** In the second pair, Will names a variety of raptors things like Big Guy, Buddy, Binky, and Junior (later he renames it Hook). He then calls a Tenotosaurus "Tink". Zane calls his body's little brother "Runt". Patience names the first Acrocanthosaurus she meets Number 47, the number of her personal enemy, calls the chivalrous one who likes her first Green Knight, and later GK, and when she meets her body's parents she calls them [[TheBradyBunch Mom and Pop Brady]]. Mr. London names his little posse of hypsilophodon friends Leo (after LeonardoDaVinci), Albert (after UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein), Carl (after Creator/CarlSagan), and Hal (after [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey HAL-9000]]).

Added DiffLines:

* DumbDinos: Averted - the non-transformed dinosaurs the protagonists encounter are often friendly, intelligent, and helpful.

* TheNicknamer: Pretty much every character meets at least one native that they subsequently name. In the first pair, Mike calls his rival T. Rex [[Literature/SherlockHolmes Moriarty]]. Janine calls an Elasmosaurus Nessie, a 'slow' Quetzalcoatlus Bobo, a Triceratops Mc Gurk, and her semi-boyfriend quetzalcoatlus [[NorseMythology Loki the Trickster]]. In her cameo in a later book, she calls skater boy Aaron "Slick" after he offends the school bully, and refers to Mr. London as Mr. L. Canadayce calls her leptoceraptopsian admirers things like Han and Bluto. Bertram calls the ankylosaur who falls in love with him Beanie - "because she's brown and round. Like a bean."

* SpoiledSweet: Claire. However, she hates the constant coddling, and when in the body of a forty-five foot predator claims to be "Holly" and much tougher.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: Aside from anything bipedal having useable hands and human-style shoulder flexibility, it's generally averted. Lots of things are dated ''now'', but were believed at the time. It does get brought up in the final set, though, in which the MIND Machine's gone berzerk and we have kids inhabiting dinosaurs from many eras in one place and time.

** Alternate universes may be involved in the second set of books. It's basically stated that [[spoiler: Hook]] is unusually smart, and saving him is tied to the [[TitleDrop Dinoverse]] which has peaceful highly-evolved dinosaurs in the present day.



* [[LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards Linear Dinosaurs, Quadratic Pterosaur]]: In any given book it doesn't take long for kids in dinosaur bodies to get the hang of it and become as good at any given task as others of the species. They're also just about universally strong and sturdy. Janine in a Quetzalcoatlus body is substantially less sturdy and takes a long time and pronounced effort to learn to fly - but flight is a very intensely useful ability. Flying, Janine could find lost party members, scout out areas for resources and threats, retrieve items from far away, and escape hazards herself. After she learns a fair amount of the book has her absent or unable to fly, for one reason or another. In all the later books, no one else is put into a body that flies.

They're also just about universally strong and sturdy. Janine in a Quetzalcoatlus body is substantially less sturdy and takes a long time and pronounced effort to learn to fly - but flight is a very intensely useful ability. Flying, Janine could solve nearly every problem the group faces - she could find lost party members, scout out areas for resources and threats, retrieve items from far away, and escape hazards herself. After she learns a fair amount to fly most of the rest of the book has her absent or unable to fly, for one reason or another. In all the later books, no one else is put into a body that flies.



* SeashellBra: Despite not having anything to cover, Candayce doesn't feel comfortable going naked. She tries sticking leaves on with sap -- they fall off. She ends up getting the quetzalcoatl to make a top-and-bottom out of seashells with holes poked in them and strung together by vines; these last a little longer.
