Dinosaur King[]

Baryonyx's card was activated at Niagara Falls after its Card Capsule fell over the falls in Falls Alarm!. It attacked the submarine/torpedo of the Alpha Gang, probably thinking it was a fish. When their makeshift debris raft was crushed by the falls, it attacked them again, but Zander summoned Spiny to fight it off. It mistook the large fish decoration on the tourist ferry as a real one and attacked the boat, but it was knocked off by Spiny, and damaged the ferry's rudder as it swam away.

When it tried to attack the boat for a second time, it was pulled away by Ace, but it turned and bit Ace by the neck. Chomp tried to save him, but Spiny knocked him away. After dragging Ace out of the water, Paris eventually ran up and freed him, so Baryonyx jumped back into the water to escape. However, Ace used Cyclone to suck up water into his Hurricane attack, making a water funnel that pulled Baryonyx right out of the water and into the air, allowing Chomp to defeat it with Lightning Spear. Its card was picked out of water by Max with an extendable grabber.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

Gabbro summoned another Baryonyx in Ancient Japan (Dinosaurs, Ninjas and Bears! Oh My!) to fight against Ace, throwing him around with Aqua Whip, but it was knocked away by Chomp. It fought in its Spectral Armor form against Chomp, Ace, and Paris in their DinoTector forms, but was defeated by Chomp's Thunder Driver, destroying its Spectral Armor. Its card was reclaimed by Max.

In Bad Deal, a Baryonyx was in a hypothetical scene among the group of dinosaurs watching the approaching meteor when Seth explained the Cosmos Stones' origin.

Character Design[]


Typical of a large carnivore, the first Baryonyx was an aggressive dinosaur, even if it was mainly driven by simple hunger, thinking that the large fish decoration and the submarine of the Alpha Gang wear real fish and trying to eat them. It did not seem to be an avid fighter in general as it tried to flee from Spiny instead of fighting him, and even when fighting Ace it tried to flee immediately when Paris pushed it away from him.

Not much is known about the personality of the second Baryonyx as it was under the control of the Space Pirates when it fought the D-Team. Gabbro only activated its Spectral Armor when Chomp and Paris came to help, which suggests that Baryonyx might have been strong enough to defeat Ace without help (or at least Gabbro thought so).
