  • Unless the samurai is some kind of superhuman so he could dodge the bullets the "gun fighter" would win. Disarm them both and make chances fair and the "gunfighter" will be knocked out faster than you could count to 3 😂

      Actually this is a great idea. xD Get rid of the gunfighter's guns --- but also the samurai's katana and other swords --- and just have the samurai and gunfighter fight with their bare hands. :D Then we'll see!

      @nfigure yeah it's pretty obvious who's gonna win then though 😪 In ninjutsu my Japanese friend taught me how to kill someone with 1 grip via pressure points lololol never used that though but a person who knows those techniques can be incredibly dangerous unarmed - and I am willing to bet my ass that the samurai learned those.

      Is it like that Vulcan death grip? xDDD

      Issues finding things explaining a scenario with a cowboy against a samurai. Only thing I could find was an elite gun fighter vs Elite Knife fighter. What they have explains is that if the gunner doesn't move then he's in big trouble but if he rolls around and moves more often he will have the upper hand.

  • This Guy: vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/.../latest

    Because he's like a mix of Samurai, sword carried on the back and he's also a gunfighter from the old west.

    Now back on topic, depending upon the environment, distance, skills, luck, patience, how much ammo the Gunfighter has and depending upon if he also has MORE THAN a Single gun, and whether or not the Samurai can throw his swords or blades, or whether or not have a crossbow or bow and arrow, I'm sure samurais have ranged weapons as well. But the odds would still be greatly in the favor of "The Guy With The GUN", especially if the Samurai does not have anything he can really use to reach at the gunfighter.

    All because, "the gun is the best defense."

  • Some samurai used muskets but would probably still be dead before he even got to point it against a skilled gunslinger.

    Only case I could think of samurai prevailing in that case is because samurai are apparently a bit insane and ready to die at any moment (at least the more romanticized version of the samurai, not all were like this). So he might take a few rounds and still go kamikaze on the cowboy charging at him and then die after swinging his sword.

  • Samurai, because they are faster, more dexterous and precise. Samurai had throwing knives like these, they could kill old west gunfighter before they would manage to draw a gun: http://www.edgeimport.com/images/97618480631.jpg

  • considering that the use of guns sort of eliminated the effectiveness of the samurai i'd have to say the gun slinger. i'd like to choose the samurai but even a great samurai can only avoid so many bullets

  • The samurai would be dead before he could react. I've seen videos of a man slicing bullets with a sword, but you have to be pretty special to be able to do that. Your average samurai wouldn't pull it off.

  • According to history books, some Samurai used matchlock weapons. Samurai were trained in various arts of war. So the samurai with a gun would probably win.

  • Even am idiot who's never used a gun before but knows how it works would win against the most skilled fighter in the world if he has a gun. There is just no competition. The only thing that might hinder him would be an unsteady aim and fear to shoot.

  • It would depend are they in a forested area are they dueling does the samurai have a bow is he on horse back etc, etc.

    Not really as simple as yes or no to many variables.

      Here is the thing, the Terrain wouldn't matter cause it would give a gunfighter an advantage either way.
      A gunfighter would be familiar with the primal forests of the rockies, the harsh deserts of the southwest, and the plains.

      Which is why most gunfighters carried a rifle as well, the sharps was very popular for a reason

    • 3mo

      Doesn't change what I said though lol, the location would play a big part.

      Also this match up is kind of weird matching up a long range fighter agaisnt an almost exclusively short range one.

      Pirate vs Gunslinger would have been more interesting.

  • It obviously depends. . . is he a well trained Samurai wielding a legendary blade worthy of his name?

  • Modern gunslingers can slip leather in seconds and hit the target and they aren't even as good as some of the legendary gunslingers of old. The Samurai would win if they were able to flank him and sneak up (Limiting the time to pull a gun) but if it was a duel, ten paces and such, gunslingers win every time.

  • The Samurai would throw his sword at the Gunfighter as he fires his gun. The sword will hit the bullet and it will ricochet back to the Gunfighter's head, killing him instantly.

    He'd be on horseback sixty-yards-away pumping arrows into the gunslinger from his Yumi bow before the guy ever knew what hit him. The Samurai are too well trained with the bow.

  • Well.. gunslingers used to turn around and walk a few steps away from eachother before aiming. While the gunslinger is walking away, the samurai will chop his head off. So the samurai ftw
