Assume it's an entire Hive Fleet. Only fantasy novel/anime/manga universes based on mainly one planet are allowed. Orbital colonies are allowed but no multistellar empires.

The Saiyans pre-Planet Vegeta's Destruction could take them.

They can't breathe in space. Nid's have the have the Hive Mind. Really, Pre-planet Vegeta's destruction? WRONG! If we go by resources and numbers, the Nids could just throw telepaths, yes, quadrillions-quintillions of telepaths... Posted Image

If they have that many numbers, then I don't think it is likely that one planet's population could stop them. Earth's population is not even into the tens of billions and if they have quardrillions or more of just telepath units, then I there simply would not be enough people on one planet military or otherwise to do anything.

Yep that's how they win... Complete and utter domination by Numbers... Besides, they wouldn't need that many Psykers, because as soon as they take even ONE Saiyan down and render him down to biomass the next wave of Tyranids will probably be flying at supersonic speeds, with skin as hard as adamantium, throwing Ki Nukes around like candy at a parade... All thanks to absorbing the DNA from the Saiyan Elite.

Saiyans are resistant to telepathy. That being said, they are susceptible to diseases, and mycetic spores are worse than a mere heart virus any day.

Quite right there, IIRC they digest you from the inside out...

Like quadrillions of quintillions of telepaths? I have never seen proof of resistance to telepathy, and they even have hundreds of quintillions-low end sextillions total, no way the Saiyans could even survive long enough to hurt the Hive Fleet. But since this is one, I can see mid quintillions pouring down onto the planet.

Simple... Warp Blast. It's a blast of Pure Warp Energy, he can't really choose to not have it hit him, since it is a pure piece of the Immaterium made manifest. The physical portion of it would harmlessly pass through him, but the psyker part of it would rip his soul to shreds.

Tyki Mikk's powers don't really work like intangibility it's more likechoosing what is part of his reality. But I can't really describe it that way so I'll think of another way to.

Warhammer 40K is worse than DBZ when it comes to twink fantasies. A fight between an ENTIRE FRIKKIN HIVE FLEET and a single planet is like saying "Who would win in this fight: God, Satan, Buddha, and all of the Mythological Pantheons vs. a turtle with a spork."

I'd also vote for that turtle if that was a CBUB fight.

I'd give an F to that fight.

You gave the turtle a spork. Total stomp. Satan has no chance...

Is Beyonder even Manga B)

You've never heard of the Marvel Mangaverse ™?

C'mon, they're the real deal. Their eyes take up half their face, no one ever cuts anyone's hair, and Gundams destroy large cities for fun. Just take a look:

Also, if Beyonder's not allowed, I play Manga Jesus!

I don't know, I'm going to throw the various Final Fantasy universes out there. That's fantasy right? I'm talking all the characters. All the various summons. Everything. It says fantasy in the name. I don't really know much about the Tyranid.

I seem to recall saying once that a particularly powerful summon reminded me of a greater daemon...

But if they're that powerful then I'd just show them to the Hierophant... or all of his cousins...

Please note that their are more powerful summons.
