Kelhus vs ... posted 14 Jan 2007, 01:01 by coobek, Candidate

Kelhus vs Satan Who would win? Elaborate. I bet 9-1 for Kelhus since the other one is driven by emotions (kind of). I know it is a shallow thread. But hey, some things in life need to be. view post


posted 17 Jan 2007, 06:01 by TheDarkness, Peralogue

I would go with satan on this one, but would it be one on one or would satan get to use the hosts of hell, because in that case he would def win. A one on one battle would be a little closer, but satan is the post powerful angel and the greatest deceiver greater even than the dunyain. His powers of deception would far outsrip that of hte WP who would surely be lost for what the Truth really is. view post

Cmon on guys. Really... Kellhus vs. Satan? Satan is the most powerful being second to God in all creation (if you believe the mythology). Even if Kellhus could kill him only his earthly avatar would be destroyed and he would still be in hell. Let's not forget the fact that Satan has an army, of demon's at his command as well. How about Kellhus vs. Elminster, Mordenkainen, or maybe Thoth-Amon? Now these are serious sorceres in there respective world's, and they are all mortal. Or magic free fight how about against Drizzt? I await further discussion. view post

Kellhus vs Drizzt? Well as Drizzt shows off his fancy sword work Kellhus would show off his inards. Drizzt as a character would not stand a chance. view post

Cmon... You don't think Drizzt, a drow swordmaster, wouldn't stand a chance? :roll: I understand that in a literary sense, Bakker is far more mature than Salvatore, and as such his characters and his world, appear much more brutal. But if you transplant either one to the others' world, than I think you get a better picture of just how powerful Drizzt would be in a straight up sword vs. scimitars fight. I mean he has almost a hundred more years of experience. I'm not saying that he would win, but he has a fighting chance. view post

I think you must be forgetting Kellhus' fight with Mekeritrig, who has thousands of years of swordfighting experience under his belt and was nearly defeated by Kellhus until he employed his magic so Drizzt wouldn't have much of a chance. view post

You are right... I did forget. You guys, :? can't you remember what it was like reading The Dark Elf Trilogy for the first time, or Icewind Dale, or any of the Drizzt adventures? I know that for most it's been awhile. I think maybe your passions are inflamed from your current literary adventures. If you guys won't even give Drizzt the slayer of Errtu, the slayer of Iceingdeath and countless others a chance against Kellhus, than who do you think would? view post


posted 01 Feb 2007, 20:02 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

You ask who would stand a chance against Kellhus, Im sure there are more than a few Dunyain who would come close, as well as many many characters from the Dune series such as Duncan Idaho or Muad'Dib or his various children. I know Kellhus isnt invincible Im just saying that from what we have seen of Drizzt he would not be able to handle Kellhus' supreme intellect. view post


posted 01 Feb 2007, 21:02 by Whiskeyjack, Candidate

Good call on the Dune characters. I haven't thought of them for awhile. But, no one has tackled the issue of Kellhus' ability as a spell-caster. Obviously he is an excellent swordsman, but that is only one aspect of his power. If anyone reads Steven Erickson, they would obviously pick Quickben as a suitable trial for Kellhus. view post


posted 01 Feb 2007, 22:02 by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

Well we could tackle the issue of Kellhus' ability as a caster but you would have to take into mind that the metaphysics of the sorcery and the metaphysics of other novels are quite different, but if we were to take in to mind both sorcery and magic their would be much less few who could actually defeat or come close to defeating Kellhus. view post

Kellhus vs. Greatjon Umber (ASOIAF) Now I know that Greatjon can't do magic, and he isn't this super-freak. But here's how I think the battle would go down. Greatjon raises his huge axe, Kellhus streaks in and easily disembowels him. Greatjon calls him a whore and smashes Kellhus in the head with the axe, drinks a beer, and dies. view post

Still no contest of course, but how about Kellhus versus Tyrion? The little bugger is certainly smart, and he hasn't got much of a face left for Kellhus to read. If Kellhus turned up in Westeros, in defiance of all probability and copyright, the big thrill would be Kellhus showing just how dangerous those lumpen knights actually were. (We've already had a bit of an example there with Syrio and the Faceless Men.) view post

The only person that could probably defeat Kellhus, is someone from the Dune series, whether it be the Bene Gesserit, a mentat, Paul Muad'Dib, or one of his various descendants, in a universe where manipulation is everyone's game and nearly everyone is a super genius he would be doomed view post

Kellhus vs Uther Doul. Now that is a match-up that is by no means one-sided. I tend to think that Uther would have the edge, cuz Kellhus has been shown to be occasionally fallible. @ Kellhus vs Satan -> Kellhus would probly whip out the old Douglas Adams' secret weapon and disprove Satan's existence, causing him to disappear in a puff of logos. view post

I was going to say Batman, but again Batman has all the insecurities of parental abandonment and the whole dress up as a bat and beat up criminals thing, so Kellhus could work with that pretty easily. I was also thinking Gandalf could square of against Kellhus pretty easily. I think I read somewhere that he's like an angel or something, so that could make him immune to Kellhus' Dunyain manipulation. Scary thought, what would Kellhus do with the Ring? :shock: Would he be ammune to it's evilness or would he go for it and become Supreme Lord of Middle-Earth. view post

Kellhus vs Lanik Mueller posted 19 Jan 2008, 22:01 by theCarrock, Commoner

Took me awhile to think up this one, but when I saw the subject here I just had to come up with my own champion. Refering to Lanik Mueller towards the end of the book 'A Planet Called Treason' by Orson Scott Card. Odds are no one has any idea who or what I'm talking about. So read the freaking book. It's worth it. I think this would be a good match up and it's kind of a toss up on how their various powers and abilities would match up. I would have to pick Lanik. view post

I woke up in the middle of the night and came up with: Kellhus vs Karsa Orlong (Steven Erikson). He is big, he is a badass, and is pissed off that the Chained God is trying to manipulate him, so maybe he would be immune to Kellhus. Then I remembered that he doesn't have any sorcery, but maybe being Knight in High House of Chains would confer some sorcerous immunity. Kellhus vs Anomander Rake. Thousands of years old, sorcerous ability, Knight of High House Dark, and has a sword that he knows how to use, and that traps your soul forever. If Kellhus got too close, he could probably use a warren to come out behind him... view post

The fact that he has the weirding way, the great control (with Voice) and can see into the future(s) just about counteract the dunyain conditioning, analysis and mandate sorcery in my book. Even if the other people in the Dune series were able to resist his manipulation, he'd tear them to pieces with sorcery before they got close. I suppose a Bene Gesserit mother who also possessed the great control might stand a bit of a chance though. I actually can't think of anyone else I'd send against Kellhus - the whole sorcery being a violation of reality kinda suggests to me that even gods/spirits etc wouldn't stand too much of a chance given Kellhus can adjust to read intention in the smallest of actions (even if some could keep emotion off their face, simple physical action and patterns of behaviour tell him bags), is an absolute master swordsman because he doesn't rely on skill but placing himself in the correct moment (kinda an advanced form of the void from WoT), as well as his ridiculously powerful sorcery. I'd place something close to even odds if he was jumped, though - by an Aes Sedai/Ashaman who wasted no time for example... view post

If you are going to pit Kellhus against anyone in the Dune Universe it would have to be Leto II the God-Emperor. He would be totally immune to Kellhus' manipulations and has more than enough intellect to match him otherwise. As far as fighting ability, pre-worm, he has Prana-Bindu training. As well as the Voice, so it would be more likely he could impel Kellhus to do what he wanted not the other way around. After the transformation, his body is near impervious. Only point blank range with a lasgun would even damage him. Of course there is his oracular vision which would allow him to predict pretty much anything Kellhus could even do. Not to mention that he is also a mentat. So Leto hands down. view post

posted 30 Jan 2008, 20:01 by dirk69er, Candidate

It would not matter what ground they fought on. Leto is master of past, present and future. His oracular vision is near infallible, the only reason he died is because he ALLOWED himself to die. I would love to see Kellhus fight him in his worm body with a sword. That would be laughable. Besides you don't live for 3000 years and not become the most inimidating figure in the universe. One other thing in Leto's favour, Other Memory. Even if Kellhus presented something that Leto could not comprehend (not likely) Other Memory would definately have the answer. In this case Kellhus is overmatched. Leto is not the Kwisatz Haderach for nothing. Ironically the Logos is the 'Shortest Path' and Kwisatz Haderach means 'Shortening of the Way' go figure. That is my take, what reason do you have for thinking that the ground, conditioned or not, would have any effect on the out come? Please not I am not trying to be confrontational. It is always interesting to hear other people's opnions. Thank you!! view post

Kellhus' abilities scale with emotions...thats why he had no hold over conphas, who felt nothing (among other reasons) and was emotionally dead. ergo; the one to defeat Kellhus would have to be an anti-hero or villain as well, one who doesn't feel. problem is, there aren't many of those in any kind of lit. plus said anasurimbor-killer would need some way to defeat kellhus in combat, or prevent kellhus from martially attacking him. i'm drawing a blank though. any suggestions?

yoda is small sized, and so is thus harder to hit. plus, kellhus has that huge greatsword, even if he was fast, i doubt he'd be as fast as yoda was animated...keep in mind yoda was OLD then. yoda in his latter years would surely have an utter mastery of the force, combined with a fairly youthful vigor. Kellhus could maybe take him in combat, but he coult not manipulate him. pluws, we're forgetting that the force can control weak minds; the difference between what the force does and what kellhus does it like the tide to a tidal wave. One edges back and forth, inevitably teasing out a final result, whereas the other is a one-time effect that forces it's results. While what kellhus does is more subtle, i have my money on Yoda. although kellhus could easily just manipulate the weak minded and use them to overpower with number, the tiny green jedi. view post

Although if said pointy sword penetrated to the brain then even Oracular vision might not be so useful... It'd probably come down to whether the Logos's ability to determine the best course for action given what's gone before could trump oracular prediction, or if the oracular sight can work as efficiently as the Logos - certainly for Paul Maud Dib it wasn't the super weapon it's being made out as, and if Kellhus is fast enough and the logos is useful enough then all possible futures might lead to death... view post

Khellus V Satan Satan wins. Khellus doesn't get a chance to psychoanalyse him as Satan uses his Hell powers to blast him into oblivion. Khellus V God God wins. Khellus tries to psychoanalyse him, God responds with an even better psychoanalysis, pointing out the fact that Khellus is as blind and as much a slave to the Darkness that Comes Before as the people he manipulates. Khellus ends up crying like a baby when he realises that he does in fact love Esmi and is simply repeating the dumb nonsense that the priests beat into him. He slowly understands that he is not as intelligent as he thinks he is, because he has bended the Dunyain beliefs to fit what he has found, and by Dunyain logic, if a belief can be changed or bent, then it must be a matter of where you stand, you stand there because you repeat what comes before, and if you repeat what comes before, you are a slave to the Darkness. God wins, but not before giving Khellus the finger. ...Actually, considering Ray Wise's version of the Devil on Reaper, the above might count for Satan as well. Khellus V Jesus Jesus wins. He does so by touching Khellus on the forehead, and making Khellus understand what it feels like to be truly and utterly happy. Honestly, superpowers aside, I fail to see why people think Khellus is so awesome. How is being a psychopath an admirable trait? Now for a good un... Khellus V Karsa Orlong? view post

I asked the Karsa Orlong question back in Feb. I'd have to go with Karsa. He is a lot like Cnaiur but not so introspecitive as he doesn't give a fig what you think about him. Besides, he is ascended now, isn't he (I haven't read the most recent book yet)? view post

Karsa Orlong? I don't think so. It's a question of first being able to defeat Kellhus' ability to inhabit the spaces of opportunity; like trying to gamble against someone with loaded dice. Then you got the gnosis to deal with on top of that. Karsa just hits hard and soaks up punishment (and talks like a tool), Cnaiur and Karsa in Cell block H together would be a good match, maybe Karsa would get the top bunk - but I think Cnaiur would be the daddy... view post

Kellhus vs. AFRO SAMURAI! :D Afro Samurai hands down. Kellhus is cool but Afro is voiced by Samuel L. Jackson. Case closed. view post
