  • "The First Monarch" can help Tribute Summon this card. Discard a monster that can be Special Summoned from the Graveyard immediately after discard, like Level Eater, and declare the DIVINE Attribute to change the Attribute of "The First Monarch". Then simply Tribute both monsters.
  • Use Life Points gaining cards or "Life Equalizer" to gain access to this card's monster destroying effect.
    • Use "Rain of Mercy" before activating that Trap. Be careful to decide whether you want to activate this card before or after Summoning "Ra". Activating it before would give "Ra" and extra 1000 ATK, but on the other hand activating it after Summoning would allow you to use the destruction effect of "Ra" once more. Either way your opponent would have 1000 more life points while you are left with 100 total, thereby increasing your chances of meeting the requirements of "Life Equalizer".
  • If you control two "Flint Locks", "Flint" and "Morale Boost", then you can continuously equip "Flint", switching between the two "Flint Locks", while "Morale Boost" gives you 1000 Life Points each time you do so. This can be repeated infinitely, effectively giving you access to an astronomically high number of Life Points. Adding "Spell Absorption" to this cycle will add an extra 500 points for each time you do this, boosting your Life Points even higher. By using "Inferno Reckless Summon" to get 3 "Flint Lock" monsters on and doing the loop, you can then Tribute them to Summon "Ra" after gaining enough LPs for an OTK.
  • Use "Destruct Potion" or "Mystik Wok" to regain the Life Points used for attack when this card may be destroyed or a card effect may reduce your Life Points to 0.
  • "Supremacy Berry" can be very useful after Summoning this card as it often gives you the power to kill 2 monsters and maybe direct attack for massive damage.
  • "Draining Shield" allows you to build up Life Points for either of this card's effects.
  • "Enchanted Javelin" lets you gain back Life Points you paid for its second effect almost immediately after you summon.
  • 2 copies of "Life Absorbing Machine" can give you back the Life Points you paid for the effects of "The Winged Dragon of Ra".
    • Using 3 copies will increase your Life Points even more.
  • Instead of activating this card's effect to gain ATK, equip it with "Heart of Clear Water" to protect it as you use its monster destruction effect.
    • Using "Spirit Barrier", you can avoid taking damage from your opponent's monsters.
  • Have "Dark Bribe" on the field to protect this card from effects that can destroy it.
  • Use "Ancient Fairy Dragon" to gain Life Points to use for this card's destruction effect, or even Special Summon monsters to help Tribute Summon it.
  • If both you and your opponent have around the same amount of Life Points before you activate the ATK and DEF increasing effect of "The Winged Dragon of Ra", activate another card effect that increases the ATK of "Ra" and attempt to attack for game.
  • With "Healing Wave Generator" on the field with this card you can generate just enough Life Points to use this card's destruction effect.
  • In a "Psychic" Deck you can use "Telekinetic Power Well" in order to Summon 3 Level 2 or lower Psychic-Type monsters to fulfill this monsters Summoning requirements.
  • Use "DNA Surgery" to transform this card into a Psychic-Type monster, then equip this card with "Telekinetic Charging Cell", allowing you to use its second effect for free.
    • After destroying your opponent's monsters, you can activate "Giant Trunade" or "Full House" to eliminate their Spells and Traps as well, allowing you to deal a ridiculous amount of damage without fear.
    • You can also use "Brain Research Lab", but comes with the risk of dealing damage when destroyed.
  • Use "Prime Material Dragon" to both prevent your opponent from using burn to finish you off after you use this card's effect, and to protect it from card effects.
  • Use "Soul Exchange" to sacrifice your opponent's most powerful monster to help clear the field (at the same time you will only have to sacrifice 2 of your monsters). This can also be helpful to get rid of "Stardust Dragon" and other similar cards, which can easily get in the way of this card's second effect. The Monarchs Stormforth is superior, due to not targeting and letting you attack the same turn.
  • Use "Power Frame" to make this card have the same ATK as a monster your opponent controls without the need to decrease your life points to be able to have enough ATK to stay alive and destroy monsters on the field.
  • Use Stall cards like "Swords of Revealing Light", to buy you some time to Summon this card. You can search for this card with "Gold Sarcophagus" or "Different Dimension Capsule" before using "Revealing Light" therefore you will not need to worry about attacks from the opponent's monsters while you gather Tributes for this card. This also works for "Obelisk the Tormentor" and "Slifer the Sky Dragon".
  • To regain life point's place "Sebek's Blessing" before Summoning "The Winged Dragon of Ra". When "Ra" is summoned reduce your Life Points to increase the ATK to max. Then attack directly with "Ra" and after the attack, activate "Sebek's Blessing". This will restore the Life Points you offered.

Traditional Format

  • Summon this card and activate its first effect, then activate "Last Turn" for an almost guaranteed win.
  • Be extremely careful if your opponent has cards such as "Creature Swap", especially if you've reduced your Life Points to increase this card's ATK.
