The whole game is rife with this, as even the parts that take place on the outside of ships sound the same as the parts that take place in areas with atmosphere.

* {{Combos}} - String together kill chains to be awarded bonus points, from the second game onwards.

* ConvectionSchmonvection - Dylan takes a trip through the center of an active volcano without so much as getting heatstroke.
* CriticalHit - Interrupting an attack scores you one of these.
* DeadlyGas - There's a sequence where you have to pass through a few areas populated by fungi emitting poisonous spores. The first two are dealt with by incinerating the fungi [[KillItWithFire using a flamethrower]]. The last one can only be navigated by obtaining a gas mask.
* DeathIsCheap - The Resuscitation Packs [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin resuscitates you]] if you die.
* DifficultyLevels - More conspicuous than the previous game's.
* [[spoiler:DownerEnding]] - You spend Dino Stalker trying to fix it.
* EscortMission - Dylan has to protect [[spoiler:Paula]] from being killed by dinosaurs while they make their way to [[spoiler:the complex from the future.]]
* EyeScream - In the opening cutscene, David fires a missile at the attacking ''T. rex'', hitting it in the eye. However, instead of killing it (as it would in real life), this just pisses it off even more.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater - Edward City and the dinosaurs.

* GiantFlyer - The Pteranodons make a comeback.
* GuideDangIt - Unless you're fanatically checking out every nook and cranny in every room, you probably won't find all of the Dino Files without a guide.

* SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness - SortingAlgorithmOfWeaponEffectiveness: Certain weapons become available after progressing to a certain point in the game, with each weapon being more powerful than the previous weapons.
* SpyCatsuit - SpyCatsuit: Regina wears one almost identical to the one she wore in the first game. Dylan's outfit, too.
* StandardStatusEffects - StandardStatusEffects: Like its predecessor, some attacks can leave Dylan and Regina bleeding which gradually drains health. Using a [[StatusBuff Hemostat]] will fix that problem.



* SuperPersistentPredator - The ''T. rex'' again. At one point, Regina quips "You again? [[LampshadeHanging Persistent thing, aren't you?]]"
* TimedMission - Bring down the Giganatosaurus and deactivate the missile in 10 minutes or you're toast. That said, [[TakingYouWithMe at least you'd be taking the giant bastard with you.]]
* TimeTravel - Naturally. Not only does Edward City have an overload which causes it to warp to another point in time, but the ship that Regina and TRAT are on has a "Timegate", a device that utilizes Third Energy to travel in time. [[spoiler: To make no mention of what Future!Dylan's group tries to do.]]
* TyrannosaurusRex - For once not the BigBad.
* UnderwaterRuins - After reaching Edward City proper, Regina has to don a diving suit and go down into an underwater reactor cooling system, complete with the suit-clad bodies of the unfortunate workers and the Mosasaurs who killed them.
* TheWorfEffect - The Giganotosaurus introduces himself by crashing through a wall, grabbing the ''T. rex'' in its jaws, holding it in the air, throwing it against a wall and then eating it.

* CopyProtection: If you try to play this game on a modded PS1, you are likely to get a [[JumpScare scare]] as the screen suddenly quick-switches to a prohibited sign with Japanese text that amounts to, "Software has been terminated. Console may have been modified."

* InfinityPlusOneSword - Dylan can buy a weapon that fires plasma balls directly in front of him [[ForMassiveDamage that deals silly amounts of damage]] and automatically [[CounterAttack Counters]] any dinosaurs pouncing at you, netting you easy bonus points.

** Subverted by Gail, who is very cold and pragmatic with regards to his teammates' lives but won't hesitate to help them out so long as he's able to, and totally averted by Dylan in the sequel, who's a straight-up good guy.

'''''Dino Crisis''''' is a SurvivalHorror game series by Creator/{{Capcom}}, the first of which came out in 1999. The game had a lot of similarities to the company's [[Franchise/ResidentEvil other survival horror]] series, and has often been compared to it (curiously, the Umbrella Corporation logo [[FreezeFrameBonus can be found on crates at specific locations in the first game]], with more {{Easter Egg}}s appearing in ''Dino Stalker'' [[note]]in Stage 5, both the "Woman Drawing Water" statue from [[VideoGame/ResidentEvil1 the Spencer Mansion's exhibition room]] and a ruined Umbrella building [[FreezeFrameBonus can be seen during your drive through the city]][[/note]]), even though Capcom originally insisted it was a new genre they called "panic horror." Mainly because, as the name suggests, [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs you fight dinosaurs]]. The series has not seen a new installment since ''Dino Crisis 3'' in 2003, however, the main character of the original two games, Regina, does appear in the 2005 [[VideoGame/CapcomVsWhatever crossover game]] ''VideoGame/NamcoXCapcom'' and as a costume in the DLC for 2013's ''VideoGame/DeadRising3'', and the "Borginian Republic" the first game takes place in is reused in various parts of the ''VisualNovel/AceAttorney'' franchise ([[WildMassGuessing make of that what you will]]).
