Dinosaur KingEdit

Before the main events of the series, it was one of the very first dinosaurs summoned and used to battle by Dr. Z, others being TerryAcrocanthosaurus, and Spinosaurus.

His card was, along with his Move Card, activated in Planes, Trains and Dinosaurs during a snowball fight in Russia when his Card Capsule was accidentally thrown into an ice fisherman's hole on a frozen lake. He slept in a train car on the Trans-Siberian Railway that the D-Team was trapped in, once getting lulled back to sleep by Paris' singing. After the train was stopped and he woke up, Chomp, Ace, and Paris were summoned to fight him, but they were interrupted by Terry. He used Volcano Burst against Ampelosaurus, but Ampelosaurus used his tail to trip him, deflecting the attack. He then used Aqua Vortex to defeat Terry, but Chomp weakened him with Electric Charge. Seth then appeared and defeated Ampelosaurus with Tank using Dino Swing, claiming his cards for the Alpha Gang.

Later in Tricks of the Traitor, Rod summoned him to help aid Tank in a fight with the recent traitor Seth's Saurophaganax, using Aqua Vortex, but Saurophaganax defeated them in one hit with Fire Scorcher. After Ursula grabbed his card, along with Tank's, the Alpha Gang fled to the D-Lab, where his card and Move Card were added to the D-Team's collection.

In the finale, Zoe again gave the cards to Rod, who summoned Ampelosaurus to help battle the Black T-Rex, using Aqua Vortex as part of the Super Fusion Move that defeated it after three hits.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

A recolored wild Ampelosaurus also appeared in Alien Parent Trap when the Backlander crashed in the Cretaceous Period. It helped Chomp defeat Terry by ramming him to stop him using Volcano Burst again.

The Space Pirates are shown to have one on their ship in the Ancient Persia Arc. It was likely freed when the Space Pirates were defeated.

Character DesignEdit


Ampelosaurus is a powerful fighter, but also a peaceful dinosaur, as he simply wandered through the city to find a place to sleep. But he can also be easily irritated, like when the D-Team accidentally woke him up, even if he could easily be reassured by Paris singing. Later, when he was woken up by the brakes on the railroad, he tried to flee the D-Team's three main dinosaurs instead of fighting them and only fought back when he was attacked by Terry. He was also smart, hitting Terry to deflect Volcano Burst before the attack could be launched, maybe because he saw he couldn't dodge the Move otherwise.

Later when Rod summoned him in Tricks of the Traitor, he unhesitatingly helped Tank fight Seth's Saurophaganax even though she was the dinosaur who had defeated him in his debut episode. This either shows that due to his peaceful character he had no resentment against those who had inflicted him harm, or was simply willing to follow orders as a controlled dinosaur.
