Tyrannosaurids

The tyrannosaurid family was a group of large carnivorous dinosaurs from the Late Cretaceous that was the pinnacle of the Tyrannosauroidea, a group of coelurosaurian theropods that appeared in the Jurassic. Other earlier tyrannosauroid families included the Proceratosauridae and the Dryptosauridae. Tyrannosaurids are typically large- to giant-sized predators like the famous T. rex, and most have reduced forelimbs with only two visible fingers. The family is divided into the albertosaurine and tyrannosaurine subfamilies, but recently a tribe called Alioramini has been named. This group is either a cluster within the subfamily Tyrannosaurinae or a sister group to the entire family Tyrannosauridae.

Tyrannosaurids seem to be Fire Dinosaurs by default, regardless of size. This might be due to the stereotypical depictions in paleo media of Tyrannosaurus living near or wandering in a volcanic surrounding, or because fire symbolically represents raw power and tyrannosaurs appear as if they would rely on brute strength alone.
