  • In episode 11 in season 2, Bellamy had a hard time taking that Mountain soldier down without help.

    And the Guards of Skaikru are easily taken down in season 3 or 4, (When the soldiers were carrying boxes  but still is was easy), and most Skaikru people (like Clarke, Monty, Jasper) can only defeat other factions in a surprise attack (like in season 2) or by luck/weapons.

    I assume its because they were in space and they didn't have gravity like Earth? Or is it just other factions are more skilled?

    • I believe it's because grounders are more skilled in hand to hand combat and gourilla warfare. These skills help mount surprise attacks. The arkers are more trained with guns, yes guns can mow down multiple people but when up against people who use gorilla warfare you are at a disadvantage. I mean when you have multiple people jumping out of trees spearing people your going to be in shock and your not going to instantly ingage in a fight.

      If you look back at season 3 Lincoln was training the arkers to fight grounders. I was kind of disappointed they never expanded on this.

      That's true as well, since they focus on spears and close quarter combat, they would be stronger or at least more skilled.

      I've wonder what would a fight be like between Veteran Sky Soldiers vs. Veteran Grounder Soldiers (hand-to-hand)

      That scene where Lincoln was fighting Bellamy, I thought it was for workout purposes not actually training. Since Grounders and Sky People are close to each other I expect an integrated culture with Soldiers on both sides learning hand to hand combat and conventional combat

    • Yh the skaikru never really had to train for intense physical fights on the ark, they only used the shock batons and rarely guns. So yes skaikru are physically weaker than grounders who have spent years training and fighting and have a environmental advantage, the skaikru members would almost always lose in a physical fight except Batman,......*cough*, *cough*,  ahem, I mean loltavia. Anyways but Skaikru is in no way weaker than the grounders. While not experienced with guerilla warfare, they do have guns, and as pike showed, with well trained men, it's all it takes to decimate the grounders. The grounders on the other hand are skilled fighters and possess excellent environmental awareness, but with skilled gun fighters, the damage will be devastating on the grounders. This is why Indra opted to use the guns by the end when she didn't have the numbers.

      It would depend on the fighters, at that point it won't matter if you're from the sky or grounded, the more skilled and rounded fighter would win.

      But if we take the best both sides have to offer,

      Kane - for skairu, he's just always been showed as the most skilled physical sky member, and even overwhelmed bellamy (this might have been plot related), when he was chipped. Now there is always loltavia, but i didn't choose her for two main reasons, she's uses too much plot in her fights (unrealistic fighting skill), and she hasn't shown sky allegiance for a while now.



      Luna - for grounders. This is undisputed.

      LUNA DESTROYS KANE, and pretty much anyone else on this show dead or alive.

      Luna,




      Lexa

      Roan

      Lincoln. In that order.
