We’ve pointed out before that the biggest difference between zombies and vampires is that zombies are real, and vampires a fake. That is to say that vampires are based in superstition and myth, while zombies are based in modern science. But who would win in a fight if they could ever meet?
Our panel of experts compared zombies and vampires fighting in their traditional modes (zombies in large hordes and vampires alone or in small groups), and came up with a clear victor: zombies. Here are some reasons why:
- Vampires still have human emotions, and so can get lonely, discouraged, doubtful, depressed, and mentally defeated
- Vampires traditionally fight hand-to-hand, the most dangerous way to attack a zombie
- The zombie sickness is supremely contagious, so any blood exposure in the vampire’s eyes, mouth or wounds would spell doom
- Vampires are allergic to sunlight, leaving them unable to battle much of every day
- Zombies are constantly recruiting new reinforcements, leaving the option to either to fight now and die, or flee and die later
Some respondents went so far as the say that zombies would have an easier time defeating vampires than humans, because humans are more likely to fight the undead from remote locations, rather than in close. Furthermore, vampires are concerned with their own well being, and the well being of their food source: the human race. Zombies don’t care about the well being of anything, and are happy to end the world for their next meal.
What are some other reasons that zombies would win against their fictional foe?
