@carter_esque: While I agree with you that Leon killing generally tougher opponents doesn't automatically make him superior to Agent 47, superpowered monsters are still a good indication of his skill level. Over 300,000 citizens of Raccoon City fell to the zombie apocalypse when it was still fresh, but Leon, as a rookie cop on his very first day, took on the entire city after it had already become totally overrun. To give you an idea of how impossible the odds were against him, Leon was one of the 0.004% of Raccoon denizens to survive the incident. Not only that, but he was going up against Lickers, Tyrants, and a giant alligator, while everyone else fell to regular zombies on the city streets. That is a testament to his quickness, both mentally and physically, as well as general talent over everyone else.

You say Leon has only fought mindless monsters and never went against enemies with intelligence - that is completely false. Leon singlehandedly took on an entire army of virally enhanced super soldiers. The Ganado are superior to humans in every conceivable way by miles, and after infiltrating the island of RE4, Leon alone defeated one of the most highly trained special forces groups across the planet (yes the island Ganado were indeed a highly trained army in addition to their physical enhancements. Saddler even implied that he could initiate a hostile takeover of the entire friggin United States of America with them) So in terms of cannon fodder, Leon generally has a much tougher time. However in addition to the grunts, Leon regularly fights against other highly skilled agents, and wins. Guys like Ada, Krauser, and Chris Redfield all have actual FEATS to backup their status as super soldiers. To my knowledge, Agent 47 takes on strictly cannon fodder.

Fights evenly with president Svetlana Belikova, the greatest military instructor of her entire country.

Stalemates Chris Redfield despite being at a physical disadvantage.

Also, in close quarters combat, Leon has a stark advantage against Agent 47. -- How so? Leon is not a better close quarters combatant than 47 is that claim is a fallacy. I do agree that they would probably stalemate each other in H2H combat as I don't see either party having a clear-cut advantage over one another in that department... and that's if the fight is decided in this manner.

That being, he is an expert knife fighter. -- So what? 47 is proficient with all types of weapons including knives..

Enough to fight on even ground with the infamous special forces veteran Jack Krauser, again, despite being at a severe physical disadvantage (Jack Krauser crushed steel in his grasp and moved in a blur)

All these guys have feats of extraordinary skill in addition to their feats of extraordinary physical ability. 47 has never fought someone as good as Ada, Chris, OR Krauser, and he's CERTAINLY never fought someone as good as Leon.

And if this ends up being a shootout instead of fist fight, have no worries, Leon is a 100% certifiable bullet timer. Can the same be said about Agent 47? I think we can both agree that neither of these super soldiers are really going to miss when they shoot each other. They both have more than enough superhuman accuracy to place their bullets right at the other's forehead - the only difference is, Leon has the speed to move out of the way after 47's bullets are fired.

Agent 47 however, doesn't.

The only thing that I took from your case for Leon as an absolute is that Leon is more acrobatic than 47; a fact that I was already cognizant of. However, how will he be able to utilize that athleticism and "slight" advantage in speed while he's hiding behind cover with bullets flying past his head?? I don't think it will bc I thought that the OP intended for this to be a gunfight but whatevs. I'd say that 47 wins pretty handily with point-shooting which basically locks onto the target. Leon's aiming is manual is makes it faulty (unless the person playing him is an expert gamer or a marksman). With this difference alone, 47 could double tap Leon's skull before he could even react. All of that is pretty technical to game-play and probably shouldn't be used in this debate but it is factual info... not speculation.

-agent 47 n Leon see each other

It doesn't matter how many people agent 47 has killed, it doesn't matter how they mutated 47 to be a killing machine, that is just a daily bases for Leon

This is sensible enough to actually agree with bc this is exactly how the battle could play out or vice versa. I still don't see it goin down like this bc of 47's experience advantage but this a much better argument than the "Leon stomps bc he's killed monsters and zombies" debate.

What makes you think 47 has more experience? Even if he does, it's not to such an extent that it will allow him to overcome Leon's advantage in nearly every other category. Leon has been working as the top agent in the entire U.S. Government for over a decade, he's survived the Raccoon City Incident, the Los Illuminados, the Harvardville Outbreak, the Eastern Slav Republic Outbreak, Tall Oaks, and Lanshiang, among many many others, so it's not like he's lacking in the experience department.

And with all that experience against monsters and all the horrors he's faced, he's never gone against a human as skilled or as ruthless as 47. 47 has been utilizing his "particular set of skills" for at least a decade longer than Leon has; this gives him an experience advantage. This advantage is what gives him the edge over Leon.

But since your opinion doesn't have a leg to stand on in this debate, why should it even be acknowledged? Better yet, tell me why 47 doesn't stand a chance? Answer this question first though: Do you know anything about 47 and/or have you played any of the Hitman games (including the most recent one) into completion?

Leon stood toe to toe with Wesker, assisted by 1 person only. Even then Wesker was hard.

47 was designed to kill, whether it be mutants or Brain-dead zombies. He is designed to Kill.

This is 60/40 in 47's favor since its a 1 vs 1. Soldier who has faced fear vs Assassin with no fear.

Again I am asking for feats. You must of ignored my post; as I went over, Leon faced an entire army of "intelligent, efficient killers who actually know what to do with the guns in their hands" in the form of the Plaga enhanced army Saddler employed. They had every bit of intelligence and skill as the average special forces unit; the only difference is, Las Plagas took these attributes and multiplied it by 10. So Leon's cannon fodder>>>47's cannon fodder. However, the difference is, Hitman has only taken on cannon fodder. Leon has faced everything, ranging from hulking 30 tonners, to elite assassins.

WTF are you talkin' bout??? Gameplay mechanics for canon games do count bc they're canonical actions taken (by the gamer) throughout the game. How else could the plot move forward?? By your logic, cutscene feats shouldn't count either which would mean that Leon definitely loses here.

@carter_esque: You complained on the first page about the only Leon argument being that he takes on superpowers, but you yourself have failed to provide an actual argument for 47.

Ada is actually a helluva lot more skilled than 47 based on FEATS, something 47 seems to only have one of, and that's getting ragdolled by Sanchez who isn't even as strong as Leon based on feats.

@_cerberus_: I am not disputing that. I said Leon would win. I'm inquiring as to when he got shot in the chest.

oh no idea lol, but surviving simmons spike spam attack is better than getting shot in the chest with a bullet lol.

I hope you're not referencing Leon taking a bullet to the shoulder in RE2...

47 got shot in the gut.

I am. What's wrong with that? He literally carried on the rest of the game with no hinderance and even killed Mr. X. When did 47 get shot in the gut? IIRC he got shot in Blood Money then passed out (feel free to provide the exact context. I am ignorant of 47, that's the reason I typed out a 5 paragraph post hoping to get a debate started. I only started the whole featless thing when that's what Carter led me to believe)

@_cerberus_: do you not realize I was asking SPECIFICALLY about bullets and not B.O.W. spikes?

@nickzambuto: the shoulder is not the chest. Claiming it was the chest is as accurate as my misleading statement that 47 got shot in the gut. He did, in Contracts, but he nearly died if not for a doctor.

So not only have you never played Hitman, you misled with the "shot-in-the-chest" feat. More negative respect points for you.

I never intended to lie, that was just word choice on my part. I'm typing as fast as I can think so cut me some slack.
