There are several conflicts in “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell; while person versus person is the most obvious, person versus self and person versus nature are also present. For example, the “jagged crags” upon which Rainsford lands scratch his hands until they are raw, and when Rainsford is trying to survive the hunt, nature once again acts as an obstacle. The muck is like “ a giant leech” and the insects “[bite] him savagely” through the dense vegetation. On the other hand, Rainsford faces an internal dilemma when he is talking to Zaroff about hunting humans for sport: while Rainsford is shocked by the proposition, he feels no revulsion, no disgust. Therefore, because Rainsford does not seem to have an internal aversion to Zaroff’s proposal, that causes a quandary - his lack of moral dilemma in this situation is a dilemma in itself.

This sounds like it would be a very sad place to live and if I were not personally living in it I would feel awful for the people that were.

Richard Connell once quoted, “There is no greater bore than perfection.” This exemplified perfection is something many people lust for, but can’t understand. Imperfections are what make people different from one another but, without imperfections, humans would be boring. Similarly, in Connell’s, “The Most Dangerous Game,” the antagonist, Zaroff, mentions being perfect is boring. As if he is referring to himself, he’s saying he’s a perfect hunter, but grows bored hunting animals, so he’s stepping up the game and starting to hunt humans instead. Sometimes if you succeed at everything it starts becoming boring after awhile; sometimes you just need to change the game and get out of your customary range of familiarity a bit to explore your possibilities.
Hunters will hunt for the joy and the thrill of killing an animal, but they do not consider the consequences. Body 1: Most animals don’t do anything to deserve being killed in the middle of their lives. Think about the harmless animals that haven 't been doing anything to hurt people. They get killed for no reason. Some people just want a new fur coat, some need a head on their wall, and others just want to kill for fun.
