An Element Booster is a device that takes the form of armor on a dinosaur, which boosts its technique, although the D-Team and Alpha Gang are the only ones who actually call them by the name "Element Boosters".
The DinoTector was created by Dr. Z , who used the information gathered from a piece of the Spectral Armor left behind by Torvosaurus. It connects to the Dino Bracer (Dino Holder v.2) or the bottom of the Alpha Scanner when it is being used. Each suit of DinoTector Armor is a unique arrangement of lightly covering metal-crystal blended plates, varying in color and design based on the Element it was designed for. Also, Ultimate Moves can only be used when Element Boosters have been activated.
This form of armor is "anchored" onto the dinosaur by three (in Tank's case, just two) small spheres the color of the dinosaur's Element that are in the armor on the dinosaur's forehead and either their shoulders, sides, or hips (or Tank's tail club).
Its name is a combination of "Dinosaur" and "Protector". The TCG spells it with a lowercase "t" as "Dinotector".
Spectral Armor is used by the Spectral Space Pirates and is activated by placing a grayscale version of the dinosaur card on their unnamed Dino Holder devices. Its appearance is purple armor with hexagon patterns and pentagon-shaped "scales", with glowing pink crystal spikes and flowing red and yellow "veins". All Spectral Armor has a similar appearance but varies in shape and size for the Element and approximate body style of each dinosaur, as well as individual details.
This form of armor is "anchored" onto the dinosaur by three small, flat crystals bearing the Space Pirate's mark. These appear on the dinosaur's forehead and sides. Not only do they facilitate the addition of Spectral Armor, they also seem to control the dinosaur's mind (as seen with Genie).
In the anime, a dinosaur with Spectral Armor will have a card where the typical gray of a Dinosaur Card is replaced with a dark purple. Placing this on the Space Pirate's Dino Holders will drain the card's color and summon the dinosaur. The grayscale card adds the armor (as explained above).
Seth created a new kind of Spectral Armor, but it was too powerful for any regular dinosaur, so he altered Gigas, Armatus, and Maximus, who each have a unique armor design that correlates to its built-in Move Card. Bronto's Spectral Armor also correlates to its built-in Move Card.
This form of armor is "anchored" onto Eocarcharia the same way Spectral Armor is, as it is really a special form of Spectral Armor.
Ultimate Moves are a generic name for any kind of Move Card that can only be used by a dinosaur equipped with Element Boosters, though only the D-Team and Alpha Gang's include the word "Ultimate" in their names. In the arcade, they function as built-in Moves for Armored Dinosaurs that don't count towards the 3-Move Card maximum. A bar along the bottom of the game screen incrementally fills each time you damage your opponent, and armor is applied when the bar is full; the Ultimate Move is used in the next round you win, after which the armor is lost to "recharge" again. Using the Moves in the anime doesn't cause the armor to disappear. Only the D-Team and Alpha Gang Ultimate Moves have cards, while for the Space Pirates they are simply a function of the armor. The TCG only includes the D-Team and Alpha Gang's Ultimate Moves, and treats them as normal Super Moves that give extra Power if a DinoTector dinosaur uses it. There are also six other Super Moves with "Ultimate" in their names that can only be used by level 6 Dinosaurs.
The D-Team and Alpha Gang's Ultimate Moves are Ultimate Thunder, Ultimate Wind, Ultimate Leaf, Ultimate Fire, Ultimate Water, and Ultimate Earth. The Space Pirate's Ultimate Moves are Spectral Lancer, Spectral Stinger, Spectral Punisher, and Spectral Destroy. The name of Eocarcharia's Ultimate Move isn't known by this Wiki.
