Manga evidence only. I know that Kenpachi has the larger fan base and will most likely win the poll solely because of this and no other reason. Would Mayuri get cut up? Yes. But Mayuri be able to take him in the long run simply due to the poisons and other tricks up his sleeves. Kenpachi is a lovable insane sword fighter but brute force is something that wouldn't work very well in this type of fight. Mayuri is one of the "weaker" captains that transforms any fight he's involved into something more on his type of playing field.
Poison based that infects and can kill even if he loses.
Genius Level intelligence
Isn't Above cheating
Most fights are in his favor due to his fighting style
Has more potential due to inventions
Appears to be one of the slower captains.
Appears to be one of the worst sword fighters.
Appears to be one of the weaker captains.
Extremely powerful swordfighter
Insanely high reistu
Mayuri's style would make Kenpachi adapt to him
No cure for poisons
Conclusion: Due to each of their fighting styles and how Kenpachi fights. He allows people to attack and cut him and this would be his downfall. Mayuri would take advantage of this. Mayuri would take major damage but has proven to be maybe the only captain to withstand the same amount of damage that Kenpachi can and still survive. It would be a great battle but due to poison Mayuri would win even if he lost. Kenpachi will win this poll due to popularity and because Mayuri gets NO respect. Poor evil Scientist guy.
If I am not mistaken, these two really hate each other, so I doubt this fight would go on a classical Zaraki fight scenario.
To my mind it is highly unlikely that Kenpachi lets Mayuri cut him cause he knows about scientist's poison for sure. As you mentioned, Kenpachi is wreckless but not that stupid when dealing with such opponent.
If Zaraki acts fast he's got a chance to take Kurotsuchi down before he goes bankai.
Although I am not sure whether it is possible to kill Mayuri with such zanpaktou since he is liquid or whatever trick is that, and something like Ryūjin Jakka is needed here lol.
If we put these characters' popularity aside and assume this is a fight without preparations (a very important condition lol) I would say these two guys have an even chance of winning adding that for Kenpachi it is a mortal combat lol.
By the way, they are gonna fight in the third movie, no?

There was a scene where they fought at the beginning of episodes 197-198 in the OP.Quote:
Yeah, that's the reason Mayuri might lose.

If Kenpachi acts in character then its game over for him no questions asked. He also can't let Mayuri go Bankai because then we have poison baby.
Then again Kenpachi can effectively own the giant baby by going kendo the very moment Mayuri activates his Bankai and work from their.
Kenpachi better not act like himself, he'll just let Mayuri cut him/ he'll purposely take hits. Heck Mayuri is one guy who can take hits just for the fun of it since he can just regenerate arms.

I think a fight between them would be awesome. Both of them fight by consciously of unconsciously scaring the crap out of their enemies and kill them on the inside little by little. Just a look at their fights with grants and nnoitora shows that perfectly.
Maturi has the brains but kempachi in terms of brute force and spirit energy is superior. Given how the two of them fight I am inclined to believe it is a tie but it is really hard to say.... Both of them can take massive amounts of damage without flinching, both enjoy the carnage and both enjoy watching their preys suffer to some extent. Epic fight IMO.
Yes the fight would be fun. It's classic brains vs. brawn and the guys totally hate each other to say the least.
I bet you if they did fight, and Mayuri used his shikai's ability to sever motor nerves, that Kenpachi would overcome that on sheer will alone. He'd pull something like that out of his butt.
But I'd give it to Mayuri. His bankai's breath alone is enough to kill Kenpachi after a while. It doesn't need to actually skewer him with its baby-chest-blades (hehe).
I can't see Kenpachi losing this fight at all. As wreckless as he is, he does have some strategy if it was ever needed. I think it's possible for him to blast away any gas with smoke. Just like Szayel wasn't made an Espada necessarily for his fighting skill but for his intellect, I believe that Mayuri has much more intellect than fighting ability. If he did, than he wouldn't need to hack his zanpakuto or his body.
Power-wise Kenpachi has him. Speed-wise I would say they could almost be on the same level, I have seen Kenpachi be swift when he wants to be. Alot of people do have that mindset about him, yes, but for good reason. The man has a lot of strength and experience.
Ken is a monster. But mayuri is a genius, mad but smart
Also, isn't mayuri's weakness is if u hit him hard enough he turns to liquid thus meaning he lose?? I could totally see ken doing that.
As for mayuri's bankai, that can be stopped by ken easily.
The problem is the poison and how ken will react to it. Can he blow it away with his SP??
