Dinosaur King[]

Anchiceratops' card and Move Card were activated in Paris, France, in Fashion Victims by a thunderstorm. After a nap, he wandered into the city and through a horse race, being chased into a truck with model dinosaurs, where he took another nap before wandering into a dinosaur-themed fashion show. He almost went mad from the flashing lights, scaring the crowd away, but a loose pet-sized Chomp got his attention and led him away through the city. They ran into a familiar painter who turned them into "works of art", but Chomp led Anchiceratops away from the loud crowd that quickly gathered. However, loud traffic made him go berserk by the Arc de Triomphe, and when the Alpha Gang sent Tank at him, he forced her to curl in defense before flipping her to bowl down a line of trees. Luckily, Chomp got his attention again and led him and the D-Team to a quiet secluded park near the Eiffel Tower, where Anchiceratops finally calmed down, Zoe realizing he was having the same problem with all the loud modern noises that Ankylosaurus had had. The D-Team dressed as dinosaurs to make it feel more at home, but Spiny attacked, hitting Anchiceratops before he used Death Grind in retaliation. Chomp finished Spiny with Lightning Strike, but Anchiceratops collapsed from exhaustion, Rex claiming his cards. The cards would later have moved into Max's possession, being a Lighting Dinosaur, but was never used again.

In Carnival of Chaos, another Anchiceratops appeared in the Alpha Gang's amusement park, but went berserk like the others after its control device failed due to a lack of food. It was returned to its card after pet-size Chomp removed the device, was reclaimed by an Alpha Droid, and was never seen or mentioned again. A group of possibly animatronic Anchiceratops chibis were also seen in the cave boat ride.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

In The Wee Musketeers, Gabbro summoned another Anchiceratops at Duke Dumas' chateau in 1615 Paris to attack Spiny while he was looking for the Green Cosmos Stone. It managed to fight on par with him until Chomp arrived to help Spiny, knocking Anchiceratops away. After Gigas defeated Spiny, Anchiceratops was given its Spectral Armor form to fight with him against Chomp, Ace, and Paris in their DinoTector forms. Chomp tossed Anchiceratops over to fight a bit with Paris, but it was soon defeated by Chomp's Thunder Driver, destroying its Spectral Armor. Its card was presumably reclaimed by Max.

In an explanation of the Cosmos Stones by Seth in Bad Deal, an Anchiceratops was among a crowd of dinosaurs watching the approaching meteor.

Character Design[]


The first Anchiceratops was usually a meek dinosaur and, like most season 1 Lightning Dinosaurs, he became friends with Chomp. However, when he panicked or was stressed, he fell into a frantic rage in which he caused havoc on the surrounding area. He attacked Tank violently, though this reaction can be justified because she tried to attack him. Despite his attacking strength, however, he collapsed from exhaustion after fighting Spiny, though he had suffered little damage during the fight. Perhaps he was already tired out from the stresses throughout the day, or just had low long-term stamina in general. It may instead simply have been a poorly-planned way to write him returning to his card without the D-Team needing to fight him.

Not much is known about the personality of the second Anchiceratops, as it was under Space Pirate control when it fought the Alpha Gang and D-Team. It was a tough opponent for Spiny, like the first Anchiceratops was, but not overly so, the fight managing to stay balanced, but it was easily overpowered by the D-Team's dinosaurs. It was the third Space Pirate Lightning Dinosaur not given a Move Card, which may have given it a stronger showing.
