You can Special Summon this card (from your hand) by banishing 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster from your Graveyard. Once per turn: You can send 1 Dragon-Type monster from your hand and 1 Dragon-Type monster from your Deck to the Graveyard, then target 1 card in either Graveyard; banish that target.

How to get / rarity

Level-up reward--
Victory againstMokuba Kaiba Lv30 or higher [UR]
Card trader--




  • Decent attack.
  • Special summon condition is not difficult, and not restricted to a certain monster type.
  • Not restricted to special summon only, so it can be tribute summoned normally using 1 monster.
  • Can banish a card from either player's graveyard, to either prevent your opponent's plays or special summon banished monsters.


  • Very low defense.
  • Special summon requires the 2 Light and Dark monsters to be in the graveyard.
  • Banishing a card in the graveyard requires 2 card discard, and they both need to be Dragon-type monsters.

Tips, related cards, skills

Red-Eyes Spirit

Using Darkflare Dragon's second effect, you can discard a Red-Eyes monster from your hand or deck to the graveyard. This will make special summoning them through Red-Eyes Spirit much easier.

Kidmodo Dragon

As long as this card gets sent to the graveyard, whether it's from your hand, field, or deck, you can special summon a Dragon-type monster from your hand.

Return from the graveyard

Darkflare's effect to send a monster from your deck to the graveyard can be treated as a search card if you are using cards that can bring them to the field, or to your hand.

  • The Shallow Grave - Can only be used if you, and your opponent, has at least 1 monster in their graveyards (and an empty monster zone), but you won't be able to flip summon your monster the turn you use this.
  • Monster Reincarnation - You can use Darkflare's effect to send another Darkflare from your deck, then use Monster Reincarnation to get it to your hand so you can special summon it, but only if you have the required monsters in the graveyard.
  • Soul Resurrection - Easiest way to special summon a monster from the graveyard, but this only works for normal monsters, and will be destroyed if this card is destroyed.

Special summon banished monster(s)

You can use Darkflare's effect to banish a card from your opponent's graveyard to stop certain plays, or banish monsters so you can special summon them if you use certain cards.

  • Escape from the Dark Dimension - Only for a Dark monster that you banish from your graveyard, but it's an equip card, which can make your monster vulnerable if this equip card is destroyed.
  • Spiritual Light Art - Hijiri - This requires a tribute of a Light monster, and can be negated, but can special summon your opponent's banished monster.

I agree skelengel for draw or bls summon or even flare fuel. I'd keep the synthesis ritual. But take the other out maybe DNA check up or jar of greed. I find shard too slow I agree on deokichi as it's draw power and moderate attack power if it lives. Aura priest and deokichi is better for bls and doesn't waste dark flare giving you another special summon

I didn't say it was bad. I just saw one area it needs help and that's draw power. If you want I can duel you with one of my dark flare decks.

Yeah I guess if your riding that many Kuriboh balls, anything can sync and survive 5 turns. -.-

Kuriboh not only good for stallng, but it is also dark monster which will help special summoning Darkflare. However you can replace Kuriboh with Dekoichi or Dark Mimic

Yup, it's for storm fodder on last turn. You can use any field spell and set it on the field

So far this is the best build for dark flare I've had the most wins with. With what I have I need 2 vc maybe a third Econ and third kidmono.

Is having a third kaibaman ok with that deck?
<< Anonymous
Razaelriezen 27days ago Reply
I've honestly opened too many times with 3 kaiba man draws and get beat because I'd draw one. It's why I have monster reincarnation in it so I can ditch a dark monster for kaiba and summon s blue eyes fueling my grave with a much needed dark or send kaiba for de train for draw power. Let's you A ss a blue eyes or a dark flare or give you a monster for defense of truly needed
Anoymous 27days ago
Don't forget that senju of the 1000 hands is a light monster and this card fits super easy in any ritual deck and allows 3 summons in 1 turn. Just throw dunames in there for a beater for even more support.
