The term " Anthro" refers to the Greek word " anthropos" (ἄνθρωπος) meaning "human" or "man", while " saurus" means "terrible lizard". So, this card's name means "Terrible Lizard Man."
As this card's first TCG release was in Legendary Collection 4: Joey's World Mega Pack, which was heavily based off the character Joey Wheeler, this card's English card text is written with Joey's stereotypical Brooklyn accent.
Seven more cards from Legendary Collection 4: Joey's World Mega Pack, appropriately named Joey's World, also had their English flavor texts written in this style: " Meotoko", " Skull Stalker", " Wolf", " Stone Armadiller", " Hero of the East", " Little D". All of these seven cards and "Anthrosaurus" are seen in Joey's very first Deck, except for "Hero of the East", which is only seen when Joey has a dream of himself with his inexperienced Deck, and "Little D", which has yet to appear in any canon series. " Alligator's Sword" also has similar card text, and can also be found in Legendary Collection 4: Joey's World Mega Pack.
The last word in the card text is "nyah" a catchphrase of Joey Wheeler in Yugioh the Abridged series.
This card's Italian, Portuguese and Spanish flavor texts are also written in eye dialect for the sake of humor. Apart from the French text which is translated more directly from the Japanese text in a little more serious way, texts in other TCG languages appear to be translated from the English text.
