Ok… I made these unscheduled. Hopefully eventually I get back on track, but for now, welcome back to JWA Battles, we play the game by determining the sizes, speed, and power of JWA’s hybrids. Eventually, I’ll be lazy with this part.
Last time, in a rather even battle, Grypolyth drowned and crushed Sarcorixis in an entirely different type of battle.
This time, we have the superhybrid rematch of the originally one sided battle of Gorgosuchus VS Postimetrodon, Megalosuchus, the superhybrid who for some reason loses to its previous state, and Tryostronix, everyone’s Ex-Favorite self-buffing speedy chomper. Without further ado, besides this sentence, let’s get this battle started!
Height: 7 Ft
Length: 19 Ft
Weight: 2 Tons
Bite Force: 3 Tons (Mostly from its Tyrannosaurid Anchestry)
Speed: 15 MPH
Weapons: Teeth, Claws, Pouncing
Advantages: Stronger bite, more durable, technically the better fighter.
Disadvantages: Not as good at defense disabling, slower, physically weaker.
Megalosuchus is a hybrid of the famous from JWA and JWTG Gorgosuchus and the Megalosaurus, so I wonder how powerful this thing would be in JWTG anyway? In its description, compared to the panther Gorgosuchus, it is compared to a Siberian Tiger in razor wire, yet loses to its hybrid some some odd reason. But I’m more than sure IRL, megalosuchus would win. Its bite force is just as powerful, but it gains even more weight and durability at the sacrifice of speed. Its claws and teeth piled onto something fast in its own right makes for a deadly foe. However, it isn’t the fastest of creatures its size and not the brightest either, just midway there. Overall, megalosuchus is very powerful, but not one of the smartest or fastest of creatures its size.
Height: 9 Ft
Length: 23 Ft
Weight: 1 Ton
Bite Force: 1,000 Pounds
Weapons: Teeth, Claws, Surprisingly Good At Defense Disabling (According to In-Game Description)
Advantages: Faster, physically stronger, good defense disabler.
Disadvantages: Weaker bite force, slightly lighter and less durable, not able to jump.
Tryostronix is a hybrid of the last epic you wanted to see pre-2.0, Baryonyx, and Postimetrodon. It is very fast, but only average for strength. Being a small-sized spinosaurid, this means it doesn’t fight well on land but excels in water, and is quite possibly smart enough to lead its opponents into water whenever the chance is granted. On land, it is quite fast for its size, and is on the middle end of power. However, most other creatures its size outclass it on land, despite being called an expert at disabling defenses… Overall, Tryostronix may be strong in its own right, but it is outclassed in fighting experience by most creatures its size.
Megalosuchus stalks the forest looking for a new prey item. The camera then cuts to Tryostronix killing off a young Dunkleosaurus and returning to land. It brings out the carcass, ready to eat, but Megalo roars, letting Tryo know he wants a piece. Tryo roars back, not wanting to share. Megalo decides if that’s the way its gonna be, he’ll have to take the food. He leaps at Tryo, in an attempt to swpe the spinosaur, who ducks and his opponent lands into a tree. Megalo gets back up, and leaps back at its foe. Tryo this time swipes Megalo, and counters in the exact style as in-game. Tryo, taking a lot of damage, jumps into the water. Megalo looks down and assumes it is safe, and proceeds to try to take a bite. Right on cue, Tryo leaps out and swipes Megalo, who leaps at its opponent again, who dodges yet again. Tryo then grabs and crushes Megalo’s back, breaking his spine. Megalo breaks free and bites Tryo’s leg, crushing and breaking it. With both creatures Immobilized, They both rush at each other for a final slash. Megalo coughs blood while Tryo breathes with a bloodied chest. Megalo didn’t even take time to look when Tryo grabbed him again, this time in half. Tryo, with the battle finally over, decides to enjoy his meal, only to find it had rottened, killing his appetite.
At last, Tryo gets revenge for its father. And this battle was definitely closer than the hybrid battle. But let’s get into detail. Megalosuchus and Tryostronix are pretty evenly matched, unlike their parents where that is completely one sided in Gorgo’s favor. However, Tryo wins thanks to its speed and PHYSICAL strength. Megalo may have the advantage in bite force, but its pounce isn’t a raptor’s and would miss more times than not, and the times it does land wouldn’t be enough to take out Tryo. You might think, shouldn’t Tryo lose due to an inferior bite force and Tyrannosaur>Spinosaur. To you I say, this isn’t a typical version of that debate. If megalo took on its tyrannosaur and theropod’s parent’s appearance, yes. You could argue that a couple bites would be enough to finish Tryo, but Megalo couldn’t get in “a couple bites” for many reasons. One, it was physically weaker. Two, it was slower. Three, it wasn’t durable enough to even pull that off. You see, while Megalosuchus does indeed have its fair chance, it doesn’t quite stack up to the speed and strength of Tryostronix, making the winner, well, Tryostronix.
