Dinosaur KingEdit

The two Saurolophus cards were separated when Zander opened their Card Capsule and the wind blew the orange-crested Saurolophus' card away into some plants, activating it. This dinosaur later chases Zander and Reese, who have the green-crested Saurolophus' card. He fought against Terry, but when Chomp saved him, he went after Reese and Zander again. Zander accidentally activated the green crested Saurolophus, and the two shared a brief reunion. Terry tried to attack them but was defeated by Chomp's Lightning Spear. Then Ed summoned Spiny and Tank, and after they defeated Chomp, they attacked the Saurolophus. The orange-crested Saurolophus was defeated by Spiny, the green-crested Saurolophus was defeated by Tank. Max grabbed one card, and Zander gave Reese the other card, saying the two shouldn't be kept separate.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

A wild Saurolophus is attacked by Terry in Alien Parent Trap.

In the finale, they are seen together with Dr. Z and Supersaurus after the defeat of the Space Pirates.


  • Dr. Taylor's arcade comments:
    • Japanese: 大型の草食恐竜だ。鼻のほねがのびてできたトサカが後頭部につき出している。
    • English: A large herbivore with a crest that stretches out behind its head. The crest is an extension of its nasal bones.
    • Taiwanese: 大型的草食恐龍,鼻骨沿生出來的頭冠長在後頭的部分。
  • It is the second gold rarity Grass Dinosaur card in the arcade.
  • Along with Parasaurolophus, Lambeosaurus, Shantungosaurus, Maiasaura, Iguanodon, Tsintaosaurus, Ouranosaurus, Altirhinus, Corythosaurusand Muttaburrasaurus, it is one of the available dinosaurs in Japanese and Taiwanese non-sale Grass' Egg Card.
  • After their simultaneous defeats, the Saurolophus card that lands at Reese's feet is the orange-crested one, but when Zander picks up the card and gives it to her, it is the green-crested Saurolophus card.
  • In reality, fossil records of sexual dimorphism in hadrosaurs like Saurolophus show that males and females differ in body size, and in the shape of their crests.
  • The Saurolophus' roar (or at least the orange-crested one's) is the same as that of many other Grass Dinosaurs: Maiasaura, Iguanodon, Shantungosaurus, and Lanzhousaurus.
