  • Before it was restricted, you could use "Card Trooper", along with "Limiter Removal" or "Cybernetic Magician". Summon one "Card Trooper", then use "Machine Duplication" to get 2 more from your Deck. Then, if you chose "Cybernetic Magician", use his effect first to power them up, then use their effects to have 3 "Card Troopers" with 3500 ATK. If you chose "Limiter Removal", you can use their effect first, then use "Limiter Removal" to power them up to 3800 ATK each.
  • Using this card with "Karakuri Strategist mdl 248 "Nishipachi"" you can tune 3 "Karakuri Strategist mdl 248 "Nishipachi"" to "XX-Saber Gottoms".
    • This card works well with just about any Karakuri monster and if used with Inferno Reckless Summon, you can Xyz Summon with your new monsters.
  • Using "Machine Duplication" with "Woodborg Inpachi" as a target will allow you to take up to another two from your Deck and Special Summon them in Defense Position. This will mean you have three monsters with 2500 DEF. This is especially useful in a defensive Deck.
    • For an offensive strategy, you could Special Summon "Woodborg Inpachi" in attack position. You can then use "Shield & Sword" to switch their ATK and DEF stats. Activate "Limiter Removal" to have 3 monsters with an attack of 5000.
    • "Delta Attacker" can also be used to allow the three "Woodborg Inpachis" to attack directly for an OTK.
  • Using "Alchemy Cycle" will reduce all your face up monsters' attack to 0 for the turn, allowing any machine type monster to be useable for "Machine Duplication"'s effect, include ones with high ATK or good effects.
  • Use "DNA Surgery" to allow more monsters to be used with this card.
    • In a "Frog" Deck this combo can search almost any monster.
  • Monsters summoned by "Machine Duplication" are fairly weak in terms of ATK if they aren't using a name exploit (such as by "Proto-Cyber Dragon's" effect)
  • Use "Magnet Circle LV2" to Special Summon "Ancient Gear" and then activate "Machine Duplication" to Special Summon 2 other "Ancient Gears" and you can tribute them.
  • Using "Machine Duplication" with "Cyber Valley" is useful for activating the effects of it.
  • You can reduce one "Proto-Cyber Dragon's" ATK using "Armored Cybern's" effect and then use "Machine Duplication" to Special Summon 2 "Cyber Dragons" from your Deck.
  • Use "Power Converter" on a powerful Machine type monster to bring its ATK to 0, then use this card to summon two more of that monster to the field (applicable only in Tag Force 4).
  • Use "Machine Duplication" on an "Ancient Gear" or "Ancient Gear Cannon" to provide the condition necessary to use "Spell Gear", granted you have 2 more in your Deck.
  • Equip any Machine-Type monster with "Darkworld Shackles" and it will be a viable target for this card. However, unless you get rid of the original Machine it will remain useless on the field and cost you Life Points by Darkworld Shackles' other effect.
  • Use a card such as Hero Mask to change the name of a Machine-Type monster with 500 or less ATK, then use this card to Special Summon 2 copies of whatever card the Machine-Type monster had its name changed to.
