Mesozoic Meltdown

Lanzhousaurus was summoned by Shear in The Third Cosmos Stone in a cave to head off the D-Team, who were closing in on the Purple Cosmos Stone. It used Power Drain to suck away a lot of Chomp's energy, being given its Spectral Armor form alongside Gabbro's Carcharodontosaurus when Ace joined the battle, him and Chomp getting their DinoTector forms. Ace used Cyclone from behind to throw it into a wall, and Chomp defeated it with Ultimate Thunder, destroying its Spectral Armor. Its card was probably reclaimed by Max.

Character Design


Not much is known about Lanzhousaurus' personality since it appeared so briefly in the episode and was under Space Pirate control when it fought the D-Team. It was never shown in physical combat other than getting snuck up on, so its fighting prowess is unknown, but choosing a ranged Move to weaken its opponent may indicate it to not be particularly strong.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Original: イグアノドンのなかまで、とても大きい歯を持っている。歯の大きさは長さ14cm、はば7.5cmもあった。
    • Translation: A herbivore related to Iguanodon. It has big teeth which 14 cm in length and 7.5 cm in width.
  • It is the fifth and final Silver rarity Grass Dinosaur card in the arcade.
  • It is one of the most briefly-appearing anime dinosaurs of all, with both dinosaur and card appearing for an approximate total combined 35 seconds onscreen. This is approximately equal with Pachyrhinosaurus and ever so slightly more than Piatnitzkysaurus.
