* In the PC88 version of ''VideoGame/DragonSlayer'', one of the enemies sort of looks like a Tyrannosaurus, and apparently is supposed to be one. Oddly enough, it's the second weakest enemy.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' features many dinosaurs, some of which are inspired by ''T. rex''; series staple Yoshi is a cutesy caricature of one, and is a sapient egg-laying frugivore rather than a carnivore. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioOdyssey'' features a photorealistic (if not completely accurate) ''Franchise/JurassicPark''-style ''T. rex'' for Mario to [[GrandTheftMe Capture]] and wreak (benevolent) havoc with.

As noted in StockDinosaurs, ''T. rex'' is by far the most common dinosaur that appears in fiction. While it may not have been the biggest carnivorous dinosaur ever, it was probably among the most powerful and dangerous. It is certainly the most famous, mainly because it looks badass, and is also the ''only'' dinosaur popularly known for the whole scientific name (genus ''Tyrannosaurus'', species ''rex'') instead of just the first term. It helps the name was described by [[Webcomic/{{xkcd}} Randall Munroe]] [[https://xkcd.com/1056/ as]] [[AwesomeMcCoolName the most badass scientific name ever]] after ''Smilodon fatalis'' ([[PantheraAwesome Saber-toothed cat]]). The ''T. rex'' in general is often used as a RuleOfCool stereotype, and is a frequent target of the NinjaPirateZombieRobot trope. (Vampire ''T.
rex'', [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iAYf9YJSKXc anyone?]].)

* The dinosaur hunting simulator ''Carnivores'' features the T-Rex as the most dangerous game animal. As soon as it detects the player, it will sniff the air then start charging at a frightening speed. And it can be only killed via a shot in the eye; shooting it at any other spot will simply agitate it.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'': While many prior {{Mons}} were designed after, or shared aspects, with ''T. rex'' (especially Tyranitar, which is actually a NotZilla), ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' finally introduces an unambiguously ''Tyrannosaurus''-based Pokémon with Tyrunt and its evolution Tyrantrum, a [[DinosaursAreDragons dragon]]-rex revived from a fossil. As it evolves into Tyrantrum, it gains a [[AwesomeMomentOfCrowning crown]] and a BadassBeard, making it look like a stereotypical king. Prior to the upcoming Sun and Moon generation, Tyrunt and Tyrantrum were the only Pokemon with the ability [[ManBitesMan Strong Jaw, which powers up biting moves]], a clear reference to ''T. rex'' having some of the most powerful jaws of any terrestrial predator. [[ShownTheirWork They also have more feathers than half the depictions on this page combined,]] with Tyrantrum's in particular resembling a RegalRuff.

** Some other Pokémon have traits of ''T. rex'', even if not directly based on it like the Tyrunt line. Tyranitar is named after ''Tyrannosaurus'' in English, but is more of a ShoutOut to Franchise/{{Godzilla}}, who himself is based on dinosaurs. The Legendary Pokémon Groudon is an AnimalisticAbomination that resembles ''T. rex'' and similar dinosaurs.

If a work of fiction involves TimeTravel, the probability of a ''T. rex'' appearing is directly proportional to the number of episodes. If the characters time-travel once in a series, they will either end up in a hilariously inaccurate version of the late Cretaceous and meet a ''T. rex'' or a hilariously inaccurate version of the old west -- where they may meet a ''T. rex'' anyway. Likewise, a machine that merely pulls things out of the past, or other dimensions, seemingly has a 90% chance of grabbing a ''T. rex''. If the work of fiction supposedly ''doesn't'' involve TimeTravel, there's a good chance of the ''T. rex'' nevertheless [[AnachronismStew encountering critters from wildly different eras]], such as ''Stegosaurus'', which predates ''T. rex'' by a good 10 million years ''longer'' than ''T. rex'' predates us.
