Morgoth Vs Link

Morgoth (Lord of the Rings) Vs Link (Legend of Zelda)

Here is a match that might put an official end to Link’s adventures. While I’d like to think that he would put up an epic fight, he might have run into another enemy that could outlast him.

What do you think?

    You’re seriously pitting Link against Sauron’s boss? I’m about as hardcore as Zelda fans go but I’m not sure about this one. But I will say that Morgoth could never corrupt him, so that’s a plus.

    My prediction: Morgoth kills Link’s body but, rather than reincarnate, his soul ascends to godhood where a truly epic battle takes place.

  2. L-W February 22, 2009 at 10:58 pm -      #2

    Even in his weakest and most basic of physical incarnations witnessed in the Silmarils, he was said to be “…as a mountain that wades in the sea and has its head above the clouds and is clad in ice and crowned with smoke and fire; and the light of the eyes of Melkor was like a flame that withers with heat and pierces with a deadly cold.”.

    Essentially you’re pitting the right hand of God against an Elf. How can this be an epic clash when Morgoth essentially has the ability to wish Link out of existence? Or transform him into something so foul that even Link would wish to kill himself?

    Morgoth pwns Link

  4. El Zilcho February 23, 2009 at 2:00 am -      #4

    To add to L-W statement, Morgoth’s attacks are like bolts of lightning, and when Grond, the Hammer of the Underworld, hits the ground it “[rends] a mighty pit in the earth” from where “smoke and fire [darts]”.

    As for fighting Elves, Morgoth isn’t exactly short of experience in pummeling them into the ground, both figuratively and literally. Nearly the entire first age of middle earth is a war between the Elves and Morgoth. He rarely takes to the field himself, content to let his minions (such as Orcs, Balrogs and Dragons) do that for him. But when he does, he is a terror to behold. The mightiest warrior amongst the elves of the first age, Fingolfin, the High King of the Noldor, is slain in single combat with Morgoth.

    But the main reason why Link can not win this fight is because Morgoth is a Valar, he is a god, and even during his most weakened state (during his fight with Fingolfin) he is still invincible to those not of the Valar.

    Who thought up this fight? It’s so one sided that there is no way for Link to win, there are many Middle-Earth villains that Link could beat or would at least stand a chance of beating but Morgoth is not one of them.

    P.S. Link is a Hylian not an elf, get it right there is a difference between them.

  6. Matapiojo February 23, 2009 at 8:51 am -      #6

    Link gets ROFLSTOMPED. There is no way around this.

    “Link is a Hylian not an elf, get it right there is a difference between them.”
    Hylians are elves.
    Just like Tails is a mutant squirrel.

    “P.S. Link is a Hylian not an elf, get it right there is a difference between them.”

    Which is?….

  9. Matapiojo February 23, 2009 at 11:47 am -      #9

    I appologize for the double post, but I found this to be humorous regarding Tim’s statement…

    “Who thought up this fight? It’s so one sided that there is no way for Link to win, there are many Middle-Earth villains that Link could beat or would at least stand a chance of beating but Morgoth is not one of them.”

    Posts made by Tim in the Morgoth Vs Darth Vader match ( BankGambling.com/archives/898 ):

    #15 – “That is a great idea JoshMcFace, putting the creator of Middle Earth’s evil up against the hero weilding the blade of evil’s bane. Although I think maybe we should have Link go up against Sauron first.”

    #19 – “Hopefully all these fights will get made eventually, and I would love to see more fights involving Morgoth and other Middle-Earth characters too, there isn’t enough fights involving them on this website in my opinion. They could use Sauron before he made the ring or when he was the Necromancer, although he would be weaker in both of these forms and I would prefer him to fight Link at his strongest.”

    ——————————————————

    Which goes to show that researching at the very least within this site is very important. Even researching your OWN posts in the matter…..

  10. Battra Boy February 23, 2009 at 12:28 pm -      #10

    Morgoth would rip Link apart with his bare hands, theres no way that Link could win this fight!

  11. Cpt Olimar February 23, 2009 at 1:29 pm -      #11

    mata, Link doesn’t get roflstomped by morgoth as much as you just roflstomped tim in your post hahaha that was just great :)

  12. EnigmaJ February 23, 2009 at 4:15 pm -      #12

    Link is doomed.

    But what if he uses the fierce diety mask?

  13. JoshMcFace February 23, 2009 at 6:39 pm -      #13

    Wow Link Shall be squished lol. I was one for Sauron vs Ganondorf, as some people weren’t content with the Witch King vs Ganondorf…
    What would be fair with Morgoth then? Galactus maybe?? Don’t know too much about him though.

  14. JoshMcFace February 23, 2009 at 6:49 pm -      #14

    Oooo and the witch king vs Nihilius

  15. x on February 23, 2009 at 7:28 pm -      #15

    *But what if he uses the fierce diety mask?*

    He still dies Morgoth is more powerfull then the fierce diety and any other diety in zelda.

  16. Tim February 24, 2009 at 8:49 am -      #16

    I know what I said seemed stupid when considering what I had said earlier but in my defence I had forgotten about that and I have done more research on Morgoth since then. If I had known what I do now I would have said that putting Link against Morgoth was a bad idea at that time as well. But i’ll admit you just owned me, badly.

    Hylians are just humans with pointed ears, they even call themselves humans most of the time, the only difference between normal humans and Hylians is their ears. Whereas elves are a completely different race to humans that just bear a resemblence to them(humans).

    @Cpt Olimar

    That message was brought to you by the BankGambling Triumvirate. May the admin show mercy on his soul.

    @JoshMcFace

    Yea, Morgoth is more within the league of Galactus and other similar beings. The problem with those matches (as seen in this one: BankGambling.com/archives/1406 ) is that it is dificult to make arguments in favor or against these beings with our limited human perceptions. Most of the concepts that compose these beings escape our own reasons and realities.

    @Diana

    hahaha. Sometimes there is just no other words to explain certain fights.

    @Tim

    I can see how that happens. First impressions of charachters/stories are often forgotten once we learn more of the subject. It is what it is, right? And your Hylian argument makes sense logically, but I will have to read into their background a bit more before completely agreeing with your determination.

  18. JoshMcFace February 24, 2009 at 2:50 pm -      #18

    True, its hard to argue unlimited godly power vs unlimited godly power. It would still look pretty interesting though. Galactus and Morgoth just look so contrasting, even though they have their similarities.

  19. The Chosen One February 24, 2009 at 8:32 pm -      #19

    Morgoth would just kill link where he stands. I love Link but he would need help to win like the 3 goddesses holding morogth in place or something while the sages trap him in a time prison or something but seeing as this is a just Link vs Morgoth i dont think he can win unless the Triforce would just destroy a being that evil.

  20. Scenario February 25, 2009 at 9:23 am -      #20

    The Triforce is pretty much neutral, it goes to the ones who most represent it’s components, except for that time Ganon stole it. The only one Link gets is courage.

    However, it would be interesting to Link plus the Sages and Goddesses going all out.

  21. JoshMcFace February 25, 2009 at 12:26 pm -      #21

    Yeah, maybe the Zelda universe vs Morgoth :)

  22. =[BF]=JimmieRox February 27, 2009 at 2:24 pm -      #22

    Wow, take a week off and miss so much fun!

    “Essentially you’re pitting the right hand of God against an Elf. How can this be an epic clash when Morgoth essentially has the ability to wish Link out of existence? Or transform him into something so foul that even Link would wish to kill himself?” L-W

    I disagree, Melkor was more like the Devil than anything else and while you may say the Lord of the Rings is about religion its not, its about European history.

  23. =[BF]=JimmieRox February 27, 2009 at 3:05 pm -      #23

    Phrased that badly, I meant to say “while some people may say”.

  24. =[BF]=JimmieRox February 27, 2009 at 3:11 pm -      #24

    Also, there are three tiers of gods in the Lord of the Rings, there is Eru who created the universe. Then there are the Valar and the Maiar who were created by Eru. So Eru is the ultimate power, then come the Valar (of which Melkor was one) and then there were the lesser Valar, who were called Maiar.

  25. L-W February 28, 2009 at 12:59 am -      #25

    “I disagree, Melkor was more like the Devil than anything else and while you may say the Lord of the Rings is about religion its not, its about European history.”

    Another classic example of missing the point, although said point is about the size of a dump truck

    /Golf Clap.

  26. El Zilcho February 28, 2009 at 5:27 am -      #26

    @ Diana
    Actually its Eru Iluvatar, and Eru Iluvatar can be refered to as Eru or Iluvatar

  27. =[BF]=JimmieRox March 5, 2009 at 8:42 am -      #27

    Whatever, basically the point comes down to a immensely powerful being against a four foot tall child with pointy ears.

  28. =[BF]=JimmieRox March 11, 2009 at 7:44 pm -      #28

    Admin, can we have a BankGambling Certificate of Death for Link?

  29. Cpt Olimar March 11, 2009 at 10:10 pm -      #29

    uhh hes already dead, Kharne owned him. (lol)

    Link’s second certificate of death. Triumvirate of BankGambling Sign here ____________

  31. Joe Brosnan April 2, 2009 at 1:25 pm -      #31

    Why aren’t there religious fights actually? Between ‘real’ Gods.
    This one seems pretty obvious, I think.
    Some dude with a knife fighting against a God. Hmm…

    With real Gods I mean: ‘the Lord’, ‘Allah’, ‘Jahweh’, and their prophets. Religious battles. Don’t think that I actually believe in them. Religion is (my apologies for the religious) for weak-minded, unstable people who can’t think logically about why certain things happen to them. They’ve never heard about CO-IN-CI-DENCE.

  32. Preston April 8, 2009 at 4:11 am -      #32

    THe master sword and light arrows are meant to destroy evil and i belive the guy is 100 percent . that is my opinion though

  33. Cpt Olimar April 28, 2009 at 2:13 am -      #33

    Morgoth is indeed 100% evil, but the light arrows don’t have infinite power. Just because they work on being of evil does not mean that they can kill any being of pure evil. Perhaps the arrows might have an effect. It doesn’t really matter, Morgoth is evil itself. It is the epic manifestation of evil, something which would certainly devour the hero of time if he only has the triforce of courage with him on top of his items.

  34. FierceDeity888 April 29, 2009 at 10:59 pm -      #34

    I have actually spent a while reading about Morgoth for this. I say that due to him pretty much being the pure essence of evil, Link would eventually fall his foe. Don’t jump to conclusions and get mad at me either. Keep in mind Cpt Olimar that WW’s light arrows will instantly kill evil enemies (of course Ganon is an exception, but all games do whatever to make you actually fight the final boss.) I figure that the light arrows won’t instantly kill Morgoth, but they will seriously damage him.
    Plus with Link’s combination of Chateau Romani and Cane of Byrna, he is immortal. Also the Cane damages anything that gets close to Link with ahem… light. This coupled with the Blade to Evils Bane makes it seem like Link was meant to fight Morgoth.
    Also Link’s never failing ” ability” to find his opponent’s one weakness helps. Add that to the fact that Link has the power of many gods and goddesses and this doesn’t seem like such a one-sided fight for Morgoth after all.
    Please don’t waste your time making insults for which side I take up, especially because I don’t plan on staying on BankGambling past tonight anyways.

  35. kniget June 6, 2009 at 2:47 pm -      #35

    @FierceDeity888
    while your post WOULD be valid IF Morgoth decided not to destroy Link’s very essence, but since he is one of the creators of ‘Earth’/Middle Earth and is the embodiment of evil, holds off the entire population of Middle Earth for an Age, can create life and has fought foes that were much more powerful than 90% of the Zelda games’ villains and still has never been defeated, only caged under the Earth until he is released and rains Hell upon all those who stood against him, i seriously doubt that he would be defeated by one puny little human

  36. Zachalink June 23, 2009 at 2:55 am -      #36

    @FrierceDiety888 good points but reason why light arrows did one hit K.O. Ganondorf is because he him is not evil he just simply possesed by the soul edge. Link can just wish morgoth dead with the Majoras’s mask and the triforce he also can summon creatures with the soul edge. Also link can anihilate him with the great fairy sword. and hyleans are different then elves thepocalypse they have keener eyes a better sence of hearing not to mention they are larger more powerful and experienced then elves they are also more inteligent.

  37. AHEM June 29, 2009 at 2:57 pm -      #37

    Link is outmatched here. Though a mighty hero, this match is beyond his limits.

    Many of Link’s weapons would be more effective against Morgoth than normal weapons, but Morgoth is a Valar, and his physical essence is just too massive for Link to destroy. He’d run out of arrows and magic long before Morgoth took more than minor damage . . . and that’s assuming Morgoth stands still and lets Link attack before he retaliates.

    If Link had the Fierce Deity’s mask, he could probably inflict quite a bit of damage, but in the end will still go down. If he had all three pieces of the Triforce, then this fight would be more of an even match, but he has only one piece. If he’s going up against Morgoth, it should be Link + Zelda + Ganondorf vs. Morgoth.

    Maybe we should see Link vs. a Balrog or Link vs. the Witch King, but the Hero of Time has bitten off a little more than he can chew in this one. While Link has a lot of powerful items and abilities, all that doesn’t mean much when he’s going one-on-one with a divine entity like a Valar.

  38. John Anen October 22, 2009 at 5:03 pm -      #38

    Link vs. a DARK GOD?! This is ridiculously lopsided! Like, Galactus vs. Xena lopsided! Link doesn’t have the power necessary to defeat a being like Morgoth. He’d better stick to smaller monsters and leave these kind of fights to Ghost Rider.

    Morgoth for the BankGambling award.

  39. atlantis January 16, 2010 at 7:54 pm -      #39

    Personally I don’t think Ghost rider can take on morgoth

  40. cjrodarte March 4, 2010 at 3:31 am -      #40

    i think so too.

  41. asdf12345 March 4, 2010 at 7:00 pm -      #41

    Who hates Link enough to even suggest this fight?

  42. cjrodarte March 4, 2010 at 7:58 pm -      #42

    maybe a lotr fan or someone who likes seeing link get his but kicked, well I do lol.

  43. theobserver March 4, 2010 at 8:03 pm -      #43

    Giygas (Earthbound) vs Morgoth?

    ._. on the debating note…there’s no way Link’s winning this…even though everyone’s pretty much already said that.

  44. Caelan April 2, 2010 at 8:01 am -      #44

    all i can say is good luck link but your tottaly doomed you will be gone in seconds…………………….. HAHAHAHAH lol

  45. wtf bomber April 4, 2010 at 8:36 pm -      #45

    Morgoth: *sighs, shaking the foundations of the world* im bored
    Link *annoying yell*
    Morgoth:*blinks, Link is erased from all meaning of time/existence, he never existed.*
    That was…….diferent.
    I agree. Link: certificate of death no. 2, morgoth BankGambling award.
