"Cyber Dragon" (サイバー・ドラゴン Saibā Doragon) is a series of cards that are part of the "Cyber" archetype. They are a group of Machine-Type monsters, most of which are LIGHT, used by Zane Truesdale, then later by Syrus Truesdale in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime and manga and by Paradox in Yu-Gi-Oh! 3D Bonds Beyond Time.

"Chimeratech" monsters are related to, but not part of, the "Cyber Dragon" series, being composed of DARK, Machine-Type Fusion Monsters. Both "Chimeratechs" require multiple Fusion Material Monsters, one of which must be a "Cyber Dragon". The ATK and DEF of the "Chimeratechs" is a variable multiplied by the number of monsters used in its Fusion Summon, which can be as high as the user wants. The variables are x800 for "Chimeratech Overdragon" and x1000 for "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon".

Playing style

The main strategy for these cards is to Summon the stronger "Cyber Dragon" Fusion Monsters. When building a Deck around these cards use strong Machine-Type monster cards to help keep the field clear and to unleash the devastating powers of the "Chimeratech" cards. Union monsters, like "Heavy Mech Support Platform" and "Armored Cybern", can help with supporting monsters already on the field. The effect of "The Light - Hex-Sealed Fusion" can be used to Special Summon "Cyber Twin Dragon" and "Cyber End Dragon".

"Honest" is ideal to support the LIGHT-Attribute monsters. "Jinzo" can negate all Trap Cards or "Cyber Phoenix" to negate Spells and Traps that target Machines on the field providing protection to Special Summon "Cyber Twin Dragon" without worrying about your opponent traps or spells, while providing more Fusion Material for the "Chimeratech" Dragons.

"Limiter Removal" can be used in place of an "Honest", as it affects all Machines, though with the fatal drawback of destroying all your Machines at the end of the turn. "DNA Surgery" and "Super Polymerization" are also good cards to include, since they allow you to use your opponent's monsters for "Chimeratech Overdragon" or "Chimeratech Fortress Dragon", as well as clearing your opponent's field for an easy OTK.

There are two possible Chimeratech OTK strategies. The first requires "Chimeratech Overdragon", "Future Fusion" and "Overload Fusion" often resulting in a "Chimeratech Overdragon" with extremely high ATK. "Future Fusion" is used to select "Chimeratech Overdragon", sending a lot of Machine-Type monsters from the Deck to the Graveyard. "Overload Fusion" is then used to banish all Machine-Type monsters from the Graveyard to Summon "Chimeratech Overdragon".

The second is to Summon "Cyber Kirin" and Tribute him to make any effect damage 0. Then activate "Future Fusion" and send at least 10 Machines to the Graveyard to later Summon "Chimeratech Overdragon". Then use "Overload Fusion" to banish those monsters to Summon another copy of "Chimeratech Overdragon" and Set "Ring of Destruction". On your opponent's turn, activate "Ring of Destruction" and destroy "Chimeratech Overdragon" dealing over 8000 damage to your opponent. This way only works if you are playing in a traditional format, not in tournaments.

There are times when "Chimeratech Overdragon" can be removed from the field as soon as its Summoned by means of "Bottomless Trap Hole", "Solemn Warning", and "Torrential Tribute". However, "Chimeratech Overdragon" being Summoned by means of "Future Fusion" allows it to be useful for "Cyber Eltanin". When you have LIGHT Attribute Machine-Type Monsters on your field, they can also be used as Summon requirements for "Cyber Eltanin" by just removing them from play. Not only will "Cyber Eltanin" have high ATK, but once its Summoned to the field it also clears it of any other monsters besides itself leaving your opponent open to a direct attack. A quick combo is to use the "Gadgets" to bring Machine-Types to your hand so you can fuse them with "Cyber Dragon" to create "Chimeratech Overdragon".
