If you're looking for the other side (and the whole idea of a competition on this is pretty silly), you've got an egg cell that draws the sperm in, is set up to allow one and only one sperm nucleus in, holds a mixture of nutrients and cellular components that supports the growth and development of a whole new multi-celled individual, against a simple mobile cell that does not on its own move all that far, following basic chemical cues to do a not-very-complicated job.

Hmm, indeed. Egg for the win - just look at the wastage produced during oogenesis and limited numbers they are produced in!
