10 Most Powerful warriors of Mahabharat
Lord Krishna is celebrated as the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Although he was able to end the war in the blink of an eye, he did not do that thing. He was interestingly happy in being Arjuna’s charioteer and strategist but when he felt the inability of Arjuna to defeat Bhishma, Lord Krishna rushed toward the Kauravas with anger and impatience. Despite being a “good to go” situation for Arjuna, he stopped Lord Krishna, reminding him of his promise, and asked him to not hold any weapons.
Very few people know that Karna is the first son of Kunti. In this greatest battle, Karna decides to fight alongside Kauravas. Factually, Karna is the most powerful warrior in Mahabharata after Lord Krishna as he had his armor (Kavacha) and (Kundala) with him due to which he had no death. Unfortunately at the time of the war, he had left his armor and earrings away, and hence he had to experience death.
Arjuna is popularly known for his archery. Arjuna was the third one among the Pandavaas. When Krishna had two choices namely providing Narayani Sena and providing himself as an unarmed warrior in front of Arjuna and Duryodhana, Arjuna chose Krishna and Duryodhana chose The Narayani Sena. Duryodhana thought at this point that Arjuna was Foolish to choose unarmed Krishna over Narayani Sena.
Bhishma is the most powerful warrior and he is also known for his Strategistick way of performing in the Battlefield. Not everyone knows that Bhishma is taken a vow not to attack a woman. Arjuna positioned himself behind Shikandi and aimed at the body parts of Bhishma. soon with arrows sticking although Bhishma fell from his Chariot he was not touched to the ground and was held by many arrows protruding from his body.
The son of Arjuna, Abhimanyu, was knowing about the strategies to enter into the Chakra Vyuha when he was in his mother’s womb. Abhimanyu knew the secret of entering the Chakra vyuh formation but did not know how to get out of it. Abhimanyu screwed tens of thousands of warriors. He also killed Dhuryodhana’s son and Durmashana who was Dushasana’s son. Duryodhana ordered his men to attack Abhimanyu all at once. Abhimanyu fought but was surrounded and killed by many warriors in a combined attack.
Dronacharya is the teacher of both Kauravas and Pandavas. He taught Archery to both Arjuna & Karna and Mace fight to both Bheema and Duryodhana. Because Drona was very powerful and inconquerable, Krishna hinted to Yudhisthira that Drona would give up his arms if his son Ashwathama was dead. Bhima killed an elephant named Ashwathama and loudly proclaimed that Ashwathama was dead. Yudhisthira proclaimed “Ashwathama Hatahath, Naro VA Kunjaro VA”, meaning Ashwathama had died but he was not sure whether it was a Drona’s son or an elephant.
Drishtadyumna is the Commander-in-Chief of the Pandavas army throughout the war. He killed Drona and many others. After the war is over, Ashwatthama, Kripacharya, and Kritavarma met Duryodhana on his deathbed and promised to avenge the actions of Bhima. They attacked the Pandavas’ camp later that night and killed all the Pandavas’ remaining army including their children. He was slaughtered in that attack.
Bheema is one of the Pandava brothers. He was known for his excellent personality and great power. He killed all the Kauravas including Duryodhana. On the 18th day of the battle, when Duryodhana ran away from the battlefield and was later found by the Pandavas, he went into a duel with Duryodhana and killed him, indicating the end great battle of Kurukshetra.
Ghatotkacha is the son of Bheema. On the fourteenth day of the Kurukshetra, the battle continued after the sunset. Ghatotkach, son of Bhima destroyed heck of numerous warriors, attacking while flying in the air. Karna stood against him and both fought vigorously until he got the Divine weapon given to him by Indra. Ghatotkach became bigger and fell dead on the Kaurav army killing thousands of them.
Duryodhana is the eldest among the Kauravas. He is the leader of the Kaurava army and the major reason for the greatest battle in the history of mankind. He is a great commander and an extremist. From the game of dice with the Pandavas to his attempt to arrest Krishna when he was on a peace mission, Duryodhana is remarked as the most cruel ruler of the Bharata Varsha. His death in the hands of Bheema in Mace combat on the 18th day indicated the end of Kurukshetra.
