* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: Every dinosaur has something wrong with it, or has been made unnaturally bullet-resistant for RuleOfScary. Apart from RaptorAttack and PteroSoarer, there are also the Therizinosaurs. They look barely like the real ones; they have crested heads, featherless bodies, and a less upright stance, with none of the pot bellies you would expect to see on real Therizinosaurs. They eat meat, crush their victims underfoot, and are MadeOfIron. Combines ScienceMarchesOn and RuleOfScary.

Dino Crisis was popular enough to earn a sequel, ''Dino Crisis 2'', in 2000. The sequel made the gameplay much more action oriented, but kept Regina as a main character. After that, the game received a Light Gun installment in 2002 called ''Dino Stalker''. Capcom released ''Dino Crisis 3'' in 2003 on the original Xbox, with a completely new cast and a space setting. Unfortunately, terrible camera controls, fan backlash, and the small audience for the game on the Xbox killed the franchise.

''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]]).

* TheReveal: A rather chilling one, once the action moves to the [[BellyOfTheWhale lowest underground]].

* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: [[AvertedTrope Averted]] in this case considering that its lackluster reception (and the fact that the first two games are pretty old, graphics-wise) led to {{Capcom}} deciding to [[FranchiseKiller leave the franchise by the wayside.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: It's stated on terminals that the Australis is a [[FlawedPrototype failed attempt]] at making a creature that can survive in a vacuum but the [[spoiler:[[FinalBoss Cebalrai]] is the successful product as the fight takes place on the [[OutsideRide outside]] of a spaceship.]]


Added DiffLines:

* EyelessFace Every dinosaur mutant (with the exception of the [[TyrannosaurusRex Australis]]) is completely devoid of eyes.
* FantasticRacism: Patrick gets a moment of this when he discovers the [[spoiler:[[HalfHumanHybrid dinosaur infused embryos]], he says the dino DNA makes the monsters no matter how human they look and doesn't even bat an eye when they are destroyed.]]


Added DiffLines:

* MakingASplash: The Miaplacidus (a mutant Spinosaurus) can spit high-pressure water as a (very damaging) long ranged attack.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Metamorphosis}}: Terminals reveal the colossal, [[MultipleHeadCase multi-headed]], [[BreathWeapon lightning spewing]] Cebalrai is actually the adult form of the (relatively) small and snake-like [[GoddamnedBats Rigel]].


Added DiffLines:

* RecurringBoss: The Australis is of the more-than-one variety as you fight three different ones over the course of the game (you also encounter one at the beginning of the game [[BaitAndSwitchBoss but that one doesn't count]]).


Added DiffLines:

* ShockAndAwe: Several of the mutant dinosaur types (the [[RaptorAttack Algol]], the [[RecurringBoss Australis]] and the [[MultipleHeadCase Cebalrai]]) use electricity as a ranged weapon.


Added DiffLines:

* ThemeNaming: All the dinosaur mutants are named after stars and constellations.

* AmericanKirbyIsHardcore: Regina's face was made to look somewhat tougher and less {{Animesque}} in the Western version.

* InformedSpecies: The ''Therizinosaurus'' barely resembles the real animal and is carnivorous. Plus, the ''Velociraptor'' look more like oversized ''Deinonychus''.



** Oh and don't forget the presence of ''Inostrancevia'', a therapsid from the late Permian, which predates ''Tyrannosaurus'' by almost 200 million years! Not to mention it is portrayed with reptilian scales and armor, despite being a ''mammal-ancestor''.
