This card is also superb in Low-Level Normal Monster decks, such as rely on "Human-Wave Tactics" as a set-up for "The Law of the Normal". Its defense is higher than even that of most level 4 monsters, so chances are it'll keep them at bay for a long while.
If you use "Shield & Sword" with this card, then Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior", "Junk Warrior" will get a nice 2100 attack point boost, increasing its attack points to a minimum of 4400. You can attack again with this card for massive damage, potentially fatal.
Combine this card with "Solar Flare Dragon". If "Charcoal Inpachi" has a small DEF boost, the combo will be almost impossible to destroy by battle, and your opponent will take 500 damage every turn.
