This card can attack your opponent directly, but when it does so using this effect, the battle damage inflicted to your opponent is the original ATK of this card. At the end of the Damage Step, if this card attacked or was attacked: You can change this card to Defense Position.




  • Can attack directly.
  • Direct attack damage stays at 800, even if its attack is lowered (unless its attack is 0)


  • Low attack.
  • Direct attack damage stays at 800, even if its attack is increased.


Even if your attack is reduced from Tryce's effect, it will still deal 800 damage per hit. Ignoring your opponent's monster, if your attacks aren't negated, you can deal 1600 damage per turn. You can pair this up with cards like Anti-Magic Arrows to make sure your attacks go through, or Super Rush Headlong for protection.

Something is off, submarineroid has been working perfectly for over a year now, but ever since the update of the tag duel tournament, it is broken. When I select it and order it to attack directly, it suddenly attacks one of the opposing monsters. It is very annoying, since with 800attck it is obvious NOT what you want. This just keeps happening day after day. Bloody disgrace, because it is ruining PvP duels.

Maybe your hand is slipped during you swipe to attack using it. This card says that it can attack directly
MORE burn support?

Seems like no. When my Submarineroid was hit with WoD and got 0ATK it attacked directly (specifically with opponent monsters still on the field) and it didn't do squat.

It needs to actually be dealing battle damage for that damage to become 800.

With 0 atk it cannot inflict damage, so that effect does not count. 0 atk sometimes have seemingly wierd interactions. This is one of them. An other is Slyfer's effect can't destroy a monster that has 0 atk when summoned.

Seems like they fixed that :) I love it now when players panic and use wall of disruption and you still blast them with 800 points of damage XD
This card deserves an A as it goes good in any deck, not just Vehicroids.

It can do good in any deck, but it hasn't got any syn-energy with other cards. It is very good on its own or when you enhance it with other cards (like spikeshield, halfshut etc..), but it doesn't enhance other cards in your deck. There are a lot of decks where this machine card would be a wasted slot.
Normally even though the Atck is lowered it still does the 800 dmg to an opponent, which makes it a very powerfull card. I have found a lot of PvP duels in which someone used wall of disruption and clearly didn't understand the text, since it always does 800 dmg to an opponent. However, someone just used Dark Jeroid and suddenly my submarine didn't do its original attck anymore. Apparently there is a difference between the -800 from wall of disruption and the -800 from Dark Jeroid. Neither card says anything about original attck points. Which is a bit confusing I think... :(

Keep in mind it only applies its original ATK when it attacks directly via its effect. A regular direct attack from the opponent having no monsters or the like will use its current ATK.

I fail to see how this comment is relevant. As I said, someone used Dark Jeroid and my submarine didn't do its original attck anymore via a direct attack. So Dark Jeroid STILL WAS on the field on my opponents side. While wall of disruption in other PvP duels were pointless, cause there it DID do its original attck points. -800 from Jeroid's seems to work differently from disruption's -800.
I love how Submarineroid has that smug face going on, like if it were saying "Say, those are some nice life points you got there... would be a shame if i could attack you directly..."
Why does umi lower direct damage from this card it should do 800 unless it’s 0?

This card + Sleight of Hands 7 Completed = Victory.

Seriously, this is how I won a couple tough duels.

Except the fact that when it attacks directly the damage is always the original attack...

Maybe he buffed his def, so no monster can 🔥 his sub easily?

IMO Spikeshield with Chain is better if that's the intention
Thanks for the tips. I got a prismatic version so will give a direct attack deck a go :)

Me too hahaha
This + twin swords of flashing light tryce ( if, I'm not mistaken) = good combo 1.6k per turn, but if temple of the minds eye is active, will it be 2k or just. 1.6k damage?

if temple of the minds eye isn't activated, the damage from submarineroid is ALWAYS 800 ATK because his normal ATK are 800. If you read his Effekt one more time then you know what I mean ;)

There are cards that can alter original ATK. Adhesion Trap Hole and Shield & Sword are the only player-obtainable cards currently that can though I believe.
