line by line [In reply to] Can't Post

riders of rohan vs. biker scouts.
Riders: master of the horse, can wield spears and shoot bows while riding.
Biker Scouts: they're stormtroopers, therefore they can't shoot for their lives. They have fancy speeder bikes, but they keep flying into trees.
Edge: Riders.

imperial army vs. armies of mordor
Imperials: Stormtroopers can't shoot.
Armies of Mordor: Orcs can't shoot either.
Edge: Draw.

armies of Minas Tirith vs. clone army
Minas Tirith: Seven layers of stone walls surrounding a silver and pearl spike that is the tower of Ecthelion, with silver trumpets in the background.
Clone army: eventually they got replaced by Stormtroopers.
Edge: Minas Tirith.

dunedain rangers vs. the rebellion
Rangers: bad ass, wilderness-bred Numenoreans with part-Elven heritage and impressive longevity.
Rebellion: X-wing and Y-wing fleets, succeeded in taking out the Death Star twice.
Edge: Draw.

Obi Wan vs. Gandalf
Obi Wan: old grey-bearded wiseman gets killed but becomes one with the Force and continues to appear as a spirit to say things like "I was telling you the truth...from a certain point of view".
Gandalf: old grey-bearded wiseman gets killed but comes back, in physical form and stronger than before, as the new Chief of his Order, the brains behind the force that ultimately prevails against the Shadow.
EDGE: Gandalf.

Darth Vader vs. Sauron
Vader: Mean, black-armored dude with great powers, has a sympathetic backstory, ends up redeemed. Along the way he was a Dark Lord of the Sith, but always the apprentice, never the master.
Sauron: Mean, black-armored dude with great powers, is a villain from way back, ends up destroyed. But along the way he was the Main Boss Bad Guy.
Edge: Sauron, but Vader is more likeable.

Luke Skywalker vs. Aragorn.
Luke: farm boy learns the ways of the Jedi, brings balance to the Force, eventually founder of the new Jedi order.
Aragorn: woodsman returns from exile to bring the monarchy back to Gondor, eventually its next King after many generations of kinglessness.
EDGE: it's a draw.

Count Dooku vs. Saruman
Dooku: can fence expertly in the "duelling" style of lightsaber, and a powerful dark force user. Led the Separatists, but actually he was a pawn of his secret Sith Master, who would become Emperor.
Saruman: was able to defeat Gandalf in a magical duel, and was a powerful wizard. Led the forces of Isengard, but actually he was overshadowed and manipulated by the dark lord Sauron, who was the master of Shadow and personification of evil.
Edge: it's a draw.

FINAL TALLY: LOTR by a slim margin.

A bag is like a hole that you can carry with you.
