      • LV52: Earth Tail, Earth Tackle, Earth Swing; Earth Tail (R)
  • Encyclopedia number: D41
  • Special Acquisition: For its straightforward Mystery Fossil, trade the fossil-loving kid in Euro Town a Magnolia Fossil after starting the Asian Chapter, once his first sidequest is complete. Dinoman's Edmontonia Mystery Fossil is earned after owning 20 different Dinosaurs.
  • Other: It is the only Dinoman Fossil also available by another Mystery Fossil, or in fact two different Mystery Fossils at all. Despite its many varied sources, all Edmontonia are identical. By both its Mystery Fossils from Europe and local Fossils from North America learning Asian Normal Moves, it is both one of the Mystery Fossil Dinosaurs which learns Normal Moves from a different continent than where it’s acquired, and is also one of the few Dinosaurs available by local Fossils to not match its continent's Normal Move list. Its choice of Moves likely reflects the story Chapter when it first becomes available, rather than its in-game or real-world continents of origin, so as not to give the player too much access to North American Normal Moves early, and Dinoman's Fossils have often had oddly assigned Normal Move sets.

It's likely that this herbivore used its large, forward-facing spikes as weapons, ramming them into its enemies.

Caribbean Edmontonia TCG card

  • Element: Earth

  • Power: 1700
  • Level: 4
  • Life: 2
  • Card Code: DKDS-025/100
  • Card Rarity: Common

  • Flavor Text:
The Edmontonia's spikes may have been used for more than just fighting off hungry Albertosaurus or Daspletosaurus. Male Edmontonia probably used them in contests with each other, too.


Mesozoic Meltdown[]

Edmontonia was first summoned by Gabbro in Dinosaurs of the Caribbean to dig a hole looking for the Blue Cosmos Stone (in the wrong spot) and ended up chasing away the nearby British soldiers who were pursuing Jim and his father, but was quickly recalled. Gabbro summoned it again later to attack Max and Rex. It fought Ace in its Spectral Armor form, but started losing to his DinoTector form. When Rex was about to use a Move Card, Gabbro summoned Diceratops in its Spectral Armor form alongside Edmontonia, but then Dr. Z and the Alpha Gang arrived to summon Terry who joined the battle in his DinoTector form to help Ace, knocking Edmontonia away. When the battle broke onto the beach, Edmontonia knocked Ace down and used Rock Roller, but Terry countered the Move with Ultimate Fire, knocking the boulder away and defeating Edmontonia, destroying its Spectral Armor. Its card was presumably reclaimed by Dr. Z or the Alpha Trio shortly thereafter, but the boulder landed at the top of a ledge and then rolled down at the D-Team during the episode's cliffhanger.

Character Design[]


Not much is known about the personality of Edmontonia, since it was under the control of the Space Pirates when it fought the D-Team and the Alpha Gang. It seems to be a good digger, easily making a large hole, but does not seem to be the strongest fighter, though much of its 2-v-2 fight happened offscreen.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: 前につき出した大きなトゲを持つ草食恐竜だ。これをぶきに体当たりをしていたようだ。
    • English: A herbivore with large, forward-facing spikes. It can ram enemies with these spikes.
    • Taiwanese: 在前方有著極大尖刺的草食恐龍,似乎都是以這個做為武器來做衝撞攻擊。
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: A herbivore with forward-pointing spikes, which it uses as ramming weapons.
  • It is the first Bronze rarity Earth Dinosaur card in the arcade.
  • Along with Saichania, Stegosaurus, Ankylosaurus, Kentrosaurus, Wuerhosaurus, Sauropelta, Euoplocephalus, Nodosaurus, Dacentrurus, and Tarchia, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese and Taiwanese non-sale Earth Egg card.
  • Along with Tyrannosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Corythosaurus, Camarasaurus, and Dilophosaurus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese non-sale North American Egg card.
  • Along with Torvosaurus, Baryonyx, Torosaurus, Shantungosaurus, and Ceratosaurus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese non-sale Stalwarts of Bronze card.
  • Edmontonia is the only dinosaur in the anime for whom a colored version of its card is never seen. The only version seen is the grayscale version used to apply its Spectral Armor after it was summoned.
    • It is therefore also the only dinosaur whose card was never seen either activating or being summoned (or at least the scene where it occurred, such as with the first Baryonyx), always entering a scene already summoned, though it was seen returning to its card.
  • Edmontonia and Pawpawsaurus are the only ankylosaurs without tail clubs (nodosaurid or polacanth) that appear in the anime.
  • Edmontonia had the same roar as Fukuisaurus and Jobaria, a curious inter-Element usage.
  • It was the only dinosaur of the Space Pirates who was (likely) reclaimed by the Alpha Gang after its defeat by them (despite being defeated by the Alpha Gang, Jobaria and the second Carcharodontosaurus were reclaimed by the D-Team, though its unknown who reclaimed Gigas in the finale).
  • Other than name, there are no statistical differences between the Edmontonia and Caribbean Edmontonia TCG cards. As the TCG limits a player to 3 copies of any given card, using both of these dinosaurs would allow a player to include up to 6 dinosaurs with this set of statistics (Earth, Scissors, 1700 Power, etc.) in their deck if they wanted to.
