Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 1, Verse 6

Chapter 1: Observing the Armies on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra
Verse: 6
yudhamanyus ca vikranta
uttamaujas ca viryavan
saubhadro draupadeyas ca
sarva eva maha-rathah

There are the mighty Yudhamanyu, the very powerful Uttamauja, the son of Subhadra and the sons of Draupadi. All these warriors are great chariot fighters.

Duryodhana further embellishes the theme of the strength of the Pandu army by mentioning the names of several powerful fighters. In the hierarchy of fighters lowest are the ardha-ratis, those who can fight with less than one opponent. A yodha can fight with the single opponent. A maha-rathi can fight with ten thousand opponents and an ati-rathi with unlimited opponents. All the fighters mentioned by Duryodhana are in the category of ati-rathis.

Please read the Sanskrit Verse and the Prabhupada's Purport.
