Dinosaur King Statistics[]

Arcade Stats[]

  • Attribute: Normal (presumably)
  • Assist Moves:
    • Microraptor Move Card: A glowing golden Microraptor silhouette flies across the screen and breaks all of your opponent's move buttons, removing their ability to attack this turn! This Move was never released as a card, so no artwork exists, though its animation and function were programmed into at least (and likely only) Japanese arcade machines.

Anime Stats[]


Microraptor in the anime


Microraptor chibi

Microraptor chibi

  • Name: Gaffer Miku [Kanji: ミクじいさん]
  • Other: The Microraptor is the elder of Dino Village and is the leader.


  • The Pterosaur and Dark Pterosaur appear to use greatly enlarged versions of the Microraptor character model as their basis.
  • Microraptor, the Dainason Ammonite, and the anime's Woolly Mammoth are the only prehistoric creatures (and Microraptor the only dinosaur) featured in some form of Dinosaur King without any connection to a Dinosaur or Move card, having no role in the arcade game nor TCG, which is why most of its statistics in Dinosaur King don't exist. However, it would most likely be a Wind Dinosaur owing to its position as a small coelurosaur.
  • Studies in 2012 showed that Microraptor is iridescent black, like a crow or blackbird. Its color in the anime is the complete opposite, being fluffy white, though this is purely coincidental as the anime was made several years before the finding.
  • There is video of an unreleased Move Card in the Japanese arcade game which shows a golden glowing bird-like figure flying across the screen which vaguely resembles Microraptor, especially with its trailing tail strands. Whether this was intended to actually be Microraptor's eventual gameplay role is unknown, though is assumed so for now.
