Pounders are bipedal Dinotrux with three grooved wheels arranged in a pyramid formation on each foot and a small retractable claw for a tail. Their most notable distinguishing feature is their large crest-shaped head that is built like a hammer at the top of their small-handed torsos, and can be extended to smash objects or enemies.
Pounders travel and live alone, with many other Dinotrux avoiding them at all costs, even if it means abandoning their homes and finding new ones. They also move very fast, seemingly being in one place at one time and then in another the next. They are also notorious for causing destruction wherever they may go; according to Skya's knowledge from her encounter with one that drove her herd away, "once a Pounder moves in, nobody stays".
- They are more hostile and aggressive than their real life counterpart, the Parasaurolophus.
- Only one Pounder is actually seen, and he is dubbed by his species nickname.
- Theoretically one could "outpound a Pounder", but only if they were persistent enough to severely injure it.
