Mesozoic Meltdown[]

The card was first used by Foolscap's Shantungosaurus to attack the D-Team's Pteranodon after they rescued Sanzo Hoshi from him. After Paris was defeated by Shantungosaurus, returning to her card along with the Pteranodon, Tupuxuara tried retrieving Sanzo but was knocked away by Chomp. When Shantungosaurus was defeated by Chomp's Plasma Anchor, it returned to its card. The cards were reclaimed by Max.

Later, in Ancient Japan (There's No Business Like Shogun Business), Zoe used the Move for Paris to defeat Foolscap's Tuojiangosaurus, throwing it into the air for Tupuxuara to hit it and destroy its Spectral Armor. It then knocked Foolscap away.

In Ancient Persia (Desert Heat), Paris used the Move again to counter Pachyrhinosaurus's Anhanguera Dive, Tupuxuara chasing and defeating Anhanguera by pushing it down to grind across the ground.

In Renaissance Paris (The Wee Musketeers), the Move summoned seven Tupuxuara to attack Gigas with their spinning column formation as the second part of a 1-2 punch with Ace's Sonic Blast, but the attack was insufficient to defeat him.


  • In the anime, it is usually used like Tupuxuara Dive, where the Tupuxuara just attacks directly. However, the Move is used in a more correct manner (though still including only 1 Tupuxuara) against Tuojiangosaurus with it being thrown up into the attack, and is only truly used correctly against Gigas (but with 7 instead of 8, possibly to simplify the animation). The energy-stealing aspect from its arcade appearance, however, is completely absent in all anime versions.
  • Despite the arcade and anime Green Impulse involving Tupuxuara, the TCG version of the card does not feature Tupuxuara at all despite being an anime screenshot of the Move, likely as Paris and Tupuxuara are never both present in the same single frame in any of its usages.
  • It is one of the few Move Cards of the Space Pirates' that was used by the D-Team/Alpha Gang after reclaiming it from a dinosaur defeat. The other ones were Hurricane Beat (obtained from Shear's Megaraptor), Heat Eruption (obtained from Shear's Mapusaurus), Anhanguera Dive (obtained from Foolscap's Pachyrhinosaurus), and Hydro Cutter (obtained from Genie), though it's not clear if Terry's Magma Blaster was from Torvosaurus or elsewhere.
