Some scientists (starting in 2010) consider Torosaurus fossils to simply represent mature Triceratops after their frills had extended, but later research (2011 and 2012) seems to prove otherwise.

It was activated by sparks from a broken lamp after a rhino attacked Ungaro's tent, but the poacher mistook it for a large rhino itself. He fought Spiny with Ace before running off with Chomp, as the two belong to closely related species. He later fought against Terry to defend Chomp while Chomp was in his chibi mode. Paris was then summoned to fight with him against Terry and Spiny. When Terry tried to attack Paris, Torosaurus hit him, but was swung into Chomp. He was nearly beaten by Terry, until Chomp arrived to save him. He combined his Lightning Strike with Chomp's and defeated Terry. Despite that the fact that Terry was defeated, he had managed to weaken Torosaurus, making him revert to his card out of exhaustion. His card, along with his Move Card, was claimed by Max.

Mesozoic MeltdownEdit

A Torosaurus is seen in a glass dome cage on the Space Pirate's ship, and is later rescued (or at least discovered) by Dr. Z.


  • Torosaurus' roar is a combination of Paris' and Chomp's, mixed in with other stock roars.
  • He is the only Lightning Dinosaur in the anime to use a Lightning Move other than Chomp (Styracosaurus's card was separated from Lightning Spear before it was activated, Anchiceratops and others used Normal Moves, and Maximus's Spectral Punisher was an ability of his Spectral Armor without a true Element).
