Move Cards[]

Mole Attack (both)
Ankylosaurus burrows underground, and a purple glow approaches its opponent along the ground before it bursts up and hits them into the air! The first Ankylosaurus relied on being pushed into the ground by his opponents before activating this Move, presumably to disguise his upcoming attack. Both Ankylosaurus beat Tank with the help of this Move, though the first needed to use extra hits.

Dinosaur King[]

In Dino Snore!, Ankylosaurus' card was activated with its Move Card in a Sanjo City subway when a pile of dirt fell on them. He tried to sleep, but he was disturbed by construction workers and began wandering the tunnels. He found a new place to sleep, but was woken again by the Alpha Gang, racing away and causing trouble in a shopping mall before retreating to the subway again. They caught up and fought him with Tank, using Dino Swing, but Ankylosaurus used Mole Attack to avoid damage and counterattack before hitting her with his tail club and defeating her, leaving again. He tried sleeping again, but the Alpha Gang arrived on a speaker-blasting railway cart and lassoed his tail, the dinosaur dragging them while trying to escape the noise until he reached an outside overpass, flinging them away. Driven mad by the noises of the city, he fought Ace, hitting him with Mole Attack before getting beaten by a throw from Cyclone. His cards were picked up by Max and given to Rex.

Two Ankylosaurus were briefly seen in the Alpha Gang's dinosaur amusement park in Carnival of Chaos. Due to being unfed, their control devices malfunctioned and they got loose like the rest of the dinosaurs, but one was returned to its card by the pet-size Ace knocking the device off, and the other by either Chomp, Ace, or Paris. The cards were quickly retrieved by Alpha Droids. A possibly animatronic Ankylosaurus chibi is also seen in the water tunnel ride.

Another Ankylosaurus briefly appeared in Max's dream at the beginning of Metal Imbalance in the crowd of dinosaurs asking him for help.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

In All for OneFoolscap used another Ankylosaurus to battle Tank when he thought that the Alpha Gang had the Green Cosmos Stone, easily defeating her with Mole Attack after a brief fight. Later, it was summoned again to fight against Ace, proving stronger than him before they were given their Spectral Armor and DinoTector forms. It was still winning with armor, especially when Armatus joined the battle. It switched to fighting DinoTector Paris while Armatus battled Ace and DinoTector Chomp, but after Richelieu told Foolscap where the Cosmos Stone was, he recalled both dinosaurs to avoid a triple hit from Ultimate Thunder, Wind, and Leaf. Ankylosaurus was never directly seen after this, but was presumably freed after the D-Team and Alpha Gang defeated the Space Pirates.

Character Design[]


The first Ankylosaurus had a gentle demeanor unless disturbed, and it was a plot point that he kept getting disturbed, being driven into a mad rampage by incessant noise following him wherever he tried to sleep peacefully. His first instinct was to flee, but when unable to run, he showed himself a strong and clever fighter, able to trick his opponents into helping him secretly trigger Mole Attack.

Not much is known about the second Ankylosaurus' personality, as it was under Space Pirate control when it fought the Alpha Gang and D-Team. Also a strong fighter, it eschewed its counterpart's cleverness and simply attacked directly with Mole Attack. If the dialogue was correct, some of its prowess may have come from wearing the newer, more powerful Spectral Armor past Space Pirate dinosaurs lacked.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: どっしりとした体はよろいにおおわれている。しっぽに強力なハンマーを持つ草食恐竜だ。
    • English: A herbivore with a heavy build and protective armor all over. It also has a club at the end of its tail.
    • Taiwanese: 壯碩的身體被盔甲保護著,在尾部有著很強的榔頭,是草食恐龍。
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: An armor-clad herbivore with a heavy build. It has a club on the end of its tail.
  • Along with Giganotosaurus, Maiasaura, Suchomimus, Triceratops, and Allosaurus, it is one of the dinosaurs available in the Japanese Triple Slash Card set.
  • Along with Saichania, Stegosaurus, Edmontonia, Kentrosaurus, Wuerhosaurus, Sauropelta, Euoplocephalus, Nodosaurus, Dacentrurus, and Tarchia, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese and Taiwanese non-sale Earth Egg Card.
  • The second Ankylosaurus was the only one of the Space Pirates' dinosaurs that was used in battle but whose Spectral Armor wasn't destroyed and that was never defeated by either the D-Team or the Alpha Gang (though Megalosaurus was defeated by Shear's Deinonychus and didn't use Spectral Armor).
