- 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.
Gavro first summoned him in Ancient China to attack some villagers when they threw (at Ursula's order) "everything but the kitchen sink!" to save Dr. Z (who was then disguised as Sanzo Hoshi). He fought against Spiny and nearly defeated him, 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. Chomp then used Ultimate Thunder to defeat Achelousaurus, but unforunately Gavro reclaimed his card and escaped with him.
- It was one of the few Space Pirate dinosaurs whose card was reclaimed by the Space Pirates after its defeat, the only others being Deinonychus and their main dinosaurs.
- He was the only one reclaimed after its Spectral Armor was destroyed (Deinonychus had kept its armor when it was first defeated).
- 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).
