* EvenBetterSequel: ''Beasts'' and ''Monsters'' got even more acclaim and (to some) have aged significantly better than ''Dinosaurs''.

Added DiffLines:

** The ''Diplodocus'' hatchlings of the original show sometimes utter noises awfully reminiscent of human babies.

** The ''[[UsefulNotes/StockDinosaursTrue Dinosaurs Allosaurus]]'' in "Time of the Titans" certainly qualifies, considering it hunts some of the biggest creatures on the planet.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool: Not that any of the characters are actually ''evil'', but a lot of the predators which fill the role of villains are quite cool.
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeNonDinosaurianReptiles Postosuchus]]'' in "New Blood". As the narration puts it, "[[TheDreaded the only thing she fears is another]] ''[[TheDreaded Postosuchus]]''."
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/StockDinosaursTrue Dinosaurs Allosaurus]]'' in "Time of the Titans" certainly qualifies, considering it hunts some of the biggest creatures on the planet.
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs Liopleurodon]]'' in "Cruel Sea". It's the biggest predator on the planet, and its EstablishingCharacterMoment is probably the coolest scene in the series.
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeBirds Gastornis]]'' from "New Dawn", [[ScienceMarchesOn though the real thing has turned out to be significantly less cool.]]
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals Hyaenodon]]'' from "Land of Giants" is one of the biggest land carnivores of its time and certainly one of the fiercest. Also the [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals entelodonts]], who very much deserve their title "hogs from Hell".
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals Dinofelis]]'' from "Next of Kin" is basically a super sized leopard, with saber teeth, and more muscular body. Our ancestors learn who is the top predator of the savannah in a hard way.
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeOtherExtinctCreatures Anomalocaris]]'' in The Cambrian, the first top predator ever.
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeOtherExtinctCreatures Proterogyrinus]]'' in The Carboniferous remains top predator in a world ruled by creepy-crawlies.

** The arthropods in ''Monsters''. Whereas predators in other instalments are portrayed as {{Non-Malicious Monster}}s who are only villains because we see things from the perspective of their prey (or aren't villains at all, in some cases), the narrator in ''Monsters'' paints the predators of human ancestors as though they're [[PrehistoricMonster vicious, evil, malevolent brutes who are waging some kind of "war on vertebrates".]] This is even though, like the "villains" of ''Dinosaurs'' and ''Beasts'', the arthropods are just regular animals doing what they have to do to survive.

* DesignatedVillain: Of the 3D movie, Gorgon. He's treated as the main villain, and yet just a predator trying to survive and feed his pack. Probably justified, though, as the story is told from the point of view of his prey.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The giant sea reptile ''[[UsefulNotes/StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs Liopleurodon]]''. This show did to him what ''Film/JurassicPark'' did to ''[[UsefulNotes/StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Velociraptor]]'': make it stock (as well as exaggerate its size).

* HellIsThatNoise: The dying screeches of the dominant ''Leaellynasaura'' as it's killed by the ''Allosaurus'' in episode 5. ''Holy shit''.

to:

* HellIsThatNoise: The dying screeches of the dominant ''Leaellynasaura'' as it's killed by the ''Allosaurus'' in episode 5. ''Holy shit''. It's arguably even worse by how abruptly it cuts off, followed by the plop of its mangled carcass falling to the ground.

** The film has no lip synching, leading to speculation that it was supposed to be a serious documentary and was changed to a comedic film a la WesternAnimation/IceAge at last minute, because ViewersAreMorons. Cue outcry of TheyChangedItNowItSucks.
