The sixteenth ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' Direct to Video film. [[EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs With Dinosaurs!]]

When it is discovered that Shaggy has a condition that causes a HeroicBSOD with every scare, the gang decides to take him somewhere relaxing, La Serena Spa, the least haunted town on Earth. Of course, it would be boring if nothing happened but relaxation, so a giant ghost dinosaur is thrown in to shake things up. This strikes Shaggy into one of his break downs, so Mr. Hubbley, the owner of the spa, decides to take matters into his own hands with a little bit of hypnotism. Every time Shaggy hears the keyword, he is filled with uncontrollable bravery. The only problem is, Mr. Hubbley forgets the keyword. And to make matters worse, Shaggy accidentally hears it and goes all out on a biker gang at a G-Rated Pub, and agrees to race their leader on a motorcycle down Dead Man's Curve while he's brave.
!!This film provides examples of the following {{tropes}}:
* AccidentalMisnaming: Mr. Hubley often gets Shaggy's name wrong, calling him Scabby, Spanky, Saggy, Snacky and Snappy, in that order. He finally remembers his name when un-hypnotizing him at the end of the film.
* AcidTripDimension: A rather trippy one occurs while Mr. Hubley is hypnotizing Shaggy.
* ArtisticLicensePaleontology: ''Horned'' [[RaptorAttack Velociraptors with scaly skin]].
* BadassBookworm: As it turns out, [[spoiler: Winsor's computer animation classes came in handy when it came to creating the Phantosaur.]]
* BetterThanABareBulb: Like the two before it, this movie is very lampshade heavy and full of gags while still playing the ''Scooby-Doo'' formula and characters straight, making it (and the other movies) a kind of {{Reconstruction}}.
%%* BigDamnMovie: This movie definitely qualifies.
%%* BigEater: Shaggy and Scooby as usual.
%%* BikerBabe: Daphne. She's had experience driving motorcycles ever since she was a ''young girl''.
* BlackBeadEyes: Everybody. At one point, Velma says that she thinks Winsor's eyes are the color of sea foam green by moonlight. Cue a picture of Winsor on Velma's phone with black eyes.
%%* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Mr. Hubley.
%%* TheComicallySerious: Shaggy whenever he's in Badass mode.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: The doctor forbids Shaggy to get into the Mystery Machine. So what does Fred do? He paints over the letters to create the mustard machine.
* ContinuityNod: Freddy's JerkAss GPS returns from ''Abracadabra Doo.'' This time he gets them to where they want to go without nearly getting them killed.
* CoversAlwaysLie: I didn't know the Phantosaur drooled green... Or is that...? Ew!
%%* DeadpanSnarker: Daphne, somewhat surprisingly. Velma in some moments, though she spends a lot of the movie too lovestruck to make quips.
%%* DerangedAnimation: When Scooby gets hyper from drinking coffee.
* DinosaursAreDragons: The Fiery Phantosaur. Also, the velociraptors have horns.
%%* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs
%%* FanserviceCover: On the La Serena Spa pamphlet.
%%* FishEyes: Shakey Joe.
* DistaffCounterpart: Seriously, would you believe Winsor is not part of Velma's family tree?
* DramaticIrony: Mr. Hubley ends up forgetting the trigger word "bad" which makes Shaggy brave and return to normal, yet the audience already knows and the gang doesn't realize it until later in the movie.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Velma's on her date with Winsor, he ''really'' doesn't want to talk about the Phantosaur attacks.
* FunnyBackgroundEvent:
** Scooby provides these as usual. The bit where he gets hyped up on coffee even [[SubvertedTrope drags the rest of the gang into it.]]
** Fred and Daphne are in the foreground trying to figure out what to do next, not realizing that they keep saying the codeword that switches Shaggy into "brave mode." Meanwhile, Scooby tries to figure out what the word is from what they're saying by repeating the words they say (with Fred and Daphne occasionally thinking he's responding to them), [[EpicFail and manages to guess every word except for the right one.]]
%%* GeekyTurnOn: Velma and Winsor.
* HeroicBSOD: Every time Shaggy gets scared.
* HeroismIncentive: Scooby Snacks yet again. Scooby actually uses one to wake Shaggy from his coma via aroma therapy.
%%* HollywoodNerd: Winsor.
%%* HotScientist: Professor Svankmajer.
* HypnoFool: While Mr. Hubley hypnotizes Shaggy to make him brave, he ends up hypnotizing himself as well.
* HypnoPendulum: Mr. Hubley's equipment is much different than swinging a pocket watch in front of your face. The word that Shaggy needs to hear to turn into a serious badass happens to be "bad", but Scooby never realizes this until later.
* ImprobableAge: While it's quickly pointed out that it was photoshopped, for Scooby's Rescue Dog card to have been issued in 1969 as it claimed, Scooby would have to be at least 42 years old, which has never even come close to being reached by a Great Dane.
* InMediasRes: The movie starts with a mystery already having been solved, and the gang recounts what happened.
%%* KlatchianCoffee
* LargeHam: Brave Shaggy, as lampshaded by Fred.
--> "Is that part of the 'brave' thing? That you say weird stuff that sounds like movie lines?"
* LampshadeHanging: This film is ''very'' lampshade heavy even as it simultaneously plays things completely straight. In addition to others already pointed out on this page, there's this:
--> Freddy: "I think we may have this one wrapped up!"
--> Daphne: " Not yet. [[SarcasmMode You still haven't caught anyone in a net.]]"
--> Freddy: "[[SarcasmBlind True.]]"
** Also, the bit lampshading the villains' habit of confessing after being caught.
--> "Can you shut him up? I'm trying to confess over here!"
* LoopholeAbuse: Shaggy is forbidden to ride in the Mystery Machine by the doctor, so Fred paints over the word "mystery" to make it read "mustard", resulting in a rather odd name for the van: the ''Mustard'' Machine.
* LoveAtFirstSight: Velma and Winsor fall head over heels pretty much the moment they lay eyes on each other, especially Velma. Winsor at least needed a short conversation before it really kicked in.
* LikeIsLikeAComma: Shaggy as usual.
-->'''Shaggy''': I think I'm going to, like, like this place.
* LoveMakesYouDumb: Very much with Velma - it gets to the point where she can't even form full sentences once she sees Winsor.
* MindControlEyes: Shaggy's eyes briefly turn into spirals as a result of Mr. Hubley's hypnosis, every time he becomes brave and returns to normal if he hears the word "bad".
* MyInstinctsAreShowing: Scooby-Doo finds a dinosaur bone, which just so happens to be extremely rare. After Professor Svankmajer thanks him for it, he just buries it again.
* MythologyGag: Winsor's car has a bumper sticker that says "Been to Camp City", a reference to a location in the previous film "Camp Scare".
%%* NerdsAreSexy: One can say this about Professor Svankmajer.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero:
** Daphne [[spoiler:turns the paint-stripper back on, and forgets to turn it off, causing the mines to explode and trapping everyone underground.]]
** The ending, where [[spoiler:Shaggy has his hypnosis undone, only for ''everyone else'' in the gang to believe they're Shaggy, too. Even ''Scooby.'']]
** Also the instance where Scooby-Doo finds a rare dinosaur bone, and Svankmajor and Winsor are going crazy about it. Once they move on, Scooby buries it again.
* OutOfCharacter: Velma, after falling in love with Winsor. She initially had no interest in solving the mystery. [[spoiler:But she's more or less back in character when she learns of Winsor's involvement]].
* OverlyLongScream: Shaggy is screaming endlessly for almost ''three hours'' by the time the movie starts, after getting spooked out during a mystery at a haunted house. He manages to stop when the doctor tells him to, as he says, "people listen to doctors."
%%* PlayingWithFire
* PoliceAreUseless: The cops that show up when [[spoiler: the Fiery Phantosaur attacks town]] aren't much of a help. Of course, as usual, they show up at the end to cart [[spoiler: Professor Svankmajer and Winsor]] to prison.
* RaptorAttack: The second-half of the film has several(to the point where the film almost feels like an unofficial Film/JurassicPark sequel). [[spoiler:It turns out the raptors were the graduate students using stolen outfits from the dinosaur exhibit, though one wonders why they have horns]]
* RecognitionFailure: In a way. Mr. Hubley never gets Shaggy's name right.
%%* TheReveal: This movie actually does it a little differently.
%%* RuleOfCool: Shaggy. When he's brave, at least.
* RunningGag: Scooby spends the entire movie guessing random words to find Shaggy's codeword, usually way off base. When he finally does figure it out, nobody can understand what he's saying.
* SchrodingersCanon: Again, regarding whether or not the post-2010 movies take place in the same canon as ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated Mystery Incorporated]]''.
** The gang is stated to still be attending high school and presumably still live in their hometown, just like in ''Mystery Incorporated''. However, the classroom in Fred's flashback doesn't look like the classrooms in Crystal Cove High, and the town doesn't greatly resemble Crystal Cove. Though given the ending of ''Mystery Incorporated'', their different appearances can be chalked up to [[spoiler:the universe reset, but a problem with that argument is that the gang leaves Crystal Cove for college after the reset.]]
* ScoobyDooHoax: Mr. Hubley [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] the basic formula when he's talking about how he couldn't get more land to make the spa bigger.
-->'''Mr. Hubley''': Waddya gonna do? Dress up as some monster and scare everyone away?
* SeldomSeenSpecies: ''Massospondylus'' and ''Appalachiosaurus'' are mentioned.
* ShoutOut: At one point, Shaggy refers to his brave side as [[Film/TheIncredibleHulk the other guy]].
* ShownTheirWork: Fred points out the fact that hypnosis cannot make a person do something they normally wouldn't.
* SlipperySkid: Done to the raptors with a jar of marbles.
* SternTeacher: Fred's teacher says that since he helped recover the greatest dinosaur find in history, he'll bump his grade up to a C-.
* SnakePit: [[spoiler: When the main characters are trying to escape the mines when they are about to blow up, they find a pit of snakes they have to cross.]]
* ToiletHumor: When Shaggy is threatened by the bikers.
-->'''Shaggy''': And there goes the bladder.
* TookALevelInBadass: Shaggy whenever his hypnosis kicks in[[spoiler: also when the cave is collapsing and his hypnosis gets turned off and he finally summons the courage to save the day.]]
* WalkIntoCameraObstruction: With Scooby and a ghost elephant during the opening credits when the gang is being chased by ghost animals.
* WhamLine: Played with. When Shaggy is turned back into his regular self, he tells Fred that if he's going to jump to the ledge, he needs a movie line to say before he does it. They eventually end up with "When you say jump, I say 'How high?' ".
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: The mine snakes affected Velma the most.
