The Dinobots

Dinosaurs were understood to have been sluggish and stupid. They dragged their tails on the ground, and T.rex walked fully upright. S.O.S. Dinobots

Dinosaurs survived the mass extinction of 65 million years ago and lived on into the present on the time-displaced, and energy-rich, Dinobot Island.

The most prominent saurians were the Dinobots, five rebellious (yet extremely powerful) Autobots, who proved time and again a match for an army of Decepticons. Other dinosaur Transformers are Trypticon, Sky Lynx, and the cassette warriors, Slugfest and Overkill.

Transformers who have Dinosaur altmodes have something known as "dinosaur electrons" within their systems. Transformation causes these electrons to release dinosaur transform static. Thief in the Night

Dinosaurs survived in a part of the Antarctic known as the Savage Land.

Tyrannosaurus Rex

Beast Wars featured two prominent dinosaur transformers, Dinobot (who was either a giant Velociraptor or a small Utahraptor or a regular Deinonychus), and Megatron, whose original and Transmetal altmodes were that of a small Tyrannosaurus. Later, Megatron used the Transmetal Driver to create a drone army of Velociraptors with Cybertronian enhancements. Cutting Edge

Dinobots in Transformers: Animated

Dinosaurs were now understood to have been quick and agile, with T.rex holding its body parallel to the ground. Grimlock and Snarl are dinosaurs (a T.rex and a Triceratops), while Swoop is a Pteranodon. They form the Dinobots, based on animatronic robots that had entertained the public. Blast from the Past


  • Many, if not all, dinosaur-based alt-modes in Transformers fictions are now known to be horribly, horribly outdated.
  • The Tyrannosaurus is the most used alt- mode.
