* There is a ''[[TyrannosaurusRex T. rex]]'' trophy [[GiantRobot robot]] in the [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Batcave]]. [[NoodleIncident How it got there]] or why is generally ignored, but the DCAU provides the hypothesis that Dick (Robin, at the time) [[SoCoolItsAwesome wanted to keep it]].

* ComicBook/AtomicRobo frequently deals with all sorts of weird superscience nonsense; of ''course'' that includes a genetically engineered dinosaur.

Dr. D also engineers a few of his own dinos from time to time.

** One version has this exact trope as the reason the Dinobots became the Dinobots: Having arrived on Earth during one of the Ice Ages, they find the atmosphere filled with energon, meaning they need to take an organic-based alt-mode to survive. However, team leader Grimlock isn't impressed by choices like the Woolly Mammoth or deer, and asks for something else. So the guy who suggested the idea checks, and finds some dinosaur fossils, and shows Grimlock a model of a T-Rex. Grimlock's reaction?

** ComicBook/NightOfTheOwls shows exactly why Batman keeps it: It's a security system, as the Talons [[GoombaStomp learn]] first hand.

* In a classic example, DC did a good deal of war comics in the 60s. One was called "The War that Time Forgot". It was WorldWarII... but there was an island full of giant apes, military test robots, an elite military unit called "The Suicide Squad" (related to the later DC group), circus acrobats, and, of course, dinosaurs. * Gert in ''Comicbook/{{Runaways}}'' has a pet ''Deinonychus'' named [[FluffyTheTerrible Old Lace]].

* ''{{Marvel 1602}}'' had little dinosaurs running around Europe, including at least one seeming to be [[Characters/{{Marvel1602}} Carlos Javier's]] pet. Not to mention that the standard big dinos can be found in North America.

** The ''JusticeLeague'' episode "Starcrossed", has Flash agreeing with this trope through and through. Alfred being [[DeadpanSnarker Alfred]] [[HilarityEnsues well...]] --> '''The Flash''': [[SoCoolItsAwesome Hey!]] [[CaptainObvious That's a Giant Dinosaur!]] :D --> '''Alfred''': [[SarcasmMode And here I thought]] [[DeadpanSnarker Batman was the detective.]] ** A GoldenAge comic (1946's "Batman" #35) shows the original origin of the T. Rex trophy: a "souvenir" from an adventure Batman and Robin had on "Dinosaur Island," a ''Franchise/JurassicPark''-style theme park with robotic dinosaurs (versus genetically-engineered ones). * ''Comicbook/TwoThousandAD'' had ''Flesh'', a story about future cowboys going back in time and killing dinosaurs for their meat, which was then exported back to their own time. This was used to provide STOMPY DINOSAUR ACTION crossovers into both ''Comicbook/JudgeDredd'' and ''ComicBook/ABCWarriors''. In the case of the latter, dinosaurs ended up on a terraformed dystopian Mars.

* The title character of ''{{Slaine}}'' has gone up against dinosaurs animated from amber. * The Tar Pits in ''SinCity'' feature dinosaur statues. Frank Miller said he put them there as an excuse to draw dinosaurs.

* XenozoicTales features lots of dinosaurs. [[AfterTheEnd after an environmental apocalypse]] drove humanity into underground bunkers, humanity returns to the surface to find dinosaurs along with species from all prehistoric eras roaming around. The series came to be associated with the name "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs", just to make sure people understood the coolness. * The graphic novel ComicBook/DinosaursVsAliens adds aliens to the mix. The dinosaurs themselves are depicted as sentient and capable of tool-making and wear warpaint and body armor to give them more of an edge.
