    Default Akira Fudo (Devilman) vs Inuyasha (Inuyasha) vs Etrigan (DC Comics)

    It's a bloody battle in brimstone! Which of these three Hellspawned Heroes will come out on top?
    There is no "overkill". There is only "open fire" and "I need to reload.".

    I like to think the 90s was the time when comics hit puberty. They’d grown out of being endearing but hadn’t yet figured out where to channel their emotions to not be utterly whiny cocks. -Beadle

    I don't know a lot about all three of these, but I'm going to put something out there for starters.

    Etrigan takes punches in the face from Superman, and comes back by punching Clark all the way to the moon. How the others doing by comparison?

    If he's not blitzed, then Inu Yasha's best bet is to use his dimension dumping/portal cutting sword to BFR/dice anything that isn't resistant to dimensional shenanigans. Though in the case of his upgraded portal cutting move, that actually worked on a version of Naraku who was able to no-sell the OG version of the dimension-dump/portal cut move, then let him be able to jump straight into the world inside the artifact that gave Naraku that ability... even though it was hiding inside a pocket dimension at the time... after having jumped 500 years into the future first.

    Or if Etrigan and Devilman count as youkai, he might be able to cut their youketsu (the source of power for a Youkai, located in their aura) and oneshot them, though it seems unlikely that they would have the same power mechanics as his own universe.

    Devilman is... a confusing canon to say the least

    Etrigan has, at times, pulled the dimension dump schtick himself by opening portals to other dimensions (not just 'poofing' people there, but actually opening a gate and sending people into that other dimension). He has also cast spells that have sent people (Superman) back in time. I think there's SOME argument at least that he can deal with being dumped into another dimension.

    Are we counting the all-Nagai material ie. Devilman VS Shin Getter/Mazinger Z VS Devilman/Devilman VS Hades?

    I'd only consider Devilman, Devilman vs Hades, and Shin Devilman
    There is no "overkill". There is only "open fire" and "I need to reload.".

    Not really familiar with Devilman. But I can't help but feel Inuyasha is in over his head in this one. Etrigan not only has his demonic powers (being a grandson of Trigon), but his physical prowess has had him go head to head with Supes. With the advantage.

    I don't think Inu Yasha can do the one shot spiritual kill thing. That's a Tensaiga sword attack and it's not currently in his possession. Seshoumaru was trolled for most of the series by carrying around the sword

    Sounds like Inu Yasha should probably just skip trying to dimension/time dump Etrigan and only try to portal cut him and hope for the best.

    That's a different thing related to how Tenseiga being a sword of the afterlife lets it slash souls. I'm talking about the Dragonscale Tessaiga's ability to slash/absorb the youketsu that youkai generate their power from (the one he got after having a really good, IMO, training arc where he had to learn how to perceive youketsus in the first place), which probably isn't going to work in this this situation due to a difference in universal mechanics.
