So, who's more badass, Toph Bei Fong or Arya Stark?
I mean, in terms of who wins in a fight, that's pretty obvious. Arya is a surprisingly good fencer for her age. Toph is a master martial artist, has magical powers, 360-degree vision as long as her opponent is touching the ground, and is the greatest earthbender in the world.
But that's not the question. The question is which is more badass--and I think the answer, whatever it is, is likely to cast interesting light on how we define what makes a person badass.
