Legolas can see reeeeeally well,
Legolas (and Gimli) versus Chirrut ╬mwe (and Baze Malbus)
Chirrut can't see at all, except through the Force.
For ranged combat,
Legolas has his bow and masterful marksmanship, with rapid shooting and multi-arrow shooting. Well accomplished as a archer, he used it to take down a cave troll, a fell beast, a mumak and its haradrim riders, etc.
Chirrut has his bowcaster and, despite his blindness, can snipe a TIE fighter in its mid-flight, causing it to crash into Imperial anti-aircraft artillery.
For close-quarters combat,
Legolas has his twin knives and physics-defying agility.
Chirrut had his stick and is played by Donnie Yen (Ip Man trilogy).
Legolas has keen, almost prescient Elven intuition,
Chirrut seems to have Force precognition, can walk with ease through a field of Death-trooper (like Stormtroopers but with aim) blaster fire without getting hit.
Legolas is supported by Gimli, a tank with a battle-axe. He's got Legolas' back, despite some misgivings about the Elves.
Chirrut is supported by Baze Malbus, a tank with a heavy repeating blaster cannon. He's got Chirrut's back, despite having skepticism about the Force.
Legolas (with or without Gimli) must stop Chirrut (with or without Baze) from pulling the master switch that would set off a chain reaction causing the Deeping Wall to fall (which must fall so that Chirrut's friends can get past and into the Glittering Caves to steal the plans to the Death Star, which are stored within a crystal in the cave.)
"That doesn't make much sense to me. But then again, you are quite small. Perhaps you're right."
