This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except with "Assault Mode Activate". If this card attacks, destroy all other monsters after damage calculation.

  • Good attack stat.
  • Destroys all other monsters.
  • Floats into Red Dragon Archfiend.


  • Difficult to summon.
  • Also destroys your monsters.
  • Removal effect only activates upon attacking.


  • Requiring you to use a specific Synchro monster with a specific Trap card to summon a monster is pretty costly and tedious, especially with no other way to work around this summoning condition. If simply aiming for a board wipe Black Rose Dragon is a much more efficient option.


Psi-Reflector is great for starting a combo culminating to Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode’s summoning. Summon Psi Reflector, search Assault Mode Activate, revive a monster and adjust its level accordingly to make Red Dragon Archfiend. Now you have both requirements to make Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode.

Destruction Options

Here are some monsters that pair well with Red Dragon Archfiend/Assault Mode because they trigger effects upon destruction. The best ones are those that can revive or float into other monsters when destroyed.

Return to Deck

Assault Mode Activate can only Special Summon /Assault Mode monsters from the deck so use these to return him to the deck in case you draw him.




Monster/Spell/Trap categoriesDestroys your Monster Cards / Destroys your opponent's Monster Cards
Summoning categoriesCannot Normal Summon / Cannot Set / Nomi / Special Summons from your Graveyard


Why stardust assault mode not release?
This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except with "Assault Mode Activate". If this card attacks, destroy all other monsters after damage calculation. When this card on the field is destroyed, you can Special Summon 1 "Red Dragon Archfiend" from your Graveyard.

Konami should modify this card effect to :
~"(when this card leaves the monster field (destroyed or sent to the grave or returned to the deck) by your opponent" special summon red dragon archfiend
from hand,deck, or graveyard ignoring summoning conditions"~

It's already strong enough if you know how to use it. If you can't predict your opponent's strategies you are simply not worthy of winning. Do you think all kog players just mess around with strong cards to win the duels?

actually they just copy the meta kog decks and go with the flow since they're so strong they give large rooms of error ...
We need Stardust Assault too
And Quasar
reminds me of the metalzoa style
for meta competitive, this card lack of:
- target immunity
- negate spell/trap oncer per turn

in other word, this is trash
HOLY SMOKE, this card is support powerful dude. Damn, this EX deck is going to be the best.

Don't expect /AM monsters to be great. If you draw them, it's basically a dead draw and most of them are only slightly better than their Synchro Counterparts.

They're still fun to play however.
Is this card available

It also destroys all your other monsters regardless of position and lacks real protection from effect.

It's not as OP as it seems to be.
Please add majestic monsters
