In a 1 on 1 fight who would win Maximus from Gladiator or Leonidas from 300? And how long would the fight last
Link Posted: 8/5/2007 2:39:06 PM EDT


Leonidas with a first round KO.

I think this may be the greatest vs. question ever asked on arfcom.

Leonidas would drop kick Maximus with rock music playing in the background.

Hmm.........hard to say............but since Maximus is a fictional character, let's make it even more interesting...............Leonidas vs. Achilles

Achilles was a pussy, leonidas would destroy him.

I have to go with maximus. Lenodius was trained in and the spartans were prized for fighting as a phalanx in a group not individual combat
Link Posted: 8/5/2007 2:45:10 PM EDT
Maximus was a farmer.

Leonidas was a soldier.

Most posts will reflect the post-masterbatory afterglow from recent 300 viewing; while Gladiator is a few years old. I would put my money on the gladiator having the edge in single combat.

true, if he stabbed him in the heel

Thanks but I have to watch the 2nd Bourne movie with my wife so she can catch up on the story before we go see the latest in the theater.

Leonidas. His spear has more reach than Maximus's sword.
Link Posted: 8/5/2007 3:03:55 PM EDT
I believe Spartans are very well versed in man on man combat. Maximus wouldn't get inside Leonidas' spear.
Link Posted: 8/5/2007 3:07:09 PM EDT
Oh, oh what about this! Lets say they are both juiced up on meth. and they can only use sporks, like you get at KFC, for weapons. Now that is fucking entertaining!

Maximus...if only to have his revenge, in this life or the next!

After all the Spartans didnt go round the known world looking for fights...Romans did... and came up on all kinda new adversaries that Spartans had no knowledge of.

And Maximus is a fox and Leonidas is an ocelot or something.

And then they have sex.

So, you're saying Maximus can't take a full-power shot from Leonidas?

Leonidas.

He is the product of superior genetic engineering through generations of selective breeding.

He has been trained since birth to fight.

He is in much better shape.

Although Maximus could have a Rocky IV moment and take him, but the smart money would be on Leonidas.

Link Posted: 8/5/2007 3:39:44 PM EDT

Maximus, Leonidas would suddenly go all slow motion and Maximus would hack him to pieces.

I'm sure it's been said many times.

Leonidas

He was trained from a young age to be a warrior. Especially as he was a second born and wasn't expected to be king.

Marcus Aurelius was a philosopher king. I'm sure he knew how to swing a sword but I'm sure he lacked the intense training of King Leonidas.

Shit...RIF...

I'd still pick Leonidas over Maximus Decimus Meridius. One came from a warrior society the other was a soldier. Much like the Arcadians the Spartans met on the road.
Link Posted: 8/5/2007 3:45:22 PM EDT
I'm of Spaniard blood, and they called Maximus the spaniard...so he has my vote

I don't think the thread is about Leonidas fighting the old fart Marcus Aurelius.

Leonidas, because of more training which I think puts him over Maximus.

+1

Probably any Spartan warrior could make short work of Maximus.

Hand to hand, it might go to Maximus...maybe.

Swords, no shield, I'd say 50/50 draw IF the swords were both of the same material (we're talking 500+ years difference here. Leo had Bronze. Max had steel....)

Full uniform - spear, shield, helmet, etc. I'd lean towards Maximus if only because his armor was steel, not bronze. But if both had bronze. Leo would clean up.

Unlike Leo, Max got to be general by surviving untold numbers of battles and moving up the ranks. He wasn't a royal. So I'd think his toughness was on par with Leo's.

Now, 300 Spartans vs. 300 Roman infantry....Spartans by a mile.

300 Spartans vs. Maximus' Legion (about 5000 men), Maximus would have wiped them out on the second volley of flaming clay artillery charges and 3 meter long spears.... which is why the Romans eventually did wipe out the Greek Phalanxes - their field artillery was better at breaking up tight formations and they did a better job at breaking up charges on defense. But still, the Spartans at the gates were the best of the best at that time and for centuries afterwards.

Dude, Maximus was the head of the Felix Legions. He'd spent his entire life as a soldier and warrior, and he was never defeated in man-to-man combat. Also, he was smart enough to wear armor. Leonidas would get his ass handed to him.

Besides, the Romans were LIGHT YEARS ahead of the Spartans when it came to combat. The Romans conquered the known world. The Spartans couldn't even kick the Athenians' asses properly. Comparing a Roman Legionnaire to a Spartan soldier is like comparing a Marine in Iraq today to some guy in the Civil War. Night and day, people.
