Main Reason for Karna's Frequent Defeat

Lack of Proper Charioteer

 Karna matched Arjuna during the first arms competition in Hastinapura because no chariot involved.

There are many examples of this. When Duryodhana visits the forest to mock the Pandavas, both he and Karna are defeated by a Gandharva - who Arjuna has no problems with. Again, when Arjuna faces Bhishma, Drona, Karna, Kripa, Asswatthama, and Duryodhana singlehandedly, dressed as Brihannala, he defeats Karna comprehensively.

And finally, in the last battle between the two, Arjuna kills Karna while unarmed again
because chariot immerses into earth

Other Popular Charioteers

  1. Aruna of Sun
  2. Jayanth of Indra
