• Cards that force your opponent's monsters to battle this monster such as "Battle Mania", etc, can be used.
  • "Staunch Defender" can be used to respond to your opponent attacking your weaker monster, that way all of your opponent's monsters can be forced to attack this card thereby banishing them all from play and ending the Battle Phase.
  • Combine this card with "Soul Absorption" to gain 1000 LP each time it battles.
  • This monster can also be used to get rid of monsters who rely on their effects for their ATK or are using Equip Cards, such as "Chimeratech Overdragon", "Power Tool Dragon" and other such cards.
  • Despite it being a lower form, this card can counter "Neo Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" as long it is Summoned second or "Neo-Galaxy Eyes" was Summoned without using "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" as an Xyz Material:
    • If "Neo Galaxy-Eyes" attacks, both monsters can be banished, preventing your "Galaxy-Eyes" from being destroyed by battle.
    • If it has as three overlay units, it can gain 1500 ATK which would make it equal to "Neo Galaxy-Eyes".
  • Combo this card with "Chaos Zone" to easily rack up counters for use later.


  • In a "Hieratic" Deck, this card can be easily Special Summoned by the effect of "Hieratic Dragon King of Atum". In addition, the downside of having 0 ATK will be remedied by this card's effect after returning to the field.
  • This card works very well with powerful monsters whose effects change them to Defense Position after they attack (like "Photon Crusher", "Goblin Attack Force", "Axe Dragonute", etc). Since most of them have low DEF, they can easily be destroyed by battle after an attack. Tribute them for this card to get a better defense.
  • Use the effect of "Cybernetic Magician" to boost the ATK of 1-2 monsters on your field to Special Summon this card.
  • Special Summon cards like "The Tricky", "Cyber Dragon", or "Photon Thrasher", and then Normal Summon a monster that has 2000 or more ATK like "Alexandrite Dragon" or "Gene-Warped Warwolf".
  • Two of this card can be fused into "Twin Photon Lizard", then Tribute itself for its effect, Special Summoning both copies in one turn. This only works if both copies are in the Graveyard, however.
  • The effect of "Photon Thrasher" can help Summon this card, as long as any monster with 2000 or more ATK can be Normal Summoned.
