  • Attribute: Wind
  • Owner: Max Taylor (D-Team), Rex Owen (D-Team), Foolscap (Space Pirates)
  • Used By: Allosaurus, Ace, Majungasaurus
  • Debut: A Mesozoic Mess
  • Used to Defeat (Allosaurus): Chomp, Black T. rex (in Super Fusion Move)
  • Used to Defeat (Ace): Terry, Tank
  • Used to Defeat (Majungasaurus): None
  • Effect: Race forward at blurring speeds, disappearing in a burst of wind and circling your opponent too fast to see, then pummel them by rapidly and repeatedly ramming into them from all sides!
  • Other: It was with Allosaurus's Dinosaur Card Capsule and activated with it. Though not defeating Spiny, it dealt most of the damage before the final hit finished him. It was claimed by Rex and later became Ace's third Move Card, but was only used once. It was one of the few Moves that the D-Team's dinosaurs used after acquiring them from wild dinosaurs. A second copy was later used by Foolscap, but was called by a different name (see Trivia).

Anime[]

Dinosaur King[]

In A Mesozoic Mess, it was inside Allosaurus' Card Capsule and was activated with it by the same breeze. It first used the Move to defeat Chomp, then later to weaken Spiny before a final ram defeated him. When Allosaurus used Mayfly against Ace, however, Ace used Ninja Attack to evade the attack and surround to immediately hit and defeat Allosaurus; the cards were claimed by Max.

Rex later had Ace use it against Terry and Tank. In the finale, Rex had Allosaurus use it again in the Super Fusion Move that defeated the Black T. rex after three hits.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

In Desperately Seeking Spartacus, Foolscap had Majungasaurus use a copy of the card against Ace.

Trivia[]

  • When it is used by Allosaurus and Ace, it is called "Mayfly", but when Majungasaurus uses it, it is called "Kagerou", the Japanese name, although Foolscap mispronounces it and says it more like "Kangaroo".
  • Oddly, its only English arcade card is also called "Kagerou" instead of "Mayfly" like the anime dub, but shows "Mayfly" on screen when the Move is used, further convoluting the delineation of its name translations.
  • "Mayfly" is the literal translation of the Japanese word "Kagerou", which refers to a type of insect. A more meaning-derived translation would be "Ephemera", which means "short-lived", like mayflies.
  • An altered version of the artwork from one of its arcade cards is seen on the TCG Move Card Whip Shock (07 4th/4th+).
