Is John the strongest spartan out of all of them? (1,2s,3s,4s)

He's so lucky that he performs flawlessly on the field... at what point is it still considered luck?

This just on for those people (read one) who think luck means only good things happen. It doesn't. Learn what a word means before you try and argue using the definition of said word.

Luck: the fortuitous happening of fortunate or adverse events.

Now try and argue that the MC isn't extremely lucky by saying bad stuff happens to him.


According to Dictionary.com

Luck - the force that seems to operate for good or ill in a person's life, as in shaping circumstances, events, or opportunities

Lucky - having or marked by good luck; fortunate

I would explain more on how this is just bad writing and to fill in the wholes. "Hes just lucky". No, thats not a sarcastic response, thats LITERALLY the answer to why John's awesome.

So in some horrific circumstance that 9/10 people would die in, John would get that 10% chance boosted to 100% and he would live.

Oh and ITS WRITTEN THAT WAY.

I know, what an asinine discussion this turned into. 15 pages, really?

It says in the books he is the luckiest. It doesnt matter if you believe in luck or not, or if you think the bad situations he gets into are due to bad luck. Its a fictional series of books and games.

Hes an above average Spartan but not a master in any area, except he is incredibly lucky.

No one really cares whether you want to get into some philosophical debate on luck, its the reason given, so deal with it.

Luck is generally agreed upon to be a real thing but it's hard to define or observe, thus making it intangible, IE having no true physical presence. Because of this it can't be measured or appropriately studied, making it unquantifiable.

Cortana: [voice-over against a night sky] They let me pick. Did I ever tell you that? Choose whichever Spartan I wanted. [a yellow comet appears in the sky and slowly streaks across the screen] You know me. I did my research. Watched as you became the soldier we needed you to be. Like the others, you were strong and swift and brave. A natural leader. But you had something they didn't. [a smaller comet breaks off from the main one] Something else no one saw but me. Can you guess? Luck. [the smaller comet suddenly plummets down to the earth and crashes off-screen. The scene fades to black] ...Was I wrong?

Noble Six had the same Hyper-lethal vector designation as the chief does, but i'm not really sure if that technically makes them equals.


Doesn't make them equals. Although Noble 6 is a fkn badass.
