Damn, Takeshi Kovacs is on that list. I'm glad he's getting some recognition.

 

So this is basically just a competition where the person with most votes wins? Or is there anything more to it?

Okay, let's be realistic here.

If Perrin came up against certain Magicians he'd have no chance.

The strongest of all those I've read about is Pug.

 

The only downside is that Pug has mostly become a pacifist by nature.

But his power is so immense he can step across worlds.

Back in Magician, he levelled armies on his own.

 

 

I know we'll get a totally unrealistic result again, because fans vote for favourites not the strongest.

These kind of things are fun...

Since it really turns into a popularity contest they probably chose Perrin over Mat because I think it would be a WOT winner again no matter what. Mat is as popular as Rand if not more so.

I'm declaring the winner right here: Jon Snow!!!!!!!!!!! Just so ya'll aren't dissapointed when Mr. Whiny emo dude Perrin loses.

 

Jon beating Perrin would make more sense than Jaime even coming close to Rand because they are much closer skill/powers wise, so I could live with that. I wonder if Perrin could communicate with Ghost.

That would definitely be interesting if Perrin could, however I don't think it would effect anything because the direwolves are connected to the Stark family and not fighting the Last Battle like the wolves in the WoT world. Yeah I was kind of mad Jamie made it so far, but Jon is a better swordsman than Jamie, IMO, so I think if anyone without magic can win it would be Jon. Plus it's a big popularity contest, and Jon is a really popular character. Jacob is autmatically going to lose. I remember arguing so hard for Edward, not because I like the series, but because who he was up against in the first cage match he would've decimated, but of course because he sparkles means his powers aren't as good or something. haha

dont count perrin out just because he does not have magic, jamie made it to the finals last year with nothing other than sword fighting skills and he beat a god along the way. so we might have a chance

Well, I'm a Vin-believer. :) it'd be really cool if she went far, she does have some pretty awesome skills. As far as pure power goes (from what I've heard/ read) Pug and Quick Ben and definitely the top two. But for popularity? Hmph, Jon and Perrin will probably be up there. Even though I totally <3 Perrin, I can't support him in this. He just doesn't stand up to the competition.

 

This'll be fun, though :)

I agree Drus would kick Perrins ass.

 

As for Pug, well, he could just make a moon drop on you. Pug to win.

 

I always wondered why they never put Ashen-Shugar in the last one, Can you imagine Rand vs Ashen-Shugar? That would be an awesome fight; both swordsmen, both top end magic users.

I guess I'll have to RAFO to see why Jon Snow is so highly favored.

 

I'm halfway through aGoT, and Snow has done nothing but sit on a wall and train some rapists kids. lol

Honestly, I don't see how Thomas Covenant doesn't win this.

 

If we are making the assumptions that they all have the powers they would have in their respective books, he's basically God.

 

(Unless this is the Covenant from the first Chronicles only, then he gets walked on by everyone.)

i don't think Perrin will win this one.

I'm going for Pug. Main reason being that magician was my intro to fantasy and pug has stayed one of my fav characters

 

hmmm but I still think they should put Nakor the blue rider in there somewhere lol he would confuse the hell out of everyone

Most of the arguments for Jon are based on the series popularity since, in reality, he'd probably get his ass kicked in Round 3. Ghost is a factor to consider as well. Jon probably wins since the Ice and Fire fanbase will be out in full force due to the fact that the HBO adaptation of Game of Thrones is a month away and Bantam has finally announced a release date for A Dance with Dragons. JULY 12TH!!!! WOOOO!!!!!

 

My favorites characters:

Jon Snow

Quick Ben

Vin

Paul Atreides

 

In no particular order. I'm unfamiliar with most of the field but I researched them all a little bit so I could vote fairly. Realistically, I think Quick Ben takes it all. He has 12 warrens at his command. Some people argue for Pug because of his godlike power. I would answer with this. How many times has Quick spat in a god's face? "You will not have me, Lord, because you can't." What's gonna happen? The final is gonna come down to Perrin vs. Jon Snow. Jon wins because of the WoT fandome's general contempt for Perrin even though the fan base will get him into the final in the first place. Anyway, the bracket went up on Friday if anyone wants to check it out click here. Voting starts at 10:00A.M. EST tomorrow!

My money's on Jacob.

 

Jacob doesn't stand a chance in the voting. Most of the people who follow sites like suvudu are readers of deeper, more intellectual fantasy. So even though the Twilight series has a massive fan base not as many will turn up for the tournament. It's gonna be very interesting though. Since they did seeding randomly the first round is gonna have some huge match-ups! It's weird that Jacob got pitted against a vampire. Haha!

I've only read about half the list, but Perrin is near the bottom of my favored list. He might beat Jon Snow, but either of them would get creamed by anyone else on the list of stuff I've actually read. Even Jacob Black would tear them up easily. They only one lower on the list than them is Gollum.

 

So, I'm not voting for Perrin even though Jason threatened to ban me (from ALL WoT sites, no less) if I don't. I'm voting for Quick Ben.

None of those impotent wizards from the Harry Potter series would stand a chance against any of the main characters in the WoT or evuen a well trained Accepted for that matter.

 

Jacob from Twilight or Golem from LotR, don't make me laugh.

 

The only easy Perrin stands a chance against gods and demigod is if facing Perrin means facing him and all of hours forces. A couple of Asha'men, Wise Ones and Aes Sedia and ten thousand troops including Aiel and Two Rivers archers, would make formidable for even a demigod. Ad in his ta'veren nature and he would even give a god a run for their money.
