    Default Star Wars vs. Asgard (MCU)

    The forces from "Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" versus the Kingdom of Asgard before Hela/Surtur mess it up.

    All of Naboo's fighters + Gungan army. 1 Trade Federation ship in low orbit + all droid forces seen. Obi Wan, Quigon and Darth Maul.

    Versus:

    Asgard starts with its castle shield up + all its standing armies scrambled. Odin is in charge. Loki and Thor (with Mjolnir) are present.

    Important notes: The 3 Force users start INSIDE the palace. They are charged with shutting the shield down. The main Asgardians are likewise inside the palace throne room. They are aware of the attack, but not the jedi.

    Can they topple Asgard's rule?

    That none of us could see
    Our war would yield countless dead
    But never victory
    So let us cast arms aside
    And like discard our wrath
    Thou, in faith, will keep us safe
    Whilst we find the path"

    No, they have no real chance of winning here. Asgardians are too good and too tough.

    The SW forces aren't ever getting through the shield: remember, it took a being stronger and tougher than Thor, with nasty energy draining magic touch, to pound down the defenses around the shield generator. Nothing about these guys makes them immune to Heimdall either, so he'll see them coming and know exactly where they are. Honestly, given his abilities, there is no real reason that he can't just Bifrost them the hell out of the palace and on over to, say, Jotunheim, without them ever knowing what he's up to.

    For the rest of the forces, their base-level blasters are things Asgardians can probably no-sell as well.

    And this is before Thor and Odin start doing their thing. Thor's AoE's are going to leave acres of corpses and droid parts to pick up.

    Pretty much this you'd need 6o remove Thor, Odin and probably Loki and give them at least Episode Two levels of forces

    episode two would be a stomp the other way. the clones and droids were packing serious heat in that one.

    but yeah, i dont recall ep 1 battle being that impressive.

    Yeah, SW would need the combined Episode 2 forces of Loyalist and Resistance armies to stand a chance.

    Even then, can they dent Thor's armor? Nothing they have done says "yes" to that.

    What do the ships bring into the fight? We never saw the Asgardian shield take SW ship level bombardment. As far as their soldiers being tough, they had no ranged weapons and lots of trouble against the opposition with energy small arms.

    The difference is that Asgardians have feats for no-selling bullets, and basic Star Wars blasters don't really hit harder than bullets.

    Loki took gunfire to the face in Avengers. Lady Sif took a shotgun blast in AoS.

    Lady Sif I get but weren't typical Asgardians gunned down by Malekith's men? I'm at work and don't have access to Youtube.

    And technically Loki isn't an Asgardian. :P

    IIRC, Malekith's men were using laser beams and freaking black hole grenades. Which is awesome.

    I remember the black hole grenades but I thought there were some conventional firearms as well...but I could be mistaken.

    Blaster bolts work via heat and are more akin to the Dark Elf blasters than bullets, and iirc blaster bolts are more impressive than the shotgun pellets that hit Sif.
