The T-Rex[1][2] is an enemy from Super Mario Odyssey that can be controlled by Cappy. It is based off of the real and extinct Tyrannosaurus rex.

One T-Rex can be found sleeping in the Cascade Kingdom, as well as a second one sleeping in an optional sub-area. A hostile T-Rex wearing a fedora can be found patrolling the Deep Woods section of the Wooded Kingdom, and one wearing aviator goggles can be found in another bonus area within the Metro Kingdom.[3] The ones in the Cascade and Wooded Kingdoms can be captured, and unlike the other captures, they can only be controlled for a limited time, due to Cappy requiring a lot of effort to keep such a large creature captured. Once the time expires, sleeping T-Rexes disappear and go back to their original point.

According to Kenta Motokura, the director of Super Mario Odyssey, the T-Rex's realistic design was influenced by Super Mario World, another game where Mario is alongside dinosaurs. The development team wanted to include a dinosaur never seen in a Mario game before in hopes of surprising the player, causing the developers to steer away from the more cartoonish and caricatured dinosaur designs used in Super Mario World.[4]
