Top Ten Animals a Hyena Should Fight


The Top Ten

1 Lion Lion The lion is one of the big cats in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The commonly used term African lion collectively denotes the several subspecies in Africa.

Hyenas aren't bad animals and lions are more likely to scavenge from them more often than the other way around (no offense to lion fans)

It bothers me when hyenas are painted as 'evil' and lions as 'heroic' just because of a bad animated Disney movie said so.

No animal is exclusively evil, and cheering for lions against hyenas never helps because, both animals are important to our ecosystem.

9/10 lions would beat the hyena in a fight because of it's strength and weight. There's more videos of lions killing hyenas than hyenas killing lions (which is quite rare) - JandS3000

The do have a very strong rivalry.
Not sure if I can say that only lion wins this battle. Many cases have been reported where a hyena has successfully mauled a lion (or lioness). But that's much rare than lions mauling hyenas. - Kiteretsunu

The Lion King is a very bad movie that gave hyenas a bad rap because of it's awful characters. This is why so many people hate the species and root for it's natural rival.

No animal is exclusively evil like I have said before. Haters of the real animals need to do their research.

I know you don't have to like real hyenas, or real lions, or any real species, if you don't want to, but painting them as "evil" just because of some crummy animated movie said so is just not right.

2 Leopard Leopard The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera. It is one of the most adaptable and the most widespread big cat; it's secrets being:well camouflaged fur; its opportunistic hunting behaviour, broad diet, and strength to move heavy carcasses into trees; its ability to adapt to various more.
3 Wolf Wolf Often in/from packs, Wolves are carnivorous Canines that come in various colours and breeds, and have evolved to Dogs. Some breeds of Wolves are, like Dogs, domesticated, to become a Working Dog.

Hmm, that seems like a matched fight.

4 Wolverine Wolverine The wolverine, Gulo gulo, also referred to as the glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, or quickhatch, is the largest land-dwelling species of the family Mustelidae.
5 Honey Badger

Have nothing against honey badgers but they can be pretty mean animals. I say the hyena wins the battle if the honey badger is Bunga from The Lion Guard, but otherwise, either animal can win.

6 Dingo Dingo The dingo is a wild dog found in Australia. Its exact ancestry is debated, but dingoes are generally believed to be descended from semi-domesticated dogs from East or South Asia, which returned to a wild lifestyle when introduced by Aborigines into Australia.
7 Badger Badger Badgers are short-legged omnivores in the family Mustelidae, which also includes the otters, polecats, weasels and wolverines.
8 Dog Dog The domestic dog is a wolf-like canid in the genus Canis, and is the most widely abundant terrestrial carnivore.

no no no!

9 Hyena Hyena Hyenas or hyaenas are any feliform carnivoran mammals of the family Hyaenidae /haɪˈɛnᵻdiː/. With only four extant species, it is the fifth-smallest biological family in the Carnivora, and one of the smallest in the class Mammalia.

Yes... The real animal is far more important than the abominations known as Shenzi, Banzai and Ed, plus the hyenas from The Lion Guard are awful and shouldn't be appreciated, either.

Like what they do at birth...

10 Wild Dog

The Contenders

11 African Wild Dog
12 Fox Fox Foxes are small to medium sized animals and belong to the Canidae family along with other animals such as jackals, wolves, and domestic dogs. There are 37 species of fox but only 12 are considered true Vulpes. A foxes main prey are birds, fish, berries, insects, and rabbits. Some of the best known species more.
13 Bear Bear Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. Bears are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans, with the pinnipeds being their closest living relatives.
14 Chicken Chicken The chicken is a type of domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the red junglefowl. It is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 19 billion as of 2011.

No comment...

15 Wildebeest
16 Cat Cat The "House Cat", also known as the Domestic Cat or the Feral Cat, is a small feline, a good hunter, and comes in a variety of colours and fur patterns. Contrary to popular belief, however, they are not truly domesticated.

6, 12, 13, and 15 are unfair, the hyena would totally win...

17 Rabbit Rabbit Rabbits are small mammals in the family Leporidae of the order Lagomorpha, found in several parts of the world.

That would last one second
