- Other: It challenged Max and Chomp to a cowboy duel (Deuling Dinos). It was later used by Seth to defeat the Alpha Gang's and D-Team's dinosaurs. Dr. Taylor used it to help defeat the Black Tyrannosaurus . A wild Saurophaganax also appears in Bad Deal, when the D-Team go into the Jurassic Period. In the DS game, Saurophaganax is the last dinosaur that Dr. Z uses when he is fought the first time. It is one of the dinosaurs Eoraptor can transform into.
- Magma Blaster
- Saurophaganax collects fire in its mouth, then shoots it off as a beam. This is Saurophaganax's original move.
- Fire Scorcher (Death Fire)
- A huge fiery meteor is formed, obliterating anything in its path. Saurophaganax was altered to be able to use this move.
- Fusion Bite
- When this Dinosaur uses a Fusion Move and wins the battle, your opponent loses 2 extra Life Points.
- Dark Bite (City Stalker Saurophaganax)
- When this Dinosaur attacks, it gains the ability [Bite: 3] until the end of the battle (When this Dinosaur wins a battle, your opponent loses 3 extra Life Points).
Saurophaganax was activated in Oklahoma, USA. It chased a herd of cattle thinking it was food, defeating Spiny with Magma Blaster when it ran into the Alpha Gang. Saurophaganax rampaged through the town, dueling Max and Chomp until Rod and Laura entered the battle with Terry and Tank, beating it with Volcano Burst.
Seth claimed it and experimented on it, altering it to let it use Fire Scorcher. In Full Scheme Ahead, Seth uses it to defeat the Alpha Gang and subsequently the D-Team when he broke ranks with the Alpha Gang. In the next episode, Saurophaganax is used to defeat the Alpha Gang again. In One Final Move, Chomp and Ace combine their attacks to make a Fusion Move (Thunder Storm Bazooka) which finally defeats Saurophaganax. In Dinosaur War!, Dr.Taylor uses Saurophaganax to help defeat Black Tyrannosaurus.
A wild Saurophaganax is seen in the Jurassic Period in Bad Deal.
After defeating Dr. Z and his Saurophaganax, along with Tyrannosaurus and Mapusaurus, Saurophaganax can be gained by entering a specific code on the Stone Circle.
- Although Saurophaganax was altered to be able to withstand using Fire Scorcher, its appearance didn't change, unlike other altered dinosaurs (the other exception being the 3 Velociraptors that Seth also altered).
- Although early estimates at Saurophaganax's size claimed it to be up to 50 feet long (as portrayed in Dinosaur King), recent estimates have shown it to be closer to 40-43 feet long.
- It is one of the few dinosaurs in the anime to activate or appear in the state or country that its fossils were discovered in.
