I started reading the Dunk and Egg novellas thanks to you good people.
One of my favorite things about Dunk is how his fights turn out in the first two stories. He isn't really a polished fighter at all. He always takes a beating, but he can tough it out long enough to get to his opponent. In the heat of the moment, he falls back on what he learned fighting other kids in Flea Bottom. Basically, Dunk wins fights because he's 6'11, he's strong as hell, and he won't give up even when he's hurt.
ETA: I know ASOIAF spoilers are ok here, but if that doesn't include the Dunk and Egg tales, I'll take this down.
