I wouldn't say overpowered really. I know some don't like to play with Giant Brain or Extra Head because they are pretty strong, but they are not gamebreaking in my opinion.

If you are referring to Evolution cards, Pandakai's are pretty strong as are Gigazaurs. Gigazaur has a few that if you get them at the same time it is almost impossible to defeat him.

Are several cards very powerful, almost 'overpowered'? Definitely. Do I prefer not to play with them? No way!

This isn't a finely balanced euro economic/resource simulation. It's B-movie monsters punching each other. Just have fun, and don't worry about what is 'fair'. It'll balance out in the long run, anyway.

And, for what it's worth, just to answer the question... I think the cards that give you extra dice are the most powerful in the game. If someone gets one (or both!) of them early on, it's pretty much over. But would I take them out of the game? That would deprive someone the fun of getting them and wreaking havoc.

Since you posted this to the Power Up! board and not the main board, I'm going to assume you meant Evolutions.
In that case: no, there are no real overpowered Evolutions.
Unless you play by the interpretation that Bamboo Supply coughs up an Energy EVERY turn, and not just for the PLAYER's turn.

For base game, Jets/Wings can be annoying, but not necessarily overpowered.

We overpower even more.

FI ; Xray card.
I had it once, did 5 claws during my turn, my opponent got 5 xray token. Yeah.
Only 1 die left to throw with.

Shrink Rays give one Shrink token per ATTACK, NOT per Claw.
He would have to hit your 5 different times over 5 different turns for it to be an issue.
