Characters

Protagonists

  • Tom Carter, the group's leader: Tom is charismatic and secure. His father is a famous paleontologist, who disappeared during a research expedition. Tom, curious to find out what happened to his father, looks in his father's lab and finds an odd board game. With the board game, he and his friends can teleport to the past and transform into dinosaurs. He finds out that he and his friends have to save the world from Neceron, the Lord of the Dragons and his allies. Tom transforms into a Tyrannosaurus, and in the last episode, successfully defeats Neceron, and saves the futures of the dinosaurs and the human race. In season 2, Tom gets the Dinowatch. A high tech wrist device that allows him to transform into metallic dinosaurs. The Dinowatch contains; Humanoid Tyrannosaurus Rex, Smilodon, Gigantopithecus (gorilla in english) and a Raptor. Later on when they can extract DNA from other dinosaurs, Tom gets two new forms; Triceratops and Ankylosaurus.
  • Bob: Transforms into a Triceratops. He is really loyal to Tom and likes eating. He is very strong and good at combat.
  • John: Transforms into a Smilodon. He is independent and a good fighter. He works as a circus stunt performer and is very fast on legs. John is a very important part of dinofroz helping the dinofroz immeasurably by showcasing his natural human borne talents to retain the rockfroz.
  • Eric: Transforms into a Pterosaur. He is a master of technology. He is loyal to Tom, but not very self-confident

Antagonists

  • Neceron, Lord of The Dragons: Neceron is the Lord of all Dragons. He is merciless and will do anything in order to defeat the Dinofroz. He only cares about himself, the enslavement of humans and torturing non dragon animals. His breed is unknown. He is killed in the first season finale by Tom.
  • General Vlad, the Vampire Dragon: Vlad is one of Neceron's generals. He appears to be an aged, a veteran warrior and more skilled than the other generals, Gladius and Kobrax. He is Neceron's most appreciated general, but this won't prevent Neceron from stealing his powers in the last episode. He was once attacked by Gladius and Kobrax, who were jealous of him. They seriously wounded him, but he managed to stay alive. Vlad was also good friends with Treek, another dragon. However, Treek betrayed him and their friendship ended. But still, Vlad freed Treek when Neceron had captured him. He can minimize himself, and by biting his foes neck, he can transform the unlucky victim into a vampire dragon. It is possible that he did not die at the end of the series, as he was not seen buried under the rocks like the other Generals, after the Rockfroz explosion. Vlad is not completely evil. He appears to be very loyal and sensible too. He reappears in the second season as Drakemon's general. Soon Vlad realise that Drakemon is becoming insane and eventually helps the Dinofroz to save the world; proving that Vlad was the true future spy that Drakemon feared of from the whole season. His new appearance is more different than his wyvern-like body, he resembles more of a two tailed European dragon with bat ears.
  • General Gladius, the Gladiator Dragon: Gladius is one of Neceron's generals. He appears to be the youngest and is not very wise. He blindly obeys his lord, and even after Neceron stole his powers, he refused to accept that his lord was wrong. Gladius is very strong but he has difficulties fighting the Dinofroz. He is very jealous of Vlad and along with Kobrax tried to kill Vlad. Gladius would have killed Vlad but two Vendetta Dragons appeared and he did not get the chance. Gladius mainly has fire-based powers. At the end of the series, he is seen to be buried under rocks after the Rockfroz explosion.
  • General Kobrax, the Serpent Dragon: Kobrax is one of Neceron's generals. He seems to be older than Gladius, but a lot younger than Vlad. He is very intelligent, but he uses his cleverness for evil purposes. He is very sly and he is very jealous of Vlad. He never acts thoughtlessly, and he is always word-fighting with Vlad. Kobrax can spit a paralyzing venom, a deadly venom and fire. He can also tangle the foes with vines and squeeze them. He is a very dangerous dragon, but obeys Neceron quite blindly. He wants to be the greatest of the generals, which made him try to kill Vlad. At the end of the series, he is seen to be buried under rocks after the Rockfroz explosion.
  • General Treek: Treek is Neceron's former general and the only dragon along with Neceron of unknown breed, although he looks like a Vendetta Dragon. He is the only dragon who knows that the dragons are going to be extinct if Neceron continues to rule, but he is considered a traitor and was imprisoned. At one point, he escaped by tricking Gladius and organised a Revolt of the Dragons. His army was overpowered by Neceron's soldiers. He fights with Vlad, trying to convince him of Neceron's intentions. Vlad doesn't believe him and Treek was forced to hurt him in order to make him listen. When Treek was ready to smash his claws at Vlad, Kobrax appeared and spits him venom on Treek. Then Treek has imprisoned yet again. When Neceron orders Galdius and Kobrax to kill him, Vlad interferes and says he wants to take revenge on Treek, as Treek betrayed him. Despite the anger Vlad had at Treek for betraying him, he frees Treek. Treek leaves and did not appear until the final battle, when he tries to find Vlad and save him. He is the only other general besides Vlad, who is sure to still be alive. Treek's DNA is found by Professor Warnell, an old friend of James Carter. He returns in Season 2 as the main antagonist, renaming himself Drakemon. He is more humanoid and more different than his original, Drakemon has a mane made out of fire on his head to his back neck; along with Vald, Arctic and Petraeus who all three also have fire manes. As Drakemon, his goal to save the dragon species from extinction he is more paranoid when he suspect a traitorous spy in his rank. When Drakemon and Tom face each other in the final showdown, Drakemon was about to push Tom (as a T.Rex) in a fiery cavern, but Tom pushed Drakemon off him and Drakemon falls in the cavern killing him and his futureself.
  • General Artik: Arctic is one of Drakemon's generals. He is a white bearded asian dragon who his design resembles a bit like a ninja. Arctic use his wings as blades. Arctic is a calm and intellect but aggressive stragesit. He has a kindred friendship with Petraeus since both were recruited as generals as the same time. He along with Petraeus keep questioning Lord Drakemon of his plans and secrets that Drakemon keep hiding from them. General Arctic was accused of being a spy and a traitor to Drakemon and was put in the gladiator area to fight against the Fighter Dragons and Arctic was soon put in prison. From his accusation he was replace with Natterjack to take his place as general.
  • General Petraeus: Petraeus is one of Drakemon's general. He is a short red dragon with a hammer on his tail and his wings look shield-like. His appearance seem closely related to a viking design He smacks his hammer tail on the ground to make shockwaves and use his wings as a shield. Petraeus seem to be rough and slightly aggressive when things are getting off track with suspicion of a traterious spy.
