    What if.... this vs that

    As far as strength and abilities concerned, which will win if they fight on even terms (no suprise, no ambush just straight face to face fight like gandalf vs balrog)..

    Gandalf VS Balrog of Moria = DRAW

    Tulkas VS Melkor = ?

    Turin Turambar VS Aragorn = ?

    Gimli VS Legolas = ?

    Aragorn VS Boromir = ?

    Beorn VS Balrog = ?

    Raghadast VS Saruman = ?

    I'd say:


    Gandalf VS Balrog of Moria = DRAW

    Tulkas VS Melkor = Tulkas

    Túrin Turambar VS Aragorn = Túrin Turambar

    Gimli VS Legolas = Legolas

    Aragorn VS Boromir = Aragorn

    Beorn VS Balrog = Balrog

    Radagast VS Saruman = Saruman



    Coincidentally, there's one you left out that we know for sure:

    Túrin Turambar VS Melkor = Túrin Turambar

    Re: What if.... this vs that

    Gandalf VS Balrog of Moria = Draw

    Tulkas VS Melkor = Melkor up until the end times prophecy is fulfilled.

    Turin Turambar VS Aragorn = Hurin. lol

    Gimli VS Legolas = pffft Gimli.

    Aragorn VS Boromir = pound for pound I'd say Boromir to be honest.

    Beorn VS Balrog = Balrog.

    Raghadast VS Saruman = Saruman.

    i was under impression that BEORN is a gigantic man and very powerful one. also known as shape shifter in bear form and definitely take on orcs/wolves with ease.

    if he fight against moria Balrog, will he at least get a draw ( both dead ) ?

    even gandalf and 13 dwarves got scared of beorn in the Hobbitt

    btw another one crossed my mind.. what happen if

    SMAUG vs Moria BALROG

    I have been thinking of this. Not just Smaug, but rather all dragons.

    The dragon's obviously had great intelligence, and could speak fairly easily, or aleast Glaurung and Smaug. They had great strength, and pushed back even the army led by the Valar, and yet the greatest dragon of all, Ancalagon was slain by one man (Who had a flying ship and a Silmaril, but that is beside the point ). Most of the Balrog's had been slain at this time, so I'm not sure how it would have gone if the Balrogs replaced the dragons.

    Now, in Smaug vs Durin's Bane, I'd have to lean towards Durin's Bane. First off, he was a Maiar. Secondly, Smaug's greatest weapon, his fire, would have little effect on a demon of fire and shadow. Smaug's love of riddles who also have little effect here. As demonstrated by Azaghal, Turin, and Bard, the underbelly of a dragon seems to be fairly easy to pierce (Don't know about the scales on a dragon's back, Smaug's claim of 'tenfold shields' seems to be an exaggeration for the sake of impressing Bilbo). In land vs land, Durin's Bane would seem to be more lithe and agile, while if Smaug was flying, he would have no real way to attack.

    In the end, Durin's Bane would win, easily.

    Nope, Gandalf won. He may have died, but the Balrog died first.

    Tulkas, duh. He wrestled with Melkor and tossed him on his face and practically sat on him.

    Hmm... Draw maybe. Or Turin.

    Quote Originally Posted by rindaleo View Post

    Legolas. Elves are superior to dwarves, and Legolas could just hide in a tree and shoot Gimli.

    Aragorn. He was of a higher and greater bloodline.

    Hmm... Thats a toughie. I would say he could probably kill it, but he would die as well (just like everyone else that ever killed a Balrog)

    Before or after Gandalf became The White? If before, saruman easily. After words though... Who knows. Might be a draw.

    Yeah, but by that time he wasn't just Saruman the White, he was "Saruman of Many Colours". Okay, I jest.

    He would have been pretty weak actually, being dead and all.

    He wouldn't have been that great a choice actually, being dead and all.
