Bradycneme was a theropod dinosaur from Late Cretaceous Romania. Right now it is currently known from a partial right lower leg.


Bradycneme is shown with partial feathering following a red pigment following from its tail to the face of the Bradycneme, while the rest of the skin is dull gray. Bradycneme is also shown to have many dromaeosaur and troodont features (eg. a sickle claw, teeth, large forelimbs), but it was once believed to be a troodont so it is forgivable.

Episode 6:  The Great Survivors

Bradycneme appears on the episode The Great Survivors, it is introduced as an apex predator, but later is showing how small it actually is compared to other dinosaurs in its environment, and while it saw a flock of Hatzegopteryx incoming, it ran away. And after four months since the famous asteroid appeared, the Bradycneme is shown feeding on a carcass of an adult Magyarosaur, but is scared off by an Hatzegopteryx, but then finds a juvenile carcass of another Magyarosaur, but another Hatzegopteryx appears, then the Bradycneme, once again retreats, then it finds a lizard on a ribcage and finally eats it without any predator coming, swallows it whole and it wanders off.


  • Bradycneme was covered in fuzz, while the real-life Bradycneme was covered in feathers, also with a tail fan.
  • The Bradycneme has a recycled model of the Alaskan Troodont, only with a different colour scheme, making it have two large forelimbs, teeth, and a sickle claw, while in reality, alvarezsaurs lacked teeth, had short, stubby arms, had a slightly longer neck, and lacked the sickle claw like what dromaeosaurs and troodonts have, and it might be the most inaccurate dinosaur portrayed on this documentary. (however Bradycneme was once thought to be a troodont so it is forgivable.)
