Dinosaur King[]

It was in the dinosaur card folio that Jonathan was selling in Downtown Runaround, and Rex briefly summoned him to check if the cards were real. However, the Alpha Gang stole the book and brought the cards to Dr. Z.

In Alpha's Zeta Point, Ceratosaurus' card was accidentally activated by Helga's vacuum, which led to him running across Zeta Point with no means of escape until he was cornered by Terry, Spiny, and Tank, Terry defeating him with Neck Crusher, but the D-Team had arrived and Rex managed to grab the card. After a cliffhanger of their dinosaurs getting defeated and stolen, Rex summoned him to scare off the Alpha Gang and allow the D-Team to escape, but he was captured by Dr. Z again. His card was later again retrieved along with the D-Team's main dinos before they could be put in the Alpha Controller, and he was summoned along with them to even the odds in their battle to escape Zeta Point, where he managed to defeat Styracosaurus without a Move Card. After that, he was recalled and taken back to the D-Lab.

Another Ceratosaurus was seen in Carnival of Chaos in the Alpha Gang's amusement park, but it went berserk due to a lack of food when its control device failed. It was eventually returned to a card by a pet-sized Chomp, Ace, or Paris knocking off its control device and was retrieved by an Alpha Droid.

Tricks of the Traitor shows the first Ceratosaurus in a brief flashback being caught by the Ancients to be converted into a card.

In the season finale, Rex summoned the first Ceratosaurus again to help to fight against the Black T. rex, but he was defeated along with Megaraptor after it kicked them away when they tried rushing it.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

When Seth explained the origin of the Cosmos Stones in Bad Deal, a Ceratosaurus was seen among a crowd of dinosaurs looking up at the approaching meteor.

Character Design[]


Not much is known about Ceratosaurus' personality as he didn't have a full episode of roaming wild, but he appeared to be a more peaceful dinosaur, attempting to escape Terry and the others instead of fighting them back. However, he still gladly attacked the Alpha Trio in retaliation for defeating him when he let loose against them by Rex. He doesn't appear to be a strong fighter, but managed to defeat Styracosaurus without a Move Card (in a shoving match that happened mostly offscreen).

Dinosaur War! showed that Ceratosaurus could act rashly since he and the first Megaraptor attacked the Black T. rex very early in the fight, even though it was much larger and stronger than them and defeated them both in the same hit.
