* HyperactiveMetabolism: In the literal sense. The shrew was the winner as it ''required'' to eat three times their own body weight in one day to survive. And that meant ''lots of killing'', hence giving it the title.

* EnfantTerrible: The cuckoo was #3 because the first thing it does after hatching is push any other eggs out of the host bird's nest. Likewise, the hyena was #2 because the first things newborn hyenas do is attempt to kill their siblings.
** FetusTerrible: And the sandtiger shark was the winner because it eats its own siblings BEFORE it's born.

* [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys Everything's Worse With Monkeys]]: Monkeys were the Most Extreme city slickers, as they had become dependent on humans there. To the point of stealing food and clothing from humans- if the human didn't give food to the monkey, the monkey would run off with their clothing!

* YouFailBiologyForever / ArtisticLicensePaleontology: TyrannosaurusRex was more closely related to ''your standard chicken'' than it was to the Komodo dragon. A more appropriate anscestor for the Komodo dragon would be the mosasaur, a sea-going lizard that lived around the same time as the last dinosaurs and are thought to be distantly related to modern-day monitor lizards. It would be like saying the Andrewsarchus was the ancestor of the Gray Wolf just because they were mammalian apex predators.

*** In fact, most of the animals listed are not only not ancestors, but some of them lived ''at the exact same time'' as the animals professed to be their "descendants". The terror bird, Haast's eagle and the ground sloth qualify as well.
