  • Can special summon another copy of himself.


  • Second effect will only be useful if your opponent didn’t read this card’s effect.
  • Attack gain is dependent on the number of EARTH Warrior Synchro monsters you control. Which is difficult to make multiple of.



You can Normal Summon a level-1 Tuner while Quillbolt hedgehog is in your graveyard. Quillbolt Hedgehog will special summon himself and you can use both monsters to Synchro summon. You can also special summon Goyo Defender with a copy of himself on the field.

EARTH Warrior Synchro

Here are the EARTH Warrior monsters that will help Goyo Defender boost himself.


X-Saber decks are able to Synchro Summon and their extra deck line-up is full of EARTH Warrior-type monsters which work with Goyo Defender.

There's only 1.5 LV2 Synchros that AREN'T Tuners. (Assault Blackwing - Sayo the Rain Hider isn't one by default, but becomes one if you use a Blackwing to Synchro Summon it.) T.G. Recipro Dragonfly is the only one that is purely just a non-Tuner.
Only Goyo Chaser on the field and l cant summon it. What am l doing wrong? Is it bugged?

I'd imagine along the lines of What Grows in the Graveyard puts Dark Verger in the Graveyard, you Normal Summon Spore, Synchro into Defender, Defender into Defender, use Spore's effect to Summon it by banishing Verger.
goyo defender is a good card to get out a quick synchro monster

However, note that this card only Special Summons copies of itself, it does not Synchro Summon them properly.

Nothing. The special summon is Defender's on field effect so he is useless af unless we can get it as a drop reward
I understand that there are better Goyo’s you can get from the skill, but it’s best to think of it as After you’ve Synchro Summoned another Goyo, or X Saber, or any other Earth-Warrior Synchro, unless you had 3 monsters on the field before the Synchro and only used 2, you get to Special Summon this thing for no Extra Cost, either to be a 2000 Attack monster if your opponent attacks it before the other Synchro is removed, or as a Level 3 that can be used as Synchro Material

Um. One of the traps /doubles/ both attack AND defense of your monster for one turn.
You're both wrong - it wouldn't be able to attack.
Uhm you just repeated what anon 1 and 3 said.
It's not a quick effect, in case you mean you want to disrupt your opponent during their turn
