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 later 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.
- Megalosaurus was the only dinosaur capable of using Element Boosters in Mesozoic Meltdown that didn't (Cryolophosaurus didn't use Element Boosters, either, but Seth had no way of having it use them).
- 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).
- 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 used it again.
- In Dinosaur War, it has the same roar as the Black T-Rex
