UNLEASH THE 80s CARTOON VILLAIN IN YOU!!
Well like it or not Megatron is gonna win on a combination of popularity and opinions. However I agree Megatron took over Cybertron, Was a crime lord in that gambling episode, or at least in dialogue…so that might not count…but he did bring Cybertron to earth…yes his weakness is his ego, but what cartoon 80’s villain wasn’t? Ohhhh if only Robot Chicken Skeltor was involved…honestly I was thinking Monstar vs Megatron in the finals would’ve been bad ass….That’s a Japanese esque film right there….triple threat Mumm Ra vs Megatron vs Monstar…..
I still was pulling for Hordak moving forward….most underrated 80’s villain ever….
I, too, like Hordak.
I had Hordak beating Skeletor just like I had Mumm-Ra beating Megatron (although I had Mon-Star beating Mumm-Ra first haha)
Hey quick question/suggestion for the next tournament….will there be another 80’s villian tournament? like Krang vs. Dr. Claw tournament and Flinheart Glomgold vs Reggie from Richie rich? You now like evil Scientist vs Evil Scientist or who was the most crooked evil billionaire? Or Fat Cat vs Duke Igthone? G-d so many….great idea… And will there be a 80’s villain henchmen one, or a 80’s hero tournament? This was a blast….can’t believe it’s already over….this would’ve made a great Injustice-esque video game.
There will be many tournaments in the future but probably a long time until we try to do any other 80s villains matchups though.

Hands down megatron to win. Although in the end his plans might have been stopped by the autobots, he did succeed a lot. And even thou some might not count the movie as being part of the series, he did single handed take out a dozen autobots and landing the kill shot on prime. How many heros did skeletor take down?
Everyone is writing off Skeletor unfairly. He is known to have great magical powers including force fields, levitation, telekenisis etc. Then there is his havoc staff which is a very powerful magical artifact and you mentioned he could use any vehicles if he wanted. Seems like without solid ground rules for the combat situation, this tournment is just popularity contest.
There are ground rules and we have stated them. These were all one on one battles, but since they are villains we did admit that if they cheated they would use their armies etc.
To clear up what Mike is saying – They are all one on one battles and NO armies were to be considered whatsoever. But yea, the ground rules were stated, they are all on level open playing field and its one on one combat. Anytime you put something up for a vote there is going to be SOME popularity aspect but that plays a factor in the early rounds not now. Skeletor and Megatron are equally popular amongst the population I would say.
Here here. See my post. I should have just said, I agree with Lee. :)
Skeletor was just written poorly. My guess is that technology would not last long against his magical powers. Force field deflect megatrons blast. It might be evenly matched.
interesting theory! We’ll have to see when the champion is revealed this Friday.
I couldn’t agree more. Skeletor’s staff ought to be able to deflect any blast from Megatron’s canon. I just don’t see tin head having the upper hand here, but alas, he will win.
Skeletor. Because Starscream is gonna shoot Megatron in the back while they’re fighting.
Very good point LOL
I like this scenario.
This is rigged. Just joking. Still, I figured this was how it would shake down. Megatron is going to win. But, Skelator should win, and here’s why. A canon blast will never defeat magic. That’s why Mumm-Ra should have wiped the floor with Megatron in the earlier round. Do you really think that either Mumm-Ra or Skelator can’t deflect or somehow absorb a blast from a ray, canon, gun, etc. with their magic? Everyone seems to want to argue that Megatron’s canon is the end-all-be-all weapon, and when it goes against magic, it just isn’t. Likewise, Megatron’s size won’t help him either. But I would guess that many voters are picking which opponent they like more, and not thinking about who would actually win in a contest between the two in battle. Don’t get me wrong. I like Megatron…a lot. But at the end of the day he’s just a big robot with a gun. Skeletor has so much more in his favor. GCRN Villains Tournament…epic fail. Megatron gets the win…but he shouldn’t have.
we keep saying!!!!! you and the rest of the world cannot blame the GCRN Staff for the winners… EVERYONE VOTED!!!! whomever outside of our core crew of 10 ppl voted, it’s on them… so technically it’s all the fans faults, not ours!!!!
Yes, it is their fault. And I blame them whole-heartedly for this. In the words of Megatron himself, “Epic fail.” Kidding. :) But I still think Mumm-Ra or Skelator would take down Megatron. Magic can do a helluva lot more than any gun.
I can see Megatron beating Skeletor but my problem was him beating Mumm-Ra in which case I agree with you 100%. I think its a little unfair to call the tournament an epic fail. WE didn’t pick the winners, YOU guys did. And anything this much fun and seeing this much debate is always a win in my book ;)
I’m just having fun with you guys. I just said that because you iterated on the podcast how it was the voters fault. :) So take it easy.
after this though there should be a “who should have died” tournament for characters such as wheelie and jar-jar
I’m not too sure about a who should have died tourney, but I’m sure we can do a reg ep for it on another one of the podcasts.
in that tournament…humanity wins.
