For those who don't know, Deadliest Warrior is a TV show that pits history’s greatest warriors against one another to determine who reigns supreme: information on historical or modern warriors and their weapons are used to determine which of them is the 'deadliest' based upon tests performed during each episode. The show is characterized by its use of the data compiled in creating a dramatization of the warriors' battle to the death. The first two seasons showed such memorable battles as Spartan vs. Ninja, Viking vs. Samurai, Pirate vs. Knight, Yakuza vs. Mafia and Comanche vs. Mongol.
