  • Attribute: Grass
  • Owner: Jonathan (no team), Zoe Drake (D-Team)
  • Used By: Paris
  • Debut: Downtown Runaround

  • Effect: Summon three Pteranodon that fly by and slice the opponent with their wings! They are also often used simply for their flying ability, such as to grab objects/people or run interference.
  • Other: It was Paris' second Move Card and the one she most commonly used. It was often used in conjunction with teammates as a prelude to the attack that would defeat a dinosaur, itself only weakening them, thereby accounting for its low defeat rate.

Dinosaur King[]

The Metal Wing Move Card was in the card-folio that Jonathan gave the D-Team in Downtown Runaround, but that the Alpha Gang stole. Zoe got the book back, but the Metal Wing card fell out. After she hid the card book and started battling Terry, Metal Wing landed at her feet, and she used it for Paris to help her and Chomp defeat Terry and win the battle.

It became a go-to attack for Paris during many battles to help weaken opponents, often to defeat Spiny, and once to attack the Alpha Gang directly. The Pteranodon were also used for their flying nature several times, such as helping to guide Reese's out-of-fuel plane to a safe landing in Just Plane Crazy and catching Rex from falling off Niagara Falls in Falls Alarm!. However, when they tried to rescue Iguanodon in Ruff and Ready, Terry defeated them with Tail Smash, and their usage in Dueling Dinos was stopped by Critical Block.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

The Move was used in Ancient Roman Holiday to chase away Gabbro, and helped Max and Jim sneak up to Blackbeard's pirate ship in High Sea Chase. However, its overall use diminished.

The Pteranodon were the only airborne fighters until the Tupuxuara from Green Impulse, used by Foolscap's Shantungosaurus in Four Part Harmony, and were swiftly outmatched by the single pterosaur, returning to their card when Shantungosaurus defeated Paris. Their use as fliers was supplemented with this Tupuxuara after its card was reclaimed.

Metal Wing's only other and final use of the season was in Malice in the Palace when the Pteranodon fought the Space Pirate-controlled Genie, but were knocked away when Genie got angry, and returned to their card when Paris was defeated.


  • Artwork from one of its various arcade cards is seen on the TCG Move Card Nature's Harmony (06 5th).
  • This was the first Grass Move Card released in the game.
  • As can be seen in the Gallery, when Metal Wing is used in the arcade game, more than simply Pteranodon's wing (i.e. its beak) can sometimes be seen clipping into the target dinosaur; this is because only one animation sequence exists for the attack, and not all dinosaur models are the same size and shape to line up properly.
  • According to Rhino or Dino?, Zander "hates [this] attack".
