Normal Rules, in Hobbiton (Shire) Fighting for the One Ring
Round 1 Books
Round 2 Films
While Bilbo started off quite cowardly and gentle, he became very brave and managed to slay a Warg rider when he protected Thorin, Frodo was a weak and showed no combat skill, i dont know if he even killled anything, Bilbo has the stones for this fight so he takes it!
Bilbo is more the adventurer type than frodo.. He is experienced, and probably a bit more toughened up. Not to mention Bilbo had loads of journeys to write about.Frodo had only one (But maybe more epic). Only thing frodo has over bilbo is that he resisted the ring far better than Bilbo. But that's not going to help him in a battle.. Bilbo both rounds. movie maybe a closer fight..
In their prime?
Frodo pretty much gets trounced throughout the books, in fact, I would argue he has next to zero combat feats other than tanking hits with his mithril chainmail, and getting stomped on by Shelob while Sam saves his sorry but. I think Sam would be a better fight for Bilbo.
Whereas Bilbo was actually thrown into combat and learned to use his weapon. However, he did get clunked in the head during the biggest battle of the book.
