I got inspired by Deadliest warrior for this one and I always wanted to see these two go at it.

-Takes place in the Roman Colisseum
-Win only comes through the death of the other opponent
-Warrior only has the weapons at his disposal
-Its just one on one.....so like Leonidas vs Erik the Red

Viking:
-Chain Mail armor with regular leather coverings over it
-Regular battle helmet
-Wood Shield
-Two Spears
--Great Axe

Spartan:
-Standard Bronze battle armor
-Wood sheild coated with bronze(typical Spartan shield)
-Spartan short sword
-Two spears

Is this 300 movie version? cause these guys are stronger then the actual historical versions.

The Spartans will win.  They're too damned organized in battle.  The Vikings are a bit less organized and tactical.

Umm I don't think so because that would make the battle WAY to one-sided, so the historical versions of both.

This is just one on one, no friends to back each other up.

So, you mean it's King Leonidas against Eric the Red ?  If so, Leonidas should still win.

Agreed almost like a tornament, where winners of each bracket advance on....hopefully they'll do that in the new season. Althoug put the newer generation warriors in a different group due to fact they have the unfair advantage of guns.

I dont think so. Personally, (i'm a historian) i dont think King Arthur ever existed. But a Tojan Warrior would be good to see fighting a Buddhist Priest.

Totally true....like the only reason the Pirate beat the Knight is simply because of his guns.....Knight is far more superior in skill

Guns should be on a different showDeadliest Warrior should be about being the deadliest warrior, not having the best shot

I'd rather use historically prooven warriors. like Ramses vs Julius Caesar

 Wow...one sided? You guys are terribly...terribly WRONG! Theres a reason why Vikings were a terror in northern europe for a multitude of centuries! Also, by the way, you'll find the tallest examples of humans on average in Scandinavia, so...Spartans taller, stronger? HAH! Also The Viking vs. Samurai pair up didn't give the Viking's they're historical repertoire of armaments, so basing your opinion on that fight, is also WRONG! Your tried and true Viking would wear either a coat of chainmail or padded leather. Assuming the Spartan is using Copper arms, heh...they'res no way they're gonna get past that armor - but why bother when the Viking has a shield, but unlike the spartan's the Viking shield isn't strapped to the arm, allowing him to maneuver his wooden in a 180 degree arch in front of him, and it's designed to shear and snare blades when they cut into it allowing a Viking to disarm them.  
 
Also, in regards to the 'big, strong, Spartans' how many extremely tall italians do you remember? Sure a Spartan Warrior was a tough, strong, fighter but...Vikigns were traditionally taller, had much thicker bones, and were stronger. The only advantage the Spartan has is his Copper breast plate which could be penetrated be a hand axe.

Really is that why the Persians kicked the Spartan's asses with wicker shields while the Vikings settled parts of russia, brittania, germania, and even parts of italy? Settled, not raiding mind you. Also England should have plenty of Viking blood from when the Great Heathen Army invaded after King Ragnar was betrayed by Northumbrian? nobility. Been a while since I read that particular story.

#27 Edited by Stormdriven (7313 posts) - - Show Bio

@argantyr: There were only 300 Spartans and 100 other Greek warriors at Thermopylae pass, while the Persians had about 5000 troops. The Greeks still managed to kill almost 2/5ths of that army.

people are we forgetting the vikeings are biger stronger and armed with weapons and armor thousands of years into the future ? the forged steel of the Vikeings should cut the bronze like a hot knife thouge butter . more over the vikeings where taught to fight as a man where as the spartains are used to fighting as a unit.

the spartains are skilled but the vikeings edge out every other stat by a vast margen

Edge Vikings

#30 Posted by koshi_waza88 (2226 posts) - - Show Bio

the typical viking is much better armed than a spartan he is from a different age his armor and weapons made of iron or even steel skill seems to be the side of the Greeks trained professional soldiers vs a essentially a adventurer im not talking about feats of there strongest heros just the average viking vs spartan .. also one other things , spartans strength comes form team works and formations like the phalanx

Spartan

#33 Edited by Linestar (189 posts) - - Show Bio

@Lost_Rellik @mr_pie: Spartans are not bigger then vikings, not even close, lol. Vikings were the tallest people in the world of there time. Do research before pulling crap out of your @$$.

Anyway, just to clear that up, the vikings win handily. The axe totally negates the spartans shield (they would actually use the axe head to hook the shield and tear it away from there adversary, and is far more able to cut through a shield then a sword), they have better, stronger, more advanced armor and weapons, and as i stated before, were deff. bigger. Also this is a one v one, no armys, and the spartans were trained to fight together, and were actually terrible at one on one combat, relying more on stealth.

Lol i like how the people who vote for vikings are the only ones also providing proof AND reasoning. Guess that says alot for how screwed the spartan is if they can even make a claim past "300 was a cool movie" (i said "cool", NOT good)
