Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

Gojirasaurus was first summoned by Sheer during Two Shoguns Are Better Than One in Ancient Japan to attack Tokugawa and his guards for not having the Cosmos Stone. Gojirasaurus leapt down after the fleeing Tokugawa and found the D-Team, fighting against Chomp and easily knocking him down with his extreme speed and agility. Even when Ace joined the battle, the D-Team were still outpaced, and Sheer giving him his Spectral Armor form only made him even faster, letting him easily down both Chomp and Ace. They then activated their DinoTector forms, Chomp trying to use Plasma Anchor against him, but he countered it with Defense Burst, nearly defeating Chomp with the rebounded attack. However, when Sheer was (probably) about to use the Move again, Ace used Hurricane Beat, the tornadoes grabbing Gojirasaurus before he could evade, and the attack destroyed his Spectral Armor and threw him into Sheer, knocking her into a tree and giving her amnesia. Weary, Gojirasaurus returned to his card, which was reclaimed by Rex.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade & anime comments:
    • Original: とても古い時代の肉食恐竜だ。日本の有名なモンスターから名付けられた。
    • Translation: An earlier carnivore, named after the Japanese famous monster.
  • Gojirasaurus' only arcade card was the 6th exclusive card in 2007, a promo card from the Japanese 2007 CoroCoro Comic.
  • The name given to Gojirasaurus in the Japanese version, Nightmare, is basically a pun for the ideal of Godzilla in films that impact him as the antagonist or deuteragonist.
  • This is the only dinosaur in the anime from the Triassic Period.
  • While not the only Common Rare TCG card to also have a Colossal Rare version, Gojirasaurus is the only Colossal Rare dinosaur (in a normal booster deck) to not have any abilities. The only other Colossal without abilities is Triceratops, which had a Colossal Exclusive Collectors' Tin card.
