Plot twist: They're both shooting a bad guy behind the other one, and then team up.

John would win, no doubt about it. What would Niko do,break John's arm,he got shot in the head and survived,and John's just a total Bad Ass

it would be cool if Mike frank trevor and Niko with Roman all met in GTA 6
Omegadbz Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013
Seeing as john is aiming the trigger above Niko's head, id say Niko.
I love them both, their games were awesome.
brainfire111 Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013
neither, Trevor from GTA 5 would win, just because.

Both one man armies and both have lifetimes of expirience on the field. Hm.......both human (counting marston as human) and in a REAL scenario no health regen for marston and not some quick draw showdown thing going on like an actual fkin fight cuz then of course marston would win. Im talking about a gunfight here. No body armor for niko since John doesnt have any. Both are ridiculously accurate and what john has in dead eye niko makes up with modern weaponery (bullets travel faster now then they did back then) In conclusion......fuck it! Who knows? I love both guys equally so im not being biased and I just honestly dont know. The only thing i do know (and we can all agree on) is that it would be a VERY close fight. There wouldnt be a "hands down" victor. In fact, I think they might both die. One would win the battle right? But he would be very badly injured and both men have taken many bullets before and walked away but in this case...with no outside thinking this would be the graves for both of em.

John would win doesn't matter how advanced the guns are its all in the draw and john can do it faster. lets think for just a moment in the duels which I think would be a fair form of fighting for these two.  The duels start out in dead eye letting him pick his moment but go into real time proving hes a faster draw and shot perfectly capable of disarming people if not killing them with deadly accuracy and speed. at the end of the day fancy guns don't mean shit if you ain't fast and dead is still dead.  Also body armor won't protect shit if john scores a head shot which he usually does John would win hands down.

Niko would win simply because he has more advanced weapons at his disposal.

It's hard to say, but Niko would win. He's got lots of guns n' explosives.

Niko Bellic
sonicnarutoauthor Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2013
(Posted this on another picture, but I have to post this here)

What Niko Bellic brings is Military Experience, Modern Weaponry, and Body Armor.

What John Marston brings is pretty close to perfect accuracy, a MUCH faster draw, and adaptable to many situations.

Niko Bellic's hit list includes: hundreds upon thousands of gang members pretty much single-handedly, the Pegerino Mafia (Spoilers), and the Dimitri Mafia (Again Spoilers)

John Marston's hit list includes: hundreds of gang members, usually alone even with help, animals, his former gang members and their cronies as well, and of course the FREAKING ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE

Advantage that Niko has over John: Military Training and Education, Modern Weaponry (especially an assault rifle), body armor, and the skill to basically take on an army single handily.

Advantage that John has over Niko: is incredibly adaptable to the situation (Not every man can take on a Zombie Apocalypse like it was taking out the trash), is a MUCH faster draw (Especially with Dead Eye), and is not above fighting dirty if need be.

Where they are even: Both are no nonsense type of people,are both one man armies, and both are incredibly motivated (Ironically both for family reasons)

Final Conclusion: John Marston wins:

While Niko has the advantage in fire power, its pretty much established fact that even a modern nine milometer can fire faster than an old western revolver, and in defense with his body armor. What REALLY tips the scales in John's favor is the Dead Eye ability and his adaptability in combat. A great example of this is when John gets the High Power Pistol (The old fashioned 9 mm) not only does he fire it like he's used it for years, but he fires it FASTER than the guy WHO HAS (now admit ally that's just game play mechanics but its a great point non the less)

Niko also had the advantage in tenacity, I think I'd rather fight an army of Zombies that I can run from vs the Guys with Guns who I can't. John, (again spoilers) while he did DIE in his game, it took pretty much the entire U.S. Military to take him down, and even than the only way he was killed, was because the Military...had to CHEAT!. Now think about this, a trained army with hundreds if not THOUSANDS of men, had to cheat to kill ONE guy.

Niko, while I admit it is awesome seeing Niko going all one man army on people. Lets really stop and think about who he is going one man army against compared to John. John, with no formal military training, went toe to toe with the U.S. Army, arguably one of the toughest armies in the WORLD at his time. Niko, with military training, was fighting Gangsters and Mafia goons.

So in the end, the guy with the faster shot, tougher grit, and adaptability would win. The Winner is John Marston.

(All though both games are still INCREDIBLY AWESOME)

Are you sure they wouldnt just be drinking buddies?
NotchTheHedgehog Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
John would win hands down. He has more experience with guns and is better than Niko in every way. Not to mention I doubt if Niko had died at the end of GTAIV, we wouldn't have balled our eyes out like we did with John when he died. My point is, John Marston is 100% the better character and the better fighter than Niko would ever be. If Niko ever heard of John, Niko would look up to him as a role model gunslinger.
sonicnarutoauthor Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2013
As much I like Niko, my money is on Mr.Marston
aaronboy22 Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
neither. they'd team up. john would give him some old timey cash that's worth a shitload now and niko would give john a ton of guns.
UndeadKing1231 Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012
You can't really compare. Niko has the benefit of modern weapons
theyoungabstracter Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
but John has Bullet time,and can regenerate health
UndeadKing1231 Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2013
True, but I think a fair fight is to give them both modern or western weapons

Gamer4Life1987 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2012
They are both awesome. I don't think that they would fight one another. They both have troubled pasts and have done things that they are not proud of but, they are trying to make up for what they have done. In the end, I think Niko and John would become allies, NOT ENEMIES! They might possibly even be good friends, if their tempers don't get the better of them.
LeeHatake93 Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Awesome effects and lightning on this! As for the debate:
John has dead eye aim and fought zombies, but Niko's been in a Serbian war, killed over 50 people in GTA IV's story (not counting random civilians, cops, or the guys with guns in the missions), had to kill and betray at least 10 people he either worked for or with, has the oppurtunity (although non-canon) to kill Johnny from "The Lost and Damned" and Luis from "The Ballad of Gay Tony", and has modern weapons on his side.
I'd go with Niko since he's had a lot more on his plate, but John's got better aim.
Either way, they'd probably get wasted in a saloon or bar, become friends, and then John, in response to Roman wanting to go bowling, would challenge him to Five Finger Filet.
insane677 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
i doubt they would fight. they would probily go get a beer and kill a pedophile.

Niko's gonna run over John, But shortly afterwards, Niko is given a call from Roman. "Cousin!! It's your cousin, lets go bowling!!"
Niko vaporizes.

helghastcookie619 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2011
has to be marston, He fought ZOMBIES. but nicky has a chance with all he modern weapons
giordano373 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2011
The characters are a close match in skill/strength.
It would depend more on the situation i think, if marston used his dead eye he would obtain an edge, but depending on were he shoots niko could still survive, and then niko modern weapons arsenal would give him the edge.
Tough decision...
The pic is very well done by the way.
