Who would win? The Tyrant Lizard King, the Spine Lizard from Egypt, the Giant Southern Lizard or the mammoth herd?

How many in the herd?

Well, a herd is pretty darn large. And a Steppes Mammoth is as big as a T.Rex. So if the therapods stayed clear of the herd, it can be a 1v1. But if they are caught in the stamepede, well then they're dead.

I don't know much about mammoths, but if they're anywhere near as mobile and dangerous as African elephants, the theropods don't have a chance. Besides, there's probably just too many in a "herd' for them to lose.

Well, time to use my author skills!:)

Once upon a time in the land of ''Dinosauria'', there were 3 dinosaurs battling it out for king of the dinosaurs. It was Giganotosaurus, T.Rex, and Spinosaurus.

W-wait a minute, we're missing something here. WHERE IS FREAKING CARCHDONTOSAURUS!? Jeevers, ready the mammoths!

So Jeevers released 50 Steppe Mammoth and they crushed the therapods to death. The end.

It's gonna be a herd of 5 lone mammoths versus the trio of super predators.

Well, that isn't fair, a predator can each fight a mammoth. However, the two others can come over and attack while the theropods are distracted.

If you add Carcharodontosaurus and Tarbosaurus to the mix though...

Anyone ever wonder why most tyrannosuars have little arms? If evolution had been allowed to run it's course without that blanket of ash, would those arms have grown bigger or just disappeared all together.

But, anyway, the steppe mammoths would tears those "super predators" apart.(I'm putting super predator in quotes because compared to a herd of steppe mammoths, that's what they are).
Those big tusks would be quite formidable. Stabby, stabby and all that.

The arms weren't exactly limiting the tyrannosaurs, were they? They were still mostly (Always?) apex predators., and adding larger arms wouldn't really have increased their fitness. They weren't like modern carnivorans who have to grasp onto prey with their limbs, they could just ambush their prey and crush them swiftly with those jaws. Things don't just converge into some sort of perfect super-dinosaur, different groups vary. Things like spinosaurids, ornithomimosaurs, and dromeaosaurids had long arms, but they didn't have to evolve crushing bites like tyrannosaurs because that's not something that would increase their fitness.
(Sorry if that sounds a little harsh, I was just trying to correct a misconception)

No problem, mate.
Oh, damn it, I just broke the never said mate thing.

Also, I don't think that t rex was always an apex predator. At least, for the time that they were around.

Ya know, long before t rex, there was a possibly bigger giant ruling the earth. Siats meekerorum

The specimen they found was, although a juvenile, 10 feet shorter than T. rex. You cannot just assume that because a juvenile was found that wasn't THAT much smaller than the truly giant theropods, the adult was TEH BIGGEST EVAR!111111 I imagine that Siats was probably closer to Acrocanthosaurus's size than T. rex.

Hm, yes but I just have one argument to that.

Argentinosaurus...

Their hatchlings weighed just 5 kilograms.

But they grew to...Drum roll, please...
75 000kg.
