Added DiffLines:

** Stalking ''Utahraptor'' from the front. Their long snouts become unnoticed and they look like goofy LizardFolk.

* NoProblemWithLicensedGames: In contrast to the 3D film, the video game is much better received.

** ''Plesiopleurodon'' is only in frame for a few seconds, but impresses the dangers of the sea that the ''Ornithocheirus'' was flying over.
** ''Ankylosaurus''. Narrowly averted, as they have a small introduction early on.

to:

** ''Plesiopleurodon'' The unidentified pliosaur (presumably ''Plesiopleurodon'') is only in frame for a few seconds, but impresses the dangers of the sea that the ''Ornithocheirus'' was flying over.
** ''Ankylosaurus''. Narrowly averted, averted with ''Ankylosaurus'', as they have a small introduction early on.

** ''Plateosaurus''.
** ''Stegosaurus''.
** ''Plesiopleurodon''.

to:

** ''Plateosaurus''.
''Plateosaurus'' only shows up at the end of the first episode, but it's easily the biggest creature seen thus far, and makes quite the EstablishingCharacterMoment for large dinosaurs.
** ''Stegosaurus''.
''Stegosaurus'' appears during the canyon scene, but his badass intimidation of the ''Allosaurus'' leaves an impression.
** ''Plesiopleurodon''.''Plesiopleurodon'' is only in frame for a few seconds, but impresses the dangers of the sea that the ''Ornithocheirus'' was flying over.



** ''Quetzalcoatlus''.
** ''Deinosuchus''.

to:

** ''Quetzalcoatlus''.
''Quetzalcoatlus'', which captures the majesty of the large pterosaurs (in the series at least, in the book it's subjected to a karmic death) and highlights their decline.
** ''Deinosuchus''. A few shots are all that is needed to make the danger feel palpable.

** Alex the ''Alexornis'' from the same movie is a bizzare example of a ''Reverse'' Scrappy, being one of the only characters who isn't nigh-universally considered annoying and stupid. Being voiced by Creator/JohnLeguizamo certainly helped.



** Although the ''WWD'' movie got mostly negative and mixed reviews, the visuals have impressed mostly everyone, whether it's just the CGI or the 3D effects as well. The bulk of the critics single them (as well as Creator/JohnLeguizamo's "spirited way with words") out as the sole saving graces of the film.

* HilariousInHindsight:
** The "Cruel Sea" opening reminds people of the ending to ''Film/JurassicWorld''.
** In "Giant of the Skies", the tapejarids are depicted as having black bodies and red crests. In 2017, a tapejarid was discovered with preserved melanosomes (pigment cells). Guess what colors its body and crest were.

** The dromaeosaurid from "Death of a Dynasty" was seen as an example of AnachronismStew, as ''Dromaeosaurus'' (what the animal was called during production despite its flaws) was extinct by the K/Pg extinction. Skip ahead to 2015, and [[AccidentallyCorrectWriting a dromaeosaur just the right size to match with this creature was discovered in the exact formation the episode takes place in]] (''Dakotaraptor'').

* TheScrappy:
** Juniper, from the 2013 movie, is considered a bizarre ''Gender'' Scrappy for being a FlatCharacter and evident of the gratuitous sexism the movie shows.
** Alex the ''Alexornis'' from the same movie is a bizzare example of a ''Reverse'' Scrappy, being one of the only characters who isn't nigh-universally considered annoying and stupid. Being voiced by Creator/JohnLeguizamo certainly helped.



* SoBadItsGood: Arguably the 2013 movie, with its inept childish dialogue, over-the-top cliché plot and gratuitous sexism. Others just see it as horrible, though.

* {{Squick}}: Early on in the 2013 movie, a hatchling Patchi is defecated on by a larger dinosaur. This wouldn't be so bad if he hadn't received a ''gaping open wound'' in his frill less than a minute before.
