''Jurassic Fight Club'' (''Dinosaur Secrets'' in Europe) is a television documentary series that aired on TheHistoryChannel. The basic plot involves [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin dinosaurs fighting]]. Each episode usually has two or more individual dinosaurs fighting with one another over food, territory or mating rights. The show is "hosted" by paleontology expert [[MeaningfulName Dinosaur George Blasing]], who plays out [[SpeculativeDocumentary his own imaginary scenarios on how the fights would go]].

!!Provides Examples Of:

* ApeShallNeverKillApe: Averted [[spoiler:in the ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Majungasaurus]]'' episode.]]
* AnachronismStew: A mild case, ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeBirdlikeTheropods Dromaeosaurus]]'' and ''TyrannosaurusRex'' living together. However when the animators had to cut corners, they did reuse many CGI models that shouldn't belong in the time period the episode is set in.
* AnimatedAdaptation: Believe it or not. It's titled ''Dinosaur George and the Paleo Team''. George has uploaded the first (and so far, only) "episode" to his Website/YouTube account, in which his animated self travels back in time to encounter the downgraded CGI dinosaur models of this series. Further episodes are in DevelopmentHell.
** So, kind of the poor man's {{Chased by Dinosaurs}}, then?
* YouFailBiologyForever: Predators driving off potential prey over 200 times their size because they are territorial. Eh?
** Predators trying to drive off potential rivals by spilling food all over their territory. Eehh??
** Sharks using their denticles (scales) to taste. [[RuleOfThree Eeehhh???]]
* BadAss: Most, if not all, of the creatures here are.
* BearsAreBadNews: The [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals short-faced bear]] has an episode.
* BewareMyStingerTail: ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeStegosaurs Gastonia]]'' and ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Stegosaurus]]''.
* ContentWarnings: Every episode starts with this or something to the same effect (the last episode replaces "battle" with "apocalypse"):
-->"The following is a graphic depiction of a violent prehistoric battle. Viewer discretion is advised."
* EatsBabies: [[spoiler:The mother ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Majungasaurus]]'' eats her dead baby after the male majungasaur kills it]].
** A ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Ceratosaurus]]'' kills and eats a juvenile ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Stegosaurus]]''.
* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs
* FeatheredFiend: ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeBirdlikeTheropods Dromaeosaurus]]'' and ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Utahraptor]]'', though they were depicted as only [[SomewhereAPaleontologistIsCrying sparsely feathered]]. Also ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Deinonychus]]'', although it's shown with [[SomewhereAPaleontologistIsCrying no feathers at all]].
* FollowTheLeader: To WalkingWithDinosaurs.
** The [[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Allosaurs]] and [[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Utahraptor]] from both shows have near-identical color schemes.
* {{Gorn}}: What did you expect?
* GrandFinale: The show ends with the Cretaceous extinction.
* TheHunterBecomesTheHunted: The subject of one episode, which was appropriately called ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Hunter Becomes Hunted]]''. It centered around a pair of ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Ceratosaurus'' and an ''Allosaurus]]'' [[spoiler:with the latter killing both of the former]].
** Also the episode ''T.rex Hunter'' to some extent, where the offspring of the so-called "king of the dinosaurs" [[spoiler:are hunted and savagely attacked by a territorial [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Nanotyrannus]], with one juvenile being killed in the process.]]
* InfantImmortality: Averted [[spoiler:in the ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Majungasaurus]]'' episode]].
** A young ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Stegosaurus]]'' is also killed by a ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Ceratosaurus]]''.
* InsaneTrollLogic: Parodied [[http://albertonykus.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d349fdz here]].
* MamaBear: The mother ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Majungasaurus]]'' [[spoiler:until the male kills its baby]]. The female ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Tyrannosaurus]]'' also qualifies.
* ''{{Megalodon}}'': Fights against the biting sperm whale ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals Brygmophyseter]]'' [[spoiler:and wins]].
* NoisyNature: Holy ''heck''. Though Dinosaur George himself knows how unrealistic this is.
* PrehistoricMonster: The animals don't do much beyond fight each other and act nasty, but that ''is'' the basic premise.
** Besides, the program does refer to the dinosaurs as animals with behaviour similar to those alive today just as often as they call them monsters. After all, fighting for survival has always been a regular part of animal life. Admittedly, the fights in the show are unrealistically dramatized, but [[TropesAreNotBad how else will they get people to watch?]]
* RaptorAttack: ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeBirdlikeTheropods Dromaeosaurus]]'' and ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Utahraptor]]'' were depicted as only sparsely feathered, while ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Deinonychus]]'' is shown with no feathers at all.
* RecycledInSpace: ''Series/AnimalFaceOff'' IN PREHISTORIC TIMES!
* RuleOfCool: What the show operates on.
* ScienceMarchesOn: ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Majungatholus]]'' is now called ''Majungasaurus''. Some dubs use its proper name.
* SeaMonster: ''{{Megalodon}}'' and ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals Brygmophyseter]]''.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Albertosaurus]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals Arctodus]]'', the [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals American lion]], ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals Brygmophyseter]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeSauropods Camarasaurus]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Ceratosaurus]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeBirdlikeTheropods Dromaeosaurus]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeStegosaurs Gastonia]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Majungasaurus]]'', ''Montanaazhdarcho'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Nanotyrannus]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeCeratopsids Pachyrhinosaurus]]'', [[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeMammals steppe bison]], and ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeHadrosaurPredecessors Tenontosaurus]]''.
* ShownTheirWork: All of the talking heads.
** Larry Witmer's CAT scans of the dinosaurs' skulls, showing which senses were more developed than others in each individual creature.
** The skull of the show's ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Edmontosaurus]]'' is similar to that of ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Anatotitan]]'', which is probably an aged specimen of the former.
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: Rather than focus on a fight, "Biggest Killers" is an overview of the show's theropods, while "Armageddon focuses on the K/Pg extinction event.
* [[SomewhereAPalaeontologistIsCrying Somewhere, a Palaeontologist is Committing Suicide by Slashing His Stomach Open With a Dromaeosaurid Claw]]: When [[{{Meg}} Steve Alten]] is one of your TalkingHeads, you know you've got a problem. To be specific:
** [[RaptorAttack Naked raptors.]]
*** They did try to chalk this up to budget constraints, realistic feathers being hard to animate. Although some argue that since body feathers lay flush on their bodies anyway, they wouldn't have ''needed'' to make them look all fuzzy. Also, if one is making a CGI documentary over what are essentially birds, they really should at least try to get stuff like this sorted out.
** Wrong forelimb posture on all of the theropods.
** Giving a horn to a dinosaur that got famous ''because'' it lacked this feature.
*** Although some palaeontologists suggested this dinosaur had a keratinous horn.
** Depicting a young ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs T. rex]]'' as a downscaled version of the adults, even though even the narrator (correctly) claims otherwise.
** Overly long legs on the ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Majungasaurus]]''.
* StockDinosaurs: ''Tyrannosaurus rex'', ''Allosaurus'', ''Stegosaurus'', ''Ceratosaurus'', ''Edmontosaurus'', ''Utahraptor'', and ''Deinonychus'' (which is the dinosaur commonly thought to be ''Velociraptor'' by the general public) all appear in it.
** Strangely, ''Triceratops'' doesn't make an appearance, although ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeCeratopsids Pachyrhinosaurus]]'' fills much the same role.
* StockFootage
* TailSlap: ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeSauropods Camarasaurus]]'', ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeHadrosaurPredecessors Tenontosaurus]]'', and ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Edmontosaurus]]'' are all shown to do this (or trying to).
* TalkingHeads
* ThreateningShark: The ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeOtherExtinctCreatures C. megalodon]]'' episode.
* TooDumbToLive: ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeLargeTheropods Nanotyrannus]]'' sticking around after the [[MamaBear female]] ''[[MamaBear Tyrannosaurus]]'' shows up. Also, ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Ceratosaurus]]'' attacking ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Allosaurus]]'' instead of running away.
** The ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeBirdlikeTheropods Dromaeosaurus]]'' pack arguably qualifies as well, attacking prey over 200 times their size ''[[YouFailBiologyForever because they're territorial]]''. (Possibly subverted, as they somehow ''[[FridgeLogic succeed]]''.)
* TyrannosaurusRex: Appears in four episodes, including the series finale.
* ZergRush: The hunting style of ''[[StockDinosaursTrueDinosaurs Deinonychus]]'' and ''[[UsefulNotes/PrehistoricLifeBirdlikeTheropods Dromaeosaurus]]''.
