Chilantaisaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur, possibly a neovenatorid or basal coelurosaur, from the late Cretaceous Ulansuhai Formation of China. Chilantaisaurus was a large theropod, estimated as weighing between 2.5 metric tons and 4 metric tons.

Chilantaisaurus tashuikouensis was a gigantic carnivore belonging to the Neovenatorid theropods. It was discovered in the Ulansuhai Formation in China and lived at the Late Cretaceous period. This colossus measured up to 43 feet in length, 13 feet tall at the hip, and a mass of 6 tonnes. Though at first confused with Shaochilong due to superficial similarities, their size disparity soon cleared this mistake and while they both shared an ancestor to theropods like Allosaurus, carcharodontosaurids and neovenatorids are only very distantly related.

Tashuikouensis likely fed upon very large herbivores, such as the therizinosaurid Nanshiungosaurus or even smaller predators such as the medium sized carcharodontosaurid Shaochilong, which it would kill with its jaws and talons. Since its size and mass would only allow it to reach short bursts of high speed, it could have been an ambush predator or scavenger as well. Chilantaisaurus tashuikouensis coloration and skin texture is unknown.

Tashuikouensis was a carnivore. It lived in the Cretaceous period and inhabited Asia. Its fossils have been found in places such as Inner Mongolia and Zhejiang.

The fossils of Chilantaisaurus tashuikouensis were discovered in the Ulansuhai Formation, Dashuigou Group, 60km north of Chilantai, Alanshan, Inner Mongolia in 1960.

The Holotype (IVPP V.2884), comprises a tooth, fibula (lower leg), humerus (upper arm), first finger bone, metatarsals. Also two tail bones, a partial ilium (bit of a pelvis), femur (thigh) and a tibia (shin), which have all been lost.
