10. Allosaurus

Image result for allosaurus

this dinosaur goes ion numbeer 10 because it was a very fast and agile dinosaur

 

9. Acrocanthosaurus

Acro goes on number 9 because it was a very aggresive carnivore and had strong bones compared to other carcharodontosaurids

 

8. Saurophaganax

Sauro goes on number 8 because it was basically allo's upgraded brother and was bigger and stronger than it was.

 

7. Mapusaurus

Mapu gets number 7 becuase it had very sharp teeth that could sink into prey like knives 

 

6. Spinosaurus

I know you fanboys might be PO at me but although its the biggest theropod it had huge claws to keep their attacks at bay, and it eats fish.

 

5. Tyrannotitan

Image result for tyrannotitan

Tyrannotitan goes on number 5 because it was one of the last evolved creatures of its family group and was very evolved

 

4. Giganotosaurus

Image result for giganotosaurus

this dino was a very big carnivore and hunted in packs like wolves, its sharp teeth were great for slicing into prey

 

3. Carcharodontosaurus

Image result for carcharodontosaurus

Carchar was the biggest of its entire family and had very sharp teeth that could drive its prey into the ground

 

2. Tarbosaurus

Image result for tarbosaurus

This dino was a force to be recon with it had the second most powerful bite force of all Land Carnivores and had tough bones to ram its attackers

 

1. Tyrannosaurus Rex

Image result for tyrannosaurus rex

The King had a 6 ton bite force that was unrivaled and it was the last theropod dinosaur ever to walk the earth before the paleogene extinction event, and it had forward facing eyes to see in 3D and had sensitive hearing, although it wasnt fast it was incredibly Durable, and was the smartest out of all the large theropods.

Tyrannosaurus is the winner by default. Long live the King!

I don't exactly agree with Allosaurus being on the list, there were many creatures stronger than it, like Albertosaurus, Zhuchengtyrannus, Daspletosaurus, Sauroniops, etc.

Great list and I agree that Trex is the undisputed king of all theropods. Although I would’ve put Giga above Carchar (that’s just me)

TheLazyFish

Jun-19-2019 9:20 PM

I think giga and carc should be above rex, since its bite force wouldn't really be a factor against creatures with necks as thick as those two, so it's more slasher v.s. stabber (based on tooth types), and my money is on the slashers, especially when their power isn't exactly dependent on the gape of their jaws, but also their neck muscles and hatchet bite.

The Rex's bite would do a hell alot more damage than the Carchardontosaurids slashing teeth, especially if the Rex gets the jump on them via ambush.

TheLazyFish

Not really, it would be like trying to break through a peach seed with the front of your mouth instead of the back while your mouth is pried open. Low bite force as a result. I think slasher is better because better chance of severing arteries and veins, but my opinion tbh.

Tyrannosaurus is the smartest of all the giant theropods, his brain is rather large compared to the rest of its body and large by comparison to other theropods of similiar size. 

Tyrannosaurus is still the KING

TheLazyFish

Aug-07-2019 2:08 PM

Well, a very large portion of that brain was used for it's senses of sight and smell, so it wouldn't actually have been that smart. Hell, even Velociraptor would have only been about as smart as a Turkey (the irony), and since it had a larger brain proportionate to Tyrannosaurus... by your logic, a T-rex wouldn't have been as smart as a Turkey... and we all know how smart those things are...

But Tyrannosaurus would still be smarter than other large theropods

TheLazyFish

Aug-14-2019 10:01 AM

Not by much, and such a small difference doesn't really make much of a difference in a fight. Like say a Tiger is a tiny bit smarter than a lion, it doesn't really make much of a difference because it's not like it's "ima use this rock as a sword" kind of intelligence, it's just a slightly better reaction time, maybe being more social. It doesn't make it a winning quality in a fight unless there's a large enough difference that the other creature can be lured into something or can be easily tricked by the smarter creature. There isn't enough of a difference for that here.

Okay beyond using Brains, T. rex has bite force, forward facing eyes giving him/her binocular vision, and are pack hunters.

TheLazyFish

Aug-17-2019 3:26 PM

Well, there is a theory that Giganotosaurus was a pack hunter, though I'm uncertain whether or not that would be true. Also, this is based on overall individual power, not on pack hunting or stuff like that. The eye sight of Tyrannosaurus is an incredible advantage, I give you that, but of course a Carcharodontosaurids can get by just fine, or else they never would have been so successful. However, here's the thing about T-rex's bite force-it can only access it's full bite force by putting whatever its biting closer to the base of its mouth. Also, the large jaw muscles would keep a T-rex from opening its jaws anywhere close to as far as, say, an Allosaurus, or an Acrocanthosaurus. Now, I don't think a T-rex would be able to put the neck of something around its size that far into its mouth. It probably would be able to get the neck partially into its mouth, but not far enough that it could really use its bone crushing bite force. At this point, the main thing the T-rex would be using would be its teeth, meant for stabbing. For maximum damage, the rex would have to bite from above or below the Carcharodontosaurus' neck, where the neck is thin enough that it can get the neck further into its mouth and use its full bite force. It would have to get past the Carcharodontosaurus' defenses first though. Now with, say, a Carcharodontosaurus, it doesn't actually need to rely on bite force alone. It's teeth are for slicing, it would need to get its teeth just deep enough into the rex's neck to hit something vital. Also, it would have a bigger gape and more likely to be able to bite the T-rex from more angles. Also, if it uses the hatchet-bite method, it could do some extreme damage if it were to hit from above, or even from below. It would be an incredibly high power attack that relies more on the impact itself. A T-rex's bite force would take more time to access (it has to push the neck deeper into its mouth and it probably would take at least a second or two to access its full bite force), and it depends more on what angle the T-rex bites from than a hatchet-bite. That's just my opinion, though.

Okay so the Tyrannosaurids and Carcharodontosaurids are roughly evenly matched. However if the K-Pg extinction were never to occur I think the power and intelligence of the tyrannosurids would have evolved to greater than the carcharodontosaurids. 

TheLazyFish

Aug-19-2019 9:16 AM

Well yeah, but at that point they probably wouldn't be Tyrannosaurids. Tyrannosaurids would probably be replaced just like Carcharodontosaurids.

Xenotaris

Aug-19-2019 5:48 PM

Yes, that's how evolution works. Either it would be the Tyrannosaurid's decendents or they would be replaced but something else. Also Tyrannosaurids are not not related to the Carcharodontosaurids. Since Carcharodontosaurids are allosauroids and not Tyrannosauroids.

TheLazyFish

Aug-20-2019 9:09 AM

When did I ever say they were related? Plus, that whole evolution argument isn't even a factor, we're talking about individual species and genera, not speculative evolution.

Nice to see you too lazyFish, and i have something to say, the T Rex had the biggest brain to body ratio of any giant theropod we know of, and it took 4th place on the top 10 smartest dinosaurs currently known to science, its cerebrum, the part of the brain associated with strategy, was huge, its gape on the other had was good as well, sorta like this.Image result for t rex gape

This is animal that could Execute a Devastating Attack

Hold on, what supports it had an 80 degree biting angle?!!!! That's nearly as large as Allosaurus' gape, which has really tiny bite muscles, and a weaker bite than a lion JUST TO OPEN it's mouth farther! There's no way with T-rex's gigantic jaw muscles it would be 80 degrees. Also... in theory, Tarbosaurus would be pretty close to intelligence to it, as well as most Dromaeosaurs and nearly, if not all avian Dinosaurs would be smarter than it. Even then, a very large portion of its brain would have been used up for sight and smell, because of how strong those sense are in Tyrannosaurus. Since it's not as smart as Stenonychosaurus or Velociraptor, which have been estimated to be only as smart as a chicken and a turkey (literally a 6 foot (long not tall) turkey) respectively, Tyrannosaurus would not have been smart at all, smarter than Carcharodontosaurus yes, but not all that smart. Anyways, it's increase in intelligence isn't incredibly important to the fight, because many times in nature smarter AND stronger creatures are killed by lesser foes in the wild, like a Tiger and a ram, boar, leopard, bull dog, wild dog, donkey (yes a donkey), lions/lionesses, crocodiles, or porcupines! Despite being stronger and smarter than almost all of those creatures, it almost always loses to some, like how it almost always to the weaker and dumber lion in a 1v1 fight. So in conclusion, intelligence and brawn aren't anything, especially when talking about an ambush hunter like T-rex or a Tiger. The main reason the Tiger loses is because it's meant for ambushing and has short stamina, as would a T-rex due to its slow speed.

Many Scientists Say T Rex was A Brawler and I I Agree with them, T rex fought many Armored dinosaurs, from Ankylosaurus to Triceratops and Other Tyrannosaurs, It had to have a huge gape in order to get its jaw around the necks of Triceratops, Ankylosaurus and Alamosaurus and Other Tyrannosaurs. It was smart in fighting too.

It was a brawler, yes, but it would have hunted weak, sick, young, or older individuals. Not the toughest of the tough. And it wouldn't really have hunted Sauropods. And a huge gape is not possibly for a creature with such powerful muscles, they would have gotten in the way of that. 80 degrees is almost the gape of an Allosaurus, a creature famous for it's tiny bite force that allows its huge gape.

@James Inkton, in science, "biggest" refers to mass.  Spinosaurus was not the "biggest" therapod by any means, but it was the longest.  

@TheLazyFish, this link explains the huge gape.  The 80 degree gape indicates when the jaw muscles reached their maximum tension limit, where they couldn't eccentrically contract (generate force) any further.  The 32 degree gape indicates optimal muscle efficiency, where the muscles could generate the maximum amount of force while still being able to concentrically or eccentrically contract.

TheLazyFish

Aug-28-2019 7:16 PM

Thanks for the explanation. Still, the gape would only allow it to use it's actual bite force around the top of the neck and the bottom, because the sides would be too tall to get to bone breaking bite force.
