Fire Scorcher card

Fire Scorcher anime card

  • Attribute: Fire
  • Owner: Seth (betraying Alpha Gang)
  • Used by: Terry (unsuccessfully), Saurophaganax, Black Tyrannosaurus
  • First Appearance: Full Scheme Ahead
  • Dinosaurs Defeated: Terry, Spiny, Tank, Chomp, Ace, Paris, Ampelosaurus
  • Other: Seth created the Fire Scorcher Move Card in secret and had Terry test it out, but using it drained all of his energy, so Seth altered Saurophaganax to be able to use the Move properly. This Move was strong enough to defeat any normal dinosaurs in only one hit, even from full health. Black T-Rex later used it against the D-Team and Alpha Gang's small army of dinosaurs, but their 14-part Super Fusion Move managed to break through it. What happened to the card after Black T-Rex's defeat is unclear.


Fire Scorcher TCG Card (German)

Fire Scorcher TCG card

  • Attribute: Normal
  • Sign: None
  • Card Code: DKBD-049/100
  • Card Rarity: Gold Rare
  • Effect:
+ 500; Only a [Black Dinosaur] can use this Move.
If the Dinosaur you were battling was level 6 or above, your opponent must choose and discard 2 cards from their hand.


  • Fire Scorcher is one of the only Moves in the anime to drain the energy of the dinosaur using it, and the only one that drains more energy than the dinosaur has, which is why Terry was defeated after he used it and Saurophaganax had to be altered as a countermeasure.
  • It is perhaps by far the strongest Move Card in the anime, defeating three dinosaurs at once from full energy, and was also strong enough to stop the Fusion Move of 14 Dinosaurs for several seconds before being broken through.
  • In the arcade game, you have to win after losing to use this Move. To signal this Move has become usable, a pair of red shockwaves will emit from the dinosaur after it has been knocked to the ground by its loss, and the next turn, a ring of dark purple flames will be circling around its feet.
