I don't really have a favourite out of the two. I think Rick is somewhere in the same ballpark of toughness as Daryl.

In regards to tv show: Definitely a tie between Daryl and Michonne. If they had a child, he/she would singe handedly kill off the rest of the zombies and bring humanity back from the brink.

Guvnor deserves an honorable mention, considering his abilities as a sociopath.(intelligence, charm, manipulative, does not fear walkers, etc.) He also beat up Rick, who beat up Shane....so he beat up Shane vicariously.

Round 1: TV show = Governor, he was insane in the show

Round 2: Comics = Jesus or Rick, Jesus got the moves, but Rick has the determination

Round 3: Telltale game. = Never played it

Round 4: Out of everybody. = Daryl, I mean, he did take out a tank.....

In the comic series, Rick is easily the toughest. He does everything better than his television counterpart, only he does it with one hand and a lot of blood.

#12 Posted by Epitaph (31 posts) - - Show Bio

1. Michonne

2. Rick

3. Lilly (maybe Molly)

4. Comic Rick

@rogueshadow:

Going by the TV show here. I haven't read much of the comics.

Gonna pick out multiple character for each category though.

Endurance :

Survival skills : Daryl, Michonne, Merle

H2h skills: Rick, Governor, Michonne, Shane

Intelligence: Governor, Hershel

Fire-arm proficiency Carl, Rick, Daryl, Shane

Melee combat: Michonne, Tyreese, Merle, Daryl

Mental strength: Hershel, Rick

Walker slaying: Daryl, Michonne

Adaptability: , Daryl, Michonne, Governor, Hershel

Physical prowess [strength, speed, agiilty etc] A fair number of characters could be placed here.

Diplomatic/ Leadership skills Rick (mainly up till season 2) Hershel, Governor.

I had a stab at it. I am sure you could put more characters in other categories and debate as to who should fit into what category etc. I added the leadership skills too.

Thanks for posting this topic. It is alot of fun.

Michonne rounds 1, 2 and 4. She ranks highly in every category you list.

Don't know or care about 3, don't even know what that is tbh.

#17 Edited by mrdecepticonleader (17564 posts) - - Show Bio

Also going by my previous overall it comes down to Daryl and Michonne.

You're welcome :) I agree with a lot of these, I think Merle should be in quite a few more of them though.

I'll put in the top 3 for each category. I haven't read the comics and I don't think the telltale game characters can compete with the TV characters, except for clementine of course but including her would make this all unfair.

Survival skills - Daryl, Morgan Jones (the black guy with the son in ep 1) , Michonne

H2h skills - Rick, The Governor, Shane

Intelligence - Rick, The Governor, Hershel

Fire-arm proficiency - Rick, The Governor, Daryl

Melee combat - Michonne, Merle, Tyrese

Mental strength - if this is asking who the wisest characters are: Dale, Hershel

Walker slaying - Daryl, Michonne, Glen

Adaptability - Daryl, The Governor, Rick

Physical prowess [strength, speed, agiilty etc] - The Governor, Daryl, Rick

Merle would've wrecked the governor if Martinez and that other guy hadn't tap danced on his ribs beforehand. Or it would have at least been a closer fight.

It would have been closer I agree. He might have beaten him too. But Governor went fully psychopath and ripped his fingers off...

I've see it a million times. Shane won the fight really. Not because he's tougher but because Rick wasn't in season 3's beast mode. He wasn't when he fought the Gov either.

I didn't say she wins every category, just she's high in it.

Michonne may not be book smart, but she is very street smart and has probably the best instincts of anyone on the roster in both comic and TV shows, so I'd consider her top 5 at least.

You said Michonne for rounds 1, 2 and 4, meaning she wins. Michonne is academically intelligent she was a lawyer.

#35 Edited by Fallschirmjager (15013 posts) - - Show Bio

@rogueshadow: Yes, she wins every round because she ranks highly in every category, unlike others who may beat her but may not even be present in other lists.

Rick for example? Arguably the best leader but mentally fragile.

get what I'm saying?

I do, I think you've misunderstood my premise. I think Jesus is tougher than her overall, based on all of the categories.

I never said that you said she wins ever category. I said that I disagree that she wins the rounds.

And I dunno. I think think Michonne is tough as nails. Being tortured and getting revenge and whatnot.

It's close I agree, the case can easily be made for Michonne being tougher, she's been around for way longer.
