''Velociraptor'', while still believed to be an agile and clever predator in its own right, was actually a bird-of-prey-like solo hunter about the size of a turkey. The actual inspiration for the creatures found in the book and film are its larger, possibly pack-hunting, cousins ''Deinonychus''. Later books and films also pull in elements of the ''Utahraptor'', TheBigGuy of the family which actually exceeds the size and build of the creatures in the film.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Exalted}}'': Claw striders are scaly, featherless raptors as tall as a man and with curved toe-claws claws capable of slashing open the throat of a horse with one swing. They are ferocious pack hunters, and can bring down prey as large as elephants and tyrant lizards by running them into exhaustion before ganging up on them.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series has Clannfear, a form of [[OurDemonsAreDifferent lesser Daedra]] with animalistic intelligence and the general appearance of [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs raptors]] with frills and beaks. While deadly on their own, they prefer to attack in packs and can bring down larger/more powerful prey when they do.

* In ''Literature/{{Dinotopia}}'', it is almost a given that some deinonychosaurs crop up from time to time, due to the [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Loads And Loads Of Dinosaurs]] in this work. Two examples are Malik the ''Stenonychosaurus'' (today believed to be a synonym of ''Troodon'') and Enit the ''Deinonychus'', who both work in Waterfall City as the Time-Keeper and the Chief Librarian respectively. Both of these are victims of ScienceMarchesOn and lack feathers, which probably explains why they don't show up in the fourth book (which is ''filled'' with feathered depictions of deinonychosaurs and other dinosaurs, including [[spoiler:Emperor Hugo Khan the ''Microraptor'']]).

* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Dinosaurs On A Spaceship" features "Raptors" that look more like [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} baby Zillas]] than they do actual Velociraptors. In fact, they actually look very much like the raptors from ''Primeval''.
** In fact, they ''are'' the raptors from ''Primeval'' - the animation model was reused. (Potential CrossOver, anyone?)

* The ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/8085799/1/Pinkassic-Park Pinkassic Park]]'' has ''Deinonychus'' that attack the main characters after being accidentally freed from their pens, only to be knocked out after attacking Pinkie Pie's pony decoys stuffed with sleeping gas. They are [[ShowingTheirWork explicitly stated to have bird-like feathers]], and WordOfGod said they were used because the ''Velociraptor'' from ''JurassicPark'' were actually based on ''Deinonychus'', [[ShowingTheirWork which is quite true]].

** The game app ''Ice Age Village'' has a scaly, JurassicPark-styled ''Velociraptor''. ''Pyroraptor'' has feathers, however.

* The two villains of ''WesternAnimation/KungFuDinoPosse'', Skor and Skrap, are called "raptors", but they don't look like real dinosaurs in any way. They don't have feathers and they have frills like the ''Dilophosaurus'' in ''JurassicPark'' and head quills similar to the ''Velociraptor'' from the third ''Jurassic Park'' film.

** There's a reasonable fan theory that the velociraptors in Jurassic Park are ''Achillobators'', which were the size of Jurassic Park raptors and also from Mongolia.

** There's a reasonable fan theory that the velociraptors in Jurassic Park are ''Achillobators'', which were the size of Jurassic Park raptors and also from Mongolia. Since ''Achillobator'' was not named when the book was written, and was instead considered a large specimen of ''Velociraptor'', this is plausible, but impossible to confirm.

* 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.
