Megalosaurus was the first ever dinosaur discovered that was realized to be one. There have been a total of 33 different species of Megalosaurus named, but most are now considered other dinosaurs, as all theropod-like fossil animals used to be named "Megalosaurus something". Because of this, little fossil material of the true animal is actually known, so most of its appearance remains unclear.

Its aggressiveness as a child made it impossible to tame as an adult, so Dr. Z sent him back into a card and stuck him inside a book. Later, Dr. Z finds its card again, and gives it to the Alpha Trio. Ursula accidentally activates it, thanks to the Christmas lights. Like it was as a child, Megalosaurus went on a mad rampage, defeating Ace with Zero G Throw and putting everyone in danger from a meteor shower (that may have been an anime-only ability, or just part of the time-warp Battlefield called on by Megalosaurus's rage). However, Chomp manages to defeat it with Thunder Bazooka, allowing Rex to reclaim it's card.
In Dinosaur War!, Max gives his card to Jonathan to deliver to the others, where Laura summons him to fight against the Black T-Rex, where it attacks with Zero G Throw as part of a Fusion Move that defeated him.
Foolscap uses another Megalosaurus in The No-Fun Shogun to try and scare off the female ninjas, but it ends up fighting against Sheer's Deinonychus. He used Gigantic Fall, but the three Deinonychus dodged it and weaken him with Spinning Attack, quickly defeating him with Crossing Attack. His card was presumably reclaimed by the D-Team.
- Dr. Taylor's arcade card comments:
- Japanese: 世界でさいしょに命名された恐竜だが、いまだになぞが多い恐竜である。
- Translate: It's still a dinosaur with mysteries, though it was the first dinosaur named in the world.
- Along with Cryolophosaurus, Pawpawsaurus, and Brontosaurus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in the Japanese Secret's Egg II arcade card.
- Megalosaurus was the only dinosaur capable of using Element Boosters in Mesozoic Meltdown that didn't (Cryolophosaurus didn't use an Element Booster, either, but Seth had no way of having it use one).
- Along with Deinonychus, Megalosaurus is one of the two Secret Dinosaurs from Season 1 that reappeared in Mesozoic Meltdown.
- Megalosaurus has the same roar in the anime as Gigas's original roar (The Wee Musketeers to Bad Deal). In Dinosaur War!, it had the same roar as the Black T-Rex.
- It is unknown what happened to the second Megalosaurus' card after its defeat, but possibly it was captured by the D-Team, because Foolscap didn't use it again.
- Ironically, despite being one of the first dinosaurs scientifically described, it was the last new dinosaur (not counting the Black Tyrannosaurus) in the anime's first season.
