Counterattack Recovery (simply Recovery in the English arcade) is a Normal Move Card. This Move is not to be confused with the similar Move Card Light Recovery.



Counterattack Recovery arcade card (Japanese Gekizan 2nd Edition)

  • Attribute: Normal
  • Sign: Paper
  • Usage Condition: You have to get hit by your opponent's critical move to use this Move.
  • Effect: Cryolophosaurus comes and heals you after you get hit with a strong critical move!


  • Unlike Light Recovery, this Move only works if your opponent won with their critical move (the move button corresponding to the Sign of their Dinosaur), but its healing effect is greater.
  • Strangely, "Recovery", this Move's English name, is actually the Japanese name of Cryolophosaurus' other healing Move, Light Recovery.
  • Artwork from its various arcade cards is seen on the TCG Move Cards Battle Recharge, Team Trample, and Glow of Life.
  • Not only does it heal, but it can also cure poison effects (caused by Super Alpha Dinosaurs or Venom Fang).
  • Whenever this Move summons Cryolophosaurus, there seems to be a miscalculation of the walking animation of the dinosaur, making it walk although it stopped moving. This error is also seen with Leaellyn Cure, Haste, and Light Recovery.
    • If used alongside any other Moves summoning dinosaurs in the same place, it will walk through them.
