Bout of Books: Bookish Battle Royal Challenge

Welcome Fantabulous Readers!
As part of the Bout of Books, I'm going to be participating in the Bookish Battle Royal and plot dearly loved fictional characters against each other. This was originally created by My Life in Books.
The rules are simple:
1. Choose three or more fictional characters as combatants- they can be picked randomly or themed.
2. List two-three strengths and weaknesses of each contender.
3. Determine who would come out victorious and explain why.
4. Link in the comments below or tweet about the challenge using the hashtags #bookbattleroyal and #boutofbooks

I'm going to twist it up a bit and do two rounds, one for males and one for females.

Round One- Males



And the winner is...

Tobias "Four" Eaton

As much as I was rooting for Percy to win this battle, Four was the obvious winner. Despite his personal insecurity and stubbornness, Four is simply better suited and more trained for fighting. His ability to wield a gun and perform hand to hand combat would be more beneficial against these characters. He would easily manipulate Percy and take advantage of his excessive loyalty. Out of the three contenders, he's the one who has the least amount of people he cares about. Percy has his whole slew of friends, while Gale has his entire family. Four's stamina and intensive fighting skills, coming from Dauntless would help him win. 

Now onto the females. 

Round Two- Females



And the winner is *drum roll please*....

Annabeth Chase

This may have been one of the hardest decisions I've had to make just because all of these characters are so strong. Although my decision may still have been biased because of my infatuation with the Percy Jackson series. Annabeth has the intelligence to outsmart Katniss, who already seems on edge mentally. Although I think Annabeth and Tris are fairly tied up, fighting skill wise, Annabeth, being a daughter of athena, would most likely outsmart Tris, most likely by taking advantage of Tris's selflessness. 

And that was the Bookish Battle Royal Challenge! Let me know in the comments who you think should win!
