Death battle has some really wonky reasoning, so who knows.
I remember the Cloud vs Link fight was particularly biased.
They gave Cloud his shittiest Materia and then gave Link the exact items he needed to win. Then they downplayed how hard Cloud would have to swing his sword to heat and split pieces of skyscraper and decided Link's Z-Targeting was infallible (which resulted in the ridiculous claim that Link could perfectly block Omnislash).
And Link could apparently block anything? Apparently the researchers never noticed how Link can't block large attacks or how some heated attacks can still hurt him.
