  • In the arcade game, "Defense Boost" and "Defense Burst" are different cards, but the only difference is that Defense Burst is a stronger version that only activates if 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 "Defense Boost" looks like a curved "7" with a degree sign (°) attached to the top right corner; the third to last character of "Defense Burst" is a long dash (—).
  • This Move can only be used twice for a Dinosaur. This mechanic is similar to Attack Boost/Burst, Defense Boost, Leaellyn Cure, Technique Boost, and Elemental Power.
