Hey guys, I'm working on ideas for my webcomic and I'm curious as to who do you guys thing is a bigger threat and the more dangerous for?

Dragons; giant, fire-spewing hoarders and the mortal enemy of the common knight, or the lumbering, brutish giant with its nearly limitless strength and bottomless appetite?

There are extremes on both sides; no real definite answer, but who fills you with the most dread? Why? Which would you face, if you had to deal with one or the other?

If you want to make your opinion official take a trip over to the Pact Comic website to vote, but either way I'd love to talk about the pros and cons and who you think is the ultimate winner. http://pactcomics.weebly.com/news--upda ... n-vs-giant

But anyway, thanks for dropping by, God bless!

Personally, I think dragons are more dangerous, simply because they can move quickly and they tend to be extremely intelligent and cunning. But I cause it depends on the situation. Anywho, that's my two cents :)

Aye, thats indeed true, Dragons for the most part do tend to be more agile and intelligent then giants though to give them their due giants do have enough brains to craft and use simple weapons most of the time but a good tactic beats a crude club nine out of ten times I suppose.

Thank you for weighing in Tamuril, please do drop back by if you think of any other good points for this showdown!

God bless. :D

That depends on too many variables to say for certain.

Dragons may be nothing more than fire-breathing lizards, so just staying out of sight might be enough for them to become distracted the same way geckos forget about crickets if they are not starving. Giants may be as clever as the most well-learned of humans, or as bumbling and foolish as a toddler. Both intelligence and beastly stupidity have a different sort of fear attached to them.

They could match up equally in terms of hunger, rage, malice, greed, and blood-lust. If speaking is more terrifying than roars, either have had both. If ugliness is terrifying in such large proportions, either could be hideous beyond the lot of mortals. A dragon could be terrifying in its smallness where I giant could not, but small creatures are not so insurmountable a fear.

Depending on what world you inhabit, either could be the more terrifying. Dragons in one world may be masterful liars, but so were the giants of Harfang in The Silver Chair. If it came down to a beast or a human being the more terrifying, it may be easier to determine based on the situation, but dragons are as often sentient as not, so that line is more difficult to draw. It depends too heavily on the circumstance and what types of giants and dragons are already in the world. Even the unknown enemy may not be as feared as the known one, or vice versa.

The best I could say is that, if both are so large that one could hide out of sight, then the more terrifying one would be that which has the better sense for detecting those hidden (whether hearing, smell, et cetera) because it would then be much harder to escape.

Aye, there is so much to consider, so many variables to much for a clear winner....Unless it is a Cyborg Draagon THATS your GOAT. XD

I am affected more by fear of giants than of dragons. There have been a lot more giant-antagonists than dragon-antagonists in the stories I've read, especially the stories I read when I was a child (The Giant's heart, Jack the Giant-killer, etcetera), so that's probably why I feel that way. Also, dragons are animals, whether intelligent or not, and I have always had more antipathy to humans than animals.

Same here, I think it is because they are so close to being human, it is just creepy like if an adult thought a baby would make a good snack, at least dragons are strongly defined as animals which makes them wanting to eat a person more natural. O.o
