Hasn't anybody seen king kong?

Anyway, I think a gorilla's range of motion gives it the definitive advantage here. I think a double-fisted slam to the top of the head could incapacitate it, and another could just scramble its brains.

Vote: Gorilla

Tigers are bigger and stronger. A cheetah's strength is the sprint, but what use is it against an animal that likely won't run away? Even if the cheetah ran away, it can only sprint for so long until exhaustion. Tiger hunts cheetah down, cheetah dead.

Without a doubt, the tiger wins.

Tiger. Bigger, stronger, more stamina over time.

Pfft who brings fictional movie logic to a battle of animals based on real life strengths? Size to strength ratio for Kong probably wasn't even right to begin with.

Anyways, I vote for Tiger because of the aforementioned reasons.

Right, god forbid I bring fictional logic into a debate about a fight between a gorilla and a crocodile :-P

And, Tiger. Common sense.

Gorillas have been known to take out multiple crocodiles at once, even undead ones.

Tiger. They are bigger and stronger and I think could easily kill a cheetah 1 on 1. Sure cheetah's have speed but their power against the tiger is just lacking.

My vote: Tiger

Tiger would easily win a cheetah is made for speed whereas a tiger is a strong powerful ambush hunter a cheetah wouldn't stand a chance if a tiger got hold of it.
