** Also, Woolly mammoths, saber-toothed cats, and giant sloths are thrown into the mix. These were collected from the Ice Age and brought back via time travel, so at least were not intended to be contemporaries of the reptilian creatures. However, the lineup also featured an entelodont (referred to as "killer warthog"), which was already extinct before the Quaternary period let alone the Ice Age.

** The above mentioned ''Brontosaurus'' was not the only dinosaur depicted [[AnimalsNotToScale out of scale]]. For example, the ''Deinonychus'' was made larger and bulkier than the real one (who could hardly have carried a human on its back) but, [[HilariousInHindsight amusingly]], about the same size as the much-later-discovered ''Utahraptor''. ''Kentrosaurus'' is also too big, about the same size as ''Stegosaurus'' instead of half as large. Not to mention ''Pterodactylus'' (referred to as "Pterodactyl") is the same size as ''Pteranodon'', which is portrayed as being large and strong enough to carry a full-grown human.
** On the other end of the spectrum, the Dino Riders ''Ankylosaurus'' was tiny compared to its real life counterpart, and ''Saurolophus'' was barely larger than the ''Deinonychus'', despite the actual animal being comparable in scale to the ''Tyrannosaurus'' (the toy version is smaller than the ''T. rex'''s ''leg''. ''Quetzalcoatlus'' is the same size as ''Pteranodon''. And ''Dimetrodon'' was in no way large enough to cart around a rider and all that armor, and the whole "hide behind the sail and raise a seat above it as cover" trick would never work.

** Rulon Examples: Krulos got two color swaps in the "Two-Packs", sharing his name but coming in different colors. Antor is the key "ant", coming with the ''Deinonychus''- his Swaps are Sting (''Ankylosaurus''), Bitor (another ''Tyrannosaurus'' figure), Drone, Fire, Termite and Demon. Rasp is the key "viper", coming with the ''Quetzalcoatlus''- his Swaps are Cobrus (''T. rex'' add-on #2), Sidewinder (''Triceratops'' co-rider), Fang, Rattlar and Skwirm. Hammerhead is the main "shark" figure, and gets to ride the large and pricey ''Triceratops''- his Swaps are the similarly-colored Mako (stuck riding the much-smaller ''Monoclonius''), Finn, Six-Gill, Dedeye and Gill. Krok is the only "Crocodile" character seen in the cartoon, and comes with the ''Kentrosaurus''- his Swaps are Algar (ultra-rare Rulon ''Quetzalcoatlus'' rider), Kraw, Snarrl, Gorr and Gutz. Lokus is a rarely-seen "locust", and comes with the ''Saurolophus''- his Swaps are Poxx, Buzz and Squish (all mini-pack figures). Skate is also rare, coming with the ''Placerias''- his Swaps are Sludge and Ray.

** Some Rulon examples: The ''Ankylosaurus'' comes with Sting, a Swap of Antor. Bitor and Cobrus were sold with the ''Tyrannosaurus'' alongside Krulos, but were red & black Swaps of the ant and viper characters, respectively. Sidewinder, a viper, joins "name character" Hammerhead on the ''Triceratops''. Hammerhead gets to ride the large (and pricey) ''Triceratops'', but his similar-looking Swap Mako gets the smaller (and cheaper) ''Monoclonius''.
** Valorians were not excluded: Llahd rides the ''Pterodactyl'', and the brown Swap Nimbus rides the ''Struthiomimus''. Axis (''Edmontonia'') and Ayce (''Brontosaurus'') are also using the same character mold. Tagg (the TokenMinority black guy) is Gunnur with a different head and color scheme. Shado, rider of the ''Dimetrodon'', has the same mold as Tark, the ''Stegosaurus'' rider.
** The toyline made this a common feature in the "Two-Packs" that were sold, featuring only humanoid characters -- each was sold with one Rulon and one Dino-Rider. All six Rulon Generals had two or more characters that were just Palette Swaps (Antor, for example, had Termite, Demon, Drone & Fire. Skate only had Sludj and Ray). Krulos received two Swaps in the same sets, though both were still named "Krulos". The Dino-Riders often had Swaps of established characters with the same name -- Questar, Mind-Zei, Yungstar and Serena all receive Swaps (there are two more Questars in the Two-Packs, colored differently than the one that came with the ''Diplodocus''), in addition to a couple of differently-named ones (Serena gets one named "Ursus"; Yungstar has ''several'' guys using his torso and/or head mold).
** The ''dinosaurs'' were not excluded, either, especially for the toys. Both sides received ''Deinonychus'' that were identical but for the color of their stripes. The ''Monoclonius'', ''Styracosaurus'' and ''Chasmosaurus'' (a later, rare release) have the same body mold, but different heads and color schemes. The ''Triceratops'' and its Dino-Rider counterpart, the ''Torosaurus'' share the same body, having different colors and heads (later, the ''Pachyrhinosaurus'' -- among the rarest toys in the line -- joins them). The Rulons later get a Swap of the ''Quetzalcoatlus''.

One type, unseen in the cartoon, was the Tark (''Stegosaurus'')/Shado (''Dimetrodon'') style- it also included Llava (''Chasmosaurus'') and Hondo. Axis rode the ''Edmontonia'', and spun off Ion (''Brontosaurus'' add-on), Graff and Ecco. Ayce rode the ''Brontosaurus'' also, and spun off Atlas (''Pachyrhinosaurus''), Neutrino and Wizz.
** Even the "Cavemen" figures were all Swaps of each other: Grom (''Woolly Mammoth''), Ulk (''Giant Ground Sloth''), Zar (''Killer Wart Hog''), Kub (''Sabre-Toothed Tiger''), Onk, Urg, Tor and Agga.

The ''Pteranodon'' and ''Quetzalcoatlus'' also are Swaps with different heads. The Rulons later get a straight Swap of the ''Quetzalcoatlus''.''Quetzalcoatlus'', patterned like an aircraft.

** The greatest irony is that at the time they were released, [[TheMerch the toys]] for the franchise were considered some of the best, most realistic depictions of dinosaurs available ''anywhere''. [[ScienceMarchesOn Not so much these days...]] They were fully articulated, unlike most dinosaur toys, so that was cool.
*** Oddly, the distinctive-looking ''T. rex'' figure appears to have gained another very weird life as the inspiration for Rex in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''!
