Move CardsEdit

Fire Cannon (first)
Mapusaurus generates a ball of fire in its mouth, then shoots it at its opponent! Despite being in only one episode, this Move was easy enough to use many times.
Heat Eruption (second)
Mapusaurus triggers a volcanic eruption, the volcano shooting out flaming rocks that rain down around its opponent! However, this caused an actual volcano nearby to actually erupt, endangering a nearby village and forcing Shear to recall Mapusaurus and escape herself.
Fire Bomb (second)
With fire trailing from its mouth, Mapusaurus leapt into the air and soared down spinning to bite its opponent and cause a huge fiery explosion! However, it was never used successfully, being countered midair by Chomp's Lightning Spear.

Dinosaur KingEdit

Mapusaurus' card and Move Card were activated in Chinatown in Beast or Famine by Johnny Cook's stove fire when he cracked open his Card Capsule while cooking thinking it was an egg. He destroyed Max favorite eatery, causing Max to send Chomp to attack him, but Chomp was too hungry and got distracted by a crate of cabbages. Ace was then summoned to attack, but he did the same thing as Chomp, going after a rack of meat. When Paris was summoned, Mapusaurus used Fire Cannon, but the attack missed her and burned Chomp and Ace's food, enraging them. The three ran after him, but when they split up and Max tried to attack him, his Move Cards sprung out of his Dino Holder, letting Mapusaurus knock Chomp away. Then Paris used Metal Wing, summoning the three Pteranodon to weaken him, but when Max wanted to use Thunder Bazooka, Rod and Laura appeared, summoning Spiny and Tank to battle him. They were immediately defeated by Chomp's Thunder Bazooka. Chomp then used Lightning Strike to defeat Mapusaurus, allowing Max to claim the cards.

A wild Mapusaurus was brought into the present by the malfunctioning Backlander when Seth used the Copied Stones in Dinosaur War!. It was returned when the time circuits failed following the Black T-Rex's defeat.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

Shear summoned another Mapusaurus in Elements of Surprise to scare away a pair of tree cutters who had disturbed her sleep by cutting down the tree she was sleeping in, where they were mistaken for Lady Tessen and the Bull King from local lore whose statues the falling tree had destroyed. She later summoned it again to force Sanzo Hoshi to help her after capturing him, but it was knocked away when Chomp was summoned to battle it. It fought in its Spectral Armor form against Chomp in his DinoTector form, but when Ace was send to help, it used Heat Eruption, causing the nearby volcano to erupt, flooding the battlefield with lava. Shear recalled it as she escaped for her own safety, but summoned it in its normal form to battle the D-Team again near the base of the volcano, using Fire Bomb. However, Chomp intercepted the attack in midair with Lightning Spear, knocking Mapusaurus down. He then beat it with Gatling Spark, Max reclaiming the card. The villagers then rebuilt the Lady Tessen and Bull King statues, the new models resembling Shear (though her dress is blue) and Mapusaurus.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: ギガノトサウルスににた新しゅの肉食恐竜だ。ナイフのようなするどい歯を持っている。
    • Translate: It is a carnivorous dinosaur similar to Giganotosaurus. It has knife-like teeth.
  • It is the second Gold rarity Fire Dinosaur in the arcade.
  • In the arcade, it has the same base roar as Euoplocephalus and Apatosaurus, though each has a different sound mix.
  • Mapusaurus' arcade card was the 13th exclusive dinosaur in 2009, which was a promo card from the National Museum of Nature and Science's "Dinosaurs of Gondwana" Expo.
  • The first Mapusaurus has the same roar as several of the other large theropods: both Carcharodontosaurus and (Alpha) Acrocanthosaurus, but also Majungasaurus and even Brontikens.
  • It's possible that the first Mapusaurus in the anime is meant to be Gondo from Dainason, as both dinosaurs have a ferocious appetite and eat their food in one bite.
  • In a brief shot of Mapusaurus snapping up Ursula's squid jerky, it is missing its lower teeth.
  • When Shear's Mapusaurus is defeated without armor, it returns to its regular gray, armor-less Dinosaur Card, but when Deinonychus is defeated without armor, it returns to its purple Spectral Armor card.
  • Though it didn't appear in the same country during its two main appearances, it was coincidentally activated in a Chinatown in season 1 before being summoned in the actual China in season 2.
  • Though not seen, the second Mapusaurus' Heat Eruption move card was also somehow reclaimed by the D-Team, because Ursula later used it for Terry.
  • Between its appearances, Mapusaurus used the most different Move Cards out of all non-main or Secret Dinosaurs, with three (Fire Cannon, Heat Eruption, and Fire Bomb). Only the D-Team and Alpha Gang's main dinosaurs and Deinonychus match or exceed this total.
