'''Basic Trope''': Pterosaurs are portrayed inaccurately.
* '''Straight''': The PteroSoarer is scaly and has a long tail
* '''Exaggerated''':
** The ''Pteranodon'' is bipedal, scaly, toothed, has a long tail, no crest, and eats people.
** [[AllFlyersAreBirds The Pteranodon is really just an oversized bird that does]] ''[[AllFlyersAreBirds everything]]'' [[AllFlyersAreBirds even remotely bird-like, from singing bird songs, perching on trees, and eating worms.]]
* '''Downplayed''': The ''Pteranodon'' is portrayed [[ScienceMarchesOn what people from the 60s thought they were like]].
* '''Justified''':
** The PteroSoarer is an undiscovered species.
** The PteroSoarer is actually a reconstruction from pterosaur DNA mixed with DNA from other reptiles.
* '''Inverted''':
** The PteroSoarer appears only in a dream sequence, and all other pterosaurs are accurate.
** A bird that behaves like a ''Pteranodon'' (AKA, a pelican).
* '''Subverted''': The PteroSoarer is a hybrid between a ''Pteranodon'' and ''Rhamphorhynchus''
* '''Double Subverted''':...but is still bipedal and scaly.
* '''Parodied''':
** Our ''Rhamphorhynchus'' tried eating a clam and all his teeth fell out.
** Alice always thought a ''Pteranodon'' is a cat.
* '''Zig Zagged''': The PteroSoarer is furry in winter and scaly in summer.
* '''Averted''': The ''Pteranodon'' is portrayed correctly.
* '''Enforced''':
** The ''Rhamphorhynchus'''s dentist is angry.
** AcceptableBreaksFromReality, where its accurate portrayal could have otherwise clash with the show's entertainment value.
* '''Lampshaded''':
** He is ostracized due to inaccuracy.
** "I could have sworn they look nothing like this!"

* '''Exploited''': He put it in a freak show and rip people off their money to see a 'real-life ''Pteranodon'''.
* '''Defied''': The PteroSoarer had plastic surgery to remove his long tail.
* '''Discussed''': ???
* '''Conversed''': ???
* '''Implied''': ''Pteranodons'' are extinct and are not seen, but its skeletal display seems to look odd.
* '''Deconstructed''': Climate change knocks out the niche of the PteroSoarer.
* '''Reconstructed''': ...but they lose teeth, become piscivorous, and grow fur, fit a new niche, and thrive.
