Mesozoic Meltdown

This form of Mapusaurus was triggered by Shear after Chomp almost knocked it into the volcano. It tussled with him in his DinoTector form, but after Ace was send to attack it, Shear used Heat Eruption, which caused the volcano they were fighting on to erupt. Caught off guard with the unplanned side effect, Shear recalled Mapusaurus as lava began flowing over all ground to stand on and retreated. She would quickly challenge the D-Team again at the base of the volcano, but Mapusaurus wasn't given its Spectral Armor; it was defeated by Chomp and its card claimed by Max.


  • This was by technicality the only Spectral Armor form of a defeated dinosaur to never itself be defeated, being recalled from battle and then not given armor in the fight it was defeated in.
    • Despite its armor not being directly destroyed, it returned to its gray unarmored card after its defeat. Later, however, Deinonychus would be defeated without armor and return to its purple armored card instead.
    • It shares its "never defeated armored form" distinction with Spectral Armor Ankylosaurus, who was also recalled from battle, but was never used again and was therefore truly never defeated.
