Dinosaur King
Dinosaur King

Deltadromeus may actually be a junior synonym of the ceratosaur Bahariasaurus, but since there are no known skulls for either animal, this synonymy can neither be confirmed or disproved at this point. In addition, the placement of Deltadromeus has alternately been as a noasaurid ceratosaur, a neovenatorid allosauroid, or a megaraptoran tyrannosauroid, all conclusions being recent and none being definitive.

Dinosaur King[]

Deltadromeus' card was activated by a wind gust in India after the Indian princess Meena dug up his Card Capsule while trying to escape under her palace gate in Battle Royale!; he proceeded to wreck the nearby fountain. He ran around town before he found and jumped into another fountain, wrecking this one, too. Rex concluded him to be looking for rivers like in his natural habitat, realizing he would head for the nearby Ganges. Reaching the river, it jumped in and swam (butterfly style) out to Meena; she first thought that he was after her, but then she realized that he wanted the same thing as her, to swim towards the sunset. However, the Alpha Gang showed up, summoning Spiny to fight against Deltadromeus. He saved Meena from Spiny, knocking him up onto dry land, and though fighting his best, soon found himself being stomped on by Spiny. Chomp was summoned to save him, knocking Spiny away, but Deltadromeus was too weak. He staggered over to Meena, collapsing at her feet and returning to his card. The card was picked up by Meena and later given to Max.

A wild Deltadromeus was brought into the present by the malfunctioning Backlander in Dinosaur War!, but it returned to the Cretaceous when the time circuits failed following the Black T. rex's defeat.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

Another Deltadromeus was briefly seen in Bad Deal in the Spectral Space Pirates' possession during a flashback by Seth when he explained how he met and helped them.

Either the Space Pirates' or the original Deltadromeus was last seen in the final episode, swimming butterfly style in the ocean with Futabasaurus and an Ophthalmosaurus next to the broken Backlander.

Character Design[]


Deltadromeus seems to have a rather peaceful personality, although he carelessly destroyed several fountains looking for an environment wet enough for his tastes. He is very fond of water, and Rex guessed it was because he lived near rivers. He showed a strong protective instinct for Meena and saved her from Spiny less than a minute after meeting her. Despite his bravery, he wasn't a strong fighter, and though he got a few surprise hits against Spiny, he wasn't fit for a full fight and quickly tired out against the giant opponent.
