* NeverSayDie: The closest they get to discussing such things is pointing out when particularly serious afflictions could lead to engine failure if not treated.

Added DiffLines:

* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: if the new dinosaur attacking the heroes is a bright color, it's just a misunderstanding and they'll be friends by the end of the episode. If they're in metallic grays and gray-blues, they're just jerks.


On November 10, 2017 the show will be retooled into ''Dinotrux: Supercharged'', featuring the gang armed with [[Recap/DinotruxS03E10Battle Spark Bug Superchargers]] to power themselves up.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Literally; see above. Garby [[VisualPun shits bricks.]] Also, in the episode "Bridge", a "Where the Hell?!" could be heard. If you have good hearing, Scrap-It sounds like (though probably not actually) saying "Damn It!" when he screws up or get injured.


* LogoJoke: Revvit carves the DreamWorks Animation logo into a rock, with Ty and him fishing in the place of the boy.

** "Doom Run" outfits Ton-Ton with [[NitroBoost rocket boosters that consume explosive ore]] to make him go even faster.
** "Goldtrux" outfits Ty with all purpose battle armor featuring many gadgets such as a bolo launcher, a smoke screen, and an oil slick.
** "Cliffhanger" outfits Skya with claws, a pickaxe tongue and a back mounted grappling hook that can allow her to BuildingSwing to climb a cliff wall.
** "Magnodozer" outfits Dozer with a larger fin reinforced with spikes so that he can destroy rocks instead of just push rocks and a harpoon gun on his tail to pull tall rocks down.
** "Crabcavator" outfits Ty to function underwater, with an air tank, propellers, a fin on his tail and a harpoon gun on his tread.

Added DiffLines:

* SymbolicBlood: The only two instances of a Dinotrux suffering an injury that causes them to "bleed" are "Sawmetradon" where the titular Splitter cuts open one of Ty's oil lines with his saws and "Downshift", where Dozer blows a gasket fighting D-Structs and leaks coolant. The former is treated more like blood as Revvit immediately calls for a retreat to repair the wound stressing that Ty could suffer engine failure if allowed to bleed out.

Added DiffLines:

* YouAllLookFamiliar: Nearly every species of trux has a default appearance from which all members are just recolors of.

Added DiffLines:

* ButtMonkey: Dozer suffers this treatment in just about every episode. He complains about it frequently in ''Supercharged'', but even when it's not mentioned, watch some of the action in the background of fights/running-away sequences. He consistently gets smacked with more boulders than anyone else.


* ALizardNamedLiz: A large number of Dinotrux names are derived from the name of their species.
