Conan Vs Wulfgar (Forgotten Relams)

Conan Vs Wulfgar (Forgotten Realms)

Here we have a classic match between two barbarians for bragging rights. While more people are probably familiar with Conan, Wulfgar brings skills that would make Conan respectful of his foe.

At the end of this battle, after some super macho-ism, they’d prolly both drink a toast with each other’s blood and become blood brothers – but who would claim the victory?

    Wulfgar ftw?

    I tend to side with any characters in FR.

    I think Wulfgar would mop the floor with Conan. This man has suffered the pain of death, long years in the torturous hands of the demon Ertuu, and crawled out of the fiery pits of hell as strong and powerful as ever before.

    I don’t think Conan has the stuff to withstand a single hurl from the mighty Aegis Fang, the hammer that easily topples giants and produces the doom of dragons.

    that must mean wulfgar wins then :S

    wulfgar smacks conan in the head for taking crap from the yellow pages guy. seriously though wulfgar beats conan with one throw of aegis fang

    Does Conan have any powerful magical weapons available for use? If not, then I don’t see how he’ll last long when Wulfgar has the enchanted Aegis-Fang.

    BTW, how big is Conan? Wulfgar’s about seven foot if I remember correctly, and insanely muscled even for that size.

    Wulfgar would win. He survived torturing by a demon. And, he’s only around 20. a GREAT battle though.This is how I see the battle going down.

    Wulfgar starts out, holding Aegis fang. Conan starts out on the other side. I’m guessing this is an arena, about 100 feet around. Wulfgar throws his hammer, and Conan grabs it. But It pulls him towards Wulfgar, and Wulf gets a punch in. Then Conan gets a swing in, and it becomes a fist fight. At the end, Wulf stands up bloodied and beaten.

    Wulfgar.

    Conan may be strong, but he wasn’t trained like Wulfgar. Wulfgar not only has strength and power but speed and skill as well.

    Plus Aegis will pwn conan so hard there be nothing left.

  9. AHEM September 2, 2009 at 6:05 pm -      #9

    Hmm, according to my research, Conan seems to be around 6’2, meaning he’ll be dwarfed by Wulfgar’s seven-foot build. Both are extraordinarily strong and muscular, but based on the size difference, I have to go with Wulfgar FTW.

    wulfger bay way of angus fang (speel wrong im sure)

  11. AHEM January 15, 2010 at 2:51 pm -      #11

    “wulfger bay way of angus fang (speel wrong im sure)”

    Yup, should be Aegis Fang. You also spelt “spelt” wrong. Now that’s just embarrassing.

  12. John Anen January 27, 2010 at 12:02 pm -      #12

    Angus Fang? What’s that, a tooth you use to eat meat?

  13. midnite marauder January 27, 2010 at 12:21 pm -      #13

    Wulfgar. He kills giants single-handed he should have no trouble dealing with Conan. Wulfgar FTW via Aegis Fang smashing Conan’s head out his ass.

    John Anen-Aegis Fang is a magical warhammer created by the Dwarven King Bruenor Battlehammer. Its an incredibly powerful weapon that’s unbreakable to my knowledge and when thrown magically summons back to Wulfgar’s hand.

  14. midnite marauder January 27, 2010 at 12:22 pm -      #14

    On a side note I think a match between Master Chief and Wulfgar would be interesting.

  15. Matapiojo January 27, 2010 at 12:36 pm -      #15

    More info on the epic hammer.

    forgottenrealms.wikia.com/wiki/Aegis-fang

    Some circles consider the weapon to be a +3 warhammer. However, the weapon is considered to have an additional +1 in the hands of Wolfgar, as well as being able to recall it to his hand telepathically. Bruenor has yet to craft an item that matches Aegis Fang’s splendor. It is not expected for him to do so at a future time.

    Read some Conan stories. And take note of the noteworthy. Whereas Wulfgar kills giants of the verbeeg variety, Conan killed a couple of frost giants. Single-handedly, at the same time. With no help from magic or drow virtuosos.

    He had a sword.

    He’d also just finished fighting with Northmen, in a battle that killed all of his comrades, and left him the sole survivor.

    Conan has faced his share of demons.

    He wrestled and killed the gorilla-thing, Thok. A gorilla’s strength exceeds that of men by a factor of ten or possibly more. Conan is just as strong as Wulfgar. He’s described as panther-like, in terms of that, as well as his own natural agility.

    He differs in his use of additional faculties – ingenuity, guile, and self-reliance – to win through by innovation and solving.

    Wulfgar leaves that to minds better equipped, waiting for chances to throw his hammer. As barbarians go, he’s a little spoiled. By a certain dwarven king we all know. He is not accustomed to life on his own. To standing alone, which Conan has done since fifteen or younger.

    Conan took the throne of Aquilonia, a great kingdom of the Hyborian Age.

    Wulfgar took over an obscure, removed tribe, with little influence on the world as a whole. Coupled with his narrative role as a sidekick, this seems to prove Conan the greater leader, the greater warrior-king in a pure sense.

    Shelve modern fantasy, go back to your Howard. Pay the Cimmerian his due respect.

    Whenever I imagine Wulfgar fighting anybody, I’m taken aback to the time he faught Heafstaag, when he grabbed him by the head and clapped it into mush with his bare hands.

    Even then he has Aegis Fang, the pinnacle of Bruenor Battlehammer’s smithing work (and a dwarf’s greatest creation is nothing to scoff at). He can throw it long distances and it teleports back to his hand at his command.

    Having seen him go barbarian v. barbarian before, I’d have to vote for Wulfgar here.

    Pretty much a hardcore fight here, with each one having equal chances to win. I’d still give majority of the matches to wulfgar though and here’s why:

    strength: Wulfgar is pretty much the strongest human in FR. Conan is probably the strongest man in his own world. So in terms of raw strength, they’re about equal, or close enough to be equal that it doesn’t matter. Wulfgar however is about a foot taller, with a bigger stature and probably 50 or so lbs heavier. That means that Wulfgar with have more weight behind his blows, not to mention longer reach. So when everything else is equal, strength in this case, then size does matter.

    Speed and agility. Conan has been described as “moves like a panther”, and has been seen to be capable of sommersaults and backflips and the like. And while Wulfgar is naturally athletic and extremely fast for his size, I doubt that he can move like conan. However we must consider that Wulfgar was trained by Drizzt and was more or less able to come somewhat close to Drizzt’s fighting prowess, and compared to Drizzt, conan is slow. So, I believe Conan is faster and more agile, and yet Wulfgar is used to fighting enemies a lot faster than Conan. It’s too close to call in this aspect, and so I’d see it as a tie.

    Intelligence: In terms of war strategy and tactics, Conan is better hands down. He was a freaking king who led armies, Wulfgar was a tribe leader. Big deal. However in one to one combat, where it’s more battle saviness that we need, I believe Wulfgar has the upper hand. Conan goes into berserk mode far too often, and relies on pure brutality more often than cunning. Wulfgar used to be similar, but after coming back from Errtu and mastering his own inner demon, wulfgar started fighting in a calm, calculating mannerism, tapping into his barbarian instincts only as necessasry. This attitude I believe puts him on an edge over Conan in terms of battle cunning.

    Pain threshhold: Conan can growl away pain. Wulfgar after a decade in Errtu’s hell, has found a way to psychologically cut off himself from pain. Two differnt things. And here is where wulfgar really has the edge over conan.

    GOD DAMN THIS IS A CLOSE AND AWSOME MATCH UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    “strength: Wulfgar is pretty much the strongest human in FR. Conan is probably the strongest man in his own world. So in terms of raw strength, they’re about equal, or close enough to be equal that it doesn’t matter. Wulfgar however is about a foot taller, with a bigger stature and probably 50 or so lbs heavier. That means that Wulfgar with have more weight behind his blows, not to mention longer reach. So when everything else is equal, strength in this case, then size does matter.”

    Conan from the books is larger and taller (he was 6ft and 180 at 14-15 yrs old) so i would say they are equal in str.

    “Speed and agility. Conan has been described as “moves like a panther”, and has been seen to be capable of sommersaults and backflips and the like. And while Wulfgar is naturally athletic and extremely fast for his size, I doubt that he can move like conan. However we must consider that Wulfgar was trained by Drizzt and was more or less able to come somewhat close to Drizzt’s fighting prowess, and compared to Drizzt, conan is slow. So, I believe Conan is faster and more agile, and yet Wulfgar is used to fighting enemies a lot faster than Conan. It’s too close to call in this aspect, and so I’d see it as a tie.”

    I agree with you, while conan is faster and more agile Wulfgar being trained by Drizzt means he will be capable of defending against such things.

    So equal again.

    “Intelligence: In terms of war strategy and tactics, Conan is better hands down. He was a freaking king who led armies, Wulfgar was a tribe leader. Big deal. However in one to one combat, where it’s more battle saviness that we need, I believe Wulfgar has the upper hand.

Wulfgar used to be similar, but after coming back from Errtu and mastering his own inner demon, wulfgar started fighting in a calm, calculating mannerism, tapping into his barbarian instincts only as necessasry. This attitude I believe puts him on an edge over Conan in terms of battle cunning.”

    Younger Conan went batshit a lot but older conan (in his 30’s) was a lot wiser and while he still used his rages he was not controlled by them.

    “Pain threshhold: Conan can growl away pain. Wulfgar after a decade in Errtu’s hell, has found a way to psychologically cut off himself from pain. Two differnt things. And here is where wulfgar really has the edge over conan.”

    Conan has been torn up a lot and while he never spent years in hell under the lash of a uber evil goddess it must be noted that Lloth did break wulfgar, however no mortal including conan could take that and not break.

    Again id say they have shown equal resilience to pain under normal circumstances.

    Weapons wise wulfgar had the more maical weapon but conan is agile enough to avoid a throw and has had magical swords in the past and his weapon being bladed means in a long battle wulfgar will have much more blood loss.

    Again id say that the bladed weapon of conan and the types of wounds it would cause in a long fight and his agility balances out the extra magical ability of wulfgars weapon.

    I was looking for ‘Conan vs any other ”gladiator” characters, and this topic came up. Heh, it is a great matchup though, which is what caught my eye. The last couple comments had some merit, but I have some points that I think also have some merit.

    Let’s assume that somehow a god or anything else actually Did manage to capture Conan, and he Didn’t manage to escape the chains, Before they tormented him, And then they Still somehow managed to put him through ten years of torment. You say ‘no mortal could endure that kind of pain’..OK, well..he’s Conan. He would come out different, sure, but..he’s Conan. By ‘different’, I mean he’d just come out ten times more bad-ass than before. Not self destructive or alchoholic or anything. Just even More bad-ass. Shit, if you put Conan through ten years of literal hell, and then brought him back…his so called ‘power level’ would be insane. One thing about Conan is his indomitable nature/willpower..not even the gods can hope to break it.

    and now to the actual battle: Conan vs Wulfgar. Yeah, Wulfgar is a badass, for sure. I love his character. But, Conan has slain creatures that far surpass Wulfgar in physical strength. But so has Wulfgar. That would come down to Conan’s far superior agility, rogue abilities, and gladiatorial training. Win for Conan there. Someone talked about speed- sorry, but Conan would even defeat Drizzt Do’Urden, armed with nothing but a loincloth, a length of prison chain, and a ‘rusty longsword’. He’s just too good. (ha yeah ok that opens a whole new VS-most of you’d probably take Drizzt, but I wouldn’t- You’ll see why below).

    Wulfgar definitely has an awesome weapon. I think Aegis Fang would be the cheat Wulfgar would HAVE to have in order to have any chance at all to win. Even so, Conan would find a way to defeat Wulfgar, even with Aegis Fang in hand. (he takes Wulfgar’s hands off, for instance, or sticks Aegis to his hand with something- can’t make opponents’ jaws drop when it misses and comes back when it can never even leave your hand..Personally, I think Conan just gets help from the hot she-warrior or sorceress that he bedded the night before, who sacrifices herself because Wulfgar abused her in a drunken stupor or because he opposes some ideal or faction ).

    I think that, ultimately, it comes down to a battle of character vs character As Written.
    It’s kind of like pitting Superman vs The Hulk. Wulfgar has huge strengths, but vicious flaws. Conan, All strength, no flaws; As Written, he is the pinnacle or uber-specimen of mankind, while Wulfgar is merely ‘great’. Conan is a ‘Legend’. (for DnD dorks like me, see ‘The Legend’ prestige class in Ultimate Prestige Guide 1- Conan has it, Wulfgar, not really) . RESULT: Conan wins a suitably epic battle.

    PS we could always create the two using the 3.5 rules and see who comes out ahead…rogue/barbarian/fighter vs straight barbarian, same points & levels, etc. Sneak attack and tumble are sweet.

    errr sorry about the double post Critical strike, I’m new to the site and my comp is slow- didnt see the first post Actually post.

    I would have to say though, because Wulfgar was trained under Drizzt, he would not commit himself to rage as I’m sure Conan would in an all out brawl, leaving him open to wickedly powerful punches from Wulfgar, and maybe even a throw or two, but putting Aegis-Fang on top of that, although a bit unfair with the teleportation, would leave Conan ducking and rolling whenever Wulfgar threw it, and then dodging whenever it was swung within melee range, because few would think to block that heavy of a blow, and fewer still could withstand it. I do not watch Conan, but I would have to say that it would end up being Conan trying to bowl Wulfgar over, Wulfgar picks him up as he is so over-balanced, tosses him over his shoulder, and then gives him a hand to get up, and then off to an adventure of some kind where either one is blamed for a child’s birth and then spend half the day after running from countless guards. But on the topic of lone adventures and hardships, I would have to say Wulfgar takes the cake, not only was he tortured for ten-odd years in the hands of Errtu,but he also braved the four seasons of Icewind Dale, which no one in the right mind would attempt. He also bedded Catta-Brie, the adopted though much loved daughter of a surly dwarf that would bite your testicles off, spit them out, and tell you they tasted horrible, all before disemboweling you with his one-horned helm because you got on his bad side. On the point of global importance, he was one of the Companions of the Hall, which freed Mithral Hall from Shadowgloom, and eventually brought peace to the Silver Marches, one of the most influential lands in all Faerune.

    With that last part of my comment, I have to think on the battle of the Silver Marches with the Kingdom of Dark Arrows. What would happen if you put Conan against Obould Many-Arrows, the god empowered orc that flipped a likely one and a half ton frost giant, took many throws from Aegis-Fang with barely a grunt and step back from each, and survived a magic earthquake from a silly courtesan priest that ripped half a mountain in two, leaving him at the bottom of a large crevice, only a bit more angry.
