* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: In ''Turok 2'', once you're accomplished the objectives of the Primagen's Lightship and retrieved the level's Primagen Key, both the exit portal AND the entry portal lead to the same place: the Mother boss fight.

* LostForever: A few to name, minus cheat codes:
** ''Turok: Dinosaur Hunter''
*** On Stage 3: Ancient City, after defeating the Longhunter boss fight, if you went straight for the final Level Five Key before getting the Pulse Rifle, you will not be able to go back to get it. Good luck not using the weapon as the Pulse Rifle is more practical to use than the energy-consuming Alien Weapon or the slow-to-fire Shockwave, in addition of much more Energy Cell drops.
*** Averted if you can endure not having the Pulse Rifle at the end of the game. Before fighting [[FinalBoss The Campaigner]], you collect all the weapons, including the Pulse Rifle. Unfortunately, at this point of the game, there are far more better weapons to use to deal with the Campaigner (if you were able to assemble the Chronoscepter, that's the weapon of choice for him). This is also averted in the Night Dive update at least; a few more Pulse Rifles are hidden in secret areas between The Longhunter and The Campaigner (they are very few and far between, though).
*** Once you enter Level 8: The Final Confrontation, you cannot backtrack through past levels. If you forget to collect any Chronoscepter pieces in any of the other levels, you won't be able to use it. Inside this level, there will be trap doors that will send you further into the stage but will not allow you to return to earlier parts of the level. The first one has a warp to four water tanks with weapons seen just a few minutes earlier, and missing the jump to the warp will leave you with no way to reach it.

The third canonical entry to the franchise was ''Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion'' (2000), which took a more story oriented path than the previous games, and more-or-less picked up where ''Seeds of Evil'' left off. TheHero of the previous game dies, leaving his two remaining family members - younger brother [[MouthyKid Joseph]] and older sister [[DarkActionGirl Danielle]] - to carry on the family tradition of blowing up dinosaurs with [[{{BFG}} big guns]]... And to also stop the abomination known as Oblivion from ''[[OmnicidalManiac devouring all life in the universe]]''. The game was sadly mired by programming errors and annoying bugs, as well as poor voice acting. A common fan criticism is that it didn't have the ''[[InNameOnly feel]]'' of a ''Turok'' game.

The final game to appear as part of the original storyline was ''Turok: Evolution'' (2002), a prequel game revolving around the early exploits of the first game's protagonist, Tal'Set, as he battles the tyrannical Slegs (a race of Snake/Lizard/Dinosaur people) and their commander, a genetically-engineered T-Rex named Tyrannus. Unfortunately, it released to mixed reviews with the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 version in particular being singled out for framerate issues and poor graphics. Creator/{{Acclaim}} [[CreatorKiller went bankrupt]] shortly after the release of this and the disastrous ''[[RatedMForMoney BMX]] [[HotterAndSexier XXX]]''.

The first Turok video game, titled ''Turok: Dinosaur Hunter'', was released in 1997 for the UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo 64}} console. It followed Tal'Set Fireseed, the eldest male in his family chosen to become Turok: The protector of the boundary between this dimension and the others, a series of parallel universes held together by "The Lost Lands", a world where "Time Has No Meaning". In other words, things like robots, cyborgs and aliens from the distant future, Demons from the darkest pits of Hell, and Dinosaurs from primeval jungles ran rampant, and where various people from different dimensions were at war for its control. The job of the current Turok was to keep balance in this world and close the portals to the other dimensions that were bound the The Lost Lands (this was also a good excuse to give a Native American warrior things like Nuclear Fission Cannons and Radioactive {{Death Ray}}s).

* CrystalSpiresAndTogas: What ''Galyanna'' is implied to be.
** Also a little present in the second game. The city of Aidia and the city on the River of Souls are both at least at early-modern levels, yet architecturally and stylistically they resemble AncientRome, right down to their soldiers wearing legionary armor and skirts.
