Darth Vader vs. The Lich King by BrokenTeapot Darth Vader vs. The Lich King by BrokenTeapot
This was commissioned by *Deviant-Man, and he wanted me to draw the Lich King from World of Warcraft, fighting Darth Vader from a movie series that nearly everyone is familiar with. I personally wanted to avoid drawing Vader from the back, but every other position I drew just looked silly and out of place. ^^;

Fight starts, Vader chokes LK, LK cannot respond(if you have ever been choked by a piece of food you know you cannot do much more than choke.) LK dies, Vader wins.

You compare dog fighting to straight fighter, I doubt that the force can do a whole lot to a machine but it can do wonders to the body, giving Vader a massive advantage in mobility.

With a lack of the force itself, I do not think LK can do much to resist it. "You will kill yourself now." "Yes Lord Vader."

LK might have a bunch of fancy prancy powers, but Im sure they take time to focus, choke, push, all those lovely basics can be done in the blink of an eye. GG LK, you lose.

This isn't a fair comparison. I love SW too, but Vader isn't even close to the same league as the Lich King. A lightsaber would NOT be able to cut through Frostmourne. The only thing that shattered Frostmourne was quite literally divine intervention, dues ex machina style. It is a safe bet to assume Frostmourne is at least as safe from a lightsaber as Beskar Metal, a type of metal in Star Wars that lightsabers have NEVER been able to cut (it is used in Mandalorian Amor and some sword). The Lich King can instantly kill anything in sight, especially a mortal man like Vader. Assuming Vader got to the Lich King, and the Lich King didn't feel like using his godlike powers, a sword fight wouldn't end well for Vader. Even if he proved superior, he could not damage the Lich King, nor could he tire him out (he's Undead...). Vader would tire, get nicked once, and that would be the end of it. His soul would be devoured by Frostmourne, and the Lich King would raise him as a puppet.

Comparing Vader and the Lich King is like comparing Santa Klaus to the Judeo-Christian god, respectively.

Vader also happens to be Force Jesus. He literally is a demigod. He was born with divine blood in his veins, forcing Obi-Wan of all people to relapse to the "it's over 9000" meme. Vader's immense strength in the Force means he could snap Frostmourne in half with his brain. Not to mention the suit grants him superhuman strength and protection, to the point that a nuclear grenade exploding in his face did nothing.

He'd lift Arthas into the sky, then make his armor cave in him like the way the Witch King of Angamar was when Aegwynn stabbed him in the face. Vader can do that with his mind. And Arthas' undead minions and dark magic won't do jack shit since the Force allows Vader to be immune to magic and a Force blast could literally wipe out the undead like it did the Wookiees in The Force Unleashed.

Also, even Mandalorian armor can't stand repeated lightsaber barrages. The Mandalorian Wars were proof of that. Entire armies covered head to toe with Beskar, and a bunch of renegade Jedi bring them to their knees. Frostmourne's power stems not from its composition, but its ability to steal souls and its dark magic. But a lightsaber levels the playing field. Vader's armor is safe from anything but another lightsaber. Arthas' armor isn't safe from solid metal, let alone a blade of energy.

Vader would eviscerate him.

Time travel doesn't work against the Force because the Force prevents changes to the past.

I'm sure Vader can crush some machine with his mind.

The Force grants a Jedi master immunity to magic, as well as the ability to create telekinetic blasts that clear entire forests. Having played WCIII, KelThuzad and AnubArak's weaknesses are known to me.

You also forget the fact that he's been in that suit for twenty years. It limited his mobility.......during the first few weeks. Then he got used to it, and suddenly he was faster than any Jedi. His first duel in the suit was a haphazard tragedy, with the Jedi he was fighting making circular and graceful movements, while he was making stiff slashes that even a Padawan could dodge. But he still killed her with brute strength. Then he trained with the suit, and proceeded to kill five Jedi the next time he went to battle, despite them being just as fast as the one he killed before. Not only was he faster, but his Force sense was such that he could guess their moves in advance and knock away their sabers with sheer force. Read Dark Lord: Rise of Darth Vader.

Vader also has the power of the Force, which allows him to float, throw his lightsaber, crush things into a pulp with his mind, and even use the Force to increase his speed. Vader came into the suit like a quadriplegic struggling to even walk, but by the time he got used to it, he could literally Jump high and punch through like the Bionic Man. Battlefront II shows this in spades, with the Dark Lord being able to levitate, and use the force to spring across the battlefield like a flying car.

Kel Thuzad is weak up close, and AnubArak's massive size makes him a big target. The Dark Lord would use the Force to power through Thuzad's spells, then rip him in half. Then he'd use the Force to pull Anub'Arak's lower and upper halves apart, or considering that Arak has no magic weapons, just chop off his claws then chop off his head and slice his carcass in half. Then he'd duel Arthas and knock Frostmourne off his hands then decapitate him.

Hell, if you're bringing in flunkies, then say hello to Lumiya and Starkiller. Lumiya is a female Sith who plotted with Vader to kill the emperor, and aside from shooting energy out of her hands, is also fully bionic like Vader, and uses a Sith Energy whip that uses a coil of cortosis with a energy whip complimenting it, allowing her to disarm Arthas before rending him to shreds. She became the new Dark Lord of the Sith, and even brings down the revived Emperor Palpatine by using one of HER apprentices, an ambitious Dark Side super soldier in the royal guard named Carnor Jax.

And Starkiller? Bitch pulled down a mile long Imperial Star Destroyer from the sky. Bitch kills Rancors for a living by frying their eyes with his lightsaber and them frying their hides with ridiculous amounts of Force Lightning. Bitch takes down giant walkers single-handedly, then slices them in two or crushes them into a cube with his brain.

Not to mention a plethora of forces that complement regular Stormtroopers. Aside from hiring Fett now and then, Vader's own ship has shadow Stormtroopers, which, like the night elves, can appear and disappear with hit and run attacks, but unlike the night elves don't need the moon for that and carry guns that low giant flaming holes in people. And there's even the Dark Troopers, which are huge androids designed to kill Jedi. The only way the rebels beat both is with sniper-rifle-toting guerrillas.

Vader could snap the Lich King's bones with his mind. Or toss him off the cliff. Or crush his arm. All with the Force.

He doesn't even need a lightsaber.

The Lich King would just raise an army of the living dead right out from under Vader's slow, mechanical feet and overwhelm him. Sure, Vader would use some sort of Force trick to wipe 'em all out in moments, but that would give the Lich King more than enough time to deliver a final, devastating blow.

A final devastating blow.....which would be deflectèd with a lightsaber.
And to a Jedi, zombies are as effective as trees. I've played WCIII and seen how useful the raise dead thing is AGAINST MORTALS. Vader would just use Force repulse to knock them all off, and the ensuing blast would disintegrate the rotting masses of flesh and bone.

Also, what if there are no corpses around?

He'd just blast it away with Force Repulse. I'd like to see the Lich King try to wrest free of a powerful telekinetic hand that he can't even cleave.

Many of Vader's Force-based powers wouldn't even work on the Lich King, such as the Force Choke due to the Lich King's lack of breathing in the first place. Stabbing him with a lightsaber wouldn't do squat either (though chopping him down in half would do a lot). And Frostmourne? Well, let's see Vader get around that.

:iconvader999:
Vader999 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2013
Chop off is arm. Or use telekinesis to cave in his arms. Frostmourne is still made of steel, and magic steel would still need cortosis to stand up to a lightsaber.

If Vader strikes at it with is saber, it'd get destroyed. And all the souls whom Arthas imprisoned would be free. And then Vder would chop him in half VERTICALLY.

I gatta go with Vader because if Vader used his hatred when the fight is happening, Vader brute force would most likely wear out if not defeat the lich king. Plus the light saber Vader uses has a rare type of focusing crystal... meaning that it its self is a different type of plasma therefore it can and will cut through frostmourne.

indeed. Thousands or creatures (a majority of them being steriotypical gamers) have killed the lichking while only one guy has killed vader, a crazed, old man with an incredibly wrinkled face (the late emperor palpertine) thought the act of eletrocution. Then again, the darth killed that man before the eletrocution killed him.
