PostSubject: Could Rexy, in her prime, beat Indominus Rex?   Tue Jun 07, 2016 10:06 pm

Hello there, everyone! I know this may sound a bit repetitive or redundant, but I got a little question that I'd like your personal opinion about: We all know that while JW Rexy put up a good fight 1 on 1, she was just too old and she was only fighting in a "territorial" way, so Indominus Rex overpowered her. However, in round 2 when JW Rexy fought back again, she was giving it her all and was rag dolling Indominus before the Mosasaur finished her. So could Rexy in her prime (JP1-JP The Game-The 10 years of her in the wild before her recapture to JW) beat or at the very least hold her own longer than JW Rexy?

Personally, I think if Rexy was in her prime, then the fight would definitely be more even, around 50-50. Now, Rexy has got some pretty cool feats under her belt. She rammed through a huge log without any real injuries, flawlessly ambushed a Gallimimus herd and caught one despite no experience beforehand, and was able to take on and arguably curb stomp Lady Margret, the BIG alpha Triceratops. Again, with with her first fight ever with something that big. So, if she was in her prime, she would be a lot stronger, a lot faster, and have a lot more stamina.

What do you guys think?

I do believe it would be a lot more even, and Rexy definitely wouldn't go down within a minute. I want to believe Rexy could win, but it would be a bloodbath.

Rexy for sure. She gave a pretty good fight as an old lady in JW, and I think she could flat out win against the Indominus if she was younger.

Do we know for sure that Rexy was old in JW? I know real T.rexes have a life span of 30 years. But in Universe, is she really old? We don't know for sure. Don't get me wrong Rexy is my favourite dinosaur in the franchise, but I think the Indominus is just way to much for her. And imagine an Indominus in her Prime (beeing over 50ft long) *shivers*.

She's at least over 25 years old. She's on her last years of her life.

Yeah, she's getting close to her end, and she was slimmed down to show that. Trevorrow(sp?) or someone on the crew said JW was like her Unforgiven, implying she's basically at the end of her rope but coming out for one last hurrah. I wouldn't be surprised at all if, assuming JW2 is set a few years in the future, Rexy was completely omitted or mentioned in supplementary material to have passed gracefully between events.

She had a good run.

How old was she in Jurassic Park, 3 years right? So they must have enhanced her growth right? Then she was definitely old ^^

The JP wiki says she was born in late '89 or early '90, though I don't know how accurate that is since even the citation says it's unconfirmed. The Nublar incident of '93 makes her 3 years old, give or take a few months. Fast-forward to 2015, 22 years later, and she'd be at least 25 years old, which would align with the JW website claiming she'd been on Nublar for the past 25 years.

If we're to assign her a typical lifespan of 30 years, she'd really be pushing it by JW, sadly. It's a wonder she was still able to tango with the iRex for as long and hard as she did. I can't fault her for going down; it'd be like a 70-year-old grandpa trying to take down a 20-year-old football player in my mind.

To be honest, though, iRex's arms gave it a huge advantage over Rexy. It was able to reach out and perform attacks Rexy couldn't, as well as use holds/grabs/pushes that Rexy couldn't. Not to mention picking itself up, which Rexy can't do as quickly. Not to mention its bone skin probably helped it survive Rexy's maw.

Very true. But Rexy did learn quickly and avoided those arms in Round 2, so she's not TOTALLY helpless with I.rex's arms.

The oldest known T.rex (28yrs) died of a throat and jaw infection that disabled it of hunting. It's very possible that Rexy still has 10, 20, even 30 years to enjoy if she has a healthy food supply.

No. Nein. Never. Nope. Ño. Não. Not a chance.


I.rex was built to be better than any T.rex, and that includes the lovely Rexy. She had the same bite force as a T.rex (since her base genome is a T.rex), longer and stronger arms with opposable thumbs, hardened skin, and probably stronger bones too. Let's also remember it didn't take 30 seconds to I.rex take out Rexy and almost kill her (she would, if Blue didn't appear, that's a fact). I guess it would take a little longer to I.rex take out Rexy in her prime, but the result would be the same. Let's just admit, no T.rex is stronger enough to beat a bio weapon.

So yeah, she would get her ass kicked too.

I would agree if this was Prime Rexy against a hypothetical adult iRex, but I disagree when it comes to the iRex we saw in JW.

I still think the movie I.rex could beat prime Rexy. I guess we can classify I.rex as a sub-adult, since she had 12 meters on the movie (?) and the actual adult has 15 meters.


I think the only problem with I.rex is that she didn't have experience in fighting, but again, she figured out how to kill 5 apatosaurus, 1 ankylosaurus and take down Rexy pretty quickly.

But anyway, different opinions are always welcome. Smile

I believe Rexy could take it here, though she might die of injuries from the battle sometime after.

I feel like I.Rex would just be to crazy and slip up. Like it was a powerhouse but thats how it won, not be skill. Where as T.Rex had years of hunting in the wild.

Sort of like a professional light weight against an off the streets heavy weight.

If I remember correctly, the JW herbivores were kind of dumbed down to avoid any problems with the guests, so killing the Apatos isn't that impressive considering, although I will say figuring out how to kill the Anky (after taking a direct hit to the jaw) was a great feat...though Rexy is probably too smart to risk going after those guys.

If the Anky did that and tried to defend itself/the group, I have no doubt that the Apatos could be defensive too. I hate when they make herbivores look like docile cows. They could pretty much deal a lot of damage. I know killing 5 big sauropods is kinda exagerated, but then I remember we're talking about a bioweapon here in a sci fi movie so, I let it pass. I think Rexy would look at these guys and think "nope, I won't risk myself here with this" and turn away. But, I.rex didn't even know what she was, so she would mess with everything to figure out what she was and where she belonged in the food chain. She was a monster, but I still see a confused animal there too.

In all honesty? Doubt it. She'd probably do a bit better than she did in the film, but zoo animals kept in good condition can be perfectly fit and healthy even in advanced age thanks to medical care and lower stress (disease and stress are two primary factors behind aging making one weaker). Even assuming JP:The Game is still canon, Rexy at most has been living in the wild for less than a decade of her life and has been in the care of professionals for most of that time. Rexy in her prime would probably be only barely stronger than she was in JW.

And recall that the Indominus wasn't in peak condition either in that fight. By then she'd already fought an Ankylosaurus, multiple Apatosaurs, shot in the mouth with a shotgun multiple times, tasered, been shot about a dozen times with high caliber rounds, got caught in a rocket launcher shockwave, had run across the whole island nonstop, and fought a pack of raptors. She went through all that, and she still trounced Rexy immediately after the latter.

The Indominus was supposed to be the ultimate theropod and baring maybe the non-canon Ultimasaurus, she's probably the strongest carnivorous dinosaur in the franchise. Someone like Rexy or the JP3 Spino could give her a good run for her money, but 1v1 I think she'd just too strong.

It would be a much closer battle, she would have a lot more experience over the Indominus. But still, 50/50 I think

We have to figure in something. Rexy's hunting and fighting experience. She knows the island in every way possible so she knows parts of the island that Indominus doesn't. We have to remember that Indominus was basically raised in a big steel box and she hasn't explored the entire island.

Rexy could easily lure I. rex into a part of the island she hasn't explored and fight her in that area. That would give her a main advantage. Not only that, but here's another factor: When she was younger, Rexy would have been far more aggressive and territorial.

I say that Rexy would win, but she'd be be badly wounded. She wouldn't die from them, but she'd have a part of her lifespan reduced by a few years.

No way in hell. I think we're overcomplicating it here. The only reason we had the same T. Rex was fanservice, and never once did anyone making the film comment on her being weakened by age. In fact, Trevorrow even suggests in a podcast interview that she underwent a kind of graceful aging, likening her to some actor (I forget whose name) who got grittier and more badass with age. The whole point was that this artificial creature is stronger than any animal nature created, by a significant margin. No therapod would've been capable of killing her.

And was there anything geriatric about Rexy once Blue jumped in the fray? No, she was absolutely kinetic. She literally picked up the Indominus and slammed her on the ground like Hulk Hogan.
