Growing bored, the gods of the multiverse have decided to play a little came of gladiator. They summoned together all the most formidable champions known to mankind, no magic allowed, and placed them in the arena to fight to the death. The winner walks away with his life, as well as an eternal place in Fantasy history.
So here it is, ladies and gentlemen,
Let the games begin.
5) Jaime Lannister-Game of Thrones
The Kingslayer grabs the attention of the gods. Infamously known to be the best swordsman in Westeros, Jaime quickly rises in the ranks of the colosseum, cutting down hundreds of enemies from all races. However, as the gods admire his skill, a mysterious opponent approaches Jaime, beckoning a challenge. Jaime accepts…
4) Adolin Kholin-The Stormlight Archive
Even without his shards, Brightlord Adolin is a genius with the blade and an expert strategist. He survived a duel with Relis, Elit, Jakamav, and Abrobadar…time to add Jaime Lannister to that list.
As Adolin strikes Jaime down, gaining the favor of the gods, he notices that the crowd’s attention has turned away from him. The gods have focused on a shadowy warrior as he single-handedly slays two giants. Naturally, Adolin challenges the newcomer to a duel. Little did he know he’d get more than he bargained for…
3) Geralt of Rivia-The Wticher
Although Geralt can no longer use his signs, this white-haired witcher doesn’t need them to slice up his enemy. He is quick, efficient, and deadly. He learns his enemies weaknesses extremely quick, and adapts to circumstances. He is used to fighting extremely magical creatures with mostly his natural skill, which gives him an advantage over Adolin, and he definitely knows how to take a hit.
It’s a close call, but Geralt manages to bring the Shardles Brightlord to his knees.
2) Aragorn- The Lord of the Rings
The High King of Gonor and Arnor stands utop a mountain of hundreds of slain enemies. He is an expert with the blade, able to take on multiple enemies at once, including five Nazgul. Unlike the Witcher, he never had a need for magic. He is a pure, human warrior, and a force to be reckoned with. Together with his faithful Andúril, he brings the Witcher to his end.
1) Al'Lan Mandragoran- A Wheel of Time
Lord of the Seven Towers.
Lord of the Lakes.
True Blade of Malkier.
Defender of the Wall of the First Fires.
Bearer of the Sword of the Thousand Lakes.
This man is known by so many titles, he is no longer just a man. He is a legend.
Lan has dedicated his entire life forging himself into a living weapon. Even Demandred, the general of the Shadow army, could not stand against him.
He is brilliant, calculating, cool, disciplined, and extremely deadly. His prowess is unmatched, perhaps even across the entire Fantasy multiverse.
The last two heroes standing, Lan and Aragorn engage in a ferocious battle, keeping the gods on their feet. The gods watch in utter shock as Aragorn brings Al’Lan to his knees…but it was all a ploy. Al’Lan allows Aragorn’s blade to slice through his stomach, only to strike Aragorn’s exposed throat. They both fall to the ground…however, only one of them breathing.
Enthralled by the skill and determination displayed by both warriors, the gods resurrect Aragorn, heal the two heroes, and give them each a place in the eternal realm, adding yet another title to their names:
The Greatest Swordsmen of the Fantasy Multiverse.
