Thought we'd have a little "battle" thread between different characters within similar mythologies/books/movies/etc. I just finished The Hobbit trilogy few days ago and this one came to mind.


Who do you think would win in a battle between Smaug from The Hobbit and Drogon from GRRM's books. I say books for Drogon because I realise he isn't in his final, mature form yet on the show. Or say....a season 7 Drogon on Game of Thrones(imagine).

A lot of you have read these books and know more than me. I'm curious. hmm

Smaug for me too

We haven't seen fully grown Drogon yet.

Pls just don't spoil anything yet in this thread. Haven't seen the final Hobbit movie and of course I'm not GoT book reader.

OT: I don't know. No comment.

By the way that picture is not Drogon, that's Balerion.

Smaug actually talks, he beats Drogon right now for sure, but Drogon is getting larger and larger... we just don't know how fearsome he'll be in his prime.

Balerion the Black Dread, could take both of them at the same time tbh.

You don't want to mess with Tolkien dragons because all roads lead to Ancalagon the Black

http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/017/f/a/Dragon_of_the_First_Age_by_rubendevela.jpg
Those flying things next to Eärendils ship? Great Eagles.

Book Smaug is a Dragon (6 limbs) that reached 20-25m (according to Tolkiens own illustration - size is never specifically compared and his written descriptions of Smaug are far grander than his own illustration). Book Drogon is a Wyvern (4 limbs) with a wingspan of 20ft(6m) the last time we read any mention of his size.

Film Smaug is a 50m long Wyvern with with a 60m wingspan and TV Drogon is a Wyvern with an 8m wingspan in this scene. An F15 has a 13m wingspan!

Which as readers know isn't too far off from where we left Drogon in the Books

There literally is no contest in the books or on film. A more fitting opponent to Smaug is Balerion whose size comparisons in their books are similarly vague. Film-wise just compare Aria and the skull she hides in in S1 to Bilbo and Smaug. Bilbo is 1m tall while Maisie is 1.55m.

DEATH BATTLE: Smaug the Terrible Vs Drogon the Winged Shadow Smaug-and-Bilbo

Smaug however possesses above human intelligence and an extra set of limbs whilst Balerion is an animal.

EDIT: The actual Balerion skull & Arya comparison

DEATH BATTLE: Smaug the Terrible Vs Drogon the Winged Shadow 1014143_550740914986151_1204216074_n

Yeah... Doesn't seem like Smaug vs. Balerion is a contest either.

Moral of the story? Don't mess with Tolkien dragons. Smaug is but the smallest named dragon. A more fitting opponent for Drogon as we know him would be Film LotR's Great Eagles or Fell Beasts which have a wingspan of ~ 20m. (Book Great Eagles are far far larger - Thorondor has a wingspan of 55m. That's the same wingspan as a B52!)

Gonna say Drogon. Smaug's too smug....he'd get roasted during one of his monologues Laughing

Drogon is a dragon of few words. He roasts first and asks questions later...before roasting again for BBQ.

My dragon is larger than anyone mentioned and would defeat them all. Doesn't spit fire but something else, though.
