In this thread, a lot of my misconceptions about the whole Cthulhu mythos were cleared up. (Thanks all!) However, my curiosity as a Trilogy fan was piqued. If Cthulhu ever awoke, and the Mythos universe somehow overlapped with Middle Earth, and Gandalf and Cthulhu decided they don’t really like each other, who would win in a no holds barred, knock down, drag out fight?
In the left corner, we have Gandalf: Wisest of the Istari, Bearer of Narya - the ring of fire, vanquisher of the Balrog, all-round super wizard.
In the right corner, we have Cthulhu: One of the more powerful entities in the Mysthos universe, superb telepathic powers, interesting physiology.
I’m plumping for Gandalf.
