Counter Blitz (Blitz Counter ブリッツカウンター in the Japanese arcade) is a Lightning Move Card. It was only available in the arcade game.


Blitz Counter Card 3

Blitz Counter arcade card (Japanese Kakushin 4th Edition)

It is the After-loss Move for Lightning.

  • Names:
    • Japanese: 閃光落雷 (Flashing Lightning)
    • Taiwanese: 激電反擊 (Sudden Lightning Counterattack)
  • Attribute: Lightning
  • Sign: Rock
  • Usage Condition: You have to lose with any move button after a loss to use this Move.
  • Effect: If you lose, a bolt of lightning will shoot down from the sky and hit your opponent, damaging and stopping them from attacking!



  • Artwork from its various arcade cards is seen on the TCG Move Cards Energizing Spark (Geki 3rd) and Crackling (Kaku 2nd).
  • To signal this Move has become usable, a pair of yellow shockwaves will emit from the dinosaur after it has been knocked to the ground by its loss, and the next turn, it will be surrounded by electrical discharges.
Lightning Strike Card 3

Lightning Strike, not Counter Blitz. Yes, really.

  • The Kakushin 6th Edition Lightning Strike card's artwork looks extremely similar to Counter Blitz (especially the Gekizan 3rd card), which, combined with a lack of statistics shown on that version of the card, could lead to confusion over its identity. Closely examining it's displayed name, however, clears up this confusion.
  • Along with Lightning Ax, this was one of only two Lightning Moves to not appear in the anime.
