"Raptors prey on the prized herd of longhorns that belong to Butch and his Tyrannosaurus Rex family. Raptors—or Rustlers, as Butch calls them—sport wiry, feathered bodies and hardly compare in size or strength to a T-Rex. But as a group, the Raptors pose quite a threat, and even a T-Rex may need to call in reinforcements before tangling with them.
Bubbha (voiced by Dave Boat) is the leader of the Velociraptors who has blue and purple skin.
Lurleane (voiced by Carrie Paff) is the only female Velociraptor of Bubbha’s gang who has light red skin.
Pervis (voiced by Mackenzie Grant) is the dumbest Velociraptor of Bubbha’s gang who has light-gray skin.
Earl (voiced by John Ratzenberger) is the unhinged one liner Velociraptor who has light blue skin.
They first appear when Arlo alerts them to his presence by screaming after getting bitten on the leg by Spot, Bubbha asks him what he's doing, Arlo nervously replies that he is doing nothing, but Earl suggests otherwise, and says to him that any trespassers must be killed, but Butch, Nash and Ramsey come in to counter-attack, Pervis starts to attack Arlo first, while Bubbha goes for Nash, but Ramsey saves him from Bubbha, while Lurleane and Pervis pin Butch, Arlo attacks them, then they try to attack him back, but they get defeated by Butch throwing Lurleane and Pervis away, also with Bubbha and Earl retreating and nearly getting his tail bitten off by Butch in which Arlo, Butch, and Nash and Ramsey roar at them to prevent the Velociraptors from stealing the longhorn herd and from coming back. They are not seen again for the rest of the film.
Velociraptors appear as non-playable characters throughout the game. They only appear in Level 7 of Journey Mode and in Endless Mode as obstacles that the player must avoid. Depending whether the player is controlling Arlo or Spot individually or Arlo and Spot together, touching either one of them causes the player to lose a life or an instant game over.
Earl is one of the least recognizable portrayals of John Ratzenberger, next to Mustafa and Gordon (from Brave) due to having one line and speaking with a southern accent.
Their portrayal in the movie is fairly accurate. Fossils do show evidence that Velociraptors did indeed have feathers, however, unlike the movie in which only a few sections of their body are covered with feathers, their entire bodies, minus the exception of the snout and their teeth also stick out from their mouths.
