There are only four cards exclusive to the Starter Set (Tyrannosaurus, Styracosaurus, Volcano Burst, and Electric Charge), as the rest are also available with the same artwork in the Base Set, though not all at the same rarity. (Not all images reflect the foil rarities of the cards in the deck.)


  • This is the only release to include the "Oversized Exclusive" rarity of cards, which are merely physically larger Common cards, about size-and-a-half as wide and tall. It is suggested to place them beside the game mat instead of on the Character Card space when using them to play.
    • Each Starter Set comes with only one of the Oversized character cards.
