This thread reminded me of this story of a jogger drowning a rabid raccoon that attacked her:

One out of ten tries? And I learn from the previous attempts? One adult elephant.

A feel like a lion would be able to twist and turn 180 in your grip 100% of the time. I also feel like you'd have a hard time getting full leverage around its neck and mane to get it to pass out before you tire out.

Pretty sure I've got less than a 10% chance of surviving a cougar attack even if I have a gun.

Any critter that is hard to damage and can bleed me out (even if it can't straight up maim me) is gonna be a problem. Ten attempts is nice, but I don't learn physical skills fast.

I could prob'ly take a coyote.

How do you even fight an elephant?

Exhaust it to death. I mean, I have a lot of time, right? I imagine their turn radius isn't that great, and if they're actively trying to kill me it shouldn't be too hard to keep them running. I bet it would dehydrate and die way sooner than I would.

As far as I know no grizzly bear has ever been trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I am trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Knowing this I could easily kill a grizzly bear in two or three motions.

The most interesting part of this question is that it shows which people are 100% disconnected from reality.  ;D ;D

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

Well you have to be skirting the line, otherwise it wouldn't be the most dangerous. This is a fun question.

Hey but for real I was joking about an African lion. I liked my platoon's responses, though. Some are tenable.

But for real I know BJJ, which is a super power.

Lol. I do love this question.

So far in this thread we've had someone call out the largest living land animal and the second biggest land carnivore.

According to a CPW release, the body of an 80-pound juvenile mountain lion was located on the West Ridge Trail. “The runner did everything he could to save his life.

I am unable to find any cases of an adult human male (or female) Actually beating an adult healthy mountain lion bare handed. Many cases of escape. Otherwise the mountain lion is like  500-1-70.

So, mountain lion would be a good pick IMO, well inside the 10% chance.

RGS, Ballsy idea, not one I would risk. Largest land animal, Stupid fast and one of the smartest with problem solving abilities?

Do you kill your sparring partners once they are useless to you, so that you are king?

Elephants are only fast in bursts and straight lines. And they have slow startup speed. It could probably swing its head and trunk fast though, so you would need to be out of reach. It could probably run me down if I just tried sprinting away in a straight line. I bet after I avoided the first two or three charges I could then safely just start jogging away.

Here is the real issue though, im horribly out of shape when it comes to endurance running. Someone else would have a much better shot.
