Dinos are T-rex-like monsters that are scaled down a bit. They appeared in the very first Monster Rancher game and were then replaced by similar monsters called Zuums. Many different types of Dinos were characters in the Monster Rancher anime series. They were portrayed as overly-confident, but having great physical strength and energy projection.
Due to fan requests for a celebration of the 5th anniversary of the original Monster Rancher game, Dino was brought back in Monster Rancher 4 as a rare Zuum sub-breed that can be obtained by using a copy of the original Monster Rancher 1 game disc (or almost any other XBox game).
The name Dino is short for "dinosaur", because it looks like a Tyrannosaurus.
