King of Dinosaurs (キング・オブ・ダイナソー), or Dinosaur (ダイナソー) for short, is a character in The King of Fighters series. He was introduced in The King of Fighters XIV as the heel persona of a familiar character. His official nickname is "Dino King Burning for Revenge" (復讐ふくしゅうゆる恐竜王きょうりゅうおう).

He is voiced by Hikaru Hanada.

Development

When the game's director, Yasuyuki Oda, came by with a drawing of a Dino-wrestler, Eisuke Ogura and the other developers immediately wanted to use it for the new game. Ogura insists that King of Dinosaurs is not Tizoc, despite evidence to the contrary.

Story

King of Dinosaurs is the heel persona of Tizoc. After he lost against Nelson, he couldn't face the disgrace. To avoid tarnishing the honorable image of his face persona, he adopted this identity to settle the score.

Personality

Dinosaur is a fiercely competitive man with a primal attitude. As a heel, he is hilariously over the top and is also shown to keep up overdramatics even though in the end they’re more of a monologue, like he’s talking to himself. Despite his confidence, he seems to having trouble pinning down his new persona. As shown in his ending when he repeatedly pondered a new diet for himself.

Powers

  • Great Strength: The King of Dinosaurs says he can lift anyone heavier than him though in reality he can lift five average people at most.

Fighting Style

Dinosaur's fighting style is a twist of Pro Wrestling that's grapple-focused, with many dynamic and crushing hold attacks including a highly exaggerated Hurricanranna, piledriver, and a charging attack among others. Unlike his old persona Tizoc however, majority of his moves are more feral and ruthless including that he uses his teeth, and uses his claws to scratch the opponent in certain moves.
