Dinosaur King

The name of this page is descriptive, as the subject has no known official name.

This unnamed, unreleased Move Card featuring Microraptor is included in the programming of the Japanese arcade game, but has no legitimate way of accessing it.

Statistics[]

  • Names: N/A (unreleased)
  • Attribute: Normal (presumably)
  • Sign: (unknown)
  • Compatibility Tabs: (unknown; possibly All)
  • Usage Condition: (unknown)
  • Effect: 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 can be used 3 times maximum in a game.

Availability[]

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.

Trivia[]

  • Instead of being a 3D model like all other Assist Move Card Dinosaurs, the Microraptor is instead simply a flat image moving across the screen, but not existing in the scene itself. This may be an early rendition that was meant to be improved later, but this is unknown.
  • The activation of this Move resets the 10-second timer the player has to choose their Move in, further muddying its possible activation condition.
  • If one lets the timer run out without choosing a move button, the game will treat it like a tie, despite the opponent not being able to attack.
  • This Move's effect is similar to Critical Block/Shockwave (block one move button) and Move Block (block all Move Cards from triggering), but far more extreme, blocking the opponent from making any attack at all.
  • Being programmed into the arcade but without a released card puts it into a similar position as Siamotyrannus, though at least that dinosaur appeared in other media.
  • This Move won't work on Alpha Gang Quiz and 2 Players Modes.
  • The Move may be based on the last episode of the anime when the Pterosaur protected the D-Team and Alpha Gang dinosaurs from the Space Pirates dinosaurs, especially since the Pterosaur looks like a Microraptor.
  • Although this Move practically doesn't allow its user to lose during the round, there are still flaws, for example if the player uses this Move while his opponent has Counter Blitz activated, the player will still take the hit if he chose a Move.
