Move Cards[]

Atomic Bomb
Utah jumped into the air, curling into a ball and spinning, before flying down back-first with a glowing Mach cone! The only use of this attack was countered by Ace's Cyclone, so precisely how it would have ended is uncertain, though likely with a massive impact. This usage is nothing like its much simpler portrayal in the arcade game of flipping and stomping down.

Dinosaur King[]

Utahraptor's card was activated with his Move Card by a gust of special effects wind on the set of the Dino Troopers show in A Game Show Showdown, in the same TV studio where the D-Team and Alpha Gang were competing in a trivia game show. He wandered around several other sets, interfering with filming by scaring everyone away, but was intercepted by the Alpha Gang. Ursula sent Tank to battle him, hitting him with her tail club before defeating him with Dino Swing, allowing the Alpha Gang to claim his cards. Zander used the Alpha Controller on his card to take control of him and let them summon him without the Wind Stone. Ursula sent "Utah" after the D-Team, fighting Chomp but being too fast to hit. She had him use Atomic Bomb, but Ace intercepted the attack with Cyclone, disorienting Utah and letting Chomp defeat him with Electric Charge. The cards were reclaimed by Max, but later went to Rex.

Another Utahraptor was part of the Alpha Gang's dinosaur amusement park in Carnival of Chaos. Due to being unfed, its control device stopped working and it got loose like all the other dinosaurs. It was returned to its card by a pet-sized Chomp, Ace, or Paris knocking off its control device and was reclaimed by an Alpha Droid. It was never seen or mentioned before or since.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

Another Utahraptor was seen in Two Shoguns Are Better Than One in Space Pirate possession escaping its cage and running away from getting its shot from Dr. Drake. It ended up pushing him through an air vent, allowing him to accidentally escape the Space Pirate's Ship the first time.

Character Design[]


As a wild dinosaur, Utahraptor seemed to be more passive, simply wandering through the studio without actually attacking anyone despite being feet away multiple times, and was easily defeated by Tank before he could defend himself. When under the control of the Alpha Gang, however, he was forced to be more aggressive and proved a tough opponent against Chomp with his speed and agility. He is not the strongest, however, dealing minimal damage and getting disoriented from an attack collision.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: 手足にするどいかぎづめを持つ肉食恐竜だ。後足のかぎづめは30cmにもおよぶ。
    • English: A carnivore with hooked claws on its hands and feet. The ones on its hind feet are 30cm long.
    • Taiwanese: 在手腳有著極為銳利的勾爪的肉食恐龍,後腳的勾爪長達30公分。
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: A carnivore with sharp claws. Claws[sic, missing "The"] on its hind legs can be as long as 30 cm (12 inches).
  • It is the first Silver rarity Wind Dinosaur card in the arcade.
  • Along with Carnotaurus, Ceratosaurus, Allosaurus, Neovenator, Monolophosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Megaraptor, Deltadromeus, Eustreptospondylus, and Sinraptor, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese and Taiwanese non-sale Wind Egg card.
  • In the arcade game, Utahraptor's screech is an altered version of Spinosaurus's.
  • Utahraptor being thrown by Tank's Dino Swing is featured in the English opening theme sequence.
  • It is the only wild dinosaur to activate with a Move Card (Atomic Bomb) but not use it while it was a wild dinosaur, only after the Alpha Gang gained control of and summoned it. The only similar case was Styracosaurus, whose Move Card was separated before its own card activated.
  • The specific combination of Utahraptor and Atomic Bomb in the anime could be a reference to the atomic bomb testing in Utah in the 1950's.
