Only include tropes unique to this story. Otherwise, consult the parent series' respective indexes.

    Tropes about specific species 

Allosaurus fragilis

The most well known species of Allosaurus.
  • Composite Character: These allosaurus seemed to include traits from both the real life Allosaurus fragilis and Epanterias amplexus. It should be noted that the later may actually be a species of Allosaurus, as its taxonomy is still up in the air.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: Are portrayed as being far more cautious and intelligent then their sister species, with greater focus on teamwork. During the hunt on the salt plains, they remain focused on isolating a weakling from the herd.
  • Soldier vs. Warrior: The Soldier to A. lucasi's Warrior. These allosaurs remain focused on trying to isolate a weakling from the herd, with one allosaur helping another who is completely unrelated to him since it will make the hunt easier.

Allosaurus lucasi

A less well known species of Allosaurus from the Morrison Formation.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: When the became a separate species from A. fragilis, they also became more aggressive and impulsive. They are also far lazier, as during the Battle on the Saltn Plaons, they don't even try to help finish off Joel when he is surrounded, instead letting their fragilis cousins do al the work, then moving in to eat first.
  • Soldier vs. Warrior: The Warrior to A. fragilis's Soldier. They are far more concerned with filling their bellies during the hunt on the Salt Plains, to the point that one of them stops attacking the sauropods in an attempt to eat Caius and Flit.

Supersaurus

A type of diplodocid sauropod.
  • Amazing Technicolor Wildlife: Females have bright red necks.
  • New-Age Retro Hippie: Despite living millions of years before the counter culture happened, they act like hippies.
  • Stereotype Flip: Most sauropods in the story tend to act like nobility, or at least have an air of regality to their demeanors. The Supersaurus, though, are much more laid back and informal.
  • Tail Slap: How they defend themselves. Given that the end of their tails are essentially whips, its very effective.

    Introduced In A Prehistoric Park Adventure 

Hazel Veran

The main protagonist of the story, Hazel is Nigel's youngest recruit. The events of A Prehistoric Park Adventure chronicle her very first solo mission.
  • Action Girl: Has, as of the ending of Extinction Lasts Forever, fought a pack of Velocirapror and two Carnotaurus, THREE TIMES in the case of one of carnos, and has so far come out on top in all of them, except for the fight with the raptors, but that one was Justified, as she was heavily outnumbered.
  • Asian and Nerdy: Very, very Downplayed: While she's not stereotypically nerdy AT ALL, she's still very interested in prehistoric life, and according to word of god, is of Asian descent from both parents.
  • Character Development: It takes a while, but in Prehistoric Revolution, she finally accepts that there might be a good reason why some of the dinosaurs at the park and in the past have Social Darwinist mindsets.
  • Character Development: It takes a while, but by the time of Prehistoric Revolution, she finally begins to accept that dinosaurs (and, in general, most prehistoric creatures) might have good reasons to view the world with a Social Darwinist mindset.
  • Control Freak: Has an issue with this in The Long Night of Winter. It's fairly likely she's just having issues being put into the position of leader for the first time.
  • Cool Chair: Get's a saddle for Flia from Nigel for her birthday, which happened sometime prior to Extinction Lasts Forever.
  • Determinator: Is absolutely determined to rescue any prehistoric creature she can. However, this is Deconstructed in Prehistoric Revolution: this leads her to attempt to save animals from situations that would likely end up leaving her dead, with Flia having to dissuade her or, in one case, drag her back through the time portal kicking and screaming.
  • Disappeared Dad: When she was 13, her father left to work on the park with Nigel. A few days later, she learned that he had been lost at sea. Even thinking about this is enough to reduce her to tears.
  • Experienced Protagonist: She's gone on several missions with Nigel prior to the start of the series, the events of A Prehistoric Park Adventure are merely the first time she's gone on a mission alone.
  • False Dichotomy: Ends up experiencing this in Prehistoric Revolution, believing that anyone who wants to leave behind a dinosaur/other prehistoric creature is an example of The Social Darwinist. The three times Flia suggests that they not try to rescue an animal, though, are for reasons that make quite a bit of sense:
    • Trying to rescue baby Broken Jaw after his injury would've put Hazel and Flia in the sights of his mom.
    • When they find Alyssa, she's waist deep in mud, not to mention sick and weak. This time, though, Hazel does convince Flia to help her free Alyssa.
    • Finally, her desire to save Joel the Diplodocus would've meant getting in the middle of a pack of very hungry Allosaurus. Flia puts her foot down her and simply flies back through the time portal before Hazel can attempt her plan.
  • Fatal Flaw: Has two:
    • Keeping secrets. In the first story, she hides the fact that she was from the present until the last few chapters, while in the sequel, she doesn't tell the herd about the second fireball until just about an hour before it hits. The first one is brushed over by her friends, the second one ends up getting her pawed by Nero and leaves her with multiple broken bones, as well as making her an outcast among the herd. Both times are justified: the first time, Hazel is not sure if they'd believe her if she told them the truth, while the second time, she didn't know how the herd would react if she told them the truth.
  • Heroic BSoD: Has one when Nero turns the herd against her by revealing that she knew about the fireball but didn't tell them, which leads to...
    • Break the Badass: Get's herself pulverized when she's pawed by Nero after calling him out on his Jerkass tendencies. She ends up with several broken ribs and a broken arm.
  • Image Song: Gift Of A Friend by Demi Lavato.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: While her treatment of her human coworkers leaves much to be desired, she is right to be worried about Ellis getting the time wrong with the portal - while he set it to take them to Prehistoric Alaska in the early Summer, they ended up arriving just as winter is about to begin...which also means they'll have to share the valley with Patchi and his herd.
  • Knife Nut: Her weapon of choice is a dagger.
  • Missing Mom: Her mom left after her father died to support them by working abroad, but barely talked to them after that, and by the time of the story, they are rather distant. They finally begin to reconcile during the Christmas Episode.
  • Squee: Her reaction to meeting a herd of Diplodocus.
  • Sword and Gun: Downplayed: while she never uses them together, she's skilled at using both her dagger and rifle-type guns. She just normally doesn't use guns because A: they are too bulky for most missions and B: one of her arms is broken when she is pawed by Nero, making aiming a problem.
  • Thou Shall Not Kill: Firmly believes in this, which ends up causing a rift between her and Aladar's Inner Circle during Prehistoric Revolution, as she doesn't want Lethe to finish off an unconscious Ceratosaurus that was previously attacking them.
  • Tom Boy: She's a girl who enjoys working with dinosaurs and going on adventures into the past.

Flia

A Pterandon (actually Geosternbergia, but don't call her that) that Hazel meets at the beginning of the story.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: Has a large crest, despite being female. Also, she lacks pycnofibers.
  • Ascended Extra: She's the Geosternbergia from the movie, but fills a roll closer to her game self, who acted as the scout for Aladar's family.
  • Broken Pedestal: Learning Hazel knew about the second fireball and chose not to tell her this really strains their friendship.
    • Rebuilt Pedestal: After Neera points out that every member of the herd has been well cared for by the park's staff, and receiving a heartfelt apology from Hazel, she forgives her friend.
  • Giant Flyer: Her wings are about 25 feet long.
  • Horse of a Different Color: She's let Hazel ride her several times in the story.
  • Image Song: Catch My Breath by Kelly Clarkson.
  • Insistent Terminology: She's a Geosternbergia, but prefers to be called a Pteranodon. For reference, the former was considered to be a species of the latter for many years before being put into its own genus.
  • Pragmatic Adaptation: In the video game, Flia was part of Aladar's family from the get-go and helped the lemurs raise him, and helped them find the herd when they were alone in the desert (this is before they actually met the herd, they were following footprints they found in the sand). Since Hazel meets the herd before she meets Aladar, Flia becomes the herd's scout, with no prior connection to Aladar.
    • This also explains why she found Hazel in the first place: she was scouting for predators and saw Hazel being chased by raptors, so she moved in to help.
  • Science Marches On: Averted: Hazel calls her a Geosternbergia when she first meets her in A Prehistoric Park adventure, but she has no idea what that is, so Hazel calls her a Pterandon, which is what she believes herself to be. Even after learning what Hazel meant, she still prefers to be called a ''Pteranodon''.
  • Vegetarian Carnivore: Averted: she's a fish-eater, just like in real life. None of the herd members give her any trouble about it, either.

Aladar

The Hero of Dinosaur.

The lemurs

Plio, Yar, Zini, Suri, and Original Character Aya.

Baylene

A female Brachiosaurus, and Eema's best friend.
  • Last of Her Kind: She's the last Brachiosaurus by the time of A Prehistoric Park Adventure, and while she doesn't let it get to her that much, it's clear she's very lonely because of this. This makes her meeting with Yin that much more heartwarming.
    • Also, depending on what Hazel rescues in Prehistoric Revolution, this may not be the case for much longer.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: She's extremely happy to find out she isn't the only sauropod in the park, even if she is the last Brachiosaurus.

Diablo

The larger of the two Carnotaurus, and one of the series primary antagonists.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: He's the size of a Tyrannosaurus rex, much larger than the real-life Carnotaurus. This is Lampshaded by Hazel.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: In A Prehistoric Park Adventure, alongside his mate.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: In Extinction Lasts Forever, alongside Nero. While he shares Nero's hatred of Aladar, it's for totally difference reasons. Also, his plan for vengeance involves slaughtering the entire herd, while Nero wants to rule the herd.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: It's very clear that he loved his mate and is heartbroken by her death.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Ultimately, he is this to Nero: while Nero may be far more selfish than him, Diablo's patience and foresight make him a far more effective villain. Case in point: when he escapes from his exhibit, he does so by easily manipulating Nero into breaking the electrical systems on the fence.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Finally mellows out and becomes nicer during the events of the Christmas Bash, due to all of the kindness the park's staff have treated him to.
  • Image Song: The Vengeful One by Distrubed.
  • Made Of Iron: It takes being attacked by Marth, Irwin, Aladar, Flia, Terence AND Matilda to finally beat him in Extinction Lasts Forever.
  • Knight of Cerebus: While he does have his more comedic moments, whenever he appears in Extinction Lasts Forever, the mood is going go sour fast.
  • Last of His Kind: With his mate dead, he is the very last Carnotaurus in existence. Fans have expressed interest in rescuing him a new mate.
  • Reformed, but Not Tamed: The best way to describe him in The Long Night Of Winter - he's no longer a villain, but still a grade a Jerkass.
  • The Voiceless: In A Prehistoric Park Adventure, because at that point, Hazel's communicator only worked on herbivores. After it gets upgraded in the sequel, this is Averted.

Theo

The park's male Triceratops.
  • Casanova Wannabe: His attempts to woo Ellie make him out as one. Played With in that he actually does like her, it's just he has no idea how to win her affections, so his attempts to do so usually end in failure. Eema eventually helps him get things right.
  • Last of His Kind: At the beginning of the story, he is the very last Triceratops in existence, since he was the only one Nigel rescued. Due to him being lonely to the point of not eating, Nigel rescued a female to keep him company, as well as provide him with a mate.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: A Triceratops.

Ellie

A female Triceratops. Nigel rescues her so that Theo can have both a companion and a mate.

Kron

The leader of the herd.
  • Back from the Dead: A variation - while he is still dead, he briefly meets Hazel while she is dreaming prior to the second meteor impact, and encourages Hazel to just tell the herd the truth, as there is no reason for her to hide it.
  • Face Death with Dignity: If his thoughts before his death are any indication.
  • Freudian Excuse: As is revealed by Flia in Prehistoric Revolution, he actually used to be a lot like Aladar, wanting to try and ensure everyone made it to the Nesting Grounds. However, during one of the migrations, the herd was attacked by a pack of Chenanisaurus, during which Kron's mentor, Rudon (who was Bruton's older brother) was surrounded by predators trying to defend the herd. Rudon told them to leave him behind, which they reluctantly did. Kron was haunted by this and tried the next few years to get the herd to slow down whenever the old, weak, or sick members lagged behind, but this led to more casualties, which led to him adopting his Social Darwinist views, as they ensured that the majority of the herd survived.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Nope.

Nigel

The head of Prehistoric Park.
  • Alternate Universe: Besides the dinosaurs in this story, it's been confirmed he has no children in story, despite the fact that this is not the case in real life (Theo is named after his son, for reference).
  • A Day in the Limelight: While Hazel and her friends are normally the focus of the story, he usually gets at least one major scene per book.
  • Out of Focus: As this story is about Hazel, he isn't in the limelight anymore.

    Introduced In Extinction Last's Forever 

Alden, Talin, Maya, Saya and Kaya

Aladar and Neera's children.

Tirech

A juvenile Pachyrhinosaurus, and one of Talin and Alden's friends.

Charon


A juvenile ''Parasaurolophus', and one of Alden and Talin's friends.
  • Family Theme Naming: Both Charon and her mom are named after rivers from the Grekk Underworld.
  • Massively Numbered Siblings: According to Word of God, she has six.
  • Meaningful Name: Possibly: She could be named after Charonosaurus, an Asian hadrosaur that looks remarkably similar to Parasaurolophus, to the point that some scientists argue about whether or not it is really just an Asian species of Parasuarolophus.
  • Image Song: All The Small Things by Blink 182, which she shares with Talin, Alden, and Tirech.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Tirech's blue. She's far more outgoing and adventurous than he is.

Terence and Matilda

Prehistoric Park's Tyrannosaurus rex twins.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The more aggressive Matilda is the red to cautious and deceptive Terence's blue.
  • Sibling Rivalry: They still have this by the time of the story, though Terence is better at standing up for himself.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: They're released to fight Diablo. In an aversion of the normal nature of this trope, they aren't actually dangerous to everyone else, but they still haven't completely ended their rivalry when the final battle starts.
  • Mistaken Identity: The two were mistaken for Albertosaurus by Juniper. Which is understandable as the two are closly related.

Marcus

The park's head engineer.
  • Forgot to Pay the Bill: His reason for being so pessimistic in Extinction Lasts Forever: The park is running out of money due to going over budget, and unless they can find a way to deal with it, they'll have to release some of the residents....
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He built the portal, the communicator, shock collars meant to keep the carnivores contained (to prevent another breakout), and a set of taser rifles to deal with Diablo.
  • Only Sane Man: Seeing how Bob is becoming more used to the crazy residents of the park, he fulfills this role now.
    • And even then, this is Down Played, because he built a device that lets people talk to dinosaurs.
  • The Smart Guy: Is probably the smartest in the park, at least in regards to technology.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: His reaction to seeing the herd arrive at the park. For very important reasons...

Martha

Prehistoric Park's Wooly Mammoth.

Mujaji

The matriarch of the park's elephant herd.

Mikiya

Mujaji's daughter.
  • Cheerful Child: OH SO MUCH!!
  • Image Song: Make It Shine by Victoria Justice, which she shares with the Iguanodon girls.
  • Stunned Silence: Her reaction to learning that Saya, Kaya and Maya don't know what balls or bananas are.

Nero

An aggressive male iguanodon, and one of the main antagoinists of the sequel.

Irwin

The park's Deinosuchus.

Rascal

The park's Troodon.

Twitch, Ben, and Scorpio

The park's resident Big Creepy-Crawlies.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Are this. As they are from the Carboniferous, this is {{Justified.}}
  • Motor Mouth: Twitch speaks this way. Apparently, it comes with being a hyper-fast dragonfly.
  • Out of Focus: Averted during Diablo's breakout: while they aren't actually involved in the stampede, their exhibit ends up catching on fire due to a collision with one of the residents.
  • Reality Ensues: When their exhibit catches on fire due to Diablo's stampede (It Makes Sense in Context), Ben has to carry Scorpio to Suzanne, as Scorpio has already passed out from lack of oxygen.
    • During this time, Twitch goes to seek Hazel for help. He passes out the minute he finishes giving an explanation of what happened.
    • Additionally, Ben has almost passed out due to asphyxiation by the time he finds Suzanne. Being a giant arthropod is NOT POSSIBLE on Earth with the modern atmosphere.
  • The Smurfette Principal: Scorpio is female of the trio.
  • Strange-Syntax Speaker: Whenever they talk, it's represented in broken English. Per Word of God, it's meant to show how ancient a time the came from compared to all of the park's other residents.

Espantos

The park's terror bird. Also a bit of a scatterbrain.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: At one point, while talking to Diablo, he was briefly attacked by some carnivore (a hyena, per Word of God), which he swiftly killed, before going back to having his scatter brained conversation with Diablo like nothing happened.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He's an Expy of Caboose. It comes with the territory.
  • Expy: Of Caboose. However, he also shares some traits with Joel Heymen, Caboose's voice actor.

Lethe

Charon's mom.

Sarge

Tirech's dad.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Insults Bruno over his ridiculous appearance. He almost loses an eye when Bruno tries to stab him with his claws.
  • Blood Knight: Really enjoys fighting, as the fight against the Ceratosaurus shows.
  • Eagle Land: Type 2.
  • Expy: Of Sarge: both have similar personalities and [[Name's the Same the same name].
  • Foil: To Lethe: Sarge is gung-ho, somewhat obnoxious, and generally believes in acting before thinking. Lethe is calm and refined, preferring to 'look before you leap'.
    • He's also one to his son: Tirech is very cautious, while Sarge is, at times, a Fearless Fool.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: He's a Pachyrhinosaurus.
  • Vitrolic Best Buds: With Lethe.

Altus

A male Struthiomimus.

Naomi and Embo.

A mated pair of Iguanodon, and the new parents of the orphans.
  • Adult Fear: None of their eggs from their last clutch hatched. For dinosaurs, this would be equivalent to having a stillborn child.
  • Commonality Connection: The reason they get along with Sabrina and Caesar: both pairs are the parents of twins, though they are somewhat estranged from there children (Naomi and Embo due to being adoptive parents, Sabrina and Caesar due to the park caring for their cubs).
  • Happily Married: Definitely.

Elasmotherium (Big Guy)

The park's resident wooly rhino.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Get's really angry just from people being near him.
  • No Name Given: He has one, but never told anyone what it is. It's eventually revealed to be Kerato.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Elasmotherium is usually ignored in favor of the more famous wooly rhino, Coelodonta.

Bruno

Leader of the park's Therizinosaurus.

The Sabers

A family of Sabertooth cats. However Tai and Sable are unaware that Sabrina and César are their parents.
  • Berserk Button: Sabrina does NOT like being called Grumpy Cat.
  • Parental Neglect: A sympathetic version. Sabrina is unable to produce milk, so Suzanne took care of them. At first she acts as if she doesn't care about them, but it becomes clear she's keeping her distances out of fear, as she lost her previous cub. She lets go of this during the events of Extinction Lasts Forever, but still hasn't reviled she's their mother.
  • Panthera Awesome: Their Sabertooth cats! It goes without saying.
  • Henpecked Husband: César is this to a degree. Whilst still powerful and capable he follows his more ferocious mates commands.
    Introduced In Prehistoric Revloution 

Big Al

A bull Allosaurus. He is the intended rescue animal for Prehistoric Revolution.
  • Ascended Fanon: His rescue was originally an idea floated around by the fans in the Extinction Lasts Forever reviews, but Darksage and Marc liked the idea so much that they decided to go ahead and write it in.
  • Determinator: Get's the crap beaten out of him by a Red Sand, but he still manages to win his battle against her.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: First appears in chapter two of Prehistoric Revolution, ten chapters before he becomes majorly involved in the plot.
  • Easily Forgiven: Alyssa forgives him rather quickly for leaving her to die in the muddy lakeshore. Granted, she realizes he's changed quite a bit from when she last met him.
  • The Ghost: He may be the character whose rescue Prehistoric Revolution was created for, but barring one appearance in chapter two, he hasn't appeared at all in the story. He finally comes back in Chapter 12 and gets a fair amount of it devoted to him.
  • Meaningful Name: Alekanekelo is Hawaiian for "protector", and he gets himself severely injured protecting Hazel and Flia from Red Sand.
  • No Name Given: His name is never stated, with most people calling him Al. It's Alekanekelo, and he thinks it is embarrassing.
  • Not His Sled: This time around, he doesn't suffer his leg injury from tripping. Instead, he gets it from being mauled by Red Sand.
  • Red Herring: Comments in Chapter 14 in Prehistoric Revolution imply he might not actually be the Big Al that the famous fossil is based on, as him being rescued would cause a Temporal Paradox. Confirmed by Word of Darksage.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Is rescued just after receiving the injury that ultimately killed him in real life (albeit it occurred in a different way than in the original canon).
  • Stock Dinosaurs: Is an Allosaurus fragilis.

Broken Jaw

A juvenile Allosaurus that got his name when he had his lower jaw pulverized by a Supersaurus. Hazel and Flia end up witnessing this event during their mission to rescue an Allosaurus.
  • Adaptational Species Change: In Dinosaur Revolution, since the episode was set in Portugal, Broken Jaw was an Allosaurus europaeus. As all of the characters from that episode were changed to ones from the Morrison Formation, he's now an American Allosaurus, specifically Allosaurus lucasi.
    • Shown Their Work: The fossil Broken Jaw is based upon was from the Morrison Formation.
  • Cain and Abel: Ends up killing one of his siblings after said sibling calls him weak. Granted, they did abandon him to die and still don't have any sympathy for him.
  • Children Are Innocent: Is this as a hatchling. Which makes Woodstock breaking his jaw that much sadder.
  • Inter Species Adoption: After being abandoned by his mother, he's adopted by Caius and Flit. The similarities to The Lion King are completely intentional, for reasons noted under Caius and Flit's character sheet.
  • Interspecies Romance: Has a crush on Alyssa. While both are Allosaurus, this trope is still in effect because Alyssa is an A. fragilis, while Broken Jaw is an A. lucasi.
  • Meaningful Name: His jaw was broken when he was a child due to being on the receiving end of Woodstock's Tail Slap and has healed at on odd angle. Now, the upper and lower jaws no longer align properly when his mouth is closed.
  • Not Good with Rejection: Attacks Big Al because Alyssa likes Al more than him and says as much. Downplayed, though: he only really becomes antagonistic toward Al after the latter starts mocking him.
  • Prehistoric Monster: Averted: he acts like a normal child.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Double Subverted: Unlike in the original, he's an American Allosaurus. However, he's the much less well known Allosaurus lucasi, instead of the more popular A. fragilis.
  • Unexpected Character: While Big AL appearance in Prehistoric Revolution, no one expected Broken Jaw to show up, as his story took place at both a different time and a different continent than Al's did.
  • White Sheep: Up to Eleven: he's the only member of his entire species that isn't portrayed in a selfish or morally ambiguous manner.
  • Youre Not My Mother: Just prior to the Battle of the Salt Plains, he says a much to his mother for abandoning him to die as a baby. This is probably one of the few times that this trope is used and nobody bats an eye.

Woodstock

A juvenile Supersaurus, she is the one that gave Broken Jaw his titular injury.

Clearwater

Woodstock's son.

Alyssa

A female Allosaurus that ends up trapped in a muddy lake bank.

Charles

A male Diplodocus and the leader of his herd.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Flia and Hazel from a Marshosaurus with a Tail Slap.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Briefly appears in the very first chapter of the story, offering Hazel and Flia some directions, then returns in Chapter 7.
  • Dented Iron: Is missing a few of his back spines due to an attack by a predator.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Has no hard feeling over Woodstock accidentally polluting the watering hole by knocking the dying Shirley into it, as she was protecting her son. In fact, he even offers to let the two join his herd as they migrate.
  • Southern Gentleman: Acts like one, continuing the story's trend of having sauropods act like nobility.
  • Tail Slap: He's a diplodocid, animals known for having whip-like tails. It comes with the territory.
  • You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: His reaction to Hazel asking him if he has seen any Allosaurus. Fortunately, he buys her excuse.

Caius and Flit

A Ornitholestes and Rhamphorhynchus duo, they are Broken Jaw's best friends.

Shirley

A male Torvosaurus.
  • Adaptational Species Change: Is now aT. tanneri, instead of the European T. gurneyi.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: While he's by far the cruelest character in the entire series, his death does not solve all of the stories conflict, as the heroes still have to cross the Salt Plains.
  • Expy: Of the Leopard Seal from Happy Feet.
  • For the Evulz: His reason for massacring an entire herd of Stegosaurus and not eating them.
  • My Death Is Only The Beginning: While he goes down in the exact same way he did in Dinosaur Revolution, this time around, he falls into the Watering Hole, rendering it undrinkable and causing Woostock's herd to abandon her and Clearwater. The duo decide to migrate with Charle's herd, with Broken Jaw, Caius and Flit following them for survival.
  • No Name Given: His real name is never revealed, so Hazel names him Shirley as an insult.

Watering Hole Dinosaurs

The dinosaurs who live around the Watering Hole.
  • Fantastic Racism: Averted: no matter what species you are, herbivore or carnivore, so long as you respect the rules of the Watering Hole, you will be treated fairly.
  • Honor Before Reason: They all abandon Woodstock and Clearwater for contaminating the lake by throwing the dying Shirley into it, even though Shirley broke the truce first by attacking Clearwater at the lakeshore.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: They all call out Woodstock on killing Shirley, not because he didn't deserve to die, but because she threw him into the Watering Hole after killing him, which now means all the water is tainted.
  • Truce Zone: They regard the Watering Hole as this, believing that no fighting should happen near it. It's mainly because they don't want to posion the water with blood from a dead dino.

Red Sand

Broken Jaw's mother.
  • Abusive Parents: Abandons her son to die after he takes a head injury. Granted, he probably wouldn't have survived it under normal cirumstances, and the fact that he did so is a small miracle, but still. Overlaps with Parental Neglect, given that she normally thinks like any regular animal would.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: She normally prefers strategy, but if she's angry, she'll resort to this. This ends up being her undoing.
  • Big Bad: The villain that fills this role the most in Prehistoric Revolution, as she provides the most opposition to Flia and Hazel.
  • Bit Character: Initially Played Straight, but Averted in later chapters.
  • The Bully: Big Al calls her and the rest of the Yellow Skins this, as they always seem to take advantage of the grey skins (A. fragilis) for food, then enjoying the spoils the other allosaurs earned. While Red Sand herself doesn't normally count as this, she definitely counts as this when Al calls her a bully, as she had just stolen his kill because it was an easy meal.
  • Dirty Coward: Al outright tells her that, for all her talk of being a tough predator and one of the strong who survives, she is this at heart, relying on others to do what she cannot, then stealing the spoils. This is enrages her enough to attack him.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Outright refuses Hazel and Flia's efforts to heal her, to the point that she tries to kill them. This leads directly to her death.
  • Enemy Eats Your Lunch: Kills and eats a Drinker just before Al catches it.
  • Expy: Of Raven Branwen.
  • Evil Matriarch: Downplayed
  • Fatal Flaw: Pride: her arrogant belief in her own superiority, even if she has good reason to believe this, lead her to continue attacking Al even after she's severely injured, which ends up killing her.
  • Foil:
    • To her son, Broken Jaw.
      • Broken Jaw is rather kind and friendly, while Red Sand is a Jerkass.
      • Broken Jaw is somewhat timid, while Red Sand is combative.
      • Broken Jaw is a team player, while Red Sand is a lone wolf.
      • Broken Jaw, while occasionally arrogant, is willing to swallow his pride and accept defeat. Red Sand's Fatal Flaw is Pride.
      • Broken Jaw is fully capable of empathizing with others and is friends with Caius and Flit. Red Sand has an It's All About Me mindset and cannot even be bothered to show kindness to her family.
      • While Broken Jaw may not like it, he's willing to accept the mercy of hazel and Flia, and ultimately prospers from it. Red Sand, however, rejects that same kindness and pays for it with her life.
    • She's also one to Takomo, Al's mentor - Takomo is very friendly, acts in a parental manner, and gives Al good advice on how to succeed in the hunt. Red Sand, in contrast, is aloof, distant, and unhelpful to her own son. And while Takomo goes out in a blaze of glory via a Heroic Sacrifice, Red Sand suffers a very Undignified Death.
  • Freudian Excuse: Her way of thinking has been shaped heavily by living on the Salt Plains, which is quite blatantly a very harsh place to live. Notably, her Motive Rant in Chapter 15 is what finally gets Hazel to accept that dinosaurs have a good reason for living in The Social Darwinist mindset.
  • I Am A Humanitarian: Eats one of her own kids after he is mortally wounded.
  • I Have No Son!: Downplayed: she disinherited Broken Jaw (or did the dinosaurian equivalent, at least) after he was crippled by Woodstock. She still considers him her son, however. He most definitely reciprocates the feeling, but goes much farther than she does.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Is brutally run through the dried of remains of an Alcovasaurus, grievously wounding her. Despite this, she tries to attack Hazel and Flia even after taking such a severe wound, only to be knocked backwards by Al, resulting in Red Sand being impaled AGAIN, this time at least once through the neck, which finally kills her.
  • It's All About Me: To the extreme - even her family isn't safe from this.
    • Seems to be a species wide trait, as her children and several others of her kind also display this trope.
  • Jerkass: Big time. She really enjoys being a jerk to everyone.
  • Karmic Death: Her extreme aggression and Social Darwinist attitudes end up biting her in the ass when she tries to attack Flia, Hazel and Al after she's impaled on an Alcovasaurus skeleton. Al's retaliation causes her to impale her neck against one of the stegosaur's spines, killing her.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Any scene involving her in Prehistoric Revolution is, if not darker, than at least more serious in tone than the rest of the story. Unlike Diablo, there is nothing humorous about her, and she actually acts worse than him - she killed and ate one of her children for being weak (granted, said child was already mortally wounded, so this counts as a Mercy Kill, but still).
  • Mercy Kill: Breaks the neck of one of her offspring after he is mortally wounded.
  • No Sympathy: Does not have any for Broken Jaw. This extends to any of her children that she deems weak.
  • The Social Darwinist: Big time. She abandons Broken Jaw because of his facial injury and doesn't look back.
  • So Proud of You: Says as much to Broken Jaw when she sees that he survived his injury. He's not exactly willing to accept it.

Takomo

A male Allosaurus fragilis.

Joel

A sick member of Charles' herd.
  • Convenient Terminal Illness: Flia outright states that his sickness was fatal, as the herd members have figured out how to determine whether or not a sick animal will survive. It's implied this is why he chose to stay behind - he knew he wouldn't survive any way, so he wanted to make sure that Flia and Hazel could escape.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Doesn't try to run when surrounded by a pack of Allosaurus. It's implied he knew that he wouldn't survive long even if he did escape.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Stays behind when the rest of the herd goes to the park to stop the predators from following them.
  • Red Shirt: Dies in the very same chapter he was introduced in.

Ellis Rey

Marcus Brother, and one of the new recruits for the park.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: A skilled engineer like his brother, but only when motivated, otherwise he would rather laze about.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Was first shown off in a piece of art for the series two years prior to his actual appearance.
  • Last Episode, New Character: Shows up in the final chapter of Prehistoric Revolution. He's set to have a larger role in The Long Night of Winter.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He messed up the programming on the time portal due to be the only one working on it, meaning that, during The Long Night Of Winter, instead of ending up in Prehistoric Alaska at the beginning of Summer and staying there for three months, they arrive at the beginning of winter and are stuck there for four months. Hazel does not take this well.

Daisy White

One of the new recruits for the park.

Chris Sinclaire

One of the new recruits for the park.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: As with Daisy, see Ellis' entry.
  • Last Episode, New Character: Again, see Ellis' entry.
  • Not Good with People: a type 2 preferring a strict zoo keeper approach. He is also a little hard to work with as he is cocky, pessimistic and a little prideful. He looks down on Hazel due to her age. He is good at his job though.
     Introduced in Prehistoric Christmas bash 

Beth Veran (nee Silva)

Hazel's mother.
  • The Ghost: While she's mentioned throughout the story, she doesn't show up until the very last chapter.
  • Last Episode, New Character: Only shows up in the final chapter of the story. She's confirmed to have a larger role in The Long Night of Winter.
  • My Beloved Smother: She does care about Hazel, but can be overprotective at times.
  • Parents as People: Isn't necessarily a bad person, but losing her husband caused her a fair amount of pain, and the amount of extra work she had to do to ensure her family had a decent life caused her to spend quite a bit less time with Hazel and her sister, which soured her relationship with the former.
  • What Measure Isa Non Human?: She see's the Residents as nothing more then man-eating Monsters,and dumb animals. She corrects her thinking after befriending Juniper, Plio, Sabrina and a tour of the park with them.

Hanna Veran

Hazel's sister.
  • The Ghost: She may be important to the story, but doesn't show up in person until the very end.
  • Last Episode, New Character: The same as her mom.
  • Oh, Crap!: She has this reaction when Hazel reveals that, do to Nigel desynching the time portal, not only will they be stuck in Prehistoric Alaska for three months, but they'll return to the present two years after they left. It's more pronounced than her mom, since she was supposed to go back to school in three months.
  • Fish out of Water: Unlike her sister she has no understanding of prehistoric animals.She dons't even recognize a Triceratops.
    Introduced in The Long Night of Winter 

Patchi

spoiler: A Pachyrhinosaurus with a hole in his frill. The Hero of Walking with Dinosaurs.
  • Adaptational Personality Change: Appears to be a little gruffer and aggressive than he was in the film. Justified, though, in that his herd went through a huge amount of crap before they reached their winter feeding grounds.
  • Five-Second Foreshadowing: The only indication that he would show up in this story was the fact it is set in Prehistoric Alaska.
  • Trauma Conga Line: His herd is forced out of their summer feeding grounds by a pack of Albertosaurus, who also massacre a large number of them, and then they lose even more of their number to another pack of Albertosaurus, as well as an overflowing stream they are forced to cross. As is if that wasn' enough, when they finally reach their winter feeding grounds, the park has set up shop there... right as winter is about to start.
  • Unexpected Character: Considering that most people put Fanon Discontinuity on the movie he appeared in, yes.

Scar

A juvenile male Edmontosaurus regalis.
  • Last of His Kind: Specifically, of his herd - the rest were killed in a mudslide.
  • No Name Given: He never tells anyone his name, so Scowler just decides to call him Scar. This drives the poor kid to tears.
    • As for why he doesn't give his name, it's implied he's in shock from losing his entire herd.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't speak at all. Granted, it's implied he's simply not in the mood to speak, rather than a lack of ability to talk period.
  • Unexpected Character: Not many people were expecting the protagonist of March of the Dinosaurs to show up here.

Gorgon

A Gorgosaurus who was the main antagonist of Walking with Dinosaurs.—-
  • Big Bad: Is shaping up to be this. He has found out about the Park and is rallying the flesh-eaters to feast!.
  • Evilcripple: Due to Patchi breaking his arm in the film it is now malformed.
  • The Don: He is compared to this in story. Not only does he command a fierce pack, but has an alliance with all the other predators which he can call on. It's stated he lends predators land to live on in exchange for their services.
