Four (1) vs. Christina (36)

Four
Book Series, Fandom:  Divergent, DivergentTrilogy

Tobias Eaton, more prominently known as Four because of his four fears, is one of the main characters in Divergent and Insurgent and is the son of Evelyn Johnson-Eaton and Marcus Eaton. Alongside Lauren (instructor of Dauntless-born initiates), he is the instructor of the transfer initiates. He becomes the love interest of Tris Prior later on in the first book of the trilogy. Four’s fears are height, confinement (claustrophobia), killing people, and being beaten by Marcus (his father). – Divergent wikia

Christina
Book Series, Fandom: Divergent, DivergentTrilogy

Christina is a brave, courageous, thoughtful, witty, and somewhat kind person. She was not one of the very best initiates (still making in through initiation), but Christina worked harder than almost all the others. Christina was also noted to have a fear of moths . Christina is usually funny, bubbly and supportive to Tris and her friends, she is very brave and tough. It is noticed by Four in Allegiant that she is cheerful in the morning.

Because she is from Candor, she can be loud-mouthed and blunt, not sugarcoating anything and saying whatever is on her mind. Christina can also be very tough, and does not care what people think of her. She likes to talk a lot too, often teasing her friends or boldly insulting those she doesn’t like. – Divergent wikia

hbarPeeta Mellark (10) vs. Legolas (18)

Peeta Mellark
Book Series, Fandom: The Hunger Games, Hunger Games World

Peeta has a very likable personality. He is bold (having announced that he was in love with Katniss to the whole nation), smart (figuring out strategies to use in the Games), and willing to go to extremes to keep Katniss alive.  He is a great public speaker and is very brave. Peeta is also loving and cares about the people around him and hates killing unless the pursuer is a threat to himself or Katniss. He is extremely selfless, has a good sense of humor that he uses during tough times, and always knows exactly what to say to make someone feel better. He is able to work with Haymitch on goals and strategy and, unlike Katniss, able to keep secrets and is trusted by Haymitch. It is noted throughout the series his deep understanding of situations such as the Hunger Games where he says, “I don’t want to be just a piece in their Games.”

In Catching Fire, Finnick Odair states that Peeta is one of the only truly good people to survive the arena. He is usually the more sentimental of all of the main characters, “feeling” things more than everyone else. He doesn’t have Katniss or Gale’s “fire,” but he isn’t soft. – Hunger Games wikia

Legolas
Book Series, Fandom: Lord of the Rings, Middle-Earth Chronicles

Although he lived among them and in their culture, Legolas was not fully of theSilvan Elves. As a son of the Elven-king Thranduil, who had originally come from Doriath, Legolas was at least part SindarinElf, as his mother’s identity is completely unknown. This is complicated by the fact that a small minority of Sindarin Elves ruled the predominantly Silvan Woodland Realm of Northern Mirkwood, a minority to which Legolas belonged. The Sindarin minority in that realm, who should have been nobler and wiser than the Silvan Elves, can be seen as having “gone native” at the end of the First Age: after Morgoth was defeated and all of the grand Elf-kingdoms of Beleriand were destroyed, they can be seen as going back to “a simpler time” in their culture.

Like all elves, Legolas has a great respect and appreciation for nature. While in Fangorn Forest he longed to return once more in order to explore its wonders more thoroughly. He is kind, and cares greatly for his friends, even Gimli the Dwarf, though it was a rarity for elves and dwarves to express a liking for one another because of their feud. Due to his age however, he sometimes seems rather patronizing toward the mortals around him. – LOTR wikia

Thomas (15) vs. Gandalf (19)

Thomas
Book Series, Fandom: The Maze Runner, Maze Runner World

 Being the Greenie in the Glade, Thomas surely has what it takes to fight Grievers, protect his friends and solve secret codes. He will do almost anything to help his friends, including going through the single most painful thing that can happen to a person who goes into the maze in order to get information that may help everyone escape. Thomas is one of the strongest fighters in the Glade as well as the more humble boys in the Glade.

Gandalf
Book Series, Fandom: The Hobbit, Middle-Earth Chronicles

He’s a keen wizard, able to piece things together to solve a puzzle here and there.  He calls to creatures for aid often, which is pretty awesome.  He faces off against one of the most evil monsters all on his own to save the Fellowship from death.  And then he rises as an even more powerful wizard.  He’s been able to help guide both Bilbo Baggins and then Bilbo’s nephew, Frodo Baggins against Sauron and his followers.  He’s one of the best wizards around!

hbarAnnabeth Chase (8) vs. Tess (37)

Annabeth Chase
Book Series, Fandom: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Percy Jackson Universe

Annabeth loves architecture, and spends her free time designing new buildings and visiting national monuments. Her fatal flaw is hubris, otherwise known as excessive pride: she thinks she can do anything and do it well, even better than the gods. 

Annabeth can be very caring but possessive of the people she loves. Annabeth is very harsh and judgmental during first meetings, but after winning her approval she is very loyal. She is very strong-minded and equally stubborn, she is also incredibly brave and daring. Annabeth shows many signs of dauntlessness, courage and determination. She has a lot of nerve. Annabeth is also an intellectual genius, as well as clever and witty. She’s also analytical, strategic, and is very wise.

Annabeth’s fatal flaw is hubris (deadly pride or arrogance.) Annabeth believes that she is able to do anything: get her parents back together, build great monuments, and save Luke as shown in The Sea of Monsters. She sometimes even thinks she could rebuild the world, even better than how the gods did it. – Camp Half Blood wikia

Tess

Book Series, Fandom: Legend, Legend Trilogy

Tess’s spunk comes across fairly early in the book, and no doubt considering that she’s had to live pretty much on her own before she joined up with Day at the age of 10.  Despite having Day help take care of her, she’s pretty self-sufficient, and is very loyal to Day, to the point that she doesn’t welcome other people to join them.  When separated from Day, she finds a way to another group and integrates herself with them quite well.  She’s a survivor.
