Who was the best archer/warrior between Karna and Arjun?

I have seen that different people tend to have different opinions. So lets hear your opinions.
Who according to you was better, Karna or Arjun?

Arjun did over power Karna on many occasion.
1) In Draupati's swayamvar
2) In Virat yudh, where Arjun beat the whole kaurav army involving Karna.

Karna overpowered Arjun on many occasions too. To such extend that Lord Krishna himself had to intervene to save Arjun.

Karna had two curses on him and one can say that even emotionally he was not in right frame of mind during war (fighting with brothers)

So what say? Your opinion?

Re: Who was the best archer/warrior between Karna and Arjun?

Well, I see its that time of the month when kafirs introspect their gods, to claim ‘our religion is so flexible that we can question even gods and mould it to whatever suits us’.

Jo jeeta wahi sikandar, baaki sab bandar. So arjun was best.

Re: Who was the best archer/warrior between Karna and Arjun?

Karn was the better archer. Not only he reached where he did in adverse circumstances but also he was 'tricked' every-time there was an opportunity to prove his superiority. If he was not better, there was no reason for Arjun to eliminate him while he was not ready to fight.
Some interesting stories:
  • During the war, arjun shoots at Karn's chariot and it moves back several feet. karna does the same and arjun's chariot moves back fraction of a foot. Krishna applauds Karn. Arjun asks Krishn "When I shot at him, his chariot moved back several feet and when he shot at me, mine moved back a little. But u appluaded him and not me. Why?" Krishna tells him "I, the lord of trilok, am the sarathi of your chariot and Pawanputra is atop your chariot with the mountain in his hands. There is no comparison between what Karn did and what you did".
  • During the war, Karn spared every pandav once [except Arjun]. He had promised Kunti that, given a chance, he will not kill anyone except Arjun. Pandavas won bcoz karna spare yudhisthir. It was all Lord's gameplan.
Not too difficult to conclude who was the better archer.

Re: Who was the best archer/warrior between Karna and Arjun?

There never was any competition that proved who was better archer. Who was better could be proved only by a contest and not by outcome or performance in a war.

Re: Who was the best archer/warrior between Karna and Arjun?

KARNA!!! wheres the freakin doubt???!!!!

Karna was the better archer,smarter than all 5 pandavas combined, the true shatriya and the better son.

Really speaking if Krishna didnt have to make the dharma point, he would have endorsed Karna himself.

Agree whole heartedly!!

I think the whole Mahabharat story was about how Karna got ripped off. The others are just bit players in the saga. Whne you look at the Mahabharat from that angle .. the tragedy of Karna .. and not the victory of Dharma, you get a totally new perspective on things.

True that .. Pitamah was screwed royally as well. Not to mention Draupadi .. Actually, when you look at it .. every character in the whole epic was screwed. Except for Krishna, of course. But he was the only one who had any kind of control or choice of his actions.

Karna got ripped off... Karna got ripped off What tf about Ekalavya He no doubt was the best archer of the times... way better than both Arjun and Karna. He could freaking shoot multiple arrows into a single mouth... that too on a running dog. Wonder if anyone can achieve anything like that in the entire history of mankind... using any weapon

Eklavya got screwed too .. but all he had to give was his thumb. He cheated, got caught .. and paid the price.

Karna gave everything away. He was cheated at every turn. Including the so called "god" had to resort to fraud to defeat him. He was cursed for no fault of his .. etc etc etc. Karna was by far the victim. Only person more victimized probably was Bheeshma. He could not even fukk.

I think you are derailing the topic... which I thought was not who got tricked the most but who was the best archer. My vote is for Ekalavya. And as for the question in the title... who was better between the two... Karna.
