** Ixalan is even worse as the local pterosaurs are typed as dinosaurs in the cards and even have feathers to boot. Dougal Dixon's quote on the matter fully applies here.

** Ixalan is even worse as the local pterosaurs are typed as dinosaurs in the cards cards, have eagle-like hindlimbs and even have feathers (and, in some cases, fully feathered wings) to boot.boot. Some consequently look more like wyverns or even ''birds'' than actual pterosaurs. Dougal Dixon's quote on the matter fully applies here.

* ''VideoGame/{{Rime}}'' features a bird-creature whose wing structure is reminiscent of pterosaurs, namely having a membrane supported by an elongated finger.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Visionaries}}'', Cravex's Totem animal is the Phylot, a Prysmosian creature similar to a pterosaur. It is said to be "the only airborne scavenger on Prysmos".

* While the Axtell Expressions puppet [[http://www.axtell.com/terryd.html "Terry Dactyl"]] is most likely not ''supposed'' to be accurate, the company was at least willing to add fur to the puppet, even pointing out that they did it for the sake of accuracy.

* ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ludodactylus Ludodactylus,]]'' which was one of the first crested ''and'' toothed pterosaurs to be discovered, got its name to reference this trope (its name means "Toy Finger"). The name was basically a RealLife lampshading of the fact that, at the time, such a combination was considered almost paradoxical outside fictionland.

* Dinosaur-themed episodes of ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales1987'' features the stereotypical "Pterodactyl" (bat-winged, ''Pteranodon''-like crest alongside teeth and ''Rhamphorhynchus''-like tail, eagle-footed, etc.).

* Justified with Adam Squall/Terrordactyl, the protagonist in ''Fanfic/RiseOfTheGaleforces''. His pterosaur form is based on a ''Pteranodon'' with a misshapen, toothy beak, a CartoonyTail [[DinosaursAreDragons looking rather like a dragon's,]] prehensile feet, and bat-like wings; this is {{handwaved}} by the fact that the local genetics companies meddled with his DNA, as with the ''JurassicPark'' examples below which also appear in several chapters. Thankfully, he has ptero-fuzz, walks on all fours, has wing membranes supported by only one finger, and even uses the quadrupedal launch. Notably, [[BerserkButton he dislikes being called a dinosaur]], but he's cool with being called a pterodactyl, probably because he believes it refers to the subfamily rather than the specific genus.
** The ''Ornithocheirus'' that show up in later chapters behave a lot like the ''Cearadactylus'' in the first ''JurassicPark'' novel, being unusually aggressive and strong. At least they pick things up with their beaks instead of their feet like the Pteranodons do.

** Then again, it has been said in the canon a million times that the many animals that appeared in the JurassicPark films are just man-made abominations that barely resemble their RealLife counterparts.

* The ''JurassicPark'' toyline has had pterosaurs (mostly ''Pteranodons'', but there's a ''Quetzalcoatlus'' and a ''Tapejara'' as well) since before they appeared in the movies. They have their wings correctly supported by a single finger, but all have grasping feet and their wings are connected to the hips instead of legs, and in some toys not connected to the body at all (though this is most likely for the sake of articulation). At least all ''Pteranodon'' toys, even the ones based on ''Film/JurassicParkIII'', are properly toothless.

** The {{Defictionaliz|ation}}ed Journal 3 subverts this by correctly identifying it as a pterosaur.
