    Gandalf fought:
    Nazgul (Nazgul>>>>Dementors)
    A crapload of orcs (Orcs>>>Garden Gnomes)
    A Balrog (Balrog>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Voldemort)

    Yes, that was a lot of >s, but you get the point.
    Plus, Gandalf is immortal. Every time you kill him, he gets brighter (color) and stronger.

    I agree on the balrog. U-No-Poo seriously lacks the scary factor of a flaming demon.

    Still, all Dumb-ledore had to do in a one on one was to simply A-K Gandalf - it's about one battle, not an overall war ... and simply A-K'ing Gandalf until he gets translucent, attains godhood and vanishes altogether would work too.

    yeah gandalf all the way yo!
    he was once known as gandalf they grey but then died and came back as
    gandalf they white.
    he's a newer version of the grey one
    a wiser, smarter, stronger, cooler, and smexier version
    compete with that old dumbledore with glasses, gandalf doesn't even use glasses he uses his magic.

    Gandolf of course, however, I think Arslan (from JR Tolkien's friend and rival CS Lewis novel) would eat both of them.

    If it was Gandalf the Grey, then D would have an even money chance. He can't touch Gandalf the White. And Gandalf the Maia (or whatever) would fucking own his ass.

    Gandalf would pwn ANY Harry Potter character's ass.
    Voldemort? Pls, the Balrog makes him look like a playground bully at best.
    Now if it was Arslan vs Gandalf, the i would have a problem making a chooice.

    Cheers. :beer

    This is a silly poll. There is no third option.

    "Dumbledore and Gandolf settle down for a cuppa and some lemondrops, like the civilized wizards they are."

    Dumbledore would win. He can apparate(Gandalf wouldn't be able to touch him), has wandless, wordless magic, and is extremely quick. Remember how quickly he was able to thwart Voldemort at the Department of Mysteries?

    Gandalf is certainly not weak, but he lacks the speed and power of Dumbledore.

    I haven't really seen enough from Gandalf for me to put him above most wizards from the Harry Potter series.

    A single Avada Kedavra and Gandalf's done, there are dozens of spells we've seen in HP that could take down Gandalf.

    if i remember correctly that gandalf wasn't allowed from his order to use most of his powers. You have to remember that sauraman was able to cause a blizzard. These guys can control the natural world like it anything. They are far more powerful than any of harry potter wizards. If they could go all out they will own all the other wizards. I'm pretty sure they are on the same level of wizarding power with the Earthsea from the books, not the movie.

    With the HP wizards abilty to apparate instantly to any place they want to be, I fail to see how something like a storm would matter. All Dumbledore would have to do is apparate behind Gandalf and hit him with Avada Kedavra or one of the other unforgivable curses and its over.

    Also the HP universe seems to have thousands upon thousands of protected charms, spells and items, I don't recall all that many items in the LOTR universe that protect against magic.

    One thing to keep in mind, though: Dumbledore is human, Gandalf isn't.

    If Dumbledore dies, he can't come back. If Gandalf dies but without finishing what he's supposed to do, he gets sent back.

    I'll say Gandalf.

    I count dying as a defeat, even if you come back eventually. And even if Gandalf did come back I fail to see what he could do to Dumbledore. Dumbledore seems omniscient at times and no doubt has spells and charms for all occaisions.

    Once again I say one 'Avada Kedavra' and Gandalf is gone, HP has one hit kill spells, LOTR doesn't.

    Both of them are the highest wizards. I personally think dumbledore might know more, but Gandalf is physically stronger.

    Gandalf looks more bad-ass too. And technically he is the orginal(or at least lot nearer to the orginal whoever it might be).

    I think the death spell(adava kedvadfarardda) is the only thing Gandalf needs to watch out for. HP wizards have the teleportation thingie which could prove problematic though.

    I still say Gandalf though. Maybe I'm bit biased.

    The movies are aimed at different audiences, so i wouldn't try to judge them by physical appearance.

    If you read the books however....well it's hard to say just what EXCATLY the writers intended their characters to look like.

    Btw I voted for Dumbledore lol, cause I never finished those LOTR books =\

    Gandalf is an immortal GOD of middle earth, but nerfed. He is technically the same species as Sauron....
