Move CardsEdit

Tapejara Dive
Tapejara swoops in and hits your opponent!
Tie Breaker
3 Tapejaras let you attack when there is a tie!
Quick Strike
3 Tapejaras confuse your opponent, making them think you are going to use your critical move!


  • There are two body models for Tapejara in Dinosaur King. The Tapejara that appear in the Move Cards Quick Strike and Tie Breaker have been reclassified as Tupandactylus navigans, while the Tapejara that appears in the Move Card Tapejara Dive is the true Tapejara: Tapejara wellnhoferi.
  • Like the other dinosaurs from the arcade's first round of Assist Normal Moves, Velociraptor and Cryolophosaurus, the Tie Breaker/Quick Strike Tapejara have an alternate purple coloration used by Player 2 or for Alpha Fortress story mode battles.
  • In Tapejara Dive, the color of it's sign (Paper) doesn't quite match its own color (black), but that pattern is present in the other two Dive Moves, Tupuxuara Dive and Anhanguera Dive.
  • It and Quetzalcoatlus were the only pterosaurs that did not appear in the anime.
