They have one unit called Fortress F99 consisting of orphans that pilot. With the Dinobreaker, a TransformingMecha that goes from vehicle mode to dino mode, they always get the job done. The show tells about their intergalactic adventures.˛˛----˛!!Tropes used by the series:˛˛%%* ABoyAndHisX: A boy and his robot dinosaur. %% Add more context to describe their relationship and what effect it has on them. %%˛* AnimeHair: Taken to an extreme extent.˛* {{Bishonen}}: Robert. He's quite vain about it too.˛* ButtMonkey: Gelato˛* ConspicuousCG: The hand-drawn stuff was by Creator/{{Xebec}}, the CG was largely farmed out to Taiwanese firm [[Creator/WangFilmProductions CGCG]], Studio Galapagos, Creator/StudioBihou (who also did the series' backgrounds) and Saruchin Company. It can get pretty noticeable at times, mostly with the outlines.˛* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: All of F199.˛* EmpathicWeapon: All the Dinobreakers seem to respond to their riders and can operate autonomously to one degree or another. ˛* EverythingsBetterWithDinosaurs: Dinosaur mecha!˛* HotBlooded: Jet Seigel the most, but a lot of other characters.˛* KidHero: An entire team of them.˛* ImmortalityField: D.I.C.E.'s [[TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness Body of Elders]] were looking for the gate of AnotherDimension called "Heron Universe" to gain endless life and youth, but they died before they can reach it. When the F-99 team visited it, they discovered that the natives of Heron indeed have immortality and it was given to them by the [[DomainHolder Immortal Pharaoh]] (so no hope there for the people of the other universe). In a subversion, it's implied that they remain immortal even if they leave as it turned out that [[MysteriousBacker one of their organization's benefactors]] named [[MiniatureSeniorCitizen Smyl Iri]] was a Heronian all along. Like the Phantom Knight, he aims to end the immortality of Heronians because he believes it causes stagnancy. The Immortal Pharaoh was then revealed to be [[spoiler:possessed by the Lumosword, a LivingWeapon obsessed with life. When [[TheHero Jet]] killed the Lumosword, the real Immortal Pharaoh was [[DyingAsYourself freed]] and [[MortalityEnsues regular time and lifespan]] returned to the Heronians]].˛* ImprobableHairstyle˛* LongLostRelative: Jet Seigel's brother Zack carbon-copies [[Anime/SpeedRacer Racer X]] perfectly - he [[FakingTheDead fakes his own death]], then returns under the guise of Phantom Knight, with only his driving skills cluing Jet (and the audience) in on who he is. ˛* PowerArmor: Not only that, but shorter team members get inserts that allow them to stand at a standard height alongside taller ones.˛* ShipTease: Between Marcia and Tak in episode 8.˛* StockDinosaurs: Each a different mecha.˛* TeamPet: Moke˛* ThoseTwoGuys: The glory-hounding fake DICE team, which gets into trouble a lot.˛* TransformingMecha: Each dinobreaker transforms from a vehicle to a dinosaur shaped mecha.˛* {{Tsundere}}: Puffy Angel towards Jet Seigel. She runs so hot and cold for him it's easy to see.˛* TyrannosaurusRex: Two mechas shaped like them.˛˛----
