Gorillas had a bad reputation, mainly due to the King Kong image, but they are said to be peace loving by nature, but if you look at the chimpanzees, they are quite ferocious and is said to kill each other in the fit of rage. You will find chimpanzees tearing apart monkeys or the antelopes during their hunt down, but you will rarely see that with the gorillas.

Grizzly bears as well as the gorillas are considered to be the most ferocious of all, but it seems exaggerated to some extent. You will find Gorillas in Africa, whereas the grizzly bears habitat is found in North America. Therefore, a duel between the two is a far off call, unless one travels all the way to fight against the other.

Their living conditions are also different from each other. You will find the gorillas residing at the tropical rainforest mainly, but then there are some whom you will find in the bamboo forest. Now in comparison, grizzly bears prefer more open places like the alpine meadows as well as tundra. You will also find them along the coastlines.

From here, you can conclude one thing and that is grizzly bear will not be comfortable staying in the habitat of Gorillas and vice versa. Gorilla tries to avoid fights and he does that by displaying various threats before they finally get into the fight. Gorilla is said to attack only when they see the aggressor is running away, but if the aggressor stay put, then they will back up. The bear won’t be able to stand the hooting and chest beating.

Grizzly Bear vs Gorilla Comparison

AnimalsWestern GorillaGrizzly Bear
Average Length6.5 ft
Average HeightHeight of 6 ft102 cm
AreaCentral AfricaAsia, North America, Canada and Europe
OrderPrimatesCarnivora, Omnivora
HabitatTropical or subtropical forests in AfricaIn Alaska dense near the coast, continental United States

Average Life Span35 – 40 years22 for females and 26 for males

Gorilla is considered to be vegetarian and you will hardly find them on the animal matter. The bear for that matter is genuinely ferocious in nature with powerful canine teeth and they will bite down the prey and kill it. On the other hand, gorillas are herbivorous. So, if they ever come up against each other, then bear will have an upper hand.

Though both of them have very powerful and strong upper limbs, but if you want to pin point the strengths, then you will see that the bears have claws whereas, gorillas have nails. Gorillas are far more intelligent than the bear and they also use facial expressions far more than bears. In fact, you won’t be able to gauge what the bear is thinking from their facial expression mainly because they lack it hugely in that department.

Gorillas are quite fast and they have that in their stride. Even the weight of both of them is around 500 pounds, but one thing is for sure that Gorilla has the ability to lift a minimum of 4 tons. On the other hand, a grizzly bear has the potential to kill a moose weighing one ton with elan and that too because of the fact that it has claws to take down its prey.

The grizzly bear can be more than 8 ft. tall if they stand erect and have an impressive sprinting pace whereas the gorillas are around 6 ft. tall. The arm span of the gorillas is almost 8ft. The gorillas work equally actively on the ground as well as the trees and are a fair fighter too. The gorillas us their hands to break the bamboos and holds a strength which can be easily compared to that of steel and that is why you will see them breaking as much as 5 inch bamboo like a simple twig without putting in much effort.

If the two breaks into a fight, then the gorillas have the ability to pull apart the jaws of the bear like thread.

    The data fields require correction, gorillas do not have “32 canine teeth”..

    I would suggest that the gorilla does possess the potential to defeat the bear in combat,
    but would have to be properly prepared & trained in specific skills – by human intervention – to do so..

    There are historical accounts of human trained primates doing well in fights pitted against game dogs,
    so that with careful combat training a gorilla could learn to master his positive natural attributes,
    & negate both his disadvantages, & exploit the bears weaknesses.. by using all means, fair & foul..

    This could make a great reality TV project for say, Mike Tyson – to develop, huh..
    He’d train up a bad-as beasty gorilla to take out a dumpster-diving downtown brown bruin- in a mega MMA deal..

  2. Michael

    True gorillas have amazing strength. However leapords often kill them so I’m thinking since leapords have no chance against a Grizzly, then yeah grizz is just more powerful with huge claw swipes. Grizzly for the win

    1. me

      I have to disagree. I’m 100% sure that leopards prey on small or infant gorillas. But against a full grown gorilla that leopard wouldn’t stand a chance

    2. me

      Also leopards will almost always avoid Silverback gorillas. Unless they find a nest with infants they’ll stay the hell away. The only gorillas that leopards kill are smaller mountain gorillas, and infants of all species of gorilla. The mountain gorilla is a smaller species of gorilla by the way

  3. James W.

    Do your research Mikey,
    since the – leopard sized – Mountain lion is def’ on record as
    defeating grizzly bears in combat, the leopard surely
    could too..

    I doubt that leopards “often kill” a big silverback though..

    A prime pride-boss male lion would handily defeat any of them, of course..

    1. Undoomed

      OH MY GOD JAMES YOU AND YOUR LIONS. Let me ask you; what land predator could beat a lion to you?

    2. Tristin

      Grizzle is a big win against a gorilla. Grizzles have 5 inch claws and skull crushing teeth. Gorilla is no mach for a grizzle.

  4. James W.

    “Troll” ?
    That beasty couldn’t even beat a Billy goat..
    But you of course, fit the ‘bill’ for ‘troll’, though eh, undeaded..

    1. Undoomed

      “Deaded”. Yep. Totally makes sense. However, the reason I’m starting to think you’re a troll is because you still have not answered what mammalian land predator could beat the male lion. Also, what ‘beasty’ couldn’t beat a billy goat?

  5. James W.

    U – only need to look in a mirror,
    & you’ll see a troll.. thats you, beasty..

    The lion has been known as ‘King of the Beasts’ since Roman times at least..
    & the Romans would know, since they learned their habits, up real close.

    1. Undoomed

      At least I can form a coherent sentence. Either way, just because ancient Romans called the lion “the King of beasts” doesn’t really mean anything. Plenty of animals could CRUSH lions in a fight, and have. A Cape buffalo would crush a male lion in a fight, as well as white rhinos, elephants, hippos, etc. That’s only in the lions native habitat! I have a quick question for you; do you think a polar bear could beat a male lion? If you say no, I will be utterly convinced you are a troll. Please stop using “…” Please.

  6. James W.

    Underthings, it is you..
    ..who appears as quite self-evidently being – the ‘Troll’ , here..

    Of course a polar bear loses.. it hides up in the frozen north, except to raid garbage..
    ( it can’t beat a boss lion anyhow – as shown in circus/zoo confrontations)
    & they certainly could not compete in a lion habitat..

    Lions habitually prey on “”…rhinos, elephants, hippos etc.”
    How do you not know this, or is is it just more “troll” stuff?
    Give the stupidities a rest, can ya fella, huh..

    1. Undoomed

      Male lions do not regularly prey on any of those things, at all. It is nearly unheard of for lions to kill rhinos or elephants, and hippos dry up on land. Polar bears rarely raid trash cans, as they most often are not in areas to be able to raid trash cans. They hunt very large and dangerous prey, like walrus. Why don’t you give up the stupidities that the male lion is the most powerful creature on earth. It isn’t. They do not regularly kill any of those things, especially male lions, Jamesy boy.

      1. joshua

        i like a bears more but the lion fights to the death and a bears runs away when they know the target is to hard and even though bears are strong, there is no way in hell a bear can take down a lion or a gorilla easly, even though there stronger but they hunt to eat and lions hunt to eat and show there there dominit. and dont even talk about poler bares we all know a poler bare could easly take down a smaller cat. but a gorilla lion could take down any type of bear, a gorilla and a lion is the strongest.

      2. Patrick Clarke)

        You are mistaken about the diet of the Polar Bear, James. Although you are correct about a full grown polar bear besting a full grown lion.

        -> Polar bears DONT regularly hunt walrus, they do that because food options are scarce in the summer months. In fact I recall seeing a desperate polar bear being killed by a walrus recently; on the brink of starvation the bear attempted to kill one and was gored.

        just like the trash-can the polar bear would rather hunt seal.

    2. Undoomed

      I’d also like to see how long a lion would survive in a polar bears habitat. Oh wait, it wouldn’t because it would freeze to death and couldn’t catch any prey. Also, you put quotation marks in the wrong place and forget a question mark. Circus and zoo confrontations aren’t reliable, as the health of the animal is always in question. Besides, by your logic Bengal tigers would wreck lions, because in a zoo confrontation in Turkey a Bengal tiger destroyed a male lion in a fight.

      1. AP

        Please read on tigers before you disrespect… I don’t want to explain but a Tiger would destroy a lion any day … Bigger faster stronger and solo hunters …

        1. James W.

          Wrong, apey..
          Boss lion is ‘King’ cat..

          Fact checking – will educate you,
          & you’ll revise your ideas accordingly.

          That is.. if you are actually prepared – to accept facts..

          1. marvel2007210

            hey James. The lion Is definitely not the strongest beast. Seriously did you know a gorilla can crush the skull of a leopard easily, and although lions would probably beat leopards in a fight, lions usually go for the neck and gorillas barley even have necks. And also their necks are very protected and the gorilla would probably just jump onto the lion putting its weight on it and pound the lion to death with their powerful arms. And don’t even get me started with tigers. They would absoloutly destroy even a male lion. They have bigger teeth. They are stronger, and more muscular, and they are smarter. And polar bears are one of the biggest bears in the world and bears don’t run when they attack they charge for the enemy and polar bears teeth are powerful specialized for cutting and slashing through the thick blubber of seals so the flesh of a lion would obviously not be a problem so don’t think the lions are the kings there are many animals that can overthrow a lion so the lion is not the”king” it is just a lion that can be beaten by many creatures so do you’re research and if you actually knew anything about animals you would respect all of them equally and not say that the lion is the best and strongest and fastest so hope you get yourself straight with your lion problem and not respecting any animals because any of those animals could destroy you anytime if they wanted to.

        2. AP

          Yo AP,
          Quit stealing my name. And James W, have you seen my post on “African Lion vs NIle Crocodile” and “African Lion vs Hyenas?” Check them out please.

  7. James W.

    Underdone.. too funny,
    So polar bears wander about the icy wastes picking up seals..
    like over-sized fat furry twinkies.. big deal..

    Lions in Africa that live by the beach catch seals too..
    Lions prefer to live where they do by choice, unlike the bear,
    relegated to the wastelands, or the nearest convenient dumpster..

    & you are so stupidly wrong in your – no evidence, no research – trolling..
    See here, male lions.. taking buffalo, hippo, elephant, duh.. its what they do..

    1. Undoomed

      1st: Lions catching seals is BS, it never happens

      2nd: Most polar bears do not live near dumpsters, and I’d like to see a male lion catch a seal where the polar bear loves

      3rd: That elephant was tiny, I said that a male lion couldn’t kill a fully grown lion. It takes a good sized and healthy pride of lions to kill a female adult elephant, let alone a male.

      4th: I already said that hippos dry up easily on land, and that is the only opportunity the lions have to kill them. I’d like to see a male lion, or any lion kill a hippo in the water, even shallow water.

      5th: I know lions kill buffalo; once again, this is about a male lion. I’d like to see a male lion kill a male Cape buffalo, by itself.

      6th: I don’t even comprehend your reasoning, Alfred

      1. James W.

        Underdunger don’t comprehend much..

        Like a typical troll.. just change your story, ignore facts & make stuff up..

        The lion in the vid you posted was far from prime condition,
        yet the buffalo it attacked, still died too.. or did you miss that..

        Look up lions of Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, they take seals off the beach..
        ..try to learn something real, can you eh, Underbrained..

        I’d like to see how a polar bear goes hunting any African mega-fauna.. chance, since they get stabbed to death by ungainly walrus tusks..

        1. Undoomed

          Lions have been known to avoid and sometimes be killed by honey badgers.

          How will he kill the bear and eat it when the bear has already thrown the lion to the moon? Polar bears can drag beluga whales out of the water, and battles between polar bears are intense. Their claws are hooked, and their flesh is thick. They can run up to 30 mph for moderate times. Their claws are larger than the lions, as well as their bite force. Their canine teeth are around the same size. Their fur is 1-2 inches thick, and that is just the outer coat. This is thicker than the length of the claws of a lion, which is 1 1/2 inches (on a large male). I see no way why the lion would win. In the animal kingdom, animals have respect for larger animals, especially predators. The polar bear is by far the most aggressive bear, and the least likely to back down. Male lions back down to larger male lions, so what reason would a male lion have to not back down to a behemoth, aggressive boar polar bear? Either way, if the male lion attacks the polar bear will rip it to shreds with it’s greater than 2 inch claws. You must not know anything about polar bears. They aren’t dumbster divers; they are expert hunters. They live 6 months in pitch blackness in the harshest place on earth, without hibernating, still hunting prey. Polar bears are some of the toughest creatures on earth, so I’d like to see a male lion try.

        2. Undoomed

          Why do you ignore the rest of what I said? Oh wait, because you’re an ignorant, moronic person who just cherry-picks parts of posts that you can attempt to disprove.

        3. Undoomed

          Africa has no mega-fauna. That’s simply ludicrous. Nothing in Africa is perfectly evolved, that’s why they’re changing.

          1. James W.

            More Undung..

            Lions find seals super-easy as prey..
            ..since even humans can simply club them to death..

            & FYI..
            Elephant/Hippo/rhino ARE mega-fauna.. “dumbsters” are not..
            & as for.. “cherry-picks” that is your game, troll-boy..
            ..such as the ‘lion cubs’ vid link..

          2. Undoomed

            How are polar bears dumpsters? Let alone dumpster divers. Polar bears should be considered mega-fauna, as they live in one of the harshest places on earth, hunt hard to catch prey, and are the largest land predator. What lion cub link? I posted no lion cub link, as in neither of the videos was there a lion cub. The polar bear has every advantage against a male lion. They live harder lived, as not only do they have to hunt prey and battle rivals, they also have to survive in a harsher environment, and they also can’t sleep 18-20 hours a day. *Cough* male lion *cough*. I don’t understand your bias towards the lion. Also, people may club seals to death, but people spear and club lions to death as well. Once again, lions mainly hunt the villagers live stock on the skeleton coast.

            Also, seals where the polar bear lives are nearly impossible to catch, as they are very wary, and usually come up for split seconds to breath.

          3. Undoomed

            Besides, polar bears also hunt beluga whales, which weigh as much as hippos.

          4. James W.

            Links to polar bear/lion interactions have been posted.
            Polar bears mostly lose, since they have must less fighting
            capacity than lions, including only 1/2 the bite strength,
            & overheat rapidly.

            Note: this is the gorilla vs grizzly thread, too..

          5. Undoomed

            I am aware this is the gorilla vs grizzly thread. I brought this up because you have this…delusion in your mind that the lion is some unbeatable super-predator. I’m just trying to prove that other predators can beat it, which I have. You just refuse to accept that.

          6. Undoomed

            Also, you stated that polar bears have half the bite force of a lion. It is actually quite the opposite; lions have 600 PSI and polar bears have 1200 PSI.

            Lions bite force:

            Polar bear bite force:

            You also stated that polar bears overheat rapidly, which I don’t deny. However, lions freeze quickly due to their short and coarse hair. Neither of them could survive in each other’s habitats, simply due to the climate differences.

          7. James W.

            Unreliable asks,
            “what links?”

            Check the link to the University site put up by ‘Monarch’..
   lion vs bear, here..
            Therein is a historical literature review of such encounters,
            & makes evident just why lions are truly – ‘King of the Beasts’..

            But no doubt, you’ll attempt to do a troll-type gainsay, sans validity..

          8. Undoomed

            Health is unreliable in those encounters, and those were grizzly bears, not polar bears. I have proven time and time again that the polar bear would beat a lion. They have 1250 PSI, lions have 600 PSI. Polar bears have longer claws, fur thicker than how long the lions claws are, and are much bigger. Polar bears are also much more muscular than other bears. Polar bears have no natural enemies, and don’t have a natural fear of humans. Also, lions are the king of beasts? Really? I could think of plenty of animals that could kill a lion. Like, for example, the killer whale, the black mamba, the honey badger, and, oh yeah, the POLAR BEAR. You stated that a polar bear would lose to a killer whale. Well, I’d like to see a lion take on a killer whale. James, you’re just a preposterous, ridiculous, asinine fool who claims to have evidence and that mine is false, when all you do is prove to me that you aren’t worth my time. If you respond to this, I probably won’t respond because your response will probably be too moronic for me to understand.

          9. Undoomed

            Ok, that was so incredibly stupid that I have to respond. Once again you avoid responding to the things that you know are true, like how a killer whale would destroy a lion. Polar bears are not refugees, and they do hunt.

            I don’t deny that lions are hunters, but you claiming polar bears aren’t is ridiculous. Also, you call me a fanboy? Really!? You are so biased towards the lion it’s unbelievable. I have not seen a single animal you claim the lion couldn’t beat. Also, what a MAROON? Like, the color? James, you’re one of the most biased and stupid people I’ve ever met.

        4. Undoomed

          Also, no. Lions live on the desert of skeleton coast, but very rarely kill seals there. They most often prey on the livestock of the villagers that live there, like cattle and donkeys.

          1. James W.

            unscientific, & unable to fact check/accept reality.
            Lions are late evolved primary obligate carnivores, &
            polar bears are refugees that prefer to eat garbage rather than hunt.

            Too hung up on fanboy favouritism to comprehend the basic anatomy.
            & simply put, a wilfully uninformed troll, thankfully only fooling itself.
            As Bugs Bunny would say, “What a maroon!”

          3. Undoomed

            Also, you don’t understand basic anatomy. You have all of these grandiose claims about lions, when polar bears spar with each other, have double the bite force, thick fur and strong bones, and their claws are more than 2 inches long. You are the one who doesn’t understand simple anatomy.

          4. James W.

            imagines his fantasies are facts..
            “Slippery seals”? leopard seals, fur seals, even elephant seals,
            sure, but aint no such animal as “slippery seals”.. hilarious.

            Bears are, essentially, a cross between a pig & a dog, all of
            which love to raid garbage, & eat – & stink of it, just like Udo…

          5. Undoomed

            I WASN’T SAYING SLIPPERY SEALS ARE A SPECIES. I WAS SAYING THE EXPRESSION THAT SEALS ARE HARD TO CATCH. Just like lions, polar bears smell like rotting flesh. You think that lions smell nice? Polar bears hunt all of the food they get, or eat carcasses.

          1. James W.

            you cannot be serious..
            That is spurious & unscientific.. much like the rest of your stuff.
            Do actual valid data set fact checking, rather than utter troll nonsense.

            By polar bears iceholes are frequented.. to grab hapless marine mammals
            which have to come up to breathe.. hardly even a hunt..

            & yes, they are a pest, scavenging around garbage dumps in Canada’s north..

          2. Undoomed

            Not even close to being true. It is extremely hard to catch a seal where the polar bears live, and considering the deterioration of ice flows, the breathing holes are less common. Also, I love how the person who has posted no evidence is accusing me of having no evidence, where I have posted YouTube videos and articles proving you wrong. There are some polar bears in Canada, but live very high in the arctic circle, where there are very few people. What is also really funny that you call polar bears pests, where as lions are pests to the people where they live, as they prey on the people’s livestock and are then killed.
            Read the first part of the article

          5. Undoomed

            I love how you call my links jokes (which they aren’t) when you STILL haven’t provided any evidence yourself. How could a lion beat a polar bear? I have already stated my case, which is that the polar bear weighs more, has longer and hooked claws, lives in a harsher environment, and has a stronger bite force. Once again, you doubt the wariness and speed of a seal.

            Also, how is a beluga not formidable? Besides, polar bears drag them out of the water. They are much stronger than lions, as they are able to drag more than a ton out of the water. I also love how you keep purposely messing up my name as a joke to affect me, but it does nothing.

        5. Aka/Tony

          Like a lion wouldn’t get stabbed to death by a walrus. Oh, I forgot. Nothing can kill male lion, except another male lion. Because according to you, the male lion alone can beat a elephant, a rhino, a hippo, a grizzly bear, a polar bear, a buffalo, a tiger etc.

  8. Anonymous

    Oh this is Grizzly Bear vs Eastern Gorilla why bring lions, tigers, hippos and rhinos here?

    If you are asking who’s strongest, it’s the blue whale, by sheer power. A baby blue whale can weigh 2000 kg, for starters.
    If you’re asking land animal, it’s Elephant. Trunk alone has 100,000 muscles, need I say more? It isn’t just a bunch of fat, it’s really strong.

    As far as answering the question is concerned, a Grizzly Bear takes this.

    1. Orcacrusher333

      No for land it’s the anaconda that can squeeze 19 000 psi. Pythons, monitor lizards, and crocs beat elephant And saltwater crocodile is strongest overall

  9. Horuos

    A polar bear will win against a lion. No questions, head-on. Polar bears will back down Undoomed, but only after giving their all. Male lions fihht rivals, but will back down if there is a clear difference in power. Polar bears are also more aggressive, which means that when it really counts, they get a larger boost of adrenaline, which would make them more powerful. However, it is likely we will never know thr true outcome for they will meet unless either animal adapts to the others habitat.

    Hail Odin.

    1. joshua

      lions fight to kill not run away, they dont back down from what they started “sometimes”

  10. Horuos

    My god James youre one of the biggest trolls I’ve seen in a while. You know eho would win

    1. James W.


      I am neither god nor troll,
      & if you check the historical facts as noted,
      – you’ll see you are wrong.

  11. Derek

    In no way shape or form could a lion win against a grizzly,Or polar bear, Infact it would be nearly impossible for a lion to kill them for many factors, One a lion cannot get close enough to the bear without being mauled, Bears weigh nearly if not more then twice the lion male or female, And ontop lions have low stamina as most big cats do they run out of energy fast, while bears are known to have enormous amounts of stamina and could fight full strength for hours while the lion will basically become so exhausted it wont be able to move, No matter how it’s played s lion could never kill a grizzly bear or a polar bear they simply do not have enough stamina to do do and anything a lion did wont be effective enough to kill the bear due to its tough skin and layers of fat

    1. James W.

      Derek, your opinion, as posted
      – is of no value, to this thread

      If you bothered to do basic fact checking – you’d know this.

      Perhaps you are simply trolling, since if you had read the thread,
      you’d know this already.
      Check the links to the historical record, if you do want to learn something,
      & correct your erroneous beliefs, (which I doubt you want to, or will do).

      1. Undoomed

        Well James, I can see you’ve finally given up on responding to me. Either way, let me once again state that polar bears are much large than lions, have double the bite force, are much stronger than lions, and hunt all of their food, despite what you would suggest.

        1. James W.

          Uneducated, wrong again!
          As usual…

          Bear dentition/bite force is markedly inferior to that of the largest cat species..
          Bears are closer to pigs, & readily scavenge garbage in preference to hunting..

          1. Undoomed

            Damn, I thought I had gotten rid of you! Oh well, as usual, I will have to prove you wrong AGAIN. Could you please just do a simple Google search and see that a polar bear has around 1,200 PSI, while a lion has 600 PSI? Once again, bears are not AT ALL related to pigs, at least not closely, especially polar bears who are pure carnivores. Added to the fact that a vast majority of polar bears don’t even have access to dumpsters, that is ridiculous. Polar bears almost exclusively hunt their prey, as opposed to your ludicrous fantasies. I am sorry James, but it looks like you’re wrong again.

          2. James W.

            Uninformed, again..

            You are wrong about lion bite, check some real data..
            (& this is the gorilla thread, anyhow).

            Bears are closer to pigs in lifestyle/garbage grubbing,
            if less successful, due to slow breeding rates..

            Try & get ‘rid of ‘ your own ignorance/trolling propensity.

          3. Undoomed

            James, no. Oh my god, no. Would you PLEASE just look up lion and polar bear bite forces, and see that polar bears have around 1,200 PSI, while lions have around 600 PSI? All you have to do is a simple google search, that is all it will take. Bears are not closely related at all to pigs, and in fact, are more closely related to dogs than pigs.



            There you go, polar bears have stronger bites, ya wanker.

      1. James W.

        Not true,
        at all..
        & those lame-as sites linked must really attract bears,
        ’cause they are all garbage..

        In fact, the gorilla out-bites the bear, & would
        bite the fat-as grizzlies dumpster sniffing nose
        clean off, while choking it out in a head lock,
        jest like a bad-as nigga rappa- pimp, training his bitches..

        & if the dirty down-town brown got uppity, the G-beast
        would go upside the dumpster boy’s head – with de big bamboo..

        1. marvel2007210

          James you Are one very ignorant and rude person and you are right a gorilla would beat a bear but not by biting it the gorilla would simply beat it with shear strength but since bears are literally stronger than lions do you think a lion has a chance against a gorilla and bears are not even close to pigs the closest thing to a pig that is not a pig is you

  12. Newman

    You guys should really just stop acknowledging James. It is horrifically obvious he is a troll.

    1. James W.

      Alfred E,
      Do you ever provide a post of value?
      Or is lame trolling – all you can do?

      Bear fanboys are so unrealistic..
      & those dumpster-diving, fat-as fur-bags are so over-rated..

      A big ol’ gnarly ape with a filthy ‘tude would rip that stupid
      snuffling garbage grubbing nose – right off the brownies face..

  13. Paulo Veloso

    In nature size and strength really matter boys and talking 1 v 1 a grizz vs silverback would be compelling…What wouldn’t be as compelling is a lion bc even their big prey could fuck them up!!! It takes 3 or more lionesses to finish off a Cape Buffalo!!!

  14. Mitch

    A gorilla would win. As for cats killing them they fight in groups against a single gorilla. And… fy fucking I! You know those windows at the zoo? The 6 inch thick ones that house every type of animal that is dangerous and capable of killing humans in seconds? I said humans. Not human. Well.. you don’t see many grizzlies doing that. In fact the real challenge should be a western vs a polar bear. Polar bear would annihilate the gorilla. But let’s be real here. There is nothing stronger on land than the tiger, lion. However new breeding and hybrids show promise for new favored future species. The black cheetah.
    Just picture it. A hybrid cross of a black panther (the most agile and graceful of all cats, the true inspiration for ninjas and the silent night time active assassination…) and a cheetah (the fastest of all animals on land. Clicked at over 60 mph. Some even faster!!)
    Black Panther = Natures Jungle Ninja Power married with grace, agility, super senses, and instinct. Speed and agility help explain why the cheetah is one of the most successful hunters. They’re success rate on the other hand? Go figure .. the third best out of the world!!
    Now… just mix the two together and what do you get?
    Only the world’s most adaptive feline hunter that ever lived!
    Like assassin’s creed kitty! Climbing and jumping and running! It would be incredibly smart too! I bet it just could become the world’s most deadly cat!!

  15. michael

    i think james is right i mean sure a polar bear has massiv eclaws ectbut polar bears have long THIN skulls lions can easily break it…………

  16. Leonard Cardell

    Aint no damn gorrilla been born that can lift two tons,much less 8…lmfao

  17. tjm

    Spider Man would beat all the above with his awesome speed and strong webbing.
    You guys are hilarious

  18. Fuck James.

    Id imagine a lion is in better shape, seeing as how it sees itself as the top of its societal construct as to the the bears loner mindset, bears eat to survive, lions eat to protect, and i know males tend not to hunt to much with the rest of the pride unlike females but i do know that males when they do work with others are pretty fluid in their decision making and synergy with the others.

    Btw, you guys need to put a setting to these match ups, climate can affect how the 2 act, a gorilla in the north with snow would freeze in the face of a bear.

  19. Dockles

    Lmao… Lions aren’t that tough. Male “Pride Boss” Lions rarely have to fight, or Hunt, for that matter. Male Lions generally only fight for territory and breeding, rarely do they fight to the death against something that can hold its own. Hyenas, in groups of three, can typically scare off a male Lion. This has been documented, and is shown on youtube with a simple search. Male Lions are known for being big, loud, and Lazy.

    If you’d like a big cat to Idolize why not the Tiger? (Siberian or Bengal) both have been shown to defeat Lions in captivity (encounters in the wild would be rare if not impossible.)

    The Tiger(male or female) is larger, stronger, faster, possesses a higher intellect and has more experience fighting when compared to a Male Lion. Tigers are known to, when desperate, hunt and even sometimes kill full grown Grizzly Bears.

    Do any research at all and you’ll see this is VERIFIABLY accurate. Tigers>Lions 9/10. The original Tarzan movie even went through multiple Lions because THE TIGERS KEPT KILLING THEM.

    1. James W.

      Total fanboi fantasy, & utter spam.
      Useless/stupid tiger-worship propaganda..

      Anyhow, wrong topic, this is big angry ape vs dumpster diver.
      Our cuz can take this contest, if he has developed fightin’ skills.

    2. marvel2007210

      although tigers are stronger than lions bears are stronger than tigers and no way a tiger can kill full grown grizzlies

  20. Undoomed = aggressive troll

    Get a life losers who gives a fuck what animal would win, I know who would win in a punch on James or Undoomed? I say James cause undoomed sounds like the alias of some bed wetter still living at home with his Mama

  21. Brandon

    Way to ruin a good thread with all this talk about tigers and lions. A grizzly would eat that big ape no problem.

    The bear has CLAWS and a think hide
    The gorilla has nails and a thin hide

    The bear is BIGGER
    The gorilla is smaller

    The bear is a killer. Killing and eating smaller things is apart of its nature.
    A gorilla is a herbivore. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

  22. AP

    The Grizzly wins this one. Make no mistake about it, Gorillas are ridiculously strong. They can bend bananna trees in half, flip over small sedans, etc. However, the Grizzly is everything the Gorilla is, except it is many times larger and stronger and is armed with large claws and canines.

    Unless the Gorilla does not land a very solid, purposeful blow on the Grizzly’s skull or spine, the Grizzly should win this more often than not.
