  • Can only Special Summon itself when you control no monsters.


  • The free Special Summoning and level modulation effect make this card great for making Synchros. Paired with a level-2 Tuner you get access to level-7 and level-8 Synchros, which have the widest range of generic Synchro monsters.

Insect Imitation

Special Summon Primitive Butterfly and increase its level by 1. Then use Insect Imitation to Special Summon a level-7 Insect from your deck, letting you Special Summon Metamorphosed Insect Queen.

Who said Blue-Eyes decks couldn't easily synchro summon Samurai Destroyer?
The level changing effect could be useful for Xyz too, once we have it.

That's exactly how Haruto use this card in the Zexal manga.

Special Summon a copy with its effect, then Special Summon another copy with another card's effect, make both Primitive Butterflies Level 7, then overlay both into No. 28 Titanic Moth.

Yep, that's what I have in mind too. My generic synchro deck for use against standard duelists can make use of this card.
