+400 or +700; If a Paper Dinosaur uses this Move, it gains +700 Power instead of +400.


  • It was one of the first set of 15 Normal Moves released in the arcade game.
  • In the arcade game, a Dinosaur needs 900-1100 Technique to use this Move to full effect, thereby indicating those with 1000-1200 Strength.
  • As seen in the Gallery below, if in the arcade the attacking and target dinosaurs are too disproportionate in size, the attacker may appear to not even be biting onto the target's tail and instead into the empty air above or below it, yet still swing the target successfully. This is the result of there being only one animation cycle for the Move.
  • As with most Move Cards, it would be very difficult for a real dinosaur to execute this attack, the bite strength needed to hold onto another dinosaur's weight being unreasonable save for special cases of for instance large theropods swinging rather small dinosaurs.
  • The artwork on the anime card is a coincidence, as Tank first used it against Utahraptor, the exact species shown. However, most seen Move Cards follow the pattern of featuring the relevant dinosaur and/or its target it is used by/against.
