- Achelousaurus got a boost in Power, thew Chomp, struck him with thunder, and hit him twice.
Gavro first summoned him to attack some villagers, when they threw things from the kitchen sink to save Dr. Z (who was Sanzo Hoshi in disguise). He fought against Spiny and nearly defeated him as well, but he was recalled by Gavro before he could finish him off. Later, Achelousaurus fought against Chomp in his Spectral Armor form. He nearly beat him with Attack Burst, but was knocked away by Chomp's tail when he charged him. He then used Ultimate Thunder to defeat Achelousaurus. His card was reclaimed by Gavro.
- Instead of attacking with this Dinosaur, you can choose another Lightning Dinosaur to attack again this turn.
- Super Bolt (Beachcomber Achelousaurus)
- When this Dinosaur uses a Super Move and wins the battle, choose 1 of your opponent's Dinosaurs. It loses all abilities until the end of the turn.
- Team Up: +400 (Barking Achelousaurus)
- You can play this card as a Move that gives +400 Power.
- Spectral Armor (Spectral Armor Achelousaurus)
- You can only Dino Slash this Dinosaur by placing it on top of an Achelousaurus.
- Mega Shock (Spectral Armor Achelousaurus)
- If you Dino Slash this Dinosaur from your hand, you can discard 2 cards. If you do, choose 1 Dinosaur of your opponent's to be sent to the discard pile. Your opponent loses Life Points equal to that Dinosaur's life.
- It was one of the few Space Pirate dinosaurs whose card was reclaimed by the Space Pirates after its defeat.
- Although he was reclaimed by Gavro, he was probably freed in the finale.
- Despite of the fact that Gavro reclaimed his card, he wasn't used again (potentially either because his Spectral Armor was destroyed, or because being defeated showed that he wouldn't be as effective as was needed).
- It is unclear why Gavro would reclaim it's card, when he was defeated (he did not do that, when his other dinosaurs were defeated, although he reclaimed Gigas, but that was a main dinosaur).
- Achelousaurus is the only new dinosaur during the series, whose card wasn't reclaimed by the D-Team or the Alpha Gang (though he was freed in the finale).
