Velocisaurus was small and probably a very fast runner. Although only its foot and part of its leg have been found, the way its foot is designed seems to show that it was made to run. This would have been one very speedy dinosaur.

With its long middle toe it has been associated with the ceratrosaur family. The genus is not universally recognized.
