    Battle begins 100 feet apart. Both armed to the teeth; Dovakin build is a battlemage with swords and sorcery.

    Can Aard take on Fus Do Rah?

    It's a coin flip, since Dindukin is there, Geralt is scaled to his level.

    Andy, half of your threads are about rape and violent abuse and other sick shit. But this time, you've really outdone yourself.

    Geralt is mainly a superb swordsman with superhuman reflexes, aided by some rather basic magic and his own quick thinking and experience.

    It's sad to say, but against Dovahkin he is outclassed as they will have access to high level magic and Tiid-Klo-Ul shout negating Geralt's main advantage.

    Yawn.

    Dovahkiin chugs 25 Alchemy-crafted megabuff potions in less than a second, becomes a nigh-on invincible damage sponge, proceeds to level poor Geralt.

    Geralt is a professional monster hunter. He knows how to deal with trolls. He says “Some may call this junk..” and stands perfectly still so his prey is not startled. He does not move even when a bucket is placed upon his head and all his potions, swords, and pants are taken. He bides his time, patiently, until the Dovahkiin goes AFK to complain on some forum about how shitty the game is... and then?

    He crafts a hand crossbow and shoots him in the knee!

    Just using lore and assuming both are on their peak strength, Dovahkiin has to win, obviously. That being is just extremely powerful, while a Witcher would rank rather low on an Elder Scrolls power scale. The most powerful beings in Witcher are supposedly dragons IIRC and the Dovahkiin just farts those out of the sky at will.

    Taking actual game mechanics into account, Geralt might have a chance due to being way more experienced and able to "exploit" things.

    Taking meta-knowledge and memes into account, Dovahkiin has no chance at all.

    Dovahkin because Geralt keeps being distracted by some drunk Polish guy trying to pickpocket him.

    The fight comes down to which one is more slowed down by all the plates and wooden spoons they looted out of sacks.

    Using Thu'um to slow down time negates Geralt's drug and mutation powered reflexes.
    At this point it boils to great swordsman who dabbles in some basic magic VS powerful battlemage who can also shout reality into submission.

    The only way for Geralt to have any chance would be him using assassin tactics which would be very out of character for him - although if Dovahkiin was my Skyrim character, the actual battle would most likely be a drinking contest - no point trying to kill a tru bro like Geralt.

    On this field they could be quite an even match.

    Geralt wins this by default. Dovahkin would find himself uninstalled before the battle got past 30 seconds by anyone with taste. :obviously:

    Not really. Geralt being, well, Geralt, would probably have found a way to simply mute the Dovahkiin.
    If I understand it correctly (and given that Bethesda sure as hell doesn't know or give a shit about its own lore, I might be as right or wrong as I want to), the shout power very much depends on someone's ability to be actually able to vocalize. The right herbs a morning before and you're down to "just" a battlemage.

    A simple gag stopped Ulfric from using Thu'um, so this makes sense.

    Still, it supposes that Geralt knew this encounter was going to happen and prepared accordingly, which was not specified in the OP.
