I will be arguing that if in a fight, a dalek would beat any other monster from Dr. Who.

First round is for acceptance and to pick your monster that you believe would beat a Dalek in a fight.

Circumstances:
In order to debate this, we need to set up the background. The dalek and the monster my opponent chooses will be placed at opposite sides facing each other in an arena. The arena is 100 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 50 feet tall. The walls, ground and ceiling are indestructible.

Also, everything is assumed to be fully functioning, and has only their standard weapons.

Rules:
- You need to be familiar with the TV show.
- The monster you choose must be from Dr. Who.
- Your monster cannot be human or time lord.
- No cheap loop-holes please.

Definitions:
Monster- enemy of the Doctor
Beat- defeat, exterminate

By accepting the debate you agree to all the above definitions, rules and circumstances.

I wish my opponent luck. Allons-y!

Tbh i do believe that there are many Monsters in the Dr. Who series that would definitely fall to the Daleks they are the greatest. But would say the Weeping angels but i have an understanding that there "magic/power" has no effect on the Robot force so the Cybermen would be my choice...

I would like to thank Con for accepting my challenge, and wish him luck.

Con stated that a Cyberman will defeat a Dalek.

I will proceed to present my case.

Argument:

In the Dr. Who season 2 finale "Doomsday," the Cybermen actually declare war on the Daleks.[1] The four Daleks then proceed to destroy several cybermen. The Cybermen's weapons, laser guns, were virtually useless against the Daleks. Check out this clip from the very episode:

There are many more Cybermen than Daleks. Therefore, if it was one on one, a Dalek would surely win.

I would still consider those to be Daleks, as they are just the next generation of Daleks.

It'd be a cheap loop hole, but Daleks suck against their colorful cousins. As glad as I am the doctor didn't win for once, I'm glad the new Daleks failed to catch on.

Yes, everything is fully functional, working, and comes as standard. I will fix that.

Please specify that both have their standard weapons... An unarmed Dalek is scary, but hardly a threat to most monsters.

I was going to choose timelord, then I saw the arena of choice... nothing clever to use there. Plus that no timelord rule.

I would say as long as it can fit in arena.

does it need to be a regular monster? or can it be a onetime monster? Forinstance the devil in season 2, or grandfather (big star) in the most recent season.

The more seasons the better, but if you've seen a season or two that's perfectly fine. I just want my opponent to be knowledgable about their monster and the show so it'll make a better debate.

When you say must be familiar with the show, do you mean they have to have seen some episodes, they have to have seen every episode in the new series, or they have to go full Whovian and have a sonic screwdriver and a license plate reading "My other car is a Tardis"?
