Dori, Nori, and Ori

were of the line of Durin and would probably whoop Bifur, Bofur, and fatty Bombur....

Depends on what you define as movie version.

Just going strictly on what we saw in the film itself it'd be Bifur, Bombur, and Bofur by a hair. Between the three of them they've got one scene of demonstrated fighting prowess via Bombur's barrel ride. Meanwhile Ori, Dori and Nori seem to be the designated damsels in distress when Bilbo's not there to fill the roll (hell Nori plays damsel in distress to Bilbo's hero at one point during the barrel fight scene). I'm not saying that Bofur would be much help in a fight, having been used as the damsel in distress himself once or twice, but Bifur at least is sufficiently axe crazy to handle himself if given a pointy enough stick.

That said, if we factor in any other media featuring these guys Ori, Dori, and Nori come out on top. In the lego games they have a vastly superior arsenal, equipped for both long range and short range attacks not to mention the fact that Dori is depicted as a seasoned warrior and veteran of the battle at Moria. In the books Dori's described as the strongest of the dwarves. In the character info tied in with the movie Nori's implied to be a bit of a thug while Bofur is described as one of the weaker and more cowardly of the dwarves. So overall the expanded "universe" seems to make Dori, Nori, and Ori out to be the better team.

I think Ori, Nori and Dori would win

Bombur is not very good in combat, Bifur is probably the best warrior in my opinion, Bofur are pretty good fighters but more an artist is not great warrior.

Ori are not particularly good warriors more authors, Dori is the best of those three according to me he's a good warrior, and Nori he's a bit like that do not really warrior

I think you would like this
