Rex
Rex

AUTHOR: David Mitchell
(Revision History)

GAMES: SMW, ML.

TYPE: Dinosaur.

TURF: Grasslands, Mountains.

AFFILIATIONS: None.

CLOSE RELATIVES: None.

SKILLS AND ATTACKS: Brainless charge.

STRENGTHS: They can withstand two stomps. That is all.

WEAKNESSES: They are susceptible to everything, not too bright.

BACKGROUND: Rex is a Tyrannosaurus-like dinosaur, only much smaller. He's blue with an orange belly, and he has tiny wings. They're not capable of flight.
Rexes are one of the regular inhabitants of Dinosaur Land, and probably didn't choose to assist Bowser. It is more likely that they was just trying to get a bite to eat, and foolishly thought that Mario looked tasty.

OTHER BACKGROUND INFO:
"As one would expect, you could only meet this kind of enemy in dinosaur land, and there are lots of them too. You have to stomp on a Rex twice to defeat him. Rex has wings, but I don't think he can fly." - SMW Instructions
"It's easy to vex Rex. Stomp once to crunch him like an accordian and twice to get rid of him for good. A Spin Jump takes him out in one step." - Mario Mania

QUOTES:
None.

STATS AND STRATEGIES:
Games: Super Mario World
Items: 1 coin if eaten, or destroyed by a fireball.
Points: 200 by stomp, 100 by cape attack.
Attack Pattern: He usually moves straight forward until he falls or hits something, although sometimes he's smart enough to turn around. After being stomped once, he starts to charge.
Basic Strategies: You can beat Rex in one easy step by stomping him. A cape attack, fireball or Yoshi slurp will work too.
Advanced Strategies: You'll get a coin for beating him with a fireball or eating him (no points, but I think coins are better anyway). You can earn the most points by stomping him, and then trying to land on him again without touching the ground (600 points total) but it's less hassle to spin jump on them if you just want to get past them.
