TCG Stats

Spike Arrows TCG card (DKCG)

  • Attribute: Earth
  • Sign: Paper
  • Card Code: DKCG-127/160, DKTA-063/100
  • Card Rarity: Common
  • Image From (DKCG): 06 6th/S1 5th arcade card
  • Image From (DKTA): 07 2nd/S2 2nd arcade card
  • Effect:
+1000; (Only a Paper Earth Dinosaur can use this Move.)


  • Artwork from one of its various arcade cards is also seen on the TCG Move Card Boulder Blast (07 1st/1st+).
  • In the arcade game, all Earth Dinosaurs shoot out spikes from all over their body, but in the anime, only the ends of the dinosaurs' tails are used.
    • This may be because Stegosaurus, the dinosaur that first used this Move, only had spikes on its tail, and shooting a "spike" attack from its back plates wouldn't have made as much sense.
  • One of Stegosaurus's Spike Arrows hit Helga in the shoulder, but being a robot, she pulled it out like it was nothing.
  • Sometimes, perhaps based on the size of the dinosaurs, it is possible to miss some or all of the arrows in the arcade's animation (see below image).
  • With a total of eight uses (seven by Stegosaurus and one by Tank), Spike Arrows is the most commonly used Earth Move in the anime.
