Naruto vs Sasuke felt more emotionally investing rather than Vegeta bitching about his pride yet again and Goku having to film him because he felt obligated to, there's also the part at the end of N v S when they're exhausted and still going, plus I like seeing the variety of abilities
VOTE2 was more disappointing due to the massive hype and near eternal wait for it to take place. Manga VOTE 2 was abysmal. In hindsight, there was nothing spectacular about VOTE1, now that my emotions towards the series have lessened and i have no "hype glasses" to speak of.
I've never been impressed with Vegeta vs. Goku fights, but I really enjoyed Vegeta's character development through the Buu Saga and everything that led up to it (the fight and the sacrifice).
Naruto vs Sasuke's anime version really redeemed it's manga counterpart. It really surpassed any expectations I had for an anime adaptation, the animation quality, soundtracks, perfect use of flashbacks for once and even filler was done really well. And it managed to revive and capture the emotional investment in the clash a lot better. Ending to both fights was slightly underwhelming, torn between having sasuke conceding and vegeta sucker punching.
Naruto vs Sasuke was far and above better than Goku vs Vegeta. There are a bunch of little details in the anime version which make it much more satisfying to watch (Sasuke going out of his way to repeatedly not allow Naruto to make a shadow clone hand sign during the Taijutsu near the start, for example).
Both fights aren't great, but the studio really went all out with Naruto v Sasuke and it did bring back good memories of all they've been through up to this point, even if the fight itself paled in comparison to the first time they fought. So I pick that.
@just_banter: Also, the building escalation. Neither spoke at first, then used only taijutsu, then amping up gradually. The cuts between their other fights when they were younger.
The Naruto v Sasuke fight is way above the DBZ one, imo
Honestly only way you could say the Goku/Vegeta fight was superior was because of the events that happened afterwards. We see Vegeta isn't really a slave and has been pushed to an awakening.....and in that awakening he realizes he's part of something greater and eventually gave his life for its success. It's nothing more admirable than a man fighting and dying for his own unselfish resolve. On the other hand the fight was rushed, toriyama again took a dump on Vegeta for whatever reason, and 'majin' vegeta was basically pointless.
Vote2 was garbage IMO, both anime and manga left out too much that needed to be seen, Naruto didn't do anything spectacular the entire fight, crazy amounts of WiS, nothing too emotionally investing etc.....however vote 1 was a completely different demon that was quite possibly one of the best turning points in anime/Manga history. Narutos awakening was Easily one of the most memorable in anime history,I'll always remember that cutscene where Sasuke impales Naruto for it only to go to a commercial break thinking we've lost him.....5minutes later Naruto patches a fu*king hole in his body and a vision of a fox shakes the freakin heavens, it blew my mind as a kid.
Nothing is more epic than Goku going gold for the first time though, and if you played the original budokai on ps2 you would know why.
