Mat, but I think it would be closer than most are giving it credit for. Selucia is very highly trained to deal with assassination attempts. The Seanchan wouldn't let just anybody be the personal bodyguard to the Empress' daughter. But Mat is the best warrior in the world.

lets think... back before mat got his ashendarai... he faced off against galad and gawyn... knocking both out cold before they could even touch him... he was clearly one of the best fighter in the books... THEN he gets his ashendarai, unweaving medalion, and the battle memories from his past lives...

not to mention his luck... based on his luck, he took out several high lords of tear without trying(or by accident) ... hit rabbits, flying targets, etc without looking(or/and by accident)

to my mind, he's the most dangerous man out there... capable of beating rand and lan... and selucia, wouldnt stand a chance if she provoked his ire...



i agree that matt has trumendess skill
and i think some people forget that "the snakes" called him like the prince of battels or son of battels or some such in tRS

As much as I love Mat, I have to go with Selucia in this one. Throughout the books we see the Forsaken and their superior knowledge and training losing because they underestimate the people of the Third Age. Continuing with that theme Mat, who doesn't just underestimate Selucia's skills but doesn't even consider her a threat, loses in this confrontation. Lets say his luck saves Selucia's initial strike from being a fatal one, but it isn't enough for Mat to fully recover from his complete surprise before Selucia is able to finally land that one deadly blow.
