- "Come 'Rang or Shine!"
- —Dino-Rang's official catchphrase
Unlike most unruly dinosaurs, Dino-Rang has a calm and collected demeanor. However, if anyone calls him a dragon by mistake, Dino-Rang will lose his cool, resulting in a furious display of whirling boomerangs. Even though he loves being a Skylander, he still dreams of the hunting plains of his homeland.
For years, Dino-Rang trained to use the weapons of his tribe – earthen boomerangs. His people were skilled hunters in a world far away from the realm of Skylands. As he slept one night, a freak portal suddenly opened beneath him. Unsure of how or why he arrived in Skylands, Dino-Rang set out to explore the world that was suddenly his new home. Eventually becoming a Skylander, he now fights with his own brand of dino-justice, while seeking out the fabled Twin Diamond Boomerangs, which he believes could hold the clues to his greater destiny.
Dino-Rang came from a tribe of skilled hunting dinosaurs from a faraway world. There, he had been the first to twirl the legendary twin boomerangs and was top of his tribe. But his fortunes changed one night when a portal popped open beneath his bed and sucked him into a strange Skylands temple. He was surrounded by sinister wizards, whose spell had gone askew. Dino-Rang broke out his boomerangs and, before the wizards could say 'boo' (or even 'bo'), they were blasted to the remote Outlands.
Threat averted, he began searching for the fabled Twin Diamond Boomerangs which he hoped could take him home. He is yet to find them, but he did find Master Eon - who promptly made him a Skylander.
Dino-Rang uses his boomerangs to attack his foes at range or to deflect their attacks. He can also use the surrounding dirt to form traps that spring up from the earth when an opponent gets too close.

- Despite his size, Dino-Rang is a suprisingly gifted dancer. Sometimes though, he forgets his own strength.

- His catchphrase is a play on "Come Rain or Shine".
- Dino-Rang can summon Stone Fists like Bash does.
- He also resembles the platypus hunter Liam McCracken from the Phineas and Ferb episode "Primal Perry", as both use boomerangs as weapons and speak in Australian accents.
- He, Slobber Tooth and Chopper are currently the only Skylanders who are dinosaurs.
- His name is a pun on the words "Dinosaur" and "Boomerang".

- Also, they both can speak in an Australian accent.
- Dino-Rang and Gusto both wield boomerangs.
- In Skylanders: Giants, Dino-Rang can preform a glitch were he seems to moonwalk. In order for this glitch to work, Dino-Rang must have the upgrade Boomerang Finesse. Then the player must make Dino-Rang run to a wall, crate or enemy and hold the A button. As long as the player holds down the A button, Dino-Rang can walk in any direction and still face forward.
- This glitch returns in Skylanders: Trap Team.
