Dino Illusion arcade card (Japanese Kakushin 3rd Edition)

It is the After-loss Move for Wind.

  • Names:
    • Japanese Kanji: 恐竜幻影 (Dinosaur Illusion)
    • Taiwanese: 迪諾幻術 (Dino Illusion)
  • Attribute: Wind
  • Sign: Rock
  • Usage Condition: Sometimes when you lose, a pair of white shockwaves show that this Move has been primed. It will activate if you lose the next round, when several small tornadoes are circling your dinosaur.
  • Effect: If you lose, then after your opponent attacks and hits you, a puff of smoke will reveal that they had only attacked a tree stump, sparing you from damage!


DS Stats[]

  • Elemental Attribute: Wind
  • Move Slot: Rock
  • Learned by: Rock Asia level 45, TBD other
  • Color Box: Blue ring
  • MP cost: 9
  • Power/Ability: x1.8 damage; ?% to avoid taking damage from foe's attacks for the next 3 turns.
  • Effect: Upon winning with the default Rock attack, you roar, then fade behind a cloud of dust. If you lose, the foe prepares to attack, but you vanish behind a dust cloud again, avoiding damage.
  • Other: Dino Illusion appears to be a stronger version of the similar DS-only Move, Doppelganger, which has a lower MP cost, lower Attack rise, and lower chance to trigger.


  • In the arcade, it appears that no matter what Sign the opponent wins with, they will always hit your dinosaur with Rock's tail swing attack if you are using Dino Illusion, as it's the one that leaves your dinosaur the most in-frame for the Move's effect to be visible.
  • In the arcade, if a dinosaur uses one of the three Kakutoroid Move Cards, Soft Beam, Pounding! ACT Darts!, or Alpha Dice against an opposing dinosaur with Dino Illusion activated, the opposing dinosaur takes the hit but Dino Illusion remains activated after that.
