Although Spectral Armor Bronto/Brontikens' species is Brontosaurus/Apatosaurus, it is not an altered form of Brontosaurus. It is an armored version created by Seth and programmed into his card.

Apatosaurus (Spectral Armor) card

Spectral Armor Brontikens anime card

  • Species: Apatosaurus
  • Name: Bronto-chan (original Japanese), Brontikens (English dub)
  • Attribute: Secret
  • Owner: Spectre (Spectral Space Pirates)
  • Debut: Coliseum Clash (chibi), The Forestfire Effect (full-size/armored)
  • Dinosaurs Defeated: None
  • Other: Brontikens' Spectral Armor form was the only full-sized form seen in the anime. It can use Spectral Destroy in this form. In the anime, it is a Secret Dinosaur, not a Water Dinosaur (and surprisingly, its card isn't purple like all other dinosaurs with Spectral Armor, but colored with the gray/yellow gradient of a regular Secret Dinosaur).

Move CardsEdit

Spectral Destroy (Jark Destroyer)
Two "arms" extend from the armor on Brontikens's sides and form a near circular arc over his back. Energy is charged up in six colored balls embedded in the "arms", then it is transferred to a large armor spike on Brontikens's neck, and then unleashed in a massive beam that destroys his opponent!

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

Throughout the second season, Brontikens is often seen sitting in his chibi form on Spectre's lap, usually doing little more than being petted or biting at Spectre's fingers and handkerchief. He's the only one who seems to like Spectre's singing.

Spectre first summoned him in The Forestfire Effect in the Stone Age to fight against the D-Team's dinosaurs when he was looking for the Black Cosmos Stone. After the Space Pirates discovered the Stone in a volcano, Brontikens used Spectral Destroy on the volcano; however, it erupted and Spectre was forced to call him back. In Clash for the Cosmos Stones, he became super-charged by the Dark Pterosaur and attacked the D-Team's city. In the finale, he used Spectral Destroy against the D-Team on the Backlander, but the attack was blocked by the Pterosaur. He was defeated when Chomp, Ace, and Paris combined their Ultimate Moves, and his card flew down past the camera, but what happened to it after this is unclear.


  • Embedded in its Spectral Armor are eight small, colored balls, whose colors correspond to the 7 Cosmos Stones (there are two black ones right next to each other at the base of a large armor spike on its neck). The other six are arranged in a circular pattern on the two armor "arms" on its sides, and their colors match the order of the six elements defeating each other (yellow for Lightning, then blue for Water, then red for Fire, then white/light blue for Wind, then green for Grass, then purple for Earth, then back to yellow for Lightning, again).
  • Brontikens was the only Secret Dinosaur in the anime not to use any of its Secret Moves; he did use Spectral Destroy, but that was a built-in ability of his Spectral Armor.
  • It is the only anime main dinosaur not to defeat a dinosaur, but as Rex said, he was one of the strongest dinosaurs in the series.
