* PowerUpLetDown: The chance to "upgrade" to a mammal form is actually a downgrade if you are a bird. Since the bird gets to take the offensive power of the dinosaurs combined with great agility and the best mobility in the game. That's what you get for wanting to be a tiger when you could instead be an Eagle/Tyrannosaurus hybrid!

* DyingRace: A small group of Stegosaurus/Segosaurus survive the Ice Age, hidden away in a forest on North America in Chapter 5. All they ask is to be left in peace and let nature take its course. You ''are'' part of nature's course, so you can kill them if you want. Don't worry, they respawn when you come back in.

* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Naturally, dinosaurs play a crucial role in a game about Earth's history. [[spoiler: They appear even after the Dinosaur Age chapter.]]
** When you get a new body, you'll even find your previous fish form to be better than the base amphibian, and the same for each evolution afterwards.
*** Though oddly, using a green crystal to devolve back into a fish proves to be a significant power-down compared to just swimming as an evolved, later life-form type.

* ButThouMust: Making it worse, the game also likes to show you just how much damage you did when you do what Thou Must. The game makes clear that you're repeatedly committing ''genocide'' against multiple other species to clear the road for your own evolution. While it's shown to be necessary in many instances, or else an act of self-defense, evolution is still an extremely unforgiving mistress.
