A large relative of the more famous Hyaenodon, Megistotherium was clearly one of the main predators of its day. The skull of Megistotherium alone measured up to sixty-six centimetres long, almost as long as the average person’s arm and hand. It is likely that Megistotherium also scavenged carcasses, though in what ratio Megistotherium hunted and scavenged is unknown. In Africa today animals associated with hunting such as lions will scavenge when they can, while animals associated with scavenging such as hyena will also hunt. The bones of mastodons have been found with Megistotherium-like tooth marks upon them, suggesting that Megistotherium at least fed upon them.
There has been speculation however that Megistotherium may be a synonym of Hyainailouros, a relative creodont also known to have attained large sizes, be similar and be active in some of the same locations at the same time as Megistotherium.

Megistotherium is a new cenozoic beast from the 2.3 update. Megistotherium has a reasonable set of stats for what she is. Nothing too low nor too high. Looking at her abilities, she seems a bit of a cenozoic chomper with the ability to go through armour and shields, and boosting that damage nicely. Most opponents cannot escape either which helps her bring them down. I quite like Megistotherium at first glance but it will take seeing her action to say yay or nay.
It is tough to say whether or not Megistotherium will be good for Raids. She has no team abilities and she needs to swap in to get that ferocity. I think she will be far better in the Arena and in tournaments.
