This card's name becomes "The Legendary Fisherman" while on the field or in the GY. While "Umi" is on the field, this card is unaffected by other monsters' effects. If this face-up card is destroyed by battle, or leaves the field because of an opponent's card effect while its owner controls it: You can add 1 Level 7 WATER monster from your Deck to your hand.
Since its combined attack and defense is exactly 4,000, you can use Card of the Soul to get it to your hand from the deck at the start of the duel, and Warrior of Atlantis can be used to get A Legendary Ocean from your deck. This will allow you to summon Legendary Fisherman II without tribute.
These are the cards that can trigger Legendary Fisherman II’s effect. A Legendary Ocean is the most popular choice because it can reduce Legendary Fisherman II’s level and allow you to Normal Summon it directly. Lemuria, The Forgotten City is treated as “Umi”, while granting additional ATK and DEF to all WATER monsters, it can also grant all WATER monsters you control Levels equal to the number of WATER monsters you control, until the End phase. Forgotten Temple of the Deep is treated as “Umi”, you can banish level 4 or lower Fish, Sea Serpent or Aqua-type monster you control, Special Summon that monster during your End Phase.
Legendary Fisherman II is able to search for these monsters when it was destroyed by battle or card effects. Citadel Whale is able to set Sea Stealth Attack when it was Special Summoned to the Field, this will in turn grant Legendary Fisherman II the ability to destroy your opponent’s monster at the start of Damage Step. Although Legendary Fisherman II can search for Levia-Dragon - Daedalus, you will require a different set up to summon it to the Field and destroy every card on the Field except itself.
This is basically a staple card for Legendary Fisherman II to assist it in destroying stronger opponent monsters. It can also banish Legendary Fisherman II and resummon it, should your monster sustained negative effects from your opponent.
But it's write "this card is unaffected by other monsters' effects", which means any monsters effect should not work on him, but it would make more sense if it was something like "he cannot be targeted by mosters effect". I understand this, but I think the text is wrong.
The only reason OG fisherman has the censor was 4Kids being 4Kids.
Now that 4Kids is no longer in charge, cards no longer gets stupid edits. You can see this in how TCG recently got OCG artwork for Monster Reborn and Exodia, and how female monsters are getting way less edits compared to back then.
Dakini's effect; You can MAKE YOUR OPPONENT send 1 monster they control to the Graveyard (their choice). It is not affecting the monster, but the player instead. I believe not because it doesnt target.
Yomi Ship for example, it also doesn't target, but since it is monster effect, fisherman 2 wont be destroyed by yomi ship.
So this + legendary ocean = an instant rebd (have the same atk and def) immune to monster's effects
No kuriboh sphere, no hane hane/gale lizard, no man eater bug. Not bad
