Hey /tg/, I have a question.

I know there has been a hundred threads about the subject of knight vs samurai, but my question is slightly different.

To be exact, how could a samurai fight and hopefully defeat an armorer knight? What she would have to do in order to attain victory, assuming both have the same skill?

For what I've read here the armor would be a big problem for the samurai, but also she would be a lot faster.

Thoughs /tg/?

Surrender to him and then stab him in the neck when he's sleeping after ravishing her.

By using one of their primary weapons (Bow, spear, polearm, or arqebus) instead of a sidearm (Katana)

I dunno, but I really like that picture. Although I think it'd look better it the katana's zori was less severe, and the kisaki formed a more rectangular angle.

>> No.27762381


Armor could deflect arquebus shots with no problem, same with arrows. Also knights also used halberds and polearms.

>but also she would be a lot faster.

This would give her victory. Armor is heavy, clunky and helmets make near impossible to see. Assuming she can parry/dodge his attacks he would become tired and sluggish first, allowing her to find the right opening to attack.

>> No.27762418

It's not "no problem"
It might not get through the thick chest plate, but it could penetrate joints and thinner areas, and will leave the knight winded regardless.
Bow won't work unless the samurai gets a lucky joint hit.
Polearms give the Samurai a chance to win, since that's how Europeans beat knights too.

>> No.27762431



Related as fuck.

>> No.27762446

A knight in full gear had less weight on them than modern infantrymen.
Plate armor is fitted to it's wearer and is lighter than chainmail. Helmet sightline depends entirely on what sort of helmet it is (There were hundreds of variations)

>> No.27762451


But the time she takes to load her arquebus and aim would allow the knight to disarm and pin her down. Also, knights used polearms too.

>> No.27762452

I believe you mean to say that you prefer the look of shinogi-zukori swords to shobu-zukori swords.

And you should. shinogi-zukori blades look all kinds of badass, shobu-zukor look like the Japanese tried to copy some crappy shamshir that washed up on their beach.

>> No.27762464

Knights using polearms too does not mean the samurai can't win.
It means it would be an actual fight that could go either way.

Fetishes? Wut mate?

Sure, this might be a bit off, since we are talking samurais, but do you know how ninja's worked? A samurai could easily do the same. Women have done this for ages, because men are generally easy to seduce this way.

This only works if he isn't aware of her as an enemy, of course.

>> No.27762490

Ninja were spies for the most part, not assassins.

>> No.27762505


Ever heard of Agincourt? Armor weights about 50 pounds and often caused heatstroke. Besides the helmet made really difficult to see besides a narrow area right in front of the knight.

Even if it wasn't that heavy it still took its toll on the knight's stamina

>> No.27762527


isn't there a part of the old testament where some important guy selects brave women to go and seduce the enemies captains and then kill them in their sleep after sex?

>> No.27762531

Modern infantrymen carry upwards of 80 pounds on them.
And if it's a one on one fight, the knight won't have a problem keeping an eye on the Samurai.

Care to tell me just where a samurai could find an opening here? Unless the knight is K.Oed he won't stay quiet until she stabs him through the visor

>> No.27762581

Ninja's aren't spies either. They are more of a class in between those two.

They went completely undercover, either to gather information, kill someone, or both. Sometimes even to gain the trust of someone. The "kill" part didn't really need to be with a weapon. It could be poison, or whatever.

Hell, I recall reading a story of a "ninja" chick who had AIDS or something like that, who slept with people to get them killed. Don't remember exactly the disease, but according to the story, it worked.

Samurai wins from being able to control Japanese giant hornets.

>> No.27762689

Well, a knife at the throat of a sleeping guy is using a weapon, though not in a straight up fight.

But yeah, ninja's aren't fighters. At all. Samurai's are a different breed, though if they weren't completely impaired by their lolhonour, they should be able to pull it off as well.

In a realistic 1 on 1 fight, with no circumstances favouring either part, no, the Samurai would lose. As much as I like samurais, and love to play them in my games and such, they simply aren't better than a real knight. I'm a fucking weaboo samurai freak, and I can't see the samurai winning in a fair fight. She needs advantages, and some pretty good ones too.

Samurai were pragmatic. They cared about their honor about as much as knights cared about chivalry.
As soon as they got them, they fell in love with guns. They imported western armor and added a Japanese aesthetic when they found that European plate was somewhat better than their lammellar armor. They used any dirty tricks or improvements they could get.

Because they had to.

It's simple survival of the fittest. Those who valued honour died, and those who could see past that massive limitation, survived, and "evolved" past this.

A Knight would win, unless the Samurai used dirty tricks. Knights weren't even the problem - They lived worlds apart. No, there were plenty of problem all over the place, that meant they had to evolve past their "Sword and honour" shit.

>> No.27762779

Actually, it's more likely than a female knight.
There was a period in feudal Japan where female members of the Samurai caste were expected to be able to defend their homes while the men were out campaigning. That meant full armor, and training with Naginata (Polearm) and Yumi (Bow)

Traditional Samurai armour was clunky as fuck,
Platemail was fitted, so the weight of the armour was supported by the way it was built.

Also a more economical distribution of armour meant plate mail didn't need to weigh that much to achieve more.

The whole "Samurai is faster" thing is pretty much based on Anime, and really depends on the people in the armour rather than the armour itself, and if we are assuming equal skill, and equal natural reflex, then the knight has a speed advantage.
