Death Battle Revy vs Max Payne by TaskForcePony Death Battle Revy vs Max Payne by TaskForcePony
These two skilled guns for hire are the hardest people to kill, not just due to their high skill with a gun, but they can take a hell of a lot of punishment and can just walk it off.

Revy is a part of a pirate mercenary group known as the Lagoon company and they have raided multiple targets such as Ships, military bases and more to fufill contracts set up by their employers. Revy is the main fighter of the group and is usually armed with two custom Beretta 92FS pistols but she can adapt to using other weapons like the RPG-7 rocket launcher and anti tank rifles. Revy has a hotheaded personality and usually relies on brute force, her near superhuman reaction time allows her to dodge bullets and has made her one of the deadliest fighters in the Black Lagoon franchise.

Max Payne is a former NYPD homicide detective who use to have a wife and daughter until they were brutally murdered in a home invasion, Max joined the DEA as a secret agent until he was framed for murder meaning he had to deal with criminals and police on his own avenging his family. Max is cleared by his contract from the inner circle and rejoined the NYPD and is reunited with his partner Mona Sax to solve the Inner Circle conspiracy while Max's world fell apart again. After Max left the New York for Sau Paulo Max becomes a hired security man and after his bosses daughter getting kidnapped Max goes in as a one man army taking on gangs and corrupt cops.

Which gun expert do you think will get the shot off the other and win in a battle to the death?

Revy belongs to Black Lagoon
Max Payne belongs to Rockstar Games

interesting match up. Max is a drug-addict and a drunk but has more experience and likely more knowledge of how to pace himself as well as a wider variety of weapon skills.

However he's also dependant on which weapons are around the battlefield at the time and again: he's a drug addict and drunk who hasn't even tried to recover, which will dull his abilities and hamper him severely. ESPECIALLY if the situation turns stressful and he doesn't have any booze or drugs to help him level it. Not that it would help as the way revy fights...

Revy may have some kind of personality disorder. She's very violent and very reckless on the battlefield, a combat junkie. She's probably about half of Max's age which means she's got more energy, strength and spring in her step, not to mention she's a more skilled hand-to-hand fighter and a more creative one. She doesn't have the same debilitating vices that Max suffers from, and is able to take more of a beating and shrug it off.

It would be a close call...but I'm calling Revy on this one.

While she's a psychotic (or borderline) she knows how to direct that bloodthirst in battle most of the time, and wouldn't be distracted by her personal demons. Max would put up a good fight but he's an old dog without many tricks. Not having many guns at his disposal (we would only let them have their standard armaments) means he would likely just hide and shoot but drugs and alcohol would've taken their toll on his system. He uses textbook combat strategies but Revy is a creative and aggressive fighter and would overwhelm him in the end.

or at least, that's how I see it.

It's too hard to compare an animated character to a live action character. How about Revy vs Xigbar from Kingdom Hearts?

Know what'd be an awesome team up? Max Payne and The Punisher.

They're both so much alike. :D

it takes more than experience to win a fight, like Max said before "The trick in my situation was that there was no trick, no matter what the movies tell you. No rules, no secret mantra, no road map. It wasn't about how smart or how good you were. It was chaos and luck, and anyone who thought different was a fool. All you could do was to hang on madly, as long and hard as you could."

While I do admit that Max has the better experience and training, his current self in the latest game isn't so well. Max is out of shape, an alcoholic, a former drug addict, and old. He's only managed to survive due to plot armor. Revy is younger and much more in shape. While her nearing insanity is a bit of a problem, I think she'll come out alive.
