In my opinion, and I suppose it is just that, is this isn't even really a debateable topic. I mean, we're talking about a bipedal canine named Goofy. I'm fairly certain even my mom's year old poodle could take out that big shoed freak. Given those things (and more to come), I'm sure Pluto could beat the crap Goofy, totally.

Greetings. First, I would like to thank my opponent for starting this debate and extending the challenge of debating to anyone. With formalities out of the way, let us proceed:

First, I would like to make it known that the job of the pro is to prove that "PLuto" would not totally beat the crap out of Goofy.

With that said, I will address my opponent's argument(s) and add a few of my own.

My opponent doesn't really provide any valid reasons as to why Pluto would beat the crap out of Goofy. All he does is provide a baseless assertion concerning his mother's poodle.

According to American Heritage Dictionary, would is defined as:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

American Heritage Dictionary - Cite This Source - Share This will 2 (wĭl) Pronunciation Key
aux.v. Past tense would (wŏŏd)

Used to indicate simple futurity: They will appear later.
Used to indicate likelihood or certainty: You will regret this.
Used to indicate willingness: Will you help me with this package?
Used to indicate requirement or command: You will report to me afterward.
Used to indicate intention: I will too if I feel like it.
Used to indicate customary or habitual action: People will talk.
Used to indicate capacity or ability: This metal will not crack under heavy pressure.
Used to indicate probability or expectation: That will be the messenger ringing.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

With that said, I submit that Pluto "would" not totally beat the crap out of Goofy. Both him and Goofy are of gentle spirits and would thus have no reason to fight each other in a brawl. Not to mention that Goofy and Mickey are good friends, so Pluto would no doubt respect the wishes of his master too much to assault the "bipedal canine."

That said, if the resolution were "Pluto could totally beat the crap out of Goofy", things may be different although the advantage would still be in goofy's favor. In both of the "Goof Troop" films, Goofy has used his acrobatics as well as his godly level of luck to get out of the most dire of situations. Not to mention that in the video games "Kingdom Hearts I and II", he has aided Sora in battling the most powerful of evil nemeses. This video is a good example: . No doubt would Mickey's pet be in a heeping amount of trouble if he were to pick a fight with someone who opposes foes like the one in the above video on a regular basis. However, since the resolution states "would" rather than "could", this isn't even an issue.

Thank you.

My opponent doesn't address my arguments, thus making an extension of them is well warranted.

He presents no valid evidence for his claims and I've presented valid evidence against them.

Thus, I urge you to vote in favor of my case. Thank you.

I don't know, there's something awfully suspicious about that Pluto. I've seen the way he stares at Goofy...

pure malice.

Yeah, I suppose I will have to buy one sometime. Bit pricey.... sigh.....

Agreed. However, it is really a shame that the 3rd game (as well as the new FF games) will be released on the PS3 alone. :(

Definitely, I probably give it second behind Final Fantasy. Those are very cool, especially when made by square-soft.

I wholeheartedly agree. I was given the game for one of my birthdays and thought it would just be some disney game before playing it. However, after actually playing it, I was hooked. The series is actually (in my opinion at least) one of the best series of video games I've ever played.

They were rather amazing. I love the final fantasy series and I think the idea was very cool. Not to mention they always seemed to have an underlying philosophical theme and play nothing like a Disney game. Far more challenging, more interesting.

Your thoughts?

Yeah, the Kingdom Hearts thing occured to me at the last second (though I still think the "would" argument is stronger).

By the way, does this mean you've played Kingdom Hearts? If so, what were your thoughts?

Wish I had done this one. I would have used Kingdom Hearts hard core.
