What does a party-loving son of medieval royalty and a high school teacher turned drug kingpin have in common? They are both highly intelligent and meticulous strategists you wouldn’t want to challenge in a battle of wits. Tyrion Lannister, the lead character of Game of Thrones, uses his wit and status to overcome the challenges he faces from invading forces and his family. Walter White, the main character in Breaking Bad, uses his chemistry know-how and intellect to outmaneuver law enforcement and drug cartels. You can’t help but ask: pitted against each other, who would come out on top?
Who would win in a battle between Breaking Bad’s Walter White and Game of Throne’s Tyrion Lannister?
