Who Would Win?: The Ultimate Duels Between Vikings And Game Of Thrones Characters!
News > Who Would Win?: The Ultimate Duels Between Vikings And Game Of Thrones Characters!
Both TV shows have millions of fans around the world, and they they both feature plenty of brutal violence, bad behaviour, broad-ranging kingdoms and political mischief backed by blades. But who do you think would win the duels between similar characters? Here are 13 comparisons to give you an idea!
1. Greatest mustache: Emperor Charles vs. Mace Tyrell
Charles seems to be spending a good amount of time curling the ends of his mustache, and Mace is just as successful with his facial hair. There is no winner to this game. We just can’t decide.
2. Deadliest glare: Ragnar Lothbrok vs. Arya Stark
At least 40 per cent of Ragnar’s authority comes from those unblinking blue orbs. But even the king of Denmark would quail before the steady gaze of Arya Stark! Winner’s kind of obvious on this round. ❤️
3. Toughest blonde: Lagertha vs. Daenerys Targaryen
Lagertha is one of the fiercest warriors to come out of Kattegat – and isn’t afraid to drive a knife into your belly if she thinks it’s best.And Daenerys Targaryen? Don’t even make us start. This will be a tough fight.
4. Best drinker: Floki vs. Tyrion Lannister
Floki’s eased back on the mead these days, but his capacity for booze used to be legendary. Tyrion Lannister, on the other hand, continues to be an inspiration to functional alcoholics everywhere. He can neck the wine and still manage to be the smartest, most capable man in the room.
5. Most missed: Athelstan vs. Ned Stark
Athelstan’s appearing in visions, causing rifts between former friends and has a secret son who could probably do with some fatherly support. Ned Stark? If it wasn’t for him losing his head, the Seven Kingdoms wouldn’t be in such a mess at the moment.
6. Worst couple: Ecbert and Judith vs. Jaime and Cersei Lannister
Ecbert & Judith are not technically related, but it’s still fairly gross to be Eskimo brothers with your own son. Especially while he’s still married to the woman involved.
And Jaime & Cersei Lannister... It’s not just that they’re brother and sister, or even that they’re twins – when this pair are together, they end up pushing small boys out of windows and making everyone around them miserable. Plus, poor Tyrion never even gets a look in.
7. Worst kid: Ivar vs. Joffrey Baratheon
Even in the womb, Ivar was fated to become a monster. And now he’s buried a hatchet in the head of another kid, it looks like those prophecies are coming true. The ultimate bad boy, Joffrey wouldn’t think twice about murdering a playmate – except he’d probably want to torture him a bit first.
8. Biggest betrayer : Rollo vs. Petyr Baelish
Duke is a hulking warrior who will betray you three times before breakfast and twice after. Just because he can. At least Littlefinger has some greater goal in mind when he betrays Jon Arryn, Ned Stark, Joffrey Baratheon, Ser Dontos, Lysa Arryn, Sansa Stark…aaaand so on.
9. Father of the year: Ragnar Lothbrok vs. Stannis Baratheon
Ragnar ditched Bjorn to chase Aslaug, wanted to have Ivar put down, never sees Magnus and left Ubbe and Hvitserk in an undefended camp while he went off fighting. Probably not the guy you want to hire next time you need a babysitter.
Say what you will about Ragnar, but he never had his beloved, innocent daughter burned at the stake to further his own ambitions.
10. Mightiest warrior : Rollo vs. Gregor Clegane
Yeah, Rollo will stab you in the back eventually, but while he’s on your side, there’s no better fighter and strategist than Rollo. Even trussed up in perfumed French togs, he’s still a military genius.
Gregor? Not even Bronn wanted to face this monstrosity of a man, who once burned half his little brother’s face off for stealing toys and can demolish a man’s skull with his bare hands. Even in death, he’s unstoppable.
11. Creepiest magicker : The Seer vs. Melisandre
Monstrously deformed and difficult to access visually, The Seer drops prophecy bombs like they’re going out of style – and isn’t above telling people when they’re going to die, in a matter-of-fact way.
Melisandre actually seems to be the only character who knows what she’s doing, knows what she wants and is on her way to getting it. Shame it comes at a cost …but you can’t make an omelette without murdering innocents for their royal blood, can you?
12. Weirdest trickster : Floki vs. Jaqen H’ghar
The clue is in his name – sounding a lot like the god of mischief, fanatical Floki is always ready with a giggle and a spanner to slip into the works (once he invents the spanner, that is).
Jaqen H’ghar? A man who has many faces. A man trains a girl to be like him. A man is no-one. And so forth.
13. Spookiest raven
We catch our first look at the Vikings ravens as they swoop down to eat from the fleshy, open wounds of men killed by the Vikings. Then, they caw and swirl around a wizard lookalike, before taking the dead into the clouds. Or Ragnar was hallucinating. We're not sure.
GoT: These just carry messages to each kingdom. Sometimes they have three eyes like the one in the latest GoT.
