• You can revive this card with "Rekindling".
    • Doing so can give you a second Level 4 Monster for an Xyz Summon, which will allow you to draw a card.
  • This card's first effect is effective against "Evilswarms", as the Deck runs many Rank 4 monsters.
  • If you control this card, you can use "Super Polymerization" to fuse it with your opponent's Synchro or Xyz Monster into "Elder Entity Norden", deriving them of a monster and allowing you to draw a card via this card's effect. Then, you can revive this card with the effect of "Noden". Alternatively, if this card is in your Graveyard, you can use "Instant Fusion" to summon "Noden", and use "Noden's" effect to revive this card. Overlay both this card and "Noden" into a Rank 4 Xyz Monster, which will allow you to draw another card by this card's effect.
    • You can take advantage of this card being an Xyz Material by following up the above combo with "Black and White Wave", letting you draw a third card and removing another problematic card belonging to the opponent.
    • If the Xyz Monster you summon with this combo is "Outer Entity Nyarla", you can then use it as an Xyz Material to Xyz Summon "Outer Entity Azzathoth". This card, "Noden", and "Nyarla" being attached to "Azathoth" will allow "Azathoth" to use its detach effect to destroy all cards your opponent controls.
  • This card is very easily Summoned in a Baby Raccoon Deck. You can use "Valerifawn, Mystical Beast of the Forest's" effect, which will Special Summon a Level 2 Beast-Type monster, and since "Valerifawn" is a Level 2 Tuner, you can immediately Synchro Summon this card.
  • This card works great in "Alien". Use ""A" Cell Recombination Device" or "Foolish Burial" to set up "Alien Telepath" while also making "A" counters for the opponent, and summon "Alien Ammonite" along with "Alien Dog", resurrecting telepath. Thanks to Dog's counters (or the ones from the quick-play spell), telepath can destroy a spell/trap, then you can tune Dog and Ammonite to summon this guard, potentially get rid of any Xyz the opponent controls, then overlay this card and said Telepath for "King of the Feral Imps", automatically draw a card from Chthugha, then, detach a material from King to also add a reptile (for example "Alien Overlord", which can be summoned thanks to Dog's counters and redistribute even more counters), then you can potentially follow-up the combo with "Black and White Wave" X as many times as you have it, keeping going +1. Considering the Alien deck also runs X3 "Call of the Haunted" because of "Gol'gar", you can later resummon Cthugha while also summoning a second one, going for a xyz (like another copy of king of the ferals) to make you go +2 at minimum for free.
