The invisible dinasaur hed is the arguably the most mysterious and interesting part of Lost. It is most famous for being so well-hidden by the CGI department it was not discovered until the Season 5-6 hiatus by a Lostpedia Forums user.


In the original airing of "The Shape of Things to Come", viewers were too distracted by Smokey pwning the mercs to notice the appearance of the dinasaur hed. However, a fan discovered the hed while watching fan trailers on YouTube. Initially believed to be lightning around Smokey, it was realised that it was actually a dinasaur in disguise. Initially the appearance was disputed, but slowly the appearance was accepted as canon.

Other appearances

This discovery led to other various hidden sightings of "the hed". It was discovered in the opening scene of the pilot, Jacob's cabin in "The Man Behind the Curtain", at the Purge, at Sydney Airport, in the tiger pit, and behind the four toed statue. In each of these scenes he displays an amazing ability to resurrect characters (which means bring them back to life). True story.


It was leaked by an intoxicated Lost producer that the final scene of the series is of the Hed being defeated by the only character who possesses stronger powers: Vincent.

Cult of the Dinasaur Hed

After the stunning realisation of the Hed, many Lostpedia Forums users dedicated their lives to his teachings. The Cult is now as popular (and the teachings as true) as Scientology.
