Dinosaur King
Dinosaur King

Troodon (first spelt "Troödon") was originally confused with Stegoceras because it was only known from teeth, and the teeth of Troodon and Stegoceras were quite similar, despite being unrelated, leading to the idea that Troodon was omnivorous. Originally based on a single tooth, "Troodon" was found to be dubious in a 2017 review, skeletal specimens being moved to the related Stenonychosaurus, Pectinodon, and the new Latenivenatrix.

  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • English: A dinosaur with saw-like teeth. It's pretty smart, with a large brain and big eyes.
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: [sic, no "A"]Dinosaur with saw-like teeth. It's pretty smart, with a large brain and big eyes.
  • According to the English arcade game, the two Troodon in Move Block are parent and child, despite both being the same sized model.
  • Despite Move Block being in the DS game, it is part of a trio featuring Velociraptor instead of Troodon, though Velociraptor's Critical Block is also in this trio. The trio of Moves also uses the same animation as Troodon's trio.
