Dinosaur King
Dinosaur King

A recent study claims that Lexovisaurus was based on nondiagnostic remains (not unique enough to be distinguished from relatives), so most later fossils have been reclassified under the name Loricatosaurus, though some scientists disagree with this conclusion.

Lexovisaurus' anime card's front is never seen

Move Cards[]

Sand Trap
Lexovisaurus summoned a pool of quicksand under it's opponent's feet, rendering them unable to escape! It was defeated before the erupting sand mountain part of the Move activated, so it's unclear if this part was meant to be present.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

He was summoned by Shear in Princess of the City to scare away the 40 Thieves bandits while trying to kidnap Zahrah from them. It fought against Chomp, but when Zoe led Zahrah away, Shear gave it its Spectral Armor form to defeat Chomp with a ramming charge, knocking him into a stone wall. It then used Sand Trap to catch Paris, Zoe, and Zahrah. However, Ace used his DinoTector form and defeated Lexovisaurus with Hurricane Beat, destroying its Spectral Armor. Rex presumably reclaiming its card.

Later in Bad Deal, pet-sized Chomp encountered a recolored wild Lexovisaurus in the Jurassic Period.

Character Design[]


Not much is known about the personality of Shear's Lexovisaurus, since it was under the control of the Space Pirates when it fought the D-Team. It showed itself to be an unusually strong dinosaur for its size, easily defeating Chomp in one hit, even if it was partly because it was wearing its Spectral Armor while Chomp had no Element Booster.

The wild Lexovisaurus in Bad Deal was a friendly dinosaur, but not much is known since it only appeared briefly in the episode.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade & anime comments:
    • Original: せなかにとがったほねの板がならんだ草食恐竜で、肩の大きなトゲは1mくらいあった。
    • Translation: A herbivore with sharp-pointed bones on its back. The big bones on its shoulders are 1m long.
  • Along with Stegosaurus, Tuojiangosaurus, Kentrosaurus, Wuerhosaurus, and Dacentrurus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese non-sale Dr. Taylor's Stegosaurs Card.
  • Lexovisaurus was the only dinosaur in the anime defeated by Hurricane Beat that wasn't a Wind Dinosaur.
  • Though other species could have done so, Lexovisaurus is the only TCG dinosaur to have variants capable of benefiting from two different [Time Bonus] Move Cards, Persian and Jurassic.
