* TheDinosaursHadItComing: Well, when five of them are super powerful warring deities, can't blame their extinction.

** The toyline by Playmates, being aimed at kids, toned down or outright moved many of the nastier aspects of the gods and even lumped then into the heroic "Virtuous Beasts" against the evil "Destructive Dinos" when in the game its pretty much BlackAndGreyMorality at best. Chief among these is the toyline bios playing up Talon's protectiveness towards his raptor clan and ignoring his treatment of humans, and making no mention of Sauron constantly eating his own followers.

* AntiHero: The four Virtuous Beasts. Note that the separating of the dino gods into the "Virtuous Beasts" and "Destructive Dinos" was created purely for the toyline and novel and has no bearing to the video game storyline, which explains both Sauron's and Talon's douchebaggery. It should also be noted that these are essentially {{Kaiju}}. The "heroic" ones (save for Blizzard, who is actually interested in teaching his followers... in the novel) are more concerned with protecting their territory and facing off against earth-destroying evils than they are with something that is little more than food to them.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: The special moves are performed by holding down the buttons and then inputting the directions, instead of the other way around like in most other fighters. You can still perform them the normal way in some versions of the game, but seeing that all of them require you to hit at least 2 attack buttons at the same time, it's not really worth the trouble. Try doing this with the fighters in {{MUGEN}}, where you now need to input the commands at the same time, StreetFighter-style.

* AnimalisticAbomination: The gods themselves resemble dinosaurs and prehistoric beasts, but are powerful beings of unmeasurable power that were even responsible for the extinction of the actual dinosaurs.

This FightingGame is a little unusual in that there's no boss character to smack around; instead, there's a pseudo-BossRush at the end where you have to fight all seven characters again, one after the other. There was a planned upgrade that would've given the game a boss to defeat to beat the game but that went unreleased by Atari Games. There was also a planned sequel, simply called ''Primal Rage II'', that too went unreleased due to being [[FollowTheLeader too many]] {{Fighting Game}}s at the time. However, a single prototype of it has been obtained by the Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, Illinois. ''(Sadly, this means that this is the only place in the world where you can actually play the game.)''

]] Eventually, in 2017, a special build of MAME was made just to play this game.

* VoluntaryShapeshifting: The major gameplay advancement in ''Primal Rage II'' would have been the ability to channel the power of the gods as their avatars, temporarily transforming them into their respective gods. Likewise, the gods themselves were hidden fighters and could transform back into their avatars when you played as them.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: [[EldritchAbomination Ancient, horrible deities]] sleeping finally awaken and wreak havoc upon the world and then start slapping the shit out of each other. It's like the CthulhuMythos meets Franchise/JurassicPark meets MortalKombat.
