GRRM himself has stated that Arthur Dayne and Barristan Selmy (in his prime) are two of the best fighters of all time. He also stated that Jaime is the top guy at the start of the series.

In the series, we've also seen that Dothraki aren't skilled at killing knights in armor, Jaime being the best knight in the realm is far above guys like Jorah who could kill a bloodrider. Drogo stands no chance in this fight.

Akasha 10/10

Lets not confuse the book movie version. In the books Akasha was able to fly around the world very quickly and killing all vampires she sensed using the fire gift.

Also the older vampires in this series are so strong they have to be careful not to bump into humans or risk crushing them like tin cans

@turoksonofstone: i know he isn't as powerful but he has many of the same abilities. Lestat was just playing human too. All of the powerful vamps had to concentrate hard to no crush them like tin cans.

I actually believe this is spite in the other direction. Anne Rice's upper level vampires are more powerful than any Dracula that I've ever seen. Akasha is superior to Dracula in every way by a mile and Lestat (along with others like Marius) is a creature in her image. There are several vampires in that series who are even more powerful (Marius, Maharet, etc.), just basing on feats that I've seen from Dracula over the years, he's not on this level. Armand vs. Dracula might be a better battle.

I'm new here and this is an old thread but I couldn't resist since Anne Rice's vampire books are my very favorite.

Lestat wins this one quite easily. He could kill Dracula using just his mind if he wanted, the oldest vampires in Anne Rice's series are the strongest vampires that I have seen. Dracula IMO simply isn't on this level.

As for Lestat being able to walk in the sunlight. The sunlight hurts him but it can't kill him, we see this in the books where he goes into the sun and basically gets really tan. Older vampires like Marius, Mael, Maheret, Akasha, etc. can't be killed by the sun or fire. We've seen this time and again; Mael attempts to kill himself in Memnoch the Devil by walking into the sun but it won't kill him. Maheret walks through fire in Blood and Gold. Marius survives fire in Blood and Gold. Mael survives being beheaded in Blood and Gold.
