* The first ''SilentHill'' featured two monsters, the Air Screamer and the Night Flutter. Those creatures were based on illustrations from one of Alexa's favourite book, ''TheLostWorld'' by Sir Creator/ArthurConanDoyle. This being ''SilentHill'', the flying horrors haven been twisted by the town, with the Air Screamer resembling a hideously emaciated pterodactyl/bat hybrid and the Night Flutter possessing a human-like body and a wriggling mass of worms for a head.

* Averted with flying colors in ''Anime/InazumaEleven GO: Chrono Stone'' with Torb's..."father", Tochan. He's a very, ''very'' accurate ''Quetzalcoatlus'', having the right proportions, size and anatomical features (including wings supported by one finger, pteroid bone, plantigrade/non-grasping feet, etc.). The only major inaccuracies seem to be his pointy wingtips, his apparent lack of fuzz (though that may just be the art style) and mild shrinkwrapping (his temporal fenestra is faintly visible). Also, he can somehow play soccer, but that's an {{Acceptable Break|s From Reality}}.

* [[https://vimeo.com/69161796 This Beeline advertisement]] has a [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome really cool-looking]] "pterodactyl" hoist a man into the air with its feet and carry him to its nest, wherein he ends up [[spoiler:watching dinosaur cartoons with the babies on his portable media player]]. While the adult pterosaur is naked and bird footed, she also [[ShownTheirWork has long, rounded wings with pteroid bones on them and concept art shows that the babies have visible pycnofibres and are quadrupeds]]. Interestingly, the pterosaurs themselves look vaguely similar to a generic ctenochasmatoid, the kind of pterosaur ''Pterodactylus'' was. ** It's also interesting to note that the pterosaurs are shown nesting on a snowy mountaintop. Meaning that they ''must'' be warm-blooded [[ShownTheirWork (as real pterosaurs were)]] because they wouldn't be able to survive the cold if they weren't.

* Portraying pterosaurs as [[AllFlyersAreBirds birds or the ancestors of birds]] -- while pterosaurs did fly, the actual ancestors of birds were true dinosaurs-more specifically, the maniraptor dinosaurs. Also, pterosaurs will often be shown to take good care of their eggs in the same way as birds, though more likely they simply laid their eggs and were done with that, like a modern lizard. There ''is'' a theory that larger pterosaurs would protect their eggs while said eggs were incubating and then dig them out of where they were buried, but even then it's believed that they'd leave the minute the eggs hatched.

* ''The Christmas Dinosaur''--a [[SoOkayItsAverage cute but forgettable]] ChristmasSpecial from 2004 focusing on two boys who accidentally hatch a baby ''Quetzalcoatlus'' on Christmas--has quite a bit of this; the title alone is already inaccurate, but more to the point is the fact that the pterosaur depicted is allegedly a baby ''Quetzalcoatlus'', despite having the proportions and diet of a ''Pteranodon''. Confusingly, the title refers to it as a dinosaur, but the human protagonists [[ShownTheirWork correctly call it a pterosaur instead]].

* Turu the trained (and toothed) ''Pteranodon'' on ''WesternAnimation/JonnyQuest''. (To be fair, the "teeth" are [[http://i139.photobucket.com/albums/q318/Monster_Master316/Jonny%20Quest/Turu.jpg presented as a serrated bill]] -- but that is hardly accurate, either.) Turu is depicted as gigantic, bipedal and scaly, and is shown grabbing Dr. Quest with his feet and carrying him away through the air. He is also unrealistically durable, surviving multiple hits from bazooka rounds.
