'''''[[http://askvelociraptor.tumblr.com/ Ask a Velociraptor]]''''' is a Website/{{Tumblr}} blog run by a ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Velociraptor]]''. It has gained massive attention and popularity from online dinosaur enthusiasts due to its aversion of RaptorAttack, as well as its consistently entertaining and [[ShownTheirWork well-thought-out]] answers.

!!This work provides examples of the following tropes:
* {{Adorkable}}: ''Velociraptor'' himself qualifies. That's right; this blog makes a ''flesh-eating dinosaur'' into an adorable little ball of awkward.
* {{Animesque}}: The art style sometimes forages into this. The ''Velociraptor'' himself looks quasi-super deformed.
* CartoonCreature: "Poorlydrawndinosaur", who asks the ''Velociraptor'' for help figuring out what species he is [[http://askvelociraptor.tumblr.com/post/21192401724/im-gonna-say-some-form-of-tyrannosauroid here]].
* CharacterBlog
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: ''Microraptor'' are said to be these.
* CoolBigBro: ''Deinonychus'' are said to be these.
** ''Deinonychus'' also cheered ''Velociraptor'' up after he got buried by a sandstorm.
* FeatheredFiend: ''Utahraptor'', [[http://askvelociraptor.tumblr.com/post/14234343708/im-pretty-wary-of-them cassowaries]], [[http://askvelociraptor.tumblr.com/post/14483655017/of-course-anything-crows-can-do-except-yknow crows]]...Averted with our title character, though.
* FourthWallMailSlot
* IntelligenceEqualsIsolation: ''Velociraptor'' notes that ''Troodons'' and their ilk are very smart, but tend to keep to themselves.
* {{Jerkass}}: ''Utahraptor'' are said to be these.
* NiceGuy: The ''Velociraptor'' himself is very polite, a far cry from how his species is [[PrehistoricMonster usually]] [[FeatheredFiend depicted]].
* OrphanedSeries: No new posts since 2012.
* RaptorAttack: Massively averted!
* RavensAndCrows: A flock of crows [[http://askvelociraptor.tumblr.com/post/14483655017/of-course-anything-crows-can-do-except-yknow aren't amused]] by the ''Velociraptor'' boasting about having useable fingers and insulting their intelligence.
* ShoutOut: Music/{{Drake}} is mentioned once.
** ''Velociraptor'' said his favorite Franchise/{{Pokemon}} is Archeops.
** The above mentioned ''Deinonychus'' cheering ''Velociraptor'' up moment was inspired by Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann.
* ShownTheirWork
* StockDinosaurs: ''Velociraptor'' itself, ''Deinonychus'', ''Protoceratops'', ''Utahraptor'', etc.
* SuperOCD: ''Velociraptor'' comments that ''Oviraptors'' tend to be rather neurotic, especially when it comes to [[MamaBear their]] [[PapaWolf eggs]].
* TakeThat: To ''Film/JurassicPark'' at various points.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: The female ''Velociraptor'' shown [[http://askvelociraptor.tumblr.com/post/23590224406/while-currently-lacking-any-females-and-or here]] has a single eyelash.
* ZergRush: An occasional [[http://askvelociraptor.tumblr.com/post/14659015703/not-really-a-pack-group-of-other-velociraptor-i hunting technique]] for the ''Velociraptor''.
--> "We’re not coordinated enough to be a pack, honestly. We just tend to overpower whatever prey item we have our sights on, then proceed to try and overpower the other ''Velociraptor'' for dibs on the good bits."
