  • This card can easily be Synchro Summoned on your first turn. If you have a "Quickdraw Synchron", "Level Eater" and a "Synchron Explorer" in your hand, you start by Special Summoning "Quickdraw Synchron" by discarding "Level Eater". Then use the effect of "Level Eater" to Special Summon it from the Graveyard. Next tune "Quickdraw Synchron" to "Level Eater" to Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior". Summon "Synchron Explorer" and revive "Quickdraw Synchron". Special Summon "Level Eater" (decrease the Level of "Junk Warrior"), and Synchro Summon "Road Warrior". Use its effect to summon a Level 1 Tuner monster. Decease the Level of "Road Warrior" to Special Summon "Level Eater" and Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron". Decrease the Level of "Road Warrior" again to Special Summon "Level Eater". "Road Warrior" is now Level 6, "Junk Warrior": Level 4, and "Formula Synchron" Level 2, which will allow you to Synchro Summon this card.
    • Using "Junk Synchron", Special Summon a Level 1 Tuner monster.
    • Special Summon "Doppelwarrior" with its own effect.
    • Use "Junk" and "Doppel" to Synchro Summon "T.G. Hyper Librarian", getting 2 "Doppel Tokens".
    • Discard "Level Eater" to Summon "Quickdraw Synchron".
    • Reduce the level of "Quickdraw Synchron" to Special Summon "Level Eater".
    • Use "Quickdraw Synchron" and "Level Eater" to Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior", drawing 1 card from the effect of "Hyper Librarian".
    • If your opponent controls a monster(s) and you control no monsters, you can Synchro Summon this card in one turn if your hand contains the following: "Unknown Synchron", "Boost Warrior", "Machine Duplication" and "Reborn Tengu."
      • 1) Special Summon "Unknown Synchron" via its effect. Activate "Machine Duplication" to Special Summon 2 more from your Deck. (NOTE: The other copies MUST be in your Deck for this to work.)
      • 2) Normal Summon "Reborn Tengu".
      • 3) Tune 1 "Unknown" with "Reborn Tengu" for "Hyper Librarian." Special Summon another "Reborn Tengu" from your Deck when the first one leaves the field.
      • 4) Tune another "Unknown" with the other "Reborn Tengu" for any Level 5 Synchro Monster. Draw 1 card via the effect of "Hyper Librarian."
      • 5) Special Summon "Boost Warrior" via its effect. Tune it with the last "Unknown" for "Formula Synchron". Draw 2 cards with its effect and the effect of "Hyper Librarian."
      • You can substitute "Machine Duplication" with "Inferno Reckless Summon", provided that the monster(s) your opponent controls are face-up.
      • You can substitute "Boost Warrior" with "Turbo Booster" or "Jester Confit".
    • If you open with "Unknown Synchron", "Quickdraw Synchron", "Foolish Burial", "Level Eater" and "Monster Reborn" (Traditional Format, only): Send "Level Eater" to the Graveyard to Special Summon "Quickdraw", Special Summon Eater (reduce "Quickdraw" to 4), Synch for "Junk Warrior". Normal Summon "Unknown Synchron", "Foolish Burial", "Dandylion" for 2 Level 1 Tokens. Tune "Unknown" and 1 Token for "Formula Synchron". Special Summon "Eater" (reduce "Junk" to 4), Reborn "Quickdraw", tune "Quickdraw" with either "Eater" or the remaining Token for "Drill Warrior". Synchro Summon this card with "Formula", "Junk" and "Drill" (1 "Eater" or Token leftover).
    • Interestingly, this card can be summoned in an "Infernity" Deck using just "Infernity Mirage" and a few cards from your Graveyard. Do not use "Hyper Librarian" for the Level 5 Synchro Monster.
    • You can Summon this card in your first turn in a "Laval" Deck with "Molten Conduction Field", "Rekindling" and a Level 1 non-Tuner monster in your hand, this way:
      • 1) Activate "Molten Conduction Field" and send "Laval Magma Cannoneer" and "Laval Volcano Handmaiden".
      • 2) With "Handmaiden" send a second "Handmaiden", with it send a third and finally send a second "Cannoner".
      • 3) Activate "Rekindling" and Summon all your "Laval" monsters, then tune 2 Level 5 monster like "Hyper Librarian" and "Laval Dual Slasher" with "Cannoneer" and "Handmaiden".
      • 4) Summon your Level 1 monster, to do this use better "Boost Warrior" or "Searing Fire Wall" or the like, that way you don't use your Normal Summon;
      • 5) Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron" with your Level 1 monster and the last "Handmaiden", then Synchro Summon this card.
    • With the above strategy, you can Summon this card with 3 attacks if you also have "One for One" and "Level Eater" in your hand, and also draw 5 cards, this way:
      • Do the same step 1 to 3 of the above strategy and tune "Hyper Librarian" and "Laval Dual Slasher" (and draw 1 card with "Librarian").
      • 4) Synchro Summon "Laval Dual Slasher" with the last "Handmaiden" in any Synchro Level 6 (like "Lavalval Dragun", to set some other combo) and draw 1 card, that way you set the grave with 3 different "Laval" monsters ("Cannoneer", "Handmaiden" and "Slasher");
      • 5) Activate "One for One" sending "Level Eater" to Graveyard to Summon "Soaring Eagle Above the Searing Land";
      • 6) Use the effect of "Level Eater" on your Level 6 monster to Special Summon it from the Graveyard, then Synchro Summon "Formula Synchron", draw 2 cards and Summon "Eagle" with its effect.
  • Use this card against "Monarch", "Dragunity", "Junk" Decks and other archetypes that are heavily dependent on Normal Summoning monsters to gain effects.
  • This card can create a mini-lockdown when played with "T.G. Halberd Cannon", as you will be able to negate the first Summon and first effect the opponent plays each turn, meaning that they will have to sacrifice many cards to remove the monsters from the field.
  • If you have conditions to Xyz Summon "Baby Tiragon", do it and activate "Falling Current" to make this card a Level 1 monster and then use the effect of "Baby Tiragon" to allow it to attack directly.
  • Use "De-Synchro" to have this card leaving the field and be able to Special Summon "Shooting Star Dragon", then Synchro Summon it again.
    • Don't forget that to this combo work, any of the Synchro Monsters used to Synchro Summon this card cannot be Nomi monsters and must be able to be Special Summoned by other ways and not only through Synchro Summon.
  • You can Synchro Summon this card With 3 attacks if these conditions are met:
    • Hand: "Quickdraw Synchron", "Junk Synchron" and "Level Eater".
    • Graveyard: "Quillbolt Hedgehog" and any Level 1 Tuner.
    • Field: Any card that can revive a Level 1 Tuner ("Revival Gift"/"Limit Reverse"/"Graceful Revival").
    • 1) Special Summon "Quickdraw Synchron" by discarding "Level Eater".
    • 2) Use the effect of "Level Eater" to Special Summon itself by targeting "Quickdraw Synchron." Tune "Quickdraw" and "Level Eater" to Synchro Summon "Junk Warrior." Special Summon "Level Eater" by reducing the Level of "Junk Warrior" by 1.
    • 3) Normal Summon "Junk Synchron" and revive the Level 1 Tuner. Special Summon "Quillbolt Hedgehog" with its effect. Tune "Junk Synchron" with "Quillbolt Hedgehog" for "T.G. Hyper Librarian".
    • 4) Special Summon "Level Eater" by reducing the Level of "Junk Warrior" by 1. Tune "Level Eater" with the Level 1 Tuner for "Formula Synchron". Draw 2 cards with its effect and the effect of "Hyper Librarian".
    • 5) Reduce the Level of "Hyper Librarian" to Special Summon "Level Eater." Revive the Level 1 Tuner with "Revival Gift"/"Limit Reverse"/"Graceful Revival". Tune it with "Level Eater" for "T.G. Recipro Dragonfly." Draw 1 card.
    • 6) Tune "T.G. Recipro Dragonfly", "T.G. Hyper Librarian", "Junk Warrior" and "Formula Synchron" for this card with 3 attacks.
  • Because this card can only negate one Spell/Trap/Monster effect once per turn, it is important to have a face-down such as "Dark Bribe", "Breakthrough Skill", etc, in case your opponent has more than one dangerous effect they can use on the same turn.
  • Equip this card with "Silver Wing" and you will be ridiculously hard to stop. It would take either 2 destruction effects or 3 attacks from a monster(s) with over 4000 ATK and even if your opponent somehow pulls that off, they'd still have to deal with your "Shooting Star Dragon" which is still hard to destroy even though it's not as powerful as this card.
  • This card is also possible to Summon on your first turn with "Photon"/LIGHT Deck, but you really need luck. Special Summon "Photon Thrasher" and then play "Photon Lead" to Special Summon "D.D. Sprite". Then play "Inferno Reckless Summon" to Summon 2 more "Sprites", and Normal Summon another Level 1 LIGHT monster (such as "Photon Satellite"). Next, tune your "Thrasher" with "Sprite" to get "T.G. Hyper Librarian" and another "Sprite" with "Satellite" to get "Formula Synchron". Then activate "Call of the Haunted" to get your "Thrasher" back and tune it with "Sprite" to get any Level 5 Synchro Monster. Finally, tune the 2 Level 5 with "Formula Synchron" to Summon this card.
  • In a "Plant Synchro" Deck, this card can be Summoned in one turn if you have "Lonefire Blossom" and "Soul Charge" in your hand.
    • 1) Normal Summon "Lonefire BLossom" and Tribute it to Special Summon another "Lonefire" from your Deck. Then, Tribute the second "Lonefire" to Special Summon "Dandylion" from your Deck.
    • 2) Activate "Soul Charge" and pay 2000 Life Points to Special Summon the two "Lonefires" from your Graveyard.
    • 3) Tribute "Dandylion" with the effect of one "Lonefire" and Special Summon "Spore" from your Deck, while Special Summoning two "Fluff Tokens" due to the effect of "Dandylion".
    • 4) Send "Spore" and a "Fluff Token" to the Graveyard to Synchro Summon a Level 2 Tuner Synchro Monster.
    • 5) Banish "Dandylion" from your Graveyard to Special Summon "Spore" from your Graveyard and make it a Level 4 monster.
    • 6) Use the effect of the second "Lonefire" (the one whose effect was not used in Step 3) and Tribute it to Special Summon a level 2 Plant-Type Tuner (such as "Nettles" or "Naturia Cosmobeet") from your Deck.
    • 7) Send "Spore" and the second "Fluff Token" to the Graveyard to Synchro Summon a Level 5 Synchro Monster.
    • 8) Send "Nettles" and "Lonefire" to the Graveyard to Synchro Summon a second Level 5 Synchro Monster,
    • 9) Send the Level 2 Tuner Synchro Monster and the two Level 5 Synchro Monsters to the Graveyard to Synchro Summon this card.
  • Activate "Shadow Impulse" when this card is destroyed by battle or card effect, and Special Summon a "Red Nova Dragon", in addition to the "Shooting Star Dragon" you get from the effect of this card.


  • Because your opponent will be very likely to use up a lot of resources to bring this card out, try to use Summoning negation effect(s) upon its Summon instead of the Summon of its Synchro Materials.
