Dinosaur KingEdit

Before the main events of the series, it was one of the very first dinosaurs summoned and used to battle by Dr. Z, others being TerryAcrocanthosaurus, and Spiny.

His card was, along with his Move Card, activated during a snowball fight in Russia when his Card Capsule was accidentally thrown into an ice fisherman's hole on a frozen lake. He slept in a train car on the Trans-Siberian Railway that the D-Team was trapped in, once getting lulled back to sleep by Paris' singing. After the train was stopped and he woke up, Chomp, Ace, and Paris were summoned to fight him, but they were interrupted by Terry. He used Volcano Burst against Ampelosaurus, but Ampelosaurus used his tail to trip him, deflecting the attack. He then used Aqua Vortex to defeat Terry, but Chomp weakened him with Electric Charge. Seth then appeared and defeated Ampelosaurus with Tank using Dino Swing, claiming his cards.

Later, Rod summoned him to help aid Tank in a fight with Seth's Saurophaganax, using Aqua Vortex, but Saurophaganax defeated them with Fire Scorcher. After the Alpha Gang fled to the D-Team, his card and Move Card were reclaimed by the D-Team.

In Dinosaur War!, Zoe gave the cards to Rod, who summoned Ampelosaurus to help battle the Black Tyrannosaurus, using Aqua Vortex as part of a Fusion Move that defeated it.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

A wild Ampelosaurus also appears in Alien Parent Trap as the D-Team travels into the Cretaceous Period. It helped Chomp defeat Terry by ramming him to stop him using Volcano Burst again.

The Space Pirates are shown to have one on their ship in the Ancient Persia Arc.
