Most Dangerous Animals Including Mythical and Extinct Animals

HistoricalGuy
Ever wondered what's more dangerous, a dragon or a mosquito? A Megalodon or the Kraken? A modern Bengal Tiger or a Smilodon? Well here's the place to find out and share your vote! Just bear in mind though this is about how dangerous an animal is for everyone, not just humans. So whilst a mosquito has the largest human kill rate by far out of all proven living animals today, it doesn't necessarily mean the mosquito is the most dangerous and of course animals like sharks and lions kill large animals every day and just don't see humans that often. Has to have be an animal that's actually lived and breathe on this good Earth at some point or another or an animal that is believed by many to have actually lived breathed on this Earth (such as mythical creatures).

The Top Ten

1 Vampire Vampire

A Vampire look pretty much like a human and has the intelligence of a human so they can easily blend into human settlements and also use and create human weapons. But not only can they potentially utilise all the destructive weapons humans have at their disposal but they are also far stronger than humans and can only feed on human blood, as the human arguably is the most valuable species that makes Vampires extremely dangerous creatures indeed. They aren't anywhere near as strong as a T-Rex or the Kraken but because of Vampires human like appearance and intelligence they genuinely have the potential to wipe humans out if a few Vampires got into high positions of power such as becoming the President of the United States for example. - HistoricalGuy

And they can also turn humans (and other similar-looking species) into vampires if they get the chance. I rather live to a ripe old age than live forever, due to immortality that could cause further overpopulation. - DinoLover4242

Very dangerous creature, and would have taken over the world if this creature existed in real life. The world would have ended up being like a real world version of the Seraph of the End/Owari no Seraph scenario where humans are farmed for blood for consumption, and to turn them into vampires. I don't want vampires to exist in real life if universe travel becomes reality. - DinoLover4242

Just get some garlic and you will be good

2 Human Human Humans are not exactly wild animals, but they are not domesticated either. Humans are proven to be the most intelligent species of animals on Earth. Humans' colours vary from almost pepper black to milky white.

Humans without brains are extremely tiny and fragile compared to all other ones on this list but of course humans have a lot of weapons they've made such as guns, swords and most dangerous of all nuclear weapons. Whilst a dragon can wipe out loads of cities in it's lifetime with it's fire, a human could wipe out the entire world in just 5 minutes using nuclear weapons. Also the amount of animals humans kill a year now is billions due to humans enormous population and their dominance in the world, much more than any other animal that's proven to be alive. - HistoricalGuy

Historical Guy you really must stop underestimating humans - Unnamed Google User Remade

A Vampire is a human except they are far more stronger and have to drink human blood to survive. The question of whether a Vampire is more dangerous than a human is a no brainer. Vampires have all the intelligence and flaws of humans but they are also far more physically powerful, making them far more dangerous than humans. - HistoricalGuy

To whoever said a witch could kill a human you should really see what humans can do

3 Witch/Wizard

Like Vampires, Witches/Wizards pretty much look like normal human beings so they can blend into society which makes them extremely dangerous with all their powers. Whilst not all witches/wizards are bad and they don't have to feed on humans to survive like Vampires do which ultimately makes them 2nd, they are ultimately more dangerous than Vampires as they have a far greater potential for power with all their magical abilities and as they have human intelligence they can use and create all human weapons giving them dominance over all the animals that can't talk and they'll know how to farm which would enable Witches/Wizards to destroy animals on a mass scale like humans do. They would be able to get in positions of power and I think a Wizard or Witch in a high position of power has more capacity of potential destruction than a Vampire as Witches and Wizards have a a lot more different sorts of powers than Vampires do. But because not all Wizards/Witches are bad whilst all Vampires ...more - HistoricalGuy

Wait, aren't wizards/witches humans but with knowledge of magic? - DinoLover4242

Human intelligence combined with magical ability makes them a fairly definitive number 1 for me, although depending on which iteration of vampire is being thought of, they could also potentially be in that spot. - kempokid

4 Dragon Dragon A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures.

Whilst it may not be as big as a Megalodon or Predator X, a dragon which is commonly depicted in ancient stories is a predator and can breathe huge amounts of fire, a dragon can pretty much kill anything due to it's fire breathing capabilities. It's length is around 25-50 feet long. - HistoricalGuy

Dragons are pretty awesome, but if they were still alive(We don't know, they might be) they could cause catastrophic damage if they wanted to. Normally if you give a dragon what they want, then they will leave you alone.

DRAGONS Are Awesome! I love dragons they have been my favorite mythical animal since Kindergarten

5 Megalodon Megalodon The megalodon is an extinct species of shark which was about 59 feet (18 meters) long and hunted in the seas until about 1.5 million years ago. It was similar to today's great white shark-but three times longer and 20 times heavier. ...read more.

If Humans didn't have their brains and this list didn't count mythical creatures Megalodon would be top of this list by quite some margin. Reaching lengths of 60-75 feet in length and a bite force of over 20,000 tonnes the Megalodon is a truly monstrous creature. - HistoricalGuy

6 Basilisk Basilisk

Growing up to 50 feet long and very fast and agile, this creature truly is a force to be reckoned with. It's teeth also contain deadly venom so chances are just one bite alone would be enough to kill a predator the same size as the Basilisk, therefore it wouldn't necessarily have to win a fight to be able to easily kill it's opponent. At 50 feet long, it would have to have a very large diet which means plenty of animals for it to kill. - HistoricalGuy

Not to mention that one direct look into their eyes, an it's goodbye for you. - RoseWeasley

7 Predator X

Reaching a length of 50-60 feet long, Predator X was arguably the most dangerous sea creature ever until Megalodon came along. - HistoricalGuy

It is a Pliosaurus look predator x up dude - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

8 Kronosaurus Kronosaurus

This would be more dangerous than Megalodon since it may have been an active predator of, not just aquatic animals, but also some land animals, Megalodon wouldn't be much of the threats to humans (in comparison with great white sharks), since Megalodon eating people would be like eating crumbs (due to the Megalodon's size), so Megalodon would just ignore people and instead only hunt native marine animals. Kronosaurus, however, could have panicking people leave the beach of Kronosaurus still existed today. - DinoLover4242

9 Kraken Kraken The Kraken is a legendary sea monster of giant size that is said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland.

This giant squid has been known to take down large ships with ease, terrorising and killing sailors for thousands of years. It's probably a little bit bigger than the average Giant Squid, probably around 60-90 feet long. - HistoricalGuy

Why is this only 9 th? In most mythology they are literally the size of the sea and they are the actual sea floor.

10 Sarchosuchus

Could be much more dangerous than modern crocodilians. - DinoLover4242

The Contenders

Also the most famous dinosaur - BorisRule

15 Wendigo Wendigo

This should be on the TOP 10 - CedreticFomento

16 Livyatan Livyatan

Unlike modern orcas, livyatans were likely solitary hunters, and, unlike Megalodon, would be threats to humans due to being known to prey on various other mammals (including other whales) and if they mistaken boats for whales (unlike modern whales, which do not mistaken boats for whales), these boats would be damaged/destroyed by these terrifying predatory whales. - DinoLover4242

17 Chimera

A hybrid of various animals could be dangerous if mixed with large predators like lions and venomous animals like venomous snakes. - DinoLover4242

18 Titanoboa Titanoboa

New evidence suggests that real Titanoboa fed on fish and may have NOT fed on tetrapods (unlike pop culture Titanoboa), so this wouldn't be a threat to humans if Titanoboas are still alive today. - DinoLover4242

19 Goblin

Ye I am goblin and I'm deadly

20 Liopleurodon Liopleurodon Liopleurodon is a genus of large, carnivorous marine reptile belonging to the Pliosauroidea, a clade of short-necked plesiosaurs. The two species of Liopleurodon lived during the Callovian stage of the Middle Jurassic Period.

Would be as dangerous as Kronosaurus if both were still alive today. - DinoLover4242

21 Mosquito Mosquito Spanish for "small fly," mosquitoes are flies that have been known to cause various diseases . A sample of diseases caused by mosquitoes: malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus .

A little insect known for spreading diseases and viruses. - DinoLover4242

22 Emu Emu The emu is the second-largest living bird by height, after its ratite relative, the ostrich. It is endemic to Australia where it is the largest native bird and the only extant member of the genus Dromaius.

They can dodge bullets and overpower most other birds - Unnamed Google User Remade

How is this the most dangerous bird? I haven't seen a single record of a man killed by an emu. - DinoLover4242

23 Electric Eel Electric Eel

This fish can kill you with electricity. And no, this thing is a knifefish and not an eel (despite its name), and eels don't have electrical weaponry that electric eels have. - DinoLover4242

24 Great White Shark Great White Shark The great white shark, also known as the great white, white pointer, white shark, or white death, is a species of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans.

25 Chupacabra Chupacabra

Are said to drink blood of goats, sheep, and other farm animals, but I never heard of any reports of them drinking human blood. - DinoLover4242

26 Human Giant

Giants would be threats, unless they aren't aggressive and are friendly, like one of them was in Disney's BFG (Big Friendly Giant). - DinoLover4242

27 Troll

I'm not sure what trolls are we talking about here. - DinoLover4242

28 Argentinosaurus Argentinosaurus Argentinosaurus is a genus of titanosaur sauropod dinosaur first discovered by Guillermo Heredia in Argentina. The generic name refers to the country in which it was discovered.

How would this animal be dangerous? It's likely just a peaceful giant, probably much more gentle than today's giraffes and elephants, who can be dangerous. - DinoLover4242

Why though? It wouldn't mean to step on anyone who aren't threats. - DinoLover4242

29 Loch Ness Monster Loch Ness Monster The Loch Ness Monster (also known as Nessie) is an aquatic creature which reputedly inhabits Loch Ness (a lake in Scotland). Nessie is one of the most famous cryptids in history. The earliest report of the monster was in A.D. 565 where Irish monk Saint Columbia was the first person to record having ...read more.

I have a pet Loch Ness monster. Hers name is sprinkles and she got married to a tiger a year ago and just gave birth to a little gremlin baby.

It could be dangerous if it were real and if it actively hunts some land animals (including humans), not just aquatic animals such as fish. - DinoLover4242

30 Centaur Centaur A centaur, or occasionally hippocentaur, is a mythological creature with the upper body of a human and the lower body of a horse.

Some Centaurs could be dangerous, depending on an individual, if they were real. - DinoLover4242

31 Cyclops

Take a look at Sinbad legend and you'll figure out what would be so dangerous about cyclops if they were real. - DinoLover4242

32 Cerberus Cerberus

Is Hades' (mythical person) dangerous pet and could eat people if it was real and went to real world. - DinoLover4242

Smilodon stabs its prey's throat to finish off their prey before eating their prey's carcass. - DinoLover4242

35 Gigantopithecus Gigantopithecus

Really? Could such an ape be as dangerous as modern gorillas, or even their closest living relatives, the orangutans, if they were more peaceful than modern apes? - DinoLover4242

36 Fattail Scorpion

This is the most venomous scorpion in the world. One milligram of its venom is enough to kill an adult male horse.

37 Hippopotamus Hippopotamus The common hippopotamus, or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous mammal in sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus.

The most dangerous animal of Africa, and possibly the deadliest real life modern animal on Earth, other than humans. - DinoLover4242

38 Tiger Tiger The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognizable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside.

Bomb

39 Griffin Griffin

Could be almost as dangerous as dragons (if both were made real), except without fire-breathing. - DinoLover4242

Griffons are mythical large carnivorous birds and would be a danger to humans if they actively hunt humans, as the T.V. show, Beast Legends https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beast_Legends, have shown (although that show was criticized by many people for some reason). - DinoLover4242

40 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.

What? Wolves don't normally hunt humans, that's just a myth, real wolves normally only hunt humans if they're too sick or old to hunt natural prey such as deer, etc. - DinoLover4242

41 Phoenix Phoenix

Let’s set this land on fire, watch the humans burn.

Never go in the lake of this sea monster. if you are swimming and you see something with a long neck pop its head out of the water and go back... RUN!

44 Carcharodontosaurus Carcharodontosaurus Carcharodontosaurus is a genus of carnivorous carcharodontosaurid dinosaurs that existed between 100 and 94 million years ago, during the Cenomanian stages of the mid-Cretaceous Period.

This would be very dangerous to humans if it still existed today, due to being gigantic and predatory at a same time, would even become rivals of T. rex if they both lived at the same place and time. - DinoLover4242

45 Vampire Bat Vampire Bat

This bat spreads deadly diseases and viruses while drinking blood. Very potent species. - DinoLover4242

46 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.

A very dangerous king of the cats, or king of the grasslands (not jungles, since lions live in savannas, not jungles as how children shows/books seem to show), the females are the ones that do the hunting (normally). Could you imagine what it would be like if a pride of lions decided to go after you? - DinoLover4242

47 Alligator Alligator An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The two living species are the American alligator and the Chinese alligator. Additionally, several extinct species of alligator are known from fossil remains.

Alligators have been known to kill people, despite not being much of a man-eater as the crocodiles. - DinoLover4242

48 Crocodile Crocodile Crocodiles or true crocodiles are large aquatic reptiles that live throughout the tropics in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia.

The most dangerous modern non-avian reptile, the large crocodiles have killed lots of people in history and today. - DinoLover4242
