* The Quetzalcoatlus from The Hunter Primal while reasonably accurate (they have Pycnofibers and a realistic skull shape) show a KidnappingBirdOfPrey like behaviour similar to the ones seen in ''VideoGame/PrimalCarnage'' and ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis'' in which they grab the player's character with their feet (which is anatomically impossible) to then letting you free causing to suffer a swift death [[NotTheFallThatKillsYou by showing you how gravity works]]. Ironically and in spite of the fact that Quetzalcoatlus was one of the most terrestrial species of Pterosaur, they are never seen on the ground.

* Pteranodons are enemies in the [[JungleJapes Amazon]] level in ''VideoGame/{{Strider}}'', and they look sort of allright outside of their leathery ponty wings. The fact they exist in the year 2048 is justified as they (like all other dinosaurs in the stage) were bio-engineered by the BigBad as one of his experiments.

* Terry in ''[[{{Banjo-Kazooie}} Banjo-Tooie]]'' definitely has teeth, and no end of mucus. For a male, he's awfully possessive about his eggs.

* ''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, both the title and characters refer to it as a dinosaur, but the human protagonists also call it a pterosaur.

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''.''Pteranodon''. For instance, it's depicted as loving to eat fish and shrimp; a ''Pteranodon'' would definitely enjoy that, but a ''Quetzalcoatlus'' would probably prefer to eat the two kids. Confusingly, both the title and characters refer to it as a dinosaur, but the human protagonists also call it a pterosaur.



* The Cuddlekins toy line (a line of plush toys by Wild Republic) includes a fairly accurate Pteranodon plush. It's got a furry body, no teeth, non-grasping feet, and its wings are supported by a single finger rather than being bat-like. Granted, it does have its share of flaws, but it's pretty impressive in its accuracy nonetheless.

* The "Pterodactyls" from the Pixar movie ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodDinosaur'' are quite the hodgepodge of stereotypes, although they receive some credit for averting [[StockDinosaurs Stock Pterosaurs]]. The main one, Thunderclap, looks like a ''Nyctosaurus'' but he's too big, has grasping talons, [[ToothyBird teeth]], wing claws (which wouldn't be a problem if it was any other type of pterosaur, but ''Nyctosaurus'' is the only known pterosaur that ''lacked'' any wing claws), is extremely scrawny and is a vicious predator as opposed to the fish-eater that ''Nyctosaurus'' was in real life. The other pterosaurs appear to be ''Caulkicephalus'', ''Ludodactylus'', and ''Guidraco'', and they share the same grasping talons and scrawny frames as Thunderclap as well as also being portrayed as predators instead of fish-eaters. On the other hand, all of them are portrayed as quadrupeds like real pterosaurs, but they walk on their knuckles instead of flat on their fingers. Fortunately, there is one tie-in coloring book which states [[ShownTheirWork they are not dinosaurs but flying reptiles]].
