Hybrid Fight Night is where two hybrids from Ludia games are pitted against each other every week. They will be analyzed on their Speed, Defense, Attack, and Intelligence. They will then fight to determine the winner for the week. Now let’s get into this weeks battle! Giganocephalus VS Ankylodicurus!
Giganocephalus is very heavy and robust herbivore that is unlikely to perform any great feats of speed or agility. However, it is capable of performing a steady trot for a fair distance if the situation requires it. Giganocephalus is also very adept at turning its body quickly to keep its dangerous tail between itself and its opponent. Giganocephalus can also take fast small steps to moves itself around quickly in a small vicinity. These steps are mostly to position itself for attack but can be used to avoid the attacks as well. Ankylodicurus has a extreme focus on defense but not so much on speed. The short legs of this creature limit it to a lumbering trot at best. This hybrid does have impeccable stamina and can go long distances without tiring. It is also comfortable in a variety of environments from deserts to wetlands. Both of these herbivores prefer to bunker down beneath their heavy armor when threatened but Giganocephalus has longer legs that give it greater extension in its stride and superior mobility when changing directions. Giganocephalus takes the edge in speed and agility.
These two are both very dense and bulky herbivores. Giganocephalus is especially large at 30-34 feet in length, 7 feet in height, and 6-8 tons in weight. This large hybrid is protected by large overlapping plates and dense armor that covers its head, neck, back, and tail. Spikes also protrude around the neck and shoulders of Giganocephalus. This ankylosaur has a very low and wide build that gives it excellent stability to keep itself from being flipped which would expose its one defensive weakness, its unprotected underbelly. Ankylodicurus is smaller but also incredibly dense. This creature can grow to 17 feet long, 5 feet tall, and 2 to 3 tons in weight. Ankylodicurus is incredibly tough with a thick and spiky armored shell covering its entire body. Unlike ankylosaur armor, this shell covers the hybrids flank and comes over its neck which leaves only its feet exposed. Its armor also covers its head and tail. Ankylodicurus is also very wide and low giving it great stability in battle. Like Giganocephalus, it’s biggest weakness is its underbelly but this is extremely difficult to exploit even for larger opponents. Between the two, Ankylodicurus is better protected by its armor but the shear size of Giganocephalus is enough to make this category a draw.
When looking at Giganocephalus, it’s weapon of choice is quite apparent. This hybrid has a extremely thick, long and muscular tail that has spikes running along each side and are the largest on the tails end. The plating of this hybrid thickens at the end to form a dense club. A swing of this tail can do immense damage especially in vulnerable areas. With one good swing, bones can be broken, organs damaged, and tissues shredded. The length of this tail also gives this creature great range. Even large predators would be wary around this hybrid. Giganocephalus could also possess the ability to bite although it is unlikely to be very strong due to the small size of its head and its strict herbivore diet. Ankylodicurus is armed with a club of its own. The tough armor of its body forms a mace-like weapon on the end of this hybrid tail. This weapon can be swung at high speeds with decent range and flexibility. This weapon swings low likely to strike the legs of its foes. If the blow connects, a predator could be fatally crippled with a severe fracture. Ankylodicurus might also be able to give a painful bite but it is probably not its main weapon of choice and it probably can’t do considerable damage. While having similar arsenals, the better range and strength behind the club of Giganocephalus gives it the attacking edge.
These two are made with Ankylosaur DNA so it is understandable that neither has very high intelligence. Giganotosaurus doesn’t help Giganocephalus much in this category as it was probably very instinct driven and didn’t have high enough intelligence to compensate for the ankylosaur half. Giganocephalus had its weapons and it knew how to use them but it wasn’t likely to perform quick thinking or strategizing. In the same boat, is Ankylodicurus. Ophiacodon and Doedicurus don’t bring enough to the table to pick up the low ankylosaur aspects. Like Giganocephalus, this is a instinctual creature that didn’t need complex thinking to defend itself. With intelligence likely being below average for both of these creatures, it is unlikely to be significant in this fight leaving this category at a draw.
I would like to thank @Albertoplays111 for suggesting this weeks opponents! The simulation is set! Let’s find out this weeks winner!
Sun beams through between the towering trees of the densely vegetated woodland. Water drips from the plants and the ground is soft after a recent rain. Among the creatures enjoying the lush vegetation is Giganocephalus. The lumbering giant moves slowly through the greenery chomping down the large plants in its way. The large herbivore eventually enters a small clearing and stops. In the center of the clearing sits Ankylodicurus feeding on a small shrub. Giganocephalus growls just wanting the mammalian hybrid out of its way. Ankylodicurus grunts back and smacks its clubbed tail against the ground and continues eating. Giganocephalus roars but Ankylodicurus pays little attention and continues eating. Frustrated, Giganocephalus approaches the smaller hybrid, lowers its head, and begins to push Ankylodicurus out of its path. Not happy about being displaced, Ankylodicurus squeals, whips its tail back, and whips its mace like tail against the front leg of Giganocephalus.
Giganocephalus bellows in pain and shuffles back. The large ankylosaur curls its tail back and slams it hard again the side of Ankylodicurus’ shell. Ankylodicurus flies backwards and rolls twice across the ground before skidding to a stop on its feet a short distance away. Ankylodicurus grunts and looks back at its opponent but Giganocephalus has already closed in. The ankylosaur spins around and smacks Ankylodicurus again. Ankylodicurus keeps its footing but is knocked backwards against a tree with a hard thud. Giganocephalus roars and approaches its new foe as quick as its body would allow. Ankylodicurus sees its opponents approach and drops to the ground to cover its legs. The mammalian hybrid pulls its head in as much as it can. Giganocephalus takes its first swing, the strike hits hard against the side of Ankylodicurus and rattles through the hybrids body but only scratches the armor of its durable shell. Ankylodicurus grunts but stays hunkered down as Giganocephalus brings its tail back for another wallop.
The powerful blow connects on Ankylodicurus’ side again but once more only scratches the tough armor. Giganocephalus strikes again with same result. Anger burns within the ankylosaur who pounds blow after blow against Ankylodicurus. The tree that the mammalian hybrid is pinned against rattles with each attack causing birds to noisily flee. Giganocephalus recoils its tail and delivers a exceptionally powerful hit. The attack scapes across the armor of Ankylodicurus so hard that one of the ankylosaurs tail spikes breaks off. Giganocephalus stops and stands panting while staring at its foe who rises and stares back. Ankylodicurus takes a few steps forward and shakes its head. Giganocephalus roars angrily and walks up to its opponent. Ankylodicurus lashes its tail as a warning to its foe to stay back. The warning doesn’t get across. Giganocephalus tries to go in for a bite but a swing from Ankylodicurus’ tail is enough to get the hulking ankylosaur to take a step back. Ankylodicurus shuffles towards its opponent and takes another swing for the dinosaurs head.
Giganocephalus backs away again but moves in as Ankylodicurus recoils and grabs the mammalian hybrid by the head. Ankylodicurus cries out in surprise and pulls back. The tough armor of the mammal prevents Giganocephalus from getting a good grip and Ankylodicurus slips free, whips around, and bashes Giganocephalus in the side of the head with its mace-like tail. A couple teeth and drops of blood fly from the dinosaurs mouth. Giganocephalus bellows in pain, stumbles back and collapses on its side. Blood covers the side of the ankylosaurs head and drips down its chin. Ankylodicurus stares at its opponent and smacks its clubbed tail against the ground with a threatening growl. Giganocephalus slowly gets up with a massive headache. The dinosaur shakes its head trying to clear the pounding agony in its skull. Giganocephalus tries to take a step forward but stumbles. Ankylodicurus moves in and lashes its clubbed tail back and connects it with the front leg of Giganocephalus. The dinosaur cries out in pain and shuffles back. Ankylodicurus growls angrily at its larger opponent trying to get it to go away.
Giganocephalus shakes its head and the pain clears enough for the dinosaur to get its senses back. Ankylodicurus growls again but this time Giganocephalus responds with a thunderous roar. Ankylodicurus squares up and lashes its tail. Giganocephalus lowers its head and runs right at the mammalian hybrid. Ankylodicurus swings its tail right as Giganocephalus slams into him like a truck. The impact causes the mammal to swing higher than intended and only hits the dinosaurs armored side as it is thrown over and lands on armored back. Ankylodicurus thrashes in a panic trying to turn itself upright as its foe approaches. Giganocephalus raises its tail over the helpless mammal and slams it down on the struggling creature, crushing it into its own shell with a sickening wet crunch. Ankylodicurus squeaks and groans weakly before going limp with blood trickling from its mouth. Giganocephalus pulls its tail out of its foes bloody body with a loud squelch. The tired Giganocephalus turns and lumbers away knowing that the commotion of the fight and the smell of blood has likely already alerted hungry predators.
In this fight Giganocephalus exceeded Ankylodicurus in almost every way however, Ankylodicurus still proved to be a tough nut to crack. The armor of Ankylodicurus is ridiculously durable which allowed it to take hits that larger creatures would not be able to handle. Its high density and low build also made it difficult to flip despite its much smaller size. Unfortunately, Ankylodicurus was not well equipped to take on such a large opponent with the weapons at its disposal. Its clubbed tail could do severe damage but Giganocephalus could tank those hits due to its large size. Giganocephalus also had a huge range advantage with its longer tail that also packed more muscle and power into its attack. Giganocephalus struggled to find a weakness in its opponents impeccable defense but without any way to deliver substantial damage to its foe, Ankylodicurus was left to endure attack after attack. On the other hand, Giganocephalus could take all the time it needed to strike its foes weakness due to its large bulk. Ankylodicurus may have had a strong defense to stay in the fight but Giganocephalus had the size and power to end it. The winner is Giganocephalus!
