On the one hand... Only one character from Highlander franchise?..

And then you remember... There can be only one. :)

There's more, it just seems they're not indexed properly for some reason... 

Plus there's two from Highlander: The Source

I know there's 35 already, but in my humble opinion poll can use one less character from GOT, so...

FYC:
Hornblower from Hornblower series of TV movies. Ioan Gruffudd is very good at fencing and yet people  usually don't remember that about him.

Lightsabers are quite different from usual swords, so I'm not sure they should be included here.

FYC:
Arthur Dayne

(only seen in flashbacks, but considered by many to be the greatest swordsman who ever lived)

Also, may I suggest some edits:
If all of these characters were enemies and fought one another with a single sword, who do you think would win?

I can't help but notice that none of the characters are women.  How about River Tam, Xena, Buffy Summers, Mulan, or Yu Shu Lien?

Ahhh, okay. You might update the text to clarify this one is specifically men.

Sorry,

If all of these characters were enemies
and fought one another with a single sword,
who would you think will win?

Your original text could say
"Guys" with a single sword
"Dolls" are listed here
