The Dino and Dinox are enemies that are randomly battled in Golden Sun: The Lost Age. These monsters, resembling the stereotypical depiction of velociraptors, are palette swaps of each other that have differing levels of power and defense and are fought in different locations in the game.

In Golden Sun: The Lost Age[edit]

Dino[edit]

A Dino (デイノ Dino) is an orange-scaled level 10 variant with light green claws and feet. In The Lost Age, it is fought throughout the overworld portion of eastern and central Osenia, as well as throughout Yampi Desert.

The Dino has the highest attack in the overworld portion of where it can be fought, but is less durable than the Troll; these two monsters can essentially be considered equal, and though the Dino has much more agility than the Troll, it is outsped by the Kobold and Momonga in the area. In Yampi Desert, the strongest enemy becomes the Emu.

A Dino's statistics are as follows:

Dinox[edit]

A Dinox (デイノニクス Deinonychus) is a slightly larger light-green-scaled level 27 variant with orange claws and feet. In The Lost Age, it is ideally first fought on the continent of Tundaria and subsequently in Tundaria Tower, and later throughout Ankohl Ruins and the earlier portion of Islet Cave.

The Dinox, amongst its Tundarian and Islet-Cave contemporaries Needle Egg, Squirrelfang, and Stone Soldier, has the highest Attack and HP, but has lower HP than the first two. In a battle, it is possible, though rare, that it will lower an Adept's HP down to 1, and another monster's attack right afterwards would down that Adept, which can be dangerous. In both Tundaria Tower and Ankohl Ruins, however, it is far outperformed by the Minotaurus, which has superior stats everywhere.

A Dinox's statistics are as follows:

Name HP PP Attack Defense Agility Luck
Dinox 172 0 264 82 116 10
Elemental Resistances Turns Exp Coins Item Dropped Drop Rate

Enemy ability where the monster leaps through the air at a targeted Adept and produces a crunching bite symbol that explodes into a large burst of orange-red energy. Deals a Venus-aligned standard physical attack with the end result multiplied by 1.3, and if it is not strong enough to down the target, it has a chance of lowering the target's remaining HP down to 1.


Dinosaurus[edit]

The Dinosaurus (デイノサルス Dinosaurus) exists as a named but unused variant in the code in The Lost Age, where none of its statistics and abilities are coded beyond weak placeholder abilities. Had it been used, it would have appeared as a violet-scaled variant with dark purple claws and feet.
