    Who would win: Buzz Off vs Clawful

    Who would win: Buzz Off vs Clawful

    Here's another "who would win" scenario.

    This time, it's between the bee-like Buzz Off and the lobster (or crab?) like Clawful.

    Buzz Off is fast, and obviously, can fly.

    Clawful is bulky, and has a grip that you can't escape from.

    (Remember, this is a combat scenario, not which character you like best! )

    I'll go w/ Buzz-Off. Clawful wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    Clawful would win. Speed would only get you so far because once Clawful got a hold of Buzz-off he's done. I do not think Buzz-off has the power to take Clawful down for the count. Clawful can shred steel with his claws. Clawful not being smart does not matter because he is ruthless. I also am looking at these battles as a fight to the death and not as a cartoon where the good guy allways wins and they get the heck beat out of them and are fine a minute later.

    Clawful would win. Once he cuts Buzz-Off's wings, our little bug fellow would stand no chance against the might of Clawful.

    (Even though I set this poll), I'm really split down the middle on this one. Buzz Off is quite smart, definitely smarter than Clawful (but then again, who isn't ) and is a quick flyer, so could out-maneuver Clawful. That would give him the edge, but then he'd have to see it through - although fast, Buzzy isn't the strongest in terms of being a "warrior".
    Once Clawful got hold of Buzz Off, there would be no escaping. He would crush poor Buzz Off. (But that's if he got hold of him!)

    I think this one would be very much a tie. But if Buzz Off was careless enough to get too close, then Clawful would get the upper hand (pun?).

    Being very imaginative imagine this: We all agree that Clawful is dumber but stronger and Buzz Off but, Buzzy is faster, smarter and he can fly that is much better than Clawful´s powerful grab.
    Buzz Off can attack the Clawful from the air, for example with rocks, stun him and then chop Clawful´s head with his axe. If Buuz Off keeps himself in the air Clawful has no chance.

    Doesn't this depend on which version of Clawful we are thinking of. Cause Filmation's Clawful was pretty smart unlike the MYP version.
    Also in the mini-comics he was depicted as one of the best.

    Very good point - just like in the previous battle scenario, Ram Man vs. Tri Klops (http://www.he-man.org/forums/boards/....php?t=144759), it very much depended which "version" of Tri Klops was being used (ie. could he shoot lazers from his eyes, etc.).

    As it's an out-and-out 'to the death' battle, something which would never really happen in MOTU anyway, just take it that it's what you consider to be the "best version" of each character in the scenario. ("Scenario"... I like that word. I really must use it more often!)

    (Also, I personally consider that in the Filmation version, Clawful is more average compitent than out-and-out smart, but that's just down to personal opinion! ).

    Claw-ful. I always felt Buzz-off was pretty weak. Annoying voice, not all that interesting. So yeah.

    I think Buzz Off...

    He's quite intelligent
    His weapon is powerful - and could probably pierce Clawful's shell after a while
    He can stay in the air for a LONG time and just shoot Clawful with his weapon
    He held his own against those Giants in the MYP series..

    I have to go with Clawful on this because I've always liked him in the clash of arms mini comic. You never got the feeling he was an idiot in the comic. He was extremly powerful and he beat the hell out of fisto! He seemed kinda smart in the vintage toon and even though he was powerful in the myp toon, they made him out to be an idiot. Buzz-Off is a cool heroic master, but he's basicly just a spy with no real power.....or could I be wrong?

    Clawful is the stronger and should win, but Eternia being Eternia, evil just can't ever win, so Buzz Off would be the victor in that fight...
    He who dies with the most MOTUC wins!

    Eternia being Eternia, He-Man would have to intervene, run around a lake to create a vacuum and suck out the water, cut a whole in the ground to trap a storm down it, make glass out of sand and turn into a tornado. Being Eternia.

    (The more I think about it, Filmation lore wasn't all great)

    Technically, shouldn't he be lizard-like? In Orko's Fun Facts for Fraidy Cat, it mentions that by coincidence or not (no one knows), the four Evil Warriors Skeletor uses in that show are all reptilian---Mer-Man, Kobra Khan, Whiplash, and Clawful.

    Personally I think he kind of resembles a komodo dragon, lol.

    Filmation's version in fact looks like a lizard which made alot of fans confused at the time myself included.
    Even in the spanish translation for Clawful they call him " Lagartenazas " which means Lizardclaws. I guess most people saw his cartoon version as a lizard instead of a crab or lobster.

    In the episode " The Witch and the Warrior" he is able to crawl inside the sand and tolerate the heat from that specific region of Eternia and was even able to ambush He-Man, like a desert lizard.

    You're quite right about the Filmation version. I was thinking more of the figure version, where his pinchers seemed to be more crab / lobster influenced. What, MOTU lore inconsitant?? Never!!

    I would say Clawful, he quite strong and could provide He-Man a challenge (The Witch and the Warrior).

    Ah, but the scenario is between Clawful and Buzz Off. ...Except if Clawful couldn't beat He-Man, I guess Buzz Off hasn't got much chance. Oh well, anyway...

    If Filmation Buzz-Off fights against Filmation Clawfull Buzz Off definitely loses.
    This classic cartoon version was pretty lame, he looked weak.

    But If MYP Buzz-Off fights against MYP Clawful he might have a chance against him since his new version is stronger and smarter.

    These characters have changed dramatically so it's hard to decide which version collides.

    It would be a good battle but I'm thinking Clawful. He was quite deadly in the Filmation cartoon, surprisingly. Buzz-Off was portrayed as a much better fighter in the new cartoon and Clawful was dumbed down to the intelligence of a rock (Which, got old...how can all of Skeletor's cronies be so dumb?..) But that didn't seem what the Four Horsemen had in mind...

    If you just look at the characters...I think the Four Horsemen created a Clawful who was a true threat and could take Buzz-Off to the mat!
