Dinosaur KingEdit

Its card was activated by electric sparks on a movie set in Hollywood, where it interrupted filming on several sets. He was followed around by a Hollywood director wanting to make a movie about him. He saw and followed an inaccurately colored animatronic ceratopsid (accidentally controlled by the D-Team's chibi dinosaurs), until running into Helga; she fought with him, but he knocked her away. Rod summoned Terry as revenge, but then Pentaceratops saw the female animatronic, chasing it into a large studio, where it tried to protect her from Terry.

Terry used Tail Smash to weaken Pentaceratops, but Ace was summoned to help him. Unfortunately, he thought that Ace wanted to hurt his love too, and knocked him away. When Terry used Volcano Burst, Ace tried to stop it with Cyclone, but still got knocked back, and the wind accidentally knocked the female animatronic over. Because Pentaceratops thought that she was dead, he flew into a violent rage and knocked Terry through the ceiling (although it's unknown if Terry was actually defeated, Rod and Laura still retreated). But then Chomp was summoned to battle him, tipping the female animatronic back to its feet, making Pentaceratops think that Chomp stole her from him. He then attacked Chomp, but Chomp used Lightning Strike to defeat him. He returned to his card with a tear in his eye, and his card was claimed by Max.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

In There's No Business Like Shogun Business, Gavro summoned another Pentaceratops in its Spectral Armor form alongside Foolscap's Tuojiangosaurus to attack the D-Team. He fought against Chomp, who used his DinoTector form, but was defeated by his Thunder Driver. His card was reclaimed by Max.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: 大きなえりかざりを持つ草食恐竜だ。両方のほっぺたがとがっているので5本角に見える。
    • English: A herbivore with a large neck frill. Its cheek bones spike out, too, so it looks like it has five horns altogether.
    • Taiwanese: 有著巨大領飾的草食恐龍,由於臉頰尖銳,看起來像五隻角一樣。
  • It is the second gold rarity Lightning Dinosaur card in the arcade.
  • Along with Pachyrhinosaurus, Monoclonius, Arrhinoceratops, Brachyceratops and Chasmosaurus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in Japanese non-sale Warriors of Thunder card.
  • He was the only Lightning Dinosaur from Series 1 to fight Chomp of his own accord instead of making friends with him (Styracosaurus was under the Alpha Gang's control when he attacked and fought Chomp).
  • It was the only Lightning dinosaur in season 1 whose card didn't possess a Move card (Styracosaurus's card was separated before he was activated).
  • It was the only dinosaur in the anime to appear (at least as an episodic card dinosaur) in both Series 1 & 2 but never use a Move Card.
  • Pentaceratops had the largest skull of any known land animal at 9.5-10 feet long, beating out the previous record holder, Torosaurus.
