* The MonsterOfTheWeek in ''[[Literature/{{Animorphs}} Megamorphs #2]]'' causes the extinction of the dinosaurs by redirecting a meteor earthward. To rephrase it, the dinosaurs were killed by a plain old meteor....FLUNG BY ALIENS! To wipe out OTHER aliens who wanted to settle on Earth and [[HistoricalInjoke plant broccoli]].

For extra craziness, the benign alien settlers had a plan to divert the meteor with a nuclear missile, but it was sabotaged... [[BeenThereShapedHistory by one of the heroes]], becasue, well, [[IDidWhatIHadToDo that extintion was necessary for the human race to emerge]].

* In the StarTrekTheLostEra novel ''The Buried Age'', the Permian extinction event is chosen instead - it was a consequence of an artificially-induced galaxy-wide disaster. The SufficientlyAdvancedAliens known as Manraloth accidentally caused the entire galactic population to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence, releasing terrible amounts of energy which irradiated planets. In the aftermath, the artificialy maintained habitats of the Manraloth degraded, destabilizing stars, among other dangerous side-effects. The galaxy was an irradiated hellhole until sapient life evolved again millions of years later.

* In ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'', [[HornyDevils Thomas Raith]] claims that [[PowerOfLove love killed the dinosaurs]]. Harry [[YouFailBiologyForever calls him out on it]]. Essentially, the tale talks about how the meteor did wipe out the big stuff, but the dinosaurs didn't regain their position because mammals could feel love and be devoted to their mates and offspring, making them more likely to survive. It should be noted this is a vampire folk tale, and should be taken with a grain of salt, especially given that some dinosaurs did have strong nesting instincts.

* There was an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' where Wilbur Cobb told the titular characters several ridiculous theories on how the dinosaurs died, including "they thought they were {{Superman}}, and jumped off the roof." As he's dragged off by museum security, he claims that ''he'' was the one who killed the dinosaurs.
* In a time travel-themed episode of ''IAmWeasel'', the dinosaurs [[NakedPeopleAreFunny laughed at I. R. Baboon's red butt]] so hard that they fell off the world (which was flat at that time period for some odd reason) and to their deaths. Weasel calls him out at first, but then realizes that dinosaurs are supposed to go extinct and instead takes this as a sign that [[YouAlreadyChangedThePast Baboon was destined to correct history]].

* Inverted in ''VideoGame/FossilFighters'', where it's revealed Dinosaurs [[spoiler:were actually alien prehistoric creatures introduced on Earth by the Dinaurian, an specie ascended from them, in an attempt to recreated their dangerously close to extinction species on Earth. The Dinosaurs' extinction foiled their plan, and they awoke too late to rectify it.]]

Why, none other than the [[UsefulNotes/Dinosaurs#Extinction extinction that wiped out the dinosaurs]]. Despite [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8550504.stm being confirmed with a huge degree of certainty and consensus]] to be some kind of asteroid impact, debating has made the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction ideal for the sheer number of theories as to why the dinosaurs died out, rivaling that of WhoShotJFK. What's one more [[EpilepticTree crazy theory]] going to hurt? Other works actually go along with this, saying that their factor caused the meteorite to fall to earth, or was the impactor itself.
