* The entire reason ''FanFic/MesozoicEffect'' exists. According to the [[WordOfGod author]] the idea of putting sentient dinosaurs into the MassEffect universe was just awesome not to write about, regardless of how [[MST3KMantra little sense it makes.]]

Added DiffLines:
* ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide'' used dinosaurs (together with cavemen) as a common subject. In fact, the scientific name for a stegosaur's tail (thagomizer) is derived from a comic where a caveman explains that it is derived from "the late Thag Simmons".

Generic "examples" are not allowed.
[[folder:Real Life]] * No museum, theme park, or children's book is complete without dinosaurs. ** Yup. Even museums devoted to fine art. They ''gotta'' have a dinosaur. * There are actual realistic dinosaur suits you can find online. However, they are deathly expensive if you want to get one of your very own. ** You know why paleontology is more popular among kids than, say, epidemiology. Yup. it's the dinosaurs. Every kid has a dinosaur phase. Of course if they pursue their interest at an academic level, they'll find out it's hard work. That's not to say that JurassicPark wasn't hard work too. [[/folder]]

Note that just because a series [[JustifiedTrope provides a reason]] for there to be dinosaurs does not mean it isn't an example of this trope. Sure, a dinosaur altmode might very well be a good idea for a Transformer, but the real reason for a dinosaur form is to [[MerchandiseDriven appeal to young boys]].

* ''Ride/JurassicParkRiverAdventure'' at [[Ride/UniversalStudios Islands of Adventure]], is of course based off the franchise Jurassic Park. Besides the ride there is a whole island based around the franchise as well. The ride by it self is there in the other various Universal parks as well. * The primeval sequence in ''Ride/BackToTheFutureTheRide'' features an up and close encounter with a massive T-Rex.

* ''Ellen's Energy Adventure'' at [[DisneyThemeParks EPCOT]], which is about power sources, contains an extended sequence involving dinosaurs. This in itself was based on the Primevil World diorama at the Disneyland Railroad.
