Dinosaur King

Although likely incidental, the number of upper jaw teeth in Dinosaur King's Torvosaurus model indicate it to belong to the only species known at the time of the franchise, T. tanneri.

Mesozoic Meltdown

It was first controlled by Gabbro on the Space Pirate Ship to scare the D-Team's kidnapped parents in Alien Parent Trap to get Dr. and Mrs. Ancient to help the Spectral Space Pirates.

In Ancient Roman Holiday, it was used to "say hello" to a group of Roman soldiers attacking Gabbro in Sophia's home village of Trachia, using Magma Blaster and scaring them off. Later, it was summoned against Chomp when Gabbro tried taking Sophia from the D-Team. It activated its Spectral Armor form and used Magma Blaster, Chomp breaking through the fire beam with Thunder Bazooka, but the armor was strong enough to stop his attack. Ace joined the battle, but neither were a match for Torvosaurus. It used Magma Blaster again and nearly defeated them, backing them up to the edge of a cliff, but they used the Fusion Move Thunder Storm Bazooka, destroying its Spectral Armor and defeating it. Its card and Move Card were then reclaimed by Max. A shard of its Spectral Armor was taken by Dr. Z to later create the Element Boosters from.

Character Design


Not much is known about the personality of Torvosaurus, since it was under the control of the Space Pirates when it fought the D-Team. It appears to be a very strong dinosaur since it almost defeated Chomp and Ace, and it required a Fusion Move to break through its Spectral Armor, inspiring Dr. Z to strengthen the D-Team's Move Cards as a countermeasure. Of course, its dominance likely came from its Spectral Armor catching the D-Team unprepared, and later fights against equally strong dinosaurs became easier as they adapted and improved their arsenal.
