I'd also like to call attention to the fact that Yang was driven through 3 or 4 of those pillars in rapid succession, so the initial force exerted on her was probably much more than a mere 1400 tons
@jeepeh: And yes I was being rather generous. The head was the size of a car if you looked at it. Not at all to be compared it to pacific rim mechs whose foot was the size of many. 150 kph is the fastest the leviathan could have gone if you saw the scene. I would even go as far as saying it was going 60 kph only. I didnt want people saying my calcs were too low.
@ghetsiscmcvne: Yang had been fighting Grimm all night, had not eaten anything, and was facing an agile opponent with a fighting style involving her feet. Am I to assume Yang is gonna be tired and malnourished for this fight by a Hulk using his feet like Chun Lee? If so....
I’d pay to see that.
Yang doesn't have better durability than Hulk (debatably). She doesn't have better strength than The Hulk. But she does have a much faster speed off of scaling from others of her tier and below her tier. She does have superior skill if you're thinking reasonably. But what really puts her over the Hulk is her semblance. It's that semblance that's used as a trump card and for good reason. She can take on nearly anyone with few exceptions (emphasis on these two). Her only bad showing are against three people who are severely higher on the tier list than her at different times.
Neo Vs. Yang does need context, but even without it, it's very safe to assume she can beat Yang with relative ease. Not meaning Hulk can crush her in the same manor because Bruce Banner and Neopolitan are two very different opponents. Mercury Vs. Yang is the most controversial match debated in Yang's history. It was part of the plan to lose to Yang because if he didn't lose his aura than he couldn't of taken the blow to the leg. If you think the plan was to beat Yang and then attack her after, that's just pure head-canon. Mercury had to lose to Yang and was not giving his all at any point in the fight. Adam "Vs." Yang was her getting fodderized by someone who wasn't even student age. Adam is best put in the Neo category if not a few shades better than her. Adam used his semblance against Yang's and one because he's just a superior fighter in every regard.
Hulk exerting the force to flip a leviathan was impressive and probably was 1000 tons of force of pressure. The problem is that Yang can take 14 of those and more. And if the Hulk is really trying to kill her with full anger, she can survive that and some then give back to him 2x harder. If Hulk can fight Thor as an equal then fight someone who at base, is strong enough to get up after a barrage of punches, if he could land them since she is faster than him and would end up more powerful as the fight progresses, I'd say Yang has a solid 7/10 chance at taking on the MCU Hulk.
Feats for Yang plz? Because to my (incredibly limited) knowledge on RWBY, two of the top tiers of the verse clashing together can shake a building, which is far below hulk's pay grade.
In terms of strength, hulk indirectly one shot a satellite with a backhand, created a small earthquake, one shot a Leviathan, made the ground crack so fast Abomination couldn't react, dented silicon carbide vibranium, kept Fenris' mouth open, and moved Prime Surtur hundreds of meters, the same surtur who could easily tank Mjolnior in his weakened state.
As far as durability goes, Hulk tanked a skyscraper falling on top of him, Mjolnior, Thor's super fist, and was thrown by Surtur.
Hulk has moved so fast he blitzed Blonsky, who could effortlessly turn around and catch an RPG.
Hulk has healed from death in the form of Banner jumping onto the bifrost bridge.
@drpepperman: That sounds exaggerated honestly. I almost thought a full scale earthquake and an actual satellite. I still think his Leviathan feat is still his best. Also its more like surtur moved on his own rather than hulk moving him, like how a fly gets on your eye. He really couldn't hurt him afterwards.
Hulk's base state is superior to Yang's, but Yang's semblance will fix that quickly.
But strength isn't enough.
Yang's rounds won't hurt hulk for obvious reasons.
There's only one big question that decides the fight.
Can Yang KO Thor?
As we've seen, only beings of equal or greater strength has any chance beating the Hulk. If she pulls a HulkBuster and lands one good blow to the head while he's distracted, she could Possibly KO Him. However, since Thor didn't KO Him with the headshot, i doubt Yang can either.
So her best chance is to pull a nonstop Onslaught
Hmmm, let’s see.
Yang punch blasts an Avion Colossus sized Nevermore multiple times directly into it’s throat, which should be a vulnerable area, failing to kill it. Meanwhile Hulk smashes the armored, closed mouth of a Phalanx Colossus sized Chitari Leviathan and kills it with one punch
The size difference between giant monsters looks about like this:
Hulk takes this. Yang couldn’t even kill the Nevermore using Ember Celica while her sister Ruby managed to defy gravity and decapitate it with an edged weapon.
Hulk clobbers Yang
Seriously Yangs problem is the problem the whole show has. They’re too keen on the whole Batman/Daredevil close quarters combat thing. It looks awesome, but it’s street level fare. Then you have weapons that selectively just cause knockback instead of killing foes outright, because guns tend to be street leveler’s weakness.
That leaves us with the ridiculous situation where guys like Roman Torchwick give the hunters and huntresses a harder time than the Grimm themselves. So that damns Yang to get her butt kicked by street levelers while she SHOULD be able to kill dinosaur sized Grimm like Ruby does.
Honestly, if we ignore feats like Hulk's punch on the avengers on the Levianthen(which is a high end feat for Hulk) Yang could win. She is far faster,more skilled, and shouldn't be one shotted. She should be able to hurt him (assuming she couldn't already) due to her semblance.
What about Hulks’s first fight with Thor, where the jet fighter unloads miniguns right into his back and he barely feels it as an annoyance. Yang has the Aura and semblance. Where’s her scenes of taking bullets and just getting pissed off? I’m starting to think Yang vs Luke Cage , Punisher or even Jessica Jones (she’s about as inconsistent as Yang) would be a better matchup.
@kefka: they seem to be far below Yang's paygrade.
And although Yang's durability doesn't seem to work like Hulk's it has it's benefits.
For starters, her Defense is like a force field. Her Aura defends her body from any damage or injuries. There are ways around aura as we've seen, some characters like Cinder and Adam specialize against Aura, while Jaune can transfer and steal aura from others.
Her Aura has shown to be the second toughest in the franchise, since Yang was able to be punched into the sky and not return until several minutes later, with no injury or signs of Aura depletion.
On that same note, Yang has been rammed through 3-4 concrete pillars, before being punched through one more, yet her Aura was not used up.
Considering the Pillars were around 3 feet thick, that's a minimum of 12 feet of concrete she was punched through, without the depletion of Aura.
So by taking the impact that was strong enough to blast her through the roof and propel her skyward charged her durability enough that she didn’t get hurt from free fall? Then how does she get knocked out from a mere toss up into the ceiling of the train? Being tired is a poor excuse since she fought only “low level Grimm” and went on to pulverize the cannon fodder White Fang with a wink and a smile.
As for the MCU street levelers, Luke Cage rips car doors from their hinges, tanked a direct hit from a rocket launcher, then supported the rubble that he was buried under and unlike Yang but like the Hiulk is shown to actually be bulletproof.
Punisher has the opposite going for him. He’s loaded with guns and is able to plow through his fair share of cannon fodder, w/out aura backing him up. Yang doesn’t appear to be bulletproof either. So I wonder how many shots it would take Punisher to cut through her aura? Again, Yang is bogged down by getting beaten up by street levelers with only a few gimmicks on their side while her sister and the rest of team RWBY have taken out dinosaur sized threats. Best we get from Yang might be that fully armored mecha she destroyed by herself at the fall of Beacon.
@drpepperman: well, like i said, her tanking feats are limited, but she was able to withstand being plowed through nearly 12 feet of concrete with no injury or major damage to her aura. This feat was stated by Screwattack to be 1400 tons of force. And I know, screwattack is usually unreliable, but Monty Oum, the creator of RWBY, Helped create the death battle that included yang, so it's pretty solid.
However, the main advantage Yang has is Speed and Skill. Hulk may have two years of experience in Sakaar, But Yang has been fighting and training since she was a member of signal Academy before Beacon Academy and was trained by both Qrow and Taiyang in combat skill, she must have the bare minimum of 3 years of combat training/experience.
Not only that, but Yang is a far faster than Hulk and has shown capable of dancing around Hulk with minor issue, as we've seen in her fight against the Ursa Major.
Strength and durability could be argued, but speed and skill cannot.
@sladerulez: thanks for the feats man.
Based off that, Hulk shouldn't have much trouble putting her down. Thor, who could casually dent Iron Man's armor with his fingers, needed both hands to block a single punch from the hulk. Hulk also has consistent supersonic feats.
@drpepperman: i don't recall a single supersonic feat, but most RWBY Characters are placed at low hypersonic in terms of speed.
She was also able to have an even fight with Mercury, who can percieve FTE characters like Ruby. Considering one must travel from point A to Point B in under 13 milliseconds, they must be able to percieve items at a far faster level.
@drpepperman: chitauri lasers are completely visible and have no official speed feats that suggest they are Bullet level speed.
And Thor is faster than hulk. He has constantly side stepped and evaded his punches. The only times he gets hit is when he tries to reason with Hulk or when he grapples the hulk.
Yang is feasibly faster since she has faced against faster foes that challenge Quicksilver in speed.
@drpepperman: I know about the feat of him deflecting the lasers with his Hammer, but that doesn't matter.
Unlike bullets, which are nearly impossible to see with the naked Eye, you can clearly see the lasers from the Chitauri weapons travelling through the air relatively slowly in comparison to a bullet.
