The Top Ten

I've just seen a video of different animal fights and their violence is unbelievable. Animals fight for their lives and only then would you see their real power. Tigers are rarely attacked hence you rarely see them fight with all of their strength. When little animals get hurt they become two times faster and more fierce, something you can rarely see in lions and tigers also because of their courage. Same thing applies to other large animals. But, taken all into account, speed, stamina, prowess, ability in general, tiger takes the top. It beat lions almost always and lions beat crocodiles and rhinos... Other comparison is only imaginary because lions do not meet bears and so on.
WHOEVER MADE THIS LIST IS DUMB TIGERS ARE THE LARGEST AND STRONGEST BIG CATS ONLY Ligers are larger. Tigers can jump over a ten foot fence with a 450 kg bull in their mouth and tigers also have the strongest big cat bite force rivaled only by the jaguar, tigers are also known to hunt, kill and eat brown bears
The Tiger is not only humongous, but is deadly. It's sharp claws and terrifying teeth can rip any prey to shreds. It has amazing eyesight and super fast speed. They can leap great distances. They are also one of the smartest predators. They know where and how to kill their prey. The only animals that can compete with a tiger are lions and maybe grizzly bears.

Think, people! Elephants weigh tons and can uproot trees, turn over SUVs, and destroy all other animals on this list! The elephant is also smarter than every other creature here except maybe a gorilla, and even a gorilla could get destroyed by an elephant. Turn over to mythical creatures and you will see that even a phoenix or pegasus would get defeated by a really strong elephant. Unicorns would probably come close. So would serpopards or minotaurs. Many dragons and sea serpents would meet their fates at the hands of an elephant. Ganesha himself received most of his glory from elephants. According to the top rank, a crocodile can almost beat up a great white shark. Well, then, why isn't the great white ahead of it? Elephants could crush almost all living things that ever existed, living, extinct, and mythological. Maybe there will be a creature that is to come that can destroy an elephant. But in all stories ever told, besides holy creatures and beings, humans, elves, properly equipped dwarves, some and maybe the strongest dragons and tigers could destroy the great elephants. When the Romans destroyed Carthage of Libya, Hannibal, a general from Carthage, rode upon an army of elephants on the northern border of Rome. Even with catapults and brilliant strategists, Rome was unable to destroy it. Find another creature that can defeat the greatest empire that ever existed! Let's see, elephants are in fourth place. Gorillas in third. Isn't an elephant smarter than a gorilla? Maybe not, but can a gorilla uproot a tree and fling it a hundred feet away? No!

Can a black bear do the same? No! Crocodiles? An elephant may not be able to crush a crocodile with one stomp, but an elephant can lift a crocodile and fling it a mile away, as crocodiles aren't even close to elephant weight and elephants can lift around 200 times their own weight! This may have been a long comment, but it just shows never to mess with elephants!
Elephant weighs over 6000kg and can carry more than 9000kg. As for crocodile killing a great white shark that would never happen a crocodile would never meet a great white in the ocean. Please note leopards lions have been observed killing crocodiles. Crocodiles isn't the number one not by along shot.
Go elephants! They weigh tons are cute and very very very very strong! Also very fun to ride! So cool I love them and I am glad they are #1

These creatures are made for battle. They have a brute paw swipe. A simple tiger's paw swipe rips a person's neck off. The lion has a much more powerful swipe so it could do tons more damage. Furthermore, they always take on everything. Tigers prefer not to attack. Lions also, are smarter being more social and have much more muscle. Their mane furthermore, protects, them from any serious bites. Rather, they train to fight. Lions are also, faster and taller. They are also, about the same length as a tiger. If you see more documentaries you can see lions often kill and scare away do nile crocs in the water. Furthermore, lions kill elephants and giraffes. Male lions do 99% of the work on these lethal attacks. The lion truly is the king of the beasts.
Lion is the king of the forest
Lions can actually kill a tiger if he catches Him off guard or is quite and stealthy enough but either way if a lions ever meets a tiger the tiger will be outnumbered

The saltwater crocodile has the world's most powerful bite force. A saltwater crocodile over 4.5 metres (15 ft) in length can exert over 2.2 tonnes (5, 000 lb) of pressure per square inch (PSI). Males of even larger sizes can exert around 3 tonnes (6, 600 lb) of pressure per square inch. They can smash through bone like you would eat toast. A 5 metre (16 ft) saltwater crocodile can kill an adult human with a single bite.
A crocodile can kill a great white shark by the way and nothing can prey on it only little crocodiles are preyed on. They have been around for millions of years. There is a chance a crocodile can kill an elephant because it is worlds greatest stealth hunter. I've seen a video when a crocodile killed a bull elephant
Strongest bite in the world. Even though sluggish by nature it is very fast. They can grow very big. Up to 1 ton. It is the only animal that can prey on lions.68 teeth in its mouth to crush bone

9Kodiak Bear
A kodiak bear could crush a bowling ball with a bite. Decapitate a moose with swipe. It should be #1. Bears often kill tigers is Russia where the 2 coexist. Tigers only kill hibernating bears and subadults. A kodiak bear can easily kill a elephant as tigers and lions have done so. It is also, smarter than all but the elephant in this list. They have sacrificed agility for brute strength. They also, have speed though. They run as fast as any tiger or cat. They have blunt, but longer claws. Same eyesight, as cats but better smell than dogs. They are the ultimate land predator.
Kodiak bears: 2.50 m and 900 kg


The Contenders

11Black Bear

Jaguars are the 3rd most strongest big cat on earth. Beleve it or not jaguars are stronger than leopards, and people just say that leopards are stronger because they are mare well known and the name.

It can beat all animals
Why aren't humans 1 we have nukes
Humans have guns, guns kill animals. We eat animals. It's THE WAY ITS SUPPOSED TO GO. So people are at the top. But I don't know if people should be classified as animals... unless your talking about politicians.
