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 in the Cascade Kingdom, another wearing a fedora can be found sleeping in the Deep Woods section of the Wooded Kingdom,[3] and another wearing aviator goggles can be found in the Metro Kingdom.[4]

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.[5]
