In S1E2 of The Mandalorian, the protagonist encountered a creature that he later referred to as a "mudhorn".
In the battle, the creature was exceedingly strong, overpowering the Mandalorian. His rifle malfunctioned and it looked like the creature would kill him, but in the end (and with help) the mudhorn died very easily.
After the mudhorn charged the Mandlaorian and threw him through air for the third time, we see him dazed, bruised, holding out a small dagger as the large creature charges toward him one final time. The "yoda species" baby uses a force-like power to lift the mudhorn in the air, saving the Mandalorian. The Mandalorian stabs the mudhorn (with the small dagger) and it dies.
How could this have happened? The dagger only seems to be a few inches long.
A small wound from a dagger would be unlikely to kill such a large creature.
Was he just lucky?
Was the dagger poisoned?
Did the Mandalorian know about and target a "weak spot" on the mudhorn?
