Despite being a hunting game, Carnivores has enough personality to warrant a characters page. This page should cover all of the games; Carnivores, Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Ice Age, Carnivores: Cityscape, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn; all the tropes of each animal's incarnations should be listed here.

    Dinosaurs 

The main quarry of most of the games, and often the most dangerous game. Since birds are evolved from dinosaurs, this list also contains the two Arctic Sector birds that appear in Ice Age.

Stegosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stegosaurus.png
Appears in: Carnivores, Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
The least dangerous of the non-ambient animals, Stegosaurus is a easy kill, and is often one of the first animals available to hunt. In most incarnations, it's senses are mediocre.

  • Acrofatic: Very chubby, but quite a fast runner.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Real Stegosaurus were nowhere near as harmless as the ones in the game.
  • Art Evolution: Received a very drastic redesign for Dinosaur Hunter HD and Reborn.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: Its design is based on outdated portrayals of the animal, including having sprayed forelimbs, a dragging tail, vertical tail spikes, and a shorter neck. Its version in Dinosaur Hunter HD, however, is more scientifically accurate except its neck is still too short.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • Took a Level in Badass: Becomes more dangerous like its real-life counterpart in Dinosaur Hunter HD.

Amargasaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amarga2.png
Appears in: Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
A mostly unintelligent, social herbivore, Amargasaurus was a newly-introduced sauropod for Dinosaur Hunter. It is the first official pointable sauropod, as Brachiosaurus only fulfills the role of an ambient animal.

  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Has a mostly yellow/orange color scheme with maroon spots and sprites.
  • Acrofatic: Despite being a heavy sauropod, it can run away from the hunter with no problem. According to Tatem games, it was meant to be slower, but was made fast for programming reasons.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Despite its impressive set of neck spikes, it's rather scaredy and won't even use them to defend itself.
  • Dumb Muscle: Described as "unintelligent".
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: The Dinopedia claims it to be social, but it's as solitary as the other dinosaurs in the game proper. It is likely that hunting a whole herd of them would have been somewhat confusing for the player.
  • Gentle Giant: A very scaredy sauropod that never retaliates even when shot.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Amargasaurus is not the kind of sauropod you'd see in fiction.

Ankylosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ankylos_3.png
Appears in: Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
Slightly more dangerous than the Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus are slightly harder to kill, due to the heavy armor. Despite this, they are still beginner animals. It's smell and hearing are good, but it's sight is rather poor.

Pachycephalosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_pachycephalosaurus.png
Appears in: Carnivores and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
Small and not very dangerous, Pachycephalosaurus are better in the sensory department, and can thus be harder to hunt, and don't fight back. However, they lack much in the way of defense, and will run if they hear gunfire.

Parasaurolophus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/paras.png
Appears in: Carnivores, Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
A large herbivore, Parasaurolophus is the first "hard" quarry; it's senses are quite good, and as such it's often able to smell you before you see it. However, like the Pachycephalosaurus, it will flee if it hears gunfire. This is only "difficult" because of it's high sensory abilities making it flee before you even knew it was there.

  • Adaptational Wimp: The true Parasaurolophus was a massive, bulky duckbill that could hold its own rather decently against predators. Here, it's portrayed as the usual scaredy herbivore that runs away at any sign of danger.
  • Animal Gender-Bender: The Parasaurolophus in the games are all male, as they all have long crests.
  • Art Evolution: Was given a more accurate redesign in HD and Reborn.
  • Four Legs Good, Two Legs Better: Unlike its real-life counterpart, the game version does not walk on all fours and is completely bipedal. Averted in Dinosaur Hunter HD and Reborn.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • Took a Level in Badass: Surprisingly, in Dinosaur Hunter HD.

Triceratops

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trikes.png
Appears in: Carnivores and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD
The first dangerous animal you can hunt, the Triceratops will not hesitate to charge at you if you shoot it. It will not flee from gunfire, instead choosing to charge at it.

  • Acrofatic: One of the chubbiest dinosaurs you'll find, but still a rather speedy runner.
  • Art Evolution: Was given a somewhat more accurate redesign for HD and Reborn.
  • Expy: Behaves much like a real-world rhinoceros, and won't attack unless you wound it.
  • Horn Attack: Of course!
  • Rhino Rampage: Can be best summed up as a reptilian rhino.
  • Put on a Bus: For Carnivores 2, both it and Pachycephalosaurus were replaced by Chasmosaurus and Ankylosaurus respectively. While Pachycephalosaurus has been re-added to the game's mobile ports, Triceratops has yet to be re-implemented. On the other hand, it did return in HD and Reborn.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • The Cameo: Can be seen in the menu art of Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter.
  • Warm-Up Boss: Being the first dangerous animal the player can unlock, this counts.

Chasmosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chasmo.png
Appears in: Carnivores 2 and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
Like the Triceratops, Chasmosaurus will attack only if wounded, and will otherwise run from the hunter.

  • Acrofatic: One of the chubbiest dinosaurs you'll find, but still a rather speedy runner.
  • Expy: Not only of a rhinoceros, but it's also obviously based on the Triceratops. As you may have noticed, they both share several tropes. In fact, the Chasmosaurus was made from the Trike's AI, which can allow players to swap this dino for the Trike rather easily.
  • Horn Attack: Of course!
  • Informed Species: Looks less like a Chasmosaurus (which had a longer, hollow frill and shorter horns as seen here) and more like a revamped model for Triceratops.
  • Rhino Rampage: Can be best summed up as a reptilian rhino.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Chasmosaurus is somewhat famous, but not as much as Triceratops or Styracosaurus.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: It's pretty much here just to fill the gap left by its bigger cousin.
  • Warm-Up Boss: Being the first dangerous animal the player can unlock in the sequel, this counts.

Iguanodon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iguanodoncdh.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
A dinosaur added to the April 18, 2014 update of Dinosaur Hunter, Iguanodon was first added as a pointable, secret ambient animal that would give points to the player when killed. Now, it's available as a huntable animal the players can choose.

Allosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/allosaur.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores, Carnivores 2 and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
The first predator most people are able to hunt, Allosaurus boasts an impressive sense of smell, but its sight and hearing aren't that developed. Plus, its rather low health makes it easy to bring down quickly.

  • Adaptational Wimp: While it can still kill and eat you, it's decidedly smaller and weaker than a real Allosaurus.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: There are plenty of things wrong with its portrayal. First, it bears little to no resemblance to the real deal, is rather small and its role in the food chain with Ceratosaurus has been swapped here.
  • Informed Species: Looks more like some type of 90's inspired dromaeosaur. Apparently, its model was originally intended for the Raptor, before the latter got an overhaul and this model was used to represent Allosaurus instead.
  • Mook: The weakest and most common carnivore, it will spawn even if players aren't hunting it.
  • Put on a Bus: It is absent in Dinosaur Hunter HD and Reborn. Interviews suggested it was going to be implemented in Reborn (apparently as a large, powerful predator like its real-life counterpart), but was cut out due to budget problems.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • The Goomba: The first predator the players unlock, the weakest of them all and the most abundant.

Velociraptor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/velociraptor.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores, Carnivores 2 and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
Smaller than Allosaurus, but faster and more brutal, hunting this predator requires good reflexes, very few missed shots and needs the utmost care to hunt. With good senses, high speed and small size, it's no surprise that Velociraptor is off-limits for novice hunters.

  • Adaptational Badass: Being based on the Jurassic Park raptors, this is a given.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Has striped skin.
  • Mascot Mook: It's present in the main menu of the first game and also shows up in the cover for the sequel.
  • Mook: Can show up even if you're not hunting it.
  • Primal Fear: It's small size and similarity to the harmless Gallimimus from a distance, in addition to it's high speed, leads to many being attacked from behind.
  • Put on a Bus: Despite its considerable popularity, it's absent from the HD and Reborn remakes of the game. There were plans for it to be added in Reborn, but unfortunately budget problems prevented that from happening.
  • Raptor Attack: Standard 90's pseudo-Jurassic Park fare. The only redeeming thing about it is possibly its portrayal as a solitary hunter.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • The Cameo: For Carnivores: Cityscape, it shows up in the game's cover and the disc art.
  • Underground Monkey: Shares the same AI as Allosaurus
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: While it behaves much like Allosaurus, it's faster, possesses some more health, it's more vicious in its attacks and will surely be the first predator to give you a hard time.

Dilophosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/c2dilophosaurus01.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn (unreleased)
A new dinosaur species planned for Dinosaur Hunter. It hasn't been released yet, but it's found within the game's files.

Troodon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/troodon4.png
Appears in: Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
A new animal for Dinosaur Hunter, Troodon is a slender carnivore with excellent vision that can spot hunters and preys alike from a large distance.

  • Adaptational Badass: It's larger and more fierce thatn its Earth counterpart. Albeit there were rather big-sized troodontids living in the Artic regions of Earth during Cretaceous times.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Is light green with orange stripes.
  • Informed Species: Lacks the famous "killing claw" most raptors are known to have, making it look more like a compsognathid of sorts. Even worse, its official art does depict it with one on each foot.
  • Raptor Attack: Lack of feathers aside, this guy is mistakenly represented without the "killing claw" most members of the dromaeosaur family were known to possess.
  • Stock Dinosaurs

Spinosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/spiny.png
Appears in: Carnivores 2 and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
Despite the ungainly appearance, large sail and rather weak-sounding calls, Spinosaurus is as dangerous as Allosaurus. This predatory animal has good speed and senses, and is slightly larger than the Allosaurus. It requires good skills, but is not as dangerous as the biggest quarry available.

  • Adaptational Wimp: Downplayed, it still can kill and eat you, but does have more health than Allosaurus and Velociraptor. It's smaller than the real Spinosaurus though. The September 2015 iOS update for Dinosaur Hunter did increase its size, however.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: New discoveries imply that Spinosaurus was a largely aquatic predator. This Spino, on the other hand, is differently proportioned and spends its time on land where it hunts other creatures.
  • Giant Mook: Pretty much a bigger, meaner version of Allosaurus and Velociraptor. Like those two, it can also spawn even if you're not hunting it. This is more evident in the iOS version of Dinosaur Hunter, where an update dramatically increased its size.
  • Idle Animation: Has the same walking animations as Allosaurus and Velociraptor, but will occasionally stop to sniff the air.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • Underground Monkey: Has the same AI and behavior as Allosaurus and Velociraptor, the only major difference being its Idle Animation.

Utahraptor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/utahraptor2.png
Appears in: Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
A big-sized dromaeosaur from the mobile port, Utahraptor boasts great speed, excellent sight and smell. It's rather ruthless in its attacking methods and does not get scared easily.

  • Artistic License – Paleontology: The real Utahraptor was a much more bizarre animal and didn't really look like an oversized Deinonychus.
  • Expy: The way it kills its prey is a throwback to the Smilodon from the third game, Ice Age.
  • Feathered Fiend: Albeit barely as it only has a small pelt on its head.
  • Fragile Speedster: It's quite speedy, but not very strong, yet it can still take some more punishment than the smaller Velociraptor.
  • Raptor Attack: As usual, it's portrayed as a huge, scaly beast with nothing more than a feathery mohawk on its head.
  • Shown Their Work: Its hands are not pronated (they face each other, rather than facing backwards), making it rather accurate in this regard.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • Underground Monkey: Is for all intents and purposes, a bigger and meaner Velociraptor.

Ceratosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ceratos.png
Appears in: Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
Introduded in Carnivores 2, this theropod is noticeable for the horn on its nose. Ceratosaurus boasts impressive senses and is strong enough to take a fair share of punishment before falling down. Furthermore, it is one of the largest predators on the planet, and one of the strongest.

  • Adaptational Badass: This Ceratosaurus is much larger and monstrous than its Earth counterpart, apparently having a case of insular gigantism. Subverted in HD and Reborn.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Its HD and Reborn incarnation has red scales with black stripes and a creamy underbelly. Mutant Ceratosauruses are golden with black or green spots too.
  • Animals Not to Scale: See Adaptational Badass above.
  • Art Evolution: For HD and Reborn it was given a somewhat more accurate redesign and a size closer to its real life counterpart.
  • Big Eater: In HD and Reborn, it will gladly eat the downed dinos the player has killed or tranquilized. This can be used to lure them, though.
  • Elite Mook: Very powerful and resistent, it's rather hard to bring it down and it's more challenging than all the previous predators you've hunted.
  • Idle Animation: Much like Spino and T. rex, it will stop in its track to smell the air.
  • Implacable Man: If you shoot it, the creature will storm at you from the other side of the island until either of you will die. Not as bad as T. rex though
  • Kick the Dog: Its HD and Reborn incarnation will eat any of the dinos you've shot down, which can be rather frustrating, but can also be used against it.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Very quick on its feet despite its size and bulk.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • Slasher Smile: Sports a rather chilling one that can make The Joker himself proud.
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: The first big-sized predator you unlock in the sequel, and one of the most difficult hunts.
  • You Are Already Dead: Unlike Tyrannosaurus, which roars once it spots you, Ceratosaurus gives no warning whatsoever, so when a Cerato sees you, it'll just suddenly spring towards you and chow on your dead body.

Carnotaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carno_0.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
Yet another new dinosaur for the mobile port, Carnotaurus was the second new huntable animal made for the game, after Utahraptor and Troodon. It is a very fast dinosaur, but has a hard time turning around, which players can exploit, and is also surprisingly skittish for its size.

Gigantoraptor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gigant.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
An incredibly tall, feathered theropod, Gigantoraptor was added along with Carnotaurus to the 2013 update of Dinosaur Hunter. This bird-like being may not look very intimidating at first glance, but its speed and hunger for meat make it a force to be reckoned with.

  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Has green feathers on most of its body with a blue stripe running down from its neck to its back and scarlet feathers on its head, arms and tail.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: While it does have feathers adorning its body, its arms are still incorrectly covered in them.
  • Beauty Is Bad: Gigantoraptor is a fairly beautiful, colorful creature, but is a ferocious hunter. Granted, it is not an outright villain, just a predator trying to survive.
  • The Big Guy: The tallest known theropod on FMM UV-32, but Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus are still larger and heavier than it.
  • Bright Is Not Good: Very pretty to look at, but also very aggressive.
  • Feathered Fiend: So very much.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Looks like a hybrid between a parrot and an ostrich at first glance.
  • Lean and Mean: Is very tall, lanky and downright ferocious.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Gigantoraptor moves very nimbly for its size, which is justified thanks to its slender built.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Gigantoraptor has not had much appeareances in fiction.
  • Shown Their Work: It is (mostly) accurately depicted with a healthy feathery covering on its body.
  • Stock Sound Effects: Its roars seem to have been modified from elk bugles.

Tyrannosaurus rex

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rexes.png
Appears in: Carnivores, Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
The biggest, baddest and most dangerous carnivore in the game. This theropod is the epitome of perfection; extreme speed, awesome senses, great size; the T. rex has it all. The only place any hunter could feasibly shoot to kill a T. rex in is it's rather small eyes.

  • Adaptational Badass: Up to Eleven. Real Rexes were pretty badass, but this guy has extreme senses, super speed, can climb mountains up and down and is perfectly fine with chasing you across a whole island just to get you. The HD and Reborn incarnation is tamer, but still quite dangerous on its own.
  • Art Evolution: Like many other classic dinosaurs of the series, it earns a more updated redesign in Dinosaur Hunter Reborn and HD.
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Only two known; the eye and the roof of the mouth. In HD and Reborn, shooting inside its mouth is a One-Hit Kill.
  • Big Eater: In HD and Reborn, it will gladly eat the downed dinos the player has killed or tranquilized. This can be used to lure them, though.
  • Boss in Mook Clothing: AND HOW.
  • Go for the Eye: The most known place to hit this tyrant to put it out.
  • Final Boss: The closest thing these games have to one, it's the biggest, most powerful of all the huntable dinosaurs, is often the last prey to be unlocked and you almost always fight it in the game's most difficult maps, where many environmental hazards or wandering dinosaurs can kill you as well.
  • Kick the Dog:
    • Once it's killed you, rather than eating you, it will swing your body from side to side and then smash it on the ground repeatedly.
    • Its HD and Reborn incarnation will eat any of the dinos you've shot down, which can be rather frustrating, but can also be used against it.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Running away from one is of no use, as this Rex is way faster than you.
  • Implacable Man: If it sees you, it hunts you down. Nothing gets in it's way.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The game's mood gets real dark when you get to hunt this guy, as any wrong movement could easily give away your position. Even worse, the Fort Ciskin map from the second game reveals that the titular settlement was brutally attacked and destroyed by one of these guys.
  • Roar Before Beating: Once it's seen you, it will roar loudly before going in for the kill.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: As mentioned above, a single Rex can chase you across an entire island just to get you.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: THE most famous and popular species of dinosaur.
  • Stock Sound Effects: The Carnivores T-Rex roars have become this over the years; for example, the Dino Crisis Tyrannosaurus uses them.
  • Tyrannosaurus rex: Obviously.
  • You Are Already Dead: If you weren't fast enough to shoot the Rex's eye while it was roaring, you are already dino fodder.

Gastornis/Diatryma

Appears in: Carnivores: Cityscape

Giganotosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gig1rtdstl.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Cityscape

    Mammals 

Exclusive to Carnivores: Ice Age and its ports, they appear in the Arctic Sector. It's worth mentioning that on FMM UV-32 all of them inhabit only the North Pole and live in a snowy tundra environment, while the prehistoric mammals on Earth lived in different biomes and regions.

Megacerops/Brontoteriy

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_brontotherium.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)
  • Rhino Rampage: Not a true rhino, but it closely resembles one.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": "Brontoteriy" was most likely a mangled misspelling of Brontotherium (an animal now synonymous with Megacerops).
  • Seldom-Seen Species: While brontotheres are among the more famous prehistoric mammals, its exact species (Megacerops)- not so much.
  • The Goomba: Despite its large size and fearsome horns, it's ironically the first and weakest animal you can hunt in the game.

Dire Wolf

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_wolf.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)
  • Canis Major
  • Early-Bird Boss: The wolf is the third animal to appear in the third game, and created as a challenge for beginners. Unlike the Brontoteriy and wild boar before it, this creature will start pursuing you once it detects you, and is quite fast as well. This will give you an especially hard time if you are armed with just a pistol, though once you get a shotgun it becomes much easier since the wolf is a one-hit kill.
  • Expy: Of a normal gray/timber wolf. Justified, since in Real Life dire wolves were basically just a bulkier species of regular wolves.
  • Kick the Dog: Rather than eating you, it will thrash you around like a chew toy.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • Savage Wolves

Wild Boar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_boar.png
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)

Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)

Paraceratherium/Indricotherium

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_indricotherium3.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (mobile ports)
  • Animals Not to Scale: It's smaller than its Earth counterpart. Strangely, its ingame bio says it's the largest mammal on the planet even though it appears shorter and smaller than the other large mammals like the Mammoth and the Yeti.
  • Rhino Rampage
  • Stock Dinosaurs

Doedicurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_doedicerus_roaring_2.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (mobile ports)
  • Beware My Stinger Tail
  • Holiday Mode: Originally had a Santa hat during the mobile port's Christmas release. A later update removed it.
  • Mighty Glacier: It's hilariously slow, however it can take alot of damage and its tail is a fearsome weapon. Justified since glyptodonts had large heavy armor-like shells and short legs.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • Wake-Up Call Boss: The introduction of the Doedicurus marks a point in which the game really starts challenging you, mostly due to its extremely high health (it takes five hits with a shotgun to kill it).

Smilodon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_smilodon.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)

Woolly Mammoth

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_mammoth.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)
  • Cruel Elephant: It will kill you at the first given opportunity.
  • Expy: Of African and Asian elephants.
  • Mammoths Mean Ice Age: Obviously. See below for more information.
  • Mascot Mook: Even moreso than the Smilodon- it appears on everything associated with Carnivores: Ice Age, in particular the boxart and the main menu.
  • Stock Dinosaurs

Hyaenodon

Short-faced/Cave Bear

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_bear.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)
  • Expy: A larger and meaner Ice Age version of the grizzly bear.
  • Bears Are Bad News: Oddly subverted, the bear is pretty cowardly, all things considered.
  • Flip-Flop of God: The games never specify if it's supposed to be a Short-faced, a Cave or another prehistoric species of bear.
  • Stock Dinosaurs

Yeti

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_yeti.png
Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)
  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti
  • Final Boss: Of Ice Age.
  • Four-Fingered Hands: Or rather three-fingered hands. For some reason its hands and feet are shaped more like a theropod's as opposed to a usual hominid's.
  • Kick the Dog: Once it's grabbed you, rather than eating you, it will smash you on the ground repeatedly.
  • Killer Gorilla: It resembles a white gorilla with red face, hands, feet and stomach (possibly covered with blood).
  • Knight of Cerebus: As the first "bonus" animal of the franchise, it remains a dark mystery until unlocked. After unlocking it, the Yeti is the scariest animal to hunt in the entire game, thanks to it's mostly-white fur and absurd speed.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Once a Yeti sees you, it barrels towards you.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: It stands out among the other creatures in the series, since it is based on a cryptid instead of an extinct animal from Earth's prehistory.
  • You Are Already Dead: You only need to get in range of it's long arms for it to kill you. And it moves ridiculously fast, so you may get blindsided by Yetis a few times.

    Ambient Species 

These creatures will not attack at all and are simply used as ambience to provide enrichment to the games' various areas. Since they are considered harmless to human hunters and are easy to kill, they wield no points.

Dimetrodon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_dimetrodon.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores 2 and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
  • Informed Species: It's got a smaller head and shorter sail making it more like the herbivorous Edaphosaurus. It does not help it has the same A.I. as Moschops
  • Misplaced Wildlife: Same deal as the Moschops.
  • Vegetarian Carnivore: Subverted. It is seemingly portrayed as a herbivore due to sharing the same A.I. as Moschops, but the Dinopedia clarifies that it's actually eating animal matter.
  • Stock Dinosaurs

Moschops

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_moschops.png
Appears in: Carnivores, Carnivores 2 and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn

Gallimimus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_gallimimus.png
Appears in: Carnivores, Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
  • Informed Species: Its HD and Reborn version looks nothing like the real animal, instead looking more like Compsognathus. Especially jarring considering the original games subverted this.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Incorrectly spelled as "Galimimus" in the second game.
  • Stock Dinosaurs

Pelecanimimus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pelecanimimus.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD

Brachiosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_brachiosaurus.jpg
Appears in: Carnivores 2 and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
  • Adaptational Badass: The real life Brachiosaurus is still killable, unlike the one in this game.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: The real Brachiosaurus would not spend most of its time in water like in the game. Plus, its tail would be held more erect. At least it nostrils are not on the top of the head for once.
  • Giant Equals Invincible: It' the largest dinosaur on the planet and it has nothing to fear from anything, be it predators or human hunters. Gameplay-wise, it is completely unkillable (even if using debug mode and/or hacks).

Dimorphodon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carnivores_dimorphodon.png
Appears in: Carnivores, Carnivores 2 and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
  • Ptero Soarer: It is always shown flying high in the sky, although the real Dimorphodon is considered to have been a poor flyer. It also lacks the vane at the end of its tail, and it's got pointy wing-tips. On the other hand, it appears to have pycnofibres (hair-like structures pterosaurs possess).

Pteranodon

Appears in: Carnivores 2, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn
  • Animal Gender-Bender: The Pteranodon in the games are all male, as they all have long crests.
  • Ptero Soarer: Anatomy-wise it doesn't look that bad, although it's got pointy wing-tips. However, its HD and Reborn version is misproportioned, including a head that's rather small.

Tylosaurus

Appears in: Carnivores: Cityscape
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: It is smaller than in Real Life and can swim in freshwater, while mosasaurs were specifically large ocean and sea dwellers.
  • Border Patrol: Presumably, they were meant to eat anything that wandered too far into the water. However, they are harmless to the player regardless if he/she is playing as a human or a dinosaur.
  • Carnivores Are Mean: One of the few aversions. Due to it being an ambient animal, it won't attack you.
  • Sea Monster: Averted in both ways. It is encountered in freshwater and it doesn't try to kill or harass anyone.
  • Sewer Gator: Some of them can be seen swimming in the city's sewers.
  • Stock Dinosaurs
  • Unexpected Character: Since the marine wildlife on FMM UV-32 is never fully explored upon, why and how it appears is unknown.

Pig

Appears in: Carnivores: Ice Age (including mobile ports)
  • Gluttonous and Messy Pig: Averted. It's a rather clean and well-mannered suid, unlike the wild boars.
  • Unexpected Character: Seriously, what is a domestic pig doing in an arctic region alongside Ice Age animals?
