How to Deal with Rexy
Hello fellow DPG members !
Rexy. When we first think of her, we think of the iconic Tyrannosaurus in the Jurassic Park 1 / all the Jurassic World movies. The one who saved the gang from aggressive Velociraptors in the rotunda, and Owen and Claire from a Carnotaurus. The one who teamed up with Therizinosaurus and Blue to defeat Giganotosaurus and Indominus Rex. The one who broke into a zoo, stormed a drive way theatre in California, and the one Alan Grant got “clocked” over when Hammond said “Well we clocked the T-Rex at 32 miles per hour.” That Tyrannosaurus who will have a special place in many of our hearts.
In Alive however, Rexy’s status goes otherwise. Ever since stepping foot into the game on May 25th, she’s been crowned as one of the most OP creatures in game. And also the one many have strongly been against and want nerfed because its too overpowered. However there are many also who disagree with a nerf for it and want it to remain the same. There have been some rumors of a nerf incoming, but we do not know for sure. In this article, I am going to explore what creatures in the current common - epic meta can take here down . So, lets get into it ! Make sure to also stay tuned for a Part 2 available soon !

Not many creatures can take Rexy down. She can practically destroy full blown Apexes if given the chance, and even Cunnings don’t stand much chance against its Dominant Roar ability. There are very few creatures below Legendary that can take this beast down. So here’s the list of creatures that can take here down below Legendary, starting from:
Megalotops must know how it feels to be one of the most overpowered creatures in game because it is also OP in itself. Its probably famous for “spamming dodge and distraction” in reference to its Camouflage which has no cooldown or delay. However, this annoying ability actually makes its one of the best counters to Rexy in the game.
As Rexy’s Dominant Roar increases its speed to an insane 132 from 106 base speed, it makes it all the more impossible for creatures without a priority move to take it down. Megalotops can do just that and increase its speed to a 140 from a 108 speed with Camouflage on the first turn. Afterwards, it can go for its Cautious Rampage which gives it additional dodge, speed and deals huge amount of damage. As Rexy’s weakness is reduced damage and going through dodge, it doesn’t take long for them to be exploited. If she goes for a Fierce Devouring Rampage, Megalotops just counters it and can destroy her with either Determined Strike or Distracting Impact on the next turn.
One of the parents of the making of Megalotops, Megalonyx can surprisingly take her down even though he’s just a ordinary rare. It applies almost the same strat as Megalotops: Camouflage, Cautious Rampage, and its Cunning Strike. However, it would be best to boost its HP by either 1 or 2 as if Rexy crits, then Megalonyx can lose to her.
- Indominus Rex Gen 2
This epic can take Rexy down with not too many problems as Rexy hates dodge. Its Cloak move would be the first thing to go for, and then its Armor Piercing Rampage ( cloak gives 2x damage on next attack. )
Surprisingly, this fragile epic can take her down, however, it cannot take her down without boosts. To have a more guaranteed chance of defeating a Rexy, a Proceratho must have a minimum of 3 or 4 HP boosts and 3 attack boosts. Its Nullifying Counter is great for countering Rex’s Dominant Roar move. First, use its Instant Distraction to soften the blow on the HP, then Cunning Rampage and Cunning Strike. However this creature is not really recommended for use as it isn’t a viable counter without the boosts.
Overall, the best counters of the four are Megalotops, Megalonyx , and Indominus Rex Gen 2 with a 90% - 99.9% win rate of the time. As Rexy is more vulnerable to reduced damage and dodge, these three have one or more of these abilities and can win against her quite easily than I would like to admit.
