Demons of the Ancient World: Balrog of Moria versus Chernabog Can't Post

Chernabog is the canonical name of the winged demon that appears in the Disney movie Fantasia in the "Night on Bald Mountain" sequence. http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Chernabog Might just be the coolest Disney villain-monster of all time.

Versus Durin's Bane, which one wins in a one on one fight? Place your bets.

whether Balrog has wings or not... [In reply to] Can't Post

Cherny has wings but in his movie he does not use them. Same goes for Bally, in his movie, although the wings are admittedly very vague and shadowy.

In videogame adaptations, Bally uses his wings to take long jumps. I would guess Cherny could at least do the same. I'm not sure Cherny has ever been portrayed as using his wings to fly. I haven't played the Kingdom Hearts games. The Disney wiki page that I linked to previously does not list flying as one of Cherny's powers.

The classic "does Bally have wings" question, which is only limited to the books, should not matter here. All portrayals are included for this discussion, and he has wings in the movies and games. The "can he fly?" question may matter, though--but the same question should be asked of Cherny, so it equals out.
