In this article, we introduce the epic of "Sundiata or the Epic of Manding" and compare its epic aspects with the battle of Rostam and Esfandiar in the book of Ferdowsi's Shahnameh. These two stories have similarities and differences that can be distinguished from the inability of the defeat of the rival in the initial battle and the mystery of the invincibility, the betrayal of the common cause of the death of the two valleys, the attachment to the power and the throne and the crown of the anti-heroes, The prediction of Death's death, the choice of children to meet rivals and the death with a stick of wood.  Comparison of the history of Rostam and Esfandiar and the history of the battle of Sundiata with Sumauru, despite the cultural differences and the geographical distance they have, what are the similarities and differences of the epic aspect? The research method in this paper is documentary and of a descriptive-analytical type.
