* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' "The Once and Future Thing". Chronos sends Chucko back to time of the dinosaurs for betraying him. Chucko draws his weapons and confidently states he'll be "running this dump in a few years" and we have just enough time to think he killed the dinosaurs...until he sees the asteroid that ''actually'' killed coming right at him.
-->'''Chronos:''' Do you know what killed the dinosaurs?
-->'''Bonk:''' Uh, no sir?
-->'''Chronos:''' Well ''Chucko'' does.

* According to ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11191235/88/Harry-Potter-and-the-Prince-of-Slytherin Harry Potter and the Prince of Slytherin]]'', the dinosaurs were wiped out by a meteor summoned by [[spoiler:Magic itself to retroactively prevent the rise of the Naga, one of which would make their language inherently magical with [[ApocalypseHow devastating consequences]]. Magic then punished the responsible for it by trapping him forever in a cave, where he can only wait for visitors to grant them one wish, with the echoes of their language becoming Parseltongue (that Salazar Slytherin made hereditary for his descendants when he reached the Last Naga)]].

* In ''Webcomic/SandraAndWoo'', the dinosaurs were indeed destroyed by a meteor. [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/2016/03/03/0765-the-apprentice/ What summoned the meteor, on the other hand]]

* In one chapter of ''Manga/FrankenFran'', [[MadScientist Fran]] claims that the dinosaurs went extinct because they were too large and inefficient to survive, to try and justify her disbelief at how the MonsterOfTheWeek could even exist. [[YouFailBiologyForever She fails biology forever]] [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology and makes paleontologists cry]], but kudos to having a [[TyrannosaurusRex T.rex with protofeathers]].

* In ''Series/{{Dinosaurs}}'' the dinosaurs drove ''themselves'' to extinction when the construction of a wax fruit factory causes a chain reaction that leads to a new ice age that will kill off the dinosaurs. For those that want the chain: [[spoiler:the factory was built on the breeding grounds of the bunch beetles, which caused them to go extinct, which means the vines they feed on grow unchecked. Trying to use herbicide to kill them off causes all the other plants off as well, causing global warming. Trying to check that by creating clouds leads them to bomb volcanoes, which creates ash clouds that block out the sun, which causes a new ice age. And the worst part is that Richfield, who was behind most of the above, doesn't even care that he doomed the world because he's making an immense profit from it.]]

* ''FanFic/RiseOfTheGaleforces'' actually gives [[ShownTheirWork as close to the correct scientific explanation]] as the author - and his AuthorAvatar - is aware of, when he briefly interrupts the narrative to correct several other characters who thought that a heat wave killed off the dinosaurs.[[note]]While they weren't exactly wrong in a sense - the blast front from the Chixiclub meteor impact is thought to have packed the same energy as 100 teratonnes of TNT (420 ZJ), over a billion times the energy of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki - the original context referred to a heatwave produced by the sun. The food chain collapse that led to the extinction was because the dust from the impact ''blocked out'' the sun, causing most of the plant life to die out and take the food chain with it.[[/note]] Humorously, [[TheIncredibles Frozone]] later gets to make a jab at the infamous "Ice age" line from ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', as noted below.

* In ''ExtremeDinosaurs'', the cataclysm that caused the dinosaurs to go extinct was caused by [[BigBad Bad Rap]], a mutated raptor, using an alien WaveMotionGun in a fight. Since the weapon was conceived by aliens from a different dimension, it wasn't adapted to be used on Earth, and ended up causing the cataclysm instead of merely killing the protagonists like initially intended.

* In an extended cut of ''Anime/DragonBallZBattleOfGods'', Beerus claims that he went to Earth millions of years ago, and that he wiped out the dinosaurs [[DisproportionateRetribution because they were rude to him]]. This is reconfirmed in ''Anime/DragonBallSuper''. [[SeriesContinuityError This is ignoring]] the many times we saw the setting still had LivingDinosaurs (both regular and anthropomorphic).

* In ''Literature/{{Protector}}'', by LarryNiven, there's a delightful little throwaway line about the Protectors killing the dinosaurs and other megafauna.
