    It's the fact that every fight that's outright fun to watch like "Itachi vs. A Rock" ends in the rock winning. We vote for the opposite of who we know would win. It's getting predictable.

    Anyone else feeling this?

    Yeah, it would be funnier to let Itachi use his full arsenal to barely defeat the rock :sag

    Gonna follow your advice.

    I've been trying to make good matches but I can't seem to make anything as epic as Rild's "crooks who robbed Darkseid" vs "cops who arrested Thanos" thread.

    I'm in agreement with Goku.

    It's one of the reasons that I rarely post in here. I can pretty much guarantee that people are going to vote for the underdog.

    The way to do it is put two absurdly silly things together that are similar that isn't isn't group specific jokes(Can(n)on, Jplaya characters) and put em together

    You just need to use Joke Battledome logic.

    In the normal BDome, Itachi clearly takes it. The rock has no way to hurt Itachi and that one black fire attack can clearly melt it. He wins.

    In the Joke BDome, you are right. People do automatically vote for the one that they know shouldn't win. But if you want to make a case for Itachi, you should use Joke BDome logic. Have Itachi use joke powers, like Blindness and Running Away.

    Here's why Itachi wins Itachi v. A rock: Itachi can kill off the rock's clan. Since the rock will always lack hatred, it will never be able to kill Itachi.
