"Kozmo" (Kozmoコズモ Kozumo) is one of two TCG-exclusive archetypes that premiered in Clash of Rebellions, the other being the "Kaiju" archetype.

The archetype consists of LIGHT and DARK Psychic-Type "pilot" monsters and Machine-Type "spaceship" monsters who banish themselves to Special Summon other "Kozmo" monsters. The pilot monsters have a Quick Effect to banish themselves from the field to Special Summon any "Kozmo" monster from the hand with a higher Level, while the spaceship monsters have a Trigger Effect to banish themselves from the Graveyard when destroyed to Special Summon or add to the hand (depending on the card) any "Kozmo" monster from the Deck with a lower Level.[1]

The archetype also includes several effects that manipulate the player's LP, with some cards requiring the player to lose/pay LP, and some restoring them, similar to the initial Psychic-Type monsters.

Origin

The "Kozmo" cards seem to be based on properties from The Wizard of Oz and Star Wars. The pilot monsters are based on characters, the spaceship monsters on objects and vehicles, and the Field Spell Card on a location. The Psychic-Type of the pilot monsters is likely a reference to the Force-sensitive characters from Star Wars.

Playing style

The "Kozmo" strategy generally focuses on dealing large amounts of damage as fast as possible through winning battles rather than more complicated card combos. The "Kozmo" monsters themselves have few removal effects, so instead must focus on their attacks. Fortunately, their Summoning Quick Effects can make up for this lack of removal, and they can work well with both "Honest" and "Juragedo" to ensure damage.

Recommended cards

Weaknesses

  • "Imperial Iron Wall" is a solid choice to use against this archetype, as it relies primarily on banishing monsters to Summon more "Kozmo" monsters from the hand or Deck. However, ignoring the presence of generic cards such as "Mystical Space Typhoon" and "Galaxy Cyclone" that may be teched, this card can still be destroyed if the "Kozmo" player manages to Summon a "Kozmo Sliprider".
  • "Vanity's Emptiness" will greatly slow down the deck for a short moment.

"The Kozmo monsters are split up into two groups: the Psychic-Type “pilot” monsters and the Machine-Type “spaceship” monsters. Pilots can be banished to Summon any Kozmo monster from your hand with a higher Level than the pilot as a Quick Effect, and spaceships can be banished when they’re destroyed to Summon any Kozmo monster from your Deck with a lower Level."
