  • It can be searched from the deck by Gateway to Chaos.
  • You can normal summon this card without any tributes.
  • Very strong stats when summoned without tributes.


  • Can only be normal summoned when this is the only card in your hand.
  • Weak stats for a 2 tribute monster.


Removing cards from hand

Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight has a great synergy with Wonder Balloons. Send cards from your hand to the Graveyard until Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight is left. By doing this, you can reduce your opponent's monsters attack and you can use Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight's effect which is you can normal summon it without any tributes.

Handless Synergy

Flash Assailant is a good monster to be partnered with Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight, since it can obtain its maximum attack and defense by having no cards in hand.

Searching from deck

Currently, we can only obtain 1 copy of Swift Gaia the Fierce Knight which makes it hard to draw. By using Gateway to Chaos, you can easily search it from your deck and add it to your hand.

He meant the real game, not Duel Links.
Wow i went from having zero of these and aafter 1 hour a have 3 copies. Now to combine them with my three Wonder Balloons
Can we get a couple more copies of this card. I'd like them for my black luster soldier deck for searchable tributes. I don't think this card is to op to give more then 1.

Some EX Card Traders have this card for special events for 100 GX orbs. Also they had a Duel-A-Thon event for a second copy, so they might bring that back.
Great card but should be level 6

With that pitiful ATK, yeah probably. But the original Gaia the Fierce Knight was level 7, so they're sticking to that theme. Besides, the level doesn't matter if you get it's effect off.
I wonder if his friends (Arisen, Charging) would come to the game, but it'd be too good for BLS deck.

If they only give you one copy it wouldn't be too good. It would be good but not broken, cause in some match ups it just wouldn't be useful, for example burn cause in burn they don't really summon so his special effect doesn't work and you'd never have enough tributes on the field.
I actually have 3 copies... from Yugi, from Duel-A-Thon and from exchanging green EX orbs with the trader on Crowler event... I got lucky actually...
Fastest high damage monster in the game, if you're using a handless deck. Could potentially be better than red eyes.

Blue eyes would beg to differ. Considering u can summon him first turn with a whopping 3000 attack using Kaibaman.

Silent Magician Lv. 8 would like a word... Summon her first turn with an impressive 3500 attack+ the ability to completely ignore all spell cards simply by using level up on a Silent Magician level 4.

You can find it in the card trader store as a yu-gi-oh GX tricky test thingy exclusive reward. Pay 100 of the event orbs for it.
it doesn't work in competitive, anyone else?
