns out, they're all using the same chaos force.
Wiz: Ultra Sonic can manipulate matter at an atomic level, changing its fundamental makeup.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Boomstick: Turning air to water, moving rocks around, opening portals across space-time, that kinda stuff. But while he's never changed other living beings before, it's not totally out of the question, right, DUMMI?
(DUMMI floats in)
DUMMI: You're correct, Boomstick. Although Ultra Sonic is not as proficient, this ugly monster wizard uses the same chaos magic, and he changed a partial robot rabbit into a full regular rabbit. A sentence so absurd, it likely damaged my internal processor.
Wiz: Don't worry, it was never great, I took it from a refrigerator. Ultra Sonic has altered his own body to better traverse difficult terrain. With all this in mind, he could, theoretically, be able to change the molecular makeup of others, too. Just like this. (He takes out a remote and pushes a button, turning DUMMI into fire)
Boomstick: But, if changing molecules isn't crazy enough, we need to talk about something even crazier.
Wiz: Chaos itself. Chaos magic is typically used for one of three things: Increasing physical ability, providing lost knowledge, and granting wishes.
Boomstick: Like a frickin' genie! Sonic's wished to reverse brainwashing, turn back time, revive the dead, and even rewrote all reality in his whole multiverse with a Kamehameha chaos beam. Okay, if he can literally just wish his problems away, you'd think he'd have way less trouble dealing with a fat ginger named after breakfast food.
Popup: Chaos Magic has some limits, acquiring knowledge takes intense concentration with vague results. Sonic could not recreate the Super Genesis Wave on his own, and time travel does not include methods of previewing past or future events.
Wiz: Honestly, he rarely did, but Sonic's a glutton for adventure and action, so over the years, he and the good Doctor formed an unhealthy co-dependent relationship.
Popup: Through use of Power Rings, essentially accessible containers of chaos magic, has restored speed previously removed from him, much to Silver's chagrin.
Boomstick: Just like us. Life's not the same without his oval-shaped enemy to beat up on, so they're back at it every chance they get. Come on guys, just get a room, already.
Wiz: But after being defeated so many times, both Eggman and Mogul independently came to the same conclusion. By collecting so many rings and emeralds over the years, Sonic has become a literal embodiment of chaos itself. As in, he's a variable that cannot be accounted for, a wrench in the cogs of reality. Without him even realizing it, fate bends to him.
Popup: Sonic survived ground zero of the Ultimate Annihilator firing upon itself. However, all of Mobius was erased for a moment and immediately restored, not just Sonic, as the weapon was programmed to only target Robotnik. It appears Sonic's billionth ring aura may have also transported him away from the location, similar to Chaos Control warping.
Boomstick: You know you're a badass when the most powerful chaos wizard out there decides the only way to beat you is to just wait until you die of old age.
Wiz: It's ridiculous, it's absurd, it's unexplainable!
Boomstick: It's Sonic the friggin' Hedgehog.
Sonic: Ooh, I'd like to hang, but I've gotta juice!
(*Cues: Way Past Flash - Brandon Yates*)
We see Wally West and Archie Sonic running in the Cosmic Interstate.
Sonic: You really think you can outrun moi?
Wally: I'm the fastest man alive.
Sonic: Oh yeah, cherry-flavored chump? I'm the fastest THING alive!
Sonic boosts in front of Wally and the two start racing in the Cosmic Interstate. We then cut to the two as Sonic goes past him boasting him with a chili dog.
Sonic: Want a bite?
Wally rushes past him and snatches his chili dog with Sonic feeling anger as Wally scarfs the Blue Blur's snack.
Wally: What's the matter? You're too slow?
Sonic spin-dashes at the Flash's sidekick which results in them going off-road and landing on another piece of the interstate. Wally crashes while Sonic lands, he then charges up his speed.
Sonic: Don't mess with the hog's dogs!
Sonic sprints towards and past Wally and the two clash as Sonic strikes only for Wally to dodge his attacks. Flash then throws a punch as Sonic throws his own. The two clash multiple times in the Cosmic Interstate. Until Sonic finds himself eye to eye with the Scarlet Speedster who proceeds to pummel him with lightspeed punches, but halfway through the barrage, he blocks and breaks off, landing on a road on the other side of the Cosmic Interstate. Both fleet-footed heroes kept going until they were on a road together again. The hedgehog budges the Flash.
Sonic: Say uncle!
Wally knocks right back, with an extra boast.
Wally: Flash fact: I'm out of your league.
Sonic knocks him again with more force. But the Flash touches him and absorbs his kinetic energy, rendering the Blue Blur devoid of his own speed. Wally immediately zooms off down the long road laughing, leaving a frustrated Sonic in the dust.
Wally: Haha, thanks for the speed!
No sooner Sonic gets to his feet, he notices something hovering above him. It is a conveniently placed Super Emerald. The hedgehog's confidence bounces back.
Sonic: Huh? A Super Emerald? I'll show you!
The Flash still speeds on, oblivious to the explosion of radiant energy happening far behind him. Once that dies down, a smaller form of light is picking up pace really fast until the rejuvenated form of Super Sonic rams into Wally, stopping him in his tracks.
Super Sonic kicks his opponent's body up high and punishes him with speed-blitzing body strikes, climaxing with a spin-dash to his back. Like a blazing comet, they smash through two of the Cosmic Interstate's roads before ending up in the void of a wormhole.
On the other side of that wormhole lies the Special Zone and the Flash crash lands on one of its planetoids.
Just as Wally comes to, he sees his glowing, levitating rival coming straight towards him and so runs further to gain momentum while spinning his wrist really fast to build up some lightning. He aims and fires a powerful surge of lightning that strikes the hedgehog. But something else happens; Super Sonic absorbs it and taps more into the Chaos Force. The result transformed him into Ultra Sonic.
Wally is still running and narrowly avoids lightning from the transformation. He is flanked by Ultra Sonic who starts to charge him. The Scarlet Speedster charges as much energy as he can for an Infinite Mass Punch. But as fist meets head, the highly invincible hedgehog powers through dragging the Flash around the single planetoid many times.
Ultra Sonic stops, which allows Wally to cease skidding and compose himself. He rushes back into the fight but Ultra Sonic alters the ground's molecules, turning the surface into ice. The Flash rapidly loses traction and helplessly slides forward.
The hedgehog kicks the costumed human in the back, propelling his tumbling body further away to the far distances of the planetoid. He then waits impatiently before noticing his adversary's returning body, coming back from a full lap around the planetoid. By altering the air, he throws a stream of fire towards his target. Wally reorients himself in time to rapidly vibrate his molecules and phase through safely, rearranging himself behind the Mobian.
Ultra Sonic is caught off-guard as the Flash tackles him, drawing into the Speed Force itself. Once there, Wally slams his rival through one dimension; resulting in the pair of them being in Central City at night. The Fastest Man Alive drags the Blue Blur even more back into the Speed Force, returning back to the Special Zone dimension. With a spinning throw, Wally hurls the Mobian through several planetoids. Ultra Sonic, however, isn't at all seriously hurt. And as the Flash lands, he looks up to see his opponent mentioning his advantage over him.
Sonic: Nice try! But I'm invincible when I'm like this! You've mastered speed, but I've mastered fate! And I wish you gone! Forever!
Harnessing the power of fate, Ultra Sonic creates a green glowing orb that is increasing in power. The Flash notices this and again vibrates his molecules. This time, the force is much stronger, it launches him off the planetoid towards his opponent head-on, leaving an enormous crater where he left.
Sonic: CHAOS... CONTROL!
Ultra Sonic unleashes the Chaos Control laser and it is a direct hit. With urgency, Wally calls out to his loved ones in order to remain in reality before being consumed by the Speed Force.
The gambit works and the Crimson Comet powers through, landing a hard haymaker on the hedgehog. As they are blasting through the dimension's atmosphere, Wally breaks into the Speed Force again, this time he is illuminated with intense kinetic energy, his hair igniting like flames. The ascent halts when he suddenly vanishes in a blinding flash. Ultra Sonic is left by himself, confused as to where the costumed human went.
Wally uses his momentum in the Speed Force to travel forward in time, more specifically to the exact moment when the hedgehog's Ultra form wore off. Wally smashes through that dimensional scene with an Infinite Mass Punch, shattering the Super Emerald and striking Sonic. Screams of anguish echo through the void as Sonic's form spasms uncontrollably as the chaos energy is overloaded and Sonic is forced to relive every second of his life before disintegrating, leaving the freedom fighter to become nothing but dimensional dust.
The fight over, Wally West is left drifting alone to witness the inter-dimensional damage around him.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Wiz: So.. that happened.
Boomstick: Yeah, uh, what happened, exactly?
Wiz: Well, this matchup was incredibly complex. Given their speeds were impossible to calculate, speed alone was, ironically, somewhat of a non-factor in comparison.
(Boomstick vibrates for a second, Wiz looks at him)
Wiz: Sonic, in his base form, really didn't stand a chance against Wally. Sure, he did seem to survive being launched eight hundred forty-nine thousand lightyears into an alien planet by a black hole imploding. However, considering he's been knocked out by far less, black holes are already imploding stars, and it seems some snow also inexplicably survived the trip, it's probably more likely the black hole acted as a sort of wormhole in its last moments, and sent Sonic directly there. But if we assume Sonic was indeed blasted through space, a black hole's last moment usually results in an abrupt detonation equivalent to five trillion tons of TNT. Impressive, but the Infinite Mass Punch could still deliver over two quadrillion times more power.
Popup: While Sonic has occasionally broken the fourth wall, he has not done so to benefit himself or others in a fight or other serious situations. These rare moments are likely nothing more than non-canon gags.
Boomstick: But Sonic's super forms were a different story. They had answers to almost all of Wally's skills. His chaos energy could replenish stolen speed, he was invincible, and he had frickin' wish powers!
Wiz: Personally, I was expecting the opposite result. Against almost anybody else, Archie's version of Sonic is practically unbeatable. But across a greater percentage of possible scenarios, Wally just happens to be the exception.
Popup: Sonic's attack on the roboticized Flicky took 100 attoseconds. Barry Allen claims he can perceive events that occur in less than a single attosecond, and Wally is proven to be faster. The Flashes have many more impressive feats of processing complex information instantly, such as learning construction and assembling a building in mere seconds.
Boomstick: He had every counter he needed, too. The speed steal wouldn't stop Super Sonic, but Wally still got that stolen speed for himself.
Wiz: Super and Ultra Sonic were, essentially, batteries of unlimited kinetic energy Wally could pull from. Even with their speeds being incalculable, this meant Wally could ensure he was faster. Plus, Wally performed a lot more of those incalculable speed feats than Sonic ever did, so he technically held an experience advantage in that field.
Boomstick: Chaos wish power would be an insta-win against basically anybody, but chaos magic uses physical energy, and guess what? Wally could phase through reality-warping energy.
Popup: For the reboot, writer Ian Flynn says the Chaos Force was dropped as a concept, implying the Super Genesis Wave may have erased it. Even if true, Sonic likely could not affect the Speed Force in the same way. The DC multiverse is far larger, and it is unlikely Sonic can perfectly recreate the SGW as in "Worlds Unite".
Wiz: And jump through time, or vibrate to a higher spatial dimension to avoid Sonic altogether. Even though he had no way to take down Sonic's super forms, Wally has proven capable of effortlessly moving and vibrating at top speeds for days on end.
Popup: By vibrating through the fourth dimension, Wally becomes untouchable by anything occupying three dimensional space, making him virtually invincible as long as he keeps vibrating. He must maintain vibrations at all times while time travelling, and can do at length without issue.
Boomstick: So, it wasn't too hard for him to just wait out the super forms and strike at the first good opportunity.
Wiz: And when it came to Ultra Sonic's ability to alter atomic structures, Wally possessed perfect control over his own individual molecules.
Popup: As in the battle, Wally could time travel to the exact moment Sonic's super form time limit ends. Note that Sonic has much less experience with time travel than Wally, and cannot glimpse past or future events like the Speed Force grants to time traveling speedsters.
Boomstick: But hey, Sonic's the embodiment of chaos. Fate automatically bends to him, or whatever.
Wiz: Except, Wally has broken fate a few times himself, the best example being when he ran to the end of reality and forced the concept of death itself to die.
Boomstick: Ugh, because Speed Force.
Popup: Super Sonic and Hyper Knuckles once destroyed a Zone, and Naugus merged the Void and Zone of Silence together. However, these Zones were shown and described as small pocket dimensions, not complete universes.
Wiz: Simply put, Sonic's hypothesized nature as an anomaly in reality just wasn't enough protection against someone who could also break the rules of reality.
(We cut to Wiz and Boomstick)
Boomstick: And remember, when Wally raced Barry, their speed almost tore apart the multiverse.
Wiz: Both these characters understandably seem overpowered to an extreme fault, but it's important to remember that in their respective worlds, the story comes first. Sonic was impressive, improbable, inexplainable, but Wally had the power, the counters, and the speed he needed to pull ahead in this absolutely mind-bending battle.
(Boomstick begins to convulse)
Wiz: Oh, the drink is kicking in!
(Boomstick glows and vanishes in a flash with a flickering scream, soon reappearing a second later, with a white aura, glowing eyes, and partially transparent)
Boomstick: Wiz, I ran to Jupiter! I'm a god! A speed god!
(Wiz takes out a pencil and notepad)
Wiz: Incredible! Tell me, what cosmic insight have you learned?
Boomstick: Just one thing: While Sonic didn't know it, the writing was on the Wall-y.
Wiz: The winner is the Flash.
The track for this fight is "Way Past Flash" by Brandon Yates. It is a fast-paced rock and techno track reflecting both combatants' speedy and chaotic natures. It also features a remix of the Green Hill Zone theme from the original Sonic the Hedgehog, "Live and Learn" from Sonic Adventure 2, the Justice League Unlimited intro, and "Fastest Thing Alive" from the Sonic the Hedgehog TV series.
The track's title is a reference to one of Sonic's catchphrases in the Sonic the Hedgehog TV series ("Way past cool!"), with "cool" being replaced with the name of the mantle that Wally upholds.
The track cover shows the Flash Logo surrounded by the hoops and stars of Ultra Sonic. Behind it is red lightning and surrounding it are a bunch of rings being launched, with speed lines in the background to reference both combatant's insanely fast speeds.
- The connections between Wally West and Archie Sonic are that they both are speedsters that originate from comic books, they have the same name and exceed the speed of the iconic speedsters (The Flash and Sonic (their namesakes), respectively), as well as breaking the laws of time and space itself, are connected to a mysterious extra-dimensional force (the Speed Force and the Chaos Force, respectively), and are regarded as two of the most powerful speedsters in fiction. They also both play roles in their respective teams (the Teen Titans and the Freedom Fighters).

- The ending quote used for Sonic's analysis is the same one used for his analysis back in Mario VS Sonic (2011).
- The Sanic Hegehog meme could be seen briefly as one of the many alternate Sonics that Flash struck with his finisher.
- This makes it the second episode to have a reference to Sanic, after Hulk VS Doomsday.
- At the end of the fight, the "It's SpeedForce. I ain't gotta explain shit" meme could be seen censored out, with symbols replacing the "shit" at the end.
