Dinosaur King
Dinosaur King

Iguanodon was one of the original three fossil animals classified in Dinosauria, alongside Megalosaurus and Hylaeosaurus. There were up to 21 different species of Iguanodon named, but most are now considered either to be other animals or invalid; its type species was also reassigned from the original, fragmentary "I. anglicus" to the much better known I. bernissartensis. Iguanodon's thumb spike was originally thought to be a nose horn.

Dinosaur King[]

Iguanodon's card was activated by a shrub after its Card Capsule was opened when the Alpha Gang's rocket crashed in Australia by Ayer's Rock in Ruff and Ready. He later wandered past the Alpha Gang again in the desert, leading them to an oasis, where he befriended Ursula, even letting her alone ride him to a nearby village. Though Zander and Ed wanted to catch Iguanodon, their Alpha Scanner was on the fritz from the crash and they couldn't summon dinosaurs to fight him, but the townsfolk welcomed Ursula as a lizard charmer, and she decided to put "Iguano" to work helping them clear giant rocks from a field so it could be planted in, the two quickly becoming town heroes. As night fell, she realized she'd never seen dinosaurs as more than cards, but Iguano had moved her heart, and as Seth arrived, she announced she was staying there with him against Dr. Z's orders. However, Seth's jet flying around him drove Iguanodon onto a rampage, busting up the town (and revealing the Velociraptor card) before Terry was summoned, fighting him to submission with Volcano Burst. Ursula ran to Iguano, Terry charging again only to be knocked aside by the Pteranodon from Metal Wing; Ursula apologized as Iguano returned to his card. After the battle, the Alpha Trio were taken back by Seth, but Ursula couldn't let Dr. Z get Iguano, so she "accidentally" dropped his card, which fell to Max.

Several wild Iguanodon appeared in flashback during Tricks of the Traitor as the Ancients converted dinosaurs into cards (though were erroneously seen alongside otherwise Jurassic dinosaurs). One was among the dinosaurs Dr. Z collected to fight.

A pair of wild Iguanodon were brought into the present in Dinosaur War! by the Backlander's malfunctioning time circuits, but were returned when the circuits failed following the Black T. rex's defeat.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

A recolored wild Iguanodon was among those attacked by Terry during the Cretaceous Period in Alien Parent Trap.

Another Iguanodon was among the spare dinosaurs held by the Spectral Space Pirates on their ship as seen in Two Shoguns are Better than One. In the finale, it was rescued by Dr. Z after the Space Pirates' defeat and taken to join his Dinosaur Kingdom. Dr. Owen is seen riding it with Patrick while pursuing Ursula in the Backlander's Mesozoic forest projection.

When Seth explained the history of the Cosmos Stones in Bad Deal, an Iguanodon was seen watching the approaching meteor.
