Toro is a major antagonist in the Jurassic Park franchise, first appearing as the main antagonist of the first season Netflix TV series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous and a minor antagonist in the second season, and a minor antagonist in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

He is an aggressive, vengeful Carnotaurus who works for the Indominus rex intends to kill whoever stands in his way and his primary desire is to massacre the campers of Isla Nublar, making him their arch-nemesis.

Background

Toro is one of the many dinosaurs cloned by Henry Wu under the instructions of Commander Vic Hoskins. He was intended to be used as a military weapon, much like the other massive carnivores. However, at some point in his life, he became so aggressive and had to be moved to a separate enclosure away from the guests.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

The day after the campers arrived at Camp Cretaceous once it was opened, Toro stumbled upon and attacked Darius Bowman and Kenji Kon after they broke into his enclosure. The pair managed to buy themselves time by using Toro's inability to make sharp turns against him, causing the dinosaur to trip up, before escaping from the paddock through a feeding cage. While attempting to reach Darius and kill him, Toro ended up scraping his face on the metal of the cage, receiving a huge scar across his snout and resulting in him having a vendetta against Darius and Kenji.

A few days later, the recently escaped Indominus rex arrived at Toro's paddock. After engaging in a brief confrontation with the Carnotaurus, the Indominus broke through the fence of Toro's paddock, freeing him in the process. However, she left without harming the Carnotaurus, leaving Toro to escape and roam free around the park.

Toro later encountered Darius and Kenji's group at the Mosasaurus Feeding Show. At first, he originally did not see them and was busy playing with a barrel until Brooklynn, Kenji, and Sammy collided into each other. However, he was quickly distracted by Darius throwing a rock. Once he lost interest in the rock, Toro began to sniff out the group as they were climbing the stairs to the park's monorail so they can escape in it. Unfortunately, Toro became alerted to their presence after the monorail's automated greeting played. He began to attack them, but kept tripping on the stairs, which eventually broke due to his huge size and weight, sending him plummeting to the ground and allowing the kids to escape. Toro soon recovered from his fall and returned to the Jurassic World Lagoon, scarring off two camp counsellors Dave and Roxie, who had arrived to look for the lost campers.

Later that night, Toro managed to find his way into the park's tunnel system, where he once again encountered and attacked Darius' group, eventually losing them in some of the vents. Toro found them again after Darius and Yasmina Fadoula attempted to break a vent cover open, breaking through one behind them in an attempt to kill Brooklynn, although the group eventually escaped once they succeeded at breaking the cover in front of them. Toro quickly relocated them, however, and resumed his attack on the group. Although he successfully destroyed a trap set for him at first, he was however lured into another one using compressed air tanks and a taser to trigger an explosion, heavily scarring and burning Toro in the process. Once he had recovered enough to stand up, Toro angrily glared down at Darius before limping away in defeat, exposing him multiple scars and burn marks while he promises his revenge on another day.

he will appear in the second season where he is assigned by rexy to help the campers survive until people would come to rescue them.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Three years after the destruction of Jurassic World, it is revealed that Toro, alongside many surviving Carnotaurus, is remaining on Isla Nublar, but will now face an impending danger, alongside many other creatures, in the form of an erupting volcano.

Later, Claire Dearing's group was sent to Isla Nublar to save the dinosaurs from the impending volcanic eruption. While one Carnotaurus was killed by Rexy, the T. rex of Isla Nublar, while trying to attack Owen Grady, Claire and Franklin Webb, at least Toro and another individual were successfully transported off the island to the mainland, where he is captured by Eli Mills and brought to the Lockwood Manor. Later, Toro is freed along with the other dinosaurs by Maisie Lockwood. He joins Rexy in tearing apart and devouring Mills as he attempts to flee with the Indominus rex's DNA sample that is eventually destroyed during the attack. Rexy then knocks over Toro with her head, causing the Carnotaurus to get back up and cowardly retreat into the wilds of northern California.

Jurassic World: Dominion

Toro is set to appear in the third and final installment of the trilogy, but his role is unknown. It is clear, however, that he was released along with all the other Nublar survivors from the Lockwood incident.

Appearance

Toro is a large reddish-brown adult male Carnotaurus with black patterns and having a build common of his kind, except he has a stunted horn on the right side of his head. His most distinguishing feature is a large scar on his snout after scraping his face on the metal of a feeding cage during an attempt to catch Darius. By the end of the first season, he is covered in severe burns everywhere with the exception of his tail, giving him a darker coloration.

Personality

Toro is extremely aggressive, vengeful and obsessed with killing people and other smaller dinosaurs. He becomes even more ruthless after Darius escapes from him, thus injuring his snout while he is later scarred and disfigured. However, as much as Toro is aggressive, he is also somewhat a coward predator. He runs off from the Indominus rex and slowly retreats from the campers for survival. He also seems to hate Darius, the most out of the campers.
