Ein vs. Scooby-Doo

August 12, 2013 at 11:56 am (Fictional Character Battles) (, , , )

It’s a battle of fictional puppies!

One travels the country by van, solving crimes with a bunch of hippies.

Seriously, who grabs a Great Dane, a van and their friends and starts solving crimes?

One traverses the solar system in a spaceship, tracking criminals with a bunch of bounty hunters.

I always thought Spike was taller.

Which dog is more awesome? You’re about to find out.

Physicality. Scooby-Doo is a cartoon Great Dane. Ein is a cartoon Welsh Corgi. Have you ever seen a Welsh Corgi? They’ve got these stubby little legs and these ears that stick up and soooo cute. Winner? Ein.

Aww! (To the nth degree)

Aww! (To the nth degree)

Smarter? Scooby-Doo can talk a bit, although his enunciation suffers due to his lack of lips. Ein can’t talk, but he knows more about computers than you do. Especially if you’re my mom. Winner? Ein.

He can even fly a spaceship.

Has been to Mars? Ein’s been to Mars. Not Scooby, though. Winner? Ein.

"I went to Mars and all I got was this lousy dog dish."

“I went to Mars and all I got was this lousy dog dish.”

Visits a lot of abandoned theme parks? Only once in Cowboy Bebop does anybody go visit an abandoned theme park, and nobody thinks to bring Ein with them when they do. Probably because of the brutal assassin lying in wait, but still. On the other hand, Scooby-Doo and the gang practically live in abandoned theme parks. Abandoned theme parks are their bread and butter. Winner? Scooby-Doo.

Gets to hang out with Spike Spiegel? I want to hang out with Spike Spiegel. Winner? Ein.

... well, maybe if he lays off the smoking.

… well, maybe if he lays off the smoking.

Eats on a regular basis? Once, Ein got to eat a hallucinogenic mushroom. Otherwise, he’s about as hungry as the rest of the Bebop crew. Scooby gets Scooby snacks and also whatever else he and Shaggy can fit in their craws. Winner? Scooby.

"Ruh Roh!"

“If they didn’t keep me well-fed, I’d probably eat Velma first.”

Solves more crimes? Scooby-Doo and the gang often solve crimes. It’s, like, their thing. Ein and the crew of the Bebop don’t really solve crimes. They just try to capture criminals for the bounties on their heads, and they’re not really all that good at that. Winner? Scooby-Doo.

Better theme song? The Scooby-Doo theme is very catchy and wonderful, but it’s no Tank!, am I right?

Overall winner? Ein, the second-best character in Cowboy Bebop.
