Dinosaur King
Dinosaur King

This dinosaur was named before the slightly more well-known "Majungatholus", which later turned out to be the same creature, so the name "Majungasaurus" is used. It is known for being the first dinosaur for which there is evidence of cannibalism.

Move Cards[]

Mayfly (Kagerou)
Majungasaurus races forward at blurring speeds, disappearing and circling his opponent too fast to see, then pummels them by repeatedly ramming into them from all sides! Despite the Move previously being called "Mayfly", it was in this instance called its Japanese name, "Kagerou", though it was mispronounced to sound more like "Kangaroo".

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

Majungasaurus was summoned by Foolscap in Desperately Seeking Spartacus in Ancient Rome to attack the escaping Roman prisoners who were throwing sticks and stones to protect Sophia from him. When the D-Team showed up, summoning their dinos to the battle, it fought in its Spectral Armor form alongside Shunosaurus, at first facing Chomp. It rushed Ace when he tried stopping Shunosaurus from chasing Sophia, but Chomp blocked it. Majungasaurus nearly defeat Ace with Mayfly (in this instance called "Kagerou"), but was defeated by Chomp's new Move Plasma Anchor, destroying its Spectral Armor. Though not shown, its card was likely reclaimed by the D-Team.

Character Design[]


Not much is known about the personality of Majungasaurus, since it was under the control of the Space Pirates when it fought the D-Team. It can keep up with Ace in a fight, but doesn't seems to be as strong, as it weakened Ace a lot but was unable to defeat him despite its Spectral Armor.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: とも食いもしていたと言われている肉食恐竜だ。うでがとても短く、頭に一本の小さい角がある。
    • English: A carnivore said to even practice cannibalism, this dinosaur has extremely short arms and a small horn on its head.
    • Taiwanese: 連同伴都會攻擊的肉食恐龍,手臂很短,頭部長著一根小角。
  • It is the second Silver rarity Wind Dinosaur card in the arcade.
  • Along with Spinosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Deltadromeus, Kentrosaurus, and Ouranosaurus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese non-sale African Egg card.
  • Along with Tyrannosaurus, Prosaurolophus, Tuojiangosaurus, Afrovenator, Diceratops, Albertosaurus, Achelousaurus, Muttaburrasaurus, and Opisthocoelicaudia, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese Red Dinosaurs Egg card.
  • Majungasaurus was the only dinosaur from the Cretaceous that appeared in the Ancient Rome Arc, the others all being from the Jurassic.
  • Majungasaurus has the same anime dub roar as many large non-tyrannosaur theropods (Carcharodontosaurus, (Alpha) Acrocanthosaurus, and the first Mapusaurus), and the large sauropods Supersaurus and Brontikens, easily being the smallest dinosaur to have it.
  • Dinosaur King's Majungasaurus' color scheme resembles the milk snake, a harmless species camouflaged to resemble the venomous coral snake.
  • In 2022 the toy making company Schleich made a Majungasaurus with the same color scheme as the one in Dinosaur King. This may have been where they got the inspiration.
