The Tyrannosaurus Rex or T.Rex, is a large theropod dinosaur that appears throughout the Turok franchise.

In the video games, the T.Rex appears mostly as a boss and in some cases, it appears as a mini-boss.

Acclaim VariantsEdit

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter Edit

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter had one sole T.Rex in the game. A massive, green T.Rex by the name of Thunder. This Tyrannosaurus acts as a boss battle, and features multiple attacks, such as a laser eye, and flame breath, which is forcefully ejected out of its mouth.

This T.Rex is very large, being just over the average size of a Tyrannosaurus Rex in reality. This is the only T.Rex in Dinosaur Hunter.

Turok: Evolution Edit

Turok: Evolution possesses two Tyrannosauruses. One is encountered early on, in the third chapter, during Summit Battle. It's feral, bearing allegiance to no one, and it's seen devouring a Brachiosaurus.

In terms of health, it's relatively weak, and is realistic in terms of appearance and performance. Unlike Dinosaur Hunter, this T.Rex is a deeper brown color.

The second T.Rex is under the command of Captain Tobias Bruckner. It's armed with Miniguns, Flamethrowers, and armor, which can cause the player sever physical harm. It acts as a boss battle, with immense health, and is a oblique reference to Thunder, who acted in a strikingly similar manner to this Tyrannosaur.

Propaganda VariantsEdit

Propaganda Games had a few variants of the Tyrannosaurus species spread out over their games. Turok (2008) had one sole T.Rex in the game, with Juvenile Tyrannosaurus Rexes being present in one level.

Turok (2008)Edit

Pre-ReleaseEdit

In many pre-release Alpha shots, there are screenshots of the T.Rex, prior to a major, and obvious redesign. In this Alpha stage, the T.Rex was way larger, and had a much more angular appearance, especially around the skull and jaw, which weren't nearly as rounded as they are in the current release.

This Rex type also possessed black eyes, with yellow irises, and were shown to be very strong, with one hunting a Dilophosaurus, despite having massive holes blown out of its side and neck. Unlike Mama Scarface as of now, this T.Rex could actually stand with its head higher than its tail, giving it even more height against adversaries.

It is heavily implied that these are all different Tyrannosauruses, and they were to have been encountered in massive jungle areas, alongside MG Soldiers, and the aforementioned Dilophosaurus.

Mama ScarfaceEdit

Mama Scarface is the primary Tyrannosaurus antagonist in game, after the redesign in dinosaurs. She is massive, and acts as a boss enemy, and crowd clearer, as she is encountered multiple times, coming after MG forces, while steering clear of Joseph Turok and his Whiskey Company allies.

She is very large in size, and sports a dark brown colour, with a massive, rounded skull, and a severe gash wound on her face, which resulted in the loss of her right eye. Said wound is constantly bleeding in game, and is depicted with a massive scar, hence the creature's name.

She is fought as a boss on two occasions, one during Mother Superior, and another, during An Eye for an Eye. During the first encounter, she is presented as enraged at the slaying of her offspring, and attacks Turok relentlessly, going as far as to slam her head into crevices she can barely fit into just to try and reach him. Once Turok downs her, he attempts to kill her, but his shaken off, and knocked out until nighttime.

In the latter encounter, she, still angered, attacks Turok again. This time, however, once she goes down, Turok primes and slams a grenade into her skull, causing it to explode after a few moments, resulting in her death.

Juvenile Tyrannosaurus RexEdit

This dinosaur species is not seen until Mother Superior, where they are depicted as crowding around in a pack, in their mother's nest. They look very much similar to their mother, however, they can come in multiple colours and variants, ranging from brown, to green, to even blue.

After the brief appearance in the nest, these dinosaurs never make another appearance.

Turok 2 (Cancelled)Edit

Overview

Homeworld:

Terraformed Planet

Era:

Cretaceous

Distinctions:

Jungle T.Rex: Red coloration, with a spine much akin to a Spinosaurus on its neck.
Desert T.Rex: Brown coloration, with rocky armour covering its hide. Scar on its left eye, much like Mama Scarface.
Swamp T.Rex: Green in coloration, with a small dorsal ridge, like the Jungle T.Rex. Had the largest size in terms of T.Rexes.

Lifespan:

25-30 years.

Other Nomenclature:

Rex

 

While most T.Rexes in the franchise have been the same general species, Turok 2 was going to incorporate variants based on their environment.

Jungle T.RexEdit

There was also a Jungle Rex variant which would have appeared in the jungles of Turok 2. This Rex was a red-ish orange color with a ridge of large and sharp spines going down the spinal ridge, akin to the Cretaceous carnivore: Spinosaurus. However, said spines only went down the neck, rather than the entire spine.

This dinosaur was one of the two to be seen in combat, the other being the Desert T.Rex. In this case, the Jungle T.Rex is seen in combat with Turok, as the latter uses a Laser Cannon against it.

Desert T.RexEdit

The Desert Rex was a variant of Rex that is found in the desert. The T.Rex would have hard stone-like scales on it's body. Turok 2's lone, fourteen second trailer depicted a massive Desert T.Rex storming around an MG complex.

Any attempts to fire at it failed, as the Rex's hide, which is essential stone, deflected the rounds, giving the dinosaur the opportunity to kill and maim many MG Soldiers, before Turok arrives.

This Rex's design seems to have been altered in development, as the trailer shows the T.Rex as having a skull that is elongated, much like a Tyrannosaurus in reality. However, later renders and concept art shows a stubbier face, and smaller, sharper teeth, which also grow in number compared to earlier, where there were fewer teeth, but they were larger.

Swamp T.RexEdit

The Swamp T.Rex would've appeared in the swamps of Turok 2. It is the third, and last variant that would've been seen. It is large, very bulky and muscular and it, like the Jungle T.Rex had a ridge of spines going down the spinal area.

This Rex's spines were more toned down and rounded compared to the Jungle variant, however, unlike the others, the row of spines when down its back, instead of ending at the neck. Its skin is a green-ish color with some areas being tinted a black colour.

This variant's concept art suggests its size to be larger than Mama Scarface or the other Turok 2 variants, as it easily dwarfs Turok in size.

In the ComicsEdit

Tyrannosaurus appears in every incarnation of the Turok comic book series.

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter (Dynamite Entertainment)Edit

Main article: Tyrannosaurus (Dynamite Comics)

Tyrannosaurus rex features heavily in the Dynamite Turok: Dinosaur Hunter series. It is notable as the first incarnation T. rex in the Turok franchise to be depicted with feathers, as per current scientific understanding of the animal.

TriviaEdit

  • In the comics, the T.Rex appears with 3 fingers in several issues. This is most likely due to artistic license. In reality however, a recent specimen now displayed at the Houston Museum of Natural Science has a three fingered Rex. It is unknown if this is due to a mutation, recessive gene appearing, or that all Tyrannosaurs had 3 fingers and this is the first specimen found with the third finger intact.
