This was a tough one. I say River Song because, even though Rose Tyler has some big ass guns and kicked a lot of ass, I think River has seen a lot more and knows a lot more. She’d take Rose down, but not without a good fight.
Not really fair.. River Song is a time lord..
Even things up a little, let Rose absorb the Time Vortex again? lol
Rose, she was the first person I´ve seen in Doctor Who and it’s not the only reason why I love her.
Rose definitely. She’s tough: she’s from the British projects, she’s worked her way through universes, seeing only she knows what. River Song, even if she didn’t spend most of her time a girly-flirt, couldn’t take Rose down.
No question here. River Song would definitely beat wimpy, whiny Rose Tyler.
Rose would definitely
beat river’s in a fight
If we are to accept that River Song is Melody Pond, then obviously River would beat Rose, because River was raised and trained to be a weapon against the Doctor, and Rose really wasn’t.
River, by far. As much as I love Rose, River has had tons of training. She is literally a weapon herself.
It would have to be River. She’s literally trained from before birth to kill the Doctor and simultaneously manages to kill him and stop herself from killing him, even if it requires tearing apart time. Even if you don’t like River you have to concede that she’s not a normal human being and that she would kick so much ass.
Um, seriously? River, everytime. She’d have her gun out before Rose turned around. Unarmed, well, River’s part time-lord. Forced her way out of that spacesuit, didn’t she? Much stronger, physically.
Unless of course you mean River Song versus BAD WOLF.
Stupid question. River is a time Lord. Rose is a human.
A better question would be:
Martha Jones Vs. Rose Tyler.
Donna Noble Vs. Amy Pond.
I’d like to say Rose but, I honestly don’t think there is ANY way of her winning, except maybe Dr Who himself saving her. She wouldn’t even be able to turn ‘Bad Wolf’ again, not even on the TARDIS with an open console. River Song is literally the child of the TARDIS, I mean I could be wrong, but I really can’t see it giving Rose the power to kill it’s own Daughter. IF though Rose got the power obviously she wins in less than a second, nothing stands up to ‘uber Rose’, just can’t see it happening. (I did however vote for Rose though, voting’s pretty much over anyway, not like my vote made a difference)
River isn’t literally a child of the TARDIS. It didn’t purposefully create her. River was made through exposure to the Time Vortex, while Rosé became the Tangible equivalent of the Time Vortex. It is my personal belief (as well as many members of the fandom) that Rose been in someway modified by her exposure (Maybe a TARDIS/Human hybrid) and may actually posses some abilities of the Bad Wolf entity. Although Rose was not very “badass”, at the end of series 4, she was pretty cool. Plus Torchwood training would probably give her some skill. But I don’t think Bad Wolf Rose would have left normal Rose without something. So ya… But I do think Rosé would win. Besides everything else, I think Rose has better improvisational skills than River.
I totally agree with you, shtoops
It’s the doctor, dumbo
Rose as Bad Wolf would totally kill erase River Song from existence.
If Rose was being all time vortexy, River would be fucked. Rose FTW
river song anyone who says rose is an idiot rose could never go bad wolf to kill river the tardis wouldent give rose the power to kill its own daugter rose is a wimp and river is part time lord she wouldent know what hit her river song is amazing rose is just a dumb shop assistent, river could kill rose and look good doing it and HELLO River Song is in PRISON for MURDER and she flirted with the doctor by bragging about how many scilance she could kill then kill all of them, she joked with rory that she became an archeologist becouse “i love a tomb” , She made the stone darlek that she belived had killed the doctor beg for mercy then killed it anyway! fuck bad wolf river is totely bad ass she jumped off a fuckin building and threw herself out of a spacelock! she is insane p.s.Angelus_s_baby river was trained from birth to be a phycopath and killer thats why she can afford to be all fabuless and flirty rose wouldent stand a chance
lets remember, it says who would win in a brawl, that doesn’t mean they would have to kill each other.
As much as I love Rose . . . and as much as I prefer Rose/Doctor to River/Doctor . . . River would win. No contest. She can use guns – well, Rose did have that big Dalek-destroying gun in that one episode . . . but River’s like, the Black Widow of Doctor Who so . . . yeah.
Shardoom you are an idiot. It’s the Doctor not Dr who. Duuuuuuuuh
Anyway rose is awesome
I like Rose much better, but she has no chance ….unless she was the time vortex at the time
CHUCK NORRIS WOULD WIN!!!
I adore both Rose and River, but River was trained and conditioned to kill the Doctor. Even her lipstick is a weapon. River could easily beat the crap out of Rose, but she wouldn’t, because she wouldn’t hurt a friend of the Doctor. I’m sure Rose and River would actually be close friends because Rose has 10.5, so there isn’t any conflict in their relationships.
Rose, and nobody else
It’s always gonna be Rose…
i love rose. soooo…. rose
plus rose would win in awesomeness guys
RIVER IS A TIME LORD I think that pretty much tells you who would win =D
You dont need to insult a character to prove your point. Jeez guys, settle down. (Plus it says a brawl not to the death.)
Rose Tyler. And I only have two words everyone seems found of forgetting: Bad Wolf, people.
This is one of the things that keeps bothering me: River gets conceived in the TARDIS, and suddenly, she’s a sort-of Time Lady? Sorry, but after what we’ve seen happen at the end of season 1, and the sheer difference in the exposure to the time energy generated by TARDIS River and Rose received, that doesn’t add up.
As to the “child of TARDIS” part – don’t take the saying so literally. It’s like pretending your country is your mum when someone says you’re it’s child. By the same reasoning, you can say that Rose really did create herself and exists in no world but the one the Doctor does because the Bad Wolf said so (if you want to, you can even add Jackie and Pete having no kids in the parallel world to it).
Got a suggestion for a brawl? Let us know!
