We’re pretty certain that Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings have similar fanbases, so there’s no need to get into which is better or cooler? After all, we’re pretty sure Lord of the Rings and the work of Tolkien was a big inspiration for Thrones, so why compete?
Nevertheless, Thrones creator George R.R. Martin was asked who would win in a fight: Drogon or Smaug. As much as Martin is the creator of Thrones, there was no contest.
“Drogon is a very young dragon,” he told Rolling Stone. “Still barely large enough to get Dany into the sky. Smaug is gigantic, not to mention that Smaug talks and would probably have an intellectual advantage. But Balerion could give Smaug some trouble; they’re more equivalent in the size and ferocity department.”
It would be cool to see a Lord of the Rings / Thrones crossover, like The Simpsons and Family Guy coming together, and have the dragons try to fry each other to death. Oh who are we kidding, that would be so silly, although we can imagine some idiot Hollywood executive trying to put it together, like Batman Vs Superman. (Dragon Vs Dragon? Smaug’s Revenge?)
