Honestly,I have looked through this discussion. You shouldn't be allowed to even post answers to this question if you don't understand the dinosaurus. You are making (inaccurate) assumptions about these carnivores, using size as a reference for assumption, and taking charactists of modern animals, and applying them to these dinosaurs to predict a fight. Dinosaurs were different.

I've studied dinosaurs my whole life. I've looked at different cavaties, helped conclude some hunting characteristics, design models, apply hypothetical muscle to skeletons.

Giganotosaurus was probably the strongest carnivore of the jurassic. However, most of you..geniuses...have stated it is 1.5x larger, and it's bite is 1.5 times stronger? First of all, on average, a giganotosaurus was a few feet longer. Of course, resent discoveries show bones, bones larger than the respective bone in sue. Tyrannosaurus was up to 15 meters long, up to 50 feet. They were heavier build than thought, easily getting up to 9 tons. Larger specimens muscle mass would put a rex up to 12 13 tons.

It was smarter than giganotosaurus, and it hunted prey it had to fight for. Tyrannosaurus, not only may very well be bigger again, but the strength of the animals doesn't even compare guys. I could legitimately right a 6 page essay on this topic, but I am not going to get into this here.

To keep it brief, I suggest doing a little bit of research before making foolish conclusions, or if you can't do the research, don't post. A Tyrannosaurus Rex would kill a Giganotosaurus more times than not in a fight. Simply overall the most powerful carnivorious dinosaur to ever walk the earth. That is NOT debatable. It isn't.

good day

Who the hell are you claiming to'be studied dinosaurs your whole life yet most of the very basic informations that beginners should know, you've got it all wrong.
Dinosaurus??? Seriously?
Giganotosaurus lived in the Jurassic??? Any noob could look on Wikipedia and found out it ruled the Late Cretaceous.
Only the trolls and fanboys get the wrong information, 50 Tyrannosaurus are estimated using very fragmentary specimen like UCMP 137538 or UCMP 118742, the bones discovered barely made up 1 or 2% of the skeleton, is that reliable AT ALL? I'll post more later, it's getting late where I'm from. Hope you look up some of these things and start debating seriously, BTW I agree on T.rex would have a better chance of winning having most of the advantages.

WTF Giga didn't f*cking live in the f*cking Late Jurassic. It's probably because of a brain aneurysm, or are you naturally this stupid?

T.rex was smaller but a bit smarter, and his jaws were more powerful, but Gigantosaurus was bigger, faster and his teeth were sharper and longer, so i would put my money on Gigantosaurus.And probably when T.rex tried to bite Gigantosaurus, his mouth could hardly reach Gigantosaurus's neck.

I'm going with Gigantosaurus.It was about 7-9 Meters tall.And i think about 9-11 meters long.I don't know.Because i was told that the Wiki can change.But t.rex was slightly smaller.And i think the jaws are not as strong as Gigantosaurus.But in my opinion T.rex was less intelligent.But i think T.rex would have an advantage in sight.Because it's skull was Broader yet (slightly) bigger.So it was a possibility that ist could headbutt the Giant.But since Gigantosaurus is bigger and probably stronger then t.rex it would probably win because it has stronger jaws.And i think T.rex was less intelligent.

Giganotosaurus was about 4m tall at the hips, and 13.2 meters long at maximum. T.rex was slightly smaller, but it easily has a stronger bite than Giganotosaurus. T.rex was also the more intelligent of the two, it lived about 40 million years after Giga and was more highly evolved.

IMO the size difference between these two is not much of an advantage, T.rex had the stronger bite and was more robust and strongly built. T.rex wins.

T Rex is heavier, has a stronger bite, more intelligence and even though slightly smaller it was a bit more agile, also t Rex is much more stronger. I'll have to go with the t Rex. 100/89

Ok reading everything and I mean everything in the comments I have come to the conclusion( I do now a lot about animals and dinosaurs) I have cone to belive that giga would win 70-75% of the time while trex at 25-30% of the time. What I know is size is crucial in all fights between similar animals. For instance when two males compete the larger one wins 99.99% of the time. So saying size doesnt matter is completely wrong. It is a major part in survival of the fittest. One last thing just to be clear my fav Dino is therizinasaurus. Just sayin so I am coming from a neutral standpoint.

Size never matters.Because the smaller animal could be more agile.Now how about you go and complimate that on a different forum.

Size DOES matter, just ask the female population and see what they say.

For the las time, t.rex was BIGGER! Using the UCMP 137538 you get size of 15,2 tons and around 15-16 m. Tough its very fragmentary specimen. But Sue was an average t.rex and even it weighed 13 tons wich is more than any gigas weight.
