Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

In There's No Place Like Rome, Piatnitzkysaurus was summoned by Sheer's Yangchuanosaurus though Venom Fang in the Ancient Roman Colosseum to attack Chomp. He breathed a purple mist, but Chomp dodged it. Chomp then knocked Piatnitzkysaurus away and defeated him with Thunder Bazooka. What happened to its card is unclear, but it may have been reclaimed by Max.

In Bad Deal, a group of wild Piatnitzkysaurus were running from the forest fire that Gigas started with Magma Blaster.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: 肉食恐竜で身軽な体をしている。集団でえものをおそっていたようだ。
    • English: A lightweight, agile carnivore that apparently hunted in groups.
    • Taiwanese: 身輕如燕的肉食恐龍。據說會以群體行動來進行獵食。
  • When released as a Wind Dinosaur, Piatnitzkysaurus was one of the last new dinosaurs to appear in the Japanese arcade game (along with Edmontosaurus, Metriacanthosaurus, Agustinia, and Olorotitan).
  • In the franchise, Piatnitzkysaurus is portrayed with having four digits, but in reality there were only three on each hand.
