Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

Maximus was a Triceratops altered by Seth to withstand being equipped with his new stronger version of Spectral Armor, which is permanently affixed to him. He first appeared in The Haunted Hunt, when Sheer was looking for the Green Cosmos Stone. He fought against Paris, but was knocked away when Terry joined the battle. Maximus defeated Terry with Spectral Punisher and nearly defeated Paris as well, but when she ate the Green Cosmos Stone, she gained immense power and knocked him into a wall. She defeated him with Ultimate Leaf, but Sheer reclaimed his card, and later that same episode, he attacked the D-Team and Alpha Gang, but Jonathan rescued them.

He reappeared to fight Paris again in The Forestfire Effect, using Spectral Punisher and missing her, but was recalled after the volcano was caused to erupt by Brontikens. In The Search for the Last Cosmos Stone, he fought against Cryolophosaurus, but was frozen in place by Blizzard Smash.

In Clash for the Cosmos Stones, he defeated Terry and Paris with Spectral Punisher and was supercharged by the Dark Pterosaur. In the finale episode he used Spectral Punisher to defeat Tank who blocked for Terry, but was defeated by the combined power of Chomp's Lightning Strike, Ace's Sonic Blast and Paris's Emerald Garden. What happened to his card after that is unclear.


  • Sheer's arcade comments:
    • Original: トリケラトプスにジャークアーマーつけちゃったかもね。ちょっと強過ぎちゃう...かもね。
    • Translation: I have turned on Spectral Armor on this Triceratops. It is a bit too strong. . . maybe.
  • Maximus's name likely came from the now-invalid Triceratops species, "T. maximus". This is also Max's full name, for potentially similar reasons.
  • In the anime, Maximus has a shortened version of the roar shared by most Lightning Dinosaurs: Chomp, the first Anchiceratops, Torosaurus, Diceratops, Achelousaurus, and the second Pentaceratops.
