I don't normally keep up with the Death Battle series, often due to a lack of interest in a majority of their match-ups or because of the inaccuracies in the capabilities and portrayals of the characters involved.

However, this match-up is one of the few exceptions I have made due to featuring characters I both know and enjoy. Plus, it's the first portrayal of a Naruto and Avatar character in the Death Battle series, the former being relevant to this particular forum.

Anyway, I thought that this would be a fun topic to discuss, preferably in a civilized manner. For those who need information on our two combatants, I have provided links to their respective Wikia pages. Have fun and enjoy!

Naruto characters require chakra and their abilities have fairly clear limitations. Avatar characters have no such weaknesses, they can continue to bend their element until they are no longer able to move.

That being said, Gaara could use his sand to fly, and while Toph has shown both the ability to detect earth in the air AND has incredibly hearing, she has had difficulty bending sand. On the other hand, she's the strongest earth bender ever and she can metalbend on top of that.

Gaara can also turn earth into sand. Razz

In all honesty, I'm looking forward to this one. One of the few times where I actually think this will be enjoyable to watch (not really a fan of Death Battle normally).

I apologize for never updating this thread or continue the discussion, but I figured I'd at least make up for that now to at least finish what I started.

The Death Battle video was posted on Feb 7, 2015 and you can watch it on YouTube here on Screw Attack's official channel. You can also view the teaser video as well.

Before you watch the main event, it's worth taking into account the abilities of our two fighters as understood by the people at Death Battle. The following videos acted as information for each, explaining a bit of their history as well as demonstrating their capabilities through examples.

Gaara armors up for DEATH BATTLE!

Toph steps into DEATH BATTLE!

Personally, I disagree with the outcome of the Death Battle as I feel elements for each character were over-emphasized for the sake of dramatics (i.e. Gaara being slow). However, it's a show to be entertaining, so it's to be expected, especially if one is familiar with Death Battle. Regardless, it's one of the more interesting match-ups I've seen from them, so they get credit for that.
