Best Deadliest Warrior Episodes


The Top Ten

1 Spartan vs. Ninja

This episode started it all

Ninjas are the best

It was fantastic... I liked it very much.. It was fabulous..
This episode was the most exciting match...

I like the idea but I was totally one-sided. The nknja had a lot of tricks but when you can't even touch the huy and get hurt every time you attached its only a matter of time in a fight to the death - Poop2

2 Yakuza vs. Mafia

This was just so entertaining. I seriously believed the yakuza would have won. Also the fact that the Japanese contenders and the Italians also started fighting included a personal dynamic. Definitely my favorite.

3 Nazi Wuffen SS vs. Viet Cong

All the weapons were badass. Who the hell wants to fall into a pit of sticks covered in poop? Not only would that be agonizing but also you would die from blood loss and a slow infection. Now with the Nazi's that bouncing betty will blow your legs off!

I liked the comment the german tester said about the pujati stakes, "This is like going to war with the Flintstones!" priceless.

Slight error: It's Waffen SS not Wuffen SS. Still they are ruthless as the Viet Cong soon discovered.

By far this is the most entertaining match up in the history of Deadliest Warrior bar none!

4 Green Beret vs. Spetsnaz

this episode was so intense! I have always asked myself who is deadliest? spetsnaz or the green beret. or any other special forces for that matter. since deadliest warrior is an american program I was so sure they would say the green baret would win just to glorify america, but I guess I was wrong ;) - bigblackdragon

Best episode ever, I knew spetsnaz was gonna win, they are more skilled, in the middle when all green berets were killing all spetsnaz I said yep, spetsnaz are finished but then one spetsnaz managed to kill 4 green beret by himself

The Russian veterans were impressive and clearly knew what they were doing (scary dudes). The explosive knife finale (spoiler alert) was pretty awesome.

No! The Spetsnaz won! My grandad was a Green Beret.

5 IRA vs. Taliban

Both groups are out on the edge, on their own. Have developed their special brand of ingenuity and become totally self dependent. I personally thought the IRA would win but would like to see how the IRA would tackle going into Taliban territory.

ek no.

6 Navy SEALs vs. Israili Commandos
7 William Wallace vs. Shaka Zulu

This was the most accurate outcome, plus it had the best simulation... it was both -a 1000 battles in one as well as an accurate depiction of what would have actually happened had these two met

Nice episode, the weapons were cool and the sim was nice. You got to see a claymore lop off three heads with one swing.

8 Apache vs. Gladiator

The incredible weapons of each warrior and how they used them was awesome and UFC fighter chuck Liddell was there. The massive size and brutal ferocity of the gladiator yet the apaches speed, accuracy, skill and vicious attitude was awesome.

Not sure how realistic this fight was (I don't trust the original simulation software very much--too few parameters), but the action itself was really entertaining.

9 NKOSFD Vs US army Ranger

While many say it was biased, I feel as if this one was one of the coolest fights ever. It showcased the might of both fighters as well as their mentality.

10 Spartan vs. Samurai/IRA vs. Spetsnaz (Back for Blood)

The Contenders

11 Viking vs. Samurai

This was the second episode on the show and it was the best episode because it featured two of the most feared and fearless warriors from opposite sides of the World. It was one of the closest match-ups on the show.

It was interesting to see that how the weapons and armor counter each other. For instance, the Samurai sword looked very impressive until they tried it on a dummy with a Viking chain-mail.

Viking is pretty talented and skilled and he totally did a good job in the fight. It's just that Samurai won because he had better armor, better weapons, and better techniques. Good job, Samurai.

Two of my absolute favorite warrior types, this was one of the very best enacted fights in all of DW. I can't really argue with the outcome, though I think the katana is an incredible weapon (probably my favorite as a two-handed slasher), the Viking sword is an underrated weapon that is incredibly light and strong and a much better stabbing tool.
Probably my favorite fight in all of DW.

12 Jesse James vs. Al Capone
13 Theodore Roosevelt vs. Lawrence of Arabia
14 SWAT vs. GSG-9

This episode was extremely intense, with both sides that were secretive, stealthy, and cool technology.

15 CIA vs. KGB

Just watched this episode tonight, it was awesome. Strongly recommend it.

16 Genghis Khan vs. Hannibal

While I'm shocked that Hannibal didn't destroy his opponent I enjoyed seeing them fiht as I've dreemed of this machup for so l long - Poop2

17 Saint Joan of Arc vs. William the Conqueror
18 George Washington vs. Napoleon Bonaparte
19 Shaolin Monk vs. Maori Warrior

I love the Shaolin and Maori culture and fight styles. I like the viciousness of the Maori and the intense skill of the Shaolin. Great fight!

Spartan vs Ninja was the worst episode... A ninja does not put himself in the open like that. A ninja prefers assassination rather than fighting. A quick blow dart from that tree and the ninja wins... - MeowMix

20 Hernan Cortes vs. Ivan the Terrible

I was surprised that cortez defeated full team by only himself! It was just so amazing.
