  • Tenontosaurus appeared in Jurassic Fight Club where a pack of Deinonychus ambushed a herd and seperated one away to kill.
  • In Jurassic Park I the comic, Dr. Alan Grant and Dr. Ellie Sattler had found Tenontosaurus fossils and Dr. Grant theorizes that these bones were the last meal of a fossilised pack of Velociraptor (which is actually a reclassified Deinonychus in this comic series) that they had just uncovered.
