Usually preferring to avoid confrontation, and typically [[TurtlePower ducking his head into his suit]] at the first sign of trouble, Stego has, on two separate occasions, infiltrated the Tyranno base ''by himself'' to rescue his friends.

* GoneHorriblyRight: In one episode, Genghis Rex steals a formula that would make him beautiful so the people of Earth would follow him willingly. It works, but Rex didn't realize that what [[ValuesDissonance Tyrannos consider]] [[SpikesOfVillainy beautiful,]] humans consider ''terrifying''.



* HarmlessVillain: Most of the Tyrannos. They rarely get around to doing anything really ''evil'', and even when they try to they mess up. Some of them (Terrible Dactyl and Plesio) are also known to show [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes non-evil]] [[PetTheDog behavior,]] and at times they [[GoKartingWithBowser play games with the Dinosaucers]]. [[FriendlyEnemies In fact, in one episode Quackpot is allowed to babysit one of Bonehead's relations]].

*** Then again, when he dinovolves, he definitely ''looks'' like a dimetrodon.



** Although Terrible Dactyl had teeth and a tail, which Pteranodon didn't, a more primitive pterodactyl called Rhamphorhynchus did. In fact, the animators of Dinosaucers were clearly inspired by Ramphorhynchus when designing Terrible Dactyl.

*** On the other hand, this wouldn't be the first, or last time pteranodons were depicted with [[PteroSoarer such inaccuracies.]]

**Plesio is supposed to be a plesiosaurus, but his long tail, [[BeardOfEvil beard]] and tendrils trailing off his scalp make him look more like a [[DinosaursAreDragons dragon.]]

** In fact, there was an episode parodying ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''. No points for guessing who played the Cowardly Lion.



* EvilCounterpart[=/=]GoodCounterpart: Many of the characters are good/evil counterparts of each other - Allo/Genghis Rex, Teryx/Terrible Dactyl, Bronto Thunder/Brachio, Tricero/Styraco, and Ichy/Plesio.

Added DiffLines:

** In one episode, the Secret Scouts were chased into a cavern by "the largest of all dinosaurs, a ''Supersaurus''" (a dinosaur that was basically a larger version of Brachiosaurus). There was a brief period of time when this was widely accepted as accurate, although it was later discovered that Supersaurus was actually related to Diplodocus not Brachiosaurus. However, none of this excuses making the Supersaurus ''carnivorous'', with a serpentine neck and sharp teeth.

Added DiffLines:

* ADayInTheLimelight: Styraco was probably the least-used character in the show, but he got one episode all to himself - he got kicked out of the Tyrannos, then disguised himself as a human and went to school. It was a [[BLAMepisode weird episode]].

** There's [[RuleOfCool a little leeway]] given that these are all [[IntelligentGerbil aliens who happen to resemble anthropomorphic versions of Earth animals]]. Still, there are some weird things such as Quackpot's fangs and Terrible Dactyl's long tail. Further, the Dinosaucers and Tyrannos who ''aren't'' dinosaurs (but who end up being called as such in [[TheyJustDidntCare low-quality]] children's books), Dimetro, Terrible, Ichy, and Plesio, keep calling themselves dinosaurs.

* HumansAreSpecial: The dinosaurs of Reptilon ''love'' humans, their cultures and traditions. Everything. Its amusing to see the [[PunyEarthlings huge technologically advanced beings]] who often [[FantasticRacism insult the people of Earth]] by derogatorily calling us "just mammals", forget themselves and just fanboy over us. The reason why? Its the very same reason why you think [[DangerouslyGenreSavvy dinosaurs are so amazing]].

* UnwantedRescue: In one particularly strange episode, Plesio does a jailbreak for the underwater inhabitants of an aquarium. He essentially offers them freedom from their "Human Slave Masters". While the sea creatures are initially swayed into thinking Plesio's form of freedom is right, they quickly become disillusioned. Mostly because they grow hungry, tired, they no longer think its very fun, and Plesio states that he [[FantasticRacism hates mammals in general]] making the Dolphins abandon him. Plesio's plans to take back the seas from the humans only goes as far freeing a school of fish from the net of a fishing boat. Of course, the aquarium creatures were probably raised in captivity, but hearing one say "I don't think I like freedom" is kinda weird. Needless to say, the episode is like a reverse viewing of ''CaptainPlanet''.

* '''Bronto Thunder''': An Apatosaurus... or Brontosaurus. That name is always confusing for writers it seems. Was considered second in command.
