Sauron VS Voldemort: Who would win?

Saturday, March 5, 2011

Yesterday, on book blogging hop day, Jennifer from Crazy-for-Books asked about our all-time favorite villains. I chose Sauron as my pick, and when I went around to see who others were picking, I noticed that a lot of people thought the same way - and with good reason ;) I also noticed though that Voldemort was quite a popular choice as well. So being the nerd that I am I started thinking a lot about these two villains; who would win if they fought?

You all know I love my Harry Potter series, but I have to give this to Sauron.

Sauron to me is just the quintessential villain in the fantasy genre. He is not just evil. He is the definition of evil. Let's not forget that he is after all a maiar, which would make him a god in a humanoid form. He could probably kill Voldemort just by staring at him. I know though that Voldemort is a very, very powerful wizard. He also has a lot of followers to help him out. However, he is still technically just a man who simply got lucky and achieved immortality.

I also think that Voldemort is way too confident with himself. He underestimates his enemies' powers, and acts on impulse, without really thinking of what he's doing. I feel like Sauron's smarter. He's mysteriously so, and you could tell he plans his battles very carefully. He wouldn't even try thinking of attacking Voldemort without making sure his Horcruxes aren't destroyed yet.

Considering Sauron hasn't found these Horcruxes yet, then Voldemort might have a chance. It's pretty low, but he might be able to throw an Avada Kedavra in there when Sauron's not looking or something. But, and this is a very big but, can an Avada Kedavra spell kill a demi-god? Probably not ;)

Who do you think would win?

  3. Yeah, Sauron is more powerful than Voldemort. He is evil incarnate but I always considered Sarumen more villainous in LoTR..

  8. Sauron ofcourse no magic can harm him when he wields the ring and he would simply send an army to capture voldemort and bring him to Barad-dur where all powers except that of Saurons own making is queled so their Voldemort would die as easily as a little girl or Sauron would give Voldemort a ring which would enslave him to Saurons will.

  9. I'm gonna have to disagree with all of you on this one and say Voldemort's got this. Sauron has one soul container, Voldemort has 7. And Voldemort has more at his disposal than the Avada Kedavra curse too. He's a master all-around duelist, much quicker than Sauron, and at least as powerful. Not to mention Voldemort himself is extremely intelligent, if a little unhinged mentally.

  10. I think Sauron would decieve Voldemort into becoming his puppet, rather than kill him outright.

  11. I do agree.. And i think that Sauron will send 5 nazgul to find the horcruxes because he's not that stupid to find the horcruxes by himself.
