The Vampire Diaries vs. True Blood Smackdown


Welcome back ladies and gents for Round 2 of The Vampire Diaries vs. True Blood Smackdown. For this next head to head battle we’ve got Stefan Salvatore over in the blue corner and Bill Compton over in the red corner.  I’m very interested to see how this nice vamp vs. nice vamp battle is going to turn out.  This is one match where the nice guy isn’t going to finish last.  Okay well one will but…oh never mind.  Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls LET’S GET REEEEAAADDDYYYY TO RUUUUUMMBLE!!!



  • Honorable
  • Southern gentleman
  • Loves very deeply and would die to protect others
  • Very protective of Sookie and Jessica
  • 162 years old
  • 175 years old
  • Can walk in the sun
  • Under normal circumstances he does not like to hurt humans
  • Empathetic and self-sacrificing
  • Doesn’t take issue with mainstreaming


  • Does not drink human blood which makes him weak
  • His actions have put Sookie in danger
  • If he does drink human blood he struggles with bloodlust
  • Has attacked Sookie after being tortured and starved
  • Has attracted Katherine’s attention who will stop at nothing to get him
  • Incapacitated by daylight
  • Vulnerable to matters having to do with Elena
  • Seems to have a hidden agenda

Jen D.:  I’m very interested to see how this head to head turns out Betty.  Although I’m a lover of all things True Blood, I have a soft spot for Stefan.  It’s not that I don’t love Bill.  It’s just that I feel like he’s messing with Sookie’s head and I don’t like that one bit.  Not to mention that Stefan has a fiercer vamp out face than Bill.  If I bumped into him in a dark alley with those crazy eyes I’d die of a heartattack.

Betty:  I have to say I’m biased when it comes to Stefan.  He’s always the good guy.  He sacrifices himself to save the people he cares about.  He doesn’t use people and he certainly doesn’t lie to the ones he loves.  I think that Bill has always had his own agenda at heart when he was with Sookie and he’s never hesitated to lie to and manipulate her.  Stefan loves and protects Elena just because he loves her.  I’m not really sure if it came to hand to hand battle  who’d win, but in the love and caring department I think Stefan’s got this one.

What say you Bite Clubbers?  Can Stefan take out Bill or will Bill be putting the smackdown on Stefan.  What are some of the strengths and weaknesses you think will help or hurt them.  Cast your vote and tell us what you think.

Bill has always had his own agenda. He came to "acquire" Sookie in the first place. Stefan, however, came b/c he wanted to know Elena and fall in love with her. He has a much kinder heart. With his daylight ring, Stefan has more time during the day to be with Elena and protect her. One definite advantage Bill has is that he can sense when Sookie is in trouble b/c she's had his blood. That definitely gives him an advantage in the protection department, even though that only applies to the night. My vote is for Stefan, even though I really LOVE Trueblood.

Ohh this here is a hard one. For plain being a ass, Bill might win. He does kick arse when he needs to and probably has some hidden war trained powers of fightery, but then he is a twisted dick. I also agree that he messes with Sookie's mind, had hidden agendas and was a loser a lot of the time.
Stefan has issues and I have not seen him kick too much arse, but then again he might have some hidden powers and his agenda seems a bit more true and intact as far as to his lady wants.
For this round, I am voting Stefan.
Since Bill needs to grow a pair that things of someone but himself.

I am not sure if this is about who could kick who's ass harder or not?? I think Bill could take out Stephan, especially since he's so weak from lack of human blood. Also we have seen on True Blood that Bill only really cares about himself & sometimes Sookie, so he will fight hard & dirty. Yeah...

However because I LOVE Stephan so much more, and he's the sweet, kind, and caring one. I vote for Stephan.

I don't really care about either of these two. Bill will give me a heart attack EVEN if I see him in lights. Look at him!! Stephan is more soothing for the eyes.

So comparatively Bill lost this smackdown after "His actions have put Sookie in danger" point.

Now I wait for Damon VS Eric post. That would be a hard one to choose. :p

Patches said...

I vote Stefan! Can't really put into words why, so I'm going to go with "gut instinct". lol

Carrie said...

WOW such a change from last weeks smackdown. I too say Stefan is a better nice guy vamp. Sorry Bill maybe next year.

Jen D. said...

Thanks for stopping by to cast your votes. It's interesting to see everyone's answer.

Stefan all the way!

Though he has put Elena in danger before, he has never cheated on her before and he is just a better package.

Lonely out here. In a smackdown, I've gotta go with Bill.

"I think that Bill has always had his own agenda at heart when he was with Sookie and he’s never hesitated to lie to and manipulate her."

That point is why I'm going to have to go with Stefan. Thanks for hosting this! It's a lot of fun! :)
