Fezzik vs. Kronk

Well, yesterday yielded a solid victory for the A-Team. MacGyver had some strong responses, but was just overwhelmed by the sheer numbers, brute strength, and weaponry of the soldiers of fortune. But you MacGyver fans can still cast your vote and make your case. After all, a grudgematch is never fully resolved.

I'll give you yet another topic. Today's grudge pits two lovable brutes caught up in the wrong crowd; both in classic films about royalty. Both displaying a mastery of language, but in different ways. From "The Princess Bride" we have Fezzik, a master of rhyming; from "The Emperor's New Groove" we have Kronk, a master of the languages of the forest.

They're both awesome characters, but one of them's got to be better, right?

Fezzik can't even take on Cary elwes when fighting like civilized people. Kronk, however, may not be smart enough to copy the neck choking technique. I bet that kronks shoulder angel/devil combo, while good help and very smart, will distract him enough to give fezzik a good shot at him. I say fezzik takes it.

Lane, these match ups are just too awesome for words. Both of these characters are large, witty, and working for the bad guys, but still have a big soft spot. You make it difficult, but I have to commit to one.

Something tells me that if push came to shove between these two, neither would get on the others good side. Since we never see Kronk in an all out, head-to-head battle (he only mentions his participation on the wrestling team), I'm going to go with Fezzik. Much more battle hardened, and hairier.

If it were a short-order cooking contest, however, Kronk wins hand down.

Kronk wins. A guy who comes up with his own theme song and talks to squirrels is one to be admired.

Perhaps kronk can get an army of squirrels at his disposal. But can 100 squirrels help take down a giant determined not to go back to being unemployed in greenland?

I'd have to go with Kronk... Fezzik finds it a great feat to rhyme in English. I'm betting Kronk could rhyme in Squirrel without even trying.

Fezzik, definitely! Krnok's center of gravity is high, and Fezzik is just a pure mass.He could just hit Kronk with a rock as he walked around the corner. Plus he also has enough dignity to want to be sportsmanlike. And he IS the BIGGEST and the STRONGEST, even though it's not his fault. He doesn't even exercise.

And I know of Kronk's skills in the kitchen, and in an iron chef battle he might actually win. But lets not completely discount the fact that Fezzik made soup to help nurse Indigo back to health, and lets face it, it looked pretty good, Indigo just dove right in he liked it so much. ;)
