CW Composite League Ninja respect thread

No Caption Provided

The League of Assassins are often the laughing stock of live action fodder. This will be a thread to shine some light on how they were originally depicted in the earlier seasons of Arrow and what they were actually capable of.

It was an urban legend I heard about in Afghanistan from a tribal leader, he claimed there was an ancient sect of assassins, deadly warriors, who killed and vanished like ghosts.

Diggle

The League of Assassins was founded in 1013.[3] Its purpose is to hunt down and kill people deemed a danger to society and the world at large, and has done so for many years, resulting in thousands of deaths. All of its members go through a harsh and bitter course of training that leaves its trainees either dead or at the peak of human physical condition, so much so that they rarely feel pain itself. They are trained in the arts of swordsmanship, archery, stealth and killing in both the quickest and most discreet methods or the most painful and drawn out ways. They are also trained to be able to escape from any prison.

- Arrowverse Wiki

We were trained by the league, no prison can hold us.

Malcolm Merlyn

Combat

The League were depicted as great and lethal fighters in the earlier seasons of Arrow. Sara makes a remarkable comment on just how lethal and dangerous they are.

I was trained by the people who make the special forces look like a kindergarten class.

Sara to Diggle

This section will focus both on their h2h abilities as well as their archery.

One fodder League ninja was actually keeping up with Oliver and Sara simultaneously, he even got the better of Sara and a cheap shot from Lance was needed to subdue him.

In Sara and Oliver's second encounter with Al-Owal, Sara is attacked by two league ninjas and eventually she needs help from Oliver as the assassins are able to match her skills and tag her with their weapons.

An assassin disarms and deals with Lyla Michaels in close quarters, she is a decently skilled combatant herself.

An Assassin takes out over half a dozen drug dealers armed with machine guns with no problem.

The assassins are essential in helping Oliver deal with Slade's mirakuru army, the assassins deal with an entire army of soldiers, showcasing great archery skill.

Chase, who wasn't a high ranking league member, was able to whoop both Roy and Thea's asses. One could argue that since he was a named assassin he shouldn't really count as fodder. But he should be representative of your average fodder ninja, named or not.

Speed

Speed is a key element of being a ninja, and the League members are ridiculously quick.

CW Dark Arrow Respect Thread (Earth X)

This is a respect thread for the Earth 53 or Earth X version of Oliver Queen. This respect thread was originally supposed to be a part of the main respect thread for Oliver Queen, but doesn't look as if that will be ready to about 2042, so I decided to make this it's own thread. I swear I made this thread before, but I can't find it.

Dark Arrow is a equal to his earth 1 counterpart in all aspects, and should logically be able to pull off every feat earth 1 Oliver can as well.

Top 10 Best fight scenes in CW's Arrow

This is a ranking of some of my favorite fight scenes from CW Arrow. No fights from season 4 will be included on the list. I'm still doing my best to pretend that season 4 never happened.

No Caption Provided

I've also tried to avoid "boss fights" between or heroes and the big bad as well as 1 v 1 fights. I've stayed clear of mid-season finale and season finale fights as they are to be ranked another time. I've ranked these fights mainly based on choreography, camera work and the epicness of the ass kicking. Story telling and emotional impact could also be a factor, but not the main or deciding factor as to where the fights rank. Most of the fights will be against opposition that is often referred to as "fodder" as this list will not focus on 1 v 1 duels.

I will not break down the fights in great detail, but rather give a short description of the fights. Let your eyes do the rest.

Let's jump right into the action:

10. Arrow season 1 episode 2 "Honor Thy Father"

So simple, but yet so good. This is a fairly short, but well choreographed fight which perfectly displays just how brutal and ruthless Oliver is.

9. Arrow season 6 episode 2 "Tribute"

One take, no stunt double, raw strength, not reliant on skill or technique. This is one beautifully executed fight scene. A kitchen fight can never go wrong.

8. Arrow season 5 episode 11 "Second Chances"

Not often we get to see Oliver like this. In pure gun fu style, John Wick Oliver makes his way through a dozen armed man with his handguns. Long takes and well hidden cuts make for and engaging and awesome fight scene.

7. Arrow season 1 episode 21 "The Undertaking"

A highly secure, underground casino full of guards armed with automatic rifles against a guy with a bow and arrow? It's cute that they thought they had a chance. This fight scene really displays just how dangerous a pissed off Oliver Queen really is. A mixture of archery and close quarters combat, with a bulls-eye trick shot to top it all of.

6. Arrow season 1 episode 12 "Vertigo"

A drugged Oliver Queen on a mission without his bow and arrows makes for an excellent fight scene. Oliver is still wrecking fools when he can barely stand on his feet.

5. Arrow season 2 episode 18 "Deathstroke"

Oliver is not messing around. A pissed of Green Arrow makes his way, effectively and brutally, through two dozen of Deathstroke's hired mercs. Nothing is stopping a pissed of Green Arrow looking to save his sister. The scene is beautifully choreographed, even while fighting 3 or 4 opponents at the same time, he keeps them all busy. None of them are playing the waiting game, which so often happens when one character is suppose to fight off a number of opponents.

4. Arrow season 5 episode 11

Some people will claim that this fight is a bit ridiculous and cheesy. This doesn't focus on Oliver's mastery of hand to hand combat, nor does it contain and mind blowing camera work. But let's be honest, this is a Green Arrow fight done right.

3. Arrow season 1 episode 21 "The Undertaking"

Probably the most high paced and intense fight in the entire series. Probably also the most well known and most debated fight scene from Arrow on the Vine.

2. Arrow season 6 episode 10 "Divided"

A nearly 40 seconds long one take with a handheld camera puts you right in the middle of the action. Not only is the camerawork outstanding, but the choreography is really well done as well. A truly amazing piece of television if you ask me.

1. Arrow season 6 episode 5 "Deathstroke Returns"

One take. Deathstroke. Bad ass. Perfection. Don't really know what to say.

It is evident throughout the fight that Merlyn is the superior archer of the two. Merlyn is able to tag the Arrow three times, whereas the Arrow couldn't tag Merlyn once.

Merlyn displays his archery skills against League ninjas in Nanda Parbat.

Merlyn displays great archery skills while he is fighting side by side with Oliver in 5x22. Merlyn takes out multiple A.R.G.U.S. agents using his bow and arrow.

Merlyn has proved himself capable of fighting mirakuru soldiers as well. (2x23)

Merlyn is capable of bringing Nyssa to her knees in about ten seconds in a sword fight in arrow 4x13. (Video is dubbed in Italian)

Merlyn is seen "sparring" with Nyssa in ep 4x3. Nyssa states that she wasn't sparring, but actually trying to fight Merlyn. Merlyn is clearly portrayed as the superior combatant. Merlyn disposes easily of Nyssa in their encounter in the tie in comics.

In Merlyn's first proper h2h showing against the Arrow, Merlyn really proves himself to be the better combatant. Merlyn is not prepared for this encounter and not geared up, yet he comes out victorious.

Merlyn holds the upper hand even in his final encounter with Oliver in season 1. Oliver is only able to win by stabbing himself in the shoulder.

Thank you, for teaching me what I'm fighting for.

Ollie to Merlyn 1x23

After Merlyn loses his hand, is he still capable of fighting some of the best fighters in the Arrowverse. It is not known whether losing his hand has effected his fighting ability in anyway. Due to some inconsistent showings after losing his hand has led me to believe that there is a difference between fighting with a prosthetic rather than his real hand.

Merlyn fights on par with Damien in Legends 2x10. Damien can be interpreted as having a slight upper hand, but there is not too much to differentiate the two.

Merlyn also fights on par with Sara after losing his hand as well. Merlyn does ultimately lose the fight, but he puts up a good fight. Merlyn even had the upper hand until he started with his typical villain monologue.

Training

Not only is Merlyn a phenomenal fighter himself, but also an incredibly good teacher. Merlyn is responsible for training Thea into the very capable fighter that she has become.

Merlyn also trains Oliver for a period of time. He is seen training both Ollie and Thea in a 2v1 fight and still schools them.

No Caption Provided

Ra's is probably the most honorable and the most deadly villain ever introduced in Arrow. Unfortunately for him, his arrogance was his downfall.

This will be a RT on the shorter side due to his limited feats.

H2h Combat

It is unknown how long Ra's has been alive for and how long he has been the leader of the League of Assassins. We know that he was the leader of the League in the 50's due to ep 1x9 of Legends of Tomorrow. But we have evidence that Ra's has been alive for a way longer time than that. Ra's states in arrow 3x15 that he met an illusionist in Vienna in 1854. That happened when Ra's was already a grown man. We know therefore that Ra's was born way before 1854. This means that Ra's has at least 160 years of experience, as we know that he started killing people at the age of 11.

Ra's longevity and League training has made him the most skilled and the most deadly assassin in the world.

Ra's is not only the leader of the League, both also a teacher. Ra's is seen giving some assassins instructions on how to improve their swordsmanship while he shows Oliver around Nanda Parbat.

Only the student can defeat the master

We get a peek of his abilities in a training session against some ninjas. Ra's is able to effortlessly cut down 8 ninjas, killing them all without breaking a sweat.

We get a true look at his abilities in his fight to the death against Oliver. Ra's doesn't just win the fight, he makes an absolute fool of Oliver, without any effort what so ever. Brief breakdown of the fight:

Ra's starts the fight unarmed, while Oliver starts with dual swords. The fight starts off with Ra's delivering a punch to Oliver's throat, it happens so quickly that Oliver doesn't have time to react to the incoming punch. Ra's then easily dances around Oliver's attacks and disarms him of one of his swords. After some brief sword fighting and trading of strikes, Ra's lands a kick on Oliver sending him to the ground. As Oliver tries to recover, he is quickly kicked to the ground, again. Oliver then tries to attack Ra's rapidly, but Ra's is easily able to fend him off and cutting his arm. Ra's then easily blocks all of Oliver's incoming hits, even with one arm on his back. Ra's then lands a couple of hits on Oliver and forces him out towards the ledge of the cliff. Oliver then successfully lands a couple of hits, before Ra's counters, punches of Oliver in the throat, slices his side, stabbing him through the torso and then kicking him of the cliff. Bye bye Mr. Queen, you survived longer than most.

A display of how easily Ra's could dance around Oliver in the fight. Oliver legitimately had a tougher time tagging Ra's than he did the Flash. No, I'm not comparing Ra's to a speedster, but damn the man was quick.

No Caption Provided

Ra's displays his unarmed fighting abilities in his encounter with Thea. Ra's is easily able to out skill Thea, even when fighting with one arm on his back.

Another brief encounter where Ra's gets to showcase his unarmed skills is in his fight against Oliver and Nyssa, where he leaves both on the floor and escaping the scene himself.

Ra's has another great display of swordsmanship where he trains Al sah-him. This is a much more experienced Oliver, but he still gets his ass handed to him by Ra's.

Ra's al Ghul's last fight scene is Arrow is his season finale fight Oliver. Ra's arrogance leads to his downfall in this fight. It is also quite possible that Ra's wanted to lose the fight in order to have Oliver take his place. No matter how you choose to view the fight, the fact still remains that Ra's proved himself Oliver's superior even in his downfall. @foxerdes has written a detailed breakdown of the final fight, where he also comes to the conclusion that Ra's is the superior fighter.

Ra's is stated by fight choreographer James Bamford, to be the one true master introduced in Arrow. Ra's fighting style revolves around no wasted motion.

Lastly, you know the dude is no joke when he has Malcolm Merlyn, scared shitless, on his knees, begging. Merlyn has flat out admitted that he knows that he can't defeat Ra's and that he didn't dare cross him.

Physicals

Ra's was through his League training and his access to the Lazarus pit, in peak human physical condition even if he is hundreds of years old.

Top 10 Archers in the Arrowverse

I don't plan to dive deeply into the characters to assess their abilities. I have compiled some feats to showcase their ability though.

Based on my evaluations, this is how I would rank the best archers in the Arrowverse:

Honorable Mentions

Connor Hawke

Connor Hawke
Connor Hawke

The 2046 version of the Green Arrow. Connor certainly knew how to shoot a bow, his draw time/rapid firing of arrows is some of the best we have seen in the Arrowverse, with the exception of the OG Green Arrow himself.

Connor does only have one appearance and not a whole lot of feats, but I figured he deserved an honorable mention.

Talia al Ghul

Talia al Ghul
Talia al Ghul

Miss OverHyped proved herself a very capable archer in the Russia flashbacks. She was able to take out multiple members of the Bratva alone and was accurate enough to pin a man's arm to a wall with a well placed arrow.

Talia certainly knew how to shoot an arrow.

Maseo Yamashiro

Maseo Yamashiro
Maseo Yamashiro

More of a sword-kinda guy, but knew his way around a bow. He was able to take out three assassins withing a couple of seconds with three rapidly fired arrows.

He doesn't have a whole lot of feats to choose from, but a decent archer nonetheless.

Artemis

Artemis
Artemis

Deal with it.

She was able to disarm both of Wild Dog's guns with a single arrow, that is crazy accurate.

Ra's al Ghul

Ra's al Ghul

Ra's was a phenomenal archer, even if he didn't get to display his master of archery a lot. He could effortlessly kill a number of thugs with bow and arrow, while pretending to be the Arrow.

Slade defeats his former partner, Billy Wintergreen in h2h combat. Billy Wintergreen is a master h2h combatant himself, but Slade proves himself the superior of the two.

Slade, even after almost a year in prison, is able to fight both Oliver and Thea. Slade quickly realizes that Oliver has a injured shoulder, and Slade utilizes this weakness throughout the fight.

Slade fights dead even with Oliver at the end of season 2. Slade was also likely weakened due to the effects of the cure.

Training

It is very important to point out just how influential Slade has been in Oliver's training to become the Green Arrow. Here Slade is shown training stick training with Oliver. This is a training form Oliver uses often to train his own recruits.

Slade's training of Oliver is also very evident in Oliver's own fighting style. Oliver often utilizes moves that was taught to him by Slade.

Slade is seen sparring with Shado. (Arrow 1x19) They both seem pretty equally matched and both have moves that they can teach each other.

Physicals

Slade is seen doing various types of pull ups, displaying his amazing athleticism and strength.

Slade is seen carrying an Asian boar that can weigh up to 300kg. The boar he is carrying does not seem to be of that size, but can still weigh well above 100kg. Carrying that boar through the rough terrain on Lian Yu is a great strength feat.

Slade has extremely high pain tolerance, displayed by this instance, where Oliver digs a bullet out of his arm, without being sedated.

Marksmanship

Slade is a highly trained marksman, capable of using about any weapon he is presented with. Slade is moften often seen sporting his trusted handgun. Slade is here seen taking out a bunch of guys in the matter of seconds. Proving himself a way better marksman than Netflix Punisher, that's for sure.

Rag-dolling Oliver, sending him flying a dozen feet into the air with a kick and then punching him a dozen feet into a shelf.

Cyrus breaks a man's neck with one hand. To break a man's neck requires over a 1000 pounds of force.

Cyrus breaks down a huge metal door that is reinforced by steel. Quentin believes it may have been a crane or a forklift that destroyed the door. For Quentin even to make such an assumption speaks volumes of Cyrus' strength.

In Arrow's first encounter with Cyrus Gold, is the latter easily seen to be able to punch through a windshield and even sends Oliver flying through a car door with a single punch.

Cyrus tosses around huge wooden boxes in his first encounter with the Arrow.

Cyrus is also shown to rip the rope of one Arrow's trick arrows.

Cyrus also displays his insane strength in his last encounter with the Arrow, where he tosses the vigilante through a concrete wall.

Durability/Endurance

First off, just to establish just how durable Cyrus really is, we are going to take a look at a statement made by Felicity Smoak. Felicity claims that Cyrus' muscle density is at least 120 pounds per cubic foot, almost the same density as common concrete. In other words, arrows won't do any lethal damage to someone injected with mirakuru and bullets are highly ineffective as well.

Combat

This fight is a great showing for Cyrus as to how he handles combat situations. This is a brief breakdown of the fight/slaughter.

A group of armed police are entering a building where Cyrus was spotted. The fight starts off with Cyrus tossing a saw blade with insane power and accuracy into the back of the first cop. Cyrus then evades a number of bullets while he jumps down between the cops, he pushes one cop into a wall, knocking him out. Cyrus then grabs the rifle of the third cop, kicks a desk into cop number four, that is trying to attack him from behind. He throws cop number three across the room, knocking him out. Everything happens so fast that Quenting, nor the police captain can grasp what's happening. Cyrus takes a high vantage point and kicks a number of boxes down on top of Quentin. Cyrus then imitatively jumps down, picks Quentin up with one hand and slams him to the wall, pinning him there. Cyrus takes a few bullets to the back from the captain and decides to drop Quentin on the floor and approach the captain. Cyrus overpowers him easily and forces him to shot himself in the head, Cyrus then leaves the scene like a badass.

This is also a good showing of him dealing with a highly skilled individual, where he makes short work of the Arrow.
