Trivia[]

  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: ティラノサウルスをしのぐ大型の肉食恐竜だ。頭だけで180センチくらいあるぞ。
    • English: A huge carnivore, it is bigger than the Tyrannosaurus. Its head alone could be 180cm long.
    • Taiwanese: 超越暴龍的大型肉食恐龍,光是頭部就有180公分。
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: Carnivore larger than the Tyrannosaurus. Its head alone is about 180 cm (6 ft) long.
  • Despite its arcade/DS comments, it is still widely disputed whether Giganotosaurus was larger than Tyrannosaurus, and thus the largest terrestrial carnivore that’s ever lived. The general consensus now is Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus would’ve roughly been around the same size, with Tyrannosaurus slightly outweighing Giganotosaurus in terms of sheer mass.
  • Along with Maiasaura, Triceratops, Suchomimus, Ankylosaurus, and Allosaurus, it is one of the dinosaurs available in the Japanese Triple Slash Card set.
  • Along with Tyrannosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Torvosaurus, Acrocanthosaurus, Tarbosaurus, Gorgosaurus, Daspletosaurus, Alioramus, and Yangchuanosaurus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese and Taiwanese non-sale Fire Egg card.
  • In the arcade game, this is one of the default dinosaurs used in 2-player battles.
