Altirhinus was activated in Field of Screams in Brazil. It crashed the Olé Cup Parade and began eating from a truck full of watermelons before it had to fight against Ace, but it ran away after Spiny entered the battle. He later fought with Chomp in the soccer stadium, and even played a game of dinosaur soccer with him (which had been set up by the Alpha Gang as part of their plan), but was defeated by Terry, using Neck Crusher, allowing Ursula to claim his card.
In Tee'd Off, Ursula accidentally left Dewey his card when they stole the Super Impact card from the kid but forgot to take back their Alpha Scanner. Dewey then used Altirhinus to scare the other golf competitors so Samantha could win the tournament, and when the Alpha Gang cornered him, he tossed the Alpha Scanner to hit Altirhinus in the head before it bounced back to them, making the dinosaur think that they'd thrown it. It chased after them until Ed summoned Spiny, but then Chomp was summoned to help Altirhinus. Ursula used the Super Impact card and wounded Chomp. The nex attack was also against him Chomp, but instead, Supersaurus slung Altirhinus into Spiny, turning Spiny back into his card. Then Paris was summoned to use Big Foot Assault and call out Seismosaurus. Altirhinus used Super Impact again, but was knocked away by Seismosaurus' tail and hit the Alpha Gang's drilling vehicle, destroying it and defeating him. His card, along with Super Impact, was reclaimed by Dewey and given to the D-Team.
Another Altirhinus appeared in Carnival of Chaos in the Alpha Gang's amusement park. However, because he hadn't eaten for so many days, he went berserk and was defeated by Chomp and was returned to a card after his Control Device was knocked off. His card was retrieved by an Alpha Droid.
- Dr.Taylor's aracde comments:
- Japanese: 鼻が高くもりあがった草食恐竜だ。イグアノドンと考えられていたこともあった。
- English: A herbivore with a high, built-up nose. It was first thought to be an Iguanodon.
- Taiwanese: 鼻子高高隆起的草食恐龍。曾经被認為是禽龍。
- It was the second sliver rarity Grass Dinosaur card in the arcade.
- Along with Saichania, Fukuisaurus, Yangchuanosaurus, Fukuiraptor, Sinraptor and Alioramus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in Japanese Asian Dinosaurs Egg Card.

- When first spotted by the D-Team, it was specifically pointed out that its large nose distinguished if from the similar (and related) Iguanodon.
- Altirhinus has been associated with three sports: the soccer tournament in its debut episode, the golf tournament in its second appearance, and the gag with Seismosaurus hitting it like a baseball at the end of its second appearance.
