* ''Saturn VideoGame/{{Bomberman}}'' traded the [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter adorable]] [[KangaroosRepresentAustralia kangaroos]] for [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter equally adorable]] dinosaurs as the PowerupMount of choice. They're also available as alternate choices to the roois/ruis/Louies in ''Bomberman Fantasy Race''.
* The entire premise of the multiplayer FPS ''VideoGame/PrimalCarnage''.
* The game ''VideoGame/TheKingOfDragonPass'' is vaguely based on old Norse traditions and mythology. So, naturally, you can [[http://img107.imageshack.us/img107/9225/whoabv0.png train dinosaurs as battle mounts.]]
* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' has the rare Tyrannosaurs and their palette swap, Allosaurus.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVI'' had a few dinosaurs as random encounters. It also has Dinosaur Island, a place which does not provide any plot or gameplay bonuses, but has a lot of tough fights which are good for [[LevelGrinding levelling up]].
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII'' has [[CallARabbitASmeerp ''T. Rexaurs'']] to fight. As does ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'' has lightning-spewing raptors.
* ''DragonQuest'' has the recurring Hackasaurus (or Battle Rex), [[AnAxeToGrind an axe-wielding]], [[DinosaursAreDragons fire-breathing]] tyrannosaurus. ''VideoGame/DragonQuestVI'', in particular, has Lizzie the Hackasaurus, whom you can get to join your team in a special encounter; in the DS remake, she's the ''only'' non-[[MascotMook Slime]] you can recruit.
* Despite taking place in the modern day, ''VideoGame/DeadOrAlive 4'' has an area populated entirely by dinosaurs.
* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'':
** [[ExpansionPack The Covert Ops]]'' has a secret mini-campaign which involves dinosaurs, both fighting them and fighting ''as'' them.
** In ''Red Alert 2'''s expansion ''Yuri's Revenge'', the first Soviet mission deals with time travel and you're accidentally sent back to the dinosaur period to fight off hordes of ''T. rex''es. This of course includes the fate of the game's antagonist Yuri in the same campaign who after stealing the time machine from the Soviets tries to use it to "command and conquer" the world and all its history. Unfortunately for Yuri, the Soviets still had the command codes for the time machine and depleted all of its energy reserves to send Yuri back to the dinosaur era while he was gloating. Then Yuri lets off a BigNo as a ''T. rex'' smashes through the time machine to devour him.
* The first ''VideoGame/TombRaider'' game had dinosaurs and a ''T. rex'' as enemies for no particular reason other than RuleOfCool, though an FMV later in the game implied that they were created by the [[MacGuffin Scion]]. The dinosaurs returned without explanation in ''Tomb Raider 3''.
** ''Tomb Raider 2'' and its GaidenGame ''Golden Mask'' both feature secret, difficult-to-reach battles with more ''T. rex''es, the sole reason being that they were considered the coolest part of the first game.
* ''RadGravity'' had a dinosaur planet as one level.
* ''VideoGame/{{Turok}}'' would just be another FPS if it didn't pit you against dinosaurs.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'':
** There are Raptors as fairly common animals (and mount for trolls), and gigantic ''T. rex''es, called Devilsaurs, as a rarer sort. They only appear in a few areas (Un'Goro Crater, where there are only about five of them at any given time; The Netherstorm, where a single Devilsaur rules over an eco-dome filled with raptors; Drak'Tharon Keep, with the optional boss King Dred; and Sholazar Basin, home of the rare-spawn King Krush). For being such enormous beasts they move like ninjas, and many players have had their adventure cut short by a sneak attack.
** With a later patch, Beast Mastery Hunters can tame one of these giants (although it inexplicably shrinks to a more manageable size in the progess). It's undoubtedly the coolest of the exotic class pets (although that isn't saying much when the competition consists out of prime choices like bugs and worms).
** There are also Dragonspawn, bascially flightless dragons.
** With the reveal of patch 5.2 in the Mists of Pandaria expansion, WoW is taking it [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven]]. The Zandalari trolls have revealed they have dinomancers, complete with Devilsaurs, Triceratops, and Pterasaurs. All of which have awesome armor, and some with cannons strapped to their sides. Say it with me again: '''Dinomancers'''. You wish you were that cool.
* ''GuildWars'' introduces a dinosaur-rich jungle in its ''Eye of the North'' expansion. Being a fantasy game, it includes feathered Raptor Assasins, Armor-plated ceratopsians with shoulder-horns, [[TyrannosaurusRex Tyrannosaurs]], therapods with multiple heads and tails, and other bizarre reptiles.
* The ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' series of games already had Bowser as some sort of dragon-dinosaur-turtle hybrid, and then in ''VideoGame/SuperMarioWorld'' along came Yoshi and his friends. ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros2'' introduced the cute bruiser Birdo. The series also has [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 Dorrie]] and [[VideoGame/SuperMario3DWorld Plessie]], who are Plesiosaurs that offer Mario and his friends a ride.
* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' uses several dinosaur and related species-themed Mons over the years: Lapras (Plesiosaur), Aerodactyl (Pterosaur), Tyranitar (Franchise/{{Godzilla}} with some hints of ''T. rex''), Meganium (Diplodocus or other sauropods)), Groudon (vaguely T.rex-ish), Torterra (an ankylosaur [[MixAndMatchCritters crossed with a tortoise]]), Cranidos/Rampardos ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachycephalosauria Pachycephalosaurs]], not ''T. rex''), Shieldon/Bastiodon (Triceratops or other ceratopses), Rhyperior (an ankylosaur [[MixAndMatchCritters crossed with a rhino]]), , Archen and Archeops (Archaeopteryx), Amaura and Aurorus ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amargasaurus Amargasaurus]]) and Tyrunt and Tyrantrum (very unambiguously based on ''T. rex'').
** Oddly, most prehistoric Pokemon are part-Rock types, at least the ones that have to be [[ShoutOut reanimated from fossils]]. Even [[LightningBruiser Aerodactyl]], a ''pterosaur made of rock''.
* ''VideoGame/BarkleyShutUpAndJamGaiden'': [[spoiler:The OneWingedAngel form of the last boss is ''T-Rex Barkley.'' Many gamers laughed for a good three minutes after the reveal.]]
* ''VideoGame/AdventureIsland'', from the second game onward, gave Master Higgins dinosaur buddies that granted him extra powers.
* The Triscene terror units from ''{{X-COM}}: Terror From The Deep'', which are [[{{Cyborg}} cyborg dinosaurs]] that come equipped with [[MakeMeWannaShout Sonic Cannons]].
* ''[[http://www.dinodday.com/ Dino D-Day]]'' displays this trope, showcasing an AlternateHistory version of WorldWarII where the Third Reich unleashes their new secret weapon: ''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Nazi dinosaurs]]''. Another Source Mod, Jailbreak, has this as part of the premise: It's [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Dinosaurs vs Robots]].
* The ''VideoGame/MonsterHunter'' series features raptors as mooks. With the sequels and updates, you are getting a lot of dinosaurs (that happen to be changed slightly) that stand out. There may be odd hybrids and creatures that are outright dragons but the sheer number of dinos in the series is definitely worth looking through. That and the giant T-rex that Monster Hunter Tri introduces to you all.
* ''VideoGame/DwarfFortress'' sends goblins after you. Survive long enough, and they come mounted on velociraptors (known in-game as Beak Dogs).
* ''VideoGame/ChronoTrigger'''s dinos actually appear in 65 million BC ([[{{Prehistoria}} along with people]], oddly inverting that trope) as well as in a 600 AD bonus dungeon (where millions of years of underground living have made them tough as nails).
* [[{{Prehistoria}} Dinosaur Jungle]] from ''[[SonicStorybookSeries Sonic and the Secret Rings]]'' are filled with dinosaurs. At one point, Sonic must evade the jaws of a rampaging ''TyrannosaurusRex'' (with horns). The game is based around Literature/ArabianNights.
* [[VideoGame/MOTHER3 Dragos]], which are a more or less friendly species of T-Rexes. The [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Mecha-Drago]] on [[UnwillingRoboticisation the]] [[CyberneticsEatYourSoul other]] [[ThatOneBoss hand...]]
* ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights2: Storm of Zehir'' allows Level 3 Ranger classes to automatically receive the 'Animal Companion' feat. Which is all well and good until you get to Level 5 or so, and you discover an optional upgrade: 'Dinosaur companion', which switches your animal to a ''deinonychus''. [[RuleOfCool Even if it will stunt your character growth, you just have to have it]]. Druids are allowed the same feature, given that they also receive an Animal Companion.
** There are also dinosaurs that can be encountered as monsters. While their inclusion is justified since the jungles of Chult are famous for them, they aren't important to the plot here any more than any other random monster. There are a couple of minor quests involving them though.
* ''SupremeCommander2'' features a ''[[NinjaPirateZombieRobot giant Godzilla-sized cybernetic dinosaur]] as an experimental unit.
* ''FurFighters'' had the characters discover a whole advanced society of Dinosaurs living under the surface of the planet. The plotline had something about the BigBad stealing the advanced technology and selling it for cash but it didn't really work out. Oh, and the heroes were on a popular children's TV show for some reason.
* ''VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures'', among the many other things that separate this game from the others in the ''Star Fox'' series, is set within a prehistoric planet inhabited by dinosaurs that can speak their own language (which Fox is unable to understand, but he eventually receives a translator from Slippy that allows him to listen to the spoken words in English). This planet is revisited in one of the missions of ''VideoGame/StarFoxAssault''.
* ''Franchise/MassEffect'':
** The [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy krogan]] are vaguely dinosaur-like. The first Krogan you recruit as a party member is even named "Wrex." The [[SpaceRomans turians]] are also described as resembling the link between dinosaurs and birds.
** In VideoGame/MassEffect3, a SideQuest provides salarian scientists with an alien dinosaur's skull. They clone it, Jurassic Park-style, giving your krogan troops dinosaurs to ride into battle. It's an OffscreenMomentOfAwesome as we never manage to ''see'' the krogan using them.
* ''VideoGame/ChampionsOnline'', being inspired by nearly every generation of comic books ever, has Monster Island - the western section of Monster Island is covered with raptor-sized "Teleiosaurus hatchlings" of various kinds, and the island is also home to the ginormous (30-40' tall) Teleiosaurus, a dinosaur egg several stories tall, and Mega-Terak - a ROBOT dinosaur.
* Riptor in ''VideoGame/KillerInstinct''
* ''PrimalRage'' is a fighting game with dinosaurs as playable characters.
* The ''VideoGame/{{Everquest}}'' games feature velociraptors, normally found in deserts and jungles.
* Take ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil'', but make the main {{mook}}s dinosaurs instead of zombies. You end up with ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis''.
* The Cera Terror and Tyrant Rex dream eaters in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts3DDreamDropDistance'', who can be friend or foe.
* In ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'', when Batman enters the museum Penguin is using as his base, he is almost immediately confronted by a menacing tyrannosaurus. [[spoiler: It's just a [[ContinuityNod robot]], though.]]
* Rimgal of ''VideoGame/StarGladiator''
* Learn Special Relativity with Velocity Raptor! She can run at 90%c! (Or more correct, the evil Professor Rex can reduce c to about the running speed of Velocity.) You'll soon learn that running at 90%c has certain [[BlessedWithSuck unwelcome]] effects...
* The "snappers" and "razors" from ''VideoGame/{{Gothic}}'' look like small T-rexes, only without any arms. The "biters" also resemble dinosaurs.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'' has mammoths and saber-toothed cats as part of the natural fauna.
* ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' has several reptilian creatures that aren't exactly dinosaurs, but are based on them.
* The "mastyxes" from ''VideoGame/{{Runescape}}'' are Stegasaurus-like creatures.
* The ''VideoGame/PrehistoricIsle'' series, which are ShootEmUp games with dinosaurs.
* This is part of the thrill of the [[{{VideoGame/ThemeParkWorld}} Lost Kingdom park]], which contains many dinosaur-themed rides.
