Decisions, decisions. [In reply to] Can't Post

Honestly, I can't imagine the two of them fighting to the death. Just doesn't seem to be in their individual personalities. Sharing pipeweed, that's another story.

Lightsaber vs Staff [In reply to] Can't Post

Really, the question comes down to which is superior in battle: a lightsaber or a staff?

Yoda and Saruman could use the "force" ... Wink and Saruman could shoot out balls of flame.

Therefore, Saruman > Yoda Laugh

hmmm.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hard to say, at first. Let's break it down.

Physical-only: lightsaber versus Glamdring & staff. Yoda is quite the sprightly one. Gandalf is pretty good too, but Yoda I think can jump circles around and above him. His lightsaber would probably cut through Glamdring & staff like butter unless they are lightsaber-proof through magic. Edge: Yoda.

Magic versus force powers?

Energy-type attacks: They seem rather evenly matched. Yoda can absorb any lightning or fire Gandalf might throw at him (assuming Gandalf would do such a thing. More likely they'd become pipe smoking buddies as someone has commented.) Gandalf can create a force shield against anything Yoda might do offensively. Toss-up.

Telekinesis attacks. They can each handle themselves in this type of combat, but Yoda, in terms of the movies only, seems more accomplished in that regard. Gandalf lost a telekinesis battle against Saruman. Yoda never lost in that regard, though he did lose to Palpatine in an all-out duel that included telekinesis. It's a toss-up.

Smarts versus smarts? Hard to say. both are wise beyond measurement. Gandalf is a bit more accomplished in terms of grand strategy. Didn't Yoda get outsmarted by Palpatine? Edge: Gandalf.

Lifespan versus lifespan? Gandalf is immortal and comes back if his physical body gets killed. Yoda is sorta immortal in the one-with-the-Force spiritual sense only. Edge: Gandalf.

Overall: Gandalf! by a very slim margin.

I really can't decide. [In reply to] Can't Post

I think they would end up talking about how horrible things have gotten since they were younger.

Nor early is he. Precisely when he means to, he arrives. Mmmmm, yes!

But Yoda's already *in* LOTR. [In reply to] Can't Post

In disguise, but it's pretty obvious once you notice it.

Ok, I'll give you a hint. Highlight below to read it.

"Bright blue his jacket is, and his boots are yellow."

See? The dialogue completely gives it away.



"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

So are you saying [In reply to] Can't Post

That Yoda actually ended up in exile in Middle-earth, and not Dagobah?
