Megamorphs are four companion books in the Animorphs series writted by K.A. Applegate. They are different from most of the other books in the series because they are narrated by all of the Animorphs, usually switching point-of-view at the beginning of each chapter. Their exact chronology to the other books is known via the Anibase, which states that it corresponds to the book release dates, however they are numbered as Megamorphs #1, Megamorphs #2, Megamorphs #3, and Megamorphs #4.

In the Time of Dinosaurs is the second book in the Megamorphs series. With respect to continuity, it takes place between Books #18: The Decision and #19: The Departure. It is about Marco discovering a sunken submarine which the Animorphs decide to investigate. Once at the submarine, a huge explosion occurs, and sends the Animorphs back millions of years, into the time of the dinosaurs, where they not only deal with dinosaurs and finding a way back home, but they get pulled into a battle between two alien races who settled on prehistoric Earth.
Main article: Elfangor's Secret
Elfangor's Secret is the third book in the Megamorphs series. With respect to continuity, it takes place between Books #29: The Sickness and #30: The Reunion. It deals with Visser Four finding the Time Matrix and going back in time to change historical events to the Yeerks' invasion of Earth even easier. The Animorphs are able to follow the Visser through time because of Drode, but one of the Animorphs has to die in exchange.
Main article: Back to Before
Back to Before is the fourth and final book in the Megamorphs series. With respect to continuity, it takes place between Books #40: The Other and #41: The Familiar. In this book, Jake is tempted by Drode into accepting an alternate reality in which the Animorphs never receive the morphing power. The results are drastic: Tobias becomes a Controller after joining The Sharing and is later killed for being infested with a Yeerk that was a spy for Visser One; Marco and Rachel begin to date, and both are later killed; Ax escapes the Dome ship even without the Animorphs' help and begins to warn the people of Earth about the Yeerk invasion; Cassie is killed by a Dracon beam, but comes back to life as she is sub-temporally grounded (an anomaly), and she grounds the true timeline. The Ellimist reveals that they would have won in this timeline, but they would have all died.
