* TakeThat: Remember in ''Film/JurassicParkIII'' how a ''Spinosaurus'' fought and killed a ''Tyrannosaurus rex''? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv0wjS3nvso Not so lucky this time round]]...
** The method of fighting is also more TakeThat: The ''Spinosaurus'' tried biting off the ''Tyrannosaurus rex'''s neck, like it did in the movie... The ''T. rex'' pretty much [[NoSell shrugs it off]]. Then the ''T. rex'' proceeds to use the same method the ''Spinosaurus'' used in the movie, bite in the neck... to kill the ''Spinosaurus''.

*** ''Oviraptor'' is an alternate "predator" dinosaur with the same abilities as the ''Novaraptor''. It's perfectly anatomically correct, but the real ''Oviraptor'' probably wasn't quite so fast of a runner, and certainly not as deadly.

*** ''Cryolophosaurus'' has the same [[HandWave Hand Waved]] venom spit, but is also fairly slimmer than the real animal, with a narrower head.

*** Ultimately, while the ''Pteranodon'' isn't very accurate, the ''Tupandactylus'' is almost perfectly spot on, given that the body and wing proportions of the movel suit tapejarid pterosaurs very well. It also trades in picking up enemies for the ability to knock players off heights. The only noteworthy issues are the incorrectly folding wings which has been improved slightly by time of the sequel.
** RaptorAttack: The developers have invented a fictional species called ''Novaraptor'' ([[MeaningfulName "New thief"]]), created in-universe through genetic engineering. They were still featherless and had anatomically impossible hands, but the developers fixed the hands after the community spoke out, and PreOrderBonus costume is [[http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/334312_518004178211051_426048471_o.jpg accurately feathered]]. ''Tyrannosaurus'', ''Spinosaurus'', and ''Dilophosaurus'' got their hands fixed as well, and this is passed on to the other theropods. Additionally, later skins on both the ''Novaraptor'' and ''Oviraptor'' very frequently have full feathers.

to:

* FragileSpeedster: The ''Raptor''.''Novaraptor''. The ''Oviraptor'' is even faster than the ''Novaraptor'', but also frailer.



* MechanicallyUnusualFighter: The ''Oviraptor'' is this compared to its ''Novaraptor'' counterpart. It's faster, weaker and trades in the ''Novaraptor's'' "feeding frenzy" roar ability for the ability to track enemies via pheromones.



** The ''Spinosaurus'' even more so - it's incredibly durable and does very high damage, but is dead slow. The ''Acrocanthosaurus'', on the other hand, is a little bit faster than both of them, but it's not as deadly and takes less hits.



* PteroSoarer: The ''Pteranodon'' and ''Tupandactylus''. ''Pteranodon'' follows the trope more closely, being able to lift enemies up into the air and drop them, which [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology the real animal was not remotely capable of doing]]. The ''Tupandactylus'' tones it down a bit, matching more or less the appearance of the real animal and being able to knock players over instead of lift them up.

A prequel spin-off game, called ''Genesis'' has been announced.

to:

A sequel, ''Primal Carnage: Extinction'', was launched in late 2014 and left Early Access in mid-2015. The game is more or less an "upgrade" of the original game, with more features and game modes added. A prequel spin-off single-player game, called ''Genesis'' ''Genesis'', was announced a couple of years earlier, but has since been announced.put on hold, most likely to focus on developing ''Extinction''.



** PteroSoarer: On the one wing, the ''Pteranodon'' are naked, have pointed wingtips (although they're more rounded in the final model), grasping feet, are a bit misproportioned (more so in their prototype model), have wings that fold incorrectly (similar to the pterosaurs from the ''{{Walking with Dinosaurs}}'' series), and may be slightly too small, but on the other wing, they are quadrupedal and toothless, and vault from the ground using their wings like real pterosaurs. This is addressed by the developers in forum posts, which state that the ''Pteranodons'' had their pycnofibres removed for "cosmetic reasons", although the "Alpha ''Pteranodon''" skin has pycnofibres. Like the feathers on the raptors, there is also the issue that the early builds had trouble with complex textures so it took awhile to get anything but smooth skin finished.

The only noteworthy issues are the incorrectly folding wings which has been improved slightly by time of the sequel.

** The ''Cryolophosaurus'' is even more frail than the ''Dilophosaurus'', but is significantly more deadly, swapping blinding venom for an acidic, burning spit.



* LightningBruiser: The ''Carnotaurus'', only in a full charge though otherwise it's slower than a sloth walking his pet slug and weaker in attack than the carcass it heals from (those are obvious exaggerations but it is still the slowest walker in the game and does low non-charging damage).
