    I haven't read all of the posts in this thread...but there was definitely a lot of thought put into this by everyone!

    In my opinion, it really depends on the scenario.  I apologize if I repeat anything that's already been said, as I said before, I only read maybe three out of the seven pages of posts.

    Scenario 1:  Prue-Piper-Phoebe (with Prue still alive, Paige will not have obtained Charmed One status and is therefore out of the running.)

    With Magic(Hypothetical situation assuming that they can use it against each other without losing their powers)
    1) Prue (Her powers were always pretty much the strongest, and had she lived past season four they likely would have become unlimited)
    2) Piper (I would really REALLY not want to mess with her powers)
    3) Phoebe (Stripped of her combat skills for this battle, her powers are mostly passive.  And levitation without fighting skills...is just levitation)

    Without Magic
    1) Phoebe (because she's trained so hard to make up for the fact that her powers are primarily passive, and she has proven that she can kick butt!)
    2) Prue (simply out of sheer ruthlessness--she is nearly a match for Phoebe by my standards)
    3) Piper (While she can hold her own in battle...she doesn't quite make the cut)


    Scenario 2: Piper-Phoebe-Paige (Prue is dead, Paige received her powers, etc)

    With Magic: (again hypothetical situation...blah, blah, blah)
    1) Piper ('nuff said)
    2) Paige (calling objects to throw at people has proven reasonably effective, hasn't it?)
    3) Phoebe (same reasons as before.)

    Without Magic:
    1) Phoebe
    2) Paige
    3) Piper

    Scenario 3: Prue-Piper-Phoebe-Paige (just for the heck of it)

    With Magic:
    1) Prue
    2) Piper
    3) Paige
    4) Phoebe

    Without Magic:
    1) Phoebe
    2) Prue
    3) Paige
    4) Piper

    I guess that there's kind of a pattern, isn't there?


    Great post! I very agree with the non-magic pattern, Phoebe wins with karate. Good job, dude!

    i disgaree with the above message... if without magic, i think prue will always win against phoebe... even though phoebe trained first or longer than prue, prue somehow exceeded the fighting skills of phoebe... in hand to hand combat, duration is not a big factor, but the skills and ability you put into it... and in season three, it is very obvious that prue's fighting skills exceeds phoebe's... take the primrose empath for reference and wrestling with demons... even phoebe was awed and amazed in those episodes... okay... watch it again... amd piper and paige would tie, not that paige is better coz she didn't trained in fighting...

    I agree with the previous post on the Prue/Phoebe non-magical battle. IMO, Prue would win.

    I had a tough time choosing between Prue and Phoebe for the non-magic battles.  If you look at my post, I'm pretty sure that I put that they would be a close match for each other.  I mean, if Phoebe won, it would be because of her extensive training with kickboxing, and fighting.  If Prue won, it would be out of sheer ruthlessness (not to discount her fighting skills, but most of her fight comes from her innate urge to beat the hell out of whoever she's fighting).  It's a toss-up, really, IMHO.

    Noooooooooooooooooooooo! Phoebe could not beat them in a fight because even if she used her martial arts, Paige could orb out of the way, Piper could blow her up, or Prue could send her flying out of a window.

    1. Prue/Piper
    3. Paige
    4. Phoebe(Loser powers!!!!!!!!)

    ^^Paige could orb out of the way, but when she's trapped, she can't do anything. She's the only one who can't fight at all. Even piper got a hang of the fighting

    It's possible, in one of Phoebe's premonitions in season 4, she saw the source blowing up them all with Piper's power, it's been a while since I've watched any episode, but I'm pretty sure it was in Charmed & Dangerous.

    maybe in the future, piper's freezing powers will get stronger and be able to freeze good witches... after all, she is a charmed one, and their powers grow beyond their normal family line...

    See, if you're a big fan you would know about PERSONAL PLEASURE things and spells backfire on you for that, so yeah it would be like this:

    WITH MAGIC:

    1. Paige
    2. Prue
    3. Phoebe
    4. Piper

    WITHOUT MAGIC:

    1. Phoebe
    2. Paige
    3. Prue
    4. Piper

    PS. Where's Billie?

    Why is Piper the last one on both lists? I mean, with her powers, she kicks a$$!

    It would probably be phoebe she could use her empath power to use their magic against them.
