* The Franchise/StarWars ExpandedUniverse gives us the Ssi-Ruuk, a race of aliens who are essentially anthropomorphic ''Film/JurassicPark''-style Velociraptors. Naturally, they're bloodthirsty conquerors.

* ''{{Literature/Dinoverse}}'' has a deinonychus pack with an extremely structured social hierarchy and set of mores. They even punish members they think have withheld food from the group. One of them also learns how to make fire and [[AmplifiedAnimalAptitude many other things]] by watching a human do it. They're scaly, highly dextrous, fast, and can take huge prey.

* Averted in ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', when they're sent to the time of dinosaurs. Tobias played with toy dinosaurs as a kid, and when they find a pack of ''Deinonychus'' Rachel calls them "raptors," but Tobias corrects her -- he does however note they are still fast, dangerous, carnivorous dinosaurs they should really run from because they're actually ''worse'' than ''Velociraptor''. The book loses points for no feathers, however, on the count of being [[ScienceMarchesOn written in 1998]]. Plus, ''Deinonychus'' is shown living at the end of the Cretaceous period alongside ''TyrannosaurusRex'', in spite of being an early Cretaceous dinosaur (though this is lampshaded by Tobias at the end of the book).

** ''WesternAnimation/IceAge5CollisionCourse'' has a family of feathered dromaeosaurids serve as antagonists. They are of unspecified species, referred to as "Dino-birds" in official merchandise, although fans and TheOtherWiki believe they are ''Dakotaraptor''. To their credit they at least have wings, only problem is they're able to ''fly'' with them (something ''Dakotaraptor'' almost certainly couldn't do as an adult in RealLife).

* ''Anime/Cyborg009'' has one of the earliest examples of this trope by having a chapter involving a living ''Deinonychus'' in the modern era [[spoiler:which turns out to be a robot.]]

* ''VideoGame/DinosaurKing'' had feathered ''Velociraptor'' (without wings or a tail fan, though), ''Deinonychus'' with only a crest and thin coating of fuzz, and a scaly ''Utahraptor''. It also had a deinonychosaurian ''Megaraptor'', [[ScienceMarchesOn though this was disputed in 2003]].
** The Japanese website has a ''Troodon'' with feather coating (but no wings or a tail fan). On the other hand, the ''Archaeopteryx'' looks pretty good (it even has [[ShowingTheirWork raptor-like footclaws]]), although the coloring is [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife off]].

* DinosaurHour actually used ''Velociraptor'' in a chapter about feathered dinosaurs, which was about 2 ''Protoceratops'' discussing about the appearance of a "feathered ''Velociraptor''". They sketch a ''Velociraptor'' and try to add plumage to it, and it ends up looking so ridiculous that they find it amusing. The ''Velociraptor'' is later revealed to have... rather interesting feathering: [[spoiler: it looked like it stuffed its head and torso into 2 giant puffballs, making it look like a cartoonish duckling.]]
** Unfortunately, its ''Troodon'', ''Deinonychus'', and ''Utahraptor'' lack feathers. ''Dromaeosaurus'' is scantily feathered.

ScienceMarchesOn has further complicated things. At the time Creator/MichaelCrichton wrote ''Jurassic Park'', subfamily Velociraptorinae was classified as a large collection of species resembling its namesake member, which included ''Deinonychus''. Thus this species ''was'' at the time considered to technically be a ''Velociraptor'''ine,''' '' [[note]]Including in reference books such as Gregory Paul's ''Predatory Dinosaurs of the World'', which was a major reference source for Michael Crichton while writing ''Jurassic Park,''[[/note]] and the RuleOfCool dictated Crichton use the name that could be shortened to [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast "raptor"]].

** There's a reasonable fan theory that Michael Crichton may have based or confused the velociraptors in Jurassic Park with ''Achillobator'', which were the size of Jurassic Park raptors and also from Mongolia...despite the fact ''Achillobator'' was discovered in 1999 and therefore unknown when Crichton wrote the novel.
