Arnold and Sly have been in competition for decades. The rivalry started in the '80s when the two competed at the box office. "The Terminator," "Predator," and "Commando" made Arnold a household name. Sylvester became a superstar and respected actor in the '70s after writing, directing and starring in "Rocky" (1976). The franchise continued in the late '70s and through this decade. Sylvester's movies only became more action-packed in the '80s with "Cobra" and the "Rambo" franchise. 

There is no other action movie star with the amount of box office success as Schwarzenegger. He's not just known for one or two iconic action roles. From "Conan the Barbarian," "The Terminator," "Commando," "Total Recall," "Predator," "The Running Man," "True Lies," and "Last Action Hero"—Arnold has absolutely owned the action genre. 

He's not only an action movie hero, but Arnold is revered as an American hero for his contributions to cinema.

Stallone definitely had some flops, but he's definitely remembered as a franchise action hero. The "Rocky" series has made a collective $1.3 billion worldwide. And Stallone has been nominated for an Oscar, twice, for his performance as Rocky Balboa. Also, his "Rambo" series has made $726.5 million worldwide. 

He's not only the ultimate action hero but the face of two legendary film characters.
