Added DiffLines:

** "Agent Double-O Dinosaur", a parody of [[Franchise/JamesBond James Bond]] that features T-Bone going on a solo mission in Europe, complete with hidden gadgets. The other dinosaurs make only minor appearances, and T-Bone is forced to [[TeethClenchedTeamwork work with the Raptors]]... until they inevitably backstab him so they can [[HijackedByGanon overthrow the human villain]] and get the episode's plot device for themselves.


* CriticalResearchFailure: Though [[ScienceMarchesOn it wasn't very common knowledge when the show aired]], Pteranodons, of course, aren't dinosaurs and Stegosaurus did not live at the end of the Cretaceous. Also, [[RaptorAttack the raptor are depicted a la Jurassic Park rather than their real selves]].

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The plot involving the Raptors finding raptor eggs and trying to have them hatch in order to raise an army had the Extreme Dinosaurs steal an egg and trying to raise it as one of them, hoping this might result in at least one good raptor, with Spike being sceptic about the idea. In the end, [[spoiler:the eggs turn out to actually be ostrich eggs.]] While this twist is undiscutably [[CrowningMomentOfFunny hilarious]], no one can deny it would have been cool to have a [[TokenHeroicOrc good raptor]] as a new character considering all that would have involved.

** Argor Zodrak. He's the one who mutated both the Extreme Dinosaurs and the Reckless Raptors (who are loyal to him) but he's barely in the show at all.


* BizarroEpisode: "The Extreme Files". A crossover with of all things,[[Series/TheXFiles The X-Files]]. Pork and several other airplane passengers mysteriously disappear, Mulder and Scully get called up to investigate it. They suspect that Roswell and Pork might be in involved. They along with other FBI agents infiltrate Pork's home where the Dinosaurs are. Mulder and yes [[AgentScully Scully]] are surprised by talking dinosaurs actually existing. The dinosaurs and the FBI agents suspect Roswell scientist Becky Scarwell who in this series has a history with Mulder. Turns out that several aliens abducted the passengers as hostages in exchange for the aliens Scarwell has been keeping captive. [[note]] Even when this episode aired, Mulder and Scully still haven't seen actual proof of aliens in their series[[/note]] They free the aliens and the airplane passengers return to their seats. Oh and The Raptors don't appear at all in this episode. This event never comes up again in both series.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Ridge from the Colossal Dome two parter. He looked like he would join the team as the [[SixthRanger sixth dinosaur]], but he stays with the rebels and never appears again.

Added DiffLines:

* InvincibleHero: Considering the villains are raptors while the heroes get all the more powerful dinosaurs and pterosaur ([[TyrannosaurusRex T-rex]], [[HornAttack triceratops]], [[GiantFlyer pteranodon]] and [[BewareMyStingerTail stegosaurus]]), this is to be expected. To be fair, the Raptors can be a real threat when they go with a plan, but whenever it comes to direct confrontation, they tend to lose quite quickly.
