Gimli V Eomer Can't Post

When i read the book i really wanted these to guys to end up fighting but it never got to that. I think Gimli would have wiped the floor with Eomer

Is it a mounted battle? [In reply to] Can't Post

If so, Gimli loses before Eomer even attacks. But otherwise, I think Gimli is the more skilled fighter (having I don't know how many years - or hundreds of years - head start on Eomer)

If Gandalf could just jump on an eagle and fly into Mordor... WHY IN THE NAME OF ERU DIDN'T HE DO IT THREE MOVIES AGO!?!

On foot [In reply to] Can't Post

Even if Gimli was on horseback and Eomer wasn't I still think Gimli would do more damage to himself.

Now this is mean... [In reply to] Can't Post

Putting two awesome fighter against each other... but then thats the point isen't it?

I'm rooting for Gimli!

Shhhh! Don't tell Eomer!

Dagonet,
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shdows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Gimli! [In reply to] Can't Post

He just has a winning way with blondes.

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.

Book Gimli or movie Gimli? [In reply to] Can't Post

All of the jokes making fun of Gimli do so in the movie, not the book.

What is in the book is that Gimli and Legolas do indeed have a competition at Helm's Deep for who can kill the most orcs, which Gimli fairly wins (by just one orc). Eomer never comes close to that. My vote's on Gimli.
