  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: とても短い顔をした肉食恐竜だ。目の上に大きな角がある。前足がとても短く後足が長い。
    • English: A carnivore with a short snout, it has horns above its eyes. Its front legs are very short and its back legs are long.
    • Taiwanese: 臉部很短的肉食恐龍,眼上有很大的角,前腳很短,後腳很長。
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: Carnivore with a short snout. It has long horns above its eyes and long hind legs.
  • It was the first Gold rarity Wind Dinosaur card in the arcade.
  • Along with Utahraptor, Ceratosaurus, Allosaurus, Neovenator, Monolophosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Megaraptor, Deltadromeus, Eustreptospondylus, and Sinraptor it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese and Taiwanese non-sale Wind Egg Card.
  • Along with Megaraptor, Amargasaurus, Giganotosaurus, Patagosaurus, and Irritator, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese non-sale South American Egg Card.
  • An illustrated Carnotaurus is seen in Rex's dinosaur book at the beginning of Tanks A Lot!.
  • Similar but less extreme than Chomp, the arcade models for Ace and a generic Carnotaurus differ slightly in color, with Ace being a more purple shade and Carnotaurus being more solidly gray. The DS model for Ace is the same as the generic Carnotaurus.
  • Curiously, the second Japanese strategy guidebook of the DS game defines the generic Carnotaurus as 6-star Rarity, while in the DS game itself it is only 3-star. This may stem from Carnotaurus having higher stats in other media as the "signature dinosaur" of its Element, and being listed first among Wind Dinosaurs in the Dinosaur Encyclopedia, a position even its fellow starter Triceratops doesn't have, as it was always middle-of-the-pack in stats.
