** Sharptooth himself IS this trope. Imagine a large, extremely vicious T-Rex that simply does not give up until he kills his target, no matter how many times said target escapes. Not to mention the fact that he is extremely feared by the main charaters (can you blame them?!)and they have to live in constant fear of him. The scene where the beast ambushes them while THEY WERE ASLEEP shows that he can attack ANYWHERE.

** You think he's bad in the movie? He's even worse in the novel. In the movie, he's mostly portrayed as an instinctive force of nature, but in the novel he's almost portrayed as a narcissistic serial killer who fancy himself above other dinosaurs. And the novel confirms he's deliberately hunting the children for no reason but for petty revenge, and during his hunt, he toys with them just to enjoy seeing their terror before he kills them. And when he finds the entrance to the Great Valley, the novel says that he growled and sniffed the air "in evil joy", which would hint that he really mostly kills other dinosaurs just ForTheEvulz, and the next thing he plans to do after he kills the childen would be going around doing a killing spree in the Great Valley...

** Also from "Stone of Cold Fire," a flashback shows that Pterano got into a disagreement with the other dinosaurs searching for the Great Valley and the herd split into two factions. Pterano led his to a secluded valley, which they thought for sure was the paradise that they were looking for. [[RaptorAttack And then the raptors show up.]] Pterano was the only survivor, and that's only because he can fly.

* For the second movie, ''The Great Valley Adventure'', there's the Mysterious Beyond scene where the group comes across Chomper's egg. Set during the night, the scene itself is a spooky landscape filled with many dangerous dinosaur roars heard in the background.

* The tar pits. Seeing all the innocent, rather young protagonists getting submerged in black gunk and nearly losing their lives is ''not'' a fun thing to watch at the age of 6 ''or'' in your adulthood. The 'tar monster' that the characters form to scare Cera is also pretty morbid in appearance, and definitely isn't pretty to look at, either. It looks like some sort of EldritchAbomination, honestly. Made worse by the horrifying noise made by the "tar monster".

** The crowning example of which might be Petrie's near death in the first film. His scream as Sharptooth pulls him down into the pond is downright disturbing.

** Note also that many scenes featuring Sharptooth were cut because the producers feared that they might actually cause ''psychological damage'' to children. So, scary as Sharptooth is in this film, what we get are the ''least'' frightening scenes they made with him.

** Makes The Sharptooth even more scary in hindsight- this entire herd was willing to go on a rampage to kill a baby, and yet Sharptooth didn't even flinch at the idea of killing one dinosaur after another. He wasn't afraid that they'd gather together in a herd and fight him, he was that powerful- or overconfident- that he feared none of that.
