    Jaime Lannister for the lulz. And if he makes it to finals, I've got his back there too.

    But I guess I should try to make a real argument. We hear a lot about how great Dayne is and GRRM even says he's the best swordsman, but Jaime seems to have the better list of feats. All we really know about Dayne is he killed the Smiling Knight and he slipped on a banana peel and lost to Ned Stark.

    Dayne was Jaime's mentor.

    The pupil should always surpass the teacher, if the teacher was any good.

    Jaime.

    Jaime just squired for him, did he not? Dayne was a knight, not a master-at-arms or instructor.

    The problem with these battles is that GRRM said Dayne is the best. Even with all the show-only voters they inevitably come down to Dayne vs Selmy with Dayne winning, because that is how GRRM puts it. Good fun in the early stages, predictable at the end.

    That being said, this would be an awesome fight.

    On a side note, how old was Dayne supposed to be when he tripped and fell onto Ice?

    Except when the teacher is just a far more naturally gifted swordsman and has a superior weapon.

    Uh, not possible in this case. Especially if Dayne has Dawn, which I am assuming he does.

    For a guy who has hardly any back story, Dayne gets a lot of love.

    I'm not buying the Dayne hype. I think we're going to eventually find out that Ned beat Dayne one on one but didn't want anyone to know how good of a swordsman he really is.

    Dayne obviously wins all scanerios.

    Impossible. Ned got owned by Yohn Royce in sparring. Brandon was also known to be a better swordsmen than his brother.

    Arthur Dayne is just legendary:

    Ned didn't go all out in sparring. He didn't want people to know how good he was. Dude hated the limelight and just wanted to live a chill life up in the North.

    You have two people say that he is the best ever. What more do you need?

    It was Ned and Rodrick against Royce and Royce beat them down on their own home turf in front of their children.

    Ned still has pride. He wouldn't let it go down like that if he could've stopped it.

    Even the best men get dragged down by whores. Look at Tiger Woods and Nick Lachey.

    Ned never came off as prideful to me.

    Selmy, who is thought to be the best living swordsman, said that Arthur Dayne was superior to him in all ways. Dayne completely embarrasses the Kingslayer.
