Dinosaur King

Note: Despite initial fossil reconstructions, Megaraptor is not actually a part of the dromaeosaurid family, but is part of a group of theropods called the Megaraptorans. This group has long been assigned to the neovenatorid family of carnosaurs, but new theories place it within the tyrannosauroid superfamily, closely related to the tyrannosaurid family, though megalosauroids and basal coelurosaurs have also been proposed; after the discovery of its relative Gualicho, megaraptorans are seen likeliest as either carnosaurs or coelurosaurs. At present, the clan is removed from any particular theropod group until it can be more definitively classified, though is likeliest to be at least near the tyrannosauroids. The claw shown on its foot has since been discovered to be a thumb claw that was probably used to grasp prey. However, as it was introduced into Dinosaur King in 2007, this is somewhat excusable.

Move Cards[]

Hurricane Beat (second)
Twin tornadoes converge on Megaraptor's opponent, lifting them up into the air; it then jumps up and rapidly kick them in the head, then backflips and smashes them away with its tail! It was only used on a boulder, shattering it.
Ninja Attack (second)
Megaraptor charges at its opponent, creating duplicates of itself to race beside it! Its only use of the attack was intercepted in a head-on collision at this point.

DS Stats[]

Megaraptor Wind A

Megaraptor DS battle intro

  • Elemental Attribute: Wind
  • Critical Move: Paper
  • Rarity: 6 star
  • Battle Type: Counterstrike Type
  • Fossil/Move Set: WiFi connection (North American Normal Moves(?), LV31 Tornado Toss(?))
  • Users:
  • Encyclopedia number: D68
  • Special Acquisition: To have its LV1 card deposited into the D-Site's Dino Room (like the Stone Circle), connect the game to the Nintendo WiFi 50 times through any D-Site's Communication Room, though it does not need to be used for anything once connected (this does not count any connection attempts that fail to find a signal).
  • Other: Due to the ending of the official Nintendo WiFi servers, Megaraptor is no longer obtainable legitimately without cheating or external workarounds (such as use of unofficial Nintendo WiFi servers like Wiimmfi), thereby making Eoraptor Lunensis from Dinoman (which needs all regular Dinosaurs) also unobtainable without them. Unlike the arcade game, Megaraptor uses the animations of a small Wind Dinosaur in the DS game instead of a large one.

Anime[]

Dinosaur King[]

Megaraptor's card was activated at a Japanese airport by a gust of wind in Just Plane Crazy after the Alpha Gang's Nautiloid rocket crashed and gouged up part of the runway, uncovering and opening its Card Capsule. It went inside the airport, scaring people off, but was quickly intercepted by Spiny, being tackled into a terminal waiting area, easily getting pummeled without putting up much of a fight. It was knocked outside as Chomp arrived to fight Spiny, but collapsed and returned to its card. Spiny stepped on the card to keep Max from getting it, but after he was defeated by Seismosaurus, Max grabbed the card.

In Carnival of Chaos, another Megaraptor was at the Alpha Gang's amusement park, but went berserk like the others due to a lack of food making its control device malfunction. It returned to its card when the device was removed by either pet-sized Chomp, Ace, or Paris, which was retrieved by an Alpha Droid and never seen or mentioned again.

A Megaraptor briefly appeared in Max's dream in Metal Imbalance as part of the group of dinosaurs asking for him to "save us".

Later, in Dinosaur War!, Rex summoned the first Megaraptor in the crowd of dinosaurs to fight the Black T. rex, but it was defeated along with Ceratosaurus when they charged it and it kicked them away.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

In Amazing Treasure Race, Shear summoned another Megaraptor named Meg in the Caribbean Islands to attack the D-Team, fiercely fighting and overpowering Ace and Chomp, but she fell with Chomp off a cliff and into the water, being recalled as Shear followed Blackbeard. Meg was summoned again later in her Spectral Armor form to keep the D-Team busy while Shear was looking for the Blue Cosmos Stone. She used Hurricane Beat on a rock to send the fragments to delay Jim, then battled the D-Team's dinos in their DinoTector forms. Meg continued to be a tough opponent, easily knocking away Chomp and Paris. After Shear found the Cosmos Stone, she left, leaving Meg to finish the battle. Meg used Ninja Attack to charge Ace, but he countered with Ultimate Wind, the two attacks colliding head-on; in the aftermath, Meg collapsed defeated, her Spectral Armor shattering. Her card was reclaimed by Max.

Character Design[]

Personality[]

Although Zoe claims that Megaraptor is "a really dangerous dinosaur", at least the first Megaraptor didn't live up to this claim, since it caused more panic than actual danger and was easily defeated by Spiny (infamously a ragdoll) without being able to defend itself. However, it was more aggressive when summoned in Dinosaur War!, but was very reckless, attacking the far larger Black T. rex almost immediately and going down in one hit.

By contrast, Shear's Megaraptor, Meg, was easily able to prove Zoe's point as she was a very aggressive and strong dinosaur: even when Chomp, Ace, and Paris took Meg on together, they could barely keep pace with her, and Ace finally had to use his Ultimate Move to defeat her. However, Meg was under Shear's control, so her high level of aggressiveness, like Genie, may not reflect her true personality.
