Okay, so one of my monsters is a dinosaur called a Giganto, a Gigantosaurus mutated by Chaos Energy (more on that here). Like all my monsters, Gigantos have an Enchantment granted to whatever kills them, which they naturally hold themselves. In this case, the enchantment is Gigantis.
Gigantis basically defies the square-cube law for a Giganto, allowing for the strength of its muscles and bones to increase enough with size to bear its increased weight as it scales up, and keeping speed the same as it grows (so it moves at the same speed as it did as a spry little hatchling even as a big, sorta chunky adult). My question is simple: How Beneficial is Gigantis for a Giganto?
The strength and durability of a Giganto's bodily materials (bone, flesh, muscle) are twice that necessary to deal with their increased size as they grow. However, I have been unable to figure out A) how big a Giganotosaurus adult is compared to a hatchling, and B) where exactly Giganotosaurus live. As for hatchling size, Giganotosaurus and T.Rex are similar enough that you can use the size of a T.rex hatchling and go from there.
The movement speed and agility of a Giganto remains the same as it grows, so it will run just as fast as an adult as it did as a hatchling (after it became capable of running of course). This should make a Giganto far faster and more maneuverable than it should be given its size, and according to livescience.com, Regular Giganotosaurus were probably "fairly" fast and agile, with a top speed of 31.3 mph and they may have great balance and the ability to make tight turns. I am uncertain how impactful a Giganoto's increased speed and agility will be, however.
The Gigantis Enchantment also makes it so a Giganto, despite its greater speed and strength, has the same metabolic needs as a regular Giganotosaurus of its size, because it draws off ambient magic to power that increased strength and speed. However, the efficiency of digestion, circulation, respiration and even thermoregulation scale up linearly alongside strength and durability with size, allowing Gigantos to potentially grow even larger than a regular Giganotosaurus.
"How beneficial is this enchantment" translates to "How much will this enchantment aid a Giganoto in A) surviving and B) preying on other animals?"
EDIT: I now understand this answer is highly dependent on the environment, but after due and diligent search, I haven't been able to determine if a Giganotosaurus' environment was the swamps and wetlands of South America or the plains and woodlands of South America. Whichever one it is shouldn't matter, as my world is based on Europe and Europe has both in abundance.
EDIT 2: There is only one species of Giganotosaurus, which is Giganotosaurus carolinii.
Specifications For Best Answer:
The best answer will determine or estimate how strong, tough, and agile an adult Giganoto will be compared to a regular Giganotosaurus, using the information above.
The best answer will also take into account the two possible habitats for this creature; the swamps and wetlands of Europe or the plains and woodlands of Europe.
The best answer will then determine how lethal a Giganoto will be; how hard it will be to escape, hurt, or take a hit from, both for its animal prey (in either of the two environments above) and humans (which I do not count as animals). As a frame of reference, creatures it may prey on include minivan-sized Plop, Gluttons, and
Engulfers, with some prehistoric inclusions like Titanoboa, Carbonemys, and maybe even Sarcosuchus for the swamp and Macrauchenia, entelodonts like Daeodon, chalicotheres like Moropus, Toxodon, maybe even rhinos like Paraceratherium for the grasslands.
