    Mutant Dinosaurs 

In general

  • Adaptation Name Change: Although they are all (sometimes) classified as mutants in LEGO Dino Attack, only Mutant Lizards have "mutant" in their name. In Dino Attack RPG, all Mutant Dinos have "mutant" in their name to distinguish themselves from natural dinosaurs such as Chompy.
  • Amplified Animal Aptitude: They are definitely not Dumb Dinos. Although they are driven by primal urges to destroy, Mutant Dinos have shown themselves to be quite intelligent when they communicate. This causes no end of moral debates among Dino Attack soldiers.
  • Animal Jingoism: In the Director's Cut, the carnivorous Mutant Dinos and herbivorous Mutant Dinos would rather fight one another instead of hunting down humans. Not even XERRD's genetic engineering could overcome that basic instinct. There are herbivorous Mutant Dinos among the army in the final battle, but by that point Dr. Rex has used the Maelstrom to fully enforce his control over the dinosaurs.
  • Animal Talk: All Mutant Dinos speak the same language.
  • Animorphism: Some Mutant Dinos were actually humans who were mutated, whether by Mutant Dino DNA Serum or by Shadows experiments. The Anti-Dino Machine was created specifically to prevent this from happening.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: In the Director's Cut, Jenson suggests that this is the reason why the herbivorous Mutant Dinos are much rarer than the carnivores. The herbivores are nearly just as dangerous as the carnivores, but due to Animal Jingoism can never work effectively alongside the carnivores, leading XERRD to focus on the more efficient carnivores.
  • The Coconut Effect: Many inaccuracies regarding the nature of dinosaurs are intentionally preserved in Dino Attack RPG to accurately follow its source material.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Compare how hard it is to kill one Mutant Raptor versus an entire pack of Mutant Raptors.
  • Decapitated Army: The death of Dr. Rex basically negated the threat of the Mutant Dino army. Justified, in that the weapon that took Dr. Rex's life also killed the majority of the Mutant Dinos, and the death of Dr. Rex also cut off Baron Typhonus, the one compelling the Mutant Dinos to be destructive in the first place, from the LEGO Planet for good.
  • Elite Mooks: There are stronger versions of Mutant Dinos, including ESG's enhanced mutants, the Shadows' unimutants, and the Green Goo-exposed mutants.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Mutant Dinos are notably larger than their natural counterparts.
  • Evil Evolves: Various breeds of Mutant Dinosaurs adapted to the cold arctic climate of Antarctica, forcing Dino Attack Team to exterminate them ASAP.
  • Fantastic Racism: Mutant Dinos are subject to this, since natural dinosaurs always refer to Mutant Dinos as "abominations" and attack them on sight.
  • In Your Nature to Destroy Yourselves: The fate of Mutant Dinosaurs in the What If? story December 21, 2010, where they turned on each other and wiped themselves out after Baron Typhonus got the Maelstrom Crystal.
  • Keystone Army: All Mutant Dinos have Maelstrom in their bodies. Imagination is Maelstrom's only known weakness. Meaning, if you have enough Imagination...
  • Kill It with Ice: The Mutant Dinos are depicted as cold-blooded. Therefore, their Logical Weakness is cold temperatures.
  • Living Dinosaurs: Rather than being brought back from extinction, the dinosaurs were originally captured extant specimens from Lost Worlds such as Adventurers Dino Island, Dinosaur Island, and Adventurers' Island.
  • Mooks: The Mutant Dinos are usually serving a greater master, such as XERRD.
  • Mutants: The dinosaurs were mutated by XERRD experiments with the Maelstrom.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Although the Maelstrom drove their urges to destroy, the dinosaurs themselves were not actively malicious and more akin to confused animals acting on instinct.
  • Predators Are Mean: There are four main types of mutant dinosaurs (two of which technically aren't actually dinosaurs), all of which are carnivorous breeds. There have been no known sightings of a Mutant Triceratops, a Mutant Stegosaurus, or Mutant Brontosaur in the original RPG, although the Director's Cut finally introduced herbivorous Mutant Dinos.
  • Prehistoric Monster: The Mutant Dinos serve as the primary antagonists and are usually depicted as vicious monsters.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Mutant Dinos frequently have black and red scales.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Mutant Dinosaurs (which are portrayed as more similar to reptiles than birds in Dino Attack RPG) are the RPG's main antagonists.
  • Robot Me: Various factions, including the Dino Aliens and the Evil OGEL Empire, used robotic versions of Mutant Dinos as a Mythology Gag referencing the fact that the dinosaurs are sometimes implied to be robots in the original toyline.
  • Savage Spinosaurs: A Mutant Spinosaurus is only briefly seen in the RPG, but based on the fact that it could destroy a city bank, it's a lot more dangerous than its real life counterpart.
  • Slave Mooks: The Mutant Dinosaurs are first controlled by Dr. Rex and XERRD. After Dr. Rex is possessed by the Darkitect, they become more direct slaves of the Maelstrom.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: Given that this RPG is based on a LEGO Theme about dinosaurs, this is to be expected. In addition to the standard Tyrannosaurus rex, we have a generic raptor (similar in size and proportions to Utahraptor) and the flying reptile Pteranodon. The Mutant Lizards are never given a specific name, though in-universe scientists debate on whether they're Compsognathus or Coelophysis.
  • Tortured Monster: The mutation causes suffering for most Mutant Dinos, provoking them to lash out and give in to the urges to destroy. When Rex and Chompy discover Mutant Dinos who were recently mutated by XERRD, the mutants try to warn them to turn back so they won't get mutated as well.
  • Your Size May Vary: While their size is never explicitly stated, it seems that Mutant Dinos are depicted as considerably smaller than their LEGO Dino Attack toyline counterparts. For example, the toy Raptor is over twice as tall as a human minifigure, but the RPG's Mutant Raptors are implied to be closer in size to velociraptors from Jurassic Park.

Mutant Lizard

  • Acid Attack: Yellow-skinned Mutant Lizards can spit acid.
  • Adaptive Ability: Mutant Lizards have the ability to adapt, which makes the Xenon Multi-Mode Launcher an effective weapon against them since it can change attack modes on the fly.
  • Breath Weapon: Red-skinned Mutant Lizards can breathe fire.
  • Casting a Shadow: Black-skinned Mutant Lizards have darkness abilities, allowing them to cast a field of shadow blinding anyone within its radius.
  • Chameleon Camouflage: Green-skinned Mutant Lizards have camouflage abilities.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: There are many different breeds of Mutant Lizards, each with a different ability, such as camouflage, acid-spitting, and fire-breathing. The RPG assigns each breed a specific color, based upon their appearances in the LEGO sets and online game: green Mutant Lizards are camouflage, red Mutant Lizards are fire-breathing, yellow Mutant Lizards are acid-spitting, purple Mutant Lizards are stealth, and black Mutant Lizards are darkness.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: Red-skinned Mutant Lizards can breathe fire. Apparently, this is why Francis thinks that they're actually dragons.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, the Mutant Lizards' theme is "Ants!" from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
  • No Name Given: Unlike the other dinosaurs, Mutant Lizards are not identified by the name of their dinosaur species. There's some debate about this in-universe, with some scientists believing that they're Compsognathus, some scientists believing they're Coelophysis, and some scientists (including Dr. Rex himself) believing that they're a new undiscovered species of Living Dinosaurs.
  • Playing with Fire: The fire-breathing Mutant Lizards.
  • Stealth Expert: Purple-skinned Mutant Lizards have heightened stealth. Unlike the Chameleon Camouflage lizards, these ones are still visible, but they move so silently that they can sneak past Dino Attack defenses.
  • Super Spit: Yellow-skinned Mutant Lizards can spit acid.
  • The Swarm: Mutant Lizards make up the bulk of the dino army due to finding their strength in numbers.
  • Unique Enemy: Blue-skinned Mutant Lizards such as Sapphire are incredibly rare, to the point where no abilities have been officially documented for them. There have only been two confirmed appearances of blue Mutant Lizards, and one was just a mention of an off-screen autopsy. For all we know, both Mutant Lizards may have even been the same specimen.

Mutant Raptor

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: A Mutant Raptor's claws can easily tear apart a Fire Hammer, a military jeep designed specifically for combating the mutant dinosaurs and armored with 12 inches of cyber-titanium.
  • Barrier Warrior: Mutant Raptors have the ability to create Deflector Shields that protect them from nearly any weapon. Only the Cosmotronic Ray can pierce their shields.
  • Deflector Shields: The Mutant Raptors have force fields that can only be penetrated by Cosmotronic Rays.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: The enhanced Mutant Raptors created by ESG are capable of fire-breathing and flight.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, the Mutant Raptors' theme is "Vs. Zeta Metroid" from Metroid: Samus Returns.
  • Lightning Bruiser: In addition to Super Strength, the Mutant Raptors have great speed.
  • Raptor Attack: The Mutant Raptor is depicted as a vicious featherless theropod and is much larger than any real-life velociraptor.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: These vicious Mutant Raptors have red eyes.
  • Super Senses: The Mutant Raptors possess heightened senses to make them the ultimate hunters.
  • Super Strength: One of the Mutant Raptor's powers is its strength, strong enough to tear a Fire Hammer to shreds.

Mutant Pterosaur

  • Adaptation Name Change: A downplayed example. While they are officially designated as Pteranodons (matching their name in LEGO Dino Attack), they are usually referred to as the more generic Pterosaurs in the RPG.
  • Adapted Out: The Super Mutant Pterosaur, which was found atop the Tower of Eight Trials, was retconned into Canon Discontinuity and did not appear in the rewrite Love and War. It was still referenced as a Mythology Gag when Phantom tells Rex that Zero saw a "super Mutant Pterosaur" in the hangar on the headquarters' top floor, although he later reveals that there might not have been a super Mutant Pterosaur at all.
  • Airborne Mook: The Mutant Pterosaurs are the only Mutant Dinos capable of flight.
  • Giant Flyer: The Mutant Pterosaurs have a larger wingspan than any other (non brick-built) LEGO pterosaur to date.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, the Mutant Pterosaurs' theme is "Vs. Ridley" from Nintendo Land.
  • Lightning Bruiser: A literal example, since the Mutant Pterosaur's speed makes it hard to hit while it fires back with lightning bolts.
  • Non-Human Undead: Mutant Pterosaur skeletons were reanimated by the Skeleton Mummies.
  • Ptero Soarer: The Mutant Pterosaur bears more resemblance to a Wyvern than any real-life pterosaur. They are also sometimes referred to as Pterodactyls, even though that name is technically incorrect.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: These deadly Mutant Pterosaurs have red eyes.
  • Shock and Awe: Mutant Pterosaurs have the ability to shoot lightning bolts from their wings.

Mutant T-Rex

  • Breath Weapon: A Mutant T-Rex's mouth is a nuclear furnace that can disintegrate anything.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: The end of the Mutant T-Rex's tail is colored the same as its horns, teeth, and toe claws, suggesting that it is a hard stinger-like spike.
  • The Coconut Effect: Keeping with its source material, Dino Attack RPG intentionally misspells T. rex as T-Rex.
  • Cub Cues Protective Parent: Early in the RPG, Rex fell into a nest full of Mutant T-Rex hatchlings. They were not particularly dangerous... the angry mamma T-Rex protecting the nest was the real danger.
  • Elite Mooks: The X-Rexes are twice as large and have much more durable hides.
  • Eye Beams: Mutant T-Rexes have laser vision.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Whenever a Mutant T-Rex is about to use its laser vision, its eyes start glowing.
  • Horn Attack: Unlike the Mutant Raptor, the Mutant T-Rex's head crests are colored the same as their teeth and toe claws, suggesting that they are horns.
  • King of the Dinosaurs: What is a roleplay game about dinosaurs without the classic Tyrannosaurus rex? They are regarded as the biggest and baddest of the Mutant Dinos, a fearsome enemy that no Dino Attack agent should ever hope to encounter. Whenever one shows up, things become a lot more dire.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, the Mutant T-Rexes' theme is "Tank" from Left 4 Dead.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Mutant T-Rexes are said to be nearly invincible.
  • Pride: The Director's Cut notes that T-Rexes are exceptionally prideful creatures, even by dinosaur standards. Insulting one is a death wish.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: These dangerous Mutant T-Rexes have red eyes, especially when they start glowing.
  • Super Strength: Mutant T-Rexes possess massive strength, able to demolish buildings and bite through steel.
  • Trick Boss: During the final battle, a Mutant T-Rex wore silver armor as a decoy to distract Dino Attack Team, who thought it was the real Dr. Rex.

Cyrista's Bane

Originally designed by Dr. Matthew Cyrista under the codename "Promethean Knight" during his time working with XERRD, Cyrista's Bane is a cybernetically-enhanced Mutant T-Rex deployed by XERRD during the Final Battle.

  • Behemoth Battle: Took part in one against Dr. Inferno's robot mech.
  • Chekhov's Gag: The idea of a cyborg Mutant T-Rex was first brought up by Dr. Cyborg as a joke while he was riffing Dino Cop with Andrew, Joike, Pterisa, and Dr. Cyborg before the Final Battle. In the Final Battle itself, Cyrista's Bane showed up... and nobody was laughing at the joke anymore.
  • Cyborg: Cyrista's Bane is a cybernetically-enhanced Mutant T-Rex.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: After Dr. Cyborg defeated Cyrista's Bane, he convinced it to help the Dino Attack Team for the remainder of the battle.
  • Dual Boss: With Dr. Rex during the first half of the Final Battle.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Cyrista's Bane goes from fighting against Dino Attack Team to fighting alongside them.
  • It Can Think: Appeared to be a dumb beast at first, but slowly revealed itself to be intelligent.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, Cyrista's Bane's theme is "Forgotten Beasts" by razanak7.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast:
    • With a name like Cyrista's Bane, you'd probably want to stay away from him. Especially if your name is Cyrista.
    • Even before that, Cyrista's Bane was named Promethean Knight.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Cyrista's Bane is a Cyborg Mutant Tyrannosaurus rex!
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Just like normal Mutant T-Rexes, Cyrista's Bane has red eyes.
  • Shout-Out:
    • The end of Cyrista's Bane's tail is a Clawshot.
    • Its original name is a hard enemy from Halo 4.

Mutant Triceratops

  • Canon Foreigner: Like the other herbivorous Mutant Dinos, the Mutant Triceratops did not exist in the original toyline or even the original RPG. It was only added in by the Director's Cut.
  • Lightning Bruiser: The Mutant Triceratops can demolish through anything like a bulldozer, and it can outspeed a Fire Hammer.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: The Mutant Triceratops's horns can amplify its roars and bellows into sonic booms.
  • No-Sell: The Mutant Triceratops's head is Nigh-Invulnerable, completely no-selling all of the Xenon Multi-Mode Launcher's projectiles.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The Mutant Triceratops's red eyes make it all the more terrifying to have one chasing you.
  • Temper-Ceratops: The Mutant Triceratops behaves like a raging bull, aggressively chasing Dino Attack Team with intent to strike with its deadly horns.

Mutant Stegosaurus

  • Beware My Stinger Tail: The Mutant Stegosaurus's tail is covered with barbed spikes and can demolish an Urban Avenger in one swing.
  • Canon Foreigner: Like the other herbivorous Mutant Dinos, the Mutant Stegosaurus did not exist in the original toyline or even the original RPG. It was only added in by the Director's Cut.
  • Dumb Dinos: Unlike the more cunning carnivorous Mutant Dinos, the Mutant Stegosaurus is noted for not being especially intelligent.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: The Mutant Stegosaurus's plates are capable of generating enough heat to melt steel and concrete.
  • Light Is Not Good: The Mutant Stegosaurus's plates can glow so brightly, they're too intense to look at directly. This is your last chance to run before being cooked alive.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Thought a natural Stegosaurus's thagomizer was bad enough? The Mutant Stegosaurus turns it Up to Eleven and is covered with barbed spikes.
  • Tough Armored Dinosaur: The Mutant Stegosaurus makes up for its lacking intelligence with its sheer bulk, allowing it to shrug off heavy weapon fire.

Mutant Brontosaurus

  • Bilingual Bonus: The name "brontosaurus" is derived from the Greek words for "thunder lizard", tying into the Mutant Brontosaurus's Shock and Awe powers and thunderous footsteps.
  • Canon Foreigner: Like the other herbivorous Mutant Dinos, the Mutant Brontosaurus did not exist in the original toyline or even the original RPG. It was only added in by the Director's Cut.
  • EMP: The Mutant Brontosaurus is capable of producing an EMP that can disable all of Dino Attack Team's advanced technology, including radios, weapons, and vehicles.
  • Harmless Electrocution: A Mutant Brontosaurus being struck by lightning? No problem! It just channels the electricity into its EMP ability.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: The Mutant Brontosaurus can channel lightning into an EMP to knock out Dino Attack technology.
  • Mistaken for Quake: Invoked, if not directly played straight. The Mutant Brontosaurus's footfalls are heavy enough to cause the earth to tremor as if it were an earthquake.
  • Shock and Awe: Downplayed compared to the Mutant Pterosaur's own lightning powers, but the Mutant Brontosaurus can harness electricity and use it to generate an EMP.

    XERRD 

Dr. Ronald "Rex" Alexander

An 80-year-old scientist who kept himself young by overdosing on Jugend Serum, Dr. Rex is the leader and founder of XERRD, the creators of the Mutant Dinosaurs. After joining Paradox, he created a Maelstrom Crystal and founded XERRD to delve even deeper into researching the Maelstrom than even Paradox would dare. However, between his Sanity Slippage and the manipulations of Baron Typhonus, Dr. Rex delved into madness and soon led XERRD into the creation of the apocalypse itself. After a freak accident involving a body-switching machine, Dr. Rex found himself as one of the very Mutant T-Rexes he helped to create, but at the complete loss of his freedom, leaving him a mere pawn of the Darkitect, although he refused to believe that it was true.

  • The Ageless: So long as he is injecting himself with Jugend Serum.
  • All Love Is Unrequited: In high school, Ronald Alexander had unrequited feelings for Talia Kaahs, which she never reciprocated. He didn't know that she had her own crush on George Ogel.
  • Ambition Is Evil: A character analysis of Dr. Rex revealed that ambition is one of his tragic flaws. Every evil act he has committed, from kidnapping Talia Kaahs to starting the Dino Attack, was due to his driving need to always become better.
  • Bald of Evil: He went bald after injecting himself with Maelstrom, which is also when he became a mad villain.
  • Beard of Evil: Dr. Rex has a goatee.
  • The Beast Master: Until it was revealed that he was only a puppet leader controlled by the Darkitect, Dr. Rex was the leader of the Mutant Dino army, which referred to him as Alpha Rex.
  • Big Bad: The leader of XERRD and leading it to the creation of the apocalypse. He's also responsible for the creation of the Mutant Dinosaurs. Then he was Hijacked by Typhonus towards the end.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Even after 76 years of separation, Dr. Rex still felt Big Brother Instinct towards Katerina Schattenberg. However, this Big Brother Instinct was absolutely obliterated during the final battle thanks to Katerina renouncing him as her brother and the Darkitect goading him on.
  • Body Horror: When the Darkitect possessed him, tendrils of Maelstrom energy sprung out from every opening in Dr. Rex's armor, including the eyeholes, and constricted him for the rest of his life.
  • Breath Weapon: As a Mutant T-Rex. After Baron Typhonus's Divine Intervention, he upped the Breath Weapon to purple-tinged fire breathing.
  • By the Lights of Their Eyes: During the Final Battle, as a homage to Ganon.
  • The Chessmaster: Dr. Rex was, after all, the one who planted Cam O'Cozy along with some Maelstrom-infected bricks in Dino Attack Headquarters to create a violent feud between the idealist and realist sides of the team (simply taking advantage of a high period of tension between them at the time), with the ultimate goal of destroying the team.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: According to Mustache Maniacs Film Co. canon, Ronald Alexander's Dimension 418 counterpart passed away from natural causes in 2004.
  • Death Seeker: After being possessed by Baron Typhonus, Dr. Rex made it his one goal to die as quickly as possible. First, he unwillingly followed the Darkitect's orders, hoping that defeating Dino Attack Team would make Typhonus allow him to die. Then, when the Einstein Device was fired at him, Dr. Rex chose to Face Death with Dignity and did not attempt to dodge.
  • Demoted to Dragon: As a result of Baron Typhonus assuming a more direct role as the Big Bad.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Dr. Rex finally crossed this line after Katerina renounced him as her brother.
  • Don't Make Me Destroy You: Dr. Rex to Talia Kaahs.
  • Dual Boss: With Cyrista's Bane during the first half of the Final Battle.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: As with Rex, early depictions of Dr. Rex as a human minifigure depicted him with blue hair due to reusing Zed's head from LEGO Alpha Team. His hair color was cemented as black when later visual depictions showed him with the face of Jake Raines from Pharaoh's Quest.
  • Emperor Scientist: Lampshaded by the Downloadable Archive (as of version 2.1), which names his introductory chapter "The Scientist King".
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Despite all that he went through, Dr. Rex still had Big Brother Instinct towards Katerina Schattenberg, even up until the final battle. However, between Katerina renouncing him and Baron Typhonus goading him, the absolute obliteration of his Big Brother Instinct is what absolutely left Dr. Rex past the point of redemption.
  • Everyone Went to School Together: Dr. Rex went to school with Zachary Abody and General.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Rex.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Even compared to other Mutant T-Rexes, Dr. Rex's "Alpha Rex" form is very large, marking him as the biggest and baddest of them all.
  • Evil Old Folks: He is eighty years old despite his looks.
  • Eye Beams: He has laser vision as a Mutant T-Rex.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Dr. Rex willingly surrendered himself to the Einstein Device, believing that it was an appropriate death for his crimes against humanity.
  • Fate Worse than Death: Dr. Rex was unable to die due to Baron Typhonus's Divine Intervention. However, he was still on the brink of death and suffering terrible agony and pain from his wounds and the Maelstrom, compounded with the knowledge that he was the Darkitect's plaything all along. It's not hard to feel a little pity for him in this state.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Dr. Rex started off as a very gentlemanly figure, and even retained some of his Faux Affably Evilness in his early days as a Mutant T-Rex. However, the deeper he delved into madness, the less Affable he became.
  • Final Boss: Dr. Rex was the final major foe that players battled in the RPG, although Blaire Darkling became a Post-Final Boss to wrap up some loose ends.
  • Freudian Excuse: Dr. Rex was separated from his sister at a very early age, scarring the young boy for life.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: His own sister calls him out, declaring that his Freudian Excuse completely fails to justify the atrocities of the Dino Attack.
    Katerina Schattenberg: And you cried out that you would 'fix the world' so that no family need ever be separated again. And what a FINE JOB you have done!
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Dr. Ronald Alexander was just an ordinary scientist who grew up in the Great Depression. He would one day become Dr. Rex, the monstrous and maddened Mutant T-Rex who leads the Maelstrom's forces in the apocalypse itself.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: His first true act of evil was kidnapping Talia Kaahs on her wedding day out of jealousy.
  • Guttural Growler: In his Mutant T-Rex form, his voice became deeper and more guttural to fit his bestial appearance.
  • The Heavy: He appears to be solely responsible for the Dino Attack until the Adventurers' Island mission.
  • Heel Realization: It's debatable, but after nearly being killed by a High-Voltage Half-Track, Dr. Rex might have had one. Rex, at least, was trying to invoke this trope by drawing out Dr. Rex's death long enough for him to reflect upon all the pain and suffering that he caused when he created the Dino Attack. It's also worth noting that Dr. Rex did not want to continue the fight when he was possessed by the Darkitect and allowed himself to be killed by the Einstein Device, though how much of this was affected by a Heel Realization versus affected by being a Death Seeker is unknown.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Two examples by Dr. Rex in the Final Battle. First, he wore armor fashioned from silge metal, which is completely invincible... but, like all metal, is a high electrical conductor, allowing Adventure to deal a particularly-excruciating almost-death blow upon Dr. Rex with his High-Voltage Half-Track. Then, the Maelstrom experiments he performed plus his self-induced Mutant Dino mutation allowed the Darkitect to take control of his body, giving him a Fate Worse than Death.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Despite once having a human body, Dr. Rex had no qualms about eating people once he became a Mutant T-Rex.
  • If I Can't Have You...: After being rejected by Talia Kaahs, he kidnapped her and put her in stasis, robbing George Ogel of his wedding. During the Dino Attack, Talia was freed and renounced Dr. Rex, at which point he declared her to be his enemy and tried to kill her.
  • Ignored Epiphany: After learning what happened in the Maelstrom Temple, particularly the Darkitect's true purposes for the Dino Attack, Dr. Rex remains in complete denial about it, instead remaining unrepentant and unyielding in his plans for the Dino Attack.
  • Immortality Begins at Twenty: Dr. Rex began injecting himself with Jugend Serum when he was 27 years old.
  • Immortality Seeker: One of the few qualities shared by Dr. Rex and Katerina Schattenberg; neither of them cared to suffer the ravages of age if they could avoid it.
  • Implacable Man: Between his silge armor and Baron Typhonus's Divine Intervention, Dr. Rex was essentially invincible during the Final Battle.
  • Insane = Violent: Once Dr. Rex's sanity really started to go off the deep end, he became increasingly violent.
  • It Runs in the Family: The Alexander family has an aversion to aging, which is one of the few things that Dr. Rex and Katerina Schattenberg have in common.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Dr. Rex always was losing his mental stability, but at a very slow rate. Through the Darkitect's manipulation and the Dino Attack, he's really lost it in the past few months.
  • Killed Off for Real: Dr. Rex is killed by the Einstein Device at the end of the final battle.
  • King of the Dinosaurs: Upon becoming a Mutant T-Rex, Dr. Rex cemented himself as a fearsome, terrifying, powerful villain who would eventually become the RPG's Final Boss. More literally, he also became known as "Alpha Rex" in this form by asserting himself as the supreme leader of the Mutant Dinos. Truly, he's deserving of the title "Tyrant Lizard King".
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Dr. Rex wears a labcoat, showing his status as a scientist.
  • Leitmotif: Dr. Rex is one of the few characters to have an original theme song composed for him by PeabodySam. However, in the Complete Soundtrack playlist, Dr. Rex's theme is "The Heart of Davy Jones" from Pirates Ofthe Caribbean: Soundtrack Treasures Collection.
  • A Lizard Named "Liz": Dr. Rex is a T-Rex, though he coincidentally had the nickname "Dr. Rex" long before he became a T-Rex.
  • Mad Scientist: Dr. Rex may be a brilliant scientist, but he's also clearly insane enough to think that creating a Maelstrom-empowered Mutant Dino apocalypse is going to save the world.
  • The Man Behind the Monsters: This is the man behind the Mutant Dinosaur outbreak.
  • Meaningful Name: He's a scientist who works with dinosaurs and ultimately becomes one himself.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: Convinced that humanity is corrupt, Dr. Rex plans to use the Dino Attack to wipe the slate clean and rid the LEGO Universe of the worst of mankind.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: With a name like Doctor Ronald "Rex" Alexander, stay far away from him.
  • Necessarily Evil: Dr. Rex most likely knew that dooming his species to extinction would be an act considered "evil", but in his delusions caused by the Darkitect's manipulations, he believed that this was for the greater good.
  • Nerd in Evil's Helmet: When he hacked the wiki, Dr. Rex revealed that he is a big fan of Star Wars and often finds himself unintentionally quoting the movies in his speech. This was a Lampshade Hanging of certain scenes where his dialogue references Star Wars.
  • Older Than They Look: Really 80 years old, looks only 27.
  • The Paragon Always Rebels: While Dr. Rex was never really a Paragon, he was the first member of XERRD to fall victim to Baron Typhonus's grand scheme, and the rest of XERRD followed suit.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As a Mutant T-Rex, Dr. Rex has red eyes.
  • Reluctant Psycho: He realized that he was falling into madness, but at a time where he tragically thought it was too late to do anything about it.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: First, he created Mutant Dinos, and then he became one himself.
  • Retconning the Wiki: In the April Fools' Day 2010 prank, Dr. Rex hacked the Dino Attack RPG wiki and changed it to a XERRD propaganda website, making sure to emphasize how sympathetic he is and how evil Dino Attack Team really is.
  • Sanity Slippage: His sanity has been slowly slipping for over fifty years before being rapidly accelerated in recent times.
  • Scaled Up: Dr. Rex became a Mutant T-Rex. Okay, so it's not a snake, but dinosaurs are usually considered reptiles, so it's close enough.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Dr. Rex's silge armor is covered with these.
  • Start of Darkness: The separation of Ronald and Catherine Alexander in their early childhoods can be pinpointed as the exact moment of Dr. Rex's Start of Darkness.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: Although it was not his real name, Ronald Alexander loved going by his nickname Dr. Rex in high school. Who would have ever guessed that he would not only be a scientist, but also a T-Rex one day?
  • Sympathy for the Devil: After the Darkitect's Divine Intervention granted Dr. Rex a Fate Worse than Death, many Dino Attack agents felt pity towards Dr. Rex. Even Rex, who moments prior proclaimed that Dr. Rex deserved to die a slow and painful death, realized that no one, not even Dr. Rex, deserved the terrible fate he met.
  • They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!: In the Director's Cut, Dr. Rex is very insistent upon being called "Dr. Rex". This is more so for convenience to help distinguish him from agent Rex.
  • Tin Tyrant: How about Tin Tyrant Lizard King? Dr. Rex goes into battle in full armor, complete with Spikes of Villainy.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Really, Dr. Rex? You were a Space Marauder, you should know more about the Maelstrom than most people. What do you do? Inject yourself with traces of Maelstrom. Seriously?
  • Tortured Monster: After Baron Typhonus's Divine Intervention, which left him perpetually in a Fate Worse than Death. He wanted nothing more than to die, but was left with no choice but to continue battling Dino Attack Team.
  • Tragic Villain: Dr. Rex, especially after the revelations of his Maelstrom experiment and his recent realization that he is merely the Darkitect's plaything. He knew that he was plunging into madness, but he was too late to stop it.
  • Turns Red: Turns Purple, actually; Dr. Rex when his body became possessed by the Maelstrom after being seemingly defeated by Adventure.
  • Two First Names: Ronald's real surname is Alexander.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Dr. Rex gets uncontrollably violent whenever angered.
  • Villain's Dying Grace: As confirmed by the wiki and Director's Cut, Baron Typhonus tried to make Dr. Rex dodge the Einstein Device. However, despite being enslaved to the Darkitect and becoming his possessed puppet, Dr. Rex deliberately resisted the Darkitect's orders and calmly accepted death, knowing that it would finally put an end to all the death and destruction that he caused.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Dr. Rex, over the course of the RPG. As Dino Attack Team repeatedly gets in his way over the course of the war, he's gone from a gentlemen-like scientist with misguided goals to a maddened monster who destroys everything in his path.
  • Was Once a Man: The fact that what was once a gentleman-like scientist had degraded to the state of a wild, ferocious monster was a theme frequently commented upon during the Final Battle.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: He really jumped off the slippery slope after becoming a powerful Mutant T-Rex.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Behind the mad scientist-turned-dinosaur is a sad, lonely man who has suffered unbearable loss and never learned to cope with it.

Dr. Michelle Glados

  • Alcoholic Parent: Her father, David Johnson Glados, was a drunk and abusive man.
  • Cold Sniper: She is a cold, efficient sniper... armed with a rocket launcher.
  • Creepy Monotone: Michelle Glados always speaks in an emotionless voice, which makes the horrifying things she says all the more creepy.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Michelle Glados is described as having dark circles under her eyes like an insomniac, which only highlights her creepiness.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Everything she says is in a deadpan emotionless voice, including the occasional snarky joke.
  • Dirty Coward: Glados isn't afraid of using her portal device to teleport to safety in the face of danger, even being willing to leave Carolyne Provencal to her doom. However, unlike most Dirty Cowards, she isn't afraid to fight or get her hands dirty.
  • Dual Boss: With Carolyne Provencal in the Maelstrom Temple.
  • The Dragon: After Wallace Bishop was revealed to be Frank Einstein in disguise, Michelle Glados became Dr. Rex's new second-in-command and took a much more active role in battling Dino Attack Team than her predecessor.
  • Emotionless Girl: Michelle believes that emotion is weakness, and so she suppresses them at all times.
  • Expy: As her name would imply, Michelle Glados combines the appearance of Chell and the personality of GLaDOS.
  • For Science!: Michelle Glados was never really interested by Dr. Rex's claims of "destiny". She just wanted to see how the LEGO Planet population would behave in the event of an apocalypse. You know, For Science!
  • Freudian Excuse: Michelle Glados's mother died in childbirth, her father was often drunk and abusive, and she grew up without any friends.
  • Freudian Excuse Is No Excuse: Frank Einstein calls Michelle Glados out on this. He acknowledges that she had a sad, lonely childhood, but then states that it was her own choice to become a bitter, unlikeable loner willing to commit mass genocide.
  • Friendless Background: Michelle Glados literally had no friends, which ultimately led to her becoming a bitter loner.
  • If My Calculations Are Correct: Said by Michelle Glados during the final battle, regarding Dino Attack Team's chances of winning.
  • Ignored Epiphany: Unlike most of XERRD, Michelle Glados doesn't care that the Darkitect is using the Dino Attack to destroy the LEGO Planet and instead uses it as an opportunity to conduct more inhumane experiments.
  • The Insomniac: Suggested by her Creepy Shadowed Undereyes.
  • Killed Off for Real: She was killed by Trouble during the final battle.
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: Michelle Glados wears a labcoat, showing her status as a scientist.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, Glados's theme is "You Know Her?" from Portal 2.
  • Mad Scientist: Don't let her tranquility fool you. Based on her notions on what can be done in the name of science, she is very much mad.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: Michelle Glados while reiterating her belief that emotion is weakness, then proving her point by killing Amanda.
    Michelle Glados: "Emotion. Makes. You. Weak."
  • More Deadly Than the Male: Michelle Glados, one of XERRD's few named female scientists, has a high body count thanks to her neurotoxins, rocket launcher, and other weapons, and she was perfectly willing to doom the entire planet for her little science experiment.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: She's a Doctor. Besides, you'd probably want to stay away from anyone named after GLaDOS.
  • Not So Stoic: Under great stress, Michelle Glados will break character and show her true emotions.
  • Sadist: Although she doesn't show it, she clearly finds sick pleasure in the suffering of others.
  • Shut Up, Kirk!: After Rex gave Michelle Glados a Kirk Summation, explaining why her lack of emotion was not a strength, she reiterated her claim that emotion is a weakness and then proceeded to drive the point home by shooting Amanda.
  • The Stoic: Michelle Glados is reputed as the "master stoic", and anyone who can get under her skin to cause her to show real emotion takes great pride in the ability.
  • Straw Vulcan: She considers herself to be the perfect scientist because she does not dilute her "logic" with "weaknesses" such as emotion, allowing Rex to deliver a "The Reason You Suck" Speech about how Glados's lack of emotion is a weakness in itself.
    Michelle Glados: "I do not feel disturbed at all. I do not feel remorse, I do not feel pity, I do not feel compassion. I feel... nothing. I am the perfect scientist, you see, because I have the clearest mind of all, for my judgment and my actions are never hindered by weaknesses such as emotion."
  • Teleport Spam: Michelle Glados uses this with Carolyne Provencal against Zachary, Minerva, and Dr. Cyborg.
  • Tranquil Fury: Starts off like this, though the tranquility may be eventually stripped away by a Villainous Breakdown.
  • Villain Ball: Michelle Glados could have easily killed Rex if she just stopped talking and just shot him already. And when Trouble got back up, rather than shooting Rex first and then paying attention to Trouble, Glados forgot about Rex and tried to shoot Trouble instead, leading to her own death and Rex's survival.
  • Villainous Breakdown: A minor one in Michelle Glados's final moments, visible in the fact that she broke character and started acting Not So Stoic.
  • You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me!: Glados said this as a Shout-Out to Portal 2 when she saw that Trouble was still alive.

Dr. Solomon Koplowitz

Oswald Fabello

Minerva Fabello's oldest brother who raised her for most of her life due to their parents being unable to do so. After the Dino Attack began, he joined the Dino Attack Team and on his first mission, was captured by XERRD, who toyed with with his fragile sanity until he joined them as an armed guard. Needless to say, finding out his sister joined the Dino Attack Team led to some conflict.

Dr. Carolyne Provencal

Blaire Darkling / Matthew Vherestorm

A former assassin and terrorist who attempted to atone for his crimes by joining the Nexus Force. He was enlisted by XERRD and commanded their security personel and helped bring about the Dino Attack. Only in the Final Battle did he that XERRD was the exact opposite of what he needed to atone from his crimes.

Dr. Strangebrick

Dr. Paulie Gonepus

A scientist who experiments with Maelstrom energy, Paulie Gonepus is notable for his mechanical Combat Tentacles and his Maelaser device.

Dr. Walter Breen

  • Affably Evil: He acts very professional and polite towards Dino Attack Team.
  • Ambition Is Evil: He is always seeking a higher position, whether it's rising to CEO of Brick League United, running for mayor of World City, or becoming The Face of XERRD.
  • Characterization Marches On: When first introduced, Dr. Breen seemed to be one of XERRD's more reasonable members, being unwilling to leave his fellow scientists for death. The battle for the Maelstrom Temple, as well as insight into his backstory, developed him into a Dirty Coward instead.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Especially during his days as administrator of Brick League United. Even after he left the company, he retained many traits of a Corrupt Corporate Executive.
  • Dirty Coward:
    • During the battle for the Maelstrom Temple, Walter Breen tried to sneak away while using Kate Bishop as a Human Shield.
    • When he hired Silencia Venomosa, unlike many of her other employers, he refused to meet her in person. Bartholomew Enderson called him out on killing Edward Korrupte without having the courage to even look at the weapon he was using.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Dr. Breen seemed opposed to the idea of abandoning XERRD Fortress and leaving the lower-ranking scientists for death. At the time, anyways. It was later stated that he was more concerned about Dr. Rex's reaction than he was for the lives of the other scientists.
  • Expy: Of Wallace Breen.
  • The Face: Of XERRD. Despite his scientist background, this was specifically the reason why Dr. Breen was recruited by Dr. Rex.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: In the middle of claiming that Wallace Bishop would never hurt him, he is shot and killed by Bishop.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: He's a Doctor. Besides, you'd probably want to stay away from anyone named after Wallace Breen.
  • Smug Snake: Walter Breen is confident that his high-ranking status in XERRD gives him the authority to boss everyone around and act like he's the one in charge, and remains smug and arrogant through it all. In return, his fellow XERRD scientists despise him and, at one point, even shoot missiles at him just to get him to shut up.
  • Sudden Name Change: When first introduced in Dino Attack RPG, his name was Wallace Breen. It was changed to Walter Breen in At War's End to make it a little different from his namesake.
  • Sycophantic Servant: Breen's greatest fear was doing something that would anger Dr. Rex, and he reportedly got his high position in XERRD by kissing up to Dr. Rex.

Dr. Zed Provhezor

Jennifer Strangebrick

  • Characterization Marches On: When Jenny first appeared, she was described as being "slightly older than Kate". Given that Kate is 18, that would have put Jenny around 19-20. Later posts implied her to be younger, around 12-14.
  • First-Name Basis: Since her father is generally referred to as Strangebrick, Jenny is almost always called by her given name.
  • Mad Scientist's Beautiful Daughter: As confirmed by the revelation of her last name, Jenny is Dr. Strangebrick's daughter.
  • The Quiet One: Jenny hasn't exactly said much, although considering she was raised by XERRD, the main enemy of the Dino Attack Team, it is probably at least partially out of fear.
  • Teen Genius: Jenny. Justified in that she was raised by a XERRD scientist and spent her childhood working as an assistant.
  • Tender Tears: Poor Jenny was too scared to talk when being "interrogated" by Rotor, and couldn't do much else besides cry. The only thing that made it worse was that her crying only gave Rotor something else to laugh at and may have prompted him to make the beatings even worse.

Ingrid Tromsø

Dr. Alvin Gadd

Dr. Robert Nicholas

Dr. Jecht "Landro" Raptor

An esteemed scientist who went mad after a freak accident turned him into a half-man, half-dino hybrid.

  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the original RPG, Landro was coherent and cunning. In the Director's Cut, he is an insane madman who seems to be babbling nonsense.
  • Adaptation Species Change: In the original RPG, Landro was an alien. In the Director's Cut, he is a Half-Human Hybrid, with Mutant Dino being the other half as a result of a freak accident.
  • And Your Little Dog, Too!: In the Director's Cut, Landro threatening Bailey (who is just an ordinary dog in this version of the story) comes across as a petty threat towards Sereve's pet.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Landro, the main villain of Rev Raptor's storyline, is Rev's father.
  • Beard of Evil: This villain is depicted with a beard in the Director's Cut trailer.
  • The Determinator: In the Director's Cut, he breaks through an electric fence with nothing more than his mutant durability and his own determination.
  • Driven to Madness: The freak accident that mutated him caused Landro to go insane.
  • Dying as Yourself: In the Director's Cut, what little remains of Jecht underneath Landro's madness comes forward in his final moments.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: This villain is depicted with a pair of nasty facial scars in the Director's Cut trailer.
  • Guttural Growler: Landro's chuckle, heard in the Director's Cut trailer, is taken from Jecht's low gravelly voice.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: He retains his humanoid figure but now possesses features of Mutant Dinos.
  • Infallible Babble: In the Director's Cut, the "jewel of Sentarie 9" mentioned by Landro is replaced with the "crystal of Crux", and he also mentions chaos, destruction, and "the architect of darkness", providing one of the earliest clues to the Mutant Dinos' true origins in his insane ramblings.
  • Insane = Violent: His madness leads him to murder Sereve and Rev out of the misplaced belief that they knew about the Maelstrom Crystal.
  • Labcoat of Science and Medicine: In the Director's Cut, Landro wears the tattered remains of a labcoat, one of the last remaining clues to his original identity as the esteemed scientist Dr. Jecht Raptor.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, Landro's theme is "Lusamine Mother Beast Battle" from Pokémon Sun and Moon.
  • Luke, You Are My Father: Rev Raptor eventually realized that Landro was his father, Jecht Raptor.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: This insane villain has glowing red eyes as a result of his mutation.
  • Shout-Out: He may have been named after Jecht from Final Fantasy X. For this reason, Landro's beard and scars in the Director's Cut trailer were inspired by Jecht's appearance.
  • Twitchy Eye: In the Director's Cut, Landro has a twitchy eye to emphasize his mental instability.
  • Zombie Gait: Although he is not a zombie, Landro's unbalanced movements are compared to a zombie's gait in the Director's Cut. With dinosaurs substituting the usual zombie apocalypse, it only makes sense.

    XERRD allies 

Dr. Inferno

A Mad Scientist with dreams to Take Over the World, Dr. Inferno was all too eager to ally with XERRD when he heard that his rival, Evil Ogel, had allied with Dino Attack Team.

Willa the Witch

A Wicked Witch who rules over the Fright Knights, Willa the Witch became seduced by the power of the Maelstrom, as it enhanced her dark sorcery.

Señor Palomar

Rudo Villano

Hired by XERRD to do dinosaur hunting on Adventurers' Island, Villano originally worked with his former partner Señor Palomar but briefly allied with the Maelstrom during the attack on the Rear guard camp. After he was cured, he agreed to work with the Dino Attack Team in exchange for help getting back at his former boss.

Mr. Cunningham

A big-game hunter, Mr. Cunningham was hired by XERRD to help them hunt and capture dinosaurs on Adventurers' Island. Despite fighting on the opposite side of the war, he still has connections to Lord Sam Sinister, though.

Brickspider Bot v1.0

A prototype for the Brickster-Bot Spider designed by Evil Ogel and the Brickster, the Brickspider Bot v1.0 betrayed Ogel and hid out in the Goo Caverns until it was discovered by Dr. Inferno. Reveling in the death and destruction caused by the Dino Attack, the Brickspider Bot had no moral qualms about helping XERRD in bringing about the apocalypse.

  • Card-Carrying Villain: Given that the Brickspider Bot revels in death and destruction, it probably best fits in the Destruction sphere.
  • Cranial Processing Unit: A very perplexing usage of this trope, since it seems to Zig-Zag all over the place. The Brickspider Bot v1.0 can only be disabled by destroying its head. However, if the head is detached from the body but still intact, the body can still function, but as soon as the head is destroyed, the Brickspider Bot ceases to move. Strangely enough, it seems that memories are not stored within the Cranial Processing Unit; after its first head was destroyed by Rex, the Brickspider Bot retained its same memories even after its head was replaced. The only thing it lost was speech, since the replacement head did not yet have speech programmed into it.
  • Didn't Need Those Anyway!: Losing an arm during the Torn World battle did nothing to slow it down.
  • Disney Villain Death: Double Subversion; the Brickspider Bot was already dead, and then its lifeless body fell into the abyss.
  • Everyone Knows Morse: The Brickspider Bot knows Morse code and, after losing its first head and the ability to speak, taps with one foot to deliver its messages. Of course, despite the trope name, the Brickspider Bot soon discovers that Rex doesn't know Morse and therefore can't understand what it's saying.
  • Fangs Are Evil: A tell-tale sign that the Brickspider Bot is inherently a lot more evil than the typical mischevious Brickster-Bot.
  • In Love with Your Carnage: The Brickspider Bot v1.0 agreed to work with XERRD because it was fascinated by the death and destruction caused by Mutant Dinos.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Killer Robot
  • Losing Your Head: Its head was knocked off during the battle against the Hybrids in the Torn World, but it was still fully active and continued to remotely control its body until Amanda destroyed the head.
  • Meaningful Name: It's a Brickster-Bot with spider limbs.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: The name Brickspider Bot says it all.
  • Not Quite Dead: The Brickspider Bot v1.0 was seemingly killed, only to return several pages later as quite alive, if not necessarily with the same head.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Robot Names: The Brickspider Bot falls under the category of "Something-tron or Something-bot".
  • Robotic Psychopath
  • Sadist
  • "Second Law" My Ass!: The Brickspider Bot was specifically designed to break Asimov's First Law of Robotics, but what Evil Ogel and the Brickster did not expect was that it would become self-aware enough to break the Second Law as well, turning against them and refusing to be shut down.
  • The Speechless: The Brickspider Bot was not originally programmed with speech. It learned how to program itself with speech by studying the remains of PBB, but it only programmed one of its heads with speech, so when that head was destroyed by Rex, the Brickspider Bot was forced to use a replacement head that did not have speech programming. As such, it could only communicate by hooking itself up to Cyber-Bully and speaking through his mouth, or by tapping its foot in Morse code.
  • Spider Limbs
  • Spider People
  • Super Prototype: Being the original prototype, the Brickspider Bot v1.0 has far more intelligence and personality than any of the Brickster-Bot Spiders that were mass-produced by OGEL Robotics, Inc. This was deliberately toned down for the Brickster-Bot Spiders because the Brickspider Bot was too intelligent to be a mere Mook.

Spy Clops

One of Dr. Inferno's most infamous henchmen, Spy Clops participated in the invasion of Dino Attack Headquarters during the Final Battle.

  • Artificial Limbs: His legs have been replaced by mechanical Spider Limbs.
  • Cyborg
  • Made of Iron: Spy Clops was shot repeatedly with a shotgun, burned in close combat with a flamethrower, and sent flying through a wall, all during Sarah Bishop's rampage... and he still managed to survive. Granted, the only thing that saved his life was the rule against killing official LEGO characters.
  • Saved by Canon: Could not be killed for this reason. This was probably the only reason he survived his encounter with Sarah Bishop.
  • Spider Limbs: Of the mechanical kind.

Cyber-Bully

An Inferno agent who operated in the Goo Caverns, Cyber-Bully has the unique ability to hook computers up to himself and let them speak through him, an ability that the Brickspider Bot used to its fullest advantage after being rendered mute.

  • All There in the Manual: Until his appearance in Alpha Team RPG: Ogel's Last Stand, the only way to know Cyber-Bully's name was by reading his wiki article.
  • Artificial Limbs: Both of his arms are completely mechanical.
  • The Brute: If this quote is anything to go by:
    Cyber-Bully: "What, must I knock you out every three hours? Perhaps this time I'll hit ya so hard, you will finally get it into your skull that you must be unconscious and stay unconscious!"
  • Cyborg
  • Double Agent: In Alpha Team RPG: Ogel's Last Stand, he pretended to defect to Ogel's side in order to act as The Mole actually working for Dr. Inferno. Needless to say, when he was caught by General Evil, things did not... end well for him.
  • The Engineer
  • Genius Bruiser: He is a brilliant technician and engineer, but also acts like a thuggish brute at times.
  • Machine Monotone: He goes into this state whenever a machine is speaking through him.
  • Punny Name: His name is a play on "cyberbullying", the use of the Internet and related technologies to harm other people, in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner.
  • Wetware Body: This is Cyber-Bully's main purpose - to act as a host for A.I., robots, or computers. However, they are only capable of controlling his speech, as it seems that nearly all other motor functions shut down in this state. At first, Cyber-Bully thought that this was really cool, but after at least two years of being the Wetware Body for various machines, he's no longer fond of the ability by the time he has to play host to the Brickspider Bot during the Dino Attack.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: We are never given confirmation regarding whether or not Cyber-Bully survived the destruction of the Goo Caverns.

    FUTURE 

Fogel

An alternate future version of Evil Ogel, Fogel has kept himself alive with an enhanced G.E. Body exoskeleton and become the leader of FUTURE. Seeing the Dino Attack as a missed opportunity to complete his plans to Take Over the World, he has traveled back in time to help his past self destroy the Dino Attack Team.

  • 24-Hour Armor: Much like Darth Vader, Fogel's exosuit holds all his life support systems.
  • Adaptational Badass: Fogel is a much greater threat in the Director's Cut, putting up a better fight against Rex, Amanda, and Frozeen than he did in the original RPG.
  • Appropriated Appellation: The name "Fogel" was originally coined as an insult, but Fogel decided to bear it with pride.
  • Big, Stupid Doodoo-Head: The harshest insult that Fogel, an even darker and more evil version of Evil Ogel, could come up with was "Mrs. Dumb-Mouth". This is rectified by the Director's Cut, which changes Fogel's insult to a play on the expression "deaf, dumb, and blind".
  • Cyborg: Fogel is kept alive by his cybernetic G.E. Body.
  • Dark Lord on Life Support: After a crushing defeat at the hands at Alpha Team, Fogel needs his 24-Hour Armor to survive.
  • Evil Wears Black: Even as the only Future Villain without a Black Cloak, his G.E. Body gives him black armor.
  • Good Wings, Evil Wings: Fogel's unique G.E. Body comes with a pair of bat wings.
  • Immune to Bullets: Fogel's unique G.E. Body protects him from most attacks. When attacking a Dino Attack outpost, he simply stood there and let the Dino Attack agents shoot him to no avail.
  • Kinslaying Is a Special Kind of Evil: Ever wonder what happened to General Evil in FUTURE's timeline? Fogel killed him for daring to question the efficiency of his plans. This is one of the reasons why, in the present Dino Attack, General Evil feared Fogel.
  • Living on Borrowed Time: Fogel should be dead, but he has artificially extended his lifespan with his G.E. Body.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Fogel's unique G.E. Body comes with two extra pairs of arms, giving him six total.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His alias was Boss.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: After what should have been his final defeat, he was rebuilt as a cyborg.

Finister

An alternate future version of Lord Sam Sinister, Finister lost his other hand during the Dino Attack and spent many years in prison. Now, he has traveled back in time to change history.

  • Abled in the Adaptation: In the original Early Installment Weirdness days of Dino Attack RPG, Sam Sinister was totally blind, and this extended to Fssinister as well who needed special glasses in order to see. In the Director's Cut, Finister still has his eyesight, although it's downplayed since he is still figuratively Blind Without 'Em instead of literally.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the Director's Cut, Finister puts up a greater fight during his last stand and is even powered up by the Re-Gou's curse.
  • Black Cloak: Like the other members of FUTURE, he wears a black cloak.
  • Blind Without 'Em: He's at an age where can barely see without his glasses.
  • Cursed With Awesome: In the Director's Cut, Finister's hooks are fashioned from the Re-Gou ruby, subjecting him to Pharaoh Hotep's curse but giving him the power to shoot powerful magical blasts from his hooks.
  • Evil Wears Black: Finister wears a Black Cloak over a black militaristic uniform.
  • For the Evulz: In the Director's Cut, Rex asks why Finister didn't design the Truth Receiver as a mind-reading machine. Finister replies that it isn't as fun as designing the Truth Receiver as a torture device.
  • Hook Hand: Unlike his present-day self, Finister has two Hook Hands.
  • I Hate Past Me: Finister makes it clear that he despises his 2010 self, considering him a spineless coward.
  • In the Hood: Like Frickster, his Black Cloak comes with a concealing hood.
  • Laughing Mad: In the Director's Cut, Finister starts cackling maniacally and telling bad jokes as he gives in to the Curse of the Pharaoh.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His alias was Hooks.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In the Director's Cut, Finister's eyes start glowing red like the Re-Gou ruby when the Curse of the Pharaoh takes over.
  • The Starscream: He is second-in-command of FUTURE and he despises Fogel. While he wouldn't dare stand up to Fogel, he tries to influence his past self to betray Ogel.
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: In the Director's Cut, Rex threatens to sic Trouble and Maw on Finister. Finister dares him to do it and thereby prove that the Mutant Dinos are violent monsters. Rex begrudgingly backs down.
  • Sudden Name Change: Finister's name was written as "Fssinister" in the RPG, and this was retconned by Love and War.
  • Turns Red: In the Director's Cut. Finister, on the verge of defeat, makes his last stand by powering himself up with the Curse of the Pharaoh, making him a much more powerful foe.
  • Villainous Breakdown: In the Director's Cut, Finister makes his last stand on the verge of defeat. At this time, he suddenly goes from being one of the more level-headed villains to going Laughing Mad as he channels his Cursed With Awesome powers.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: In the Director's Cut, the Curse of the Pharaoh gives Finister much greater power, but he goes Laughing Mad and even starts telling one of Pharaoh Hotep's signature terrible jokes.
  • Would You Like to Hear How They Died?: In the Director's Cut, this is how Rex learned that Finister killed Roger Remous.

The Frickster

An alternate future version of the Brickster, the Frickster became a fugitive and eventually lost his arms and legs, having them replaced with Artificial Limbs. He has traveled back in time to help his past self defeat the heroes.

Fladek

An alternate future version of Lord Vladek, Fladek kept himself alive with black magic to survive his life sentence in prison. He has traveled back in time to help his past self take over Castle Cove.

    ShadowTech 

Canis "Cane" Schattenberg

  • Arc Villain: Cane, along with Darkforce, filled the role of the RPG's main villain during its second Story Arc.
  • Alternate Self: Kotua meets Anti-Cane during his brief detour into the Antiverse. While we don't see much of him to tell how similar Cane and Anti-Cane are, we do know that Anti-Cane is the sort of person who would hold a baby hostage in a burning building... which can be seen as a metaphor for Cane using the Dino Attack apocalypse to forcibly reshape humanity the way he sees fit.
  • The Chessmaster: Agent Cane surreptitiously hijacked all of Katerina Schattenberg's work in order to settle a feud that started a generation before him.
  • Colonel Kilgore: In his early characterization by Kotua in Space, especially noticeable as he reveled in the battle against Dino Attack Team and the LEGOLAND military.
  • Composite Character: In the Director's Cut, Cane is combined with the unidentified sunglasses-wearing ShadowTech man who confronts Databoard aboard the Anti-Voltage.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Cane had a bit of this in him, given his business suit attire and Kotua accusing him and his organization of being corrupt.
  • Evil Wears Black: Known for wearing a nice black suit. This was even his defining feature before his name was revealed, since he was simply called "the man in black".
  • Evilutionary Biologist: Cane wants to use the Dino Attack as a means of promoting "survival of the fittest" to improve the minifig species.
  • Killed Off for Real: Cane was killed by an Ofnir Rex during the attack on ShadowTech Island. Although he likely had contingencies to cheat death, Kat wants to make sure Cane stays dead after the Dino Attack.
  • Kinslaying Is a Special Kind of Evil: While they were not related by blood, Cane sent assassins to kill his aunt Katerina. They would have succeeded had she not downloaded herself into Kat, but Cane knew this and programmed Loops, Rainer, and Wolfgang to finish the job.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, Cane's theme is "Rectifier" from TRON: Legacy.
  • Name of Cain: It should come as no surprise that a character known as Cane would be a villain.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: If it wasn't bad enough that he has the Name of Cain, Schattenberg is derived from the German word for "shadow".
  • Truly Single Parent: Cane raised Loop as his son. Now, remember that Loop is a secondary synthfig who is genetically modeled after Cane.

Lupis "Loop" Schattenberg

  • Artificial Human: Was revealed to be a secondary synthfig created by ShadowTech.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Loop was initially an unnamed Inferno henchman who framed Kat and B for murder, only to later return and be revealed as part of ShadowTech.
  • The Dragon: He is Cane's loyal synthfig assigned to finish a violent family feud, though this was only revealed after Cane's death.
  • Evil Wears Black: His minifigure is depicted with a black jumpsuit.
  • I Die Free: His final words were expressing gratitude towards Swerve for killing him, since only death could truly grant Loop the total freedom he desired.
  • Mind Rape: More or less what Loop was doing to Katerina Schattenberg in his final scene.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Shares the same family name, Schattenberg, as Katerina and Canis.
  • Not in This for Your Revolution: Although he carries out Cane's last wishes, Loop doesn't actually care about the Schattenberg family feud and is simply doing it for his own sadistic enjoyment.
  • Third Eye: An unusual trait for secondary synthfigs.
  • Sadist: Loop derives a sort of euphoria from the pain and death of others.

Axey

A ShadowTech assassin who rose the ranks to become Cane's lieutenant. He is also Slash's evil twin brother.

    The Maelstrom (SPOILERS) 

Baron Typhonus / The Darkitect

Baron Typhonus was one of the four explorers who journeyed across the LEGO Universe in search of Planet Crux and the Imagination Nexus. Upon discovering the Imagination Nexus, Baron Typhonus created the Spider Boss to demonstrate the power of chaos, but the spider betrayed him and dragged him into the Imagination. Their combined chaotic ideals corrupted the Imagination Nexus into the Maelstrom, and Baron Typhonus's fate was left unknown, long believed to either be dead or a prisoner to the Maelstrom.

In actuality, Baron Typhonus became the Maelstrom itself. Now known as the Darkitect, he is now the mastermind of chaos and destruction itself, and his ultimate goal is to destroy the entire LEGO Universe. When XERRD brought the Maelstrom Crystal to LEGO Planet, the Darkitect started manipulating their actions to accomplish his goal of destroying LEGO Planet itself.

Ahua

A member of the TumTum Tribe who was corrupted in a fearsome, power-hungry Stromling. He, for the most part, controlled the Maelstrom's operations on Adventurers' Island.

Standard Agent Ernest "Colonel" Quartich

    Others 

Chaos

An ancient and powerful being made entirely of water, Chaos was originally released from its Mayan prison by a Brainwashed and Crazy Kotua during Mission Deep Freeze, only to be defeated by the Alpha Team agent once he regained his senses. During the Dino Attack, Chaos brainwashed Kotua again in an elaborate scheme to release itself once again and get its revenge upon the Alpha Team, with the help of a synthetic duplicate created by ShadowTech.

  • Animalistic Abomination: Appears vaguely reptilian in its Perfect Chaos form.
  • Arc Villain: Considering that Chaos was manipulating Kotua throughout much of the first Story Arc, it was the closest thing that the RPG had to a Big Bad at the time.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: In its Perfect Chaos and Alpha Chaos forms, Chaos towers above all else, including Mutant T-Rexes.
  • Blob Monster: Chaos is amorphous due to being made of water.
  • Breath Weapon: Can shoot beams of pure energy from its mouth.
  • Chaos Is Evil: Especially when a Maelstrom-enhanced clone is created by ShadowTech.
  • The Chessmaster: The original Chaos served as The Chessmaster controlling Kotua's actions for much of the early Dino Attack in a grand scheme to get its revenge on the Alpha Team agent and free itself from its Mayan prison.
  • Combat Tentacles: Made of water.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: After a ton of build-up, Alpha Chaos was defeated rather anti-climatically by a sudden intervention by Anti-Kotua.
  • Eldritch Abomination: An ancient, chaotic, god-like entity made of water and able to drive victims to madness? Certainly fits the bill.
  • Expy: Of Chaos from Sonic Adventure.
  • Kill It with Ice: Chaos's only true weakness; being made entirely of water, if it is frozen, it cannot move. This is ultimately how Alpha Chaos was defeated by Anti-Kotua.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, Chaos's theme is "Perfect Chaos Revival" from Sonic Adventure.
  • Making a Splash: Not only can Chaos control water, but Chaos itself is made of water.
  • The Man in Front of the Man: Chaos appeared to be serving Kotua, but what no one realized was that Chaos was behind it all and was planning to betray Kotua as soon as it was freed from its Mayan prison again.
  • Meaningful Name: Especially in regards to the synthetic ShadowTech version, which used trace amounts of Maelstrom, literally chaos itself, in its creation.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: What would expect from a being named Chaos?
  • Robot Me: Kotua designed a Robo-Chaos while they were working together. However, nothing ever came of this.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was locked away in a Mayan temple for eons until it was freed twice by Kotua in the 21st century.

Atukam

An Indigo Islander and a dark sorcerer who was banished by King Kahuka, Atukam seeks his revenge by exploiting the Mutant Dinos. Atukam only appears in the Director's Cut, in which he fills in the role originally played by Makuta.

  • Adaptation Name Change: In the original RPG, his name was Makuta (canonically Teridax, although this was not yet known at the time). This was changed to the Sdrawkcab Name Atukam in the Director's Cut.
  • Adaptation Species Change: In the original RPG, he was a Makuta. In the Director's Cut, he was changed to an ordinary human minifigure.
  • Cain and Abel: Atukam is revealed to be King Kahuka's evil brother, as of version 1.0 of the Director's Cut.
  • Casting a Shadow: Atukam's magical powers are darkness-based.
  • The Corrupter: Atukam uses his powers to briefly turn Databoard Brainwashed and Crazy.
  • Death by Adaptation: While Makuta could not be killed in the original RPG due to being Saved by Canon, Atukam dies in the Director's Cut.
  • Evil Laugh: As a Mythology Gag, Atukam's evil laughter in the Director's Cut trailer is taken from Makuta's appearance in the Wall of History animations.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Besides his motivation of getting revenge on King Kahuka for banishing him, Atukam is a minor villain who does not receive much personality or development.
  • Hollywood Natives: Like the other Indigo Islanders, Atukam is based on stereotypical depictions of Polynesian natives.
  • Horns of Barbarism: Atukam's mask is depicted with horns in the Director's Cut trailer, in contrast with King Kahuka's white plumage.
  • Killed Offscreen: In the initial version 0.9 release of the Director's Cut, though not explicitly killed, Atukam only makes one appearance and then is defeated off-screen several chapters later. This was addressed in the version 1.0 release, which depicts his final battle and death in a newly-written scene.
  • Malevolent Masked Men: Atukam always wears a demonic-looking tribal mask to hide his face.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Atukam's only visible facial feature is his eyes, which are glowing red.
  • Redemption Rejection: King Kahuka offers Atukam a chance to rejoin the Indigo Islanders. Atukam pretends to accept the offer and then tries to kill Kahuka.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Starting with version 1.0, Atukam is King Kahuka's brother in the Director's Cut. In the original RPG, Makuta had no familial relationship with Turaga Vakama (the character who originally filled King Kahuka's current role). However, it's intended as a reference to Makuta being Mata Nui's brother.
  • The Savage Indian: Although based on Polynesian culture rather than Native American, Atukam otherwise fits this trope as a savage and bloodthirsty Hollywood Native.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: Like other additions made in the Director's Cut, Atukam is considered ambiguously canon until he is referenced by a more canonical source.
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: Atukam wears armor crafted from human bones.

Anti-Kotua

Kotua's Mirror Self from the Antiverse, Anti-Kotua followed Kotua into the prime reality with his personal airship, the Anti-Voltage. He used a Green Rocks-powered Weather-Control Machine to create a hurricane, and was also collecting blood samples of Dino Attack agents to create an army of robotic clones.

  • Anti-Villain: And not just because he's a villain with the "Anti-" prefix attached to his name! Antithesis revealed that Anti-Kotua's own universe is being devastated by hurricanes, and he believes that the primary universe is responsible. Therefore, Anti-Kotua sincerely believes that he is giving the primary universe its just desserts.
  • Disney Villain Death: Kotua kicked Anti-Kotua out of the Anti-Voltage hangar, where Anti-Kotua presumably fell to his death.
  • Evil vs. Evil: One of Anti-Kotua's first acts in the prime reality was fighting Alpha Chaos.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: In the original RPG, Anti-Kotua has no clear goal or motivation behind his actions. This may be be a result of missing posts that could not be recovered in the Dino Attack RPG downloadable archive. As a direct result, Antithesis was written in 2018 to flesh out his motivations.
  • Make Way for the New Villains: Anti-Kotua made his grand entrance by effortlessly neutralizing Chaos, who was essentially the closest thing to the RPG's Big Bad at the time. This, along with Kotua's Heel–Face Turn, officially marked the end of the Kotua crisis and the beginning of a new Story Arc.
  • Mirror Self: An evil version of Kotua from an Alternate Universe. Just like Kotua, he even had a personal airship, the Anti-Voltage; a fleet of Mini-Mecha vehicles, the Shadow-Blades; and an army of Mecha-Mooks, the Astrobots (as well as the second generation of Robo-Agents, although those were not finished until after his death).
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Anti-Kotua believes the primary universe is intentionally destroying his own universe with devastating storms, so he is seeking revenge by generating hurricanes in the primary universe.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Basically, Anti-Kotua is a villain because the people involved with the ANTI project unintentionally convinced him that the primary universe was a threat.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Anti-Kotua was apparently fond of this, since the Anti-Voltage had many curved spikes.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Anti-Kotua was basically an excuse to continue the "evil Kotua" schtick even after the Kotua crisis ended.
  • Tricked-Out Gloves: Wore a glove that could shoot powerful blasts.
  • Wacky Wayside Tribe: In the big picture, villains such as Anti-Kotua play little part in the overall story and just served as momentary threats.

Darkforce

An Alpha Team agent who was erroneously reported to have died in the field, Darkforce actually went rogue and secretly founded the Shadows organization.

  • Arc Villain: Darkforce, along with Cane, filled the role of the RPG's main villain during its second Story Arc.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He can beat Voltage in hand-to-hand combat, and he is never seen without his dark grey suit.
  • Disney Villain Death: In the hangar of his personal plane, Darkforce was pushed off the catwalks and fell to the floor below, and that was the last time he was ever seen. Even if he survived the fall, he would have drowned when his plane crash-landed in the ocean shortly afterward.
  • Fallen Hero: Used to be an Alpha Team agent before becoming the leader of the Shadows.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: Aside from his plan to exploit the Dino Attack as a means to Take Over the World (requiring the elimination of Dino Attack Team to achieve this goal), Darkforce's plans and motivations aren't exactly clear. For example, why did he go from an Alpha Team agent to a villain? We'll never know.
  • Invisibility Cloak: Darkforce is equipped with a personal cloaking device that can make him invisible, although its effects can be negated with water.
  • Leitmotif: In the Complete Soundtrack playlist, Darkforce's theme is "Dubai Arms Fair - St. Petersburg Archives" from GoldenEye (2010).
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Darkforce really isn't a subtle name.
  • Reports of My Death Were Greatly Exaggerated: Darkforce reportedly died in Antarctica in 2005, but evidently that was just a cover-up.
