Lots of other dinosaurs have challenged/been challenged by Rex in this forum. Spinosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Giganotosaurus (especially!) Allosaurus, and other big theropods are examples. Since some/many/few people have said T.Rex would win/lose, is it still King of all carnivorous dinosaurs? Or is its reign forgotten as numerous discoveries larger dinosaurs and Jurassic Park 3 have been made?

The T-rex had was his huge and destructive jaws. The jaws are the primary weapon of any theropod dinosaur. Their legs couldn't kick, they couldn't tail whip, nor could their arms grasp and twist like in Jurassic Park. so what's left is the jaws. T-rex was one of the most formidable predators seen on earth, after millions of years of evolution, it grew to be 13m, 6-7 tons, with binocular vision and a skull with power that could crush an ankylosaur's armor. T-rex as a predator had the most challenging prey among other large predators, although Giganotosaurus did have Argentinosaurus on it's list. But I still think T-rex is the king.

Well, I've read that Allosaurus used its tail to whip rivals (other Allosauri) in contests over leadership.

Maybe he's thinking of Sauropods.
Besides which, after something like a century of having its image boosted, I don't think T. Rex is ever going to stop being the king in my lifetime, even if they find something 1.5 times bigger or whatever.

I'm betting that the largest T-rex found still wasn't full size.

I know that, but you said that we were in for it, which unless I am mistaken, is used to imply something shocking. So, what's so shocking?

Yes, I think the Tyrannosaurus Rex is the king of dinosaurs, and its most famous dino ever, but not really strongest, largest and smartest. If comes Spinosaurus vs. Trex, I think the spino takes win.

Tyrannosaurus will always be considered "da King". And, in relation to its tough environment, it was "da King" (I love saying that, lol).:()

Tough environment as in it had to hunt Lambeosaurus, Triceratops, Ankylosaurus, Edmontosaurus, Anatotitan, Pachycephalosaurus, etc., etc. It lived in a time when volcanoes were very active. Other rexes were very territorial, so space was a problem. That's why Tyrannosaurus evolved into a pack hunter with such destructive weapons.

Yeah, a whole lot o' the world's most famous dino stars, probably that's why they put up Spino to defeat Rex once and for all.

T. rex wasn't so stupid as to even think about hunting ankylosaurus. The hadrosaurs would have been much more heavily hunted, seeing as T. rex was built to hunt them.

Give me proof that T. rex was a pck hunter. It wasn't.
