Indominus rex

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8idkyx0.jpg
"It's killing for sport."
Aggression Index: Very High
Park Attraction: Coming Soon
Diet: Carnivore

Appearances: Jurassic World | Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

Owen Grady: ''"You made a genetic hybrid, raised it in captivity. She is seeing all of this for the first time. She does not even know what she is. She will kill everything that moves.
Owen Grady: She is learning where she fits in the food chain... and I'm not sure you want her to figure that out.

The hybrid dinosaur that was created to be the new mascot of the park. Naturally, everything that could go wrong does go wrong and she becomes the main antagonist that terrorizes the park.


  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: She has a set of massive Therizinosaurus-derived claws on her hands that can gouge cement and pierce bullet-proof glass.
  • Ax-Crazy: All other dinosaurs kill for food and self-defense, this one is a depraved Sadist that kills For the Evulz.
  • Big Bad Ensemble:
    • Acts as the main dinosaur antagonist in World. What sets her apart from the previous dinosaur villains is a mix of her intelligence and depravity; not only does she kill for pleasure and sport, but she's smart enough to cause the breakdown of Jurassic World.
    • Forms this with Toro the Carnotaurus in the first season of Camp Cretaceous; she directly threatens the main group of kids several times in the early stages of its rampage, but disappears after becoming occupied with the events of the film, after which Toro takes over as the main threat.
  • Broken Ace: One of the greatest and most fearsome predators in Jurassic World... and also an unstable sociopath.
  • Cain and Abel: She had a sibling, whom she killed and ate.
  • Chameleon Camouflage: Her cuttlefish DNA grants her this ability, similar to the Carnotaurus in the novels, from which she also has a bit of DNA. However, she does not use this ability very much, and due to her neglectful upbringing, may not know she has it or that she's using it.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: She's the first dinosaur bred specifically for increased aggression, both for increased thrill factor and, more surreptitiously, as a prototype bioweapon. Plus she's raised in complete isolation with no positive associations other than the crate that brings her food. Naturally, when she finally breaks out, she attacks just about everything in sight. Also, she's actively the main cause and central focus of the film's major crisis, whereas previous dinosaur main antagonists like the original raptors, the T. rexes, and the Spinosaurus were simply the most dangerous hazard that happened to be present during a crisis.
  • Create Your Own Villain: About as literal an example as you could find. The scientists at Jurassic World created her, and the frankly appalling conditions she was in certainly shaped her into the monster she is. Granted, a genetically engineered dinosaur is a bad idea right off the gate, but intentionally designing her to be aggressive, smart, and scary, and making her completely isolated from other living things? If they had gone for a nice herbivore or even found a way for her to be able to be around other dinosaurs or a trainer, she probably wouldn't have been as bad.
  • Cruelty by Feet: She does this a couple of times, and in both instances, it's where her victims are completely helpless in their situations. She kills Katashi Hamada this way; she picks him up and grasps him in her hand, throws him onto a puddle, and splashes her foot in the puddle directly where he is, crushing him instantly. Later on, when she attacks the Ankylosaurus, she rolls it upside-down and pins it beneath her foot, causing it to be unable to escape, and she chomps down on its head.
  • Dark Action Girl: She is a fierce and cruel dinosaur, and was bred to be female like most of the other animals in the park.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: She certainly looks dragon-like, although Colin Trevorrow stated they were trying not to make her look like a dragon, something that was very difficult. This may have been invoked for obvious reasons.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: For Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. She seems to be the Big Bad of Season 1, but she gets tangled up in the events of Jurassic World, leaving Toro to be the season's Big Bad. By the time of Season 2, she's already dead, with Brooklynn and Darius seeing her corpse (although it is never being shown on-screen).
  • The Dreaded: She was specifically created to be this to boost ticket sales for Jurassic World. It worked. Way too well. To the point that even the other animals in the Park are terrified of her. She manages to scare the highly territorial Pteranodons and Dimorphodons out of the Aviary, and invokes an "Oh, Crap!" face in an Ankylosaurus.
  • Enfant Terrible: The film opens with her and her sibling hatching. Sometime after that, she ate her sister.
  • Evil Is Bigger: In a spectacularly dubious piece of Inventional Wisdom, she was actually built to invoke this, as the largest and most knowingly malicious theropod in history.
  • Feathered Fiend: If we're to assume that the quills on her head and arms are meant to be feathers. It may come from the fact that she's part raptor.
  • For the Evulz: The I. rex kills simply for sportnote .
  • Frankenstein's Monster: The dinosaur equivalent.
  • Freudian Excuse: It's repeatedly mentioned that the various circumstances since her creation (confinement in a much too small paddock, no one to imprint to upon birth, lack of interaction with anything but the crane that brings her food) have led her into becoming an unstable, ultra-violent sociopath.
  • Genius Bruiser: She's big, and she's smart.
  • Giant Equals Invincible: An absolute juggernaut that is completely unaffected by machine-gun fire, rockets, rifle bullets, tranqs, and shotguns throughout the movie. Even multiple fights with other huge dinosaurs and getting rebar speared into her barely even slow her down, so it would be fitting that she would ultimately be taken down by the one predator on the island bigger than her.
  • Go Mad from the Isolation:
    • Her lonely upbringing likely contributed to her psychosis. She is shown to be capable of communication with the Velociraptors, implying that she perhaps needed to communicate, but as Owen notes, the only positive relationship she has at all is with the crane that delivers her food.
    • This is also a bit of a Mythology Gag toward The Lost World book: the raptors on Isla Sorna grew up without any parental figures to raise and teach them properly and thus turned into vicious, feral predators that attack their own kin and murder for sport. They thus act exactly like I. rex does.
  • Gone Horribly Right: Claire and Dr. Wu wanted a dinosaur that was bigger, badder, and more intelligent than the T. rex or the raptors. Well, they got her... Hoskins wanted a deadly Living Weapon. He got that, too...
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Her Aggression Index is "Very High".
  • Horrifying the Horror: Even the highly aggressive Pteranodons and Dimorphodons are scared of her.
  • Immune to Bullets: During her attack against the ACU team, one trooper shoots her multiple times with a shotgun to no effect. Later, during the nighttime ambush, she takes several full mags of combined assault rifle fire and seems completely unphased (in fact the sparks flying off her and lack of blood seem to suggest the bullets are at least partially deflecting off her osteoderms). It takes Owen's big game brush rifle to visibly punch holes in her, and she doesn't seem hindered in any way by the shots.
  • Innate Night Vision: Has infrared vision, courtesy of snake genes in her genome. Coupled with her camouflage and ability to change her body temperature, this means she is completely undetectable to humans in environments like the Jurassic World jungle, yet she can easily track her prey.
  • It Can Think:
    • The most dangerous feature of the I. rex isn't any of her mix and match body parts, but that they intentionally made her hyper-intelligent, even more than the raptors are naturally. The raptors have problem-solving intelligence — the I. rex seems to be outright capable of deductive reasoning, observing that 1) the humans inserted something under her flesh (an RFID chip), 2) the humans seem to be able to track her even when they can't see her, and therefore rationally concluding that 3) the thing they inserted must be how they're tracking her, so she claws out the chip.
    • She orchestrates her own escape; using decoy tactics and the understanding that monitoring devices in her enclosure can be fooled by shifting her thermal profile.
      • Her problem-solving ability is no slouch, either — when dealing with an Ankylosaurus, she first attempts to bite it in half and she widens her jaw around it, which fails, but she immediately flips it over once she realizes it has a soft underside after getting some purchase with her claws.
  • Just Desserts: The mosasaur drags her to a watery grave in the film's climax.
  • Karmic Death: Seeks to be the strongest predator on the island, only for an even stronger predator to drag her, thrashing and wailing, to her end.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: She munches on Eddie after he decided to ditch the campers.
  • Knight of Cerebus:
    • In comparison to previous dinosaur antagonists, this one is the most threatening, homicidal, intelligent, depraved, and frightening. She also manages to kill the Hammond expy Simon Masrani, who only wants to delight the visitors, much like Hammond, and dies trying to stop this dino from going on a rampage, which shows how much a dangerous threat she is: not even the park owner can stop her.
    • In Camp Cretaceous, her appearance marks the point where the show transitions from a "kids at camp" story to a lost-on-the-island survival thriller, and is the only dinosaur that kills any humans onscreen during the first season (including one just seconds after she enters the story).
  • Large and in Charge: She effectively becomes this when she communicates with and takes over the Velociraptor pack.
  • Lean and Mean: She's huge but lanky, with long limbs (by theropod standards) and a curiously sunken, skeletal face.
  • Leitmotif: The Indominus is the first dinosaur in the franchise to have a theme only for her, a series of foreboding notes. It gets a notable reprise in Fallen Kingdom when the sub finds her skeleton at the bottom of the Mosasaurus lagoon.
  • Light Is Not Good: Her natural color is white when not activating her camouflage.
  • Lightning Bruiser: She is the largest theropod dinosaur, but it does nothing to hinder her speed.
  • Living Weapon: Hoskins had her made to be this and then fight the raptors to give him a good opportunity to sell one of the two for military use.
  • Mascot: This creature was made for the express purpose of usurping this role from Tyrannosaurus to stave off waning public interest in the park. On a meta-level, the I. rex's physical profile and almost skeletal, ghastly appearance is almost a one-to-one for the famed T. rex skeleton in the series' logo.
  • Made of Iron: She shrugs off tranq darts, nets, cattle prods, and automatic weapons-fire like they're nothing. She charges and kills an ACU guard emptying a combat shotgun into her without even breaking her stride. Shooting her just makes her angrier. Only ANTI-TANK weapons can even stun her: minigun bullets force her to retreat into an enclosure, and a rocket launcher only succeeds in knocking her down and frightening her off. She even takes a direct hit to the face from an Ankylosaurus tail (hypothesized by paleontologists to be capable of breaking a T. rex's leg) without any noticeable damage. It takes the combined might of the T. rex, the last Velociraptor Blue, and the Mosasaurus to finally bring her down.
  • Meaningful Name: "Indominus" means "fierce" or "untamable". The former because she was designed to be the ultimate dinosaur, the latter because she can't be controlled.
  • Mighty Roar: Her official page states that the I. rex has a roar of 140 to 160 decibels.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: She has attributes and abilities from nearly every creature in her genetic composition. The "base genetic template" was a T. rex, but then they tweaked and spliced in elements from many different species:
    • The T. rex template provides her overall body plan and an extremely strong bite force, although her own overall skull shape isn't quite as robust as a Tyrannosaurus's.
    • Horns across her head and body are from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, Rugops, and Giganotosaurus DNA. This gives her an almost demonic appearance and a very tough hide, ignoring wounds from other dinosaurs and shrugging off multiple shotgun blasts. This theropod blend also gives her a set of teeth that regrow quickly.
    • Camouflage from cuttlefish DNA — the DNA was intended to speed up growth, meaning she's also much larger than a T. rex would be at her age. Her standard color is albino-white, but when in the forest it can shift to a very convincing brown-speckled-with-green pattern.
    • Wide-opening jaws, swallowing ability, and infrared vision are apparently from snake DNA.
    • Huge, somewhat conical teeth from Deinosuchus.
    • The ability to shift her body temperature, from tropical frog DNA. This was meant to allow her to survive without a hitch in Isla Nubla's tropical climate, but it resulted in Indominus having the ability to hide from infrared sensors. The end result is that in a dark forest at night, you can't see the I. rex due to its camouflage and your heat sensors are useless — but she can see you with her own heat vision.
    • Long clawed arms, quills, and a slimmer head profile from Velociraptor DNA. Also a source of her heightened intelligence over a T. rex. Being part-raptor means the raptor pack pauses instead of immediately attacking her, starts communicating with her (giving friendly raptor-like chirps), and accepts the huge I. rex as their new Alpha.
    • The main source of her large arms with huge claws is actually stated to be Therizinosaurus.
    • Opposable thumbs from an unknown source.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: The I. rex has lots and lots of sharp, irregular teeth, similar to the trio of Vastatosaurus rex from King Kong (2005). Just take a look at this.
  • No-Sell: Minigun rounds? No big deal. An Ankylosaurus' tail club? 'Tis but a scratch! Velociraptor attacks? Like the bite of a flea! The Indominus only really has a hard time when she comes face-to-face with the veteran Tyrannosaurus, Roberta/Rexy.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: One of the only dinosaurs (along with her successor, the Indoraptor) in which this is deliberately averted. It's made explicitly clear she doesn't kill for food or some other natural reason, only for the enjoyment of itnote  and being created to be hyper-aggressive.
  • Oh, Crap!: She tends to inspire this reaction from anyone who crosses her path, but she herself gets one when the Mosasaurus is about to drag her into the lagoon; she gets a look of utter terror on her face.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Because of her genes and secluded upbringing she pretty much kills everything on sight either for sport or simply because she has nothing else to do and was designed to be aggressive.
  • Plot Tailored to the Party:
    • Almost the entire movie consists of various attempts to neutralize her and being countered by a revealed ability perfect for the situation. Justified as she was intentionally given a high intellect and several camouflage abilities as part of Hoskins' and Wu's scheme to create the perfect living weapon.
    • Season 1 of Camp Cretaceous is structured around the timeline of the Indominus's rampage in the film, with the creature appearing or disappearing from the show depending on whether the film accounts for her whereabouts at any given point (with the only overlap between the two being the film's aviary scene, which the campers witness from a different angle).
  • Prehistoric Monster: A genetically-engineered hybrid dinosaur made from various DNA of prehistoric and modern-day animals, deliberately designed to be bigger and meaner than T. rex with exaggerated predatory features, and spent most of its life in an isolated, small enclosure. The result? A vicious, unstoppable monster bent on slaughtering the entire population of dinosaurs and humans on the island for sport.
  • Product Placement Name: Claire gets investors to back the I. rex reveal, leading to "Verizon Wireless Presents the Indominus rex". Lowery is not amused.
  • Psycho Prototype: It turns out Hoskins knew perfectly well what he was doing when he ordered that the I. rex be made an aggressive predator with high intelligence (apart from the sheer hubris of believing he could control her); he wanted to sell her genetic template as a terror weapon, or possibly the Velociraptors if they brought her down.
  • Rapid Aging: Dr. Wu's stated reason for giving her cuttlefish DNA.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She has red irises.
  • Rule of Cool: Deconstructed. She was designed to be the biggest, baddest, coolest dinosaur of all time. This led to her becoming a violent, uncontrollable, sadistic monster.
  • Sadist: She doesn't strictly kill for pleasure, she hunts for it. This is most chillingly brought to light upon discovering she left one member of the Apatosaurus herd she slaughtered still alive to expire in an excruciating slowness.
  • She Is the King: Indominus rex translates to "Untamable King" or "Unbeatable King", but this "king" is female.
  • Skull for a Head: Given her skin is typically white and her skull has recesses in the exact locations that the cavities on a Tyrannosaurus skull are located, it gives this impression.
  • Slasher Smile: There are several instances where the I. rex seems to be sadistically smiling at all of the death and chaos she's caused on the island, mainly because she has no lips and so her teeth are constantly exposed.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Her neck and back are armored by pointy osteoderms inherited from her abelisaur genetic contributors — namely Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus, and Rugops — that emphasize her menacing appearance and nature.
  • Stealthy Cephalopod: The Indominus rex can camouflage itself against the jungle backdrop, with Dr. Wu later saying that this is a direct result of the cuttlefish DNA used to create it.
  • Stealthy Colossus: Thanks to her ability to camouflage herself and hide her heat signature, when she doesn't want to be found she is virtually undetectable.
  • Super Intelligence: Her intelligence isn't even human-like, it's above-average human intelligence. Not only it can figure out it is being tracked by RFID despite knowing nothing about the technology or the human's tracking ability, but it can set a trap with it, seemingly figuring out how Pteranodons and Dimorphodons will react to their aviary being broken into and communicate with another species because it shares a part of her DNA.
  • Super Toughness: She is extremely durable. Getting hit in the head by an Ankylosaurus just annoys her, rather than breaking her skull. In the fight with Rexy, she survives getting bitten on the neck and keeps fighting. Nothing short of getting dragged into the water by the one predator bigger than she is stops her.
  • Super Prototype: The Indominus is the first fully developed true dinosaurian hybrid and is far stronger than her successor the Indoraptor, being largely unharmed by even heavy ordnance and capable of overpowering Rexy, whereas the Indoraptor was hurled out of a window by Blue.
  • Tortured Monster: Given that she was deliberately engineered to be as aggressive and vicious as possible, and raised in total isolation. Owen theorizes that her actions are driven by the fact that she has no idea how to interact with her environment; therefore, she sees any living creature as a threat.
  • Trampled Underfoot: Stomps Katashi Hamada to his death after he and his team are sent to use non-lethals against her.
  • T. Rexpy: One of the creatures making up her genetic material is Tyrannosaurus rex, which shows in her physical appearance. She's a gigantic predator, even larger than T. rex, with a similar bulky build and large head. However, her arms are much longer than T. rex's, she's able to use them for grasping, and her body is covered in Spikes of Villainy. Additionally, she has odd features like extendable jaws similar to a snake, and camouflage abilities similar to a cuttlefish.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: An engineered apex predator who has brawn and brain, but little in the way of experience. Played straight with the encounter with the T. rex. While the I. rex is tough and formidable, the T. rex is plainly battle-scarred and has fighting experience. The encounter with the T. rex is the first time the I. rex has encountered an opponent who isn't afraid, knows how to fight and fights back, and is approximately the same size as she is. The T. rex also has the advantage of not going up against the I. rex alone.
  • Villainous Breakdown: When the raptors return to Owen's side, Indominus reacts quite violently. It only gets worse as she fights them while being shot at by Owen, faces off against Rexy, and is distracted and attacked by Blue. That last one causes Indominus to give a body-shaking bellow of pure rage and madness just before she gets manhandled, or rather, dino-handled, by Rexy and Blue and then dragged underwater by Mosasaurus.
  • Villainous Legacy: Her death at the jaws of the ''Mosasaurus'' is confirmed in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, where her skeleton is discovered at the bottom of the Mosasaurus enclosure by a submersible. The bioweapon program that created her, however, deemed her enough of a success to move on to the next stage: the Indoraptor.
  • Volumetric Mouth: Played for horror. She can open her mouth extremely wide, possibly as a result of her snake DNA. Check THIS out!.
  • What Did You Expect When You Named It ____?: Par for the course — naming it after a word meaning "untamable" means all attempts at controlling it will backfire. Owen is close to rolling his eyes when Claire reveals the name.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Being raised in isolation with no other creatures to bond with causes her to see the world outside her paddock as one big hunting ground. The exceptions are the raptors and ultimately, even they aren't safe from her wrath.

    Stegoceratops 

Stegoceratops

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/stegoceratops.png

Appearances: Jurassic World

"That's not a real dinosaur."
Gray Mitchell

One of the planned hybrid attractions, a cross between Triceratops and Stegosaurus.


  • Advertised Extra: While prominently featured in the toy line and video-game adaptations, its role in the film was reduced to a Freeze-Frame Bonus in Wu's laboratory.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Has a Stegosaurus' thagomizer.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: This thing has the tail of a Stegosaurus and the horns of a Triceratops. If this thing is made, imagine what would happen if you pissed it off?
  • The Cameo: While it was originally going to appear alongside the "Diabolus rex", it was cut early in the script's development and only appears in a single, brief scene in Wu's lab, as one of the planned future hybrid dinosaurs.
  • Horn Attack: Has a Triceratops horns.
  • Informed Species: Despite being part-Triceratops according to sources, its skull and horns actually resemble those of Natsutoceratops.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: It has the head and body of a Triceratops and the dorsal plates and tail of a Stegosaurus, and additionally has beetle and gulper eel DNA.

    Indoraptor 

Indoraptor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jurassic_world_fallen_kingdom_indoraptor_updated_by_sonichedgehog2_dcc96yw.png
"Imagine. That one, a fraction of the size — deadly, intelligent, able to hide from the most advanced military technology. A living weapon unlike anything we've ever seen."
Diet: Carnivore

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

"The perfect weapon for the modern age!"
Gunnar Eversoll

A smaller version of the Indominus rex modified with additional raptor DNA, created as part of Hoskins' and Wu's plan to weaponize dinosaur hybrids.


  • Accidental Hero: The Indoraptor is definitely no saint, but, upon escaping thanks to Wheatley, he effortlessly takes down two mercenaries who were all too willing to shoot both Owen and Claire on Mills' orders. Mills flees the scene like the pathetic Dirty Coward he is, allowing Owen and Claire to escape with Maisie and eventually find a way to put an end to the Indoraptor.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: It's hard not to feel bad for him to a certain extent. He lived his entire life being tasered and abused by guards, with no social interaction, was fed very little food and was noticeably thin as a result, and was such a genetic mishmash that he was physically degenerating despite being intended as superior to his Indominus predecessor. Furthermore, unlike the Indominus rex, all of his victims deserved to die (especially Wheatley), making him far more sympathetic.
  • All There in the Manual: Supplementary material says that he taps his claw on the ground because he uses the sounds to echolocate, something never explained in the film itself.
    • According to the junior novelization and a deleted scene, it takes 3 darts to successfully knock him out. Too bad no one told Wheatley this.
    • Supplementary material confirms he is sickly due to his degenerating genetic code, but this is never stated in the film proper, only hinted at.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: The Indoraptor will stop whatever he is doing to focus on someone who is being targeted by a laser sight. Claire and Owen take advantage of this during the climax to lure him into a trap. It initially fails, but Blue manages to finish the job.
  • Ax-Crazy: He is a very sadistic and homicidal dinosaur that loves slaughtering whomever he latches his fangs onto. The Indroraptor also relishes toying with his prey and constantly harassing his victims, sometimes to the point of driving them to tears, (as seen with Wheatley) before brutally killing them.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Eli Mills in the second half of Fallen Kingdom. While Mills is the main threat to the protagonists, the Indoraptor simply happens to be an obstacle that was accidentally unleashed by an ill-informed Egomaniac Hunter and does not cause any problems that weren't already there. In fact, he actually unintentionally saves Owen, Claire, and Maisie when he tackles and mauls Mills' men to death.
  • Blood Knight: Much like his predecessor, the Indoraptor extremely aggressive and thoroughly enjoyed the thrill of the hunt.
  • Character Tic: invoked Similar to one of his spiritual predecessors, the Indoraptor has a habit of tapping his sickle claw on the ground to facilitate his echolocation. In absolute darkness, this claw-tapping is the only way of figuring out his location.
  • Clone Army: The plan was to mass-produce Indoraptors to use as Attack Animals, but the prototype is sickly due to the degeneration of his Velociraptor DNA.
  • Clone Degeneration: Cloning dinosaurs from amber was already a huge leap, but the Indoraptor's genetic material has been so thoroughly messed with on so little source DNA that even with LEGO Genetics he's still sickly. Wu wants to use Blue's DNA to create the next generation to avoid this.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Absolutely everything about this dinosaur seems to have been designed in opposition to the Indominus rex. The Indominus was an albino with a solid color, specifically based on a T. rex with exaggerated raptor features, and hunted for sport. The Indoraptor is a textbook case of Dark Is Evil with gold stripes running down his sides and back, looks more like a big raptor with some T. rex features, and hunts primarily because he was made to do so and out of hunger but still manages to indulge his sadism. He's also specifically male rather than female. His behavior is also very distinct from his predecessor, while the Indominus rex's psychopathic nature seemed to be expressed in a state of perpetual anger and her attacks were her lashing out, the Indoraptor has a sense of humor and seems to take amusement in his actions.
  • Comedic Sociopathy: There is a hint of dark humor and playfulness with the Indoraptor, such as when he lightly pokes Maisie's hair from within his cage to frighten her, or when he visibly smirks maliciously when he's pretending to be tranquilized.
  • Dark Is Evil: Unlike the albino Indominus, the Indoraptor has black scales with gold stripes down his sides.
  • Death Glare: This is his default expression.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: In between his murderous urge keeping him focused on his prey even when he should be focusing on the fight and the various genetic defects making him sickly, Blue's able to go toe to toe with him and eventually kill him even though she's a third of his size and has none of his special mutations.
  • The Dreaded: Eversoll states that the Indoraptor is a perfect blend of the most dangerous creatures that have ever walked the Earth. A little too perfect...
  • Eat the Rich: He devours Eversoll and three wealthy participants (who are all millionaires) at the dinosaur auction when they hide in the elevator and he accidentally opens the doors with his tail.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Maisie unknowingly backs up to the Indoraptor inside his cage. He stretches a long and thin arm out menacingly after her, only to tug her ponytail. This shows that the Indoraptor is the first dinosaur in the franchise to have a sense of humor.
  • Evil Counterpart: The Indoraptor acts as one to Blue. Both are dromaeosaurids and abnormally intelligent compared to the other dinosaurs, but whereas Blue displays signs of loyalty towards the protagonist, the Indoraptor is a psychopathic killing machine.
  • Evil Is Bigger: While much smaller than the Indominus, he is still significantly larger than Blue, and much more ferocious.
  • Feathered Fiend: The same case with the Indominus; his quills might be a form of protofeathers.
  • Faux Affably Evil: The Indoraptor is intelligent enough to have a personality, and he clearly likes to play with his food. He tugs Maisie's hair mockingly when her back is facing his cage and she is unwittingly within his reach. He smirks while pretending to be passed out to lure Wheatley into a false sense of security; and after tearing the hunter's arm off with his jaws and swallowing it in front of him, the Indoraptor gently nuzzles the man's face with his own snout as Wheatley sobs in terror right before savagely mauling him.
  • Flawed Prototype: The Indoraptor is the prototype of the second phase of the hybrid dinosaur bioweapon project, but suffers from Clone Degeneration due to how degraded his constituent genetic material is. His scales are flaking and he's got a respiratory illness. This issue spills over into his behavior. While he can be trained to follow certain visual and auditory stimuli, his ridiculously high aggression makes him impossible to control. Henry Wu intends to use Blue with her far more amenable personality as a template for the next generation of Indoraptor.
  • For the Evulz: The Indoraptor spends the majority of the last act of the film hunting for young Maisie, who is far too small to be worth a decent meal, for no visible reason other than sadistic pleasure.
  • Foreshadowing: In Jurassic World, Hoskins remarks that the Indominus was just the first phase of the project and that the second phase would be to shrink it down a third of the size.
  • Freudian Excuse: It is heavily implied to have been abused and mistreated by the guards as both shown by concept art and briefly in the film proper when he's being tased. It's also implied he's ill, and given that he was literally made to kill, he can't really help what he does.
  • Genre Refugee: The Indoraptor is essentially a Slasher Movie villain in what is normally a dinosaur-based Disaster Movie franchise.
  • Horror Hunger: Indoraptor's reasons for constantly hunting for new prey are partly out of hunger and partly because he was made to do so, but also out of sadism. Combined with the possibility he's suffering some form of hyperthyroidism or metabolic condition, Indoraptor is a unique example of both Tortured Monster and Super-Persistent Predator (see below).
  • It Can Think: The Indoraptor is at least as smart as the Indominus or Blue, as demonstrated repeatedly during his escape. Most notably, it learns how to open a window - something that not even the raptors in the first film could do.
  • Immune to Bullets: Being repeatedly shot at point-blank range with an assault rifle only staggers him for a few moments and pisses him off. In fact, the sound of the bullets hitting the floor when he stands back up seems to suggest the rounds didn't even penetrate his hide.
  • Immune to Drugs: None of the tranquilizer darts he keeps getting constantly poked with ever so much as slow him down unless he's Playing Possum. Decent trait if you don't want the enemy to capture him, bad if you're the one who wants to neutralize him.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Towards the end of the film, the Indoraptor is killed by being rammed through the glass roof of Lockwood's museum room by Blue and impaled on the horns of an Agujaceratops skull on display.
  • Implacable Man: Once the Indoraptor determines his target, he will relentlessly stalk and chase after his victim. Despite having human-like intelligence, he is a vicious, sadistic beast whose only interest is killing, so he cannot be reasoned with. To make matters worse, the Indoraptor is Made of Iron, resisting two doses of a powerful tranquilizer and shrugging off bullets from an assault rifle fired at point-blank range.
  • Informed Attribute:
    • The film hypes the Indoraptor up as the ultimate predator, combining the characteristics of the Indominus and the Velociraptor and being deadlier than both. While he does prove to be a truly ferocious creature, he is quickly put on the defensive by Blue the moment she intervenes. Justified in that Blue was trained by Owen and has plenty of hunting experience from her years alone in Isla Nublar, and supplementary material points out the Indoraptor is a heavily flawed prototype with severe genetic disorders. Another major contributing factor was his obsession with Maisie, preventing him from focusing on Blue for more than a few seconds at a time.
    • Also stated to have an extremely acute sense of smell and sight, but is unable to track down a group of humans moving around in the same room as him because the lights were turned off.note 
  • Innate Night Vision: Surprisingly averted. Despite being based on the Indominus, the Indoraptor lacks his predecessor's infrared vision, something that the heroes try to exploit during his rampage.
  • Ironic Name: In a meta-sense. His name is very obviously and explicitly just a portmanteau of Indominus and raptor, and is treated as such in-universe. But Indo- as a scientific prefix has its own meaning; "Indian," as in the subcontinent, so an alternate, literalist reading of his name is "Indian raptor/thief," which is funny in the context given that he is an artificial hybrid created and housed in a lab in North America.
  • Kick the Son of a Bitch: All of his kills count as he only manages to kill villains and never someone innocent but the biggest one is when he chomps off Wheatley's arm and eats it right in front of him, causing him to cry, before slowly turning him into a snack.
  • The Klutz: A rare non-heroic example. If there is no obstacle between the Indoraptor and his prey, death usually ensues. However, if he has to chase someone, the thing is surprisingly clumsy, bashing his head on walls when turning around or tripping over objects in his path. This ultimately allows Maisie to outrun him after she catches his attention.
  • Large Ham: It's subtle, but the Indoraptor is very overdramatic when it pretends to be tranquilized by Wheatley followed by it subtly Trolling him before it goes in for the kill. Combine that with how the Indoraptor deliberately indulges its sadism as much as possible (i.e., slowly stretching one of its talons towards a terrified Maisie in her bedroom while hiding in the darkness), and one gets the impression that the Indoraptor essentially has a human-level ego and desire for drama.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Much like the Indominus rex, but designed specifically to hunt down and kill targets in combat situations. The Indoraptor boasts excellent agility and strength, and can even shake off tranq darts and rifle rounds.
  • Living Weapon: Like his predecessor, he is a genetic amalgamation of various carnivorous dinosaurs and modern species intended as a bioweapon; but unlike the prototype Indominus, the Indoraptor is the test type.
    Claire: What is that thing?
    Maisie: They made it.
  • Long Neck: He has a long skinny neck that gives his head a wide range of motion.
  • Looks Like Orlok: The director asked the effects crew to use Nosferatu as a reference, so the long claws, gangly limbs, and weird teeth drew inspiration from the vampire. They even borrowed from said movie to do a similar scene in the bedroom where he extends his arm and claws towards Maisie.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Like the Indominus rex from the prior film, his hellish treatment and abuse from his handlers resulted in him being a merciless and ridiculously hyper-aggressive sociopath that can't take orders. Furthermore, the fact that he's made from so many different creatures' genetic codes is shown to have backfired in having him suffer from a degenerative respiratory condition.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: Like the Indominus rex, the Indoraptor has crocodilian fangs, osteoderms, and quills. Unlike his predecessor, he also has raptorial claws on his feet.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Like his predecessor, he has a large mouth full of irregular crocodilian fangs.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: The Indoraptor seriously rivals both the Indominus rex from Jurassic World and the Big One from Jurassic Park as the most terrifying dinosaur in the franchise, most notably in how it's the first creature to not just be sadistic, but petty.
  • No-Sell: The Indoraptor shrugs off being shot with assault rifle shells like they're popcorn and only pretends to be sedated when he's shot with tranqs.
  • One-Man Army: By the time Owen, Claire, and Maisie manage to get out of the basement and back to the main level, the Indoraptor seems to have managed to wipe out Mills and Wheatley's entire security team. This is, after all, what he was specifically designed to do.
    • It's also a case of Nice Job Fixing It, Villain, since our unarmed heroes are at least better equipped to deal with the Indoraptor by themselves rather than having to deal with a few squads of professional mercenaries armed with automatic weapons.
  • Playing Possum: Or pretending to sleep more like it. After being shot by tranquilizer darts, the hybrid pretends to fall asleep as the hunter enters his cage to give him a false sense of safety and attack him once he is close enough.
  • Psycho Prototype: Like the Indominus rex, the Indoraptor is a bloodthirsty monster, to the point of being uncontrollable. Wu considers this a failure and wants to use Blue as the template for a new generation of less bloodthirsty Indoraptors. As a reference to this, the Indoraptor 2.0 featured in various spinoffs, such as Jurassic World Alive, has Blue's white-and-blue color scheme.
  • Raptor Attack: His dromaeosaurid genetic contributions are more apparent than the Indominus's, as he possesses raptorial claws on his feet.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: He is the most dangerous dinosaur in the movie, and his unnatural, fiery-red eyes reinforce this point.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Has some distinctly snake-like elements with his head and neck.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Appears to go one after escaping his cage as he goes about killing every single person associated with the dinosaur auction he can get his teeth on, as he really hates humans for locking him up, shocking him, and trying to steal his teeth. This becomes beneficial for the movie's heroes since the ''Indoraptor's'' victims were all working for (or trying to buy from) the BigBad Eli Mills.
  • Rule of Symbolism: It's finally killed by being impaled on the fossilized horns of an Agujaceratops skull by Blue. In other words, a monstrous genetic hybrid that barely even counts as a dinosaur and which should never have existed in the first place is killed by the literal remnants of a real dinosaur.
  • Running on All Fours: His long arms combined with his low profile allow him to do this for a speed boost.
  • Sadist: When Wheatley and Maisie are at his mercy, the Indoraptor takes a moment to observe them crying in despair before going in for the kill. In the case of the former, he can even be seen smirking maliciously before dismembering him.
  • Savage Wolves: Being semi-quadrupedal, there are some wolf-like elements to his movements. There's even a rather werewolf-like scene of him roaring at a full moon while perched atop a gothic rooftop.
  • Shout-Out: He was heavily inspired by Count Orlok from Nosferatu, most specifically in the scene where it reaches for Maisie in her bedroom.
  • Sickly Prodigy: He's got flaking scales and there's something off with his breathing, hinting that he's got some form of illness from genetic decay. Doesn't stop him from being utterly terrifying, though.
  • Slasher Smile: He gives one while distracting Wheatley with his tail before going for the kill.
  • The Sociopath: Like his predecessor and partial genetic contributor, the Indoraptor is an intelligent and sadistic creature that is noted to lack the amiability and empathy demonstrated by Blue — whose DNA is sought to create a more controllable version. He toys with his prey before going for the kill, and deliberately torments and goes after Maisie — a young girl.
  • Spear Counterpart: While the Indominus rex was explicitly stated to be female, the Indoraptor is her male successor.
  • Spikes of Villainy: As with his predecessor, his neck and back are armored by quills and pointy osteoderms.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Once the Indoraptor gets fixated on certain individuals, he will hunt them down relentlessly. He obsessively stalks Maisie and chases her throughout the whole manor during the final act.
  • Stealth Pun: The Indoraptor is a vicious genetic hybrid of the Velociraptor specialized for urban combat and which is only seen mauling people to death throughout Lockwood's mansion in the film's third act. In other words, it's an "indoor raptor."
  • Super-Persistent Predator: The hybrid spends most of the time tracking Maisie wherever she goes.
  • There's No Kill like Overkill: As opposed to quickly dispatching his victims with a few chomps or a slash, he purposefully takes his time killing them, biting, tossing, and tearing at them over and over again while they scream in agony.
  • Tortured Monster: Was implied to have been heavily abused by the guards as shown in concept art images (and we briefly see him being tased and shocked in the auction scene) and was said to have been suffering from a respiratory illness. He was created to kill, so what else could he be expected to do?
  • Trampled Underfoot: Has a close-up scene where he puts his foot on a stuffed animal in Maisie's bedroom.
  • Troll: When Wheatley tranquilizes him, he puts on a big show of passing out and plays possum. When Wheatley clambers into the cell to take a tooth for his collection, the Indoraptor proceeds to play with him, lifting his tail to get Wheatley's attention, then dropping it before he can really see what moved. Each time he looks away, he opens an eye and smirks, clearly enjoying the little game he's playing before he attacks him.
  • Twitchy Eye: Full body example, borders on Marionette Motion, it is so sickly and degenerated that it spasms almost constantly if you look closely.
  • Villainous Rescue: Arrives just in time to kill the armed guards with Mills after he reveals to Owen, Clarie, and Maisie the latter is actually a clone.
  • Vocal Dissonance Squeaks like a bat. He does utter a few more gravely growls, though.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Pretends to be incapacitated by Wheatley's tranqs convincingly enough to successfully lure Wheatley within chomping distance. How he even knows Wheatley would be dumb enough to fall for it is a mystery.
  • Xenomorph Xerox: He hits a lot of checkmarks; glistening white teeth against a jet black body, prone to letting out a low hiss to cornered prey, prowls with a low-profile, able to silently climb up and down walls, elongated profile, a genetic abomination with surprising intelligence to offset an extremely lethal nature.

    Scorpios rex/E750 

Scorpios rex

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/scorpios_rex.png
Diet: Carnivore

Appearances: Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

A frozen experiment that was worked on by Dr. Wu and Eddie. Season 3 reveals it was the first successful hybrid.


  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: It moves its forearms farther than other bipedal dinosaurs in the franchise, and they seem to be more independent of each other.
  • Arc Villain: Like Toro and the Baryonyx pack before, the Scorpios rex serve as the primary antagonists in season 3.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: The greatest weakness of the Scorpios is its chaotic nature makes it extremely easily distracted. It is mesmerized by fire and the first time the kids encounter it, it corners them and could easily have killed them, but gets distracted by the sound of distant dinosaurs, which draws its attention and cause it to completely forget about the kids and run off to chase the dinos.
  • Axe-Crazy: It's even more unstable than the Indominus rex. Much like Indominus, it's shown killing indiscriminately and without reason, being more of a serial killer than a predator, but unlike the Indominus, the Scorpios hates everything, including other Scorpios. It's because of this insane behavior that the other dinosaurs on the island start acting out of character, from lone predators forming packs to docile herbivores attacking anything in their territory.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: It uses the razor-sharp quills on its tail to slash, impale, and inject venom.
  • Catlike Dragons: A giant reptile that acts in a lot of ways more like a big cat than a dinosaur. The way it hunts, killing when not hungry, and taking the kills it does plan to eat into trees are all behaviors typical of big and domestic cats.
  • Dark Is Evil: The Scorpios rex is predominantly black, much like the Indoraptor, and is just as bloodthirsty.
  • Death from Above: Loves to utilize this method, and is hard to spot in the dark.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Despite being the primary threat of Season 3, the Scorpios rex are killed about 3/4ths of the way through the season, with Dr. Wu and his mercenaries serving as the final obstacle faced by the kids before their escape from the island.
  • The Dreaded: Almost every animal on Isla Nublar is terrified of it, and its presence causes them to behave abnormally.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: It gets name-dropped in Season 1 after Brooklynn snoops on Wu's computer.
  • Forgot About His Powers: It never attempts to use its poisonous quills on the campers or Blue during the confrontation in the Jurassic Park ruins. Or the other Scorpios, though they may be immune to their own venom.
  • Gonk: Henry Wu and Simon Masrani lampshade the Scorpios rex as a hideous oddity. Its most prominent features are its short bulldog-like face along with its long and lanky build.
  • The Grappler: The fighting style of the Scorpios rex involves it using its long limbs to wrestle, kick, and pin down its enemies, along with tossing them around with its jaws.
  • Human Popsicle: It was cryogenically frozen before the wires were chewed up.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Its very existence is enough to kill any potential moment of levity in the show.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: After stumbling across a herd of Ankylosaurus, it makes only a few cursory attempts to attack before running off in search of easier prey.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • It's named after scorpionfish (the group that includes the highly venomous lionfish and stonefish) and has venomous quills.
    • Additionally, the name brings to mind the abelisaur Skorpiovenator, and while it is unknown if the Scorpios rex has any DNA from that species, it does have the signature skull shape of the group (tall, but short in length).
  • Mood-Swinger: According to Dr. Wu, the Scorpios is this, placid one moment and then hyper-aggressive the next. We only ever see it in its psychotically murderous mode, though. We do see it suffer from Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!.
  • Murder in the Family: It turns out there are two of them, and Darius hypothesizes that the Scorpios reproduces asexually. The horror that there are two of these psychopathic monsters is somewhat lessened by the fact that they absolutely hate one another, despite very well being parent and child, and they will drop everything to go after each other.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: For the first two seasons, and for much of Season 3, we know next to nothing about it aside from the extremely vague hints that Eddie drops.
  • Our Manticores Are Spinier: Its vaguely cat-like body shape, short human-like face, and venomous tail quills all call to mind the mythical manticore.
  • Outside-Context Problem: Discussed: part of how the Camp Fam has survived this long is by knowing how the dinosaurs should act, and therefore how to avoid them. The Scorpios is a complete unknown, and its presence even causes the rest of the dinosaur population to act erratically.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: The Scorpios is relatively small as far as large predators go; roughly the same size as a Parasaurolophus, it's only slightly larger than the Indoraptor. However, thanks to its many genetic enhancements, it's a deadly killing machine capable of taking out a Ceratosaurus in seconds.
  • Poisonous Person: It can fire venomous quills that can knock out a person in seconds as well as bring down a fully grown Brachiosaurus.
  • Psycho Prototype: The prototype, the first successful hybrid dinosaur Wu made, and an absolutely psychotic killer. Funnily enough, the park execs ended up wanting to put it down not because of its temperament, but because they considered it too ugly to make a good attraction. Even Wu thought this thing was a failure.
  • Pyromaniac: Just about the only thing that can distract it is fire. When it notices a fire nearby it will stop and stare at it.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The eyes of the Scorpios rex are red, and they will sometimes glow ominously in the dark.
  • Rule of Two: It's revealed there are two of them — the second likely the result of the first asexually reproducing. Somewhat luckily for the gang, the two hybrids seem to absolutely hate one another and the minute one spots the other they will drop everything to end each other's life.
  • Spell My Name with an S: It was confirmed by many sources that the creature is spelled with an "o" instead of a "u". This makes its true spelling Scorpios, which is Latin for "scorpion". Despite this, some works still use the term Scorpius.
  • Spikes of Villainy: In addition to the venomous quills on its tail, the Scorpios rex has large spikes growing from its back and head, and it is by far one of the most outright vicious and monstrous creatures in the franchise.
  • There Is Another: Darius and Ben making the shocking discovery that there is not just one Scorpios rex, but two.
  • Truly Single Parent: On learning that there are two Scorpios rex, Darius speculates that it may be the result of the first Scorpios reproducing asexually.
  • Wall Crawl: More than once it climbs trees to ambush the gang, and it later climbs the walls of the visitor center from the first film to attack the other Scorpios.
  • Xenomorph Xerox: Its ability to alternate between bipedal and quadrupedal locomotion along with wall and tree crawling, unnatural jaw (it widens far more than it should) and at least one *Drool* Hello moment give this impression.

    Angel and Rebel

Angel (left) and Rebel (right)

Appearances: Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

A pair of baby Spinosaurus-Sinoceratops (Sino-Spino) hybrids


  • Age Lift: Assuming that the Spinoceratops that appears in Jurassic World Alive is one of the babies from Camp Cretaceous, they were definitely successful in surviving into adulthood.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Type 1 for despite looking more like their Sinoceratops donor and having previously been shown to eat fruit Who's The Boss? shows one of them eating what appears to be fish.
  • Horn Attack: They can use their Sinoceratops-like horns to ram into things.
  • Interspecies Friendship: Angel and Rebel immediately develop a liking towards Firecracker the Brachiosaurus.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: They resemble Sinoceratops with a Spinosaurus-like sail on their backs.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Of all the cute baby dinosaurs that have made an appearance in the franchise, they are arguably the most adorable.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: Along with Firecracker, they end up filling a similar role as animal companions to the campers in the latter half of season four, after Bumpy in the first three seasons.
  • Team Pet: Angel, Rebel, and Firecracker take this role in the last half of season four from the stowaway Compy in the first half and Bumpy in the first three seasons.
  • Temper-Ceratops: Subverted since they are still babies who sometimes play a little rough. Played straight in the final season when they help the campers in fighting off Mantah Corp's mind-controlled dinosaurs.
  • Token Heroic Orc: They are the only hybrid creatures to not antagonize the campers, likely because baby dinosaurs lack the territorial behavior of their adult forms. They even helped out and fought off Mantah Corp's hypnotized creatures.
