The war-ravaged on Twitter after a post went viral asking fans who they think is the best on-screen with a bow and arrow. The candidates were Legolas from Lord of the Rings, Oliver Queen from the TV series Arrow, Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, and the Marvel Cinematic Universes' Hawkeye. Despite the fact that there were four candidates most of the users narrowed their attention down to just Legolas and Hawkeye.

Most of the people responding to the original post claimed that Legolas was the best archer and there was no debating it. In fact in the poll, 70% voted in favour of Orlando Bloom’s character from the LOTR and The Hobbit films. Hawkeye was running in second place with 15% votes while Oliver Queen was the third.

Many Twitter users took to the platform to express why they thought Legolas is the best archer. A popular Twitter user Zelda Williams stated, “Legolas is thousands of years old, all of them spent perfecting his archery. I mean, he can shoot arrows from a classic longbow sans arrow rest (he uses his hand like a champ) with deadly precision while riding a shield down a flight of stone stairs.” Another user Billy Locke stated, “He is more powerful, personally but Hawkeye has vastly superior firepower. If we are just at the range with basic arrows and now? Legolas is the winner. In a death battle? It’s Hawkeye”

While the options to choose from in the poll were limited to just out of the four, fans named many more known modern archers in film and television as their favourite. Soon, several memes began floating on Twitter about this poll. Here are some hilarious ones.
