Yoda is not stupid to go against that much alone .. With prep, Yoda goes back to Dagobah..

And I don't exactly know how a lightsaber would fare against a Nazgul or a Balrog.. If it's enchanted (LotR-wise) then it should easily cut (and an easy win for SW but not against staggering numbers), else it'll probably just pass through (IMO)..

Odd, Lightsabers aren't swords. Show me a Lightsaber failing against a Balrog.

And what's stopping Yoda from speedbitzing the Nazgul, going at speeds faster then the Balrog or the Witch King can percieve and slicing the Balrog into bite size pieces? And then slicing at the Witch King's head then going on to a meduim-long with the Army. In no way this is a stomp, and neither am I saying Yoda wins. Because in some cases the Army can win, the Witch King's scream could be effective but Yoda is a master telepath and is resistant to most Dark Side taunts/powers.

@King@Kingjohnrocks: First, Nazgul cannot be killed, and before you say "But the witch king was killed!" He was stabbed by a sword that had enchantments deadly to him, enchantments that a lightsaber does not possess. And the Balrog is a Maia, basicly a demigod in The Lord of the Rings universe, as far as we know, only another Maia can go toe to toe with a Balrog. Plus you forgot to mention which Balrog is this? Is it Durin's Bane the one Gandalf slew? Or is it Gothmog?

Source?

"But the witch king was killed!" He was stabbed by a sword that had enchantments deadly to him, enchantments that a lightsaber does not possess

Show me the Witch King surviving something like a Lightsaber., Nothing is stopping Yoda from slicing his head off, using force light, telekentically owning him. Yoda is much much faster then the Witch King, he has moved in a blur, fought so fast that he generated afterimages, reacted to Palpatine's attacks, avoided multiple members of the Jedi High Council unarmed and simply by jumping around,etc.

And the Balrog is a Maia, basicly a demigod in The Lord of the Rings universe

Yet there's no indication that Yoda couldn't slice up Durin's Bane or hurl him into a wall, slam him repeatedly, toss him across the sky, etc.

, as far as we know, only another Maia can go toe to toe with a Balrog

Source please?

Plus you forgot to mention which Balrog is this? Is it Durin's Bane the one Gandalf slew? Or is it Gothmog?

Durin's bane. But Yoda would win against both anyway.

I mean, Gothmog died because he fell into a river, Yoda knows how to alter the enviorment and could create rain from clouds if he wanted to.

@Kingjohnrocks: As we know, Tolkien was vague when it came to things like this, all we know is that Maia are beyond mortal beings. Plus Balrogs can shield themselves in flame, making it tough for Yoda to get close, I could see him using the force on him though. The Nazgul are bound to Sauron through the nine rings he gifted to them, if you want the Nazgul to die, you'd have to take it up with Sauron, and as much as I like Yoda, I HIGHLY doubt he could defeat Sauron.

If he didn't have the ring, Yoda could beat Sauron.

How will the Balrog even be able to see Yoda/react to him? Yoda moves at speeds faster then the Balrog can percieve and can slice them up while moving in a blur.

Yoda can also use Alter Enviorment to dispell the Flames.

This still doesn't disprove the fact that Yoda can speedblitz all the Nazgul before they can react.

#25 Posted by Inphase (336 posts) - - Show Bio

Can Yoda even use Alter Environment? Never seen him use it, unless you have proof. And If I'm not mistaken, that power uses the Force energy of the thing its being used on. The Balrog has no Force energy, so it wouldn't work. And like I said before the nazgul can't die, they will outlast until he is killed or flees.

#26 Posted by Kellar21 (444 posts) - - Show Bio

It's on you the weight of proving.

It's you who are saying it works on them.It probaly won't because ligthsbers aren't magical and lack the necessary enchatments to hurt the Nazgul(which are Undead and non corporeal).Let alone the Witch King.

Nothing is stopping Yoda from slicing his head off

Except the fact that he doesn't have one.

Gothmog died because f***** Etchellion rammed him in the chest with this helmet(after getting both his arms cut off).And the river was way,way down.

Show me proof that normal physical attacks work on a Balrog(the ones made by the swords of elven-lords do not count because their swords are magical).It was said that normal(physical) weapons are useless against it because he was made of fire and shadow.

Lightsabers are heated plasma blades,which burn and cut,and guess what's the Balrog made of,oh yes,FIRE!!

Now normal soldiers(orcs,trolls,uruks) are going to get stomped.

So even if the Nazgul can't hit Yoda his lightsaber will just pass through them(there's nothing under the robes).So it's a stalemate.

What? Where does it say Yoda needs FORCE energy to alter the enviorment? And yes he can use it:

Alter Environment allows a Force sensitive to influence the weather.

It is possible Yoda displayed this ability when he controlled the air in a hangar bay to remain inside.

Explosive decompression sucked all the air out of the docking bay, plucking chairs, papers, tools, small craft, and most importantly the four assassin droids, and flinging them into the black vault of space. The howling wind nearly jerked Chuff out of the lift tube to follow them, but Master Yoda's hand held him back. A pocket of air remained in the lift, held there by Yoda's will.

@Kingjohnrocks: Thats just something I vaguely remember about it, I should probably look it up. I still think Yoda would eventually be defeated by the Nazgul, no matter how long it took. His lightsaber would not effect them. And if he tried to stab the Witch King, it would disintegrate into dust.

Look I am very stumped on who wins in a Yoda vs Witch King battle, I am willing to make another thread to debate about it on here because I just don't know.

But if Yoda can strike at speeds the Nazul can't percieve and faster then they can see, how do they kill him? He can be untouchable.

@Chaos Prime said:

The prophecy is not an immunity, it's just destiny. And it does not refer to gender, but rather, species. The following is a repost of something I wrote in a different thread.

"The Witch King was not killed by a mortal woman. Eowyn is a Man. Man is not a gender in LOTRs, it is a species. There are male Men and female Men. The movie heavily changes this scene because Peter Jackson misinterpreted it. The Witch King was not killed by Eowyn, he was killed by Merry.

In the Fellowship of the Ring when the Hobbits were saved from a Barrow Wight by Tom Bombadil, there was treasure in the Barrow that Tom handed out. Specifically, he gave each of the Hobbits a dagger. These daggers were not normal, they were blades of Westernesse. These blades were made during a time when Arnor was at war with Angmar. The Witch King is the King of Angmar. Because of this, all blades of Westernesse were given a special enchantment designed to kill the Witch King instantly should one ever cut him.

When Merry and Eowyn fought the Witch King, Merry was still armed with his blade of Westernesse, a relic from a past age that the Witch King was sure did not exist anymore. The way things actually played out in the books is that Eowyn had the attention of the Witch King, while Merry was on the ground in pain from his dread aura. When the Witch King walked past Merry though, Merry attacked him, and stabbed him in the foot. This killed the Witch King instantly. Eowyn didn't realize he was already dead, so as the Witch King fell she saw the gap in his defenses and stabbed him through the visor.

This is why, during a later scene in the weeks leading up to the Battle at the Black Gate, Eowyn is complaining to Aragorn that she has gotten no glory during this war. The prophecy that the Witch King would not be killed by a Man referred to the species, because he was destined to be killed by a Hobbit."

Plain water will not work.. The Balrog Gandalf fought got submerged in water but didn't die, instead became more of a slime monster just not portrayed in the films..

Mind you, the reasons I see Yoda losing are tiring and the inherent incapability of destroying the Balrog or Nazgul.. Different worlds, different mechanics and LotR is just vague on power and magic stuff..

Then he looked for his sword that he had let fall; for even as he struck his blow, his arm was numbed, and now he could only use his left hand. And behold! there lay his weapon, but the blade was smoking like a dry branch that has been thrust in a fire; and as he watched it, it writhed and withered and was consumed."

Alright but these are different universes, we MUST make an exception. A lightsaber is not your standard LOTR sword. As I said I am still stumped on if Yoda can defeat the Witch King. But Gandalf the White serverely outclasses the Witch KIng, while Yoda would stomp Gandalf the White through speedblitz. Once again I am stumped on this battle, that is all I can say.

@Kingjohnrocks: Yeah that would be kind of unfair to take away the saber. But it still would be destroyed, its just as much a physical weapon as a sword, just much more advanced. BUT, Yoda would NOT stomp Gandalf the White. And just because you're saying that Yoda can beat Gandalf, doesn't mean he can beat the Witch King, fights don't work like that.
