A Viking runs the gauntlet
The Viking is wearing chainmail armour, carrying a wooden shield, boar spear, Carolingian sword and Dane axe.

The fight happens in an open field with the Viking and the enemy starting off 500 metres apart. This is not an endurance gauntlet and the Viking returns to full health after each round.
The Viking clears. He's leagues better armed than these animals.
The grizzly bear would start presenting a problem but the Viking will still win if he is careful as with the other predators pass round 3. Otherwise he clears the gauntlet.

I honestly think a single ht from the dane axe or the boar spear is enough to kill any of the predators in this gauntlet. His best weapon here will be the spear, those things are devastating against predators.
Yeah the Viking probably clears imo, though the bull might be able to kill him by tossing him through the air.



But the Viking is still likely to defeat the bull more often than not.
The bull will indeed be hard to beat, especially because of how the bull is likely to just charge in and not care about any flesh wounds. However, I think the chainmail will protect the viking if he manages to drive that spear into the bull's skull before it reaches him.
I would say the viking gets killed off by the bull.
The Viking weapons are tested in this video:

The viking would clear it and someone would write a song about him defeating dragons(Postosuchus and Inostrancevia will be poetically scaled up and named as dragons).

Yeah, I can imagine that lol. And it will eventually become a legend.
