Look, maestro, if you made this, then this work does NOT belong here - it belongs in an art gallery, if not the Louvre or someplace like that. This is fantastic.

To be honest, more people should realize that this is perhaps one of the biggest of mismatches because Lord of The Rings & Harry Potter are "way too different from one-another" because it just feels wrong.

Especially if you realize that Albus Dumbledore is in fact the Ultimate Imitator to Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars for different reasons, yes those two have a lot in common for those different reasons, but if anyone is the true rival to Gandalf, its none other but Elminster Aumar from Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting (as far as I know, Elmninster Aumar is also Gandalf's Ultimate Imitator for different reasons since August of 1987, still remains that way to this day, so what your seeing is a stolen rivalry).

As beautifully done this drawing is... I just.... I can't see this happen on Death Battle back on www.screwattack.com, the research points out that Gandalf will 'obliterate' Albus Dumbledore out-rightly.

If Gandalf is going to fight anyone, it should be Elminster Aumar from Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting, because Elminster Aumar is Gandalf's Ultimate Imitator since 1994 albeit for different reasons, still remains that way even to this very day (need to know who Elminster is, look him up as seen here: forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki…

Then as for Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter, he's the Ultimate Imitator to Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars albeit for different reasons, pitting Albus Dumbledore against Obi-Wan Kenobi is a better match-up then pitting him against Gandalf (I don't mean to offend you in any way but what I'm telling you is true).

I wonder if DEATHBATTLE will take a shot at this...

If this was a legitimate Death Battle, Gandalf as just Gandalf The Gray alone will just 'obliterate' Albus Dumbledore outrightly, and I have the research to prove it as seen below...

1: Gandalf has the Glamdring, which despite the fact it's a one and a half-sword, he can easily wield it with one hand due to it's extreme light-weight, and Gandalf himself is known to be strong enough an break solid wood from trees and solid stone as just Gandalf The Grey alone and as Gandalf The White, he can even kill a troll with his sword (Gandalf as just Gandalf The Grey will easily cripple down Albus Dumbledore in close quarters melee combat alone as Albus Dumbledore hasn't been seen in a legitimate sword fight, even if a prequel for Harry Potter came to being, it won't even matter for that reason).
2: Spells within the Harry Potter canon franchise can bounce off of anything that is non-living such as a sword (Gandalf is known to be at the least, an arrow-timer and has up to hypersonic reactions) as well as a Light Saber and even The Force as seen in Death Battle Episode 15: Luke Skywalker vs Harry Potter (Albus Dumbledore is better off fighting Obi-Wan Kenobi since Albus Dumbledore is Obi-Wan Kenobi's Ultimate Imitator albeit for different reasons, Gandalf will block every spell Albus Dumbledore will throw at him, and Gandalf's Glamdring isn't the only reason why either...).
3: Gandalf has measure of mental/psychic resistance as he will be able to easily resist even Albus Dumbledore's Avada Kedavra, and some psychokinesis.
4: If The Lord of The Rings Middle Earth Online game into account, then Gandalf also has fireworks on hand which will stun a target within a few seconds.
5: Gandalf is capable of counter-spell, if Albus Dumbledore starts casting spells at Gandalf for any reason (especially those that can't be blocked with just Gandalf's sword alone if any), Gandalf will also resort to counter spelling Albus Dumbledore's spells (and Albus Dumbledore isn't known for counter spelling either unless they release a Harry Potter prequel but even then it wouldn't matter, he'll still fall victim to his own spells should Gandalf counter-spell such).
6: Gandalf also has Narya, The Ring of Fire, which grants Gandalf not only fire resistance but also enhances his overall effect ratings with fire magic (and this also includes counter spelling any fire magic
cast against Gandalf, if Albus Dumbledore is ever allowed to cast fire magic against Gandalf, Gandalf will in no doubt turn Albus Dumbledore's own firestorm spell against him, turning Albus Dumbledore into a flaming skeleton and will scream... in the same way a character from Mortal Kombat will scream after having a Fatality being performed on such a character, like Scorpion taking off his mask and setting his victim on fire after the Mortal Kombat Announcer saying "Finish Him!"... soooo yeah).
7: Gandalf can ride for days, fight for days, and battle at peak against the Balrog for weeks without showing signs of getting tired (Albus Dumbledore isn't known for supernatural endurance, he will easily get worn out while Gandalf on the other hand won't even show signs of getting tired).
8: While Albus Dumbledore can block glass shards while fighting Lord Voldemort, the glass shards barely went through his barrier resulting Albus Dumbledore to be blown with glass-dust, Gandalf (as Gandalf The Grey) on the other hand with the Shield of the Istari can block Sauron's barrage of shadow energy and was able hold it off for at least 22 seconds, then held it off again for 16 seconds until Sauron overpowered Gandalf and burned his staff to a crisp, if Albus Dumbledore tried to even block that kind of barrage of shadow energy, he will get owned like snap between two fingers.

On the serious side of things, if Gandalf is going to appear on Death Battle, he in fact should fight against none other but Elminster Aumar from Dungeons & Dragons Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting, and believe it or not, Elminster Aumar is Gandalf's Ultimate Imitator albeit for different reasons since 1994, don't believe me? Look Elminster Aumar up as seen here: forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki…

And if Albus Dumbledore is going to fight anyone on Death Battle, he should fight against Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars, because believe it or not, Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter is Obi-Wan Kenobi's Ultimate Imitator albeit for different reasons, it be a better match-up then pitting Albus Dumbledore against Gandalf (and what I tell you is true).

And the 9th reason I should also mention about once I did more research on the killing curse itself as seen below, I've be interested to hear your thoughts on this as well but here it is.

9: As for the regards of the Avada Kedavra (the killing curse) despite the fact it's "unblockable" as shield charms can't block it, even the Avada Kedavra has it's limits, the Priori Incantatem and physical barriers for example can block Avada Kedavra outright and can be deflected by anything by non-living material. More importantly, if Albus Dumbledore somehow managed to land Avada Kedavra on Gandalf for any reason (very unlikely chance), Gandalf will be able to easily shrug off the effects of the killing curse with sheer willpower and his immortality, and since a Phoenix have semi-protection against Avada Kedavra due to the fact they can take the full blow of the curse and still be reborn from the ashes points out that Gandalf's immortality alone can protect him from Avada Kedavra.

In other words, Albus Dumbledore doesn't really have anything on Gandalf as Albus Dumbledore is better off fighting Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars on Death Battle, in the case of the research for Gandalf vs Elminster Aumar, it points out to one 'very close & very long fight' and were talking about a fight that would very well cut it close to Goku vs Superman in terms of how long the fight will last from just beginning to end as I'll mention the reasons as seen below...

1: Gandalf & Elminster are both over 1,000 some years old albeit for different reasons (Gandalf's human form is over 1,000 some years old, his Malar spirit is much older, Elminster is over 1,000 some years old as well, due to being a Chosen of Mystra as all of the Chosen of Mystra have biological immortality).
2: Gandalf can Ride for days, Fight for days and even fight against the Belrog of Morgoth for a series of weeks without getting tired (save for the fact he died and got resurrected as Gandalf The White at some point afterwords), Elminster on the other hand has no need to eat nor sleep as a Chosen of Mystra, save for the fact Elminster still eats and sleeps because he simply chooses to do so, Elminster can even regrow lost limbs (in 2nd Edition D&D Rules, he has a Constitution score of 25, which is the highest in the D&D 2nd Edition game).
3: Gandalf & Elminster are both capable of sword fighting (Gandalf is known to be an arrow-timer with the Glamdring and has up to Hyper-Sonic Reactions, Elminster on the other hand didn't start life as a wizard believe it or not, because he actually first started out as a brigand and a thief at the ripe age of twelve... no joke).
4: One of Gandalf's most powerful foes he killed was The Belrog of Morgoth while one of Elminster's most powerful foes he fought and disposed of was The Avatar of Bane (Gandalf eventually finished off the Belrog of Morgoth by a series of lightning strikes while Elminster on the other hand disposed The Avatar of Bane as they did battle in his tower, as both were caught up in the spell that Elminster had called upon to dispose of The Avatar of Bane himself. While thought to have been destroyed, Elminster later reappeared it became apparent that he had merely been transported to another plane of existence for a time).
5: Gandalf & Elminster are also known to ride horses (save for the fact that Elminster is a poor horseman while Gandalf is known for riding Shadowfax in battle).
6: Gandalf & Elminster are known to counter spell capabilities, as both of them will embark on a counter spell fiesta for quite awhile in fact (just imagine how much destruction they will cause while doing this).
7: Gandalf & Elminster smoke from their pipes for if they meet in a legitimate Death Battle, a smoke rings fight will more then likely be the first thing to take place before the fight itself even begins (in a What If-Scenaro that doesn't involve Death Battle, Gandalf & Elminster will be the best of friends and will actually smoke their pipes while there's happy music from the 1970s playing in the background...... for as long as they want to while looking all big-eyed with blood vessels even showing on their eyes while both of them are looking all big-eyed smoking their pipes together... woot woot woot)
8: The research alone points out that Gandalf vs Elminster will not only be a very close fight but also a very long one, it'll very well cut it close to Goku vs Superman in terms of how long the fight itself will last and mainly due to reason number 2 as mentioned above (the moment when Gandalf & Elminster embark on a sword fight, Torrian will likely state: Ohhh man, $&!# just got real yoo...)

To simply put after looking at all those ideas of Gandalf vs Albus Dumbledore and mentioning on the reasons on why Gandalf should fight Elminster Aumar instead, it alone points out that more people need to know about Elminster Aumar and his ultimate rivalry with Gandalf in addition to the fact that Elminster Aumar is the Ultimate Imitator to Gandalf since 1994, and it also feels like Elminster's rivalry with Gandalf is being unwittingly stolen for the most ill-fated reasons imaginable.

If Death Battle ever did Gandalf vs Elminster Aumar will point out like Peter Jaskson should seriously consider the idea of making D&D Forgotten Realm movies such as The Dark Elf Trilogy & The Elminster Series.

So there you have it, two separate Death Battle Ideas already in mind as the ones I've already mentioned about... Gandalf vs Elminster Aumar as well as Albus Dumbledore vs Obi-Wan Kenobi.

There any doubt? For at lease one simple reason - Dumbledore, powerful as he was, still share the same weakness literally ALL Harry Potter universe characters have: They relies on their wands too much - even Voldemort. Gandalf is balanced attack style(close-quarters/melee weaponry as well as ranged), but Dumbledore is pure ranged, and if he gets disarmed he's basically a non-combatant. It's not like he was a blademaster or knows about the Force of sorts. Imagine if Gandalf gets close and whams Dumbledore with his staff and disarms him with sword... For this reason alone should add Gandalf a 90% winning chance. Ha, ha.

WatchMojo.comon youtube actually compared the two and who would win in a fight^^
www.youtube.com/watch?v=735R85…
Who do i think would win? i think Dubledoor would have the upper hand, simply because he's got a more spells to use and dosnt have to concentrate as much to use them, when Gandalf has to focus to use his spells. it's a close call, but Dombledoor would be the last wizard standing.
anyway, fantastic picture:D
