[[caption-width-right:350:'''HOLY CRAP.''']]
Several examples.
----
* The march of the ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Diplodocus]]'' in the opening of "Time of the Titans" in the original ''WalkingWithDinosaurs''.
* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFHITnJ52pI opening]] to ''Cruel Sea'' is probably the most memorable moment of the entire series, when Branagh narrates "The predator is laying in wait for its prey, waiting to strike," with a ''Eustreptospondylus'' peering into the ocean expectantly - when suddenly a giant ''Liopleurodon'' leaps out of the water, snatching the large theropod off the land for a tasty meal. The episode title card, "Cruel Sea", punctuates the moment.
* From the special ''Sea Monsters'' Nigel Marven tagging the giant shark ''{{Megalodon}}''.
** And later at the end of the episode the Mosasaur pod suddenly targets the ship...[[FridgeHorror fridge horror ensues]]
* The mother ''[[StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs Dimetrodon]]'' defending her nest from the rival female in ''Walking with Monsters''.
* Another example from the same program: the tiny predator ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeNonDinosaurianReptiles Euparkeria]]'' becoming a gigantic ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Allosaurus]]'' and ''frightening the croc-like [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeNonDinosaurianReptiles chasmatosaur]] which chased it just before'' (like saying: "Yeah, sucka! Who's an apex predator NOW?!")
* The ending of the WWD episode New Blood, when a herd of ''[[STockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Plateosaurus]]'' march in, scaring off the ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Coelophysis]]''.
* The ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Diplodocus]]'' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1yv7Pi78Og hunt in "The Ballad of Big Al"]], and the music really helps.
* In a lot of media, [[StockDinosaursNonDinosaurs ground sloths]] are portrayed as slow-moving animals that easily fall prey to predators. Not this one.
** The fatal wound the sloth gives a sabre-toothed cat almost resembles a DopeSlap.
* That awesome scene towards the end of the episode "Next of Kin", where our ancestors sent the ''Dinofelis'' running with its tail between its legs… by throwing rocks at it. No test of strength or speed; they used their ''brains'' and refused to back down.
* The music. Just... the music, for all of them.
* It [[DownerEnding ended badly]], but you can't deny that the old male ''Ornithocheirus''' journey in "Giant of the Skies" was pretty awesome; he's 40-years-old (which is bound to be ancient in pterosaur years), and yet he flew halfway across the world just because his sex drive was too much for him to ignore. And he beat death multiple times while doing it, given that he could have ended up getting eaten by a sea monster or mauled by raptors. Instead, he dies because the journey tired him out. Which, in a weird sort of way, makes it a DyingMomentOfAwesome too.
* The juvenile indricothere. The narrator states that the calf after being driven away by its mother and hasn't been seen in months. You begin to detect a DownerEnding, but then the indricothere returns, and when two ''entelodonts'' (aka Pigs from Hell) appear, the teen beast just effortlessly chases them off, and bellows as if to say, "Don't even ''think'' of messing me, mofos."
** Then he ''runs down [[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou the cameraman!]]''
* From the episode ''Sabretooth'', the Half tooth make his glorious entry by rescuing his cub and chasing a pair of [[FeatheredFiend Terror birds]], despite the fact this would be impossible in RealLife, mostly because ''Phorusracos'' was already extinct and that species of sabre tooth had yet to evolve.
** The hunting scene of the Smilodon clan clearly shows that they are one the [[BadassCrew most deadly predator on the planet]]
*** Unfortunately, they hunted in a way that would have been physically impossible in RealLife: they were neither fast nor agile and would not have caught anything that way.
** Half Tooth vs the Evil Brotherhood round 2!! Half tooth manage to kicks the intruder's butt once and for all.
*** Once again goes against everything known about ''Smilodon''. These entries are more of a Crowning Moment Of Fail for the WWD team.
** [[NotSoHarmlessVillain The Megatherium]] shows why despite his lumbering appearance, it is still one of the [[The Dreaded most feared creature]] in the plain
* Patchi saving [[{{Jerkass}} Scowler]] (the dinosaur who picked on him everyday, kicked him out of the herd, and [[IHaveNoSon refused to call him his brother]]) from the Gorgosaurus. In fact, he and the herd work together to drive the predators back, and he even breaks Gorgon's arm with [[ChekovsGun the hole in his frill]] and knock some teeth out. And the line he says shows how far he's come.
-->'''Patchi''': [[AndThisIsFor That was for my brother]], that was for my dad, and THIS (headbutts Gorgon, knocking out some of his teeth in the process) that's so how you'll remember me!
** Not to mention what triggered this moment. Shortly after Scowler reached his nastiest, Gorgon gives him [[KickTheSonOfABitch exactly what he deserves]].
* Don't forget the fight between Patchi and Scowler. Of course [[spoiler:Patchi lost]], but it's still amazing how he refuses to back down from his bullying brother.
* Alex gets one when he snaps Patchi out of his HeroicBSOD by telling him that he should live or die for something worth living for.
-->'''Alex''': Patchi, listen to me. Do not die in vain. If you want to die, die for something your father did. [[HeroicSacrifice He died for you.]]
* Patchi leading the herd safely around the frozen lake.
* Gorgon snatching the Azhdarchid pterosaur out of the air.
