Earth Move Card back

Spike Arrows' anime card's front is never seen

  • Attribute: Earth
  • Owner: Helga (Alpha Gang), Seth (temporarily, never used), Zoe Drake (D-Team) (briefly), Laura (Alpha Gang), Ed (Alpha Gang)
  • Used by: Stegosaurus, Tank
  • First Appearance: Mythical Mix-Up
  • Used to defeat: Terry, Black T-Rex (part of Fusion Move)
  • Effect: A surge of energy runs down your back and spikes shoot off from your tail!
  • Other: It was inside Stegosaurus' Dinosaur Card Capsule and was activated by the same dirt it was. It and Stegosaurus were claimed by Helga, who gave the cards to Rod and Laura who later gave them to Seth. In Tricks of the Traitor, the card was reclaimed by the D-Team, and later given to Laura, who used it for Stegosaurus in the Super Fusion Move against the Black T-Rex. Ed later had Tank use it in a Fusion Move against the Dark Pterosaur, though whether it was the same card that Stegosaurus had or a new copy is unknown.


Spike Arrows

Spike Arrows TCG card (DKCG)

  • Attribute: Earth
  • Sign: Paper
  • Card Code: DKCG-127/160, DKTA-063/100
  • Card Rarity: Common
  • Effect:
+1000; (Only a Paper Earth Dinosaur can use this Move.)


  • Artwork from one of its various arcade cards is also seen on the TCG Move Card Boulder Blast.
  • In the arcade game, all Earth Dinosaurs shoot out spikes from all over their body, but in the anime, only the ends of the dinosaurs' tails are used.
    • This may be because Stegosaurus, the dinosaur that first used this Move, only had spikes on its tail, and shooting a "spike" attack from its back plates wouldn't have made as much sense.
  • One of Stegosaurus's Spike Arrows hit Helga in the shoulder, but being a robot, she pulled it out like it was nothing.
  • Sometimes, perhaps based on the size of the dinosaurs, it is possible to miss some or all of the arrows in the arcade's animation (see below image).
