  • Name: Fire Scorcher (English) / Death Fire (Japanese)
  • Attribute: Fire
  • Owner: Seth (betraying Alpha Gang)
  • Used by: Terry (unsuccessfully), Saurophaganax, Black T. rex
  • First Appearance: Full Scheme Ahead
  • Used to Defeat (Terry): himself (by exhaustion from using the Move)
  • Used to Defeat (Saurophaganax): Spiny, Tank (x2), Chomp, Ace, Paris, Ampelosaurus, Terry
  • Used to Defeat (Black T. rex): None
  • Effect: Generate a giant fireball in your mouth and send it to scorch your opponent in a massive inferno! Ordinary dinosaurs will have their energy drained away by using this Move.
  • Other: Seth created the Fire Scorcher Move Card in secret and had Terry test it out, becoming his 7th Move, but using it drained all of his energy, so Seth altered Saurophaganax to be able to use the Move properly. This Move was strong enough to defeat any normal dinosaurs in only one hit, even several at once from full health. Black T. rex later used it against the D-Team and Alpha Gang's small army of dinosaurs, but their 14-part Super Fusion Move managed to break through it. What happened to the card after Black T. rex's defeat is unclear.

+500; Only a [Black Dinosaur] can use this Move.
If the Dinosaur you were battling was level 6 or above, your opponent must choose and discard 2 cards from their hand.


  • Fire Scorcher is one of the only Moves in the anime to drain the energy of the dinosaur using it, and the only one that drains more energy than the dinosaur has, which is why Terry was defeated after he used it and Saurophaganax had to be altered as a countermeasure.
  • It is perhaps by far the strongest Move Card in the anime, defeating three dinosaurs at once from full energy, and was also strong enough to stop the Fusion Move of 14 Dinosaurs for several seconds before being broken through.
  • In the arcade game, you have to win after losing to use this Move. To signal this Move has become usable, a pair of red shockwaves will emit from the dinosaur after it has been knocked to the ground by its loss, and the next turn, a ring of dark purple flames will be circling around its feet.
  • In the arcade, Black Tyrannosaurus' unique Death Type gives it the ability to use this Move at low health even if it isn't equipped as a card.
