Smaug vs Drogon: Who Would Win?

Smaug vs Drogon: For this Faceoff, we went all out to bring you the two most vicious, ferocious dragons out there. These two flying creatures beasts from The Lord of the Rings movies, and GOT tv series, have obliterated armed convoys, burnt cities to a crisp, and devoured countless lives. Now they are facing each other head to head, but who would win?

Smaug vs Drogon

The first dragon to seize the big screen was Draco from Dragonheart with his huge talons and spiked back, he would swoop in and let out a fireball or two. That film was nominated for an Academy Award for best visual effects. Ah, how far we’ve come. Since then, on-screen dragons have gotten bigger, meaner, and a hell of a lot more believable.

“My armor is like tenfold shields, my teeth are swords, my claws spears, the shock of my tail is a thunderbolt, my wings a hurricane, and my breath death!”

Not a whole lot is known about Smaug’s early days. We know that JRR Tolkien’s dragon was hibernating on all the wealth he had amassed for 171 years, just after laying waste to a neighboring city, which means he is at least that old (and most likely at least a few hundred years more). Smaug is an extremely violent, cruel, and sadistic dragon who has an unquenchable thirst for gold. Bad news for anyone who has it because not only is he cruel, he is extremely dangerous.

At around 130 meters in length, Smaug has razor-sharp claws and teeth, near-impenetrable scales, and different forms of fire he can spew from his mouth.

Despite his scaly back, his underbelly is largely soft and poses a risk. He knows this and tries to protect it from harm, but ultimately, that is the way to take him down.

Arrogance Can Be Fatal

Smaug’s arrogance is also noteworthy as hubris has taken down many a tyrant. Beings as proud as Smaug is, he can surely be susceptible to anyone (or anything) clever enough to use it against him.

Everyone else can burn

Drogon (Game of Thrones, George RR Martin) was one of three dragons belonging to Daenerys Targaryen. The largest of the three, he was the dominant one with the other two submissives to his authority Only seven years old, Drogon’s temper is boiling just like the fire he spits. It doesn’t take much to set him off and if you do, you’re as good as toast. This bad boy has killed countless people and torched whole cities to the ground with complete disregard for human life.

It seems like the only empathy he feels is towards Daenerys. As far as he’s concerned everyone else can burn. Although he has an impressive set of scales, they don’t seem to be impenetrable as we’ve seen him be speared on his back, as well as his underbelly.

A vicious animal, Drogon is just that – an animal. More intelligent than your standard goat, Drogon still doesn’t stack up against more intelligent beings. Smaug is fully grown and highly intelligent, managing to repeatedly outsmart dwarfs and hobbits alike. He is nearly unbeatable, but knowing that might just be what brings him down

Formidable in size, Drogon is without a doubt a force to be reckoned with. We’ve seen him grapple with other dragons before and come out on top, but will he be able to beat Smaug?
