** Especially {{Egregious}} considering the simple fact that neither of those characters are in the novel, although a reader who never saw the movie would just assume its what the two unrelated main characters of the novel look like. It even extends to the dinosaur on the cover, which is an adult TyrannosaurusRex. While the Tyrant Lizard King is present in the book, it's only in infant form and the main threat comes from a similar ''Tarbosaurus'' who is a completely different coloration than the film beast.

* CurbStompBattle: A pride of lions panics at the escaping dinosaurs and a few attack the ''Tarbosaurus''. We see the ''Tarbosaurus'' minutes later without one of the offending lions in sight.

We see the ''Tarbosaurus'' minutes later without one of the offending lions in sight. sight and blood on its jaws, leaving little to suspect who was victorious between the 150-200 kilogram lions and the 6,350 kilogram dinosaur.



* FragileSpeedster: The ''Deinonychus'' isn't especially durable, but is extremely agile and fast as it disembowels people with one slash; being compared to Bruce Lee with knives on its feet.



* TheJuggernaut: The ''Tarbosaurus'' tanks through attacks by a whole pride of lions, smashing through multiple metal fences, getting shot repeated, bashing over a helicopter, and forcing its way into a indoor mall without slowing down. The beast is only pushed back by firetruck hoses spraying into its ears and finally killed by collapsing a multistory building on top of it.

%%* PoliceAreUseless* PoliceAreUseless: Not only do they fail to investigate the very shady Penward even when he falsely admits several murders were from a tiger he owned, but when Penward's dinosaurs and panthers break out they are hopelessly outclassed until the army shows up.

** ''Scolosaurus'' (stock before the 90s) also appears as the chosen dangerous herbivore.

** So, to sum it up, 2 great stock, 3 secondary stock, 1 rarely-seen stock, and the rest are non-stock.

* AlwaysABiggerFish: Penward's private zoo has many big cats such as leopards, tigers, and a whole pride of lions. While dangerous, they're terrified of the dinosaurs on account of PrimalFear. During the breakout several lions go for Pascal, only for the ''Tarbosaurus'' to attack and kill the felines.



* ImmuneToBullets: Subverted with the larger dinosaurs. Gun calibers meant to kill humans either fail to penetrate their hide or just get lodged in their dense muscle. The ''Tarbosaurus'' tanks getting shot with multiple hunting rifles and a buckshot blast without issue. However when heavier implements are used, they do go down.

It just takes [[UpToEleven artillery pieces and anti-tank rounds]] in some cases.

%%* StormingTheCastle* StormingTheCastle: Pascal manages to sneak his way into Penward's estate but is soon captured and more focused on escape for himself and his girlfriend to cause damage. [[spoiler: It's Lady Jane who causes chaos when she shuts off the fencing to turn the dinosaurs loose.]]



* TyrannosaurusRex: Subverted. The only ones featured are a pair of hatchlings [[spoiler:which only appear in the end devouring Lady Jane]]. ''Tarbosaurus'' instead takes its place as the main threat.

* PrehistoricMonster: Despite being fairly progressive in dinosaur depictions, it is still very much guilty of this. All but one of the dinosaurs mercilessly hunt down humans and devour them long after their appetites should be sated. This is especially weird for creatures like ''Dilophosaurus'' and the plesiosaur, which would not be very well equipped to eat large, fast-moving prey like human beings. However in the case of the larger carnivores like the ''Deinonychus'' and ''Tarbosaurus'', this could be [[JustifiedTrope explained]] in that mammals would have been a common food source for them as babies and they were fed cattle at Penward's estate. Just as humans have an atavistic fear of dinosaurs, the dinosaurs would have an atavistic instinct to equate mammals with easy food.

* WouldHurtAChild: Penward plans to have Simon, the little boy that survived the third dinosaur attack, after his {{Mooks}} fail to do it themselves. [[spoiler:Fortunately he's distracted by more pressing matters before he can do so, as the dinos get loose, rendering the issue of the boy moot, and Penward forgets about him.]]

* WouldntHurtAChild: Unlike their boss, Penward's goons opt not to kill Simon, [[MinionWithAnFInEvil due to not liking the idea of killing a child]], reasoning no one would believe him.
