Knight, because they got metal armor, and those stupid asian samurais have leather and cloth armor, thats not even supposed to protect them. Their armor is only for show.

it all depends on the skill of the knight and the samuri, but genarlay speaking the samuri would win, all samuris do is read poems and have warsthere whole world revolves around fighting. while i knight is just a kings helper thing.

well, it acually depend on how many samurai and knight!
and not all samurai are fast! and not all knight are slow!

knights are more equip and has skills and better swords, samurai are fast and they can understand each other without fighting!
but not all knights has sword! some of them has those bow and arrow!
so who would win?
the knights! they just use their bow and arrow and kill all the samurai!


ps: samurai and ninjas are totaly different!
ninjas would knock the samurai out of them!

1. Don't call asian samurais for stupid.
2. They don't only wear leather, but also iron.
3. Their armor is not only for show, its shows something, yes, but its an armor.
4. Have you ever watched 'The last samurai'? FOOL!

Read my last post.

'The last samurai' have some errors in it.
But look at it.

Ninja's jumps at trees at such.
They are hitmans, from the Japaneese Empror.

A knight have big armor, and maybe a big strength. - So he is slow.
A samurai train for the perfect battle. When they got armor on it's not heavy, but can protect something. I agree that if the knight hit him - stab, then the samurai will die.
- Anyway. It won't happend. A samurai is the most perfect sword warrior ever. He is light armor. No heavy sword. Perfect technique. Perfect sword. So anyway, the samurai will win.

A sword battle between a ninja and a samurai, the samurai will still win.

A 'surprice' attack, then I think the ninja would win.

The knight is too slow.

Samurais' are way too fast for Knights. If you equp them with the same things: choice of sword and choice of armor. Then samurais would prolly win. If the knights get to have a lance and a horse, then that's a different story lol.

About the Ninja thing. Ninjas are specialised in stealth and surprises. Samurais are specialised in warfare and "dueling". If the BEST samurai fights the BEST ninja without any "cheating" e.g. sprinkling of blinding powders and such, sasmurais win. if everything in everyone's arsenal can be used, ninjaa probably will win because of their superior "cheat" skills.

Okay, if we compare them realistically, the knight would win, but that's simple beause time allowed the knight to craft better weapons. The samurai will have to deal with the metal armor of the knight (ya know, I don't care how strong a katana is, it was not made to go through steel) and also his strength.

Did anyone ever see The Last Samurai?

At a time when the Western world was still beating each other with clubs, the Samurai were the most sophisticated warriors in the world. A knight would be cut in 10 pieces before he knew what hit him.

LeviathaN
04-21-2005, 06:46 PM
I would say samurai hands down. Their skill with swords is FAR better. Their swords are tougher, lighter, and stronger then the knight. Yes the knight has full mteal or steel armor but all armor has weaknesses all the samurai would have to do is get a swing at the neck or the armpit area and the knight armor is rendered useless. As far as a knight with a lance goes alot of lances were made out of wood with the sharp tip and very bad at arms length. So what would happen if the samurai gets close or cuts the lance in half? That looks like a dead knight to me. Samurai's could just pick them off with their bow they are extremly accurate.

Samurai easy, they train 24/7 they rush in to combat and just stab iether right in where the face is visible, or get them in the side then pull body in clos then twist the sword. Knight could win if could predict what samurai was doing but thats next to impossible because each samurai is diffrent. The armor is light but amazingly resiliant.
On top of that the way a samurais armor is designed is used to frighten their enemys and usualys leaves them mentaly weak and unready to fight. A skilled samurai can take on 40 knights easy, a skilled knight can take on 2 samurai. Samurais also train in the art of tacticaly precision, they will wait till the enemy gets close then reveal themselves and go for the kill. The only way a knight can win in most cases is by catching the samurai off gaurd which is very hard to do as they are very watchfull, most of the time.

The last samurai is a good depicition of what real samurais were like, only they were more skilled.
As a matter of fact samurais are what nearly conquered half of the planet twice i might add.

Knight easily. Why? Samurai were in Asia, which was cut off from the rest of the world. While Eurpoe had steel, Asia was working with lesser metals like iron. The Samurai would have a tough time getting through the knight's armor, while the knight kicks the samurai's ass. However, I'd have to choose Samurai's in a army vs army war. Simply because they are well disciplined, and worked better as an army at the time than Eurpoe.

Wraithstorm
05-02-2005, 09:24 PM
Samurai had lesser metals? lol. Ever heard of folded steel?

Swords in those time were full of impurities made by uneven smithing. The Japanese folded the steel when crafting thier blades, spreading the weaknesses meaning the sword is stronger than any period. And that's without even bringing the methods they used to temper the blades, creating the zig-zagging temper line across the blade's edge in the proccess.

If you look at it that way, a samurai would be lighter and thus making him faster than a knight being weighed down by his heavy metal armour.

A knight is good for fighting other knights, they have no experience in fighting samurais and wouldn't know how to defend themselves against their attacks.

samurai, no doubt! A knight has heavy armor that only slows him down, and a huge sword that very difficult to handle. A samurai is better trained, has light but strong armor, sword is folded between 50-100 times while forging (no kidding! you can still buy 'em, they're insanely expensive...) making them stronger than a knights sword.

a samurai kicks a knight's ass before he knows he has an opponent...

05-04-2005, 11:25 PM
samurais because they are trained way better also a knights armor isnt that solid a Longbows arrow can penetrate it as easy as butter. Besides the samurais have the best sword its light and can cut through even the harest armor. The knight is slow because of the armor but he has some skillz that would allow him to survive for some time, while the agility of a samurai and his skills are no match for a knight. So overall a samurai would win. Also CHINA invented gunpowder not JAPAN.

Samurais of course. Simply because knights had swords so big that they had to be carried with 2 hands, and the long part wasn't really sharp. They were more like big clubs with pointy ends. A samurai's sword is made to not only impale, but also to slice and dice. Plus Bushido >>Chivalry.

The Samurai's are not only known for their fastness, skills and high quality swords.

But also for their skills with other things, for eksampel a bow.
Or a wand for that sake.

i think the Samurai would win.

Quicker and more agile that a clunky knight in armor.
also a samurai is very diciplined and devotes their life to the way of the sword.

sure the knight has armor, but almost any sword at an angle of 0 degrees driven into an armor in that time would definatly pierce right through.

katanas are dangerously sharp and regarded as one of the most dangereous swords, and is one of the samurai's favorite.

this upcommng comment is going to be stupid in the knights favor, but the depth of technique with a sword also goes to the samurai.

Myztix
05-09-2005, 02:18 AM
The samurai would totally own the knight. A knight's armor has several weak spots, like the neck and arm pits. It wouldn't be hard for a samurai to hit those spots.

Are you guys retarded?

Their are so many types of knights and so many types of samurai each with their own advantages and disadventages.

If you take the templars they kicked asses back in the 11th-13th century. They where [just like samurais] Highly devoted to their skills and whould traind [and pray to god] everyday. They where strong as hell and could take massive hits and would still keep on fighting, but their where not all heavy tanks some prefered knives poles or bows, and for the armor cloth/leather or plate.

It all depends on the situation and the type of samurai/knight who are fighting.

You cant just say samurai>knight thats utterly bull----!

Okay, first off, knights were taken at the age of eight to begin training. That's damn young. Samurai started training around the same time. I think....

Anyways,
Armoured: The knight would MOST likely win. All they'd need to do is get one shot in, and it would knock the samurai off his feet. Then *woooosh* done.

Unarmoured: I would go with the samurai. The knights were in such good condition. So were the samurai, for sure. However they carried around that armour, and were in VERY good condition. The choice of weapon matters, of course, which is why I chose the samurai.


FOR YOUR INFO! SAMURAI IS THE PLURAL AND SINGULAR FOR SAMURAI STOP ADDING AN "S" AT THE END OF SAMURAI....

It's called doing a stab... He freaking stabs his katana into the Knight.

Knights armor is tough, But it was made for protection not movement. Samurai armor on the other hand is built for both.

And Katana's are one of the best made swords depending on where you get them.

A knight with a mace can beat a samurai with a katana, maces can shatter shields, swords, and armor easily.

Think about that... A say... Uhh...

"40-50Lb. Mace" against a say "10lb(MAX) Katana"

When the Knight goes to take a swing the Samurai could probably land about... uhh maybe 5 hits on him.

And RikkuFox, Don't spam. This is a thread called: "Samurai VS. Knight" no where in it is the word "Pirate".

samurai ftw there sword wud cut through the armor and there alot faster than the knight

.Celestial

Due to popular belief a katana can NOT cut through mideival armor. There armor was made THICK. It wasn't light. So think!

If I swing a stick at a 2x4 that sticks going to break.

Knights weren't trained, they were gaged by how many people they could kill and how fast. Samurai on the other hand were trained on vital points, etc. So while a knight is swinging a huge ass sword around a samurai can look at whats happening and find a way to attack those spots.

So please think before you make a mindless comment.

you guys put out knights to be some stupid slow unable to fight people... retarded.

I say a samurai would win 1v1 but in a full out war it'd be close..

Merged Post:

btw good site on this subject :

http://www.thearma.org/essays/knightvs.htm

If u read this you'll see that it'd be close. and that knights are not what most of you think of them as likewise for the samurai

Ghost... All that makes sense and all, but think about the education. Japanese were taught more in training with a sword then normal knights.

Most knights went into battle with someone slapping them on the shoulders saying, "Hope yah don't die." Unless you were extremely special or noble you wouldn't be given training... Hell you wouldn't be a knight.

Do you really believe that? Even squires knew how to fight. That's just a hole load of bull----

First of all, a samurais weapon woudnt stand a chance in hell of penetrating a knights armour. The knight gets one hit in and the samurai dies, also, Knights were trained and they never sent a lot of knights into battle, Soldiers and Knights are different. Knights tended to be higher respected, well trained and would defend important people.

Also, not all knights used huge ass swords, of course some used Lances, and some used regular swords :|

knight ftw..^^ brokens right armour is hell a tough and they could ride there horses over them. Did i mention horses are caoted in aromour aswell? It all depends on which period of knight your thinking about. Sure in the 600's B.C to around 600 AD samuras's ruled but.. time goes on.

So your saying a 20-50lb weapon a knight weilds, can beat a maybe 10lb MAX Katana? (I don't agree with the article)

Like I said before, when the Knight is trying to swing his 20-50lb weapon how many times do you think he'd be hit by the easy to move 10lb MAX Katana?

And think about what you said Cerebus, Think about the time era and the education back then.

wouldnt the samuri sword just slice right through the armor and even the chain mail? plus, somebody with skills like a samuri would be able to hit a weak point like the arm pit..

Cerberus
08-25-2006, 11:30 AM
Break the chain mail, probably. Break the steel plates, I don't think so.. the best option is to chop of the knights head, or thrust into the eye hole in the helmet and into the brains :huh:

The knight was trained, and they had shields as well. They were not just blokes that didn't know what they were doing. They knew how to fight. lol
