Okay, I literally sat on this all day. I’m sorry it took me so long to answer.
This kind of turned out as which Dinosaur I identified them as the most rather than… their favorites omg im sorry.
Also, please don’t apologise for your English, omg. Especially if it isn’t your first language, omg. I’m honestly super impressed by people who can communicate in languages that aren’t their native one.
Sawamura Daichi: Triceratops - A little obvious. Triceratops had a large frill on its head that is commonly thought to be used for defence, and horns that were thought to be used to ward off enemies. However it was more likely that this horns were used for show as the density of the bone is too high to have withstood impact. Daichi reminds of a Triceratops due to his thicker figure and his strong defence for his team.
They were also pack animals.
Sugawara Koushi: Oviraptor - Oviraptor is one of the first fossils we’ve found that has shown us that dinosaurs may have been brooding creatures. Or at least, adapted the nature to insure survival of their offspring. It was large, and had feathering that was majorily for making itself appear larger than it was. This creature reminded me of Sugawara due to the fact that it was a bird-like large and could have thrown its weight around, but most likely didn’t unless it was threatened. Or so we believe.
Azumane Asahi: Carnotaurus - Carnotaurus was a dinosaur who was an incredible hunter with sharp horns prodtruding from its eyebrow-bones. This creature also had a very thick skull that was probably used for bashing against its enemies. It was probably an incredible runner and with a build up of speed would probably ram its head against its other creatures with great force. Although our crow-ace is weak-hearted he is very strong, and I think he would line up well with a Carnotaurus.
I considered more of an omnivore, but for some reason, Asahi and a Carnotaurus just seemed like a good fit.
Nishinoya Yuu: Ornithomimus - I actually don’t know a whole lot about this species of Dinosaur, but it appears that it was a smaller lightweight carnivore that would have been able to steal and cause problems for larger dinosaurs. I believe that this corrilates well to how Noya acts on the court.
Tanaka Ryuunosuke: Velociraptor - The velociraptor, is very well known and is capable of bringing down much larger prey than itself. However it was not nearly as large as it was made out to be in the Jurassic Park series. These creatures would reach about 2m long, but only about .5m tall. However, due to their pack status and the large hooklike claw on their back legs, these dinosaurs were very impressive predators. Their intimidation factor from long narrow faces and claws, makes me think of Tanaka, except he is like a pack of them. All jammed into one person.
Ennoshita Chikara: Troodon - Troodon is among some of my favorite dinosaurs, and had the largest brain cavity - to body size ration, and is often considered to be the smartest of all non-aviary dinosaurs. They were small and fast, but had canine like teeth that were adept at tearing into flesh. Ennoshita reminds me of this dinosaur mostly for his intelligence, and perseverance, something a dinosaur such as this would have needed to evolve a brain capacity such as this.
Kinoshita Hisashi: Gallimimus - A large omniverous dinosaur. I do not know much about this dinosaur, or Kinoshita. ;v;
Narita Kazuhito: Stegosaurus - A large herbivorous dinosaur. I do not know much about this dinosaur, or Narita. ;v;
Kageyama Tobio: Help me. I don’t know.
Hinata Shouyou: Archaeopteryx - Archaeopteryx was one of the more obviously feathered dinosaurs, with visible feathers found with their fossils. I picked this species of dinosaur for Hinata because we believe it was capable of gliding. (Of course there are several other feathered dinosaurs that we belive were able to glide, but this is one of the better known examples.) Its smaller frame would have probably made it a very speedy runner, who was able to leap and glide, much as Hinata does on the court. (Fun fact: Archaeopteryx was about as big as a raven. ovo)
Tsukishima Kei: Diplodocus - Diplodocus is on of the most commonly known sauropod, other than Brontosaurus, which many scientists do not believe actually existed. Diplodocus is not the largest sauropod we’ve ever discovered, but in that sense it reminds me of Tsukishima. It is extreamly large, and is a herbivore, but very few carnivores were actually willing to mess with one of these. They could easily use their tails to crack the jaw, or any other bone, of many large carnivores. (Even a T-Rex, which incidentally is what I corrilated Ushijima with, what is this parallel??)
Yamaguchi Tadashi: Iguanodon - Iguanodon was a transitional dinosaur, which would occasionally stand on two legs to reach for food, but also rest on four legs. It was also an herbivore, but was more common prey than the Diplodocus. However, this dinosaur was not helpless, as few are, and had a large ‘thumb’ spike that it could use to spear its enemies. I think Yama would associate with an Iguanodon well as it is a creature that could appear rather vulnerable, and then break a few necks if needed.
This took me two hours, im sure little me would be so proud we’re finally using all the stock pile of dinosaur knowledge from elementary school.
