This page will be split into Defense Boost and Defense Burst in the near future.

Defense Burst and Defense Boost (Defense Up) are a pair of Normal Move Card. The arcade game has both, but they are almost interchangeable.


Defence Boost Card 1

Defense Boost arcade card (Japanese Gekizan 2nd Edition)

  • Attribute: Normal
  • Sign: Rock
  • Owner: Sheer (Space Pirates)
  • Used By: Gojirasaurus
  • First Appearance: Two Shoguns Are Better Than One
  • Used to Defeat: None
  • Effect: Stop and absorb your opponent's Move Card attack, then form it into a ball, and launch it back at them! In the arcade game, this move only reduces the amount of damage the dinosaur takes from a loss.
  • Other: Sheer used it for her Gojirasaurus to block Chomp's Plasma Anchor.

Defense Boost
+400; If it's your opponent's turn, the Dinosaur that uses this Move gains +700 Power instead of +400.


  • In the arcade game, "Defense Boost" and "Defense Burst" are different cards, but the only difference is that Defense Burst is a stronger version that only activates if you win against your opponent's critical move.
  • The only true way to tell them apart is by looking at their Japanese names: the last character of "Defense Boost" looks like a curved "7" with a degree sign (°) attached to the top right corner; the third to last character of "Defense Burst" is a long dash (—).
  • Artwork from one of Defense Boost's various arcade cards is seen on the TCG Move Card Simulation.
  • This Move can only be used twice for a Dinosaur. This mechanic is similar to Attack Boost, Leaellyn Cure, Technique Boost, and Elemental Power.
