So I'm pretty sure most of you have seen Deadliest Warrior on the Spike channel.

The episode I want to talk about is the episode between Ninja vs. Spartan.

- http://www.spike.com/blog/blood-on-sand-ninja/76628

To my knowledge the show deals mainly with weapons which I think that is the biggest flaw. They take skill in mastering these weapons to the littlestconsideration.

The spoiler is:





















The Spartan won.


If you've seen the 3 minute reenactment they present in this episode about the Ninja vs. the Spartan, I think there were to many mistakes.

- The ninja Keep running away from opportunities where he can strike and kill
(throwing smoke bombs into spartan helmet and eyes)

- The ninja throws the ninja stars at the wrong time
( you would think the ninja would throw the stars when he thinks is the best opportunity)

- The ninja constantly runs from the spartan.

- The battle happens in the day time.

- The Ninja didn't utilize his Kitana enough.

- A ninja would kill the spartan in his sleep.


I think a Ninja would win. 1 vs 1. A spartan is at it's mightiest in a group and Phalanx.

The Spartan's shield is what proved to be the deciding factor in his victory.

He had so many exposed/vulnerable areas on his body. Heavy artillery, his helmet creates blind spots. So many things that were not considered in my opinion tohave caused him to loose.

Sorry if this has been posted already.

Oh and another thing was some of the choices of weapons that the demonstrated. The Spear against a ninja would not work at all.

I have never felt like I wasted my time on anything as much as I did watching this episode.

I agree, but on the setting of the fight it has to be pretty even. The advantage of having the fight at night would go to the ninja, and it has to be a littlebit fair.

But if it were like 3 spartan vs 1 ninja at night woulda been dope.

There is no possible way for them to make skill a factor. Most of these warriors have been extinct for hundreds of years. Beyond that, thesewere all individuals.

I just watched the Shaolin Monk vs Maori Warrior episode.
was vicious.

If the show was called "Natural Born Killer" then yeah I'd say the ninja would win. But they way they set it up is a gladiator fight to thedeath. Any external factors outside of which weapons kill the quickest aren't considered. So while the Ninja had several weapons that oppened upopportunities to land a killing blow they couldn't straight up kill with every weapon which cost them in the mono y mono style of battle.

Some of the match ups are very incongruous. The Spartan Hoplite played a very different role then a ninja. One was a front line, cog in a powerful infantry andand the other was an assassin. The Samurai versus Viking was also wrong. It should have been Samurai versus Knight because that would have been a bettercomparison of European versus Asian weapons since Knights were like the Samurai and were full time, dedicated, professional warriors.

Because of my background in kendo, I have a lot of appreciation for the Katana but they might well have lost against a well trained knight. A knight wastrained in swordsmanship, had heavier armor, an excellent shield and an array of blunt weapons. Also, many people conflate the Samurai of various eras. In theKyoto period the Samurai were great horse borne archers, in the Senguko period they were skilled swordsmen and in the Edo period, they were philosophers andpoets. Those three eras are combined to create a perfect warrior and that perfect warrior never really existed.

We'll never know for sure the outcome but the speculating is very fun.

Saw the episode and this was my exact thought. Ninja's are built to go it alone and would probably have the upper hand one-on-one.

The ending quote of the Polynesian dude was hilarious
.

Dude said (not word for word), "Chinese? Look at them they're small. Computer Progam? Probably made by Chinese too!"

The words aren't exact but he sure had me dying

The ninja would win. Spartan warriors had a code of conduct, albeit ruthless, and honor system. A Ninja is caught to get the job done by any means necessary.Honor does not effect their bottom line. The Ninja would have poisoned the Spartan's food or killed him in his sleep
