We haven’t seen a good, old fashioned Death Battle in a while here on EventHubs. These animated shorts usually pit two similar characters from different franchises and series against each other in a fast-paced fight to the death.
One of our staffers here recently stumbled onto a Death Battle X — the more succinct version that does away with all of the analysis and explanation — that presents the perfect match up: Mortal Kombat’s Mileena vs. Street Fighter’s Juri. Somehow, none of us recall ever seeing it.
This particular match up was released back in 2018, so some of you may already know the result. If you do, please don’t spoil it for those of use who are witnessing it for the first time.
Mileena and Juri are the best bad girls from their respective fighting games. Both are sinister and sassy, and they have a lust for blood.
The set up for this battle is a simple one that begins with Mileena taking down her sister Kitana. Juri witnesses the defeat of the empress, then jumps in to try her luck against the toothy savage herself.
We won’t tell you who wins this one, but Mileena’s sai and Juri’s powerful kicks make for an excellent battle. Let us know who you got as the winner, then check out the full match up below.
