* ''{{Carnivores}}'' would have been just another DeerHunter clone if it weren't a hunting simulator where the player can hunt dinosaurs.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' uses several dinosaur and related species-themed Mons over the years: Lapras (Plesiosaur), Aerodactyl (Pterosaur), Tyranitar (Franchise/{{Godzilla}} with some hints of ''T. rex''), Meganium (Diplodocus or other sauropods)), Groudon (vaguely T.rex-ish), Torterra (an ankylosaur [[MixAndMatchCritters crossed with a tortoise]]), Cranidos/Rampardos ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachycephalosauria Pachycephalosaurs]], not ''T. rex''), Shieldon/Bastiodon (Triceratops or other ceratopses), Rhyperior (an ankylosaur [[MixAndMatchCritters crossed with a rhino]]), , Archen and Archeops (Archaeopteryx), Amaura and Aurorus ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amargasaurus Amargasaurus]]) and Tyrunt and Tyrantrum (very unambiguously based on ''T. rex'').

* The ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' series features raptors as mooks. With the sequels and updates, you are getting a lot of dinosaurs (that happen to be changed slightly) that stand out. There may be odd hybrids and creatures that are outright dragons but the sheer number of dinos in the series is definitely worth looking through. That and the giant T-rex that Monster Hunter Tri introduces to you all.

* The "snappers" and "razors" from ''VideoGame/{{Gothic}}'' look like small T-rexes, only without any arms. The "biters" also resemble dinosaurs.

* ''VideoGame/DawnOfWar'' has the Greater Knarloc, best described as the offspring of a TRex and a terror bird as the Tau's Relic unit. Unfortunately it's a major case of AwesomeButImpractical as it's slow and lacks a ranged attack, meaning it spends most of its time turning around to chomp things.

* ''DragonQuest'' has the recurring Hackasaurus (or Battle Rex), [[AnAxeToGrind an axe-wielding]], [[DinosaursAreDragons fire-breathing]] tyrannosaurus. ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'', in particular, has Lizzie the Hackasaurus, whom you can get to join your team in a special encounter; in the DS remake, she's the ''only'' non-[[MascotMook Slime]] you can recruit.

* [[{{Prehistoria}} Dinosaur Jungle]] from ''[[SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Secret Rings]]'' are filled with dinosaurs. At one point, Sonic must evade the jaws of a rampaging ''TyrannosaurusRex'' (with horns). The game is based around Literature/ArabianNights.

** In addition, various types of dinosaurs (as well as several other well-recognized prehistoric animals such as pterosaurs and ''Dimetrodon'') are a fairly common basis for the [[ProceduralGeneration Procedurally Generated]] titans and forgotten beasts, which is rather odd seeing as vanilla dinosaurs are not among the creatures able to spawn in the current version of the game.
