Earth Barrier TCG Card

  • Attribute: Earth
  • Card Code: DKPR-007
  • Card Rarity: Common
  • Effect:
+800; (Only an Earth Dinosaur can use this Move.)


  • The anime prominently features the first After-effect Moves of each element as the go-to Super Moves for the main dinosaurs. Despite this trend, Earth Barrier, though the first Super Move Tank used, is only ever used once.
  • Artwork from its various arcade cards is also seen on the TCG Move Cards Earth Power, Survival Instinct, Super Earth Barrier, Sacrificial Slam, Mega Crush, and Stone Shield, and an altered version is seen on Bedrock Blaze.
  • In the arcade game, this Move is also used as a "partner effect" in 2-dinosaur tag team battles. If the dinosaur not fighting is an Earth Dinosaur, they will sometimes automatically use Earth Barrier when the fighting dinosaur wins, and the effect will benefit the fighting dinosaur.
