Card Effect TypeSummoning condition / Trigger Effect


This card cannot be Normal Summoned or Set. This card cannot be Special Summoned except by paying 500 Life Points when both "Andro Sphinx" and "Sphinx Teleia" on your side of the field are destroyed at the same time; then you can Special Summon this monster from your hand or Deck. When this card is Special Summoned successfully, pay 500 Life Points to increase the ATK of this card by 3000 points until the end of the End Phase.

How to Get

PackGalactic Origin [SR]
Level-up reward--
Victory against--
Card trader--




  • Very powerful ATK and DEF stats.
  • Can further increase another 3000 ATK till End Phase by paying 500 Life Points.


  • Challenging Special Summon conditions.


Archetype Combo

These are the cards that are required on your field before you are able to summon Theinen.

Support Cards

These cards can be used to remove Pyramid of Light to trigger the condition to summon Theinen, at the same time eliminate most of your opponent’s backrow. If Wild Tornado is also destroyed, you can destroy opponent’s face up monster as well. Since Pyramid of Light is destroyed, results in Andro Sphinx and Sphinx Teleia being destroyed and removed from play simultaneously, you are now able to Special Summon Theinen. Theinen is able to end the game easier since there are no backrows to worry about, but still susceptible to Sphere Kuribohs. Since it costs Life Points to get this far, it is suggested you have some healing cards in your deck as well.

Obviously a work in progress. I might swap out life boost for destiny draw and work in anti magic arrows somewhere

I agree. Sphere is still well in play. In both Gold-Legend I run into players often with multiple copies.

90 freaking packs open and still only 1 Andro Sphinx. Aside from that, what do you think about my shitty meme deck?

Sphynx stats are great but....WHAT IS THE FUCKING POINT KONAMI IF YOU HAVENT LIMITED SHIT LIKE SUPER RUSH, e-CON OR TRIBUTE TO THE DOOM WTF WHY ARE YOU RELEASING CARDS THAT ARE NOT EVEN IMMUNE TO THE SHIT THAT A MAJORITY OF SPELLS AND TRAPS PEOPLE ARE PLAYING HUH. PPL GO THROUGH ALL THE TROUBLE JUST TO GET SPHYNX AND BAM TRIBUTE TO THE DOOM or super rush eliminate those fucking cards and we can actually start seeing monsters and archtypes do what the fuck they are supposed to fucking do, some of th emost powerful monsters in the game fall victim to the sluttiest most abused cards in the fucking game no wonder ppl rather play against AI the multiplayer is littered with bullshit that prevents you from even playing a archtype

The fact that it doesnt work with storm really, really, REALLY hurts this card. Time to drop that rating down to 3. Easily the 2nd worst super rare in the worst box

Yes for Storm... But worst box? A box that contain every cards needed to build an GB deck can't be the worst box.

Twister works too. Storm misses timing.

If Storm can't be used to clear your opponent backrow while summon Theinen, it's shit... This deck goes from B- to D-Tier...

Don't bother with this crap lol, so much bullshit and resources used just to summon 1 stupid monster that is easily taken by your opponent.

I used Storm to destroy Pyramid of Light with Andro and Teleia on the field. Nothing happened while Theinen was in my hand. A few turns later, I did it again, and it worked: I summoned Theinen from my hand. Can someone explain this to me?

I bet because you used a card like Twister, which doesn't make Theinen miss the timing, like Storm does once it makes the last thing to happen to have been your opponent's S/T being destroyed.

Tried storming pyramid to summon this but nothing happened. Is it a bug or should I run twister instead

It isn't a glitch. I explained why Storm makes Theinen miss timing in a comment earlier.

This guy only looks powerful in Pyramid of Light movie (Pyramid of Light as added effect of negating God cards presence which is not even in the new pack's description). When it comes to duel links, good luck in getting it out. Everything fails to ECON take and SRH and those wall traps, and oh jolly floodgate.

Now now, there's no need for that Anon. However Risebell, using a card name, I did clearly state before that I've yet to test the Sphinx cards myself (and still haven't knowing the glitches/errors) so your little comment is easily seen as completely unnecessary & sorta stupid.

Are you sure you aren't stupid as well? You haven't tried it yet but you talk like a great bitch here. So no, you are the better idiot here.

I'm gonna leave ya at "If you think so" and be done with this thread. We already confirm the glitches & just waiting on a fix. Everything else is needless.
