    Who would win? Mugen of Samurai Champloo, or Spike of Cowboy bebop?

    If I had to pick, I'd say they would both end up killing each other.

    Yeah, or a draw at the worst. With neither of them being able

    to kill each other or a decisive victor being chosen.

    Don't forget, Spike has guns, and Mugen has a sword. Not that matters, both of them are cool.

    Though we must remember that the sword using Vicious gave Spike a hell of a fight, and Jin (who seems to be about Mugen's equal) did pretty good against the guy from "Misguided Miscreants" who used a gun.

    Mugen would win no matter what. Spike's a good fighter, to be sure, but his abilities are still realistic. Mugen, on the other hand, has taken out an entire army of well trained ninjas with no weapon at all. Plus, have you ever seen Spike bring down a tree with a baseball?

    Spike can call in an air-strike from the Bebop.

    And Mugen can survive explosions. What's your point?

    Okay, here's the bottom line: Mugen can survive anything, on the other hand, Spike dies. So Mugen automatically wins.

    He's been blown up twice, but hasn't died yet.

    Correct, Mugen dying simply defies the laws of nature in every way imaginable. You could stab him ten times, throw him into a vat of acid, then dump that acid into a pit of razors, and he would still survive. Trust me.

    Mugen's name does mean eternal.

    Spike only dies because he had nothing left to live for. He LET Vicious kill him. He had a hole blown right through him and survived. By that logic, if Mugen can't die, neither can Spike if he doesn't want to.

    That may be, but we've never seen Spike live through anything like what Mugen's lived through.

    I don't know about that. Yes, Mugen's been involved in a couple of explosions, but he didn't get hurt real bad by them. I think he got off the ship just in the nick of time. He was close enough to the explosion to be knocked out by it, but not close enough to really be killed by it (this is just my speculation, since they never actually show). And he's been cut up real bad, but he's never had huge holes the size of his stomach put through him.

    But what about the last episode? He was right at the center of not one explosion, but three. And that was after he had been cut several times, and had a cannonball go right through his stomach. Then he got up and fought again.

    All right, well I'd say they're equally matched. They can both take a hell of a beating.
