      What if the human had a shotgun?
      Would he then be on S tier alongside with the rats?

        human and eagle withput a doubt mate. rats would try to work together which in this situation would hurt them. the eagles could pick the rats VERY easily

            I think you should switch the bear and lion. Some people have actually pitted a lion vs a bear and the bear wins every time. The lion rely on teamwork to take down prey like cattle and with a bear theyd be even worse off. Even if they were to manage it 2 lions would theoreticly be able to take down 1 bear, but the 2 bears would take down the other lions with ease and then youd have an equal number. The lions are simply not bulky enough to take a hit from the bear and wont have a chance to do anything the bear cant just shrug off.

                    The rats are an obvious choice because with an army of 10k they can easily link paws/tails to form one giant super rat mech.

                      I'm kind of dubious 50 eagles can actually do much to any of the larger animals on this list. It's a thing that weighs like 15 lb optimistically. If you slap it it's gonna break bones. If a bear slaps it it's dead. Unless you somehow get them to swarm around the VIP to obscure the line of sight, I don't see how they can actually take out the sniper.

                        I don't know about the bear vs 200 rats. I'm pretty sure a bear outweighs 200 rats by a lot.

                            I chose Humans and eagles because humans are great builders we could have the eagles be more offensive and the human building defenses (traps)

                              You can pick the human and get one sniper, or pick the eagles and get 50 snipers with a better vantage point and no concerns about ammo preservation

                                The fact that the picture included a specific rifle is what made the human choice significantly weaker. If a Human were to have access to its full potential arsenal then not picking it would be an automatic loss

                                Have you ever tried shooting a charging bear?
                                Have you ever tried shooting three charging bears?
                                That damn rifle won't do anything in the long run
                                (Btw out of curiosity I looked up some info. Rifles are apparently better than shotguns and handguns for killing bears. The bolt action rifle tier zoo mentions could probably take a minimum of a second between each shot. A bear can run at 40 miles per hour. If the bear starts 50 yards away, that gives you less than 3 seconds before it reaches you. Even if we say you can get three shots fired in that time, you probably wouldn't be accurate enough to hit it with every shot, and even if you did, that bear could probably still come at you and kill you. Then factor in that there are three bears.

                                The only way to deal with that amount of rats would be with a flamethrower, same with the eagles, that was my reasoning and picked those as the first option, I learned in ARK that nothing is worse than a swarm of flying or high mobility attackers, specially when they are small and hard to hit

                                  I get the reasoning and I agree that 10k is a ridiculous number to put in. That being said however, you are still wildly overestimating the DPS a rat can realistically be expected to deal. There's also the fact that they are hard countered by the crocs armour and possible even the bear's armour stats.

                                              So close! That's not a bolt action rifle, it's a semiautomatic shotgun - it could be loaded with shells adaptable to one-shot any animal on the list. The correct answer here is human and rats.

                                                  You could just pick rats, and still win. Simply have the rats climb on top of each other to create a dome of rats around you. Due to the count of 10,000 rats its presumable that the dome would be at least ten rats deep regardless of its diameter. All aggressors that attack that dome would have a cluster of the rats bite on to them, until they are taken down by the sheer number of bites. Even eagles couldn't do anything, as attempting to swoop in and pick off a single rat from the dome would leave them open to attacks from the surrounding rats.

                                                    Now im more interested in number balancing the meme, like maybe increasing gorilla numbers, reducing eagles by maybe 15, and rats down to 2500 or below. The. Numbers become more feasible for other classes, especially if you increase lion by 2, and bull by 4 and croc by 5-6 contingent on if its plains with no water barrier between the opposition and vip. Human might also be willing to get a buff by adding a second one armed with a spear/polearm of a sort alongside the rifleman.

Human creates a platform with ropes attached the eagles use that to lift u off the ground. With a rotation of eagles resting/flying to keep u in the air and a group to bring food/water up you can stay in the air out of reach of everything else full time and wait for your victory. This however assumes you have baisicly mind controll over the eagles, other than this 10k rats just fuck everything

If we don't make this a ridiculous fantasy battle royale and instead think about which animals would scare off the others, I think gorillas are the top choice (assuming they're large males, which the one in the picture was). Adult male gorillas reliably beat tigers and they're smart enough to work together and, importantly, defend you. 4 lions would be no threat to 5 silverbacks and doubt the wolves would even trouble you. Rats, eagles and bulls wouldn't attack you in the first place so what's the problem? The crocodiles are the biggest threat but if you move away from water their resolve goes down. I guess I'd pick the hunter purely so I don't need to worry about being shot.

                                                                        P.S. 10 crocs are certainly more powerful but they're stupid and asocial enough that I'd be afraid of them wandering off and leaving me undefended. If there was water I could hide in with the crocodiles, that would be ideal.

Google for this in relation to Walter Baumgartel - he's typically quoted on the topic. As for lions, they're incredibly tough and even they have very hard time killing one another. Gorilla isn't equipped to kill a lion. Yes, gorillas are very strong but they lack the coordination and instincts to apply that strength effectively in a fight.
                                                                          If you google for the various topic, you'll find that the fight between gorilla and a tiger will typically be in favour of the tiger, that said, even tigers sometimes get killed by leopards. Much can depend on how heavy each animalis.

                                                                          Do you have any examples of fully grown gorillas falling prey to leopards? I've only ever heard that about juveniles. Tigers occasionally kill adult gorillas but even then only the smaller females. In a straight up fight, a strong male gorilla can be expected to defeat a tiger.

                                                                        • I lick the insides of microwave popcorn packages

Lions are generally considerably heavier than gorillas (unless small-ish, then they're slightly heavier) and they are apex predators who hunt and kill heavier and dangerous game. Given that gorillas have reportedly fallen prey to leopards, they'd be no match for lions who are set out to get them.

For example 10 000 rats with a human could be 10,000 distractions and a ranged heavy hitter. Mean while bears and lions although a very powerful duo is all born and no intelligence, defense, or mobility.
