Who do you think would win? In a fair stand-up fight or even in a prolonged war of attrition tactics?
Let' look at the tale of the tape
Darth Vader is 6' 7" tall. It is pretty easy to imagine that he has a longer reach than Thulsa Doom as he is 6 inches taller. However, I don't think
that he outweighs Doom.
He is a Jedi and Sith Lord and knows the ways of the force. From the books and movies we know that he can throw objects of all sizes around with the
force and he can choke people from a distance. He can also perform impossible feats of acrobatics. He is a heartless killer of whole planets.
Weapon of Choice
: The Lightsaber. Better than a Cimmerian broadsword? Well, it can probably cut it and armor in half if timed correctly. Maybe
even with wild blows. We'll see.
: He seems to be lightly armored. I don't know how it would withstand the crushing power of 8 pounds of steel though. With boots I imagine
he is 7 feet tall or nearly that.
Also, I think it is noteworthy that the people that work for him fear him and probably hate him.
He's 6' 1" in bare feet, but in those crazy boots you know he is coming in at about 6' 4" and I bet he outweighs Vader by at least 20 pounds. Reach
difference is surely negligible.
Thulsa Doom is an evil sorcerer and he seems to come in at least on a par with Vader when it comes to mind control powers. We see him cause people to
leap to their deaths with only a gaze and gesture, while Vader has to resort to, apparently, psychokinetically choking people. How will this fare for
each? I doonn't kno-ow? Doom typically has others fight for him. But we know that the thing he appreciates the most is good steel. So we know he can
fight. It is just that no one can ever get past the eyes to challenge him. Except Conan.
He can also turn in to a Thulsa-sized snake at will. I think this is, if not always practical, at least symbolic of his great power.
Weapon of Choice
: Nearly 9 pounds of Cimmerian steel broadsword. Possibly snake fangs. Not sure.
: Heavy, plate mail armor. Much scarier than Darth Vader's.
The people that work for him all love him. It would be impossible for them to know otherwise. Thus is the power of Thulsa Doom. If Conan had not
gotten to him imagine how far his power may have spread..
So who would win in a fight of any type?
My money is on Thulsa Doom. I think Thulsa would have Vader on his knees begging for mercy inside a few months. Or if a stand-up fight, well,
Luke got Vader to hesitate fatally just by appealing to the dad thing. Do you think that Thulsa Doom would have fallen for that? I don't think so. I
think Vader's mind is weaker than Doom's.
I think Vader would go for the force choke thing expecting to bring Doom to his knees gasping so he can waltz in and slice him up with his
But I actually think that Thulsa would crack Vader's mind and have him weeping like a little girl and then cause him to personally drive an Imperial
Battle cruiser into a nearby sun along with anyone else that Thulsa doesn't like.
I'm partial as you can tell.
Plus, Thulsa can turn in to a big snake. If he can hold his breath long enough to do that then I am guessing he can hold it long enough to close with
Vader while rapidly hypnotizing him with his eyes and then just beat him to death with broadsword. that's what I think.
What do you think?
