** InformedJudaism: WordOfGod says that Frank Einstein is Jewish. Given his [[AlbertEinstein namesake]], this shouldn't be ''too'' much of a surprise.

** The ramblings of the Wallace Bishop in Antarctica revealed that he was once the lab partner of Einstein. Bartholomew Enderson thought that he was talking about AlbertEinstein, but from what we later learned from [[spoiler:Frank Einstein in the Maelstrom Temple]]... Other things said by Wallace Bishop foreshadowed the big reveal.

* GuiltFreeExterminationWar: Played with, discussed, and defied. The Mutant Dinos are apparently DumbDinos that exist only to kill and destroy, and therefore most of Dino Attack Team doesn't think twice about exterminating the monsters responsible for the apocalypse. However, the efforts of Rex and other like-minded agents reveal that the Mutant Dinos are actually intelligent NonMaliciousMonsters forcibly controlled by Dr. Rex [[spoiler:and the Darkitect]], and therefore these agents go to great lengths to try finding alternative means of victory. This is the source of a lot of conflict between Dino Attack agents.

* GenreShift: Granted it's very hard to determine exactly what genre this would be, but different writers lean toward different angles. While it could be consistently classified as a war story, Between That Guy and Atton Rand it comes closer to science fiction of varying degrees of hardness, with efforts to keep things semi-grounded in reality; whereas Andrewnuva treats it more like fantasy. Many of Atton Rand's later posts could almost border on cosmic horror on a potentially Lovecraftian scale, while Andrewnuva199's still opted for the relatively lighthearted tone of the source material.

* ImmediateSelfContradiction: In ''Dino Attack in a Nutshell'', everybody dies, and the survivors live happily ever after.



* IntendedAudienceReaction: Atton Rand feels repulsed by Andrewnuva199's illustration of Pterisa, which was the exact impression that [=PeabodySam=] wanted [[TheGrotesque Pterisa's appearance]] to invoke.

* InternalReveal: The first time Pterisa revealed herself, it was a surprise to readers, but only revealed to the founding members in-universe. Therefore, when her identity was revealed a second time in the Maelstrom Temple battle in front of a lot of Dino Attack agents, players already knew this, but it was still treated as a major reveal in-universe.



* KeepAway:
** Reptile, Coral, and other Dino Attack agents tossed around the Overloader during the LEGO Island Laboratory battle, in an effort to [[GoingToGiveItMoreEnergy overload the Brickspider Bot]] while keeping the device out of its hands. Unfortunately, the plan ultimately failed when the Brickspider Bot seized the Overloader, forcing Reptile to destroy it.
** Dino Attack Team tossed around the Maelstrom Crystal in the Maelstrom Temple to keep it away from the Stromlings.



** [[ColdSniper Sniper]] versus [[spoiler:TheMole Ata]]. Although Sniper's "knife" was [[UpToEleven a machete]], [[spoiler:Ata]] won.
* KnifeNut: Dust, Spy, Silencia Venomosa, [[spoiler:[[TheMole Ata]]]], and Oswald Fabello

* LivingEmotionalCrutch: A central theme of ''Love and War''. Roger was one to Amanda, and Rex takes it upon himself to become Amanda's new crutch after Roger is captured (and later killed) by Finister, since he doesn't want her to end up like Kotua or Phantom. She ultimately becomes his crutch too, [[spoiler:which has devastating effects when she dies during the final battle]].



* ALizardNamedLiz: Tamed Mutant Dinos are often named this way, such as Maw the T-Rex, Fang the Raptor, and Screech the Pterosaur.

* GenreSavvy:
** Evil Ogel appears quite aware that Rex has an uncanny ability to survive.
** Amanda Claw, when it comes to disposing of bodies.
** Rex, Reptile, and other characters have mused that XERRD seems to follow nearly every villain cliche, right down to HerrDoktor.
** Anybody from VideoGame/LEGOIsland, apparently. This includes Andrew and Zachary.
** Stranger too, to a lesser extent.

* TheInfiltration: Perhaps thanks to its ''Alpha Team: Mission Deep Freeze RPG'' predecessor, ''Dino Attack RPG'' reeks of this trope. Examples of Infiltrations include Dr. Rex planting Rex in the Dino Attack Team (which led to Rex BecomingTheMask), XERRD planting TheMole in Dino Attack Team, Dino Attack Team planting a ReverseMole in XERRD, and the infiltration squads DressingAsTheEnemy while sneaking about the XERRD Fortress.
