Werebear
Werebears are a type of creature found on Solstheim. They are a variant of lycanthrope, and are similar in most respects to werewolves, with the obvious exception of their appearance. It is not possible for the player to become a werebear, however. According to On Lycanthropy, Skyrim is said to be teeming with werebears, and they are the reason some people use Canis Root, as it is believed that smearing crushed Canis Root on trees surrounding the home repels these Werebears. Interestingly, werebears are only found on the island of Solstheim, an outlying island formerly the property of the province of Skyrim. In the past, the Daedric Prince Hircine used the island for hunts using lycanthropes. They perform in the same manner as werewolves as their attacks are identical. They attack with their claws and teeth, but also possess a lunge attack which knocks the target off their feet. Unlike werewolves, some werebears revert to their natural form upon death.

Quercylurus major
Quercylurus major is an extinct nimravid carnivoran, or "false sabre-tooth," from the early Oligocene of France. Its fossils are found from Early Oligocene strata in Quercy. Q. major. was possibly the largest nimravid ever known, as its fossils suggest it was similar in size to the modern-day brown bear and was scansorial. Its weight has been estimated at around 300 kg. It was very muscular, walked on plantigrade (flat-footed). So far, there is only one described species within this genus - Q. major.

The Nimravid wins because of robutness, superior bite force and grappling ability

Better grabbling than something that is pretty much a hominoid, but with even claws on their fingers? Ahhh.

Quercy would probably have the strength advantage if we were going by the kind of strength their realistic builds would provide but in game the werebear can send fully grow men flying 20 or so feet, they're also likely faster, more agile, and better armed. I don't see many advantages for quercy.

Werebears are strong enough to knock away people like ragdolls, their claws are sharp enough to cut through armor made of iron, steel, and other metals, and like many Skyrim creatures, they can take swords, magic attacks, arrows, and other such attacks for a while.

I think the Werebear can win this pretty handily.

I bet takes more than 30 men plus the wear bear is more hominid than ursid. Hows it going to use its claws when the nimravid has the flexibility advantage. The false-cat's weaponry is too much for the half hominid half ursid monster

Don't forget that the Werewolves alone can send a Giant flying a few meters. Imagine what a Werebear could do

So Quercylurus can kill animals way larger than itself so what's the difference.The Giant lacks weaponaryl that's why the werewolf threw it away

This isn't about killing larger animals, this is about the absurd amount of strength nedded to casually fling a giant. Not to mention, even if it was about the size of the kill, skyrim's werewolves still have a definite edge, as you can be a dragonslaying werewolf in the game.

Skyrim's giants are about 11-12 feet tall. Scaling a human to that height yields a weight of over 450 kilograms, though the giants are somewhat leaner than humans, so a weight of 400 kilograms would probably be more reasonable. Regardless, the amount of power needed to send a humanoid that massive flying 20 feet back is immense. In fact, it's a pretty far cry from the strength you would expect to see from a creature that is not within the multi-tonne range.

If the nimravid gets hit even once by a blow like that, it's pretty much lost the battle. It wouldn't be in fighting shape after being flung away by a werebear.

Whether the giants are armed or not makes no difference in the amount of force needed to swat them away. Not to mention, Skyrim's giants ARE armed, as they all carry around large, primitive maces.
