Witch-king of Angmar vs. Count Dracula

Immortal, undead creatures of the night face off! Which of these powerful, evil sorcerers would win in a fight?

Count Dracula.

Just as the Witch-king goes in for the kill, his ring abruptly powers down when Sauron takes his One Ring off for long bath, leaving the Witch-king as just a spirit that Dracula can shoo away with a flip of his cape.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Hmmm.

Weaponry: Morgul blades vs fangs.
Mode of transport: flying fellbeast vs bat.
Diet: garlic vs no garlic.

Angmar wins.

What is interesting is that both entities existed in ME.

"A vampire shape with pinions vast
screeching leaped from the ground, and passed,
its dark blood dripping on the trees''
—J.R.R. Tolkien[2]

Thuringwethil - female vampire servant of Sauron - "may have been a maia".........in that case, she might exceed the Witch-King.
Re Count Dracula....an immortal vampire unless the Witch King drives a wooden stake into his chest...and Witch King - an undead - probably slight edge to the Witch King because Drac does have a kill zone.

Depends on the time of day.

Witch King doesn't seem to have any problems with daylight while Dracula (not being one of those shiny vampires) doesn't stand a chance in the sun.
