Default most powerful daemonic entity?

based on your reading of the fluff, who/what do you think is the most powerful daemonic entity (either greater daemon, daemon prince, or whatever you can think of)?

I know there is no definitive answer, but just for fun

is it Skarbrand, Fateweaver (i.e. one of the exceptionally powerful greater daemons in the codex)?

is it Ghargatuloth from the Grey Knights novels, Ka'Bandha (the bloodthirster who defeated Sanguinius in their first fight), M'Kachen, or one of the other daemon characters from a novel?

perhaps one of the daemon primarchs?

finally, as far as I know, the average greater daemon is more powerful than the average daemon prince, how about an exceptional daemon prince vs. an exceptional greater daemon, for instance Angron vs. Skarbrand, Fateweaver vs. Magnus

I def gotta say Skarbrand the Exiled One, any bloodthirster that could strike Khorne himself is badass. If not him then Khornes favorite champion An'ggrath the Unbound.

I agree, he is pretty awesome. Putting a chip in Khorne's armor is like David and Goliath
But a lot of people think that when the Primarchs became Daemon princes, they actually became weaker. Like when Angron was in this one fight, they had to constantly keep protecting their worship monuments so he could stay there, or so I've heard on this forum.

But isn't An'ggrath the Unbound now Khorne's favored Bloodthirster?
Oh and Kairos is pretty awesome too from what I know of him.

I wish there was a book that was all centered around daemons in the warp. That would be cool

An interesting book, which I would dub "The Great Game Chronicles" would have the Daemon Primarchs battling one another and other Chaos Lords in the Eye of Terror/Maelstrom for the favour of their patron god(s). Now that would be a series to rival the Horus Heresy.

I do believe the novel Daemon World by Ben Counter is exactly that.

Don't read it its a trap. Also it only really has khorante daemons, and they appear late into the story, and kinda ruin it.

Two Slaanesh daemons on the first go...hmm I guess the fates have spoken emperors children here I come

I don't think there's any definite answer to your question. The power of the Chaos Gods waxes and wanes with the great game constantly, and so does their minions.

I would also love to see some more daemon on daemon action. Unfortunately I think the daemon primarchs are intentionally made VERY passive, so the scale of balance isn't upset.

Besides, Angron had a retinue of 12 bloodthirsters. Wouldn't that imply that he was more powerful than them?

We've only seen the Deamon Primarchs outside of the Eye though, i imagine they would be drastically different when they are in the Eye, with nothing draining their power away like being outside of the Eye. And Angron having a 12 bloodthrister escort doesn't really make him more powerful than the other Skarbrand and the like, Bloodthirsters seemingly have a power scale of sorts, and he could quite easily have been escorted by 12 'lesser' Bloodthirsters.
