Attack Burst (Attack Burst アタックバースト) is a Normal Move Card, but is a Lightning Super Move in the TCG. It is not to be confused with the very similar Move, Attack Boost.

Attack Burst TCG card

  • Element: Lightning
  • Card Code: DKTA-058/100
  • Card Rarity: Silver Rare
  • Effect:
+600; If a Spectral Armor Dinosaur uses this Move and you win this battle, your opponent can't attack or Dino Slash any Dinosaurs for the rest of the turn.
If a Spectral Armor Dinosaur uses this Move and you lose this battle, you can return that Spectral Armor Dinosaur to your hand.


  • In the arcade game, "Attack Boost" and "Attack Burst" are different cards, but the only difference is that Attack Burst is a stronger version that only activates after you win against your opponent's critical move.
    • The only true way to tell them apart is by looking at their Japanese names: the last character of "Attack Boost" looks like a curved "7" with a degree sign (°) attached to the top right corner; the third to last character of "Attack Burst" is a long dash (—).
  • While also featuring Attack Boost as a Normal Move, the TCG includes Attack Burst as a Lightning Move, likely due to the fact that when Achelousaurus used it, its effect stressed heavily on the dinosaur's natural Lightning Attribute.
  • Artwork from one of its various arcade cards is also seen on the TCG Move Card Supernova (Geki 1st).
  • In the arcade, this Move can only be used twice for a Dinosaur. This mechanic is similar to other stat buff Moves like Attack Boost, Leaellyn Cure, Defense Boost/Burst, Technique Boost, and Elemental Power.
