Rexes are blue dragon-like dinosaurs that first appear in Super Mario World, later making more minor appearances in games like Super Princess Peach and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. They live on Dinosaur Land and serve as enemies against Mario. They move along the ground, similar to Goombas and Koopa Troopas. However, when Mario stomps on them, they will become flattened and begin moving at double speed. A second stomp would defeat it permanently. Alternatively, a spin jump, Fireballs from Fire Mario, a spin from Cape Mario, and Invincible Mario can defeat them in one hit.
Rex appears in The Marvelous Misadventures of Bowser.
They reappear in this game. This time, there will be two new sub species: Flying Rex, which will fly, and Pyro Rex, wich will shoot fireballs. In this game, we will discover that Draggadon is somehow related to Rex.
Rexes reappear in the Mario & Luigi series, appearing in Mario & Luigi: Sage Quest. They are found on Mount Grumbledome, battling alongside Bullies, Monty Moles, Tanoombas, Stone Spikes and Pyro Guys. In battle, Rexes can be decreased in size by repeatedly jumping on them, and they attack by simply charging into a Mario Bro. (which is next to impossible to dodge or counter when they are at their full size) and creating shockwaves by performing a Ground Pound.
Rex appears as a starting racer in Mario Kart: V² Circuit. He is a mediumweight with a small size. He has an average speed, average acceleration, slightly above good handling and average traction.
He's one of the victims of the Kirthar's Snap Finger.
