Top Ten Best Dinosaurs


The Top Ten

1 Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur. It also had a tremendous bite force, the strongest of any Dinosaur and living terrestrial animal. Its bite force reached up to 12,800 pounds (roughly more.

Why is that stick-nose overrated bastard number one? Tyrannosaurus is not only stronger than it, he is also hunter while Spinosaurus eats fish. A lot of scientists now agree with the fact that T-Rex was a hunter. Come on people, get T-Rex back at number one!

Tyrannosaurs Rex is the most BADASS dinosaur of them all!

My favorite dino is the T-Rex because it is the king of the dinosaurs!

I believe with all the facts of science that the Tyrannosaurus Rex is what most people think of when someone says ultimate predator. The Tyrannosaurus has all the reasons for it to be a predator. First, the size infers that it is a hunter. Why would it need its huge size to be a scavenger? To scare off other scavengers? I think not. Why? Because it is the only meat eater this big to be able to fight the prey that is living in the same region. Why would Triceratops need its horns? Why did Ankylosaurus need its tail club? Because another mystery super predator that hasn't been discovered yet might be there? Probably not. Why? Because first, a Tyrannosaur's jaws aren't designed that way. Also, there is evidence of a Tyrannosaurus hunting a Triceratops. All of that determines the Rex the staple of the dinosaurs, and the best, in my opinion. Happy Reading!

2 Spinosaurus Spinosaurus Spinosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in what now is North Africa, during the lower Albian to lower Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous period, about 112 to 97 million years ago.

The funny thing about this list is that almost all of the people who vote tyrannosaurus rex are uneducated about it. Tyrannosaurus Rex has extremely stubby arms, unlike the fairly long ones of the spinosaurus. An even more interesting fact about the spinosaurus is that if its bones weren't destroyed in a museum during a ww2 bombing, it would be the most popular.

Master of Destruction

The death killer

3 Velociraptor Velociraptor Velociraptor is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period.

People say the velociraptor could not have been as smart as a primate, but we still don't know about how these reptiles functioned all those millions of years ago, so they may have been a lot smarter than we give them credit for. As far as I am concerned, raptors are like wolves, and wolves are cool, so rapters are also cool... mike drop.

Raptors are mine favorite!

When people say velociraptor I assume they mean Utahraptor

Raptors are epic

4 Triceratops Triceratops Triceratops is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that first appeared during the late Maastrichtian stage of the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America.

What a very cool dinosaur!

The triceritops is in actual fact, my spirit animal

Lit dinosaur

A beast, Id compare a triceratops to the true geordie!

6 Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived in North America during the Late Jurassic, about 154–153 million years ago.

8 Carcharodontosaurus Carcharodontosaurus Carcharodontosaurus is a genus of carnivorous carcharodontosaurid dinosaurs that existed between 100 and 94 million years ago, during the Cenomanian stages of the mid-Cretaceous Period.

Wow! Killer =dead meat

This dudes just a fake version of a T-Rex don't @ me

9 Ankylosaurus Ankylosaurus Ankylosaurus is a genus of armored dinosaur. Fossils of Ankylosaurus have been found in geological formations dating to the very end of the Cretaceous Period, between about 68–66 million years ago, in western North America, making it among the last of the non-avian dinosaurs.

The Ankylosaurus is the mullet of dinosaurs. It's cute and cuddly in the front but a mean, wrecking ball-swinging machine in the back.

Best dinosaurs ever

They are tank

I saw a trex eating one of these and I thought another one bites the dust
also I commented on this yesterday saying the best dinosaurs ever

10 Allosaurus Allosaurus Allosaurus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur that lived 155 to 150 million years ago during the late Jurassic period.

Thank you, Allosaurus. Very cool!

Hmm... Still it's alright. - X_the_Unown

This is a

The apex threat of the Jurassic and a noble combatant for most dangerous big carnivorous dinosaurs fighting food competition like torvosaurus and ceratosaurus and prey like the stegosaurus. It also is incredibly fast! Compared to us at least. Ok bye

13 Utahraptor Utahraptor Utahraptor is a genus of theropod dinosaurs. It contains a single species, Utahraptor ostrommaysorum, which is the largest known member of the family Dromaeosauridae.

It's better than you

He is swift and adgile and is the perfect killer.

Speedy, smart and large, nature designed the perfect creature

The most deadliest design ever made by mother nature... I would like to face a big carnivore like tyrannosaurus or giganotosaurus any day before facing this animal... Teeth+Arm+Foot Claw+ Speed+Brain+Feathers+Size... Ultimate combination...

14 Carnotaurus Carnotaurus Carnotaurus, meaning "Meat eating Bull" in Ancient Greek, is a genus of abelisauridae theropod dinosaur that lived in what is now South America about 70 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period.

My favourite large theropod. I first saw them in the the Disney movie Dinosaur. They have a very short face and very small arms.

Toast! Gaming beaver made him my absolute favorite. Decorator is close though.

Come on we need this dino to be higher

Best dinosaur ever since I first saw it in the Dinosaur animated film from 2000. Imagine a T-Rex with a rounded skull, bull horns over its eyes, spikes, scutes or osteoderms and even tinier arms!

15 Troodon Troodon Troodon is a dubious genus of relatively small, bird-like dinosaurs known definitively from the Campanian age of the Cretaceous period. It includes at least one species, Troodon formosus, known from Montana.


Huh... It's like the Wagtail of dino world. And please don't tell me you lot don't like Wagtails! Troodons are the Wagtails of the dino world! - X_the_Unown

Troodon is beautiful... :

Troodon is no longer really a valid species. The many species placed under the troodon umbrella are now their own. Examples include latenivenatrix, albertavenator, etc.

17 Monolophosaurus

This is one of the most lit things ever on Earth. It looks kind of like a raptor.

It ate almost anything. It was super strong and super fast.

Mind set of a physco, Speed and body of a raptor, and epic teeth like a T-rex, this deserves more love. - DerpaHerpaMerpa

An underrated awesome dinosaur. - SharkLover12

18 Pterodactyl Pterodactyl

Pterodactyls are actually flying reptiles, not dinosaurs. No dinosaurs could fly.

It's classified as a dinosaur bit part of the bird family in a prehistoric way.

It has gone from 29 to 20

Pterodactyl is NOT a dinosaur!

He is very bold and very attractive

Very bad dinosaur not a dinosaur

That thing on his head is amazing

20 Lambeosaurus Lambeosaurus
21 Deinonychus Deinonychus

Barely any people know jurassic park or world velociraptors are basically deinonychus. Velociraptor was tiny

I own one of these in my D&D campaign! - KeyboardHero

My favorite

If your favorite dinosaur is the Velociraptor from Jurassic Park, then vote for Deinonychus! Real raptors were small, feathered, probably hunted alone, and were not intelligent. They appear that way in the books and movies due to a misclassification of the Deinonychus as a subspecies of Velociraptor. The Deinonychus is what you saw in Jurassic Park. They still weren't the smartest dinosaurs (that's the Troodon), but they were smart enough to hunt together.

22 Oviraptor Oviraptor Oviraptor is a genus of small Mongolian theropod dinosaurs, first discovered by technician George Olsen in an expedition led by Roy Chapman Andrews, and first described by Henry Fairfield Osborn, in 1924.

Babies are cute but adults would shriek at you so you would be irritated.

It is cute. One of the cutest dinosaurs I've ever seen.

Also one of the most dangerous raptors

26 Brontosaurus / Apatosaurus

Brontosaurus was in everything. He was the most badass dinosaur - Bertie11

The Land Before Time- Littlefoot

I liked these dinos but recently in 2015, brontosaurus was now officially made valid again thanks to an extensive research in April 2015 after the people who did the research found differences between it and apatosaurus in the original bones. But despite the reseach and the differences found in the bones which is the neck, shoulder blade and of course the ankles, some people doesn't agree with the research and still decided to keep brontosaurus as a synonym of apatosaurus.

These guys were cool, but it's just Apatosaurus, because the bones of "brontosaurus" were proven to be the bones of Apatosaurus, which had been named and discovered first.

27 Diplodocus Diplodocus Diplodocus is a genus of diplodocid sauropod dinosaurs whose fossils were first discovered in 1877 by S. W. Williston.

When I was a young boy I mentioned this dinosaur to my friends grandfather, who told me I had mispronounced its name. I proved him wrong and felt proud of myself. That incident, long ago, has endeared me to the creature.

This dinosaur reminds me of Little Foot from The Land before Time franchise.

This is the coolest thing I have ever saw in my life

Became a fan of this dinosaur because of Walking with Dinosaurs. - DinoLover4242

28 Therizinosaurus Therizinosaurus

Well duh. They are my favorite dinosaur! Those huge claws weren't used for nothing, they were used to cut plants for food, and also to kill others. They weren't carnivores, but they were just as vicious. - DerpaHerpaMerpa

This is my favorite dinosaur. I don't care if it isn't a carnivore, this thing is awesome! It's armed with claws that can easily rip other dinosaurs open, and it is much bigger than your fan favorite Tyrannosaurus rex. So yeah, that's why I love this thing.

Look at those claws man I swipe and your mince meat

The Therizinosaurus's amazing claws and bone structure are enough to move this guy up on the list!

29 Hypacrosaurus Hypacrosaurus

Really cool

30 Dakotaraptor Dakotaraptor Dakotaraptor is a genus of large carnivorous theropod dromaeosaurid dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of North America.

33 Sigilmassasaurus
34 Baryonyx Baryonyx Baryonyx is a genus of theropod dinosaur which lived in the Barremian stage of the early Cretaceous Period, about 130–125 million years ago.

Doesn't this thing eat fish, like the Spinosaurus?

Best dino ever

The Baryonyx is sooo COOL! He has a 8in claw to catch fish

The baryonyx is a cousin of the well known spinosaurus. But the bad news is spinosaurus is getting more and more overrated. Soon it will probably be more overrated than the tyranosarus rex.

35 Suchomimus Suchomimus Suchomimus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur with a crocodile-like skull that lived between 125–112 million years ago, during the Aptian to early Albian stage of the Cretaceous period in Niger, Africa.

Holy hell. Heres my main favorite dino! They are so badass, I actually feel as of they could kill a Indoraptor. - DerpaHerpaMerpa

The formidable suchomimus would be a great opponent to the "mighty" tyrannosaurus. It likes to hunt like a crocodile hence it's name, "crocodile mimic". I love this dinosaur, It should be on number one...KING SUCHOMIMUS!

My favorite Dino. Look at it. Nothing will make me change my mind suchomimus u beautiful beast

It's not my favorite, but I like suchomimus. I know lots about dinosaurs, but this is one of the only Dino's I only know one or 2 things about. I know it's part of the spino family.

36 Tarbosaurus Tarbosaurus Tarbosaurus is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that flourished in Asia about 70 million years ago, at the end of the Late Cretaceous Period.

I like this because when I saw spekales the tarbosaurus

A cousin of the well known tyrannosaurus rex.

2nd best tyrannosaur after Tyrannosaurus Rex

Tarbosaurus was the king of Asia

37 Pachycephalosaurus Pachycephalosaurus

Favorite is tough and cute

Great dino, should be in too ten.

They couldn't bang their skulls together, because they had nothing to release the pressure, so that myth is busted.

Anything that would release the pressure would be decayed over time it probably had a spongy like tissue around its brain to protect it from hard blows much like a woodpecker has this tissue to prevent injury from pecking wood. Also why else would they have such a thick skull? - Katekat123

Should be in top 10 from there heads and shear strength

39 Plesiosaurs Plesiosaurs

There is a group of these things thriving in Loch Ness.

This creature lived life similarly to the whales of today. Such a unique animal.

This is not a dinosaur, since dinosaurs never ruled the seas, even though Plesiosaurs were cool looking just like dinosaurs. - DinoLover4242

40 Saurophaganax

Large dinosaur, the top dominator of the Allosaurus and Torosaurus time and place

Because you s battles sauraphaganax beats giganotasaura

41 Argentinosaurus Argentinosaurus Argentinosaurus is a genus of titanosaur sauropod dinosaur first discovered by Guillermo Heredia in Argentina. The generic name refers to the country in which it was discovered.

Named after the country itself.

They could cause an earthquake with their weights

The biggest Dinosaur ever it's a vegetarian and its neck was very long and it is bigger than blue whales! Today blue whale is the biggest animals ever but many years ago argentinosaurus was the biggest animal ever

This dinosaur weighed 200,000 thousand pounds it was one fat dinosaur but, it's still my favourite dino9 of all time.

42 Gigantoraptor

My least favorite dinosaur of all time. It doesn't feel like a dinosaur and nothing truly stands out about it to me.

This dinosaur could scare any member of the tyrannosaur family as this dinosaur would poke its beak and shriek loudly as if a car skid sound would sound is it happened in your ear

Giganotoraptor is bigger than Utahraptor Its Like. a Theriznosaurus

Giganotoraptor wasn't actully a raptor

43 Styracosaurus Styracosaurus Styracosaurus was a genus of herbivorous ceratopsian dinosaur from the Cretaceous Period, about 75.5 to 75 million years ago.

Eema from the 2000 movie Dinosaur!

This dino is so cool! it's like a triceritops but better

It's an Angel!

It is so op no words it is just AWESOME
By the way is you didn't know here is some info
Late Cretaceous ceratopsian name means
Spiked lizard

44 Archeopteryx Archeopteryx

Archaeopteryx are related to aves, there fore my favourite dinosaur is the archaeopteryx next to all the bird like dinosaurs and the Utah raptor


45 Iguanodon Iguanodon Iguanodon is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur that existed roughly halfway between the first of the swift bipedal hypsilophodontids of the mid-Jurassic and the duck-billed dinosaurs of the late Cretaceous.

These guys are awesome and underrated. They need more recognition.

I had superior fighting methods. These methods are largely overlooked.

Igadon is goat. if u don't like him then say it to my face,

It’s the smartest for it’s size to brain matter proportion is incredibly high and is the most interesting

47 Gigantosaurus

Guys it is not giganotosaurus this is actually gigantosaurus a large saurapod

This dinosaur is already on the list

We saw him in top ten

Some would say the T-Rex is, despite being smaller, stronger then this giant beast but no, it is in fact stronger and bigger then the T-Rex, on a list (and when I say this I mean accurate list, not some fake one made my fans) the top 3 would be 1. The Titanosaur despite being a herbivore it's actually one of the strongest and biggest dinosaur in history 2. Is the dreaded Gigantosaurus, it is confused to be weaker then the Rex but is infact much stronger, on a 1v1 fight the Giga is a sure fire winner 3. The T-Rex often confused with being stronger then the Giga (number 2) sure it's strong but there's some Dino's even this bad boy can't take on 4. would be the Spino, it is just as ferocious as the Rex but Isn't as powerful despite getting off topic I'm not sure what number 5 is, I know the Allosaurus is strong but the Thylacoleo is stronger and isn't in the top 5 now anyone who went to 8th grade would know the Giga is stronger then the Rex

48 Sauroposeidon Sauroposeidon

Very tall and heavy tallest and heaviest dinosaur

Sauroposeidon is the tallest dinosaur ever

I guess height isn't a problem
