In the Books
- Dinesh does not seem to like the Four Fallen, as he states when he sees Jhi, Briggan, Uraza and Essix, "I have not missed them," It may be possible most of the neutral Great Beasts are hostile towards them, since Arax seemed to only tolerate them in Wild Born. He also mentions Uraza woke him from his sleep, Briggan looked ready to bite someone, and Essix was aloof. He only seemed to feel neutral about Jhi.
- Dinesh can roll into a humungous rock boulder and roll and jump, crushing everything in his path.
- A unique weapon in the game is named the Slate Sword of Dinesh.
