Dinosaur King
Dinosaur King

The model is slightly larger than the real Velociraptor, and instead seems to closely resemble the size of Deinonychus, as do most depictions of Velociraptor in media; however, the true size of Velociraptor would likely be too small to engage in its intended battle functions.

Velociraptor anime card (Multiple Move)

  • Attribute: None (Dinosaur) / Normal (Move)
  • Owner: Seth, Rod (Alpha Gang), D-Team (probably)
  • Location: Australia, near Ayer's Rock
  • Debut: Metal Imbalance (as dinosaur)
  • Dinosaurs Defeated: Chomp (with Final Fury)
  • Defeated by: None
  • Other: Seth turned the Velociraptor trio's original Dinosaur Card from a normal rectangular shape into a triangular card that is gray like a Dinosaur Card on the front and yellow-orange like a Move Card on the back (likely including the Velociraptors' original card along with the 2 Normal Moves with Velociraptor in them), also featuring red, blue, and yellow dots corresponding in arrangement to the Rock-Paper-Scissors sign used in the arcade game. There are 3 Velociraptors in the card, and each glows a different color while attacking: yellow, blue, and red (which match up with the colors for Scissors, Paper, and Rock, respectively).

Assist Moves[]

Critical Block
Three Velociraptors leap onto the user's opponent, blocking them from using their Move Cards! The Velociraptor can also beat them to the ground if needed.
Final Fury
Three Velociraptor glow red, yellow, and blue and shoot forward as energy streams, latching onto the user's opponent and swinging them around the air before slamming them into the ground!

In Move Cards[]


Dinosaur King[]

The single card containing the Velociraptor trio was discovered in Australia by Seth in Ruff and Ready after Iguanodon broke open the rock it was embedded within during its rampage; at the time it was a Dinosaur Card with no Element symbol on the back. He took the card with him, hiding its discovery from the Alpha Gang.

In the next episode, he did experiments on them using a lot of electricity, making them evolve into a triangular "Multiple Move" Card. This card was, according to Seth, based on the research that Dr. Z had done so far, and contained 2 Move Cards. He showed up at the iron refinery and used the new card with Terry's Alpha Scanner to help the Alpha Gang, using Critical Block to counter Chomp's attempt to use Lightning Strike. When Terry was nearly beaten by Chomp's Electric Charge, Seth used Final Fury to defeat Chomp.

In the next episode, he gave the card to Rod and Laura when he tasked them with collecting the rest of the Dinosaur Cards. Rod had Terry use Critical Block to counter Ace's Cyclone and Paris' Metal Wing. After Saurophaganax got defeated and claimed by Rod and Laura, they were recalled by Rod. However, their card was never used or seen again, not even to say if it was returned to Seth or not.

They were probably reclaimed by the D-Team between two episodes before Tricks of the Traitor or after the Alpha Gang fled to the D-Lab in Tricks of the Traitor, but it may have taken until Dinosaur War! if the card had been returned to Seth after Dueling Dinos.

Mesozoic Meltdown[]

A Velociraptor trio was briefly seen in Fate of the Cosmos running with a Deinonychus trio in the Backlander's Mesozoic forest projection after Dr. Z rescued the Space Pirates' dinosaurs. Whether they were the original trio or another that the Space Pirates had and never used isn't clear.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: 手足にするどいかぎづめを持つ小型の肉食恐竜だ。小さいがどうもうだったようだ。
    • English: A carnivore with sharp claws on its hands and feet. It was ferocious despite its small size.
  • DS Game Encyclopedia entry: A carnivore that has sharp claws on its hands and feet. Not very big, but ferocious.
  • In the arcade game, there are a trio of pink Velociraptors that appear when Player 2 (right side) uses one of their Moves. However, when one plays the Alpha Exam game mode in the Arcade (via swiping an Alpha Gang member card), Player 1 will have pink Velociraptors, hinting that Alpha Velociraptors may exist.
  • Both the Critical Block and Final Fury arcade cards each have artworks that display the Velociraptor attacking the opponent and standing beside the dinosaur using the Move. The only way to distinguish the two Moves is by comparing the Japanese names: Final Fury has 4 characters in its name; Critical Block has 5 characters in its name, the last of which looks like a backwards capital "J" with a double-quote mark in the top-right gap (this: じ).
  • Though a triangle shape may suggest the card has three abilities, only two Moves are shown to be included, though because the card was originally an ordinary Dinosaur Card, that card may be the third point. If it could be used as a regular Dinosaur Card (as its front is gray) to summon the Velociraptor without needing another dinosaur to "use" them, however, is never addressed.
  • This was the only actual Dinosaur Card in the anime to not have an Element, though other dinosaurs in Normal Moves also lacked "true" Elements.
    • Two more no-Element Dinosaur Cards were briefly seen from behind in Dinosaur War! in Max's Dino Holder, but this was likely an animation error.
    • Since the Velociraptors originally had no Element, it is unknown how, if possible, their card could have been activated if they had appeared as wild dinosaurs. It's also not clear what Move Cards they could have used, although it's possible that they could have only used Normal Moves.
  • The back of the anime's Velociraptor "Multiple Move" card as seen above is what is shown on the "tally screen" at the end of the episode, rendered with CG. The version seen during the actual episode, which was drawn traditionally, is a mirror image, with the white shapes on the opposite sides and the red, yellow, and blue dots going counterclockwise instead of clockwise, correctly like their arcade appearance. The reason for the difference is unknown, and likely by mistake.
  • Although the adult Velociraptor in Dinosaur King only has fur-like feathers on its body, in real life it should have wings and feathers running from the base to the tip of its tail as opposed to the traditional tail fan. The Dainason's chibi version is more accurate (see chibi form in Gallery below).
    • They should also possess non-pronated hands that face each other, unlike the ones shown which are fixed with palms facing the ground.
