Added DiffLines:

* Megalodon: The monster in the first episode. It looks more like a mosasaur than a megalodon though.

* InferredHolocaust: In the very first episode, the mutated shark sinks a boat, and no one on board is shown getting off safely. Rather shocking, considering how much the show usually goes out of its way to avoid real violence.

* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: Roger's morph is supposed to be a ''Styracosaurus'', yet it has ''Triceratops'' forehead horns. Also, Caruso's ''Stegosaurus'' has five spikes on his tail and a lizard-like face. In general the show's research on dinosaurs seems to have consisted of watching the ''JurassicPark'' movies.

* CurbStompBattle: This is the usual result when Veloci changes to his raptor form to fight, since he's dwarfed in power by just about every other creature in the show. Examples include him being vaulted off the t-rex's nose, and being blown away when a giant gorilla roars at him. One wonders why he bothers.

* MonsterOfTheWeek: Although done differently from most such shows in that the villain simply creates the monsters to gether scientifict data in order to complete his main plan to create a dinosaur-populated planet. He doesn't actually control them and usually doesn't specifically use them as part of some kind of evil plan. This leads to some episodes where the Dino Squad defeats the monster halfway through and then has to contend with Veloci, who's showed up to collect his specimen, in the final act.
* PteroSoarer: Buzz's Pteranodon morph.
* RaptorAttack: Victor Velcoi.

* TwoDecadesBehind: The show would have fit right in with early-90's action cartoons, from the cheesy theme song, overused transformation sequences, {{Green Aesop}}s and Buzz's neon mohawk to its general resemblance to shows like ''WesternAnimation/StreetSharks''. Yet it came out in 2007. The Halloween episode even has a reference to the Funky Chicken dance.

* TwoDecadesBehind: The show ''The whole show.'' It would have fit right in with many early-90's action cartoons, from the cheesy theme song, overused transformation sequences, {{Green Aesop}}s and Buzz's neon mohawk to its general resemblance to shows like ''WesternAnimation/StreetSharks''. Yet it came out in 2007. The Halloween episode even has a reference to the Funky Chicken dance.
