Dread appears as one of the main antagonists in SpongeBob and Friends meet Dinosaur, where in he seeks to conquer the Nesting Grounds and enslave the herd with his raptor army and his mind corrupted Carnotaurs. As it turns out, Dread used to be named Pteranus, the alpha male of a tribe of Pterodactyls. The villain league, meanwhile, didn't think Dark Cynder wouldn't be the best empress unless she could at least show off the typical corruption powers that Lord Cobra and Malefor had given to her. Pteranus was a prime target for Dark Cynder's initiation ceremony due to the small, but great, darkness in his heart. So, she killed off his tribe, left him alive to kidnap him and place him inside a replica project tank, fed on his thirst for revenge, and mutated him with the powers of the SPORE corrupter and several clone DNA of Scar into the creature to turn him into Scar Dread, her newest 2nd-in-command of the Villain League during her reign. His dark magic was just a side effect of the corruption. But now with Cynder cured, it's possible that he's also out to capture her and restore her darkness on orders from Malefor and the Dark Spawn. he was destroyed in a similar manner to Scar because ScroopFan can't resist that kind of demise. However, due to being a member of the villain leage, it is possable he will soon be reserected.
