Top 10 Deadliest Carnivorous Dinosaurs

The Top 10 Deadliest Carnivorous Dinosaurs, in my opinion in scientific research and/or the web. I've been enjoying dinosaurs for almost ten years, and after comparing the statistics of the carnivorous dinosaurs, here's what I think of as the perfect Deadly Carnivore Dino list (sorry I'm not putting Tyrant King at first). By the way this is only for carnivores. No herbivores included. Sorry my herbivore fans.- RaptorOnFire1206, Creator of the List.

The Top Ten

1 Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur. It also had a tremendous bite force, the strongest of any Dinosaur and living terrestrial animal. Its bite force reached up to 12,800 pounds (roughly ...read more.

I think they are really strong and have loads of teeth so they should be meat eaters.

In an open plain, a T-Rex would probably win. Although it IS overrated, as it pathetic compared to a Sauropod, it IS more powerful than a Spino, assuming it's not in a swamp.

Strongest, Smartest (of the "big boy" carnivore dinos), best eyesight, and just bad ass. No one beats T-Rex

Deltadromeaus is much faster and stronger and the same size so BEAT IT T.REX deltadromeaus should be number 1 and who ever disagrees search it up

2 Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus

This guy, while he will lose to a Rex unless, in a wet area, he is the undoubted champion of the swamp.

I like there back and the picture makes me think they are meat eaters.

Spinosaurus was the biggest carnivorous dinosaur ever it could just topple T. Rex into the ocean.

It whas so big and it could swim so I think it's the deadliest dinosaur ever.

3 Giganotosaurus Carolinii

The Giganotosaurus is bigger than Tyrannosaurus Rex and it could slay the fish eating Spinosaurus so it should be on top.

Well of course... Giganotosaurus Carolinii is probably the greatest land predator of all time... Until Godzilla came to town! Nah just kidding. But of course Giga ought to be the new king!

Giga was a deadly killer that in my opinion should be Number 1 because it hunted in packs and rarely was found alone so it could take on pretty much and other predator because of that fact.

By far my favorite Dino I also play ark my username on Xbox is chosenrabbit369

4 Carcharodontosaurus Saharicus

Carcharodontosaurus can kill anything because it is larger than the stupid T. Rex, Spinosaurus only hunts fish so Carcharadontosaurus can best it easily and it can beat giganotosaurus 60 percent

Should be higher than Giga. Has larger and thicker teeth, and a slightly thicker skull. Had similar built and they both had short arms. While Giga was more fast and smart.

How is this creature not higher on the list? Certainly is deserves at least a top 5. Although I can't really say there is much evidence to support just how deadly it was.

The third-largest land predator after Spinosaurus and Giganotosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus is basically an oversized version of the famous Allosaurus. Studies have shown that Carcharodontosaurus has the same brain function and size as an Allosaurus, and have the same attacking strategies. The only thing that sets Carchar apart from Allosaurus is that Carcharodontosaurus is about 45 feet long, longer than a 41 foot long T-Rex, and much longer than a 39 foot long Allosaurus. But there is still another similarity between Carchar and Allo: They WEREN'T, yes WEREN'T, the top predator of their time. They were both 2nd to the top: Carcharodontosaurus was ruled by Spinosaurus, and Allosaurus was under the mighty reign of Saurophaganax (though Sauro is thought to be a new specimen of Allosaurus by some scientists). Still, Carcharodontosaurus is a formidable predator, and is very experienced at fighting after all these years sharing the homeland of Spino. - RaptorOnFire1206

5 Rajasaurus Narmadensis

Rajasaurus the pride of india is scientifically stronger than t rex and probably the strongest among all so it should have been in top

It would be stronger than tyrannosaurus because it is stronger and probably has stronger bite force.

My name is Raja so does that mean this dinosaur is my spirit animals? That is so cool. On the plus side, its scientifically stronger than t-rex.

It should be on first because it is powerful then T-Rex and it is scientifically proven.

6 Tarbosaurus Bataar Tarbosaurus is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that flourished in Asia about 70 million years ago, at the end of the Late Cretaceous Period.

This dino also reffered as the Asian t-rex was the apex predator of Asia and is the same height as T-rex but 3-5 feet length shorter the only difference is that the Tarbosaurus is faster and the T-rex is stronger.

Cool! Deadly, but cool!

Was 38-40 feet long

Is my favorite dino

7 Utahraptor Ostrommaysorum

In packs, this raptor could take out anything but a sauropod. Nobody messes with the sauropod. Not even a Rex or a Spino.

The Utahraptor lived in packs and could hunt down even the deadliest of dinosaurs, in a pack, it could take down a Spinosaurus or Tyrannosaurus, and was on top of the food chain at its time. Not only that, it was one of the fastest dinosaurs ever.

Should be higher. This thing was very lethal. It had huge sickle-shaped claws. This was a huge running MEAT-SHREDDER!

This should be at least #5 if not higher. Deadly carnivore with a huge sickle claw and razor sharp teeth.

8 Velociraptor Mongoliensis

Needs to be Higher on the list. But you are right. they weren't "6 foot Turkeys", like Jurassic park said. They would have been extremely dangerous, they were indeed pack hunters. They had the retracting claw on their feet. They looked nothing like Jurassic park said. They most likely had feathers, were short, and had a very long, upward-pointed tail.

Should be number one. extremely smart and could take down a Tyrannosaurus rex if in a pack

They are so cool, probably my favorite dinosaurs, and also they killed in groups

Should be higher on the list

9 Saurophaganax Maximus

Dude Sauro was an allosaur it could slice anyone to bits at that size and strength like come on this is an obvious pick

Similar to Carcharodontosaurus, Saurophaganax is a basic oversized Allo. This dinosaur in 43 feet long, almost the same length as Carcharodontosaurus (45 feet) and Tyrannotitan (42 feet). Sauro is much bigger than his close relative, Allosaurus (39 feet), though. Saurophaganax and Allo are so closely related, and lived at the same time and place as Allosaurus did, many scientists wonder if Saurophaganax was a new Allosaurus specimen. - RaptorOnFire1206

Max size 49 feet

Saurophaganax could Kill you in minutes. You can outrun creatures like Tarbosaurus and Tyrannosaurus. This thing was THE killing machine. T. Rex is no match for S. Maximus!

10 Mapusaurus Roseae Mapusaurus was a giant carnosaurian dinosaur from the early Late Cretaceous of what is now Argentina and possibly Chile.

Mapusaurus is a close cousin of Giganotosaurus, if not a juvenile of Giga. But studies prove that Mapusaurus is a slightly different dinosaur, with a smaller, lighter build, weaker jaws, more of a pack hunter, and a slightly larger brain. Mapusaurus is about the size of T-Rex and Allosaurus, at around 40-42 feet long. Evidence suggests that Mapusaurus traveled in family groups, since bones showed baby, juvenile, and adult Mapusaurus bones scattered near each other. Mapusaurus probably hunted in packs so they could bring down the large Argentinosaurus of his time. Even though a formidable predator, Mapusaurus is not king of his land. That throne is for Giganotosaurus! - RaptorOnFire1206

This dino is very fierce

Was 40 feet long

Yeah, It is exertremely fierce and able to take down a fully grown argentinosaurus

The Contenders

11 Acrocanthosaurus Atokensis Acrocanthosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that existed in what is now North America during the Aptian and early Albian stages of the Early Cretaceous.

I love this dino, I love that it's ranked 11 instead of 52, but I have to say, Acro had one big oof getting ranked 11, no 10 or better. So to all the Acro fans reading this:
OOF.

NEEDS TO BE IN TOP 10! This could take down any of the ones above and was bigger than most of them

Are are are NEEDS ta be at least top 10
OR 1

Was 38-42 long

12 Allosaurus Fragilis

Probably the most famous theropod dinosaur next to T-Rex, Velociraptor, and Spinosaurus, made famous by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's the Lost World: A Novel, Allosaurus was one of the most wide-distributed dinosaurs of his era, and being 2nd top predator next to Saurophaganax (though recent studies showed that Saurophaganax was probably just a larger specimen of Allosaurus). Allosaurus killed prey with his regular carnosaur features: Claws, teeth, and, of course, size. It also had two bony knobs on its head, but is most possibly used to scare prey or for attracting mates, but is probably not strong enough for defense of attack. Allosaurus was also probably a swift predator, reaching up to speeds of 24-25 mph. They also say that Allosaurus was a pack hunter, since once they found about 40 Allosaurus skeletons all together in one spot, probably because they found a herbivore stuck in the mud and every five allosauruses or so try to get to the herbivore at a time, but get stuck in the mud ...more

These were actually around 30-45 feet long

Allosaurus is more aggressive than other bigger hunters

Go allosaurus should be 1

13 Troodon Inequalis

As far as dinosaurs go, Troodon was the rocket scientist of all dinosaurs. This five foot long genius dino was a dromaeosauridae, or, more commonly known as "raptor". Some scientists say Utahraptor was the most intelligent of dinosaurs, but more scientists today observe that Troodon was probably the smartest of all dinosaurs. With the IQ of a crow, Troodon was a small, intelligent raptor that usually hunted during the night. They say Troodon could see in the night, and that was when Troodon usually hunted, so he wouldn't have to confront bigger dinos of the time such as Tyrannosaurus Rex. This 2 foot tall reptile would spot prey in even the darkest of nights. And as far as dinos go, Troodon was the Albert Einstein of the dinosaurs (while we can say Utahraptor, coming in with an IQ of an eagle and coming in second place, would be the dinosaurs' Thomas Edison). - RaptorOnFire1206

14 Torvosaurus Tanneri Torvosaurus is a genus of carnivorous megalosaurid theropod dinosaurs that lived approximately 153 to 148 million years ago during the later part of the Jurassic Period in what is now Colorado and Portugal.

I really like it

Was 31-35 feet long

Wicked, coolest ever
Deadly Crazy Love,
Killer,awesome
Not here,

According to the website's URL, it does NOT say Torvosaurus, it says Sinraptor.

15 Sinraptor Dongi

Sinraptor really isn't a raptor, but a closer relative to Allosaurus and Yangchuanosaurus. I have NO idea why Sinraptor is named a "raptor", but... Well, sue the namers. This dino is a quite small Allosauridae, only reaching up to about 25 feet long and about 7 feet tall. So, really, how did this tiny allosaur reach the list? Smaller than the already puny Yangchuanosaurus, Sinraptor is known for his cunning, a little bit smarter than the not-as-bright allosaurs later in the day. Which brings us to... Yeah, Sinraptor is from the early-mid Jurassic Period, unlike Allosaurus, whom comes from the Late Jurassic period, and unlike Yang, who came into play during the mid-late Jurassic. But, like Yang but unlike Allo, Sinraptor is from China. Sinraptor uses his speed to hunt down speedy dinos such as the feathered little dino Epidexipteryx and sometimes a little bit larger herbivores such as the sauropod Shunosaurus. Which brings us to the subject of Sinraptor's speed, which can overpower ...more

Wait a minute, how did this get into number 5? It used to be number 13...

16 Tyrannotitan Chubutensis

Why is the image used to represent this species that of a Giganotosaurus made by the paleontologists at Discovery?

With tyrannosaur-like teeth on a 43' long body, this theropod was deadlier than Giganotosaurus thanks to its more powerful bite force!

One of the largest theropods of all time and closely related to mapusaurus and giganotosaurus.

Tyrannotitan is a very new dinosaur, discovered in 2005. Little information is known about Tyrannotitan since only fragments of one skeleton of a Tyrannotitan have been discovered. The bones suggest a large Allosauridae, about 40-43 feet in length (avg. At 42 feet). This early-mid Cretaceous probably competed with larger predators such as Giganotosaurus and Mapusaurus, since all three lived in the Early Cretaceous (115 mya) in Argentina. Even though not much has been known from this new theropod, he is able to shove into the list with his big size. - RaptorOnFire1206

17 Carnotaurus Sastrei

Carnotaurus, featured in Disney: Dinosaur, is a large theropod capable of taking down large sauropods with his great jaws in the Late Cretaceous South America, feeding alongside the larger and probably more deadly Abelisaurus. This 30 foot long dinosaur has spikes running down his whole body, probably for protection. A heavyweight, this dinosaur probably took down slower dinosaurs such as sauropods instead of faster iguanodonts, as shown in the movie Disney: Dinosaur. Carnotaurus's name means "meat-eating bull" because 1. Carnotaurus is a carnivore and 2. Carnotaurus has two large horns on the top of his eyes. Carnotaurus probably used his horns to cause wounds in victims, or maybe just for display and attracting mates. Anyhow, this 30 foot long dinosaur is a terror to behold. - RaptorOnFire1206

I personally think the Carnotaurus should be above the deinonychus because the Carnotaurus could bite then well, it's dead. The Carnotaurus has a bite as powerful as two alligators

Carnotaurus is more deadly than t.rex because you may have not known about true killer machine that can run on land, 35 miles per hour!

The horns make the carnotaurus look awesome

18 Oxalia Quilombensis

Oxalia was 40-45 feet long

Was 40-45 feet (12.1-13.6 meters) long.

At 40-45 feet long

Oxalia is a large spinosauridae, about the size of a smaller allosauridae, such as Torvosaurus or Yangchuanosaurus. Oxalia is basically a miniature Spinosaurus: But this 35 foot long spinosaur rarely hunted other dinosaurs except in rare conditions, such as the riverbed drying up. Usually, this Late Cretaceous Brazilian hunter mostly hunted fish and sometimes smaller crocodiles in the riverbed, sharing his land with Abelisaurus and Carnotaurus. - RaptorOnFire1206

19 Deinonychus Antirrhopus Deinonychus is a genus of carnivorous dromaeosaurid coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur with one described species, Deinonychus antirrhopus. This species, which could grow up to 3.4 metres (11 ft) long, lived during the early Cretaceous Period, about 115–108 million years ago (from the mid-Aptian to ...read more.

"Size isn't everything! " - Some Random Guy said. Well, that Random Guy is correct. Deinonychus Antirrhopus isn't a real big dino. Actually, he is pretty small, since he's a dromeosaurid like Utahraptor and Velociraptor. Well, Utahraptor may be 19 feet long and 8 feet tall, but for such a deadly dinosaur like Deinonychus, 10 feet long and 5 feet tall is way more than enough. Why? Well, first of all, Deinonychus, like most raptors, hunted in packs. Usually in groups of 7 or 8 (unlike Utahraptor's groups of 3 thru 5), Deinonychus could bring down dinosaurs several times his size, such as its favorite prey, Tenotosaurus, a 30-foot-long iguanodont. Another reason about why Deinonychus is so deadly is because of his cunning. Like all raptors, Deinonychus's brain is WAY above average, with the brain almost the size of a crow's. Deinonychus also, like all raptors, have huge, hook-clawed feet. The second toe acts like a kitchen knife: It sliced through flesh in seconds. Last of all, ...more

Yeah, this dinosaur to me is WAY more deadly than T. Rex...

20 Indominus Rex Indominus rex was the latest attraction in Jurassic World. The hybrid was created by combining the genetic traits of multiple species.

This dinosaur didn't actually exist though so it doesn't actually classify as a real dinosaur.

I don't think that this should belong. It isn't a real dinosaur, never existed.

That's a hybrid from Jurassic world dinosaurs couldn't bunch together as one Dino!

I know this is from this dinosaur is from a movie, but it is still a carnivorous dinosaur!

21 Yangchuanosaurus Shangyouensis

At 35 feet long

Yes, I'm going down the list now. Now would be Mr. Yangchuanosaurus, close cousin of his more famous (and stuck-up, in Yang's opinion) cousin Allosaurus Fragilis, made famous from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World: A Novel. Well, Yangchuanosaurus got pushed down the list because... Well, he was SMALLER. Allosaurus was matchable at 39 feet long, able to take down massive sauropods such as Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus. Whattaya 'bout Yang? Well, he's this 32-34 foot long PUNYsaurus (at least puny for his family branch, the allosauridae) that hunts down the much smaller sauropods such as Mamenchisaurus and the stegosaur Kentrosaurus. Also, Yang wasn't as fast as Allosaurus since he weighed about a ton more. Yangchuanosaurus was also not quite as intellegent.

22 Pterodactyl

This is NOT a dinosaur, it is a pterosaur, so it does NOT count.

A pterosaur not a dinosaur flies to

23 Majungasaurus Crenatissimus Majungasaurus is a genus of abelisaurid theropod dinosaur that lived in Madagascar from 70 to 66 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous Period. The genus contains a single species, Majungasaurus crenatissimus.

Majungasaurus could beat many of the dinosaurs higher up on this list because it had a larger brain than most of them and was also pretty big, it was also a proven cannibal telling us that it will go to extreme measures in dire situations.

Majungasaurus (formerly Majungatholus) was a large African hunter from the Late Cretaceous period, and one of the only dinosaurs discovered in Madagascar, an island near Africa. On Majungasaurus's island, food was scarce, so there are many skeletons showing that Majungasaurus was a cannibal, since there were Majungasaurus teeth marks on smaller Majungasaurus bones. Majunga was a medium sized predator, at around 30 feet long. It had a mighty bite force, and usually hunted rodents and lizards but sometimes became a cannibal. The dinosaur had a dome on the top of his head, probably for showing off to the females. The dome was the reason why Majungasaurus used to be "Majungatholus", because "tholus" was Greek for "dome". - RaptorOnFire1206

How did Majunga get back here?

24 Dilophosaurus Wetherilli

Dilophosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur. It contains a single known Species. Dilophosaurus is known from fossil remains found in the Kayenta formation of Arizona USA. This rock formation has been dated to the early Jurassic period about 193 mya. Dilophosaurus was among the largest carnivores of it's time about 7 meters long and had a pair of rounded crests on it's skull.

25 Megalosaurus Bucklandii

Megalosaurus! Prominently the first dinosaur ever discovered, Megalosaurus was a primitive mid-Jurassic 30 foot long monster that hunted down small mid-Jurassic sauropods. The first dinosaur ever to be discovered, Megalosaurus was named "Big lizard" because that was what the scientists thought of Megalosaurus at the time (the 1700's). Megalosaurus was big, but wasn't the most brightest of dinosaurs. Since this dino was a primitive reptile, Megalosaurus had a relatively small, unfocused brain. But this monster made up for his size, being one of the biggest theropods of his time (160 mya, 10 million years before Allosaurus). - RaptorOnFire1206

This is my favourite dinosaur it was yorkshire's top predator. Even the colour looks cool.

Its first name was scrotum humanun and that's funny
