now thats just stupid, deinonychus would beat an 83 year old human
It depends, if the 83 year old person has a long stick or a knife, he would win.
If it's and 83 year old person from Komodo island with a stick or a knife, deinonychus would die, but not that easy.

Komodos are known to kill man and eat Water Buffaloes for lunch, and they do this alone.
I know Deinonychus eats Tenontosaurus for lunch, but they hunt in packs.
See, one tail slash would kill Deinonychus, also these Dragons have thick skin as thick as chainmail.
Deino's claws aren't sharp enough to go trough a Dragon's skin, so Komodo dragon wins 70/30.
Komodo Dragons don't kill Water Buffalo's instantly, they make a bite and then follow the poisioned animal often for days until it eventually dies. Which is why, again, such a strategy is not useful in a short fight.

Wait, after he bite they don't run away, they attack the Buffalo with they're claws and they're tail.
Komodos don't just leave they're prey and wait for them to die, they keep attacking they're prey until it dies.
Komodo dragons uses Intelligence, Strength, Agility, and Venom/Bacteria to kill they're prey, not just Venom/Bacteria.

Deinonychus may have had a bite force comparable to an equally sized crocodilian:

So if Deinonychus bites the Komodo Dragon on the neck, its teeth could go deep and kill the lizard.

I really don't see much of a chance for the Komodo to win this fight.

The incorrect thing is the Komodo dragon being a pet, but it uses it's tail, claws, and jaw to kill.
I don't think the tail does much.

Yeah, the dragon uses it's tail just to fight, and rarely hunts with it.
O yeah, please say your winner.

Tail whacks are blunt ways to injure, sure they can break bones in the case of a Saltwater Croc tails but they would only really be fatal if you were hit in, say, the head or neck. Anywhere else would be unlikely to kill outright.

A Komodo Dragons tail is nowhere near as powerful as a Saltwater Crocs tail, it is also a lot thinner. A solid whack would be like getting whipped, it'd do damage, but is it ever gonna be fatal? No

The lizards tail slash would break a human's ribcage, and it's stronger than a Saltwater's tail slash.
If you don't believe me, just see how Komodo's tail looks like, it's so muscular and stronger than a Martial artist's kick.
Croc's tail are bigger but it's not as mobile as the Dragon's, so the dragon has a stronger tail slash.
You're saying this because you're jealous about Komodo dragons being the 7 wonder of the world, you want the Saltie to be the 7 wonder of the world, but trust me you Aussie, thats not gonna happen!!!

Komodo's tail stronger than a Saltwater Crocs tail? The obvious size difference should be enough to tell you that is wrong. The crocs tail is huge and a LOT more muscular (after all it uses it to SWIM which requires a very strong tail to propell the croc forward). The lizard does not use it's tail for such a purpose so it is weaker, and in case you have forgotton, more mass = greater force for each swing. The crocs tail has a lot more mass and a lot more force in its swing as a result. This is a no brainer. It has nothing to do with Saltwater Crocs being Australian.

I'm not going to continue this conversation, because the obvious has already been clearly stated...

The saltwater Crocodile's tail is certainly stronger, Osemangumgum. Also, Komodo Dragon's do not have a thick hide.

Komodos use they're tail for hunting buffaloes and fighting rivals, Crocs rarely use they're tail for hunting and for fighting, they only use it for smimming, which is also rare because Crocs just stay float in the water. Komodo dragons use they're tail for swimming most of the time.
They're tail is equally strong so stop saying your Saltie is stronger than my Ora!!!
Komodo dragon would beat that raptor in a one-on-one fight.

No, they're tail slash are equally strong, Predautures Xexus, and the lizard's skin is thick enough to survive knifes and bamboos.

From Lota, an amphibian and reptile expert: Monitors' tails are powerful, yes, but you are severely overrating their strength. The force of impact from a Komodo's tail would yield about 25 kg of force enough to do some damage, but not nearly enough to shatter ribs. A whack from a saltie tail, however, will yield a good 150 kg on a female or small male.

Since when do they use their tail for hunting buffalo? That doesnt even make sense. A Komodo Dragon would use its jaws, not its tail, to hunt prey.

Oasegenggam has forgotten one of the basic laws of physics it seems, Force= Mass x Acceleration.

If the two tails on both animals were swung at the same speed, the Crocs tail would still yeild more force simply because it is a lot more massive.

Yes, it's force would have crushed any animals bones.
