“Six Samurai” is an archetype of Warrior-Type monsters that was originally introduced in Blades of Spirit and whose main strategy revolves around swarming the field with multiple Level 4 or lower monsters.
Secret Six Samurai - Fuma is a Level 1 Warrior-Type Tuner, which means you can use it to Synchro Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En, and it’s also a “Six Samurai” monster, which means you can Normal Summon it and then Special Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan or Normal Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Kageki and then Special Summon it from your hand.
If Secret Six Samurai - Fuma is destroyed by battle or card effect, you can Special Summon a "Six Samurai" monster from your Deck, except "Secret Six Samurai - Fuma". Since it’s not stated that Secret Six Samurai - Fuma has to be on the field in order for this effect to trigger, you could technically destroy it via Fire King Island, Fire King Avatar Yaksha or Disciple of Nephthys.
Additionally, if exactly 1 "Six Samurai" monster you control (and no other cards) would be destroyed by card effect, you can banish Secret Six Samurai - Fuma from your Graveyard instead. If your opponent activates Offerings to the Doomed and targets your Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En, you can banish Secret Six Samurai - Fuma from your Graveyard to protect it, but, if your opponents banishes Survivals End from the Graveyard and targets Babycerasaurus and Shi En, you will not be able to use Fuma’s effect.
If you control another face-up "Six Samurai" monster, you can Special Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan from your hand.
Normal Summon Secret Six Samurai - Fuma, Special Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan and then Synchro Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En.
Activate Shien's Dojo, Normal Summon Kizan, Special Summon Fuma from the Deck and then Synchro Summon Shi En.
Even if you don’t have Legendary Six Samurai - Kizan in your opening hand, you can still activate Six Samurai Unite, Normal Summon Secret Six Samurai - Fuma, send the Continuous Spell to the Graveyard and potentially draw into it. If you do not end up drawing Kizan, you can still utilize Six Style - Dual Wield for protection thanks to Secret Six Samurai - Fuma.
If you control 1 face-up Attack Position “Six Samurai” monster, Six Style - Dual Wield allows you to target 2 cards your opponent controls and return them to their hand. Synchro Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En and then Set this Trap Card: you will be able to prevent your opponent from using Hey, Trunade! and then get rid of whatever they Summon or Set.
Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En is a Level 5 Synchro that has the ability to, once per turn, negate the activation of an opponent’s Spell/Trap Card and destroy it.
Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En is not able to negate the activation of an effect of a Spell/Trap Card, which means that your opponent will still be able to banish Survival’s End and Diamond Core of Koa'ki Meiru from their Graveyard. You also can’t prevent Amazoness Onslaught from Special Summoning an “Amazoness” monster or from banishing one of your monsters; if your opponent activated the Continuous Trap before you were able to Summon Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En, there is nothing you can really do about it.
If Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En is about to be destroyed, you can choose to destroy another face-up “Six Samurai” monster you control instead.
You can Special Summon Secret Six Samurai - Rihan by sending 3 “Six Samurai” monsters you control with different attributes to the Graveyard. Once per turn, by banishing a "Six Samurai" card from your hand or face-up from your side of the field, Secret Six Samurai - Rihan allows you to target a card on the field and banish it.
If a "Six Samurai" monster(s) you control would be destroyed by battle or card effect, you can banish this card from your Graveyard instead. Unlike Secret Six Samurai - Fuma and Secret Six Samurai - Genba, Secret Six Samurai - Rihan can protect your monsters from Survival’s End or Treacherous Trap Hole.
Dino Survival's End Matchups (Favorable)
Six Style - Dual Wield allows you to return cards such as Paleozoic Marrella and Survivals End to the opponent’s hand during the End Phase of the turn they were Set, preventing the opponent from activating them and setting up properly.
Paleozoic Canadia can be used to flip Secret Six Samurai - Fuma face-down and prevent you from Synchro Summoning Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En and the Level 1 Tuner is not able to protect your monsters from Survival’s End, but the opponent will generally run out or resources before you do.
Geartown Turbo Matchups (Favorable)
If Ancient Gear Fortress is active, during the turn it was Summoned, Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon cannot be targeted by Six Style - Dual Wield (or Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi), which is your most efficient way of dealing with big threats, but you can still use your Trap Card to return Geartown and Fortress to your opponent’s hand, preventing Reactor Dragon from being Summoned in the first place.
However, Koa'ki Meiru Ice’s effect can be activated multiple times, which means that, with enough cards in their hand, your opponent will eventually be able to destroy your Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En. If your opponent controls only one card or your only “Six Samurai” monster leaves the field, Six Style - Dual Wield will be completely useless.
Six Style - Dual Wield and Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi can get rid of Silent Magician without destroying it and Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En can negate Spellbook of Secrets or Spellbook of Fate, if you want your opponent to go through some of their resources first. Silent Magician LV8 can be a bit of an issue because of its high ATK, but it’s only immune to Spell Cards, not Trap Cards or monster effects.
Yubel Matchups (Favorable)
Chain Six Style - Dual Wield or Legendary Six Samurai - Enishi’s effect to Yubel - Terror Incarnate’s or any other card or effect to make Terror Incarnate’s floating effect miss the timing or negate the activation of Fire King Island with Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En to prevent Yubel from being Summoned in the first place.
= In the face of this man, you can see the EPITOME OF INTENSE INBREEDING. =
• His intelligence is so LOW that this man believes posting spam here and telling everyone "the game's population decreased" is going to kill Duel Links.
• This man has tried to damage the sales of this game by filling the global chat with Bots, by bribing content creators like James Warai in order to make them say bad things about this game.
• He tries his best to make people believe the game is Pay-To-Win all across the internet, BUT HE FAILS BECAUSE HE'S A FAILED ATTEMPT OF A MAN AND A DISGRACE FOR THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND.
• After more than one year of constant attacks against Duel Links, the META is more diverse than ever and that surely pisses him off. Useless man.
I need to find Germans in the internet. I need to find enemies of my Nation... I need to find... enemies of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. Where can they be? ... hmmm... maybe... iN a mObIlE cArD gAmE.
Sure thing this man is not INBRED.
The queen needs to EXECUTE HIM.
Broken when it is too consistent like vampires before. Many decks survived the first nerf then they will nerf it again. 6 sam is the most consistent deck now. Better than the rest, at least it won't break so easily.
People like to cry about this deck for some reason... more than ANY other deck ... I don't get it ... isn't getting luck sacked more infuriating? with six sams, at least you know what you lost to and can learn from it

This deck needs another hit soon. Hopefully Fuma limited or semi-limited
I spent shit tons of gems and money to build this deck and i wanted to build it not because it was strong but it was my favorite archetype in the entire game. And what happend now? Konami just nerfed them in 20 days, 20 freaking days man. Like i didn't wanted it to stay tier 1 forever but at least i would want it to stay competitive for 3 months without nerfs. Just like koakis, vamps and many other decks. And funny thing is six sams are already tier 3 even though the nerf haven't applied yet. I don't know man its just feels like konami is being unfair. Feelsbadman.
