Mesozoic Meltdown[]

Anhanguera was summoned in Ancient Persia by Foolscap's Pachyrhinosaurus. It attacked and quickly defeated Ace, but then Zoe used Green Impulse to summon Tupuxuara, which managed to defeat it by dragging it along the ground. The card was reclaimed by (presumably) Zoe.

Later it was shown in the Alpha Gang's possession when Ursula had Spiny use the Move in Renaissance Paris to help save the D-Team after they fell off a collapsing bridge. This time, the Move summoned 2 Anhanguera, who saved Rex and (on the second pass) Max. They then joined the Tupuxuara from Tank's Tupuxuara Dive to chase away Foolscap, happily attacking their former master.


  • It was the first Pterosaur Dive Move in the arcade.
  • The glow around Anhanguera (and its body color) and the sign of the Move Card (Scissors) are both yellow. The other 2 Dive Moves (Tupuxuara Dive and Tapejara Dive) work similarly.
  • When multiple Dive Moves trigger at once, the pterosaurs attack in different manners. When all three trigger, Anhanguera attacks second and flies low along the ground, swooping up and hitting the opponent up onto its hind legs to look to the sky.
    • Unlike the Rush Moves, triggering at once results in sequential instead of concurrent attacks.
  • It is the first Move Card available as a Fossil Card and is the 14th Fossil card in the arcade.
  • The first part of its anime attack seems to reuse Ninja Attack's animation, ironically being used against said Move's main user, Ace.
  • It is one of the few Move Cards of the Space Pirates' that was used by the D-Team/Alpha Gang after reclaiming it from a dinosaur defeat. The other ones were Hurricane Beat (obtained from Shear's Megaraptor), Green Impulse (obtained from Foolscap's Shantungosaurus), Heat Eruption (obtained from Shear's Mapusaurus), and Hydro Cutter (obtained through Genie), though it's not clear if Terry's Magma Blaster was from Torvosaurus or elsewhere.
  • It is the only Move Card in Mesozoic Meltdown whose front image is revealed while not in Space Pirate possession (like Heat Eruption and Hydro Cutter). Thunder Bazooka was seen more clearly than in season 1, but not for the first time.
