    Outlaw star is my favorite anime, but Cowboy Bebop is an absolute classic. It's just not a fair matchup for Gene since his anime is lesser-known, but Gene Starwind is a super dope character and a total badass. He gets my vote, but Spike can't lose a popularity contest here. There aren't many matchups that would beat Spike when comparing him with similar characters. Gene is my guy though. Can't vote any other way. Gene deserves more respect.

    Spike wins hand to hand combat but the caster gun is the ultimate trump card

    Not a bad idea, although I do think having Spike fight Nicholas D. Wolfwood (from _Trigun_ ) instead would be a lot closer.

    Gene needed a whole crew for shimi and only lived because shimi "accidently" gave him a faulty gun... Lol i love both shows and watch them all the time but Spike takes this one easy.

    You've never seen outlaw star?! Twilight Sazuka is the greatest, and the way Gene deals with her is perfect. Wit's and charm are where Gene does his best work.

    Tao magic and ley lines can counteract the caster which I believe spike learns or knows about in some episodes. Caster shells are also ancient relics in limited supply and cost a lot. The special shells have to be made by priests on the hot spring planet and cost life force to use because not enough Mana exist for such high level spells. Spike is also capable of finding his own caster gun and getting his ship modified. Gene wins though he gets the girl and gives up the galatic ley line to continue someone else's journey.

    Also the Xgp was built to survive the trip to the galactic ley line it survived under water battle against giant monsters, road on a space storm wave, and other feats. It also achieves warp without gates unlike cowboy Bebop.

    I thought the Castor Gun Gene used drew out the life-force of its user. Remember the old man comparing it to a...um...amount of times you can...um...climax...until it kills you? So...weakness in a battle? Maybe...

    Spike only wins in hand to hand combat...MAYBE in a gun fight, but that would depend on a lot of different factors. The Outlaw Star takes the Swordfish unless you consider that in a death battle, Gene would have to pilot it without Melfina or the rest of the crew 🤔

Which in if they can get past James Hawkens they would have to go against TWO hyper advanced A.I. one of which is the key to unlock a reality warping level power

    Spike isn’t actually that strong. Spike is brought up and lives in low gravity environments. When he goes to normal gravity planets, like when he went to Earth, he is significantly slower and weaker, so much so he had his ass handed to him by someone living there who shrugged off all of Spike’s attacks.

    @Jermand Cole Senketsu is a magical suit that transforms and she has a super form like Usagi from Sailor Moon. Also i looked online here is the defention : Magical girl is a subgenre of Japanese fantasy media centered around young girls who possess magical abilities, which they typically use through an ideal alter ego into which they can transform. Ryuko transforms and In the end she has the typical magical girl power of friendship in the end to get to her most powerful form just like other Magical Girls and If you break it down more you can see more stuff. If anything it's a magical girl shounen Anime a mix of both. ^_^

    Liam played an excellent heel, anyone familiar with both series knows Spike can’t win this matchup. Light shields, physical feats alone, the caster gun on top of that just seals it. Also the sword fish is not a match for the Outlaw Star.
