Top 10 Best Yugioh Dinosaur Type Monsters

Just me who was buzzing when dinosaurs got a new structure deck?

They’re one of the coolest types you can find in Yugioh, yet they’ve barely received any support over the years. We’ve seen the likes of Evolsaur and Jurrac but dinosaurs are still extremely lacking. The recent structure deck did give them a nice boost though, there’s a much larger pool of awesome dinosaurs than there was before.

Dinosaurs are now fairly viable, at least in the casual scene. So if you’re thinking of making a dino deck, you’ll want to see this list of the best dinosaur type monsters in Yugioh!

Note: This list does not contain archetypes.


10. Hyper Hammerhead

What a classic card, Hyper Hammerhead has been frustrating opponents for many a year. While its usefulness has decreased over time, it’s still a formidable monster that can seriously halt your opponent’s strategies. Most effective in a stall or beat-down deck, it’s one of those monsters that make your opponent go red-faced when it hits the field.

9. Number 61: Volcasaurus

This XYZ monster is an awesome dinosaur that should be considered in any deck with level 5 monsters. Although it can be underwhelming at times, it can secure a victory if used correctly. The reason it’s only in 9th place on the list isn’t due to it being ‘bad’, it’s more to do with the other dinosaur monster being much better. Number 61: Volcasaurus is definitely a great dinosaur though.

8. Tyranno Infinity

Another classic, who can forget the 10,000 ATK Tyranno Infinity? Not me, that’s for sure. I remember winning many games via my opponent using this card, it has a big weakness to the likes of Magic Cylinder. It’s a powerful dinosaur monster that’s really satisfying to use, this is really important in determining the best dinosaurs for this list!

7. Grenosaurus

The resemblance between the art on this card and Tyranno Infinity’s art is uncanny, but the monsters themselves couldn’t be any more different. Grenosaurus is remarkably easy to summon, requiring only two level 3 monsters. It’s an awesome choice for any deck really, it’s a powerful monsters that can deal quite a bit of damage and it doesn’t take much of your resources to get out on the field.

6. Samurai Cavalry of Reptier

I want to give a shout-out to the Steel Cavalry of Dinon which is another great dinosaur. Samurai Cavalry of Reptier is much better in terms of offensive abilities, which is what dinosaur cards are all about. If it attacks a face-up non-pendulum monster, that monster is destroyed immediately. It can take down the likes of Blue-Eyes White Dragon without any trouble, such an effect is invaluable for a level 4 beater.

5. Megalosmasher X

I’d be lying if I said Megalosmasher X isn’t in top 5 for its art, it looks incredible. Aesthetics aside, it’s an exceptionally powerful dinosaur type monster, in fact, any level 4 or lower monster with such high ATK is a great choice for a number of decks. Effects are always helpful but you can’t deny a card like this is worth its weight in gold.

4. Giant Rex

Yeah it can’t attack directly but it’ll help clear your opponent’s field so your other monster can dish out some damage. Dinosaurs have a variety of tactics to manipulate banished cards so its secondary effect will work well in most dinosaur decks. It’s overall usefulness grants it a place in the top 5, it’s just too versatile and powerful to leave it out!

3. Miscellaneousaurus

It’s great to see dinosaurs finally get some versatility in their kit, cards like this are huge for making a type work competitively. It’s a must-have in any dinosaur deck, both its first and secondary effects are crucial to the viability of your dinosaurs. If you take into account its use as a level 4 beater as well, then you have one of the best dinosaur monsters in the game!

2. Souleating Oviraptor

There appears to be a trend here, low-level high ATK dinosaurs with summoning effects are key to a successful dinosaur deck. Yugioh nowadays is all about maniupulating your hand, deck and graveyard before your opponent can. Duels are short, OTKs are frequent. This card helps immensely, giving the player a huge array of options as to what they do next.

1. Ultimate Conductor Tyranno

You saw it coming, the recently released Ultimate Conductor Tyranno brings a whole new kettle of fish to the dinosaur type. With a straightforward summoning cost and powerful effect, this boss monster is critical to keeping up with the power of today’s decks. The Tyranno archetype has always been filled with high ATK monsters but they’ve always fell a bit short when it comes to effectiveness, Ultimate Conductor Tyranno has dismissed their incompetence once and for all!
