    In General 

Dinosaur Protection Group

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/085408f483d649edfd90129486d01b07.jpg

An animal rights group formed by Claire Dearing following the 2015 incident that caused the closing of Jurassic World. They advocate that the dinosaurs on Isla Nublar now constitute endangered species that need to be protected and cared for, and when the imminent volcanic eruption of Mount Sibo becomes known, they do everything in their power to call for the rescue of the dinosaurs to preserve them.


  • Determinator: They don't give up on trying to save the dinosaurs.
  • N.G.O. Superpower: Sadly averted. They don't have enough influence on the US government and rely on donations and private initiatives, and as a result their workplace is anything but a modern office (including a crude elevator, the gates of which don't even fully open). The pro-extinction propaganda, reinforced by Dr. Ian Malcolm's advocacies, is too strong for them to fight against.
  • The Remnant: The core group of the DPG is composed of the only members of Masrani Corporation/Jurassic World's staff who still care about the dinosaurs after the park has been closed and abandoned.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Mills manipulates them in order to find Blue and use her DNA so that Wu can create more Indoraptors.

    Owen Grady 

    Zia 

Dr. Zia Rodriguez

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jurassicworld_fallenkingdom_daniellapineda_700x289.jpg
Played By: Daniella Pineda

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The DPG's paleo-veterinarian. She always wanted to work with dinosaurs, but just as she got an internship with Jurassic World, the Indominus rex escaped, putting her dreams on hold.


  • Badass in Distress: Her Mexican Standoff with Wheatley and his team ends with her being taken captive/hostage and Wheatley threatening to shoot her if she can't use her veterinary skills to keep Blue alive. Later in the film, she's shackled to Blue's cage and has to be freed by Franklin of all people.
  • Butch Lesbian: According to her actress, she is a spunky insufferable tomboy who used to be in the Marines and a lesbian.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She has her moments. Even when she is a captive of Wheatley's merceneries and is threatened with death if she can't save Blue, she still badmouths Wheatley without fearing reprecussions.
  • Defiant Captive: Even as she is held hostage by Wheatley and his fellow mercenaries, she makes it clear to them she doesn't enjoy having to work with them and goes out of her way to badmouth them. She also tells an unaware Wu, who just handcuffed her to Blue's cage and wants her to help him extract Blue's blood for the next Indoraptor batch, that she saved Blue's life with a T.rex blood sample, effectively foiling his plans.
  • If It's You, It's Okay: In a deleted line she tells Owen after a particularly impressive feat that "I don't date men" but would have sex with him, despite it grossing her out.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's short-tempered and irritable, but is unambiguously a good, courageous person.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Downplayed with her short haircut, extensive tattoos, and tomboyish attitude and fashion sense, but she’s obviously still a very attractive woman.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Platonic example with Franklin. She's a tough former Marine who is brave enough to face a team of fully-armed mercenaries without showing fear, while Franklin's a skinny tech guy who prefers avoiding physical exertion.
  • The Medic: As the local paleo-vet, she plays this role.
  • Nerves of Steel: The only reason why she's able to pull a gun on a group of armed merceneries and give them a reason to let her live, as well as working in very close proximity to a Velociraptor to revive her, all while badmouthing every bad guy every chance she gets.
  • Semper Fi: According to Daniella Pineda, she once served in the Marines.
  • Spicy Latina: Relentlessly smart-mouthed and of obvious Hispanic decent due to her last name and being portrayed by a Mexican-American actress.
  • Vasquez Always Dies: Averted; she manages to survive both human and dinosaur-borne threats with naught but her wits and snark to see her through.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: She enjoys making fun of Franklin whenever she has a chance, but they both truly appreciate each other, and is genuinely grateful when Franklin saves her from Wu's clutches.

    Franklin 

Franklin Webb

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jurassic_world_fallen_kingdom_franklin.jpg
Played By: Justice Smith

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

"Am I dead?"

The systems analyst of the DPG. He was formerly an IT technician for Jurassic World, but didn't get called on-site for quite a while; something that Franklin was personally fine with, since he's quite afraid of dinosaurs.


  • Action Survivor: For a guy with a phobia of dinosaurs and zero combat or survival skills, he handles himself quite well when thrown into danger.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Downplayed. He knocks out Wu with a tranq dart when the latter is about to inflict harm on Zia. She chews him out for it, but it seems it's more out of worry about his wellbeing than anything else.
  • Black and Nerdy: Bespectacled tech-guy played by Justice Smith.
  • Born Unlucky: It's just his luck that the day he goes to Isla Nublar is the day the volcano explodes and all the dinosaurs get loose.
  • Butt-Monkey: The guy suffers all kinds of problems throughout the movie, from nearly being eaten by dinosaurs, to nearly drowned, burned by lava, get shot etc. Fortunately, he survived the entire ordeal.
  • Don't Celebrate Just Yet: He cheers happily after climbing up the latter to escape from the Baryonyx. Suddenly the ladder gives way, dropping him back down into the lava-filled room with the pissed-off dinosaur.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Zigzagged. He's self-admittedly afraid of them, but also states that they have as much right to live as a spider or a shark.
  • Expy: He's rather similar to Arby Benton from The Lost World (1995), being a Black and Nerdy youth who is put through hell throughout the story.
  • Geek Physique: He's a pretty skinny young man.
  • Meaningful Name: A tech analyst with the last name of "Webb". The DPG website lampshades it.
  • Nerd Glasses: He's a stereotypical nerd, and he has glasses.
  • Non-Action Guy: Tries to avoid any physical exertion, much less confrontation, and outright says that him and Owen are "incompatible" when Owen mentions having ridden a motorbike through the jungle while accompanied by a pack of Velociraptors. Franklin has exactly one scene in the film where he gets to do something even remotely violent, relying on his brains instead to get at least a few things done most of the time.
  • Noodle Incident: Upon reaching the mainland, Franklin was separated from Owen and Claire after being mistaken for a upper deck worker. The next time we see him, he is a technician under Dr. Wu's supervision.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: Does this when he and Claire encounter the Baryoynx.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Injects Dr. Wu with a tranq-filled syringe when it seems he's about to harm Zia. Compared to the rest of his screentime, it qualifies.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Zia apparently enjoys making fun of him, much to his annoyance, but they both appreciate each other nonetheless, and he even manages to take Wu out with a tranq-filled syringe to save Zia from his clutches.

Lockwood's Household

    Lockwood 

Sir Benjamin Lockwood

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fe91d4b842166c33_600x400.jpg
Played By: James Cromwell

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

John Hammond's former partner in developing the technology to clone dinosaurs.


  • The Atoner: He's come to the conclusion that while the dinosaurs never should have been cloned in the first place, he has a responsibility to them.
  • Big Good: Of the fifth film, taking this role over from both Hammond and Masrani following their deaths.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Downplayed, but his one single known illicit undertaking of cloning his deceased daughter crosses both ethical and legal boundariesnote . Otherwise, Lockwood just wants to secure a safe future for the dinosaurs. Everything shady done in his name is the work of Eli Mills, and Lockwood is entirely unaware of what's actually happening on his own estate.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Hiring Eli Mills was very much a mistake, although Mills supposedly was young and idealistic once.
  • Ill Boy: His health is failing and he's very much on the verge of death.
  • Knight Templar Parent: The man is willing to perform an unethical experiment to bring back his deceased daughter. It is because of this Hammond broke all ties with him.
  • Remember the New Guy?: He was the co-founder of InGen with Hammond before the latter parted ways with him. Hammond never referred to him, but Lockwood's Dark Secret gave Hammond very valuable reasons not to.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute:
    • For all intents and purposes, he is a substitute of Hammond: a rich, elderly man whose lifelong passion has always been dinosaurs and a father founder of InGen whose health is in decline and seeks to make up for past mistakes brought about by good intentions. He even has a cane with an amber head, like Hammond (it may even be Hammond's cane he inherited after the latter's death).
    • He also resembles Norman Atherton, Hammond's partner from the novel who developed the technology that allowed Hammond to clone dinosaurs. However, unlike Atherton, who was a Posthumous Character, Lockwood outlives Hammond.
  • Too Dumb to Live: When Lockwood discovers Mills' plot to sell off the dinosaurs to the highest bidder, he angrily confronts Mills and orders him to turn himself in to the police, not quite realizing the fact that Mills could very easily overpower and murder him, and now has plenty of motive to do so.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He was Hammond's partner, but they had a falling out. There doesn't seem to be any ill will on Lockwood's part though, as he has a grand portrait of Hammond displayed in his manor and speaks fondly of the time they had worked together.

    Maisie 

Maisie Lockwood

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bts2.jpg
Played By: Isabella Sermon

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The "granddaughter" of Benjamin Lockwood.


  • Ambiguously Human: It is unknown whether is she a pure human clone or had her DNA altered like the dinosaurs. This is evident in how she is Not So Different from the Velociraptors.
  • Break the Cutie: The poor girl has a pretty rough night during the climax of Fallen Kingdom. To recap, she's almost grabbed by Indoraptor, basically the dinosaur boogeyman, and locked inside her room by her adoptive father after she discovers his nefarious plans. When she escapes to inform her grandfather of what happened, she instead finds him dead on his bed. Soon after, her adoptive father reveals that she's actually an Artificial Human who's a clone of her supposed 'mother'. She ends up being hunted throughout the mansion by the Indoraptor after it was accidentally released from its cage, who seems to pride itself on traumatizing her the best it could. To top it all off, she is almost Forced to Watch the last of her beloved dinosaurs die of poisonous gas when Claire couldn't bring herself to release them. When the pain is too much to bear, she takes it upon herself to release them, making her the person responsible for unleashing the dinosaurs on human civilization, which will not bode well for her if the public ever manages to learn of this. By the end of the film, she's left orphaned and traumatized with almost nothing left. She's possibly one of the most tragic characters in the series by far, though at least she is seemingly adopted by Owen and Claire who definitely believe that Clones Are People, Too.
  • Children Are Innocent: She's an adorable, curious, kind, and playful young girl who is loved by many characters in the movie. Even the Big Bad Mills seems to be somewhat fond of her. Key word: somewhat. Her innocence means she will not hesitate to save the dinosaurs' lives even if it means exposing them to the human world.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father is never seen nor mentioned and for good reason since as a clone she never had a father in the first place.
  • Idiot Ball: For all her resourcefulness, she does make one glaring mistake in the film. After momentarily escaping the Indoraptor pursuit, she goes back to her room and hides under the bedsheets, thinking that it would be enough to hide herself from the beast, instead of trying to go anywhere safer. Granted, she was panicking and her bedroom is the place she's most familiar and comfortable with, but she should've at least hid under the bed instead of on it, where some blanket won't protect her from the Indoraptor.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother is dead by the time of the movie, and she is raised by her caretaker Iris and her grandfather Benjamin Lockwood. At least, that's what they wanted her to think. She's actually a clone of Lockwood's daughter.
  • Not So Different: With the Velociraptors.
    • Both are clones created in a laboratory.
    • Both are fond of sneaking around among foliage for a Jump Scare (it's implied by her nanny that it's a regular thing she always does).
    • Both are unusually intelligent and resourceful at a young age.
    • Both are excellent escape artists (the shot where Maisie breaks out of a locked bedroom is even filmed very similarly to the raptors of the first Jurassic Park learning to open doors).
    • Both form a bond with Owen, looking up to him as a father-figure.
  • The Prankster: She loves to torment her caretaker Iris with jump scares, much to Iris's dismay.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Her grandfather Lockwood, unable to bear the death of his only daughter, uses his and Hammond's cloning technology to get her back in the form of Maisie.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Lockwood says that she's pretty much the spitting image of her mother. The photo of her mother that Maisie recovered also shows her looking exactly like Maisie when she was young. Makes sense, because Maisie is her clone.
  • Tomato in the Mirror: The reveal that she's actually an artificial human: the clone of her 'mother', Lockwood's daughter, leaves her traumatized and frozen in place until Owen has to physically pull her away.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Let's see, in the span of a single night her grandfather is murdered, her mother figure is sent away, she is physically and mentally abused by her adoptive father, she is told to her face she is nothing but a clone and, to top it all off, a psychopathic dinosaur becomes obsessed with stalking and killing her.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Even ignoring the long term consequences, by releasing the dinosaurs she has ensured the death of a number of people via carnivore.
  • Walking Spoiler: It's difficult to talk about Maisie without revealing that she's a clone.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Because she is a clone instead of a naturally born person, Mills treated her the same way he treated the dinosaurs, as his property. Luckily for her, Owen and Claire do not see it that way with the film ending with the two seemingly adopting her.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: A lot of bad stuff happens to her, she's essentially orphaned by the film's final act, and she pretty much endangers, if not outright dooms, a portion of the U.S. population when she lets the dinosaurs escape the mansion.

    Iris 

Iris Carroll

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jwfkiris.jpg

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The housekeeper of the Lockwood Estate, Maisie Lockwood's nanny, and keeper of the family's secrets.


  • Like a Daughter to Me: Stern though she may be, it’s clear that she dearly loves Maisie, especially when she objects to Mills firing her.
  • Old Retainer: She took care of Sir Benjamin Lockwood's daughter a long time ago, before the accident that killed said daughter and convinced Lockwood to clone her into Maisie.
  • Parental Substitute: To Maisie. And before Maisie, she raised her mother, the original Maisie.
  • Smart People Speak the Queen's English: Invoked when she lectures Maisie on the proper way to pronounce "bath", dismissing the short A pronunciation as barbarism.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: It's unclear what happened to her after Lockwood's murder and her dismissal. She gets killed by the Indoraptor in a deleted scene.

Lockwood's Company

    Mills 

Elijah "Eli" Mills

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mills_trailer_2.png
"Jurassic World… the island… all of that is in the past."
Played By: Rafe Spall

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

"You two. You're the parents of the new world."

Lockwood's ambitious right-hand man who hires Owen and Claire to rescue the dinosaurs.


  • Abusive Parents: Mills is, for all intents and purposes, Maisie's adoptive father should anything happen to Lockwood, which does happen, unfortunately, and while he does show a few Pet the Dog moments toward Maisie, he ultimately treats her more as his property rather than an individual simply because she is a clone, not to mention it is implied he primarily wants to keep her to have Wu perform rather atrocious experiments on her to improve the genetic code of any future bioweapons they may cook up. By the time Maisie has found much better parental figures in the form of Owen and Claire and refuses to come with Mills, the man loses his patience and callously calls the poor girl a "thing" before revealing her true nature rather sadistically.
  • An Arm and a Leg: As the Tyrannosaurus chomps down on him, a Carnotaurus runs up and rips one of his legs off and tries to make off with it.
  • Asshole Victim: We don't feel any sympathy for him whatsoever when he's ripped to pieces by Rexy, which is saying something, since while previous villains of the series have all been greedy assholes, none of them have (with the possible exception of Dennis Nedry) really deserved to die in such a horrible manner. This guy is a murderer, so you're actually rooting for his death by the time it comes around.
  • At Least I Admit It: He acknowledges that he's exploiting the dinosaurs, but points out that Claire did so, too. Of course, this argument falls apart because he repeatedly hides the fact he just murdered Lockwood in cold blood when he finds out about his illegal dinosaur trafficking/experimentation.
  • Bad People Abuse Animals: His Evil Plan is selling the rescued dinos to the highest bidders, many of whom are callous, uncaring criminals just like him.
  • Big Bad: Of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. He's the manipulative presence who seeks to sell the rescued dinosaurs and use that profit for nefarious genetic manipulations with military applications.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: At first he seems like a Benevolent Boss when introduced to Claire. However, as the film progresses, he is revealed to be a Corrupt Corporate Executive and a very dangerous sociopath.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Mills practically has Owen and Claire on a platter two times, yet he simply won't shut up.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He proudly admits to exploiting the dinosaurs for his own ends to Claire and Owen.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: He uses his position as Lockwood's financial director to enrich himself through illegal means. He even outright murders Lockwood when his plans are threatened.
  • Composite Character: He has a similar role to Ludlow in relation to Lockwood, but his character and finer motivations recall a much more faithful adaptation of Lewis Dodgson.
  • Cornered Rattlesnake: A true sociopath he is, but Mills seems genuinely hesitant when it comes to (direct) murder (he had planned to simply leave Owen and Claire to die on the erupting island). Nevertheless, when he was ultimately backed into a corner by Lockwood, Mills commits what was possibly the first onscreen murder of another human being. His body posture and movement was noticeably stiff and his tone was emotionless, slowly processing to himself what he was about to do.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Remember Eddie's death in Lost World when he is ripped in half by the two Tyrannosaurus? The one that is widely regarded as the most brutal death in the entire franchise? Well, it's repeated here, only the dinos involved are Rexy and a random Carnotaurus. Considering how much of an asshole Mills is, this time the sequence is cathartic.
  • Devoured by the Horde: Is ripped apart and eaten by a combination of Tyrannosaurus, Carnotaurus, and Compsognathus.
  • Dirty Coward: Two instances of this are seen. First, when Owen crashes the auction with Stiggy's help and takes down a bunch of mercenaries all by himself, Mills realizes he cannot take on Owen by himself and promptly runs away to seek help. He later comes back with two more mercs, all too willing to murder Owen and Claire, until the freed Indoraptor shows up and kills both of his men with no problem. With an Oh, Crap! look on his face, Mills simply turns around and runs as fast as he can.
  • Eaten Alive: Even after the T. rex chomps down on him and splits his body with the Carnotaurus, he's still heard screaming before being swallowed.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Mills seems to genuinely believe that Claire and Owen will stop caring about Maisie if they find out that she is a clone, so he tells them. Obviously, it doesn't work, and all it does is shock the poor girl even more.
  • Evil Counterpart: Of Peter Ludlow from the second movie. Both are ambitious young men seizing power from their older mentors and are motivated by greed, seeing the dinosaurs as the path to riches. However, whilst Ludlow was an Anti-Villain who caused most of his damage through his pride and ambition to surpass his uncle and salvage InGen leading to arrogance in regards to the forces he dealt with, the worst thing he did intentionally was usurping Hammond from his leadership. Mills is entirely selfish and out only for himself, being openly vile without any Affably Evil tendencies. Aside from dealing with criminals and arms dealing, Mills is also not above murdering anyone who gets in his way. And while Ludlow at least wanted to give the captured dinosaurs a home at his failed Jurassic Park San Diego, Mills doesn't give a crap about the dinos as long as he gets the big bucks.
  • Evil Gloating: Mills, oh Mills. When he has a captive Owen and Claire at his mercy on Lockwood's manor, rather than offing them since they're of no more use to him, he instead monologues about him admitting he will exploit the dinosaurs for monetary gain and mokingly calls Owen and Claire the "parents of the New World". He simply leaves them trapped where they are, confidently believing everyone will assume they perished at Mount Sibo's eruption. This leads to Owen using a nearby Stigimoloch to free himself and Claire and crash Mills' auction. Later on, Mills arrives with a pair of mercenaries fully willing to murder Claire and Owen, who have encountered Maisie. After Owen tells him to stop since he's gained his millions already, Mills promptly begins to rant about how late it is to turn back ever since Hammond played God all the way back to the first park and reveals Maisie is a clone. By this point, the Indoraptor has been unleashed by Wheatley and his stupidity and effordlessly takes down the two mercenaries following Mills, forcing him to run away.
  • Faux Affably Evil: At first glance Mills seems like a friendly bussinessman concerned about the endangered dinosaurs who's willing to help Lockwood in his project to rescue Isla Nublar's creatures, but he's soon revealed to be a rotten, money-obsessed sociopath who will gladly do anything in his power to increase his own fortune, even murdering people that may be an obstacle to his plans.
  • Fatal Flaw: Mills' massive lust for money ultimately bites him in the ass really hard after the film's climax. Once Maisie frees the trapped dinosaurs and they all stampede out of the manor, wrecking Mills' car and trampling his remaining mercenaries to death, the guy nonetheless has the guts to try and secure the Indominus rib sample for Wu, even as multiple predators begin ganging up on him. Unsurprisingly, Mills winds up becoming an hors d'oeuvre for Rexie.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He sometimes wears glasses, seemingly for reading, in addition to being the resident Big Bad.
  • Greed: Motivated entirely for financial gain. It's also something of a Fatal Flaw, as he very short-sightedly tries to sell the Indoraptor at the Auction of Evil, which would end InGen's monopoly on hybrid dinosaurs before they are able to mass-produce them, just because some of the bidders started trying to bid for it. At the end of the movie he still tries to go for the Indominus bone sample so that Wu can create more hybrids, despite the fact his way out is wrecked, his men have just been killed, and he's literally surrounded by man-eating dinosaurs within view. It proves to be his last mistake.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: He's ripped in two by the T. rex and Carnotaurus.
  • Hate Sink: And isn't he just. Mills is probably the most despicable character to appear in the entire franchise. He's greedy, selfish, manipulative, and if you don't count the actions of Dennis Nedrynote , he's also the only human villain in the series who has committed murder to get his own way, suffocating Lockwood with a pillow. He even tries to kill Owen and Claire with a pair of mercenaries after they manage to ruin his auction.
  • Hero Killer: He murders the fifth film's Big Good Benjamin Lockwood by suffocating him with a pillow. He later comes dangerously close to having his mercs kill Owen and Claire as payback for ruining his auction until the Indoraptor abruptly shows up and deals with the two guards in a few seconds. Mills, being too much of a Dirty Coward to take on someone like Owen, is quick to run away to save his own butt.
  • It's All About Me: Like any other "good" sociopath, Mills is loyal to no one but himself.
  • "It" Is Dehumanizing: After Maisie understandably refuses to come with Mills when the guy corners Owen and Claire with two mercs, the man gets angry and furiously calls Maisie a "thing" before revealing she is a clone.
  • Just Desserts: Rexy devours him as she escapes at the end.
  • Karmic Death: Mills is ultimately undone by the very same dinosaurs he attempted to exploit for his own selfish gain.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Out of all the other human villains in the film franchise, he is the most vile and darkest antagonist to ever graced the films, due to him being The Sociopath who happened to be the first character to deliberately commit murder, as he killed Benjamin Lockwood when he attempts to put an end to his illegal auction.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Mills may be the entire mastermind behind the illegal dinosaur auction, but he's a scrawny wimp with no combat expertise whatsoever who obviously can't stop someone like Owen on his own, and as such he entirely relies on Wheatley and the mercenaries when it comes to violent affairs. In fact, the only person he kills by himself was phisically weak, bedridden and therefore could not retaliate.
  • The Sociopath: Mills demonstrates superficial charm, but otherwise shows a complete lack of empathy for other living things, is completely obsessed with enriching himself, and doesn't hesitate to kill to achieve his goals.
  • Smug Snake: Rather than killing Owen and Claire when Wheatley brings them before him, Mills instead imprisons them in a cage, and while he does call our heroes out for their poorer choices, he nonetheless takes his sweet time rubbing his "victory" in their faces and how "powerless" they are to stop him. Naturally, not getting rid of the two major threats to his plans leads to Owen finding a way to free himself and Claire and (literally) crash Mills' auction with some nearby help.
  • Stupid Evil: Gives the go ahead to sell the Indoraptor at the Auction of Evil, despite it being an unstable prototype. Wu tells him straight up how incredibly short-sighted that is, because if one of the buyers has the Indoraptor, they'll be able to clone and mass-produce it to sell as well.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: He doesn't get along very well with his cohorts. Mills and Wu clash pretty intensely over the Indoraptor; Mills is concerned entirely with profit, whereas Wu fears the potential consequences of a faulty prototype and is enormously frustrated with Mills' greed and impatience. Mills also has trouble dealing with Wheatley, who is very eager to get his bonus payment and won't shut up about it.
  • Villain Has a Point: Mills is a greedy sociopath, but he's not wrong when he calls out Claire and Owen. Claire did arrange for the creation of the Indominius rex and was complicit in the exploitation of the Jurassic World dinosaurs. Owen, for his part, trained raptors for years but was enormously negligent in never considering what they were ultimately being trained for. He also makes it clear that, even since Hammond played God all the way back in the first park, humanity simply cannot run away from the consequences unleashed by such endeavor.
  • Vorpal Pillow: He murders Lockwood using this method.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Once Owen and Claire escape and ruin his auction with Stiggy's help, he quickly corners them accompanied by two mercenaries, all too willing to murder our two heroes.
  • Would Hurt a Child: It is implied that he plans to have Wu and his team perform experiments on Maisie to further improve the genetic technology on the dinosaurs.

    Wheatley 

Ken Wheatley

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jurassic_world_fallen_kingdom_ken_wheatley.jpg
Played By: Ted Levine

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

A seasoned mercenary who is in command of the rescue operation on Isla Nublar.


  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: His reaction to having his arm ripped off and being left to the not-so-tender mercy of the creature whose tooth he just tried to yank out? Tearfully blubbering for his life.
  • An Arm and a Leg: The Indoraptor tears his arm off and eats it in front of him. He also takes a chunk out of his leg (and several other parts of his body)—and may have bitten off /eaten his foot— while mauling him.
  • Asshole Victim: His ruthlessness and dog kicking get rewarded with Just Desserts.
  • Bad Boss: He doesn't give a crap about his men. When one is being mauled by Blue and draws his sidearm, Wheatley yells "No! Don't shoot her!", clearly caring more about capturing Blue alive and unharmed than about the merc currently getting mauled (and that's only due to the bonus he receives for capturing Blue alive). And when the guy dies as a result of his injuries, Wheatley just forgets about him.
  • Bald of Evil: The Indoraptor knocking off his hat reveals that he's balding.
  • Bloodless Carnage: Despite the Indoraptor chomping off his arm, no blood is visible.
  • Break the Haughty: Wheatley spends the film lording it over everyone and everything else, only for the Indoraptor to put an end to his Miles Gloriosus streak.
  • Bullying a Dragon: He tries to take a tooth from the Indoraptor after he thinks he has him incapacitated. Reality Ensues.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: He's disarmed (literally) by the Indoraptor, which proceeds to maul and eat him alive while he's in tears and begging for mercy. Thus far, this is the closest we get to an onscreen adaptation of Nedry's death in the Jurassic Park novel.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Wheatley is a fairly snarky fellow. When he points a gun at Claire and Owen, he snipes that they should have stayed on the island: "Better odds".
  • Dirty Coward: Subverted and combined with Miles Gloriosus. The seemingly high and mighty Wheatley tearfully begs for mercy in his final moments, but to be fair to him, he's been literally disarmed and rendered helpless. Otherwise, he doesn't hesitate to jump into action.
  • Do Not Taunt Cthulhu: Tries to yank out a tooth from the "sedated" Indoraptor for his collection and taunts that "this might hurt" while doing so. The Indoraptor taunts him right back, lifting his tail just to Troll him and smirking at the camera all the while, then proceeds to kill and eat him...not in that order, either.
  • Eaten Alive: First the Indoraptor bites his arm off and swallows it in front of him. Then, after taunting him a moment longer while he's crying for his life, he takes bite after bite out of him while he's still alive and screaming in agony.
  • Egomaniac Hunter: Although money is his guiding motivation, he still takes great pleasure from non-fatally felling dinosaurs. He rips a tooth out of each one of them as a trophy, intending to make a necklace. This need to feed his ego proves to be his undoing.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Roland Tembo from the second movie.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He presents a jovial front, but every one of his Pet the Dog moments is just a shroud for his real intentions. Perhaps the best example of his good ol' boy persona contrasted with his egomanical ruthlessness is when he orders his men to slow down as they load a Stegosaurus onto the boat. He gently calms the animal, petting it on the snout, only to gleefully rip out one of its teeth for a trophy.
  • Foil: He's basically the evil and less savvy version of Roland Tembo, the expert big game hunter hired by InGen during their Isla Sorna expedition in The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Both are a Great White Hunter (Owen even refers to him as such) who are only Punch-Clock Villain with no stake in the main driving force of the films. But while Roland is only in it for the challenge — a chance of a lifetime to bag an adult bull male T. rex — Wheatley is Only in It for the Money. Roland is the only one on Isla Sorna, save Malcom, who doesn’t have his head lodged firmly up his ass, while Wheatley dribbles the Idiot Ball. Roland is calm, focused, determined, and even has several Pet the Dog moments, while Wheatly is smug, cocky, and generally an unpleasant individual who loves to Kick the Dog every chance he gets. Where Roland is a moral man who goes out of his way to try keep everyone alive, including two people who explicitly try to get him and his men killed, Wheatley is a heartless, dog-kicking douche who tries to leave the DPG members to die on the island and doesn’t give two shits about his own men. Whereas Roland wisely extricates himself after things go to hell, Wheatley sticks around determined to nab his bonus. This choice and the final aforementioned attribute prove to be fatal to Wheatley when he arrogantly goes into the Indoraptor's cell to collect his tooth as a trophy without checking that he is fully asleep first, a mistake that no hunter should make, which ends up with him getting a Cruel and Unusual Death and sets the Indoraptor loose in the mansion.
  • Hand Cannon: He favors a pretty massive snub-nosed revolver as a sidearm.
  • Hate Sink: Wheatley is an arrogant, greedy, disrespectful and sadistic piece of scum with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Seeing him getting mauled to death by the Indoraptor is just oh so cathartic.
  • Hired Guns: One of the major mercenaries hired by Mills and Wu.
  • Hypocritical Humor: The man who cruelly pulls teeth from animals' mouths, didn't care about one of his own mercs dying to Blue, who left Owen, Claire, and Franklin behind to die, threatened to shoot Zia if she couldn't save Blue (who he only cares about because of the bonus) and calls Zia "a nasty woman" when she smarts off to him.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Just moments before leaving Isla Nublar, Wheatley stops a truck that holds a drugged Stegosaurus. At first his voice sounded concerned for the Stegosaurus and even appears to pet the beast, implying a possible Pet the Dog trait. Then he gleefully pulls out a tooth of the drugged up dinosaur and adds it to his collection of teeth, letting the truck continue on. This action shows off that he doesn’t care about the dinosaurs and only sees them as prizes.
  • Just Desserts: The Indoraptor turns him into a meal. It's hard to say he didn't have it coming, considering his ruthlessness and cruelty.
  • Karmic Death: After spending the entire film mistreating dinosaurs in every way, shape, and form, he tranquilizes a caged Indoraptor, then goes into the cage to extract a tooth for his ghoulish collection. The Indoraptor is in fact playing possum, and subsequently chomps his arm off and eats him alive while he weeps in fear.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: He is completely left in the dark about his employer's secret project and the prized prototype, hence why upon entering the mansion, he muses how come he did not foresee the Indoraptor being shipped back at the doomed island and even tried to collect his tooth which would qualify as damaging his employer's long awaited creation that he tried to keep unharmed. Also, due to being unaware of the hybrid, he is completely oblivious to how absolutely dangerous he is, which leads to his demise.
  • Nice Hat: Always seen wearing a hunting cap throughout the movie.
  • Only in It for the Money: Although he clearly enjoys his job, Wheatley's driving motivation is the money he's being paid. Mills promised him a hefty bonus for nabbing Blue alive and well, which he brings up whenever he feels such a reward might be in danger.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Wheatley isn't exactly a raving misogynist, but he is something of a chauvinist and sexist. This, of course, rubs Zia the wrong way. At one point midway through the film, he even calls her a "nasty woman", albeit out of her earshot.
  • Private Military Contractors: He's this to Mills.
  • Smug Snake: He takes great arrogant pride at being a Great White Hunter of dinosaurs.
  • Tears of Fear: Cries like a baby when the Indoraptor has him at his mercy.
  • There's No Kill Like Overkill: He finds out the hard way that the Indoraptor does not grant quick deaths to his victims.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Thinking that he had pacified the Indoraptor in his cell, Wheatley enters the hybrid's cage to extract a tooth for his collection, an already stupid thing to do so alone.
  • Undignified Death: Getting an arm chomped off and being slowly eaten by the dinosaur he tried to snatch a tooth from, while crying, is not an admirable way to go out.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He's the one responsible for the Indoraptor getting loose in the Lockwood Manor.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He is reduced to a sobbing mess pathetically begging for his life when the Indoraptor has him cornered.
  • Would Hit a Girl: The guy happily makes it clear he'll shoot Zia down if she doesn't heal Blue.

Jack

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jwfkjack.jpg
Played By: Robert Emms

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

"Seriously, guys, I'm feeling kind of exposed down here..."

A mercenary employed by Mills who's in charge of opening/closing the gates of the Jurassic World lagoon.


  • Advertised Extra: He's featured in many trailers and on one version of the poster.
  • All There in the Manual: His name "Jack" comes from pre-production sources.
  • Butt-Monkey: Pursued by Rexy, nearly left behind on Isla Nublar to be eaten by her, jerked around on the ladder by her as she tries to get him, and finally chomped by the Mosasaurus as he thinks he's safe.
  • Don't Celebrate Just Yet: He cheers happily after grabbing hold of the helicopter's rescue ladder. Then the Mosasaurus shoots out of the water and grabs him.
  • Eaten Alive: Swallowed Whole by the Mosasaurus just when it looks like he's going to make it out alive.
  • Geek Physique: He's a pretty scrawny-looking guy.
  • Headphones Equal Isolation: Well, that and a raging thunderstorm and really loud helicopter rotors. Consequently, he's unable to hear his fellow mercs in the chopper yelling for him to run until it's almost too late.
  • Hope Spot: He just manages to escape the T. rex and jump onto the helicopter ladder, only for the rex to chomp down on the ladder. His comrades almost cut him loose, but then the end of the ladder breaks off in Rexy's jaws, ensuring his escape. As the helicopter ascends, the Mosasaurus leaps out of the water and devours him.
  • Oh, Crap!: His reaction when he sees Rexy coming at him.
  • Private Military Contractors: Being a mercenary and all.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: He may be a mercenary working for the bad guys, but it's hard not to feel some sympathy for him considering the sheer hell he goes through.
  • Red Shirt: Pretty much his whole role in the movie.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Because Rexy interrupts him (and subsequently stomps on the gate controls), he never manages to finish closing the lagoon gate, allowing the Mosasaurus to leave the lagoon and escape into the open ocean.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Doesn't pay attention to his surroundings while standing out in the open on an island populated by dinosaurs at night. He even acknowledged this. Predictably, he doesn't make it very long.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: He unintentionally lets the Mosasaurus out of the lagoon after failing to close the gate.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He's one of the first people killed.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Just barely managed to escape the T. rex before getting eaten by the Mosasaurus shortly afterwards.

Played By: Kevin Layne

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

"There she is. The Indominus rex."

A mercenary employed by Mills who pilots a mini submarine into Jurassic World's lagoon.


  • Admiring the Abomination: He seems pretty impressed by the sight of the I. rex skeleton.
  • Black Dude Dies First: Along with his co-pilot, he's one of the first people killed.
  • Eaten Alive: Presumably Swallowed Whole, along with their sub, by the Mosasaurus
  • Enemy Rising Behind: When the Mosasaurus creeps up behind the sub.
  • Killed Offscreen: We never actually see him and his friend get killed; we just see the Mosasaurus sneaking up behind them with her jaws open, then we cut to the surface of the water, where we see the sub's floodlights go out suddenly.
  • No Name Given: Neither he nor the other man in the sub with him are given actual names. They're just "Sub Pilot" and "Tech Operator," respectively.
  • Private Military Contractors: Unless he and his co-pilot were just hired for their sub, they both fall under this.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Although a glorified Red Shirt, he's the one responsible for retrieving the I. rex bone, allowing Wu to create the Indoraptor.
  • Tempting Fate: He stubbornly assured his co-pilot that the Mosasaurus is dead by now. Less than three minutes later, he’s proven dead wrong.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He isn't in the movie very long before getting chomped by the Mosasaurus.

Played By: Toby Jones

Appearances: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

An auctioneer host at Lockwood Estate who sells the Isla Nublar dinosaurs for profit.


  • Asshole Victim: A heartless and greedy dinosaur auctioneer who's the second person to be killed by the Indoraptor. Nobody will regret him.
  • Auction of Evil: He arranges and presides over an auction of dinosaurs. The dinosaurs are mistreated and callously treated as objects, some of the bidders are rich criminals and the auction is organized by a Corrupt Corporate Executive who wants to fund research on dinosaur DNA to create living weapons for war.
  • Blonde Guys Are Evil: In addition to being a greedy criminal, he has very floppy blonde hair.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When the dinosaurs are a day late, he snarks to Mills, "Am I supposed to sell these dinosaurs?", indicating the sculptures in Lockwood's house.
  • Dirty Coward: Downplayed. He has no problem pulling a woman out of her hiding place, but to be fair, the open elevator was hardly a good place to hide from the Indoraptor and he was trying to access the button panel to close it.
  • Don't Celebrate Just Yet: He and several people get into an elevator and the doors shut just before the Indoraptor would've gotten in. Everyone breathes a sigh of relief and laughs. Then the doors open again, and the Indoraptor lunges in and slaughters them all.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's a pleasant and mildly hammy auctioneer who politely greets his guests, but he's just being a good salesman. In reality, he's a smug, disdainful, and impatient man.
  • Greed: The Indoraptor is just a prototype and initially not for sale, but it proves so impressive that when the guests start bidding, he agrees to sell (with Mills' permission and despite Wu's protests).
  • Just Desserts: The Indoraptor turns on him after Wheatley.
  • Karmic Death: Eversoll is killed by one of the creatures he was illegally selling to dangerous criminals.
  • Oh, Crap!: He breathes a sigh of relief when he manages to outwit the Indoraptor and secure himself inside an elevator, only for the Indoraptor to accidentally disable the locks with a swipe of his tail. His expression when the doors open is one of mute, unmoving horror.

    Indoraptor 

Indoraptor

Diet: Carnivore

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

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."

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 being released by Wheatley, he effortlessly takes down two mercenaries who were all too willing to shoot down 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 find a way to take down the Indoraptor.
  • 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.
  • Ambiguously Human: Similar to the Indominus rex, he has hands with opposable thumbs and is dangerously intelligent but he also has the ability to smile, something no dinosaur should be capable of. After his targeting instincts are used against him to try and make him fall through the glass roof above the exhibits, he clambers back up, looks at Owen and pointedly shakes his head, clearly communicating, "Oh no, you're getting me that easily."
  • 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 fails, but Blue manages to finish the job.
  • Blood Knight: Much like his predecessor, the Indoraptor is both extremely aggressive and highly intelligent.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: Interestingly, while his rampage is the focus of the third act, the Indoraptor isn't really the main antagonist of the story. He 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 saves Owen, Claire, and Maisie (albeit by accident) when he attacks Mills' men. Mills is the true Big Bad of the film.
  • Character Tic: Similiar 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 so as 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 Evil 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 playfulness in 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 Evil 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.
  • Eat the Rich: Literally. He devours Eversol and three wealthy participants (who are all millionaires) at the dinosaur auction.
  • 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. The Indoraptor has a sense of humor.
  • Evil Counterpart: The Indoraptor acts as one to Blue, who faces off against him.
  • Evil Is Bigger: While much smaller than his predecessor, he is still significantly larger than Blue.
  • Feathered Fiend: The same case with the Indominus; his quills might be form of protofeathers.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Strangely, yes. 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 Indo gently nuzzles the man's face with his own snout as Wheatley sobs in terror right before graphically 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 behaviour. While he can be trained to follow visual and auditory stimulous, his ridiculously high aggression makes him impossible to control. Wu intends to use Blue with her far more amenable personality as a template for the next generation of Indoraptor.
  • Foreshadowing: In Jurassic World, Hoskins remarks that the Indominus was just the first phase of the project, and that phase 2 would be to shrink it down a third of the size.
  • Freudian Excuse: Is heavily implied to have been abused and mistreated by the guards shown by concept art and briefly shown in the film when he's being tased and shocked. Not to mention it's implied he's ill and was made to kill, so he can't really help what he does.
  • Horror Hunger: Indoraptor's reasons to constantly hunting for new prey are partly out of hunger and partly because because he was made to do so but also out of sadisim. Combined with the possibility he's suffering some form of hyperthyroidism or metabolic condition, Indoraptor is a unique example to 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 during his escape.
  • 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 a Triceratops 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 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 offnote .
  • Innate Night Vision: 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.note 
  • 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 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.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Much like the Indominus rex, but designed specifically to hunt down and kill targets in combat situations. The Indoraptor boasts excellent agility, 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 the scene in the bedroom where he extends his arm and claws towards Maisie.
  • Mix-and-Match Critter: Like the Indominus rex, the Indoraptor has crocodilian fangs, osteoderms and quills, and suspiciously human-like arms with opposable thumbs on his hands. 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.
  • 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.
    • Also a case of Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!, since our unarmed heroes are at least better equipped to deal with the Indoraptor by himself rather than having to deal with a few squads of professional mercs 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.
  • Raptor Attack: His dromeosaurid genetic contributions are more apparent than the Indominus's, as he possesses raptorial claws on his feet.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Has some distinctly snake-like elements of 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.
  • 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 perched atop a gothic rooftop.
  • Slasher Smile: He gives one while distracting Wheatley with his tail before going for the kill.
  • 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.
  • Spear Counterpart: While the Indominus rex was explicitly stated to be female, the Indoraptor is her male successor.
  • 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.
  • Spikes of Villainy: As with his predecessor, his neck and back are armored by quills and pointy osteoderms.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: Up to Eleven. 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.
  • 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.
  • Tragic Villain: Was implied to have been heavily abused by the guards as shown concept art images (not to mention we briefly see him being tased and shocked in the auction scene) and was said to have been suffering from an illness. Not to mention he was created to kill so he couldn't help it when it came down to killing people.
  • Troll: When Wheatley tranquilises 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.
    • During Stiggy's headbutting rampage, you can see Indoraptor in the background in a few shots, and he's clearly enjoying the show, even growling and screeching in a way similar to laughter at the expense of the humans.
  • 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.
  • Twitchy Eye: Full body example, borders on Marionette Motion, it is so sickly and degenerated that it spasms almost constantly if you look closely.
  • 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.

    Stiggy 

Stiggy

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

A young Stygimoloch that was rescued from Isla Nublar before the eruption.


  • Artistic License – Paleontology: Debatable example. As far as dinosaurs in the series go, Stiggy is fairly accurate to a real Stygimoloch. However, it's possible that Stygimoloch was a juvenile form of Pachycephalosaurus and not a unique genus.
  • Berserk Button: Whistling.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Relatively docile and cute unless threatened and coaxed into ramming into something.
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: Although probably unintentional, Stiggy's the one to rough up Mills' entire Auction of Evil all on its own once Owen goads it into ramming a way out of the enclosure.
  • Herbivores Are Friendly: If a bit ram-happy. Described as one of the heroic dinosaurs and Owen uses it to free himself by having Stiggy ram down a cage door.
  • Ironic Name: Its genus name means "Styx Demon" due to its horns, but Stiggy is relatively docile and helps the heroes.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: The genus Stygimoloch is obscure even compared to the likes of Pachycephalosaurus.
  • Use Your Head: Naturally as a member of the Pachycephalosaur family, Stiggy can use the dome on its head as a Battering Ram.

    Mosasaurus 

In General

    Carnotaurus 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jurassic_world_carnotaurus_updated_by_sonichedgehog2_dc377dl.png

An abelisaur known for its large brow horns and nigh-vestigial limbs.


  • Adaptational Wimp: In The Lost World (1995), the Carnotaurus were regarded as The Dreaded and were very skilled hunters thanks to their ability to camouflage, to the point even the Tyrannosaurus and Velociraptors would steer clear of their path. Here, not only does it fail to get a single kill, it's also on the receiving end of one of the biggest Curb Stomp Battles in Jurassic Park history. That and it doesn't possess the camouflaging abilities the book counterparts have.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: On the receiving end of this, at the jaws of the Tyrannosaurus.
  • Animals Not to Scale: Slightly bigger and taller than the real life animal, which is notable when you compare them in scenes next to Rexy, who is large even for a Tyrannosaurus.
  • Butt-Monkey: Quite possibly suffers the most ass-kicking in a single Jurassic movie. Fails to kill a Sinoceratops, gets attacked by the T. rex, and later doesn't even get to eat the main villain; the kill is abruptly taken by the T. rex, with the Carnotaurus only getting a leg. And then Rexy smacks that out of its mouth and drives it offscreen. Carnotaurus can't catch a damn break.
  • Canon Immigrant: Carnotaurus was featured in the novel version of The Lost World (1995), making this the genus's second appearance in any official Jurassic Park canon. Granted, this version doesn't appear to have the chameleon-like camouflaging ability of the novel counterpart.
  • Covered with Scars: One of the Carnotaurus in Lockwood has a heavily scarred face and a broken left horn.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Gets taken down with minimal effort by Rexy.
  • Neck Snap: The Carnotaurus Rexy takes down is killed from a broken neck when, as she's retreating from the eruption, she steps on its neck. You can see its tail flailing for a moment before going limp.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Carnotarus wasn't included on the list of dinosaurs featured in the park, although it is listed as one of Indominus's DNA contributors, so they may have been kept separate.
  • Shown Their Work: Unlike Disney's version, this one is sized and proportioned more like the real animal, albeit a bit oversized. As far as Jurassic Park dinos go, it's relatively accurate aside from the wrongly-pointing wrists, clawed hands, and slightly misshapen skull.
  • Skewed Priorities: During the island's demise, one of them is more concerned with finding a meal than reaching safety from the volcanic eruption.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: Albeit a recent addition, having been made stock by Dinosaur.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: Despite the threat of imminent death by volcano, the Carnotaurus chooses to waste time fighting a Sinoceratops and then trying to make an easy meal of some humans, something which ultimately nets its defeat by Rexy the Tyrannosaurus.

    Baryonyx 

Baryonyx

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jurassic_world_fallen_kingdom_baryonyx_by_sonichedgehog2_dc9dfqf_5.png

A spinosaur known for the enlarged claw on its finger.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: The official website listed its aggression index as "medium", yet the one in the movie is ridiculously vicious, chasing Claire and Franklin in a building and not giving up even after getting lava dripped on its face. Possibly justified since it could be starving, which turned it more vicious.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: The one that goes after Claire and Franklin ends up getting trapped in a room that is rapidly filling with lava. Given that it was probably starving and panicked in the first place, it's hard not to feel sorry for this Baryonyx.
  • Art Evolution: The Baryonyx in the movie looks radically different from its appearance in the Jurassic World website, which was much more colourful and accurate-looking in comparison.
  • Artistic License – Paleontology: The skull is broader, it's missing the crest between the eyes (although there is a small bump where the crest should be), the arms and neck are also shorter, and the teeth are wrong. Plus, it is horribly shrink-wrapped even for a Jurassic Park dino, although this could be justified in that it was starving. Still, it looks more like a real Baryonyx than Rudy or the ones from The Land Before Time XIII: The Wisdom of Friends.
  • Dinosaurs Are Dragons: Invokes a bit of this trope, whether or not intentionally. It's slightly draconic-looking, especially when compared to the real thing, and its introduction has it surrounded by lava.
  • Made of Iron: One sticks its head THROUGH MAGMA (more than once) to snap at some humans and is totally unscathed.
  • Mama Bear: In the Jurassic World: Blue VR prequel, a mother Baryonyx defends her nest from both Blue and Rexy, even trying to charge the larger predator. It goes about as well as you'd expect.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: Not exactly a crocodile, but has a head like one. As well as crocodilian-like dorsal armor.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: This is probably the second time a Baryonyx has appeared in a feature-film. This first was in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: Baryonyx is the second best-known spinosaurid after Spinosaurus. Although it is a Seldom-Seen Species in non-educational works.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: One decides to attack some humans, despite being in a building that's caught on fire. Although seeing as it's more shrink-wrapped than other Jurassic Park dinosaurs, it could be starving to death.

    Allosaurus 

Allosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/allosaurus_jwfk.png
A medium-sized carnivorous dinosaur with brow horns and three-fingered hands.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Okay, maybe not a villain but it gets pitiful when one of them gets hit by a falling volcanic rock.
  • Animals Not to Scale: The adult in Jurassic World: Battle at Big Rock is positively enormous, in some shots appearing even larger than the Indominus. The real animal probably capped out at a bit over 30 feet long, a good deal smaller than Tyrannosaurus, and most specimens were much smaller.
  • Ascended Extra: Is the main antagonist of Jurassic World: Battle at Big Rock.
  • Canon Immigrant: Prior to the film, Allosaurus's only appearances in the franchise were the video games and toy lines.
  • Funny Background Event: In the trailers, one angrily lunges at a Gallimimus for bumping into it during the stampede. In the actual film, however, this gets changed into the Allosaurus attempting to eat the Gallimimus, which doesn't do anything to provoke it.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: The one that shows up in Battle at Big Rock wisely decides to let the baby Nasutoceratops go free after both of its parents show up. It also decides to retreat after receiving two crossbow arrows to the face.
  • Out of Focus: Doesn't really get to do much in the movie compared to its fellow theropods. While the other carnivores are each given at least one scene where they attack the humans, the Allosaurus is only really remembered for getting taken out by a volcanic rock and then being the second dinosaur sold in the auction. It doesn't even get a promotional render unlike the other new dinosaurs.
  • Recurring Extra: The Allosaurus never gets a major scene of its own, but is featured quite noticeably during the stampede scenes. A few can be seen fleeing as Mount Sibo erupts and after Maisie sets all the dinos free.
  • Remember the New Guy?: It wasn't included on the list of dinosaurs featured in the park. Granted, Allosaurus do show up on the Holoscope.
  • Shown Their Work: In Battle at Big Rock, the adult Allosaurus is shown to have non-pronated wrists, a first for the franchise.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: The iconic Jurassic theropod. Surprisingly, it took until now for it to be included in a Jurassic Park movie.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: In a first for the franchise, Averted - during the events of Battle at Big Rock, it initially focuses on attacking the baby Nasutoceratops, but backs off after the baby's father shows up. And while it does try to eat the humans, it runs off after being hit with a piece of metal, hosed down with a fire extinguisher, and taking two crossbow bolts to the face.

    Brachiosaurus 

Brachiosaurus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jurassic_world_brachiosaurus_updated_by_sonichedgehog2_dc55jvt.png

Another long-necked herbivorous dinosaur distinguished by its domed skull and longer forelimbs.


    Sinoceratops 

Sinoceratops

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jurassic_world_sinoceratops_by_sonichedgehog2_dc9dg8x.png

A large single-horned ceratopsid discovered in China.


  • Artistic License – Paleontology: It is portrayed having a hole in the fenestrae of its frill. It would have been even more inaccurate if it had been Pachyrhinosaurus as originally planned, as Pachyrhinosaurus is famous for not having horns on its head.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: The same case as its North American cousin, Triceratops. Promotional material has it posing with Claire in several photos and it's introduced in the film coming across an inert Owen and gently licking his face. When next we get to see another of its species, however, it's fighting aCarnotaurus, showing it's not entirely a friendly herbivore when provoked.
  • Horn Attack: In contrast to Triceratops, it has only one horn on its nose. Not that it wouldn't deliver just as much damage.
  • Remember the New Guy?: It wasn't mentioned at all on the list of dinosaurs displayed at Jurassic World.
  • Seldom-Seen Species: Quite possibly the most obscure genus ever to be chosen for the films, especially considering the fact that it was only described and named in 2010.
