Versus Verdict: Commander Sheppard Wins

After quite along debate between me and another writer, who will remain anonymous, and of course you guys helped us come to a conclusion. It's obviously Commander Sheppard. He is the ultimate soldier unlike Master Chief who was designed for war. Commander Sheppard had to earn his reputation for being the ultimate badass in the entire galaxy.

Let's look at the guy's rap sheet shall we? Sheppard had a rough childhood in the slums of Earth, and have a gritty edge to his personality. At an early age he became a member of the Tenth Street Reds, one of the most vicious gangs on the Alliance capital. Noticing the error of his ways Sheppard enlisted into the marines at the age of eighteen, in order to avoid falling into the trap of gang culture and poverty. After that though he went on to become one of the most highly decorated marines in the Alliance. He fended off and entire army of Geth, and single handedly destroyed a Reaper from eating the political center of the galaxy. He has died and come back to life! That's not all for him though; he was a sole surviving member of a vicious thresher maw attack and destroyed the beast in the process. Before any of this, Commander Sheppard graduated from an elite human special task force called N7, which is not a special forces in itself like the U.S. Navy Seals. It's a vocational code with "N" meaning designated Special Forces and "7" meaning the proficiency of the soldier. You see we didn't know much about Master Chief prior to the prequel to Halo: Combat Evolved, Halo: Reach. And even then it made the Master Chief seem like a giant pansy.


Sure Master Chief was in stasis, but he needs a team of 6 Spartans to come and save him along with some AI for him in order to survive? Sorry but it seems more like that Master Chief was a damsel in distress from some Disney princess movie rather than some a badass soldier in a story of war.


Master Chief has the capability to defeat Sheppard, but in our opinion Sheppard is smarter and has a more proficient knowledge of tactics. While Master Chief will just go running in head first, Sheppard would have called in the Normandy to get some kind of air support and built a strategy. The Master Chief we know is a running gunner.

Sheppard wins due to his warriors' heart, more experience in warfare and a high proficiency in military tactics. Sorry Master Chief I'm sure you would have put up a good fight.
