• This is a tough one. Merle and Abraham are both very tough, but I think I would have to go with Merle. He's more cold-hearted than Abraham. What do you guys think?

    • Abraham. He was an army sergeant and a sports coach. Therefore, his fighting skills are far superior. Also, Merle's just a dumb redneck.

      Merle was also in the military. Also, what does him being a redneck have to do with Abraham beating him? Merle did also have a knife for a hand, so I'm going with Merle. The better question though is who would win between The Governor and Abraham? Both are from the TV series.

      You have your opinion and I have mine. I just think that Abraham could beat Merle.

      Who knows, maybe after we see some more of ol' Abe, my opinion will change. However, I'm still waiting for an answer to my question about Abraham and The Governor.

      That would be hilarious and a little bit sad. Hilarious because if he recognizes Daryl, comedy and violence may ensue. It would be sad though because that would mean we will never see any current interaction between them. Still, it would be pretty cool.

    • How is this even a question? Merle would kick the shit out of him. Merle handled everyone on the rooftop of atlanta and has been proven to be a high quality combantant being in the military and in a gang. abraham couldnt even handel glenn he was having such a hard time. anyone who says abraham really needs to go back and watch the show, your just brainwashed by fanboyism

    • I think it would be a draw. Both like to fight, and both seem willing to do what needs to be done to win. It would be a helluva knock down drag out.

    • I don't know. One of the episode's show a flashback to when Abe was still with his family in a supermarket. He was plastering a guys face with a can of beans. As the camera pulls back it shows 4 other bodies dead on the floor. Abraham has a psycho side to him. I wouldn't want to fight him when he has a can of beans...

    • Abraham. It doeasn´t matter  if Merle would have both hands, or only one, or knife, Abraham was a sergeant, he had training...

        Loading editor
    • being a sgt does = more h2h training. We don't know what Merle's rank was in the military or even what branch, my guess is the Marines or maybe just regular Army. I presume Abe is regular army, though maybe he is Delta and ex spec-ops which in that case unless Merle was a Marine or Marine Recon (with his tracking ability and past before and after the military its a possibility his sniping and weapons handling was off the charts for a one handed guy). The fact he could do one-handed pushups with a stub is a testament to his strength let alone cutting his hand off and killing a dozen walkers and making it out of a walker infested city.


      Anyway, Abraham is no small potato either, obviously killing several men with a can of beans as an equalizer, even though they were regular men. I think Merle's handling of Martinez vs Abrahams handling of Glenn when neither are in pscyho-killer mode shows that Merle is overall the better fighter. He's smaller but probably nearly as strong. Definitely as fast or faster. Give Abe his knife, or say a Ka-Bar USMC full or Short and Merle has his nasty little bayonett hand and i think Merle takes it, he fought off michone with that thing and she's a full-on badass with that sword, even though she wields it more like western fencing than Iiado. (I'm an amateur fencer, by far from an expert but, anyway, a katana is essentially a two handed saber and can be wielded as such, traditional or western style it works especially for zombies!)

      Lets look at both their fighting records. Lets start with Abraham. He beat up Eugene who literary can't even defend himself and he fought Glenn who he had a hard time even holding down. Just because you like to fight doesn't mean you're good at it.  Sure he was in the military so we know he has some type of training that gives him an advantage over regular characters like Tyreese.

      Now Merle. He took on Rick, T Dog and Morales at the same time while under the influence. He took on Martinez in the pit. He held his own vs Michonne who has a damn sword that can literary slice him in half. He got his ass whooped by four guys unexpectedly, was dazed beatin up and not in his right mind, and still managed to get in a few good hits on the governor before the gov bit his fingers off like a bitch. The Gov did not defeat merle, his henchmen did and he just finished it. Merle also has military training and as we know punched a sargent in the face knocking his teeth out. Hes spent time in and out of jail (possibly prison as well). 

      Merle has all the advantages over Abraham in a fight. I think Abraham would put up a decent fight due to his military background but in the end is no match for merle.

      Interesting thought, if you missed him fighting off Rick, Glenn, and Morales while he was beating up T-Dog in season 1. 

      Anyway. If it's a hand-to-hand fight, I'm leaning towards Merle. Even taking the blade off, I think he'd be able to take Abraham out. Regardless of Abe's rank in the military, he consistantly gets laid out in a fight, and Merle has a history of being a brawler, no matter the situation. Anything with weapons, given Merle's amputation, gives Abe a bit of an advantage, but that's still a hard fight to call.

      The reason Merle lost was because he was kicked on the ground by several men.

    • It's a tough decision, Abraham and Merle both have military training, and have weaknesses; Merle lacks common sense, and Abraham gets to reckless and cocky. Abraham may be better with guns, but Merle knows how to fight dirty, anything to win a fight or survive.

    • Yes I forgot about Merle getting softened up by the Governors henchmen first. Abe's stronger but  Merle is meaner...and smarter!
