Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

If it were a comic, Boba wins. The only time Predator ever beat anyone in any media was against aliens.
Judge Dredd, Batman, Superman, Tarzan, etc. They had to win, and this wouldn't be any different.

Now if it actually happened, Pred wins or it's a tie.

Pred skins wookie, gets a new rug.

If it were a Jedi, the cloaking device wouldn't help. But I'd only give the advantage to a Jedi Master.

Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

A guardian jedi could.  They can fight blind-folded, and block anything a Predator could throw at them.  It's all about the lightsaber.

Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

Never heard of a Guardian Jedi. I'll have to look it up I guess.

Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

I probably know more about predator here then any one else i was a pred fan way b4 fett. Sure a jedi "gaurdian" could cirtainly be lethal to a predator, the gaurdien would still never stand a chance. A predators shots can not be bounced back by a light saber the hit a target and give of a strong electric charge, some stun giving the predator extra time to take them down. play avp2 u'll see sure its against aliens and not jedi but it proves that the weapons stun and give time to attack.

Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

Guardian Jedis use the blue sabers and focus on combat (a KOTOR reference).  Sentinal Jedis use yellow and concentrate on Force powers (like Battle Meditation).  Consular Jedis, such as Yoda, strive for a balance between the two, as the color suggests.

Those shoulder cannons can only fire so fast, and if a lightsaber can absorb/deflect Force Lightning, then any electrical shots should be easily managed.

I've played AVP and didn't notice any stunning effects on the Aliens from my blasts.  Not even from the pistol, which worked best against them.

My money's on Kenobi all the way.  tongue

Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

the plasma pistol stuns it doesnt shoot strieght at a target it goes for the feet, and it could not be deflected cause the energy would explode. if the predator did loose self destruct of him and his ship would definitly kill every thing within 300 miles or more depending on the rank of predator, higher the rank the bigger the explosion.

Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

Boba has an anti-vehicle homing missile. A Yautja could not survive that.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

To finish with Jedis, lightsabers can be thrown (destroying guns), and guns can be taken with the Force.  Self destruction was survived by Arnold.  Perhaps that computer could be rendered harmless somehow, after the Yautja's head is removed.

Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

Dont underestimate a predator! sure a light saber can be thrown so what? predators got a tracking disk, disk bombs, throwing stars, stunners, nets, LAUNCHING WRIST BLADES those would be kinda hard to deflect seeing at they arent made of light energy. Just cause you like the jedi more doesnt meen they can actualy take a predator. say a predator aims for the handle of the light saber destroys it? do you think jedi still stand a chance? a sith could not a light jedi.

Re: Boba Fett vs. Predator

I didn't quite understand this: "a sith could not a light jedi."  Do you mean that a sith couldn't defeat a predator or a jedi?  I don't like the jedi more than either Fett or the predators, it's just that a powerful enough jedi, such as Kenobi or Skywalker, is the perfect fighter without needing anything more than one (specific) weapon.  I mean this without any personal bias.  Keep in mind that I'm not intending this claim to include all jedi, but only the ones focused on combat, (the Guardians), or the most accomplished of the other types.  Can you see any predator defeating Yoda, Mace Windu, or Darth Sidious?

Your point about the difficulty of defending against something other than a lightsaber blade is interesting, and I've given this a lot of consideration already.  My theory on how alternate attacks, such as kicks or strikes to the weapon's handle, penetrate a jedi's defenses is that it is a non-vital action taken when a jedi's focus is on the vital threat of the lightsaber's blade.  When blasters are fired, a jedi defends against those because they are the most threatening, but it would be child's  play to do the same against something physical such as an arrow, bullet, or any other physical profectile.  (Luke should have parried Fett's lanyard cable in ROTJ, but it looked cool that he cut it after it wrapped him.)  If the predator's Smart Disc were used against a jedi, it might get chopped in half, but I'd doubt it would hit.  This opens up the question of which of the predator's weapons, if not all of them, are able to withstand a lightsaber.  In KOTOR, there are metallic swords with a "kordova (sp?) weave" that can repel an energy blade, and they aren't always vibroblades.  I believe that vibroblades are always made of this metal.  It would be a safe assumption that the seemingly indestructable material of the predator's weaponry ("that doesn't show up on our periodic table") would have the same ability.

I don't think a strong jedi would have much trouble with anything in the predator's or Fett's arsenal except perhaps the area effect weapons that stun or blast (grenades or bombs).  It would be one hell of a fight, to be sure.

Getting back to Boba, I'd like to consider which of his weapons would be effective on a Yautja.  I think we can rule out the lanyard due its strength and the speed which it could slice the line with a wristblade.  What about the flamethrower, blaster carbine, and rocket darts?
