Metal Wing card

Metal Wing anime card

  • Attribute: Grass
  • Owner: Zoe Drake (D-Team)
  • Used By: Paris
  • First Appearance: Downtown Runaround
  • Used to Defeat: Terry (with Chomp), Spiny
  • Other: It was found by Jonathan and put in his card folio, which fell out when Zoe tripped. She later found it and used it to defeat Terry. It was Paris' second Move Card and the one she most commonly used. It was often a prelude to the attack that would defeat a dinosaur, only weakening it, thereby accounting for its low defeat rate.


Metal Wing TCG Card 1

Metal Wing TCG card (DKCG)

  • Attribute: Grass
  • Sign: Scissors
  • Card Code: DKCG-132/160, DKTA-066/100
  • Card Rarity: Common
  • Effect:
+1000; (Only a Scissors Grass Dinosaur can use this Move.)


The Metal Wing move card was in the card-folio that Jonathan gave the D-Team, but that the Alpha Gang stole. Zoe got the book back, but the Metal Wing card fell out. After she hid the card book and started battling Terry, Metal Wing landed at her feet, and she used it to defeat Terry and win the battle.

It was used numerous times later to defeat Spiny. It also saved Rex from falling down Niagra Falls in Falls Alarm! and helped Max and Jim sneak up to Blackbeard's pirate ship in High Sea Chase. However, when they tried to rescue Iguanodon in Ruff and Ready, Terry defeated them with Tail Smash.

The Pteranodon were the only airborne fighters until the Tupuxuara from Green Impulse.

They were last seen in Malice in the Palace when they attacked Genie, but were knocked away when Genie got angry, and returned to their card when Paris was defeated.


  • Artwork from one of its various arcade cards is seen on the TCG Move Card Nature's Harmony.
  • This was the first Grass Move Card created by Sega.
  • As can be seen in the Gallery, when Metal Wing is used in the arcade game, more than simply Pteranodon's wing (i.e. its beak) can sometimes be seen clipping into the target dinosaur; this is because only one animation sequence exists for the attack, and not all dinosaur models are the same size and shape to line up properly.
  • According to Rhino or Dino?, Zander "hates this attack".
