Letterkenny: The 10 Best Fights

Letterkenny: The 10 Best Fights

Letterkenny may be the Canadian capital of dust-ups, but these scraps really stand out as some of the best fights on the series.

There are roughly 5000 residents of Letterkenny and there isn’t a single one among them who doesn’t enjoy a hearty scrap. This small town has more than its fair share of problems, but it seems that nearly all of them can be solved by a pair of fists.

Throughout the series, Wayne has shown that he’s willing and able to take on all challengers to defend his title of “Toughest Guy in Letterkenny”. These fights are simple, yet epic, action-packed, and set to one of television’s greatest soundtracks. While the supporting cast of hicks, skids, and hockey players may not be as formidable with their hands as Wayne, this hasn’t stopped them from being involved in some of the show’s most celebrated brawls.

Wayne And Shoresy Vs. JJ Frankie JJ

Shoresy and Wayne are opposite characters both played by the same actor, Jared Keeso. Wayne defines himself as a “good ol’ boy” with traditional morals and outstanding character. In contrast, Shoresy respects absolutely nothing and no one, spending most of his screen time boasting about sexual adventures with his teammate’s mothers.

The latest season finally brought these two characters together for a battle against Shoresy’s rival, Jean-Jacques Fran├žois Jacques-Jean (JJ Frankie JJ for short). After receiving a season-ending slashing from Shoresy, JJ Frankie JJ arrives with backup looking for revenge. Wayne doesn’t particularly like Shoresy, but he greatly respects his work ethic and won’t stand for an unfair fight. With some help from Axe and Slash, the Quebec goons are chased off, and Shoresly leaves Letterkenny behind to pursue his hockey dreams in Triple-A in a comedy spin-off arriving in 2022.

Tyson Vs. Joint Boy

When Letterkenny starts to have issues with unruly youths, it’s up to Wayne and the gang to gather the kids together and teach them a lesson about their behavior. In addition to chips and hot dogs, they also provide the kids with a variety of alternate activities to try instead of vandalism and mailbox stealing.

Tyson and Joint Boy recommend that the youths learn a martial art, but disagree on whether Joint Boy’s boxing or Tyson’s Muay Thai is the superior one to master. After spending almost no time debating, the two square off and start trading blows to settle it. However, the fight ends in a stalemate as Tyson and Joint Boy swiftly knock each other out, leaving nobody standing. It’s a quick sequence but completely hilarious.

Letterkenny Vs. Diner Roid Yanks

During season 8 of the hilarious Canadian comedy series, Wayne’s sister Katy finds herself romantically entangled with Dierks, a man she meets while visiting a state-side strip club. Wayne hates Dierks almost instantly, saying he’s met a million guys like him and he’s the worst of them all. Despite this, Wayne never objects to his relationship with Katy, saying she’s a big girl who can make her own decisions.

Unsurprisingly, Dierks ends up cheating on Katy and receives a beat-down from everybody in her extensive social circle. In response, a mob of Dierk’s roid junkie cousins ambush the Letterkenny residents at a diner with the hope of evening the score. Instead, they embarrass themselves trying to intimidate the group, and also receive a rural community thrashing.

Squirrelly Dan And Daryl Vs. Sammy Sammich

Letterkenny is a community deeply enriched by the culture of their Irish ancestors, so it’s no surprise that St. Patrick’s Day is a very big occasion. The annual holiday party at the Ag Hall attracts nearly everybody in the town, as well as some undesirable degens from up-country.

When these degens began to harass the town mascot, Pitter Patty, Squirrelly Dan arrives to chase off the fools and claim the title of Pitter Patty for himself. Unfortunately, as Dan starts gaining the attention of attractive women, competing mascot Sammy Sammich is overcome with jealousy and attacks Dan. Just when it seems all hope is lost, Daryl pounces on Sammy Sammich to save the day. Among fans, this moment is forever known as “The Rise of Legen-Dary”.

Winter in Letterkenny is brutal, but not even that will stop the hicks from helping out a friend in need. In the opening of season 3, Wayne and company pay a visit to a bar on the Rez and promptly begin to completely beat the crap out of a set of troublesome degens from upcountry.

Although she grows into one of the series’ most likable characters, Tanis is originally introduced as more of a villain. After getting ripped off in a business deal by the skids, Tanis goes on a scorched earth campaign against the entire town to regain her lost capital. Most egregiously, she burns down the hicks brand new produce stand.

This culminates with a massive brawl or a donnybrook in hockey player slang. This battle’s scale and hectic pacing make it one of the show’s most memorable. As expected, Letterkenny’s united forces emerge victoriously.

Wayne Vs. Rat-Ass

Also known as sh*tty wolverine, Rat-Ass is one of the first people Wayne takes on in the series yet it still stands as one of his greatest bouts. Rat-Ass is a pretender to the title of “Toughest Guy in Letterkenny” and is no match for Wayne head-to-head, even though he fights dirty.

The most memorable aspect of the fight is undoubtedly Rat-Ass’s grotesque appearance. He has a trademark combination of greasiness and back acne that makes viewers feel bad for Wayne when he has to touch him; even if it is with his fist.

Wayne Vs. The Chest Puffer

Known only as “The Chest Puffer”, this college chump is the toughest person in his college town. He claims, therefore, he must also be the “Toughest Guy in Letterkenny”. A claim that Wayne refuses to take lying down.

The Chest Puffer carries a swagger that seems straight out of Street Fighter II. It’s wildly entertaining to watch him try to dance around the stoic and reserved Wayne. The kid gets in some good shots, even managing to knock Wayne completely off his feet. Despite that, Wayne still comes out with the win and ends it with a handshake of respect.

Hicks And Natives Vs. The Degen All-Stars

“Degens” is a label that the residents of Letterkenny slap onto those that they feel are better left out of society. While it’s not set in concrete terms, it’s made clear that hateful activities quickly earn a person the label of degen. In a community like Letterkenny where everyone is accepted for who they are, the only real enemies are narrow-minded individuals.

The biggest brawl of the series sees the degens unite to form “The Degen All-Stars”. Led by Alistair Orson Westwood Yates, this group of undesirables descended onto the community cookout looking to cause havoc. Instead, they were sent packing by the hicks and natives’ combined forces. This team-up may not be as grandiose as some of the MCU’s hand-to-hand fights, but it was epic nonetheless.

Wayne Vs. Joint Boy

The season 1 melee that sees Wayne face off against Joint Boy remains the golden standard for the series, even after 10 seasons of production. Joint Boy is another person with a claim to the “Toughest Guy in Letterkenny” crown with a resume to back it up. Joint Boy once took on four bouncers at a strip club and beat a guy for making unwanted advances at his sister, resulting in some jail time.

While there’s typically little doubt that Wayne will win his fights, the tussle with Joint Boy is an exception. Blows are consistently traded back and forth until Joint Boy finally hits the pavement. The entire sequence is brilliant and ends perfectly with Wayne’s final line, “Wanna come to a super soft birthday party?”. Most fights in Letterkenny end with a handshake, but this one ends with a cupcake.
