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. The claw shown on its foot has since been discovered to be a thumb claw that was probably used to grasp prey.

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.

Dinosaur King

Megaraptor's card was activated at a Japanese airport in 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 and 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, Sheer 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 Sheer followed Blackbeard. Meg was summoned again later in her Spectral Armor form to keep the D-Team busy while Sheer 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 Sheer 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.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: 後足の大きなかぎづめは35cmにもおよび、どうもうな肉食恐竜だったと考えられる。
    • English: This carnivore said to be extremely vicious. The claws on its hind legs are over 35cm long.
    • Taiwanese: 後腳的大爪長達35公分,被認為是兇猛的肉食恐龍。
  • It is the second Gold rarity Wind Dinosaur card in the arcade.
  • Along with Carnotaurus, Utahraptor, Ceratosaurus, Allosaurus, Neovenator, Monolophosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Deltadromeus, Eustreptospondylus, and Sinraptor, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese and Taiwanese non-sale Wind Egg card.
  • Along with Carnotaurus, Amargasaurus, Patagosaurus, Giganotosaurus, and Irritator, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese non-sale South American Egg card.
  • Along with Isisaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Anchiceratops, Anatotitan, Suchomimus, Chasmosaurus, Dacentrurus, Fukuisaurus, and Liliensternus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese Green Dinosaurs Egg card.
  • In the earlier Japanese arcade gameplay, Megaraptor's scale was set as a small-sized Wind Dinosaur, while in English and Taiwanese it was set as large-sized.
  • Despite Zoe claiming that it was a really dangerous dinosaur, the first Megaraptor wasn't shown to be all that aggressive before it was easily defeated by Spiny, though it didn't have much of a chance to fight back. In fact, Spiny's tendency to lose to feisty small dinosaurs compounds the case for its relative harmlessness.
    • Sheer's Megaraptor, however, proves Zoe's point easily.
  • It is one of the dinosaurs in Season 1 that was defeated by the Alpha Gang, but claimed by the D-Team. The other ones were Ceratosaurus, Daspletosaurus, Euoplocephalus, Anchiceratops, Torosaurus, Saurolophus, Deltadromeus, Iguanodon and Fukuisaurus.
  • Though Sheer's Megaraptor was never specifically identified as being female, being given the name "Meg" suggests it to be likely. If true, she would be the only known female Space Pirate-controlled dinosaur (in the dub, at least), aside perhaps from some of the Deinonychus trio.
  • Though not seen, the second Megaraptor's Hurricane Beat was also reclaimed by the D-Team, since Ace used it later.
  • Due to the shutdown of the Nintendo WiFi Connection in 2014, Megaraptor is no longer obtainable in the DS game without Action Replay or by connecting to an alternative network.
