Dinosaur King

Due to misdated rock formations, Jobaria was first thought to be an Early Cretaceous sauropod displaying unusually basal features. This has since been shown to be incorrect.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

Jobaria was summoned into the ocean in High Sea Chase by Foolscap to pull Blackbeard's pirate ship out of a storm. After the storm cleared, he was sent to attack the D-Team and Alpha Gang's ship, but Ursula summoned Spiny to battle him. Foolscap activated Jobaria's Spectral Armor form, Spiny taking his DinoTector form. Jobaria used Ocean Panic, summoning five Ophthalmosaurus that attacked Spiny, but they were knocked away by Futaba Super Cannon's Futabasaurus and followed Futaba underwater. Jobaria and Spiny fought evenly, circling each other before Jobaria attacked with Shockwave, which Spiny intercepted with Water Sword, the two attacks canceling. When Futabasaurus lured the Ophthalmosaurus back to the surface, Spiny used Ultimate Water, defeating both Jobaria (destroying his Spectral Armor) and the Ophthalmosaurus. Their cards were then reclaimed by Zoe (Ursula arguing they should be hers for beating them).

Character Design[]

Personality[]

Not much is known about the personality of Jobaria, since he was under the control of Foolscap when he fought the Alpha Gang. Typical of a large sauropod, he is a very strong dinosaur, because he could easily pull Blackbeard's pirate ship out of the storm and also proved to be a powerful opponent for Spiny, but was nevertheless defeated by him, despite his Spectral Armor, though the sheer power of Ultimate Water likely played a role.

Trivia[]

  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Original: どっしりした体と太い首を持ち、スプーン形の歯で植物を食べていた。
    • Translation: A herbivore with spoon-shaped teeth. It has a solid body and thick neck.
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: It has a heavy build and a thick neck. It eats plants with its scoop-like teeth.
  • Jobaria' only arcade card was the 8th exclusive dinosaur card in 2008, a promo card from the Japanese 2008 CoroCoro Comic.
  • Jobaria reuses the same anime dub roar as several other herbivores in season 2, such as Edmontonia and Lexovisaurus.
  • It is one of the dinosaurs that was defeated by the Alpha Gang, but claimed by the D-Team. The other ones were Ceratosaurus, Daspletosaurus, Euoplocephalus, Megaraptor, Anchiceratops, Torosaurus, Saurolophus, Deltadromeus, Iguanodon, Fukuisaurus, and the second Carcharodontosaurus.
  • Jobaria is the only sauropod that Spiny fought that he was able to defeat. Saltasaurus and Spiny were at an even match, but due to Spiny being hungry/tired, he reverted back into a card early. However, Spiny did considerably well against Amargasaurus, tossing it around and managing to do considerable damage to it, but was defeated early due to the D-Team's interference, and otherwise likely could have defeated it.
  • Jobaria was the only new dinosaur from Season 2 that the Alpha Gang fought that did not fight the D-Team as well, as Spiny was the only main dinosaur that could fight it through his ability to swim in the ocean (Gabbro's Carcharodontosaurus also did not fight the D-Team, but that species had already appeared in Season 1, and Gabbro's Edmontonia fought both the D-Team and Alpha Gang. Foolscap's Megalosaurus didn't fight either of them, instead ending up only fighting Shear's Deinonychus).
  • Jobaria's lineage is so poorly known, that its DS game profile lists its family as simply "Jobaria".
