Best Fictional Dinosaurs

The Top Ten
1 Yoshi Yoshi, once romanized as Yossy, is a fictional anthropomorphic dinosaur who appears in video games published by Nintendo. Often appearing as a sidekick and helper to Mario, Yoshi is most known for his appearances in the Yoshi's Island and the Super Mario franchises.

The king of all fictional dinosaurs.

2 Speckles

You might think I'm crazy, but honestly, Speckles deserves a spot here. Sure, his narration is terrible, but his character was great, even by dino standards. He would do anything to protect his family and is very caring. He is also the most depressing dinosaur I've seen in media.

3 Littlefoot

Nobody can forget Littlefoot from The Land Before Time. He truly cares for his friends and will do anything he can to survive with them and make it home.

Littlefoot is my favorite character.

4 Vastatosaurus Rex

Vastatosaurus Rex is supposed to be an evolved version of Tyrannosaurus Rex. According to the King Kong wiki, V-Rex stands 25 feet tall, measures up to 70 feet long, and weighs around 30 tons. Just imagine these stats and compare them to other theropods. Is there another theropod this heavy and big?

If the Vastatosaurus were real, it would likely be feared by T-Rex, Giganotosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, and even Spinosaurus. The V-Rex has thick, bulky, armored skin that makes bites from other dinosaurs ineffective. Its massive jaw can remove entire chunks from any dinosaur.

The V-Rex can reach speeds of up to 25 mph. If you're a Rex fan, you'd probably thank Peter Jackson for creating this dinosaur and keeping "Rex" dinosaurs as the kings since Tyrannosaurus seems to be less appreciated. I love Vastatosaurus Rex, and it should be at least number 2.

5 Sharptooth

Sharptooth is my little brother's favorite, and I can see why. He is the scariest villain ever, especially considering he comes from a G-rated movie. He possesses supernatural strength and durability, possibly exceeding Rudy from Ice Age 3. He even made my mom, who never cries, cry for killing Littlefoot's mom.

Sharptooth is the best villain ever in a children's movie. He's not your average "little lame kiddie villain" like Joker or Bowser, or other villains who get defeated easily. Sharptooth made history as the most terrifying villain for children.

I just don't like that Sharptooth had to drown.

6 Gertie

Give her credit. She was the first dinosaur to appear in an animated feature.

7 Indominus Rex Indominus rex was the latest attraction in Jurassic World. The hybrid was created by combining the genetic traits of multiple species.

A hybrid mashup of all the deadliest dinosaurs, Indominus Rex is an absolute cold-blooded killing machine, murdering everything in its path. It's even said to contain some human DNA, which might explain its intelligence and why it kills for fun or sport instead of just for food.

Indominus Rex is my personal favorite. In addition to possessing almost supernatural powers, he brings skill and owes it to science, which I love. He also looks very scary and interesting.

8 Blue (Jurassic World)
9 Dino

This dinosaur from The Flintstones is unforgettable. After all, he's still well-known after more than 50 years.

10 Shorty
The Contenders
11 Ducky

Cute, sweet, and innocent. What's not to like about Ducky from The Land Before Time?

Ducky is cute, sweet, and innocent.

12 Rudy

I love the Ice Age franchise! How could this not have been added until me, Ishan, aka Shall-I, did?

13 Arlo (The Good Dinosaur)
14 Barney the Dinosaur Barney The Dinosaur is a purple dinosaur from the TV series "Barney and Friends", as well as the VHS series before that known as "Barney and the Backyard Gang". He was created by Sheryl Leach in 1987, to entertain her 2 year old son. He is infamously known for his "I Love You" song, and his TV series... read more
15 Mokele-mbembe
16 Kron (Dinosaur)

You can hardly tell he's an Iguanodon.

17 Rex
18 Terry
19 Momma Rex

I love the Ice Age franchise! How could this not have been added already?

20 Rexy

WHAT?! Until I, Ishan, aka Shall-I, added her, she wasn't here! She deserves to be number 1!

21 Baby T-rex (Ice Age 3)
22 Eema
23 Raptor Red

Robert T. Bakker did an outstanding job creating a Utahraptor with excellent character development and making her a likable character overall.

24 Ace
25 Birdo (Mario Bros.) Birdo is a dinosaur that is well known for her (or his) confused Gender. It was originally stated that Birdo was a male who believed he was a female, but this was changed in later games. Birdo is commonly referred to as a girl, however, they are in a relationship with Yoshi. Birdo first appeared in... read more
