  • You've seen our you versus series, you've  seen our world famous who would win series,  

  • now we're upping the ante- or jumping the shark  maybe- with our new Battle Royale series, and  

  • we're kicking things off with one hell of a bangToday we're putting up three of the most iconic  

  • horror characters from modern cinema in a death  match where there can only be one winner. Welcome  

  • to the thunderdome, only this time one man and  two monsters enter, and only one can leave alive.

  • Today's matchup is one for the history booksWe've got the legendary dream slasher, Freddy  

  • Kruger, weighing in at 160 pounds and armed  with a glove packed with razor sharp knives.  

  • He can jump through dreams, he can chase you  from your subconscious into the real world,  

  • he's there anytime you close your eyes for a  

  • quick nap- there's nowhere to hide  from the infamous dream stalker.

  • Also entering the Infographics battle arena is  Jason Voorhees, the legendary hack and slasher and  

  • original teen sleepover camp decimator. He weighs  in at over two hundred and fifty pounds, and comes  

  • armed with cleavers, axes, sledgehammers- any and  all matter of implements of bodily destruction.  

  • He hates teenage promiscuity and partying  behavior, so keep this monster off the set  

  • of MTV's My Sweet Sixteen. Or maybe don't, because  MTV and literally everything it does is terrible.

  • Our third challenger is none other than the manthe legend, the time-travelling deadite killing  

  • badass, Ash Williams. There's good, there's  bad, and then there's Ash- the guy with the  

  • gun. Armed with his signature boomstickAsh packs some serious modern firepower,  

  • but it's perhaps his famous chainsaw-hand that  is to be most feared by today's combatants.  

  • It can rip, it can tear, and it can turn deadite,  

  • dream serial killer, or undead hacker  and slasher into mincemeat in seconds.

  • So who would win our battle royaleLet's dive into the combatants and  

  • find out how they each stack against each other!

  • Freddy was originally a child murderer, discovered  by angry townspeople and burned alive. Since his  

  • own murder, Freddy has sought his revenge on the  townspeople who killed him, and accomplished this  

  • by stalking the dreams and nightmares of  their children. Dependent on fear though,  

  • Freddy has had to come up with ingenious ways to  terrorize new generations into empowering him.

  • In the dream world, Freddy is all but  indestructible, with only specially trained  

  • 'dreamwarriors' able to challenge him by using  their psychic powers. In the real world however,  

  • Freddy loses much of his supernatural powerthough remains a formidable foe. Outside of  

  • a dream, Freddy is about as strong  and fast as a professional athlete,  

  • but his body is very resistant to damage. He  can even stretch his limbs and grow taller,  

  • and his body is very resilient to damage but  not invulnerable. He can have limbs hacked  

  • off and even be decapitated, but never truly  die unless he's killed in the dream world.

  • Outside of a dream, Freddy is at his most  vulnerable, placing him at a serious disadvantage  

  • in this fight. Still, he comes armed withglove stuffed with razor-sharp knives and is  

  • very proficient in its use, making him deadly  at close quarters. Freddy's greatest strength  

  • comes from his ability to terrorize dreamsbut if he can't find a way to escape into the  

  • dreams of his opponents in this matchup, Freddy  might not last long in this fight to the death.

  • Next up is Jason, the ultimate teen slasher horror  icon. Freddy may make you scared in your dreams,  

  • but Jason will make you wet yourself in real life.  

  • Weighing in at over 250 pounds, Jason  is a hate-fueled murder machine,  

  • hellbent on taking out his wrath over  the counselors who let him drown to death  

  • on any promiscuous teenagers he comes across...  as well as generally anybody else in his way

  • Jason's body is all but immune to damage, though  he can still have limbs amputated and be destroyed  

  • by fire or explosives. Eventually thoughJason will reconstitute his physical form,  

  • typically at the bottom of Crystal Lakewhere he died originally. Able to lift at  

  • least as much as his own body weight, Jason is  a physical power house and not someone you'd  

  • want to go toe-to-toe with. Typically armed  with a cleaver, a machete, or an axe, Jason  

  • is more than capable of indiscriminate murder  armed with nothing more than his bare hands.

  • Jason has one real weakness, and that's  an aversion to water. The canon is rather  

  • confusing on this point, as Jason has often been  shown emerging from, and even killing in water,  

  • but Freddy vs Jason revealed that the murder  machine actually has a deeply rooted pyschological  

  • fear of water. Perhaps that fear is supplanted  when hunting down defenseless teenagers,  

  • but against a master fear manipulator like  Freddy, and the always clever Ash Williams,  

  • Jason may want to come into  this match wearing floaties.

  • Ash Williams is for all intents and purposesno more or less powerful than the average human.  

  • Weighing in at about 200 pounds, Ash's real  strength comes from his resolve and force of will,  

  • pushing himself past limits that would  break a normal man. When his hand began  

  • to go bad on him after being attacked by  a deadite, Ash took the obvious solution,  

  • and simply hacked it off and then replaced it  with a chainsaw. That takes some serious guts,  

  • and we're willing to be is not a feat most  people would be capable of pulling off.

  • With an inhuman tolerance for pain, Ash is able  to push himself to superhuman feats of endurance,  

  • once swallowing a kettle of boiling water after  having an evil mini-Ash jump into his mouth and  

  • down into his stomach. We're willing to bet  that one hurt on the way out. Ash's chainsaw  

  • hand is also a formidable close quarters weaponand no matter how tough Freddy and Jason may be,  

  • Ash's chainsaw hand will make short work of  either of the two if they stray too close.

  • At range and in close quarters thoughAsh is never without his trusty boomstick.  

  • A double-barreled twelve gauge shotgun, Ash's  boomstick is powerful enough to blow off a  

  • deadite's head, or even cut them in half. Asfirearms expert though, Ash can pick up just about  

  • any weapon and use it to deadly effect. Without  supernatural powers, Ash may seem like the last  

  • choice for victory, but his tools and pure grit  make him a contestant not to be underestimated.

  • We've met our combatants, we've learned their  

  • strengths and weaknesses- who then would  emerge victorious in our battle royale?

  • From the get-go, nobody is at more ofdisadvantage than Freddy, who's going to have  

  • a hell of a time escaping into the dream  world where he can wield his full powers.  

  • Jason is not quite a zombie, but without  the need for sleep Freddy's best bet  

  • will be to somehow incapacitate and knock  out Jason so he can enter Jason's dreams  

  • and dispatch him from there. Considering  Jason's extremely resilient nature,  

  • knocking him unconscious will be no  mean feat for Freddy to pull off.

  • Ash may seem like a better victim, but over the  many decades of his encounters with deadites,  

  • Ash has developed a great resistance to  supernatural horror. Plus, in the midst  

  • of a fight to the death, Ash isn't going to be  looking to take any naps anytime soon. Of course,  

  • Freddy could still knock Ash out of the fight  by simply killing him through ordinary means,  

  • but without the use of his reality-shaping  dream powers in the real world,  

  • that might be a lot harder than it seems for  someone armed with a knife hand facing off against  

  • a time-travelling deadite killing bad ass equipped  with a chainsaw for a hand and a shotgun. As we've  

  • so often mentioned on this channel, you really  don't want to be bringing a knife to a gunfight

  • Ash hates evil, like really hates evilBut in this scenario, teaming up with evil  

  • may be the best path for victory. Jason  is a deadly threat to both combatants,  

  • his supernatural resilience and strength both  make him nearly impervious to damage, and getting  

  • in close enough to use his chainsaw hand may not  be a good idea as it'll put Ash himself in range  

  • of Jason's machete. Freddy's got similar problemswhen he faced off against Jason in Jason's dreams,  

  • Freddy ended up losing both arms to Jason's  machete. Luckily in the dream world Freddy  

  • could simply regrow them instantly, but in the  real world, well machete beats knives every time

  • We're actually starting to feel  bad for Freddy in this fight.

  • The best bet may be for Ash and Freddy to team up  temporarily to take Jason out. Freddy is nothing  

  • if not pragmatic, and would likely even be the  first one to propose such an alliance, figuring  

  • that the human Ash will be easier to finish off  once it's down to just two combatants than Jason  

  • would be. In this case, Freddy's ability to  take large amounts of physical punishment may  

  • be the perfect distraction for Ash to deduceplan to eliminate the immortal murder machine.

  • For his part, Jason is all brawn and no brainsand as long as he has something to kill directly  

  • in front of him, isn't too concerned with  being cautious or watching out for traps.  

  • Even simple holograms of promiscuous teenage  campers are enough to incur his wrath,  

  • so we're not expecting Jason to realize  he's being manipulated into a fatal trap.

  • The question though is what kind of trap is  going to be enough to kill an immortal zombie  

  • like Jason? Well, while his body may be very  resilient to damage, it's not immune to either  

  • fire or explosives, and luckily for him, Ash  just happens to be a lowkey Chemistry genius.  

  • As we saw when he was hurled into the medieval  ages to fight an army of deadites, Ash has a  

  • strong grasp of chemistry and explosives, and  with an urban battle arena at his disposal,  

  • we're confident he'd be able to whip together  a homemade IED or two in little time.

  • But Ash is nothing if not clever, and we'd fully  expect him to lay a trap for Freddy and Jason  

  • that eliminates both at once. Even if not, without  somehow putting Ash to sleep, Freddy simply can't  

  • do much against a chainsaw and shotgun wielding  Ash. While both Jason and Freddy are technically  

  • immortal, if their corrupted souls have no  bodies to return to, the fight is basically  

  • a default win for Ash, and for the purposes  of our battle royale, counts as total victory.

  • Freddy may be able to haunt Ash's dreams  after the fact, but Ash's mind may be a murky,  

  • dangerous place for Freddy to lurk. Plus, like we  said before, Ash has great control over his fear,  

  • and Freddy might not find it so easy  to kill Ash even in the dream world.

  • In the end though, Ash might not need  anyone's help to defeat either opponent.  

  • Jason may not bleed out if full  of lead, but a shotgun blast to  

  • the kneecaps is still going to drop him  like a sack of old potatoes. After that,  

  • follow up blasts to the elbows and other  kneecap is going to completely immobilize Jason,  

  • letting Ash carve him up with his chainsaw hand  and turn Jason into a copy of Monty Python's  

  • Black Knight. The only real danger after that is  Ash straying close enough for Jason to bite him,  

  • but with a hockey mask over his face, Jason's  really just defeating himself at this point.

  • Freddy's going to end up with a boomstick  to the face, and then a body chopped up by  

  • chainsaw and buried deep. While the fight may  play out differently in the dream world, unless  

  • either Jason or Ash gets knocked unconsciousFreddy's simply got no chance in this battle  

  • royale. And neither he or Jason can do much to  stand up to the incredible power of a close-range  

  • blast from a 12 gauge shotgun. It turns out  that guns are incredibly good at their job,  

  • and armed with modern, superior equipment, decades  of experience fighting deadites, and the best  

  • one-liners in film history, Ash is without  a doubt our triumphant battle royale winner.
