Which animals can a knight with plate armor and sword beat?
>>
>>2444200
Anything he/she can outrun and can't be crushed by.
>>
>>2444200
A very limited number of aquatic animals.

Every land animal in existence.

With some risk of injuries in the process for elephant/rhino/grizzly/polar bear etc, but people have even killed a thousand pound+ bear with their bare hands in years past, so doing it with a sword and steel protection would be a piece of cake.
>>
>>2444237
I'm pretty sure no one has killed an elephant with bare hands, and I don't think a knight would be able to.
>>
>>2444200
all of them, except for maybe birds which are hard to hit with a sword. literally any animal that's ever existed on this planet could probably die to a knight with a sword.
>>
>>2444200
Are we counting extinct animals?

If just extant animals, knight beats everything except for hippo elephant, rhino, and maybe a really big croc in certain circumstances.

If we're including extinct animals, I can think of quite alot of animals the knight wouldnt have a chance agaisnt.
>>
>>2444200
they do poorly against mosquitos, ticks, lice, fleas, really small spiders, house flies, mites, centipedes, earwigs, silverfish, firebrats, cucarachas, ants, bees, wasps, hornets, scorpions, dragonflies, mothes, butterflies, longhorn beetles, zooplankton, stuff like that.
>>
>>2444200
i'm sure any big animal would knock the knight on the ground and maul him to death
>>
>>2444253
>Are we counting extinct animals?
no these threads never count extinct animals

go make a paleo thread and stay in it
>>
>>2444237
What about a swarm of bees or fire ants?
>>
I've heard they are pretty good at killing Saracen Dogs.

Kekkity kek, Sir McKekkersson.
In all seriousness, an armored knight could probably all but the largest herbivores or bears. Not much else could crush the armor or bite through it. As for crocodiles, see pic related.

Dragon slaying is a lot less impressive when the dragon is that small

LETS GOOO!!!!

Would work best against ambush predators, and animals that rely on slashing and agility. Basically he's best equipped to fuck large cats up. The large cat can still kill him if it doesn't fight defensively to escape without getting injured and killed, simply because there's no way in fuck a human has the strength to kill something like a charge lion/tiger with 1 hit.

Large herbivores with crushing force will fuck his shit up 6 ways from Sunday. Elephants, bison, moose, rhinos, hippos, and none small bears are all guaranteed to win.
>>
>>2445172
>those proportions
>>
The only animals that might give him trouble are things like grizzlys, who could potentially cave his chest in through the breastplate.

Back when they actually hunted bears they didn't wear full plate, and I assume this is because a long spear with a sturdy crossguard (and 20 other men with the same, and some horses, and some dogs) is a better defence than some plate.
>>
>>2446105
pretty sure most elephants could still crush a man in plate

most land animals but elephants and a rhino would fucking wreck his shit, as would every species of army ants, bulldog ants and bullet ants
>>
a moose or elk would wreck a knights shit no problem

Thinking about large cats/non-herbivores could a jaguar literally crush the knight's skull while still in the helmet with it's bite?
>>
>>2446645
no

I reckon a skilled late knight with a thrusting sword could take an elephant, it's been done with spears plenty times

disgusting

>>2444200
a dragon

>>2444200
For what reason?
>>
>>2444200
depends on the skill level. if it's an actual person trained in combat, who is strong. possible. and the sword: if it's a classical sword like from the middle ages? maybe not, but one of these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKOlUs45KPo
