Despite the name of this trope, it can cover examples that are not technically dinosaurs. Other extinct reptiles, like pterosaurs, plesiosaurs, and dimetrodons would fall under this trope. And while it may be a stretch, since we don't have individual tropes for Everything is Better with Woolly Mammoths/Woolly Rhinos/Saber-tooth Cats/etc., these examples would get grouped here.

* 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".

* 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.
