* The title character [[spoiler:pretty much singlehandedly rescues her pack from a murderous Acrocanthosaur by luring her into the ocean where she is eaten by a giant Kronosaurus which was previously stalking Raptor Red's niece]].
* Raptor Red's consort gets one when [[spoiler:towards the end, he shows up in a BigDamnHeroes moment to rescue Raptor Red from a pack of Deinonychus]].
* And Aegi (see MostWritersAreHuman on the main page) [[spoiler:first running into a scorpion and destroying it, and then eating ''an entire swarm of diseased parasites that would otherwise have killed one of Raptor Red's pack''. Pretty good for a mammal that's small enough for a frog to nearly swallow him whole.]]
* It [[spoiler:leads to a TearJerker later on, but the whip tail Curb Stomping the ''Utahraptor'' was quite awesome, especially as the first chapter in the book showed that two ''Utahraptor'' could kill another sauropod, an ''Astrodon'', with relative ease.]]
