* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'' has the dinosaurs being killed off because of the fall of [[OutsideContextVillain Lavos]]. The world isn't Earth, but it's [[AllPlanetsAreEarthlike similar enough]] that this event occurred 65 million years ago like the actual extinction of the dinosaurs. For contrast, the rulers of said dinosaurs were [[TheReptilians bipedal and sentient]]. Lavos happened to land on their capital, killing the majority of them, and the resulting Ice Age finished the job.

Why, none other than the [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/UsefulNotes/Dinosaurs#Extinctionn 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.

* Due to each season largely being in its own continuity, ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' has had no less than ''five'' possible fates for the dinosaurs. One wonders what happened to them in the universe where the team ups take place...

* In ''SamuraiJack'', Aku falls to Earth in the form of a meteorite. Guess who happens to be in the blast radius when Aku hits.
* An example very similar to ''SamuraiJack'' is with [[spoiler: The Lich]] from ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', as it's strongly implied that [[spoiler: his essence arrived from a possessed comet millions of years ago and well...]]

* In Creator/AAPessimal's ''Literature/GoodOmens'' fic ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5304252/3/I-shall-endure-to-the-end I Shall Endure...]], the dinosaurs died out as a result of the Great Flood due to prioritization on Noah, Crowley and Aziraphale's parts--there was just no way to fit a breeding pair of brontosauruses on the Ark, and the tyrannosaurs would have eaten out all the other animals by the time the trip was over, so they had to be left out.

* 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.
