If all of these characters were enemies and fought one another with a single sword, who do you think would win?

On the one hand... Only one character from Highlander franchise?..

And then you remember... There can be only one. :)

I can't believe there is only one photo of Peter Wingfield from Highlander as Adam Pierson/Methos, and he is just sitting at a desk talking to the Watcher Joe.

There's more, it just seems they're not indexed properly for some reason... 

Plus there's two from Highlander: The Source

I know there's 35 already, but in my humble opinion poll can use one less character from GOT, so...

FYC:
Hornblower from Hornblower series of TV movies. Ioan Gruffudd is very good at fencing and yet people  usually don't remember that about him.

Lightsabers are quite different from usual swords, so I'm not sure they should be included here.

FYC:
Arthur Dayne

(only seen in flashbacks, but considered by many to be the greatest swordsman who ever lived)

Also, may I suggest some edits:
If all of these characters were enemies and fought one another with a single sword, who do you think would win?

I can't help but notice that none of the characters are women.  How about River Tam, Xena, Buffy Summers, Mulan, or Yu Shu Lien?

Sorry,

If all of these characters were enemies
and fought one another with a single sword,
who would you think will win?

Your original text could say
"Guys" with a single sword
"Dolls" are listed here

Paok, you might make the title the same as your other poll so it looks like a companion to this one.

after all the whingeing about women which this poll is NOT about......i need must mention that Gerard Butler who is almost as famous as Errol Flynn for swashbuckling is only listed once you missed  Gerard Butler in ''Attila'', ''Timeline'', ''Phantom of the Opera'' & ''Beowulf & Grendel'', besides 300 that you have mentioned. why can't you let Sparta go!!?!?!?!

I like ''300'' a lot. I am from Greece also and I have seen Leonidas statue. Too bad the sequel wasn't good enough

i liked 300 til strangers started shouting ''THIS IS SPARTA'' AT Gerard in public. and once even when he was trying to pee!!!    i like the high concept look of the film, and it was executed well. Zach is brilliant and creative. Gerard completed a Herculean feat in his physical transformation but now everyone expects him to look like that all the time. that takes 6 hours a day and no food. come on get real.
i have seen photos of a Leonidas statue. i'm pretty sure the sculptor didn't know him. at least Gerard is better 'hung'.
