* AllPlanetsAreEarthLike: Reptilon, which is also ''exactly'' on the [[CounterEarth opposite side of the Sun from Earth]]. [[AliensSpeakingEnglish And they speak perfect English off the bat.]]

* AllPlanetsAreEarthLike: Subverted with Reptilon, which is also ''exactly'' on the [[CounterEarth opposite side of the Sun from Earth]]. [[AliensSpeakingEnglish And they speak perfect English off the bat.]]]] It has two moons. Its climate is much warmer than on Earth, that the Dinosaucers are not used to snow on our world and find the cold almost unbearable.

* HumanPet: The dinosaurs of Reptilon's love for humans has grown to this point. Even many Tyrannos wanting one for themselves. Allo himself, who has become weary of the Furballs, now believes ''"A Dinosaucers' best friend is his mammal"''.

* 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]].
* AlienInvasion: Played straight with the Tyrannos, though due to their incompetence [[EasilyThwartedAlienInvasion its usually over before it starts]]. With the Dinosaucers its curiously more of a {{BenevolentAlienInvasion}} as they set up bases and want to share technology and knowledge.

** Dimetro is kind of an oddball there. Dimetrodons are most definitely not dinosaurs. They are pelycosaurs, the ancestors of the therapsids, who were in turn the ancestors of mammals (in short, Dimetro is a closer relative of the Secret Scouts than he is to any of the Dinosaucers). However, given Dimetro's appearance, it's very possible that the producers had Dimetrodon confused with Spinosaurus. Old illustrations of Spinosaurus basically show an animal that could easily be confused for a bipedal Dimetrodon (the only good specimen of Spinosaurus was destroyed during World War two -- really). Indeed, Dimetro's head resembles the head Spinosaurs were drawn with in the 1980's, long before Spinosaurus' relative Baryonyx was discovered and turned out to have a head that does not look like that of any other large theropod at all. Take a look at [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/babbletrish/5561152515/in/photostream/ this old illustration]] from the time (there's even a direct comparison to Dimetrodon) for an example.
*** 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 pterosaur 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.]]

* DidntThinkThisThrough: This why the Tyrannos fail half the time. In one episode, the Tyrannos go back to old jobs to make the Dinosaucers think they've given up and let their guard down, allowing the Tyrannos to attack the Dinosorcerer and Dinosorceress without any opposition. However, since the Tyrannos went back to their old jobs, they're too busy to aid Rex and Dei with the attack.



* GracefulLoser: When the Secret Scouts foiled Perry Porter's plan to photograph the captured Dinosaucers, he merely shrugged it off, saying "You win a few, you lose a few."
** When Sara beat her rival Giselle in the school Olympics, Giselle was visibly annoyed that she lost, but still gave Sara a congratulatory handshake.
** When Allo saved the Secret Scouts from a Tyranno film shoot, Attila Rex told Genghis not to be too upset since "That's showbiz!"
* 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 Bonehead's baby brother]].

* IntrepidReporter: A villainous example with Perry Porter, a newspaper photographer who was accidentally given Sara's pictures of the Dinosaucers and teamed up with the Tyrannos to capture them and make them the scoop of the century.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Egbert Feeney, a birdwatcher who was able to capture Teryx in order to make her the find of the century, without any help from the Tyrannos or anyone else. Granted, Teryx was sick at the time, but still.


Added DiffLines:

** Not to mention all the times they misinterpret simple Earth things, like thinking that toy commercials are advertisements for weapons, that summer camp is really boot camp, that 'reduced for clearance' means a guy named Clarence has a shrink ray (also that he wears stilts is proof of this), that an actor on TV is really a superhero, etc. The Dinosaucers sometimes fell victim to this too.

* WeaksauceWeakness: How does Sara defeat the Sabertooth tiger pirates? With catnip.

The entire show's premise may be ridiculous, but hey... [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs it's dinosaurs]], and it was boosted by general tongue-in-cheek writing and pretty good characters. Compare/contrast the genuinely ridiculous ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeDinosaurs'', ''WesternAnimation/DinoSquad'' and ''WesternAnimation/KungFuDinoPosse''.

* CowardlyLion Stego. 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. First Teryx and Sara, and later a human boy he had just met that day.
