Archery Battle Royale

Battle Royale involving 14 archers across fiction.

Here’s the rules:

– No weapons allowed, apart from the bow and arrow. Hand to hand combat (by hand to hand, I mean fisticuffs and not swords) is an exception, though. Magic is also excluded.

– Regular arrows ONLY. No special arrows allowed.

– Each character must be able to use the bow and arrow professionally. For video game characters, the bow must be a weapon that they could use in gameplay, even if the bow comes from downloadable content (DLC for short!).

– Alliances are permitted, but only one winner overall can emerge alive.


The contestants are:

– Oliver Queen A.K.A. Green Arrow (DC Comics/CW’s Arrow)

– Lara Croft (Tomb Raider)

– Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games)

– Jason Brody (Far Cry 3)

– Clint Barton A.K.A. Hawkeye (Marvel Comics)

– Hanna Heller (Hanna)

– Legolas (Lord of the Rings)

– Ellie (The Last of Us)

– Connor Kenway/Ratonhnhaké:ton (Assassin’s Creed 3)

– Kung Jin (Mortal Kombat X)

– Kyle Crane (Dying Light)

– John Rambo (John Rambo)

– Link (The Legend of Zelda, version with best archery skills)

– The Dovahkiin (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

The Arena will be Isla Nublar from Jurassic Park (BEFORE Jurassic World, though). The contestants are free to roam the whole island, but they must also be prepared to survive the dinosaurs that live on the island. This includes dinosaurs like the Velociraptor, the Dilophosaurus and most of all, the Tyrannosaurus Rex (or T-Rex).

Who will win?

    I say that it be anyone’s Game to say the least, depending on all the rules of this Battle Royale.

    Cool fight in concept, let’s just hope they don’t do any disrespect on the Dead in this thread, Amen to that folks?

    Dinosaurs are gonna have a field day, pretty sure those arrows aren’t going to do crap to the bigger ones.

    Feats for Legolas:
    Fires arrows with enough force to stagger a cave troll

    Invents the skateboard and proceeds to own it

    Gives zero shits about the incoming elephant

    A looooot of bullshit feats here

    Also, didn’t he shoot a Nazgul out of the sky in the books?

  3. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 12:30 am -      #3

    so Green Arrow is live action but Hawkeye wasn’t specified so he gets 616? Well that’s going to suck for some people I guess…..

    yeah I believe he did.

  4. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 12:41 am -      #4

    rapid fire+accuracy

    acid arrow+accuracy on hitting moving vehicle while in moving vehicle to hit the radiator of opposing vehicle

    long range triple headshot

    9 arrows knocking 9 flags off of opposing team in flag football with no injury to the opposing team

    5 guys+5 arrows at once=5 unconcious guys

  5. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 12:47 am -      #5

    while riding a motorcycle with a passenger hits Taskmaster also riding a motorcycle and trying to evade them in crowded streets

    clips a guys mustache to make him think he missed but really was planning to nail the guy in the base of the skull via ricochet the whole time

    ricochets electric arrows off Caps shield to take down multiple targets

    accurately throws coin through car window to save a dog

    hits a thug in the neck with a playing card hard enough to cause him to gag and miss his shot

  6. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 12:54 am -      #6

    pins opponent to wall with knives

    when he was briefly blind pinning his brother to the wall with a thrown arrow

    not really sure how to describe this beyond….accuracy and knowledge of chain reactions and such

    has been known to have adamantium arrows (which level of adamantium is unknown though but still) also putting two arrows down the barrels of a double barrel shotgun

  7. Friendlysociopath October 13, 2015 at 7:57 am -      #7

    I don’t think Link will be much of a factor, since everyone only has regular arrows he’s not the best marksman nor does he have the greatest feats.

    Katniss did prove she had the best idea for this sort of thing. After the word “Go” she’ll run off as far as she can from everyone else and pretty much set up camp and hope for everyone else to die. Not the most glorified way to win, but a strategy is a strategy.

    Without magic, shouts, and other weapons I don’t think the Dragonborn is going to be overly effective either since he’s 100% gameplay for feats.

    And while I’m sure Lara, Ellie, and Jason are good in their own right- I don’t think they have a better chance of winning than the superhumans running around.

  8. Friendlysociopath October 13, 2015 at 8:04 am -      #8

    While I’m at it- can someone walk me through this?
    Did the Moon hit Link in Majora’s Mask in canon?
    Like did it 100% fall in canon and hit the world?
    And did that strike Link?

  9. Nsl98 October 13, 2015 at 9:01 am -      #9

    So who’s Archangel?

    Hawkeye has expierience in this sort of environment due to his numerous trips to the Savage Lands.

    Dodging bullets:


    And considering the fact that he was trained by Cap and one of the first people Tony went to in order to replace him, that should speak volumes about his fighting skill.

    Honestly, the only threats to him skill wise are prolly Legolas and Green Arrow.
    EDIT: Just saw that it was live action Ollie -_-

  10. Archangel470 October 13, 2015 at 11:18 am -      #10

    That would be me. This idea just somehow sprang to my mind while I was using the Bozak Bow in Dying Light one day.

  11. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 11:19 am -      #11

    Actually he was the first person they went to about replacing Cap not just one of. Also too bad this is just regular arrows lol I was all ready to bring up the bunker buster and the pym arrow. Can still use a few feats for accuracy alone though

    nails a car with an explosive arrow

    able to smell people tracking him in the jungle. will prove useful here.

    putting an arrow down the barrel of a revolver

    hits the propeller gears of a helicopter

    hits Bruce Banner out of the way of a bullet fired from a couple feet away before the bullet reaches him……because fuck physics?

  12. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 11:27 am -      #12

    welcome to the site Archangel

  13. Archangel470 October 13, 2015 at 11:31 am -      #13

    Thanks. :)

  14. Nsl98 October 13, 2015 at 11:38 am -      #14

    Also too bad this is just regular arrows lol I was all ready to bring up the bunker buster and the pym arrow.

    I think with trick arrows Hawkeye takes out most, if not all of the completion. It’s prolly for the best :)

    While blind, pinning Barney to a wall:

    Can draw an arrow with his mouth and fire it:


  15. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 11:45 am -      #15

    He and Cap do agility combat training together

    while blind calculates how many arrows his opponent has as they are shot at him, fires an arrow close enough to elicit a reaction from Barney which is what Hawkeye wanted and then catches the last one which he throws as seen in the second link of post six

    What no Araluen ranger to join the fight?

    Outside of a funny look on peoples faces when they see Legolas take down a T-rex like he did the elephant I have to say that Green arrow, Hawkeye, and Legolas are the ones to watch in this fight.

    Most people die within the first few days due to other contestants and the dinos but what happens when people start to run out of arrows?
    Conner if he lives, might have one the better fisticuffs feats in the group but apparently green arrow could make up some traps and spare equipment from the island.

    Katniss runs away but considering what’s going on, that’s not the best strategy. A lot of people who won’t think twice about taking a sniper shot at somebody.

    for a team we might see the three I mentioned above form a group to take out the rest of the competition then have a fast draw contest to decide the winner.

  17. Friendlysociopath October 13, 2015 at 12:42 pm -      #17

    Katniss runs away but considering what’s going on, that’s not the best strategy.

    Technically it is-
    Best chance of survival for her (She can’t fight the current leaders for victory)
    Minimal number of things that go wrong (Either they find her or they don’t)
    And her chances get better with every step she takes (Dinosaurs and other contestants taking on everyone else)

    Although a lot of people are better hunters than her- she does have the added benefit of being extremely used to this exact scenario- something most of the others do not.

    I think Legolas is still my bet to win, don’t all of the Fellowship have those magic capes that make you borderline invisible?
    And Legolas, as an Elf, is really good with animals- T-Rex Riding Legolas anyone?

  18. the_man_with The_Answers October 13, 2015 at 12:47 pm -      #18

    Hawk Eye or Green Arrow for first, Legoland for third.

  19. Nsl98 October 13, 2015 at 12:59 pm -      #19

    What no Araluen ranger to join the fight?

    Will would’ve been perfect for this fight. Or Halt.

  20. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 1:45 pm -      #20

    hitting bullseyes while doing acrobatic training

    knocks an arrow out of the air with his own arrow

    shoots four arrows out of the air with his own four

    shatters an opponents bow

  21. Ordo11 October 13, 2015 at 1:54 pm -      #21

    Will would have been best as he has that feat from the emperor of Nihon-Ja. The one where he stops the arrow from hitting the emperor with his bow then puts an arrow through the archer that shoots it. Also Butterfly would get 3 or fourth over show Oliver show Oliver is no where near as good.

  22. Nsl98 October 13, 2015 at 2:06 pm -      #22

    Yeah, why is Green Arrow gimped?

    I think the more human archers will be the first to go…

  23. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 2:37 pm -      #23

    I’d say first place is going to come down to Hawkeye or Legalos, unless an alliance forms that can actually take one or both of them down if they don’t form their own alliance.

    Can we get more detail on the Dragonborn? What type of gear they are wearing etc.
    some more stuff for Hawkeye
    beats up three men in an elevator

    taking on an army of Hand Ninja’s with Spider-Man while he was in his Ronan outfit

    beats up AIM mooks, HYDRA mooks, and ninja’s alongside Kate Bishop

    throws a deck of cards into the air, rolls out of the bathroom grabs his bow and an arrow comes up and nails a card to the wall dead center before the cards all hit the ground
    not sure if that’s calcable or not.

  24. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 2:48 pm -      #24

    stops Crossfires bullet with an arrow….yeah figure that one out.

    shoots a guy in the wrist while dodging a shot to knock the gun out of the guys hand

    more rapid fire

    fires an arrow one armed with his mouth accurately

  25. Jake_Uzumaki October 13, 2015 at 3:01 pm -      #25

    found the rest of that scan from post 11 where he senses the three guys tracking him, after pointing it out to his allies he takes down all three targets at once fairly casually

    can tell there’s quite a lot of other people still coming, considers that a fair fight

    reflexively fired an arrow straight for Scarlet Witch’s heart because he heard a twig snap while training

  26. Archangel470 October 13, 2015 at 3:44 pm -      #26

    @Jake_Uzumaki I honestly haven’t played Skyrim myself, but I would bet that in a fight like this, the Dragonborn would be using some of the best gear in the game, both armour and weapon wise.

  27. Klondike Bar October 14, 2015 at 12:30 am -      #27

    And Legolas, as an Elf, is really good with animals- T-Rex Riding Legolas anyone?

    Friendly you had me at T-rex Riding Legolas. And yea he did have a cloak that makes him borderline invisible. Other feats that might be relevent include his wood elf heritage witch alows him to climb really well and some sort of forest empathy. Also he is able to walk on lightly packed snow without leaving much of a footprint. Lastly elves do not really sleep they just meditate Unless they are really injured then they sleep.

  28. LadyRamkin October 14, 2015 at 7:33 am -      #28

    Surely most video game characters have their skill with the bow determined by the player?

  29. oakranger October 14, 2015 at 12:44 pm -      #29

    would he get his cloak because their is the magic ban restriction. But T-rex Riding Legolas is something I would like to see, maybe theirs a club “I have ridden a T-rex into battle” he could then join.

    Video game characters are based of player skill but lets take link for an example. He does have targeting that takes it out of our hands so base it off that and find maximum range if possible.

  30. Nsl98 October 14, 2015 at 12:54 pm -      #30

    He does have targeting that takes it out of our hands so base it off that and find maximum range if possible.

    Z Targeting is a game mechanic and not used on FP.

  31. Klondike Bar October 14, 2015 at 2:29 pm -      #31

    The magic ban would probably take it away. I am not really sure what the elves have that is magic and what is not. Only the cloak stands out though.

  32. Fezzes October 14, 2015 at 7:25 pm -      #32

    From the insane stuff Jake_Uzumaki is posting, it looks like Hawkeye pretty much wins, unless it goes long-term. In that case my guess is that Legless the Amputee Wonder wins.

    Also, I love how one of those comic strips implied that every arrow had a 1 in 1 000 000 chance to just stop moving randomly and fall to the ground. Genius writing. *slow clap*

  33. Jake_Uzumaki October 14, 2015 at 7:41 pm -      #33

    I think they included those instances of arrows just sort of falling instead of actually shooting. I doubt anyone felt like actually calculating how often arrows lose forward momentum/what the chances of that is. I don’t actually know what it would be.
    Point of the scan was that Scarlet Witch changed the probability.

    ““I have ridden a T-rex into battle” he could then join.”
    Well Harry Dresden, Optimus Prime, and a version of Captain America have ridden a T-Rex into battle….well one was a zombie T-Rex and one was a robot but…still.

  34. Jake_Uzumaki October 14, 2015 at 7:53 pm -      #34

    took down a helicopter with an adamantium arrow, fairly impressive accuracy I would think.

    using the environment its something useful here I think get raptors or other dinos to attack the others.

    Just straight beating people

  35. Friendlysociopath October 14, 2015 at 8:05 pm -      #35

    I’m not sure how to judge a winner tbh.

    The top people all very consistently hit their targets with their shots and none are so durable that they can just shake off arrows sticking out of them. Especially if nobody has any equipment beyond the bows.

    This reminds me of that Gunslinger Battle Royale in that fashion, everyone can pretty much oneshot everyone else.

  36. Jake_Uzumaki October 14, 2015 at 8:18 pm -      #36

    well as far as I know aren’t Legalos and Hawkeye the only ones that can multishot? I mean I could be wrong but still seems like that would be useful.
    Also they probably have the best chances of surviving the dinos.

    That said the OP doesn’t specify do they start around each other or do they start a distance away?
