Earth Barrier TCG Card

Earth Barrier TCG card

  • Element: Earth
  • Icon: (none)
  • Card Code: DKPR-007
  • Card Rarity: Common
  • Image From: 07 1st(+)/S2 1st/New 1st arcade card
  • Other: Despite Nature's Blessing being renamed to "Nature’s Revenge" to justify a healing Move dealing damage, the defensive Earth Barrier from the same side release didn’t get the same treatment.
  • Effect:
+800; (Only an Earth Dinosaur can use this Move.)


  • The anime prominently features the first After-effect Moves of each element as the go-to Super Moves for the main dinosaurs. Despite this trend, Earth Barrier, though the first Super Move Tank used, is only ever used once, and unlike the other 5 it was neither her first Move overall nor the first Earth Move in the series.
  • Despite its defensive nature, its TCG version is an attack out of necessity, as all TCG Moves are attacks. Oddly, the healing Nature's Blessing was renamed into "Nature's Revenge" to satisfy this condition, though Earth Barrier is presented unaltered.
  • Artwork from its various arcade cards is also seen on the TCG Move Cards Earth Power (Geki 1st), Survival Instinct (06 4th), Super Earth Barrier (07 2nd), Sacrificial Slam (06 5th), Mega Crush (06 Winter), and Stone Shield (Geki 3rd), and an altered version is seen on Bedrock Blaze (07 4th/4th+).
  • In the arcade game, this Move is also used as a "partner effect" in 2-dinosaur tag team battles. If the dinosaur not fighting is an Earth Dinosaur, they will sometimes automatically use Earth Barrier when the fighting dinosaur wins, and the effect will benefit the fighting dinosaur.
