* The ending of the WWD episode New Blood, when a herd of ''[[STockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Plateosaurus]]'' march in, scaring off the ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Coelophysis]]''.
** Especially the music. And even more especially the Narration. "This is the shape of things to come. The Age of the Dinosaurs has dawned."

* TearJerker though it might be, the ApocalypseWow at the end of "Death of a Dynasty" is [[SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome magnificently executed]]. After a blinding light emanates from the fateful meteor crashing into Earth far away, the ground begins to shake and the massive cloud of the blast front sweeps in over the mountains. The T. rex chicks and their mother's corpse are swept away by the incredible wind as debris flies everywhere -- then, finally, a rain of molten rock comes down as Creator/KennethBranagh proclaims: "This is the end of the Age of the Dinosaurs."

The following series have their own pages:
* ''Awesome/WalkingWithBeasts''



* In a lot of media, [[StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs ground sloths]] are portrayed as slow-moving animals that easily fall prey to predators. Not this one.
** The fatal wound the sloth gives a sabre-toothed cat almost resembles a DopeSlap.
* That awesome scene towards the end of the episode "Next of Kin", where our ancestors sent the ''Dinofelis'' running with its tail between its legs… by throwing rocks at it. No test of strength or speed; they used their ''brains'' and refused to back down.



* The juvenile indricothere. The narrator states that the calf after being driven away by its mother and hasn't been seen in months. You begin to detect a DownerEnding, but then the indricothere returns, and when two ''entelodonts'' (aka Pigs from Hell) appear, the teen beast just effortlessly chases them off, and bellows as if to say, "Don't even ''think'' of messing me, mofos."
** Then he ''runs down [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the cameraman!]]''
* From the episode ''Sabretooth'', Half Tooth make his glorious entry by rescuing his cub and chasing off a pair of [[FeatheredFiend Terror birds]].
** The hunting scene of the Smilodon clan clearly shows that they are one the [[BadassCrew most deadly predator on the planet]]
** Half Tooth vs the Evil Brotherhood round 2!! Half tooth manage to kicks the intruder's butt once and for all.
** The ''[[NotSoHarmlessVillain Megatherium]]'' shows why despite his lumbering appearance, it is still one of the [[TheDreaded most feared creature]] in the plain

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFHITnJ52pI opening]] to ''Cruel Sea'' is probably the most memorable moment of the entire series, when Branagh narrates "The predator is laying in wait for its prey, waiting to strike," with a ''Eustreptospondylus'' peering into the ocean expectantly - when suddenly a giant ''Liopleurodon'' leaps out of the water, snatching the large theropod off the land for a tasty meal. The episode title card, "Cruel Sea", punctuates the moment.

* From the episode ''Sabretooth'', the Half tooth make his glorious entry by rescuing his cub and chasing a pair of [[FeatheredFiend Terror birds]], despite the fact this would be impossible in RealLife, mostly because ''Phorusracos'' was already extinct and that species of sabre tooth had yet to evolve.

*** Unfortunately, they hunted in a way that would have been physically impossible in RealLife: they were neither fast nor agile and would not have caught anything that way.



*** Once again goes against everything known about ''Smilodon''. These entries are more of a Crowning Moment Of Fail for the WWD team.

* Patchi saving [[{{Jerkass}} Scowler]] (the dinosaur who picked on him everyday, kicked him out of the herd, and [[IHaveNoSon refused to call him his brother]]) from the Gorgosaurus. In fact, he and the herd work together to drive the predators back, and he even breaks Gorgon's arm with [[ChekovsGun the hole in his frill]] and knock some teeth out. And the line he says shows how far he's come.

* Don't forget the fight between Patchi and Scowler. Of course [[spoiler:Patchi lost]], but it's still amazing how he refuses to back down from his bullying brother.
