@ReiKai: Thats funny because the definition is quite different to what you think it is.
You see if you had any brains about you at all you would know someone who is trained to use swords is called a "Trained Swordsman" and then they can ascend through the various ranks (Expert, master etc). Dark Schneider is a "Swordsman" not a "Trained Swordsman" or a "Master Swordsman" just a regular "Swordsman" like anyone else who can use a blade.
You see what I dont understand is how you cannot seem to comprehend the definition we have given you. It is very definitive in that it is a definition of a "swordsman" from a highly regarded institute of the english language. Thats what you wanted in the first place and that is what i gave you by definition. Dark Schneider has access to a sword that he can use in battle that makes him just as much a swordsman as anyone else. Deny it till the earth burns up I dont care much for your views, unless you can refute the Oxford Dictionarys definition I can keep on posting this same stuff over again and still have the higher ground because, put quite simply, no matter what you say he is by definition a "Swordsman" as well as a "Wizard", he would just rather use magic than swords.
Is he trained to use them with great skill? No
Can he use them with a degree of skill in a fight?To some degree yes, more than enough to get by on anyway.
He is Classed as a Wizard because that is his PREFERED fighting style and the style he accels in the most, it still wont change the fact that he can use a sword if he wishes.
You can keep saying im wrong but I have the backing of Oxford behind me in regards to his status as a "Swordsman". Unless you can dispute that definition they gave then by all rights Dark Schneider can defeat D under your specified rules laid out in the First post and not much you say is going to change that in the slightest.
So let me know when you email Oxford and get them to change the definition and then, and only then, I can dismiss my claim, until then DS is the first one who beats him.
Now I am still waiting to hear what character you think can beat D. Since we have been asking for a long time and we have yet to recieve an answer from you so If you dont mind, in your next post you can bash me some more but please add in a character that you think could beat D.
At least that way we know you are not purposefully wanking him into oblivion.
Unless you are in which case.
Just for clarity once again because you cant seem to read all to well.
Noun: A man who fights with a sword (typically with his level of skill specified): "an expert swordsman". (Or Trained Swordsman for that matter)
