  • Can special summon a monster from your hand.
  • Has piercing effect.


  • Average attack and low defense.
  • Can only special summon D Hero monsters from your hand, and it needs to have the same attack or lower.


Increasing attack

Since it's attack can be pretty low in comparison to many commonly used level 4 monsters, you can increase its attack by using skills that give you the field spells, or bringing them in the deck. Joey's exclusive skill "Fields of the Warriors" gives you Sogen at the start of the duel, and Aster's skill "Destiny Calling" is for Dark City when your LP is at 3000 or lower.

Other D Heroes

Many of the level 4 or lower monsters have about 1600 or less attack, making them able to be special summoned if you also have these in your hand. They can be good in certain situations, but it's mostly good if paired up with The A. Forces to bump up your attack.


A good option to special summon using Drilldark's effect is to special summon Celestial. It has an effect that can destroy your opponent's face-up spell card when it declares an attack, but it also has an effect that lets you draw 2 cards when you have no cards in hand. This makes it so that even if it gets destroyed, it sets you up for your later turns, or get some of your resources back when you fusion summon Destiny HERO - Dangerous.

He isn't bad for some Xyz summoning if you just want to try adding something different to a destiny hero deck.
They need to add stronger destiny heroes, I know they have weak ATK and DEF but can't build a deck around them atm unlike elemental heroes

1600 ATK is fine, since that's Drilldark's limit for its effect.

There are plenty of ways to boost their ATK anyway.

elemental heros is basicly brave neos and neos cant build a deck on that but with desinty heroes you have anki at least so you CAN build a deck unlike you said.if blazemen could send any hero then you could mix it with desitiny and it would be a more viable option.heroes are basicly brave neos and anki.

Drillguy in Japanese. All D-Heroes except for Plasma end with 'guy' in Japanese.
Say, can he summon double dude?, since he has lower attack but it's a hight level I was wondering

The very first text of Double Dude is "Cannot be Special Summoned"......
I'm Wondering why with drilldark's effect, you can't special summon D hero Double dude. Like, his attack is less than 1600 so

Because Double Dude can't be special summoned.

Well that's the trouble though it's a Level 6 monster and he cannot be special summoned with Drilldarks effect
When this dude hits a facedown vampire, the OTK is easy ^^
It's Drilldark NOT DrillGuy...

I don't watch yugioh nor play it. So I don't understand why they don't standardize everything. Example: why Japanese name and English name? They could just use their original name in duel link.. You don't see toei rename son goku in DB FighterZ to Joseph Sun or something

There's plenty of reasons to localize things. Making them more memorable to other audiences, more relatable, certain things being untranslatable (like most of the Frog names for example), etc. Either way, it's the lack of consistency here that bothers me most. Most of the site uses TCG names. So all of it should be TCG names. You don't see Polymerization being called "Fusion" here, after all.

Yeah same like umi, yami, sogen.

Then they rename jyudai to a lady name "yuki"

....actually, the Yuki part also exist in the Japanese version. His name was Judai Yuki.

The only change was Judai being changed to Jaden.
If you are hoping to bait your opponent into using a facedown, it can come across even better if you make it look like you are just trying to summon this guy to use his effect to swarm the field. My opponent used Gale Lizard's effect on my Trinity. Not long after, I summon Drilldark and start to use his effect. Sure enough, he Floodgates it. But what my opponent was not counting on was my second Polymerization waiting in my hand. Trinity is back and I win the duel. If I had had used Polymerization first, I would have lost my chance for the 🔥 then.
how can find this card?
1 drill should be on the crotch.
Drilldark cooler than drillguy
I want him, i need my D-HERO's from ARC-V, i need my Dystopiaguy
