Dinosaur KingEdit

Pawpawsaurus's Move Card, Tag Team, was found by the Alpha Gang in the Temple of the Moon, who used it against Chomp and Ace to block their attacks. It later tried to stop the temple from collapsing by jamming a lowering rock slab after Zander and Ed remove the crystal skull from its pedestal. However, the Alpha Gang leaves it behind to escape, and it returns to its card when Terry is recalled; the card floats after the Alpha Gang, but is stopped by a rock and reclaimed by Max. It is honored along with Chomp by the temple worshipers as the saviors of their temple and village (its summoning is the only time Chomp uses a Normal Move in the anime).

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

In the finale, Dr. Z rescues one from the Space Pirates' ship and it joins his Dinosaur Kingdom.


  • When Pawpawsaurus battles as a Secret Dinosaur in the arcade game, pink hearts fly around, taking the place of the rainbow aura seen with most other Secret Dinosaurs.
  • There are three different Pawpawsaurus models: the "main" Secret Dinosaur form is dark orange with dark blue on its head and back, and appears to be an adult male; a smaller, lighter orange one is called in for all three Secret Moves, and seems to be an adult female; an even smaller, pink one appears in Pawpaw Rolling and Pawpaw Press, is also the one that appears in Tag Team, and is a juvenile. The three seem to all be a family.
  • Apparently, the Pawpawsaurus in the series is actually a child.
  • When it appears in the TCG as a Secret Dinosaur, the artwork on the cards feature the juvenile Pawpawsaurus that appeared in the Normal Move, not its arcade Secret Dinosaur form.
