+1000; (Only a Paper Lightning Dinosaur can use this Move.)


  • Although the Lightning Spear card was originally in Styracosaurus' Card Capsule with its card, the two cards were separated before Styracosaurus was activated, so it never used it.
  • Artwork from its various arcade cards is also seen on the TCG Move Cards Ultimate Shock Blast (06 6th), Electric Toss (06 5th), and Static Surge (07 1st).
  • Chomp used it against the Black T. rex. However, the Move had no effect and he was thrown off.
  • In the arcade, when Spinosaurus and stegosaurs are struck with this Move, their plates/sail seems to "sink" into the ground when tossed away. This is merely an overlooked animation error, as only one animation sequence exists for the Move and certain dinosaurs may have unique features that don't fit cleanly into the generic motions.
  • In the arcade, one can see that the lightning that covers the opponent when impaled is basically a "second layer" of their exact body shape, just slightly larger.
  • Overheat, a DS Fire Super Move, has an animation that appears to be based on Lightning Spear's, though the foe is impaled on the user’s tail instead.
  • This is the only Move Chomp uses in the anime that, of those whose card images are seen, does not show a Triceratops using it, and instead its original owner, Styracosaurus.
