There were five promotional CGI-only Original video animation episodes released, the first four were sold with the initial Dinozone toys in Japan. Dino Tyranno came with an episode entitled "Revive, Dinosoldier", while Gigano Dragon came with a video called "Gigano Dragon Strikes Back!!". A third featuring the Cerazaur Brothers was sold with Dinostyras. A fourth OVA was released with Nightwing. A final fifth OVA was given only to subscribers of Televi Magazine and Comic Bom Bom. The pilot was dubbed into English and released in the US on a VHS tape, available as a special offer with the toys in 2000. The voices used in the pilot were different from the cast for the series, as Saban were not involved in the dubbing of the pilot.
It has been 65,000,000 years since the Dino Knights defeated the Dragozaurs. When the Dragozaurs return, a boy named Kaito reawakens the Dino Knights. The battle between the Dino Knights and the Dragozaurs begins once again as the Dino Knights prevent the Dragozaurs from stealing Earth's life force.
When the Dragozaurs first attacked, the planet chooses prehistoric animals to fight them, converting them into the Dino Knights (ダイノソルジャー Dinosoldiers?). Normally fossilized, a Dino Knight can assume a more metallic form when re-animated. The command to power up the Dino Knights with the Dino Daggers is "Dino Power, Energize!".
The Dino Knights reside in the Dinotarium.
