PostSubject: Barioth vs Tigrex vs Nargacuga   Fri Dec 21, 2012 7:36 pm

As a continue from my "Deviljho vs Rajang" thread (which is currently tied in votes), I decided to make a thread for a battle that I think many people would like to see.

A deathmatch between the 3 pseudo-wyverns of monster hunter... or at least the well-known ones, I'm not sure if there's more...

Anyway, my vote would be Nargacuga because of his sheer combo speed in rage mode.

But there's an argument for all three, Tigrex being ridiclously fast and hitting like a fright train, Barioth for his tricky patterns and middle damage, Nargacuga, as I said before, for his quick patterns and damage in rage mode.

I just wanted to let you know i deleted the duplicate topic without poll.

But now that i'm here...let's see. I'll take this as an actual fight between monsters, and i'll assume open ground. Barioth would win with a home advantage due to his claws, which enable him to outspeed and outmaneuver the others, and he'd be able to use the walls to gain height and impact.

Nargacuga probably beats Barioth on an open ground, he just seems faster and more ferocious. I doubt Barioth's ice-attack would truly phaze any of the other monsters, unless used repeatedly on the same spot. Even then, both Tigrex and Nargacuga possess a lot of muscular strength and speed, so snow or ice won't be able to stick on and slow them down.

Tigrex is definitely the strongest of the three, and would win if he'd go head-to-head with any of the other two. That leaves the question: Would tigrex catch Narga? In my opinion, Nargacuga is fast, but not that fast. If he's smart enough, he won't try to beat tigrex by charging in from the fornt, but use his superior speed and aerial capabilities to assault him from the sides or above. He'll beat tigrex around with a few quick swipes, but tigrex's jumps are fast. At some point, tigrex will be able to jump into one of narga's attacks, and it turns into a slugfest, which tigrex wins.

It's not impossible that Narga is able to critically wound Tigrex, but he seems less equipped to get through Tigrex's tough hide. Tigrex will be able to limit Narga's ability to jump around simply by bashing him multiple times, which will win him the fight if it lasts long enough.

The location will be decisive though. Tigrex benefits from both an open flat, which enables him to keep charging at Narga, which will limit Narga's offensive options, and from an enclosed area, such as a cavern, where Nargacuga has no real way to get out of Tigrex's way, much less use his speed to any advantage. Anything in-between, such as a mountain area or a forest enables Nargacuga to jump all over the place, giving him plenty of options, while limiting tigrex's charging capabilities.

My vote goes to Tigrex, with Nargacuga a close second. Barioth doesn't get to play along, but is night unbeatable in his home turf.

This is in a new map I made called the "Snowy Forest Arena" or "Taiga Arena".

Same as land arena, just snowy, with trees, and no ledge or battle equipment.

What I imagined was Tigrex charging, and Narga leaping over it and tail slamming over all of Tigrex's body, the tip hitting his head (althought according to hitboxes, that gets the full force). Rinse and repeat until Tigrex dies.

Tigrex just because of how much more punishment it can take: barioth and narga are both faster but much less resilient, tigrex just refuses to die + tigrex is the only one with a reliable ranged attack (i bet neither barioth nor narga like taking huge boulders to their faces)

ps: other pseudowyvern i can think of

My vote is for Tigrex, he's just a vicious wyvern from all I've seen of it so far. Narga would be my second for its fighting style and assets.

Tifrex, hands down. Bari, I don't even think would hold a candle on his home turf, unless maybe 2-Ass came around and distracted the other 2, but even then, he would probably still get owned.

Tigrex simply has too many advantages over both of them. Now, if the game changed a little, say perhaps Narga and Bari were programmed to team up on Tigrex until he was out, then go after each other, that might be different.

But in a flat out deathmatch, Tigrex would stomp them both, and probably not even be winded afterwards.

Here is my battle scenario:
All are in a grassy plains area.
Nargacuga is stalking herbivores in the plains. Barioth is silently stalking nargacuga waiting for a chance to steel his prey. Though at the same time barioth has caught the attention of a tigrex. Tigrex charges at barioth so barioth goes into the plains. Narga spots both and takes a defensive stance. Tigrex then leaps and chomps on barrioth's neck, killing him. Nargacuga then attacks tigrex landing a good hit. Now tigrex is missing one eye. Tigrex then back-jumps and throughs 3 giant balls of dirt at narga. Narga then is dazed when tigrex charges and lands a finishing blow.

I know this is not using all of the monsters potential but I didn't want to make it long. Tigrex wins :P

dcj91x goes to put down full ecology information, move and size list as well as weakness information but gets distracted by a shiny object instead.

Because in the end does any of that matter when there's a pretty stone on the ground?

Tigrex, definitely Tigrex.

This I do base on my own hunting experiences with him. Somehow he's always the thorn in my eye out of these mentioned monsters. I don't have trouble with Barioth and Nargacuga.

Not to mention Tigrex is brute and raw power. A rampaging creature. Nargacuga can rely on it's sneakyness, I guess. But put him eye to eye with Tigrex, I'm sure he would be cowering! Same goes for Barioth.

I also think Tigrex would look way more intimidating because of his colors. I know most of you wouldn't consider this an important factor, but in nature it is. Creatures are scared by brightly colored creatures (well, most of the time) Combine that with Tigrex's raw power and he'll be the one sitting on the throne of corpses (:

I'd say Nargacuga because if Narg used his speed and stealth, he could probably manage to kill them all. But besides that, Tigrex would win anyway with his brute force and good speed (but not as fast as Narg). And then the Barioth is just weaker than the rest. I voted for Nargacuga.

looks like the vote is unanimous, which is sad cause i love barioth lol

though we cant forget something ,despite Tigrex's awesome brute strength and his viciousness, he does tend to be clumsy, his eyes only on the prey and nothing else. Leading him to goof up and slip up. I never really fought Narga but from what I heard, i think Narga could actually win against Tiggy cause narga seems a lot smarter and more aware. If Narga was careful and really using the surroundings to it's advantage, it could beat tiggy.

Sadly, as much as i love Barioth, i don't think it could win, it doesnt have the brute and doesnt seem to have the intelligence to compete, it's just fast and nimble which ive heard narga has plenty of as well.

so i think my vote will just go with Narga, even though narga and tiggy are about even, i prefer style over brute clumsiness lol

are we talking subspecies narga? cause the silvery one would destroy the others but if were talking normal narga... Tigrex would win, the way tigrex is built says to me that it could probably grapple narga during its attacks (thus removing narga's mobility) and than proceed to eat its face, barioth... not really a factor unless is stays out of the tigrex/narga clash then assasinates the victor. even then it would be close cause the victor would probably be raged...

You can't really put it in the pseudo-wyvern category considering it has retained it's ability of flight rather well. Unlike narga or tigrex it actively flies during a hunt unlike them that always stay grounded when they fly at you. If I remember right pseudo-wyvern was originally used to describe narga tigrex ukanlos and akantor that were in the flying wyvern family but had little to no ability in flight.

On the similarities bari and narga from unite and tri are pretty much carbon copies of each other, Only a few minor differences.

Pseduo-wyverns are classified as quadrepedial wyverns that are more adapt to ground locomotion yet still retain the ability to fly. Narga, Tigrex, and Barioth are all officially classified as pseudo-wyverns. whether or not they actually prefer to fly does not render them as a different wyvern classification. The only exception is the Akantor because even in-game notations hint that it may be misclassified as a pseudo-wyvern (Ukanlos and Odeibatorasu may have the same thing going on, but im not aware of such and have yet to see information regarding such)

In game they are officially classified as flying wyverns but if the game states pseudo-wyvern I am not sure I have not played unite in a while. So you may be wrong and I may be completely be making a fool out of myself. xD
