      No Drago from Dragonheart and "Mordred" from Beowulf? The latter being the only fantasy movie* dragon who can match Smaug's size and intelligence and have a wild card in his pocket.

      *I've said movie. Take you argument to Void Dragon of Mars.

    Just remember, in GoT, dragons dont stop growing. Give Drogon a hundred years, and he is unstoppable. Also, we watched as Vicey destroyed an ice wall much larger than your example (in height and thickness) in a matter of seconds, and he was an ICE dragon. Drogon was bigger and stronger and his breathe was at LEAST as powerful, if not more. Methinks the comparison is a bit off, though I fully expected Smaug to win at Drogon's current age. And Drogon IS intelligent, just not as much so as Smaug.

  • Nassim Nader
    Nassim Nader 2 days ago

    i would like to argue that despite them being called dragons they are infact technically wyverns. the reason is dragons are quadrupeds (have for legs) and have 2 wings, where as wyverns have two hind legs and 2 wings that have arms connected to them ( like a bat ) which people always call dragons, and are what in most tv shows movies and video games are shown as dragons. If you wanna have dragons in your work of fiction at least represent it properly, its like calling a dyrewolf a werewolf, or a goblin a gremlin, while they share similar characteristics, they are not the same thing.

    Would they really be flying at their fastest when hovering above targets they are trying to burn though?
    I think they would slow down their flights at that point, to both increase their aim and focus on their flame throwers.

    It's quite understandable that Harry Potter dragons are last since 1. They're not Smaug; and 2. Most dragons had already died out and it's illegal to keep them as pets or whatnot, only capable handlers are allowed.

    I think its time to add King Ghidorah to the competition. Would even Smoug bow before the king?

  • Arday60

    This may be limited to dragons that have turned up on screen but it's probably worth pointing out that Smaug is not even close to the OG Middle Earth dragon, Ancalagon the black in size and power.

  • tirendir
    tirendir 3 days ago +1

    Easy, Smaug shook the area, and his movements could be felt from miles and miles away.. neither of the other two had anything remotely of that caliber to compare. It was never really a contest.. Ancient dragons > not ancient dragons in every comparison of fantasy genres. Smaug was ancient, ez game. XD

    This is missing King Ghidorah, who would take all 3 of them at the same time. However, for the 3 they used, I totally agree.

    This is so stupid!!!! 😂😂
    It's like, bi**h slapping Science with Science itself.
    1. You cannot calculate the distance, the fire power, and their strength with just mere digital clips.
    Because these digital clips themselves are manipulated, biased, and enhanced.
    Factors such as, Frame rate, rendering, digital technologies etc., used in producing those movies will never allow one to conduct any scientific measurement.
    What colour-measurement are you talking about? Cuz, different colour profiles will give different colours. I don't know what monitor you used to measure these so called colours?! 🌚 Heck, i could bump the red in some clips and make the fire look pretty hot to manipulate my finding.
    In short, you CANNOT just jabber, or throw big formulas and equations at the audience...hoping they'll fall for it. Cuz, some of us are still intelligent enough to consider this a total BS! 🌚

    • Kitty S

      @Bradley White Oh yeah? Is that why they threw those big formulas on the screen? Only Americans can produce such stupid content, cuz they know Americans will fall for it. That's how bad their education system is.

    Seriously? Smaug could eat any of those other dragons in a single bite.
    Not to mention he is literally the reason why any of those other dragons even exist, as Smaug set the literary precedent for dragons being gigantic engines of destruction instead of alligator-sized lizards.

    nexus169 6 days ago

    I think Smaug would eat the GOT dragons, but Predaking, (Transformers Prime) could blast Smaug into bite-sized dragon chunks... he's picked up a chunk of rock bigger than Smaug, (that was dropped on him) and used it to B-slap Ultra Magnus, and Wheeljack.... plus, he's got well as dragon flame.

    First of all, Game of Thrones uses WYVERNS not dragons.
    In Middle Earth, Dragons were created by Morgoth. Ancalagon the black is unmatched by any of the wyverns in GoT. Not even the combined might of Rhaegal, Drogon and Viserion would be enough to take him down. They wouldn’t even outmatch Smaug. You know why? One key thing that is left out every time a GOT “dragon” V LoTR dragon discussion starts is the fact that you need a BLACK ARROW to even pose a threat and there are no guarantees that you’ll even kill it. What do you need to kill a GoT dragon? A spear and elbow grease. Stop trying to make GOT seem worthy of comparison. Not even The Inheritance Cycle deserves that dishonor.

  • masterpainter78
    masterpainter78 6 days ago

    Actually the GOT dragon is the fastest simple he can just plot hole the distance rather than actually fly. Now as far as power well Smaug has to be killed by a black arrow, those are kinda rare...Also it has to be Legalas that fires it.

    devilsmilex 9 days ago

    This one was an easy answer. You should have compared Smaug to Balerion The Black Dread, last dragon of old Valyria, he was a 300 years old beast that melted a giant stone castle to the ground with his fire, he was so big, his shadow covered entire towns when flying over them.
    That it's definitely a better fight
