Thorn Whip (Thorn Whip ソーンウィップ) is a Grass Move Card. It was only in the arcade game.


Thorn Whip Card 3

Thorn Whip arcade card (Japanese Kakushin 3rd Edition)

It is the second After-effect Move for Grass.

  • Japanese Kanji: 緑振棘鞭 (Green Tremor)
  • Attribute: Grass
  • Sign: Scissors
  • Usage Condition: This Move sometimes activates after an attack when you win with any move button.
  • Effect: After your attack, a thorny vine shoots up out of the ground, whirls around, and smacks your opponent flying for extra damage!


This card was only available in the Japanese version.


  • Artwork from one of its various arcade cards is seen on the TCG Move Card Regenerating Whip (Kaku 2nd).
  • Along with Emerald Garden and Ultimate Leaf, Thorn Whip is one of the just three Grass Moves in Dinosaur King (excluding DS and TCG Moves) that allows the dinosaur performing the Move to directly damage the opponent instead of summoning another dinosaur to help (or healing). Because of that, these are the only three Grass Moves with which a Grass Dinosaur can defeat an opponent directly and not indirectly (unless the anime manufactures a new manner of using the Move as a tag attack).
    • Of these three Moves, Thorn Whip was the only one that didn't appear in the anime.
