PnFPrimeval is a series of stories and artwork on DeviantArt by CK Dinomite. The series chronicles the adventures of Phineas and the gang (who are teenagers) as they encounter the anomalies and the creatures that come through them. It isn't very similar to the original Primeval, as it is Lighter and Fluffier and features teenage main characters. One could argue it is more similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer in those respects. It is currently in its fourth series.

Tropes:

  • Ax-Crazy: From what we've seen of them so far, Professor Mylar's Mix-and-Match Critters.
  • Always Chaotic Evil: From what we've seen of them so far, Professor Mylar's Mix-and-Match Critters.
  • Big Bad: Professor Mylar is this in seasons 3 and 4.
  • The Cheerleader: The Fireside Girls have become cheerleaders, but they lack the bitchy stereotypes normally associated with such characters.
  • Expy: Dr. Hunt is this to Buffy's Giles.
  • Evil Brit: Averted with Dr. Hunt, who is British and is a heroic Mentor to the protagonists. Played straight with Professor Mylar.
  • Good Animals, Evil Animals: Played straight as an arrow with the creatures. Carnivores are mindless, slavering monsters and Mylar's creations are outright evil. Herbivores on the other hand get two portrayals: if they are small and cute, they are friendly towards the protagonists (and are often anthropomorphized to a ridiculous degree) and if they are large and badass-looking, they will provide the occasional Big Damn Heroes moment.

  • Lighter and Fluffier: In comparison to the original Primeval.
  • Jerk Jock: Antonio is the personification of this trope.
  • Predators Are Mean: If a carnivorous creature appears, it is portrayed as either a mindless, slavering monster or an Ax-Crazy killer chasing the cute little herbivore around for no reason.
  • Prehistoric Monster: One of the common criticisms of the series is that the carnivorous animals are often portrayed as being these, rather than the more nuanced portrayal they had in the original Primeval.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: The Big Bad Professor Mylar specialises in creating these.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: If a carnivorous dinosaur or reptile appears, it is generally portrayed as the antagonist of the episode.
  • Whole Plot Reference: Savage Serpent is a WPR to the Lost Tapes episode Megaconda. The villain, Tom Kobar, even has a similar Masquerade (a textile worker) and a similar name to the villain of that episode, Ken Tobar.
