    Potholing "T. rex" - 40% 

    Work features a T. Rex - 40% 
  • Characters.Transformers Devastation: His alternate mode.
  • Characters.City Of Lost Characters: Natch
  • Characters.ARK Survival Evolved: Played with. Despite everyone calling it a "Rex", the dossier notes its actually a species called Tyrannosaurus dominum rather than Tyrannosaurus rex.
  • Animation.Happy Heroes: Nearly every dinosaur that lives on planet Xing Xing resembles a T-rex.
  • Manga.Ninja Hattori: One episode features a big model of a T-rex at a museum. Kagechiyo moves it around to scare Kenichi while he is taking a photo of his friends and teacher, who are standing in front of the model.
  • Manga.Doraemon: Noby encounters one in Noby's Dinosaur.
  • Literature.Three D Thrillers: The T. Rex book likely exists because of this Trope.
  • Literature.Dinotopia: They guard ancient temples in the Rainy Basin and must be bought off with smoked fish or eels to ensure safe passage. Journey to Chandara also features another variant that feeds only on carrion.
  • Literature.Carnosaur: Downplayed. The only ones featured are a pair of hatchlings which only appear in the end devouring Lady Jane. The very similar, but still distinct Tarbosaurus instead takes its place as the main threat. In-universe however, characters repeatedly mistake the Tarbosaurus for its North American cousin.
  • Film.The Valley Of Gwangi: Though billed as an Allosaurus, Gwangi doesn't really look like one.
  • Film.The Last Dinosaur: Paleontologists have called them the crown of creation... the king of the super tyrant lizards!
  • Film.T Rex Back To The Cretaceous:  Once again, the star of the show in the Cretaceous. With constant references to how fascinating Donald, Ally and Elizabeth find this species.
  • Film.Iron Sky The Coming Race: Hitler rides one that he calls Blondie.
  • Film.Age Of Dinosaurs: Downplayed. Tyrannosaurus does appear, but has a rather minimal role at the dino stampede in the climax. The main threat comes from an oversized Ceratosaurus and a bunch of raptor-esque Carnotaurus.
  • Fanfic.The Seven Hunters: Chomper, his family, and Red Claw all make appearances in the story.
  • Fanfic.The Seven Hunters: Rexy the T-rex from the movies is the first dinosaur that The Team captures, and becomes a permanent resident at the 'San Huelva Zoo'.
  • Characters.Yu Gi Oh Card Game J To L: Dogoran, as a Not Zilla, has some T. rex-like features, most notably with its facial structure, which fits with its Dinosaur typing.
  • WesternAnimation.The Sponge Bob Movie Sponge Out Of Water: Or rather Squidasaurus Rex, a T. rex-like creature with Squidward's head.
  • WesternAnimation.Planet Sketch: One stars in the "Dr. Inosaur" segments, in which he always attempts to eat his patients and fails.
  • WesternAnimation.Dino Babies: One episode has the kids taking in a baby T. rex.
  • VideoGame.Holy Beast Online: As a pet.
  • Series.Clash Of The Dinosaurs:  A dinosaur documentary wouldn't be complete without it. He's described as the biggest meat-eating dinosaur ever, despite Spinosaurus and Giganotosaurus were already known to be bigger at the time of the program.
  • Recap.Doctor Who S 33 E 2 Dinosaurs On A Spaceship: The only one shown is a sleeping baby, and it doesn't have much impact.
  • Characters.Jurassic Park Literature: The name says it all.
