Dread appears as the main antagonist 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, Lord Dread used to be 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. Dread 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, fed on his thirst for revenge, and mutated him with the powers of the SPORE corrupter into 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. he was attacked by his own raptor warriors for he unintendionly trash talked them about being the masterminds of his assult, and possably due that he couldn't live up to his promise. however, due to being a member of the villain leage, it is possable he will soon be reserected.
Like Cobra, Dread is called a "Lord" even though he has no real power or kingdom to validate this claim. although, the title slightly fits him due to his raptor army or his carnotaur bodyguards. He probably called himself a Lord just because "Lord" sounded scary and intimidating.
