Nigersaurus has the distinction of being one of very few dinosaurs featured in National Geographic in recent years. The magazine did a spread of bizarre dinosaurs including Nigersaurus alongside Dracorex and number of other strangely ornamented dinosaurs. Additionally, a skeleton of Nigersaurus was erected in the National Geographic Museum's main foyer. Toys exist of the animal and it has been shown in documentaries produced by National Geographic as well. Entities such as the New York Times and CNN have carried articles on the dinosaur and interviewed Sereno and others about its teeth and strange skull. The dinosaur has not yet made it to media like Dinosaur King or anything else of that nature, but it has been "speedpainted."
