Dinosaur King
Dinosaur King

Although they are the same species, Chomp, Maximus, and Triceratops all have different pages.

While there used to be many named species of Triceratops, only two (T. horridus and T. prorsus) are today considered valid. Diceratops (now known as "Nedoceratops") is sometimes considered to be the same creature, and Torosaurus had been suggested as representing mature Triceratops, but newer evidence seems to disagree. Both claims are highly controversial.

  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: 頭に3本の角を持った有名な草食恐竜だ。目の上の大きな角は強力なぶきだ。
    • English: A very famous herbivore with three horns. The horns above its eyes make dangerous weapons.
    • Taiwanese: 在頭部有三隻角的著名草食恐龍,眼睛上面的大角是很強的武器。
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: A very famous herbivore with 3 horns. The horns above its eyes are powerful weapons.
  • Along with Styracosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Torosaurus, Chasmosaurus, Eucentrosaurus, Einiosaurus, Arrhinoceratops, and Brachyceratops it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese and Taiwanese non-sale Lightning Egg card.
  • It is the 20th dinosaur available as Fossil Card in the arcade.
  • Text in the background of its Fossil Card also names the Lightning Attribute as "Thunder" instead. Other Fossil cards, like Chasmosaurus, still say "Lightning".
  • According to one of the original Japanese websites, the species is called T. elatus, which is a former species now considered synonymous with T. horridus.
    • However, it is somewhat a hodgepodge of varied features, as the position of the nose horn above the base of the beak instead indicates T. prorsus, while multiple brow horn and frill appearances can be shared between species.
    • Additionally, its Fossil card clearly shows a T. horridus skull, with the nose horn's placement contrasting the in-game model.
  • Although a Super Dinosaur typically has the same Power and twice the Technique of its regular form, the stats of Triceratops and Super Triceratops are seemingly unrelated. On the backs of Super Triceratops arcade cards, there are images of a yellow/orange Triceratops (who isn't Chomp) with the appropriate numbers of points compared to the Super form.
    • This is because Triceratops wasn't one of the original "top level" (2000 Strength) arcade dinosaurs along with the other main dinosaurs' species, that place instead belonging to Styracosaurus, which wasn't given a Super Form.
    • The Super-stat orange Triceratops is also within the arcade game's programming separately without the Super Type, but has no cards to be legitimately accessed.
  • In the arcade game, it is the default dinosaur used if a player did not own/bring their own cards.
  • There was a regular Triceratops card in every Japanese arcade wave from the 1st Edition to the Kakushin 4th Edition, the 22nd wave of 24 total.
  • A herd of wild Triceratops appear in Alien Parent Trap during the Cretaceous Period. Although their colors are dulled and faded, they still don't have the same color scheme as the arcade version of Triceratops.
  • One of Tyrannosaurus' arcade cards (07 2nd/S2 2nd/New 2nd) features a Tyrannosaurus fighting with three Triceratops, a rare feature of other species on a dinosaur card.
