Chuck Norris vs. Jack Bauer vs. The Unit

Jan 13, 2009 by Jared Smith

I’m not sure if it was a dream or one of those subconscious pre-sleep thoughts, but I spent a lot of time last night thinking about the strengths and weaknesses of Chuck Norris, Jack Bauer, and all members of The Unit. I wonder who would win a battle between the three of them.

The Unit


  • Brotherhood, except that there’s now a chick on The Unit (<– tee hee), and also except the time the colonel knocked up Mack’s wife (but Mack punched him a lot and they’re tight now).
  • If they die or are injured, Jonas has them all hooked up with Allstate Insurance.


  • Most dialog is incomprehensible. For instance, if Jack Bauer demands, “Who are you working for?!?”, the response will be something like, “Betty Blue, Cool Breeze, surrender that intel to that blue suit Bauer most ricky tick.”
  • Nagging wives at home.

Jack Bauer


  • Able to steal a pistol from an FBI agent, rack the slide, and not eject a live round onto the ground.
  • Can go 24 hours without relieving himself.
  • Can torture you into giving up information by simply uttering two words – “ballpoint pen”.


  • His boss, the President, died a few years ago and came back as Jonas Blaine, the leader of The Unit. It may or may not be significant that they both have the initials J.B.
  • Chloe O’Brien constantly saying, “It’s good to hear your voice, Jack” in his earpiece.

Chuck Norris


  • The cowboy boot roundhouse kick.
  • Can shoot 20+ rounds from his revolver without reloading.
  • Is pretty much totally invincible.
  • Token black friend in a cowboy hat.


  • Tries (always unsuccessfully) to resolve conflict first without violence. Jack and The Unit don’t roll that way.
  • Total Gym infomercial dude.
  • Token black friend in a cowboy hat.

So, who do you think would win? And be careful who you pick, Jack and/or Jonas and/or Chuck may retaliate.

  2. I’d have to go with Jack. I haven’t watched any of these shows, but he wins in the looks department…I’d love to hear his voice in my earpiece any day:)

  3. Trisha-

    You haven’t seen the show, so I’ll fill you in. If you like Jack, that’s cool. But if Jack likes you back, you’re 91.2% likely to die or become a terrorist yourself this season. The odds increase to 98.3% if you live longer than one season.

  4. I don’t watch any of the shows, nor have I seen a Chuck Norris movie…but I am pretty sure Sayid or Smokey could take them all!

  5. Honestly Chuck could probably win (only because he’s pretty much invincible), but I like the guys on The Unit better (ewww….gross). So they’re who I would be cheering on.

  6. So does that mean I’d die a happy woman??

  7. I really like the guy on the unit!!

  8. I really like the Unit on the guy! Thats what she said!!!!

  9. As I read Kara’s comment, I wondered how long it would take someone to come back with a comment just like Steve’s. In true Smith fashion, it didn’t take long…and that’s what she said!!

  10. You people need to read my comments better. I said that first!

  11. Steve would like the guy on the Unit. I personally like the chick on the unit. Jack Bauer is probably the deadliest man in the world. Any man that is willing to shoot a suspects wife in the kneecap to get information out of the suspect ranks high in my book. Good post Jared!

  12. Erin,the difference between your comment and Kara’s comment is that you said “ewww gross” and Kara didn’t. So Kara REALLY likes like the guys on the unit. p.s. Jack Bauer will kill his boss “the head of CTU” to prevent terrorism. Jonas cant even protect his own guys. He needs to get a tighter grip on his unit. Ha Ha Ha

  13. # Chuck Norris once invited all of the other badasses from TV to duke it out in order to see who was the supreme badass. Only two showed up– Jack Bauer and MacGyver.

    # MacGyver immediately tried to make a bomb out of some Q-Tips and Gatorade, but Chuck Norris roundhouse-kicked him in the solar plexus. MacGyver promptly threw up his own heart.

    # Jack Bauer tried to use his detailed knowledge of torture techniques, but to no avail: Chuck Norris thrives on pain. Chuck Norris then ripped off Jack Bauer’s arm and beat him to death with it. Game, set, match.

  14. This debate shouldn’t even take place! Don’t you know your Chuck Norris Facts?

    “Chuck Norris was originally cast as the main character in 24, but was replaced by the producers when he managed to kill every terrorist and save the day in 12 minutes and 37 seconds.”

  15. This is the greatest blog post in the history of the internet. You have achieved a level of border-diety. I am sending the link to my friends, so that they can witness firsthand the level of coolness to which you have evolved.

    And PS–Jack Bauer is my vote. Did you see that flip that he laid on the secrect servant agent turned bad two weeks ago? GREATEST…ACTION HERO…EVER! But if my friend comments he will pick Chuck Norris and have some awesome random fact about why Chuck Norris and Jesus are the only two saviors of mankind.

  16. If they did decide to fight I think that probably Chuck Norris would lose. I mean think about it, Jack Bauer used to work for President David Palmer (Jonas Blane), and they are both the ultimate patriots. I think it is perfectly logical to assume that they would join forces to bring Chuck Norris down. Although it seems much more likely that they would all join together to form a super being capable of ruling the universe.

    P.S. Has no one been watching the most recent season of 24? Jack Bauer has been exposed to nuclear radiation and aside from a little twitching he’s still kicking ass.
