Dinosaur King

Altirhinus' card was activated in Field of Screams in Brazil when its Card Capsule broke open in a bush. He crashed the Olé Cup Parade and began eating from a truck full of melons before Ace fought him, but he slipped away after Spiny entered the battle. After sleeping in the warehouse for the parade floats, Altirhinus broke a giant grass soccer ball off of one of them and pushed it through the streets of Olé while trying to eat it, winding up at the soccer stadium. He faced Chomp before the Alpha Gang gave the dinosaurs a large soccer ball, and the two played keep-away before the ball burst into a swarm of Alpha Droids…who were too dizzy to attack. They then summoned Terry, who defeated Chomp without a Move and then Altirhinus with Neck Crusher, allowing Ursula to claim his card. The Alpha Controller was later used on him offscreen so that the Alpha Gang could summon and control him without the Grass Stone.

In Tee'd Off, Ursula briefly summoned Altirhinus in Augusta, Georgia, to demonstrate how real the dinosaur in Dewey's Super Impact card was, but when the Alpha Gang snatched the Move Card, they accidentally left the Altirhinus card and their Alpha Scanner with him. Dewey then summoned Altirhinus several times to scare the other golf competitors so Samantha could win a tournament, and when the Alpha Gang cornered him during one of these, he tossed the Scanner to hit Altirhinus in the head before it bounced back to them, making the dinosaur think that they'd thrown it. Altirhinus chased after them until Ed summoned Spiny, but then Chomp was summoned to help Altirhinus, summoning a Time Warp. Ursula used Super Impact, summoning Supersaurus to throw Altirhinus into Chomp. It threw Altirhinus at Chomp again, but he dodged and Altirhinus instead hit and defeated Spiny. Then Paris was summoned to use Big Foot Assault and call out Seismosaurus to face Supersaurus. Altirhinus used Super Impact again, but was knocked away by Seismosaurus' tail and hit the Alpha Gang's drilling vehicle, destroying it and defeating him. Ursula and the others tried to grab his card, but Samantha hit golf balls at them, forcing them to flee without him. His card, along with Super Impact, was reclaimed by Dewey and given to the D-Team.

Another Altirhinus appeared in Carnival of Chaos in the Alpha Gang's amusement park. However, because it hadn't eaten for so many days, its control device failed and it went berserk. One of the last three dinosaurs left, it was returned to a card after Chomp threw it and knocked off its controller. Its card was retrieved by an Alpha Droid and never seen again.

Mesozoic Meltdown

The tail of an Altirhinus was briefly glimpsed during a panning shot of the Space Pirates' spare dinosaurs in Two Shoguns are Better than One when Dr. Drake was trying to give their Utahraptor its shot, and again when Dr. Z was gawking over all the dinosaurs after boarding the ship in Fate of the Cosmos.

Character Design


Altirhinus appears to have been a peaceful dinosaur, although he can easily get annoyed, such as when he attacked the Alpha Trio when he thought they'd thrown the Alpha Scanner at him. He is apparently very fond of football…somehow, which is why he played with Chomp, although they had just been fighting. He doesn't seem to be an enthusiastic or particularly good fighter, fleeing when Ace and Spiny first appeared, only fighting Chomp when already in a bad mood, and was easily overpowered by Spiny in Tee'd Off without being able to defend himself.

Unlike other dinosaurs, Altirhinus' default personality did not change much when Dr. Z put his card under the Alpha Controller, reverting to his gentle wanderings when Dewey summoned him until he was angered again. However, he acts like a regular Alpha Gang dinosaur when they directly control him, even continuing to use Super Impact despite how dizzy it made him, though he backed away nervously from the giant Seismosaurus summoned against him.
