2.7 megajoules vs. 4.6. A very clear cut advantage for Murdoc in that regard, though I don’t think that’s the deciding factor in this fight in the slightest
Now given that speed is unequalized, and Murdoc has a higher reaction speed some of Goku’s ranged attacks, if not a good chunk of them, are going to be dodged. He’ll likely be able to land some hits in, though, but odds are most ranged attacks will be dodged. If he dodged too much, Goku may just decide to go hand to hand, which would be a bit more difficult to determine.
Goku has the lifting strength advantage but that ain’t gonna help him much because I don’t see Goku trying to pin down or really throw Murdoc unless he’s really desperate, and even then reaction times make it hard for grabbing.
Striking strength never matters so Murdoc wins that. Murdoc also takes durability considering the car feat is honestly pretty casual. They sure weren’t gruesomely damaged by it, though the same can be said about Goku, generally Murdoc will tank more damage than Goku can.
Intelligence range and stamina. While two go to goku, intelligence is a bit more iffy as Murdoc has more overall intelligence and can be pretty crafty to my knowledge.
Experience altogether is actually pretty alright, and it just depends on how willing Goku is to play a ranged game, but Murdoc’s greater reaction speed sort of stop range from being as useful as it could, and because of that it serves as less of a problem.
Overall, Murdoc has better reaction time, AP and Durability, as well as striking strength and intelligence being iffy.
Son Goku has his intelligence in fighting and likely skill, but that weakness is glaring if he hasn’t gotten over it, and since his range is going to be fairly negated, he’s going to probably have to go close range, where Murdoc’s superior AP and dura are problems for him.
Currently leaning to Murdoc buuuut maybe my mind can be changed.
He does know how to fight though, and that’s important. He was a part of a gang of criminals, and generally speaking Murdoc just has more of an advantage in what matters like reaction speed, and he’s stronger than goku and more durable.
It' quite extreme to imply every single one of murdock's attacks on the other gorillaz members are car crash level.
Like in the DoYaThing music video murdoc throws a shoe at 2D and hurts him, if that attack would've been car crash level, the shoe would've broke the floor or something lmao.
Thus it falls under occam's razor, as you need extraordinary evidence to make extraordinary claims, as my claim is far more consistent than yours, it's far better and more consistent to believe he's not car crash level.
Except they survived the car explosion very casually, and Murdoc can hurt people who survived that car explosion. No matter what his attacks are on that level of hurting them, if not more. His attack scales to his durability because he can hurt people who are just as durable as him.
But it is though. If he could make these incredible explosions how was he stuck in jail recently? How did 2d get into a coma immediately after getting struck by murdoc's car? And how tf did the cameraman's camera not break in the mtv video when noodle threw a cd at it, and threw another object (clearly no harder as it wasn't implied) at murdoc, who got hurt by it.
It's EXTREMELY inconsistent is what I'm saying. I don't care about minor ones.
