Acrocanthosaurus atokensis v Tyrannotitan chubutensis
#1
Acrocanthosaurus atokensis
Acrocanthosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that existed in what is now North America during the Aptian and early Albian stages of the Early Cretaceous. Like most dinosaur genera, Acrocanthosaurus contains only a single species, A. atokensis. Its fossil remains are found mainly in the U.S. states of Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas, although teeth attributed to Acrocanthosaurus have been found as far east as Maryland. Acrocanthosaurus was a bipedal predator. As the name suggests, it is best known for the high neural spines on many of its vertebrae, which most likely supported a ridge of muscle over the animal's neck, back and hips. Acrocanthosaurus was one of the largest theropods, approaching 12 meters (40 ft) in length, and weighing up to 6–7 metric tons (6.5–7.5 short tons). Large theropod footprints discovered in Texas may have been made by Acrocanthosaurus, although there is no direct association with skeletal remains. Recent discoveries have elucidated many details of its anatomy, allowing for specialized studies focusing on its brain structure and forelimb function. Acrocanthosaurus was the largest theropod in its ecosystem and likely an apex predator which possibly preyed on large sauropods and ornithopods.

Tyrannotitan chubutensis
Tyrannotitan (meaning "titanic tyrant") is a genus of huge bipedal carnivorous dinosaur of the carcharodontosaurid family from the Aptian stage of the early Cretaceous period, discovered in Argentina. It is closely related to other giant predators like Carcharodontosaurus and especially Giganotosaurus as well as Mapusaurus. Tyrannotitan is the geologically oldest known giant carcharodontosaurid along with the more basal Acrocanthosaurus from North America (both found in Aptian-age rocks). Unlike other known carcharodontosaurids, this animal lacks pneumaticity extending into the sacral and caudal centra. The scapulocoracoid is fused, and much better developed than that of Giganotosaurus carolinii, yet the arm is very small. Most of the shaft of the scapula is missing. The length of these animals has been estimated at up to 11.4–12.2 metres (37–40 ft). In 2010, Gregory S. Paul gave higher estimations of 13 metres (43 ft). Its weight has been estimated between 4.9 and 7 tonnes (5.4 and 7.7 short tons).

The acrocanthosaurus looks a lot more like a tyranosaurid and hunts large souropods. Probably crushing bite vs slicing bite?

Acrocanthosaurus is part of the Carcharodontosauridae family so it would have the same slicing bite to the other carcharodontosaurids this would be a very close battle imo.

Its difficult to really say who would have the size advantage here because we really dont have much when it comes to Tyranotitan we can only guess. Franoys has Tyrannotitan at around 10.8 to 11.6 meters long and around 6.5 tons https://www.deviantart.com/franoys/art/T...-638061698

Franoys has Acro at 11.5 meters long and around 6.3 tons https://www.deviantart.com/franoys/art/A...-732048959

And of course there would be larger individuals for both genus we just don't have the evidence yet id say they were probably around the same size this really could go either way i don't think either animal has any big advantages over the other id say they were probably equally as fast as each other and both had very deadly slicing bites 50/50 really imo
