Ok I'll bite:
Seriously, this is the most overrated excuse for a Dragonborn victory in every match-up. You guys NEVER justify this claim, you just say it in the same fashion a little kid playing Rock-Paper-Scissors screams "METEOR!!!" and then claims he won.
"Who would win in a fight between Dovahkiin and Courier Six?"
We just had that thread. Everyone's response? "Dovahkiin cuz shouts."
Yes, nevermind that Courier Six is the one with the guns and the nukes, nevermind that Courier six runs faster and nevermind that Courier Six has a matrix-like perception of time (Turbo), nevermind that a well-placed shot will knock Dovahkiin on his ass (Shotgun Surgeon or an AMR loaded with explosive rounds), nevermind that even if Dovahkiin were to catch Courier Six within melee range, Courier Six is definitely gonna get the first few punches in (due to his matrix perception of time) and a SINGLE punch can knock the Dovahkiin on his ass (Ranger Takedown) or stun him for 30 seconds (Paralyzing Palm), and nevermind that Courier Six has weapons that pierce directly through armor whereas Dovahkiin does not. How the HELL is Dovahkiin supposed to catch or land a hit on someone who runs faster than him and has a matrix like perception of time, while ALSO wielding a nuclear weapon?
Who would win in a fight between Dragonborn and Champion of Cyrodiil?
What's the general answer again? "Dovahkiin cuz shouts."
Yes, nevermind that CoC has 100% damage and magic reflect, forcing Dovahkiin to rely completely on a bow, nevermind that CoC can achieve ridiculous movement speed with self-magic buffs, nevermind that CoC can STOP TIME and while he's immune to Mehrunes Razor (100% magic reflect, anyone who attempted it would kill themselves) he can attempt OHKOs on Dovahkiin all day with the razor since Dovahkiin CANNOT reflect magic and only rarely reflects physical damage.
Dovahkiin is Sh*t Tier
Match him up against the Nerevarine, the CoC, the Lone Wanderer, the Courier: you name it. The Dovahkiin is the most limited protagonist we've ever had; PERHAPS he could beat the Lone Wanderer. He has less tools than any character we've ever had (save for MAYBE the Lone Wanderer) and is nothing but an axe-swinging barbarian with shouts instead of standard magic, but the shouts more or less have the exact same functions as most magic spells, save for a few.
I usually don't care about comparisons like this, but the lack of logic from the Dovahkiin supporters is astounding. Being able to shout isn't the end-all do-all to fights, especially when most of your opponents have ways to DODGE HITS ENTIRELY while still attacking whereas you yourself do not.
