You don't just become a Rajput -- you're born one. 'Rajput' literally means 'Son of a King'.
— Gugun Deep Singh, Sikh martial artist and historian

The Rajput (literally "king's son") were members of one of the major Hindu Kshatriya (warrior) groups. They enjoyed a reputation as fearsome warriors. Even today many of their descendants serve in the Indian Armed Forces (in the 'Rajput Regiment'), and a number of people with Rajput ancestry serve in the Pakistani Armed Forces as well. Their homeland, now known as Rajasthan, in Northwest India, made them the first line of defense from western invasions by the Muslims, and from northern invaders like the Mongols. Eventually, the Rajputs were conquered by the Mughal, partly because during the war between them, many Rajput chiefs would join the Mughals.

He relases an arrow but the Rajput stops it with his sheild, anoother comes flying and hits the Rajput in the side but it falls to the ground, being able to get through the Rajput armor. The Samurai get's ready for another shoot but a chakram hits him in the helemt knocking him off kilter. The Rajput throws another, this time cutting the bow's string. Seeing his weapon is now useless the Samurai picks up his Yari and charges the Rajput. The Rajput takes out his Aara, swinging it at the Samurai, keeping him at a distance. The Samurai thrust's his spear and the Aara wraps around it, seeing that he's got the Rajput's weapon tangiled, he stabs his spear into the ground and draws his wakizashi, and charges forward. The Rajput takes out his katar and catches the first swing and deflect it to the ground, strinking the Samurai with his sheild. Rolling to recover the Samurai tries again, the Rajput catching it again but this time the samurai is ready, he twist's the sword around, twisting the Rajput's hand forcing him to drop the Katar.

The Rajput drops his sheild and draws his khanda, the Samurai rises drawing his katana. The samurai charges forward, the Rajput deflect it and strikes back but the Samurai moves out of the way before the Rajput can land a blow. The samurai uses the opening and slashes the Rajput along the side. However the Rajput's armor makes it ineffective. Taking another swing but the Rajput manuvers around the Samurai cutting the back of his legs drawing first blood, making the Samurai fall to his knees. The Samurai looks up at his opponent, the Rajput raises his sword and takes the Samurai's head off his shoulders. Rasing his sword in victory he lets out a loud victory cry.

Expert's Opinion[]

While both are highly trained warriors, the Samurai was poorly equipped to fight anyone other than another Samurai. The Rajput's exotic weapons and having to deal with a larger varity of enemies gave him the edge in a battle of near equals.

Winged Hussars: Grey Grey Grey Grey Grey Rajput: Green Green Green Green Green

In the Indian plains, five polish Winged Hussars are walking and hoping to take over the country. Suddenly, a steel ring flys by one of the knights. They turn and see five Rajput Warriors, defending their home turf. The two sides charge at each other, and the hussars make the first kill by shooting a Rajput with their Flintlock Carbines.

The Hussar stabs back through the Rajput's weaker armor with his lance. Green (3-2) Because the lance is to heavy for him to carry, he swicths to his Saber.

Green (1-0)

The Hussar wipes the blood off his sword, and walks off.

Expert's Opinion[]

The Hussar's far superior firearms and armor, coupled with the fact that the Rajput's armor was not only inferior but particularly useless against the Hussar's weapons, meant that the battle could be ended at a long range before the Rajput could even fight back.

Battle vs. Viking (by Lt.Chard)[]

The Viking walks out into a feild where the Rajput is standing. Seeing the Viking, the Rajput takes one of his Chakrams and throws it at the Viking.

Battle vs. Landsknecht (by Kingjofferyjr)[]

The Landsknecht was growing frustrated. He had been wandering through these forests for over two days and yet he saw no real sign of cizilization. He had been payed generously by the Indian lord for whom he had been fighting for but what use was money when there was nothing to buy? Although he couldn't complain he reflected, his crossbow caught him meals he wouldn't dream of having in his native land. He considered himself an explorer so when a strange animal passed into his sight, he couldn't stop thinking 'when in Rome'.

As he continued to fantasize about various foods, he didn't notice the broad shape emerging from the bushes behind him. The figure brought his hand down to his hip, slowly and quietly drawing a sharpened hoop from his belt. As the man brought his arm up, preparing to throw, the Landsknecht stopped and turned, sensing something was wrong. He looked up just in time to see the Chakram fly towards his face. Relying on instincts and training he ducked, narrowly avoiding the sharp edges. A second chakram caught him unawares, leaving a deep cut on his cheek.

The Rajput smiled to himself as the strange warrior gasped in pain, but his victory was short lived as his opponent leveled a crossbow at his chest. His armour plates just managed to block the arrow head but it had been a powerful blow. He was sent flying out of the bushes, down the hill behind him and into a small plain. He urged himself to stand, pulling the arrow from his chest plate as he did. He looked up at the Landsknecht, crossbow in his hands as he drew back the lever to load another bolt. The Rajput was quick to react, drawing his aara from his back. He ran forward as the European took aim and swung.

The plastic like whip stung as it made contact with his hand. The cross bow was taken from his grasp due to the sheer force of the swing. He jumped to avoid a low blow at his feet before running straight at the Rajput. The Rajput attempted a follow up swing but the Landsknecht was too close to have an effect. He jumped mid run and kicked out with both feet, catching the Rajput on the chest. He sent the man tumbling backwards as he drew his halberd. He jabbed at the Rajput, forcing him back as he advanced He swung his whip again but the man countered with a buttstroke to his forearm using his strange spear. He cursed, dropping the aara as he clutched his arm. He attempted to rush the Landsknecht but he side stepped him and slashed across his back, giving him a deep cut. He ran back and picked up his whip again. He swung desperately but the Landsknecht ducked again and jabbed, barely missing his groin. The Rajput cursed himself for not learning from his mistakes as he drew his khanda. He threw the whip at the Landsknecht confusing him before going in with his Khanda. He slashed downwards with his sword as the man brought his halberd up to block. The heavy sword smashed through the wood with ease and cutting down the front of the Landsknechts armor.

He drew his broadsword as the Rajput advanced. His armies had faced Rajput warriors before, he knew all to well of their skill with swords. He swiped at the Rajput, forcing him back until the man took a jab for his throat. He swept the attack away with his sword before swinging it upwards. The Rajput easily swayed out of the swords reach. They circled eachother, catching their breaths before attacking again. The Rajput swung high but the Landsknecht went low, swinging for his thigh.

The Broadsword just cut the exposed part of his thigh but he kept his composure. They engaged again, more intensely this time. He hacked and stabbed but neither he nor his enemy could land any hits. His forearms ached from the weight of his sword but the Landsknecht was not faring much better. The man slowly brought his broadsword up high but the Rajput saw his chance. He swung low, the heavy blade crashed into the mans ribs. The Landsknecht fell like a rock, his armor was dented and a small trickle of blood escaped from his mouth.

He attempted to stand but a kick sent him back to the ground. The Rajput threw his sword to one side, attaching a katar to his wrist. The Indian warrior stood there, toying with his prey, letting him suffer. He pulled the large ornamental sword from its scabbard, using it as a walking stick. He just managed to raise it, gritting his teeth through the pain. He ran at the Rajput and swung at his head, the man ducked and swiped at his leg. The Landsknecht roared as the pain exploded through his body. He turned in a rage and swung heavily three times, neither strike making contact. On the fourth strike the man countered.

He punched the Katar through the mans cheek and swiped, giving his face the appearence of a bloody grin. The man coughed and moaned but still he stood, unknown to the Rajput that a splinter from the broken Halberd was in his hand. He walked over to the Landsknecht again, to finish him off when the man swung. The man caught the Rajputs arm in his hand and jabbed the splinter through his eye. He screamed in agony as the Landsknecht walked casually over to his broadsword.

He avoided the Rajputs pathetic attempts to stab him with his Katar as he sought to remove the splinter. He swung at the mans arm, his sword severing the mans hand along with his weapon. Before the Indian could scream he swiped across his throat. He collapsed backwards in a series of coughs and grunts as blood filled his mouth. He removed the mans helmet and said a prayer before delivering the final blow to his opponent. His sword penetrated his skull, brain matter spewed out as the Landsknecht collapsed, tired but victorious.

Expert's Opinion[]

Both warriors were very well-trained and had efficient and effective arsenals, but in the end the match-up went to the Landsknecht for their weaponry which gave them minor advantages in close and mid range combat.

Battle vs. Vlad the Impaler (by Quitekaiser)[]

The begins in a dark European forest. Vlad is walking slowly, looking for any enemy invader. The Rajput is walking at a quicker pace, he was uncomfortable in this forerign ground, even though he had been here for at least a month, he much prefered the warm pleasant lands of his native India. Vlad, spotting the Rajput, begins loading his crossbow, as the noise warns his opponet.

The Rajput closes in, coming close within range for his chakram. Throwing the disk with as much force as he could muster. The disk hit Vlad's armor with force, but his armor protected him from the disk, and it bounced off. Finishing the loading process, Vlad lifts his crossbow, and shoots it at the Rajput, and hits the Rajput directly in the abdomen, right over a plate. The bolt didn't force through the plate, but did stop the Rajput in his tracks. Vlad grabs his Halberd, and exploited the element of suprise for a wild lounge to kill his fierce enemy. The Rajput grabs his Tabar and counters Vlad's attack, and for several moments, they circled around each other, trying to hit a weak point.

Twisting the hook around the Rajputs polearm, Vlad pulled the the tabar away from its wielder, and was about to brain the Rajput. When the Rajput rolled away, and grabbed his Khanda. Begining the deadly twist, the Rajput charged Vlad. Using the Halberd to block, Vlad droped it, forcing the Rajput off balance.

Running away at top speed, Vlad disapears into the forest. Swearing the Rajput set about searching for Vlad. As the Rajput jogs past a bush, from which Vlad jumps out, and fires his Hand cannon. The round grazes the Rajputs shoulder, forcing him to drop his Khanda.

Desperately, the Rajput throws a Chakram at Vlad, atempting a neck shot. The Chakram again bounces off of Vlads armor as he closes in. The Rajput pulls his Katar out, as Vlad draws his Kilij. Vlad dodges the first three punches, and pushes the Rajput back with a strong slash with his Kilij. The Rajput tries to launch onther offensive, but is stopped when Vlad picks up his Hand cannon, and uses the spike. The spike goes into the Rajputs leg.

Refusing to give up, the Rajput kept going, and stabbed his Katar into Vlads gut. The katar hardly passed through, but a series of follow up blows completly ripped out Vlads organs. With one final punch, Vlad lay at the Rajputs feet, dying. Smiling, the Rajput screams as loud as he could, and walked away from the body.

WINNER: RAJPUT WARRIOR

Expert's Opinion[]

The Rajput won out because while he didn't have the better weaponry he was much better trained and physically fitter. Vlad's insanity worked against him as it made him do reckless and stupid things.

Expert's Opinion[]

Both were though fighters,but the Knight took a narrow victory thanks to his armor,halberd and crossbow.While the Rajput was more agile and his katar was effective,it still cannot compete against the halberd or the plate armor
