The Harpists from Kung Fu Hustle have been hired by Kingpin to do away with Nightwing (Grayson). It is the middle of the night and Nightwing finds himself on the opposite end of an alley. He is unprepared for this ambush but luckily he has a spear staff with him, but ONLY his spear staff, no other gear. Can Nightwing defeat The Harpists or does he get torn to pieces just like the 3 kung fu masters of Pig Sty alley?
 



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
  I STRONGLY encourage you to look at the Harpist's fight scene so you can see what they are capable of. 
 
 
 
 
 
Rules
Nightwing only gets his staff, nothing else.
The fight starts from opposite ends of the long alleyway in THIS picture.
The Harpists get the first strike since it is their ambush.
Fight is won by KO, giving up, or death.

Harpist wins. If Nightwing doesn't know Harpist is there then he can simply be decapitated by sound waves.

Nightwing sees them from the other end of the alley, but he thinks they are harmless musicians. However, he is facing their direction. That said, let's say Nightwing narrowly dodges the first strike from the opposite end of the alley and then prepares himself.

@CortSether: 
If he dodges the first attack he stands a chance but even then it's still slim. One hit from the Harpist and he's down.  Not to mention some of the Harpists stealth attack is very quiet and hard to notice so that lessens his chance of a first dodge.

Nightwing wins this quite easily. He kicks the crap out of the harpists in the same way that the old guy does at the end of the video. If that old guy was able to PWN the harpists then Nightwing would do it easily.

@BoysHaveaPen!sGirlsHaveaV@gina: 
Just asking have you seen Kung Fu Hustle? Because old guy isn't exactly weak. Also I don't know if the vid the OP posted shows how the Harpist can decapitate an opponent with one hit. Not trying to say you're wrong(maybe I'm underestimating Nightwing.), I'm just not sure if you know how powerful the Harpist is.

@Decoy Elite: Yep, the video includes everything from the first guy getting decapitated (along with the poor kitty D:) up to getting beat up by the landlords.

Nightwing should win rather easily. His reflexes are too much for those guys from what I saw in the video.

They were focusing their chi to make blades and all kinds of crap with the air. But you're acting as if they could even tag Nightwing. Nightwing is much too fast for the Harpists and if you saw, the Harpists were easily defeated by an old coot at the end.

Is Nightwing faster than the speed of sound?

Those blades weren't going at the speed of sound, you can easily tell in watching the video clip that Cort posted.

Oh really? Then would you mind explaining how 2 kung fu masters passed their primes, who cannot move at the speed of sound, were able to dodge so many of those blades?

I did see the movie. The 3 kung fu masters are not above peak human. That's why the kicking master got decapitated in the very beginning and the other two got their asses handed to them. Even when they were fighting the axe gang at one point the kicking master had to take an axe-man hostage and swerve around with an axe in his hand because he would have been swarmed. The only one truly above peak human in that movie is the Beast and the other guy after he gets his powers unlocked. 
 
Nightwing kicks the crap out of the harpists.

You're the one first stating ridiculous claims. You need to provide the evidence to back it up. 
 
In either case, relating to the battle at hand, there is no way the Harpists win this one. Nightwing is fast enough to dodge the blades and his combat skill is one of the best in DCU. He'd pwn the Harpists just like the landlord did them.

Virtually every fighter in that movie is above peak human. They are all seen performing feats that no human being could ever dream of doing. 
Nightwing, on the other hand, is and has always been peak human. You were asked to show some sort of evidence that states that he is superhuman, but you deflected, saying that Deava needs to be the one to give evidence. Until you give proof of Nightwing's status as a superhuman (which I can guarantee you won't) your argument is null.
