Spiny (スピノ Spino) was the Alpha Gang's second dinosaur, and was the first wild dinosaur to become a main dinosaur.

Character DesignEdit


Both the names Spiny and Spino in their respective dubs are an allusion to the genus name Spinosaurus. Spino being the prefix for the dinosaur's name and Spiny being the word's translated meaning.

Personality Edit

He seems to be unclose to Zander since there is not a lot of scenes depicting him and Zander.He has a rivalry with Paris and later on Ace.While he is the weakest of the alpha gang whe it comes to defence,he seems to have some the best move cards of the team.

Move CardsEdit

Cancel your opponent's Move Card and attack at the same time. It is first seen in Tanks a Lot!, used against Paris.
Tail Smash
Smack your opponent with your tail twice, then throw them back with a final swing. However, agile dinosaurs can dodge it, as Ace did in Field of Screams.
Shockwave/Volcano Burst fusion
A fusion move that appeared once in the show when Spiny and Terry combined Shockwave and Volcano burst to shoot a target
Water Sword
Use a giant sword of water to attack your opponent. Spiny used it but it was countered by Jobaria's Shockwave.
Futaba Super Cannon
Futabasaurus hits your opponent with a high-powered blast of water. This Move was first used to fight of the D-Team, but Futaba turned on the Alpha Gang. Later, Ursula used it to fight Jobaria and Ophthalmosaurus.
Ultimate Water
Spiny charges at the opponent after being launched by a wave. Spiny first used it against Jobaria.
Anhanguera Dive
An Anhanguera dives at at your opponent. This was only used to save the D-Team after falling of a bridge and to chase Foolscap away.
Hydro Cutter
A beam of water slices through your opponent. This was obtained after Genie' defeat, and only used as part of the Fusion Move to attack the Dark Pterosaur.

Dinosaur KingEdit

He was captured by the Alpha Gang and named Spiny in Battle at the Pyramids. He is also the largest unaltered main dinosaur after Brontikens.

He is the second-most common used of the Alpha Gang's dinosaurs after Terry, being part of almost every 2-dinosaur team the Alpha Gang summons, but seems to lose as if not more often than he wins (one of his few easy victories was against Deltadromeus). In Bungle in the Jungle, Spiny becomes weak when he didn't eat breakfast, allowing him to be defeated by Saltasaurus.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

He first used DinoTector armor in High Sea Chase, defeating the larger Jobaria. After this 'heroic stand', however, the Alpha Gang's involvement in dino battles decreases, as does their effectiveness in them, and Spiny loses most of his subsequent battles.

In the final battle of Fate of the Cosmos, he helps break into the Dark Pterosaur, but is quickly defeated by Armatus.

DS GameEdit


  • Despite being the tallest dinosaur of the six main dinosaurs, he shows to be one of the weakest, especially with his battles with Ace or wind dinosaurs,though he can be dangerous at times.
  • Spiny was the first spinosaurid to appear in the anime, and the first of two wild dinosaurs to become main dinosaurs, the other being Tank.
  • The battle between Terry and Spiny was probably based off the battle between Spinosaurus and Tyrannosaurus in Jurassic Park III although this time, the Tyrannosaurus was the victor.
  • In the English anime, most of Spiny's sounds are taken from grizzly bears, though the Spinosaurus arcade roar can be heard at the tail end of some of his roars. In the Japanese version, Spiny's roars are reused for other dinosaurs such as Acrocanthosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, and Tyrannosaurus.
  • Spiny is the only main dinosaur to be activated where his species was found, in his case in Egypt (Paris' card was found in Canada, where Parasaurolophus fossils have been found, but it wasn't activated until later).
  • Spiny, like other Alpha Gang dinosaurs, usually charges straight at his opponent and attempt to attack it, even when he certainly will fail i.e. when he charges Gigas while the latter is using Spectral Lancer and gets slammed into a castle. This is common to show that Spiny and co. are poor in combat stragety unless given command.
  • Spiny hardly defeated dinosaurs around his height.
  • A running gag went on during the first season shows that when he is fling into the air,he would usually end up landing on the alpha gang,crushing them flat.
  • He is quiet important to the team as he is the only dinosaur who is capable of swimming in deep waters such as oceans with ease and is the strongest out of the six main dinosaurs in this kind of habitat.
